How is saying Jackson isn’t as good as cam down playing jackson’s running ability? That’s like saying because I said Watson isn’t as good as Rodgers is downplaying Watson’s passing ability. You’re trying to compare a dude who has played 2 games to the most productive rushing QB in the HISTORY of the NFL. When its all said and done, he is going to own every single rushing record there is. If you’re ready to crown Jackson as the GOAT, go for it. I’ll hold.
Cam rushed for 706 yards and 14 TDs averaged 44.1 yards per game and 5.6 ypc on top of passing for 4k yards and 21 TDs and was a pro bowler in his rookie season. And he did that on averaging well below half the carries that Jackson has gotten, another fact that you seem to just completely ignore. If you give cam 26 carries or 17 carries, he would easily break 100 yards every single game lol. Total yards is meaningless when the attempts are more than double. In fact, Jackson is averaging less yards per carry (4.9) over this “historic” 3 game stretch than Cam did in both his rookie season (5.6) and over his entire career (5.2) which included 919 total carries. When Jackson accomplishes that feat or anything remotely close, I’ll happily backtrack my opinion. Until then, as far as I’m concerned anyone who thinks Jackson is a better rusher than Cam can go kick rocks. You’re trying to take a 2 game sample size against 2 of the worst defenses in the league and say Jackson is now a better rusher? I honestly don’t even comprehend how this is a discussion right now. It’s a joke.
Watson isn’t Jackson’s upside. Watson is a smart dude and a proven winner in an offense which great weapons and great offensive scheme. Watson is always looking to pass first and rush second. Jackson, doesn’t have nearly the same potential cause he will always be a run first QB. And sure maybe watson has done <250 for a bit because his team hasn’t needed him to go and launch for massive yardage. But fact remains that we have already seen watson be able to do that when needed. He is more than capable of going out and throwing for 400 yards and 4-5 TDs. Jackson can’t do that. So to say Jackson has Watson potential is a reach at best.
Hell if you’re looking for a running QB floor, go and get Josh Allen. He has been better than Jackson in every metric and is 3rd in the NFL in rushing yards over the past 3 weeks. Ahead of Jackson. Is Allen also better than Cam now? Come on man, let’s get real.
