Move The Sticks 360 : Josh Allen Podcast


Recommended Posts

Listened to some of it. I’m starting to be fine if we take him. He may miss some easy throws but I think he’ll be entertaining at the least and really wow us at times. I would just pray he’s consistent. I’d also be scared of him being a total bust but that’s with all the QBs so.....yolo.

Amen.  Every time he takes a 5 or god-forbid 7-step drop, you're going to be holding your breath.  I just hope Robby Anderson can keep his sh-t together long enough to be on the field with this kid if we draft him.  Because if he gets matched up with a slower DB, it's gonna get real interesting, one way or another.

The more you read about allen the more apparent it is why we moved up.  If the jets tried to trade up after his pro day the cost would have gone up.  The jets are going to get a very good prospect, it's allen or Rosen. And i also think the injury concerns and leadership issues with Rosen are somewhat overblown, anyone can get injured, allen had shoulder issues all season.

After watching as many games of his as I could. His footwork is so sloppy because his arm bails him out. 

If he ever nails down the footwork, and continues to develop on some touch throws, he’s going to be great.

Footwork is literally the Hack ‘if he only’, which is what unnerves me about this.

Thanks for the summary. I’m scared of Josh Allen but I really hope he doesn’t end up in buffalo or giants with the off chance he becomes something great. 

Agreed on Buffalo, I think he would probably do well there if they don't rush him.

I think his first year of two of ball might be ugly but long term, I think he's a winner.

For that reason, I don't want to see him with the Giants, they've already got lucky with Manning and his incredible durability.

I get it. However, footwork for Hack improved. His problem was mental. When the bullets fly he was shell shocked from his time at Penn State. I remember the lead up to thag draft Ron Jaworski said that when a player starts fearing the rush from constant pummeling, its almost impossible to overcome, ala David Carr.

OK - I'm voting Josh Allen....here's why:

For those concerned about his 56.3% completion average...over 20 passes.... he completes just .74 more passes ... 11.26 completions versus 12 (that's not even a full completion)...his average goes to 60%....pretty acceptable in the pros.

Then if he completes 2.74 more passes per 20 throws (14 versus 11.26) his average goes to 70% - PRO BOWL. (not yelling here....just adding emphasis). He's that close.

Do we not think that some professional QB coaching, Red Shirting some/all of his first year and better offensive talent around him cannot get him .74 or 2.74 more completions per 20 passes?...especially with some of his current defects that can be corrected?

I'm more concerned with decisions....interceptions to TDs.....Allen's is 16 TD to 6 INTS...Hey I live in Colorado and I can tell you Wyoming is not a magnet for offensive talent....put good talent around him...good coaching and the JETS have a QB that can sling it in the winter (I grew up on LI - North Merrick) when it is hardest....my choice... Allen

Rosen, like him in many respects but sounds too much like Ryan Leaf to me with his attitude....scares the (fill in the blank) out of me. He may be the most pro ready..but does not have the upside of Allen...

Allen is a fraud.

Anyone drafting Allen is drafting hot air, otherwise known as "potential". Not proven performance. No incoming QB with his completion % has ever become a successful starter in the history of the NFL draft . They usually make it as back-ups if they're lucky.

He has a big arm, and an average record at the collegiate level. Anyone who thinks he is worthy of a top 10 pick is kidding themselves. At 1.03, you want a finished product, you want somebody that can start week 1. Allen is a project, at best.

If the NFL draft wasnt such a televised circus, Allen would be a 2nd round pick. He is a product of television.

Sorry - can't agree with this....although your concern is valid....I'd rather have Allen as a Second rounder....

Data point - Brett Farve - college completion rate (1987 to 1990): 

40.7%, 55.8%, 54.1%, 54.5%.....TD to INt are pretty good until his last year....

Or he could be the next Joe Flacco who used his powerful right arm to help the Ravens win the Super bowl. 

Flacco had a strong career in college and knew how to complete a pass. This guy is literally all hype and no substance.

 

He is the least accomplished QB to ever be picked in the first round. I'm not exaggerating here.

Kyle Boller's college stats  over four years in the Pac 10 are scary bad, 47.8% completion rate 108 passer rating. 1.3 touchdowns to interception rate. This is  significantly worse than even Hackenberg's three years in the Big ten 56% completion rate, 121 passer rating. 1.54 touchdowns to interception.

How Brian Billick could rationalise drafting Boller in the first round is a much greater stretch of wishful thinking than even the stupyfying idea of drafting Hackenberg in the second round.

 

For what it's worth, Josh Allen, 56.2 % completion rate,  137.7 rasseer rating and 2.09 touchdowns to interceptions.

Since Buffalo is the team I next follow (went to School there), if he goes there he will end up being something special.

 That should be what it says on the Jets draft card when they run it up…

I think the Bills would love to see him fall to #12. Another Jim Kelly

Gangrene just showed you Kyle Bollers stats that totally dispute what you're saying. Did you miss that post ?

Gotta love hot takes for two players who don’t compare to each other as far as styles go . But I guess every big Arm QB is the same

Except they aren't, in fact, all that different.

Well you have to be an accurate thrower to hit a target, especially a deep 1. Allen is not.

Here's the list of QBs drafted in the past 15 years with a completion % under 57:

Ryan Lindley

Andrew Walter

Derek Anderson

Christian Hackenberg

Kyle Boller

Javon Snead

Joey Harrington

 

You can waste my time and mention Brett Favre, but he wasn't a top 5 pick.

Josh allen is hackenberg with more hype. He is trash. And i'd be surprised if the Jets draft him

You're a total waste of time. :pity_fool:I was quoting you and now you  don't even know what you originally said.  You never said top 5. In fact most of these guys you listed here were NOT top 5 picks. In fact Jevan (you spelled it wrong)Snead  wasn't even drafted. WTF ?  Do you even know what your talking about? Doesn't look like it.

Where did those QB's go to school and what was the talent level of the teams they played on. Completion % w/o context is just as valuable of a stat as shoe size.

The focus here is completion %, and body of work in college. Please try and keep up.

Does taking Wyoming to 2 straight bowl games a feat they haven't done in 3 decades and likely will not do again for another 30 years count as part of the body of work in college?  How about going 8-3 this past season with a supporting cast that lost to San Jose St when was hurt and out of the line-up.  The same San Jose St that won only 1 other game against the mighty Cal Poly a non-major LOL on their way to a 2-11 record.

Apparently that doesn't count. What a knucklehead.
