At times last season, particularly ancient, Josh Allen seemed dropped, not seeing the whole field, unsure where the rush or coverage was coming out of, and relying on his superior athleticism as opposed to intellect to triumph plays.
At times it worked out great, with Allen looking like one of the most athletic players in the field, running with his feet and drilling strikes with his huge arm.
Occasionally it combusted, with Allen tossing wayward balls supporting targets, not getting during his progress, and also an inefficient offense led.

Allen played an incredibly porous offensive line having an inconsistent run sport along with a corps of subpar recipients that didn’t make his life easier. The Bills have done a marvelous job repairing those problems this offseason — at least on paper to buffer the QB. Maybe the biggest improvement the Bills could make might be involving Allen’s ears.
After an offseason of work outs, running back LeSean McCoy believes we are seeing a better Allen, especially emotionally.
“He seems better,” McCoy told Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News. “I think he seems more confident. I think last year he played off of gift. Occasionally, when quarterbacks are really talented, you miss out how smart they are. Josh is smart.”
The strides Allen has made weren’t lost on his coaching staff, which understands the Bills have no chance in the playoffs without developments from the QB spot.
“I believe Josh is well informed of everything he wants to improve on and that which he does well previously and enhancing those areas too,” coach Sean McDermott told colleagues during minicamp. “So, Josh is a young man that is driven and very in tune and very self-aware to his development, his general development as a young man and as a football player and just how important that is to our business. I have noticed that in the customs that he has mastered since he left in January and once we got back him and what he’s done since this time.”
A Year 1 to Year two leap is possible, or even anticipated, particularly given Allen’s raw talent entering the NFL. Now that he has gotten a year of seasoning under his belt, McCoy considers the big-armed QB will turn the corner.
“Your second and third years pretty much are constantly (better than the first),” McCoy explained. “Maybe not with numbers, but just like with confidence, knowing what to expect, knowing what to look forward to, those type of things. So, I’m all excited to see how he plays this season.”
Allen entered the NFL as epitomizing the old-guard versus analytics discussion QB, the prior loving his size, large arm and athletic skill, while the latter decried his inaccuracy and lack of faculty creation. In Year 1, the signal-caller revealed a bit for all to assert their situation as true. Year 2 could solidify the argument.
