We All Know Why Bill Belichick Didn’t Draft Lamar Jackson

The Ravens play the Patriots this week in a game that Chickster says New England doesn’t have a chance to win. In the days leading up to the game, Bill Belichick has added some fuel to the fire that he normally doesn’t do.

In only a way Bill Belichick could do, the GOAT head coach (he’s still the GOAT even though it’s time for him to go) he started talking about Lamar Jackson’s contract situation.

“Without a doubt,” said Belichick, when asked if Jackson answered questions on his ability to play in the pocket, via WEEI’s Andy Hart. “It’s the type of the player, the MVP type of candidate. I think he’s more than answered them. But, we’ll see what his contract is, that will answer them.”

Now THAT is a troll job. There are many reasons why Belichick is saying what he’s saying.

A: Any Belichick opposing or internal player is going to get praise no matter who he is. Belichick never gives bulletin board material.

B: He wants no part of this bidding war. He just wants to drive the price up Baltimore gets trapped with him.

C: WE all know why Belichick drafted Sony Michel over Lamar Jackson in the 2018 NFL Draft even though it made no sense for him to do so needing a quarterback to put in place after Tom Brady. I’ll go more in-depth this time.

A few years ago, Urban Meyer said some things to the media that more people should have paid attention to. I understand that Meyer is a bit of a clown but this was important. Just read this quote.

“I’m always amazed how he takes these non-stars and makes them stars. He takes these players that you haven’t really heard much about and all of a sudden they’re making great plays in the biggest games of the year,” Meyer said via Landof10.com. “I started asking him about it and he made this point to me and I shared it with our team. He said, ‘At this point in my career, I want to coach guys I like. I want to coach guys I want to be around and that’s it.’ He said, ‘I’m not going to coach anybody else.’”

You know why Belichick drafted Sony Michel one spot ahead of Lamar Jackson? He didn’t want to coach Lamar Jackson.

This is why. Belichick didn’t want to deal with Lamar the guy. Acting a fool on the sidelines during a preseason game with sunglasses and a chain. Tom Brady took pay cuts because he wanted to win and have an amazing roster on his side. Lamar Jackson wants to match the Deshaun Watson contract. Lamar’s agent is his mother. Does this sound like the kind of guy Bill Belichick wants to coach?

Doesn’t it at least help explain a lot of the weird stuff that’s happened? Picking Cole Strange in the first round? Makes you think now, doesn’t it?
