Russell Wilson spared during Jalen Ramsey’s honest assessment on QBs

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Minicamp Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Ramsey was in the news recently for being in trouble in Jacksonville and getting suspended for a week, but the Jaguars cornerback is the talk of the NFL again on Wednesday and whether or not you love him or hate him might depend on who your favorite quarterback is. In an interview with GQ, Ramsey once again (like he did with Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this offseason) told his honest opinion on the league’s quarterbacks of today and he spared nobody that he felt should be spared.

Sounding more like a dude on Twitter than a dude who will be on the field facing these quarterbacks this season (not that acting this way is a bad thing, I personally love it), here are a few of the players that Ramsey took his biggest shots at:

  • Josh Allen is trash
  • Ben Roethlisberger is decent at best
  • Andrew Luck is not that good
  • Eli Manning is nothing with Odell Beckham
  • Matt Ryan is overrated
  • Has not heard good things about Ryan Tannehill
  • Jared Goff is (like Garoppolo) mostly successful because of his offensive coordinator

On the other hand, Ramsey was doling out praise for others, saying that DeShaun Watson and Carson Wentz would be trading off MVPs for the next 10 years. And as far as Russell Wilson, who Ramsey did face and beat last season, he said “...good. I think he’s just a really good leader too.”

He’s opened the conversation once again and unlike a rather innocuous comment against Garoppolo, Ramsey was much more blunt this time around. How can any fan not appreciate that?
