The Super Bowl is just days away and plenty of action going on down in Arizona. We started by hearing from Bills head coach Rex Ryan, who was in attendance on radio row. He joined Sirius NFL Radio and talked strongly about bringing a championship to Buffalo, winning with a strong offensive line, and how that could help quarterback EJ Manuel. Also having a vocal presence was Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. After days of silence, Lynch spoke up with some strong words for the media scrum surrounding him.
At the bottom of the first hour, we were joined by Buffalo News columnist and Pro Football Hall of Fame voter Vic Carucci. Carucci, representing Buffalo, discussed the chances of former Bills GM Bill Polian who is a finalist for this year’s induction in the new contributor category. Carucci broke down the voting process and shared his arguments for his presentation on why Polian should enter the Hall.
“He took teams that were either broken or starting from scratch and built them into contenders. He did this with three different teams. In the case of two of those teams, he built teams that went to multiple Super Bowls. He was the chief architect of those teams and I think that takes a rare skill to be able to fix tea to the degree that he did and bring something from the bottom up.
Bills Insider Chris Brown sat down earlier in the week with Bills defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. Thurman talked about his first encounter with Rex Ryan, the players on the Bills roster, and what his plans are for bettering an already solid defensive unit.
