Tasker: “It has to happen now” for EJ Manuel

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 27, 2015 – 11:34 pm

On location tonight from (716) Food and Sport for Friday night’s show with a large crowd in attendance. We began the show with the news of the day from One Bills Drive and around the league. We listened in on Thursday’s conference call with ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. who discussed this year’s running back and tight end class, scouting quarterbacks, and what possible mid-round QBs might be worth taking.pic

Former Bills special team’s ace and Wall of Fame member, now CBS NFL Football Analyst Steve Tasker joined us on location to talk about the team. He talked about his broadcasting career on CBS, now entering his 18th season with the network. He went on to discuss the current Bills team including the quarterback situation and the opportunity for EJ Manuel.

IMG_2005“This is a guy who is making himself ready even when Kyle Orton was the starter. This is a guy who felt like he was ready to step in if Kyle Orton got hurt but you have to prove it. It’s got to happen. Right now, he’s the only guy and if you need more motivation than that to put your best foot forward, you’re not the guy you are. We know he is. We don’t have to tell EJ this. He knows all of this.”

Tasker also talked about his former General Manager Bill Polian who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.

Bills cornerback Nickell Robey called in at the bottom of the first hour. Robey has been busy this offseason working towards earning his degree from USC and training with teammate Robert Woods. He discussed the changes to the team this offseason and the staff that remains, including his defensive back coach Donnie Henderson.

Nickell Robey“Coach Henderson is a very cool coach, especially when you get to know him as a person and you get to know his style. He’s more of a father figure in some cases. I know we’re all grown men in the NFL but he understands the life on an NFL player. He connects with us and we’re able to match wits with each other. He picks our brain and we pick his brain and it’s always business to get better and reach the ultimate goal.”

Finally, NFL Media Reporter Judy Battista called in to talk about this weekend’s NFL Competition Committee Meeting and their look into video replay and defensive pass interference. The penalty has been under heavy scrutiny, especially during the playoffs this past season. Battista weighed in on the potential changes, which include making the call a 15-yard penalty and applying video replay review. She spoke with the NFL’s VP for Football Operations Troy Vincent about that very issue.

“His point was that it’s a potentially huge play but pass interference is very much a judgment call. It’s happening very quickly and rather than make it reviewable, do you solve the problem of this is too big of a play and it’s in the officials’ hands late in the game and you really don’t want that. Do you solve the problem by, instead of having it a spot foul as it is now, you make it just a 15-yarder? That was the context where he raised that. I wouldn’t say that will be an imminent change like that.”

Battista also shared her thoughts on the Bills signing of guard Richie Incognito. To hear that and the rest of Friday’s John Murphy Show from 716 Food and Sport, click here.

The announcement was made late Friday with multiple reports also noting the signing.

The Bills hosted McCown for a visit prior to the NFL Combine and expressed interest in the 35-year old quarterback as well.

Fan Friday 2-27

Posted by Chris Brown on February 27, 2015 – 11:39 am

NFL free agency is just over a week away. The Bills are expected to be players. For now let’s get to this week’s edition of questions from you the Bills fans on email at AskChris@bills.nfl.net and on Twitter @ChrisBrownBills.

1 – Chris,

My question is- What veteran quarterbacks do you feel that could be available to help the Bills immediately? Definitely not Cutler, the Bills have already proven once you get under his skin he’s done competing!  Maybe Sanchez?  Do you think he can turn the corner in his leadership and playing ability?

Kevin E.
Colorado by way of Hamburg, NY

CB: Josh McCown is the obvious target right now. I think the Bills will see if any veteran quarterbacks that don’t have a future with their current clubs are released in salary cap moves prior to the start of the new league year before pouncing on another free agent target. Rest assured they are dead set on adding a veteran quarterback to their roster in some way.

 

2 – Chris,

Thanks again for the great coverage of our Bills, my question revolves around the defense going back to a 3-4. How do you see the front seven shaking out? Is Dareus the nose tackle or do we go with him and Kyle Williams at defensive end and add a big bodied space eater? I’m also curious about the linebackers, I’d think you’d put Alonso and Brown inside, Mario on one side and then I’m lost. If Hughes stays in the fold does he play the other side? Where does this leave Bradham who emerged as a solid player? I look forward to your input thanks again.

Will.
GO BILLS!

CB: With respect to the defensive line you have to remember that Ryan’s system is not a traditional 3-4 with a true nose tackle. They don’t have a true two gap, head up on the center nose. They play more of a shade alignment with two defensive tackles. I think Mario Williams will split time at defensive end and outside linebacker depending on the down and distance.

Manny Lawson will shift to strong side linebacker much like he did in Pettine’s defense two seasons ago. If Jerry Hughes is back he’ll presumably rotate in and out with Lawson and likely flip back and forth between and end and outside linebacker role.

As for the full-time linebackers I think it will be a feeling out process for the defensive staff. They have 2013 tape of Kiko Alonso in this defense, but they do not have any feel for Preston Brown in that system. They also don’t have the current version of Nigel Bradham in this defense aside from perhaps the last two games of 2013 when he began to show flashes of his true ability. So how they align those three will take shape through the course of the OTA practices.

The secondary obviously remains largely the same with the decision of free agent Da’Norris Searcy being the only possible departure.

 

3 – Chris,

Has Shane Carden from ECU been on anyone’s radar at OBD? I live in the Carolinas so we get more coverage about this guy. He’s playing in the senior bowl as well. He has reputation for being an accurate thrower (to me this should be the top consideration for a QB). Maybe a steal in the mid/late rounds. Thoughts from the insiders?

John

CB: Obviously the Bills scouting department is aware of Carden. He was a throwing quarterback at the NFL Combine last week. Carden set all kinds of records at East Carolina, but my concern lies with his throwing mechanics and arm strength. I don’t think he has the arm to cut passes through the wind that we often find here in Buffalo come November and December.

A lot of his passes float and hang in the air too long. He also has a propensity to throw off his back foot. There’s no debating his career was a very productive one. He broke all of David Garrard’s passing records at ECU, but I’ll be surprised if he’s taken before the seventh round. At best he’s a career backup in the league by most accounts.

 

4 - Hello Chris,

Thank you for all your hard work keeping those of us away from Buffalo updated on the best team in the NFL!

While I do not dismiss Rex Ryan’s abilities as a coach or motivator, my defining image of his tenure in New York was the newspaper cover image of a Jets clown car with coach Ryan at the wheel.  Traditionally the team has eschewed flamboyant personalities in the past.  Has the team discussed this with him, or can we expect the seemingly endless diatribe of controversy, arrogance and inanity that plagued the Jets?

James

CB: I think you can probably take his handling of his press conference with the NFL media at the NFL Combine as an example of what to expect. He sidestepped several opportunities to be bold with a prediction or two for the 2015 season. He also dodged loaded questions about his former team. So I’m anticipating a little more self-restraint from coach Ryan this year. We’ll see.

 

5 - Chris
It seems that with the restrictions in the NFLPA agreement, it is difficult to work with players except during certain dates in the offseason ?
If we had some interesting players, could a team rather than sign them to a contract, perhaps open a Football Training School with free tuition and room and board to develop their skills? Those popping out would be offered a contract etc. don’t use team coaches, rather qualified instructors with experience in positions we have a need.

Thanks
Jim in Florida

CB: Unfortunately I don’t see the NFLPA agreeing to that in any way. The players fought for time away from the game to reduce the pounding on their bodies through the offseason with limitations on padded practices and live hitting. They’re not going to agree to do that in a separate training academy. Most players do that on their own.

I suppose there could be street free agents interested in that kind of arrangement, but who is paying for it? NFL owners are not going to incur another cost to make that happen. I just think it’s unrealistic.

Report: Browns still in hunt for McCown

Posted by Chris Brown on February 27, 2015 – 9:47 am

While there are reports that the Bills are negotiating with the reps for free agent QB Josh McCown, apparently they’re not alone.

That according to the Associated Press, which is reporting that the Browns are also trying to strike a deal with the free agent signal caller. It’s believed that both clubs are offering McCown the opportunity to compete for the starting job at quarterback, so the difference maker will likely be money.

McCown was released by Tampa Bay earlier this month and visited both the Bills and Browns.

Fred talked to C.J.

Posted by Chris Brown on February 26, 2015 – 3:22 pm

CM6_9043
Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller have been the closest of teammates in the five seasons they’ve spent together. Whether that continues remains to be seen, but Jackson has kept in contact with Spiller throughout the offseason and just spoke with him Thursday.

“I talked to C.J. I talked to him earlier today,” said Jackson at his D-3 Nation initiative launch. “He definitely wants to be back in Buffalo. It’s just going to be about getting the job done and getting the numbers worked out. I know there are going to be other teams interested in him. He’s a tremendous athlete and a tremendous running back. We’d all be foolish to sit here and think other teams aren’t going to come after him.”

Spiller said earlier this week that he’d like to re-sign with the Bills, but there is clearly a gap in the thought process of what Buffalo and the Spiller camp believe is the right deal. Whether the two sides can bridge that gap is something that will have to materialize in the next week or so.

Kiko Alonso: “It’s a great time to be a Bill”-JMS

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 25, 2015 – 9:45 pm

We return to the airwaves for live radio on Wednesday. The free agency period kicks off 2-weeks from today, so we began the show asking the listeners their thoughts on what position group the Bills should target. There were plenty of responses to that topic from offensive line, to running back, to even quarterback.

Kiko AlonsoHe’s a player we haven’t heard from in a while. Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso checked in with us. Alonso missed all of last season with a torn ACL he suffered back in July. He has been rehabbing since and says he anticipates he will be “one-hundred percent before training camp.” Alonso talked about this past season’s defense with his absence and the linebackers that stepped up mentioning Preston Brown and Nigel Bradham’s emergence. He says he’s “stoked” to have Rex Ryan on board and is ready to get back on the field in preps for the 2015 season.

“I’m just trying to get back. It sucks to be on the sideline all year. It just gives me that much more drive to get back. At the same time, you have to be careful and not push too hard because the ACL is a long rehab. You have to find that balance.”

NFL writer at Sports Illustrated Chris Burke called in to the show. Burke recapped last week’s Combine by putting together his All-Combine Team which included Division III’s Ali Marpet from Hobart College. He went on to give his thoughts on the Bills hire of Rex Ryan, which he says puts the Bills “close to must-watch territory.”

Rex Ryan“I think Rex himself is close to that territory. He’s an energetic guy and his teams always play hard even this last year. That was not a very good roster at all in New York but up through the end of the season they were competing and going all-out. He’s a fiery guy and I think from that standpoint, they (The Bills) will be entertaining and it’s a team like we saw last year that’s not far away.”

Finally, Tony Villiotti from National Football Post joined us to discuss his recent article on What to Expect in Free Agency and why free agents are of modest importance in building a team. If they do pan out, the number of those players who have an impact is small. He also talked about the quarterback trends in the league and why the good QBs don’t normally end up in free agency and that teams should take the road of the draft to find their guy.

Buffalo Niagara Partnership Scramble Event

Posted by buffalobills.com on February 25, 2015 – 4:54 pm

If you are looking to network I highly recommend attending an upcoming “Scramble” Event. The Buffalo Niagara Partnership held the first one of the year on Tuesday, February 25,  which is designed to make networking easy.

Scramble 2

As I arrived at the event, I received my nametag which has three numbers on it. The first number on my nametag represented the first table I would be seated at with eight other professionals. We introduced ourselves and talked about what we liked most about our jobs.  One of the many reasons I love being a reporter is I am always able to learn about people and hear their story.  Next, we went to the table marked by the second number on my name tag, and discussed what’s unique about the company we work for.  The third table discussed professional advice.

It was such a pleasure to talk to other driven professionals in the Western New York community. I was able to learn about what others are working on, how and why they got into their line of work, what is the most unique aspect of their jobs, and so much more.

Scrabmle 3

Plus anytime I get to hang out with my co-workers its a good day. : )

Scramble 4

The Buffalo Bills are proud to be a presenting sponsor of the Scramble Networking Series.  This is the first of three events this year.   The Lunch Event will be Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens from 11:30 a.m. to  2:00 p.m.  The Cocktail Event will take place Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Report: McCown visiting Browns

Posted by Chris Brown on February 25, 2015 – 9:21 am

Free agent QB Josh McCown is meeting with yet another NFL club interested in his services.

According to an ESPN.com report, McCown is being hosted by the Cleveland Browns on a two-day visit. The visit began on Tuesday and will stretch through today (Wednesday). McCown has also met with the Bills and the Jets. Chicago has also expressed interest meeting with him at the NFL Combine, a team he played for just two seasons ago.

McCown is reportedly most interested in competing for a starting job, something that would seem likely in Buffalo, New York and Cleveland.

The veteran QB has been able to mull his options since he’s essentially the only viable free agent QB on the market right now with free agency not opening for quarterbacks with expiring contracts until March 7th, when NFL clubs can begin to contact and negotiate contracts with prospective free agent players.

It’s assumed that McCown will make a decision on what team he’d like to play for soon to begin negotiating a contract long before the other free agent QBs enter the pool of available talent.

Who Spiller likes from RB draft class

Posted by Chris Brown on February 24, 2015 – 3:16 pm

Tennessee Georgia Football
C.J. Spiller is mulling over his free agent options with two weeks until free agency opens. He’s aware that as a free agent he’s not only competing with fellow free agent running backs, there’s also a pretty good class of rookies coming into the league this spring.

Spiller appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio and mentioned one running back in particular that he’s followed closely and enjoys watching.

“There is a lot of young talent at the running back position that’s coming out in this year’s draft. I think this is probably the deepest that I’ve seen in a while, from guys that are explosive to the pounding guys,” said Spiller. “So I’m excited to see what they’re capable of doing. Some have had tremendous careers. The one who I stay in touch with and follow the most is Todd Gurley. I love the way he competes and runs the football. He’s fast and a big guy so I’m excited to see where he lands. I hope he lands where a veteran running back can take him under his wing and show him the ropes.”

Tons of praise for EJ from Spiller

Posted by Chris Brown on February 24, 2015 – 3:11 pm

EJ Manuel, C.J. Spiller
Among the items that C.J. Spiller had on his free agent checklist for a team was a great quarterback. Buffalo’s EJ Manuel is not that yet, but Spiller expressed a belief that the third-year quarterback will get there.

Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday, in addition to discussing his free agent options, which include a possible plan to return to Buffalo, Spiller said he believes EJ can be a winning quarterback in the league.

“I believe he will. The thing that I love about EJ the most is his character,” said Spiller. “He was put in a bad situation last year. He was 2-2 and got benched for Kyle Orton. But at the same time that really helped him learn about the quarterback position. He was a young guy and a couple of his receivers came out the same year with him. So I don’t know that he knew how to handle that.

“I think after he watched Kyle Orton orchestrate the offense and demand certain things from guys on the offensive side of the ball he kind of grasped that and took hold of it. Every day he came prepared. He competes at the highest level. He always believed in his ability. I think he’s going to be a great fit and a franchise quarterback that can get a team to the playoffs and have a chance to go and win a Super Bowl. I have nothing but high praises for him. I love the guy. He’s a competitor. I’ll go to bat for that guy any day.”

Spiller: I love me some Rex Ryan now

Posted by Chris Brown on February 24, 2015 – 3:08 pm


Bills impending free agent RB C.J. Spiller appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday and discussed his free agent options, leaving the door open for a return to Buffalo. Two factors that may work in Buffalo’s favor are their plans to run the ball a lot and their head coach.

“The Bills made a tremendous hire in Rex Ryan,” said Spiller. “Definitely I think Rex was the guy for the Buffalo Bills. I love me some Rex Ryan now.”

Spiller has a relationship with Ryan having crossed paths several times at Clemson, Spiller’s alma mater, where Ryan’s son is currently a wide receiver.

The Bills back also expressed an interest in offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s system, which will have a strong commitment to running the ball.

“I have been studying some of the 49ers and what they did. He’s a guy who loves to run the football and as a running back that’s what you want a guy that likes to run the ball, no matter what,” said Spiller of Roman. “I think too many times if a run gets stopped for a two-yard gain some offensive coordinators get away from that. But coach Roman sticks to his guns. He’s going to be physical. You’ve got to excited about that as a runner.”

At the top of Spiller’s checklist of things he wants in a team was being a fit in the offense.

Brinson: Combine Winners and Losers – JMS

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 23, 2015 – 9:32 pm

The show returns to the One Bills Drive after our week in Indianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine. To recap, we listened in today Monday’s Combine conference call with ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay. McShay weighed in on who he thinks might pull ahead in the race for the number 3-quarterback in the draft and the running backs that could be available in the middle rounds.

Bills defensive tackle Corbin Bryant joined the show at the bottom of the first hour. He talked about his second season on the Bills defensive line, the changeover with the coaching staff, and why he and his teammates are excited to “adapt” to a new defensive scheme. He then went on to discuss his involvement this offseason with the NFLPA Externship, where he’s working with Under Armour, in hopes of building experience for life after football.

Corbin Bryant“One thing I’ve learned in life is that you have to continue to learn. Football is not forever even though I love the game and I love playing on Sunday’s. I use the offseason to try and learn as much as I can about different fields so when that times comes, I’ll be ready.”

Circling back to the Combine, we brought in CBS Sports Senior NFL writer Will Brinson. Brinson’s recent article on the site took a look at the NFL Combine Winners and Losers. Brinson talked about the quarterback class with an interesting take on Jameis Winston’s on-field issues rather than his off-field red flags. He went on to say he was disappointed in what he saw from the running back group last week in Indianapolis but did say there’s plenty of talent to get a worthy pick in the later rounds.

“This is a group with some second, maybe late first if you really need a running back but probably second and third round talents where once again, we’re going to see teams that need running back help that are able to go in the draft instead of overpaying in free agency, pick up a young guy that they can plug and play that they picked up in the second or third round, which has become the sweet spot for running backs in the NFL these days.”

Report: TE Clay expected to re-sign with Miami

Posted by Chris Brown on February 23, 2015 – 10:41 am

Miami Dolphins impending free agent TE Charles Clay may not make it to the free agent market. That according to a Palm Beach Post report.

Per the report, which cites an anonymous source, Clay is expected to re-sign with the Dolphins rather than test the free agent market. Clay can serve as an in-line tight end, H-back and move tight end.

Clay is deemed by many NFL observers as a good fit for Greg Roman’s offense with the Bills. Buffalo however, may never get the opportunity to speak with the versatile tight end.
