If you missed Wednesday’s John Murphy Show, there was a wide variety of topics. Starting with former Bills first round draft pick, Linebacker Shane Conlan who joined the show to discuss his career move back to football. Conlan is now the Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for the Arena Football League’s Pittsburgh Power.

“This gets you back into the game of football, which is fun. There’s 18 games which we play Friday and Saturday night. It’s fun to go out and sell the game of football.”

Conlan also reminisced about his playing days in Buffalo, including the 1987 draft, where he was chosen in the first round by the Bills.  He discusses his mini hold-out during that year and his departure for Los Angeles in 1993.

Bills special teams coach Danny Crossman came into the studio to talk about the new additions to his squad, including free agent signings Anthony Dixon and Corey Graham.

“He’s (Graham) got good length and good speed.  He has an unbelievable desire to get the ball.  He doesn’t think anyone can block him.  He’s doesn’t think anyone can handle him, he’s going to make the play.”

Crossman also says he’s trying to develop the players on the roster to get a better core group on special teams.

Finally, comedian Steve Rannazzisi calls in to talk Fantasy Football and the NFL. Rannazzisi plays Kevin on FX’s “The League” and is appearing at Helium Comedy club April 3-5. Rannazzisi says he has had countless encounters with strangers asking who they should start/play in their own leagues. He also is amazed with the acting work NFL stars bring when they make guest appearances on the show. Season 6 of “The League” premiers in the Fall of 2014.

The show also reaches out to the listeners.   If you were on the Bills Stadium Committee, what would be at the top of your list for stadium ideas for the Bills?
