Mike Vick pays Lamar Jackson ultimate compliment
Lamar Jackson received the ultimate compliment after leading Louisville to a thrashing of Florida State on Saturday.
Following the Cardinals’ 63-20 victory over the Seminoles, former Virginia Tech star Mike Vick tweeted about Jackson and called him five times better than he was:
Lamar Jackson 5x better than what I was at V-Tech….Enough said!! #future

That’s about as awesome as it gets.
Vick was a superstar at Virginia Tech and led the Hokies to a national championship game against Florida State. He is widely considered one of the greatest dual-threat quarterbacks of our time because of his blazing speed and incredible arm. Jackson is showing similar abilities for the Cardinals.
And Jackson appreciated the compliment, calling Vick his “favorite player.”
Jackson on the Vick Tweet: “That meant a lot. He was my favorite player. I was amazed when they told me in the locker room."

Jackson had 146 rushing yards and four touchdowns, as well as 216 passing yards and a touchdown pass. He has posted 10 rushing touchdowns and eight passing touchdowns this season. And the best part of all is that he has maintained a great attitude through it all.
