CBS analyst Steve Beuerlein joined John Murphy and Donald Jones on WGR-550 AM on Thursday.
Beuerlein talked about Andy Dalton's struggles this year in Cincinnati, how Bill Lazor is attempting to help Dalton out with quick passes, the ramifications of a non-playoff year for Dalton with regard to his contract, the evolution of the Bills offense, and Geno Atkins' ability to disrupt the interior of the Bills' offensive line. Beuerlein finished with stories of his time at backup for the Dallas Cowboys, culminating in a Super Bowl win over the Bills in Pasadena.
Chris Brown set the table for today's show, giving an injury update, as well as information on the newest Bills signed. Brown also addressed again the time Marcell Dareus has spent on field, believing it to be more conditioning based than anything nefarious on the coaching staff, and new safety Shamarko Thomas' ability to help on special teams.
Linebacker Preston Brown also joined Murphy and Jones, and he talked about returning to his hometown, Cincinnati, as a Bill again, last year's 16-12 victory over the Bengals, rookie first round pick John Ross missing the upcoming game, Brown's parents' roles in his life, and the mindset of the team going into Cincinnati.
Donald Jones on Preston Brown: "I think being back in this 4-3 is helping (Brown) as well."
Steve Beuerlein: "I think it's a pivotal year for him ... his consistency has always been a question."
Steve Beuerlein: "We'll see if Buffalo can make the old Andy Dalton show up."
Ruben Brown on the changes within run game: "You know Sean McDermott likes versatile players, now they have versatile schemes."
Donald Jones: "Honestly you should just sit back and enjoy the games."
John Murphy, on hotel accommodations during the Super Bowl years: "I'm a simple man, Donald, I have low expectations."
