Despite being considered one of the top five quarterbacks in the NFL, Josh Allen is still missing one thing: A Super Bowl ring.
Although Allen has been close these past few years, the realization for him is that window may be slowly closing as he sees the emergence of players like Joe Burrow, and now with the Jets signing Aaron Rodgers, it is becoming harder for the Buffalo Bills to make it the Super Bowl.
Even though it’s been months since the Bills lost in the playoffs, Allen is still mourning the loss and thinking about what could have been for his team.
“I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo,” Allen said Tuesday, via Alaina Getzenberg of 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.”
Back in the ’90s, the Bills made the Super Bowl four times in a row but never won it. Allen says he is more focused than ever before to lead his team to the Super Bowl.
“I want to give everything that I have for as long as I play,” Allen said. “I’m not saying that I haven’t done that in the past, but there’s always new ways that I can find to get better, and not being complacent with what I’m doing on the field, understanding that there’s a lot of plays that we left out there. And you know, statistically, you look at it, we were top three, four [in] offense in the league last year, and it wasn’t good enough. So, just losing the playoffs isn’t fun, you know?”
It will be interesting to see if Allen’s hard work this offseason will finally playoff.
