Allen 10 games in: 68.4%% comp, 7.9 YPA, 103.2 Passer Rating, 27 TDs, 11 TOs (Cards talk starts pg 18)

Recommended Posts

Allen has over 2,000 yards with 16 TDs and 4 INTs over 7 games, plus 3 rushing TDs.  I'm not going to freak out that the first 4 games were better than the next 3.  I'm going to remember what it was like watching Trent Edwards, Kyle Orton, Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman and be happy that Sundays are worth looking forward to for more than just being a day off work.

There were rough patches in this game for sure, but at a certain point it looked like a light bulb came on in terms of playing against the zone defense, which is how it seems opposing Ds will play us from now on.

 

I really think we miss John Brown in this offense.

 

Patriots, Seahawks and Cardinals in a tough 3 game stretch before our bye.

Take what they give you, eh? Brown being out does hurt the offense.  Nice to see the RBs more involved today.

Pats gave up almost 470 yards at home today. Looking forward to the Josh revenge game. Bet he gets up for that one.

Josh when he "gets up" for a game scares me, frankly.

This is not scientific at all but I look for flushed cheeks 

 

If Allen looks normal, game on. When his face gets red I get worried

I think this game was the most emotionally under control I've ever seen Josh and it's no coincidence that he was taking every 5-9 yard gain that the defense was surrendering.

THEY PLAYED THE JESTS 🙄. They aren't good. Josh Allen had regressed since 4-0. Watching the Chiefs and the Bucs play shows how far the Bills are from their class. 

 

Yes, Josh Allen is not yet Pat Mahomes or Tom Brady.  Shocking.

Kelly was the opposite, when his face was pale and gaunt, it was a sure loss.

Josh Allen always seems to be learning and today it looked like he added the, “playing against zone D” software.

 

A quiet 300 yard game but I’m extremely happy to see him learning.

Calm down.

 

First of all you can never underestimate the impact of divisional rivalries. Second of all, Allen was playing without John Brown, all but 1 of his TEs and his starting Guard.

 

It wasn’t especially pretty but it was a road divisional W. That's important.

 

In the 2nd half I really think you're undervaluing something: Allen looks like he started figuring out the zone D. Say what you want about the Jets, but Gregg Williams is a darn good D coordinator and you can bet he saw Allen against the zone D against Tennessee and Kansas City. That's super encouraging considering he's about to go up against Belichick.

 

Besides, if Kroft can keep his footing and Davis doesn't have a stupid pre-snap formation penalty, Allen has 350+ yards passing and a couple of TDs to boot.

If they were a good team they would have covered the spread and been the dominant team many want them to be. Maybe Bills fans should start watching games outside of the Bills and see what  good teams look like. I look at what the Bucs and The Chiefs did today. The Bills wish they were in the same league. 

 

Who cares about the F'in spread other than people focused on making money on NFL games rather than focused on their own team?

Y"all are just like @JoefromWinslow. Just happy with a win. Doesn't matter if they barely beat the lowly Jests. 🙄

 

How old are you? 

 

You must be a brand new Bills fan.

 

Welcome, but understand that you will ALWAYS take a W for the team you're rooting for and move on to the next week because unlike almost any sport, the NFL is a week to week league.

That's like saying it's hard of win in this league. I look at other teams in the league each week and I see a big difference between the elite teams and the middle of the pack teams like the Bills. After 4 seasons with Mcclappity and Beane I expected the Bills to be in the same league as the Chiefs, Steeles and Titans. Injuries aside they shouldn't have had difficulty with the Jets. I think thats the biggest problem with many Bills fans that have been around since the Rockpile days. This isn't that NFL, it doesn't take 4 years to be a top team.

You seem to like football on paper rather than watching actual games played.

 

You said "injuries aside," which is pretty convenient for your apocalyptic perspective. But the fact remains that you can't put those injuries aside. They were part of the equation on top of the Jets getting their rookie WR back and a new offensive play caller and a 2 week "zone defense blueprint on how to defeat Josh Allen." This week Allen managed to overcome being without his starting Guard, his TEs, and the WR he has probably the most longstanding trust in. On top of that our D was clearly playing with half a Milano and without 2 of its 3 top CBS.

 

But we won.

 

You take it, get healthy, and move on happily with the W to the next game.

 

That's the NFL, not your game played on paper.

Also still has an insane red zone scoring percentage, despite coming up short today. And also still zero red zone interceptions. Allen's so good we're calling his 300 yard games "quiet" and even "hollow" now as SaviorIQ or whatever calls him.

 

Imagine still not buying in on Allen. Not exactly a step in the right direction, basement analysts. Try harder.

Let's watch how the season plays out.  The Bills were "battling for first in the division" in 2018-2019 too.  Then the Pats kicked our teeth in.

If Arizona loses tonight, they will be 2.5 games out of 1st place and will have lost 3 out of 4.

 

 

This Stidham, or maybe Cam Newton led, aerial assault to Jakobi Meyers or the bust that is N'Keal Harry Patriots team isn't kicking anybody's teeth in. They are bad. Believe it folks.

Let me guess you're a fan of the Bills from the ancient days. So any improvement is good enough. Sorry but with the parity in the NFL its not hard to win in this league like many seem to believe. 

 

Just quoting for the horrific nature of this take. Can't quite yet determine if it's junior here schooling us on the "ancient days" of 2012 where we desired better quarterback play, or the nonchalant 18 Coors Light deep fueled declaration that it's easy to win in the NFL that's the cherry.

Sorry but it doesn't take 4 years to turn a season around. Winning the division isn't enough. I expect them to be on the same level as the best teams in the league at this point. 

 

The best teams in the league...that regularly win Super Bowls? I can think of maybe one? What in the world is this. Who are the "best teams in the league" that regularly win more than just their divisions?

No I have seen teams turn it around quickly. Look at the Bucs. 

Yeah, the bucs got better when they added the best quarterback to ever play the position, imagine that.

Fans need to stop making excuses for Allen. All QB's deal with injuries to the talent around them, it's part of the game.

I agree with this in the sense that there is barely a QB in the league who has everything perfect around him at the moment. Even Mahomes is down two starting OL and his #2 receiver.

 

Where I would just take a slightly different view is the presumption that Allen needs excuses making for him. I didn't think he played very well in the first half last night and listening to Josh nor did he, but he put his big boy pants on second half and came out and played a really good 2nd half. If people are looking at Josh as the reason we didn't win more convincingly last night they are looking at the wrong thing.

That's all fine and good but it was against the Jets... He could not play well against better competition when given the chance the two games prior. Will he be able to play better against teams such as the Steelers? I'm very skeptical of that...
