NFL Season Preview

September 7, 2016

Our NFL season previews wrap up with the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers. Two teams who struggled mightily on defense last year.

Sal Capaccio from WGR 550 joins us to look at the Bills:

  • The difference in this team from year 1 to 2 of the Rex Ryan era
  • Is Tyrod Taylor the long term solution at QB for the Bills?
  • Should Bills fans feel optimistic that their defense can rekindle their dominance?
  • The two things that need to happen for the Bills to put an end to the longest playoff drought in sports

And we welcome back Matt Barrows from the Sacramento Bee to the program to talk Niners:

  • How have Colin Kaepernick's teammates reacted to his anthem statement?
  • Why did Chip Kelly decide to go with Blaine Gabbert over Kaepernick?
  • How can the Niners improve on their lackluster defense from 2015?
  • What are the realistic expectations for this team in 2016?

Plus, we'll look back at a crazy week 1 in college football.
