So...WHO WANTS TO TALK DK METCALF?!

This week, we kick the show off with a discussion on 03/25 & why it means so much to Drew.

We go on to talk about the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, and then segue into breaking down the 2019 NFL Draft's TE & WR Classes.

Brett Kollmann joins us to defend his opinion that DK Metcalf is WR1 - surprisingly we end up at the same conclusion as it pertains to the Bills! Then we break down some of the other names at the top of the class that Bills fans should start to familiarize themselves with!

Its NFL Combine week, everyone! (Insert Vomiting Noises here).

This week, we discuss Uber menu's  & the relevance of Bills mascots. Then, Paul Wanecski from Hashtag Sports joins us to discuss the RFA & ERFA players on the teams roster - it's surprising to see how much cheap talent we have on hand!
 
We also provide our annual discussion (bitch session?) on the NFL Combine, why why no one should put as much stock in it as the average football fan does, and we take the Wonderlic in an effort to prove who here is smarter!
