Isaiah McKenzie Show, S2 Ep6: Is this Isaiah's last dance?

The Bills veteran slot man is as candid as he's ever been on this show. Here's McKenzie on those drops, getting wide open and 2022 possibly being his final ride as a pro.

This has been an interesting season for Isaiah McKenzie.

To put it mildly.

Since our last episode, the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver has experienced highs and lows. He tore up the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day for 96 yards and a touchdown. He caught all five balls thrown his way in New England for 44 yards. Then, in Buffalo’s 20-12 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, he had a pair of drops that ignited the furor of a Bills fan or two.

McKenzie always keeps it real for listeners of “The Isaiah McKenzie Show” here at GoLongTD.com. That’s the goal: Give everyone a true inside look at the life of an NFL player.

On Episode 6 of Season 2, The Face of the Franchise is candid as ever. A few topics discussed…

  • The offense’s malaise. What’s up? Where did the juggernaut of yesteryear go?

  • Collecting wins, making no apologies. It’s much easier to work through an offensive funk when you work your way to No. 1 seed in the AFC. Miami hasn’t been so lucky through its funk.

  • McKenzie’s drops. The elements have been a problem for all of the Bills’ receivers. He breaks it down. He hears your criticism loud and clear.

  • McKenzie’s role. He’s honest. He says the film doesn’t lie. It’s pretty clear that McKenzie believes he’s getting open and would like to see the ball more in this offense. It should also be noted that we recorded the pod on Monday night, before the Bills brought back Cole Beasley.

  • Dolphins rematch. McKenzie cannot wait to welcome Miami to the cold… even if he’d still prefer to play in a dome. How can the Bills lean into their homefield advantage.

  • A WILD travel story. Remember McKenzie’s tweet about needing a ride from Pittsburgh to Buffalo? He supplies the full play-by-play detail.

  • Last Dance? And, yes, Isaiah McKenzie absolutely buries the lede on our show. While taking questions, he mentions the idea of retiring in passing and… what!? It’s true. McKenzie says he seriously will retire if the Bills win the Super Bowl. (He’ll also enjoy his first sip of alcohol at that point, too.)
