Can the Detractors Now Admit Allen's Growth?

Recommended Posts

Just now, H2o said:

Against a team he was supposed to put up good numbers against, Allen comes through.

 

Stat line: 21-33 for 256 yards and 3 TD'S

                 7 carries for 56 yards and 1 TD

                 7.8 yards per att and 117.7 rtg

 

He was calm in the pocket, went to his 2nd and 3rd read, put a lot of passes right on the money so the WR could get YAC, beat the blitz on a number of occasions, used his legs when the opportunity presented itself, and he didn't throw an INT for the 5th straight game. The young man is growing as a QB and that should be evident to all. :thumbsup:

 

You'd think so.

A number of folks will tacitly admit it by being scarce this week. 

 

Thank God.

Wait 1 game? I want consistency... EVERYONE wants consistency. ***** people put up these attack threads over 1 game, its not right.

You’ll never get it here my friend. While there are many, like me that agree with you, some here like being party poopers too much.

 

But you know what’s up, Allen has done a good job in year 2. That’s all that matters.

I mean no one is calling for him to be benched, but many are waiting for that signature game. This isn't it.

 

Beat Denver and then go play well on the road vs Dallas.

He's better than I thought he'd be at this point when we drafted him.  He was such a raw prospect that I've been pleasantly surprised with his slow but steady growth.  Throwing it away when it's not there and his accuracy on short to intermediate throws is very encouraging.

Growth and development is slow for QB's. He is just playing better and better and proving he can be that guy.  There will be ups and downs with the rest of this year and next. 

 

He's doing a great job, I am so encouraged with what I'm seeing.

 

When was the last time we could feel fine with 2nd and 20? We can convert just about any long down scenario.  I think that alone should tell the haters/doubters a ton.

309 yards 4 tds and a W but "this isn't it". HIs line looks like a Mahomes game but apparently we need that 500 yard game to really be sure.

No. Next question. I love this feature of TBD where I get to answer yes and no questions posed in thread titles. Keep em coming.

Yeah, you must not have been on the board this past week. There were numerous people calling for his head and starting threads about which QB we should go after in the offseason. :thumbsup:

I like Allen and I'm pretty optimistic that we got our guy.  That said, nobody is going to change their mind over a big game against a bottom-feeder.  He'll have plenty of opportunities over the next six* weeks to show how far he's come.

 

* Really ten weeks of course.

Yes I agree with everything you've said. He checked into a good run that beat the Blitz and showed a vet throw to make an easier field goal on a field goal drive. Probably his best game as a Bill. 

 

There are things to consider aswell. It was the Dolphins of which Allen has always played well and there were a couple of quick 3 and outs with inaccurate passes that we tend to see more of on some days. This was a good day in the main! . Lets keep it balanced.

Today was probably his best game. 

 

I don't think anyone sensible would dispute there has been progress from last year. That said, in the same way as nobody was asking to bench him last week nobody should be crowning him this week. 

 

This was a very encouraging performance now we need to see that consistency game to game.

I mean sure, the "detractors" can admit when he has a good game. I see no reason why not.

 

Can you admit when he has a bad one? Or is "detractor" just another term for someone who doesn't pretend they don't see the bad games/throws?

He had a very good game today.  Consistent, no big mistakes.  Against a team where you would expect (and need) that kind of performance.  The difficult part of the schedule is coming up.  If he has this kind of performance against the ravens and cowgirls and basically the remaining schedule, then there should be no more detractors.
