This week on ESPN's Monday Night Countdown, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young ranted about the way Baltimore Ravens coach Lamar Jackson did.

Young believes that the Ravens have to implement a sophisticated passing attack.

If not, Jackson will not be able to reach his full potential.

"I can't wait for someone to train Lamar Jackson in a sophisticated passing game.

I think he will be the greatest player in the history of the game,” Young said.

“But he keeps getting backed by the Ravens year after year because they double down on this [quick] thing, Lamar Jackson is great.”

On Friday's edition of The Herd, Fox Sports Radio host Colin Cowherd responded to Young's claim.

Cowherd disagrees with Young's stance on the Ravens.

He feels the coaching staff and front office have done a "great job" of supporting Jackson.

"Before the injury, Lamar Jackson was becoming a better thrower, the passing game was better, more sophisticated," Cowherd said.

"The idea that he hasn't gotten better – he's grown, he's gotten stronger, he's become more precise.

I think he did a great job."

The Ravens have invested a lot of draft capital in their offense since 2018, selecting Mark Andrews,

Orlando Brown, Hayden Harts, Marquis Brown, Devin DuVernay, J.K. Dobbins, Rashod Bateman and Tyler Linderbaum.

However, Baltimore's offense has not been able to score at a post-season high.

Maybe that's why Young wants the coaching staff to shake things up.
