Super Bowl-winning center Shaun O’Hara insists he would rather have Josh Allen as a quarterback than Patrick Mahomes ‘every single time’.O’Hara’s comments came in spite of Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Buffalo Bills 27-24 in the playoffs on Sunday night.
It was the third straight time Mahomes and the Chiefs had eliminated the Bills from the post-season.O’Hara began his argument by saying that fans got robbed of seeing more Allen after Bills kicker Tyler Bass missed a field goal that would have likely sent the game into overtime.
‘Regardless of the outcome I’m taking Josh Allen every single time,’ said O’Hara before being asked why he would take Allen over Mahomes’But pure quarterback play is better… You can’t argue that the Chiefs don’t have a better defense right now, better tight end, better running back, better offensive line.
So this is not this is not a disrespect on Mahomes, it’s 1A and 1B right there.’Like I said you can alternate them week to week but Chiefs have the better team. Mahomes has the better team. Josh Allen, he’s still looking for some help.’O’Hara then went on to mention the 70-yard bomb that Allen through to receiver Stefon Diggs, who was unable to haul in the pass
