The Ravens finished 10-6 in 2018 and won the AFC North thanks to the efforts of Lamar Jackson after Joe Flacco went down with an injury. Baltimore decided to make Jackson the permanent starter after how well he played in Flacco’s absence. Jackson went 6-2 in that span and is already on his way to being one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the NFL.
Fans knew Jackson for making solid plays throwing the ball but mostly for putting in the most work by scrambling. Ravens team owner Steve Bisciotti doesn’t feel like that’ll be the case in 2019 though. In a phone call with season ticket holders, he said he doesn’t Jackson to be running so much compared to 2018.
“I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised that Lamar is not going to be running 20 times a game,” Bisciotti said during the call. (Via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.) “That’s not what this offense is about. “Everything falls to Lamar. We believe in him. We believe he’s going to be great. He desires to be great. We will continue to build the team around his strengths and he’ll continue to work on his weaknesses.”
Bisciotti sounds like he believes that Jackson can succeed in and out of the pocket. He has a lot of faith in him right now and sees Jackson improving on every aspect of his as a QB. He can definitely deliver accurate throws and make plays on the ground. Based on his potential as a result of his solid 2018 campaign, the Ravens should still be in the mix to win the North again.
