Not all interceptions and turnovers are the same.  Ones that occur on the goal line, in the red zone, and in OT are much worse and cost the team games.

 

That said, I agree with you that Allen will bounce back, set more records and get better.

Agreed. I would also add that INTs are also a reflection of a QB's willingness to take calculated risks. That Josh has thrown a lot of INTs is also an indirect indicator that he has also made some sensational plays by trusting himself (and his teammates) in numerous situations where another QB may not have -- the game winning TD against KC, for example.

 

As a comparison of the opposite extreme, I present to you Tyrod Taylor, who almost NEVER threw INTs -- but was way too timid to ever put the ball in "harm's way". I think we all agree that Josh is the better of the two. He just needs to be smarter about when it is time to take those risks -- and when there is no reason to do so.

I feel there is more to it than that . Josh has a new OC, add to that the new WR's he has plus the lack of the use of their running game & it's new players it's like he gets to a point they abandon what has worked in the running game then he puts him self in hero mode which is the second half when teams have made adjustments .

 

Instead of chilling out & taking what the opponent gives him he's looking to make the BIG PLAY to much and that's what's getting him in trouble he needs to let the other play makers make some plays instead of it being all him all the time . And Dorsey or someone needs to tell him that too .

Excellent video breaking down Josh's interceptions and other throws.  It makes me feel a lot better about Josh.  Gabe broke off his route, and caused one misfire for a TD.  And the Peterson interception was totally on Isiah.  He got pushed out of bounds, and quit on play.  Isiah should of grabbed Peterson and pulled him out with him.  Instead Vikes were playing 11 against 10 because lil dirty quit on play

He's had his fair share of picks that have been 100% on him but he's also had a handful of unfortunate ones that got tipped at the line and redirected to a defender, or bounced right out of a receivers hands and to a DB. Schnitt happens. It's the INTs that he's personally giftwrapping for opponents that make you wanna flip out. 

 

I remember the talking heads would always point out how he had zero red zone INTs in his career until he got picked in the AFC Championship in 2021. Then it was "only ever had one red zone INT!" And this season he's done that like four times already. Those turnovers really kill the momentum they build as well. 

 

I think Josh might be feeling the weight of expectations more then anyone right now. He already expects a lot from himself and although he does his best not to pay too much attention to it there's no way he hasn't heard the chatter about him being the MVP favorite and the Bills being a Super Bowl favorite. Isaiah McKenzie talked a bit about the pressure they're feeling on his weekly podcast with Ty Dunne. He basically said they are really meticulous with meetings and practices but when you get out there with 63,000 people cheering for you, it's just really easy to get super amped and just wanna make a play. And in Josh's case he's probably feeling like he  needs to make a play. A lot of the time it works in his favor. The times it hasn't just seem to really sting. He'll be alright.

See right here is just a nonsense comment to make. Your really trying to compare Allen to Wentz ?? Cmon man 🤦‍♂️


It’s as non-sensical as comparing Allen to Mahomes.

 

In all honesty, you have to feel for Allen a bit. He’s completely rattled and protecting an elbow injury behind one of the worst OLs in the game. The guy’s feet pitter patter after 2 steps.

This is reflection of coaching staff.  Some coaches (i.e. Rex Ryan) will browbeat QBs on interceptions even on long throws where the choice is between a short punt or long throw with interception chance.  Some coaches have ruined QBs earlier in career.

There’s a lotttt of qbs that are close to him in ints that have produced many less tds though lol 

 

tough luck int today 

Allen was almost due for some negative regression. It felt for a couple years now, perhaps based on his arm strength, the defense just couldn't come up with many that seemed like they should have. Not so lucky this year. Seems like every tipped ball is landing in the wrong spot. Reminds me of Mahomes at the start of last season.
