Colin Cowherd: “The comp is pretty interesting. It’s a guy that we all love but we’re not quite honest about yet, Josh Allen, quarterback of the Bills. It’s ridiculous to deny what both are. Josh is wildly talented, but he’s not as consistently and situationally excellent as Joe Burrow or Patrick Mahomes, period, full stop. He’s NOT. Tatum, he’s fantastic, but he’s not Curry— consistently for eight years a big shot guy. Doesn’t mean Curry didn’t have bad games, but he’s not a Michael, he’s not that aggressive, it’s not what he is. He doesn’t shrink a lot but I don’t want to hear about guys having a great game. Josh Allen can throw for 7,000 yards against the Houston Texans. What is he against the Chiefs? What is he against the Bengals? Jayson Tatum needs to be judged on last night (Game 2) more than the team that quit.” (Full Segment Above)

Check out the segment above as Colin explains why he’s been down on Tatum these playoffs, saying he’s one of those stars who can light you up for 40 at the drop of a hat, but also a guy who always seems to shrink when his team needs him the most.
