Its always been the receivers fault, of course!
I actually blame the OC who didn’t run enough pass plays during the season. Having better perceived WRs will lead to more passing plays and thus better WR play.

I blame Lamar he still wants to run first and pass second which just doesn't work in the playoffs.

His a great fantasy QB just not a great QB.
Yes and no.
The game plan was pretty diabolical against the Bills in playoffs last year. That’s on the front office and the OC not Lamar.

Lamar Jackson is also now the only quarterback in NFL history to total 400 yards passing, 4 touchdown passes, zero interceptions and 50 yards rushing in a single game.

Im fairly new to watching Nfl and think Lamar is great to watch,why so much negativity and hatred for him on here?
I love Lamar. A11 likes to tease me about my belief in him and I tease him about his negativity. It’s all good.

Its representative of what happens in the wider NFL viewing public. He gets held to a higher standard than many other QBs in conversations on US based forums, podcasts, social media, NFL broadcasts etc too

As for why, imo its some combination of people
- maintaining somewhat outdated ideals of what a QB should be (i.e, tall pocket passers with cannon arms more in the mold of a Tom Brady),
- not wanting to accept that their pre-draft evaluation of him was wrong
- not paying attention/understanding what mobile QBs do to defenses
and in some cases some element of racism too

Just perform like you do during the season in playoff games, that's all it comes down to for me. Lamar as of right now is a gagger and its why I enjoy ripping on him.
