However, they have both had their fair share of disagreements, which has kept the show going forward. On Monday, they had an in-depth conversation about the NFL world, and it led to a hot take about Lamar Jackson.

Shannon Sharpe Gives His Take

"Lamar Jackson has been up and down and it's been masked because they're winning," Sharpe said. "It's hard for me to trust Lamar. It's hard for me to trust this team."

With that being said, it is easy to see how Sharpe might be wary of what Jackson can do next.
