Bills Josh Allen: 'I So Badly Want Super Bowl for Buffalo!' (And What QB's Doing About It)

“I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo.” - Bills QB Josh Allen.

Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott is saying at this week's OTAs that Josh Allen is a "different' Josh Allen.'' And Allen himself is also putting his focus into words ... focus and words that are all about wanting to win Super Bowl 58 for his team.

Said Allen in this week's remarks: “I so badly want to bring a Super Bowl here to Buffalo.”

As an individual player, especially in the regular season, Allen has already shown that desire, with Buffalo reaping the benefits. Last year he was No. 2 among all quarterbacks in touchdowns (35) with a QB rating that was also second (71.4) in the NFL. He totaled 4,283 passing yards with a passing rating of 96.6.

All good stuff. But given Buffalo's back-to-back-to-back ability to win the AFC East, it's not enough ... with last season's Bengals lopsided win at Buffalo being the latest "bad taste'' left.

The Bills quarterback is putting a lot of what must be fixed on his own shoulders, saying, “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.”

Buffalo wants Allen - a leading MVP candidate just as he is - to curtail the risky running and to obviously cut down on turnovers. But Allen at the same time is seeking a "next-level'' effort.

"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,'' Allen said. “I want to give everything that I have for as long as I play.''

And if Josh Allen gives that? Maybe he helps give Buffalo its first-ever Super Bowl win.
