Josh Allen is getting ready to start Year 6 with the Buffalo Bills, and this offseason, something is a littel bit different.
Last year, although Allen ended up with some great numbers, wasn't exactly chock full of bright moments. Allen was criticized for his turnovers, after leading the league in that category. Even Brandon Beane acknowledged that area as a spot Allen must notably improve.
Now, as OTAs have gotten underway, Allen has come more ready than ever. His teammates and coaches have noticed a difference in him. Whether it's his work ethic, focus, or his leadership, all of those things have been noticed by those around him.
Specifically, veteran pass rusher Von Miller told the media this week just how much he's seen in his quarterback.
Amidst the team's initial OTA practices, Miller has noticed something different in his quarterback.
Von Miller knows this is an important year for Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills
"Those other quarterbacks that win a Super Bowl, [Mahomes] got two Super Bowls. Like Josh Allen, he wants the same s---," Miller said.
"I see it in his eyes. He knows he can do it. And every time he comes out here, that is the No. 1 thing, to go out here and compete and win a Super Bowl."
While Beane said he doesn't see this year as a 'Super Bowl or bust' type of campaign earlier this offseason, Allen seems to think otherwise. Fans should be appreciative of that mindset, too, because this organization has been starved of a Lombardi Trophy since its birth.
"I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo," Allen said on Tuesday, per ESPN, "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."
The focus seems to be there for the sixth-year pro, and Bills fans should be eager to watch him go on to have, hopefully, a career year in 2023. He should be better protected. He might even get another All Pro weapon sooner or later, but that's a story for another day.
