Rockpile Report - 169 - Roster Reactions & BUFvsNYJ Preview

September 3, 2019

In the immortal words of Rick James, "It's a celebration B****!"

We kick off this weeks show with our takeaways from the Bills roster cut down process, including a surprise goodbye, a lost wine cooler bet by each of us, depth on depth on depth & the 2 overarching takeaways we're left with when reviewing the makeup of the roster.

Then, we host Joe Caporoso of TurnOnTheJets.com as we preview our Week 1 match-up against the New York Jets. He helps us highlight some areas of both strength & weakness for Gang Green along with his concerns for them as they try to match up with the Bills.

It felt SOOOOO good to knock the rust off & have REAL football to talk about - we promise you Bills fans, the best is yet to come!

Rockpile Report - 168 - AFCE Roundup Chapter 3: MIA

August 27, 2019
This week, Drew apologizes (sort of).
 
We open with a recap what SHOULD be our starting lineups preseason finale vs the Detroit Lions, including analysis on our front 7's performance against an NFL starting QB (finally) & the night the bubble WRs gave us.
 
Then, we close our annual Preseason AFCE Roundup with Locked On Dolphins host Travis Wingfield. He walks us through the hire of Brian Flores, what it means to the future of the team, the state of the roster & more!
 
We close with Drew's takeaways from the 2019 preseason - regular season action is finally, mercifully, only a week away & win or lose it's going to be a hell of a ride!

Rockpile Report - 167 - Drew’s Had Enough

Rockpile Report - 167 - Drew’s Had Enough

August 21, 2019

This podcast starts like "Falling Down" starring Michael Douglas - Drew swears you all made him do this?

We also talk about this off-seasons injury trend, and the fact that some teams are choosing to avoid it altogether.

Then, we recap Drew's takeaways from our game in Carolina, including eating crow on RT (OG?) Cody Ford & RB production that makes him believe we've finally have embraced the idea of playing modern NFL offense!

We close the show with a list of what we're looking for come Friday night - this game is traditionally a "dress rehearsal" for your starters, and while there's things we want to see it's also interesting to see how the HC chooses to play it.

Come hang out with us for the season opener! Sept 8th @ Batavia Downs, Thurman Thomas's Tailgate party is going to be ON FIRE (not literally, unless the Bills lose to the Jets in which case Drew promises nothing...)

August 15, 2019

Right now, Drew is wondering if ANYTHING he predicts actually pans out!

This week, we recap our takeaways from Buffalo's win over Indy in the preseason, including Drew's takes on a DT & a pair of RB's he's been a fan of since jump street (sarcasm).

Then we open Chapter 2 of our "AFC East Round-Up" Preseason Series with the only Patriots fan we can stomach, Christian Simonelli! We discuss all of the on field & front office turnover that's gone on over in Bah-ston as well as dissect what their 2019 squad & fortunes might look like as a result.

We close with what we're looking for (or not looking for) on Friday from the Bills in their match-up against the Carolina Panthers!

We open with a recounting of our off-season antics & knock some of the rust off while taste testing a beer everyone in Buffalo seems to be crazy about....for some reason......

Then, we talk about the CBS blackout situation, outlining the ways the NFL is involved & what a protracted blackout might do to football watching fans everywhere.

We close with a discussion about NFL Training Camp - we're not trying to be downers here, but realists. Everyone needs to take a deep breath and, in the words of Aaron Rogers, R-E-L-A-X.

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

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

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!

Rockpile Report - 160 - OTA’s Revisited & LS Reid Ferguson In Studio

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!
