Greg Roman: Lamar Jackson’s interceptions are “very, very correctable”

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had one of the worst starts of his career in last Sunday’s win over Cleveland, tossing four interceptions en route to a 46.5 passer rating.

Jackson said called it a “horrible game” on Wednesday, adding that he looked like a rookie in the start with bad reads and bad passes.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman told reporters on Thursday that Jackson was “definitely ticked off” after the performance.

“We never want to turn the ball over like that,” Roman said, via Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun.

Jackson’s last two starts have not gone well. In Week 10 against Miami, Jackson was blitzed heavily and finished 26-of-43 for 239 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He was sacked four times and gained only 39 yards on nine carries. Jackson was 20-of-32 for 165 yards in Sunday’s win over Cleveland, also rushing for 68 yards on 17 carries.

But Roman feels like Jackson is on the right track to improve, particularly when it comes to the interceptions.

“Each one’s a little bit different,” Roman said. “Like, one of them the other day was not nearly his fault. Somebody else did something to cause it. But they’re all a little bit different, but very, very correctable.”

Playing the Steelers this week will likely present several challenges for Jackson. He’s 2-2 as a starter against them in his career, completing 58 percent of his passes for 381 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions. He’s also been sacked nine times and fumbled five times, losing two of them.

  1. Lamar Jackson remains the best QB of his draft class and he has an MVP trophy to prove it.

  2. Lol no they aren’t just like Kaep’s weren’t when you were in SF Greg. This guy is great at making running backs resemble quarterbacks but eventually the charade gets exposed. They were just lucky that they faced an even more garbage QB last week.

  3. No they aren’t. Under pressure and unable to be the running that he is, he will continue to donate the ball. Believe me, when teams now see this guy is a running back who is inconsistent under pressure, he will get a pressure cooker set for Christmas.

  4. Lamar Jackson is too inconsistent. He’ll probably never change that, and the Ravens will perpetually be one and done in the post-season.

  5. Lamar will shake last week off like he does defenders. Steelers are unfortunate to be the next team up.

  6. Ravens are 8-3 this season and currently top seed in the AFC. They have winning records and been to the playoffs every year with LJ. I find it really funny when the best troll-like comment is something like being “one and done in the playoffs” or “never win in the playoffs”. Even the trolls know the Ravens are perennial contenders.

    Very well said. These people act like being “one and done” is a terrible thing. Ask Lions fans, Jets fans, Jaguars’ fans if they’d like to be “one and done” year after year.

  8. So Taysom Hill plays a terrible game with 264 yards passing, 2 TDs, and 4 picks, and deservedly so gets crushed by the media for his poor performance. Just read the articles. Lamar plays even worse, with only 165 yards passing, 1 TD against 4 picks, and the media (both on-air commentary and post-game) keep telling us how special he is, how incredible that TD pass to Andrews was, and how he’s redefined the position. Why is this? Why is Lamar’s treatment different?
