What you see from both on Sunday will probably not be indicative of the way they'll play 2 years from now. I think McB made the right call choosing Allen considering his size and arm strength in the Buffalo wind. Josh's mobility is a very pleasant surprise. They both are good character guys with great leadership qualities. Sam will be more accurate to start but I see him struggling years down the road. Josh will require reinforcements on the OL and WR/TE. If McB fail in finding this support system for Josh, than he's likely to fail also.....

As if he had the choice to draft Darnold as the J-E-T-S got him at #3. Oh well, I still think we got the better guy.

For right now, I’ll definitely say Allen. Two years from now my answer might be different.

I was honest and stayed with my preference of Darnold. Josh is making it look better every week, but time will tell. In a decade I bet we know for sure, but even then there may be arguments. That would probably be a good thing, as they’d both be IN the league.

Never wanted Darnold. He got rattled in the pocket in the Pac12. He is more polished than Allen but Allen has more upside.

Gee. I wonder how this will turn out on a Bills' board.  😁

 

Its a fair question... there's plenty of buyer's regret when it comes to QBs

Yeah sure. Right now it's 87-7 in favor of Allen. Shocked!! :rolleyes:

Allen for sure. I’m not just saying that because he’s a Bill either. If it was flipped, I’d still pick Allen.

WHO TF VOTED FOR DARNOLD

 

I admit it. Only because the sample size is so small, and I wanted Darnold as my first choice out of college (Baker was #2). Who can tell from what we’ve seen so far and the supporting casts? Don’t get me wrong, I’m LOVING watching Josh. I haven’t been this excited about the next game in many, many years!

Before draft, I wanted Darnold first and Allen second. Now I’ll choose Allen over Darnold. Still too early to predict long term outcomes though.

So far Darnold hasn't done anything to stand out.  Allen's arm strength and running ability give him a big edge.  Those are likely two areas Darnold will never catch him on.  Certainly throwing more completions/TD's could swing that the other way in the future, but for now all Allen.

How many times do we need this same pole on a bills board? What in the world makes you think its at all interesting? If you are being serious, ive got this paddle with a rubber ball attatched w/a string youd find 'interesting'. Thing will knock ur socks off! 

I really don't get this. Do you scan the discussion threads looking for an opportunity for a snarky insult?

 

It's a relevant discussion because they're playing each other on Sunday. It's a relevant discussion because they're playing in the same division. It's a relevant discussion because Darnold was rated so much higher during the draft. It's a relevant discussion because so many Bills fans would have preferred Darnold 13 weeks ago. 

 

But, if you don't like the discussion, why participate? Just to piss in someone else's punch bowl?

It's funny I had a read of the Jets page and it's the exact opposite.

The question was would you rather have Darnold or Allen and two second rounders. Apparently you couldn't give a couple of them enough second rounders to take Allen.

Just keep scrolling till you find a topic that you find interesting.

Interesting question.  Based on 12 weeks (or so) of games, if you were drafting today and had your pick of either Sam Darnold or Josh Allen, who do you draft?

Seriously 😳 

 You can’t change it.   Dreamer.  It is what it is. 

what is the purpose of the poll and question? 

Might as well ask if we would have been better drafting Riley Ferguson 🤪

I never wanted Darnold to begin with , 

B Mayfield was my 1st choice , Allen was my 2nd , if the draft was today knowing what we know now Allen would be my first choice

Nah brah, pissing in the punch bowl is watering it down such as this. There was litterally the same poll and thread after the jax game and numerous times before that. Dont be lazy and start a new thread bc you want the attention. Bump the last one.... bc really, on a Bills board , what do you expect?? Spoiler : a couple people who still dislike Allen, and everyone else picking Allen. I personally come here for good conversation, news, and information. This is just watering down intelligent talk.

 

I may be in the minority, but this is silly. Stuff like this is on facebook with someones aunt sally talking about how cute Josh's dimples are or someones sister suzy saying Darnolds better bc hes got a better butt. Then out of leftfield someone says they should trade Benjamin- totally unaware the deadline has passed, that hes no longer on the team, and more stupidly assuming someone would want him with that $$. This was, and sometimes still is, (thanks in large part to mr  cornerblitz26 and many other thoughtful contributors) a place to get away from that nonsense. A thread of this ilk for the umpteenth time moves the needle just a bit more towards the aforementioned junk. 

 

Its so bad, sometimes i listen to one bills live (like yesterday when some idiot calls and goes on about how barkley should still be playing or nownthey can finally bring back brandon reilly) and the thought pops into my head 'hmmm, i wonder what that guys handle is'. I just shake my head and wonder bc some of these posts are like that now. I dont even mean to be negative about it and of course i cld just go on my merry way...but gee golly its a tough thing to to when you have to wade through 3 nonsense topics to find one that hasnt already been discussed 3x already!

 

Sure its off topic to a degree - but you asked and this is simply a retread anyway. Im sorry you feel insulted, but im insulted my time was wasted by clicking on the topic to find something of interest... only to find this. It is what it is and like it or love it, now you know!

 

Edit* its only fitting the name Nick Foles appears somewhere in this thread, so here it is. Nick Foles.

I'd draft Darnold. 

 

Not much has changed over these 12 weeks and Darnold still looks like the better pocket passer. He has a better comp %, TD %, and more yards.

 

Did me and @Jimmy Spagnola just become best friends ?!

I am hoping so. On draft night, I really had no idea which, if any, of the 1st round QBs would eventually become franchise caliber QBs - and I still don't know. What I do know is this: I absolutely love the toughness, fearlessness, passion, drive and character of Allen. I remember, shortly after the draft, Beane saying, "This kid is Buffalo."  I couldn't agree more. I hope he reaches his potential and becomes a franchise QB, because, out of the five QBs taken in the first round, Allen has everything I have always wanted in a QB for our team. Here's hoping for a bright future.
