Bills QB Josh Allen Addresses 'Closing' Super Bowl Window Narrative

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen isn't paying any mind to the narrative of the team's Super Bowl window closing soon

Throughout the offseason, the narrative of the Buffalo Bills no longer being Super Bowl contenders has become especially prevalent in national media.

Seemingly every week, a new prominent analyst declares that the Bills are past their primes and destined to fail this season. Whether its due to a relatively quiet offseason, their AFC East rivals making big splash moves or some other reason, media figures just don't seem to be as high on Buffalo as previously.

To the Bills themselves, though, those narratives are just that: narratives. In an appearance on "Mad Dog Sports Radio" on Wednesday, star quarterback Josh Allen revealed that he has no interest in what the outside world is saying about his team.

"One thing I do know is it's hard to win in this league, it's hard to win consistently in this league," Allen said, per "But the type of men that we have in this facility, in this locker room, it's a special group. So I don't really hear all that outside noise. I know the type of guys that we have, the energy and the juice that we can bring and how special this team can be."

The Bills have been among the league's elite teams for the past three years, but have struggled to get over the hump in the playoffs. After losing in the AFC Championship Game in 2020, Buffalo has lost in the divisional round in each of the last two years. Still, the Bills boast a very talented roster and can still contend even in a brutal AFC.

To get to that point, though, Allen knows that the Bills must put in the work every single day. 

"It takes every single Sunday, Monday, Thursday," Allen said. "It takes every game day of going out there and putting your best foot forward, taking it one game at a time. Nothing we did last year carries over to this year. You play the games for a reason. Any given Sunday, any team can win, but we're just looking to put our best foot forward one game at a time."

Allen and the Bills begin their quest for their first Lombardi Trophy on Sept. 11, hoping to make a big statement against Aaron Rodgers and the revamped New York Jets.
