That 4th and 1 conversion sums up everything about JA.  I love it, real football. 

 

Yep.  That's a crusher for the defense and it throws down a marker for the rest of the Buffalo Bills.  It's Josh Allen stepping up and showing the rest of the team that he will never quit and he will do whatever it takes to win.  He's a leader.

 

After twenty years of wandering in the desert, we finally have our franchise QB.

There has been zero Josh Allen negativity on this board today. This post is a bad fake news flex.

I haven't seen anyone be negative about him today, maybe I missed it 

Of course there is no criticism today, he played to your expectations and played like all of us that watched him for 3 years at Wyoming played. Given the stat that the last QB to win this many games at this point in the season was forever ago, I would think that the trolls and haters would be long gone by now.....

"They" said he could not win the big games

"They" might be wrong!

I'm perplexed by the negativity directed at Josh Allen by some so-called Buffalo fans.  What don't you like about being 9-3?  Back when he was drafted, several members of Poke Nation, me included, came on here to assure you that you were getting a guy that would be totally dedicated to the team, the city, and it's fans.  Stats, schmatz.  He's the face of the franchise and a winner.  What more do you need?

 

 

It's because a certain segment of Buffalo sports fans like being miserable and always want to say they told us so.

I am coming around to thinking that 300+ yards metric is like shots on goal in hockey.

 

Unless everything is going in and you're killing it... 300 yards is like peppering the goalie with bad shots... Too many shots/attempts, when you should be passing the puck off. Same in football. +300 is unbalanced attack, unless everything is going in... BUT, BY then a lead is bought and you should be running time off clock.

 

How many big games did Marino have but was grossly inefficient and couldn't win big game.  Hate to quote Tommy HomoBoy...But he's right: "What you hope all drives end with is a score or a punt.  That's it. Then you'll be alright."

all those years of futility broke a lot of people  Easier to wait for the inevitable collapse because it always came  Much more enjoyable to just be in the moment  I'm savoring each game

Using the term fake news is a bad flex. I love how people question nothing and start using terms programmed directly into their heads. Figure out when the term fake news started and what it coincided with and one day you might be a little less blind.

It seems as if Daboll moving upstairs has helped this offense quite a bit.

It has to be deeper than that though, right?

It’s a conspiracy by the Deep State Poke Fans!

The majority of us love him, and did so quickly after the draft, and even before his first preseason game.

 

He is clearly athletic, smart, centered, and motivated to succeed. The talk about stats ignored the most important one which is W-L in the lineup vs out of the lineup. Even as a rough prospect at Wyoming he was a winner. Even his interceptions were mainly taking risks correctly when his team was losing.

 

The disappointed are always the most vocal. I wouldn't worry about it.

Truth.

 

For some I think the negativity is just where they feel most comfortable - they kind of have that vulture vibe. For others they cant bring themselves to dare hope, to feel good after a win because it will mean a longer fall the next time the team stumbles. For those I would say that life is too damn short to ignore celebrating the wins just so you can keep sandbagging your fragile feelings against the next loss. That truth can apply to more than the game of football.

 

Live it up Bills fans - your Bills are 9-3 winners, and they did it on a national stage. It is ok to feel very good about your team - you deserve it.

I've been on board since the draft. The problem with most bills fans is we have been so bad for so long they dont want to be let down again so they are afraid to get attached and are looking at all the bad so they can feel better about themselves.

 

The only problem is they are going to have to get on board because its only getting better!

9-3 is pretty great. Have there been more than a very few examples of negativity since they reached that record? There are always a few trolls and a few nuts but these last three games he has looked very nice indeed, and Bills fans are aware of it.

 

Most posts that might get called negative aren't so much negative about Allen as they are negative about the nuts who feel he's already clearly better than Brady and Brees and the rest, the people who don't feel happy unless they're being wildly, unrealistically and loudly overoptimistic.

I was in the camp that we should draft Josh Rosen.  Boy was I wrong!

 

I have been a Josh Allen fan after the initial reaction To the Bills not drafting Rosen.

 

Allen is a high character guy, a leader of men, hard working, and does not consider loosing an option.

 

We have found our quarterback for now and the future.

 

Thank you for coming on this board and giving us your insights.

Jerkoffs gonna jerkoff. It's not a Josh Allen issue. It's something those people carry with them.
