What’s in a name? Social media reacts to Jaguars’ Josh Allen sacking, intercepting Bills’ Josh Allen

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense is keeping it surprisingly close against the high-voltage Buffalo Bills.

Josh Allen has played a big part in that.

That’s the Jaguars’ Josh Allen, not to be confused with the Bills’ Josh Allen.

The MVP contender has been kept in check all day, and a couple of second-half interceptions have allowed the Jags to hang around. His second pick of the day led to a Matthew Wright go-ahead field goal to make it 9-6.

On the receiving end of Josh Allen’s interception: Josh Allen.

Allen Iverson is in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, but he doesn’t even think it was his best sport.

The 11-time NBA All-Star told Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay that he would have been a legend if he stayed with football.

“Not being cocky, not being arrogant, I think—no I know—that I would have been a better player in football than I was in basketball,” Iverson said.

Iverson said that football was his “first love,” joking that he probably would have actually lifted weights if he stuck with the sport.

The Virginia native was a two-sport star growing up, leading Bethel High School to a state football championship while being named the Associated Press Player of the Year in both football and basketball.

Bears WR Allen Robinson

The Chicago Bears have done plenty of things right this offseason, including drafting Justin Fields and addressing their offensive line issues. The team has failed in a big way when it comes to its top wide receiver, however.

“Talks have been pretty slow,” NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said about the situation with A-Rob on a July 11 episode of SportsCenter, via Alex Seats of 247 Sports. “They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try

It appears as though Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is down to two options: Play the 2021 season under the $17.8 million franchise tag or hold out. 

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears and Robinson “are not expected to reach a long-term extension.”

On Sunday, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler predicted during an appearance on SportsCenter that Robinson would play out this season on the tag (h/t Alex Seats of 247Sports.com):

“Talks have been pretty slow. There’s a decent chance he plays this year out on the tag, They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try to put up big numbers this year and try to smash free agency in 2022. He’s
