00:01:31
Hello, everyone.
00:01:32
And welcome to a special episode of full press coverage.
00:01:35
Live NFL live.
00:01:36
I am joined this time by Mr Brandon Wit Ray R F p c Buffalo Bills managing editor.
00:01:42
We're going to be looking at the Bills and ah, Eagles match up this Sunday.
00:01:48
It's it's gonna be Ah, it's gonna be pretty interesting.
00:01:51
I could say there's a lot of stakes involved here, so Ah, Brandon, welcome to the show.
00:01:57
Glad to have you on here.
00:01:58
And what about those? Uh, what about those bills? How about them? Since playing against New England, we Unfortunately, I knew what I was gonna play out of the jewelry even though I did predictability.
00:02:12
Secretary, I think that with the Eagles, with the eagles, their backs up against the wall eyes, you're saying, Tell me before their backs up against the wall there one and three on the road offense is suing because this is the second just clean out often.
00:02:28
No, This would be a move to lose up the game.
00:02:31
And what could be a statement to maintain the respect that they built up slowly Since they're weak, one come back bigger against the Jets.
00:02:38
I'm and I'm not gonna lie. I'm a little worried.
00:02:41
I don't know how to be ableto handle this type of pressure with these guys because you have electric ****s in space and Brandon Graham coming from the outside of I'm a little scared.
00:02:50
Well, that's the thing.
00:02:51
At least you can fall back a little bit on the fact that, um and I apologize.
00:02:56
I think my Michael is that going to people out there and I fix it. I just fix it.
00:03:00
Brand and I were talking about these difficulties right before we went on the air.
00:03:04
Lo and behold, here we are having these difficulties.
00:03:07
But look, I think the one thing that they can fall back on is the fact that the Eagles secondary is not what their past rushes and not what their front seven is.
00:03:15
So if anything, if you can get Josh Allen sometime, maybe he can make things happen cause ah, you know, again, this is not only is it a weakness, but this is a problem for the Eagles that that is just not going away any time soon.
00:03:27
There's a reason why they were really into trying to get Jalen Ramsey and and perhaps could still make a move for a cornerback here before the trade deadline coming up.
00:03:36
So, um, but before we really dive into this game, I need you to tell me, and I need you to tell people out there why the bills are legitimate.
00:03:45
Five and one, Because, look, we've heard it.
00:03:47
Ah, you know, the F C E sucks.
00:03:49
You know, every team in the league in the division sucks.
00:03:52
The Patriots walked to the division lead.
00:03:53
Well, look, the Bills have a 501 record.
00:03:56
Their defense look statistically and through the eye test, like a top five defense in this league.
00:04:02
Um, tell people out there.
00:04:04
Why? Why? Why're they legit? It's quite simple.
00:04:08
49.
00:04:10
And that Buffalo Bills defense is the reason why that they have been waiting games.
00:04:14
You can argue that week to the offense against the New York Giants.
00:04:19
Stepped it up and they did pretty well book 20 it on the board.
00:04:21
Very impressive.
00:04:22
But if you look at if you were to sit down and watch every building that they had played this year, that defense has been playing shut down defense both in the past gets the rush, and it's led by this man.
00:04:34
Ah, second year, 21 year old.
00:04:36
He's three months older than me, which is I find really scary.
00:04:40
And he's just a great leader.
00:04:45
Pass rush.
00:04:46
The second during Micro Hydro Employer and Mr Clutch and sultry Davis White.
00:04:50
He they've been playing lights out, especially in the second half.
00:04:53
Buffalo has become something that they've never been.
00:04:56
That's a second half team, and I think that I saw that when they were struggling against Miami last week.
00:05:01
In the first half, they came alive.
00:05:03
That defense started getting pressure and they lit up that it's magic that.
00:05:08
See, I believe that's the firm resolve what Buffalo is.
00:05:11
Four games, about 500 they're going to see themselves in a potential wildcard spot.
00:05:15
Well, look, we saw this team show signs defensively last year, so I mean, this isn't just a team that overnight like this became, ah, great defensive team, which can sometimes, you know, be deceiving.
00:05:28
You can kind of, you know, all of a sudden put all your chips in one basket.
00:05:30
No, we've seen this buildup, especially last year.
00:05:33
We've seen it, So you know, I I have a lot more faith in this team defensively, again, like you mentioned before offensively is it's a different question.
00:05:41
Goods were still trying to figure out what Josh Alan can do because I think really the difference between you know the Bills.
00:05:48
And of course, you know, teams like the Patriots and not just the Patriots but other elite teams.
00:05:53
Is that offense in that quarterback? So what? What can Josh Alan do? And I think, look, this is a big opportunity because you know they're gonna be playing a Eagles team that has their backs up against the wall.
00:06:04
I mean, this team is borderline looking to make miss the playoffs this year, because if they follow the three and five in the NFC, their only hope is the fact that the NFC East is is probably one of the worst divisions this year.
00:06:18
They just better hope that the Cowboys, you know, trip up down the road because they're not making it in as a wild card when you have teams that are five and 16 and 16 to know.
00:06:28
So for the Eagles, this this is almost a must win for them, you know, almost halfway through the season.
00:06:34
So the Buffalo Bills are definitely gonna get a test here.
00:06:37
In the words of my father, I'm going to give him a shout out.
00:06:40
If this offense is two years behind what the defense is right now, Sean McDermott is a strictly defensive coach.
00:06:47
When he won't admit it or not, he knows his defense.
00:06:49
This offense is taken a slow step forward.
00:06:53
You know, Alan, finally, as not the not the All Star receiver, is not the All Pro once he's got a life.
00:06:58
John Brown.
00:07:00
Um, John Brown is a very, very reliable receiver.
00:07:03
He's either getting the first down or he's getting the touchdown.
00:07:06
That's just the story on him.
00:07:08
And they finally got cool Bees.
00:07:09
He started, come in the game a little bit.
00:07:11
I'm a little disappointed with his production, but I'm not the one running the offense.
00:07:15
I'm not the one looking at the patterns, so I got trust the process and what McDermott says, and I got to still believe in Brian table well in and that this is another little underlying.
00:07:24
I guess storyline to this game is obviously McDermott, coming from the Eagles organization having familiarity and kind of, you know, getting is, ah, you know, feet wet with that organization.
00:07:34
So there's a little There's a lot of little special meeting into this, and, you know, it is a far cry from the Rex Ryan error where you know where Obviously he where were Obviously he is his, you know, credentials as a defensive coordinator are their impressive.
00:07:50
I mean, we can't say anything about that.
00:07:51
And obviously that's why he, you know, got the job and everything.
00:07:55
And but he just wasn't head coaching material.
00:07:57
Now we see a guy who does have those defensive credit credentials, but also is a good head coach or at least has shown so far through this point that he is a good head coach.
00:08:08
Um, he just can't fall into the trap that Rex Ryan did pretty much from Day one.
00:08:13
And and that is to become obsessed with Bill Bell, check and and the Patriots.
00:08:18
That's something Ah Rex brought with him from the Jets organization so that I'm not putting that on the Bills.
00:08:23
That's just Ah, you got to be your own team.
00:08:25
And I think the Buffalo Bills are still trying to find that identity, especially on off vent.
00:08:29
But it's becoming clearer and clearer on defense who this team is, and if anyone tells you otherwise, they're they're kidding themselves.
00:08:38
McDormand is a disciplinarian.
00:08:39
You know he don't run your mouth to the media.
00:08:42
Don't let don't let the media know what we're talking about.
00:08:45
Stay low, come out and play smash mouth.
00:08:48
Buffalo Bills football, whether it's offense and defense, and that's something that he is trying to get himself set up for.
00:08:54
Buffalo for the culture that, like from the culture change from Brian to McDermott, is a huge gan us from having a player's coach always talking in the media.
00:09:04
Always sunshine Rex into a No.
00:09:07
This the way it's gonna be.
00:09:08
We're gonna make this sacrifice for the team, and we're just gonna play smash mouth football.
00:09:12
That's just the way it's gonna be.
00:09:13
And right now, Buffalo's producing anything.
00:09:16
Yeah, and and that's the thing to it's like you can tell.
00:09:19
Like all this noise that Rex Ryan brought with them and you put it perfectly is like the rah rah, you know? Hey, let's let's go out and hit him hard and you know all the cliches in the world you can think of.
00:09:29
That's who Rex Ryan was.
00:09:30
Well, you know, that's all well and good.
00:09:32
But if that's just your your surface, you have a lot of problems.
00:09:36
And that's kind of what it was, was.
00:09:37
You know, you go out there and talk a bit game and, you know, at the end of day, you're, you know, sitting up there at the podium, you know? Well, you know, I didn't quite work out for us this time, but, you know, hey, next time, you know, we got him.
00:09:49
You know that since that's the Bills were never gonna fix themselves that way.
00:09:53
But right now, they're doing what they have to do, because again, in this league, where we're passing an offense is a A look is a pretty easy thing to accomplish.
00:10:03
I'm not downplaying.
00:10:04
I'm just saying, Like, obviously, just look at the numbers.
00:10:06
They're inflated from what it was 15 years ago.
00:10:10
So for the defense is to be doing what they're doing.
00:10:12
The bills, the Patriots of 40 Niners.
00:10:15
It makes it even more impressive to me, despite who they, you know, played, you know, because again, I don't want to hear all those excuses.
00:10:23
Every team in this league is an NFL team.
00:10:25
So, um, I don't care what their record says.
00:10:27
I mean, look, the Jets beat the Cowboys, so you know.
00:10:31
So did they really suck that week or I don't know, I can't really understand.
00:10:36
So, as they say, as that famous saying goes, Bill Parcells, as you are, what your record is and the Bills are defensive team, you know, again, you can break down.
00:10:47
Ah, some of the best teams in the league and kind of really get into and say, Well, the Bills like this first is what this team has, and that's fine.
00:10:53
But right now, they're one of the best teams in the league because of that defense.
00:10:57
And, um, I'm really excited to see what they do against Ah, very, uh, desperate Eagles team.
00:11:04
Plus, I think the Eagles in the just the passing game alone, their 20th in the league, out 20.
00:11:09
But at the very bottom of that, their offense is just not getting going.
00:11:12
But they got to showing itself is gone.
00:11:14
All Sean just on Jackson.
00:11:16
Zach Ertz, Taos.
00:11:17
Got it.
00:11:18
I don't understand what is going on with this offense who just won off Super Bowl two years ago against your beloved doing the Patriots, and I just don't know how Buffalo could not take advantage of opportunity by shutting down with all of you have to do is get interior pressure.
00:11:33
That was my biggest thing, that I truth.
00:11:35
I've expressed about the Bills candidates, interior pressure.
00:11:38
And if you create the pressure with that Oliver and you put starlet to land there, it's going to cause when this is gonna call it once Thio take a step back.
00:11:47
And that's where Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy Kloss they're able to collapse the pocket and then boom.
00:11:53
More defensive football bats could be an opportunity for Josh telling the offense to put six on the board is just settling for three and and look like you said.
00:12:01
I mean, it's all.
00:12:02
It's great if you could get outside pressure, but especially against the Patriots, which is obviously, you know, the Bills biggest rival at this point, Um, radio.
00:12:12
Just gonna step up in the pocket and be like, All right, great.
00:12:14
Thanks.
00:12:15
Here's Edelman for 15 yards, right up the middle because, you know, you're you're lying collapse in, and it just opened up everything in the middle.
00:12:22
So, um yeah, and that's that's exactly And that's been kind of the M O and the kind of the, you know, quote unquote blueprint to beating the Patriots more so this year, too, because you really have to keep them from scoring because you know how good their defense is.
00:12:35
And, you know, obviously, as a Bills fan, you pay attention.
00:12:38
Maura Least I know you pay attention more to what the Patriots do.
00:12:42
Another division players go, and you know that this defense is different.
00:12:45
I say, like the Patriots defense, the Patriots in general, are what the Lions are this year for the last 10 12 years, but with a far better offense and quarterback.
00:12:56
And that is not.
00:12:57
And that's not to say anything bad about Matthew Stafford.
00:13:00
That's just kind of giving you the gap between what Brady is what he is, but more specifically, what the defense is, um, a team that gives up a lot of yards and the Lions, and since they're not as good as on offense, give up a lot of points as well.
00:13:15
So they rank low, you know, low on the totem pole.
00:13:18
I guess when it comes to defense of point rankings.
00:13:20
So the Bills, when they play the Patriots, they have to, you know more.
00:13:24
I mean, they've always had to keep the patients offense off the field.
00:13:27
But you're not gonna be able to get cheap yards against this team like in years past, where you know they could play great for two and 1/2 quarters and all of a sudden, Johnson Batta MOC is running one direction and you know a Bills offensive players run in the next and he's getting 70 yards.
00:13:45
So, um, for the Bills, you have to really get that right off the hop, and you've got to do what the Giants did and is not only score some points and be efficient off offensively, but you can't allow them to score.
00:13:57
And this goes for a lot of these other top teams because of again, the bill's weakness is their offense.
00:14:02
But you know that defense is who it's his play lights on, and that's something that it was hard for you to accept.
00:14:09
I'm an offensive guy.
00:14:11
I will always admit that I would love to see, like, prime example the L A ranch first can see Chief seem last year with my favorite game I've ever seen in my life.
00:14:20
I I'm strictly it.
00:14:22
Bolt it, bolt it. Don't put 4 50 points.
00:14:24
I am perfectly fine with that.
00:14:26
I have learned to accept Buffalo is a defensive team.
00:14:28
They're gonna be for the longest coming.
00:14:30
You know, I can't remember the last time that Buffalo had the head coach with an offensive mindset up until Chan Gailey.
00:14:37
And that was almost Babs.
00:14:38
Rex Ryan? Yeah, yeah, your big thing about it is that Josh, Alan and the passing game alone in the Bills offense the 21st in the passing game.
00:14:50
They're going up against a Philadelphia passing defense.
00:14:52
That's right, 27th near the bottom of the barrel.
00:14:55
This will be part of it for another throw for over 300 yards for the first time in his career, and we'll just be great just to utilize every single weapon he's got.
00:15:03
Brown, Beasley, Knox Get Lee Smith in there.
00:15:06
I love to see a six foot six and £275 man involved.
00:15:10
I love it.
00:15:11
I just think that this is the perfect time for Philadelphia to make a statement saying Hey, we're still in this But also a perfect opportunity for Buffalo Say, Hey, we're here to put football There were different Buffalo team.
00:15:24
What's going on like that's just the way it is.
00:15:26
That's wet season.
00:15:27
That's why I'm so scared for Bull team is gonna be a bowl 40.
00:15:31
In my opinion, I don't think neither officer move the ball.
00:15:34
Yeah, and And that stuff I mean in the advantage that the Bills have is that they have a guy like Frank or back there.
00:15:39
You can just you know, I mean, it defies age again.
00:15:44
Yeah.
00:15:46
I mean, the guy, What can you say about Frank? Or I mean, you just, you know, he's like and he's one of the things that you gives you a little bit more confidence in the bills because if they can establish run, if they can keep those defensive lineman honest now all of a sudden, those weaknesses of the Eagle secondary start to pop up a little bit more.
00:16:02
And these these past has become a little bit easier for Josh, Alan and and you just hope that he's He makes that step in and starts completing these more consistently and makes those right decisions, because I think the opportunities to complete passes and move the ball will be there.
00:16:16
It's just is he going to make the right decision to make the right read And that will tell you a lot and again, Like I said, I don't wanna you know, I had high hopes for this Eagles team.
00:16:25
They're certainly not what I thought they were gonna be this year to this point.
00:16:29
But their desperation, I think, accounts for a lot.
00:16:32
And you know, you're going to get a team that, um is either gonna be fighting for their playoff life or they're just gonna lay a dud and that'll be it for them.
00:16:40
But I'm I have a feeling they're gonna be fighting for their playoff lives in this in this game, both teams, I think Buffalo they need to get that 61 If they get their sixth win this Sunday tomorrow.
00:16:52
Actually, they're gonna match their total winds that they had last season, which is a unique major improvement.
00:16:59
It Philadelphia wins.
00:17:00
They're gonna set buffalo back and thistles where buffaloes hands to crumble And if it happens, you may not hear from me For a while I'm gonna be hiding in my room sucking on my thumb.
00:17:12
I I saw I saw this ridiculous stat and help me out here if if I'm wrong.
00:17:17
But when the Bills were going for their sixth win of their season, I feel I I saw something like their own 16 in their last 16 attempts or something like that before, I don't know something ridiculous.
00:17:28
So you kind of touched on it a little bit.
00:17:31
How important this six win is, especially at this point, the season eso not to like pooh pooh it are like, Oh, it's only six wins.
00:17:39
It's like, No, this is an important win and, you know, look, we talked about it a little bit before we got on the air here.
00:17:45
Um, it's unfortunate that Bills they're having this strong of a start this season.
00:17:49
First, you know, if they would have had this last year, they would have very well been in the mix for the division at this point.
00:17:55
But, you know, they could finish 12 and four and still finish two or three games behind in the division.
00:18:01
So it's just an unfortunate timing for them.
00:18:03
So, look, their focus has to be on a wild card.
00:18:06
So you're talking about to seat, you know, two spots, you know, the bills and another team at this point.
00:18:12
So, you know, everyone's important everyone, everyone you know, Especially since they got the next two weeks.
00:18:19
You're at home, you know, they've got filled.
00:18:21
Its we've got Washington next week.
00:18:22
And if you if you think about it, I'm not trying to have the schedule one important time.
00:18:27
If they could be Philadelphia, they could win their potential next week.
00:18:30
If they're gonna have Washington, they're gonna face, they're gonna fix Baker Mayfield to.
00:18:35
I had high hopes for this season and that they got Miami again.
00:18:40
I was the first time.
00:18:42
Weeks.
00:18:43
This is the first time where I'm going to say that I don't have no confidence in making that Patriot defense just unbelievable.
00:18:48
What? It's I predicted a lot of picks for Ah, uh uh.
00:18:53
What's his face? Last week? Completely blanked on it.
00:18:57
But baker, Sam Darnold.
00:18:59
There we go.
00:19:01
Uh, yeah, I'm predicted three for him.
00:19:02
He threw four.
00:19:03
I don't think it's gonna be much different for Baker.
00:19:05
I mean, the guy already leads the league in interceptions and this kind of this thing, you know, it's got that gun slinger.
00:19:11
Okay, I'm gonna make a mistake every now and again.
00:19:13
But unfortunately, every mistake that you make against the Patriots gets picked off somehow, even if it's a handoff.
00:19:20
You know, I'm kind of glad that Baker kind of settled down kind of guy that you know, me being a Avital Span.
00:19:27
I I'm not gonna lie.
00:19:29
I thought that Baker was the best quarterback comin into 2018 you know? And I thought that Alan, as you carry prima star was a row was the biggest boom or bust out.
00:19:39
Alan basically threw the ball straight into my face, just like he threw the ball up into the third up.
00:19:43
It's about 300 level section against my and classy, but I just believe that Alan is fully developed.
00:19:51
He's slowly learned he's working as mechanics.
00:19:54
His tangibles.
00:19:55
The one thing about him is actually two thinks he's making big mistakes.
00:19:59
For example, in New England, you can't make those long throws into the secondary, knowing what no.
00:20:05
One with McCord twins are gonna d'oh! All right, and then it's also he's gotta have that soft touch.
00:20:10
He's too busy slinging at 50 miles per hour.
00:20:12
55 your cut down like just settle down people.
00:20:16
If there was actually a video the pill of him throwing its cold, be easy for a touchdown.
00:20:21
Last week, I think I saw Beazley's a logo from the right to the left.
00:20:26
That's a simple three yard passed.
00:20:27
It was like to calm down, just laid in that, you know, as it's a soft hands and I think that is what's gonna defy this passing game is if he can complete the long lost.
00:20:37
That's another struggle with this very well.
00:20:40
And that's part of the development we're talking about is you have to find that That's why you know all the great arm talent in the world doesn't mean Jack.
00:20:48
If you can't figure out how to balance it with, you know, making the right throw and like you said in a quick slant, it's more important to lead the receiver and get him in the right position, too.
00:20:56
A be able to gain those extra yards and be avoid any sort of terrible contact.
00:21:00
The last thing you want to do is dislocate his elbow by just throwing the ball to him.
00:21:04
So you gotta find that right touch.
00:21:07
You gotta find that right.
00:21:08
Uh, you know, with each receiver and, you know, again, that's something that can develop.
00:21:11
I think everyone gets so huh focused and wanting thes young quarterbacks to just pick off and run with it from day one.
00:21:20
I mean, it just doesn't happen.
00:21:22
I mean, I mean, let me rephrase that it does happen.
00:21:25
It just doesn't happen every time.
00:21:26
You know, some players are just gonna take a little bit longer, too, come together.
00:21:31
And, uh, you know, for Josh, Alan, it's good that he has a team that's as good as it is defensively that that can help him overcome these mistakes.
00:21:40
Because if they were still given up a ton of points all of a sudden, he's out there more often, making more and more mistakes.
00:21:45
And you don't really learn, You know, when you win, you know, when things they're just, you know, fires being spread like that.
00:21:51
You just you can see how you develop? Yeah, exactly.
00:21:55
Yeah, the more mistakes you're making, the more likely that scouts are gonna be looking at the next Bills quarterback.
00:22:00
That the look in the draft because the mistakes he's made and that I want to go through that again.
00:22:04
I'm sick and tired of going through quarterback, quarterback, the quarterback, the quarterback just I probably want to be a franchise quarterback.
00:22:11
Yeah, he's He's made a ton of improvement.
00:22:13
Just work on the little things.
00:22:14
It's just the little things.
00:22:15
That's what mattered the most in this game and and again that that's that's exactly it.
00:22:19
Like you can't sit here and try to judge him based on, I mean, like poor Joshua Rosen.
00:22:24
I mean, the guy's the guy's career might be ruined because he keeps bouncing around between terrible organization to terrible organization.
00:22:31
You know, obviously, the Cardinals last year are a lot worse than what they are this year.
00:22:35
But, you know, the guy might never pick it up wherever he goes, because he's gonna be too damaged goods by the time it gets to wherever it is.
00:22:42
But you never know and Josh Allen sake again, he doesn't have to sit there and do everything.
00:22:47
He just has to do the right things, you know, he doesn't have to go above and beyond.
00:22:51
You know, eventually, eventually they're gonna need him to win a game for them.
00:22:55
But right now, all he has to do is focus on how how did just learn the game and how to read the game and play it from quarter 1 2/4 to 34 So Yep.
00:23:06
Yeah.
00:23:07
So there you are.
00:23:08
So I'm pretty excited for this game, obviously.
00:23:09
You know, bills being in the Patriots division, that's always a ah, you know, you gotta pay attention.
00:23:16
And then and of course, you know they're gonna be fighting for that that top spot, you know, at least for the next few weeks or so, and we'll see how it plays out.
00:23:22
But, um, i'll be excited to watch this game because I want to see if my Super Bowl NFC pick is gonna go in the toilet and ah, on and I'm stuck.
00:23:31
I'm starting to suspect that it might, because again, I as much as I I'll poke fun Sometimes that the Cowboys, I do think there a pretty good team and I don't think that they're gonna have this like implosion down the road.
00:23:42
So I think this is going to be kind of it for the Eagles and we we already see now that there's some division and some teams, some teams are great when they're winning.
00:23:52
Other teams can handle winning and losing.
00:23:56
The Eagles, I think, don't handle losing too well and it shows.
00:24:00
I mean, all this chatter coming out of camp.
00:24:03
All this criticism, all that stuff.
00:24:05
Um, it's gonna be a problem.
00:24:06
If they lose this game, then you can expect that to get even worse.
00:24:10
So how did they handle it? They cut their linebackers.
00:24:14
Fresh Kirk Cousins.
00:24:15
So is that it? That's the biggest headline for Philadelphia right now.
00:24:20
First since Zac Brown.
00:24:22
You know, former Buffalo Bill great player.
00:24:25
In my opinion, he's an excellent, excellent supper.
00:24:28
In my opinion, don't run your mouth next time.
00:24:31
That's the biggest thing.
00:24:33
The I think him sparking Kirk Cousins.
00:24:35
The reason why cousins and Minnesota are doing what they're doing so far.
00:24:39
So it's like it's whenever it's what It's funny, how that works out, right? How that do you You know, the flip flop there, and all of a sudden it's like, Oh, well, you know, hey, but hey, can it could've fan base.
00:24:49
Our team really exemplify themselves enough as Theo Eagles fan base and the Eagles franchise.
00:24:56
I mean, look, this theme is living off one Super Bowl win two years ago.
00:25:00
Um, and and it shows Anaconda is the mentality of the team.
00:25:03
So I guess we'll end it like this.
00:25:06
I don't know if you want to give a prediction.
00:25:09
Do you want to give a prediction? Do you have a prediction? I do have a point.
00:25:12
Okay, All right.
00:25:13
I do have to make a public service announcement belong to all you bills fans out there.
00:25:17
Go into the game tomorrow.
00:25:19
Enjoy.
00:25:20
Have fun, Go through tables, have some fun.
00:25:22
Please be careful on the hatch and throwing competition that just broke the news.
00:25:25
I'm just like, Oh my God, why would you? It doesn't seem like that Adds up. Well said.
00:25:30
It's the disaster waiting to happen.
00:25:33
It's possible to go big or go home.
00:25:35
I've been able to get it.
00:25:36
If they are crazy, it's so fun to be there.
00:25:38
But for a prediction, I said.
00:25:40
You know, low scoring game Wolf offense got trouble throwing the ball.
00:25:43
I firmly league Maurin Buffalo's defense than Philly's defense on Lee because both alone has shown to be effective on all three levels of the game so far.
00:25:52
Phillies only got the pass rush.
00:25:53
If you could take that on the game.
00:25:55
Alan and Gore, wherever you want to throw into the mix, is gonna have a great game, but not enough to put up 28 35 points.
00:26:02
Now this is going to be a close 14 to 10.
00:26:05
Buffalo Bill's victory over the Hill on the equals.
00:26:08
Okay, so you're going really low scoring.
00:26:10
I'm not too, too far off.
00:26:12
I do have the bill scoring about 21 to 24 point, so I kind of settled on 23.
00:26:17
That was kind of That's what I'm landed on.
00:26:20
So I got 23 14 kind of an odd score.
00:26:23
But at the same time, I do think the Bills eventually get to the Eagles secondary.
00:26:27
And I do think that they, uh, you know, put up a couple touchdowns again.
00:26:30
But I I do feel like it's gonna be a lot of what you said.
00:26:32
Very defensive.
00:26:33
Very, um, you know, in the in the trenches type of game.
00:26:37
And and it's sometimes sloppy offensively from both teams, but mostly I think the Eagles.
00:26:42
So, um, but we both got the Bills winning so six and one first time getting six wins and, ah, this early in the season since six wins in the middle of season.
00:26:54
All the guys I can't remember.
00:26:55
Yeah, I'm Su 2015 or 2016.
00:26:58
I'm just gonna 20 No. 2017.
00:27:00
I think maybe this early, you know that it's it's strange.
00:27:04
It's been a while.
00:27:05
I would imagine I'm used to seeing them being under 500 by five games by now.
00:27:09
So this is kind of new adjustment.
00:27:10
I have to like, look up actual statistics, say fine.
00:27:13
It's like hard work.
00:27:14
It's like, Oh, my God, there's a lot of work that comes with winning Now It's fun.
00:27:18
Enjoy it.
00:27:19
Like I said, I mean, it's gonna be fun.
00:27:20
And I really do hope that you know when when Patriots and Bill's meat down this, you know, down the road towards the end of the season, uh, there's gonna be some playoff implications.
00:27:30
It may not be the division, but there's gonna be some playoff implications, at least for the Bills and where they stand.
00:27:35
So it wouldn't surprise me to see Buffalo not lose another game up into that point, even though when they faced only when there's a week 16 and believe it's gonna be, like both, so has the capabilities off.
00:27:50
I get that That's not awkward.
00:27:52
That's like saying, yet Josh Rosen committed with everything else.
00:27:55
It's just remember, it seems very unrealistic.
00:27:58
If you'll look at who their plane and you look at the office they're going up against and you see the defense that we're gonna have this entire season, it's not out of the picture.
00:28:07
You can't count anything out like you can't cannot nick Foles beating linguine and Super Bowl.
00:28:11
So thank you jabbing that knife in my back.
00:28:15
It's all right.
00:28:16
I get joy over watching the Eagles just kind of implode here.
00:28:20
So that's why I'm kind of room for the Bills in this one.
00:28:23
Like looks like I said, Like I said, I mean, the Bills could win 12 13 games this year and still finish a second in this division and that again.
00:28:33
That's kind of unlucky on their part.
00:28:35
But that shouldn't that shouldn't ah dissuade you from saying, Oh, the Bills are a great team and they could win on any given Sunday.
00:28:42
I mean, they're they're literally the only team to give the Patriots a game this season.
00:28:47
The only team and end like, Yeah, OK, you talked about the schedule.
00:28:50
But, you know, when you when you put up what what? The Patriots, especially their what they're doing defensively, You know, you have to go back as far as 1930 to find statistics that compare this to it.
00:29:00
So again, I don't want to hear about who they played.
00:29:02
It's like, Yeah, great.
00:29:04
A lot of these other teams have played these teams as well.
00:29:06
They're not beating them by 30 points, but guess what? The bills they lost by only six.
00:29:11
That tells you a lot so late again.
00:29:13
Late, the 4/4 too late fourth quarter.
00:29:15
You know, it's looking out the Bills defense gave the office not one, not two, but three different times to make it come back to tie the game and maybe even potential when and what you know they always down.
00:29:26
And, you know, I I look, that wasn't on the air. I would.
00:29:30
There's no record of me crying.
00:29:31
Five and one.
00:29:32
It's okay.
00:29:33
It's okay.
00:29:35
55 and one.

00:01:31
Hello, everyone.
00:01:32
And welcome to a special episode of full press coverage.
00:01:35
Live NFL live.
00:01:36
I am joined this time by Mr Brandon Wit Ray R F p c Buffalo Bills managing editor.
00:01:42
We're going to be looking at the Bills and ah, Eagles match up this Sunday.
00:01:48
It's it's gonna be Ah, it's gonna be pretty interesting.
00:01:51
I could say there's a lot of stakes involved here, so Ah, Brandon, welcome to the show.
00:01:57
Glad to have you on here.
00:01:58
And what about those? Uh, what about those bills? How about them? Since playing against New England, we Unfortunately, I knew what I was gonna play out of the jewelry even though I did predictability.
00:02:12
Secretary, I think that with the Eagles, with the eagles, their backs up against the wall eyes, you're saying, Tell me before their backs up against the wall there one and three on the road offense is suing because this is the second just clean out often.
00:02:28
No, This would be a move to lose up the game.
00:02:31
And what could be a statement to maintain the respect that they built up slowly Since they're weak, one come back bigger against the Jets.
00:02:38
I'm and I'm not gonna lie. I'm a little worried.
00:02:41
I don't know how to be ableto handle this type of pressure with these guys because you have electric ****s in space and Brandon Graham coming from the outside of I'm a little scared.
00:02:50
Well, that's the thing.
00:02:51
At least you can fall back a little bit on the fact that, um and I apologize.
00:02:56
I think my Michael is that going to people out there and I fix it. I just fix it.
00:03:00
Brand and I were talking about these difficulties right before we went on the air.
00:03:04
Lo and behold, here we are having these difficulties.
00:03:07
But look, I think the one thing that they can fall back on is the fact that the Eagles secondary is not what their past rushes and not what their front seven is.
00:03:15
So if anything, if you can get Josh Allen sometime, maybe he can make things happen cause ah, you know, again, this is not only is it a weakness, but this is a problem for the Eagles that that is just not going away any time soon.
00:03:27
There's a reason why they were really into trying to get Jalen Ramsey and and perhaps could still make a move for a cornerback here before the trade deadline coming up.
00:03:36
So, um, but before we really dive into this game, I need you to tell me, and I need you to tell people out there why the bills are legitimate.
00:03:45
Five and one, Because, look, we've heard it.
00:03:47
Ah, you know, the F C E sucks.
00:03:49
You know, every team in the league in the division sucks.
00:03:52
The Patriots walked to the division lead.
00:03:53
Well, look, the Bills have a 501 record.
00:03:56
Their defense look statistically and through the eye test, like a top five defense in this league.
00:04:02
Um, tell people out there.
00:04:04
Why? Why? Why're they legit? It's quite simple.
00:04:08
49.
00:04:10
And that Buffalo Bills defense is the reason why that they have been waiting games.
00:04:14
You can argue that week to the offense against the New York Giants.
00:04:19
Stepped it up and they did pretty well book 20 it on the board.
00:04:21
Very impressive.
00:04:22
But if you look at if you were to sit down and watch every building that they had played this year, that defense has been playing shut down defense both in the past gets the rush, and it's led by this man.
00:04:34
Ah, second year, 21 year old.
00:04:36
He's three months older than me, which is I find really scary.
00:04:40
And he's just a great leader.
00:04:45
Pass rush.
00:04:46
The second during Micro Hydro Employer and Mr Clutch and sultry Davis White.
00:04:50
He they've been playing lights out, especially in the second half.
00:04:53
Buffalo has become something that they've never been.
00:04:56
That's a second half team, and I think that I saw that when they were struggling against Miami last week.
00:05:01
In the first half, they came alive.
00:05:03
That defense started getting pressure and they lit up that it's magic that.
00:05:08
See, I believe that's the firm resolve what Buffalo is.
00:05:11
Four games, about 500 they're going to see themselves in a potential wildcard spot.
00:05:15
Well, look, we saw this team show signs defensively last year, so I mean, this isn't just a team that overnight like this became, ah, great defensive team, which can sometimes, you know, be deceiving.
00:05:28
You can kind of, you know, all of a sudden put all your chips in one basket.
00:05:30
No, we've seen this buildup, especially last year.
00:05:33
We've seen it, So you know, I I have a lot more faith in this team defensively, again, like you mentioned before offensively is it's a different question.
00:05:41
Goods were still trying to figure out what Josh Alan can do because I think really the difference between you know the Bills.
00:05:48
And of course, you know, teams like the Patriots and not just the Patriots but other elite teams.
00:05:53
Is that offense in that quarterback? So what? What can Josh Alan do? And I think, look, this is a big opportunity because you know they're gonna be playing a Eagles team that has their backs up against the wall.
00:06:04
I mean, this team is borderline looking to make miss the playoffs this year, because if they follow the three and five in the NFC, their only hope is the fact that the NFC East is is probably one of the worst divisions this year.
00:06:18
They just better hope that the Cowboys, you know, trip up down the road because they're not making it in as a wild card when you have teams that are five and 16 and 16 to know.
00:06:28
So for the Eagles, this this is almost a must win for them, you know, almost halfway through the season.
00:06:34
So the Buffalo Bills are definitely gonna get a test here.
00:06:37
In the words of my father, I'm going to give him a shout out.
00:06:40
If this offense is two years behind what the defense is right now, Sean McDermott is a strictly defensive coach.
00:06:47
When he won't admit it or not, he knows his defense.
00:06:49
This offense is taken a slow step forward.
00:06:53
You know, Alan, finally, as not the not the All Star receiver, is not the All Pro once he's got a life.
00:06:58
John Brown.
00:07:00
Um, John Brown is a very, very reliable receiver.
00:07:03
He's either getting the first down or he's getting the touchdown.
00:07:06
That's just the story on him.
00:07:08
And they finally got cool Bees.
00:07:09
He started, come in the game a little bit.
00:07:11
I'm a little disappointed with his production, but I'm not the one running the offense.
00:07:15
I'm not the one looking at the patterns, so I got trust the process and what McDermott says, and I got to still believe in Brian table well in and that this is another little underlying.
00:07:24
I guess storyline to this game is obviously McDermott, coming from the Eagles organization having familiarity and kind of, you know, getting is, ah, you know, feet wet with that organization.
00:07:34
So there's a little There's a lot of little special meeting into this, and, you know, it is a far cry from the Rex Ryan error where you know where Obviously he where were Obviously he is his, you know, credentials as a defensive coordinator are their impressive.
00:07:50
I mean, we can't say anything about that.
00:07:51
And obviously that's why he, you know, got the job and everything.
00:07:55
And but he just wasn't head coaching material.
00:07:57
Now we see a guy who does have those defensive credit credentials, but also is a good head coach or at least has shown so far through this point that he is a good head coach.
00:08:08
Um, he just can't fall into the trap that Rex Ryan did pretty much from Day one.
00:08:13
And and that is to become obsessed with Bill Bell, check and and the Patriots.
00:08:18
That's something Ah Rex brought with him from the Jets organization so that I'm not putting that on the Bills.
00:08:23
That's just Ah, you got to be your own team.
00:08:25
And I think the Buffalo Bills are still trying to find that identity, especially on off vent.
00:08:29
But it's becoming clearer and clearer on defense who this team is, and if anyone tells you otherwise, they're they're kidding themselves.
00:08:38
McDormand is a disciplinarian.
00:08:39
You know he don't run your mouth to the media.
00:08:42
Don't let don't let the media know what we're talking about.
00:08:45
Stay low, come out and play smash mouth.
00:08:48
Buffalo Bills football, whether it's offense and defense, and that's something that he is trying to get himself set up for.
00:08:54
Buffalo for the culture that, like from the culture change from Brian to McDermott, is a huge gan us from having a player's coach always talking in the media.
00:09:04
Always sunshine Rex into a No.
00:09:07
This the way it's gonna be.
00:09:08
We're gonna make this sacrifice for the team, and we're just gonna play smash mouth football.
00:09:12
That's just the way it's gonna be.
00:09:13
And right now, Buffalo's producing anything.
00:09:16
Yeah, and and that's the thing to it's like you can tell.
00:09:19
Like all this noise that Rex Ryan brought with them and you put it perfectly is like the rah rah, you know? Hey, let's let's go out and hit him hard and you know all the cliches in the world you can think of.
00:09:29
That's who Rex Ryan was.
00:09:30
Well, you know, that's all well and good.
00:09:32
But if that's just your your surface, you have a lot of problems.
00:09:36
And that's kind of what it was, was.
00:09:37
You know, you go out there and talk a bit game and, you know, at the end of day, you're, you know, sitting up there at the podium, you know? Well, you know, I didn't quite work out for us this time, but, you know, hey, next time, you know, we got him.
00:09:49
You know that since that's the Bills were never gonna fix themselves that way.
00:09:53
But right now, they're doing what they have to do, because again, in this league, where we're passing an offense is a A look is a pretty easy thing to accomplish.
00:10:03
I'm not downplaying.
00:10:04
I'm just saying, Like, obviously, just look at the numbers.
00:10:06
They're inflated from what it was 15 years ago.
00:10:10
So for the defense is to be doing what they're doing.
00:10:12
The bills, the Patriots of 40 Niners.
00:10:15
It makes it even more impressive to me, despite who they, you know, played, you know, because again, I don't want to hear all those excuses.
00:10:23
Every team in this league is an NFL team.
00:10:25
So, um, I don't care what their record says.
00:10:27
I mean, look, the Jets beat the Cowboys, so you know.
00:10:31
So did they really suck that week or I don't know, I can't really understand.
00:10:36
So, as they say, as that famous saying goes, Bill Parcells, as you are, what your record is and the Bills are defensive team, you know, again, you can break down.
00:10:47
Ah, some of the best teams in the league and kind of really get into and say, Well, the Bills like this first is what this team has, and that's fine.
00:10:53
But right now, they're one of the best teams in the league because of that defense.
00:10:57
And, um, I'm really excited to see what they do against Ah, very, uh, desperate Eagles team.
00:11:04
Plus, I think the Eagles in the just the passing game alone, their 20th in the league, out 20.
00:11:09
But at the very bottom of that, their offense is just not getting going.
00:11:12
But they got to showing itself is gone.
00:11:14
All Sean just on Jackson.
00:11:16
Zach Ertz, Taos.
00:11:17
Got it.
00:11:18
I don't understand what is going on with this offense who just won off Super Bowl two years ago against your beloved doing the Patriots, and I just don't know how Buffalo could not take advantage of opportunity by shutting down with all of you have to do is get interior pressure.
00:11:33
That was my biggest thing, that I truth.
00:11:35
I've expressed about the Bills candidates, interior pressure.
00:11:38
And if you create the pressure with that Oliver and you put starlet to land there, it's going to cause when this is gonna call it once Thio take a step back.
00:11:47
And that's where Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy Kloss they're able to collapse the pocket and then boom.
00:11:53
More defensive football bats could be an opportunity for Josh telling the offense to put six on the board is just settling for three and and look like you said.
00:12:01
I mean, it's all.
00:12:02
It's great if you could get outside pressure, but especially against the Patriots, which is obviously, you know, the Bills biggest rival at this point, Um, radio.
00:12:12
Just gonna step up in the pocket and be like, All right, great.
00:12:14
Thanks.
00:12:15
Here's Edelman for 15 yards, right up the middle because, you know, you're you're lying collapse in, and it just opened up everything in the middle.
00:12:22
So, um yeah, and that's that's exactly And that's been kind of the M O and the kind of the, you know, quote unquote blueprint to beating the Patriots more so this year, too, because you really have to keep them from scoring because you know how good their defense is.
00:12:35
And, you know, obviously, as a Bills fan, you pay attention.
00:12:38
Maura Least I know you pay attention more to what the Patriots do.
00:12:42
Another division players go, and you know that this defense is different.
00:12:45
I say, like the Patriots defense, the Patriots in general, are what the Lions are this year for the last 10 12 years, but with a far better offense and quarterback.
00:12:56
And that is not.
00:12:57
And that's not to say anything bad about Matthew Stafford.
00:13:00
That's just kind of giving you the gap between what Brady is what he is, but more specifically, what the defense is, um, a team that gives up a lot of yards and the Lions, and since they're not as good as on offense, give up a lot of points as well.
00:13:15
So they rank low, you know, low on the totem pole.
00:13:18
I guess when it comes to defense of point rankings.
00:13:20
So the Bills, when they play the Patriots, they have to, you know more.
00:13:24
I mean, they've always had to keep the patients offense off the field.
00:13:27
But you're not gonna be able to get cheap yards against this team like in years past, where you know they could play great for two and 1/2 quarters and all of a sudden, Johnson Batta MOC is running one direction and you know a Bills offensive players run in the next and he's getting 70 yards.
00:13:45
So, um, for the Bills, you have to really get that right off the hop, and you've got to do what the Giants did and is not only score some points and be efficient off offensively, but you can't allow them to score.
00:13:57
And this goes for a lot of these other top teams because of again, the bill's weakness is their offense.
00:14:02
But you know that defense is who it's his play lights on, and that's something that it was hard for you to accept.
00:14:09
I'm an offensive guy.
00:14:11
I will always admit that I would love to see, like, prime example the L A ranch first can see Chief seem last year with my favorite game I've ever seen in my life.
00:14:20
I I'm strictly it.
00:14:22
Bolt it, bolt it. Don't put 4 50 points.
00:14:24
I am perfectly fine with that.
00:14:26
I have learned to accept Buffalo is a defensive team.
00:14:28
They're gonna be for the longest coming.
00:14:30
You know, I can't remember the last time that Buffalo had the head coach with an offensive mindset up until Chan Gailey.
00:14:37
And that was almost Babs.
00:14:38
Rex Ryan? Yeah, yeah, your big thing about it is that Josh, Alan and the passing game alone in the Bills offense the 21st in the passing game.
00:14:50
They're going up against a Philadelphia passing defense.
00:14:52
That's right, 27th near the bottom of the barrel.
00:14:55
This will be part of it for another throw for over 300 yards for the first time in his career, and we'll just be great just to utilize every single weapon he's got.
00:15:03
Brown, Beasley, Knox Get Lee Smith in there.
00:15:06
I love to see a six foot six and £275 man involved.
00:15:10
I love it.
00:15:11
I just think that this is the perfect time for Philadelphia to make a statement saying Hey, we're still in this But also a perfect opportunity for Buffalo Say, Hey, we're here to put football There were different Buffalo team.
00:15:24
What's going on like that's just the way it is.
00:15:26
That's wet season.
00:15:27
That's why I'm so scared for Bull team is gonna be a bowl 40.
00:15:31
In my opinion, I don't think neither officer move the ball.
00:15:34
Yeah, and And that stuff I mean in the advantage that the Bills have is that they have a guy like Frank or back there.
00:15:39
You can just you know, I mean, it defies age again.
00:15:44
Yeah.
00:15:46
I mean, the guy, What can you say about Frank? Or I mean, you just, you know, he's like and he's one of the things that you gives you a little bit more confidence in the bills because if they can establish run, if they can keep those defensive lineman honest now all of a sudden, those weaknesses of the Eagle secondary start to pop up a little bit more.
00:16:02
And these these past has become a little bit easier for Josh, Alan and and you just hope that he's He makes that step in and starts completing these more consistently and makes those right decisions, because I think the opportunities to complete passes and move the ball will be there.
00:16:16
It's just is he going to make the right decision to make the right read And that will tell you a lot and again, Like I said, I don't wanna you know, I had high hopes for this Eagles team.
00:16:25
They're certainly not what I thought they were gonna be this year to this point.
00:16:29
But their desperation, I think, accounts for a lot.
00:16:32
And you know, you're going to get a team that, um is either gonna be fighting for their playoff life or they're just gonna lay a dud and that'll be it for them.
00:16:40
But I'm I have a feeling they're gonna be fighting for their playoff lives in this in this game, both teams, I think Buffalo they need to get that 61 If they get their sixth win this Sunday tomorrow.
00:16:52
Actually, they're gonna match their total winds that they had last season, which is a unique major improvement.
00:16:59
It Philadelphia wins.
00:17:00
They're gonna set buffalo back and thistles where buffaloes hands to crumble And if it happens, you may not hear from me For a while I'm gonna be hiding in my room sucking on my thumb.
00:17:12
I I saw I saw this ridiculous stat and help me out here if if I'm wrong.
00:17:17
But when the Bills were going for their sixth win of their season, I feel I I saw something like their own 16 in their last 16 attempts or something like that before, I don't know something ridiculous.
00:17:28
So you kind of touched on it a little bit.
00:17:31
How important this six win is, especially at this point, the season eso not to like pooh pooh it are like, Oh, it's only six wins.
00:17:39
It's like, No, this is an important win and, you know, look, we talked about it a little bit before we got on the air here.
00:17:45
Um, it's unfortunate that Bills they're having this strong of a start this season.
00:17:49
First, you know, if they would have had this last year, they would have very well been in the mix for the division at this point.
00:17:55
But, you know, they could finish 12 and four and still finish two or three games behind in the division.
00:18:01
So it's just an unfortunate timing for them.
00:18:03
So, look, their focus has to be on a wild card.
00:18:06
So you're talking about to seat, you know, two spots, you know, the bills and another team at this point.
00:18:12
So, you know, everyone's important everyone, everyone you know, Especially since they got the next two weeks.
00:18:19
You're at home, you know, they've got filled.
00:18:21
Its we've got Washington next week.
00:18:22
And if you if you think about it, I'm not trying to have the schedule one important time.
00:18:27
If they could be Philadelphia, they could win their potential next week.
00:18:30
If they're gonna have Washington, they're gonna face, they're gonna fix Baker Mayfield to.
00:18:35
I had high hopes for this season and that they got Miami again.
00:18:40
I was the first time.
00:18:42
Weeks.
00:18:43
This is the first time where I'm going to say that I don't have no confidence in making that Patriot defense just unbelievable.
00:18:48
What? It's I predicted a lot of picks for Ah, uh uh.
00:18:53
What's his face? Last week? Completely blanked on it.
00:18:57
But baker, Sam Darnold.
00:18:59
There we go.
00:19:01
Uh, yeah, I'm predicted three for him.
00:19:02
He threw four.
00:19:03
I don't think it's gonna be much different for Baker.
00:19:05
I mean, the guy already leads the league in interceptions and this kind of this thing, you know, it's got that gun slinger.
00:19:11
Okay, I'm gonna make a mistake every now and again.
00:19:13
But unfortunately, every mistake that you make against the Patriots gets picked off somehow, even if it's a handoff.
00:19:20
You know, I'm kind of glad that Baker kind of settled down kind of guy that you know, me being a Avital Span.
00:19:27
I I'm not gonna lie.
00:19:29
I thought that Baker was the best quarterback comin into 2018 you know? And I thought that Alan, as you carry prima star was a row was the biggest boom or bust out.
00:19:39
Alan basically threw the ball straight into my face, just like he threw the ball up into the third up.
00:19:43
It's about 300 level section against my and classy, but I just believe that Alan is fully developed.
00:19:51
He's slowly learned he's working as mechanics.
00:19:54
His tangibles.
00:19:55
The one thing about him is actually two thinks he's making big mistakes.
00:19:59
For example, in New England, you can't make those long throws into the secondary, knowing what no.
00:20:05
One with McCord twins are gonna d'oh! All right, and then it's also he's gotta have that soft touch.
00:20:10
He's too busy slinging at 50 miles per hour.
00:20:12
55 your cut down like just settle down people.
00:20:16
If there was actually a video the pill of him throwing its cold, be easy for a touchdown.
00:20:21
Last week, I think I saw Beazley's a logo from the right to the left.
00:20:26
That's a simple three yard passed.
00:20:27
It was like to calm down, just laid in that, you know, as it's a soft hands and I think that is what's gonna defy this passing game is if he can complete the long lost.
00:20:37
That's another struggle with this very well.
00:20:40
And that's part of the development we're talking about is you have to find that That's why you know all the great arm talent in the world doesn't mean Jack.
00:20:48
If you can't figure out how to balance it with, you know, making the right throw and like you said in a quick slant, it's more important to lead the receiver and get him in the right position, too.
00:20:56
A be able to gain those extra yards and be avoid any sort of terrible contact.
00:21:00
The last thing you want to do is dislocate his elbow by just throwing the ball to him.
00:21:04
So you gotta find that right touch.
00:21:07
You gotta find that right.
00:21:08
Uh, you know, with each receiver and, you know, again, that's something that can develop.
00:21:11
I think everyone gets so huh focused and wanting thes young quarterbacks to just pick off and run with it from day one.
00:21:20
I mean, it just doesn't happen.
00:21:22
I mean, I mean, let me rephrase that it does happen.
00:21:25
It just doesn't happen every time.
00:21:26
You know, some players are just gonna take a little bit longer, too, come together.
00:21:31
And, uh, you know, for Josh, Alan, it's good that he has a team that's as good as it is defensively that that can help him overcome these mistakes.
00:21:40
Because if they were still given up a ton of points all of a sudden, he's out there more often, making more and more mistakes.
00:21:45
And you don't really learn, You know, when you win, you know, when things they're just, you know, fires being spread like that.
00:21:51
You just you can see how you develop? Yeah, exactly.
00:21:55
Yeah, the more mistakes you're making, the more likely that scouts are gonna be looking at the next Bills quarterback.
00:22:00
That the look in the draft because the mistakes he's made and that I want to go through that again.
00:22:04
I'm sick and tired of going through quarterback, quarterback, the quarterback, the quarterback just I probably want to be a franchise quarterback.
00:22:11
Yeah, he's He's made a ton of improvement.
00:22:13
Just work on the little things.
00:22:14
It's just the little things.
00:22:15
That's what mattered the most in this game and and again that that's that's exactly it.
00:22:19
Like you can't sit here and try to judge him based on, I mean, like poor Joshua Rosen.
00:22:24
I mean, the guy's the guy's career might be ruined because he keeps bouncing around between terrible organization to terrible organization.
00:22:31
You know, obviously, the Cardinals last year are a lot worse than what they are this year.
00:22:35
But, you know, the guy might never pick it up wherever he goes, because he's gonna be too damaged goods by the time it gets to wherever it is.
00:22:42
But you never know and Josh Allen sake again, he doesn't have to sit there and do everything.
00:22:47
He just has to do the right things, you know, he doesn't have to go above and beyond.
00:22:51
You know, eventually, eventually they're gonna need him to win a game for them.
00:22:55
But right now, all he has to do is focus on how how did just learn the game and how to read the game and play it from quarter 1 2/4 to 34 So Yep.
00:23:06
Yeah.
00:23:07
So there you are.
00:23:08
So I'm pretty excited for this game, obviously.
00:23:09
You know, bills being in the Patriots division, that's always a ah, you know, you gotta pay attention.
00:23:16
And then and of course, you know they're gonna be fighting for that that top spot, you know, at least for the next few weeks or so, and we'll see how it plays out.
00:23:22
But, um, i'll be excited to watch this game because I want to see if my Super Bowl NFC pick is gonna go in the toilet and ah, on and I'm stuck.
00:23:31
I'm starting to suspect that it might, because again, I as much as I I'll poke fun Sometimes that the Cowboys, I do think there a pretty good team and I don't think that they're gonna have this like implosion down the road.
00:23:42
So I think this is going to be kind of it for the Eagles and we we already see now that there's some division and some teams, some teams are great when they're winning.
00:23:52
Other teams can handle winning and losing.
00:23:56
The Eagles, I think, don't handle losing too well and it shows.
00:24:00
I mean, all this chatter coming out of camp.
00:24:03
All this criticism, all that stuff.
00:24:05
Um, it's gonna be a problem.
00:24:06
If they lose this game, then you can expect that to get even worse.
00:24:10
So how did they handle it? They cut their linebackers.
00:24:14
Fresh Kirk Cousins.
00:24:15
So is that it? That's the biggest headline for Philadelphia right now.
00:24:20
First since Zac Brown.
00:24:22
You know, former Buffalo Bill great player.
00:24:25
In my opinion, he's an excellent, excellent supper.
00:24:28
In my opinion, don't run your mouth next time.
00:24:31
That's the biggest thing.
00:24:33
The I think him sparking Kirk Cousins.
00:24:35
The reason why cousins and Minnesota are doing what they're doing so far.
00:24:39
So it's like it's whenever it's what It's funny, how that works out, right? How that do you You know, the flip flop there, and all of a sudden it's like, Oh, well, you know, hey, but hey, can it could've fan base.
00:24:49
Our team really exemplify themselves enough as Theo Eagles fan base and the Eagles franchise.
00:24:56
I mean, look, this theme is living off one Super Bowl win two years ago.
00:25:00
Um, and and it shows Anaconda is the mentality of the team.
00:25:03
So I guess we'll end it like this.
00:25:06
I don't know if you want to give a prediction.
00:25:09
Do you want to give a prediction? Do you have a prediction? I do have a point.
00:25:12
Okay, All right.
00:25:13
I do have to make a public service announcement belong to all you bills fans out there.
00:25:17
Go into the game tomorrow.
00:25:19
Enjoy.
00:25:20
Have fun, Go through tables, have some fun.
00:25:22
Please be careful on the hatch and throwing competition that just broke the news.
00:25:25
I'm just like, Oh my God, why would you? It doesn't seem like that Adds up. Well said.
00:25:30
It's the disaster waiting to happen.
00:25:33
It's possible to go big or go home.
00:25:35
I've been able to get it.
00:25:36
If they are crazy, it's so fun to be there.
00:25:38
But for a prediction, I said.
00:25:40
You know, low scoring game Wolf offense got trouble throwing the ball.
00:25:43
I firmly league Maurin Buffalo's defense than Philly's defense on Lee because both alone has shown to be effective on all three levels of the game so far.
00:25:52
Phillies only got the pass rush.
00:25:53
If you could take that on the game.
00:25:55
Alan and Gore, wherever you want to throw into the mix, is gonna have a great game, but not enough to put up 28 35 points.
00:26:02
Now this is going to be a close 14 to 10.
00:26:05
Buffalo Bill's victory over the Hill on the equals.
00:26:08
Okay, so you're going really low scoring.
00:26:10
I'm not too, too far off.
00:26:12
I do have the bill scoring about 21 to 24 point, so I kind of settled on 23.
00:26:17
That was kind of That's what I'm landed on.
00:26:20
So I got 23 14 kind of an odd score.
00:26:23
But at the same time, I do think the Bills eventually get to the Eagles secondary.
00:26:27
And I do think that they, uh, you know, put up a couple touchdowns again.
00:26:30
But I I do feel like it's gonna be a lot of what you said.
00:26:32
Very defensive.
00:26:33
Very, um, you know, in the in the trenches type of game.
00:26:37
And and it's sometimes sloppy offensively from both teams, but mostly I think the Eagles.
00:26:42
So, um, but we both got the Bills winning so six and one first time getting six wins and, ah, this early in the season since six wins in the middle of season.
00:26:54
All the guys I can't remember.
00:26:55
Yeah, I'm Su 2015 or 2016.
00:26:58
I'm just gonna 20 No. 2017.
00:27:00
I think maybe this early, you know that it's it's strange.
00:27:04
It's been a while.
00:27:05
I would imagine I'm used to seeing them being under 500 by five games by now.
00:27:09
So this is kind of new adjustment.
00:27:10
I have to like, look up actual statistics, say fine.
00:27:13
It's like hard work.
00:27:14
It's like, Oh, my God, there's a lot of work that comes with winning Now It's fun.
00:27:18
Enjoy it.
00:27:19
Like I said, I mean, it's gonna be fun.
00:27:20
And I really do hope that you know when when Patriots and Bill's meat down this, you know, down the road towards the end of the season, uh, there's gonna be some playoff implications.
00:27:30
It may not be the division, but there's gonna be some playoff implications, at least for the Bills and where they stand.
00:27:35
So it wouldn't surprise me to see Buffalo not lose another game up into that point, even though when they faced only when there's a week 16 and believe it's gonna be, like both, so has the capabilities off.
00:27:50
I get that That's not awkward.
00:27:52
That's like saying, yet Josh Rosen committed with everything else.
00:27:55
It's just remember, it seems very unrealistic.
00:27:58
If you'll look at who their plane and you look at the office they're going up against and you see the defense that we're gonna have this entire season, it's not out of the picture.
00:28:07
You can't count anything out like you can't cannot nick Foles beating linguine and Super Bowl.
00:28:11
So thank you jabbing that knife in my back.
00:28:15
It's all right.
00:28:16
I get joy over watching the Eagles just kind of implode here.
00:28:20
So that's why I'm kind of room for the Bills in this one.
00:28:23
Like looks like I said, Like I said, I mean, the Bills could win 12 13 games this year and still finish a second in this division and that again.
00:28:33
That's kind of unlucky on their part.
00:28:35
But that shouldn't that shouldn't ah dissuade you from saying, Oh, the Bills are a great team and they could win on any given Sunday.
00:28:42
I mean, they're they're literally the only team to give the Patriots a game this season.
00:28:47
The only team and end like, Yeah, OK, you talked about the schedule.
00:28:50
But, you know, when you when you put up what what? The Patriots, especially their what they're doing defensively, You know, you have to go back as far as 1930 to find statistics that compare this to it.
00:29:00
So again, I don't want to hear about who they played.
00:29:02
It's like, Yeah, great.
00:29:04
A lot of these other teams have played these teams as well.
00:29:06
They're not beating them by 30 points, but guess what? The bills they lost by only six.
00:29:11
That tells you a lot so late again.
00:29:13
Late, the 4/4 too late fourth quarter.
00:29:15
You know, it's looking out the Bills defense gave the office not one, not two, but three different times to make it come back to tie the game and maybe even potential when and what you know they always down.
00:29:26
And, you know, I I look, that wasn't on the air. I would.
00:29:30
There's no record of me crying.
00:29:31
Five and one.
00:29:32
It's okay.
00:29:33
It's okay.
00:29:35
55 and one.
00:29:36
Soon to be six and one.
00:29:37
Yeah, I think I think you can live with it.
00:29:38
And I think you'll be happy tomorrow And, uh, you know, build up that confidence for that week 16 matchup.
00:29:44
