Jalen Ramsey Stands By Comments That Bills QB Josh Allen is “Trash”
The Buffalo Bills are set to face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with QB Josh Allen back in the lineup. That means there’s an opportunity to revisit Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s offseason comments about Allen.
During an in depth interview with GQ back in August, Ramsey weighed in on just about every quarterback in the league, stating that the Buffalo Bills QB was “trash” and that he was “excited as hell” to see that the Bills were on this year’s schedule.
“I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that.✞ He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better? He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.”
After Ramsey’s message, Allen said in August that he didn’t care.
Fast forward to Tuesday and the all-pro cornerback doubled-down on his comments.
“Everybody who knows me knows why I was so hard on him,” Ramsey said, via ESPN.com. “If you don’t know me, that’s on you. If y’all look deep into it, y’all can figure out why I was so harsh.”
Now the two are scheduled to meet for the first time in their NFL careers in Week 12.
