This week, Lamar Jackson joined Michael Vick as the only two quarterbacks to surpass 1,000 rushing yards over the course of a single season. That in itself is actually quite fitting, given that Jackson has been compared to Vick since long before the pre-draft process because of how devastating he is with the ball in his hands in open space.

We simply haven’t seen many quarterbacks with the kind of athleticism that Lamar Jackson possesses, and as the only one that came close in that regard, Vick became the obvious comparison.
