Stefon Diggs on Josh Allen: 'Please consider him as your MVP because he is mine'


After only one season of playing together, is it possible that Buffalo Bills stars Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs already have the best bromance in the NFL?

If their on-field chemistry is any indication, there's a strong argument to be made. Allen found Diggs a whopping 127 times throughout the regular season, good for tops in the NFL and the sixth highest single-season total in league history. Diggs' 1,535 receiving yards also led the league, and the two of them worked together in perfect harmony to give the Bills' the second highest-scoring offense in the NFL.

But we've also seen their genuine liking for each other in several occurrences off the field, be it in postgame interviews or in other media appearances.

The latest example came when Diggs made an appearance on "Good Morning Football" and had only the highest praise for his quarterback, even considering him his legitimate choice for MVP.

"I feel like I had a different view from everybody," Diggs said (via Nick Shook of "He had an elite year, for me, coming from my perspective, seeing him grind, seeing the time he put in. Of course, he's going to get lost in the traffic a little bit just because of those guys. People love Lamar Jackson, people love Aaron Rodgers, great talents, guys that have been playing some good ball as of a couple years. Aaron Rodgers' whole career he's been playing a hell of a game. He's one of those guys that will definitely go into the Hall of Fame, and my guy will get lost a little bit.

"But he played some elite football and I just want people to appreciate it, appreciate some good quarterback play. Because he had a hell of a year and people are just going to like, don't just forget about him now. He had a hell of a year. Please consider him as your MVP because he is mine."

I agree and disagree with what Diggs said here. I certainly agree that Allen could get lost behind Aaron Rodgers, but, to be fair, how could he not? Rodgers threw for a league-best 48 touchdowns to just five interceptions despite a shaky receiving corps outside of Davante Adams. He's literally the only quarterback ever to throw at least 40 touchdowns with at most five picks. He did this at 37 years old. He's got to be the MVP.

But I disagree that people might forget about the year Allen had, which is what Diggs is trying to prevent from happening. After all, he was elected to the Pro Bowl. He finished with 45 combined touchdowns, spearheaded the dominant offense of the 13-3 Bills, brought them back to postseason glory (until the AFC Championship) and did so much more to completely capture the hearts of the Bills Mafia. There's a reasonable argument to make that Allen is the runner-up to Rodgers in the MVP race, though Patrick Mahomes likely has something to say about that.

What's more, with Diggs in town for at least three more seasons and Allen at the helm of the franchise, his best years still may be ahead.
