smuvtalker Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 I did a search prior to posting this, my apologies if it's already being discussed. I just finished watching a clip from The Carton Show on a preview of the Bills Jets game, and Jets DE John Franklin-Myers was quoted as saying that Josh Allen pleads with the refs for penalty calls....and all I could say was.... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? First off, this is the DE who singlehandedly cost the Jets the game last week with his boneheaded roughing the passer penalty. His stupid penalty wiped away an 85 yard pick six that would've essentially put the game away. So what does he do for an encore? Brings up a player completely unrelated, and tries to say Allen is a flopper, and pleads with the refs for calls. Let me say this. I'm as big a Bills fan as anyone, and I've been guilty on more than one occasion of having a biased opinion when it comes to our Bills, but this comment is pure absurdity at it's most impressive. Josh Allen in my opinion has NEVER flopped OR pleaded with the refs for a call he didnt deserve. If anything, Allen takes way more hits with no flags called than pretty much any quarterback I've seen with the exception of Cam Newton, MAYBE. I believe that a big reason for that is his aggressive running style, and also that he's probably better at dishing punishment out than any other QB to play the game. Jets players and coaches alike have got to be wanting to shove this guy in a closet for making comments like this prior to the game. As if Allen and company needed any additional motivation, I'm sure this raised some eyebrows in the Bills locker room. Sometimes I really wonder what is going through a players mind when they make these type of idiotic statements. Thoughts? 4 9 2 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
