John Clayton: Best Scenario - Josh Allen Starts in December

Recommended Posts

05-25 John Clayton on Schopp and Bulldog

 

http://www.wgr550.com/media/podcast/schopp-and-bulldog

 

So I guess John Clayton is coming to Buffalo for a Fatasy Football convention this summer. He was on Schopp and Bulldog to promote it a bit but did talk some Bills.

 

Of course, they asked when the Bills should play Allen.  John said they should follow KC’s lead and start him in December like Mahomes did - when he played a meaningless game in Week 17.  Surprisingly he was down on Chicago starting Trubisky in Week 5 and felt it was too early.  

 

This comment kind of made me scratch my head because many others have said you need to get him on the field sooner.  Obviously not the first week but at some point before Week 17.  The other difference is that the Bills might not have a QB on the roster that can perform like an Alex Smith who had one of his best seasons statiscally  in 2017.  So the gab between McCarron and Allen might not be as large.  

 

Im going to guess that Allen starts in Week 10 Of the season which would be November.  Still I think Clayton is off on this one

Clayton is off on a lot of things. I don’t find much of what he says particularly insightful.

Anyone making a hindsight assessment does so to appear knowledgeable.

Hindsight observations are the easiest ones to make one look knowledgeable 

Pretty unusual for the second string guy to take over the starting spot. Usually happens only when there's an injury, the games are meaningless or the strarter is in a bad slump AND the playoffs are on the line.  

 

It ordinarily doesn't happen just because someone decides it's a good time to start the rookie.

John Clayton knows less about the Bills then 90% of this board. I never understood why a local station, has a national guy come on to speak about the Bills? He knows nothing about the Bills. Why would any of us care what his opinion of them is?

Best scenario for who?  That's"worst case" scenario. Everybody is writing off this year as a building year with no shot at postseason play. KC had a competent playoff caliber QB above Mahomes, we have McCarron. If AJ plays well you ride with him and let Josh develop. If Josh wins the starting gig outright then cross your fingers.

John Clayton is, perhaps, the most knowledgeable analyst I ever heard. He has his ear to all insider info and doesn’t mints words. I would head his advice.

Being knowledgeable and intelligent are different no?

A lot of his specific takes on the Bills are straight up wrong, where he is obviously looking in from the outside.

It’s not a complicated answer at all. You play a guy when he is ready. Some guys are ready week 1, some need a year. There is no right answer.

It is amazing that his opinion is considered at all. Can't stand him.

I believe his only credential is that he was chased home by a football player when he was in school.

Irrelevant analyst speaking on the Irrelevant and Mouth radio show? How could anything that anyone of them say mean anything?

Best case scenario Allen beats out McCarron & Peterman in the preseason.

Best case scenario is any of them becoming a franchise QB for the Bills. Although it's most likely Allen because he's the only one that hasn't failed a shot because he hasn't had a shot yet.

Unless you are Buffalo Bills.

Sounds like he’s setting himself up for another season to make an appearance on the Stoop and Lapdog show.

 

I hate to poke fun at the radio guys because their job can’t be easy, but after listening to them this past week after the NFL’s Anthem decision, I seriously believe Stoop is a radical leftist and Lapdog is a f’ing moron with no backbone.

If he wins the job against a 5 year NFL vet, that means he's ready. It makes no sense to start McCarron if Allen out plays him.

Clayton's best work is his ESPN commercial.

 

It's a steep drop after that.

My best case scenario is that we keep all 3 qbs

 

......they all play outstanding

 

.....we keep Josh Allen on the bench for a year and play AJM

 

.....we trade AJM for a 1st round pick

 

(I know its not happening but)
