Josh Allen emerged as one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks of the 2021 season. All of his previous struggles were forgotten as he tore up the league and proved he was worthy of the 7th overall the Buffalo Bills used against him.
While the Bills couldn’t bag the #1 or #2, they still got the #3 and made the divisional round in the playoffs. That was a game where Allen did nothing wrong. He competed in the playoffs with Patrick Mahomes at Arrowhead and likely would have won if the Bills had won the coin toss.
The playoffs didn’t go as he would have liked, but that doesn’t detract from Josh Allen’s illustrious season. He finished the regular season with 4,407 yards, 36 touchdowns, and a 63.3 completion percentage and a 92.2 passer rating. He really made his mark on the NFL.
In fact, he made such a big impression that Chris Simms has nothing but praise for him lately.

Chris Simms praises Josh Allen for his incredible season
At the NFL combine Chris Simms was asked about Josh Allen and he replied with “When you have a guy like Josh Allen he can cover holes every time he steps on the field let alone give the team confidence. That’s where he’s special. That’s why I love him. He’s the best player in football. He has outplayed Patrick Mahomes for the last 2 years. I think those are the top 2 players in the league and if I had to pick one it would be Josh Allen.”
Josh Allen certainly took on Patrick Mahomes in the Divisional round, and maybe this wouldn’t be so hot if the Bills had won the coin toss. It’s possible they did worse for both the Bengals and Rams and won the Super Bowl.
If that had happened, I’m sure a lot of people would call Josh Allen the best player in the NFL. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what he can do in 2022 and see if he lives up to the hype again.
