Jalen Ramsey prepares for “the GOAT,” but all games are the same to him

NFL: SEP 19 Rams at Colts

On one hand, Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey knows he’s facing the greatest quarterback of all time on Sunday. On the other hand, he’s taking the game no more seriously than any other.

Asked by reporters on Friday whether he’s “a little more amped up” in going against Brady, Ramsey said, “I take every game serious to be honest with you. There’s not one game that’s more important than the other for me, personally. That’s just how I play. Like I love every bit of every game. So I take it all just as serious as any other game. But, it’s definitely cool though. It’s cool to be playing against somebody who you believe is the greatest ever do it.”

It’s also cool that Ramsey’s team’s are 2-0 in the regular season against Brady. Ramsey was quick to rectify that stat when someone mentioned he’s undefeated against Brady.

“That’s false actually, because he for sure beat me in the AFC Championship game before, which was the most important one,” Ramsey said. “The two regular-season games, I’m not going to say they didn’t matter because I feel like every game matters personally, to me it does. I think this is my fourth time playing Tom. Like I said, he is Tom Brady. He is the greatest to play the game, so there is just a lot of respect there. He does a good job of leading his team, having his team ready to play. That’s one thing that I respect even more is just his team’s always ready. No matter who it is.”

Ramsey sees absolutely no difference in Brady this season.

“He’s doing a great job,” Ramsey said. “Just leading his team. That’s probably the most important thing is leading this team and doing the things that he needs to do, being an elite quarterback in the NFL. Doing good, getting the ball out quick. Those guys are playing well. Tom Brady, I don’t know what else to say. Tom Brady. You know what I mean?”

I definitely know what you mean, Jalen. Brady is the best ever, at any position. Some are already saying he’s the best player in any sport, ever. That may be premature. Soon, it may not be.

Standing in the way of No. 8 for Brady will be the Rams, both now and potentially in the postseason. While the postseason remain months away, Sunday’s game is as significant as any early-season game could be.

  1. On Mondee the line opened with Bucs +1.5…on Tuesdee it switched to Bucs -1.5…because sharps like me got in early on the Bucs…

    Never ever pass up on the opportunity to bet on Brady plus 2 scores (+11.5)…I honestly don’t know who will win this game…can I see Brady beating the Rams by 2 scores…? Sure…can I see the Rams beating Brady by more than 2 scores…? #Nope

    Only suckers bet the spreads…you might as well flip a coin betting that way!!! Or buy a scratcher…

  2. You can get away with an occasional mistake against most QB’s, but Brady will find the mistake every time, and make you pay. It reminds me of pitching against Barry Bonds in his prime. You could make a mistake against most other hitters, but Bonds would catch every mistake, and make you pay. When Brady walks up to the line of scrimmage, he knows what the defenders are going to do once the ball is snapped, but they have no idea what he’s going to do. It’s why he doesn’t retire. It’s just so easy. Ramsey is probably the best DB in the game. It will be a good matchup.

  3. You know, TB12 is undeniably great but the overuse of the word GOAT is diminishing it’s intended value. 25 years of accumulated stats will build a good resume….SB titles definitely help too. You know what doesn’t get mentioned? TB12 was 19th in completion percentage and 9th in QBR last year. But hey he wins the big games.

  4. “I definitely know what you mean, Jalen. Brady is the best ever, at any position. Some are already saying he’s the best player in any sport, ever. That may be premature. Soon, it may not be.”

    Sorry but if in your head you think its premature to say it now then you will never be able to say it about Brady.

  5. TB12 was 19th in completion percentage and 9th in QBR last year.

    Tom Brady was 43 years old last season, No quarterback in his 40s in NFL history had the overall season, i.e., playing every game and leading his team to a Super Bowl championship that Brady had last year. Additionally, Brady’s individual statistics at the quarterback position were totally unprecedented in NFL history at age 43.

  6. TB12 is definitely the greatest winner in NFL history. Undisputed. But winning SB’s doesn’t make you the greatest at your position – Is Charles Haley the best pass rusher because he wears (5) rings? I think there are a few – including Reggie White, Lawrence Taylor and others – who could lay claim to the title.

  7. BRADY SIMPLY WINS !!!! ENOUGH SAID IM FROM BOSTON AND THERE IS NO OTHER EVER I WOULD WANT TO BE MY QUARTERBACK. WORK ETHIC AND DEDICATION SURPASSED BY NONE.

  8. “25 years of accumulated stats will build a good resume”

    ——

    Sure. I was gonna do that too, but Brady beat me to it.

    Everyone should play in the NFL that long and go to the SB 10 times, you know, if they so choose. It looks like fun.

    In the simplest terms, although the overall score, or point spread is irrelevant on a moneyline bet, the amount one can win increases or decreases based on the point spread. You’re not getting even odds betting on a two score favorite. More likely you win fifty cents or less per dollar bet on a two score favorite. You’re always betting against a spread in reality with a bookmaker.

  10. Jalen sure has matured from that playoff game where a few days before the game, he guaranteed his team would beat Brady then on game day as Brady was doing in LFG jog at th start, he gave Brady some lip. Bad moves. Brady came despite a gazillion stitches in his throwing hand to beat Jalen & company.

  11. Regardless of who wins tomorrow (Go Rams!) – I think most people expect a playoff rematch. That game will mean a lot more than this one.
