Does Josh live in Buffalo or WNY in the offseason?

I “Get It”, it just seems really lame if the guys are allowed to be in the facility and receive treatment or train there, but they can’t have contact with coaches.

I know the restrictions exist, and I understand why the restrictions exist, I’m just not sure it’s 100% to the players benefit.

I don't disagree with you guys, and I could be wrong, as i said my understanding is the coaches aren't allowed to interact with the players or it's a CBA Violation, which is why the players go to outside QB coaches and facilities to work out... if they're at their team's facilities they aren't allowed to interact with the coaches so they're just doing it on their own, so why not go to a facility where they can work with trainers.  

 

It's always easier to work out with a trainer and other guys than by yourself.

CBA is really strict on what the coaches can and cannot demand of guys during their "breaks". 

Ya.

 

NFLPA is really worried of season scope creep -- in other words, they're afraid of the season obligation of a player growing to nearly a year round proposition.

Pictured at Javier Cantna in Newport Beach is:

Stephen Hauschka, Cam Phillips, Da’Mari Scott, Matt Barkley, Josh Allen, Jason Croom, Victor Bolden.

I hope he works out with some quality receivers this off-season.

Sounds like an NCAA type move.....BAD

If a QB is working out with a private coach like Palmer you can bet that coach and the QB’s team are on the same page with the training.  If not, there’s real problems somewhere.

The trouble with that is then the line gets foggy. All of a sudden offseason work with the coaches is "not required but highly recommended"

 

In any case, although it seems silly on some level, if it's equal for all teams then it's fine. I imagine the coaching staffs also have good recommendations for the players as to where they should go and train and whom they should train with.

Like most people. He lives somewhere else during the winter, then returns when the weather gets better.

Allen is going to make the team next year, of course.  A lot of guys can't be sure they will.  Those are the guys the CBA protects/limits by denying them the opportunity to interact with coaches.  If I'm one of four guys on the bubble for a position, and I know two of the others are training and talking to coaches every day, then I have to do it too to protect my interests.  On the flip side, a player who could benefit from a coach's guidance during the offseason can't get that assistance.

 

My view is, these guys don't have to go back home and get regular jobs in the offseason the way players back in the 60s did.  There were stories about some of the championship Bills working in hardware stores or selling carpets in the offseason, just to make ends meet.  So, since players today make so much money, why not let this be a full-time job, with year-round access to coaches and trainers.

The Union made agreements with Ownership. Rules were put in place. With this much money on the line in a hyper litigious world, no one wants to take those chances.

It appears to benefit union more.  I wonder what would happen if a player told NFL and NFLPA in right-to-work state I do not want to part of union.

There must be some players with anti-union tendancies especially when NFLPA supports players who hurt other players in violation of rules.

My wife is in Newport Beach a lot these days. She’s there again next week, in fact. I had to cancel my last trip (which would have been my first), but hope to hit that place when I do make it out there. Just.........because. My wife is not into “places”, but came back after her first trip saying “I could live there!”

Allen owns a home in the area, I am sure he is back from time to time. But he said he likes to go back to CA to visit family & friends & also he trains with Jordan Palmer in CA, he probably comes back late winter/early spring to start working out.

 

 

He bought there?

 

Dude....

If this point was made somewhere I apologize as I missed it.  I know many fans feel he has WNY personality traits in abundance.  For example his showing up to that local high school football game unannounced.  But just how much of a Buffalo kind of guy is he?

 

I wouldn’t necessarily question his dedication any more in the offseason if he lived elsewhere.  It’d be just something that’d sound real cool should he keep developing/progressing 

If you were him would you stay here or go to So. California? Yeah I thought so

If I thought it would be more conducive to developing my craft I'd say in Buffalo.

Avocados “have a yucky texture” to her, so it’s Newport Beach she loves. (It could be Javier, but I doubt it, sort of....) We’ll never be able to afford the life we’d like there....but I should reserve judgement until I visit. I’m into living somewhere nice every day (like NOW), while she’s more interested in getting to the “finish line”. No guarantee I reach that, so I’m more “let’s be happy TODAY!”
