Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has been disrespected in the past, but his latest ranking by Pro Football Focus might be the most controversial stance yet.
On Monday, PFF came out with their annual list of the top-10 quarterback around the NFL. Lamar Jackson was ranked 10th. The analytics-driven list claimed Dak Prescott, Matt Ryan, Kirk Cousins and Baker Mayfield were all better than Lamar.

Sure enough, fans were fed up with how low Lamar Jackson was ranked.
Last two seasons completely ignoring rushing statistics:
Lamar Jackson: 62 passing TD’s, 15 INT’s, 106.6 passer rating, 24-6 record
Kirk Cousins: 61 TD’s, 19 INT’s, 106.1 rating, 17-14 record https://t.co/yhmtc6ppdz

When Lamar Jackson wins a Super Bowl, the receipts that are going to be pulled out from Ravens fans all over the world will be legendary

Lamar Jackson IMO. Like if Paul George or Lamar Jackson lead a team to a Finals/Superbowl victory they immediately are viewed very differently. They both really show out in the regular season but haven't found playoff success. https://t.co/7R1t0U9zwD

While I don’t agree with a lot of Ravens fans who claim Lamar Jackson is better than Josh Allen, I think he belongs higher than 10th.
I can live with the top five QBs PFF has ranked. But I’d slide Lamar right after them in the #6 spot. That is, if we’re continuing to keep Deshaun Watson out of these lists due to the fact that he probably won’t be playing next season.
Either way, Lamar Jackson deserves a little more respect.
