'Trash' talk: Ramsey stands by take on QB Allen

Jalen Ramsey called Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen "trash" before the season, and Tuesday he didn't back off that assessment. "Everybody who knows me knows why I was so hard on him," said the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey said Tuesday he isn't backing off his comment that Buffalo Bills rookie QB Josh Allen is "trash," which he made during an offseason interview with GQ magazine. "Everybody who knows me knows why I was so hard on him," Ramsey said. "If you don't know me that's on you. If y'all look deep into it y'all can figure out why I was so harsh." Ramsey made that comment about Allen while answering a question regarding the 2018 NFL Draft. He wondered why Lamar Jackson wasn't the second quarterback drafted if teams were so enamored with the athleticism and mobility of No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield. The Bills took Allen seventh overall. Baltimore drafted Jackson with the last pick in the first round.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said QB Blake Bortles remains the starter as the team tries to snap a six-game losing streak on Sunday in Buffalo. "When you say that, you've got to see if someone you put in there is going to be better," Marrone said about lineup changes in general. "That's the point of what it is right now and I don't think that we've ever not looked at if we can put someone in there that's going to perform better. That comes during the week of practice. Then if someone can perform better during that week we'll be able to do that. You can't just replace people just to replace them. You've got to replace them with people that you feel are going to do a better job for you." Bortles completed 10-of-18 passes for 104 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to Pittsburgh.

Bills QB Josh Allen on Monday called Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey “maybe one of the best corners in the game.” Asked about how much Ramsey's comments to GQ in August that Allen is “trash” still sits with him, Allen said, "It doesn't. I honestly don't even remember what he said. I could care less. It's more about what my teammates feel about me, how I'm progressing right now. I'm just trying to continue to learn the game of football, enjoy this and live it with my teammates."

What a first half by the Jaguars defense, which held the Steelers to 66 total yards (including 13 rushing) and picked off QB Ben Roethlisberger twice. This is the unit everyone expected to see but hadn't shown up since Week 4 and had been besieged by what the players called "communication" problems. Roethlisberger has nine turnovers In the last 10 quarters against the Jaguars (8 INTs, one fumble). The Jaguars haven't gotten much out of QB Blake Bortles, but they have run for 141 yards and have held the ball for 22:15.

Jaguars RG A.J. Cann (hamstring) and NT Marcell Dareus (triceps/back) are questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, but coach Doug Marrone is optimistic they'll be able to play. LT Josh Walker (foot/ankle) is doubtful and Marrone said Ereck Flowers would start in Walker's place, backed up by the recently-signed Patrick Omameh. If Cann does not play, Chris Reed would make his second start of the season.
