the ONLY “ranking” that matters is the one at the end of the season … you know: the SB winner

it’s STILL a team sport, and the TEAM wins (or loses) games … now, last I saw the TEAM was the reigning SB Champion, and that’s the ONLY thing that counts

In 2018 Pat literally did what no one has done before, and people still said he wasn’t the best player. Lamar does a good Vick impression and everyone’s screaming “this guys unstoppable”

So is there really someone that gives the Morning Huddle a 1 star rating everyday? This is a great accumulation of info.

Someone has been giving 1 star to just about all the articles.

Pretty lame considering people spend their own time, free of charge, to create AG and it’s content.

For Pete, I thought that was a given

Lamar is the best running QB in the league, however a QB is responsible for so much more than just running the ball. Pat’s bank account knows who is number one and it isn’t even close. I also believe he has a few trophies and awards in the cupboard as well.

I wouldn’t put Lamar Jackson in front of Russell Wilson, let alone Mahomes.

But Jackson played in one more game than the other two. /sarcasm/

I know there isn’t a GM that would either. How many 1st & 2nd round picks would need to be thrown in to trade Patrick for Lamar. There must be some number that would make it worthwhile, but I wouldn’t be interested.
