Our return to One Bills Drive to recap Monday night’s dominant win over the Jets at Ford Field in Detroit. We began the show hearing from you, the fans and listeners who chimed in with their thoughts and opinions on the game. After the win, we went inside the locker room to shell out another edition of Around the Locker Room. We also recapped all the highlights with our Game Rewind courtesy of Murph’s play-by-play calls.
Bills Insider Chris Brown joined us at the top of the second hour to give his weekly assessment following the team’s latest game. He discussed the Bills offensive output against the Jets, which included successful trips inside the redzone led by quarterback Kyle Orton. Brown also weighed in with his thoughts on the Bills defensive performance, specifically when it came to the play of the Bills defensive line and Mario Williams.
“The one thing we underestimate, in both of the games against the Jets, once (Michael) Vick was in there, Mario Williams was on his blind side. That matchup was probably one of the worst mismatches you’re going to find in the league between a defensive end and an offensive tackle. He (Williams) owned (Breno) Giacomini in both games. There were a couple of plays where they matched him up with a tight end. I was dumbfounded by that adjustment by the Jets and the offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. He split both tight ends and then tossed Michael Vick like a rag doll for his second sack of the game. It was just an angry and dominant performance.”
Brown also talked about the unusual circumstances leading up to the game and the outstanding preparation led by head coach Doug Marrone.
Bills President Russ Brandon addressed the media this morning regarding the preparations for holding Sunday’s game against the Browns at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Brandon says the stadium is “one hundred percent operational.” There were great efforts made over the last few days, led by VP of Operations and Guest Experience Andy Major, who joined us in-studio to round out the show. Major talked about the cleanup process and the job done by the staff on hand including upwards of 500 people who were inside the stadium helping with the snow removal. Major added that the warmer temperatures aided in speeding up the process. He also discussed the ongoing efforts and the plan to have Ralph Wilson Stadium safe for those in attendance come Sunday.
