Wow that's crazy. I am so glad I was wrong about him. I hated the pick when we made it at the time. I thought he had too many fundamental flaws to overcome. Josh deserves a ton of credit for working on his game and being a consummate professional. This team and city so deserves this guy and can't wait to see what he does for the next decade plus.

Josh Allen has become exactly what i thought he would be if he has continuity and time to develop. I was worried when he came in year one and was thrust into a starting role cuz Peterman. I really thought Cleveland would’ve been the best spot for him because Tyrod could’ve held the fort down for a year or two while Josh sat.

The people who expected immediate results with Josh are 🤡. Straight up. Everyone who knew anything about Josh Allen knew he would need time and proper coaching...wah lah. Look what happened.

The most impressive thing to me with Josh is the fact that he didn’t develop/keep bad habits from his first season that was completely void of surrounding talent.

Turns out i was wrong and that Buffalo was the absolute perfect spot for him because of Sean and Brandon. EVERYTHING starts with them. It’s truly incredible what they have done with this franchise. Look at the Sabres right now, the dysfunction, the constant knocks on Terry and Kim from and ownership standpoint and we don’t hear a frighten peep about dysfunction within the Bills front office, yet the two franchises have the same owners. McDermott and Beane have been God sent.

Yes I was the same way. I was super high on him in his Junior year when media attention was high on him saying he would be the next Carson Wentz coming out as a small school but great results, then his senior season he looked sloppy and got injured. I was more high on Baker and liked his attitude, which I quickly realized it wasnt having a chip on his shoulder but just being cocky attention seeking. I am glad I was wrong because everytime I got my hopes up in years past thinking they had a winning season ahead of them, I was wrong and then this happened and I said typical Bills move. As it reminded me of drafting JP Losman over trying to get guys like Eli, Rivers, or Big Ben we settle for this guy. I thought history repeated itself.  I just hope this isn't a fluke year and we actually have a guy for years to come. This is perfect time because it is year 3 and that means we have 2 more years to make sure he is the real deal before having to pay him 40+ mil a year. I would hate to be in a situation like Rams and Eagles paying a ton of money for a qb who is constantly on a roller coaster with his playing ability.

I feel bad for Bojo lmao, he's an elite, pro bowl/all-pro level punter and here we are, a team that never effing punts.

I don't feel too bad for hm. He's getting paid to punt the ball about 2.5 times per game. Sounds like a dream to me ha. Hopefully this trend continues into February.

BoJo besides one horrendous punt  againt the Cardinals has been a huge surprise. I do think punting less has helped him statistically... our Special Teams has shown some drastic improvements with both our young Kickers

I don't see a regression coming if we lose Daboll either. I've gone back recently and looked at the 22 for his rookie year and... yeah he had issues, his base wasn't right, his mechanics slip when he has to break the pocket or got happy feet when he felt something but we, and I, were way to harsh on his ability that year. "Oh 53%" okay and if you remove Zay Jones drops, and intentional incompletions (spikes)... he completes 60.5% of his passes. Completion % is not a measurement of accuracy and I think we need to reframe that, Josh had accuracy issues but it was not a profound inability to drive the ball accurately, it was just slight issues with his mechanics that with time, effort, and a lot of hard work(and by all accounts Josh is one of the rare guys who is ALWAYS working) they were amenable. And last year the accuracy was there in spurts he was just coming into his new mechanics and figuring out elements of his game. But ever since that first Pats game last year other than a bad game against the Ravens he's... basically been this the entire time since.
