  1. 1. Is Josh improving as a passer?

    • Yes
      491
    • No

His passing yards have decreased in every single game this year versus his previous game with only one exception (and that exception is because his numbers against the Patriots were exceptionally low).  Allen is an unusual case in that the eye test tells you that he should be good, but the numbers never support that.  This was the case for him in Junior college, at Wyoming, and still is in Buffalo.  He's like the anti Kirk Cousins.

7 TDs & only 1 INT, in his last 4 games. 6 of the 7 TDs were in the redzone & 5 were to WRs(All weak points last year). Yeah he's improving. 

 

For comparison...Some are treating Lamar like he's God, he runs a lot I get it, but in his last 4 games he had games of 161 yards, 236 yards, 143 yards & 163 yards with only 2 TDs & 3 INTs. Matter of fact take the Miami game out and he has only 7 TDs & 5 INTs in his other 7 games.

Was Nick Wojton dropped on his head as an infant? That is perhaps the most idiotic point ever made about QB stats. 

 

Did he actually watch the Miami/Jets game? Darnold couldn't even remember his own snap count on his own 1 yard line ;) 

 

That redzone pass/int with the ball sideways in his hand was another beauty. ;)

Yes and I think he is only scratching the surface of his potential! So glad we have him!!

Thanks for that info! Not always as things seem!

No way he watched either the Jets or Bills games. He looked at the stat lines after the games and deduced his nonsense.

I wouldn't confuse decreased pass attempts because of the proper game planning dictated by weather conditions and the opposition with a decline in Josh Allens development. The Buffalo Bills are built to weather the storm.

Pretty hard to throw into or even with a 30mph wind.

It blatantly clear that Allen has improved as a passer.  In each successive game he's getting closer to jumping that hump. 

 

More often than not, his eyes are on the right player but he still hesitates a split second before throwing it or pulling the ball down to run.   I'm guessing that he still doesn't trust those kinds of throws because they're not instinctive to him yet.   It's that hesitation that's holding him back right now.

Passing yardage is always at the top of the list. Throw for 300 or you suck. 

 

Here's the thing though, there will come a time say against the Chiefs for instance that the 300 yard game may become necessary. Mahomes and company comes at you fast a furious. Fall to far behind and game over. 

 

Is Allen improving? Yes, most fans agree. With that being said Josh Allen still has a long way to go to take down the A Rodgers or Mahomes of the NFL IMO.

Easy question.  Yes he has improved as a passer.  Just take a look at his short throws which plagued him in college.

 

The biggest question is “has he improved enough?”

i think you're right with the 300 benchmark.  and i also think you're right about allen at this point.  he's not going to out gun the big boys at this point in time. we knew he was a project, and as long as there's continued improvement, they should stick with him.

He's improved in short yardage passes but regressed in deep passes. 

 

He's improved over a few games in interceptions, but has fumbled it in multiple games. 

 

He's being hidden by this coaching staff over the last few weeks and it obvious to anyone who's paying attention. 

 

They let Allen rip it early on in year and it was disasterous.   The ints, the fumbles, the wreckless runs, the injury, etc.   So they pulled in the reins.  That's the reason his passing has dropped.  He was putting the team in too many holes with bad throws. 

 

So, he's improved in some areas, and regressed in others.   Its a push imo.

So should we take out Allen’s 202 and 2 tds against Miami? Stuff like this makes zero sense.

 

and I do feel like his short game has improved.  He’s still not good enough as a passer to be a franchise guy and I would love to see more indications that he is the type of qb that elevates his teammates.  But there has been subtle improvements.

He's got that special quality: he's very coachable and he has a high ceiling.

 

Not all players are coachable and many are at their ceiling soon after being drafted.

i don't think this is as extreme as you're making it out to be.  that being said, i don't know what the coaches plan for josh is.  are they bringing him along slowly?  is this just the offense they intend to run regardless of the qb?  i'm not sure what you're talking about having allen "let it rip" and finding out it was a disaster.  can you elaborate?

Creating the poll in such simple terms is not helpful or meaningful.

 

Is he improving, at all?  Yes.  In small, incremental ways.

 

Is it enough?  No, not close.

Why does it not make sense? Take a look at his games this year, which one doesn't belong? It's an outlier of all his other games. If the Miami team from the first couple of weeks played the Miami team from the last couple of weeks who would win and what would the score be? The team from the first few weeks would get their butts handed to them, there was absolutely NO effort from them.
