It seems everyone had something to say about Lamar Jackson after Louisville’s exciting (and stressful) win over Purdue.
Here are a few tweets from pro-athletes and other sports figures regarding his play.

Really bad decision by Lamar Jackson to not be every single player on his team at once tonight. Gotta work on that

David Hale – ESPN
Lamar doesn't play defense and he didn't fumble. He was spectacular. Did you watch? https://t.co/dA3TiI4Jqg

Ian Wharton, the Bleacher Report’s NFL Draft analyst had a glowing review of Lamar’s performance.
There wasn't much to say negatively about Lamar Jackson's play vs. Purdue. Had 2 errant throws in the red zone but elite game tape overall

The Shadow League took issue with Lamar not being a 1st Team All American QB.

Even noted Lamar hater Joel Klatt, who infamously left Lamar off his Preseason Top 5 QB list, took notice.
Lots of great QB performances week 1, but here are my top 5
5) Drew Lock
4) Lamar Jackson
3 Mason Rudolph
2) Baker Mayfield
1) Josh Rosen

This list will continue to be updated throughout the season.
