Jalen Ramsey Makes Headlines

Via Daily Shark

Jalen Ramsey has been making headlines after a no-holes-barred interview with GQ, holding nothing back. He didn’t care what was coming out of his mouth.

Ramsey isn’t sold on the Buffalo Bills pick Josh Allen. Ramsey said “I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that. He never beat a big school.”

Matt Ryan Is Overrated According To Ramsey

Aaron Rodgers andTom Brady don’t suck in his opinion, but Matt Ryan is also trash. “I think Matt Ryan’s overrated. You can’t tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones? There’s no way that should ever happen. I don’t care. ” Ramsey on his teammate Blake Bortles he said “Blake do what he gotta do… I think in crunch time moments, like last year’s playoff game—not as a team, because we would have trusted him—but I think as an organization, we should have trusted him more to keep throwing it. We kinda got complacent and conservative. And I think that’s why we lost. We started running it on first and second down, throwing it on third down, every single time we were out there. [The Patriots] caught on to that.”

Does The NFL Need More Of This?

Does the NFL need more outspoken players like Ramsey with personality? The answer is yes, the more outspoken players who say what’s really on their mind the better, and makes the game more fun. The Jaguars game against the Bills this year is now a must watch after Ramsey’s comments.

As for the Patriots, if you’ve watched Hard Knocks with the Cleveland Browns, you’ve seen the dysfunctional mess of that that team. From Hue Jackson to his players there’s no discipline or attention from Jackson’s own coaching staff. Meanwhile, the Patriots win every year and everyone is talking about rifts and friction.  Yes, there’s tension but I’d rather be the Patriots with their tension and go to Super Bowls rather than the Cleveland Browns and go 1-16 every season.
