The Allen-Diggs Relationship in Decline?

I see every Bills game so I think if he was indeed interacting with his team mates when things werent going well, that would be on camera as well. no? I doubt that the cameras are intentionally pointed away if and when such interactions do happen. I dont profess to have made a psychological profile as clearly I have the data nor the skills to do so. However, I have seen Mahomes, Brady talk to players on occasion and see that as something Allen does not do. 

 

I don't think they're pointing away, No, but the networks obviously select and edit what they're going to show.  While the other team's offense/our defense is on the field, their focus is rightfully on those interactions.  Should it not be?

 

When you say "I see every Bills game", are you speaking of watching live, or are you speaking of watching what the TV editors choose us to see?

 

I have seen Allen talking to teammates.  I'm not equipped to compare it to Mahomes and Brady.  I think it's probably fair to say that Allen doesn't get in other players' grills, I haven't seen that from him since he was a rookie.

Diggs, Milano, Edmunds were the only 3 that showed up ready to play playoff football. Who else you got?

 

OK, I might disagree with one of them and I might name another player or 3. 

 

That would be a distraction from my point: you were canonizing St Diggs as the only player who came to play in the Bengals game, and the only one who came to play in the previous game, and justifying his post-game behavior as a result of that. 

I see it's now "1 of only 2-3 players that actually showed up to play hard", and that's fine.  Milano and Edmunds, the players you name, were in the locker room after the game, available to the press.  They were available on Locker Clean Out day.

 

Diggs dipped. 

Obviously you can be a passionate, invested competitor and angry and upset about a loss without dipping on your your responsibilities as a captain of the team and as an NFL player under contract governed by the CBA, which mandates press availability, win or lose.

I have no idea what to make of any of this - the only thing I know is that it’s not going to end well 

 

Huh?

 

Diggs cares about football.  He comes to play.  He is going to move on, Allen is going to move on, and the team is going to move on.

 

Unless Diggs continues this pattern of behavior this upcoming season, it's going to be a non-issue.

A team captain? Barf barf. There are 2 options. 1. Win Super Bowl 2. It ends poorly with diggs

What does everyone want him to do? Hang out and give everyone goodbye smooches for trying so hard during the first half of the season?

 

There was nothing left to do or say at that point.

 

This sounds like it’s coming from someone with a selfish mindset, or an individual who’s never played team sports. If it was an individual battle Diggs lost - boxing, tennis, bowling, whatever - then your stance is correct. Leave if you want, you have no one else to answer to but yourself. Obviously football is a team sport. There’s 53 other men and a collection of coaches who went to battle with you all season. You’ve been closer to those men for the last 8 months than your own child(ren)/wife/gf. You don’t storm out of the locker room to never return - until the following season’s mandatory minicamp. Take a break, collect your emotions, and then bring your leadership back to the locker room where it belongs. It’s bigger than just you.

Who cares. When the season starts, Diggs will be there and he will be 100% ready to win a SB. After this season, if the Bills don't win the SB, then I could see him being shipped outta town.

How many more Josh “relationship” threads must we endure?

 

I heard he's in love with his plow guy.

the going was tough DURING THE GAME. What you are referring to is after the "war" is already over and the guy just wants to go home. He bailed on no one. He was one of the only players leading the charge during the game, when it actually counted. Everyone else bailed on HIM. Josh included.

 

The second that game clock hit :00 he's not beholden to anyone. The entire team should have been kicked out of the building immediately at that whistle for how they performed.

 

 

This is Homer level 10,000.

Seriously...this is the dumbest story line of the offseason.

 

I mean all this ridiculous loathing and forcing a negative angle here when you don't actually know anything is pointless.  Just like all the posts about how Diggs is going to get traded that were not only absurd but mathematically impossible...yet that didn't stop all these posters and social media constantly pushing that fake narrative either.  

 

Here is an idea...how about you just move on until something real actually comes out from say Diggs or Allen that proves they are on the outs and there is an issue?  You guys aren't internet sleuths, so stop trying to decode this like it's a Dan Brown novel with hidden clues to a rift. 

 

Or maybe take the actual real things that have been said by Diggs and Allen more seriously...like where Diggs said Allen saved his career and saved his life during this past season.  Or when Diggs said during the Thanksgiving game Josh will never know how much he loves him.  Or when Allen literally just said Diggs is one of his favorite people on the entire planet.  

 

Better yet...go outside and enjoy the real world
