    Why compare him to a retired qb? Compare him to who is currently in the league and the answer is still yes. I said it

      Lamar isn't even in the same zip code as Michael Vick was. He's already a much better passer and he doesn't pass as much because he doesn't need to. There are quarterbacks in the NFL who pass for nearly 300 yards a week like Matthew Stafford who never wins a lot of games.

        Lamar only had 105 yards passing today (12/1/2019), so I don't think so. He did get the "W" though, and that's all that counts.

                Lamar is what Vick could've been if Vick played to his potential.

                  A piece of trash is better than Michael Vick. Michael Vick is an animal that needs to be put down and I hope one day he is.

                    I don’t think Lamar is better than mike but he is good when I saw in Louisville I knew he was the next Michael Vick

                      Didn't even watch the video SMH just want to say why is he being compared to Vick, all I remember about Vick was that he was a highlight reel and injury prone. Was Vick even an accomplished QB? Such a slap in the face this comparison to Mike Vick is. That's why I hate the racist NFL and their commentators and followers Jackson is not the same as Vick.

                        It's hard to really say, Michael had the potential to be as great as Lamar seems like he can be. But Michael had to improvise much of what he did. The Ravens saw his potential and they designed the offense around his strengths.

                          Vick was as good at running and slightly better passing in terms of natural ability. Vick's receivers dropped balls constantly. While that could have been due to the velocity of Vick's passes, it was largely due to him not having receivers with decent hands. Vick didn't have the support Lamar has, but in terms of pure talent he was better than Lamar is now though Lamar could get better.

                                Yes ...Lamar reads Ds better ...he's also running that SF offense under G.Roman should Kap really have a job???

                                  Let’s get one thing straight, Vick didn’t get beat up running the ball-he was beat up in the pocket. That punishment happened because he loved the deep ball far too much. Vick always wanted that end zone. Lamar is just taking what the defense gives him. They’ll take five to six yards at a time, until the opening is there.

                                      yes, Lamar is better. Vick has no discipline. He was a know it all. He had happy feet. Did he ever get better??

                                        It was the rams when the 49ers beat them we heard that the rams arent any good so why is it not when the ravens do it everyone acts like the rams are amazing and it's a big deal the rams suck this year so he beat a bad team

                                          Lamar Jackson has BEEN better. Lamar Jackson LAST YEAR is about what Michael Vick was in his best years in Atlanta.

                                                    I'm so happy Baltimore created a system to fully use Jackson's play style instead of trying to change him.

                                                      Lamar Jackson is most definitely better than Michael Vick.

                                                        I love the comment about stats. The pass attempts and total yards passing are two things that his doubters like to point to. When you run for 95 yards and your total team rushing yards are 288 for a game and you only pass for 169 total yards how do you expect a person to throw for more yardage? Keep in mind that Lamar played 6 possessions in that game and his team scored a touchdown on every single one. That is perfect for an offense. Doesn't matter if you run a lot or pass a lot.

                                                              Jackson is better than Vick... But not better than Kapernick. Period

What if the so-called "pocket passer" gets hits so bad (cause ALL QBs get hit), will he become a "running QB"?... oh nope, he just won't be play anymore? - There I say, Andrew Luck!
