My personal vow regarding Josh Allen: Who is with me

Clearly he wouldn't be my number one or even 20 choice but he is better than Peterman.  Man been in the league long enough, mediocre QB to be of value. but give me a better alternative.

 

No when i said psychologically frail  referring to if he gets all bent out os shape by being benched.

 

And

1) I agree, Allen isnt ready, stating the borederline obvi0ous, so be it. He is nowhere near a polished product.

2) No tnecesassarily, maybe they are just no trying to get Allen killed, let Anderson take the hits.

Allen can likely handle either scenario psychologically imho, whether he's benched or playing. The only reason I would bench him is to prevent injury, but our OL has been doing a decent job of protecting him on Sunday, and god forbid, as long as they stay consistent I'd prefer Allen starting the rest of the season. Regardless of his performance, experience is experience, just hope he's an experiential learner and not an observational learner in that regard. Starting Anderson for any other reason just frankly wouldn't make sense from what the FO has stated we are looking to accomplish.

 

That being said, absolutely better than Peterman. I just want them to get rid of Culley and bring in someone who can actually do the job here.

Maybe.... in addition to making this "pledge" people stop refuting and bumping these types of threads.  If one starves the beast.... it goes  away.

The worst thing they can do now is bench him for 48 yr old Derek Anderson...

I agree, I really don't want to watch Derek Anderson play. Allen is developing as a passer every week, I hope he stays healthy and keeps getting better each week.

JA needs to stop playing timid in the pocket and start slinging it like he can.  He's too worried about making the perfect read, perfect pass.. 

 

You watch, in about a week or two Chad Kelly will replace Case Keenum and he will not hold back.  I'd rather have a gunslinger than a guy that's trying to be mechanical and overthinking everything..

But please don’t take it to JeffIsMagic levels. PLEASE! I don’t care if you are 100% correct and the rest of the world is wrong....you CAN carry the Crusade too far!  

 

Opinions are fine, pretending they are facts is annoying. 

Lol very true I’m just saying the OP is saying he is gonna stop posting his knee jerk reactions I on the other hand don’t do that I am even keeled with Buffalo n josh Allen this year but I’m just telling him he shouldn’t not do what he has to to get through his season lol

This is what’s annoying. No one is rooting for him to fail.  How about people stop posting we aren’t gonna win the SB this year anyways so blah blah blah.

I agree that I don't want to make any judgement too early buttttt

 

The Bills drafted Josh Allen with the 7th overall pick who many considered the biggest project with all the right tools.

And for the year they surround their first QB taken this high in the history of the franchise with no WRs, a bad offensive line, no veteran QB to mentor him, and a QB coach who doesn't have a history with young QBs. LOL

Just wait a while.

is this legally binding?

 

 

i am with you though.  we all knew there was going to be a small group that makes the most noise when it comes to being upset about allen.  he's on the bills now, so i'm cheering for him, and will give him time to develop.  it may not work out, but since this is not the plan, i'm hoping for the best.

 

Nailed it.....Is this what the young people say?

Count me in too. We may know sooner though if he starts to dominate, but 1st year doesn't count, too many great QBs SUCKED their rookie years, the list is astronomical. I'd actually go as far to say that more good QBs have been bad year 1 than good.

If only I could get the broad two rows behind me at the NErF to vow to stop calling him “Joshy”.

He's not going to be benched....the only way Anderson plays is if Allen is injured.

I'm with you. He's 2-2 in games started FFS. Has he looked great no but he's learning every game. The Bills have played 5 teams that the experts predicted would be in the playoffs this year and now have 2 winnable games that could make them 4-3 for MNF and the Pats.  Nice post OP!

 

 

I'm with Mofo and Degenerative Mike..........except if we are going to keep an open mind we don't need to manufacture real-time excuse narratives like "he's learning every game" when we don't know if that's really the case.   Just gotta' be OK with the unknown this season.

Can anyone recall in recent memory a rookie QB that got benched and then came back and was good?

If Allen gets benched, I think we need to consider another QB next year.

Won't happen.   Whaley was all in on EJ Manuel.....both gone now.   Bean and McD are all in on Allen...if Allen doesn't make it, Bean and McD will be gone.  So, Allen will get all the days Bean and McD have to give him....maybe 3 more years.  Then, if things are still bad....adious Amigos

Imo baker Mayfield is a better qb at the moment, and the Browns only have 2 wins. I fully expected Allen to struggle this year. The big thing is can he get better this year and going into next

I want to and I think I will give him 2 years.  But as someone who I think was extremely flawed and picked by a regime that makes a lot of bad offensive decisions, it’s hard to blindly trust them.

 

i hate this feeling.  But as someone who supported EJ, JP, and Trent until the end and overlooked many warning signs, when is it enough time?

 

Why two years?

 

Thinking you have a QB to then pass on a better prospect, is way worse than admitting the mistake and taking another QB.

 

How many years can we go with saying we have a QB, when we really don't?

 

Allen right now is projecting to be one of the worst passing QBs to play the game, in the pass happy era.

Dear Social Media and message board watchers,

 

I as a Buffalo Bills fan will refrain from making a definitive conclusion as to Josh Allen and if he 'is the answer' at QB for the long term for the Buffalo Bills for the rest of the season. After reviewing mine and other opinions over the weeks, I realize that the knee jerk reactions are not needed during this time. I will allow time for Josh to develop. I will stay even keel if Allen has a great game or a bad game in 2018. I will tell myself over and over that 2019 will bring in an infusion of talent which can help the young signal caller. I will remind myself that quarterbacks can take different amounts of time to develop.

 

I sign off on this vow the rest of the year, for my betterment as a fan of this team. Who is with me?

 

Signed,

 

Like A Mofo

 

 

No, it is best to agonize about this play by play then game to game.  By default Bills fans are irrational so trying to be logical just will not work.

 

Signed with affection (possibly confused with irritation and frustration),

 

BuffaloBill

Agreed.  Everyone should have known this was going to be a frustrating year.  No point in getting too high or too low about his or the team's performance any given week.  We will know more by the end of the year, and there will hopefully be some entertaining football in the interim.

This is really what I dont understand

 

Did ppl really think that a raw rookie QB was going to overcome the lack of talent on this offense.....I mean....REALLY?
