Rockpile Report - 163 - Camp Preview Part II: The Offense

July 16, 2019

Training Camp is less than 2 weeks away, Bills fans!

In this weeks podcast, we talk about our respective weekends & why one of us feels like a dunce while the other feels like an 80's hair band member.

Then, in the longest guest segment in show history, we host Locked On Bills podcaster & The Draft Network analyst Joe Marino to help us break down the offensive side of the roster, as it represents the biggest hurdle for the Bills in their bid to return to the postseason!

We discuss the various position groups, their makeup, the way we see battles for a spot on the final 53 shaping up & more - you won't want to miss it!

WE'RE SO CLOSE TO ACTUAL FOOTBALL, LADIES & GENTS!

This week, we open with a reminder about signing up for the Rockpile Report Fantasy Football league & a conversation about a wildly confusing sport people keep trying to foist on us. Drew also tries a new beer for the first time (spoiler alert: It does NOT go well).

Then we hold our first of 2 discussions on the makeup on the 90 man roster ahead of training camp, breaking down the defensive side of the ball. We outline what each position group looks like, the various skillsets being brought to the table & positional outlooks as we see them!

Rockpile Report - 161 - Stadium Debate

June 25, 2019
In this weeks show, we celebrate our 4th anniversary!
 
We open with a talk about our history, and discuss a contractual trend in the NFL that the Buffalo Bills would be keen to pay attention to.
 
Then we take a dive back into the "Buffalo Bills Stadium Debate" lagoon, outlining the significant hurdles Drew's research has brought to light & interviewing RamsTalk Podcast host Derek Ciapala for a conversation about how stadium talks unfolded between St Louis & the the Rams, and how it relates to our present situation.
 
We know the offseason is full of redundant nonsense, but you won't find that here #BillsMafia!

June 11, 2019

WELCOME BACK, BILLS FANS!

This week, we talk about how weird it is being away from podcasting. We also discuss the "NFL Hype Machine" & the rose colored glasses the media and almost every franchise, no matter how dysfunctional, has on this time of year.....including NFL Networks Michael Robinson.

We go on to detail our takeaways from OTA's & minicamp that we believe actually mean something, and we're joined in studio with Bills longsnapper Reid Ferguson to talk about new roster additions & their impact to the ST unit, his personal goals for 2019 & more!

May 24, 2019

This week's show opens with a heartfelt discussion about loss.

Drew gets angry over the nonsense around the reassignment of a HOF's jersey number, & we go on to discuss why resigning Jerry Hughes was a phenomenal move by the Bills front office.

We close the show with a discussion about OTA's & Mini-Camp - if you're a fan of the minutia of practices vs air & click-bait, here's your trigger warning.

Rockpile Report - 158 - AFC East Draft Recap with Travis Wingfield

May 7, 2019

Folks, our podcast has reached an annual crossroads.

We open the show with discussion on the Kentucky Derby, Video Review & the end of Drew's sanity.

Then, we talk about the impending changes coming to Bills tailgating & why DESPITE ALL THE OUTRAGE, this isn't worth the average fan getting their panties in a bunch.

Finally, we're joined by Locked on Dolphins host Travis Wingfield to close our annual draft series with a discussion on the draft haul brought in by the rest of the AFC East.

We know you'll miss us as we go to our bi-weekly format for the next 2 months, but you can always follow us @RockpileReport on Twitter!

Rockpile Report - 157 - Buffalo Bills Draft Recap with Nate Geary

May 2, 2019

It's all over but the crying, Bills fans - the 2019 NFL Draft is officially in the books!

 
WGR550 & Cover1.net's Nate Geary joins us as we recap our experiences during the 2019 NFL Draft. We talk winners, losers, confusing picks & whatever the hell is going on out in Oakland.
 
Then, we break down the Bills draft class, as there are some we view as homeruns, some we like, and some that Drew found genuinely enraging. Nate tries to talk him off a ledge, expand on the thought process behind our class, and we ultimately try to decide whether 2019's crop was a homerun, a single or something in between for the franchise!

Happy Dyngus Day, BillsMafia!

This week we take it easy by recapping our 2019 Draft Preview Series & what we've taken away from each analyst.

Then, we take one last stab at reading the tea-leaves by analyzing the Bills recent draft history for clues, patterns & some insight as to what type of players they might be targeting. Dean Kindig joins the show to provide his insight on some of the scouting patterns that the average fan may simply not be aware of, and we discuss the overarching idea that this team likes 3 things: Experience, Freak Athletic Traits & Face-time.

It's all over but the crying, Bills fans - in the words of Peter Venkman, crossing the streams at the end of Ghostbusters - "See ya on the other side"!

This is it folks - our FINAL DRAFT PREVIEW SHOW!

We open with a conversation about hand-washing & piracy, and try a new beer that literally makes you drawl, not drool.

Then, we give our immediate takes on the 2019 NFL Schedule - we touch on teams the league likes & seems to hate, the suddenly interesting Cleveland Browns, the AFC East & obviously the Bills. Get some oven mitts if you don't like hot takes.

Then, we host The Draft Network analyst Ben Solak to preview the 2019 Defensive Line class! He helps us parse through the picks most commonly mocked to Buffalo, the overall makeup of the class & more!
