Murphy Out at One Bills Live - Brown and Glab to Replace

Recommended Posts

I respect Murph because of his passion for the Bills, but his play-by-play leaves a lot to be desired. As I've said before, we used to turn the TV down and listen to Van Miller call the game (even listen to him at the stadium while watching), but I would never do that with Murph. He lacks any real talent for calling the big plays.

Chris Brown is awful. For anyone suffering from insomnia, listen to that dial tone for a few minutes. What a milquetoast clown.

Chris Brown is terrible.  Worse than John Murphy

 

 

The fact that there are people in here who are stanning for Chris Brown is mind boggling.  He rarely offers any insight and his takes are so boring and uninteresting.  He’s a less charismatic and entertaining version of John Murphy.

Chris Brown is OBD's public mouthpiece, and has been for years.  He says exactly what he's told to say, and does exactly what he's told to do.  He does not deviate from the script.  He is the perfect company man.

 

Now, that is not to say that he never says anything interesting.  When coaches want to send a message to a player, or there is something the organization wants publicly known but they can't have McBeane go right out and say it, Brown will be the vehicle to deliver the news.

 

All of that said, that makes him the perfect host of this show.  One Bills Live is basically the team's 3 hour propaganda extravaganza.

And you thought John Murphy was homer radio.

 

Chris Brown?

 

The guy who asks the most powderpuff, pillow fight questions after games.

 

I never listen to OBL because I don’t learn anything new, and with Chris Brown leading the show now I have even less interest in hearing him repeat the general platitudes and cliches that he has learned to repeat over the years from the all the Coaches he has outlived over the years.
 

Chris loves everyone, every Coach, every QB, every system. The Bills are always on the verge of winning according to Chris.

I love Murph. He has managed Tasker as well as possible (and that’s a tall order...and I give Tasker a significant amount of leeway for his contributions back in the day). 
 

The guy knows Bills history unbelievably well and can draw on it at will.

 

Glabb and Chris will not hold a candle, in my opinion.

None of them really bring any energy.... I wish they’d bring in a voice that has life behind it.


Sounds like you guys need Greg Papa to return to his Buffalo roots..

I thought Murphy was alright.  Tasker is brutal.

 

Brown I kind of like to listen to but Glab IMO is terrible.  Nothing personal against her, just something about the voice and cadence......whenever she was a guest on the John Murphy show it was always......"Alexa.....off"

 

Hopefully she'll improve in her new role.

I like Chris Brown.  Tasker can be hard to listen to; it just seems like speaking for long periods of time isn't his strong suit.  Glad will bring some youth.  Murphy seemed tired of the BS that came with some callers.

If I had my ‘druthers’, Murph would be out of the broadcast booth and keep the day job. But I’ve felt this way since the day he took over from Van.

Brown is good -probably the best locally. But he comes off as a know-it-all and looks like the last kid picked in pick up games.

 

I guess I’m in the minority all around as I like Maddie (y?)

I get that Murphy has his detractors and it's not that I think he is a great listen but I'll admit that there's something about this that makes me a little sad.  Murph is the classic old timer that you could picture as someone's Grandpa talking Bills football with at a family Christmas gathering or meeting at a bar.  He might come across a bit stubborn or pessimistic but he was definitely an old school Bills guy.  He's part of a dying breed.  Sports coverage has been changing dramatically over the last five years and it makes me sad knowing we will be going forward with the likes of Maddy Glab who isn't from Buffalo, doesn't know a thing about the Bills or football in general and makes you wonder why the hell she even has the job in the first place lol.  Chris Brown? Meh.  I like Sal and he knows his stuff and I enjoy listening to him but once again he doesn't have that old school feel that I was accustomed to listening to growing up.  It's crazy how fast times flying by and things are changing these days

They really can’t find anyone else to do this job?  Murphy, Tasker, Glab, Donald Jones a few years back....all seriously terrible. The WGR guys are all so much better

I predict the Bills fire her after this coming season

The other night, I watched the Fitzpatrick roast of Fred Jackson (yep... I am that deep into missing sports...), and Murphy introduced Fitz. I was actually blown away at how witty, and probably not-radio-friendly, some of Murph's quips were. He had me LOLing a few times, no doubt.

 

It makes me agree with many on here that maybe the three hour propaganda fest, and some of the callers who had next to nothing to say, were wearing on Murph. He may be a homer, but he kinda is paid to be, and you never doubted that he loved the Bills (compare him to Mike "I enjoy peering at pictures of Tom Brady by candlelight, while touching my nether regions" RODENT, covering us for ESPN...). I have to say thanks for the years of service.

Chris Brown is “the best locally?”  I feel there are a lot of good reporters who cover the Bills beat....he is not one of them.
