Sorry, Josh Allen Should Not Remind Anyone of Ben Roethlisberger

By Jason McIntyre

The NFL regular season has less than 10 days left, and once it ends, we enter the silly season of the NFL Draft. It’s the silly season because nobody knows anything, but everyone pretends to be in the know.

Because so many NFL teams are in dire need of a QB, and because there are plenty of quarterbacks who will be entering the draft, you’re going to hear some silly things.

Basically, anything about Wyoming QB Josh Allen will be silly. Like this!

Why does it have to be Ben Roethlisberger? Why not Logan Thomas, the former Virginia Tech QB?

Ben Roethliseberger (6-foot-5, 240 pounds) at Miami (OH)
Freshman: 63.3% comp, 8.1 ypa, 25 TD, 13 INT
Sophomore: 63.3% comp, 7.6 ypa, 22 TD, 11 INT
Junior: 69.1% comp, 9.1 ypa, 37 TD, 10 INT

Logan Thomas (6-foot-6, 250 pounds) at Virginia Tech
Sophomore: 59.8% comp, 7.7 ypa, 19 TD, 10 INT
Junior: 51.3% comp, 6.9 ypa, 18 TD, 16 INT
Senior: 56.5% comp, 7.2 ypa, 15 TD, 13 INT

Josh Allen (6-foot-5, 233 pounds) at Wyoming
Sophomore: 56% comp, 8.6 ypa, 28 TD, 15 INT
Junior: 56.2% comp, 6.6 ypa, 13 TD, 6 INT

Yes, Josh Allen played in a meaningless Bowl Game and looked sharp in 17 throws against the mighty Central Michigan defense. Get excited, Josh Allen fans.

Mentioning Josh Allen in the same breath of Ben Roethlisberger for any reason is disrespectful to the Steelers future Hall of Fame QB. A much more accurate comp is former Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas, who tantalized scouts with his measureables, was drafted by Arizona, and now plays tight end for the Buffalo Bills.
