Bills’ Sean McDermott: ‘I’ve seen a different Josh’ Allen this offseason
Look for a new Josh Allen in 2023.
It’s said he has already arrived.
Throughout this offseason, Allen has made a few particular comments. He’s referenced taking less hits because he’s no longer a young player…at the ripe old age of 27…
Allen’s also noted he’s made efforts in the past to give his all for the Buffalo Bills and work every day to reach his goals, but now it’s different. There’s that little extra something Allen is trying to put forth.
Even his head coach thinks so.
From OTAs, Sean McDermott said that even though it’s still a very long time until the start of the 2023 season, the QB is showing some new signs.
“I’ve seen a different Josh this offseason, not that it was bad before, but he’s got a new sense of focus and determination, which is good,” McDermott said via video conference.
In terms of specifics, even Allen couldn’t fully explain it. But he did his best.
“Just understanding our window, and I want to give everything that I have for as long as I play,” Allen said via video conference. “I’m not saying that I haven’t done that in the past, but there’s always new ways that I can find to get better and not being complacent with what I’m doing on the field.
“Statistically you look at it, we were a top 3-4 offense in the league last year, and it wasn’t good enough. So, just losing the playoffs isn’t fun, you know? Allen continued. “I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo, and I just don’t want anything to get in the way of allowing me to be the best quarterback that I can be for this team.”
That’s music to Buffalo’s collective ears.
