Billieve: Sports psychology and the Bills

A look into the minds of players and fans

Psychotherapist and Editor-in-Chief Robyn Mundy joined Billieve to provide a glimpse into sports psychology and the minds of fans.

We started by discussing the difficulty fans have in being objective, and why fans don’t like it when players for whom they have high hopes are criticized. (Cough—Josh Allen—cough.)

Shifting to sports psychology, topics that are relevant to training camp were addressed, including why some players fail despite having the talent to be successful, intangibles required for the quarterback position, a potential diagnosis of what went wrong in the mind of former Bills QB Nathan Peterman, and how competition for roster spots affects relationships in the locker room.

Check out the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast for our thoughts on these topics and more, then leave your thoughts in the comments section.
