    McDermott is going to cost us in a big game

    I'm not sure it is possible to stop being a fan of a team you have followed for 30 years. However, it is 100% your choice on how you choose to be affected by the team you follow. You can understand you have absolutely no control over how the team performs and find ways to not let the bad times adversely affect your life. Or, you can just continue to be miserable when things don't go well. I have followed this team for over 50 years and I do not think I could just stop being a fan. I have changed how I deal with being a fan of the Bills; however, I couldn't just stop being a fan - although, heaven knows I've had my moments of wondering, just like you.

    Ball Security Not all that Important to Josh Allen

    I honestly don't know how you could walk away from Allen's post game press conference thinking anything other than he was owning up to his mistakes, understood full well how important ball security is, and that he needs to do better. I think the OP is misinterpreting the statement. There were several times Allen was talking about risk vs reward, as in when he was explaining the interception at the end of the game. He stated there was a little over a minute left on the clock and they had no timeouts - and they needed "large chunks" of yardage and "checkdowns" were not going to help them. I believe that was a moment when ball security wasn't the most important thing to him. He still admitted it was a bad pass; however, he was trying to push the ball deep close to the sidelines - a pass he might not have attempted otherwise. On the other hand, when he talked about the 1st interception he clearly stated it was too much risk for limited reward and that he cannot make those kinds of throws. He owned up to some bad decisions. I'm good with that.

    Is Josh Allen your QB?

    And we have the video right in front of us. It wasn't at his ankles, it wasn't at his knees, and Clay didn't have to do anything at all except catch it. There are passes one could point to as examples of Allen's inaccuracy. This isn't one of them.

    Is Josh Allen your QB?

    In another thread, you said, "The guy is wide open with nothing but green grass in front of him and Allen threw a bullet at his ankles" In this thread, you said, "He's wide open and Allen throws a bullet at his knees." Now, it's at his waist, but he has to stretch for it. Which is it?

    Not only was it a good throw, but, Clay never even would have had to slow his stride and there was nobody in front of him for 20 yards.

    An absolutely awful take. Just watched it in slow mo several times. The ball was in front of Clay, waist high, in his hands. Nothing wrong with that pass. That drop was completely on Clay.

    Brandon Beane’s future

    Am I mistaken, or have I seen various versions of this same thread started by the same poster?
  8. It's not worth the effort. There are certain posters on this board who will carry on the narrative of Allen not just being inaccurate, but inaccurate in such a way that you would think he could barely keep a pass in the field of play.
  9. He is having an extraordinary year

    The Ringer calls Josh Allen "America's Most Mobile Mountain"

    Not contorting myself into knots and not upset in any way. Merely pointing out the inaccuracy fallacy that people seem to desparately cling to around here. Not sure why that bothers you so much...

    The Ringer calls Josh Allen "America's Most Mobile Mountain"

    I don't know for sure. It does appear to change trajectory. However, as to your overall point, I agree with you 100%. It was the only "wtf?" pass he could find in the last two games - which is enough for him to proclaim Allen to be abysmal.... How about 60% completion rate over the last two games on passes he actually threw to receivers. I don't worship Josh Allen (you won't find any posts of mine to support that) and I certainly don't think it is beyond the bounds to ask anyone to support their claims of inaccuracy over the last two weeks. Repeating tired narratives is so lazy. Sorry if it offends you to ask people to support their claims.

    The Ringer calls Josh Allen "America's Most Mobile Mountain"

    I watched that play in slow mo on the all 22 and I don't think it was tipped. Regardless, that was the one pass in the last two games that was in the category of "wildly" inaccurate. It is clear that Allen is playing much better football since coming back from his injury. This non-stop criticism of his accuracy is, IMO, ridiculous. If people come away from the last two games thinking his accuracy was a real issue, then, that is what they wanted to see. In the last two games he was 26 for 52 for a 50% completion rate. However, if you take away the two Hail Mary passes and the 7 intentional throw aways (to avoid a sack or negative play), then he was 26 for 43, for a 60% completion rate, 391 yards, and 3 TDs. And I won't even address the passess that should have been caught or the completions that were negated by penalty.

    1993 Houston Wildcard Comeback- Where were you guys

    I was living in NC at the time. I went to the gym to work out all my frustrations toward the end of the first half (thinking the game was all but over) - and . As I was walking out of the gym to head back home, there was a TV on and and the scoreboard was flashing "DEFENSE" and they were showing fans standing on their feet screaming - and then they showed the score and it was 38-31. Sat down and watched the rest of it right there.

    Please point out for us the plays in the Miami game that show his inaccuracy. He completed 11 of 12 passes under 20 yards. For the game, he deliberately threw 5 passes away to avoid a sack and completed 64% of all passes he actually tried to get to a receiver. Your takes are nothing more than lazy regurgitations of an overblown narrative. Josh Allen's passes are infinitely more accurate than your evaluations of his play.
