How Jackson silenced his critics in the 2021-22 season

Lamar Jackson is one of the best stars in the NFL right now and his success with the Baltimore Ravens can prove that point. His critics were gone so far which shows how much he’s improved in the 2021-22 season as he continues to lead his team to more big wins.

In the past few years, Lamar Jackson has been the subject of criticism for most analysts due to his lack of finesse in passing the ball. Most of his plays were seen as a common one and they even led to some losses as he could not make the needed passes.

That changed in one snap in the 2021-22 season and Lamar is now ready to roll for more wins with the team. If this is what the star promised of a growth in his games, then this is going to be a big change for the team’s chances of winning a title in this run.

Jackson is now a one-man show. He ranks as the 15th best offence in the league. As a passer and runner, he has outpaced the entire offensive game of teams such as the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts. These teams have a lot of great offensive options and star QBs in their roster.

Jackson continues to bring the best of his game

Jackson led the Ravens to 22 unanswered points to seal a win in overtime against the Colts. This just puts him back into the MVP talks and his overall games in the 2021-22 season have made him a big name.

The Ravens rely on their top star to make their offence work both on the air and on the ground. So far, Jackson needed only five weeks to score big numbers and launch the Ravens into the top of the NFL table.

On top of that, Lamar has passed more yardage than 17 teams on his own. The Ravens came into this run with the hopes of mixing up their offence. They want to take off some pressure on Jackson while asking him to do even more.

It hasn’t always been this way for the star. When Lamar came into the league, the Ravens helped him improve his run game. The team had a better ground attack and became one of the most efficient units in the league.

Jackson is proving his worth

Prior to the start of the new season, people around the league said that this might be the year that everyone will see the bad side of Lamar. That is not what happened for the team as the star shined bright with just a few games in. It is easy to expect that the Ravens will ride on his back en route to a chance at the title.

From being a criticised star, Jackson is now raising a lot of eyebrows and is pulling off a lot of wins in his run with the Ravens. Defence can’t find a way to stop him, and the plan is to remain consistent all the way to the season finish.

Jackson used to be a good passer, and now he is a great one. He is doing his job well which brings more success for the Ravens. No one can deny that he is at his best and this season might be his for the taking.
