    Honestly, I don't think so. I'm stoked they found a way to get a win out of today, but that was a shockingly bad second half of football and coaching. And what was weird was how polar opposite everything was from the first half to the second. Our O-line was doing a nice job on Donald then suddenly he couldn't be blocked. Our defense was doing their usual bend but don't break thing then suddenly they broke repeatedly. Allen's pocket awareness and decision making was brilliant and then it was like he reverted back to old Josh.

    The interception they credited the Rams with was bogus, but it doesn't change the fact that Allen had no right making that throw. Fortunately an equally debatable referee decision ended up helping us win the game. Allen is still way too careless and casual with the football, which is why he fumbles so much. And his desire to squeeze every extra second out of every play in order to make something out of nothing is admirable, but usually very ill advised. He has to learn when to throw it out of bounds and not risk taking the sack or turning the ball over.

    Having said all that, Allen looked great in the first half. Excellent pocket awareness, nice touch on his throws, just solid all around. And, as has been his calling card to this point in his career, he was very poised and confident on the final drive leading his team down the field. The way the Bills played in the first half puts them squarely amongst the elite teams in the NFL. The way they played in the second half gets them eliminated in the wildcard game. They have to decide which team they are moving forward.

    Good breakdown, LA!

    And to Chong’s question, yes, the Bills are legitimate AFC contenders now. They win the games they are supposed to, they come away with wins in big games like this, and after the Chiefs/Ravens you can make the case that they are as good or better than anyone else in the AFC.

    We will go as far as Allen can take us. He’s going to drive us crazy with the hot/cold streaks from quarter to quarter, but we are living in the best years of Bills football since the Marv Levy era. Enjoy the ride boys!

    I have absolutely no complaints about Allen. Give me the QB that tries to do too much, over another captain checkdown.

    On that final drive he had wide open checkdown options on several plays and didn’t even look that way. He’s lucky he has that arm though, can force somethings and some DB’s couldn’t catch his bullet even if he was purposely passing it to them.
