It has been a big week for Buffalo Bills news and Jamie D & Big Newt get you caught up.

The release of player scores on video game Madden NFL 22 has been ongoing, and the release of quarterback ratings became a trending topic when Josh Allen was ranked by the game as the eighth-best quarterback with a score of 88. Big Chris Newton is steamed. The question addressed is whether this is disrespect by EA Sports or if there’s a reason other players, including the Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, is ranked above Allen.

The topic of disrespect is carried over to the information that has been leaked about negotiations between New York State and Terry and Kim Pegula. While the reported ask of over $1 billion by the Pegulas is nothing more than a negotiation tactic, can it be seen as a sign of disrespect to the fans and the state? What about New York state leaking the information to the press from a closed door meeting? Is that disrespectful?

The focus then moves to the football field and the first week of training camp. The hosts discuss how practice becomes different once pads are being worn by players, allowing the best performers to rise to the top. They also discuss what sort of impact the reported fight between DT Ed Oliver and rookie T Spencer Brown can have on the individual players and the team.

All of that and more are inside, so hit the play button now!
