Buffalo’s search for a franchise quarterback has been long and arduous. Jim Kelly retired 22 years ago. The fanbase barely survived the J.P. Losman and EJ Manuel eras. The team even traded away last year’s starter, Taylor, who helped lead it to the playoffs for the first time since the 1999 campaign.
Unlike the other incoming quarterbacks, Allen isn’t blessed with experienced veterans in front of him or standout skill groups. A legitimate competition is ongoing between AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman to open the season as the Bills’ starter while the coaching staff tries to massage Allen’s maturation. Those alternatives may not last long and the rookie could be forced to start sooner rather than later.
The physical tools are obvious. The 6’5, 237-pound Allen can step in tomorrow and easily make plays. Can he do so on a consistent basis? That’s the hangup and why more pressure will be on him than others to perform once he’s on the field.
The development came as New York state adjourned its legislative session Wednesday without adopting a sports betting bill, leaving Denzel Perryman Jersey its vast population base available for the Meadowlands track, which Gural predicted will quickly become the state’s busiest sports betting outlet.
New York did me such a favor by not passing sports betting, Gural said. That leaves me the entirety of New York City, Long Island, Westchester County. There are 15 million people that live within 20 miles (32 kilometers) of the Meadowlands. They gave me a tremendous gift.
It would be a gift for his New Jersey track, http://www.authenticgrizzliestore.com/Lorenzen_Wright_Jersey anyway; Gural also owns the Tioga Downs track in upstate New York, and was counting on sports betting to help revive it.
New York’s failure to act gives New Jersey at least a short-term advantage: many of the customers expected to place sports bets at the track will come from New York, yet the tax money sports book operators are charged on those http://www.authenticnikechargerstore.com/denzel-perryman-jersey-for-sale-c-14.html bets (9.75 to 13 percent, depending on where and how the bets Womens Lorenzen Wright Jersey are placed) will go to New Jersey.
New Jersey gambling regulators confirmed Gural’s timetable to begin offering sports betting, calling it doable. So far, Monmouth Park racetrack in Oceanport, near the Jersey shore, and Atlantic City’s Borgata casino are the only ones in New Jersey offering sports betting.
