A lot for the notion of a pleasant quiet week by which to sit down again and maybe ponder a latest suspension.

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, suspended every week for “violating group guidelines and conduct unbecoming a Jaguars participant,” is making headlines once more with the publication of a GQ interview by which he rips numerous NFL quarterbacks — a few of whom the Jags should face — whereas merely providing a frank evaluation of others.

Among the many issues Ramsey thinks: Josh Allen “is trash.” Jimmy Garoppolo is “all schemes, however I suppose you possibly can say he’s good.” Jared Goff is “common to above common.” He feels that Odell Beckham Jr. does extra of the heavy lifting than Eli Manning. Ben Roethlisberger “ain’t all that.” Joe Flacco “sucks.” Matt Ryan’s “overrated.” Andrew Luck’s success is generally the work of T.Y. Hilton, he mentioned of a quarterback he’ll face twice. Dak Prescott appears to fall in between as a result of his offense depends on Ezekiel Elliott: “He’s good. He’s all proper. He’s okay.” Tyrod Taylor is a greater QB than individuals assume.

Some quarterbacks, Ramsey permits, are fairly good, guys like Derek Carr, Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz and Aaron Rodgers. (A few of these, it must be famous, would carve him like a Thanksgiving turkey if he talked trash about them.) Marcus Mariota, whom the Jags will face twice, is “an awesome quarterback for his or her group.” Kirk Cousins is a “hell of a competitor” who “coming off play motion,” is the “finest quarterback within the league.”

And what about his man, Blake Bortles?

“Blake do what he gotta do … I feel in crunchtime moments, like final yr’s playoff sport — not as a group, as a result of we’d have trusted him — however I feel as a corporation, we should always have trusted him extra to maintain throwing it. We kinda obtained complacent and conservative,” he instructed Clay Skipper. “And I feel that’s why we misplaced. We began operating it on first and second down, throwing it on third down, each single time we have been on the market. [The Patriots] caught on to that.”

These are some open and meaty observations, the type that Tom Coughlin, Jacksonville’s vp of soccer operations, usually takes actually poorly. Ramsey was interviewed in late Might, however the quotes are simply hitting now, coinciding along with his week off. As Mike Tomlin likes to say, such is life.

Subsequent, let’s go to his observations on Lamar Jackson, the Heisman winner who was the final participant taken within the first spherical of final spring’s draft. “If all these groups have been wanting [Cleveland Browns’ No. 1 overall pick] Baker [Mayfield] so dangerous — Baker compares higher with Lamar than any of these different quarterbacks. So if they need that sort of quarterback — assured, get out the pocket, throw on the run, huge performs, charisma — then yeah, I perceive Baker going primary. But when all the opposite individuals have been competing and wanting Baker, too, then why wasn’t Lamar the second quarterback chosen?”

The second QB was Sam Darnold, who went to the Jets. Which brings us to the third QB taken, the Payments’ Allen.

“I feel Allen is trash. I don’t care what no one say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna present too. That’s a silly draft decide to me. We play them this yr, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their beginning quarterback.”

Ramsey predicts huge issues for Jackson as a result of Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg “likes operating quarterbacks, likes that learn possibility. And simply being trustworthy about it, Flacco sucks. I performed him two years in a row. He sucks.”

After which there’s Garoppolo.

“I don’t know but,” Ramsey mentioned, when requested if he believed final yr’s hype. “Simply trigger once they beat us, his hype picked up. They have been like, ‘He beat the primary protection.’ It was all schemes. He didn’t beat us. It wasn’t like he diced us up. It was actually all schemes. They have been doing flat routes to the huge open fullback, and he’s operating for 20 yards down the sector 4 occasions through the sport. . . . So he didn’t actually cube us up. It was their fullback and their tight finish on over routes. But when you understand how to work inside your scheme then it means you’re good. I suppose you possibly can say he’s good.”

For what it’s value, NFL Analysis did a bit of digging in an effort to find out simply how Ramsey has carried out all through his profession when dealing with the quarterbacks he named within the interview.

Ramsey was suspended for cursing at media members who filmed a post-practice incident involving teammate Dante Fowler Jr., who additionally will get to take the week off. All in all, that’s fairly every week for a group almost reached the Tremendous Bowl and is without doubt one of the NFL’s most extremely regarded for 2018. By no means thoughts that Ramsey’s observations is likely to be fairly correct, they’re a distraction that gained’t assist overcome the impression that the group has left on one unnamed AFC assistant coach.

“The best risk the Jaguars face,” the assistant coach instructed Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, “is believing their very own hype.”
