Jalen Ramsey has absolutely zero problem dishing out criticism of other NFL players, but when fans direct some (pretty accurate) criticism at him, he gets more than a little salty.
A little refresher…
Ramsey said about Danny Amendola, “He just got a brand-new contract and he is terrible.”
About Amendola’s former teammate Rob Gronkowski, Ramsey said, “I don’t think Gronk’s good.”
This was after he also obliterated most of the quarterbacks in the NFL, including Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and more.
• Matt Ryan: a “complete bust.”
• Joe Flacco: “Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks.”
Ramsey also said that Manning wouldn’t be very successful without Odell Beckham, Jr.
“It’s not really Eli. I think it’s Odell [Beckham Jr.]. I won’t say Eli’s good,” he said. “I’ll say Odell’s good.”
On Sunday, Manning didn’t throw for any touchdowns, but his assessment of OBJ seemed pretty accurate as he went off with 11 catches for 111 yards. And, unofficially, six of those catches for 87 yards were head-to-head with Ramsey.
You might also recall that before the season, when discussing their upcoming match-up, Ramsey said about OBJ, “He’s going to have some wins, I’m going to have some wins. I just plan on having more wins” and “we’re going to give the people a show the first game of the season.”
Apparently, all of those catches and yards were not Ramsey’s fault however, as he seemed to have rabbit ears with regard to NFL fans’ critique of the game.
Of course, Twitter being Twitter (just ask Aaron Rodgers), everyone and their brother then proceeded to troll him.
On the plus side for Ramsey, he was pretty spot-on with his takes on those quarterbacks, at least on Sunday as Roethlisberger, Allen, and Ryan did nothing special and/or were bad. Joe Flacco, however? Elite.
