Cole Beasley with the line of the day

Thought it was a game of 2 halves. Did not think he played well at all in the first half. Thought he was excellent 2nd half. I still think the Giants game is the closest we have got to a 4 Quarter performance from him. But when he is good he is like top 10 NFL Quarterback good. And it just makes him to confusing to work out!

The problem with him is consistency.

 

Consistency is supposed to be the mark of the professional.

 

His ceiling will always be too low if he can't be relied on to deliver 4 quarters of quality football, b/c eventually our opponent will have a QB who can.

Allen went from relying too much on the deep stuff last year to not being able to throw it deep at all. So weird.

Honestly the WR should just run a 50 yard crossing route and he should drill it in there.... I’m not joking either

Maybe he needs to get back to the crap mechanics so he's not throwing it as far?

I think his issue with the short range stuff was not knowing how to take enough off the ball and footwork. He has improved the footwork and touch but now he seems to need to recalibrate his touch on the longer passes. I think he figures it out. 

Right here.

Allen's deep throws are like unguided missiles.  One has no idea where exactly they'll land.

V-2's!

It looks, to me, that he has changed his throw.  Now he puts it up higher.  I assume to give the WR time to see it and run under it.  

Have you seen his deep misses in person?  Because I have, and my impression is the opposite, he's not putting enough air under his deep throws.

He needs some shopping cart training. Have a guy push a shopping cart while running and have JA put in the basket. Keep doing it until he gets it in the basket most of the time.

Go route has touch to it. Cross can be a hard dart into tight window. Diff throw

 

This is not really true...

 

Aaron Rodgers, who is the best deep ball thrower in the NFL, tries to throw it the same distance every time.  He focuses on mechanics and side.  The rest is all timing.

Looking back over the Bills history it's pretty amazing aside from the season John Brown is currently having, Cole's season projections have him at the most receptions for a Bills wideout since 2012.    He gets some flack on the board but I think he has been a tremendous add to the team.

Week 17 vs the fish was his best game hands down.

At least that's not a problem with your posts. You repeat this over and over again.

...just needs to reduce the "black powder" a bit from the cannon for the long ball.......sees an opening and his adrenaline goes into "over drive"........it will com with maturation as has his shorter game....quite an improvement to date IMO.....

Negative.  For the long term success of a QB it’s much more important to be  able to “hit the bunnies” for long term success.

They’re focused on that stuff in their limited practice reps is all.  Once they’re comfortable with the timing on the shorter stuff they’ll give it more reps and it’ll be fine.

Allen mentioned in his press availability this week that he thought the ball for Andre had a shot when he let it go but that the wind took it.  I imagine the wind in New Era takes some practice to adjust

I’ve seen both.  I think the bottom line is that after he changed his mechanics and got new WR, he needs practice in different conditions to dial it in, and I don’t think it’s a focus getting much reps in practice from Daboll right now.  He and Daboll just seem completely non-stressed about it right now so one assumes they have a plan.

OMG that would be too funny!  Install a little hidden laser inside Allen’s helmet that could key in like the Bionic Man - anyone else remember that show?

I would love it! Just for awhile like laser training wheels until he homes in. Lol! Problem is, It would make me feel dirty...kind of like Belicheck! lol!

I think the idea is hysterically funny, but the truth is, when I shoot with a laser sight By Damn am I ever accurate - but it seems to impair, not help, my accuracy when I try to do without it.  I don’t think it’s good “training wheels”.  Sorry for the digression into firearms though.  

 

If Daboll and Allen are so durn relaxed about it, I ‘spec they either have a plan, or they know something we don’t.

Good point. Whatever it is and if it...it is time to flash it soon. I love this defense, but I hope they can hold until the offense catches up. The true test of this team is in the coming weeks.
