Stefon Diggs wants to keep building with “damn near perfect” Josh Allen

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs‘ first season with the Bills went as well as anyone could have hoped as he posted 127 catches, 1,535 yards and eight catches to help the team win the AFC East.

Diggs added 20 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns in the postseason to wrap up a season that Diggs thought saw him “utilized to the best of my abilities.” Diggs’ breakout year wouldn’t have happened without quarterback Josh Allen taking a quantum leap forward and Diggs discussed the quarterback during a Thursday appearance on PFT Live.

Diggs said that he heard negative things about Allen’s accuracy before he got to Buffalo, but never saw any sign of it once he arrived and added that he thinks both players can continue growing together now that they have spent some time together.

“I’ve been with so many quarterbacks. No quarterback is perfect, but he’s damn near perfect,” Diggs said. “I’ve seen him miss maybe seven throws the whole season. I never saw the guy they tried to paint him to be. I kinda saw a lot of potential. . . . Getting on the same page early is gonna be huge in his development and my development. Having some success in the league is one thing, but being with a guy you can grow with, work with, and build with, that’s what you really want.”

Allen and Diggs helped bring the Bills more success than they enjoyed in decades. If they can keep rising, the Bills might be able to go even further in 2021.

  1. Diggs is awesome. I shouldn’t have bought the offseason hype that he’d be some kind of issue or bad teammate.

    Everyone keeps saying “just you wait,” but it ain’t happening. Diggs loves Buffalo, Buffalo loves Diggs.

  2. “Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It’s not about winning. It’s about you and your relationship with yourself, your family and your friends. Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didnt let them down because you told them the truth. And that truth is you did everything you could. There wasnt one more thing you could’ve done. Can you live in that moment as best you can, with clear eyes, and love in your heart, with joy in your heart? If you can do that gentleman – you’re perfect!” – Coach Gary Gaines.

    By that I say, Josh Allen is the perfect QB for the Buffalo Bills.

  3. Yeah, well…A lot of people have already decided that they don’t like Diggs or Allen and nothing is going to change their minds.
    They’ll keep waiting for Diggs to become a malcontent in Buffalo and are now looking for any reason to call Allen “dirty” because he flipped a ball at a player one time.
    These are the same people who cheered when the flying monkeys kidnapped Dorothy in the Wizard Of Oz.

  4. Glad Diggs and Allen had success — both are decent guys, particularly Allen. I hope it continues.

  5. Damn near perfect is the legacy of the jills. Good enough to get to the Super Bowl and then choke in the big game. When will these people learn that damn near perfect isn’t damn near good enough?
