Bills Want Josh Allen to Improve Short Passing Game

Published

on

Buffalo Bills quarerback Josh Allen just wrapped up his rookie season and the team already knows what they want their young signal caller to work on this offseason.

Improving his short passing game.

“We love his aggressiveness,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said, according to Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News.

“He thinks he can make any throw, and he can physically, but sometimes that’s not the smart play. I think that’s what Josh is learning. That’s natural. He’s so competitive that he wants to pick up that first down now, and sometimes it’s OK to take the swing pass for 5 yards and get it to second and 5, instead of a harder throw 18 yards down the field in a tight window that has a 50-50 chance and now it’s second and 10.”

Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll believes that Allen needs to approach the game by taking what the defensive gives him, at times.

“People are playing Josh a little bit different than they play some other people, whether it’s a deeper safety, the corners bailing off,” Daboll said.

“I think we can help ourselves, too, by taking what they give us on some of those verticals.”

Chiefs’ Tyrann Mathieu Says Defense Has Challenge Ahead of Them

Published

Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu is confident in what his new team can do in 2019, but says that the defense as a challenge ahead of them.

Mathieu knows just how much the defense struggled, consistently getting lit up despite the immense production from the Chief’s offense thanks to the breakout play of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mathieu is hoping to provide a spark at the safety position, something that has been missing in recent seasons.

“I think we’ve got a great challenge ahead,” Mathieu said, according to Pete Grathoff of the Kansas City Star.

“I told our group, ‘This is going to be a tough hill to climb, especially where those guys were last year.’ They brought myself and Frank Clark in, and I think anytime you can bring two guys in that really have a chip on their shoulders, an edge, a certain personality, you can rub off on a lot of guys in a positive way. I think that’s why they brought me in, Kansas City, for one was to really kind of raise the tide of everybody around me, and so it’s going to be a fun season.”
