Chris Russo Says Lamar Jackson Is Overprotected: NFL World Reacts


Chris “Mad Dog” Russo is well-known for his controversial sports opinions.

During Friday’s episode of First Take, the polarizing analyst revealed one more debate-inducing tackle Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Russo said Jackson is “overprotected” from criticism by the media.

“Everyone knows that Jackson is an awesome player, he’s fun to observe. Everyone in America knows that. But he’s so hyped because if Jackson plays an awesome game and his team is winning games, we make him out to be Johnny Unitas. But If you happen to criticize him when he has a nasty game, unexpectedly we’re being too critical of him,” Russo said.

The NFL world took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Russo’s take.

“I swear they go from ohhhh he’s great after which they create up Josh Allen’s playoff run… Regardless of how great he’s y’all going move that goal post,” one fan wrote.

“I feel he’s each overprotected and unfairly criticized at times,” one other added.

“Hilarious that ‘overprotected’ was used here yet it’s attributable to sports media outlets always nitpicking the whole lot he does. You never see them same questions or statements made for Allen, Herbert, etc. after a poor performance. So if nobody else will defend him, we’ll,” one other said.

Jackson will look to prove his haters and critics unsuitable in his fifth season with the Ravens in 2022.
