Jalen Ramsey says you can’t blame him for last night

There were plenty of reasons the Jaguars got rolled last night, most of them having to do with Titans running back Derrick Henry.

As such, Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey said it wasn’t his fault.

Via Mike Organ of the Tennessean, Ramsey didn’t blame anyone in particular for Henry’s 238 rushing yards or the 426 total yards the Titans piled up, but he made it clear it wasn’t on him.

“I mean, I had limited opportunities; they ran the ball,” Ramsey said. “They ran the ball down our throat 100 percent of the game. Personally, I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to make a game-changing play. I do what I can do and that’s all I can do, to be honest.”

Despite their 4-9 record and no shot at the playoffs, Ramsey said he’d continue to play hard this year. Asked if that extended to the rest of the locker room, he replied: “Ummm, ask everybody else.”

“You’ve got to play and glorify God,” he said. “He’s given us some of the gifts and stuff that we honestly don’t deserve. That’s what I try to do; please God and let his light shine through me.”

If the light shines through the Jaguars the way Henry ran through them, the message will surely be spread.

  1. “That’s what I try to do; please God and let his light shine through me.”

    God also says be humble. Can’t have one without the other.

    Way to be a TEAM player. I’m sure that’ll go over well at practice. No wonder you’re 4-9.

  2. The defensive assignments were atrocious – why was Telvin Smith defending inside leaving Bouye alone with Henry on the outside? Todd Wash is one of the worst D-Coordinators in the league and he’s wasting one of the greatest defenses the league has ever seen – complete misuse of extraordinary talent.

    Marrone, Wash and caldwell all need to go – TODAY

    The Jaguars will be a team to watch in the offseason. They will have to cut some players and/or trade some players to get under the cap. Ramsey would be excellent trade bait for someone like John Gruden or Jerry Jones.

  4. I really wanted the Ravens to draft him. Now I’m grateful for unanswered prayers! He needs to learn about accountability.

  5. He absolutely DID NOT say you can’t blame him for last night…but

    Can you blame him for last night, though? They literally focused the whole game plan away from playing against him. He allowed one catch for 8 yards or something ridiculous. Hate his mouth all you want. This dude is ballin’ out.

    I don’t think he’ll finish his rookie contract with the Jaguars. Big mouth will eventually catch up to him.

    To date the Jags have done absolutely nothing to muzzle this guy, so i see no reason why they will suddenly decide now that humility is important to them.

  7. Derrick Henry literally ran right by Jalen Ramsey on his 4th touchdown of the night. What a clown. Guess we won’t see any GQ Q & A’s this offseason from him huh?

    Maybe the current version of their front office/coaching staff hasn’t done anything to muzzle him….but if/when that personnel changes, Ramsey just might be in for a big surprise.

  9. When you mix high athleticism with no heart and low class you get Jalen Ramsey. Supremely talented when everything is going well. Disappears in the face of adversity. Maybe he’ll grow up and mature…but unlikely as he now has some money.

  10. “I mean, I can’t be expected to cover receivers AND tackle Rb’s. I just run around out there and pretend I’m giving effort but you can’t honestly expect me to try to tackle anyone.”

    Jon Gruden trade FOR talent? You must be joking. He only trades AWAY talent.

  12. Jalen is finding out that flapping his gums makes for a poor tackling technique. Well, we are finding that out. He’s busy looking at himself in the mirror and thanking the man upstairs for how glorious Jalen is.

  13. And if he were a quarterback, he’d still feel it was his duty to let everyone know that “I do what I can do and that’s all I can do, to be honest. You people need to understand that I lose a lot of opportunities to make game-changing plays when other guys are the ones dropping my passes and running the wrong routes. There’s nothing I can do about that and you need to remember that it’s the mistakes other players are making that end up making my bottom line look worse.”

  14. To his credit, Ramsey DID try to “do what he can do” in last night’s game…right down to the most pathetic flop I have ever seen. Wait, that isn’t to his credit at all. Never mind…

  15. “You’ve got to play and glorify God,” he said. “He’s given us some of the gifts and stuff that we honestly don’t deserve. That’s what I try to do; please God and let his light shine through me.”

    These guys slay me with statements like this one. It’s one thing to say it Ramsey, it’s another thing to live it. Grace is given to the humble. I’m not sure Jalen knows the meaning of the word.

  16. What a joke this guy is, when it’s going good he’s a ham, when it goes bad he doesn’t know anything.

  17. So much for accountability Jalen Ramsey, the cornerback is 1 of 11 people on the field and if one is a tough enough can impact the run defense as well, cornerbacks with Ramseys mentality are the reason a defense gets run over. There was this cornerback named Antoine Winfield who spent the beginning of his career with the Buffalo Bills and the majority of his career with the Vikings, this guy was 5’9″ 180lbs and was known to lay a pop on anybody, including 230lb running backs like the one that ran over the Jaguars defense last night. I’m pretty sure it was the runners who shuddered in fear when Winfield was coming.

  18. Where are all the people who gave Jerry crap for passing on this guy? Also did anyone notice if the QB had any arm strength the WR ran right pass Ramsey. Just didn’t catch the back it was under thrown.

  19. mariota still completed 75% of his passes in this game. to be sure derrick henry was the wrecking ball for the titans but mariota kept the chains moving at critical times in that game. then you have the 4th touchdown where jalen ramsey has henry run right past him. i am sorry but an elite cornerback should not be outrun by a 250 pound back. no excuses. unless ramsey was too yellow to try and tackle henry.
