Love these releases! I think it's about time that we treat Josh Allen as the running QB that he truly is... or at least forced to be right now.
Allen has 490 rushing yards this year, ranking first among all quarterbacks despite missing four games with a right-elbow sprain.
Through his first eight career starts, Allen has amassed 464 rushing yards with five touchdowns.
Vick’s previous mark was 418 yards through his first eight starts.
Allen is averaging 7.4 yards per rush with 54.4 yards per game on the ground.
Allen has stepped up his rushing efforts over the last three weeks, rushing for 335 total yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets.
That figure also breaks Vick’s previous record for rushing yards by a quarterback over a three-game span.
Over his last three games, Allen is averaging 111.7 rushing yards per game for the Bills.
After rushing 13 times for 99 yards in the win over Jacksonville, Allen became the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to rush for 100 yards in consecutive weeks with 135 yards vs. the Dolphins, and 101 yards vs. the Jets.
He is also the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era, and second all-time, to rush for at least 90 yards in three straight weeks, joining Tobin Rote of the Green Bay Packers, who accomplished the feat during the 1951 season.
Personally, I believe with a stat line of 66 attempts for 490 yards and average 7.4 yards per carry, his Tecmo rushing stats shouldn't match Drew Brees' who has 28 attempts for 25 yards.
I'm not asking for a jacked up stat line like Lamar Jackson, because I do believe that Lamar is a better rushing QB overall, so is Newton and Watson.
I feel a fair Tecmo QB Running ability for Allen should sit at 38 Running Speed, 31 Rushing Power, and 44 Maximum Speed.
This matches Mayfield, who I feel is an adequate comparison of youth and offense that relies on the QB to make plays.
Please let me know your thoughts, and I welcome any debates on this.
