A shortened version of the show tonight, our last live show before we head into the weekend and Sunday’s game with the Vikings. The listeners chimed in with their thoughts on what they want to see from the team this week. We also heard from the players as we threw together another version of Around the Locker Room and the news of the day from the team and around the league.
Our guest tonight was defensive end Jerry Hughes who joined us in-studio. Hughes discussed his switch from outside linebacker to his current defensive end position and why he continues to have steady production. He gave his thoughts on last week’s game against the Patriots and then moved on to Sunday’s game against Minnesota. He talked about going up against Vikings tackle Matt Kalil and what he has seen from rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and how the defensive front can create pressure. Although Hughes is on pace for another season with double-digit sacks, he’s focused on getting wins first.
“We’re just trying to find ways to continue to win ball games and win our division. We really want to get a banner up in this building. An AFC East banner would be huge. That’s really our main focal point and our main goal is just find ways to continue to get better as the season goes on.”
Hughes gave praise to the defensive backs for sticking with their coverage to allow time for the defensive line to apply QB pressure. We finished our segment by asking Jerry about his favorite movies and what he has seen most recently.
We also heard from Hamburg High School head football coach, Pat Cauley who called in to discuss this week’s Intense Milk High School Rivalry of the week as Hamburg hosts cross-town rival Frontier, Friday night. To hear that and the rest of Thursday’s John Murphy Show, click below.
