    TBP 262: Ghost of Rex Ryan Has Infiltrated The Bills Defense

    TBP 262: Ghost of Rex Ryan Has Infiltrated The Bills Defense

    On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick is joined by friend and recurring guest Joe from NYC for a discussion littered with strong takes on the heels of the Buffalo Bills first loss of the season this past Tuesday night in Tennessee to the undefeated Titans.

    Uncertainty surrounded the game happening from last week all the way through up to game day Tuesday as Covid ran rampant through the Titans organization over the past two weeks.  However, despite the Titans practicing just twice over the past two weeks it was the Bills who often looked completely out of sorts.   Patrick and Joe try to make sense of exactly why as the Titans clearly dominated in all three phases of the game as well as coaching and preparation.

    The guys spend a bunch of time bewildered about the Bills defense continuing to falter through five weeks of the 2020 season. They discuss Tremaine Edmunds doing what Patrick considers a pretty lousy job at middle linebacker and how much his injury or who’s playing in front of him is factoring in. They also discuss the ineffectiveness of the defensive line at generating sacks and pressure on quarterbacks, particularly Jerry Hughes, who is sackless and has just one tackle for a loss through five games.

    On the offensive side of the balls the guys agree that John Brown was missed significantly more than they thought he’d be.  They also have takes on Devin Singletary, TJ Yeldon and if just one game does anything to diminish what Josh Allen has done so far this season.

    They also a few minutes discussing the professional wrestling business slipping further into irrelevancy, bad NFL analysts, Patrick looking forward to Troy Aikman coming to Buffalo next week and the reaction from a surprised Joe as he learns about an upcoming election podcast he’ll be a part of.

    TBP 261: Matt Parrino, Buffalo Bills Reporter

    TBP 261: Matt Parrino, Buffalo Bills Reporter

    On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran catches up with Buffalo Bills beat reporter and accomplished podcaster, recurring guest Matt Parrino about a wide range of topics including how things have been over the past six months, the evolution of his podcast that’s become quite successful, the Buffalo Bills, Lebron vs Jordan, the public demise of Marc Miller and much more.

    Matt’s been a favorite guest of the podcast several times previously including live shows done over wings at Audubon North and Casey’s in Black Rock.  However, Matt hasn’t been on the podcast since back on episode No. 210 back in early April and Patrick spends time learning how life’s been for Matt during these weird and often trying times, including a discussion of how radically different the job of being a NFL team beat reporter has changed in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.  That ranges from regular team coverage to interview as well as overall team access and Matt pulls back the curtain a little bit on what it’s been like.

    They also spend time talking about the Shout Buffalo Football podcast Matt has started with his “tag team” partner at NYup.com, Ryan Talbot.  In less than six months the podcast has already grown by leaps and bounds especially on the video side, where their regular livestream shows often generate at least a few thousand people watching live on various platforms.  Matt describes the decision that went into the podcast, the process of how it’s done and reveals a few of his favorite episodes and guests he’s had on to this point.

    Of course, they also spend time discussing the Buffalo Bills, including their surprisingly (mostly) dominant opening month, Josh Allen’s emergence as a legitimate early season league MVP candidate, the struggles of the defense, injuries and concerns about the team competing against the Covid infested Tennessee Titans on Tuesday night.

    You can follow Matt on Twitter @MattParrino and of course be sure to check out his work at NYup.com as well as subscribe to his podcast, which again is killing it.

    TBP 259: “Professor” Bruce Nolan Grades The Buffalo Bills

    TBP 259: “Professor” Bruce Nolan Grades The Buffalo Bills

    On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran is joined by recurring guest Bruce Nolan of The Bruce Exclusive podcast to grade the Buffalo Bills positionally at the quarter point of the 2020 NFL regular season.

    The Buffalo Bills are 4-0 for the first time since 2008 yet this year’s record feels vastly different than it did 12 years ago. Bruce explains why, including a dive into the transformation of Josh Allen into one of the best quarterbacks in the entire league so far.

    From there they go position-by-position with Bruce providing an assessment and a grade for each, including a pair of A’s and an explanation on why he doesn’t believe in A+ marks.

    The grade differential between offense and defense is a revelation compared to what the guys expected shortly before the season started and that’s discussed.

    The guys also spend time discussing their biggest Bills takeaway so far this season, have a relatively difficult time figuring out who’s been the best defensive player and have some takes about league happenings, including insight as to what may happen in the future with Sam Darnold and the New York Jets.

    You can follow Bruce on Twitter @BruceExclusive and make sure to check out The Bruce Exclusive podcast every Thursday and Friday, part of the Buffalo Rumblings podcasting network.

    TBP 257: Joe Yerdon Talks Undefeated Bills & Jack Eichel

    TBP 257: Joe Yerdon Talks Undefeated Bills & Jack Eichel

    On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has as chat with sports writer and recurring guest Joe Yerdon to discuss the Buffalo Bills undefeated 3-0 start, Jack Eichel trade chatter and much more.

    The Bills dominated the Los Angeles Rams for two and a half quarters on Sunday before blowing a 25-point lead and needing a last minute touchdown to move to 3-0 on the season.  As he’s done in all three games this season, Josh Allen played at a league MVP level.  Patrick and Joe discuss Allen’s physical prowess but also his ability to stop the dominoes from all falling once he started unraveling in the second half.  They also discuss how Stefon Diggs’ presence continues to have a positive impact on the entire offense, Brian Daboll’s masterclass of play calling and Devin Singletary having a big-time statement game with rookie Zack Moss out.

    They also discuss an ailing defense that has put together uncharacteristically mediocre performances.  Injuries were an excuse in Miami but not Sunday at home.  Joe has takes on his level of concern over it, including Tremaine Edmunds looking lost at times in the middle of the defense, the lack of a pass rush and examining how much slack the defense deserves because it was going against one of the league’s better offenses.

    They also spend some time talking Buffalo Sabres, including reaction from a series of tweets from NHL insider Bob McKenzie centered around reported Jack Eichel trade chatter and McKenzie’s statement that Eichel doesn’t want out right now but is clearly frustrated over five years of losing.  Joe discusses what the Sabres can and need to do in order to help their captain and best player this season before things get to the point where he is actually does end up demanding a trade, including his take on the Eric Staal trade and what a rapidly approaching realistic offseason plan may look like.

    Plus, is Joe team fall is elite or team summertime is the best? All that and much more during this fun conversation.
