Allen to Start Against Bengals

Josh Allen will start as quarterback in Sundays preseason game versus the Bengals.  The Bills first round pick worked out with the first team offense yesterday.  The announcement was made amid news that AJ McCarron did not fracture his collarbone and is expected to return to action soon.  COACH McDERMOTT IS MAKING A COLOSSAL GAMBLE IN STARTING THE ROOKIE.  HE HAS HAD A GOOD CAMP AND PRESEASON.  TRUSTING HE IS UP TO THE CHALLENGE AT HAND, WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AS 1BUFFALO.

AJ McCarrons medical tests are inconclusive after reportedly breaking his collarbone in the Browns game.  He sat out yesterdays practice while the doctors evaluate his condition.  That leaves Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen as the healthy quarterbacks.  McCARRON HAD A STANDOUT COLLEGE CAREER, LEADING ALABAMA TO 2 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS.  HE RECEIVED THE MAXWELL AWARD AND WAS SECOND IN HEISMAN VOTING.  HOPING HE WILL SOON BE BACK IN ACTION, WE AWAIT WORD AS 1BUFFALO.

Josh Allen should be given the chance to start in the upcoming preseason game versus the Bengals.  AJ McCarrons shoulder injury will likely sideline him for at least a month.  Only Nathan Peterman remains on the depth chart along with the talented rookie.  ALLEN MAY WELL BE THRUST INTO THE STARTING ROLE MUCH SOONER THAN EXPECTED.  HE HAS DEMONSTRATED UNCOMMON MATURITY AND ABILITY AND IS UP TO THE TASK.  PINNING OUR HOPES ON THE TOP 7 DRAFT PICK, WE CLOSE RANKS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills were victorious over the Browns 19 – 17 in last evenings preseason matchup.  The win came at a price as AJ McCarron suffered a broken collarbone and left the game in the second quarter.  He was replaced by Josh Allen who led an 80 yard scoring drive.  On the night he was 9 of 13 for 60 yards.  Nathan Peterman took over in the second half, completing a 35 yard touchdown pass to Nick O’Leary.  McCARRONS INJURY MAY THRUST ALLEN INTO THE STARTING POSITION SOONER THAN EXPECTED.  THE ROOKIE SENSATION DEMONSTRATED POISE AND MATURITY.  HOPING FOR THE BEST IN THE MIDST OF ADVERSITY, WE REGROUP AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills will meet the Browns tonight on the road in Cleveland.  The second preseason game will match Tyrod Taylor against his former teammates.  Corey Coleman will be in uniform for the Bills following his trade last week from the Browns.  THE CENTRAL QUESTION IS WHO WILL BE THE STARTING QUARTERBACK.  ALL 3 CONTENDERS HAVE PLAYED WELL AND WILL BE LOOKING TO DISTINGUISH THEMSELVES.  LOOKING FORWARD TO A REMATCH OF THE BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE, WE AWAIT KICKOFF AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills closed training camp yesterday and have returned to Orchard Park.  After 3 weeks of practice at St. John Fisher College they are now back on home turf.  Attention turns to preparations for tomorrows game in Cleveland.  THE TEAM BROKE CAMP WITHOUT A CLEAR CUT SOLUTION TO THE QUARTERBACK DILEMMA.  ALL 3 CONTENDERS REMAIN IN THE RUNNING TO START IN THE REGULAR SEASON OPENER AGAINST BALTIMORE.  ENERGIZED AS THE COMPETITION HEATS UP, WE SUPPORT OUR GUYS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are preparing to meet the Browns on Friday in Cleveland.  The second preseason game will showcase the quarterback rivalry.  Tyrod Taylor will meet his former teammates while the Bills play their 3 signal callers.  THE COMPETITION FOR STARTER IS INTENSIFYING.  PETERMAN AND McCARRON ARE NECK TO NECK FOLLOWING STRONG PERFORMANCES AGAINST CAROLINA.  ALLEN WILL LIKELY SEE ACTION IN THE SECOND HALF.  ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS AS 1BUFFALO.

LeSean McCoy is being sued by his former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.  She alleges he failed to protect her during last months break-in at his Georgia home.  Cordon was beaten and bloodied during the attack.  THE LEAGUE IS INVESTIGATING McCOYS POTENTIAL INVOLVEMENT IN THE INCIDENT.  IF CHARGED HE COULD BE BARRED FROM PRACTICE AND PLAY.  LOOKING FOR JUSTICE TO BE SERVED, WE ARE GUARDED AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have signed defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker.  The 7 year veteran played last season for the Rams and has 85 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 58 career games.  He earlier was with the Saints and Lions.  To make room on the roster the Bills released DT John Hughes.  THE ADDITION OF WALKER ADDS DEPTH TO THE DEFENSE.  EXPECT THE BILLS TO CONTINUE THE PERSONNEL SHUFFLING AS CAMP ENTERS THE HOME STRETCH.  ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, WE WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES AS 1BUFFALO.

Coach Sean McDermott says he will take a calculated approach to Josh Allen.  The star rookie needs to be nurtured slowly.  Meanwhile Nathan Peterman and AJ McCarron are viable potential starters while Allen is being groomed.  JOSH HAS A RARE COMBINATION OF ATHLETICISM, MOBILITY, AND EXPLOSIVE THROWING ARM.  HE IS A GOOD LISTENER WHO CONNECTS WELL WITH HIS TEAMMATES.  CONTENT WITH THE COACH’S INCREMENTAL PROGRAM, WE NOD APPROVAL AS 1BUFFALO.
