Lamar Jackson has no doubt that Michael Vick is first-ballot Hall of Famer

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson does not want to hear slander about his stylistic predecessor.

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback encountered a tweet this weekend asking if Michael Vick was a first-ballot Hall of Famer and replied simply by saying, “Thiz can’t be a real question.”

For Vick, who last played in 2015 and will be eligible for the Hall of Fame after next season, his case is a very interesting one. Detractors will point to Vick’s short-lived peak, mediocre accuracy as a passer, and lack of playoff success as reasons that he should not be in at all. But the electrifying dual-threat star was one of the most iconic quarterbacks of the 21st century and directly influenced waves of players like Jackson, who won NFL MVP this year.

Whether that is enough to get him in the Hall is up for debate, but it is clear where Jackson, who has a special bond with Vick, stands on the matter.
