Win or lose, this is definitely his moment to announce himself to the rest of the world. If I was McDermott, I would approach him after he hurdled Barr, just like the coach in Major League- Nice play, dont ever do that crap again.
Haha indeed!

Very impressive play today. The fake screen for a TD was an incredible play that showed just how smart this player is: Outstanding footwork today. Showed touch and accuracy all day.

Even his critics are going to come around him eventually.
The clock is running and there are no timeouts

Had a dropped pick and the fumble, but definitely looked much better this week after last week's disastrous showing . . . bouncing back like this, on the road, against a very good defense, is absolutely a good sign for him

I was low on him before the preseason but he showed better footwork and smarts in those 4 games than I thought he had, still early days but my original prediction of him being a turd looks way off. Very athletic for a big guy

He also had a perfectly thrown 50+yard bomb to Foster dropped and Benjamin dropped two right out the gate. One which would have put them at first and one at the goal line. This was with no Shady either, so one would assume the defensive strategy shifts even more with a teams best player gone. Imagine if Lamar Jackson would have done this or Baker, and I am a huge Baker fan. Josh I was and still am mixed on, but somehow many seem to downplay this performance. One game though, so hopefully he can follow it up next week at another tough place to play. Hopefully the D plays well again and he is not in a 2 td hole to AAron.

I was impressed. The leadership was pretty darn good for a rookie who was probably the best player on his entire offense.

Nope it was obviously a fluke. There is no possible way a kid playing against crap competition in college with a completion percentage below 57.2 percent could ever be good. Its just not possible. Based on my analysis of the advanced statistics its impossible.

Statistics only go so far. Tough to measure one's character and grit. Josh Allen has leadership skills that I think will pay off in the long run. Impressive win for the rookie against my purple. Gotta admit, I didn't see it coming. I don't think many people did.

A couple things:
1. While I'm an Allen fan despite the analytics, the analytics are usually right
2. Are we crowing him after one game? Again -- he looked good, but one big win doesn't make a stud.

While I'm also an Allen fan and hopeful, I think it's important to point out, while analytics are right more than they are wrong, that only means >50%, which leaves quite a bit up for interpretation. I think analytics are essential but need to be taken in context and occasionally with a grain of salt. I think beyond the stats, his guts were the biggest thing on display vs MN. It was very encouraging, and I think if they can improve the line and add some weapons they could really be in business.

I met Denny Green on a Commercial flight once. Sat right across from him. Cool dude. This was after his MN stint, but I believe it was before this epic rant. We talked some football of course, but he was really laid back and down to earth. Thought it might be relevant considering this everlasting image in our minds.
