Josh Allen’s performances with the Buffalo Bills were far from outstanding when he initially started playing.
But since then, he has significantly improved in practically every area, to the point where he is now regarded as a top quarterback and a consistent MVP contender.
Nick Wright, a sports analyst, disagrees that should be the case.
The Fox anchor repeatedly emphasized how overrated Allen is during a recent episode of First Things First.
Josh Allen’s Passer Rating:
2022: 96.6 | 8th
2021: 92.2 | 16th
2020: 107.2 | 4th
2019: 85.3 | 24th
2018: 67.9 | 32nd

Wright argued that Allen’s ranking as the third-best quarterback in the league after Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes is only a result of the media. He supported this assertion by pointing out that Allen’s quarterback ratings are not particularly high.
Allen is undoubtedly one of the greatest in everything, even though he may not be the best quarterback in anything.
He possesses one of the strongest arms in the game, is powerful and quick, can gain his yards on the ground, and can extend plays outside of the pocket.
He’s still one of the best in the league, but the Bills have been constant contenders, and one might argue that part of the regression they had last year was caused by his inadequacies in crucial stretches.
There is more skill in the league now than there has ever been, and at least five different quarterbacks might be argued to be the third-best in the league.
