    Sabres Changes Are Coming, Plus Best Fictional Sports Movie Characters

    Sabres Changes Are Coming, Plus Best Fictional Sports Movie Characters

    It’s Casual Friday at Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer and friend Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including big changes likely coming with the Buffalo Sabres organization this summer and their weekly “Starting Five” draft, this week consisting of the best fictional sports movie characters.
    It’s possible if not likely the Sabres will ultimately lift the interim tag and promote Don Granato to head coach soon enough, but it’s hardly expected to be the biggest Sabres news coming down the pike this summer. The chances of Jack Eichel remaining with Buffalo appear more bleak than ever, and Joe discusses an article he wrote on it earlier this week and explains why he thinks Eichel’s departure is imminent and it’s time for the organization to make the best out of losing their best player. They also discuss the strong probability of Sam Reinhart being gone and how convincing Reinhart Buffalo’s worth sticking around for would be the best thing Buffalo could accomplish this offseason.
    This week’s “Starting Five’ consists of fictional sports movie characters, and the guys have a huge talent pool to choose from. Joe tries to break a three-week losing streak that saw Patrick win convincingly with HBO Original Series and Gangster Movies the past few drafts. Spoiler alert--the guys both predict they're gonna killed by critical fans following these selections.

    Steve Mathes, The Air Raid Hour

    Steve Mathes, The Air Raid Hour

    On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has a conversation with Steve Mathes of the Air Raid Hour, part of the Buffalo Fanatics network on a series of topics focused on the Buffalo Bills and weapons on the offensive side of the football.
    The Bills were rumored to be in the mix for wide receiver Julio Jones over the past few weeks but ultimately the former Atlanta Falcon was traded to the Tennessee Titans. It’s a move that doesn’t surprise either of the guys and they discuss the impact it likely has on the Titans and the rest of the AFC.
    They also spend time discussing the Bills offense, primarily second-year wide receiver Gabriel Davis before rating how they think Tennessee and other teams stack up in the AFC after Kansas City and Buffalo.
    Before diving into Julio Jones and football talk they spend some time talking about the Phoenix Suns, the sham of a “boxing’ exhibition between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul as well as a conversation about the success of the live YouTube shows on the Buffalo Fanatics network, including his own.
    You can follow Steve on Twitter @JudgeMathes and be sure to check out The Air Raid Hour alongside co-host David Tilton on both Mondays and Thursdays, live on their YouTube channel.

    Joe Yerdon Talks Power vs Beniers, Buffalo Blue Jays & Best Gangster Movies

    Joe Yerdon Talks Power vs Beniers, Buffalo Blue Jays & Best Gangster Movies

    It’s Casual Friday at Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer and friend Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including Joe’s experience being among the first fans to attend a MLB game in Buffalo in 106 years this past week, the Buffalo Sabres winning the NHL draft lottery and their weekly “Starting Five” draft, this week consisting of mobster/gangster movies.
    The Toronto Blue Jays hosted Miami this Tuesday at Sahlen’s Field in downtown Buffalo. Joe breaks down what it was like to be in attendance at the ballpark in terms of Covid protocols, vaccinated versus non-vaccinated season and the overall vibe from the crowd witnessing their first taste of regular season MLB baseball in Buffalo.
    The guys also talk about the Sabres winning the lottery and if Joe’s leaning Owen Power or Matt Beniers with the first pick as well as discussion about plummeting Sabres TV ratings and what they can do to change that.
    From there they draft their “Starting Five” among mobster/gangster movies. After no surprises among the first three selections (Godfather 2, Godfather 1, Goodfellas) the selections get more unpredictable, with each guy taken at least one non-Italian mob movie as one of their five picks.

    Joe Yerdon Talks Bills, Sabres & HBO Original Series

    Joe Yerdon Talks Bills, Sabres & HBO Original Series

    It’s Casual Friday at Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including a big controversy brewing with the Buffalo Bills involving Covid vaccination, the lack of public information regarding the Buffalo Sabres head coaching search and the weekly “Starting Five” draft, this week featuring original HBO series.
    It’s Casual Friday at Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including a big controversy brewing with the Buffalo Bills involving Covid vaccination, the lack of public information regarding the Buffalo Sabres head coaching search and the weekly “Starting Five” draft, this week featuring original HBO series.
    OTA’s began this week for the Bills and head coach Sean McDermott spoke to the media and was surprisingly candid on his views with the Covid vaccination.  McDermott said he has been fully vaccinated as has Brandon Beane and the Pegula’s and made it clear he wants his players to be as well. However, Cole Beasley was very vocal about not getting Covid shots on Twitter a few weeks ago and there’s plenty of other hints that this is a divided issue among players.  Joe offers his thoughts on this and if he thinks it could become a potential distraction this summer and possibly even until the regular season.
    They also touch on the Buffalo Sabres and the latest involving Don Granato and other potential head coaching candidates. 
    This week’s “Starting Five” draft is HBO series---after Patrick gloats about winning last week’s TV Show Theme Songs draft.  Can he make it two in a row?

    Playing Devil's Advocate With The Bills

    Playing Devil's Advocate With The Bills

    On this episode of the future-award winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has a chat with friend and recurring guest Joe from Queens on a variety of topics highlighted by a discussion that intentionally plays devil’s advocate to the Buffalo Bills Super Bowl chances this coming season.
    The Bills went 13-3 last year, made the AFC championship game and by nearly all accounts are among the strongest favorites to represent the conference in the Super Bowl.  However, whether fans like it or not there’s reasons that provide skepticism to the 2021 Bills and the guys dive into some worrisome items.  Among them are questions on how much the offensive line, running backs and tight ends will improve given it’s essentially the same cast of characters returning, as well as questions about the short term pass rush and being seemingly poised to run it back with Levi Wallace at cornerback alongside Tre White.
    They also spend some time talking about fans once again making their presence felt at sporting events, examining whether Rueben Brown or Eric Moulds are more worthy of going into the Bills Wall of Fame and Joe has a take on Buffalo Bills/Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula.
    All that and much more.  Follow Joe on Twitter @BuffaloWins

    Casual Friday: Buffalo vs Florida Dilemma, Plus TV Show Theme Songs Draft

    Casual Friday: Buffalo vs Florida Dilemma, Plus TV Show Theme Songs Draft

    It’s Casual Friday at Talking Buffalo Podcast and Patrick Moran is joined by sports writer Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including Patrick’s big dilemma over staying in Florida or moving back to Buffalo, if Buffalo could ever properly support a NBA or MLB franchise as well as their “Starting Five” draft of TV Show Theme Songs.
    After spending the past five years in Florida, Patrick’s at the point where he could move back to his hometown of Buffalo. It’s something he’s wanted to do for the past few years but in recent months he’s come to enjoy much more about Florida and more importantly his wife has built a nice career down in the sunshine state.  Patrick forces Joe to play Dr. Joe and spills the details about his dilemma.
    On the heels of reports that the NBA plans on expanding, the guys have a discussion about if Buffalo could actually be a viable candidate for a franchise.  They hit on the differences between fan support versus financial support and if a third major professional sports team could realistically exist in Buffalo.
    They conclude with this week’s “Starting Five” where the guys spend an unhealthy amount of time drafting their favorite TV Show Theme Songs and mentioning countless other shows that were worthy of making the cut.
