On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, the Buffalo Bills dominated the New York Jets in their season opener and Patrick Moran is joined by recurring guest Aaron Quinn from Cover 1 Buffalo podcast to discuss the good, bad and ugly of it all.
Aaron returns to the show for a second straight week and there’s plenty to discuss on the heels of Buffalo’s 27-17 victory over the Jets in a game that frankly wasn’t as close as the final score indicates.
The guys spending plenty of time discussing Josh Allen, who had a career-best passing game as well as 57 yards rushing and a touchdown but wasn’t without flaws. Aaron gives an honest assessment of his performance and why it’s time to learn to accept who he is as a quarterback and that today’s NFL is trending more towards guys like him.
They also discuss the instant impact Stefon Diggs provided to the offense not just for himself but also for his teammates John Brown and Cole Beasley as well as the semi-surprise of Cody Ford opening the season at right guard with Darryl Williams at right tackle.
The defense was solid and Patrick highlights two players in particular who had great season debuts— Mario Addison and one of Aaron’s favorite players, Trent Murphy. Murphy, who including last year’s playoff game has seven sacks over his last seven games as is playing well enough to keep second-round rookie A.J. Epenesa inactive.
Not all went perfect for Buffalo even in victory, however, and the guys talk about Allen’s two ugly turnovers and a missed opportunity for a third touchdown pass as well as the struggles of the running game and a brutal career debut for kicker Tyler Bass.
They wrap by discussing what they think they’ve learned about the team after one game, a look ahead to Miami next week and a peak around some of the more notable games around the NFL this past weekend.
