Josh Allen reminds me of Ken Stabler

Interesting comp. A nice one that doesn't come up a lot in QB comps. I can see some Stabler in him for sure.

 

Does no one see Brett Favre in him? That's been my comp to the tee. I'd have thought it would come up more often. Favre even ran those north south scrambles like Josh does when they'd choose to take off. Favre not as often or as fast, but he ran vertically for solid gains every few games. He definitely dropped the scrambling altogether after like 5 years as a young buck. But his instincts, catching the secondary cheating on an unconventional read with his arm power, leadership, confidence, occasional recklessness, willingness to take off when the defense is off guard, and general unpredictability (in a positive way) in his play all give me Favre vibes.

 

And I strongly disagree with the Steve Young comparisons.. I see nothing to that comp other than running quarterbacks. Completely different style of scrambling too IMO. Elway I can understand.

You saying Josh Allen doesn't get any action??

 

Favre all the way, posted it a few times

Watched some highlights of Ken Stabler. Josh Allen reminds me of him. He was scrappy, took the hits, ran when needed (when he was younger), and was clutch. Think Josh has a stronger arm than Stabler did. Hope Josh will get us a super bowl win like “the snake” did for the raiders. Does he remind you of Stabler or someone else? 

 

People said the same thing when the Bills drafted JP Losman. They said he was the next Snake. Let's not get too optimistic yet.

I'd go just a little deeper into Raider history and think about Daryle "Mad Bomber" Lamonica as a Josh Allen prototype.  

 

Lamonica had a stronger arm than Stabler - more like Josh.  And liked to throw deep - hence the nickname.  

 

The trade of Lamonica is one of the worst decisions the Bills ever made, and to be sure it turned a proud championship franchise into an absolute mess.

 

Drafting Josh Allen has the potential to do this for us in the opposite direction. Now I have to go and rewatch Lamonica highlights! You are spot on with this post.

Exactly.  Elway or Steve McNair.

He reminds me more of that one guy who was a carpenter and then went on to lead people across Egypt, you know...

Hard to know who he will look like when he develops.

 

And so far he reminds me of a rookie with a terrific running skill set, a howitzer and accuracy problems.

Lots of potential

 

Stabler would honestly be one of the least likely QBs to compare to.....  

 

lets get to Week One kickoff please....

Stabler was so much fun to watch as a Raider. Josh is in no way reminiscent of Snake. 

I wish yall’d just stop trying to make comparisons. It’s an effort in futility. We only have a small sample size of Allen as an NFL signal caller. What we Have seen is phenomenal -off the charts -incomparable.

 

Just sit back and hopefully enjoy the ride.

I can’t think of 2 QBs less similar than Allen and Stabler

Good comparison for Allen’s coolness.   I really like the way Allen stays patient where the offense is not ready for the opponents game plan in the first half. He doesn’t get rattled no matter how bad things look.  He stays cool just like snake so he can keep processing information.

I doubt Allen could keep up with Stabler after dark.

As many of you have, I have seen many QB’s play at Rich, Ralph, New Era- Elway, Marino, George, Culpepper, Favre, Young, Montana, Brady etc etc...in my assessment using the naked eye, and a few beers in me, I think Josh Allen may have the strongest arm I have ever seen. No, I am not in love with him but I have seen enough to know he has the potential to be great. He has to pull it all together and make the leap in year 2. Hopefully, we got our guy!

I see a more talented/less accurate(TO THIS POINT) version of Phillip Rivers.

Moses is the fella that led folks out of Egypt.

Favre, Elway, and LSHMEAB's variation on Rivers are good comps.

Josh Allen.

I was thinking the same thing. The great thing about Josh is he has his own style. Joe Montana and Peyton Manning didn't really fit a predecessor style. They just were who they were.   Not saying Josh will ever be that good though.

...to a certain extent, perhaps......BUT.....Favre could throw 5 picks in a game and get a pass as a gambling "gunslinger"......Josh throws 5 picks and TBD goes into irreversible meltdown....need to be honest here IMO.....
