Josh Allen says Bills are ‘looking to build something special’
The Buffalo Bills may have had a rough go of it during Josh Allen’s rookie season under center this past year, but the quarterback believes that the Bills are in the process of building something that will last:
“We’re looking to build something special,” said Allen, according to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News. “We’re looking to go back to the playoffs and develop a sustainable success in Buffalo. And that’s what we want to do. That’s what the city deserves.”
Allen also says that in spite of the fact that the Bills are a very young team, there is a great leadership on the roster and that the guys have great relationships with one another in general:
“I do. If you look at it, we’re a relatively young team,” said Allen when asked if he feels good about the Bills’ core leadership. “I think there’s some stat about us being the third-youngest team that played, whatever it was. With that being said, the leadership that we have on this team, the relationships that have been built, the trust that has been built throughout the season this past season, it’s going in the right direction. One, we trust Coach (Sean) McDermott. We trust our front office and we trust Coach (Brian) Daboll on the offensive side of the football.”
Allen threw for 2,074 yards, 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 11 starts this past season, completing 52.8 percent of his passes while registering a passer rating of 67.9.
Buffalo chose Allen with the seventh overall pick of the NFL Draft last spring.
The Bills went just 6-10 in 2018.
