On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, we continue a series examining the best 10 Buffalo Bills players of all-time, position by position. Today's episode runs down the ten best offensive linemen in team history with separate countdowns for tackles and interior linemen. These power rankings 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. Part of the fun with doing this series is the research and discovering things you previously hadn't thought of or known. In this particularly instance Patrick had no idea how heavily stacked the top of the interior line list was stacked. There were several difficult decisions to make on who makes the cut and where they land on the list with each position. Here is a list of when remaining episodes from this series will drop.

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.

Patrick goes into detail on his Saturday fun afternoon with friends, completely oblivious to what was going on just a few miles over and what his feelings were when he learned the severity of what happened. He goes through the victims and tries to honor them, speaking at length about a few specifically and just offering his raw thoughts and condolences to everyone involved. It's not your typical Talking Buffalo Podcast episode but one Patrick felt needed to be addressed, and one we all hope never happens again. ♦♦♦♦♦ 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 round of the release of the Buffalo Bills/NFL schedule and the madness that comes with it, the iconic life of Buffalo legend Bob Lainer, a dive into what Sabres prospect Arttu Ruotsalienen's future may hold, a Starting Five draft of Best Rock Frontmen and more. The NFL schedule is out and the guys have plenty of thoughts on it, including how crazy fans (and media) get over the buildup to the release with leaks, the Bills playing on Thanksgiving for a third time in four years and their preference to have all Sunday 1pm games, something that clearly isn't happening anytime soon. They also pay homage to Buffalo basketball icon Bob Lanier, who passed away at age 73 this week as well as discuss if Ruotsalienen is a player that will succeed with the Sabres if given more time or if he's just a really good AHL level player. They end with their weekly Starting Five draft, first reviewing Joe's shellacking of Patrick last week in the MCU Movies category before taking on the best leading rock band frontmen this week.
