Sean McDermott: Josh Allen should be ready to go

NFL: DEC 12 Bills at Buccaneers

It looks like Bills quarterback Josh Allen will be in the starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Panthers.

Allen has been dealing with a sprained foot since last Sunday’s overtime loss to the Buccaneers and he’s been limited in practice this week, which has left open the possibility of the Bills starting Mitchell Trubisky this weekend. Bills head coach Sean McDermott all but closed the door on that during a Friday morning appearance on WGR 550.

McDermott said that Allen will fully participate in the team’s final practice of the week and, via Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com, “should be ready to go” on Sunday.

Allen has not missed a game since his rookie season and it appears his consecutive starts streak will hit 52 games in Week 15.

  1. The offensive line is terrible at run blocking and the defensive line is small. That being said the only reason this roster is 7-6 is a failure at coaching. New England ran all over us because they schemed better, they didn’t necessarily overpower us.

    There is a clear failure to run the ball up the middle yet Daboll is constantly wasting first down after first down with a run for 1-2 yards up the middle. From Guard to Guard we get zero push on inside runs. The offensive play calling has become incredibly bland and predictable. We need to get the short passing game more involved; that doesn’t mean throwing for 2 yards when we need 7.

    There is no changing the roster or beefing up either line this late in the season but the coaching has left lots to be desired. Daboll needs to go and Sean needs to stop coaching so conservatively.

  2. The Jills….still the baby brother of the Pats. New England was a template game. The whole league got to see how to beat the Bills.
    BB to the rest of the league…”you’re welcome”. Coach of the year in a landslide

    ___________________Running 100% of the game is not a template. It’s protecting a weaker armed rookie quarterback in hurricane force winds. They broke one run otherwise were bottled up. We’ll see next game.

  4. LOL @ “the template.”

    Sure, rest of league – just get 40 mph winds, and you might have a chance to beat the Bills if you get a break at the end of the game…..

  5. obviously, not alot of imagination up there in the Buff…The message is…Buffalo cant stop the run….Period. Soft team. Not cut out to win in a street fight, must reply on Allen miracles to make it happen
