Bills quarterback Josh Allen did not have a strong statistical season at Wyoming in 2017.
Scouts questioned his accuracy after he completed only 56.2 percent of his passes while playing in the Mountain West. His yards per attempt dropped from 8.6 to 6.7 last season after the team lost several key players, and he wasn’t named first- or second-team all-conference.
Allen was asked Thursday night what his message is to Bills fans who look up his stats.
“Don’t do it,” Allen said. “Don’t look at the stats, trust me. I’d say, watch some game films, watch some of the stuff that I can do. I think very few quarterbacks can do some of the stuff that I can do and I take pride in that.
“Definitely got to learn and trust what my coaches tell me,” Allen added. “I’m going to get in the quarterback room, get with Nate [Peterman], get with AJ [McCarron], [and] try to become the best quarterback, the best teammate, that I can be whether it’s playing right away, whether it’s sitting and really learning from these guys, [that] is what I’m going to do. I just want to help this team win football games.”
