When the developers of the "Madden" video game gave Jackson a 96 speed rating last month, he surpassed Vick as the fastest quarterback in the game's history.
The San Francisco 49ers announced this week the suspension of radio announcer Tim Ryan for an offensive comment he made about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson's dark skin tone. "But I started to get warm as the game went on and I took them off".
During Ryan's Monday appearance on KNBR, a Bay Area radio station and CNN affiliate, he said Jackson's skin color helped him disguise a dark football when running fake handoffs during a recent game.
Sherman said Ryan apologized to individuals at the 49ers team hotel.
49ers' defensive lineman Dee Ford also came to Ryan's defense. "I mean, that wasn't his fault that we said that he so contagious, and that's what the doctors told him".
They get a crack at the Bills in Week 15, and if the Steelers can win in the Sunday night game, they'll seize the top Wild Card seed from Buffalo. Of course - I think he knows now he could have used better judgment with his words.
"He's really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing", said Ryan, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Ryan apologized for his choice of words in a statement.
The 49ers issued a statement on the matter. He has never been sidelined since taking over as Baltimore's starting quarterback, playing in 20 straight games. We know Tim as a man of high integrity and are confident he will grow and learn from this experience.
They gain first downs on 30.8 percent of their carries, which is 4.7 percentage points higher than the mark of any other team.
