A Tuesday night edition of The John Murphy Show. We’re just days away before we set up “camp” at St. John Fisher College. Our topic of discussion tonight, who is your training camp sleeper? Seantrel Henderson, Ty Powell, or how about Tight End Tony Moeaki? All three and some other names were mentioned throughout the night.
Our first guest at the bottom of the hour was Bob Trumpy. Trumpy was recently named the 2014 Pete Rozelle Award winner for his work in both television and radio covering the NFL for 30-years. He was part of NBC’s number one broadcast team as the color analyst beside Dick Enberg, involved in calling two Super Bowls featuring the Buffalo Bills. Although, one of his all-time favorite games to call was in 1988 when the Bills beat the Jets in overtime to clinch the division.
“The fans stormed the field, tore down the goal posts, and there was so much celebrating going on the field that there was a cloud produced over Rich Stadium.” Trumpy said. “Out of all the games I did, that’s one at the top of my list I’ll never forget.”
Trumpy will be recognized during the Enshrinement Ceremony during the Hall of Fame weekend in Canton, Ohio.
Continuing our Hall of Fame weekend preview, at the top of the hour we were joined by the VP of Communications for the Pro Football HOF, Joe Horrigan. The enshrinement weekend will be Buffalo themed with Andre Reed receiving his gold jacket and bronze bust. The Bills will be playing the Giants in the Hall of Fame Game the following night.
“There’s such a Buffalo flavor this year. I expect all the Bills Hall of Famers will be here, Thurman (Thomas), Bruce (Smith), Jim (Kelly), and Marv (Levy) who is presenting Andre. It’s just going to be a heavy, heavy dose of Buffalo.”

Finally, we switched gears to preview the upcoming Fantasy Football season. Jamey Eisenberg is the Fantasy Football host and contributor for CBSSports.com. He recently wrote about the fantasy outlook for the Buffalo Bills. He specifically mentioned to not sleep on running back C.J. Spiller.
Eisenberg also discussed how he would wait on rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins and that he would be great off the bench midseason. He also said that he could see Watkins soon dominating at the NFL level.
