On this episode of the Moran-Alytics Podcast, Patrick Moran gives Buffalo Bills fans a fond stroll down memory lane in landing a wide-ranging interview with popular former wide receiver Don Beebe.
Naturally, plenty of time is spent with Beebe talking about the golden era of Buffalo Bills football as the team went to four straight Super Bowls. Beebe shares his initial feelings about Jim Kelly, getting destroyed in his first professional practice by Nate Odomes, how he rose up the team’s depth chart and the personal devastation he felt after a broken ankle suffered against the Miami Dolphins in late 1990 forced him to be sidelined for Super Bowl XXV against the New York Giants.
Of course, Beebe’s most famous for tracking down defender Leon Lett and stripping the ball from him just as Lett was about to cross the goal line for a touchdown in Buffalo’s Super Bowl XXVII blowout 52-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Beebe talks about what that moment meant to him immediately as it happened, after the game when owner Ralph Wilson addressed him in the locker room and what it’s done for his life and career in the years that have followed.
Among other things a coach, motivational speaker and author, Beebe discusses his book titled “Six Rings From Nowhere” and what the inspiration was for doing it. You can purchase his book on his website at www.donbeebe.com.
The two also spend time talking about the current Bills roster, the draft process when Beebe was selected in third-round in 1989, the legendary Kelly post game parties at his house, his thoughts on the city of Buffalo and much more!
Immediately after that, Joe (@Buffalowins) joins for a “Run-In With Joe” segment. He and Moran discuss Beebe, why so many people think the Bills are going to be one of the league’s worst teams in 2018 and also talk a little WWE/Summerslam.
