What's different for Josh Allen this year?

Recommended Posts

A guy doesn't suddenly go from completing <60% of his passes to >70% without doing some retooling. Yes, Diggs has been a big help, but he just looks like a very different player.

Obviously nothing at all. He's exactly, 100%, the same. He has always been this, and nothing less.

Footwork, keys to the offense, continuity in said offense, actual play makers around him. To name a few things.

That vans guy was dead on about him and it kills some in this forum to admit that as the guy is committed to his not always popular opinions

Josh has said himself he’s feeling more comfortable in the offense, throwing with more anticipation, and steadying his mechanics. Cole Beasley says that confidence Allen has been showing from playing his first full season + adding time to his belt, is letting him make throws he wouldn’t even try the past year. Lawson mentioned the same improvement. 

Continuity is nice and adding one of the best deep threats in the league to a cannon-armed QB is obviously a great pairing, but it sounds like Allen’s finally got comfortable in his offense with his surrounding cast.

The football gods decided that it was his turn through RNGesus.

Universally agreed upon extremely RAW QB who was thrust into starting because Peterman had a supporting cast of

 

Fat Kelvin Benjamin

Robert Foster

Zay Jones

Charles Clay

LeSean McCoy

bottom 5 offensive line

 

Now has a top 10 WR, an upper echelon #2WR, a top tier slot receiver, a top 10 offensive line, and no turnover in coaching staff outside of QB coach.

By studying him, it’s mostly his lower body mechanics first and foremost. 

Next it’s the play calling and having a wr that can stretch the field such as Diggs

His extra attention to footwork and biting the burger on his throws.

Great weapons around him and a coaching staff (love Daboll and Dorsey) have made for a perfect pairing.

The fact he has a true #1 WR in Diggs helps. He has just gotten progressively better with his footwork and execution imo. He still has turnovers that are the result of a bad decision at times but most QBs do. He is a more than capable QB that is winning football games.
