Jalen Ramsey on Stephon Gilmore comments: It’s lame, it’s corny

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been no stranger to verbal volleying during his NFL career, but it has usually come between him and offensive players.

This week’s episode involved another defensive player, however. Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore said that Ramsey’s habit of talking a lot wasn’t his style because “a lot of guys that talk are mostly zone guys” because they have more energy left over than those who play man.

Ramsey expressed surprise to be taking a shot from another defensive player when he was asked about Gilmore’s thoughts on Thursday.

“I never understood why someone on the same side of the ball would hate another guy,” Ramsey said, via Jacksonville.com. “I’m going to continue to do what the team asks for me to do, either man or zone. Maybe he should try it also — I’m All-Pro. Maybe I’m a threat or something. It’s lame, it’s corny. But that’s him, though. I play a good mix of both. I think everybody knows that.”

Gilmore’s comments about Ramsey’s energy level came a few days after Tony Romo of CBS said he thought Ramsey looked tired as last Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs unfolded. Ramsey admitted on Thursday that he was worn out by the end of a matchup with Tyreek Hill that he said “felt like a track meet.”

Whether in zone or man, the Cowboys receiving corps isn’t likely to make the same impact on Ramsey this Sunday.

  1. “I never understood why someone on the same side of the ball would hate another guy,” Ramsey said.

    The answer is in the mirror, Jalen.

  2. Walk the talk and you don’t have to talk……

    This guy’s own words are his own worse enemy…

    Play ball… be quiet…let your actions do the talking and things will take care of themselves

  3. Gilmore has always been professional and has some class. I must be hard for those types of players sometimes to sit back and have to listen to some players that are not professional and have no class. Especially when the media makes them the darlings of the league.

  4. So the guy runs his mouth all offseason and the moment someone comes after him he says he can’t understand why someone would say something about him?! Really? Typical punk that can dish it out but can’t take it. That’s how you know someone is mentally weak

  5. Ramsey is the best corner in the league on the best defense in the league … of course their will be haters. It’s too bad then offense got decimated with injuries because now the Jags are struggling to put up points. Go Jags !!!

    Almost as lame and corny as you saying you could play hockey after 6 months.

    ——————-

    Not just hockey – NHL hockey, mind you. Maybe he thinks he can cover Connor McDavid?

  7. Nobody cares if he’s All-Pro, that’s just another vote. Loud and desperate for attention losers always get votes. He’s not even a top three CB in the league, stop overrating him because he gets reported on more than others and plays on a good defense.

  8. Huh, that’s exactly what I think of Ramsey, he’s a lame and corny trash talker only he’s also a crybaby.

    Gilmore did nothing you haven’t done since you could speak Jalen. Except play in a Superbowl. Which I bet you will never do.
    ——————————————————————————-

    That’s actually not correct, Gilmore has never been selected as All-Pro, which is a much higher distinction than pro-bowl.
    Congrats to gilmore for being on a superbowl team, not sure what that means though.

    The problem with people like this is they believe “class” means being nothing but a robot with any authenticity, emotion or displays of any type, other than faux “humility” and the rest of the nonsense that they assign as “class.”

  11. Almost everything that comes out of Ramseys mouth is lame, so he’s one to talk. ALso, how does Ramsey take a comment made about him and perceive it as Gilmore hates him?

    “I’m going to continue to do what the team asks for me to do, either man or zone. Maybe he should try it also.

    I’m sure Gilmore DOES do what the team asks him to do, or he wouldn’t be there.

    “I’m All-Pro”

    Yeah, we know. You remind everyone all the time. I mean really, who else SAYS that???

    Gilmore knows what he’s talking about. The Jags use Ramsey in zone so much because they know he isn’t capable of going man coverage for the majority of the game, whereas Gilmore is at his best in man to man and is in that coverage most of the game.

    Gilmore isn’t as good as Ramsey, but he also isn’t far behind him either

  12. Lame and corny must mean correct and accurate. Notice in his response he didn’t in any way dispute that he is a zone corner. He’s a very good player, and if you didn’t already know, he was All Pro. He has made sure to let us all know for 2 weeks in a row. Since he said “I’m going to continue doing what the team asks me to do”. In other words, Gilmore is spot on, because the team is using him that way. Lol. Lame and corny is telling everyone you are all pro over and over
