Thank you on your three kids.
You know, I go to church one game day rolls around a little different.
I'm not very big, really.
You know, when I play a game with a bunch of guys for, like, 65662 to 60 to 70 if you're scared to be out there with the big guys in your in the wrong business, because it's a blast out there amongst them on to be out in the middle of all those big guys and really to go out there on beat their ass is whether it was all about if you go down there and hit somebody hard.
That's really what it's like a you know, for me, e CEO.
Sometimes you hit a guy with Mammoth hit.
You don't feel a thing, man.
It's just like it's the best.
You feel like you go through the wall on, not even feel it, man, you feel invincible when you get a really good link on a guy.
I mean, you gotta give it way.
Getting every every every little extra little bit you could muster up from everything you wish you could just hold that forever, Forever, forever e o e What is going on? Everybody Welcome.
Welcome into the Hump Day hotline on the Buffalo Fanatics Multicast Network I am the host of the Hump Day hotline.
You can find me on Twitter at Joe Miller Wired.
I'm also the host, if you will, the voice of the overreaction Bills podcast that you can find also on the Buffalo Fanatics Podcast Network.
And I'm gonna be flying solo tonight.
Uh, this Thanksgiving Eve evening it's just me.
So if you tuned in for for J.
Spence, I apologize.
I got nothing for you that I already see it coming up.
Spence? Well, first things first.
Let's talk about that opener.
I wanted to do a special show opener for the Humpty Hotline tonight on and based around the fact the news that once again Steve Tasker is a professional football Hall of Fame.
Now that doesn't mean a whole lot of things other than the fact that he's getting consideration, right? So which is big that he's getting consideration? But there's an aspect to once you get consideration and you get it a couple times at some point in time, it's crapper.
Get off the pot.
And that time is now for Steve Tasker.
You're talking about a guy that, you know, I saw in the comments while that while that while that was that, that promo was running, you know, back when you could still hit people in the NFL, there was just Steve Tasker played different.
He just played different than NFL players play today.
Not only did he played different, he just was different.
His makeup was different.
Uh, the way that he was built as a football player was different.
His mindset was different.
He every single play, whether it was special teams on kickoff, special teams on a kick returner and punt return.
Um, offensive play.
His mindset was such that this was the last play he was ever going to get to play, and he went out there and he played like that.
You're talking about a guy and I know that Ah, lot of you remember Steve and I know there's a lot of people in the chat right now who don't remember Steve that maybe weren't old enough to remember watching Tasker play.
He was the highlight of almost every Bills game.
There was a reason that there were so many highlights in that promo piece that I played for you, uh, that I put together, I actually tweeted yesterday.
I tweeted out a now our long clip of pretty much every highlight that Steve Tasker had keep in mind.
The ones that I showed you tonight did not include his highlights as a wide receiver is a Buffalo bill of which he had many.
He scored many touchdowns.
You're talking about a guy that could do it all.
He could play special teams.
He could play offense. Wide receiver.
The problem was, is he didn't get many opportunities because his role was a little bit backwards.
You know, you're talking about a time when even today, you know when you've got a great player.
If you've got Josh Allen on your team, which we do or let's Stefon Diggs, let's take Stefon Diggs.
You know, the last thing that this coaching staff is going to do is put Stefon Diggs on special teams because a you don't want him to get hurt.
But you also don't want him to get tired, you know, doing 100 yard sprints every 10 minutes.
Well, they did that with Steve Tasker.
The difference was, is they didn't wanna wear him out on offense because they were afraid that it would lessen his contribution to special teams.
He played the reverse role of basically any other player there is.
He was the guy that basically set the standards set.
The banner set the mark for so many, like special teams players that have come since him, whether it's Devin Hester or some of these other guys that have come since then on, you're talking about a guy that somebody needs to pick up the torch.
I know Kyle Brandt today and Good Morning Football was talking about Tasker.
Somebody has got to go into the writers room.
Somebody's got to go into the people that make the votes, and they've got to make a strong, solid case for this guy because if there's a man there was the best ever in his position at a position group special teams.
It was Steve Tasker, and the man belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Regardless of what do you think what you think about Steve now about him being on the radio about one.
Bills live about any of that stuff.
How he is is a journalist.
None of that stuff is what we're talking about.
We're talking about Steve Tasker, the football player, and the man deserves to be in the Football Hall of Fame, the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
And it's time on.
That's my soap box, that I have a Sfar.
As Steve Tasker goes, he's got to get in there.
We need him to be a finalist.
We need him to get in.
Uh, the time is now it's time.
But I just want to say again, Welcome.
That's little soapbox for Steve Tasker.
Steve, I don't know you.
You don't know me, but I love you, buddy.
I'm Bills Mafia.
I love, and I think everybody else does, too.
Eso we're wishing the best for you.
Welcome into the Humpty Hotline. Do me a favor.

If anyone wants to talk Steve Tasker, we can We're gonna talk about this Chargers game.
We're gonna talk about the state of the Buffalo Bills, and I've got a couple other things on the docket for you.
I tried to get a special guest tonight, which was Clay TROIA, who hosts the counterpoint with the Counterpoint Bills podcast.
If you have not tuned into Clay's show yet, you need to Hey, does a very good job.
The whole concept of his show is every week on Wednesdays he interviews whether it's a media person or a fan, a super fan, somebody from the opposing team that were about to play on the insight that they bring on basically somebody who is unknown to us is incredible.
I would encourage all of you to listen to that podcast podcast.

And then, uh, the one thing we need to talk about is I'm listening to stuff going on in my house.
The one thing that we need to talk about is the sponsor, the show sponsor.

He j Spence and I are are besties the man the man crush that we have on each other is not over what over spoken overdone.

So you should be listening to his podcast anyway, because the work he's doing is incredible.
Hey, is I'm not only see my friend, I'm a big fan.
So yeah, so that's enough about that.
Talked about likes, talked about super chats.
I welcome to all in the Humpty Hotline.
Let's get started with this show.
So with that, we got a big game coming up this week.
We're coming off a bye week on.
The very cool thing about by weeks is the opportunity and the potential and the ability to get healthy.
I mean, and I think that that's what's probably the most important thing for this team is to get healthy.
Now I'm going to show you the injury port here soon as it pertains to what happened today in practice.
Who practiced who didn't who was limited, blah, blah, blah, Uh, first things first.
Matt Milano was not on that because Matt Milano is, uh, currently on injured reserve, so he's not eligible, eligible to come back even until next week, but will break some of that stuff down in the second.
Got on the super chat.
Rico, the boss is in the house.
You got this fan show will go on.
Much respect to you.
Let's get this fire show going.
It's about as hot as my ginger face.
So I don't know if it could get much hotter than that.
But it is this beard.
They've shut down all the barbers in town.
I got cut last week.
I'm not gonna be able to get cut for a while, so I don't know what's gonna happen because my barber doesn't a beard.
My barber does my hair.
He gives me that sweet, slow fade.
Uh, yeah, it's just one of those things.
So but, uh, you made me lose my train of thought, Rico.
Um Oh, Injuries.
We were talking about the Buffalo Bills by weeks and injuries.
So when I show you the injury report, just keep in mind.
Let's just set a ground rule right off the top.
Matt Milano cannot return this week.
He's not on the injury report, so that doesn't mean that he's healthy.
He is literally not available to the Buffalo Bills this week.
Um, but with that.
I'm gonna run right over there right now, and I'm gonna show you coming into this week what we've got going on as far as injuries.
Mario Addison had a rest day today.
They've got his knee on there, but they gave a veteran rest day today.
More than likely at this point, you're talking Week 12 of the NFL season.
These guys are all nicked.
They're all hurt.
They're all banged up just a little bit.
Eso If Mario Addison had somewhat of a little bit of a knee limp or give, it wouldn't surprise me, but he did not participate.
Just due to a veteran rest day.
John Brown is the big one, right? So John Brown did not participate with that ankle.
Um, I would say this.
This is not a surprise.
In the sense of something that we have not seen over the last several weeks.
John Brown has been very limited and practices and has not practiced for I don't know when.
The last time John Brown actually practiced full go without a red contact jersey, this makes me concerned.
But it doesn't make me concerned.
It makes me concerned simply due to the fact that John Brown is a very, very important part of this football team.
They play different when he's not in the lineup, and he tweaked his ankle along with that need and he's got the ankle up here.
He tweaked his ankle and his knee in the game against the Cardinals, so we don't really have a gauge on where John Brown is that yet.
And unfortunately, the injury reports are not going to give us a real good feel for where he's at just because he's been on the injury report pretty consistently, Uh, A J has been, uh, it was a full participant and then putting forward limited Jake from limited Jerry Hughes back Limited.
And then everybody else was pretty much back, as you can see.
So, uh, that is the injury report for the Buffalo Bills on Mr Super Chat.
I think I just missed one.
So, Andrew Miller, uh, my brother from another mother, thanks to Super Chat, what do expect from Darren Lee this week? Actual playing over client or spot snaps? So they protected him.
If I if I'm not mistaking, the protection list came out for practice squad players.
So right now, I believe he's still on the practice squad.
Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that as of right now, he's a protected player on the practice squad.
Eso I don't know that he is actually going to get in the game, which, you know, we'll see what happens with the way that A. J.
Klein has been playing lately.
You know there's a there's a good chance that they may, they may not need him.
So for me, the bigger concern, the bigger question is always going to be that defensive backfield.
Which Josh Norman, if you noticed, is not on that list.
Josh Norman was activated off IR, and he has cleared Cove it, so he should be available.
And obviously, we all want to see danger Jackson.
And as far as I could tell when I look at that danger, Jackson was not on this list and danger.
Jackson obviously got tweaked in that Cardinals game just a little bit, but he is not on this list, which is a pretty solid sign that we're gonna get some more danger.
Axon, which I think is something that we all pretty much want to see uh, I go to J Nico in West Seneca.
So J Nico, uh, he's right on.
I can think of the name of the road.
It's right off a ridge.
I can think of the name of the name of the road that he's on but I've been going I go, I go home every two weeks.
Just him one man shop, one chair, Super good dude like like Here's the thing, fellas, is we're talking about like, man scape getting a fade.
A drop fade is an art form like barbers are artists.
And if you're not going to a good barber, you need to find a good barber because when you're dropped, fate is bad.
You could tell and everybody could tell the barber that I went to in Columbus, Ohio, Blake When Blake would cut somebody I knew so literally, literally.
I could see somebody and see their haircut.
I'd be like Blake cut you, didn't he? And they'd be like, Yeah, How do you know that? Because I could tell by the way like the style that he has, Niko is the same way.
So I go to Nico.
If anybody has does not have a barber and you need a barber, find a good barber.
Let me know when barbershops open back up.
I can get you Nico's information Eyes text messages were probably like flood up.
If that happens, it will be mad at me.
But sometimes you watches the show.
So, Nico, if you're watching Welcome.
Uh, but this is what I want to talk about real quick is I take a drink for my for my McKay w Cup.
We went 7 11 a couple years back in McCann and my daughter had to have this cup, so she got a big gulp with this.
Just have this cup Eso Yeah, um I named or titled the show.
Destiny is all Destiny is all for the title of the show this week.
And the reason that I did that is it's a takeoff from I don't know if anybody in here is Watch the last kingdom with With With a Trade And it's basically about the Saxons and the Vikings And how England became became a nation, if you will, on just the uniting of all those kingdoms.
But but who trade in that show like he always starts to show with with saying Destiny is all.
And the way that they believed is that there was just a destiny piece to everything that they did everything that they did, and so many times as Bills fans and as a za football team is a franchise.
This team has literally we've called it been, in quote unquote control of its own destiny that exists and is true right now.
Coming off of this past weekend, we saw something that, frankly, we hadn't seen or I haven't seen in a very long time.
The Bills were essentially a half a game ahead in first place of the Miami Dolphins because they had that ketchup game, right? And then what? And then you've got the Patriots, who were also kind of climbing back into this thing much the way the Bill Belichick you know, you can never count necessarily Bill Belichick out until they're out.
And what ended up happening is every single team in the A F C East lost.
So the Bills not playing last weekend, the Bills actually came out of it. Winners.
So Monday was very much a victory Monday for us as Bills fans just due to the fact that everybody else in the A f c East lost the big one being the Dolphins, the big one also being that to have got benched.
So I love, love the turmoil there.
So I'm not saying that too is gonna be bad.
I'm not saying that Brian Floors is a bad coach.
I actually somewhat agreed with that.
That game was in reach to it was an effective, you know, you're you're in line or running for a tie, if you will at first place, get the guy in there with a spark, and Fitzy sometimes can provide that spark back to destiny is all.
We're living in a time in a space with this football team where they need to be in control, right of their own destiny.
And we hear that crap.
We've heard it for years.
We've heard it, like in the hunt in the hunt.
You know, the times when we weren't bad, you know, it was we were in the hunt and this and that and the other thing And the reality was the bills were never able.
They were never, never able to claim their own destiny.
They did a little bit of it last year, so there's a little bit of experience when you talk about just this whole destiny, peace and being in control of it.
They went into Pittsburgh last year.
Yes, it was against Duck, You know, who basically probably doesn't belong in the NFL.
And that Pittsburgh team looks completely different with Ben.
Big Ben at the helm, which it should, regardless, that team needed needed a win.
We've seen Destiny before.
We saw the Steelers game when the Bills were nine and seven or nine and six.
All they had to do was beat the Steelers backups when Mike Mullarkey was the head coach and they couldn't do it.
And basically they lost that football game right? And they couldn't.
They couldn't keep in control of their own destiny.
Last year, the Bills went, and we've seen that before.
Last year, the Bills went to Pittsburgh and they won that game.
They clinched a playoff spot in primetime football on Sunday Night football, right, and that's what we're talking about.
You're talking about a situation with this football team right now that they have never been in or well, I'm gonna say not.
They have not been in since the early nineties and maybe have never been in.
Not only not only are they 1.
5 games up, they've got a record of seven and three, right? They're 1.
5 games up on everybody else and the stretch.
The homestretch is coming and everybody's chasing them.
The Dolphins were chasing them.
The Dolphins are improving.
That air like coming up, and the Patriots are still there in the shadow.
Do I think the Patriots gonna become something? No, but the Patriots are still there in the shadow.
And believe me, a first round playoff home game is going to suit this team. The goal.
If you remember the object of this season, this season's goal was to win a playoff game.
That was our goal.
As much as we've seen this team like take tremendous strides and do crazy things, the goal of this season of 2020 was the win a playoff game.
That goal can easily, much more easily be accomplished if you're playing that first playoff game at home, so make no mistake winning the A F.
C East is the goal to get that first playoff game, and that's where the Destiny piece comes in.
That's where the pressure comes in, because not only do you have the guys chasing you there behind you in your division to, uh, the Miami Dolphins, but you've also got a situation where you're going to be on primetime football four weeks the last four weeks.
Or, I think, four of the last five weeks of the NFL season in December.
You're gonna be on primetime football.
You wanna talk about pressure? You wanna talk about the stage? You wanna talk about the lights you wanna talk about like everybody's eyes on you every single minute of the game that you're playing.
This is what's coming.
This is what's coming for the Buffalo Bills.
Destiny is all this team is going thio Stefon Diggs today said, and I'm paraphrasing.
I don't care about individual numbers.
I don't care about my stats, and we've heard him say that before, but the difference was, is this time, he said, I don't care about any of that stuff because we, as a team, are searching for something bigger, something greater, and that's all that matters to him.
This team is gonna have to have a different mindset than they've ever had, probably since 1990 91 92 93.
They're going to have to go into games differently than they have in the past because they've got to be in control more than they ever have of their own destiny.
Which means a lot of the stuff that they told us they were working on in this bye week, which is like the third quarter stuff there.
What? It's either minus 47 or minus 57 point differential in the third quarter of the games this season.
There's a problem.
This team has a problem in there in the third quarter.
I don't care what anybody tells you.
I don't care what anybody says about coaching.
I don't care what anybody says about play calling.
I don't care what anybody says about execution.
This team has a problem in the third quarter.
I don't know what it is.
Nobody clearly can define exactly what it is, but this team has a problem.
In the third quarter and a minus.
It's either 47 or 57 point differential tells you that Josh was asked about that.
And he said the method to their wins this year has been, Ah, very strong.
1st, 1st quarter, second quarter, that lull, that dip in the third.
And then they kind of pour it on in the fourth quarter.
And he said he sees guys step up and play faster, play harder in the fourth quarter.
Well, guess what? Maybe they need to move that fourth quarter vibe to the third quarter and begin to play that way.
I don't have the answers, but we're gonna get to some of that stuff.
Eso were about 25 minutes into this thing.
Welcome again in the Humpty Hotline.
I'm your host, Joe Miller.
You can find me on Twitter at Joe Miller Wired.
It's not on the screen. I took it off.
Um, most of you know who I am and they know how to find me.
If you want to get a comment in tonight, it's gonna be difficult just because I have to do this whole entire thing and I'm not Rico.
Rico is the man. Rico's awesome.
At this super chat, me if you want to get my attention super chat.
I can see you guys blowing up the comments section already and you have been for the last 25 minutes.
Let me tell you something, Bills.
Mafia is like no other group.
You guys were just awesome.
And I'm proud to be a part of Bill's Mafia and a part of you guys.
And the best part about bills Mafia tonight is with the Dolphins losing on Sunday.
They're not gonna be in the chat section tonight.
So we've lost all of our dolphin fans that were calling us delusional.
Like where all of our fish friends like they're not.
They're not here tonight, But I do want to get Thio some of you guys this stuff.
So, Zach appreciate you being part of the show tonight, Zack.
It's very simple.
We destroyed in the first half of every single game.
They make adjustments against the bills and we don't make adjustments because we're winning.
I'm gonna be honest with you.
I have the feeling and I've run this by guys like Bruce and Anthony.
Uh, Joe Marino and I just said it feels to me like the bills have adjustments like they've gone in and They've made some adjustments, but they're holding them and there's a there's a measure of like, let's see what the other team is going to do first.
And then we'll kind of make.
And by then the other team has put like a like a touchdown or two on us.
And the offense is that, you know, had a couple of three and outs are a couple of, like, broken down, uh, drives.
Um, Jose says I would.
Joe, I really wish I could have been.
I wish I could support you and the other guys so much.
Oh, Jose man, that's not bro.
That's not me begging.
Yeah, So if you Yeah, please do not ever feel obligated Uh, Thio Super Chat.
So please don't and that goes for anybody.
So, what were they go? Bruce Nolan's up in the house.
What's up, Bruce? Welcome to show.
I guess the Dolphins optimism has been all to do, fished out, and that's the way the cookie crumbles.
I did it again, Bruce.
E was on Jay Spencer's show with Bruce, and I kept saying that.
So I kept taking this tagline from He's like, Why do you get? Why do you get to say that? And I don't, Uh, because my microphone was working that night, I don't know.
So it's good to see the fish fans no longer up in the house.
So But we got a big game against us coming up this weekend.
What do you guys? His thoughts give me a confidence level in the chat section right now.
Bills, mafia, give me a chat, a confidence level before I move on to the next thing.
We start really kind of talking about this Chargers game and breaking down a little bit confidence level on the bills.
Like I said, kind of controlling their own destiny Before we get to that new member the W I'm gonna take that is the wind.
Uh, Thio BF family.
You are now a member.
If I had a bell, I would wring it.
But it's, ah, being bigoted bangers.
Rico likes to say, but welcome.
W appreciate the support.
Appreciate the love.
Ah, you people like Bruce elbow reveal, and then Bruce is like, I don't know what's going on, but Bruce is getting chippy up in here tonight.
Eso That's hilarious.
So I am to Daniel says he's glad to be part of this fan base. It is.
By and large, it's funny, the best fan base in the world. I'm all over the place already.
I'm gonna get back to my script here in a minute.
Uh, it came out.
I don't remember who it waas.
Um, it was one of the national guys who basically said something about It's really cool to see, like like sports fans or like fan bases, like doing good things.
And if I had known that, like fan Bases did these sort of things, I would have paid more attention before.
And I was like, Really? Because the Bills have done this three times.
Bills Mafia has done this three times.
It's been basically four major times that has happened, and it's been the Bills Mafia three of those times.
One was obviously Andy Dalton.
Uh, the other one was the Titans Foundation thing when the Titans last year did the whole who's the greatest fan base.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah on the bottle, the bots and then Shelby Waddle actually got everybody together to donate to a Titans charity down there or the Titans, uh, organization down there in Tennessee and I forget how much we raised there.
But there was a bunch their bills Mafia did.
And then obviously the one for Josh's grandma as well.
But yeah, fantastic.
So we were talking about confidence levels.
So Bruce Nolan says Communist level 7.
687 to 4 I would not expect an answer any other like that's the only answer that I would expect.
There's a down in the comments section.
If you scroll down a little bit, there's Ah, place down there to become a member of fanatics on.
I think it even talks about it.
So Bills Guys says 9.
5 out of 10 I like it were one play away from 83.
It's true, it's true.
And I think the scary thing for me with a comment like that is knowing that the Chargers are probably one play away in every game from being seven and three is well or eight and three.
Are we seven? For now, I forgot my own team's record were seven and three, right? Yeah, 10 games in were seven and three.
So it's, uh yeah, that's eight and two.
I think it was 18 to, but where we had so being be Army once is being being F and being welcome to the club Full show.
Uh, this might be it for those who either Looking at Jose, I believe it's join the fanatics dot com.
Maybe. I don't know.
I couldn't tell you.
Um, Eric says, that's thin.
Why isn't Morris Morris the stable center for all? And we're gonna talk about this in a minute.
Dawkins, Feliciana, Morse, Ford and Williams like the first four games.
One healthy, of course.
McDermott mind games with the fan base Question Mark, Hold that thought.
Eric, we're gonna talk about it here in a minute.
We're going to talk about it here in a minute.
Um, got his act that it was a typo.
You threw me off a little bit, so it's easy to distract me.
I'm kind of a d d.
So don't nothing shiny and no weird stats remember, like squirrel, So yeah. Yeah.
So when we talk about this Chargers game, there's a lot about this Chargers game that that how do I want to say It concerns me, intrigues me and excites me, right? There's a lot about this Chargers game.
That man could go either way.
You know, you're talking about the situation with the old line that Eric was.
Just bring it up.
You know, we need to get clarification and the clarification.
I think, uh, that actually came out from an article from Matt Perino and I think where that helped me out a lot, and I'm gonna try to give it to you guys.
This isn't a situation.
And I landed where all of you guys did, too.
When I was hearing the comments when I was hearing the way the coach speak was when I was listening to McDermott in the pressers, it sounded to me like Feliciano is going to stay at center because we somehow want to keep Brian Winters on the field like we want to keep that continuity in place.
And I don't think that's what it is, I think.
And this came from Matt Perino's article.
I think what it is and what the truth is, is they found a little bit of a spark with Feliciano its center.
There was a little bit of an attitude.
There was a little bit of a grind.
There's a little bit of nasty that came that showed up when Feliciano played center and the offensive line played different.
So I think, first of all, when when when McDermott talks about Morse being on the bench and playing Feliciano over him.
It's not a situation that we wanna keep Brian winners in the game and some of these other train wreck guards that we have, because let's be honest.
The the Guard play for this football team, well do***ented, has not been good this entire season.
Uh, it's not about that.
It's about the nasty that this team gets that offensive line gets when Feliciano's in the game vs, when Morse's and for me there is an aspect of I think you can get that same nasty.
I think you could get that same anger.
I think you could get that same game play with Feliciano at guard.
It would surprise me terribly.
Surprised me terribly to see Morse not at center and Feliciano not a guard right guard left guard.
I'm not sure which I know.
Ford has played right guard a little bit this year.
I think he's played left guard a little bit this year.
I think the natural position for Feliciano is right guard.
I don't really care.
I want to see Williams Ford at one of the two spots.
Mitch Morse in the middle, Feliciano, one of the two spots, and Dion Dawkins.
I think that that is a winning solution.
I think when when coach talks about continuity, that is the continuity that you wanna bring.
That's the continuity that you wanna find.
Um, I think that Feliciano, being just being in the lineup, is gonna bring a measure of that nasty that what I call identity.
So this offensive line lacks a serious identity.
They don't know who they are and and and the reality is there's also in my opinion and there's people in the check that they can refute this if you don't agree.
In my opinion, there's also a great deal of this coaching staff trying to fit a scheme to players and it gets back to that whole football politics thing.
You know, we had Clinton Spain.
We had Feliciano, we had bench Morris and there were certain blocking schemes.
Uh, that basically we could run and couldn't run.
And this team wants to run more of an athletic movement zone scheme with different players and, unfortunately, Morrises probably not the center that they want for the schemes that they want to run.
Unfortunately, Morse is the guy they have the guy that they paid $54 million for.
For I think it's three or four years.
So to me, you line up the best five you have and you just punch the guy in the face across the line of scrimmage.
Why get cute, like what you're trying to do? Isn't working.
Dial it down, back it down a notch.
Um, but for all intents and purposes, E.
I would be surprised, terribly surprised if we did not see Dawkins, forward Morse, Feliciano and Williams flip flop forward in Feliciano, one of the two back and forth.
But as far as these two teams go, it's scary.
Scary how similar they are.
So you're talking about a Chargers team.
That is what, seven and three, right? I think there's 73 Your I'm sorry three and seven, Um, and a bill seemed at seven and three or something around there as far as the Chargers go, this is the stuff that I'm talking about that's somewhat scary.
These are the league rankings, and this is Bobby's work.
So this is Bobby Banks.
So Bobby Banks is one of the founders, one of the owners of fanatics.
Excuse me while I take a drink and wept my mouth a little bit.
Bobby does all the graphics work for fanatics, and Bobby is super talented.
However, when I was reading this, my eyes popped out of my head just a little bit.
These are the league rankings for these two football teams that are playing this weekend.
Keep in mind, one of these teams has a 73 record.
One of these teams has a 37 record.
And if I told you that the team on the left was the woman the losing record, you'd probably look at the rankings of the team on the right and be like, Well, that can't be possible.
But this is legit.
What we're looking at this weekend now, there's been a lot of conversation, uh, pertaining Thio to the Chargers and the way that they've been playing and then being one play away or making, you know, just basically having lulls in certain times specifically on special teams.
It's important to note that that that Coach Lynn this week actually moved his special teams coaches, special teams coordinator to the offense and promoted his assistant special teams guy.
So he is in the process of making changes on special teams.
So I don't know what we're going to see from there.
When I listen to Clay's podcast today and the guy's from one of the podcast from from the From the Chargers, they made it sound like if they can clean up whatever the problems are that they're having on special teams and not make that one critical error during the game, that they can beat anybody.
And I'm gonna be honest with you looking at number and I know stats.
It's not all about stats, but this Herbert kid can throw the football.
I'm gonna show you another graphic here in a second, this river kicking through the football.
It just is what it is.
This is a team that the bill's better take serious, their third on offense ranked, uh, in the league.
The Bills of 13th, 11th on defense the Bills in 19th passing.
Fourth versus the Bills at fifth rushing, 10th versus the Bills, the 27th.
Like I said, that can scare you or can hurt you.
This is our Q B.
So this is Herbert versus Alan.
Take a look at that for a second you're talking about.
This is how close these guys are.
And Herbert is a freaking rookie, like I don't I've got Where is that? I got Herberts numbers here, and I'm keeping that graphic up.
I apologize on you.
Uh, Herbert has thrown for 300 yards in.
I don't have Why does this not have all see all? Sorry as I'm navigating through Herbert has thrown for 300 yards in 12345 of his games this season.
That's been freaking sane.
These two quarterbacks are very similar and they're very much kind of on pace for the scent for similar numbers.
Clearly, Allen is better in a couple areas.
Herbert is better than a couple in a couple of other areas.
But this is going to be when you talk about games.
When you talk about football games, this game is going to be.
It's gonna be tight, Guys.
This team is going to be tight.
This defense, the Chargers defense is nothing to necessarily, uh, shake a stick at.
They got Joey Bosa on this defensive line.
They've got great fast linebackers.
Obviously this offense, you know, rolls it was it came out today that Austin echl er actually retweeted it on Twitter.
Austin, eh? Klar said that he was gonna play.
He put it out on Twitter as well that he's no on his Twitter account that he's actually gonna play this weekend.
Uh, yeah, I didn't see this one.
If a healthy and available more doesn't starting center against the Chargers comma, Bruce says I will cry.
So that was kind of going through it.
Just It was just dipping back, looking to see if I missed any super chats.
And it doesn't seem that I did.
If I did miss anything, please make sure you guys yell at me as loud as you possibly can.
But what I want to know from you guys is when you're talking about this Chargers game, what scares you the most? What is a Buffalo Bills fan? What scares you the most from this Chargers football team.
Uh, this is gonna be big stock around 23 says Defense needs to force a couple turnovers.
That is absolutely true.
We need to force not only the players in the mistakes, but Herbert and Herbert has been pretty sound with the football he hasn't made.
He's actually throwing one less interception, then Allen and yes, I know two or three gallons interceptions weren't actually his fault.
Brian Bowers. Welcome to show.
Good to see you, buddy.
Herbert looks good, but let's see what happens once teams get more film on him.
So this is literally the two effect, right? The problem is Brian, he's played a bunch of games.
He's played a lot of football to this point.
Nobody is necessarily found out what works or doesn't work against him.
Then we'll see if he's legit.
Lamar Jackson to a is probably the better example to we've got to add his lunch handed to him this past weekend.
Prince of Mathematicians.
I thought that was Bruce Bruce.
Is this your burner account? Herbert has been so accurate on every single deep ball he's thrown, Allen still scares me when he goes deep.
That's an interesting point, Prince, because I was pounding the table all offseason about the fact that Josh Allen's launch angle was off.
And then he came out and affirmed it after having met with Brett Farve and some other guys that he needed to basically throw the ball in the more of a rainbow type.
And early in the season, that Miami game he was throwing rainbows.
Josh Allen has has regressed and reverted to, uh, basically throwing darts 55 yards down the field, which you're talking about the difference of trying to, you know, hit a pool with the football.
You know, if you throw a rainbow from 60 yards away versus trying to hit a garbage can.
If you throw a dart 60 years 60 yards down the field, it's just not the same thing.
The run game is gonna be interesting.
I'm curious to see what becomes with run game this weekend.
This is a passing football team.
This is a This team is a passing football team, so I can't see a scenario where the Bills come in and they've got, you know, 30 scripted runs and 30 scripted passes I think that they'll Sprinkle it in.
They'll try to keep them off balance.
They'll try to see if this offensive line can kind of get some momentum and get some steam and get some continuity.
But I'm not necessarily sure that we're going to see a bunch of running.
Uh, this is absolutely true.
Matthew not having smoke were different team without him.
We gotta have smoke.
I would I would agree.
That clearly needs to.
Remains to be seen.
Uh, my burners have afterburners something.
What's going on there? Uh, dangerous is dude, it's nothing about film.
He's threading the needle between defenders, bro.
He has an insane arm strength and accuracy.
You can't defend it.
It's very similar to what we see from Josh Allen this year.
So literally Josh Allen being the project that he was took two years to get him to.
Basically where Herbert is starting from, Right.
So you know, Herbert started here, Josh, when he came to Lee started here and it took Alan 18 and 19 to get to where Herbert Waas.
But that just goes to tell you what this kid potentially could be.
I don't know that we've seen Herbert ceiling yet it will be interesting to see.
Uh, there was a comment by Pierre on Twitter today that he went back and rewatched Excuse me.
I'm drinking rum and coke, by the way, in case he was wondering, uh, that, uh, he went back and rewatched the Chargers game from last week and said that the charges were awful.
I didn't watch it.
I couldn't tell you to be honest with you.
I didn't even watch. The highlights.
Had a lot going on today on prepared as much as I could for this show.
But yeah, I don't.
Their numbers don't scream.
Jeffrey, this is good. We need to run the rush. The passer.
We need somebody to make hay on that defensive line like we need a have a Krekar.
Like, I think one of the things that Herbert hasn't maybe seen so far is a lot of stuff up in his face.
That's another thing about this Chargers team.
They don't blitz a whole lot.
So you're talking about a Josh Allen that's gonna have the potential.
They try to do the same thing that bills do.
They want to get their with their front guys and they don't want to pressure.
Josh Brown is gonna have some time to maybe pick this defense apart.
The question is, is, can he commit to the underneath stuff early or is he gonna try to press the ball 15 yards downfield like he normally does? Because he, as well as Herbert, has a very strong, accurate arm.
Eso Yeah, so we talked about confidence level.
We talked about where what we were feeling.
As far as this game goes, keys to this football game, which is kind of what we're talking about you guys were talking about already.
Oliver has to step it up.
The problem, Erica, that we've talked about and this is this has been pretty well do***ented as well is Oliver is playing out of position.
So Oliver is not a one technique defensive tackle, but he's been playing a lot of one technique football, and he's actually been doing pretty okay at it.
But he's out of position, so it's probably unrealistic at this point in time to expect to see a huge game from Ed Oliver.
I'm not saying it won't happen.
I'm just saying it's probably not likely to see uh, Joe, our Pamela says Joe, You're something like the commentators that we hate so much.
Can we talk about the positive of our team? Is there any there's always positive? Pam.
So what are some of the positives about our football team? I'm just telling you, I'm trying to be riel.
I'm just trying to give you guys the reality that this this game scares me more than it did when I was just looking at it, you know, just kind of like, Oh, it's the Chargers to three and seven, We should win this football game.
The left side of the charges line is invisible.
Got to get there.
And, uh, I would agree.
So, so positive about our football team at the top of the show.
Pam, I talked about the fact that this football team is getting healthy, and they are, uh, that is incredibly important.
The one player we're not gonna have this week, uh, is we're still not gonna have, uh, the weak side linebacker guy that we all love so much that this defense plays completely different when he's not in the in the lineup.
So he is not eligible to come back until next week.
But the rest of the team, the offensive line is getting healthy.
This defensive backfield is getting healthy.
The defensive lineman.
You know, Harrison Phillips has had a couple more weeks to get healthy to get those two a c l s that he tour that he tor both knees healthy.
So from a health standpoint, we've got a lot going on The fact that we're coming off of a bye and Sean McDermott, I think is three and o off of by weeks, he's gonna have a chance to go four.
No, this week is a positive.
And these were very kind of, like surface The weird, uh, weird surfacing.
Weird kind of positives.
But they're legit. Positives.
Health is a big thing.
I talked to my show on Monday.
If you guys were able to tune into the overreaction pod.
You know, we hear it all the time, and this is true.
The bills right now you don't wanna get hot early, and you don't want things to fall into place early.
You want to be playing your best football late.
And the bills were set up to do that.
If they can truly find what's going on with this offensive line and what's going on with this run game, and they can also truly find what's going on in this third quarter.
You're talking about a team that if they can play offense the way that this team has played offense this year, just play offense the way that we've seen you play offense, do what we've seen, you do right.
And if this defense can return to some semblance of form, which they've shown flashes off even in the Cardinals game, they showed some flashes of it.
If this defense can return to form Pamela, there's nobody, in my opinion, that could beat this football team.
This is probably the best football team in the NFL if they play offense the way that they can and they play defense the way that they should, the question is, can they do it? Big question for me, Excuse me, is who's playing quarterback this week? Is it Josh Norman? Is it safe to assume that Josh Norman just returns toe the line up? Is it Levi Wallace? Is that this young kid, the Dane Jackson kid? I don't know what that answer is.
Um quality quality Council is no game is ever easy.
Let's give it our all.
And that goes back to the destiny piece that I was talking about.
There is an aspect to this football game where they're going to have to come out and they're going toe have to.
They're gonna have to put.
They're gonna have to see this game for what it is and understand what's in front of them one game at a time.
But treating every single game like that's the game you need to make the playoffs.
Bruce is talking about the weather for this weekend here in Buffalo, and I'm in Lakeview case. I'm just wondering Hamburg.
It's raining out today, but supposed to be, I think, 50 tomorrow for Thanksgiving high forties, Sonny.
So the weather is going to be one of those things that it's not gonna hinder those guys too much.
When they're running around and playing, they're gonna sweat the one o'clock game start West Coast team coming East Coast, uh, is gonna be a problem.
The statistics prove it.
I don't care what you think about it.
It's not a big deal. It is a big deal.
The reality is the statistics prove that West Coast teams coming eat to the East Coast to play one o'clock football game affect with their rhythm effects with the routines.
And, Oh, by the way, Anthony, this Anthony Lynn coached football team is not a very good coached football team.
So the reality is, Is this game start is gonna affect you know, this this team as far as coming into buffalo, uh, playing against this Buffalo Bills football team, so and obviously coming, You know, us coming in healthy is gonna be huge.
Uh, adopted up to the reading through these things.
People aim enemy, so, yeah, I get the choir out. Amen.
So start getting some comments.
I'm ready. I'm ready to read some comments and questions.
Della Torre says Josh Norman will never be the same after that.
Uh, like Ryan s.
So the problem. So, yeah.
The trend Edwards hit from Adrian was Adrian Peterson.
Writer. Who was it? Who is it? The hit trend. Edwards.
The problem with that stiff arm The problem that I have with that stiff arm is the fact that that play was called back on a penalty.
So that play never happened.
It doesn't exist.
Meanwhile, it's still the highlight.
The G M F B shows for angry runs.
I think it won or was part of angry runs like that. No, no.
Like we don't show.
We don't show that the touchdown that Josh down through the game, Davis.
They got called back like that Play didn't happen.
Like against the Jets that this play didn't happen.
So I don't know why we're showing that stiff arm on TV anymore.
Could we just stop? This is good.
We probably need to slow down just for a minute. Dave.
Bring it really up in here on the Humpty Hotline.
You know what? From my family to yours.

Lottie! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Where to go? I'm missing it.
It's Ah, Let's do this real quick.
Why don't you all give me your final score? Predictions for this football game.
Final score predictions for the Buffalo Bills versus Los Angeles Chargers.
Herbert against Josh Allen in Josh Allen's house.
Give them to me.
My my final score. Prediction.
I think this is gonna be a shootout.
I think this is a situation where both defense's let up a lot of points because they dio This is a situation where both quarterbacks score or, like have a lot of stats because they do, and both teams score a lot of points they're coming in hot and heavy.
I see this game being in that 38 to 32 range, and I got the Buffalo Bills winning it, Jacob says.
Tebow says 31 27.
Open flying too fast now.
That's interesting, Says 37 23.
4 Bills over Chargers.
The W the new member.
The W 38 13 Buffalo Smiles.
Says 31 27 bills.
Anybody in here taking the Chargers? Anybody in here? We owe somebody blocked that man.
Where is Eliot tonight? Where is Eliot? Bruce Nolan? Eight.
If there's a man that has crunched the numbers and done the data research, it's Bruce.
If Bruce says we're winning 38 to 35 Bruce Bruce is probably gonna be right.
What's up? Zach 34 to 27 Buffalo Uh, McDermott has two weeks to plan for this defense.
I don't see the charges putting up a lot.
I like I like, I like what you think 32 28 soy sauce says over Buffalo bills over the Chargers.
And if I'm skipping some of you all, I'm sorry.
Bill, 38 charges 31.
Josh on 4, 20 and five touchdowns.
Who knew ceiling for Josh Allen? If that's the case, I like it.
I like it a lot.
A lot, A lot way, actually, dumb and dumber.
We actually, uh, showed that movie to my 13 year old daughter for the first time this week, this week this past weekend.
So that's what we did on the Bills by weekend made my daughter watch dumb and dumber so that now when we say our pets head, you're falling off like she'll understand what we're talking about.
Eric. What's up, bro? Thanks. The Super chat.
Thoughts for the last six games of the season.
Playoff win number one.
But what are your thoughts beyond man? That's a great question, because I think so much of it depends on how we get there, right? So how do we? What does it look like in the way that we get there, so just getting there because we have a relatively easy schedule.
This Chargers game is a scary game, but it's it's not.
It's not a must win, but it's not necessarily a push over the Steelers game is the hardest game on our schedule.
The rest of the games after that are very winnable, very winnable.
So what do we look like winning those games? If we win our first playoff game, you have to consider who were playing and then who's eliminated, eliminated after that.
Obviously, obviously, anything can happen in the playoffs.
Absolutely anything can happen in the playoffs.
So who gets in and who gets eliminated for me? If the bill, I just want to see the Bills win the East win a playoff game.
At that point in time, it's check the box for me.
You're talking about a Josh Allen that has impressed and has has progressed so far that many times this season, he Li we were living with him in wildest dreams land so that that box has been checked.
Like Josh Allen is the quarterback of the future for the Buffalo Bills. Check.
The Buffalo Bills won the A F C East check the Buffalo Bills win a playoff game.
Y'all like I don't know that is a Bills fan.
I could ask for much more.
That would be great to win a second playoff game.
Yes, but I'm gonna take what I got, and I'm gonna be excited about it.
I don't know what's going on with this guy.
How about him? I think you talk about Oklahoma.
Did Oklahoma play today? The Oklahoma Cowboys, right.
I don't watch college football. Bruce does.
He'll probably tell me if I'm writing that.
Let's do Let's do this.
So we're gonna have a little bit of fun with the last couple minutes of this show.
Uh, Cole Beasley.
You get two touchdowns this week P s, I have him and Allen and fantasy.
Dude, Allen is a must start in fantasy football.
First time, first time in the show. He said, I've seen welcome.
Glad you're chatting us up.
Bills Bills will be the Steelers and Sunday Night Football.
And their unbeaten streak clinched the A F C East all on the same day and gained so much national love until the very next week when all of a sudden guys like, what's his name? Peter Schrager is like I don't know if I could believe in the bills until they beat the they beat the Patriots again, like right and then that's what That's what we're gonna talk about.
This is the season of Josh Allen.
This is the season of Josh Allen.
Where was I going before y'all derailed me with these comments? I can't remember.
Let's do this with the last couple minutes of this show we're going to because we're also confident that the bills are going to win.
This is what I want you to participate in.

The stuffing, in my opinion, if you're stuffing is bad.
You need to slap your grandma because it's her fault for not passing that recipe down to somebody like or not.
Having a good recipe like stuffing is delicious.

Uh, let's wrap this show up and We'll get you guys out of here early so you can get to bed early.
We're gonna watch a lot of football tomorrow again.
The Ravens Steelers game has been moved.
It is not gonna be played tomorrow.
It's gonna be played on Sunday at 1.
15 on NBC, which is even weirder.
So there's only a 12.
It's old school tomorrow.
12 30 game Lions for 30 game Dallas Cowboys.
However, we're gonna spend the next three or four minutes.
I just burped in the microphone.
Three or four minutes, we're gonna spend the next three or four minutes of this show and what I want to know from you from Bill's Mafia.
In the comments, there's 155 of you listening to me right now.
I want to know the surprise of the game tomorrow.
Somebody else? I think Richard rushed through one in there already.
What is not tomorrow the surprise of the game on Sunday? Sorry.
What is your surprise player? Who is your breakout player? Breakout.
Like, who do you have? Who's gonna make noise? What is your prediction? A Sfar? Somebody else that Josh down is 4 20 with five touchdowns.
To me, that's a surprise.
Like Josh down throws 4 20 for five touchdowns.
That's a breakout.
That's a surprise. Who do you got? Somebody said something.
Uh, I thought I saw somebody said some of you roll through and talked about one of the running backs who was gonna rush for 100 100 years.
I thought I saw it or not.
So, uh, Dawson knocks.
I like that Dawson Knox has an opportunity.
And if you have not heard horrible diagnosis with Tommy Sweeney has a knish.
You with his heart due to co vid people are calling it a career for him.
I wouldn't go that far yet.
Like, let's not get that that far.
Philip is right there with it.
Surprised the game.
Dawson knocks two touchdowns, 111 yards.
That would be freaking amazing.
This kid has all the potential in the world.
All the potential in the world.
Like, Come on, Gabriel Davis, this is Babe Davis.
But unless you did that on purpose, gave Davis, uh, people.
You guys rolling? I mean, now Beasley is leading receiver.
Dude, I called Beasley against the Cardinals game.
I said Beasley would have 12, 12 or 13 targets and would lead the lead.
A lot of people calling Dawson knocks.
Managed to Dawson knocks six receptions, 56 yards and a touchdown.
Gibson from the PTF.
I don't know what that means, Beasley.
People talking about the game starts. So yeah, I misspoke.
You guys talk about tomorrow? Yeah.
My dad got you, Uh, know exactly.
We're talking about at Oliver to ***. That would be fantastic.
Um, J Spencer's texting me right now on the sly.
I can't pay attention yet.
Stop texting me Squirrel Tyler Kroft goes for two ds Imagine a world where Dawson knocks catches two ts and Tyler Kroft two DS and Tyler Kroft catches two DDS Um, Jerry Hughes gets two sacks.
That's actually a good chance.
Come on now, that would be amazing.
So he's got a 58 yarder bass somatic over 60 yards twice in Buffalo in 40 degree weather.
Zach Moss will have a career high football game.
Were the motor Go dang it.
There was one who said something about motor isn't flipping.
Oh, there's motor breaks.
A 65 yard run for a touchdown.
That would be something because Motor does not have blazing speed.
So it would have to be probably, I would guess, like a screen pass with some blockers out in front of him.
But I would love to see that to danger.
Two interceptions and three sacks from one guy.
Put him in the Hall of Fame.
If that happens, just put him in the Hall of Fame. Here we go.
Mitch Morris will start improved to everyone who incorrectly thought he wasn't good that he's a very good center.
And I will dunk, dunk on all of you all.
If Mitch Morris doesn't play tomorrow, I don't know what I'm gonna dio.
We will score. That would be a surprise, Matthew.
I like where your head's at.
We will score 14 points in the third quarter.
That would be amazing.
Uh, Cole Beasley could get two TDs.
So would love a tray white.
How about a pick? Six would be great.
To see a pick six out of this defense.
We almost had one from Trey Ah, couple weeks ago.
It'd be amazing to see a pick six out of this defense, but, uh, someone just call it Red on time.
Jane Jackson, pick six.

If you're scared to be out there with the big guys in your in the wrong business, because it's a blast out there amongst them on to be in the middle of all those big guys and really to go out there on beat their ass is whether it was all about if you go down there and hit somebody hard.
That's really what it's like a e smooth.
Sometimes you hit a guy with Mammoth hit.
You don't feel a thing, man.
Man, it's just like it's the best.
You feel like you go through the wall on, not even feel it, man, you feel invisible when you when you get a really good look on a guy e mean that you gotta give it.
You get every every every little extra little bit you could muster up from everything you wish you could just hold that forever, forever, forever
