Former Buffalo Bills player and current CBS correspondent Steve Tasker joined John Murphy and Donald Jones on WGR-550 AM on Tuesday.
Tasker talked about the two questioned calls during the game — the deep pass that was challenged, and the Matt Ryan fumble as well as how well-disciplined the team is currently under Sean McDermott. The conversation then turned to a leaguewide focus on relying on instant replay to determine key plays, and the issues that could emerge from that thinking. The three then chatted about the importance of depth as it pertains to special teams, and how that gets tested with the current Bills injury situation. Finally, Tasker talked about the upcoming game against the Bengals, which he'll be covering for CBS on site.
ESPN host Trey Wingo talked with Murphy and Jones about the Bills' upset in Atlanta, the ill-fated decision by the Falcons to try a seven-step drop on 3rd and 1, overreactions to the first quarter of the season, what Wingo sees as sustainable for the rest of the season, and how similar the Bills are philosophy wise to the Kansas City Chiefs their first few years under Andy Reid. Wingo also talked about the evolution of the Chiefs' offense and how Alex Smith has returned to his spread offense roots to devastating effect.
Guard Richie Incognito also joined Murphy and Jones, and he talked about his day off regimen, how much is left in the season and what the offense needs to work on, how he spent his year out of the league, playing in a place like Miami versus Buffalo, his relationship with rookies Tre'Davious White, Zay Jones and Dion Dawkins, and how Sean McDermott pushes for players being themselves. Incognito concluded by talking about preparing for the Bengals and an amusing impersonation of John Murphy.
John Murphy on Richie Incognito: "One of the great reclamation projects I can ever recall in the NFL."
Steve Tasker: "They're smart, they're well-coached and they're well-disciplined. Teams like that get breaks. They earn them."
Steve Tasker: "Tre'Davious White is the real deal."
Richie Incognito: "You have to be a strong-minded individual to rise above those distractions. We have a unique opportunity to operate in Buffalo."
Trey Wingo: "Tyrod Taylor was ripping it man, he was ripping it on the move. If you're a Bills fan, that's what you want to see."
