Josh Allen thinks Bills offense has found its identity

The last four weeks have seen Bills quarterback Josh Allen flip back and forth between good and bad performances.

He completed 47 percent of his passes while losing a fumble in a 31-13 loss to the Eagles in Week Eight and then rebounded by hitting on 70 percent of his throws in a Week Nine win over Washington. Week 10 saw him run for two touchdowns, but his passing numbers dipped back down as the Bills slumped to a 19-16 loss to the Browns.

Last Sunday was another good day for Allen and the Bills. He completed over 63 percent of his passes, threw three touchdowns and ran for another in a 37-20 win over the Dolphins. While the inconsistent performances might suggest the team is still searching for a sense of its self offensively, Allen thinks the Miami game was a sign that they’ve found it.

“We really found our identity as an offense. We’ve got a good sense of who we are as a team,” Allen said, via Syracuse.com. “We’re gonna continue to roll with what we’ve been doing.”

Allen’s feelings should be put to the test down the stretch. All six of their remaining opponents rank in the top half of the league defensively and the Bills’ ability to navigate those games will determine whether they have any chance of playing into January.

  1. Out of all the QB’s picked during the 2018 draft, why does Josh Allen get the most hate?? What did that man ever do you all? Did he talk bad about your mom? Did he steal your girl?? WHAT!!!!??? And don’t just ignore the question either…answer it. I have never in my life seen a guy take so much criticism. He’s a good dude. Never beat any women, abused children, taken any PEDs or anything. But all you losers can do on a daily basis is ride this guys jock to no end. It’s really pretty pathetic if you ask me. Haters will hate I guess. Guess you guys are going to be hating even more when we’re in the playoffs. Hate on.

    It’s all right here, he’s alright against crappy teams and stinks the joint out against the better teams.

    Wait till he plays a good team, it’s gonna get fugly.

    Wide right, you lose again.

  3. Allen is a powerhouse. That’d what scares the negative nabobs.
    Road to Canton
    # some guy’s just don’t know football
    Right at three top again. Do you get emails every Bills post or something? That’s called obsession

  4. Ofcourse they do have an identity. But that identity will show up when they play teams with winning record! When they plays losing teams they deviate from that identity.

    Mitchell Trubisky may disagree with you saying you’ve never heard someone take so much criticism.

  6. An identity might be a bit premature but they are getting chemistry on the O-line. the quarterback and receivers are getting their timing down and their nuances and Josh is gaining better at reading defenses, coverages and mismatches.

  7. A lot of haters on this comment thread. Trolls that aren’t worth feeding.

    Will just add that moving OC Daboll from the sidelines to the box probably helped quite a bit last week. Let’s see more of that.

    Wow! Why’s this Bills fan so salty? You should calm down before you blow a gasket. Better yet, don’t you have another rubber “toy” to throw onto the field? Stay classy Buffalo!

  10. Allen wasn’t actually that bad against the Browns. People focus on the 16 points but 2 mnissed FG’s and another one that the Bills passed on attempting add 9 points, that gives the Bills 25. Then Allen had a pass dropped that would have put the Bills in range for at least another FG. That means, the Bills could have scored 28 points without Allen doing anything different. That is why football is a team game.

  11. This franchise has been so desperate for a great quarterback that they anointed this clown as the savior, he’s an 85.2 rated quarterback, no accuracy, I feel sad for those fans

    __________________________

    I can think of quite a few of reasons:

    #1) he didn’t have the stats or play at a school with the competition worthy of going anywhere close to the 1st round.

    #2) some fans(like myself) are sick and tired of watching these QBs get pushed up the draft board into the early 1st round just because of what they did in shorts and a tee-shirt against no pass rush and with no defenders on the receivers!

    #3) just being the prototypical size and able to throw the ball 70yd DOESN’T make someone a 1st round QB!

    #4) the media(and then they sell it to their readers) believe what these players do at the combine is worth more than how they performed in actual games, well IT ISN’T!

    Add it all up and throw in the desperation level some teams are at to find a QB and they’re willing to take what should be a 2nd, 3rd or 4th round QB in the early 1st round and that’s one of the main reasons the BUST rate for 1st round QBs since 2000 is at well over 70% and climbing!

    To put it another way I’m tired of all of these QB that don’t deserve to be starting in the NFL, the product the NFL is putting on the field continues to regress year after year and I’m very close to the point that I don’t care if I ever watch another NFL game. There are more sorry teams in the NFL this season than I ever remember in my 50+ years of watching!

  15. Almost the entire offense is new with the exception of Josh. Of course it’s gonna take time to start clicking. We’re starting to see more consistency from them. Josh has definitely made improvements, but he has to become more consistent week in and week out.

    As far as the people ripping Josh – Offensive Player of the Week. Baker Mayfield, Darnold, and Josh Rosen were all said by tou to be a better pick than Josh. Check the stats. You’ll just continue to look more idiotic each week.

  16. Josh is a second year QB who played at Wyoming for two years. He didn’t develop his NFL body until junior college. He has very little high level experience. He is closer to a rookie in year two than any other QB drafted last year. He still has a high ceiling, and he may or may not be any good. Time will tell. I think everyone needs to tap the breaks. We will know a lot more next year. I mean he is such a raw talent. If he puts it together, WOW. If not, oh well. The Bills will try again in 2021 or 22.

  17. oh well, we’ll get to see how that identity fares from here on out, won’t we?
    The caliber of teams on tap for these bills will let us know how far along Allen has come.
    I for one look forward to watching it all unfold, starting this weekend against the solid Broncos D!

  18. I swear, Allen will be hoisting the Lombardi over his head, and people will still say he’s an inaccurate bust.

    It’s hard for some fans to abandon narratives that they start for certain players. They read scouting reports for Allen coming out of college, and thought “inaccurate,” without looking into the make-up of that college team, or their style of offense, which had fewer high percentage passes like screens and slants.

    And many still don’t watch Bills games, and just look at stats lines. Allen is not inaccurate, and his potential is huge. He just continues to get better.
