American Football – NFL: Lamar Jackson Still Given Preference Over Joe Flacco
Joe Flacco is prepared to play without precedent for over 1 month, yet Lamar Jackson is currently the Baltimore Ravens’ top preference best decision at quarterback.
Mentor John Harbaugh declared on Wednesday that Jackson will get the beginning this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Flacco the number two alternative and Robert Griffin III behind them.
Jackson assumed control as Baltimore’s starter after Flacco’s right hip was injured in an early November misfortune to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Ravens have won three of four from that point forward, with Jackson changing the look of the offense as a genuine quarterback. The 32nd pick in the current year’s draft has averaged 84 yards in his last 4 four games, offsetting an occasionally unpredictable passing game.
Harbaugh said the choice was only a question of deciding “what makes us the strongest possible team we can be,” however it speaks to a critical takeoff following a time of having Flacco under centre.
The 33-year-old has been Baltimore’s starter since Week 1 of the 2008 season and has never showed up in a match in which he did not begin, yet the mentor says his took the downgrade well.
#Ravens coach John Harbaugh made what was clear official: QB Lamar Jackson will start and former starter Joe Flacco will be the backup. Changing of the guard in Baltimore.

Just my thought, but Joe Flacco has got to be the worst veteran QB to mentor a young Rookie QB. He literally has no intentions on helping Lamar become a better passing QB. #nfl

Joe Flacco on being demoted to backup quarterback: “My overall thought about is obviously disappointed that I can’t be part of this team in the same capacity I have been for a long time. You always have to be ready and stay sharp and be ready to get the call at any point.”
