Why do many jets fans act so insecure about darnold vs Allen

The next time Josh Allen hits a receiver in the numbers will be the first time. Guys breaking stride for an outside ball, balls thrown at their feet, or wildly over their heads. The guy's accuracy simply isn't there. That's the one aspect of a QB's game that historically never gets fixed. I've said it before, Josh Allen is Jeff George with a better attitude. 

Unfortunately for Bills fans this assessment is correct.

Josh Allen is a great kid, who can make plays running and throwing the ball down the field.  But as we saw with Mark Sanchez, winning games can really mask just how good a QB is.  The Bills are a very well coached team, who have won games with Allen at QB which doesnt mean that Allen is a good QB.

As we saw in the Super Bowl, if you want to make a run in the playoffs you need a QB who can orchestrate game winning drives by throwing the ball and im not sure Allen will ever develop the accuracy and touch to be a consistent enough passer to do that.  Sam has that ability - he has other things to work on, but he has shown he can be an elite passer as far as accuracy and anticipation.

Allen is at 56.3% completion on 781 attempts.  What skews this is the pass attempts.  Sam has 855 career attempts in 26 games while Allen has 781 in 28 regular season games.

Because the Bills are well-coached, run the ball so much and have installed an offense that fits Allens strengths, they have actually limited his attempts which makes his accuracy % even more misleading.
