John Harbaugh leaned forward and stared into the eyes of his young leader.

Baltimore’s drubbing of the Bengals this past Sunday. “Do you know how many little kids in this country are going to be wearing No. 8 playing quarterback for the next 20 years?”’ data-reactid=”17″>“You changed the game, man,” Harbaugh told the 22-year-old, as the pair sat on the sideline during Baltimore’s drubbing of the Bengals this past Sunday. “Do you know how many little kids in this country are going to be wearing No. 8 playing quarterback for the next 20 years?”

That intimate, indelible moment offered a rare window into Jackson’s world and the special bond between the head coach and his most trusted asset. It also crystallized how special a gift Jackson is to the Ravens, to the city of Baltimore and anyone who loves the NFL.

He’s the most electrifying player in the game according to Pro Bowl and All-Pro defenders who have been tasked with trying to contain him in and out of the pocket. He gives head coaches and coordinators fits because he possesses a rare blend of traits that make playmakers great: speed, accuracy, athleticism and an unwavering will to be the best to ever do it.

If it was so easy to put up 59 points on the Dolphins, the Patriots and Cowboys would also have done so in Weeks 2 and 3, and the Jets and Colts wouldn’t have lost to Miami. 

If it was so easy to beat Bill Belichick’s team, another team would have done so already in 2019.
