Jalen Ramsey

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen had one of the better games of his NFL career on Thursday night against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, completing 83.9 percent of his passes while also leading the team in rushing during the 31-10 victory. His performance was so stellar it has the NFL world absolutely blasting an old opinion from Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Following Allen’s strong performance against Ramsey and the Rams, Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus resurfaced a five-year-old quote from Ramsey where he called Allen “trash” and “a stupid draft pick.”

Here’s the full quote from Allen, according to Meirov:

“I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that.? He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: ‘Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better?’ He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.”

Naturally, the bad opinion caught the attention of the NFL world.

To be fair to Ramsey, Allen has improved drastically since joining the league. Still, the star cornerback has to be held responsible for such an incorrect take.
