Jalen Ramsey knows how to talk, and he’s not afraid to show it.
Apparently he’s not afraid of Andrew Luck either.
In a recent GQ story about the star cornerback, Ramsey had some harsh words for #12.
“Andrew Luck—I don’t really think he’s that good. Him and T.Y. [Hilton] had a connection in the past that made him stand out a little bit more, but I don’t think he’s good.”
That’s not just saying, “I’m confident we’ll be OK against the Colts even with the return of Andrew Luck.”
That’s full on “that guy sucks”.
Big of Jalen to make such claims when he’s never played against a healthy Andrew Luck. Even when his shoulder was about to fall off, and we didn’t even know it, Luck still led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter to beat Ramsey’s Jags during the corner’s rookie season.
It’s edging on the line of, “Wow this guy Ramsey is really confident”, and, “Jalen Ramsey is a delusional PR stunt.”
Blake Bortles reads this story and is afraid to see Ramsey in the locker room. It’s easy for Jalen to say anything about his QB because even if he threw a punch, he’d probably miss.
The worst part about this is when Luck is inevitably asked about this, he’ll brush it off with a franchise quarterback answer. Something along the lines of, “yeah I mean, Jalen is a great player. I don’t pay attention to that kind of stuff, everyone’s entitle to their own opinion. And hey, I didn’t play last year so technically I’m not very good right now (laughs awkwardly), but I look forward to competing against him again.”
November 11 at Lucas Oil Stadium can’t come soon enough.
