When Allen hurdled that defender, it reminded of a couple plays from the Bills past.  


The first memory that popped  up was Kelly's dive for the winning TD against Miami in 1989.  The net result of Allen's leap wasn't nearly as momentous but it galvanized the team in a similar way.  I loved hearing Allen's teammates talk excitedly about the play after the game. 

 

In an antithetical way, Allen's leap also brought up memories of Orton's hook slide short of the first down.  Allen is no Orton.

When that happened I fell in love with him and knew all his teammates and other Buffalo fans also fell in love. Hopefully he doesnt break our hearts

The whole organization was down following both the bad losses the previous two weeks, we needed a spark, that was a great spark from Allen.

Hope to never see it again. Learn to slide Kid. Thing that kills the goal of this season (Allen’s Growth) is a Jimmy G torn ACL. 

 

Also always get scared with the Horse Collar tackle and in back to back games Allen has taken one.

I hope to never see it again either, but, if he did slide, the Bills are punting.

Love his grit. I just hope he understands he got away with a couple. Jimmy G., E.J., Tyrod, they all got hurt trying to go the extra mile.  JoshDoIt_2_Small.thumb.jpg.a54671e5bf0e64a4cc4feac2583f7e2f.jpg

An inspiring play for sure. I just hope we don't see anymore of these daredevil plays from him. An injury would be horrible.

 

What is amazing to me, is that his leap was over a linebacker, not a cornerback or safety, but a linebacker!

I'd normally be on the side of you have to be careful as the QB, but the team needed that play from him.

Question,  has anyone ever seen an injury occur while jumping over a player in this manner? Lots of folks calling it foolish, but is it?

 

Does it fire up the team? absolutely IMO

 

Cam Newton has made a living with his aggresive style running and leaping ability making him the hardest QB in the league to defend IMO.

The TE from Raiders Miller that destroyed his knee and career.

Not looked at combine numbers but were there numbers in it to indicate this type of ability?

I was thinking the same thing.   I knew he was athletic like the TD run demonstrated, but jumping like that.  wow.

Zach Miller for the Bears you mean?

 

Can't find it is why i'm asking

 

Even so, how many career ending knee injuries occur with a players leg planted on the ground?

Yeah that miller. The one that leaped destroyed his knee, almost needed to amputate the leg. So yeah people have been injured doing that.

Same, he made a catch and came down awkwardly on his leg.

 

These guys are paid to play football. Play it to best of ability. He could get injured dropping back to throw a pass. Should we say oh no don't drop back and throw a pass, its too risky? Fate is in the hands of the football gods. If you are going to get injured, get hurt making a play(not slipping on a mat)...
