Former NFL GM Bill Polian Says Lamar Jackson is ‘Too Short’ (Too Black) To Play Quarterback in the NFL

“Short and a little bit slight,” Polian said of Jackson on ESPN’s Golic and Wingo Monday. “And clearly, clearly not the thrower that the other guys are. The accuracy isn’t there.”



Lamar Jackson is 6’3″ 211 pounds. Houston Texans quarterback, DeShaun Watson, is 6’3″ 215 pounds and he was in the MVP conversation last season before tearing his ACL. And DeShaun Watson wasn’t even allowed to play until Tom Savage got hurt even though Savage is a garbage can and Watson was clearly the best prospect coming out of college.

Derek Carr, Matt Stafford, Jay Cutler and Kirk Cousins are all 6’3. Aaron Rodgers is 6’2″.

The overall suggestion that Lamar Jackson has to play wide receiver is 1000% because he’s black and there is still a perception that black athletic quarterbacks have no place in the NFL for whatever reason while guys like Nathan Peterman will get nonstop opportunities to be mediocre.

Tyrod Taylor died for our sins.

Let’s agree that Lamar Jackson suffers from accuracy problems. What if Lamar wants to be a backup quarterback? It’s insane that we allow guys like Brandon Weedan to be career backups and no one is telling Weedan that he needs to learn to play tight end. Why can’t Lamar Jackson be a backup?


Ah yes, the physically imposing Johnny Manziel standing large at 6’0 200lbs. What a fucking tank. Good call, Bill Polian. In no way was Manziel too short or thin to play quarterback. It’s almost as if white quarterbacks get a chance to fail while black quarterbacks need to be once in a generation talents like Michael Vick in order to maintain their positions. Interesting.


Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Lamar Jackson will be a bust. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
