The Rockpile Report Podcast is back to weekly shows!

We open with a recounting of our off-season antics & knock some of the rust off while taste testing a beer everyone in Buffalo seems to be crazy about....for some reason......

Then, we talk about the CBS blackout situation, outlining the ways the NFL is involved & what a protracted blackout might do to football watching fans everywhere.

We close with a discussion about NFL Training Camp - we're not trying to be downers here, but realists. Everyone needs to take a deep breath and, in the words of Aaron Rogers, R-E-L-A-X.@RockpileReport - Twitter

THANK GOD BILLS FOOTBALL IS BACK! Not sure we'd make it another week without it.

We lead off the podcast with things Drew's noticed about the NFL now that he's got to watch other teams play, alone & without bias. That leads into a discussion about the return of Deonte Thompson, what it means for the Bills schematically, and an argument over whether Josh Allen should be back under center or not (spoiler alert, it doesn't matter because he will be) in 2018.

Then we review the list of people who's football lives are harder than Bills fans, talk about the obscure statistic Drew painstakingly researched on Doug Marrone, and host "Down By the Bank" podcaster JK Da Third for an in depth conversation about the Jaguars, their 2018 season thus far & what we can expect on Sunday!Rain or shine, you better be loud & proud out there on Sunday, Bills fans!

Folks...I need you to hear me out here.

This week Drew kicks the podcast off on his soapbox, as he talks about the state of the Bills fanbase & how we move forward. If you're looking for a Peterman rant, you might have to look elsewhere this week.

Then, we recap our Week 6 loss to the Houston Texans, talking about the positives we can take away from each side of the ball. Then we air a new segment which should help Bils fans feel better about this weeks result.

We close with a preview of what the Colts bring to the table, and what we'll be looking for if the Bills want to keep this game competitive.

It's not an easy road to walk...but like Shawshank Redemption, maybe you're all willing to go just a little bit farther with us? LETS GO BUFFALO!

This week we address a lot, including the fact that Drew wasn't the most riled up person about the Bills loss on Sunday.

We recap the game (skip it if you're not in the mood for a realistic take on our performance) including our opinions on the OL, Defense & game planning.

Then we host "The Lighting Round" podcast host & SB Nation writer Garrett Sisti to talk about our week 2 matchup against the LA Chargers and pinpoint where the Bills might have a shot at this thing.

Folks, opening Sunday is a little like Xmas for me in the sense that I'm at the stadium before dawn, I'll be surrounded by people I care about & it gives me a chance to reflect on just how lucky I am to have the life I do. Feel free to join me, just look for the CHARGEBFLO flag in the Mud Lot off 20A, right next to Lot 1.

Happy Halloween, Bills fans!

This week, we discuss Drew's recent experience with the "Vontae Davis Wing Challenge", and what we saw from the Bills (or didn't see) at the trade deadline.

We also recap our experience at Monday Night Football, talk about folks who are probably more depressed than Bills fans this week & where we stand at the 2nd quarter pole of the NFL season.

Finally, we talk about our upcoming matchup with the Chicago Bears while hosting Will DeWitt from DaBearsBros.com - stick with us & the team, Bills fans because while things haven't gone as planned the team has an undecided future and still needs us to show up on gameday loud & proud!

IT'S COACHING MUSICAL CHAIRS, BILLS FANS!

This week, we talk about Wild Card weekend & the start of what has become "coaching roulette".

We also discuss the difficulty Duke Williams (no, Chris, no THAT Duke) will face heading from the CFL to the NFL, and the questionnaire released by CAA Icon on behalf of the Buffalo Bills for ticket holders & fans alike.

Then, we go over why a true "AFC East Preview" is impossible with the coaching situation currently at hand - which changed drastically JUST AS WE WERE RECORDING - and outline what philosophies the Bills should use to fill their current vacancies!

This team isn't for the faint of heart, so feel free to jump off the bandwagon at anytime.

This week, we talk about all the people we got to meet this week, including those who are getting Drew head-first into rugby. You have no idea what you've done.

Then we talk about Vontae Davis & why it doesn't bother Drew compared to a longstanding history of Bills quitters.  We also recap Sunday's matchup vs the Chargers, and finally figure out what OC's are doing to completley foil our defense.

We close with what we're looking for improvement on in this Sundays game vs Minnesota - every game this season is going to present a new opportunity for this team to take steps towards their goal of building a consistent contender. We'll get to see what this staff and these players are made up, I'll tell ya that.

This weeks starts off on something of a serious note as Drew learned this week that, in the words of Cat Stevens - "It's a wild world".

We discuss trusting strangers, Drew's trip to Narnia in the middle of a football game (he can drink a small family under the table - booze doesn't do THAT to people), and break down the addition of 2 solid defensive players to the IR.

Then we recap NYJvBUF, making note of Josh Allen's growth & the ST gaffes that might have cost us dearly, fans we met who have it worse than us & close with a preview of Week 15 with Detroit Lions fan & Cover1.Net podcaster Russ Brown!

Happy Dyngus Day, BillsMafia!

This week we take it easy by recapping our 2019 Draft Preview Series & what we've taken away from each analyst.

Then, we take one last stab at reading the tea-leaves by analyzing the Bills recent draft history for clues, patterns & some insight as to what type of players they might be targeting. Dean Kindig joins the show to provide his insight on some of the scouting patterns that the average fan may simply not be aware of, and we discuss the overarching idea that this team likes 3 things: Experience, Freak Athletic Traits & Face-time.

It's all over but the crying, Bills fans - in the words of Peter Venkman, crossing the streams at the end of Ghostbusters - "See ya on the other side"!
