Officially a Buffalo Bill! #billsmafia

Plenty of football fans were rock hard watching Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen make his debut last week. Sure, he was only 9-of-19 throwing the ball, but no one really gives a damn when he’s slinging the ball 80 yards like it’s no big deal.

That being said, not everyone is sold on the Allen hype. Most notably Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who unloaded on the “trash” product out of Wyoming — and plenty of others — in a classic interview with GQ:

I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that. He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better? He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.

Allen was asked about Ramsey’s take on him by media Wednesday — he was expectedly cliche and boring:

“He’s not on my team. He’s not my teammate. It don’t bother me. I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me one bit. I care about my teammates, what my teammates think of me. When I step on the field ultimately I’m trying to win football games. Trying to be the best quarterback for this team.”

The date everyone is now circling is November 25, when the Jaguars travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills. Allen may or may not be starting by then, who knows.

Allen shouldn’t take it personally… Ramsey only respects like 10 quarterbacks:
