Bills QB Josh Allen raves about Brian Daboll
Since his hiring as head coach of the Giants, Brian Daboll has not lacked praise from some of his former players.
Perhaps the most high-profile player to voice his approval of Daboll’s hire is Bills franchise quarterback Josh Allen.
“One, it’s real as they come,” Allen told the Post. “He’s been around the league. He’s rubbed shoulders with some of the best minds in [Nick] Saban and [Bill] Belichick. … He has this extremely competitive nature that relates to his team and his guys. And it makes guys want to play for him, really. And how he conducts himself in the building without keeping things too serious, trying to make things competition-based, I think the guys are really appreciating that.”
In his final two seasons as Buffalo’s offensive coordinator, Daboll led the unit to back-to-back top-5 rankings in points and yards while helping to make Allen one of the best young quarterbacks in the game. the league.
Allen has no doubt Daboll will be able to get the Giants’ offense back on track.
“He’s going to be able to make the most of it,” Allen said. “As I said, the guys want to play for this man. He’s never been away – he talks ball and he thinks ball 24-7. He loves it, he loves it. He likes having a good time, he likes to be around the guys in the squad room and on the pitch making jokes. That’s something I’ve never seen before.”
Many of Allen’s teammates have also spoken highly of Daboll since taking over for the Giants. Stefon Diggs had the best two seasons of his career under Daboll at Buffalo, while Dawson Knox took a big leap into his third year last season. Both expressed their respect for their former offensive coordinator.
“He knows when to get on guys,” Allen said. “He knows when to like guys. That’s part of what makes him so great. that very quickly. He is a very good judge of character.”
