Josh Allen's progress

It’s just slowing down the process and taking away the time he needs to analyze a defense, stand in the pocket and deliver the surgeon like throws that you need to win in this league at a Prime Time level.

 

he can keep on running.  He’s good at it.  But it’s just a bandage on the wound, it is slowing him down.

 

but if he wants to go platinum in this league and sit at the top dog table...he will use these four games to stand in the pocket and try some things.  Try to use his brain.  Chess match it up Mr. Allen.

 

 

 

I’d rather him try some throws on 3rd and middle yardage and punt

 

then have him scramble for the first down.

thats crazy  Let him use his gifts.  That same running ability helped him not take several sacks as well as opened up guys downfield.  The kid is big/strong/fast and elusive  Let him use it  Hopefully he needs to use it less as the line plays better and we acquire guys that can get open right away

There are no accuracy problems STOP!!!!!!! Look how much the elite QBs dump off to their RBs 125x a season a 1yd pass for 10yds. If Allen hits McCoy for a 1yd pass 9/10 he gets dropped for -1. Our OL and RBs are extremely bad. Only good guy between the two units is Dion Dawkins.

Kiko was the spy on Allen today and Allen just burned them on the ground. Allen played great for a rookie in his position with the talent he has around him. The good new is that Allen is still improving. He has a real high ceiling. Lets just enjoy the ride with him.

I'm still on the fence if Allen is the future of the franchise, but I absolutely believe he CAN be. It's going to take the front office to make it happen. He has the physical ability, but as we saw today Allen's best weapon is a wr3 on most teams. And confidence is a huge factor for a young QB. Does Allen have any confidence in any of his receivers will come up and make a play for him? Does he have confidence his o line will give him time to set his feet and scan the feild? Right now he has a defense that plays tough and keeps the score close, other than that the front office needs to surround him with weapons.

Only issue I have is none of these runs are designed.

 

They are not part of Dabols Offense.  So on these runs...The Bills are not executing the offfense game plan.

 

either Allen can’t see the field or is refusing to throw or other areas are failing.

 

every time he runs...the play has failed.  He’s had over 200 rushing yards in 2 weeks.  That’s ALOT of broken/failed plays.

What is the wobbly ball about?!?!  Many of his passes were wobbly today...

Yes, true.  I’m not an Allen hater, but too many balls came out as ducks.

 

i choose to believe that this is because the OL isn’t giving him adequate blocking and that the Receivers are not helping and that he is throwing on poor down and distances, but there are an alarming number of wounded ducks coming out of his hand.

He's a mixed bag period.  We'll be having the same discussions about him in 2020.

It seems to me that he doesn't set his feet a lot of the time. Sometimes he's under pressure, other times he is feeling the pressure when, by NFL standards, it isn't there. The throw to Clay was a great example. He made a great play to get away from the two Dolphin pass rushers and bought the time to set his feet and make a good throw. Instead he flicked it downfield on the run and missed by 10 yards.

Agreed, I see it the same way.

Watch Drew Brees on a play like that, see how he sets up and throws.  Biggest knock on Allen in the draft was his footwork, here we go...

Looked depleted in his post game pc. This dude is a gamer. I have no doubt he's gonna be great if he can continue to develop every week 

Honestly looking at his face it looked like he maybe have been crying in locker room, or fighting the tears hardcore. He looked dejected and flush. Not dejected like I’m clueless or I give up way. More of dejected because he left it all on the field but sill felt and wanted to do more. I respect this.

 

I am in love with his fire, competitiveness and his desire. I will fully admit I was a “wrong josh crowd.” I didn’t want ANOTHER project. I wanted the NFL ready qb. Out of the rookie QB’s I wanted Allen the least (besides Jackson). However now Allen is my favorite of all of them. Even Mayfield who I liked the most, I still like but I feel he is kind of “at his ceiling” already.

Needs to work on it. Drew Brees wasn't Drew Brees either his first season...

Why do 7 out of 10 posters here admit that Josh Allen has a accuracy problem but then turn around and say how great Josh Allen is?  I don't get it.

 

Accuracy isn't something that you teach.

 

:doh:

 

 

Wrong. Accuracy, at least from the pocket, is an absolutely trainable psycho motor skill. Do some research. Google it for crying out loud! This is one of the biggest myths about quarterbacks that accuracy, at least from the pocket, cannot be trained and improved.It most definitely can.

That backshoulder to Zay was perfect.  Right down to Zays timing.  Too bad he couldn't hold on.

Irrespective of the ups and downs, the most dynamic and best player on the field today was Allen.

its fools good.

dont fall for it.

 

he gets the BOTD because he is a Rookie.

 

but his true success won’t START until the running STOPS.

 

I agree, he should sit in the pocket and take the beating, he might even survive. Or throw picks because nobody’s open. Maybe we can punt our way back the the line of scrimmage after all the sacks. 

 

He’s got a LONG way to go, but today was very encouraging. Sketchy start, but he came around and put the offense on his shoulders. I don’t want him running TOO much, but we lose by 3+ TD’s today without his legs. At least he knows when to slide or go OB. It works for Russell Wilson. 

 

It’s a work in progress.

Thats not true empty back field qb draw is in his gameplan, the coach and oc has said so. Granted not all of them are qb draws, however if a lane is open and your wrs are locked up get yards and get down. It slows the pass rush and opens other players up.

He is good

The pass to Demarco for a thirty yard gain where Josh took some muster off of his fast ball and shown that he is capable of throwing with touch demonstrated to me that he is progressing as a passer as opposed to a thrower. He is going to be real good. What was also encouraging about this game is the play of Zay Jones. He certainly is playing up to his draft status. 

 

What this game also demonstrates is that the organization has to stress improving the OL and the receiver corp in the offseason. The player who needs to go is Benjamin. His indifferent play should not be tolerated.

For either team. The game was clearly in his hands.

they drafted him high because of his athletic ability, compare him to someone like elway, that seemed to work out okay

Lots of missed ipportunities by this team but Allen showed us a lot today.   If he can get his accuracy down he will be a real weapon.

The kid's got the heart of a lion. I loved it when the camera showed him over on the sidelines firing up the offense. With more reps, the kid's going to be fine.

Just stop.

 

The kid is the closest thing we have seen to John Elway since Elway was young.

 

His true success will include his running ability.

I heard the announcer compare him to Steve Young!  I like that comparison and hope that his passing continues to develop which we have definitely seen as of late!  Dude is flat out balling and running away from defenders!
