These are just a handful of posts, though many more echo these sentiments.

At least we know the problems are everything but Allen. I mean, even though Allen has shown all year he plays his absolute best when he stays in the pocket and has all day to throw....Conversely, he has shown he is not reliable when escaping the pocket and slinging it. 

People think because on an extremely rare occasion he escapes a sack & makes a great play almost no other QB could make that THIS is who Josh Allen is, while conveniently ignoring the many, many, MANY more plays he tried the same things with horrid results...Whether it be fumbles (currently at 11!), taking a bad sack (often knocking us out of FG range), throwing a pick, intentional grounding, sailing it way over someone's head, getting the ball batted down, taking a big hit instead of throwing it out of bounds, forcing it into double or triple coverage & being lucky it wasn't picked off, etc.

But yes, just "let Josh be Josh"... 

 

People get mocked if they bring up his inability to throw for 300+ yards..."Stats don't win games!" they say. Too bad stats are a byproduct of successful QB play, and even average QB's who are asked to throw 41 times in a game luck into 300 yard games out of sheer volume passing....but not Allen!

 

So unless people are advocating Allen just go back to playing a glorified RB, letting him run around & loft up passes is the WORST thing you can ask of him.

Allen in the 3rd quarter - 6/11 for 56 yards, 0 TD's, 1 sack, 1 rush for 2 yards. Total of 3 drives leading to 3 punts. Defense held the Browns to 3 points & scored 2 of their own with a Safety. 

Know what we did after that Safety? First play, false start. Ok, so now we're at 1st & 15. Singletary run, but wait, holding call... minus 10 yards, so now 1st & 25. We run with Singletary again, 6 yards, then pass to Knox getting a lot of those yards back. Now it's 3rd & 3, Allen makes the decision to throw deep to Beasley who's got multiple Browns defenders all over him and sails it...

But I'm sure it's Daboll's fault for not forcefeeding Singletary staring down 1st & 25, and Daboll's fault for throwing an awful deep pass to a covered WR.

And on all those failed 4th down plays? Allen throwing bad passes again cost us. But sure, it was Daboll's fault.

Allen lacks timing and touch. Pretend Mayfield isn't a special talent all you want, but he showed everyone how great he is with timing passes, and also had many perfectly placed passes dropped right where only the receiver could catch it, often times even when that WR was well covered.

Anyway, the mental gymnastics will continue all season as the defense force comes out & blames everything & everyone but Allen. If any player makes a mistake, or a single play call isn't perfect, THOSE are the reasons we struggle. If Allen makes many mistakes, can't hit a deep pass to save his life, makes bad reads, can't hit wide open passes and disappears for long stretches of the game, it's just a natural part of his development... All we need are 3 first team All-Pro WR's, a star TE, the best O-line in football and to feed Singletary the ball every play regardless of context, and call the perfect game.......only THEN can we fairly evaluate Allen.

You know....most of the time I really think your just full of *****.....but I have to give credit on the work to create this.

 

NOBODY is at fault.....they just lost because they didnt play well enough on both sides of the ball.   Its a team game.

 

And

 

As far as I know there is another game next Sunday.

You know, since we have all these threads, it seems rather LAMP-Y to have a thread rehashing them.

Your thesis is false - a lot of people are blaming Allen, you just didn't bother to grab those threads or summarize them because it didn't fit your story.

 

Since you put a lot of work into it, let's leave it - but I really think we don't need one more active "let's blame Allen" thread, even one with the novelty of summarizing most of  the other "blame factors" first
