Shock horror : The draft network don't like Allen. You mean the guys who were trashing Josh Allen more than anyone else before the draft, don't like him after. Wow.

To be fair, he has done very little to change anyone's mind.

good analysis of this play (and Allen’s struggle reading a defense) by Erik Turner (Cover 1). 

 

LOL!  What does the analyst consider a "manageable" 3rd down?  Allen was looking to get more than just 5 yards by hitting Clay on that 2nd and 23 play.  Hitting him means 3rd and 18 which is far from manageable.

Taking an in-depth look at Josh Allen's rookie season thus far with @TheJoeMarino who joins Schopp & the Bulldog right now on the AT&T Hotline!

 

Marino - Just seems like his draft stock ascended, but we didn't see the ascension on the field. Experts just couldn't shake the game tape. All along we've been trying to tell people, this is a great physical talent at QB that needs a ton of work.

 

Marino - What kinda sucks for Josh Allen is his supporting cast is very underwhelming. The receiving core is a receiving core that no other team in the NFL would trade for.

 

Marino - You can't go back to Peterman. The best thing for Allen is to play and get those reps. Be exposed to so many different things.

 

Marino - Josh Allen deserves the opportunity to grow and develop, but he is behind the other rookies. Not worried about his mental toughness through that. He's ignored a lot of criticism in the last year.

 

Marino on Allen - I've focused in on him all year. This is bigger than just not having great players around him. There were reads that were simple and easy, and Josh wouldn't pull the trigger. You would expect an NFL QB to execute those.

 

Marino - Allen is limited by his supporting cast, but he is limiting them in turn.

 

Marino - Sean McDermott is the right coach for this team in this scenario. The enviroment & culture is really good. His buzz words & phrases really matter in building a football team.

 

Marino - His body language is really good. You can tell when he takes off with the football he's ready to compete. Not worried about that part of Allen.

 

Marino - Once you put the top rookie in, they're in. Once Kyle Orton came in, that was the end of EJ Manuel... This isn't a situation where the Bills should try to find a different plan at QB on the short term.

 

Marino on Allen's mechanics - A lot of over-striding with his feet. That's been a problem for his entire career. It really messes up his driving off his back foot and being consistent with his release point.

 

Marino - Baker Mayfield has been the cream of the crop. He's got that it factor on 3rd downs when he's under pressure. He's exactly what most thought he'd be based on his Oklahoma tape.

 

Marino - Thought Josh Rosen's debut was special. Hitting tight window throws with confidence.

 

Marino - Allen has helped find a way to win two football games. Especially taking off and running, but he'll have to start making big plays with his arm for that impact to be consistent.

 

Marino on Allen - He's never been a great thrower on the run. You'd think it could be a strength of his game, but he still needs to prove that.

 

Marino on the 2019 QB class - Really like Justin Herbert from Oregon. A lot of buzz though that he won't come out. Heard he's really committed to Oregon. He'd be the top QB.

 

Marino on Tyree Jackson - Don't want to bring Josh Allen into this again, but you see that. Freak athletic abilities, but you want to see more on the tape.

So.....a raw qb is raw.....and getting no help from his team.

 

Is this the short version?

There are quotes I included in his very fair albeit early snapshot assessment.

Hey, Allen did have that beauty of a sideline pass to Robert Foster which went right through Fosters arms!  Argh!  That was gonna be his highlight completion up to this point. His other deep throws have shown zero touch or accuracy.

There are literally 2 other TD passes (both to KB) which should have been touchdowns that KB botched

I would give him 1 more half (against Houston) to show he can throw 2 or 3 passes in a row near a WR and if he can’t, I’m sitting him down. Allen is not ready. I like him, he’s exciting, he’s a guy I’m rooting for....He’s been terrible. No two ways about it. If Allen doesn’t make better throws in the first half against Houston I would play Anderson for the rest of the year. I never really wanted Allen to play this year, I think he needs time ...Play better or sit. I don’t subscribe to the not being able to pull him now. There are no rules. If he can’t handle it, you sit him. It’s really that simple. He has plenty of time to get it right.

A couple of his deep throws have been throw-aways IMO.  There was a deep pass to the corner of the endzone on a flea-flicker where Benjamin was double covered and Zay pretty tight.  I'm not sure if it was supposed to be a deep corner to Benj but silly if so - he can't run that far, that fast.  In any event, he wasn't exactly lighting his afterburners streaking down the field.

Please don't sit by the phone waiting for Beane and Kim Pegula calling you to offer the HC gig

Nah. He’s either got to learn to swim now, or drown.  I can’t think of one recent example of a top 10. QB pick, that once starting was then benched...only then to come back and have a great career.  Once they start, ya gotta give them a couple seasons before pulling the plug.  Somehow this QB has led the team to two wins. Not sure how but it can’t be overlooked

Nah. Pretty much nothing about this is measureable. You can come up with one number but there are hundreds that factor in. It's all opinion. Educated opinion but opinion.

 

Peterman might still be very successful. The odds dipped after that recent game but it's not like Allen passed significantly better than Peterman did under the same circumstances. What Allen did in that game was run better.

In light of yesterday's developments,

MEASURABLE
