Marcellus Wiley and Emmanuel Acho featured in today’s edition of Speak For Yourself. The topic of discussion was Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes’ role in the progress of their respective teams. Here’s what former Buffalo Bills defensive end Wiley had to say.

“Let’s just talk about how the players are playing better. Not necessarily in numbers, not talking about individual performances, collectively playing better.

“That’s what Tom Brady brings to this situation. Because let’s talk about the three years before Patrick Mahomes… He landed on third base and thought he hit a triple. But damn it this thing was already built,” Wiley said on the show.
