Lamar Jackson

CBS Sports writer, Sean Wagner-McGough, released an article and his mock draft where he has Lamar Jackson going 12th overall to the Cincinnati Bengals.

12. Cincinnati Bengals

Lamar Jackson, QB, LouisvilleThe Bengals do the unexpected by drafting Dalton’s successor in Jackson, who is definitely a quarterback and definitely not a receiver. It’s time to move on from Dalton — if not this year then next year. Once the Bengals do move on from Dalton, Jackson will be their quarterback of the future, most likely under a new coach too.

Nunnsense | Will Lamar Stay Or Go?


Lamar Jackson

There is a lot going on at The University of Louisville but the question everyone is asking is, “Will Lamar declare for the NFL draft or will he return for his senior year?”

It’s funny that everyone seems to have the answer. Everyone knows someone who knows someone who said that they know what he is going to do. Don’t believe anything you hear because nobody really knows, including Lamar.

Lamar said that he wouldn’t even entertain the idea until after the bowl game. While I believe that he and his mom probably didn’t start talking about it till after the bowl game, you would be crazy to believe that he hasn’t spent a few restless nights pondering what he should do by weighing the pros and cons. It’s just human nature.

Let’s be honest here. The only reason to leave is money and the only reason to stay is to put yourself in a better position to make more money in the future.  Read the rest of this entry

Louisville vs Mississippi State: Postgame Recap

The Louisville Cardinals fell to Mississippi State 31-27 today. Despite leading 21-17 at halftime, Louisville was unable to put Miss St away and Lamar Jackson’s Hail Mary heave fell incomplete to end the Cards’ season.

Louisville had numerous opportunities to the put the game out of reach, but turnovers and only scoring on 2 field goals in the 2nd half weren’t enough for the Cardinals to win.

In what could have been his last game as a Cardinal, Lamar didn’t have his normal day. He threw a career-high 4 interceptions, was 13-31 passing for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns and amassed 158 yards on 24 carries with 1 touchdown on the ground. Though not his best day and the scouts may point to this game instead of the countless others he was spectacular in, we all know how Lamar will go down in history if this was his last time as a Cardinal, for that, we are all eternally grateful.

Jaylen Smith led the Cards in receiving today with 7 receptions for 107 yards and 1 touchdown.

Thank you to all the seniors for your time as a Cardinal. Thank you to the guys who decide to leave early and good luck in all your future endeavors. Card fans will always support our own.

Go Cards!
