  1. He definitely didn’t but whatever.

    Is Josh Allen Injury Prone?

    No.

    The NE vs. KC Game was garbage......

    It was a great game. But I just like any game where the outcome is in doubt throughout. I prefer a 24-21 game with great defense too but there is no denying that last night was an instant classic.

    Did I miss something? Where is White going? He’s under team control for another three years after this year.

    It’s 2018. Applebee’s has good beer.

    Someone needs to be fired over Mahomes right now.

    I never said they didn't.

    Someone needs to be fired over Mahomes right now.

    There is no question that Patrick Mahomes is and will be a better NFL QB than Josh Allen. None. That being said, Mahomes LITERALLY has had the most ideal transition to becoming a starting NFL QB of any QB ever (with the possible exception of Aaron Rodgers) and Josh Allen has LITERALLY had the least ideal transition to becoming a starting NFL QB of any QB ever (including David Carr). And this is not hyperbole. It is impossible to compare the two of them apples to apples.

    Benchmarks for Allen

    You mean the game they won because Luke Kuechly got flagged for a very suspect PI that kept the winning drive alive? Yes, Allen looked much better against Minnesota than Manuel did that game. Allen literally threw maybe two bad passes all game. Not to mention, Manuel had, like, real guys to work with and that was his best game as a pro. The following week against the Jets, he was every bit as bad as Allen was today, if not worse. If Allen doesn't exhibit the level of play he showed against Minnesota again this season, then we have a problem. I am confident he will.

    Benchmarks for Allen

    Allen looked better against Minnesota than EJ Manuel has ever looked in a game in his NFL career. Just relax. They have A LOT of dollars and oh yes they can, and they will.

    Has anyone else noticed that the NFL has turned into the arena league?

    Yes, I agree that passing every play is more efficient than running. That was kinda like the point of my post. And as other people have pointed out, that’s probably always been the case. But QB’s being way better now, coupled with rule changes designed to bolster offense, has changed the way the game looks and I don’t like it as much. That doesn’t make me a NASCAR fan?

    ? No. I love baseball. I don't like guys who hit 40 HR's and strike out 200 times and the fact that strikeouts across the board are inflated but I still love baseball. So when the New Jersey Devils ruined hockey with the trap (essentially doing the reverse of what's happening in the NFL), I'm assuming you stopped watching? Not sure why we can't have a friendly conversation about how the game we all love has so blatantly changed.

    This is not accurate. Although again, I am the first to concede that the numbers do not look as staggeringly different as the game feels to me. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/NFL/scoring.htm

    Dude I am the most liberal person on this entire website. Nice attempt at satire though.

    Goff was gashing them for more than that. My point is that whether Gurley was running effectively or not, they didn’t really need him to. Everyone in the stadium can know that a guy is passing every play now and they can be just as effective, regardless of whether they have established a running game. You see it all the time.
