Jacksonville’s Jalen Ramsey isn’t shy when it comes to talking trash. He set his sights on Josh Allen this offseason during an interview, calling the rookie quarterback “trash”
Allen was asked about it all week and he continues to shrug it off.
“How I deal with that is I don’t deal with it. It doesn’t matter to me,” the quarterback said. “Everybody’s got their own opinion. I’ll say it over and over again: the only people I care about [and] their opinion is this team, the people in this franchise and organization, how they view me as a person and as a football player.”
The bills locker room believes Allen will use it as to fuel his fire.
“I know the type of player Josh is,” safety Jordan Poyer said. “And shove it in his face. I hope josh takes that approach.”
Now keep in mind— Jordan is a fellow defensive back— and says talking trash is part of playing that position.
“As a DB you have to have the most confidence out there, playing with confidence, playing with swag,” he said
“He’s going to say what he’s going to say. That happen,” head coach Sean McDermott said of Ramsey’s comments. “There are a lot of things that happen week-to-week in this league. Look, he’s a great player. At the end of the day, the game will get played on Sunday and we’re going to try to put our best foot forward.”
So, how would Allen rate his own trash talk?
“I wouldn’t say it’s great. I stand back, and I throw the ball. I don’t get to do a whole lot of things,” he joked. “Yeah, it’s not great, but I can give it to some of them. Like LeSean, I can give it to LeSean quite a bit. He hears it from me sometimes.”
