What is up, my man? J.
Spence, How are you? What's going on? Let me get in the sun here. I'm sorry.
What's up, man? I don't wanna be in the shade.
I want you to see me, dude. Yeah.
We can see you out there making everybody in Western New York jealous with that Arizona sun.
Welcome into the the Humpty Hotline.
A tailgate, A Buffalo Fanatics Tailgate version edition, if you will, of the Humpty Hotline.
I am your host, Joe Miller.
I am the voice of the overreaction podcast that you confined.
Well, I have a preview pod that airs on Sundays, but primarily my show airs on Mondays.
So be looking for that tomorrow.
And my due to my left.
First of all, before I introduce myself.
Dude, you know, people are saying you're like the voice of bills mafia I've seen, like, I swear I've seen I'm a screenshot in Texas.
I've seen it like eight times where somebody has said, like, actually is probably the voice of bills mafia.
No, like you just has this smooth is just like in the in the whole butter thing.
Spencer King, the host of code of conduct and the host of the chop up, Uh, that is I don't know, it's kind of in jeopardy, but I don't know, as far as today because of this.
Oh, it was happening.
If it airs 7, 15 plus three hours is 10 15 Eastern standard time.
So if you go live, it would be right.
Would be 10 15 ish somewhere on there.
Yeah, I don't know.
Well, the issue isn't even that the issue is because Mookie does the interviews.
And then when people watch the game right after, um, nobody's gonna watch because I would wanna watch the game too. But we'll see.
I sent the S O s out to a few people.
We'll see what happens.
Right? Right, right, I do.
You need to get out of the way.
I heard somebody backing up near you, and I'm nervous.
I'm near nervous for you, so No, no, that's Yeah.
Welcome in everybody to a special Humpty hotline on a game day.
And this is the cool thing.
So So, fanatics does these tailgate shows which are awesome, and you and I never get to be a part of it because I work on Sunday mornings, and my job is relatively demanding, so I don't get to be the a part of it.
So where as much as a lot of people in bills Mafia as much as the Mafia hates one o'clock games released a lot of them Dio, uh, you know are not hates, loves one o'clock, games, hates non one o'clock games.
So let me get that right.
Uh, it's kind of special for us because we actually get to join in the tailgate fun.
So and I know there's a lot of people that the tune into these things, but we get to talk about this football game.
Cardinals versus the Bills, the Bills in Arizona, which is probably good because we've got a front that's about to come through this city, which, by the way, if we lose power, uh, you're gonna lose the show.
Jay, we tried to test that J.
Spence might stay on by himself.
Hey, he'll have no control over the comments whatsoever, and it'll will be just basically waiting for the power to come back on over here.
But ah, a lot of good people in a room.
Amy Pelosi's in room What's up, Amy? It's good to see you being part of the show.
John Taylor LeBron is near Chad Cooper.
A lot of new names that we haven't seen on the Humpty Hotline, so welcome into the show.
So let's get this started.
Spencer in Cardinal Red.
I don't know. Richard Rush.
No, he's wearing the J.
He's wearing the next future Hall of Fame quarterback.
I'm wearing the first I'm wearing the last Hall of Fame quarterback Jay Spence is wearing the Josh Allen.
So why don't we start here? Why don't we start with inactive? So the inactive list came out? Um, and then actors for today are clearly Jake from, uh, the surprise here is Cody forward to my To my for me, I'm not sure what's.
Excuse me, What's going on with Harrison Phillips? Um, and I think that's a question.
A lot of bills Mafia is asking.
You have any thoughts like what is going on with Harrison Phillips? Is it is energy injury, Or is it something else? Honestly, I think it's his injury still like, you know.
Now I know he's been playing, and I know he looks healthy to some degree.
And I know that you know, the A C l has been forever ago now, technically last season.
But I'll tell you like it takes guys two years sometimes really turned back or get back Thio where you were prior to the injury.
Honestly, man, I don't think Harrison is himself or his normal self that we're used to seeing him, you know, as a player.
So I think that has a lot to do with it, right? And jumping over to the gameday roster.
Thean actives were over here to the right, all the way to your far right.
What is missing are a certain couple of guys dudes that got that we found out yesterday.
If you've been living in Iraq ended up with the Kobe designation, one of those, the primary one was Josh Norman and Josh Norman was ready set to come back, uh, and and and play this game.
Injured, uh, had recovered enough from his hamstring injury and he took with him due to proximity protocols he took with him. Levi Wallace.
He took with him Dean Marlow, and he took with him and we were just talking about this.
Oddly enough, Tyler Kroft, which from approximately standpoint is a little weird.
Like I'm not sure if that's from a coverage thing like he was there, a garden, Tyler Kroft.
Or if they're just buds and they hang out there definitely part of the same position group.
That's why it's weird to me.
It's like, Wait a minute, Okay, Tyler Kroft, You've got mail, too.
So he avoided the first one with Dawson knocks and got whacked with this one.
So it has been completely through our tight end room.
How do you think that's gonna affect us today? I'm excited to see Day in Jackson.
That's just me. That and that was where I was going to go.
It's like, you know, first, I hope that Josh Norman and the people that he's been in contact with who are on the designation list I hope that everybody is okay and healthy and doing well.
But from a football fan standpoint, I kind of want to see Dane checks and, you know, I want to see him.
Um, I wanted to see him in that role if if Norman or um yeah, Levi was, you know, if they were healthy, I still wanted to see more Dame Jackson.
So, um, to me, there's just another opportunity for him to prove himself and hopefully, you know, he makes the coaching staff, you know, really want to give him some more time because I feel like he deserves it, man.
Like I think this kid is He's definitely He should have been hired, you know, in the draft.
And iwas Yeah, for sure, for sure.
I love this comment.
Bada Bing Crosby.
Welcome to the show. Thank you for being a part of the conversation.
Can't wait for this game.
This is a huge one for shutting up the Josh narratives.
I was just gonna say I have thoughts about this.
I'd love to know your thoughts about this.
I just don't feel like it is like, I feel like like first bada Bing Crosby.
I'm not saying your wrong.
Like I feel like it should be.
Like, I feel like if we're gonna be honest and yeah, like every game, Josh shuts people up, though it's like we've been talking about this since last year. On Thanksgiving.
That was the game like, Oh, if if the bills could go into Dallas and when Josh is here.
Josh went down there and destroyed Dallas.
Then he did the same, and I get it.
It was only it was against Duck High, just But he did the same thing at Pittsburgh, then in the playoffs.
Okay, Yeah, we didn't win the game because of whatever reasoning you wanted to have.
But Josh looked phenomenal in that first half, and he looked pretty good in the second half with a couple of mistakes.
Now, this season, they're like, Oh, if he beats L.
Okay, we beat L.
They were like, Oh, if he beats, okay, we beat them now.
It's like if he beat Seattle, we beat Seattle.
Now all of a sudden, it if we beat Arizona with a guy who's in the second year, who now I'm a Tyler, I mean, in the title crime, I'm a Kyler Murray fan.
So don't don't think that I'm saying it where I'm trying to diminish who he is or act like He's not a great player, but Josh Allen is in his third year, he's seven and two as a quarterback for the team.
This year, he's in the top five for passing yards touchdowns.
Like literally every statistic.
He's like topping the league, and we're still saying he has to beat a guy in the second year before we can say we're gonna Josh Narrative.
Yeah, I believe that, you know we're living And and he got voted by from by the fans.
As for Fox, is the first half of the season M v p.
So, yeah, still worried about it? I'm not sure that that narrative is going to stop, so even a shrugs.
Peter Schrager, who's the primary one right now, said that if they beat the Cardinals, I'll believe e don't think it's true.
Welcome into the show, bro.
Thank you so much for the Super Chat, by the way, for those of you that their that their first Time watchers or first time listeners, if you want to get our attention, you need to be on YouTube and throw us a super chat.
It jumps up super highlighted like that, so it's easy for us to see otherwise.
A lot of times the chats get lost on us, so we apologize.
We miss your chat.
However, if you want to get our attention.
Super chat Scott Van Loo says, With all with all with or with some of our with all with some with some of our players out that have been covered 19 and some of the players banged up that are not playing.
Do we have a chance of winning of Joshua on plays like he played against Seattle? Of course we had.
Of course, we had a healthy team for that game.
The answer is yes.
Um, the Bills have a great chance of winning this football game, regardless which we can talk about.
We can transition, and I would love to know at this point time as it pertains to the people that are in the room watching us.
Eso bills, mafia, that air in the room.
Let us know what you think right now.
Let me know what you think. The keys to the Bills.
One of this football game is the big one for me, and it's not a surprise.
Is the big one that everybody's talking about is containing Kyler Murray, whatever that means.
And I said in my preview show on my preview pod, you know they need to make sure that whoever beats them does not have the name Murray on the on the back of their jersey like there's an aspect of like they need to force Arizona to beat them with somebody other than Kyler Murray.
The problem is, is even with Kyler, it's a pick your poison situation.
Do you want him to beat you with his arm, or do you want him to beat you with his legs? Uh, I know that you're in Arizona, Steve judges Judge Mathis is in Arizona.
He talked a lot today, just about some narratives going around in that locker room that, like Kyler, Murray apparently was holding some emotion back last week.
We know that DeAndre Hopkins ran off the field last week, upset, ****ed off by how the game ended.
Eso I'm not saying there's bickering going on a turmoil, but you can speak to you got a different level of connection to that team that we have.
What are your thoughts? What's it gonna take? So wild? Spence is talking.
Everybody tell us what you think.
The keys to this football game are well out here amongst Cardinals fans.
The frustration is honestly, it's just that they people feel entitled in a way like they feel like that they they should be there already.
So for them, the frustration is when they take the losses to teams like Miami and they feel like they're better than they do feel like they're better football team than a Buffalo Bills.
Regardless, record says they feel like that.
So the thing is, you know, having conversations with Cardinals fans out here, they just feel like their overall better team top to bottom and that Kyler Murray and I agree about the fact that Colin Murray has the it factor.
He's that guy he really is, and I know it's the second year I know his first year.
He didn't look as great, but I'm telling you, the kid is special, so I get it.
But the thing is the key to victory for us.
I know you mentioned containment Wednesday on the hump day when we had our show up.
I felt like it's not as much containment as it is confusion, because if if we contain him, he still has a freaking rock it like I know we short and and sometimes like the height of the lines, kind of getting this vision of you know his line of vision, but But he still has a cannon.
He's accurate, you know? So it's not about containment.
It's not about breaking the pocket.
It's about confusion.
We have to give him.
Looks like last week when Trey got the interception on Russell Wilson.
When you know he was covering the outside guy and he kind of slipped in.
And we got to do confusing things and we gotta get coward Thio kind of just not be familiar with the fronts that we're giving them eso.
But I do think that the bills are by far a better football team.
You know, Wednesday, I'm like, you know, don't don't just go into this thinking that we're gonna blow them out, we're not gonna blow them out.
But we should win convincingly like it should be one of those games where buffalo is in control.
A sfar us from a defensive standpoint, you know? And some of this is gonna be rehashed from what I put on my show that came out today as far as my podcast.
You know, the reality is for me eyes.
You know, this defense is improving this defense is finding itself.
And even with losses on defense, we should be getting Michael hi back today, which is huge on Jerry.
Jerry Hughes is playing like a like a man on fire, like the dude is just going out there and bawling.
And he's kind of becoming that leader, that proverbial leader.
I like identity of the team that we've been like the vocal guy that we've kind of been looking for, that I think this defense has been lacking with the loss of Zo with the loss of Kyle, Um, just that veteran leadership.
But I think as well I think it were worst case scenario.
Worst case bills lose.
But I think if this if this plays out the way that I think it will, which is a w you know, I think we're talking 37 35 you know what I mean? 35 32.
I think it's a very high scoring game.
I think it comes down to somebody put in here turnovers. I agree.
I don't know that we're gonna get four turnovers on Kyler, but you know, for all intents and purposes, you know, turnovers.
We're gonna play probably play a part in this game.
So if Josh comes out with his hair on fire on plays like he did against Seattle, you know it's gonna put them on the It's funny because when you begin is an offense start if you when you begin dictating to a defense, any defense at that level at the at the weeks, one through four level at the at the Seattle game level.
Not only does it put the defense the opposing team's defense on their heels, but it puts their offense on the heels, too, because all of a sudden they got to keep up.
And that's a big challenge.
I mean, it's a zoo.
Muchas like there's explosive offenses and offenses in the NFL this year have, like, really done a number on NFL defense's.
There's something about coming out and like and really kind of imposing your will on somebody, and I think the Bills have the ability to do that, James FX, 90 says.
As long as we stay consistent on defense and contain any running efforts, Edmonds will pick up or we'll pick off pick off tiny Kyler at least twice.
I don't know, e don't think it's that simple.
E do wanna Tremaine Edmunds to bring him up right now is a good point.
He's healthy on.
And I think that that will see, you know, a better performance from him and the defense.
Kind of what you alluded to a few minutes ago.
E think the defense is you know, e think it was a player who mentioned the other day Like, I think we figured something out and we're gonna keep working with it, s o.
I mean, hopefully we did figure something out.
And Darren Lee being added to the active roster today to me is exciting.
We have speed in that linebacker position.
He ran a 443 eso thio hopefully be able to cover the tight end and cover, you know, running backs coming out the back field.
At some point, I'm hoping that we can improve in that area.
And if the defense you know, if the defense can get one or two more stops than they get on us, this is our game.
And that's what it's the same thing I said last week.
This is what it comes down to their own explosive offense.
We have to get more stops than they do.
And we have to score more.
And I know it's simple like, Oh, the point is you score mawr and you stop, But literally that's what happens, man.
You got it. You got to stop them and you got to score.
Welcome into the show.
God loves you. We missed you on Wednesday.
So we were patiently awaiting your arrival on Wednesday to We were waiting for you, man.
Tete a little bit of crow.
But we're gonna do our best today.
So for those of you don't know that don't know God loves you is a is a Seahawks fan.
And he was He was awful chatty with us, which was great.
We love the conversation back and forth with him a couple Wednesdays ago.
Uh, s So he just said Good game against against the Hawks.
Do him a favor and beat the Cardinals.
We're gonna do our best.
We're absolutely going to do our best.
I think the interesting thing about Kyler Murray and you and I talked about it.
There's an opportunity there from a turnover standpoint.
Not so much in in in our interceptions unless they're able to confuse him to your point.
But even watching highlights of him again today, a Zai was just kind of getting ready for, you know, obviously this show in the game, the game this afternoon, the way that he runs with the football and and the way his drop point, like when he goes to throw the ball and it comes down, he drops it down around his hips and then comes back up and over.
I think if if a defense, if the Bills defense of any defense can just be in the queue on that and it's not something that's going to destroy his career, we're not talking about something that's like, Oh my gosh, I figured him out.
He's, you know, he'll never be the same.
It's something that he's gonna have to correct like, but I think they're still in opportunity.
There's gonna be opportunity to knock the ball out and the question is, will the Bills be on top of it? Can they catch him right, so they can they get up right? But I guess my my question to that is like, I'm sure if if you and I can see that on film.
And like when we watched the game, I'm sure NFL teams have seen it.
You say that when I'm just saying I'm sure they've seen it, and it's one of those things where it's like it's it must not be Azizi like e get it.
He does hold it in opera way that you would think like man, we should be able to punch the ball out.
But it's like, you know, every week he comes out and he has a 80 are scrambling and then he has 320 you know, it's like every week he comes out when he's doing things, and it's just like, Okay, maybe the bills will be the team to key in on that. Yep.
Welcome to the show, Mike.
Thank you for the chat.
I brought this up for you off the air.
We started talking a little bit.
We kind of shut the conversation down just because we wanted to have the real nous.
The freshness on the air eight and two if we win this football game and it's a big if they've got to play the football game 18 to going to buy is mouthwatering.
You had some interesting takes on that.
What it means for this Buffalo Bills football team.
So the first, the first bit of it, is right now.
The Buffalo Bills therefore no in the A f C East, which is something that we should be proud of.
It's something that we should be happy about, regardless of how the games were played, like regardless of what the scores were.
Secondly, as it stands right now, we're two and against the NFC West.
If we win the game today will be three.
And, oh, coming back after the bye, We're going to go up against a beat up San Francisco 40 Niners team if we can sweep the NFC West and even if we're five and one in the A F C East, Um, it's something that hasn't been done since 1993.
The last time that happened, the Buffalo Bills were in the Super Bowl.
Now I'm not that guy for saying that history always repeats itself in the same way.
But what I will tell you is history other than just with the Buffalo Bills will tell you that when teams are good enough to sweep a different division.
You control your division.
You're probably one of the top four teams in the NFL, right? So that gives us a good chance to be there in in the NFC Championship.
And it gives us a good chance to actually being that conversation.
Talking Super Bowls. Man like this is a good.
This is the best team that we've had and forever, man.
We should be exact time.
And that's coaching staff.
We've had a long time Ryan Field in the house, he said.
There's 103 people here.
I've got 105 watching on YouTube. $100.
Ah, 140 ish between all the platform action.
Don't smash that, Like hump that, like so jump on that like button.
Whatever platform you're watching on guitar metrics up.
We would appreciate that.
Uh, I don't know that we do today.
If you feel you e did it last time.
I did it Wednesday.
I did it Wednesday.
I did it Wednesday.
I don't think we got to do it. I don't think it's required today.
What if I did? That was what if I did that? We still have to read it.
It's God is God.
What's this one? I'm functioning.
Functioning through all the different things, but yeah, Dude, that's funny.
Eso were sidetracked me, bro.
Uh, just in case anybody is wondering, we are This show Buffalo fanatics is sponsored by man scape.
Uh, if you are one who lets the downstairs area get completely out of control, there's a way to keep that in controlling.
To keep the one that you love happy with you and might find out that she wants to be near you more often, or at least near that part of your body.
Uh, jump over the landscape dot com type of the promo code fanatics.
We're gonna give you 20% off of anything that you order and get free shipping, which is a really, really big deal.
Uh, Evie says Wyoming.
Shout out, please.
So what's up, Wyoming? It's good to see you.
Good to have you in the house.
Uh, I don't know.
We keep getting Corona.
We don't really want to probably get into pandemics in politics because you can't talk one without the other.
So we're just gonna push on from that? I think he's asking how we're like players are getting it.
Uh, well, it's It's gonna happen.
I mean, you're talking about regardless of where you fall on Cove in 19.
So I wasn't gonna talk about it, and I'm not gonna.
But regardless of where you fall and I'm not like it's clearly not fake, it's not a planned Em****.
There's not an aspect of it not being riel.
There's, you know, there's different information out there as it pertains to how deadly it is or isn't or was when it started versus how it is now.
This is the reality.
It's incredibly contagious, like when you get near people, it's more contagious than a cold.
It's more contagious than a flu.
It's more contagious to chicken pox like it's very contagious, so it doesn't take much.
And the funny thing about it is, I'm not sure that the scientists know exactly how it's being transmitted, because you would think if everybody that's the big thing on Twitter is to blame the non mass squares like Oh, it's all those people not wearing masks.
Well, why aren't they getting it right? It seems to be that it's just it doesn't really, it doesn't play favorites.
It goes after everybody.
So it's contagious.
That's all we can tell you.
And unfortunately they're getting it.
The good news is, is the NFL is doing a very good job of keeping it under control, and I think that's what's exciting.
And probably the best part is there's been a lot of NFL players that have gotten it.
We've heard nothing about anybody that I know of having any serious, like super like like career lasting stuff like in their lungs and nobody has died. There have been no players.
And if you remember Spencer and I talked early before the season started, that was the biggest concern.
Like, is it? What happens if one person died like one player dies? Like was it worth? What is it worth playing this season? The answer is probably no right, so it just kind of one of those things, but I don't know. I'm reading.
I'm going through the comments.
Uh, what what? What is the most surprising or what is going to be the most surprising thing you think we see today in this football game? Alright, don't get my My audio went out, E here, coming through your speakers.
I was wondering what you thought.
The most, uh, surprising thing is that you're gonna see today.
So whether let's do offense first, what's the most surprising thing you think you're gonna see on offense today? Uh, same thing with the Bills. Mafia in the chat.
What's the most surprising thing thing you think you're gonna see from the Buffalo Bills? Uh, on offense today, I think Zach Moss runs for 125 yards.
That's that would be surprising.
Especially when I'm under the impression that Josh Allen is gonna just come out like you did before.
I mean, you're talking.
You want to know? I agree.
I think it's gonna be one I think is gonna be an offensive date to remember.
Where? Where does one thing we have not talked about? Where does all of the, uh, emotional what? The buildup? Right.
So, Josh Allen, he finds out his grandma dies on Saturday, plays football on Sunday and plays out of his mind.
Is there pressure for him? I don't think the way that I wanted to ask that.
Like where we at on this idea that Josh Allen might want to come out to prove to bills Mafia.
You know, I know you love me and you love my family.
And you did this.
I'm gonna show you that I love you.
Is there pressure there that could potentially blow up in his face? Or is it another situation where he's just gonna find his own? And he's just gonna think of that? Like, to me, that wasn't even a thought.
So I mean, that's a good question, I guess.
Um, wow, I to me, I would feel like there's no pressure to me when it's love like that.
It should just be love And he should feel the love and he should know that Buffalo loves him and he should love Buffalo back and just go out and play.
But no, that's a good Honestly, that's a good question.
I didn't even think of in that sense.
Yeah, it will be interesting to see, because this Arizona Cardinals defense is not exactly great, right? We know that.
So they're not They're not great against the past or not Great.
Against the run on the bills air.
Amazing passing the ball and they've got they've come around good running it.
We're getting much more back.
Feliciano's going back to guard.
That spells great things for this offense.
From a run standpoint, somebody put in here.
That could be just a surprising like like or I think you just said it like this could be one of those games where it's just like the data you said a day to remember for this offense.
That's what I was going with that So Mark Berg, Thank you so much for the super chat.
Your comment did not come through.
Your question did not come through.
So do me a favor.
Get your comment or your question in there, and I'll make sure that I pull it up and we will read it.
So thank you so much for the super Chat your marriage.
I'm tryingto like I'm trying to see you because it's so sunny out here.
Like I keep E keep moving because the sun is in my eyes.
You know, I'm about I'm about to.
I'm about to cut J.
Spence loose for bragging.
I'm sorry, Way got weather events.
We've got weather events going on up in here in Buffalo, New York, but Yeah, so market.
That's what you want to see.
Another big defensive stand.
I'll be honest with there is what so surprised on offense that's we just talked about, Uh, I believe firmly that this game, you know the Bills are going to win it or could potentially will win it 35 to 32 37 35.
But to see this Bills defense continue to find itself.
Imagine a football game to Mark's point, another big defensive stand.
Imagine this football game if, like this offense comes out like they did against the Seahawks and at the same time this defense shut them down like turns into the defense from last year.
Like, dude, if if this game is like a 28 06 Yeah, I'm just telling you, first of all, so tomorrow I'm gonna have Mark Maddox on.
I'm talking to him tomorrow for the Tuesday episode of Code of Conduct.
It will be one of those episodes that Mark probably won't want to interview with because I'm gonna be so ridiculously obnoxious and arrogant as a Bills fan.
Why aren't I at the game? Because I don't believe in spending $500 Thio sit alone.
That's why I'm not at the game.
It doesn't make sense.
And, you know, And I had some plans with with a couple of the guys, and it just didn't kind of, you know, the way with co vid everything happening.
It just it doesn't make sense for, you know, I want to keep our team safe, just like everybody else does.
So I'm not I'm going to be around our guys.
Unfortunately, yeah, this is This is this is put there is potential in this Dustin, I like where your head's at with Tyler Kroft.
Somebody else asked.
Are we gonna miss Tyler Kroft today? I think. Potentially.
Um, And there, You know, when you talk about emotion and you talk about just where people that are in their headspace, you know, is Dawson knocks not reeling, but is he feeling the pressure a little bit like to form, right? Because of what's going on with Tyler Kroft? I mean, Dawson strikes me as a guy that just loves to be a part of this team.
We know that he's good friends with Josh Allen and the rest of the offense, but is this again he could break out.
Is this a Dawson? But you know what it shouldn't be because of what's going on with Tyler.
He should feel the pressure because he's been.
He hasn't played well.
He hasn't performed up to Standard, and the thing is, he drops the ball.
That's the narrative right now that that Max is a horrible catcher of the football.
When he catches the football, he does amazing things with it.
But there's times that he doesn't catch the ball when we need him, too.
So he should feel he should feel that he needs to come out and prove that.
Hey, I could be a reliable target for Josh, whether Tyler tolerance here or not.
You know it is the second year, and I get it like we give these guys long leashes.
But when you're on a team that feels like they can contend, you don't have those same leashes like you can't be developed for 345 years, are you? Are you the guy or not like, Do we need to draft another guy next year? Right, right.
And what's funny is he has all the talent, skill, inability.
He does He's already has all of it.
Everything that you want to make up of a tight end Big.
He's got size like he's tall.
He can run like he can block.
He just he needs to slow down and secure the football.
Uh, you're good, so I'm down.
I'm down in my office in the ba*****t of my house here in Lakeview, New York in the South Towns in Hamburg haven't been outside in about an hour and a half.
Eso apparently the weather is ramping up, so my guest is, is what was rolling through Cleveland and destroyed Greg Thompson's backyard.
Uh, did you see the video in the stadium in Cleveland like the right into the video? I saw Greg's tweet, though, where he's like Mom knows, because the Lord saved the grill during the national anthem for the Cleveland game.
The rain was blowing this way, like, literally straight across, and people were just getting pelted like they were bullets.
So, yeah, I have not done it, so I can't hear anything.
I've got headphones on, though.
I can't hear anything necessarily, but But what do you think as faras? What are your thoughts? A zit pertains to just what's going on with Bills, Mafia and this whole Patricia Allen thing and just the way you know, everybody's now. I was surprised.
I just wanted it to be what we raised for Andy Dalton, the 424 whatever it was Air Force 13 When he got to a half a million, I was like, Oh, and like now people are making calls like Let's get it to 716 $16,000.
Um, I think they're gonna hit a million.
You think they're gonna get to a million? I think we're gonna have a million.
Like the love for Josh Allen is, and I know like it came across as a joke.
But I tweeted like, get you some friends that loves you the way Buffalo lost loves Josh Allen.
And I know what kind of like blew up in Buffalo format.
But it's the honest to God, truth like the way Buffalo feels about Josh, even myself.
Like I'm out here in Phoenix, man, and I'm driving and like so there's a politician out here named John Allen and he has these signs up.
So, like with the election going on, every time I would drive by.
I'm like Alan Josh, like there's a love for Josh.
That's not the same.
It's just not that we haven't had this type of love for a quarterback, Probably since I would I would say Flutie, like when Flutie Flakes like he had the flu team, anything go on.
But I feel like we love him even more than that.
But it's like we haven't had it.
So I just feel like the type of love that the city has for Josh, Man, it's gonna be one of those things.
That's just gonna you know, we'll look back on his 20 years from now, and it's just gonna be something on his resume, you know, as far as his relationship with the city that you know.
It's just gonna be an incredible story.
And as much as this is, this is big Dustin.
Thanks again for the chat.
Jordan. Jordan Phillips is out. Question Mark.
Yeah, he's been out for a couple days.
He heard his hammy last week.
I think he only had six or eight snaps last week.
You can you see.
That is that's what Yeah, I took my jersey off because I'm sweating.
I'm sitting outside doing the God And this This this show is about to be.
This is what I'm this one. This is what I do to you.
Jason just e kicked.
Try to add you back, kick myself out to I want to try to flex with my bills and Yankee shirt.
I was I'm seriously sweating doing this like it's hot out here.
So you're a jerk is what you are.
I love you a za Muchas and you and I've gone back and forth about this a little bit.
As much as I don't think.
I think Jordan Phillips not being in this game is big for the Bills.
And it's not because Jordan Phillips, to some crazy great talent, is because Jordan Phillips has shown us that against the Dolphins.
He comes to play when he's playing against his former team.
So I think this actually helps the Bills Jordan pills because he would have come with compassion.
He would have wanted to show this team that they made a mistake and they should have kept him regardless of where he's at, because the Dolphins were horrible, e don't think, Yeah, I mean, he could have came with that energy.
I don't think it helps to build because I don't think he's good of a player.
Is everybody's giving him credit for with his energy or not like he's good and I'm happy he got his contract, but like we're giving, his got way, too.
If he was that good, he would have had a really big market when he left.
The reason why he signed with the Cardinals is because the Cardinals sort of seemed to offer him that money.
He did not have the market that, like the way Bills fan, it's the same thing happened last year like I don't know if you remember last season like everybody in, UM, we were nervous about Fitzpatrick when we were playing Miami.
As if he was like better than Tom Brady is like, Oh, but Fitz is this.
It's like Dude, if that was the case, Fits would be a Super Bowl champion quarterback on whatever team.
Like let's stop giving Jordan Phillips the credit that he's just not that good, man.
Yeah, it's clear to me that Jordan Phillips, that whatever went down in Miami when they released him and the Bills picked him up that there was no love lost there like they did not like each other.
Phillips wanted out.
Yeah, for all intensive purposes.
Jordan wanted out and they wanted him gone, and it was very much.
I'll show you what I've got.
I just like I said, I'm talking about putting it, you know, putting it in a box or putting it in a bubble.
I'm not talking about Jordan Phillips being great.
Jordan Phillips played three great games last year.
Two of them were against the Dolphins.
One was against the Titans.
I mean, it's so there's an aspect of like, I'm just glad I don't have to see it like I don't have to see him second Josh Allen, then doing one of these on the sideline like I just don't want to see it like it's OK.
It's only 4000 fans there, so it's not like it's gonna be too loud.
So 2nd, 2nd ago, I asked you about your biggest surprise today prediction on offense and we got some decent comment.
It's funny cause there's 144 people up here I've got 55 likes on YouTube.
22 I think on Facebook.
But the chat isn't super Super Super live.
I'd love to see some more people in the chat.
Let's get up in the chat.
I can't quite see it today like I normally do, but yeah, let's get in there.
Yeah, s Oh, I gotta I gotta jump on this because Lone Wolf was on point.
All the financial hardships during over 19 the bills, Mafia point out donations is absolutely amazing. It's true.
But that's that's who we are.
This is Buffalo.
I mean, this is exactly who we are.
Eso surprises on offense We talked about What do you think about surprises on defense? What? What is going to be what you think is gonna be your surprise today? And defense? I'm going to go against something that I debate with you about all the time.
I think Trey White is going to shut down dehap.
I think nuke might have maybe like, three receptions for like, 40 yards.
You know, like e think that Trey White is gonna show today that he is the best if not the second best cornerback in the National Football League.
Yeah, I'm gonna jump on this because it's been asked, like, three or four times.
James Parson asked Any idea why we keep bringing up Jake Kumerow? No.
I read it that they brought him up yesterday, and I was like, I don't know who this guy is.
And I talked about the bills, like, three times a week.
Like Position E is a wide receiver.
Um, no, I don't No idea.
So for me, special teams, he's probably gonna fill in on special teams.
That's probably a good point.
I cannot With Taiwan Jones being out and who else was out? Um, obviously, Marlowe's a special teamer, as is eso he's filling in.
We won't see him, you know he won't make a catch unless we're up by, like, three touchdowns.
That Richard Richard Russia's on it.
So that's exactly right.
Wrong, But, uh, you're good.
We're almost done working out here about 25 minutes.
Surprised, wise on the defense.
Um, and this is just I don't know.
Normally when I get when I get a gut feeling about something.
I'm completely wrong.
Um, just the way that I can't go with the tray white over the D hop thing because I feel that's gonna happen.
I think Trey is going to do a good job against I'm not saying Hopkins gonna get shut down.
I just think Trey is gonna do what Trey does against Hopkins.
We'll see. I like what you said for me. The surprises.
I think Dane Jackson makes e think he makes a statement in this football game.
E yeah, I think I think the flash because they're gonna throw away from Trey, you know, they're gonna e mean they're gonna target.
They're gonna target d hop 567 times, which is again Dane is gonna get his work.
And I think Dave is gonna get his work. I think he's gonna flash.
There's a physicality that he brings that that's different from every other corner on this football team.
He's a sure tackler, which is something we have not seen from from basically other other other fans or other other players.
I'm sorry I got confused by something that came up in the conversation.
Now e, think danger e think he's the big surprise player today? A.
So far as that goes, I think it's just gonna be, uh, it's awesome.
Listen, it's November and I'm sweating and I need a number.
You are so right.
You are so right.
This would be Alexander, McLean says. Biggest surprise.
We get seven plus sacks today.
Considering that do you know the number? How many times he's been sacked this year? He's been sacked seven times, 11 times seven.
No, We got sacked seven times last Sunday, but I think the number 7 11 so 11 times he's been sacked this year.
Seven of those 11 were his fault.
But if we got seven plus sacks today, that would be a huge surprise.
If he gives us seven sacks, I'll take him.
Yeah, this would be a surprise.
Klein continues to look like an NFL player.
E don't know if he's going to get his many reps.
I think Darren Lee is well, at least I hope well, no, but you know what a decline played well last week.
That's what that's what he's talking about A. J continues.
Like that would be, I would say that would be unequal.
So, yeah, James says, Take Dean Jackson, Pick six, and cards do not score double digits. Wow.
So dangerous for the pick six.
It would be amazing to see Danger.
Axon the pick six.
Surprised on D is gonna be.
Oliver finally has a stellar game.
Two sacks, two tackles for loss.
I think he was on the show Wednesday to shut out the James.
You know which one. Well, there's two.
There's James F. D.
And then there's the one that you just put up like James F X D or yeah, but no shot.
I think he was there Wednesday.
It jumped on me.
So which it? It does once in a while.
That cardinal I know is suspect exposed them.
The thing about this car, this is a great comment, and the reason that it's a great comment is because the Cardinals were very a zoo, much as they had the number one pick in the draft and they took Tyler. That's correct.
Tyler was a number one pick in the draft when they drafted is that right? Say something? Wasn't.
Wasn't Tyler the number one pick in the draft when the Cardinals took him? Eso.
The funny thing is, the Cardinals have had a suspect offensive line forever on.
What they did is they went and got the one guy that loves chaos.
John Marino said it like he he invites it into his life like he wants to be pressured he want.
And remember what I was watching.
But they were talking about Kyler and his ability to reset his feet that he reads.
So when he's scrambling, he can literally just stop, reset his feet, throw the ball like it comes out that you have very fast.
Um, so as much as it is, that cardinal line is suspect, my expectation is the bill's gonna do everything they can to keep keep him inside the pocket, to not let him speak out.
And that was That's my thing.
I feel like we're not going to see is much, um, blitzing and pressuring.
As far as trying to get him toe, extend plays and move the pocket.
I think we're gonna try to shut it down to where there's nowhere for him to throw it and hope that, you know, when he does decide to break containment or when he does try to do things we hope that weaken, you know, get to him before he gets the first down or a huge game or a game or whatever, but yeah, no, uh, exposing the offensive line is actually a strength for that team.
Believe it or not, I know that sounds crazy.
It doesn't make sense.
It's the opposite of what we grow up thinking and talking about as far as football goes.
I know if you're watching this Buccaneers game, but Teddy Bridgewater just scored a touchdown to make this score 32 Tampa.
And, uh, it looks like if they give it to him people.
People slept on Teddy over the off season.
I kept telling them like, Look, I know the Cardinals aren't I was gonna be a top five team, but I'm like Teddy.
Bridgewater is a good quarterback.
He's a Cardinals Panthers.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
Yeah, Ted, he's a good quarterback.
Like he When he was with the Vikings before that knee injury, I felt like he was he was on.
Um, he was on a trajectory that would have had him like top 10 in the league.
He just wasn't quite there yet.
But he was growing.
And you could see it.
Men to go and sit behind Drew Brees for a year.
And then And then Now, you know.
Okay, I get the opportunity to lead a team they brought in.
Um, they have d J.
You know, they have weapons for him.
Now you get your best running back, isn't he? He's out now with a shoulder.
Right? Um uh, okay, but but yeah, no.
Teddy's Teddy is the real deal. Man.
He again he's not a top three.
No, I'm not saying that he's going to take you to the Super Bowl every year, But listen, if you put a good defense around him and some good pieces, you have a shot to win some games with him, man, he's a good quarterback.
Agree quality Air con says big surprise past kicks a game winner. This is possible.
This is highly probable.
Like, dude, if Tyler Bass kicks a game winner, you buy New Jersey to go with my heart and I will buy Jersey.
I will buy it any game winner or this game winner? No, this game.
No any game winner this season for the remainder of the season.
If he kicks a game because I don't I don't trust him.
I just don't trust his confidence at this point.
When anything is is when it's worth something other than three points, like she looks like it matters.
No, I don't I don't know.
I don't trust him.
If he kicks, if he kicks a field matter, I won't even say a game winner if he kicks a field goal that puts us in the lead, like at the end of a game like where it matters.
I think that's happened that that happened in the Jets game, right? So, no, no, they take the lead in the third quarter.
Yeah, it was 1 37 left in the third quarter to me that that game was a disaster, though, and I get what I'm saying, like I don't feel like I'm so ****ed off with Sean McDermott and Brian Day ball on the game like there's no reason why the game should be 18 to 10.
Why, why? But it's but seriously like, why would the game ever be that close.
So, like for Tyler back to kick a field goal? Yeah, he did it.
But it's the Jets.
So I know if the game happens like that today, or if we play against like when we play against Pittsburgh, if it's close and he comes out and he does something that's worth it, I'm all in just like you did with Cory.
I'll buy a jersey and it'll be here.
I'll buy a real one.
Oh, and authentic.
Really a authentic 200.
I haven't revealed that yet.
Thio Humpty Hotline.
You brought it up in your podcast last week with me and Bruce Nolan.
That was last week, right? There was that this week it's starting to run together.
When was that? Last week.
Last week? Last week? S O.
Spent Bet me that Bohorquez if he turned his game around because I was I was not on the boho bandwagon.
I was basically on the boho.
Get him off the bandwagon for a long time.
I called him Shank eponymous.
E e called him shake eponymous.
And I basically said there Spence challenge to me I should say and said that if if by some chance somehow Bohorquez turned his game around, it becomes a quality punter, will you buy a jersey? And I said yes.
Well, the jersey the season is even over yet And I've already bought the jersey, so I'm waiting for it to arrive from China.
Hey, has turned it around.
So, uh, the best Bohorquez is a non having to punt bohorquez even still, but yes, even when he is kicking him.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Yeah, for sure.
Uh, Kenny G Kenny G Do play some of that saxophone for me, bro. Okay.
Not a lot to share.
More like games last year.
We've blitzed the most in the last two games that we that we have all year difference are sack percentage increased blitz.
Skylar's little ass.
I don't think it's gonna happen.
I don't I don't think that day is gonna happen.
Agree? The last two weeks, we bliss more like the US A.
Klein had the best game of his career, basically last week, but with the team that we're playing today, I just don't see the game plan being the exact same.
Now if it is and we perform like if we if we do the things the right way all day, I'm with you.
But no, I just don't see that being the game plan.
I would I would love to see us get seven sacks, five *** or whatever.
But so the Cardinals, let's talk about this for a second.
So last week, we know on we talked about it a lot on the Humpty Hotline last year.
This week, the Seattle Seahawks blitz Allen pretty much relentlessly up until he hit that screen pass.
Uh, I believe it was two Moss, right, and then hit the other one of John Brown and then it stopped.
So he caught him on it.
And then they were like, We're done with that, uh, right, the cardinal.
And the funny thing is, this Allen came out hot, and then then they started to figure it out.
They got home, they made some adjustments and started throwing the underneath stuff.
And then they got away from it.
The Cardinals blitz 35% of the time on.
I think it's the 10th or 11th most in the league.
So what do you think of that? Are they gonna be? Are they gonna similar to us? Are they gonna work Josh Allen like? Okay, we're going to, uh, you know, find find a defense of coverage that that that he struggles with, force him to stay underneath because we all know that Joshua does not like to stay underneath and we're not gonna blitz them.
So we're gonna keep him in the pocket as well.
Are they looking at a similar game plan to what we have, like, keep it short, keep it tight, don't let anything, like get over the top.
Don't like guys run free.
If they were smart, they would.
But the thing is, their game plan is different. You know that.
That's the way they play.
They like to put it.
So I think they're gonna try to stick with what they know.
Because switching up normally doesn't.
You know, like when you change who you are, it normally doesn't generate positive results.
So I think they're going to stick with what they do.
They do have baker plant.
So there's safety.
Who was question about to play? Um, he's playing this week, which is a zoo.
Um, the thing is, I don't know, Like those type of injuries, man.
Like a question.
When? When players, like are active last minute if they're really ready to go, Eh? So I'm hoping, you know, for his sake, obviously.
You know, I hate injuries, so I hope that he's ready to go.
The thing is, I hope to build test him on that.
Like so, you know, you guys gonna send blitz.
Let's let's get these one on one pass.
You know, opportunities down the field.
I would love to see what digs does against a weakened secondary.
I would love to see what John Brown does as our second.
You know, like we have the roster.
We have the wide receivers to really expose Ah, beat up secondary.
So that's what I'm looking forward to seeing.
I think today is gonna be more of what we've seen all season where Josh Allen comes out and we're, like, screaming and tweeting throughout the whole game.
Why aren't we seeing Singletary getting handoffs? And why is it moss? You know, like But listen, Josh is gonna I think the secondary is so beat up that if you don't let Josh to go off I think that's when you should start questioning Sean McDermott, because this is the game to do it.
Just like last week against Seattle, they had a week secondary, horrible defense.
You let Josh go off.
I think it's gonna be the same this week.
And I think one of the comments said earlier that they think Josh is gonna break his single season record, which was the 4 15.
Listen, I'm not predicting a 400 yard game, but if he does it, I think this is the game to do it like go out and go off.
What are the what are the implications? If the Bills come out of this game eight and two, headed into the by? What are the implications season wise? I mean, we're talking about I mean, we get the point where it's just like, yeah, it's a done deal, like whether it's the division or a Tous points the division.
Clearly, I don't think there I don't think it's gonna be, ah, situation they've clinched.
But man, the opportunity to get healthy right? It's gonna be to me.
The biggest implication is at this point, So 10 games into the season, um going and then you have a bye.
So 11 weeks in, you have the opportunity.
Let's go for this Number one seed.
So now the conversation switches from Hey, are we the number one? See? Like we're taking the A F C East.
It switches from that.
Like, Yo, we've lost two games.
Hopefully, you know, when we when we go up against Pittsburgh, we can beat them.
Um, I don't think that at least I don't see Kansas.
I know they beat us, and so I'm paying respect to that. They beat us.
I still don't see them as good as they were, though.
Like I feel like that stretch of games for us, Really? A four game stretch.
So the Titans, the Chiefs, the Jets and then the Patriots.
I feel like the Bills weren't playing their best.
So e problem was hurt.
Yeah, so I would love to see them again.
So I'm not scared of the Chiefs like I was.
I'm not scared of I'm not scared of Baltimore, you know, and I'm definitely not scared of Tennessee, you know? So So when we have these conversations and it's like, Oh, we could really try and go for that number one.
Number two seed.
Let's get a by right.
So if you get a by going into January in Buffalo, come on.
No team wants to come to Orchard Park and play us after the nobody.
So nobody conversation switches.
Man, let's do this. I am.
I just took over the show just then that No, that's what I want you to do.
And that at that point, you're talking third week in January.
So this isn't like first week.
In the first week of January, the Bills were playing the Dolphins, which nobody talked to as it pertains to like.
Two were coming to Buffalo, and that could be the game to decide the division.
Well, the Dolphins don't play well in Buffalo in January 1st of all, second of all, if we get a by, you're talking about that first game in Buffalo for the playoffs, being the third word about running and playing well in Buffalo.
If we get a bye week, I'm claiming Super Bowl like I've claimed it already because I've said that like, I feel like the Bills in Seattle.
But I'm telling you, if we get a Bible.
I'm climbing Super Bowl.
I feel like there's, like, a biker club going by right now.
This is what happens in November in Arizona, so I'm sorry.
It's so loud, I'm gonna cut you out of this.
I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna put you in time out again.
I'm gonna put you in time out.
Ladies and gentlemen, you were watching the buffalo fanatics tailgate with a special episode of the Hump Day hotline.
Uh, whatever platform, there's 100 50 people in this room.
Whatever platform you're watching it on, do me a favor.
Do us a favor and hump that, like, jump on that, like, button on.
Let the world you want.
Just I'm a lot of new.
So this is what So J.
Spence and I have coordinated just for the viewers and bills Mafia at large.
Ah, special mega pod for this week's edition of Hotline, which is November 19th, which is 18th, which is this Wednesday.
And I am so incredibly crazy.
Sky high hopeful that the bills come out of this game with the win because I literally wanna break down just the playoff picture and the rest of the season with the lineup that we have for you this Wednesday.
This is what's coming up.
Bills Mafia on the Humpty Hotline Wednesday Live at nine o'clock right here.
Same channel that's around right now is the Humpty Hotline Mega pod with myself, J.
Spence the one and only Bruce Exclusive, Bruce Nolan and Joe Marino from Locked on Bills.
This is an episode that you are not gonna walnut.
I mean, this is like the Super Bowl of like of, like, YouTube podcasts right here.
Like this is going to be an incredible show.
And here's the thing.
Bruce Nolan is not going to reveal his identity.
Hey, is still going to be incognito, But do whatever you gotta do to set some sort of calendar on your phone or sort of reminder in your phone.
Put something in your calendar, whatever you gotta do.
You wanna be a part of that? That that that podcast.
So let's do this.
We've only got um Oh, so I'll let you answer this one.
Hate to be downer, but what do you think we do if we lose e even answer? We're still first in the division agreed.
Um, at this point of the season, you know, I think a lot of people thought Seattle would beat us.
Eso if we go into the by being seven and three, I don't think it's a negative.
Like I don't think you go into a depressed at all.
I think it's amazing you're still, you know, it's one of those games were like, Okay, if we lose it a man, I hate losing, but we lost If we win.
Hell, yeah, we're in too.
So, you know, I just don't I don't see a bad on anyway, but great question.
Lone wolf says that the FBI knows who Bruce Bruce Nolan is.
We discovered on the podcast that bruises, bruises the FBI.
I don't know what's going on, but somebody keeps throwing some, like, weird links up in here.
And I'm just gonna block him.
So you are blocked block user.
It's coming up in, like Japanese or Chinese or something.
So I don't That's the FBI trying to do that away.
Those those of you that are getting spammed.
I'm trying to do the best that I can.
What? We've got about eight minutes left nine minutes left in the show.
Let's open it up to questions.
So whatever questions bills Mafia has out there, whether it's this game, whether it's the rest of the season, you know, I'm a big proponent or a fan of the thought that we only have two real difficult games left this year, which is this one and then the Steelers game.
I think the rest of those get the rest of games we have are all winnable games.
Yeah, in the in the off season, we kept saying the second half of the schedule was gonna kill us off.
Well, that Niners that night Kittel and Freaking Garoppolo being on IR changes that that changes it so much.
But it's still not a game that you want to go into just thinking like, Okay, we're going to go in and take that.
So we still got to be careful, Justin says, should let us know we would have raised 400 hours for you to go to the game.
How often the Bills go to Arizona, everyone once every six years, since every well, they play the West every four years.
Who knows how long how often they go there.
But if you guys just wanna give me $400 I have better things to spend it on than going like I can watch it with friends and and be completely happy, to be honest with you.
And that's the honest truth.
I would much rather be in Buffalo right now, watching it with some of you than to be here.
Honestly, it's It's funny because he just through the through, Scott Van Loon there, Scott Van Loon, I would've covered it. That's awesome.
So that's great.
So let's do this Alan stat line for the day.
We I don't remember what my numbers were on Wednesday.
Do you remember what your numbers were on Wednesday? I think I gave you.
It was like 3 80 with three touchdowns in the air.
Which three touchdowns in the air and one on the ground.
I think I said three on in the air, one on the ground and I think I was more on the 3. 25 range.
Was not wasn't a lower in the low three.
Yeah, you were lower.
Uh, what do I think What do you think our final record would be? Shady.
I'm still going 12 and four, three and 13 is not.
If they get out of the question, they get back.
Yeah, if they get out to pass this game today and say hi, pit that.
I don't want to give us a L.
But if we end up losing to the Steelers and then kind of running the board that that's very possible.
But I can also see us losing by some weird thing today and losing that game as well.
The reality is, if the Bills win this football game today, they are there in the hunt and pushing for a first round bye for Josh.
Adam is firmly in the M V P conversation.
It's just not if he lights them up today.
Yes, absolutely firmly.
It's not because, like I know, depending on what like what channel or whoever you're watching is like Well, maybe, you know if he wins today and he he doesn't throw interception like if he's 3 50 for three touchdowns firmly in the M V P conversation, J bowling asked.
How did the Dolphins rebuilding a year like ****, they didn't do it in the year and where the Bills did it.
Yeah, they didn't do it in the year they did it right.
They did it fast.
And it's just now showing it's basically showing dividends.
Finally, at this point, this one away, if you wanna look at it, you could say they did in the year because he's on the coach has only been there for years.
You know, this is a second year, you know.
But it's like, Yeah, so I mean, if you look at it that way, has it only been a year? But he, um it's the same way you.
If it starts off with leadership, man, you get a good leader and then you let him put the right people in place.
And Bryan Flores, If we didn't have Sean McDermott in western New York, he would be my number one pick.
Like for new coach to bring in.
There's a couple other guys, like obviously, three offensive coordinator Eric out in Kansas City.
Um, there's a couple guys that are like Dude, but no Bryan Flores.
Chris says his surprise for the defense.
Outside linebackers contain Murray better than any team has this year and is the keystone to the Bills victory.
I like it, John M. Says.
Is Beasley significant factor today? I think he could be.
I think this could be a 12 target.
Beasley Day e Think we have two wide receivers over 100 yards, and I think he's one of them.
Yeah, he absolutely could be.
Ah, 12 Target Have 12 targets gonna have, like he's gonna have, like, 100 catches for 120.
Something like He's gonna be one of those games.
One Eric says, Great show boys.
Bills win 33 24.
Who do you think Who do you both think is the long shot playmaker on offense and defense? We kind of talked about surprises already.
Yeah, Moss and Trey.
I said, on offense that I say on offense, I don't think I did.
I don't remember.
I don't think I could Yeah, I don't think I committed off.
I think I just committed anything on offense.
Surprised it might be Beasley on defense.
I said Dane Jackson, and you told me to say it again.
Yeah, I was happy with that.
if I say it again real quick.
Dane Jackson had E go see this boy.
Just dude, he just plays different.
He just plays different than every other defensive back we have, and I want to see more of it. So imagine Trey.
And a guy that has that similar mindset. Thio.
Who's to do that? One to the Rams? Uh, Ramsey? Yeah.
That has that Jalen Ramsey dog mentality, like on the other side of trade.
And we wouldn't have to draft a cornerback next year.
Well, that was my thing is like, and that was the statement I was gonna make.
I want to see him starting opposite trade next year.
Yeah, I want to see what's up, Linda, if Dane is not the guy, they're gonna draft somebody.
I mean, my guess is they're gonna draft him in the first two rounds.
They're gonna drop the corners to do.
They just need to give him that chance to show it.
I think he's that dude.
Yeah. Yeah, for sure.
E could be, You know, I'm a fan, so I could just be wrong, but dang this man do it. Yep, Yep.
Matt CAPPs says great starts are the key.
You gotta get up early.
I don't know that we need a heavy run game.
I think I don't know.
This team's identity is 70% passing.
Yeah, we're passing team.
I put this in my show notes for yesterday for the pot that came out today.
And I never ended up saying it.
The fact that that that the bills abandoned run like they dio on and and the reality that, like Day Able is okay with it.
And so is McDermott tells you the trust that they have not only in Allen, but these wide receivers that Allen's gonna make the throws and that the wide receivers gonna catch him like we are a passing team.
This is a high flying past, like air Raid Allen type of a team.
Which is I do want to say this to you real quick too.
I enjoy your Sunday morning pregame shows, man like it's like a quick little No, seriously, I know I'm your friend.
So, like, sometimes I just hype you up because you're my no, like it's a good it's a good. Early morning.
Grab your coffee.
You know, get ready for the game type of show.
Man is it is a really good show.
My goal every time is to be under 15 minutes and they end up 20 every time.
Like it's like 20 is a good they're still good.
Like this week is gonna be 15.
And every week it's, like 20 23 22 every time.
I just basically I just want that quick quick cup of coffee like, Hey, Alexa, play the overreaction.
Um, there's something quick.
And then, like, while you're making your coffee on Sunday morning, you know, whatever. No, it's good.
Honestly, I like it a lot, man.
That's what a pregame show should be on Sundays.
Like you don't wanna take our and a half from somebody Sunday, right? Right, Right.
I'm just gonna say Richard rush any day.
That's gotta hump Day is a good day.
Oh, you know, and I read that I'm a little tip.
I read that wrong.
I was gonna say any day you can hump is a good day.
But you said hug day on your right now I'm sorry, I was saying that so but that's just me.
So that Zagat dirty anyways.

Man scape, Brian Hopes.
Where do you Go? Bryan's and Disney World? Brian, what do you do in the world Road? It's like, you know, the Bills are about to be on foot on TV like, Yo, I'm jealous, e.
I don't know what else to say.
Like I'm jealous. What are you doing? That's so funny.
Yeah, I think he's talking about Dane Jackson.
It's true, We're all about it.
So, uh, this will be the last one.
We're gonna cut you guys loose, Steve.
It says I think they will still draft a cornerback.
Even if Dane is the guy.
If Dane shows up, it won't be a first rounder.
But I would still expect a cornerback drafted early in the third round. Thoughts.
I could see that I mean, because they should, you know.
But the thing is, I'm really hoping that Dane is a guy that that weaken establish on his roster for a long time.
I wanted I wanted digs this season step, brother, but it didn't quite work out that way.
He went to Dallas, and now he's injured.
Unfortunately, but But no.
Yeah, I could see its drafting a cornerback next year. Maybe third or fourth round.
Yeah, Brian, you're officially banned from the show, sitting by the pool, You and you and man, I need to be by the pool right now.
You see this? I need to be like I'm sweating, man.
