Kelsey spent four and a half years working and living in Boise and discusses some of the similarities and differences with Western New York. In the spring of 2018 Kelsey took a job at WIVB and returned home. She talks about that process and how it wasn’t quite the easy decision most imagine it was. They also spend time talking about her job ritual and sleeping schedule that comes with being a morning anchor, working through challenging times during Covid-19, the significance of good relationships at the TV station, her stance on social media, why she loves Buffalo so much and a few of her favorite wing and pizza joints. They wrap with the traditional Fun Fact Finale and we learn plenty of fun facts about Kelsey, including her favorite city she’s visited, her worst habit, what game show she could dominate, her signature karaoke song and much more.

TBP 253: Good, Bad & Ugly — Bills Dominate The Jets

On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, the Buffalo Bills dominated the New York Jets in their season opener and Patrick Moran is joined by recurring guest Aaron Quinn from Cover 1 Buffalo podcast to discuss the good, bad and ugly of it all. Aaron returns to the show for a second straight week and there’s plenty to discuss on the heels of Buffalo’s 27-17 victory over the Jets in a game that frankly wasn’t as close as the final score indicates. The guys spending plenty of time discussing Josh Allen, who had a career-best passing game as well as 57 yards rushing and a touchdown but wasn’t without flaws. Aaron gives an honest assessment of his performance and why it’s time to learn to accept who he is as a quarterback and that today’s NFL is trending more towards guys like him. They also discuss the instant impact Stefon Diggs provided to the offense not just for himself but also for his teammates John Brown and Cole Beasley as well as the semi-surprise of Cody Ford opening the season at right guard with Darryl Williams at right tackle. The defense was solid and Patrick highlights two players in particular who had great season debuts— Mario Addison and one of Aaron’s favorite players, Trent Murphy. Murphy, who including last year’s playoff game has seven sacks over his last seven games as is playing well enough to keep second-round rookie A.J. Epenesa inactive. Not all went perfect for Buffalo even in victory, however, and the guys talk about Allen’s two ugly turnovers and a missed opportunity for a third touchdown pass as well as the struggles of the running game and a brutal career debut for kicker Tyler Bass. They wrap by discussing what they think they’ve learned about the team after one game, a look ahead to Miami next week and a peak around some of the more notable games around the NFL this past weekend.

TBP 248: Power Ranking Bills Drought Player Fits For 2020 Team

On today’s future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran partakes in an exercise of power ranking the top 15 former Buffalo Bills players from the drought era (2000-2016) that would be the best addition to the 2020 Buffalo Bills. After prefacing, repeatedly that this isn’t necessarily a list of the best and most talented players during the 17-year playoff drought to start this century, Patrick counts down from 15 to the top spot of his list, with an emphasis on positions he considers bigger needs or at least spots that could use an upgrade. Making the list is one tight end, one running back, one receiver, three offensive linemen, three defensive linemen, four cornerbacks and two quarterbacks. Some of the names and who’s placed where may shock you. This is Patrick’s first solo episode in quite a while. Don’t get used to it though—next week is “Sal Week” on the podcast, with Sal Maiorana coming up next Tuesday and Sal Capaccio for a milestone 250th episode next Friday.
