Josh Allen to Jalen Ramsey: ‘Am I still trash?’

New, comments

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey doesn’t shy away from the spotlight or an honest answer — so when GQ’s Clay Skipper asked him his opinion on other NFL quarterbacks, he went so far as to call then Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen “trash” and a “stupid draft pick”.

“I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash,” Ramsey told Clay Skipper of GQ Magazine. “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.”

But then the Bills beat the Jaguars late in the season after Allen completed eight passes for 160 yards and a touchdown.

Now in the offseason, Allen has a simple question for Ramsey — “Am I still trash?”

That’s what he wrote in an autograph recently on a picture of him during the game against the Jaguars.

In answer to your question, Josh. Yes. You completed just over 50 percent of your passes, threw two more interceptions than touchdowns, and averaged 6.4 yards per attempt.
