Buffalo has not had a solid quarterback since the days of Jim Kelly. Kelly led the Bills to four straight Super Bowls behind the "k-gun" offense, which were no-huddle shotgun formations. Kelly's unique offensive style culminated to five Pro Bowls and a first-team All-Pro honor in 1991. After Kelly retired in 1996, the Bills have circled everywhere but the wagons in search for a quarterback. Enter Josh Allen...
The Wyoming quarterback has been effective for the Bills, throwing for 1,326 yards (second in the NFL), 12 touchdowns (third) and just one pick. Allen also has a rating of 87.1, good for third in the NFL. Allen seems to be the savior Buffalo has looked for since Kelly.
It helps to have Stefon Diggs on the team, which will give Allen a speedy receiver. But Allen's also completing 70.9% of his passes, a ridiculously good number. Buffalo has been running in circles in search for a quarterback for decades.
Nathan Peterman, Tyrod Taylor, and Brad Johnson are just a few names that faltered with Buffalo. Allen hopes to break that trend and bring Buffalo more than just a great quarterback.
