On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran is joined by friend and recurring guest Anthony Marino to discuss several topics, including the team’s head scratching signing of former decorated wrestler Gabe Steveson and speculating if running back James Cook is capable of rushing for 1,500 yards.

Cook ran for 1,122 for Buffalo last year despite seemingly having a quick leash for a lot of the early part of the season. No Buffalo Bills running back has rushed for at least 1,500 yards since OJ Simpson all the way back in 1976. That said, maybe the accomplishment isn’t as far fetched as it seems. Cook pretty much established himself as one of the best backs in the league last year, finishing fourth in the NFL and rushing and running for 1,500 yards isn’t unprecedented in recent years. Five active backs have done a total of seven times over the past five years. The guys spend some time considering if Cook has the ability and opportunity to join that club in this 2024 Bills offense.

Also, the Bills signed former Olympic wrestler and WWE “superstar” Gabe Steveson last week. It’s interesting on several levels considering Stevenson has literally never played organized football in his life. There’s also former legal issues with Stevenson that makes the move a head scratcher if not straight-up controversial. The guys discuss.

That plus Emanuel Acho is on TV seeking attention at the expense of the Bills, Justin Jefferson is now incredibly rich, a new “Medal Stand” segment and much more. Be sure to follow Anthony on Twitter @AnthMarino
