So why does Jackson only throw inaccurately when targeting Brown and not anyone else on the team?

His efficiency has been surprisingly bad since he surprised the worst team in NFL history for two long catches.
Last 3 weeks are 29 targets resulting in a 48% catch rate and a paultry 5.4 YPT.
I'm surprised people are as high on him as they are. I like him a good bit too but his value has eclipsed his production by a lot. He's still a prospect but people are treating him like he already broke out.
Obviously you really are not watching the game tape.
Just last week He was wide open in the end zone for an easy TD but the throw was in the dirt.
The Ravens have a young Qb and rookie WR.
You can throw out stats to bolster your case but remember this.
“There are Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics”
Making claims without understanding this will get push back for those that study the numbers behind Statistics.
Brown will be fine, Lamar will be fine but there is a learning curve.
Anyone that sells Brown cheap IMO is a fool so if you think he is really regressing watch every play before you buy into the gross stats.
I'm not claiming Hollywood stinks or anything as I am heavily invested in him and haven't watched a ton of the Ravens. I'm more asking than telling. But stepping back and trying to be objective about it, "his efficiency stats are horrible solely because of the QB" is a dubious excuse when everyone else getting targets from the same QB has efficiency stays that are fine.
Fair question so let's look at it. In the Food for Thought Department!
Brown has been targeted 34 times this year which is tied for 19th. Even that is a bit misleading given R. Woods is tied for 5th with only 4 more targets.
Having said that Brown only has 1 drop.
One thing to consider is basic chemistry. Brown and Lamar haven't had much of an opportunity to develop their timing given Brown missed all of OTA's and basically all of training camp and the pre season. Pretty much everyone knows chemistry takes serious time which is why QB's work at it all the time with WR's..
Complicating matters some is the fact there is Game Speed and then there is M. Brown Speed. That does matter. Other issues are QB pressure on throws. The latest Brown incomplete pass was over the middle in the end zone but there was pressure. This wasn't his only in-completion for a TD BTW.
The real take away here is this young duo is attempting to hook up at a WR1 rate. 3 less targets than Julio and OBJ as an example and 2 less than D. Hopkins. Looking at Hopkins, Brown has 0.5 points less YTD and Brown has 2.6 more points YTD than OBJ. Julio has no issues with his QB.
The real observations when dealing with Brown is he isn't the only WR with some connection issues. BTW, Hopkins has 2 drops and OBJ has zero drops.
While I am NOT putting Brown in their class at this point it does broaden the actual picture of the QB/WR relationship and that certainly isn't exclusive to Lamar and M. Brown.
