On the episode of the future award-winning Moran-Alytics Podcast, Patrick Moran is back in Buffalo and while there continues his “Wings With” series, this time hooking up with ESPN.com Buffalo Bills beat reporter Marcel Louis-Jacques for wings and a chat at Macy’s Place Pizzeria in Cheektowaga.

After devouring a combination of hot lemon pepper, hot honey mustard and cajun medium wings, the guys agree that Macy’s is one of the best spots in all of Western New York for wings.

After talking wings the guys jump into discussing Marcel adjusting to living in Buffalo and covering the Bills, including learning how to deal with his first-ever wintery cold weather experience recently. Marcel points out some differences and similarities on living in Buffalo compared to other cities, talks about how Bills fans have treated him since he started covering the team and the relationships he’s forming with colleagues in the media.

Of course they spend some time talking Bills football, including what he perceives the fan reaction and mind set following a one score loss last weekend at New England. They also discuss how high Josh Allen’s ceiling should be, why John Brown is now a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver, who he thinks should sit for the meaningless season finale this Sunday and how he far thinks the Bills can realistically go in the postseason.

They finish up by answering a few questions from Bills fans via Twitter.  You can follow Marcel on Twitter @Marcel_LJ and check out his work covering the Bills at espn.com

Special thanks to Macy’s Place Pizzeria for being a great host and allowing us the privilege of taping the podcast there.  Western New Yorkers, if you haven’t had wings there you’re doing self a huge disservice.  Change that immediately.

Merry Christmas!
