Lamar Jackson Admits He Did “A Lot Of Cursing” During “Inappropriate” Halftime Speech



Lamar Jackson says he gave an impassioned halftime speech filled with “a lot of cursing” during the Baltimore Ravens’ 34-10 win over the Houston Texans in the divisional round of the playoffs on Sunday. After the break, the team scored 24 unanswered points to lock in the victory. When asked about the speech, he described it as “inappropriate” to repeat.

“It would be inappropriate if I said it right here,” Jackson admitted to reporters. “We weren’t doing our job with our unit. In the second half, we wanted to put points on the board, start moving the ball, moving the chains and start looking like ourselves.” After being asked to elaborate on the halftime speech, he said there was “a lot of cursing.”

When asked about his reaction to the fiery speech, left tackle Ronnie Stanley said with a smirk: “I hear the message, not just the [curse] words. I know what he’s trying to say. He’s a very competitive player. He wears his heart on his sleeve. We all know what he wants, and that’s just to win.” While the game was even 10-10 at the half, Jackson and the rest of the Ravens took over for the next two quarters. Jackson finished as the first player in NFL history to put up at least 2 touchdown passes, 2 touchdown runs, 100 yards rushing, and a 100.0 passer rating in the same game.
