Thad Lewis back at old stomping grounds

Posted by Chris Brown on April 9, 2014 – 12:09 pm

Bills QB Thad Lewis is back on campus at his alma mater today (Wednesday).

Lewis has been working out and training with his former college coaches at Duke most of the offseason where he played for the Blue Devils and head coach David Cutcliffe. He tweeted out a photo of himself with Cutcliffe and his former OC Scottie Montgomery.

The John Murphy Show had Cutcliffe on the show this past season to talk about Thad Lewis when he had him as a player at Duke.

Special Super Bowl Sunday for Wynn

Posted by johnmurphyshow on April 8, 2014 – 6:30 pm

The Bills new Defensive End has more than a Super Bowl ring on his finger to remember his appearance in the big game.

Jarius Wynn has a son who was born hours before Super Bowl XLV.

When he was a member of the Green Bay Packers, Wynn and his wife were having dinner in Dallas the night before the big game.

“That night, her water broke at a restaurant,” Wynn said Tuesday in an appearance on The John Murphy Show.  “I was like, are you OK? She wouldn’t tell me. And then we had to rush her to the hospital.”

Martavia Wynn game birth to a seven pound, four ounce baby boy early on the morning on February 6th, 2011 in Dallas.  Jarius says he barely had time to kiss his son before he had to rejoin the Packers at their game-day hotel.

“As soon as I left the hotel I went to meetings, everybody congratulated me,” Wynn said.  “They were saying it was a sign that we were going to win the game.”

His teammates were right.  The Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in that game.  Operating on about 90-minutes of sleep, Wynn played on special teams and got in for three defensive snaps in Super Bowl XLV.

Wynn said Packer fans wanted him to make his baby boy’s middle name “Super,” or “Super Bowl.”

“That’s what people in Green Bay wanted me to call him, but it’s just Jarius Wynn, Jr.”

Marrone: “Let coaches challenge everything”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on March 25, 2014 – 2:00 pm

The NFL has already slightly expanded the instant replay rule this week, by voting to use the league’s Officiating Command Center to consult with on-field officials during replay reviews.
If Buffalo Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone had his way, the replay rule would be expanded even more.
He things coaches should be able to challenge any call on the field.
“Whether you have two challenges, three challenges, to protect your team, put it upon the coach, so he has the right to challenge anything,” Marrone said Tuesday at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando.
“If he challenges it and loses, obviously he loses his challenge. If you feel it’s a play that is a game changing type play, he should have the ability to challenge that play just to get the call right.”
Marrone made the comments in an appearance on The John Murphy Show podcast from the NFL meetings. The entire interview will air tonight.
The New England Patriots have proposed a replay system that would allow coaches to challenge any official’s call, except on scoring plays. That proposal is not expected to get much traction this week at the meetings.

Marrone on board with two rules changes

Posted by johnmurphyshow on March 25, 2014 – 1:05 pm

There may not be a revolutionary revision of NFL playing rules this week at the owners meetings in Orlando, but there already are some changes.
After meeting Tuesday morning, NFL teams voted to adopt two rules changes.
One proposal extends protection of “roll-up blocks” from behind to include such blocks from the side.
The other change adopted allows the on-field official to be in contact with the Officiating Command Center in New York for every instant replay review.
Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone says as a former offensive lineman, and offensive line coach in the league, he is strongly in favor of the roll-up block rule.
“Being a former offensive lineman, from a player safety standpoint, obviously we don’t want that,” Marrone said, in an appearance on The John Murphy Show. “We don’t want people rolling up people or on the back of their legs.”
NFL teams also approved use of a limited centralized replay review system, with Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino and his staff consulting with the on-field officials during reviews.
The entire interview with Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone will be aired tonight on The John Murphy Show podcast.

John Elway on Kelly: “He represents toughness”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on March 24, 2014 – 3:55 pm

jms-elway-cp

The NFL’s top officials are gathered in Orlando this week for the owners meetings. But the recent health setback to Bills Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly is on the minds of many in the hallways and lobbies of the Ritz Carlton in Orlando.

Kelly’s had a long standing relationship with Hall of Fame QB John Elway. They were both part of the legendary QB draft of 1983 and have remained friends for decades.

Today at the owners meetings, Elway, the Denver Broncos General Manager and Executive Vice President of Football Operations, told us Kelly’s recent bout with cancer is tough for his friends to handle.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to Jim and his family,” Elway told The John Murphy Show in Orlando. “I know what a tough guy he is, he’s proven that in his years in the NFL. Obviously, the last couple of years he’s been struggling with some of the health issues. Our hearts and prayers go out to him and hopefully everything works out for him.”

Elway says Jim Kelly’s defining personality trait is his toughness, and that should serve him well in the weeks and months ahead.

“There’s no question,” said Elway. “He was a tough guy and I think when you think of Jim Kelly, that’s what he represents. Hopefully that toughness gets him through this next challenge that he has in front of him.”

The brief interview with Hall of Fame QB John Elway will be part of The John Murphy Show from the NFL Owners meetings in Orlando, tonight from 7-9pm on the flagship station of the Buffalo Bills, WGR Sportsradio 550.

Polian on franchise tag: “If it makes sense, use it”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 24, 2014 – 9:01 pm

One of the most astute General Managers in recent NFL history says he would have no problem, if he ran the Buffalo Bills, using the franchise tag for a second year on Safety Jairus Byrd.

Bill Polian there’s no stigma about re-tagging a player for a second year. He made the comments Monday night, in an appearance on The John Murphy Show.

“I think that’s perfectly OK,” Polian said. “If you’ve looked at your situation from a personnel standpoint and you looked at it from a cap standpoint and you looked at it from a cash standpoint and it makes sense, go ahead and do it. That’s what we bargained for in the collective bargaining agreement. It’s there to be used. There’s no prohibition against it. There ought not to be a stigma about it. That’s the way it is.”

Polian is a strong proponent of setting specific priorities for a team’s personnel when it comes to spending in free agency. And the value, he believes, is largely a factor of what position is involved.

“It depends entirely upon what your construct is—who are the critical people in your system offensively and defensively,” Polian told host John Murphy. “Unless the player is an absolute world beater—let’s just say Troy Polamalu, even if that wasn’t a critical position for you, you’d pay him because he’s a difference maker. I don’t necessarily put Byrd in that category.”

Prioritization is critical in setting a team salary structure, Polian says. He’s a six-time winner of the NFL’s Executive of the Year Award. Without setting a pecking order for paying different positions, he says team’s could eventually not be able to pay their most important players.

“You do have to put your resources against the people who make a difference in your system,” he says. “Otherwise, you don’t have the money when the young ones come along at those positions, or you’re able to get someone in free agency and you don’t have the money to sign him.”

Draft guru has confidence in EJ Manuel

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 22, 2014 – 1:30 pm

After fifty years dealing with NFL personnel, former Cowboys exec Gil Brandt knows how to evaluate players. And he believes Bills QB EJ Manuel is going to make it.

“Manuel is a guy that’s going to get it done,” Brandt said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. He was a guest on The John Murphy Show from the combine in Indianapolis.

Brandt says he made the decision to invite Manuel to New York for the first night of the draft last year, when others thought the QB would not be chosen in the first round.

Now a Senior Analyst for NFL.com, Brandt had this assessment of Manuel after his rookie season with the Bills:

“He probably doesn’t have as much ability as some people in this league. But he’s going to get it done because he works at it and he has a great relationship with players, which for a quarterback is important.”

Host John Murphy asked Brant where Manuel would stack up among the quarterbacks available in this year’s draft, a class that includes stars like Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater.

“I haven’t stacked this one up yet,” he answered. “But I still think he’d be a first round pick.”

Gil Brandt: “Schwartz first choice in the draft”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 22, 2014 – 12:30 pm

Gil Brandt has been around the NFL for more than fifty years and he’s a familiar figure again this year at the NFL Scouting Combine.

And Brandt absolutely loves the Bills hiring of former Lions Coach Jim Schwartz as their new Defensive Coordinator.

“I think they got the first choice in the draft, really,” Brandt says. He was a guest Friday night on The John Murphy Show at the combine.

“I think Schwartz is really, really good,” he said. “I don’t know what happened (to him) in Detroit. But in Jim Schwartz they got not only a wonderful person but a really good football coach.”

There’s been some speculation that the Bills might overhaul their defensive scheme next season as they transition from Mike Pettine’s defense to Schwartz”s. Not a problem, according to Brandt.

“I would think that Jim is going to try to do things that are best for players,” he told host John Murphy. “I don’t think he’s stuck on a system, I think he’s stuck on what can my players do best. I talked to him the other day and he’s really excited about it. A lot of times when guys get fired they go into a funk for awhile. He was just the opposite.”

Telesco says WR group at Combine is strong

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 22, 2014 – 11:30 am

Now in his second year as General Manager of the San Diego Chargers, and in his 20th year in the NFL, Western New York native Tom Telesco should feel comfortable around the NFL Scouting Combine.

And as he looks at the group of players assembled in Indianapolis, Telesco says one position group stands out.

“I’d say the receiver group is really strong, that’s probably one of the better groups,” Telesco said Friday night in an appearance on The John Murphy Show from the combine.

Overall, Telesco says the inclusion of more than 100-underclassmen in this year’s draft class means the pool of talent is as strong as it’s been in years.

“Even before any of the juniors declared, we thought the senior class was very strong,” he said. “We look at it more in terms of not just the first round, but the whole draft from top to bottom. You take a strong senior class and then an unusual amount of juniors declared this year. A lot of them are good players. It is a really strong draft”

For Telesco, a product of St. Francis High School in Athol Springs (N.Y.), having that much talent means there’s pressure to produce in the draft.

“You’ve got to find a player in every round, not just the first round, so we have some work to do,” he said.

Frank Reich groomed for SD Coordinator job

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 22, 2014 – 10:36 am

It’s another step up the coaching ladder for former Bills QB Frank Reich in his coaching career. And according to Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco, it’s a move years in the making.

Last month, Reich was named San Diego’s Offensive Coordinator, replacing Ken Whisenhunt, who left to coach the Titans. And Chargers GM Tom Telesco says he anticipated Reich’s move to the top offensive post for years.

“We knew with Ken Whisenhunt that if we had some success this year, there was a good chance he may move on for a head coaching job,” Telesco said Friday night on The John Murphy Show from the NFL Combine.

“We had Frank waiting in the wings and having him go through the process with Phillip (Rivers) and kinda grooming him for that Offensive Coordinator role. I’ve known Frank for years back when he was with Buffalo. He was a player in Carolina when I worked there and he was a coach in Indianapolis when I worked there. I’ve always thought Frank was a future coordinator at some point and now is his time” Telesco said.

Telesco watched Reich as a player 20-years ago, when Reich backed up Jim Kelly at the Bills quarterback position. Telesco, a Western New York native, was a training camp intern with the Bills at Fredonia.

Pepper started thinking about coaching in college

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 4, 2014 – 10:00 pm

He had a 13-year playing career in the NFL. Pepper Johnson won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants at linebacker, and he was a Pro Bowl performer two times.

Yet all the time, Johnson knew that he wanted to be a coach. The Bills new Defensive Line Coach says he started thinking about coaching when he was attending Ohio State University, but he thought about coaching at a much lower level.

“Pretty much when I was in college at Ohio State,” Johnson said, when asked when he was bitten by the coaching bug, “but I never expected it at this level. I wanted to coach at my high school.”

Johnson was a guest Tuesday night on The John Murphy Show. He said as he made his way through the NFL as a player, he made a point of talking to teammates and opponents about coaching points.

“I tried to pick the brains of everybody I respected as a player,” he said. “So I talked to Reggie White, I talked to Richard Dent, I talked to Seth Joyner, defensive guys. I talked to Cornelius Bennett for a linebacker point of view. I talked to receivers, defensive backs. If I could get some of that knowledge and give it to high school kids that still have that drive, I felt like I was going to be a great high school football coach.”

Instead, Johnson got to work with his former Coach, Bill Belichick, in training camp one summer. And Belichick saw to it that Johnson never left the team.

“I did a minority fellowship with Coach Belichick after I retired,” he told host John Murphy, “and I wanted to get some information on how to organize your staff and practice schedules. I think Coach Belichick knew if I got back involved with football, I was going to stay.”

Stay he did. Johnson just wrapped up a 14-year coaching stint with New England, before signing on to coach the Bills Defensive Line last week.

Bills new DL coach learned from Parcells

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 4, 2014 – 9:00 pm

The new Defensive Line Coach for the Buffalo Bills got his first taste of the NFL from one of the master motivators in the history of the game.

Pepper Johnson, named last Friday to the DL post with the Bills, was a 2nd round draft pick of the New York Giants in 1986. His first head coach–Bill Parcells.

In an appearance on The John Murphy Show Tuesday night, Pepper Johnson described his first ever team meeting with Parcells and the Giants in 1986.

“He told us all that he didn’t need any of us,” Johnson remembered. “That’s how he started it off. He said the New York Giants didn’t need any of these guys. They had made it to the playoffs–this is a train, a locomotive, and it’s steamrolling. His best advice to us was if you got enough speed and enough heart, then catch on to the caboose, because this train is moving.”

Johnson told host John Murphy Parcells first speech left a big impression on Giants rookies that year.

“You felt like any bad move you might get cut and left high and dry, and I started running,” he said.

Pepper Johnson has spent the last 14-years with the New England Patriots, as a Defensive Line and Linebacker coach. He was asked if Parcells hard-nosed, no-nonsense approach would work with today’s NFL players.

“No,” he answered. “With some guys maybe. Some guys believe in working hard until the day they drop. But some guys feel that a lot of opportunities– they deserve them, and they’re going to make it some form or fashion, whether it’s here or somewhere else, and not looking at it as a privilege, an honor to play in the NFL.”

Why Pepper left the Pats to come to Buffalo

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 4, 2014 – 8:00 pm

It’s a big move for Pepper Johnson. The Bills new Defensive Line Coach made the switch to Buffalo after 14-seasons on the coaching staff of their biggest rival-the New England Patriots.

In an appearance on The John Murphy Show Tuesday night, Johnson said he made the move to get out from under the shadow of Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick.

Johnson said he was comfortable in New England, and still pinching himself after a couple of days on the job in Orchard Park.

“My legs are still shaking a little bit,” he said. “But I’m excited, I’m so excited. I have always been a fan of Doug (Marrone) and the Buffalo Bills, and just getting the opportunity to spread my wings, and to get up from under the shadow of Coach Belichick. So it’s a good thing, a good opportunity.”

Johnson moved around the Patriots defensive coaching staff during his 14-years there, coaching both linebackers and defensive line. He spent the last two seasons working with New England’s linebackers, the position he played in the NFL. He told host John Murphy it’s all an effort to continue to grow as a coach.

“I’m growing,” Johnson said. “I’m a very ambitious person. I started off coaching and I moved around a little bit while I was there with New England, starting off with the linebackers,…then I graduated to coaching inside linebackers and took the linebackers over, and then eventually the defensive line. I went back to linebackers last year.”

Pepper Johnson does not hide his ambition to move up. And it’s been speculated in Boston that his move to Buffalo may be his attempt to set himself up for a defensive coordinator’s position in the NFL. Johnson says that would appeal to him.

“I would love to,” he said. “In a sense, those 13 years that I played in the NFL, I graduated to calling a lot of the defenses and having the responsibility of running our defense, and being an extension of the head coach on the sideline. It’s a dream of mine and a goal of mine, but right now, I have to deal with this defensive line.”

Teammate: Andre Reed changed WR

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 3, 2014 – 8:00 pm

Steve Tasker made his living on special teams, during his Wall of Fame career with the Buffalo Bills. But he also played wide receiver. And Tasker says teammate Andre Reed, elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, changed the way the receiver position was played during his career.

Tasker was a guest Monday night on The John Murphy Show, and he talked about Reed’s career and how he helped the WR position evolve.

“Nobody before him had the kind of career he had,” Tasker said. “He was the guy in that no huddle, in a league that was changing into more of what we see now, he was the slot guy.”

Tasker says Reed’s performance over the years opened eyes all over the league as to the potential production that could come out of the slot WR spot.

“He played Wes Welker’s spot ten years before Welker was in the league, and he made a living doing it,” Tasker told host John Murphy.

“He was different, at the time he played. His ability and the way he ran and the way he played was different from a lot of guys. The way he ran, his run after the catch was legendary.”

Tasker: “Manning is most significant QB of our era”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 3, 2014 – 7:00 pm

In the wreckage of Denver’s blowout loss in Super Bowl XLVIII, former Bills Special Teams Ace Steve Tasker says QB Peyton Manning’s legacy will not be damaged that much.

In an appearance Monday night on The John Murphy Show, Tasker said going into the game, he thought Manning had a chance to burnish his legacy with a strong performance in the game. But even with his poor performance, Tasker believes Manning’s legacy remains intact. In fact, the Bills Wall of Famer says Peyton Manning is the most significant quarterback of our time.

“He is the absolute most significant quarterback to have played the game in our lifetime and perhaps in the history of the game,” Tasker said on the radio show.

“He changed the paradigm by which quarterbacks are evaluated. He changed the expectations of every quarterback across the league from his point forward, on what is expected of them (quarterbacks) in terms of preparation, and what is expected of them to be able to do on the field, on the fly. It’s all because of Peyton Manning and his ability and his preparedness on the field, that other quarterbacks are expected to be able to change plays, call their own plays, work the no huddle, work the snap count, work personnel combinations, dictate matchups—all of that is expected of a top flight quarterback now. And it was not before Peyton Manning came into the league.”

Tasker had trouble watching SB48

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 3, 2014 – 6:00 pm

You would think twenty years after the Bills last appearance in the Super Bowl, the sting of losing four in a row would be gone for the players in that game.

You’d be wrong.

Former Bills Special Teams Ace Steve Tasker says it was tough to watch Denver’s collapse in Super Bowl VLVIII, because it reminded him of the Bills big game failures.

In an appearance on The John Murphy Show Monday night, Tasker said he had to leave the room when things got bad for the Broncos.

“I could not watch the whole game,” he said. “I watched most of it, but there were times when I had to leave the room, because I felt it. I could feel what those guys on the Broncos were going through. I had to walk out and take a deep breath, and then go do something else and then come back in.”

Tasker said the Broncos performance reminded him especially of the Bills 52-17 loss to the Cowboys in January 1993, when they turned it over nine times. Host John Murphy asked Tasker how the pain could be so visceral 21-years after the game.

“I still feel it,” he said. “I really, really felt uncomfortable watching it. When you’re playing against a team the way the Seahawks were playing, there’s no answer.”

Levy on Super Bowl-“You never forget being there”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on January 29, 2014 – 7:50 pm

It’s been 20-years since the Bills last appearance in the Super Bowl, January 30th, 1994, the 30-13 loss to the Cowboys in Atlanta.

But the coach who led the Bills to that game says the memory remains vivid.

Hall of Fame Coach Marv Levy was a guest on The John Murphy Show Wednesday night, and he reminisced about the Bills four year run to the big game.

“You never forget being there,” he said. “At the time when it happened, you say, are we really here? It’s exciting. It’s a culmination what you thought about when you were a little kid. There was no Super Bowl, by the way, when I was a kid, but you get the gist.”

The Bills suffered bitter disappointment by losing all four of their Super Bowls. And Levy told host John Murphy that after the first few losses, he and GM Bill Polian realized that all the minutiae they tried to control before the game had little impact on the outcome.

“After we lost the second or the third time,” Levy said, “we were riding back in the somber confines of the team bus to the hotel after the game. Bill turned to me and said, ‘ Marv, y’know, the only thing that really matters is what you do after kickoff.’”
