Bills starting safety Jordan Poyer has spoken out against ESPN analyst Domonique Foxworth and his admitted bias against Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen because Allen supporters post American flags, dogs and skull & crossbones on their social media pages.
Foxworth admitted to the bias on a recent appearance on the Bomani Jones podcast where he made it clear he gets happy whenever Allen fails because of what Allen’s supporters post.
“I am fully aware that I have biases. And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen. I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed,” Foxworth said.
“It’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skulls and crossbones. … If you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes. … It’s not about Josh,” he concluded.
“Generally, I’m pro-player and I’m looking for ways to understand a player’s position and defend a player. But in Josh’s case, it’s not about him. He is the ground on which we are fighting.”

Foxworth has remained silent on the subject, even as Bills fans have now been joined by Bills players in calling him out. Bills offensive lineman Jonathan Feliciano backed up Poyer and reminded Foxworth how Bills fans donated more than $700,000 to a children’s hospital in honor of Allen’s grandmother who passed away in November.
