Josh Allen - week THREE report card

Recommended Posts

WEEK ONE: B+

WEEK TWO: A+

 

WEEK THREE: B+

 

24/33 - 73% completion - 311 yards - 4 TDs 1 INT - 8 yards rushing - 1 rushing TD - 1 fumble

 

Before the pitchforks come out regarding my grade let me make one thing clear: Josh had some really bad plays that could/should have lost us the game... we still won, but it does not erase those head scratching, game crippling plays. You take those away? He has another A+ game. All I ask is you don't let the flashy fantasy scores blind your assessment of his play this week.

 

With that said, here is what I loved:

- Flawless first half of football. He was in command at all times and showed franchise qualities that he is indeed the dude.

- Trusting his WR's and spreading the ball all around the field

- a mix of fastballs and loft change ups - his touch is unreal right now (Diggs laser in the endzone vs Ramsey was amazing)

- He is our offense. 5 TD's total

 

most importantly...

- when things were bad, and we knew it was Josh Allen time, deep down I knew he would somehow pull it off. It reminded me of watching Brett Favre back in the day, or even Rodgers now. The 3rd down and long to Beez was just amazing. Then to follow it up with a game winner was must see TV!

 

As Josh progresses and starts becoming weekly MVP talk, we need to be more critical and hopefully clean up the head scratching moments. Yes, maybe the INT should not have counted, but it did and lead to a complete snowball effect of a Rams comeback. Yes, when he avoids the blitz he sometimes makes nice throws down the field however yelling at a ref after a play and taking sacks in moments where we absolutely cannot allow it just cannot happen if we want to win playoff games. Need proof? Watch our last playoff game.

 

Overall, Josh is playing at an incredible level and as a Bills fan I could not be happier. I invested tons of $$ in his rookie cards 3 years ago and right now those prices have absolutely sky rocketed. People are starting to believe, and I am sure networks are calling the league right now trying to get more Josh Allen on TV. B+ vs A-, who cares. We should all be celebrating as Bills fans. We have waited a LOOOONG TIME for this.

 

GO BILLS!

5 TDs and a game winning drive are the biggest factors here. The INT was complete crap.

 

The only thing I’ll ding him for is being shaky in the pocket towards the end.

This grade is absolutely ludicrous he’s at minimum an A at no time since Jim Kelly do we get a QB that can do the things this kid did today

a 5 touchdown game, including a game winning 4th quarter drive.   As always, your explanation doesn't justify your odd grade

Suppppper shaky, but the way he was able to move past it to regain his composure was breathtaking.

He's been the same player every week getting off to a good start, then making a few mistakes in the second half before a strong finish. 3-0 and Josh is biggest reason.

Bad Josh started to reappear there for a while.  

 

It's a testament to his progress that he forced him back into his box and let Good Josh win the game...

A+
 

Fourth quarter comeback. Five touchdowns. Overcame an awful call and a momentum shift. Bailed his defense out.

 

Oh, and his O-Line was getting absolutely destroyed at the end of the game and he still made it happen on several third and long plays.

 

Did he make a few mistakes? Yes. That doesn’t invalidate all of the points above.

To explain why your grades are so bad.  If Allen replicates these performances every week, he is the undisputed MVP.  If your performances are on an MVP level, they shouldn't be Bs.

You do know he was credited with one INT today, right? It was BS, but it an INT.

 

Very nice game. But a few sloppy plays puts my score at B+ as well.

Ill say this:  Allen in a 2 minute drive to win the game and i have full confidence he’ll do something. Thats all that matters. We have our franchise. No point in grading him anymore. Hes not being replaced. Sit back and enjoy the next 15yrs.
