Jalen Ramsey: Josh Allen is trash, Flacco sucks, Big Ben is decent, Matt Ryan overrated

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey hasn’t faced every NFL quarterback in his two-year career, but he’s watched enough to have strong opinions about them.

Among the quarterbacks Ramsey isn’t high on are Buffalo’s Josh Allen, Baltimore’s Joe Flacco, Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger and Atlanta’s Matt Ryan.

I think Allen is trash,” Ramsey told GQ. “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. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better? He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.”

Ramsey said Lamar Jackson, who eventually went 32nd overall to Baltimore, should have been chosen sooner and will be the Ravens’ starting quarterback.

“Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks,” Ramsey said.

Ramsey also wasn’t impressed when he matched up with Roethlisberger.

“Big Ben, I think he’s decent at best,” Ramsey said. “It’s not Big Ben, it’s [Antonio Brown]. Big Ben slings the ball a lot of the time. He just slings it, and his receivers go get it. He has a strong arm, but he ain’t all that. I played him twice last year, and he really disappointed me.”

And Ramsey doesn’t think highly of Ryan.

“I think Matt Ryan’s overrated,” Ramsey said. “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. You know what that tells me? That tells me [Kyle] Shanahan left, went to San Francisco, got [Jimmy] Garoppolo, made Garoppolo this big thing. And now Garoppolo is a big name—and now [Ryan] has this bad year? Alright, well, was it really you, or was it your coach? He was doing what was asked of him and it was making him look really, really good.”

So which quarterbacks don’t suck, in Ramsey’s view?

Aaron Rodgers does not. Tom Brady doesn’t,” Ramsey said. “I gotta think now, about all the teams. . . . I think Marcus Mariota is a great quarterback for their team. I think Tyrod Taylor is actually a better quarterback than he gets credit for, because he does not make mistakes. He’s honestly a Marcus Mariota type player, where he manages a game really well, always has them at least in position to be in the game late in the game. . . . Deshaun Watson, he’ll be the league MVP in a couple years. One hundred percent. There’s not even a debate about that. Him and Carson Wentz, for every year starting now until five to 10 years, it’s gonna be them two. They’re that good. . . . Dak Prescott, he’s good. He’s alright. He’s OK.”

Ramsey will face some of those quarterbacks again this year. Apparently he isn’t concerned about creating bulletin-board material.

  1. Ramsey apparently sees himself as the next Richard Sherman on and off the field

    Since both Flacco & Big Ben have Super Bowl rings (for those keeping score the count there is Flacco/Ben – 3/Ramsey – 0) my guess is they will consider the source as someone who wants to get his name published and move on

    FWIW the Steelers put up 42 points on the Jax defense last January

  2. This guy. The media is going to love to stick a mic in his face because he talks mad trash. On this, I don’t find too much to disagree with.

  3. Nice to see such proper grammar and phonic vocabulary from this guy. Good thing he was blessed athletically, and he better hope that he has a long career. Good lord.

  4. Aren’t you kind of staring to get that feeling that this kid’s going to get himself in trouble? That someday down the line we’re going to look back and think about what he could have been? What a talent he is, but want an arrogant ass he is too.

  5. Lol it’s kind of refreshing to hear players give their true opinion instead of talking up their competition. I enjoy this.

  6. Jags Giants week 1 is starting to look like it might get stupid with Ramsey lining up against Odell.

  7. I agree about Tyrod Taylor from what I’ve seen so far…he has a rare composure about him. If anybody can handle the Mayfield rookie year hype, he can.

  8. So many old dudes in here crying that someone is on your lawn. Can any of you explain to me how exactly your life is impacted in the slightest bit by this guys words?

    The only thoughts on the matter I have are that this dude is gonna look fantastic this year or look real foolish. I look forward to seeing which it is because either entertains me.

    Oh and uh, he’s completely correct in his analysis, especially about Tyrod Taylor. No idea why Buffalo hates him so much.

  9. Wow, a second-year guy schooling everyone on who’s a good QB. Shut your pie hole and play football!!!! And stand for our National Anthem with your hand on your heart, with the knowledge that you are living in the greatest country in the world, and making an enormous living playing a game!!

  10. It will be funny to watch Ramsey get burned this year over and over when Bortles returns to form, goes 3 and out on nearly every possession, and the defense is on the field the entire game. We all know the Jags will regress back to the 5-11 squad they truly are this season.

    like the Jags (Colt fan) but here’s another guy who likes to talk and see his name in print…hope he backs it up…
    ————

    He already has.

    Keep up.

  12. Well, you’ve gotta admit, he is entertaining. Does it make up for the total lack of class, who am I to say??

    This kid is really talented; I saw him play in college 5-6 times and was impressed enough to believe hed be a top 10(probably top 5 CB). The thing about his position is if he gets beat everyone will see it. When an Offensive Lineman misses a block or a Linebacker misses his assignment it’s not always noticed, but when you get beaten,1on1 on a deep game changing pass,everyone notices. QBs will be looking for an opportunity to make him look bad; how will he react when one (or a few) succeed? That will be interesting to see….

    Nope. It’s trash talk, Mr. Take My Ball and Go Home.

  14. AB absolutely schooled this clown last year, beating him up and down the field.

    He needs to check himself because when he faces top competition he is the one that looks irrelevant.

  15. I hope Josh Allen has a good career so we can relive this rant from Jalen Ramsey in several years.

    But I am pretty surprised that he complimented Mariota and Watson, being divisional rivals and all… Jaguars vs Titans games got pretty heated last year.

  16. “I don’t care what nobody say”
    _____________________________________

    That lends a lot of credibility to his “intelligent” critique. Look out, Einstein, another genius walks this earth.

  17. This clown BETTER hope he has a long career and stays healthy…and out of trouble. But I don’t see that happening!

  18. “I think Tyrod Taylor is actually a better quarterback than he gets credit for, because he does not make mistakes.”

    That’s cause he barely throws the ball. He only throws to guys who are wide open by a 5 yard radius.

  19. 75% true. you gotta love what leonard brought to the jaguars though ever since he showed up they developed identity and confidence, it may be a lil arrogant at times but at least its a united team now.

  20. “That’s a stupid pick to me”

    Ramsey is quickly killing his reputation.

    ——————————————

    No he’s confirming it.

  22. This is refreshing. You want honest opinions on what players think about who they’re competing against, and he gave people that. It’s extremely rare in this sport. And also, for those who are questioning his intelligence because he’s not speaking the same brand of English as you are insane. He made academic All-conference in college and comes from a very intelligent family.

  23. ok wait. So I understand this;

    All this time we’ve been calling Joe Flacco “Jump-ball-Joe” we had him confused for his division foe, Ben Rothlesburger? Got it.

    And Joe Flacco has really been the 2nd coming of Tim Couch all this time and it’s really John Harbaugh and their D that brought them to a SB win. Got it.

    Aside from that, for the rest of it, he’s basically saying what we all knew anyway

  24. He’s not totally off base with his evaluation of Josh Allen.

    Josh Allen isn’t a good QB. He’s a good QB Prospect. He can be developed into a good QB, but he’s not there yet. His ability to throw on the run with accuracy will get him far in the League. It’s a shame that his coaches to move the pocket for him, and design a running game to compliment a moving pocket.

  25. Wait, Josh Allen who just got drafted and never played a single regular season snap sucks? I think you should give QBs at least 2 NFL seasons before passing judgement. And how many SBs does Big Ben have?

    Ramsey will be washed out in a few years. He’s going to be Sherman/Revis. They’ll be in and out of their prime before they turn 30.

  26. .
    As a fan I find Ramsey amusing. I’d I were his agent I’d warn him that he is on a collision course with Tom Coughlin and things are probably going to end badly.

    It’s not even old dudes, it’s millennial beta males.

  28. I guess some people just love to hear themselves talk…. no matter how foolish or idiotic they may sound….. sad!!!

  29. I’m indifferent to trashing talking. Yes it’s annoying but if you find comedic relief in it, then it’s actually funny.

    But I find it better then the plain generic answers and over the top celebrating of other teammates like Jarvis Laundry has done while being on the Browns.

    Either way, at least it gets the people going hahahaha just look at the comments

  30. he lost all credibility when saying taylor was underrated. he is the worst starting qb in the league.

  31. Thing is, he is one of if not the best Cornerback in the league, I remember this guy named Deion Sanders, he sure talked a lot of crap and showboated a lot but he did alright for himself, cornerback is a position where that swag or confidence is needed. Maybe he’s just trying to bait these guys into throwing the ball his way, he may be smarter than we think.

    Hmmmm… a guy who directly faces QBs every snap, versus some Stump the Schwab body type couch potato who thinks “fantasy football” is a sport.

    I’ll take the opinion of the guy who actually plays the game and realizes that Tyrod does a very good job of taking care of the football and managing the game.

    He has plenty of credibility to me.

  33. I love it when players are honest and don’t give the politically correct canned answers. Makes me miss the days of Bernie Kosar doing pre season commentary for the Browns and talking about how players parents should be ashamed of them for being that terrible.

    This is rated G compared to how they talk about each other in the locker rooms. Why is it ok for guys on Fox Sports and ESPN to say stuff like this but if an active player gives his first hand opinion he’s automatically a big mouth”.

  34. Don’t know what Steeler fans are doing in here. Roethlisberger had what 7 turnovers in two games against them?

    By the way Steeler fans, you never had a lead in that playoff game. But your offense really came alive after they had fallen behind by 3 TDs.

    We had several guys like Ramsey when Tom was here. He loved it, as long as you came to work 5 minutes early and did your job on the field.

    Joke’s on you.

    Flacco has probably the best playoff performance ever. He has a ring.
    ——–

    BOTH of Eli’s playoff runs that culminated with Super Bowls were more impressive.

  38. This is what he said about cousins, to all the dumb packer fans saying he didn’t mention cousins. He did. Reading is hard.

    What about Kirk Cousins?
    I think he’s good. I think he’s a winner. He’s a hell of a competitor. Coming off the play action, he’s the best quarterback in the league. Play action passing, he’s a hell of a quarterback.

  39. It’s unfortunate he can’t join the Jaguars’ joint practices with the Vikings this week. He might have learned something from his fellow Florida State alum Xavier Rhodes about being a great cornerback without sounding like an idiot.

  40. Love it. Rule #1 is never give the other team (or player) a reason to beat you. Teams are already preparing for Jacksonville, who won’t be sneaking up on anyone this year. Ramsey running his mouth will only make things tougher for them.

  41. Jags have great linebacker and d-line groups in front of Ramsay. He’s not holding back at all now, letting his every thought just fly out of his mouth, but he better just be prepared for when he doesn’t have a defense chock full of studs around him. It’s a lot harder to talk crap about almost everyone then.

    The Jags could fall off a cliff. They aren’t really built to last. Unproven qb getting paid too much, to try and not lose games, so the defense can win them. More drama with this team in offseason already, such as thr Ramsay, Ngakoue, Fowler situation…Are they handling their one year or moderate success well? A lot of free agent signings on D: Campbell, Jackson, Dareus, Bouye, Gipson, Church. Free agent deals can be great in the first and second year…but they can cost you a lot of money on the back end of the deals for a dude who is over the hill. They lose Colvin and Posluszny, both starters.

    Ramsay running his mouth makes me kind of hope they do fall off the cliff.

  42. He’s entitled to his opinion, but until he actually wins something he can’t expect to be taken seriously. The fact is NE beat him like a drum in the 2nd half of the AFCC, that’s why he’s mad about how they used Blake. Trust me Jalen, the coaches knew just how much Blake could handle and the reason the game was even close was because they led with an injured (but effective) Fournette as long as they could.

  43. Ben throws for 470 yards and 5 TDs (to 1 INT), with those TDs being spread among 4 different players. If he’s that mediocre, so is your defense, so don’t run your mouth.

  44. Remember when sportsmanship was considered a good thing?
    I do, at least when I was a kid.
    I’m not a fan of players who trash talk , especially not like this.
    Your’re proud of your team, fine.
    You think you’re good, fine.
    Let your play speak for you.

    And Flacco is still better than Lamar Jackson. ha ha ha!

  46. FSU education or lack thereof.smh FSU should make these guys attend class once in a while. lol How embarrassing!

  47. Part of me admires the candor. But saying Josh Allen has a big arm, “supposedly,” implies that he might not. Allen may or may not succeed in the league, but I think his arm strength cannot be questioned.

    You wonder what he said to AJ Green right before Green body slammed him.

  48. Shanahan could not turn Brian Hoyer into a winner. Zero win in 2017 as 49er starting QB. A coach can only teach and call plays. It is up to the QB to do it on the field and to make good decisions.

  49. He is copying the Josh Norman playbook. Norman backs it up, but can Ramsey do the same?

    He does have a point about Big Ben, who has some of the biggest home/road splits (great at home, subpar on the road) along with Drew Brees.

  50. I love it when an NFL player goes on record to say things like this…. regardless of the pushback. And what’s more, he is right… Flacco does suck… the only one I think he got wrong is Big Ben. PIT sucks when he’s not playing, even if Brown is… other than that.. he is spot on.

  51. So many snowflakes offended by Ramsey’s words. These middle aged conservatives just want players to have no opinions, no emotion, and be robots for their entertainment.

  52. Jalen Ramsey is a garbage human being. For Ramsey to say these things while his team has one of the worst starting QB’s in the league is just priceless. Comments like this, calling out two of the best QB’s in the NFL in Matt Ryan and to a lesser degree Big Ben (Ben was an Elite top 5 QB but he’s now in the twilight of his career) and demeaning these QB’s in the way he has for pretty much no reason just shows how extremely immature Ramsey is (this is 8th-9th grade stuff) and will make him despised around the NFL by his fellow players. Their is a difference between being a trash talking loud mouth like a Richard Sherman (who backed it up) is and just being a garbage human being which Jalen Ramsey is. And Ramsey hasnt even proved much in the league yet, and last season AJ Green laid a beat down on him in front of 60k-70k for precisely crap like this and it seems he still hasnt learned his lesson, I see another beatdown coming Ramsey’s way in the very near future.

  53. All these poet laureates dissecting his “English”, but mastering the English language (as if), has worked out so well for them working as a shift manager at Forever 21…

  54. At first glance this appears to be a guy with a big mouth, but when you consider what he is saying his viewpoints do make sense. Ryan does have Julio, Ben does have AB, Allen did suck against any big time school. Take away the SB run and Joe Flacco is a very average QB at best.

    I enjoy hearing his thoughts and think there is more to this guy than someone like say Richard Sherman.

    When has Norman backed up anything? Guy gets a couple of picks playing deep thirds, then goes to another team and gets overpaid for it, and is barely mediocre, yet he “backs it up” LOL

    Ramsey is already far superior to anything Norman could have ever dreamed of being at CB.

  58. I don’t get why everyone gets all worked up. Isn’t this fun? Don’t we all wonder what players see out there besides what we see on TV? Don’t we want them to tell us what the really think instead of acting like they’re all BFs?

    Personally I wish football players talked more trash… take me back to the good ole WWF Ric Flair days… Whoooooooo!!!

  59. So Allen is going to be trash because Wyoming couldn’t beat a big school? He probably said something similar about Carson Wentz because he came from a small school. The bottom line is Ramsey just loves to hear himself talk and degrade everyone. That’s a small person who feels like he has to talk so much about others. Hopefully some of those teams will shut his mouth.

    Apparently every one hates honesty.

    How soft we’ve become.

    You can be honest without being condescending or insulting. His act also lacks self-awareness and cleverness. There’s no wink, no irony, no wit. He’s not entertaining like some other mouthy players, he’s just rude and dull. I don’t see why we should applaud that.

  62. That’s an awful lot of shade thrown in a short time. Is he negotiating a sponsorship deal that would pay him more based on social media following? He just seems to be trying real hard to bring controversy and that almost certainly brings likes and follows from people who like trash talk or simply want to watch the train wreck.

  63. My only strong disagreement is with his evaluation of Big Ben.

    I only kinda disagree on Flacco. It’s not that he sucks, but there’s a lot of flaws in his game and he’s overrated with respect to that one magical postseason run. Still, can’t take that Super Bowl away from him.

    ****************************************************

    I’m not saying that Steelers didn’t get off to a bad start — it was awful.

    That said, starting as bad as the Steelers did, Jags defense was so soft throughout the duration of the game that the Steelers still put up 42 and lose by only 3. I get that teams often let up on defense, but you either have to give the offense (including Ben) credit or it’s a completely inexcusable breakdown by the Jags defense. Regardless of which, I wouldn’t run my mouth if I was Ramsey given that outcome.

  65. Maybe Ramsey thinks that talking like this has some perceived benefit to him because he will be more talked about and more popular and maybe that extends his social media reach etc. Maybe that would increase his personal income outside the game.

    However, it can’t help his team. It can only hurt the team. So far hurting the team is all he has done this preseason.

    Two distractions now and counting.

    Flacco is a Super Bowl winner that has started in this league consistently for 10 years. He’s won 10 playoff games. That’s the 10th most playoff games all time. He’s been in the top half of QBs in the league for 10 years and had a lot of success.

    I love to make fun of Flacco because I hate the Ravens, but he’s been way better than most other QBs.

    If people truly believe Flacco sucks and think a rookie coming in will do better than Flacco in their career, most likely they will be sorely mistaken.

    Don’t you have to win to be a winner?

  69. I don’t care about a little trash talk. If you don’t mind putting a bullseye on yourself and feel like you can back it up with your play, it’s your journey, bro, not mine. It definitely doesn’t bother me on the field, that’s the best place to do it and have to be immediately accountable. I don’t even hate it when some guy says something to the cameras at his locker, in a press conference, or even going the Richard Sherman route and screaming into Erin Andrews’ microphone. Not how I’d go about business, but it’s not me, I’m just watching and I like being entertained.

    HOWEVER…trash talk looks terrible in print when your quote is followed by “, Ramsey told GQ.”

    —————–

    Who cares about what his point is, it’s disrespectful to great players that have been doing this for a long time. Mouthy guys come and go every year. They eventually end up being bitter ex-players at some point.

  71. Honestly, this is brilliant. Now, you’re going to see more quarterbacks test him just to see if they can make him look foolish. If that ends up happening, he’s going to lead the league in interceptions. You have to be brash when you’re on the island. This guy is the best at what he does.

  72. A variation of these comments gets said everyday on PFT, but let me guess the tenor of the comments here. Ramsey needs to be quiet for some alien reason that no one can particularly articulate, lol. He can say this though because your QB won’t be throwing at him, and he knows it. Best CB in football. No matter what you say or how much you don’t like him, that’s a fact.

  73. People hate it when players say nothing and blast them when they have something to say. He’s giving his honest evaluation here and I respect great players who are honest.

    Agree with him on Brady, Rodgers, Wentz, and Watson but do have problems with Mariota and Taylor. Nice of him not to say Bortles is trash.

  74. Ravens fan. Flacco wasn’t too successful the last two years, the length of Ramsey’s professional experience. Don’t mind the trash talk. Would love to see Flacco v Ramsey this year. That would have to be in January….

  75. I laugh at the fact that commenters on PFT routinely trash any and all QBs all the time, but once an exceptional player does it he is suddenly chastised in the harshest manner possible.

    Someone asked when Josh Norman has backed it up. How about in 2015, when he was emailing media guys predicting his success, and subsequently backed up his unexpected trash talk.

    “Opposing quarterbacks had a passer rating of 54.0 when throwing at Norman, the lowest rating allowed by all NFL corners.”

    His team went to the Super Bowl that year.

    I only kinda disagree on Flacco. It’s not that he sucks, but there’s a lot of flaws in his game and he’s overrated with respect to that one magical postseason run. Still, can’t take that Super Bowl away from him.

    ———-

    Flacco is a Super Bowl winner that has started in this league consistently for 10 years. He’s won 10 playoff games. That’s the 10th most playoff games all time. He’s been in the top half of QBs in the league for 10 years and had a lot of success.

    I love to make fun of Flacco because I hate the Ravens, but he’s been way better than most other QBs.

    If people truly believe Flacco sucks and think a rookie coming in will do better than Flacco in their career, most likely they will be sorely mistaken.

    ———-

    Flacco has always had a knack for playing well in the postseason. To be fair, Jalen doesn’t have much postseason experience so his opinion may be skewed….

  77. i may not agree with some of his assessments (others he is spot on) but im glad someone said something like this in this insipid era of “pc coloring books & feelings” absolute boredom, personality-less robots

    Oh and uh, he’s completely correct in his analysis, especially about Tyrod Taylor. No idea why Buffalo hates him so much.

    =================

    Buffalo treated Taylor terribly and were dumb to let him go. Though I have a feeling that Taylor will end up much better off without them.

    Buffalo has good talent at QB now, but I don’t trust them to make the most of it.

  79. After he made a Super Bowl promise and lost a tough AFC CH game to the Patriots, there were 2 Jags who did not mingle with the Patriots players and shake hands…one of them was Jalen Ramsey…walked off the field with head down right in front of my seat. Stay classy, JR…

  80. Matt Ryan was flat last year. Will be interesting to see if he has another flat season. Ryan doesn’t make great plays…he often makes good plays but there are many guys who do that.

    Big Ben makes plays that others can’t duplicate….he’s special and can hang in the pocket and extend plays with his strength.

    The other guys I honestly haven’t seen enough of yet.

  81. People complain about the robotic, cliche answers. Then they complain when someone actually gives an honest opinion

  82. Jalen is just channelling his inner Ric Flair. You may not like it, but you had better learn to love it! Cuz it’s the best.. thing.. going.. Today! Wooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

  83. Hey Ramsey what is your assessment of Bortles? People with glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

  84. So what does he think about that QB he faces in practice every day? What’s his name? Bortles?

  85. ZenMasterbator:

    “I enjoy hearing his thoughts and think there is more to this guy than someone like say Richard Sherman.”

    Well, we’ll never know because you’ve managed to fit all of it in your mouth…

  86. I Love Jalen Ramsey and even more that he is not afraid to be himself! People need to get over themselves and their cowardice, politically correctness.. This guy is playing a sport for a living! It’s entertainment! Nobody’s going to get hurt – chill-out! Muhammad Ali was the biggest trash talker, Deion, Sherman, etc. They all did pretty well for themselves!

    Some guys are just wired that way. It gives them an edge that they need to go out and compete at the highest level.

  87. “Gentlemen’s Quarterly”. There a piece of Irony for you! I think they need to upgrade their standards a little.

  88. I love how he glosses over certain things. I guess he feels jimmy is overrated and it’s all Kyle,well I love Kyle don’t get me wrong but he was 1-9 until he got jimmy. Then oh ya jimmy put 44 points on me Ramsey and yes his team was playing for the 1 seed so you can’t use that as an excuse.

  89. If you’ve seen the entire qb list that he graded it’s no surprise that all the black qbs are good or underrated even says Watson will be mvp but the white qbs are either overrated or suck. Some just don’t suck though.

  90. He lost all credibility when he said Taylor is a better QB than he’s given credit for. True, he doesn’t make many mistakes, but that’s because he never does anything to win a game either. The only reason that the Bills won as much as they did when he was in Buffalo was the defense. Because it sure wasn’t his offense. Last in the league, or close, in virtually every passing category. And don’t blame the receivers. The QB almost always makes the receiver. Not the other was around.

  91. So all the white QB’s suck and the black ones are underrated or will be MVP’s in a few years. Got it Jalen.

  92. …..agree with AJ Green…..

    Ramsey is a loudmouth, and the football gods tend to have their way with classless goons like him…….

    The football gods are watching closely Jalen……..

    ……..look out for some runs Ramseys’ side next week with that big ole 240lb fullback leading and looking for someone to pancake ……..

    #RamseyWillGetHis………

  93. Sounds like Ramsey has a lot of time on his hands after his suspension for being a jerk. Guess he’s really taking it to heart. I’m an FSU fan and enjoyed watching him dominate on the field but he’s never been accused of being the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  94. I don’t get all the comments implying that his comment is racist. Did I miss something- Are Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Carson Wentz and Marcus Mariota black?

  95. I read the first 30ish comments and stopped.

    What happened to honesty in this world. Those are his thoughts, and I appreciate a little trash talk. Want to shut him up? Make him. Perform like a great QB, and torch him. If you cant do that, then hes going to keep talking.

    Hes like Conor McGregor. Talks and talks and talks, but he is mostly walking the walk too. He is a great young player. Great CBs need a little ego. Don’t like him as a person, but as a player, I wish he played for my team. No idea what he is like in the locker room, or how his peers feel about him, but he performs.

  96. I’d love to know Ramsey’s take on WR’s – he should start with AJ Green. Would love to know what he thinks of AJ throwing him around like a rag doll and punking him on the field.

    Ramsey has the benefit of playing CB on a D that has a great front 7 – he’s good, but take away so of that pass rush and let’s see how good he is.

  97. Regarding Ben – “I played him twice last year, and he really disappointed me.” In that second game he threw for 5 TDs on Ramsey’s own vaunted defense – FIVE. It’s true, the Steelers lost, because their own D sucked. But c’mon man.
