On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has as chat with sports writer and recurring guest Joe Yerdon to discuss the Buffalo Bills undefeated 3-0 start, Jack Eichel trade chatter and much more.

The Bills dominated the Los Angeles Rams for two and a half quarters on Sunday before blowing a 25-point lead and needing a last minute touchdown to move to 3-0 on the season.  As he’s done in all three games this season, Josh Allen played at a league MVP level.  Patrick and Joe discuss Allen’s physical prowess but also his ability to stop the dominoes from all falling once he started unraveling in the second half.  They also discuss how Stefon Diggs’ presence continues to have a positive impact on the entire offense, Brian Daboll’s masterclass of play calling and Devin Singletary having a big-time statement game with rookie Zack Moss out.

They also discuss an ailing defense that has put together uncharacteristically mediocre performances.  Injuries were an excuse in Miami but not Sunday at home.  Joe has takes on his level of concern over it, including Tremaine Edmunds looking lost at times in the middle of the defense, the lack of a pass rush and examining how much slack the defense deserves because it was going against one of the league’s better offenses.

They also spend some time talking Buffalo Sabres, including reaction from a series of tweets from NHL insider Bob McKenzie centered around reported Jack Eichel trade chatter and McKenzie’s statement that Eichel doesn’t want out right now but is clearly frustrated over five years of losing.  Joe discusses what the Sabres can and need to do in order to help their captain and best player this season before things get to the point where he is actually does end up demanding a trade, including his take on the Eric Staal trade and what a rapidly approaching realistic offseason plan may look like.

Plus, is Joe team fall is elite or team summertime is the best? All that and much more during this fun conversation.
