  1. Offset language, performance bonuses, etc, all a big part of it. He should be asking for no offset, bonus for games played, ProBowl, playoffs etc. I’m sure his agent is holding their feet to the fire and they don’t like it.
  2. I like the comparison, not sure it’s a perfect one, but if Josh peaks in about 3 years while performing at great levels on the way there, I’m good w it.
  3. Seems like his best bet is to have migraines all camp long and then pull a hammy the week before the season, collect his check and screw the pack all at the same time.
  4. I can respect that opinion, but in the eyes of the rest of the world, he’s not in the conversation as the best ever. Stats do play a part in it and while I agree with you, I think he was a better back than Emmitt personally, you can’t validate the “what if’s”, so he will not be given that credit. with respect to Barry Sanders, it’s not uncommon at all for the senior player to hold back a younger player, so as fun if a fact as it may be that Thurman was the starter, it’s arbitrary.
  5. I don’t think it’s even a question, he’s the best player the Bills have ever had. He is one of, if not, the best ever at his position. The only other possible guy you could mention being in that scenario is OJ. Thurman, while great, not one of the absolute best ever. Reed, Kelly, Lofton, all great, but no where near the best ever. Allen has the talent to put himself in that conversation with another decade of success like last year, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
  6. Most likely, but it’s a hole to fill and one weak area for this team is STILL LB depth, the coaches must have a much higher opinion of the guys on the roster than I do, because they have flat out ignored it for 2 years straight.
  7. Dead on, he’s been an average starter with some athletic flashes. You don’t spend 20M in cap space on that. If he turns into the player the commentators make him sound like, great, pay him. If he is what he is, let someone else pay him. Remember Poz? Same type of polarizing player, I couldn’t have been happier that somebody else jumped on that grenade of a contract. People get attached to draft picks, it should be about performance. Our best LBs in years have been TKO and Fletcher, both signings, not picks.
  8. As of this minute? No. That said, they have him getting paid a high dollar contract already and could use that money to replace him with somebody who would not be a drop off.
  9. I said it earlier, Maholmes is my answer to, 1 game to win, best for this season and best for the future, so I’d take Maholmes.. With what the Bucs did to Maholmes, nobody was going to win in that situation. All that said Brady has won on the biggest stage many many times, Allen has not, so if I am in a “must win” game, I’d feel better rolling the Goat out there and taking my chances over somebody who hasn’t been there and done that.
  10. I think you have to take it in context, part of being the best QB is your situation. Brady is a straight winner, his team is built around him and he kills it. I think Allen is the better player all around right now, BUT if you have to win one game, Brady in a team like he has is scary as hell. Allen is great, but is not a truly proven winner. That’s not saying he can’t win or isn’t a winner, but he hasn’t won anything yet. Brady has rings..
  11. I mean your criteria opens up a lot of possibilities, but I’d take Maholmes for 1 game, 2021 and for the future, so he’s the clear #1. I’d then take Brady for one game, for 2021 I’d be happy with Allen, Watson, Wilson, Rodgers and for the Future I’d take Allen because of age and attitude. I think there’s a solid argument that Watson is a better QB and the age is negligible, but Allen isn’t the Diva. So no matter how you shape it, for me, Allen is in the top 5, hard to see him much lower than that for any of the categories in your criteria.
  12. I don’t know, I think he needs to raise his back elbow up on the drop, get over the ball more, those balls are high and late, it will never work in the NFL, but we all knew he could never be accurate.
  13. Has to be somebody that’s looking at longer term production. I could see the argument that one year should not vault you to elite status. I mean, in all honesty, if you look around the league, there could be arguments, based on long(er) term success for: Maholmes Rodgers Wilson Watson Brady Jackson 🤣🤮 Ryan Dak Baker Cousins and I’m sure Tannehill is mindlessly thrown in for some people. they all have a longer resume than Allen in terms of “success”. I don’t agree with it, but I can see where the argument comes from.
