Yet another jam packed John Murphy Show for you all. Friday brings the last day of practice before Sunday’s game against the Chiefs at Ralph Wilson Stadium. We began the show with an update on both Sammy Watkins and Fred Jackson who are questionable with groin injuries. We also ran down the rest of the news from inside One Bills Drive and around the NFL.
Former Bills wide receiver Eric Moulds called in to talk about his return to Buffalo to Lead the Charge before this weekend’s game. Joining us in studio to talk to Moulds was his former teammate and Bills All-Pro guard Ruben Brown. They both talked about what it means to be a part of that pre-game introduction. Moulds also talked about his continued interest in basketball, his times playing with his teammates, and even the thought of playing professionally.
“I’m really good friends with Vince Carter and thought I could play at that level. He kind of boosted my head up a little bit. I was really thinking of doing it but after talking with the late great Mr. Wilson, I changed my mind really quick. He told me, it’s not going to happen!”
Moulds said he’s “more than convinced” that the Bills will make the playoffs this season. He then went on to talk about the current Bills team and the wide receiver group. He said he’s excited to watch Sammy Watkins play and see him grow into a great receiver.
Mark Kelso also returned, per usual on Friday to preview the upcoming game. He took a look at the Chiefs defense, especially their two defensive ends in Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. On offense, he eluded to Kansas City’s mistake-free play and their strong run game that features Jamaal Charles. Kelso admits it will be a tough game for the Bills and said if they lose the turnover battle, they “don’t have a prayer” of pulling out the win.
We also sat down with Bills VP of Operations and Guest Experience Andy Major who addressed the recent fan advisory board meeting and the on-going improvements to the game day experience for fans. We took listener questions via Twitter which dealt with an update on the in-stadium WiFi, drinking fountains, and the topic of more replays on the scoreboards above the tunnel end. Major did emphasis that if fans encounter a problem to continue to use the ELERTS system or contact a convenient usher nearby.
