    National Josh Allen buzz after 1 preseason half

    Look at Allens winning percentage on a rebuilding team. Allen is a winner, stats are for people who don't know how to play the game. Allen does the big and little things to win games, get used to it. He could go 1 for 50, and if he wins I don't care. That is one thing people don't understand about sports. To win all you have to do is score 1 point more than the other team. I could care less if the Bills win ugly, as long as they win. And trust me, Allen won some ugly games at Wyoming. Allen is a winner, and it will only get better.

    Don't bring up that the people around him didn't hold up their end. Keep hating. Keep throwing out the negative. Do you remember Reynaldo Nehemia (sp) track star turned 49er?

    Josh Rosen vs Josh Allen: Game 1 Comparison

    No much to tell. He hardly ever missed a play, and took some hard hits. His 1st game at Wyoming he got hurt and had the pins put in. He then hit the weight room and bulked up. His 2016 year was huge, especially considering it was year 3 of a rebuild year. His last year was ugly. The theme was to control clock through ball control. Vigen ran it on 1st and 2nd down. And expected Allen to bail him out on 3rd down. The problem was the other team knew our plays and tendencies. Played an 8 man front. Allen was on the run most of the time. Allen needed an OC like Daboll.

    Josh Rosen vs Josh Allen: Game 1 Comparison

    There were some reports that said he was hurt in high school his sophomore year? That story came out this year. It had never been reported while he was at Wyoming. I figured after he got the pins and screws put in he would be more conservative, not in the least. He did learn how to slide better though. There were certain teams that targeted him in college, the MWC isn't known for their great officiating. I know Allens weaknesses better than most, he seems to be cleaning them up. How Vigen got lucky and got to coach Allen and Wentz is short of amazing. I personally don't feel Vigen is good enough to coach at the level he is at. It is obvious Allen is coachable, it looks like Vigen didn't have the tools to coach him up. The best thing the coaching staff did for Allen was keep the pro set offense in. I still wonder why Vigen couldn't understand he didn't have a good offensive line at Wyoming. That his run 1st offense hurt Allen and the team as a whole.

    As of now he is with the 2's. And it is a process, each team gets to decide how quick to move up the rookies. If you can't nderstand a basic like that, go watch hockey.

    Do you know the shoulder injury Allen had last year? It was a soft tissue injury. It happened on a flea flicker . He was in the process of throwing the ball when a defender hit and stretched the arm. The staff held him out of 2 and a half games as cautionary. So as not to ruin his career. He was on the sideline throwing bombs before for the Fresno State and SJSU games. If he was that injured, I don't think he would be warming up throwing deep passes before those two games. I was there for the Fresno game and saw it with my own 2 eyes. I really didn't think he would play in the bowl game to be honest. But it shows you his character that he did. He didn't want to let down his coaches, fans, and teammates. And he played in all 4 quarters of the bowl game, even though the outcome was already decided. Plus Vigen went back to his conservative play calling the 2nd half. In other words Allen went back to handing the ball off unless it was 3rd and long.
  7. If you moved on from it, it must have happened in a very short period. So is there a time frame when we just disregard whatever you happened to post earlier? That way I would know not to take what you wrote as the final word on all qb related issues. Just give Allen some time, he will make mistakes, but he is progressing. From everything I read is everyone wants Allen to not be Tyrod, thus not checkdown. He didn't checkdown, and got a TD. All is good.
  8. It wasn't open to an armchair qb at least. It was caught and called a TD wasn't it? Maybe someone needs to offer themselves up as a qb coach for the Bills. They seem to know it all.
  9. You need to let it go. You try and come off as this highly intelligent football mind, but in all actuality you want to still act like you are right about the Bills not drafting the guy you wanted. He is a rookie in his 1st game with guys all around him who were coming up short. But you want to hold him to higher standards? Let the hate go. It shows up in almost every post of yours about Allen. It is embarrasing. If you didn't notice, when he did the check downs like you wanted him to do, the spacing on the receivers was terrible. They were all grouped around the line. I don't know if it was by design or not, but the people on check downs need to float towards free space. Or another thought, maybe Carolina did a good job of taking them away. Armchair qb's are great about picking it apart the day after.

    As a former receiver, we were taught in jr. high not to give up on a play until the whistle blew. It has nothing to do with practicing together. Allens receivers in his last year at Wyoming would always give up on plays. It would piss me off to no end. In his sophomore year the reason he did so well on broken plays is because he had experienced receivers. I don't know if the receivers coach dropped the ball or just didn't coach it. But for some reason the receivers the year before knew what to do. It is one of the basic rules od a receiver. Run hard, or away from defenders on a broken play. We had it where one always ran back towards the qb, while the others went to open space. Preferably side to side as most qb's don't have the arm strength to throw it deep on the run. With an arm like Allens I wouldn't bother with one coming back towards the qb. I also played at the college level, although not division 1. They also taught not giving up on a play, you blocked if you thought he was running, kept trying to get open if he looked like he could throw. The best teams out there have great receiver blocking. And receiveers at the pro level should never quit on a play, especially if they are trying to catch on with a team. I would have cut anyone who hasn't figured out to never quit on a play. And others obviously agree with that on here.

    What I don't understand is when people say Allen played with the 3,s, so he faced crappier defenses. How do you know that was the case? Some teams are deeper than others. Carolina had a deep defense. And when you play with a weak 3rd and 4th string, how does that help you overcome a lack of talent? I feel you have no real theory to go off of. Just my opinion. No way you can evenly compare quarterbacks. Why even try? We won't know how Allen would have done against another teams 1,'s , simply because he never got the chance. So why try to even compare. There is no fair way to make your point. It was obvious Allen looked like he was back at Wyoming playing with players who lacked talent. The thing I did notice was that he was more mature and looked like he has been learning on the go. But there is no way to compare qb''s as they were all playing with different talent. On offense and defense. I felt Carolinas 3rd string defense was much better than the Bills 3rd string defense. And the Bills 3rd string O-line was atrocious. And watching some of the Bills receivers quit on plays when Allen was scrambling should get them cut. No reason for that at this level. There is just no way of comparing apples to oranges. You can try, but it won't work. And I understand that it is your opinion and I respect that, but also disagree with it.

    I will agree with size doesn't assure durability. I wrestled from 8 years old till 16 years old and had to make a choice between basketball and wrestling. I picked basketball. I hated cutting weight. I roomed with wrestlers all through college. Wrestlers come in all sizes and builds. College wrestlers are pound for pound some of the toughest athletes out there. Not sure about your point of Navy Seals proving anything. Is there a study or something out there? I guess I have never seen anything out there saying anything about Navy Seals having slight builds. I just assumed they came in all weights and sizes. At least the ones I have been around. I hope disagreeing with you doesn't get me booted from here. I just am not seeing your point about Navy Seals. Maybe you can elaborate on it. Is there a size code for them? I have personally known some very big Navy Seals. I put myself through college with construction jobs and athletic scholarships. And later on owned a construction company, a landscaping business I started on the side. I agree, hard workers come in all shapes and sizes. I feel it is up to the individual to decide what type of worker they want to be. Same goes for athletes. Some have God given talent, and some work to improve, while some slide by because they can. I feel it is too early to judge any of the rookie quarterback's yet. There is no way to compare them straight across. They all have played their 1st game under different circumstances. I didn't like Allen getting prejudged , and don't feel it is fair to do it to any of them. It is way too early in the process to decide.

    Allen already a factor in QB race 😌

    Not going to get into semantics with you. You can flick that same logic on almost every poster on here and no one is 100% good. This is arguing just to argue. I would rather talk football.

    I don't put out anything that isn't true or can't be supported. So how does that make me different?

    You have been against Allen since day 1. You also feel threatened if someone knows more than you. At least I an not trying to hide my agenda. I know Allen''s strengths and weaknesses better than you do. And I watched the games live and on film. Allen is far from perfect, but he is better than people like you give him credit for. It is way too early to figure out if he should play ahead of the other two. I am expecting some days where he doesn't have it. And then all the naysayers will be giddy. But he will come back, that is what Josh Allen does. Get used to it. As far as your debates and analysis goes, it is mostly repetitive junk you guys beat to death. There are only so many things to go over, and then it should be put to rest. But not on here, it seems to just never die out. I try not to read that same stuff over and over. Just curious, so why would Peterman or McCarron hold up to it any better? I hope Allen gets coached up not to scramble too much. I don't want to see him get hurt. I will say Allen had an innate sense of knowing where the pressure was coming. I hope he still has it in the Pros because he will need it.
