No doubt that Jackson is having a record book season. One big advantage that he has is about the best offensive line in the NFL. He has the time to find receivers and the holes to run through because of that line. Maybe I am a little prejudiced because Marshall Yanda, multiple Pro Bowl pick at guard is from Anamosa. But when you put an amazing QB like Jackson with that kind of line protection, you have a combination that is hard to beat.

Lamar is awesome, definitely the league MVP .. he just might revolutionize the QB position, with every team looking to draft the next lamar jackson ..

He makes everyone else on the field look slow.

Hey Mark, I think every time I posted anything about the Ravens in here over the years, you showed some love for your hometown guy. Marshal Yanda is one of the most beloved players amongst Ravens fans. Having a team that was built on defense and running for so long has made us all very appreciative of our linemen. We’re always talking about how the opponents offensive line looks for the upcoming games.

One of my favorite things about Yanda- aside from his play- was an interview in which he said he hates lazy people and added something like “Lazy people piss me off”

He is a great veteran player to set an example for all of the young players in this Ravens team.

They say they're all corn-fed there in Iowa. Maybe that's the secret.

Yeah , not bad but he does not have an interception. Not even one. His defence sucks.

Spudder, when talking NFL it is “defense” with an S. You must be located outside the great USA... definitely not Texas.

The Baltimore Ravens defense is currently ranked #3 in points allowed and #5 in yards allowed. The defense is outstanding, as usual, in Baltimore.

Good catch on the language difference. You are right and I am located in the even greater north.

Maybe the reason Yanda doesn't like lazy people is the way he approached high school classes. While he excelled in football, he blew off his classes and didn't have good enough grades to go to Iowa right after high school. He had to go to North Iowa Area Community College for 2 years. There he worked like crazy, both on the field and in class to earn a scholarship to Iowa for his last 2 years. The hard work got him where he is today. He tries to encourage young kids to work hard too.He puts on a summer football camp every year in Anamosa.

Learning the hard way is pretty effective. It’s good to hear that he is so active there in the community- almost sounds like you’ve met him personally. You ought to hook him up with some giant pumpkin seeds. Maybe I will send some to Owings Mills....

I haven't met him but have seen him on the streets. I think I saw him play at Kinnick stadium one time I chaperoned the Jr. High band to see a game against Minnesota. My son said he was at Pumpkinfest one time; either they had a bye week or it was the year he was off with a broken leg. He was 4 years ahead of my daughter in school. when she was in 8th grade and had orientation day at the high school. Marshal led her group around. He made some donations to the athletic program and they named the weight lifting center after him. He spends the off season in Marion, just 15 miles to the west. He looks like any other local farmer, just huge and muscular.
