Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Children! Tell me.
Oh, buffalo fanatics proudly brings Thio A a a.
You can't tell me that beat doesn't go hard.
Hard body, ladies and gentlemen, is your boy Rico Bat! Bat biggie! Back at it again! Yes, sir.
It's your boy And we are here.
You know what it is? The buffalo fanatics.
This is the Rico report.
We have a nice night, but I think it's a nice night to talk Bills football.
Don't you all think that is a great night to talk touch on bills football? And I won't be doing it by myself.
You all know here and there. Sometimes I go solo. Dolo.
Sometimes I bring a special guest.
I had Damon from data from the from draft diamonds that came on and bless the mic, and this boy killed it.
You guys loved what he brought to the table, and I'm loving it.
And, uh, my boy asked said that we're gonna get rated R.
I don't know, man.
I really don't know where it will soon find out what the deal is.
But right now I think I'm frozen.
Good. We're good.
I think I'm frozen, but we may not get rated R.
It all depends on what my other guest decides to bring to the table.
If he's soft, then that's what we're gonna do.
I highly doubted so, ladies, gentlemen, without further ado, let me bring in my homie my guy Real ****! Mitchell, What is ****ing going on? My God, what's happening? Ho ho! What's up? Break out.
What's going on? In fact, just go ahead.
And and so really so with acids.
If there's anybody in the Buffalo Bills community that's going to bring out the rated R version of you, it's gonna be May.
So have no fear.
That's what it is.
But you can't bring Rated R.
Rico out when you start with a Christmas Carol.
Yo ho, Listen, it reminds me of Christmas Every time you do it, I love it.
I don't mind it at all.
And hey, listen honestly, like I mean, I'm like a festive dude, and so you know what I mean.
It's funny because Yoho actually evolved from yo yo yo.
And then one day I'm pretty sure that I just ended up getting back from like, a happy hour or something, and I just wanted to record it impromptu video.
And I think I was just buzzed enough where I just said, Yo ho ho on accident.
And then it just evolved into that.
And here we are.
Let me tell you, that's exactly how organic things happening.
It's cool because let me tell you when I go Bing Big a Teabing that was never supposed to be a thing with that, let me tell you something.
So I wanted to originally get a bell for when people came in with a super chat.
I could ring it and, you know, you can call it a day and we'll go from there.
But I never had my bell, so I'd go Bing, Bing, Bing, Bing.
So I'll keep saying big being until my bells coming.
And it never came in until the wife was like, Here you go.
I bought you guys and bells, and by that time being bigoted, being became a thing, and that's what it is.
It just things come organic and that's the way we roll.
So I'm so do you use the bell mother****ing right We do we ring the bell, It ain't no People know same thing.
Bang, bang, bang, ring, ring, ring.
Saying listen, but seeing is the bell doesn't come out for no reason.
Everybody knows when.
There's the belt, my boy.
Josh, Quentin's Rico! What's going on, fellas? We are here with my god**** Mitchell.
Were about to get into some bills. Talk.
Um, Dan, what's up? I wanna ask you, how are you feeling about the Bills right now? And so to be honest with the Rico.
And so I am feeling a bit more optimistic than a lot of our colleagues and a lot of fellow Bills fans are concerned, right? Like really, honestly, like that two game losing streak right against the Titans and right against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Certainly hurt, right? But one thing that I always like to tell myself, this is the fact that if you were to expect the Buffalo Bills to go 16 and now, then you're sorely mistaken going into this season, and then you also need to, like, really come to fruition and understand that we just ended up playing two teams that were in the A F C championship, one of which that ended up making it to the Super Bowl.
What's most important with an NFL team is how you play in November and so December as well.
And that's the one thing that's sort of like really kept me sort of optimistic, moving forward and then last Sunday against the Jets.
Listen, Bills, Mafia, the fanatics don Mafia.
I know that you guys wanted to see a blowout victory against the New York Jets or the New Jersey Jets.
Excuse me, but really, at the end of the day, we didn't need to blow out and put 40 points on the board to beat the New York Jets.
This past Sunday way didn't need Thio legitimately.
A Tyler bass kicking spree was legitimately all we needed.
And here's my theory, Rico.
Here's my theory, right? The Buffalo Bills purposely went into that game with a conservative mindset, due to the fact and the rumors of how terrible the turf is at Met life.
They wanted to go in there, get the W and not risk any more injuries to an already battered team way.
We were going in there aggressive, then we could have rest some significant injuries.
And luckily, the Buffalo Bills.
We ended up getting out with a W and healthy and healthy 110%.
I would have never thought you would have went that way for someone that Yes.
Because for someone that says five ways, we're gonna annihilate the Browns five ways we're gonna We're gonna every time, every time to bang the Titans.
I mean, all those things I love the way you know what I'm saying.
So I'm thinking you're going to I was expecting you to say that I wanted them to crush them, because I'll tell you this, this was a game that I think we all thought was gonna be a tune up game where we call it a tune up, Right, Because defense hasn't been in the great.
That hasn't been playing the greatest offense.
Yeah, I mean, they kind of stifled.
They've been stumbled.
I mean, the first four games we were averaging over 30 points a game.
The last three were averaging, like in the teens, right? 18 19 points a game.
So it's not gonna cut it.
So you're thinking it gets the O N six Jets.
We should be able to come in and handle business.
When we don't even score touchdowns, we go in the red zone, own five in the red zone.
I know some penalties happened, but having Tyler bass kick our way to a victory, I don't know shout out to my guy.
Sheldon. Cold, cold.
You've got to give me the comment, man.
You gotta type the comment, getting them twitter fingers.
Man, you got to get in there, and I'll make sure that I read your comment, my guy.
So, um, I want to get I have some questions down.
All right, so we're talking with the jets game got, um you feel that? You know, I mean, we wanted to be a conservative.
We wanted to go in there, just get the w and get out.
So you're part of the fan base.
So I guess the fan, the Bills fan that thinks ah, win is a win.
No matter how you get it, get that w and just want a Okay, I'm with you.
Ah, Win is a win because nobody's gonna be thinking about how the hell would be the Jets four weeks from now, they're not gonna care.
Right? But there are some games where you just wanna win in fashion.
You wanna win in fashion.
And this was one of those games I felt that we could have.
We could have wanted fashion.
So, um, good news is John Feliciano has been activated.
How do you feel about that, sir? Which is something that I have been waiting for that announcement the entire season, my friend.
Legitimately, when it comes down to it, when you look at the issue with our run game, maybe a lot of it has to do with the fact that Devin Singletary is hitting a sop****re slump.
But really, at the end of the day, it's the interior part of our offensive line, and we absolutely need a player like John Feliciano to open up some more of those running lanes by itself.
He was an integral piece of our offensive line last year, the second that I heard that he taught his pack and he was going to be out for a couple of games this season.
I had a feeling that our run game was going to take a hit, but not nearly as bad of a hit rate as I have seen so far in 2020.
So him coming back is going to be integral, right? I completely agree.
I'm a big fan of Feliciano was a big fan of him last year.
Ah, lot of folks may say, but yeah, P according to pfft, wasn't that great? But it's not ****ing hate.
I don't mind Pff, I don't mind it.
I mean, because people, this is why I don't mind it.
And I call bull**** on people that don't like it because when it works in their favor to talk about a player that they love.
Hey, did you guys see Dane Jackson? He was He was waited one of the best corners, and you guys would use Pff.
Now you to general, right? And then when they don't do what you want, I hate Pff Buffalo verse.
Pff, by the way, go cop your shirt.
Go ahead and get this. Great.
There you go, my man.
So I got my guy Sheldon call.
I finally got the comment.
Hey, says hey, Bills Mafia with the pat Scoring two TDs with Newton Hoyer instead.
Um, in the last three weeks, do you see us getting more turnovers? Is John Brown playing down this guy boy, but a whole bunch of sin there.
Um, do you think John Brown's question on DSO Honestly, I think he needs Thio.
From what I have seen, when John Brown has not been healthy or he has not been out in that field, our offense is not quite the same, right? I mean, this offseason we were so excited.
That's the font.
Digs ended up coming back, thinking that, like, I mean, he was about to blow up the playbook, which he has, for the most part, is like third or fourth, I think in the league for like for stealing guards thus far.
But for some reason when John Brown is not on that field, it seems like Josh Allen zeroes in on Stefon Diggs.
And I feel like he plays a lot better when he has a few more.
A few more options, rather right and I mean so much.
It's funny, too, because so many people going into training camp for like the first week or something like that were saying Oh, listen, we just drafted John Brown's replacement, Gabe Davis.
He's gonna be our wide receiver to he's going to step in.
He's gonna be that guy.
And then all it took was just a couple of games where John Brown was not in or he was playing injured.
Where do you realize we kind of need John Brown? Yeah, the heart.
The heart grow fonder for those that are away from the from the from you, right from the team.
So John Brown being away.
It kind of changed things because John Brown presents different skill set than gave Davis we thought gave Davis would come in and just kind of killed the game, right? But it's not.
So you need every integral part of this **** offense to make it work.
That's why we built this dam team around Josh Allen.
Which brings me to my next, By the way, Ryan, seal back.
Shout out to you because my two favorite bills youtuber is rated R.
Donde todo self? That's what it is, man.
The triple. I don't know what it is, man s.
Oh, I gotta ask you this, though.
So looking at the this this Bills team and looking at who we have a quarterback.
Your your thoughts on Josh Allen's play Just the last game. Mm.
I want to know how you felt about his play in that game because I have people saying that he was a man.
I have people saying that he was amazing.
You just gotta look at what he did.
And I myself think that he just had an okay game. Yeah.
So what are your thoughts? And so this is definitely an interesting question, right? Because say, for example, that we did not know the score right now.
And we just understood that the Buffalo Bills won the game.
And if you were to tell me that Josh Allen were to throw forever 300 yards with 70% completion rate, say that I say that I only heard that then I would have expected the Buffalo Bills to put up 35 points, like right on the New York Jets.
Who is by itself? The reason I think that a lot of Bills fans are skeptical of Josh Allen is because he has progressed so much into year three that it has raised the bar.
Say, for example, that this game were to occur last year.
Josh Allen would not even be in the conversation.
We would be blaming a whole multitude of different reasons why we lost that game, right? His progression is there.
Yes, I understand that the Chiefs game was certainly not ideal, but really, against the Titans, he played a pretty good game.
Statistically, at the end of the day, what teams and defense didn't do us any favors with giving the Titans and average starting position on the ****ing 32 eso Itt's.
He's making the right moves, and obviously he's still a young quarterback, and I don't care which quarterback you throw out there in the NFL.
There's gonna be some bad throws.
There's gonna be misreads.
There's gonna be some things where you're going to scratch his head.
But it's clear that the steps that he has taken this year has raised the bar like Think about it like how lucky are we right now that we're criticizing our quarterback for throwing over 300 yards with a 70% completion, right? It's crazy, right? It sounds like we're spoiled.
That's what it is e think we just don't know how to act when we get good, nice things because that nice things and respected all the time or everybody come down to reality, There's gonna be some ugly days, You know what I'm saying? And there's gonna be some great days.
There's some days where I don't feel the ***iest what I'm saying.
There's some days that I feel **** fine.
I say woman getting that bedroom because I'm about to put it to you.
Some days I don't feel good.
I'm gonna lay it down.
I'm sure Dom off.
I'm sure my man Dan does the same thing.
You hold on. I gotta ask this question.
No, I think your lady comes in.
Sometimes it sits next to you.
What's her name? What's her name? Did you give her nickname? Eso Her nickname is sparkles. Okay.
I thought I heard that, right.
Eso I try to keep her anonymous because I don't want, like, just like some random pervs hitting it up on instagram and **** like that.
Getting which is fine and like was definitely like, per her request.
So I mean, we started calling her sparkles and stuff like that.
And I mean, of course, like I mean, like, like I mean, like, you get like, some some trolls in there being like, Oh, bro, what's strip club you meet her with? Tell me what you think.
Ladies and gentlemen, we've got sparkle coming to the stage.
Give a club for sparkle.
That's exactly what it sounds like to me.
Like what I like to pleasure.
It's funny because, like, I, like, didn't even give her the name was I believe it was Norm.
And I'm pretty sure that he is one of your regular viewers as well possible.
It's when he said it like the entire squad just started calling her sparkles.
So that's been her name.
Every e I respected, I respected.
You should bring her on more often.
Because I'll tell you right now, sometimes sometimes the lady will come on and she just sits there and just and she gets herself a bottle of wine and she just gets a hand and they love it.
They love They love the wife.
You, Mrs. Rico, is all about that.
So I like him, man.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are tuned into the rico report.
I got my god**** Mitchell.
Uh, Dad, I gotta give you shot on there, because right now, I we talked in the background.
I gotta I gotta say what? Something. My god**** brown.
What do man? Hey, Rico, just show some love and support for our squad.
I gotta work, but do your thing, Boy, Let's get that dub this week.
I appreciate that.
My god**** from Hawaii.
He's getting a nice He's getting a nice tan in Hawaii s.
So here's the deal.
I got I gotta I gotta give you props because this YouTube game is not an easy game for those that think it's easy.
We make it look easy.
We have a good old time.
Listen, I still working 9 to 5.
I'm saying Dan still works in 95.
We still we still we still have regular lives that we got to do, but we still put in the work and the hours and the time of research and all that stuff in the editing.
So I got to give you respect because you're doing it solo.
I've got a big crew behind me, which is big.
Supportive It? You're doing a solo man.
Salute to you, man. Keep grinding.
Man that, boys. Almost 10,000 subscribers.

You know, I'm saying so.
That's my god**** Mitchell.
I gotta give you love, man.
That's that's what You gotta get the flowers with flowers to do.
So we have a game that we play with Guest.
I come on to the Rico report.
It's becoming a fan.
Favorite. People are loving it.
This game is called two words.
Let me get my banners up because we're going to give my guy Dan the ability to express himself with two words.
Two words in my man.
****! All right.
So again, I'm gonna give you a a softball.
I'm a lob it to you.
You could smash that at the park.
And then? Then well, then we'll go into it.
I might throw you off my throw your curve ball over here and there.
But we'll go and we'll get it. We'll get it poppin.
So by the way, you guys are tuned in smashed that like not for me.
Smash that life from my guy.
Dan, you're listening to the RICO report.
If you're listening on on the podcast for the next day, salute to you guys.
This is gonna be one of the best podcast probably ever listened to.
So let's keep it rocking. Let's go.
So here's the deal, my friend Dane Jackson.
Surprisingly amazing. Surprising.
Would you like to elaborate on that? Are you good with just surprisingly amazing.
What did you feel about his game? For sure, man, Honestly, like looking back like right into his college days.
A lot of the times when he ended up playing in the slot at Pitt like there was a lot of times where, like, you didn't like like, I mean, so it looked like that.
Like he really didn't know how to make the correct decision like there were a lot of reads that, like he didn't end up making appropriately.
But since we ended up putting him out to the outside, I'm surprised his college coach has never understood that because it only narrow down his vision and he was able to make plays when the Buffalo Bills needed him to make plays.
A lot of people are high on Dane Jackson myself included, however, unfortunately, when it comes to the sample size of playing against the New Jersey Jets.
And I mean, we still need to see exactly what he is going to be like once he actually faces like mid tier receivers, not even quite the elite receivers but mid tier receivers.
I really liked what I saw from him, and it gave the defense a bit of a spark.
Um, like I said, it's a very small sample size, but say that I want to give, like, a crazy overreaction.
At this point, I would feel more comfortable of him lining up in the outside than I would with Josh Norman Oily by Wells.
Oh, you want him over, Levi Wallace. That is bold, my friend.
Small sample, small samples because Jeremy Carter is always going to get on your ass because it pumped the mother effing breaks.
He got an interception in a zone defense.
Everybody, I'm paraphrasing for my guy. Jeremy.
Jeremy, you better You better respect this.
Pump your brakes because calm down.
It was just one game.
But let me tell you, he's Jerry Dan said.
It's a small sample size and the sample size that he got.
So, Sir, thank you for answering that question.
That was a softball.
You're making a little bit of people, some people upset.
But that's what it is. That's what it is.
So let's move it.
So next one, the Bills five.
And to record two words.
To explain the bills or to express yourself on the bills five and to record, mostly expected, most expected.
So you okay, that's respectful.
Um, did you see? Did you have us losing to the two teams that we lost to? No, I did not.
In fact, I did have the Buffalo Bills being six and one. At this point.
I didn't beating the Tennessee Titans, and I had us losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.
So I did see the Tennessee Titans game, um, sort of being a toss up, like right at the end of the day, because right before the season and I was proven wrong significantly, I was under the impression rate that so the Titans were significantly overrated and Ryan Tannehill was gonna spiral back down right to his Miami days, and it was proven wrong and I ate crow.
I like once I came down to it, we thought, because I'll tell you, when I was on with the Tennessee Titans boys man, Titan Anderson and my guys Tennessee Titans Weekly They were saying you guys were not respecting.
You're not respecting Tannehill.
Y'all don't know, man.
He came on last year and was ripping it.
I was like, Yeah, but I mean, it's Tannehill.
We know him, man.
We've been watching it for so long.
Boy, he took us to the house.
He played well, man.
And he played Look at his last game.
His last name was great.
He brought his team back to almost take down, actually tied the game with the Titans.
So you've got to give respect to the Tennessee Titans, man.
And we put a valiant effort not good enough to many mistakes, but I think that we could have done way better than we did.
But may and we probably will see these guys again, so I'm looking forward to it.
So the bills having to record you said that you expected it which is great.
Let me give you this is a filet o fish.
Is this a sandwich or a burger? So is it still two words or just? No, no, no.
Just answer this question for me.
This is off the cuff filet because I had a switch.
The filet o fish that McDonald's filet o fish.
I'm a fan of the filet o fish.
I don't give a **** what people say.
It's an underrated burger, but you can't call it a burger.
It's a sandwich.
And so I'm in the camp of believing it to be a sandwich and hear me out.
Let me go ahead and put like down this theory that, like this is a sandwich.
That's a sandwich.
That's a sandwich.
Beef is not in the equation.
If beef is not between the buns or beef is not between the pieces of bread, it is a sandwich.
That's always been my theory.
It is a filet o fish sandwich sandwich that the filet o fish sandwich, a fan or not a fan love it and so love it.
And so growing up and so growing up and I'm like, and so my grandma's a stout Catholic, So I mean, we couldn't have meat on Fridays during Lent.
So that would normally be the treat that she would take me to McDonald's and I would have a filet of fish every now and again.
Now, I must say that I have been a terrible Catholic for the past 10 years, and I've been eating meat regardless on Fridays.
What? I still have that nice memory back.
Listen, I love it. I love it.
Listen, we all we all have our moments of weakness.
We all have a moment of weakness.
I got to say this, man, if I eat my I think I still have the childhood in me.
When I used to back in the day used to get like when I was a kid.
I used to get the little fish pop top and take my fries and crisscross the fries.
And I still do that to this day because it takes me back.
Oh, you got to try that ****.
You get the filet of fish and the fries together.
Mutko bueno, I tell you, I don't know why I'm speaking, Italiano, but it's just a freaking filet o fish that we're talking about switching fast food establishments real fast.
But what are your thoughts on dipping your fries in the chocolate frosty? Some people hated some people love it.
Is it? Is it a McDonald's fried we're talking about? Because it makes a difference? Oh, it makes a difference.
Because when you cross pollinated before, like you bought a Wendy's Frosty then drove down Donald got the fries I have crossed before, but not for a frosty I've gotten.
I've gotten the fries at McDonald's.
This was This was the day I was bored.
I don't know if you guys have you guys don't have Harvey's.
So ah, Harvey's burger, that za Canadian thing.
Ah, Harvey's burger and W burgers Air Really **** good, too.
I'm a fan of N W burgers, but those McDonald's fries just hit different now, taking McDonald's try and get Sunday an ice cream sundae dip.
That ***** in there.
Oh, it's a money is money, but people might think I'm sick for that.
Like the perfect salt of sweetness ratio.
Listen, let me ring that bell for you, man.
I'm what I'm talking about.
Let me Let me Let's switch up.
Let's switch up.
Let's switch up. All right, here we go. So we went with the filet o fish.
Thank you for for clarifying that because I thought it was a burger.
I could I thought, Do you call it a burger meet between a patty? But it's gotta be beef. I understand.
E respected. I respected.
The perception this was a good one.
The perception you could give me more words if you'd like to.
The perception of bills the bills team to outsiders.
The perception of the bills team to outsiders right now, right now.
And this has been to It's not subjective.
This is what most people are most likely thinking of that.
What do you think they think of the bills? Yeah, kind of overrated.
I think they think they're too.
I think they they you know what it is.
I feel like there's still two others to other folks.
There's still a stench on on on us, right, Because for the last 20 years, we've been buns.
We've just been terrible.
And the last three years we've been just ascending.
We've been getting better But people just still see us as the just the bills, man.
They do this all the time.
They give you hoping and they **** the bed.
But I think that we're getting to the point where we're washing that stink off of others think that we are still the same old bills.
So are you Are any? Is anybody in your outer circle kind of somewhat starting to give the bills respect? Are they still kind of like not elaborated? Yeah, And so, surprisingly, Patriots fans and Jets fans, they're finally starting to come around being like that.
As Faras, the division champion, is concerned.
It's going to be the Buffalo Bills.
But I mean, especially with, like some of the fans, that arm or of like, sort of fans of, like the bandwagon express type football teams, right, like they can't shapes or the Tennessee Titans and stuff along those lines like they think that Weeks one through four was just an absolute fluke and was just the fact that there was no pre season and teams like really haven't mesh well with the rest of the chemistry that's sitting there on the field.
But really, Rico, like right.
At the end of the day, we would have heard that narrative the first time that the Buffalo Bills lost.
We legitimately could have went nine and oh, the next next game we could have lost.
That narrative would have came up.
Unfortunately, unfortunately, as Bills fans, this narrative is never going to die unless we make it to an A f C championship.
And e, I was gonna I was gonna take a step further.
But I'll take that.
I'll say, unless we win the **** Super Bowl.
That's when they can shut the F up.
That's when they're going to like right now, the Raptors.
We've been decent.
I'm a Laker guy, but I mean I mean I mean wrap their country.
So I got to respect the Raptors Raptors and nobody was giving us a chance at all until they want it now.
You got to respect the Raptors, you feel, but you guys had called Highlander, man.
We want the **** thing.
That's what it is. But anyway, that's not neither here nor there.
Thank you for answering that because I need that.
There's a lot of people don't respect the bills still to this day we could, like you said 19.
, we could have been anyone lost our 10th game.
Uh, same old bills.
That's for tenders.
I totally get it.
Nine and seven, dude.
I guarantee you, I just see comments in my thing.
Like, say that we were in 19.
, we lose 19 and seven, dude.
And there's still people right now that are saying 97 but they're silent.
They're not saying a word until we get to start to kind of maybe take a couple of games.
Now you're gonna start hearing the haters coming right now, the haters have to shut the **** up because they can't say anything.
They can't say a word because we're winning.
I have one guy and I got to give it.
I got to give a shout out to him because he he's a good He's a good member.
He always watches thinking out loud heat.
He was crickets, crickets all all year, right.
And now we lose a couple games.
Now he wants to trip up and say tables, trash tables.
This Where were you four weeks ago.
Nothing Crickets, man.
Shut your ass up with respectful way was that, Uh, there it is, man.
You know what it is, man? All right, let's get a little tougher now.
Uh, what you got was a f c east, um, toward a f c east.
Uh, the two words air a shoo in shooing.
Shoeing can elaborate.
I wanna keep it that way. Yeah.
And so, like, I honestly don't see any other alternative reality where the Buffalo Bills are not on top of the A f.
C s by the end of the year.
I agree with us on the way that things there are alternative and the way I'm looking down at the Patriots e can't quite see them because of that far down.
I just tried looking at, but I'm going to see anything.
So I can't wait till Friday because I'm gonna get in that.
Do that. I'm getting that ass.
I'll tell you that right now.
Miami often, like you know, eso They're throwing a rookie in there for his first name and for his first game against Aaron.
Donald que Perfect? Because I think they're about to, like, run the table and they're about to lose their next three straight.
The dumbest ****ing decision.
I've seen a football team making a long time.
Okay, so I had this funny that you mention that because I had a f c East and I said then because the next team up is the Dolphins and they put two in.
So how are you? How are you feeling? About eight.
Matt fits magic putting two in.
Do you feel for Fitzy? I know you like you do.
I do, man, I really, really do.
And honestly, man like this is probably gonna be a controversial take, but honestly, and so I would welcome back Fitzy.
And so to be our backup quarterback with open arms with open arms show him the respect that he **** deserves.
Like that guy legitimately.
He's the reason why the Dolphins or three and three at this point, he's the reason why their offense has been exploding.
And then you're gonna disrespect the man by putting in a rookie who What did he complete like two passes, like right against his last game like, Oh, yeah, he's our starter Now.
He's our starter now.
Like I legitimately hope.
Like, listen honestly.
And so I think Fitzy will be taking snaps for the Dolphins by the second half during the Rams game.
Wow, Zaha, take I gotta give a shot to my God.
Brian Bowers shots.
He says bills have to be have to beat good teams and not look like ish against them.
Before we start getting respect, we can't look inferior against playoff teams.
E mean, nobody can.
You wanna You wanna show that you can win in this league? You gotta beat the teams that count, right that have over 500 record, right? That's what you need.
So I gotta chime in on this on this tour thing because people don't realize fits.
Magic is 38 years of age.
All right, He's 38.
We don't realize it because we're like, Oh, we love it.
See, we tend to forget about how old he is.
Ah, back up, right.
He doesn't play like one.
He has the confidence of a starter.
But a 38 year old quarterback and you drafted 1/5.
You drafted a quarterback with the fifth pick.
You can't do were three and three.
If you're gonna find out what you have in this guy, you find out right now because ah, lot of people got mad that we didn't put Josh Allen in right away.
We messed around with putting Nate Peterman.
Thank you very much.
I got that Nate Peterman in their Peterman in, and then we brought Anderson, and we just We're just messing around with that ****.
So the fact of the matter is, they're not waiting there like, No, **** this.
We took this guy in the fifth with the fifth pick.
He's getting in.
We need to find out what he's got right now, right? And e, I like the mood.
I first because I got my my emotions got into it like Fitzy.
That little beard of is right.
But I'm like, you know, **** all that your 30 years of age, man, you're 38.
You need to be the mentor behind him.
It hurts the way it happened, but it's gotta happen, because if you were vice versa and we had, ah, 38 year old guy and we had a freaking rookie ready to go.
You say, Put the rookie in right now to see what he's got because we need to find out.
We don't wanna wait and find out what he's got.
Let's say you wait until next year and you find out that he was some trash, and so I think I can agree with you.
But like, I mean, say, for example, that Fitzy was riding the back of, like his running backs and his running backs were throwing up like 200 like 222 150 yards per game on the ground.
And he was essentially being a game management then, yes, 110%.
I totally agree with you.
But, dude, man, not like 300 yard games like dicing up secondaries.
But we also know it is a Jekyll and Hyde.
Yeah, that's the magic e There you have it.
There you have it.
I like that S o r.
I can't I don't want to jump ahead, but I got to.
So we got the Patriots that I think that we we should do well against the Patriots on I'm not going to say we're gonna win, but we should Farewell against the Patriots after the Patriots, We've got Cardinals, Seahawks, Niners, Chargers.
Okay, two words to describe.
That's four game stretch.
Oh boy, ****! Because I'm like, Yo, Justin her.
But it's not. It's not a scrub.
He's although the record doesn't play, but he's been playing well against tough teams.
Tough upon Russell Wilson, I think, is the best quarterback in the league.
Jimmy Garoppolo is starting to not get his get his wheels underneath him and the Cardinals with fricking what's his with Kyler Murray in that offense? Boy, I'm just saying that it's old boy for me.
You **** right it is because we won a game out of time.
Let's get the patch first.
Let's go six and two.
Let's go six and two at the half way mark and we'll call it a day because that **** is eso.
Let's go 500 from then on out. Just take the FCS.
I'm not mad at that, but I think we'll be more because I remember the year that we we took this.
We took on the Seahawks with Tyrod Taylor taking on The Seagull.
So I think it's a Thursday night game on Monday Again, I can't recall.
And we battled with the Seahawks right till the end of that game was close.
Wasn't that was a close game.
And so they had a hell of a better defense back then.
And we had a weight ****tier offense back.
Thank you very much anyway.
So anything that happens, that's the things, right? And right now, that that Seahawks defense, although, I mean, we'd like to think that the Seahawks of old they're not there, I think rank near the bottom defensively.
So we have an opportunity.
We get that Allen from the first four weeks to jump into the games further, and I don't wanna jump ahead of the Patriots.
You'll catch what you Okay, You catch what I mean, by the way, we've got 371 people watching right now.
So to you guys, this is great.
This is Tuesday night.
This is the RICO report on the Buffalo fanatics.
I got my god**** Mitchell from Don Mafia.
Dan, how you feeling today? You feeling good.
Oh, dude, I'm feeling good, man.
Once again, I definitely appreciate you having me on.
I am really looking forward to having you on my channel on Friday as we battle it out with two Patriots fans.
It's gonna be fun.
It's gonna be good.
It was gonna be good.
It's gonna be a that a I should personalities.
And I hate the Patriots.
Three teams, three teams that you hate the most in the NFL.
What do you talk? Three teams you hate three teams.
I hate the most NFL.
Definitely the Patriots number one.
Yeah, I think the Ravens like not even the team.
I hate Ravens fan.
They just hate hearing that ****.
It grinds my gears, bro.
Um, that in Philly, fans fill me.
You know, e Philly being like ****ing Philadelphia recently, though, too, and so recently like not like not all fans, but like Miami Dolphins fans have been starting to troll me pretty bad the past couple of weeks.
So, like, they're rising in the ranks, the rising in the ranks, bases I detest.
I actually don't mind, uh, the dolphins, I think they're quite friendly.
They're quite nice.
I mean, I have a I have a friend of mine.
Kevin the Dolphin fan. Everybody's driving.
Yeah, Kevin, Kevin's a good dude on.
They like to chirp like Kevin, But Kevin is very objective, and they love hearing his takes.
Ryan Teel says, Rico, you didn't read my first super chat.
Let me let me scroll on back to my guy. Ryan.
We, uh we sit here with my dad, my guy dance.
So Ryan Teel I'm scrolling on my guy and I'm trying to look for the super chat, but I don't see that. So I'm gonna apologize.
So make your comment known, and put it up there, and I'm gonna find it and put it up to you, my guy.
So, um, Bills, Here's one for you.
Bills, Twitter bills, Twitter, God.
And so I would you, um, ridiculously aggravating they are.
Can't they be? I feel like there's a lot of what annoys you the most about bills.
There is just so much pessimism like there's so much pessimism, like, God forbid that Josh Allen, like, overthrow somebody like there's just like a storm of tweets being like Throw Barkley in bro.
Let's just like do that like it's just like a giant.
It's a giant of over reaction, and the problem is like And so I get it like, say that like the Bills lose Then soon as when they lose, I'm very ****ed off and I'm thinking a whole bunch of things.
But I never go to Twitter and express those things like I always try to keep it positive.
Some people like they just express their frustrations immediately, and they legitimately just sit there and like they like, start an argument with you.
Like, for one thing saying that we need to convince sort of the Stevie Johnson.
And so instead of roll back from retirement or stuff like that and replace the bond eggs like you just get some of the most ridiculous take Alexander back on the bills we need to bring Exactly, exactly.
Now I will say this, though I I used Twitter to express myself a swell.
I think I go to the point where I'm, like, get from in the game I'm or I'm or something like, Yo, you see that play? Oh, this will happen like you express yourself.
But the one thing I hate about bills, Twitter is there's a lot of, like know what else? Put something out there.
They're quick to jump in your ship. No, sir.
According to this, this is what it is.
All right, man, you have it cool.
I was wrong. All right.
What? I'm reading a paragraph from Buffalo rumblings and just paraphrasing like they don't know ****.
Yeah, man is a whole bunch of that stuff.
My guy kingpin says Dan is a smart man.
Gotta take emotions out and put **** into perspective.
Look at my guy Coming, Thio.
On your negative energy.
I like it like you see, I'm not one of those guys sleep, so I'm gonna get right up in their ****.
That's why we do the games, right? After many emotions are raw.
Get up in the game and get in there.
Then I do Tuesday shows to sleep on it and say I had time to reflect strong about, you know, for me it wasn't as bad as anticipated.
Absolutely does it.
Brian Taylor says, Think Quentin Williams rumors are true And do we give up our first round pick for him? Hell, no.
I'm not giving a first round pick.
Are you giving a professional pick? What would you give up for Quinn Williams? Maybe second, Maybe maybe e would have a third.
I'm pick type of thing, but I just don't think.
And so I think that there's a team out there that would be an idiot and give a first round for him would be dumb, but say that it's from a Bills perspective.
Then I'd probably give a third, maybe a second.
Yeah, I'm on third right now, but if they really threw something else in with Queen and then maybe I'll get I'll get in a second.
But But then you pay Quinton afterwards so that that's a that's a whole nother ballgame.
And with the amount of money that way, the Sirica like I mean, I'm really excited to talk about this is well, because I mean, like, say that like, there's like this guy that's rumored to hit free agency or he's gonna be released or he's on the trade block like so we're like, Oh my God, like, let's go get him like so many people were talking about. Everson.
So many people were talking about J. J.
So many people are obviously talking about, like that interior defensive line help, which I'm gonna sit here and tell you that we don't need interior, defensive, blind health certain do.
But we just don't have the money, man, Like we just have the money, you know, much money we have right now on the cap.
Million, I think 4.
What we going to do that I would love to have a J.
I think he make our defense that much better.
We just won't be able to afford it, and I and I might as well get to it.
Do you think we make a trade of the trade deadline? Say that we do, man, it's not going to be a big name whatsoever.
It's not going to be a big name whatsoever, but say that there is going to be a trade.
It is going to help out our depth situation in the defense, because I mean, like, you look at our defensive line and you look at our cornerback room and you look at our linebacker room like honestly, like I mean, like, we've seen how our defense looks like when Matt Milano is not in there.
We've seen what it looks like when all of our cornerbacks air hurting in some type of depth.
And I know a lot of people, right, and they're not gonna be happy about this.
Take, because there's this narrative going around that we hop on every single former Carolina Panther on the face of the planet.
But there is a gentleman who's a cornerback who is more than able and better than I would say, three or four cornerbacks that are on our current roster.
That was just really Carolina Panthers.
Thats Eli Apple.
I was just It's funny because I have a lie, Apple written.
I wanted to get your thoughts on Eli Apple either.
Apples, I believe, was drafted by the Giants.
Uh, quite early, quite early, S.
Actually, I'm not mad at that.
I'm not mad at that.
If we decided to bring him because this would be a typical now, it's not a descendant of being because being has nothing to do with that.
But it's not a bad idea to bring in.
You have to make a trade.
You could bring in some guy that has some some some, I guess.
Um, I would like to say some tread left before he's out of league, so maybe McDermott can bring something out of him. That's what he does, man.
He brings the best out of everybody.
So I kind of I kind of don't mind that, Um, my guy.
Davion prices Rico Dan the Man great duo.
If we win the division at nine and seven, is that still a success? For us? Winning the division over the past means everything 97 is that Is that successful? 110% As long as you make the dance, it doesn't matter, because the postseason is an entire different season.
Look at the Tennessee Titans last year, right? So they were nine and seven.
They went to the playoffs and marched all the way to the A F C championship.
It's all about what team gets hot at the right time, and that's why I always say football means the most in November and December.
That's when football means that's when you got to start to get not the exacting thank you.
We got to run the ball and run the **** ball.
I tried to segway you into because I know that's your ****.
Run the **** ball and that's and that's the fact.
And right now we can't run the ball and this is my next is going to segue to the next person.
What do you? Thoughts of my guy, Brian Winters.
And I love Brian Winters so much I wanted you to get a good look at him.
You see that? Look? You see that mug? Take a good look.
Look at us and look at this.
Look at us and look at this.
Look like somebody good offensive lineman.
But unfortunately, looks are, you know, and so not on Lee.
And so we're not always describing, you know, it's gonna you say this right? It's like, super funny that you say that because during the off season, when we ended up, picking him up was talking to my buddy who's a Jets Youtuber.
His name is Richie, and he was telling me he was just like, you know what? Brian Winters.
He's a penalty machine.
And he most certainly has been for the Buffalo.
He's getting beat by defensive lineman each and every single game.
And so I think the only thing that made him look better was the fact that, like Bob Iger was in last week, that is the only reason why Brian Winters didn't look as bad as he normally was was because, like Bob Iger just ended up going on ahead and making him look like a **** Pro Bowler, because that's just how bad he essentially was.
Right, Um, that Ford injury killed us, man.
And that's why I'm so excited that Feliciano is going to be back because winter's cannot be on that **** line.
Dude, like he cannot path block.
He can't run block.
He's I'm looking very much forward to it.
I'm not sure why they're not on.
I gotta look into, like, Ryan Bates like they're not even looking Ryan bases way.
Um, am I missing something? I miss something like, honestly, I would much rather bates than bodyguard out there.
I mean, honestly, I feel like there's there's, you know, eso like I couldn't even tell you.
And you could do a better job than bodyguard.
I gotta eat a couple more phileo fishes, but we might might be able to make it happen.
Last last one for me, sir.
When you think of the word manscaping, what are two words that come to you when you think of the word man Scape, man skates Two words clean test ease, baby clean test ease.
Test like are you? Are you Have you ever use products of landscape? Do you know what I haven't? I haven't.
But I feel like since we've been having this conversation, and I feel like I've been hearing a lot about manscaping throughout the past couple of years, I'm gonna go ahead and have to investigate, right? I did hear that they have this ball deodorant, Which I Yeah.
So, I mean, I'm thinking about sort of, like, slowly getting into like that.
Can I stop you right there? Because right now, if you decide that you want to take part in getting 20% off in free shipping and refining the gentleman and refining them balls Yeah, I gotta hit up.
Use the promo code, fanatics and get your **** together because your lady will appreciate it.
Folks, stop playing games and stop playing with your balls and actually do something with them And man scape exactly what it comes down to because I'll tell you, my lady appreciates it.
She's like, Did you escape was like a **** right girl.
You **** right e sparkle e think Sparkle would appreciate it.
She would s what I'm talking about.
Eso folks. That is it.
That's the two words that we got with my dance.
So we're going to hit topics.
We've got three topics that we're gonna hit with you guys, and I think that you guys will appreciate these topics, and I'm gonna start with number one.
I hadn't written on my phone, so I'm gonna get to the number one topic right now because I think Bills fans need to know these things.
They need to know what's going on.
So let's talk about it right now.
Give me one moment while I pull this up on the telephone and go from here.
So let's talk about it.
So blah, blah. Bomb.
Are you convinced that the defense is back after that? 18 10 win, Vicks 18 to 10.
Are they back? Why? Just because of So the sample size and so like right that we saw like, I mean, we honestly ended up going into one of the most inept, like offenses in the entire NFL.
Like right at that point, Don't get me wrong.
I only liked some things that I did see.
I mean, it definitely wasn't helpful that frank or looks like a **** Pro Bowler like those for a couple of quarters, like not being often run by itself.
But I did like the way that the secondary ended up playing.
I did like how we were slowly transitioning right into zone and making plays when we needed thio.
We're not really gonna be able to see whether or not that our defense has improved until, frankly, once we played the Pats on Sunday, right? Um, as far as our defensive line is concerned like, this is a very popular take where the Buffalo Bills have the highest paid defensive line in football and we can't generate pass rush to save our lives.
But we did pretty **** good last week, right? I mean, we sacked Donald.
How many times? 56 times or pressure way? Yeah, for sure.
And so the Jets offensive line.
While it's not the best, that's vastly improved from last year, vastly improved from last year.
All things considered with their injuries and stuff along those lines, it really depends on whether or not that our defensive line can remain consistent, right and say them that 100 issue, that's all it is.
That's the key to our defense, Rico, the second that our defensive line can be consistent.
Give us performances like they gave us this past Sunday.
Then our defense is back to top five in the lake.
That is the missing ingredient right now.
So you're gonna dismiss our linebackers.
You feel good about you.
Feel good about Edmonds because right now I'm gonna is looking kind of suss He is.
And like that take was basically going off The fact when Matt Milano is on the field when Matt Milano is on the field, it seems like Edmunds plays better and I do understand that he is playing with a shoulder injury rate as in Edmonds and that's definitely a week part when it comes down to it.
But I just trust our secondary with being able to keep things in front of them along with Milano, and I'm hoping that somehow Edmonds can go on ahead and get through this injury and start feeling at least 80 to 90% when it starts counting.
But at the end of the day, say that I were toe wish that our defensive line or our linebackers would start performing better.
I am picking the defensive line each and every single day.
Wow, that's a strong take on the defense because right now I'm not trusting that defense just yet.
We had a good showing, right? We had some good defensive adjustments in the second half.
I think Donald only think past for four yards for something of that nature, something ridiculous.
So something happened.
Um, that that turned the switch.
And I'll tell you right now if Jerry Hughes can do what he did, going forward and I don't mean give me two sacks all the time.
I'm talking play with the nastiness because he came with a nasty against the Jets.
He came with it and it kind of fueled everyone else.
So I'm hoping that that combination of Jerry Hughes and that nastiness and penalty list Jerry Hughes comes back.
Are we back? No.
Um, are we to be encouraged? I think we could be encouraged because off what we were able to do against the Jets.
I mean, the jets of the Jets, right? We had to adjust, but go ahead.
Well, you were gonna say some there.
And so the one thing that I hope like I really don't care whether or not that the fans believe in the defense at this point, what I care about that the defense believes in theirselves, right? Oh, yeah.
Like, honestly, man like, I really hope that with the performance that they have gone on ahead and put out there during the second half right against the Jets game that they don't look back and be like, Oh, well, that was the New York Jets.
And so I really just have that confidence.
And I'm pretty sure that the leadership in that defense right now is instilling that right in their minds.
Like, listen, like we just held in NFL offense to fort passing yards in the second half to keep that same going throughout the exact same year.
That's what we needed, man.
Like That's exactly what we needed.
Fans could be nervous, but as long as our defense has that confidence internally, uh, and I'm gonna say this dog because I just thought of it just now.
So this was like a precursor to what potentially could happen against the Patriots.
Because we all know bills, fans, no bills.
Players know guys like Jerry Hughes that have been around for a while now know that we just have been spanked by the Patriots for such a long time.
Michael, Hide. No Joy. Jordan.
Trite whites got a little bit of that.
He knows he knows the history.
So I think the tune up was nice for us to get into the Patriots because we have already hate for them so **** much that we're going to be ready to roll.
And they needed that game against the Jets to kind of make those second half adjustments to take that momentum into Patriots week.
Now, I don't know if you know this, but I think three or four linemen of the Patriots potentially could be out for this week.
So they're gonna be rotating a whole bunch of new guys.
So This is fresh meat, blood in the water.
We need to get after that ass when we come Sunday.
But I'm getting fired up.
I gotta take a e.
Taking my water is going to fired up.
So this is a prime opportunity for us to jump all over the Patriots and take that commanding six and to lead and bury them even more on the **** depth chart.
Because I'm excuse me on the ce standing because we just need to make that happen.
So I'm glad that you feel good.
We're gonna bust their ass.
John Yoda's he he loves that.
We're gonna bust that ass.
I'll tell you that right now.
Jeremy calls are says no.
We're about to rock you, right, Rico? I'm telling you, man, we have an opportunity.
We have a grand opportunity. All right.
I'll tell you right now, Bills is going to be there gonna be super happy, and we could take that two game lead.
I'm speaking ahead of myself, but two game lead into momentum to face the **** Seahawks because that is going to be tough.
So we need all the momentum.
All the positive energy, and so that's gonna be a **** game.
And it's funny because I had no idea that the paths were hurting that bad right on their offensive line.
And so and so are any out so already, Or are they all just listen, this question right now, they're they're they're listed as questionable, more Soto out.
So right now, they even ask the old line coach, I think is Popovich or whatnot, and he's like, I don't know what we're gonna do, but we're gonna We're gonna figure something out So they're hurting.
They're hurting at the old line.
Then you have Cam Newton.
That's not playing well right now.
He's just not playing well.
Ever since the covert thing happened and you have time off hasn't done him while he's just not in sync with his receivers, I'm sure of it.
I am sure that Achille Harry's upset.
Uh, don't be ****ed, Harry.
I try to give up to my Canadians.
I tried to, but Edelman, I'm sure he's ****ed.
He's not doing it right now.
So and Belichick, who knows what Belichick is looking like right now? So That's one of the topics I wanted it.
I wanted to appreciate that second topic.
You ready for the second topic, sir? Let's do it.
So we are looking at We talked about the defense on how we feel about the defense.
So second topic we're hitting is changing of the guards at the running back position.
Can you see something happening? Is Moss on his way to taking over? And before you jump into that, I never wanted to admit it because I'm a fan of Devin Singletary.
I'm sure we all love Devin Singletary.
And Moss was looking a little suspect to me.
But he showed me something.
This game that is making me think twice about what I thought about that tandem.
And I feel that there could be a changing of the guards happening.
So I wanted to know what your thoughts are.
Do we stick with Singletary or you see something happened? Something shaping up.
Yeah, So, I mean, that's definitely an interesting question, right? And so I mean, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact with that interior of the offensive line, a lot of the reason.
You know, like, why our run game has been absolute ****.
Um, do I still believe in Singletary? Yes, I do.
And do I think that it is too early for us to go on ahead and start start dominating the snap counts for Zach Moss? Yes, but I don't think that it's going to hurt to slowly start to incorporate Zach Moss and eventually take over Singletary and not right away, because I feel like Singletary really hasn't been able to really, like reach his final form this season, especially due to the interior rate of that offensive line.
I mean, like, we had Cody Ford playing guard for the first time in his **** career, and then we have **** Brian Winters.
We had, like Bob Iger in there, You know what I mean? So our offensive line, while it's actually been pretty **** good for past protection run protection really has not really being able to carve up those run lanes have been less than stellar.
Um, as's faras athleticism is concerned.
I mean, I think Zach Moss is a better running back than Devin Singletary.
I think that he has the potential of being a better running back from Devin Singletary, but I don't think that it's too soon.
And so I think it's too soon to completely give up on Singletary.
I really want to see what we can do once Feliciano is out there.
Okay, okay, I respected.
I wanna give a shout out to my guys.
I didn't miss your your comment, he said.
Not too worried about the New England running backs will focus heavy to stop them, but we'll forget about contain.
They can get camp on the outside.
That's what he's trying to say right now.
And I'm not too worried about Cam.
Cam is Ah, he's not just there yet, but I mean, we'll see.
He's just he's not in the groove right now, Mark.
He says Mosque needs to put his money where his mouth is.
You absolutely right because he's keep telling people that is gonna make them make business decisions.
I didn't see any of that **** the other day.
E I don't see any business decisions trying.
You're trying to dance and Schukin job.
I'm not about that ****, American B seven says his Cam Newton even going to play this week because he's got he's got He got bench.
He got benched because he just wasn't playing.
Well, sometimes you just you just gotta save him from himself right now.
He was Just think the balls were thrown behind. He wasn't.
He just wasn't playing well.
They had to yank him.
It was just looking bad.
So it was a matter of it was just a matter of time, by the way.
Shout out to each and every one you guys to name.
We have 400 viewers on a Tuesday night, and I'm telling you right now, it's not because of me is because of this guy right here.
My god**** Mitchell Joining us today.
I appreciate your time, I g how are you doing for time? You good for time? I don't want sparkle to get mad.
Oh, yeah, man, we're good.
Like me, like me and sparkles have a deal that as long as it's not past 10 30 were good.
Here we go. So here's the deal.
We're gonna jump into the third topic here.
So you feel that the changing of the guard is not ready yet? Defense Secretary can still man the post.
He could still be that guy, and we don't need to make any move just yet.
I, on the other hand, feel that the changing of the guards is happening and we don't know it yet.
The coldest coming.
They had to games to see what Devin Singletary could do to really propel us for the Rams game.
He had a decent game.
He was actually pretty nice in the Rams game, but he's been somewhat underwhelming now.
I used I wanted to blame Singletary from being the guy that's just not doing it, but I realized that our guard play is not great, and that's what's not propelling him to do well.
But I do see that they're starting to incorporate mosque.
They don't wanna you think that they'd give 75 25 ratio, but since Week one they were splitting, splitting down the middle, splitting down the middle split in the middle.
I think they're waiting for one of these backs to stand out and the one that starts to stand out consistently well started gain more and I think Moss because they just don't wanna let that man go, I think Moss is going to end up being the guy that they go with because that cold weather is coming.
And what do you want to do when that cold weather come? You want to give it to your big boy? The one that's that's right in between the tackles.
So we're about to find out.
I hope I'm wrong because I love Singletary, but it seems like it's coming.
But I like I'm going to stick with yours right now because I like yours because e corporate start increasing snap.
I think so, man, Surgery seven is not ready to crown Moss until we get guards.
The guards fixed that.
We're gonna find out very, very soon.
So jumping into the next topic, my good man.
So we talked about the change of the guards of the running back last topic.
The third topic we're gonna talk on Excuse me because I'm gonna watch my time.
Is this We've got the trade deadline coming.
We make a move, and if we do make a move, where are we making this move? Yes, eso like we were talking about earlier, man like we are significantly held back with the amount of capital that we have within our cap space at this $0.
I mean, let's just go ahead and put whatever to bed where we think that we can get some type of veteran like some type of big name that's going to come to this team.
That's simply not going to happen.
I agree with you.
If we do make a move, it's going to be somebody that is still on the rookie contract, Um, that maybe they ended up finding a replacement and they didn't end up fitting within another team specific scheme.
That's what we're going to be getting.
We're not going to be bringing in somebody that's going to be a deal breaker.
A crazy like playmaker etcetera were going to be bringing in significant depth.
I'm not even saying that we're going to make a trade.
I'm thinking that we might even hit free agency.
I mean, we already touched on Eli Apple, so I think that that would probably be a great depth situation for the Buffalo Bills, especially since we're hurting significantly right in the corner back situation and then maybe eventually weaken, bring in some type of linebacker say that a team is willing to part ways that is still on a rookie contract whatsoever.
The most important thing that the Buffalo Bills need right now is the depth.
And we didn't realize that we needed depth because we were spoiled in 2000 and 19.
Somehow we ended up getting out of 2019 as healthy as they impossible this year.
I feel like we're getting karma, you know? So say that we're going ahead.
I mean to say that we do make a move, say that we do make a trade.
It's not going to be some splashy name.
It's going to be a depth move, and I'm gonna agree.
I'm gonna agree with you on that.
I don't think it's gonna be anything splashy either.
It doesn't give me being, uh, being vibes.
Especially mid season.
You off season, maybe mid season.
I can't I can't see that happening.
So I think that we don't make us. We don't make any trades.
I think we stay put $4 million.
You gotta watch that wallet and being loved to watch his wallet.
He ain't gonna just spend money, Willy nilly.
Now I am a little disappointed in what transpired with Quinton, Spain, but that's a whole different ballgame because my man just didn't wanna be even, like, be benched.
And he said, Trade me or release me, do something So they did.
They wished him.
They said, Peace the hell out.
And I think he's now joining Cincinnati Bangles so we'll find out.
But I think I'm going to stay with you.
I'm gonna agree with you.
I don't think we make any big splashes.
And if we do, it's last year.
A guy that's on a last deal, they're not really working out and last, but I think he goes free agent round.
He's waiting for guys to get released because some guys are getting released right now.
I can't read you.
I'm a release you.
And now here, being coming in and looking around this.
What's going on? So I think I'm gonna agree with you there, sir.
I think that's a That's a great point.
Um, Shawn Sherman says, Ah, double team one tech. He needs that.
He wants a big boy in the middle.
E think I think we're OK in the middle.
I don't know if you guys realize it, but Jefferson is a beast.
And if we just have that tandem of Jefferson and and my guy Ed Oliver rotating and getting in there and creating the havoc and we have that edge pressure, I think we'll be okay.
We'll be able to mask it with Milano coming back.
But Milano is a big piece of the defense.
I never thought I would say this, but Milano is a bigger piece and I thought he would.
Man Lee, I will say this.
So we need to pay him next year.
Man, how much? 13 12 11 15 17.
What do you What do you What you trying to pay him? Say 11 se 11 1 11.
He's going to look for 13 14 in my opinion, on the best ability is availability.
So that's what's gonna happen.
So I think that that's going to drive down his market price.
And I mean, I'm hoping that, like I mean, he's bought into the culture enough where he'd be able to sign like some type of, like, friendly deal.
But if not, I mean, the first thing that we addressed in the draft next year.
Needs to be a linebacker.
I'm Would you be a linebacker? I like.
I like linebacker.
I'm a big fan of it.
But I'm also I'm also looking at the interior line.
I'm also looking at the interior because I don't think I don't know, man.
I'm falling out of like with Cody Ford.
And I might It might be too soon.
My eyes were still on him, but I'm falling out of like with him and we're gonna find out I might be talking too soon.
I'm gonna leave it at that.
But linebacker drafting a linebacker, I think that would be good.
And one guy to look for my guy draft Diamond told me to look at Chazz Surratt.
I think it's Chazz Chasseriau.
Look, that name up, and I think so, Uh, we've got a few more minutes before we we get out of here.
Um, I need your game balls of last week.
We're gonna call the man scape game balls of last week.
Who did you give your man scape game balls last week? Eso How many balls don't have You got three balls you got? You got three balls with that extra ball.
T Oh, All right.
Well, I mean, first is probably gonna have to be the obvious, and that's gonna have to go to Tyler Bass.
And so there is a running joke right on my live streams.
Like during my game time reaction where this one guy always says, What are we going to get Tyler Bass or Tyler Ass? And it looks like that Tyler back.
Bass ended up showing up, then six for eight.
I mean, honestly, like you cannot not give him the game ball.
I mean, he accounted for all of our **** points during 18 and I'm hoping that that just instills confidence in him moving forward, right? And I mean, like, just like a micro take from there.
So many people are so easy to like, Sort of go on ahead and say, Okay, like this.
Kickers, a bus, this kickers bus, like you don't develop kickers, you develop kickers, man.
Look at Vinatieri's numbers. His rookie year.
Look at all the elite kickers there, Ricky years.
You develop them and they become better.
I'm hoping he gets that Tyler ass or Tyler Best.
Which one you're gonna get Tyler Ass or Tyler Best what you can get.
I'm gonna have to go with Dane Jackson.
I was not expecting.
I was not expecting him to come off of the practice squad and make the impact that he did.
Not only did he get that pick, he also had I believe it was in the first quarter of that bad away, which is huge, which ended up going ahead and making it turnover on downs, which is amazing.
I love that play.
He seemed to be in his element, man.
Um, he seemed to do very well rating coverage and zone coverage, etcetera.
So, I mean, I was super super happy with him.
And then third is gonna have to be Beasley, man.
30 he's dio he's having He's having a solid year, man, I like I like what he's doing right now.
So you have Tyler Bass.
You got Beasley, and you've got my guy Dane Jackson.
So you're gonna disrespect Jerry Hughes like that monster.
But that's okay. That's okay, because honorable.
Well, you know what we'll give honorable mention Todo Hughes.
So I gave you an opportunity for you to come up with a topic that you could hit up.
Um, and you want to ask either myself.
You want to ask the members that are watching right now? We gotta We have 425 people watching right now, and we are rocking right now. So they're listening.
Dan Mitchell. Mike is yours.
You have a topic that you can hit, you can ask myself Put out to the members.
What is your question? Your query.
Got it? Got it. Most definitely.
Okay, um, here it is.
And so this could go to Rico.
And then this could also go to the chat as well.
Let's go off a little bills, met or underwhelmed your expectations so far in 2020.
Um oh, eso exceeded.
I think I think they're They're right where I need them to be.
They're not, uh, watch out for the bills. Right.
But they're not like, Oh, man, these bills get out of here.
They're like, Okay, we gotta really, really like focus on these bills.
We got to really prepare for these bills because we we mess around.
Allen's gonna sit and put 400 yards on us.
He's gonna put 300.
He's gonna put 300 yards on us.
So you have to prepare for the bills, so they haven't really exceeded my expectations.
Um, they haven't underwhelmed.
I think they're just right where they need to be, where we need them.
How about you? How do you feel about them? Yeah, dude, honestly, like I always put it into this perspective, say, for example, that were to travel back in time into July and somewhere to tell me.
Hey, Dan, going into a week eight, the Buffalo Bills were five and two sitting on top of their division.
Then I would be clicking my ****ing heels.
My guy like I would be absolutely pumps ready to go.
I feel like weeks one through four, spoil of us men.
So I really think that one through four spoiled us.
And then our expectations ended up rising, rising after those, like first four performances.
And then once reality hit.
And then once we ended up having some setbacks, um, that, you know, we started overreacting and thinking that this was the same old bills and we were just going to be expecting another downward spiral.
Just going back right to the, um, into the 2007 bills.
Yeah, exactly one year.
What? We started five and two and stuff like that.
So, I mean, I think it's like, really, you just need to look at it from that perspective, that if someone were to tell you that we were five and two in July, then I mean, this entire narrative surrounding Bills fans right now, it would be absolutely thrilled going into it.
So I mean, would I say that they exceeded my expectations and no, not necessarily.
But I would say that they have met my expectations thus far.
All right, So, um, I actually that was a great question because right now, a lot of folks they have their predictions as to what the bills are going to be.
Uh, they give their their record predictions and a lot of people.
My man Bobby was like, Yo, if it's written, he says, I think he's He had us at 60 coming into this 60 when he had his beating the the Chiefs.
I believe I think we're at six and one so pretty **** good.
I think a lot of people felt that this was gonna be we needed Thio come out heavy and strong in the first six weeks, but here comes the heavy.
The heavy is coming in the second half of the season.
So this is where we're gonna find out what this team is really made of.
His McBean got these guys ready.
Speaking of ready, I have a feeling that one guy is not ready.
And it's starting to really annoy the heck out of me.
And that is Dawson ****ing knocks.
Hey, is he is ****ing me off and he needs to knocks it off because right now he ain't catching ****.
Now he can stay healthy, like, Come on, man.
Like you leaving the door wide open for for bills have been my guy.
Draft diamonds told me they're looking at two tight ends off the street to come in.
No, that's not supposed to happen.
So your thoughts on Dawson knocks.
Dude, Honestly, man, like I'm like, this is probably a joke that has gone way to soon.
But like, I was scrolling through Twitter and stuff like that, like when the news broke that that doesn't knocks **** Cove in 19.
Someone just finally, he caught something like e wanted to say.
But I was like, I'm not gonna be that guy like, Yeah, exactly.
Just let me be the phone.
****ing you ain't ****.
But you get catch covert. Come on, man.
Stop that bull****, boy.
Dude, leave, dude like, honestly, man, like so really, when it comes to Dawson knocks, I mean, I do understand that he is a second year rookie, but at the end of the day, man like, I mean, like, you really can't teach the ability to catch like you can't improve that I had hopes that he would.
He was saying all this stuff, that he spent a lot of time with the jug machine, really working on his mechanics and trying to be able to make those decisions.
But, I mean, he always consistently looks where he's running before he watches the ball go into his hands.
And that's just something that you can't fix and honestly like.
I mean, I'm a fan of Croft.
Dude, like Croft is like, been a guy that can catch the ball.
He's like a decent blocker.
He's doing his thing.
I think that tight end might be something that we need to look into any of the off season.
But as far as an answer to tight end, I don't think I'm unfortunately I'm in agreement with me.
I think we let Jason Crume walk a little too soon because I would love to see Jason Crume on this **** roster right now.
God, you know what I'm saying? He's getting on the roster right now and he's going to touch on the other day with the Eagles, I think was a couple weeks ago.
So it is a **** shame what happened to knocks, and Sweeney better get healthy because we're gonna get a heavy dose of Sweeney.
And I don't want to see Lee Smith on this **** roster ornate Beckton, or whether the health of the other tight end is I have a question for my God, Batman before you get out of here, Rico, why should we even be a little excited about our secondary? So underwhelming, so sad.
Here's the thing.
I'll jump in this and then you could jump in.
If you want to read before get out of here.
Um, the secondary is coming along.
You got to realize that we had trade white in and out of the out of the roster a little bit, That that kind of throws it off.
Then you had normal.
That was supposed to be our guy, but he was out at the beginning, so we never had cohesiveness at the beginning.
But there's always a revolving door, right? Yes.
Our Wallace was there, but the guy that we wanted that we needed to be there was e J.
Gaines in the slot.
Don't forget about that.
We had e j e j opted out.
Then Norman comes in.
So there hasn't been any cohesiveness on the defensive backfield, but I think that we have some things to look forward to.
I think we'll get it together.
Especially McDermott being a defensive back, uh, connoisseur defensive coach, I think he'll get that unit back to tip top shape.
What say you, sir? Yemen.
So I mean, one thing that I always try to say is that a NFL defense in a football defense in general is a culmination of a perfect ****tail.
If one unit is not doing their job, then you were going to see some regression in the other units, whether or not that that's the linebacker core.
Whether or not that that is the secondary a Sfar, a secondary is concerned.
I would say that our secondary is probably my least concern when it comes down to our defense.
I am far more concerned with our defensive line in our linebackers.
And when it comes down to the fact that everybody with the defensive line first off is still trying to desperately gain chemistry because we all know that Jordan Phillips ended up walking to Arizona.
We know that shock loss and ended up going to Miami and you get a bunch of new names, right? I mean, with Quinton Jefferson, Vernon Butler, Mario Addison.
These guys never played together.
They're still trying to gain this chemistry.
And when you can't pressure the quarterback, your secondary is going to struggle.
Secondaries make secondaries make plays, and secondaries are dawned as the king of the NFL, not because of their peer athleticism, but because their defensive line is causing so much pressure to their quarterback that they're making dumb ass reads.
So if I were to ask you which is more important, the past rush or sorry, a *** Sorry, coverage sack or your defensive line putting pressure, which is more important to you that were crushed Really hard pressure.
So you think 100 is gonna bring the interception? Or is it because our coverage, our coverage is so tight? We could get to the quarterback, which is because there's two schools of thought.
I think it's gonna have to be pass rush, man, to be honest with you much rather have a team unit.
So I would much rather have a team that is just consistently pressuring the quarterback.
I could care less about saxman like sacks are cool every now and again like that helps out the defense at the end of the day.
But just consistently being in the quarterbacks face, I don't need to see blitzes, and I don't need to see sacks.
But what I want to see is making it a very uncomfortable environment for whatever quarterback that we play.
So we have that extra opportunity for him to make a mistake.
So our athletes on her secondary can make the place, so I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna go the opposite that coverage, because if we if we make that quarterback hold the ball that second longer because of tight coverage, we don't have to get the sack, But we get a lot of pressure.
But we can't get no pressure if the balls out of 2.
3 seconds because we're off coverage and these guys were running willy nilly.
If we locked down our **** Jefferson, Hughes, freaking Harrison, even you and I could get on the line.
We could eat if our guys ****ing cover.
But we letting these guys run willy nilly and do what the hell they need to do.
We need to lock **** down.
When we go up against beast receivers, we're really gonna find out what it is.
We played a lot, a lot of scared ball against the Chiefs, and you saw how they ran all over us, right? And that they do **** for us.
So we do some coverage, a lot of quarterback to hold the ball one second, Then we're good, but that's the yin and yang.
That's the yin and yang that we have.
So that's gonna That's gonna be it for our show, man, I really appreciate your time because I know sparkles is waiting for you for her boy.
But you gave me enough time today.
We gave I believe we gave the Don Mafia a little something to chew on.
We gave the bills, the buffalo fanatics a little something you want and builds Mafia.
I think we're great.
I think we're fantastic.
Were 415 people watching right now on a Tuesday mother****ing night.
You gotta be kidding me, folks.
So that's what it is.
I don mafia my guy.
Dad, I want you to plug all your ****.
Let the people know where they could find you.
Where your handles that.
Let the let the people know what's going on, man.
What's going on? So, I mean, like, I've been on YouTube for about a year and three months.
Say that you wanna watch my videos? I mostly do the pre recorded videos.
I do live stream my full game time reaction during play, like during each and every single game.
So I mean, definitely head over to the channel.
That's just that Dan Mitchell.
And definitely come join the dumb Mafia baby like I mean, we're always we're always accepting some bills fans onto there.
Um, I did start a podcast with former safety Aaron Williams of the Buffalo Bills about a month or so ago.
We end up dropping our audio version every single Thursday night, and then the video goes on my channel. I believe on Saturdays.
That's what that's what we've been doing from there.
So I mean, definitely going ahead and check that out and say that you ever want to talk to me in real time.
The best way to do so is on Twitter, and my handle is at Riel Dan Mitchell.
And that, sir, is a professional hot take to let them know where to go get all the information he dropped.
Everything he needs to even dropped Aaron Williams.
