Jacksonville jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey isn’t one to shy away from the spotlight or say what’s on his mind. That was made crystal clear over the weekend prior to his week long suspension for going after the local Jacksonville media, but really I think we all love it when Jalen Ramsey talks trash because he’s exceptionally good at it.
Recently, Ramsey did an interview with GQ magazine and had some very specific thoughts about some of the quarterbacks in the league, including incoming rookies. One rookie specifically, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, Ramsey thinks is uh... bad.
“I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash,” Ramsey told Clay Skipper of GQ Magazine. “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. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that.✞ He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better? He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.”
In fairness to Josh Allen, he didn’t play Iowa State while at Wyoming, but he did play against Iowa and did not play well in the 24-3 loss, throwing two interceptions.
On the flip side, I have a hard time seeing Allen being good because he was simply not good in college. It’s hard to be bad in college, then suddenly be good in the NFL, regardless of surrounding cast which is something Allen kind of blamed his poor play on.
Regardless of Jalen’s feelings on the media, he’s still the king of trash talk and it’s hilarious.
