It's never fun to have your ex break up with you then quickly grow happy in another relationship. Minnesota Vikings fans likely know that better than anyone right now. After Josh Allen shared some comments on his new teammate Stefon Diggs, Vikings fans have every right to be upset.
Wide receiver Stefon Diggs pushed to force his way out of Minnesota throughout 2019, doing everything from missing practices to sending out cryptic tweets to seemingly strain the relationship before demaning a trade. Now, as he settles in to his new job on the Buffalo Bills, quarterback Josh Allen had nothing but good things to say about him.
That's a sharp turnaround for Diggs, who was missing practices last season, and overall did not make it seem like he wanted to be playing for the Vikings. Seeing his lack of effort turn around into hard work for the Bills must sting for Minnesota fans.
Diggs is one of the most talented receivers in the game. He totaled over 1,000 yards in both 2018 and 2019 and was supposed to be a huge part of the Vikings' plans going forward. Instead, he's now in Buffalo on an up-and-coming Bills team.
On the flip side, Vikings fans should be mad at the organization for not making this relationship work. It's clear Diggs is a competitor and feels strongly about his role and impact on the game, and the fact he couldn't be more of a focal point in the offense seems like malpractice on the part of the Vikings' management and coaching staff.
