3 key takeaways from Sean McDermott’s season-ending press conference Tuesday

1. How Josh Allen grew in year two and thoughts on his future

Second-year quarterback Josh Allen finished the season passing many milestones as a Buffalo Bill. Allen recorded nine rushing touchdowns which was a franchise best for a quarterback in a single season, it was also the most out of any NFL quarterback in the regular season. Allen also had a +17.1 passer rating increase from 2018 to 2019 which is the highest out of all quarterbacks to start 10 or more games in the last two seasons. Head coach Sean McDermott thinks Allen made a lot of progress in year two but knows there are still things to improve on.

“He’s made a tremendous amount of progress,” McDermott said. “Let’s start there, let’s recognize the work that this young man has put in and the growth that he has shown. Is there still work to do? Yes. He’d be the first to tell you that, that is, in fact that the case. The game did not end the way we wanted it to end. The reason is because we didn’t play well enough in the second half in particular, we scored field goals and we needed touchdowns.”
