Summary

Second-year quarterback Josh Allen had an up and down year for the Bills once he took over under center. The things people were worried about--accuracy and decision-making--definitely showed up, but he also showed how dangerous he can be with his legs. His arm-strength was clear as well, and while he missed some downfield, he hit enough to be dangerous. The team will probably stay with a ground-heavy attack, trying to pull the defense off deep routes so Allen will have an easier time getting the ball to his receivers, but they will have to start giving him a deeper playbook to see if he can improve. He needs to show he is more than a set of legs with an inaccurate cannon for an arm. Of course, the question remains as to whether they have done enough to get him weapons to catch the ball and if they haven't, it's going to be hard for him to show improvement. One thing is for sure, he'll rack up the yards on the ground again this year. (May 3)

Bills | Josh Allen improved says Shady McCoy (Wed Jun 26, 12:21 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen has improved, according to RB LeSean McCoy. 'He looks better,' McCoy said. 'I think he looks more confident. I think last year he just played off of talent. Sometimes, when quarterbacks are really talented, you overlook how smart they really are. Josh is smart.'
