Kurt Warner picks Justin Herbert over Bills’ Josh Allen as QB for next 10 years
NFL analyst Kurt Warner delivered a hypothetical hot take as he leaned on going with Los Angeles Chargers gunslinger Justin Herbert instead of Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen for the next 10 years, in a pre-game video by the NFL.
A few years removed from a decorated playing career, Warner still knows what he’s talking about even with his rather unpopular opinion. He backed his decision as he raved over Herbert’s composure, not being fazed by the competition in the big leagues despite still being in his first season in the league.
Although his contributions haven’t been translating into wins for the Chargers as of late, Justin Herbert has shown flashes of potential that could develop even more as he spends more time getting used to the competition in the league. On the other hand, Josh Allen has evidently improved since entering the NFL back in 2018.
He has taken over as the Bills’ franchise quarterback and is generating monster performances through Week 11 of the season. His better play under center will most likely help him to exceed his 3,089 passing yards and 271 completions from last season.
Unlike Herbert, Josh Allen has already found himself in a competitive team that is bound to make the playoffs for the second-straight season. The Bills previously entered the 2019 postseason but ultimately succumbed to the Houston Texans in the opening-round proceedings.
Only time can tell whether Herbert will indeed be better than Allen 10 years from now. At the end of the day, the two quarterbacks still have a lot of football ahead of them that will help them strengthen their case as the better gunslinger over the other.
