Stephen A. Smith is one of the king of hot takes, and he was back at it on Monday.
The ESPN personality thinks there are four current starting quarterbacks better than Ravens superstar QB Lamar Jackson.
As you saw by the massive contract he received, there is no question that Patrick Mahomes is the best QB in the entire league. While most might consider Jackson after he won the MVP this past season and set a ridiculous amount of records, Smith thinks otherwise.
The popular sports analyst believes Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson and Drew Brees are all better quarterbacks than Jackson right now.
“Not only do I have him top-two, I’ve got Russell Wilson ahead of him [Lamar Jackson],” Smith said on ESPN’s First Take. “Obviously Patrick Mahomes first. Russell Wilson. I’d put Deshaun Watson ahead of him. I really, really would. And of course, the greatness of Drew Brees because of his accuracy.”
