Rockpile Report - 179 - Offensive Confusion, AFC Playoff Picture & Dolphins Preview w/Travis Wingfield

November 13, 2019

Drew isn't being a negative ass, this week guys - he just wants to talk.

This week, we talk about fast food & Drew wonders what he might have missed thus far in his life.

Then we break down our takeaways from Sunday's loss to Cleveland - we dissect our situation regarding stoud defense, our star CB shining brightly & how analyst on analyst crime on social media could be indicative of a much larger, more frightening problem for the Buffalo Bills offense.

We close the show with our first installment of our "AFC Playoff Picture" segment of 2019, setting the table for our future conversations regarding our post-season hopes & host Travis Wingfield of Locked On Dolphins for a look at "Round 2" between Buffalo & Miami!

This 2019 Bills are breaking records!
 
In our recap of Sunday's action vs Washington, we talk about the most efficient day the Bills have had in recent history, the performance of our front 7 a week after their worst performance of the year & the player that single-handedly paced the action on the offense. We also have a discussion about the specific struggles of Brian Daboll, and where this offense can still improve.
 
We also recap a week of AFC East action, outlining how hilarious the outcome of NYJvsMIA was, and host Ohio's WKRK 92.3 "The Fan" personality & former Bills blogger Spencer German to preview our matchup with the Mistake On the Lake in Cleveland! Batten down the hatches, Bills fans - this matchup is always an ugly one!

Rockpile Report - 173 - NYUp’s Matt Parrino Returns

October 2, 2019

Contrary to popular belief the season isn't over. But dammit if Drew isn't feeling the effects of the Bills first loss of the season.

In order to cope, we bring back "Guest of The Year" candidate Matt Parrino of NYUp.com to discuss what was ultimately a hard fought loss to the New England Patriots @ New Era Field. We touch on the state of the offense & our concern over the OL, the otherworldly performance of the D & Tremaine Edmunds, as well as touch on stats showing that the Patriots are constantly given a cushion by the officiating - the helmet hit was just a microcosm of the bigger picture in that aspect.

We also provide this seasons first installment of "People Who Have it Worse then Bills Fans" & go on to preview what is ultimately a pivotal matchup against the Tennessee Titans in terms of where this team wants to be in the hierarchy of the AFC standings.

This one isn't going to be easy, but after last week we have to believe it's there for the taking if they truly want to be a playoff contender!
