    Probably better for him to do it in the preseason than to not, so that he can feel some sting and shame now when it doesn't matter. Two more turnovers weren't his fault....and yet the Bills still won, and the later strings only had a 3 point better differential than their counterparts than the starters(Josh included) did, and it would have been equal if not for an EPIC 61 yd fg by Prater. Allen could still end up sucking, but this is a bit quick to judge the young QB on, in my opinion. Carry on.

Here are some nuggets of my football knowledge:• We should have paid more than the Jets for pick #3 in the 2018 draft, since there will be no chance that we can draft Josh Rosen now.• The sky is falling - we lost Mike Gillislee.• Scott Chandler is going to blow up playing with Gronk.• Chris Hogan is going to blow up playing with Brady.• Tyrod Taylor will set the league on fire.

    I agree that it's a rookie type mistake, but I dont want a gunshy qb. Let him take his lumps, Favre threw a shit ton of picks as well...but he was also a HOFer. Let the kid develop. The passing did not look good last night against a top 10 defense, they ARE still playing vanilla schemes. Let's hope come opening day, Daboll and co produce a winning product with Allen and co.

    You rave about Barkley and his instincts when he has thrown 10 career TD's and 18 career INT's.

    As an elite athlete you don't grow up playing any sport without picking up bad habits along the way. Something that you had the strength or speed to do as you were growing up competing against lesser talent, may no longer be possible against better talent as you progress through the ranks. These are nothing more than habits, and they will be fixed as he gets better at reading defenses.

    Allen has played on some bad teams where he had to do most of the heavy lifting in order to be successful. In those types of situations, mistakes happen and bad habits can can be picked up and probably were. Eventually the entire Bill's offense will get in sync, and you will be forced to look for something else to complain about because that's your bad instinct.

    Coaches are there to help identify, and help remove bad habits. And yes, Allen has some bad habits that need to be fixed. However, he's a hard worker, says all the right things and wants to win. I like this kid and want to see him become successful. I can't say that about Rosen.

    Instincts are where you instinctively know that this girl is no good, but you date her anyway because she looks good in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. It's a bad habit when you continually date women like this ... but a lot of fun.

    It was an ugly throw, but his post game made me feel better (prefacing), ‘one play in particular, it’s just something I can’t do and we got bailed out. We came out trying to establish the run and I wanted to take a shot (throwing) and I shouldn’t have.’

    I think we should pump the brakes on who’s right and who’s wrong. He threw six times, first three attempts were bad, last three good. The goal was to test the run, it was preseason and he got impatient—and hopefully—learned from it.

    Somebody needs to re-read the definition for “instinct”.

    LOL.

    That's cute, but no.

    Josh Allen has been training with College and Professional coaches for 4 years now.

    Habits would be gone by now.

    This is instinct.

    I’m still waiting to hear Allen’s stats from the Carolina game. Fitting that you are ignoring it...

    I dont even remember. A little worse than Barkley if I remember right.
