The Bills turned the ball over four times in Los Angeles last week but that didn't stop them from dismantling the Rams. The guys talk big picture stuff with the revamped defensive line that paid immediate dividends, Dane Jackson looking the part at corner and Josh Allen picking up right where he left off last year. They also discuss a few small to intermediate concerns including Allen's work rate running the ball and their previously stated four turnovers. They spend time talking about a handful of teams around the league without trying to overreact from just one game, especially when it comes to the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals.

    On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, it's the first of what will be an 11-part series examining who are the best 10 Buffalo Bills players of all-time, position by position. Today's premiere in a series that will run through the start of Bills training camp runs down the ten best quarterbacks in Buffalo franchise history. These top 10 power rankings for quarterback and all positions to come are exclusively the opinions of TBP host Patrick Moran, who doesn't confer with media or poll fans for input. Several factors go into the ranking of these players positionally including productivity, longevity, personal accolades and overall team success. We wouldn't say there's anything “shocking” with this list of the top 10 quarterbacks in today's episode, but there's a handful certainly up for debate or at least their positioning, especially around the middle of the countdown. Input whether you love, hate or fall somewhere in between with these countdowns is welcomed. You can reach out with your own takes at the locations listed below. Here is a list of when upcoming episodes from this series drops. Also, the “Casual Friday” episodes featuring Joe Yerdon will also air each Friday with their normal format for those: Wednesday June 28th (Running Backs) Tuesday July 5th (Wide Receivers) Wednesday July 6th (Tight Ends) Monday July 11th (Offensive Line—Tackles and Interior are separate list on same show) Tuesday July 12th (Defensive Ends) Thursday July 14th (Defensive Tackles) Monday July 18th (Linebackers) Tuesday July 19th (Cornerbacks) Wednesday July 20th (Safeties) Thursday July 21st (Special Teams) ♦♦♦♦♦ Follow Patrick Moran/Talking Buffalo Podcast  Twitter:  @PatMoranTweets.

    It's Casual Friday on Talking Buffalo Podcast, which means Patrick Moran is joined by Noted Hockey author and Maintenance Day podcaster Joe Yerdon to discuss several topics, including wondering why BillsMafia and so many fans (and gambling sights) around the league are sleeping on the AFC defending champion Cincinnati Bengals, parallels between the Buffalo Bills and Colorado Avalanche, exploring what's the proper way to cover something significantly newsworthy like Kim Pegula's medical condition, and this week's “Starting Five” draft of Best All-Time NFL Quarterbacks. The Bengals, despite nearly winning the Super Bowl last year with a young and ascending nucleus not to mention adding greatly to their offensive line in the offseason is the only 11th biggest favorite win the Super Bowl this year and just sixth-best in the AFC. The guys want to know why and Patrick's downright confused by it. They also spend time talking journalistic integrity, the PGA Tour looking like they could be in trouble and tons more. Follow Joe on Twitter @JoeYerdon, and be sure to listen to Joe and Lance Lysowski's “Maintenance Day” podcast every Monday. ♦♦♦♦♦ Follow Patrick Moran/Talking Buffalo Podcast  Twitter:  @PatMoranTweets.

    On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran launches the first in what will be an occasional conversation with Buffalo Bills and/or Buffalo Sabres superfans. We really hit it out of the ballpark with this one as Tik Tok sensation and Bills fanatic “The Professor” Nick Harrison joins to talk Bills, Tik Tok, wrestling, positivity and much more. Nick started Tik Tok when the pandemic hit in 2020. Over time with videos, many focused on superbly re-enacted professional wrestler entrances, he's built up a cult-life following on the app that has grown over ONE MILLION followers. We talk about him starting on Tik Tok, dominating what's generally a young person's game, building up the channel and staying humbled throughout its success. Of course we also talk plenty of Bills, including how and why Nick became a fan of the team despite being born and raised in Louisiana more than a quarter-century ago, a love affair with the team that still resonates to this day. He also discusses having the opportunity to meet a nice chunk of BillsMafia last Thanksgiving in New Orleans, an experience that nearly leaves his speechless. They also discuss their mutual love for wrestling, what sets his wrestling Tik Toks apart from the others, involving his students with his videos, being a light of positivity, his goals for the future and much more. Awesome conversation with one of the coolest guests we've ever had on the podcast. If you're on Tik Tok and live under a rock, follow him at mrprofessor318 and you can also follow him on Twitter @MrProfessor318. ♦♦♦♦♦ Follow Patrick Moran/Talking Buffalo Podcast  Twitter:  @PatMoranTweets.
