The Ravens’ passing game has not been effective this season, ranking 25th in net yards per attempt and 31st in yards per game. But quarterback Lamar Jackson isn’t worried.

Jackson said today that he thinks there’s an adjustment period early in the season, and that he’ll be able to pass the ball effectively when he needs to.

“We’re still working on it with young guys who just came in. We’re just finding ourselves right now. We’re good, I feel like we’re going to be good,” Jackson said. “It’s going to come to us. We’re going to do better.”

Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged that there have been ups and downs with the Ravens’ passing game.

“It will play out differently from week to week but I also think it’s something we need to continue to look at,” Harbaugh said.

Jackson has been fine this season, but he is not playing at the MVP level of a year ago. Getting Jackson back to MVP form would got a long way toward getting the Ravens to the Super Bowl.

  1. eh the requires you having more to throw to other than hollywood and andrews. Ravens have had the same problem for the last 5+ years, no WRs no Pass Rush.

  2. It’s just silly to expect a running back to maintain a high level passing game, despite last year’s fluke. I don’t expect to see it improve at all.

  3. If you get an early lead on this Ravens team, you’ve won. Lamar scares nobody once the read-option game plan is abandoned. He’s not a complete quarterback yet, if he’ll ever get there at all.

  4. He holds a very high standard for himself. When the mistakes are his mistakes it will bother him and he will work to improve. When the mistakes are someone else’s he will blame himself and boost the confidence of the other player. How do I know? It is what he says and how he acts. Remember this guy is in his third year and is still younger than Joe Burrow.

  5. He’s not a great passer as of now and he has very little receiving options. They were bound to regress this year and I think it’s going to come against the stronger teams they play.

  6. OK then. 😂 You’re going to magically learn how to read a defence and throw a ball? Yeah right. 😂

  7. Go ahead and write off last year’s MVP and current QB of 3rd ranked team in the NFL’s Power Rankings for week 6.
    This year he started the season looking pretty strong. But starting with the KC game, he has not looked good. We know about a knee injury, not serious enough to miss a game, but enough to miss practice. There was an illness, missed practice. And the fact he learned of the death of someone just before the Bengals game. Definitely not helpful.
    I’ve been saying since last year, that we just need to see Lamar come out of the gate showing that his passes are accurate. If that is there, defenses have to respect the rest of his game and no one can beat us at that point. It’s not consistent enough at this point. But knowing Lamar’s personality and work ethic. I know he is striving to make that right.
