Jalen Ramsey: I told A.J. Green he’s soft and weak, which is true

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey acknowledges he said things that got under Bengals receiver A.J. Green‘s skin before both were ejected for fighting on Sunday. But Ramsey said all he told Green was an accurate assessment of what kind of player he is.

Ramsey said today that he wasn’t saying anything about Green personally, but he did have plenty to say about Green as a player.

“I told Green he was soft and weak. Which is true. I was out there spitting facts,” Ramsey said, via Brian Chojnacki‏ of WTLV in Jacksonville.

Green and Ramsey were seen going back and forth on the field before Ramsey shoved Green to the ground, at which point Green got up and launched a full-on MMA-style attack on Green, landing several punches on the ground and attempting a rear-naked choke. It was a vicious fight between the two of them, and apparently it was preceded by some vicious put-downs.

  1. ” at which point Green got up and launched a full-on MMA-style attack on Green, landing several punches on the ground and attempting a rear-naked choke.” looks like it was fight club all over again…

  2. Jalen Ramsey talks a lot of trash for a player that just came in the NFL a year ago, A.J. Green has been a proven veteran and one of the better receivers in the NFL. His stats definitely show he is not soft and weak. If Jalen keeps up this trash talking, someone is going to hurt him more than A.J. Green did on Sunday!!

    Evidently, that little twerp Ramsey hasn’t watched much film of A.J. Green. He’s a top NFL receiver.
    ——————————-
    1 catch, 6 yards.

  4. Ok…you’re an idiot if you try to punch someone who is wearing a helmet that covers their ENTIRE HEAD. Green is lucky he didn’t break his hand.

  5. I do like how Ramsey gets under people’s skin. I love players that make others angry, it’s a man’s sport, not everybody is supposed to be friends. If he can piss AJ Green off, he can piss anybody off. Just needs to work on getting away with things like pushes, so he can look like the innocent one and not get ejected as well.

  6. So the guy who got slammed and 2 pieced by AJ in the middle of a televised NFL game thinks he’s soft?

    I guess you missed the part that said that he got ejected?

  8. I don’t care for either team or either player, but this is goood stuff. I would rather see this soap opera than the usual bore of sub par games so far this year or all the off field legal drama. It’s getting nauseating. Let’s get it ON!!

    What “slam”? He was tackled from behind with his arms up in the air.

    As someone else mentioned he was ejected at half and if you actually watched the game instead of just looked at the final stats you would have seen him burn him for an easy TD if Dalton could keep the ball in bounds. He blew by Ramsey. Ramsey is lucky Dalton was the qb and his o-line sucks.

  11. Who do you think taught Jalen to be a savage like that? Coughlin or Jax HQ? Heck no, Leonard promotes savage attitude from the top down as a United Team Attitutde. And yall benched him. Investigate it.

  12. “Spitting facts”–

    Look at the bright side Turdsey. If you didn’t have a target on you before, you have a target now. A.J. Bouye will be thanking you for the decrease in throws his way.

  13. You AJ apologists can say all you want, but Jalen is already closer to being at the top at his position (I say he’s already #1, but I admit my bias) in less than a season and a half than AJ has ever been in his entire career. Don’t get me wrong, I like AJ, but nothing about Jalen’s comments ring untrue. Being a top 10 receiver and being ‘soft and weak’ aren’t mutually exclusive. You can put up big numbers overall and be really really good, but struggle against a bigger DB. Jalen has handled every receiver he has faced with the only exception being 1/2 of football against Alshon Jeffery, but still came back to lock him down in the 2nd 1/2.

    Jalen is a straight up beast DB and if you can’t be objective about that, than I have no use for you because you can’t get past a bias.

  14. Football isn’t changing as much as the fans are. Read every comment on here and I’m puzzled…do any of you watch the games or even know the players?! Jalen Ramsey is a flat out threat to ANY receiver in the league. He is one of the most bothersome CBs in the league right now. AJ Green is great but he went up against another player (ramsey) who doesn’t care who Green is. Most WRs want to be treated with respect and fear…it didn’t happen on Sunday. Just look back to obj vs Josh Norman 2 years ago. Same situation…wr got man handled so he threw a tantrum in the game and started fighting to distract from him being shut down. Ask Big Ben about Ramsey.

  15. No suspensions either good thing the NFL is consistent. So obviously nobody understands the catch rule and nobody understands what warrants a suspension for fights on the field.

  16. Get AJ out of Cincy, the Bengals trashy ways are rubbing off on him.

    Who else but the Bengals can take a quiet mild mannered respected guy like AJ Green and turn him into an off the handle hot head who thinks choking and punching dudes in the helmet is a good idea

    You want to give Ramsey credit for shutting him out in the 2nd half too?

    Based on the timeline, he said those things BEFORE Green gave him the business!

  19. Remember when Courtland Finnegan thought Andre Johnson was soft and weak? It ended pretty much the same way. Better learn to leave the quiet ones alone! Sometimes, these dudes just need to play their game without all the jaw-jacking. I know it’s hard to do, but it can be done.

  20. This is trash talk. It doesn’t even matter if it’s true, or if Ramsey has the credentials to rip AJ. All that matters is if it bothers AJ.

  21. I’m pretty sure the dude who is soft is the guy who snapped and pushed the other guy to the ground when his back was turned after the play. What did AJ say that made poor Ramsey take a cheap shot?

  22. Ramsey’s assessment of A J is spot on. He is soft and weak. He couldn’t handle the fact that Jalen Ramsey locked him down to 1 catch for 6 yards, so he had to revert to MMA tactics on the field for no reason. Good Job Jalen, your a Beast and a part of the NFL’s Best Overall Defense and the Best Secondary In The League … Go Jags !!!

  23. Good for Ramsey.

    It’s football.

    Those who are offended are the weakest of the weak.

    Green is a great receiver, but Ramsey won the day.

    Deal with it.

  24. I don’t agree with what A.J. Green did to Ramsey on Sunday, but I don’t believe for a second that Green is “soft and weak” Everyone has a bad day now and then. I was not going by his stats for one game. I meant overall. You won’t find many receivers better than him.

    Well….. via ejection… he did shut him out of the 2nd half lol

  27. Early in the game Green had Ramsey beat by a good three steps and was wide open for an easy touchdown but Andy Dalton missed the throw. This is true. Young punk vs. classy person and player.

  28. I agree with Jalen Ramsey on this. Everyone who is mentioning Aj Green trying to sell that love tap after the play as a “push” needs to get over themselves.

    In fairness he was ejected before halftime. But still, those are not good numbers outside of the first 3 mins of the game.

  30. As a lifelong Bengals fan, I can tell you, They ARE soft and weak!! The only player who brings it every week is Vontez Burfict.

  31. Come on… I would expect every corner in the league to be saying that to whomever they are covering. That’s nothing.

    Best way to deal with it is catch two TDs over him and promptly tell him he sucks. Not a choke hold.

  32. I’m stunned (not really) at the number of yokels sanctioning Green’s behavior. You got trashed by the Jaguars, ya humps. The entire and only focus of a football game is to get a W. Your team got whipped. Boast away.

  33. Honestly, how can anyone back what AJ did by calling him tough or that he whooped up on Ramsey? It was the equivalent of pushing someone and they throw a rock at your face. Dude got up from being pushed and went behind Ramsey, did a choke hold, and then threw him in the ground. Ramsey stunned and probably surprised this thing went 0-100mph put his hands straight up in the air and AJ again went behind him for a choke hold, ground throw, and then started punching a helmet with his hands (idiot).

    I guess he won “the fight” because the other guy was never fighting. Weird logic in this board if you actually watched it.

  34. Bob Lilly once crushed Jim Brown in the backfield. He went on to tell Brown that he stunk. Fast forward to a little later in the game, Brown breaks his tackle and runs for a TD. He yells back to Lilly from the end zone, “How do I smell from here?”

    A year in and he’s the best cornerback in football sooooo ok – your point is neither here nor there.

  36. I mean idk usually if you slam somebody from behind you should be able to keep them on the ground. What I saw was Green used his good posistion to slam him but struggled to keep him down and was about to get flipped when the rest of the jags came. I guess not hurting the person you’re fighting is winning a fight.

  37. In 10 years, AJ Green will be known for being one of the NFL’s greatest receiver and Ramsey will be known as that guy AJ beat up and would’ve killed him if his teammates didn’t rescue him!

  38. Like him or not – Jalen Ramsey is right now the best CB in the league. Might have been last year too – as a Rook.The dude is that good.

    Why are the Jags better this year? because FINALLY some of our high draft picks like Ramsey,Fournette, etc and big $$ FA like Calais are playing to the level that they were drafted or paid.

  39. Jalen Ramsay went to the school of Richard Sherman, Cortland Finnegan, and Josh Norman. Talk trash and try and get into the guys head. Makes your game look better. This kid even talked trash to Steve Smith, one of greatest.

  40. Ramsey did exactly what he’s paid to do….he shut down the other team’s best player.. One catch for 6 yards, and don’t blame all that on Dalton. I was at the game and no ref was pulling a flag until Green assaulted Ramsey from behnd. And Ramsey and the Jag’s are penalized the same as Green was his for body slams and multiple punches to Ramsey….Seriously? There’s constant trash-taklking in EVERY NFL game with no ejections of players. The Bengals, known for years for trying to instigate and intimidate (Burflict as an example for anyone who’s uninformes), got a beat down at their own game! If Ramsey is fined, NFL referee decisions continue to be disappointing and ridiculous!

    Green tossed him down twice. Ramsey didn’t do a thing about it. AJ Green is a stick figure and Ramsey still got tossed. It wouldn’t have been that hard for Ramsey to get Green off of him but he took to long and his teammates came and got Green off of him.

  42. Right or wrong…after getting cheap-shoted, assaulted, and ejected without fighting back, Ramsey went looking for Green inside the stadium to finish the fight. I guess Green didn’t want to come out of his locker room to get butt kicked by going face to face with Ramsey, Ramsey’s right….Green’s scared and weak!

    You should probably take the time to watch more Jaguar games before posting again.

  44. And there’s only one word to describe you, and I’m gonna spell it out for ya! S…A…W…F…T……ssaaaaWWWWFFFFtttt.

    Technically, yes. He got the man so shook he acted stupidly and got kicked out of the game. The only issue is he got kicked out as well.

  46. AJ Green throws a tantrum and gets himself ejected by attacking a man looking the other way cause Ramsey hurt his feelings? Maybe try ice dancing if you’re looking for an emotional sport AJ.

  47. Getting ejected and shutting down a receiver are not the same thing. Ask a coach if he’d rather have his starting DB in the game or sitting on the bench for the second half because he shoved someone he shouldn’t have.

    The more Ramsey talks the less I like him.

  48. Anyone who doesn’t like Ransey is pissed because he doesn’t play for their team. He’s in the Top 5 in the NFL for Passes Defensed and lowest QBR ratings with 2 picks (1 pick-6) and teams don’t even throw his way most games. Green was open and Dalton missed him on one play out of 34 so don’t blame Green’s poor performance on Dalton. Get your facts straight if you want comment in this space! Ramsey’s job was to shut down the Bengals best player….mission accomplished! And the Jags beat the Bengals at their own game by instigating, intimidating and dominating! I was at the game and love it…..Welcome to the party Pal (i.e. A J Green!), Buflict, Pacman, etc.)!
