New Bills WR John Brown Admits QB Josh Allen Might Be Able to Overthrow Him
JC News|March. 14, 2019
If there is anyone alive that can throw a football farther than Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite, it might just be Josh Allen. I'd make a bet that the Wyoming product could throw a football over them mountains.
Newly-acquired Bills receiver John Brown smartly recognized this on Thursday. The 28-year-old has blazing sub-4.4 speed, but you never underestimate how far Allen is gonna chuck that thing.
Brown said Allen is one of the few quarterbacks in the league with enough of a rocket arm to potentially overthrow him.
My advice to Brown: Just keep running. The ball will get there.
For Brown, that will be difficult to get used to. Brown has barely had a chance to run a go-route in Baltimore with Lamar Jackson under center. The offensive strategy from 2018 to 2019 will shift dramatically for the new Buffalo wide receiver.
For Josh Allen, the arm strength has never been the issue. The quarterback going into his second year must develop better accuracy on both his deep balls and intermediate targets.
If Bills fans see significant improvement in that area, the Allen-to-Brown connection will be dynamite for years to come.
