Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has quickly established himself as one of the biggest trash talkers in all of football.
This time, he took a few verbal jabs at a handful of quarterbacks in an interview with Clay Skipper of GQ. It all started with Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen, who has yet to throw a pass in the NFL.
"I think Allen is trash. I don't care what nobody say. He's trash," Ramsey said. "And it's gonna show too. That's a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback."
Ramsey then focused on Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, the 2016 MVP winner who was oh-so-close to leading his franchise to a Super Bowl 51 championship. We all know how that went.
"I think Matt Ryan's overrated. You can't tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones?" Ramsey said. "There's no way that should ever happen."
Ramsey also took a jab at Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco, a Super Bowl 47 champions who has been marred by inconsistent play over the last five years. "Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks," Ramsey said.
Finally, Ramsey said that he doesn't think Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is "that good." Ramsey then asked Skipper who "the Miami Quarterback is," then admitted he doesn't know Ryan Tannehill that well and wouldn't offer an opinion.
Though many will be critical of Ramsey for talking so much trash early in his career thus far, the third-year corner has backed it up more often than not. His Jaguars were a few non-blown calls away from reaching Super Bowl 52, and Pro Football Focus gave Ramsey a 91.3 grade for 2017, one of the highest grades from last season.
The Jaguars have two games against Luck and the Colts, plus a Week 12 showdown with the Bills, which means Ramsey could get his chances against Luck and Allen. We'll see if he's able to back up all the talk throughout the 2018 season.
