Ramsey sounds off on NFL QBs.
Jacksonville Jaguars' Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey is one of the best young defensive players in the NFL, and he has no problem letting people know about it. He also has no problem telling opposing QBs that they suck, as evidenced by his recent interview with GQ Magazine.
For instance, when it comes to Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen, Ramsey tells GQ, "Allen is trash. I don't care what nobody say. He's trash. And it's gonna show too. That's a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback."
On Super Bowl winning QBs Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger, as well as 2016 MVP Matt Ryan:
"And just being honest about it, [Joe] Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks."
"Big Ben [Roethlisberger], I think he's decent at best… It's not Big Ben, it's [Antonio Brown]. Big Ben slings the ball a lot of the time. He just slings it, and his receivers go get it. He has a strong arm, but he ain't all that. I played him twice last year, and he really disappointed me. He'll be in the Hall of Fame and all that."
"I think Matt Ryan's overrated. You can't tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones? There's no way that should ever happen."
That said, Ramsey didn't trash EVERY QB in the NFL. When asked about QBs that don't suck, Ramsey tells GQ, "Aaron Rodgers does not. Tom Brady doesn't." He also had high praise for DeShaun Watson and Carson Wentz.
"Deshaun Watson, he'll be the league MVP in a couple years. One hundred percent. There's not even a debate about that. Him and Carson Wentz, for every year starting now until five to ten years, it's gonna be them two. They're that good."
Ramsey, set to enter his third NFL season, earned All-Rookie team honors in his first season and was named First Team All-Pro in 2017, as he helped lead a stout Jaguars defense that surrendered less than 17 points per game. The Jags will kick off their regular season on the road against the New York Giants on September 9.
