The Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen for DD
2018 The Bills trade up to # 7 to draft Josh Allen. This was Brandon Beanes guy. His reason was he had a huge arm to throw threw the swirling winds at Wilson Stadium. Big hands, 6’5” 240 and played in the snow and high altitude in Wyoming. Knock on Allen accuracy. 50% completions in a down field offense. Wing it and fling it. No check downs. We saw moments of a good QB
His receivers? #1 Zay Jones and after thought in LV. Kelvin hands of stone Benjamin and Charley Cay. Ugh. 50% completions.
2019 The Bills pick up John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency and draft Devin Singletary. 10-6 and an ugly playoff lose. Allen looked like a deer in the headlights trying to do way to much. 59% completions
2020 A small sentence about a trade for Stefon Diggs over shadowed the same day by the Arizona trade for Hopkins.
McDermitt built a defense first to keep the Bills in games. He came 4 years ago with Beane. Do you know how many players are there from 4 years ago? 1. DE Jerry Hughes.
Josh Allen in his first 2 years played every play like it was the last play in the Super Bowl. This year he’s learned it’s ok to throw the ball away. It’s ok to punt. He’s got 21 other players. Geez he’s 24 years old. He wonderlic score was 37. The game now comes to him. His reads are better. The game is slower. 70% completions. Diggs the afterthought trade 127 receptions 1500 yards with zero preseason or training camp.
My credit goes to Brandon Beane and McDermitt. They dumped the dead money. The malcontents and brought in guys that bought in. Is this the most talented team in the playoffs? Maybe not but damn they sure are having fun! When the Bills win the Super Bowl every team will look at this script and copy it.
