NFL Network’s Josh Allen: Steelers QB Joe Flacco is the most athletic QB on the roster
Josh Allen is the NFL Network analyst who broke the news that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joe Flackey has the most explosive legs on the team.
Flackeys speed is unmatched, Allen told reporters, and he’s already shown that in the preseason.
Flackeys explosiveness, Allen said, is unmatched.
He added that Flacco has the physical tools to be a Pro Bowl QB, and while there are no guarantees on that front, Flacco will be a dominant player in the NFL for a long time.
Allen said he’s a big fan of Flaches ability to play with the best of them.
He’s a former Pro Bowler and has played the position for the past four seasons, but he’s had a down year in terms of his performance this season.
Flacco led the Steelers in passing touchdowns, passing yards, completions, and passer rating in 2016, but it was his struggles in the red zone that caused him to drop off the list of quarterbacks.
While it is possible that Flacks ability to improve as he ages will eventually lead to him becoming a Hall of Fame quarterback, Allen is hoping that Flaco will take another step forward this season and be one of the best players on the Steelers roster.
“I don’t think he has to change anything,” Allen said of Flacco.
“If Joe continues to improve, I think we’ll see him at the top.”
