Jets HC retracts comment on ’embarrassing’ Bills QB Josh Allen
The Buffalo Bills (5-5) face a must-win game against the New York Jets (4-5) on Sunday, November 19.
The AFC East rivals faced off again in Week 1, with the Jets unexpectedly defeating Buffalo 26-22. After New York’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6, Jets coach Robert Saleh was feeling himself.
“Through the first six weeks, we played challenging quarterbacks. I know we didn’t get all the wins, but we embarrassed them all. While Saleh’s comment was a bit over the top, the Jets’ defense intercepted quarterback Josh Allen three times in the season opener, and He fumbled twice.
It’s been a rollercoaster season for the Bills since then and the Jets haven’t fared any better. Speaking to reporters on November 17, Saleh was asked about his previous comment about Josh Allen and sang a completely different tune.
“Maybe what was embarrassing was the wrong choice of words in the heat of battle,” Saleh said. “Josh is a phenomenal quarterback. He’s one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the football. Take a lot of pride. He’s a one-man wrecking crew and pretty much Superman on the football field. So tons of respect for him.”
“Everything we do is about Josh. And they’re talented all around him… They have a very talented football team. Josh also punched us in the mouth a few times. So he deserves all the respect he gets.”
The Jets don’t think the Bills’ new OC will have much of an impact
With their playoff hopes dwindling, Bills coach Sean McDermott took the drastic step of firing offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey earlier this week. While McDermott hopes interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady will breathe new energy into their struggling offense, an immediate turnaround is unlikely.
righteous He told reporters on November 15 that the coaching change had little impact on how they prepared for Allen & Co.
“Brady is a very talented young man. From a schematic standpoint, we have our ideas, and I’m not going to get into them here. From a playing standpoint, we have our ideas, and we’re not going to get into them here. Obviously there’s going to be some nuance and some change. You can’t change coordinators unless you You expect something to be different.
“At the same time, if we expect them to reinvent the wheel on such short notice, they are what they are. They are a very talented football team. They are still in the top 10 despite the change of coordinators.
The No. 1 change Allen is looking to make in Week 11 is to stop turning the ball over. This is the main reason Dorsey was fired. He leads the league with 11 interceptions. Crime ranks second in giveaways (18). Allen has 17 career giveaways against New York, the most against any opponent.
Jets safety Jordan Whitehead, who has intercepted Allen four times over the past four years, agrees with Saleh. “It’s our (10th) game.” “You can’t switch too much,” Whitehead told reporters.
“It’s the same coach that was there a few weeks ago. They can’t change the rules of the whole game. There might be a different arrangement of how things are run, but football is football. You read your key and you take it to the play.”
Josh Allen is focused on beating the Jets
Josh Allen looked very depressed Speaking to reporters After Dorsey was fired. However, the 27-year-old knows whether or not Buffalo wants to reach the postseason. He should Beat the planes
“The reality is we’re 5-5 and our back is against the wall,” Allen said. “The clock is ticking on what we can do this season, and we’ll start on Sunday to try to turn that around. It’s no secret in terms of the number of wins you probably need to get to the playoffs, we don’t have more wiggle room.”
“So, we understand that. But again, we can’t focus on next week or the week after and we can’t focus on the end of the season. We have to focus on the here and now and that’s Sunday.”
