Inching towards Sunday’s game in Oakland. We loaded tonight’s show with plenty of material to get you ready. We began with the news of the day, including an update on running back C.J. Spiller which was one of the topics in tonight’s edition of Around the Locker Room. We also heard from head coach Doug Marrone on the team’s offense.
Calling the game on the TV side of things is former NFL quarterback Chris Simms who will be alongside his broadcast partner Brian Anderson on the CBS Network. Simms is also the lead NFL analyst for Bleacher Report and joined us by phone to talk about this weekend’s matchup including what he sees from the Bills defense. He called the unit the “top defense in the NFL” and had high praise for the defensive line. Simms then switched gears to talk about the Raiders and their rookie linebacker Khalil Mack.
“In the run game, he’s unbelievable. He’s a total mismatch against tight ends. He throws them around like they’re rag dolls. He’s of course strong and powerful to hold up against offensive tackles as well. He’s a good pass rusher that’s only getting better as the season goes along. He’s truly a dominant force on that side of the ball.”
