Tom Brady Responds To Jalen Ramsey Guaranteeing The Jaguars Beat The Patriots, Win The Super Bowl
Jacksonville Jaguars shutdown corner Jalen Ramsey is quickly becoming a national treasure. Not only is he already one of the best defensive backs in the NFL, he’s also almost as entertaining off the field as he is on it.
So it came as little surprise that Ramsey decided to go full Namath after the Jaguars’ 45-42 over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday when he returned home to celebrate with fans at EverBank Field.
“I ain’t got too much to say. But y’all make sure y’all bring that same energy out here next week and the week after, We goin’ to the Super Bowl AND we gonna win that bitch!” Ramsey told the Jaguars’ faithful.
“I think what I have learned for a long time is it’s how you play, it’s not what you say,” Brady said. “Everyone has different ways of handling things — players do, coaches do. We do what works for us, other players do what works for them. The game is going to be decided by who plays the best, not who hypes the best or speaks the best. He’s a really good player. I have watched a ton of film on him. He has a lot of strengths. He’s obviously very confident. That is reflected in how he plays. I am more concerned about how he plays opposed to what he says.
“I have never bought into any of those things. I know what our offense is capable of. We’re going to have to play really well to score points. Again, that just speaks to the hype and us really trying to stay focused on what we need to do. The better we stay focused on the more laser-focused we are on our target, the better I think we will play.”
That doesn’t mean he thinks things will be easy on Sunday.
“There’s not a lot of time for the quarterback to throw. I think the whole secondary knows it. The linebackers know it. They are aggressive. They take chances. They have a lot of turnovers. They have a really good scheme. The quarterback is just under pressure all day and unless you can get open quickly, it’s been a lot of sacks. Sacks turn into long-yardage and long-yardage turns into punts.”
A few things to keep in mind, however, are the fact that while the Jaguars defense allowed the second fewest points in the league and were the top-ranked pass
defense, the Jaguars are 0-7 against the Patriots when Tom Brady plays, the Patriots’ defense has actually allowed fewer points than the Jags D over the last six games, Ben Roethlisberger threw for for 469 yards and 5 TDs just last week against them, and then there’s this…
Does all that mean that the Jaguars vaunted defense is overrated a little bit? Maybe. Maybe not. But who’s going to bet against this guy?
