Jim Schwartz: Eagles facing “most dangerous player” in the NFL, Lamar Jackson

Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz expects his players to have their hands full on Sunday when the Ravens come to town.

Schwartz said today that there may be no player in the NFL who is harder for a defense to stop than Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

“Lamar Jackson is probably the most dangerous player in the league,” Schwartz said, via Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

Jackson wasn’t particularly dangerous on Sunday against the Bengals, gaining a career-low three rushing yards on two carries, while throwing for just 180 yards. But the Ravens jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, so Jackson didn’t have to do much.

Against the Eagles, Schwartz is hoping to threaten Jackson more than the Bengals did — but he’s also aware of how dangerous Jackson is when threatened.

  1. “Most Dangerous Player”? Russell Wilson or Patrick Mahomes are the most dangerous players…and after that it’s not even close

  2. Lamar Jackson? No problem…Schwartz is the key to man on mn schemes to the out Offensive weapons…Nate Gerry isolated on Claypool man to man was a stroke of genius… He will probably designate the 9th string O lineman Opeta to come out on obvious passing downs to spy Jackson in order to keep D line fresh.

  3. This idiot. . . .he’ll probably have nate gerry spying him so philly can get gashed once again and continue to play maybe the worst linebacker in the league. Give the rookies a shot. They cant do much worse.

  4. Last year maybe but it looks like competent teams have figured him out and can bottle their offense effectively.

  5. Huh are you guys watching 2019 tape? I would be more worried about that Defense than Lamar. he’s been a shell of himself this season

  6. I think Schwartz historically plays mobile qbs pretty well. It’s the qbs that are good downfield passers that Jim just can’t stop or even slow down.

  7. Aaron Donald is the most dangerous because he can wreck your franchise in a blink of an eye. That is far worse than getting a TD put on in you fast.

  8. Even the Bengal’s horrid Defense held Jackson to 3 yds rushing and 50% completion %. Without the run Jackson is a sub par QB.

  9. Philly fans want Schwartz GONE!!! He should be scared of what Lamar will do to the Eagles defense.

  10. He was Dangerous enough to score 20 points against a team that only scored 3. Ingram is good but wearing down. Gus should be the thunder and dobbins should be the lighting in the backfield rotations.

  11. Huh. You would think the most dangerous player in the NFL could throw for over 100 yards in every game.

  12. We have to play him like we played Vick. Box him in and keep him in the pocket, make him play QB.

  13. If Lamar Jackson plays well in this game, it’s only because the Eagles are so bad. It was easy for Lamar to look good last season, considering his tight ends were wide open in the middle of the field on countless plays, and the refs never called holding on any of the impact plays.

  14. So…. Schwartz going to put Nate Gerry as a spy on Lamar and Lamar will run right past him for 2+ scores. Almost every team has had a single player with at least 2 TDs against the Eagles this year. Look for the TEs and Lamar to have a big game because the Eagles don’t care about LB play and send Gerry, who should not even be in the league, out as a starting LB.

  15. He is the reigning MVP, so that tells you right there that he is dangerous. He is the #1 dual threat in the league, so he should be feared. You guys crap on Lamar and praise others…Brady stinks up the joint regularly and Brees can barely throw a ball 10 yards.

    Jalen Hurts time. Carson Wince will not survive another NFC defense.
    ——-
    Heads up, Ravens are an AFC team, so not sure what the hell you are talking about. Typical ignorant Pats fan spewing hate and hoping for injury.

  17. The defense needs to play a consistently good game…some drives they just look like they can’t stop anyone and others they look amazing…and Jim Schwartz needs to be more quickly to adapt in games…he has shown he can but it always seems like he waits too long…they look good when the blitz once in a whille keep it up…and that soft zone to close games doesn’t work I don’t know why teams always do that…I think we have a good shot of winning this one if Carson keeps getting better as he has week to week and D shows up, go birds!

  18. Considering his track record against “not very dangerous at all” QBs, I’d be a bit worried.

  19. If this clown is the most dangerous player in the NFL, no wonder why the Eagles are awful. Jackson isn’t sure n the top 50 most dangerous players but Aaron Donald is

    Aaron Donald is not a dirty player, if you are implying that

  21. The most dangerous player to the Eagles is Nathan Gerry. Maybe Schwartz should gameplan the defense on how to stop Gerry from awarding the opposing team TDs. My suggestion is to bench him for a rookie. They couldn’t do worse and at least they have an excuse for not remembering who they are supposed to cover.

  22. Some posters on here just continue to show their inability to understand sports in general. Players have good games and players have bad games. But I guess we live in a ‘knee jerk” society. Please stop embarrassing yourselves.

  23. Usually, athletes in Philly never have to pay for a meal. Nate Gerry, on the other hand, has to pay double IF they even let him in the building.

  24. Just the facts, please– for teams that have played 5 games:
    Ravens DEAD LAST in total offense. #25 of 25 teams.
    Only ahead of the Jets in passing, so 2nd WORST in the entire league for passing. Jets throw for 176 yards per game but Lamar is delivering an amazing 179 yards per game.
    #23 QB in terms of yards/ completion at 7 yds.
    He does add 48 running yards per game, so he accounts for 227 yards per game throwing and running. Watch out!
    News flash: it ain’t 2019. Lamar is regressing quickly and is one of the worst QBs in the league. Defenses have adjusted. He can’t make any throws longer than 6-8 yards and none outside the hashes. He throws 50% of his total passes to Andrews and Brown. He makes terrible decisions on reads and stays in the pocket too long.
    It’s a long fall from grace and you Ravens fans deserve it for all the nonsense you spewed last year and placing him on Mt Rushmore with Brady. I dunno, maybe it would be nice if he actually won a playoff game first?

  25. Lamar won’t need to run, check out the Eagle’s stats against TEs. Greg Roman is the only reason this game could be close. He hasn’t settled into the season yet.

    Let me know when your running back you Ravens fans call a quarterback throws five touchdown passes in a single game at the age of 43, considering Lamar will likely be out of the league or benched as a backup in less than six years anyways.

  27. If/when Baltimore figures out how to isolate Nate Gerry, it won’t matter what anyone else on D does. That guy is an absolute disaster…his racist tweets from high school resurfacing probably didn’t help much either …

  28. Heads up, Ravens are an AFC team, so not sure what the hell you are talking about. Typical ignorant Pats fan spewing hate and hoping for injury.

    “Heads up” you are replying to a Jets fan!!
    Pat fans are not ignorant or hateful!!!

  29. Ravens fan here. The Ravens passing offense is ranked 31st (last I checked), so if I were the Eagles, I’d be blitzing all the time. Lamar has to prove that he can handle the blitz, make the quick throws and the O-Line needs to protect. If the Ravens can do that, then it will be a long day for the Eagles. Our defense is literally on fire right now.
