Mike Vrabel has hilarious quote about trying to stop Lamar Jackson
Mike Vrabel and his Tennessee Titans are trying to devise a plan to slow down the most electrifying player in the NFL, and the way the coach has spoken about the task this week proves how much respect he has for his upcoming opponent.
Vrabel was asked by a reporter on Tuesday about trying to stop Lamar Jackson, and he had a hilarious remark about the Baltimore Ravens quarterback’s athletic ability.
Vrabel was asked about how to stop Lamar Jackson. “Other than try and tie his shoelaces together?”

That would be one way to handle it, but it doesn’t really sound like a viable option for the Titans. Vrabel was asked a similar question on Monday, and he said watching Jackson and the Ravens in action would be a lot of fun if he did not have to figure out a way to slow them down.
Titans coach Mike Vrabel on facing Lamar Jackson and Ravens: "They have the best player in the league who’s impossible to tackle. A great scheme. I think on any other day, it would be fun to watch but not when you’re trying to prepare for them and stop them."

Jackson is going to win the NFL MVP award, and he could not be more deserving. He rushed for over 1,000 yards this season and threw for 3,127 with 36 touchdown passes compared to just six interceptions. He is more than capable of beating defenses with his legs and arm, which has forced all those who said he couldn’t play quarterback in the NFL to tuck their tails between their legs.
Vrabel’s Titans were impressive in holding the Patriots to just 13 points in their win at New England on Saturday night, but those Tom Brady-led Pats had a plethora of issues on offense. Baltimore has very few, and it will take the Titans’ best performance of the year to pull off the upset.
