Allen was discussing the team’s penchant for dropping passes this season, though he wasn’t exempting himself. He knows he has struggled as well. He’s tied for second in the league with six drops.

Some have speculated that the high velocity on Herbert’s throws is the reason for the drops, but Allen wasn’t interested in making excuses.

I’ve never been a fan of somebody saying that,” Allen commented. “You gotta catch the ball. If he throws it too hard, go out (to the practice field) and turn the Jugs machine up and get ready to catch the fastballs.

Allen, quién tiene 81 capturas, two touchdowns and nearly 900 yards this season made it clear that a receiver’s job is to catch passes when targeted, regardless of the circumstances – or velocity.

He throwing the ball to you, you better catch that s—,” said Allen. “I want the ball. Throw that motherf—er however you want to throw it.

En otras palabras, just give him the damn ball.
