Allen working on 'eliminating what the defense can't be playing'


Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, along with New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold and New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, will appear on a CBS Sports show called “In the Huddle with Tony Romo” on Sunday, May 24.  

On Thursday, we got a sneak peek of the show with a question Romo posed to each of the quarterbacks: What aspect of the game seemed very difficult when you started in the NFL, but is much easier now? 

After Jones gave his answer, Allen followed with his response, which went more into detail about what he's working on this offseason:

“Going back and watching the good, the bad, and the ugly from last season, and finding out, now that I’m talking with talk to Coach [Ken> Dorsey, and we’re able to do our virtual meetings, and just being able to watch some film and be like, ‘man, why are my eyes in this place? Why did I start to the left side when I knew it was cover-two and I should have started to the right?’ So, trying to find ways to eliminate those and eliminate what the defense can’t be playing, as opposed to trying to find out what they are playing.”

As Sam Darnold, @JoshAllenQB and @Daniel_Jones10 are learning how to improve on the field, they join IN THE HUDDLE WITH @TonyRomo to learn other valuable knowledge of being an NFL quarterback - May 24th at 2:00 PM, ET on CBS.

According to the company’s press release, the show will be hosted by Tracy Wolfson and will feature Romo talking with the three young quarterbacks about the X’s and O’s of the position, the difficulties of preparing for next season in a “virtual offseason” setting, making the leap from being a first-year quarterback to the second year, and second-year to the third, as well as show a different side of their lives on and off the field as an NFL quarterback, and that the network, Romo, and the three players are assisting in the NFL’s COVID-19 relief efforts to support the American Red Cross, CDC Foundation, Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, Salvation Army and United Way.
