Nobody can question Allen’s athletic ability. He proved last year that he is among the best dual threat gunslingers in the NFL, finishing the season with over 500 yards on the ground. Only Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray had more rushing yards from the quarterback position.
Allen also has one of the strongest arms in the league, giving him the ability to make any throw that’s required of him. But, his unreal arm strength doesn’t necessarily translate to accuracy, as he only completed 58.3% of his passes in 2020.
Although he’s entering just his third season in the pros, this season will be telling for Josh Allen. He’ll have the best supporting cast around him that he’s had so far in the NFL, mostly because of the addition of Pro Bowl wideout Stefon Diggs.
After taking the Bills to the playoffs for just the second time since 2000 last year, expectations will naturally be higher heading into 2020. Not only because the team improved on paper this offseason, but also because the division is as wide open as it’s ever been now that Tom Brady is no longer in New England.
From top to bottom, the Bills have all the pieces needed to make a serious playoff run this year. Not only will Allen have another great wideout at his disposal, the natural development of running back Devin Singletary will also be huge. Leaning on the run game is any quarterback’s best friend.
Head coach Sean McDermott already has one of the best defenses in the league, as they finished third in the NFL last year in total defense.
The success of this team will be determined by Allen. If he can step up to the occasion and correct some of his accuracy/decision making issues, the Bills will be among the best teams in the entire league next year.
