Josh Allen - week FOURTEEN report card

Recommended Posts

WEEK 1: B-

WEEK 2: B

WEEK 3: C+

WEEK 4: F

WEEK 5: B+

WEEK 7: B

WEEK 8: D+

WEEK 9: B+

WEEK 10: B-

WEEK 11: A

WEEK 12: B

WEEK 13: A

 

WEEK 14: C

 

17/39 - 146 yards - 44% completion - 1 TD - 9 yards rushing - 6 sacks - 1 fumble

 

The good: We went toe to toe with the top team in the AFC and had a chance to tie it at the end

 

The bad: Our defense is what kept us in it, and our RB/TE/WRʻs had some pretty bad drops that would have extended drives.

 

The ugly: Josh missed many throws that would have been HUGE gains, and took sacks that absolutely killed us... including the fumble.

 

All in all, I decided to keep it simple this week because we all saw the same thing: our offense blew a big game for us and has now caused us to lose to the top two teams in the AFC.

 

GO BILLS!

Josh to me is the "Puppy" in this commercial when he's too jacked up...

D. Not an F because the line was horrid today. But Josh missed on passes to open receivers and made bad decisions in the pocket - like scrambling left or right when he actually had time to step up and throw. And he didn't use his legs to his advantage. I think he ran once or maybe twice? He took bad sacks and fumbled. He also threw multiple balls up for grabs, which he hadn't done in a few weeks.

 

It was a very bad day for Josh Allen, made worse by terrible pass protection.

A C? Geez. Give credit when credit is due, but he stunk.

 

That was a D performance. I'll give him bonus points for fighting through injury.

How many of the sacks were his fault? Serious question. I could see him hold the ball too long at times, but he also had no time at all other times (not to mention bs route combos)

Yea I think C- 

 

There was a fair bit of bad from Josh today but there was enough good plays if guys had made plays for him. The skill guys were worse than Josh today.

he regularly left the pocket to early. Rolled left when he should have gone right, and right when he should have gone left. Had poor pocket presence, and held onto the ball too long.

 

The Oline was bad today, yes, but we’ve seen guys in the NFL do much better with much worse. Watson very quick comes to mind.

I'm tough on QBs. I believe it's on the QB to beat pressure unless it's a 4 man rush. If pressure is coming on 4 man rush it's the OL. If pressure is getting home on a blitz it's the QB not seeing it.

As much as I pull for Josh, I would grade him a D today.

 

I think that’s harsh.  He slung some catchable balls under duress where his receivers let him down

oh he saw a lot of them but had no answer  I wish Daboll would at least leave a back next to Josh   A threat of a draw or swing pass might at least give us some options

I try to be fair and not just a Josh homer.   He missed some passes, if he had connected, might have loosened up the D pressure.  Took some unfortunate sacks instead of throwing the ball away.  Although I am frustrated with Dabol's lack of adjustments, Allen needs to read the blitz better.

He left 3 long TDs on the field today.  He was not good at all.  A C- might be generous.  He picked it up a bit late, but this is a tough league and when you get guys running open for sure TDs, you have to hit them more often than not.  He didn't hit 1 of those long ones that were there for the taking.

 

And, between himself and the coaching staff, you have to learn to beat Cover 0 at least sometimes.  It was a bad game.  It happens.  Hopefully we have another shot at these guys in a few weeks.

C-

 

We gotta give him more protection or better play calls when D units are bringing the house. Drop passes when hit in 2 hands have to be caught 99% of the time. 

 

Allen still has work to do on his deep passes and my biggest knock still against him. He once again rose in the 4th qtr with the game on the line. I honestly did not see us clawing back in the 4th once we went down 15. I assumed we would not even score a TD on O. Somehow we still had a chance to tie the game with a minute or so left. You can't teach clutch, even in a loss that is special.
