Brett Favre has feelings about Josh Allen.
After Buffalo BillsStarting 4-0 this season, Favre stated that he was not surprised by the midfielder’s fine start. He went on to predict that Allen would run AFC East in the future.
“I’m not surprised by Josh Allen’s success,” Favre said in October. “Speaking of Josh Allen, he looks amazing. He can swing it. He can move, for a big man he can really move. We saw that with him the last few years but what we see now is him taking it to the next level. He won the match. He exclaims the game itself week after week. For Buffalo fans and the organization, that’s what you’ve been waiting for and you’ve got it. “
“The timing is now and I think it will last quite a while,” added Favre. “I think Josh Allen will be the new Tom Brady, you know, at some point in time he’s going to run the division. I believe it.”
Time will tell if Allen ends up running the division, but he’s started pretty well this season.
Allen led the Bills to a regular season record 13-3 and set the MVP-type number in his third season with the Bills. Now, the Bills quarterback has a team at the top of the Super Bowl. Standing in the way of Allen is Patrick Mahomes and the defending Super Bowl champion.
For Mahomes, the AFC Championship is just another game at the moment. Sunday night will mark Mahomes’ third consecutive appearance in the game for as long as he has been allowed to play. The midfielder and team failed in their first appearance, a 37-31 defeat to the New England Patriots, but bounced back last year in a 35-24 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Allen, of course, is entering his first AFC Championship, but Favre is confident it will be the first of many.
During the weekly SiriusXM Blitz radio show, Favre noted saying that he expects Sunday to be the start of more games to come.
“This is really exciting,” said Favre of appearing at the conference championship for the first time. “You know, I don’t know what’s going to happen in this match, but the fact that he’s there and the teams are there, it’s a special time. But I think, like with Josh, this is the beginning of my belief that much more is to come. … But this guy can do everything and has secretly slipped and that’s good. I mean, that guy is just, you know, he’s the best nameless player out there, and you know I mean there’s no disrespect by that. But he’s kind of overshadowed by all these people, but I love watching him play, man. He’s a competitor. Big, big and strong man. “
Before anyone got annoyed by Favre’s “anonymous” comments, he meant Allen being overshadowed by Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. The last two are the first definite voting hall for farmers and there is already discussion about whether Mahomes will surpass the two quarterbacks and eventually be recognized as the greatest QB of all time. In this respect, Allen has slipped up the ladder of success in the position and now remains beside the greats.
Bills fans can only hope that the first time will be a charm for Allen and this Buffalo team at the AFC Championship, but as Favre mentions, there’s a good chance this is the first of many Allen and the Bills appearances at a conference championship.
