Jalen Ramsey has changed his opinion of Josh Allen from “trash” to “talented”

With Jalen Ramsey coming to town, Bills quarterback Josh Allen this week downplayed Ramsey’s “trash” comment about Allen.

Much has changed since Ramsey made his critique of Allen and several other NFL quarterbacks during an interview with GQ in 2018. Allen, the seventh overall choice that season, hadn’t even taken his first snap. Ramsey still was with the Jaguars.

Now, Ramsey plays for the Rams, and Allen leads the league with 729 passing yards (or did until Gardner Minshew played a third game Thursday night).

Ramsey has changed his tune, too.

He’s talented,” Ramsey said Friday, via Eric D. Williams of SI.com.

Allen long has insisted publicly he wasn’t/isn’t bothered by Ramsey’s assessment. But at least once Allen has shown he hasn’t forgotten.

During the 2019 offseason, after Allen’s Bills beat Ramsey’s Jaguars during the 2018 season, Allen signed a photo and included the message: “Hey Ramsey. . . . Am I still trash?”

Ramsey answered the question — sort of — Friday.

“He presents challenges,” Ramsey said. “Every week you have to face a new challenge, and this is our third week so we have to face the challenge of him and that Bills’ offense. He has some weapons around him. He can make plays running the ball and extending plays, etc, etc. . . . Kind of the things everyone knows about him.

“But I’m confident in what I can do and this Rams’ defense can do, and that’s kind of what matters the most to me and the guys around here.”

  1. These two guys better learn to get along. They’ll be on the same team some day when both are enshrined in the Hall Of Fame.

  2. And what better time to reconsider that statement. Right before he has to cover the NFL’s leading receiver Stefon Diggs with an extra motivated Josh Allen throwing to him Should be fun to watch

  3. Diggs and Allen go up against Tre White daily, ya know for fun. Not worried about u Jalen Allen will prove it on the field this year. So far he looks much better to the haters dismay. I’m more concerned with the front 7, they will dictate how this game goes.

  4. I don’t post much anymore on here, but here is my take on this game. Obviously I am a Bills fan. The Rams are a legit team. My older brother’s favorite team, has been since he was little kid with Roman Gabriel at QB, he doesn’t hate the Bills, but huge Ram’s fan. We were suppose to be at this game together, but Covid shut that down. We have been going at it all week. Ramsey is a great DB, don’t think he is as good as White from Buffalo. Pretty much all three of the WR’s from Buffalo, Beasley, Brown and Diggs are open all the time. If our OL can hold up and Allen can stay back there and throw the ball with time, game over. Aaron Donald, bar none is the best defensive player in the NFL, not even close, the guy is a beast. Diggs is a great, great route runner, Ramsey will have his hands full. Great route runner for the Rams is Robert Woods, wish the Bills would have kept him. One of best route runners in NFL and best blocking WR in the NFL. I hated losing Robert Woods. I didn’t blink an eye when Sammy Watkins left this team. Robert Woods is a true football player. I still think the Bills win this game. 32-24. See what happens.

  5. I’d love to see Allen and Diggs burn him early and often. Ramsey is the one who’s trash. I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes up with another phantom back injury so he doesn’t have to play in the game.

  6. I hope Allen trucks Ramsey on a QB keeper. That would be the best highlight reel to see.
    Ramsey has a huge mouth and is overrated big time.
    And I am not a fan of either team

  7. I’d take Ramsey as top 3 at his position. Josh Allen is not in the top 10 qb’s, but yes he’s still great and is surrounded by talented receivers.

  8. Call me crazy but i like that other teams are starting to make noise aside from the normal bunch of darling teams

  9. Ramsey is an elite player with an elite “mouth”, but apparently he also has an elite sense of social media…in other words, in case they lose, he doesn’t want to get burnt by his past stupid comments and get roasted in the Twitterverse. Oh for shame!

  10. @samapoc I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there aren’t 10 better QB’s right now in The NFL. There aren’t.

    ———————————————————————————
    This year he is.. In fact he is in the top FIVE on most of categories.

  12. It’s an anticipated game. So, the Bills will lose. The last time the Bills won a playoff game was 1995. When they had the best NFL team, they still lost every SB. The 2 most identifiable words for a team is ‘Wide Right’. All facts.

    Joshgordonsbong: Right because Cam Newton and Minshew put up similar numbers against the Dolphins! 🙄
    ………………………………………………………….
    A. minshew is a bum
    B. you mean the cam that had a 100 rating that completed 79% of his passes hile running for 75b yards and 2 tds….lol you played yourself

  14. Until this season, Josh Allen was mediocre. In his first 2 years as a starter, he threw for less than 60% completion, averaging 6.6 yards/pass…..nothing to brag about.

    This season, Allen looks great. But keep in mind that it’s only been two games and they were against the Jets and Miami, with a combined 1-3 record.

    This weekend, the Bills finally play a decent team. It’s a long season, but this week should give us a peak at how far Aleen and the Bills have come.

  15. Ramsey’s talent is running along with and grabbing at the ball carrier until the safety gets there to make the actual tackle.

    That’s the point. He is medicore because he folds against a good defense, not even a great one.

    He lacks accuracy, is predictable, already has 2 fumbles in 2 games (he had 10 last year!), and makes bad decisions more than what you’d want.

    It’s mindboggling watching the forced hype before he even earns it.

  17. joshgordonsbong: No the Newton that threw for over 400 yards with 4TDs against the Dolphins because if Josh Allen can do it any QB can. Wait he didn’t. He only threw for 155. Oh and Minshew threw for 3 TDS against both the Colts and Titans. So much for garbage. Nice try though. Thanks for playing.

    Who have the Bills beat this year? Just saying.

    ——————————

    They’ve beaten the teams they were scheduled to play. Two games against inferior teams can just as easily be spun into two trap games in a row. And they won them both. If the Bills weren’t a good team, they would have a way to lose, like the Lions in week one or the Falcons in week two. But they didn’t.

    Um, they barely beat Miami.

    And, they beat the Jets at home.

    This is what you are defending while backing the idea they are elite.

  20. I never said they were elite. Just that they won the games they were supposed to win. Isn’t that what good teams do?
