It's not always Simon you know fighters that he possesses every single accident you want from a running back. Being physical tests being great vision great body of playing great balance he has the ball. Where it says that he had a college wasn't a lot. Thought that's the good news for him.

About surprise you running back let's talk running out animus surprise you had a couple. OK I had a couple names Ford I mean on this product out what I did on your of his prized a cab got three things I want to bring up if you're running backs and you can bring up your surprise. We heard mark Sasser a moment ago Frank Gore is a free agent. Don't know the niners gonna bring him back 31 years old no thanks okay Chris Johnson. Now thanks didn't think he'd go for that one no thanks Goran not a not a shred of interest nope okay I see on Chris Johnson I'd. Have a little bit of interest and frank orbit that Chris Johnson. About drafting a running back in the second round it was brought up yesterday by Mike may hockey talked about examined conference call that the network. And he talked about how the bill to the Q for quarterback in round two. Not a great idea he brought up Brett Hundley brought up rice paddy. But any mention for different guys gone after running back around you mentioned four guys Amir a duel from Nebraska duke Johnson Miami of Florida Kevin Coleman Indiana. Boise State. What about drafting a running back in round two. This is I'm gonna surprise you okay. To demand the unleaded I hate like surprising yeah I hate the idea of drafting running backs early however. Is that gonna be one drafted in the first round it's possible there isn't that seems to be a rarity these days in the again draft so I think about a cup. Different guys for this you know you mention a few by. I don't know if I can get the best running back in the second round because they don't get drafted the first round and then. I might be adjusted net yet. When it comes to drafting running backs the reason I don't like to do it is is if you've got a great quarterback you disliked guys in right. The colts go measuring Jameson jewels of indicted James Mungro to whoever the patriots always just bounce around running backs the really good teams you don't need one. Right teams like the vikings and Ager Peterson of the quarterback and forever the Broncos are the poster child right or find a running back and your quarterback's good it doesn't matter where you're running back is that the bills. It is still team is gonna rely as they told us pretty heavily on the running back up boom we Dixon. And not not feature back Fred not love them yet but not not feature back. Bryce Brown right I don't think his feature back. I think about the bell I watched a lot of the Steelers this year you know expecting Spiller back no and I wouldn't. Not expecting stellar back now so I can find a guy that is not first round I'd probably would still a person for trumpet and running back. But a second round pick. Yet I can find day figure quotes here dances like the balls were all the a bell cow right that's the good source used the belly now back nice. I think I would be very interest in nine. I'm the guy that says you can get him anywhere most times you get a running back anywhere this team is Carolina in this guy. Heavily and I wouldn't be afraid of rookie if there's a guy that is the right fit the right. Meet a mix of speed and power like Levy on bell. If he's there. Let's do find that ominous stick the original concept of a not taken a running back I would not this would not be. TJ speller in the first round not afraid I still wouldn't be this would not be. It would not be on that level for me I would still stick with don't take a running back it with your first pick in this case not round one round to. Because I still believe. You can find a running back I think there are other needs. Tied and if they don't address that in free agency you can get a tight end. I don't know what they trapped the offensive linemen last year offensive guard. I'll pass rusher they don't resign Jerry Hughes I think there are enough other areas to go to that I would not get too renovated it's funny I think the best argument here. The the number one argument for using the pick on running back this year is not as much. Well it's very valid if your quarterback is it's the philosophy apparently is ground and pound so they want to really run the ball into the ground. They don't have that guy on the roster right now and I'll even throw in Spiller few besides which I don't think he will they don't have that guy on the roster and your best argument for drafting a running back is. This is a franchise that now is going to put all its mindset into running the football. Until they find a guy who can throw the football really well on a regular basis having set at all I still believe. You can find that guy and it doesn't have to be with your first selection in the draft. Tom writes in last year remembers correctly they'll strike policy almost thought I wanna bring that up as you know it's funny in how it if they took hide when it went high went off the board and that we found out they wanna cut but. I would have been cut I like callus on I I enjoyed watching play at Ohio State and I would not have been angry last year. If they took Carlos Hyde in the second round it's not so I'm kind of like why would you be I just would not do it this year I think you know whatever it is that is that tied and pass rusher. The offensive line still has to be fixed at least one guard spot. Perhaps right tackle. Who knows if Qantas panning out who knows that Richardson is panning out to me I just would not take that first election without a number one pick. And take my first election news about a running back because I can find that guy elsewhere in the draft. There are some names for this Melvin Gordon right he's good to Wisconsin yeah really be around. Todd Gurley is the geez just pray that he makes at that forum addressed he probably won't knows you're seeing mark dress at tiger early going amid for front runner on the with a bills. It actually would be the woman scorned Cleveland. I don't mean girl we will last. Melvin Gordon wells TG. Old and that's another one right we look at from Nebraska is a good running back a mirror of dual. You know get a hell of a career varies and indicated Indiana's good Coleman. He just put on a really bad football team and he didn't. He didn't get a lot of publicity they're. In dog and those are two of the four guys that Mac pointed out I think they'll be on number of good running backs available where the bills are gonna pick in the second round if they decide to go that direction. I just a just. Running back well I don't mean did the offense the running backs out there I just not as the pick there. However there are. Advantage to taking a running back what's the blast factor next to nothing and they're not that hard it's got it and if if they busted Cusick because their hurt him. You see a guy he's pretty good even CJ Spiller who the first part of his career with very early on looked like oh this guy's not really any good turns out he's pretty good given. An opportunity. I would be accident running back and just look at that it's not first round its second round I realize it is their first pixie don't like that yeah but this is where they are. Who's gonna put. Ask yourself this post touching the ball more than any other player on the offense next year is the guy on the team yet. Watkins. In a good season is gonna get how many touches all hundred. If week if things go really well a hundred. Projects like that could be an amazing season well right between passes and and around sunscreens and hmmm yeah I don't know how many times what happened like around or let's say it's a hundred touches okay. There's still going to be somebody on the team that probably gets in the neighborhood of 2100 point at least two and the quarterback club a lot of attempts but it. Who is gonna be tackled with the football more than anybody on the team it's probably. The starting running back. And is that guy on the team yet no I don't he has but the question is where where do you get him you have to get them high in the draft and at all the gap to get them. Higher in the draft and history will show this is not. Tom Brady means you can get a quarterback in around six I mean you can get running backs in undrafted free agent Eric Foster is undrafted free agent guys rights though can they find an undrafted free agent running back maybe. You brought up Melvin Gordon I just went real fast and that pipers most recent mock draft yet Melvin Gordon going in round one. The only first round running back as far as I can tell. In Packers last mock draft was Gorton seventeenth so middle of round one for him which that was meant. And if they did three round mock would have meant early with a stove and on the board going in the round to. I like him to like them allotted Georgia but I I just it's not one of those things dry I would demand the resignation of the general manager. I just would not for I prefer they don't use the second pick now second round selection on a running back. Watching a little bit of a dual it's awful lot of these guys in college. All these pilots of a miracle he's got tons of room to run I wanna see a guy break tackles were kind of vision does he have. And a lot of these highlights are big huge runs there's lots of room. Now chills could cut backs a dual. Idea stick. Penalty opens it'll look like I I can only go on what the coaching staff what Greg Roman. In rock Rex Ryan tell us which is that they're going to be ground and pound and the gonna pass vertically when the time is right which is something we've seen from Roman a mission and several times and watching the the niners the last couple years they do pass the ball plenty and they pass it vertically. Who is the guy that's gonna get most of the carries. Will there be definitely be a guy who's gonna get most of the cares wanna bring something up because of that committee yes first off. This and I'm gonna go on memory here which is a scary thing. Okay you have three guys here and by the way 8030550. Fallen drop when we always love to hear from which elects the bills take. Their first pick second round selection and use it on a running back that's when apple to voted that year but haven't they Dixon. Debra Jackson yeah Bryce Brown. Probably none of those three guys are a bell cow back to use your term twenty to 25 gears again. What do they awarded even just worthy of that problem commitment so what they did. You know I mean Ryan did a little bit in New York in some of the time he was there where he shared the carries in the back field. Was it was not this year but it was last it was Chris Ivory and bull all Powell I think I forget. So what they share of the carries amongst those three guys that didn't then is that necessarily say. Need a guy at work course guy 20/20 five we're gonna share the carries. Amongst these three guys. Could that be the approach they take the they would necessarily have to go out and draft a running back to and is there right now these guys can do it themselves but what was take friend Nick Price will take Anthony. Skis and movie and oldest you know share the carries that we'll have fresh guys come and into the ground and pound. I thought I wish to call. If Ryan said at some point. Not on the idea of when a guy gets a big Kerry and the and you know they take him out the previous coach who coaches to go take about. And I was like I don't know gonna stay without it forget Yvenson I don't I don't like him I think they could actually just take a three guys and say. We're gonna ground all three guys we're just gonna keep fresh guys in there. I don't know that either one of those anyone of those guys can carry it and the little by themselves but they could look at all three go what's gonna make it work all you gonna get your cares Brad. Nixon round home. Gotten them committee. Not I wouldn't endorse every team signaling back in the first or second or third round. At a tweet asking if they had a first round pick would you feel more comfortable taking one in the second death and can handle one of my needs in the first round yeah yeah Bose yeah I might be more. What might what are my options in the second round what leading up any it'll hurt a guard a guard tied and the answer back. You can never have enough defensive backs you can still be looking for pass rusher here's the other issue with this OK if you took a running back in round two. And the guy who treated in about round one maybe think about this not only did I have a first round pick. Also Donna a fourth round pick is who picks in the first four rounds of the NFL draft. In a 130. Times for. Through the math somebody. A 12830. Picturing struck thrown supplementary text your picks in the first 130 or so selections in the draft so that's why. With the limited amount of picks I have in the first four rounds and I think and one of musing on running back in just it's not something I wanna do. But I've got one other selection in the first four rounds for dress whatever else I need guard pass rusher defensive back tight end. Who knows that they wanted to grab another receiver I've no idea I just it's just limiting me and I just wouldn't do. I got to be kept with my picks this year let's light trading gets more picks quick text I asked. Who's going to be tackled the most with the football. And text writes in the quarterback if we don't draft a guard Ashton wanna one voice heard it's very well plate and it's. It's like that. Free agency they're a good point about you Jim Wright and they're always available in free agency and that's true you can always get replacement level running backs in free agency so maybe. In all I wonder. Because what last year there were known not taken the first front and it was the first time for the second time in three years that they've just drifted down abort the like goalies in the NHL. You never seen goal again taken number one in the NHL in the first round their release drifting down because you're seeing that. A lot of these players are. And if they're great. He's not taken one of the first round because you can get the replacements fairly easy you want to listen some of the free agent running backs mentioned gore Spiller we know about those guys you're barking from pornography Arco marina he's not coming here know Ryan Mathews Justin Forsett. Social Moreno. Chris Johnson Darren McFadden. Ball Powell. Jockeys Rogers Shane Vereen during the pick Steven Ridley. Couple New England Patriots on the market. Slow yeah I don't know and then you get down Leon Washington. Justin Forsett is their right. I'll be rainy. That big idea that guy from Tampa had like eighty something are now less than it and all against the bills yet conform to a thicket content at Augusta and does not run a power play my game that sounds like audit and it sounds right. Object. Dan Haren. So yeah I mean it's not like the American DeMarco Murray but I just. The limited picks could just as it's not something I would do it like two picks in the first for a while looked at the 2013 blocks and Bobby Rainey and his long for the season was an eighty yarder so it sounds like he might be the guy yeah that must have been Bobby. Yeah yeah that's got to be a while for that. That name ring a bell to me bring an end. These are restricted free agent now dress those guys were on restricted you can get them. You know it won't cost you a ton of money DeMarco Murray is the only guy on the market that cost a ton of money what smarter running back or quarterback with a second round. I would take quarterback. To gamble quit listening to Mike Mann act yesterday talk about the guys that would be there pummeling and patty. Because he's concerned about paddy you know being a pocket passer and being a operate in different system than that and Baylor. Some athletic ability both guys didn't seem really enamored with either guy. Tibet and overall sounds like it's just that the bad quarterback crop after you get past team is Winston markets area. I tend to really have a tough time accepting any quarterback scouting its sole often wrong. Really it's find any quarterback. Tom Brady it's been going Ronald viral video has come buying tape that was seen it yet it's terrible. They've they show ever play the sport his life and all the scouting reports about radio and about how does have the arm strength it is make plays and did you do did you see the special that ESP into with it was a 3030 or some other specially that about Brady went back the combo line. They showed his work out he looked terrible and he just looked clumsy and on athletic. And it they were they were playing back some comments from scouts and people back then it was there he was hand. At the compiler which is one of the reasons light dropped the six rout it was that did a feature about and they did a feature on some of the quarterbacks were taken and funny and draft that year. And where they ended up looking into doing like Jim Veronica Mars whatever the guy's name was from Hofstra. Which drafted by the 49ers before Tom Brady in the draft that yet he he was awful to come. And yeah I. But the comment to me as a whole different discussion I think people overreact to come by and all the time I really could care less what a guy does. Running in shorts and throwing to receive he's never thrown with but I'm into sounds like none of these guys. A worthwhile after you get through the first round quarterbacks but if you gave me that choice. I would take quarterback over running back and hope that somehow. I hit the lottery get my quarterback in the second round. Wide receiver no get. Thrown out and crazy. Just thrown out an idea. If I spent one the second round. Yeah if I spend two firsts and a second on receivers do you think were a team that is bringing in Josh McCown for visits. Then I'm gonna just what do you think they will ala and look at setting news bit newspapers on fire and I don't know what they look at free agency for wide receiver okay that's on yet upgrade from they trackers Hogan address the receivers. Woods was in the second round Graham was in the regular third round two firsts on Sammy yeah out right away. Now. This wide receiver they they all all the wide receiver or that he needed overall last year for. It went forth and before that Mike Williams was a sixth and its rate now. Not touching my receivers and lessons via free agency elected Paul Paul target but maybe I'm fixing that with tight end as a big target now I'm. I'm gonna be upset state receiver in the second or the David they get a guy who's cut a seller can there's a whole shelter receivers being made a salary cap I'm not saying I want nothing to do with. Helping the receiver corps if I can find a way to get better I just don't want us in the second round pick on it at all. 8030515. To join us 888550. To 550. We'll get to up Paul we get back what about the running back situation bills fans should the bills draft a running back. With their second round selection would today.

Yesterday we we touched on it very quickly the Yankees retiring eighty pad its number. Which one. Steroid user. To. Matthew. Men replacement level just above replaced I mean he's good. It was very it was very good we talk very good players hired number for the most is I mean amazing franchise in professional sports history science all these guys are very good but. I I hesitate just a little. Because we might be a little hypocritical on saying then you're ember those ninety's teams and overrated some of the players that were on great teams you. Like you know we kinda I just I don't know I can't envision Andy Pettitte among the greats of retired jurors I agree factory trivial point this out. We'll drive the point I'm sure I'm sure it. That Yankee fans can throw stones at bill's fans about an overall rating certain players who played during an answer I get it and all of these players rhetoric yankees are held to a higher level. But anyway let's get to their retired numbers posada. Bernie Williams and Willie Randolph also importantly ran Randolph I don't balls on it up that that instance I didn't realize he was going to he bullies is getting a plaque in my department got a retired number itself.

Yankees retiring his number hopefully they'll retire it like his HGH testimony. Staying home then her. He missed remembers that stuff all of them are mentioned in the Mitchell report yeah. And an able admitted to using each GH right petted right Pettitte admitted. He still going all the Yankee fan. He judges on the AT&T hotline rethink all edit. Retired Jersey. Think the Yankees didn't care anyway and that you know there. Are retired numbers I mean he was a good pitcher. But he doesn't deserve I was number tired orders from the other is your third or after you put up there. And we were Pollard talk about this and a break and I'm glad you said it because of I say it people accuse me just I hate the Yankees which I do. But and I just I look at the Yankees definitely it's like we I said for me it would be the Canadians okay. To the Canadians retire numbers of really really good players or they retire. You know generational league great players in Montreal there's a difference and when it comes to the Yankees and I just don't think you retire a good or really good player pure Yankee. A lot of teams. It accurate way it was a you know statues and retiring numbers and you know the whole nine yards I think. Both things are should be very special and now nowadays. It does seem like Herbert is getting statuary in the tired. Don't think it means this much is used to we were thinking of putting the statue of view in front of 500 corporate parkway just so you know it's. On the QT don't tell anybody I wasn't supposed to let you know it's kind of especially. That's the great care away from our. Old bash for this money savers and a Jersey tonight 730 game by Adelaide is on NBC SN TV lies that you wanted to sabres broadcast will be GR. Coverage begins at 630 pol before we talk about the game they did when asked about steep month it has yet to talk to players Jerry which is plants and sound. From Tyler Ennis. What what do you think about what what memories flashed into your head granny was only here for a couple of years book what flashed into your head we heard the news that month or passed away. Yeah there early five guys left that it played with him in buffalo two of them were injured so I talk to other three. Yes which would have been no matter Dallas Tyler Ennis and and Mike Webber. And full wherever and four and as they were just coming into the week when he was in buffalo and what they talked about was how much he taught them about the leap off the NHL how to be professional. Otto aren't prepared yourself harder to hold yourself out in public. All those types of things that they learned from him going go along the way and you know what he was on the ice he was serious and they spent in the dressing your room naked you know keep things loose and have a good attitude that Mike Weber talked about how he was always there are no matter what if you have a problem. It in hockey if you had a problem on a hockey forget a problem at home. How well whatever might be he was always there to talk to you always there to help you. The the as far as this game tonight your your article up by WGR 550 dot com wanna talk about that given our club about Patrick letter we were just discussing this in the break. And I mean Paul. You try not to get like through like emotionally connected the players they come they go we have to praise them we have to criticize them. And is sick I like Colette and if there's a guy he ever felt sorry for because she. Gives everything he can and to have to the sabres franchise and he just gets injured and he can't stay healthy and I don't know if he's gonna be here beyond the seasoning it. That's a guy you truly feel sorry for because the poor guy. Always fights his way back and then he gets hurt and now he's out what. What six weeks. Yeah he's in it they're curious four to six weeks. Some type it procedure that he had done lower body. And you'd did you feel bad because he's a great teammate he gives you everything he has on the ice you. You don't have to worry about the effort of a packed a lot of ways and when that. There's a hockey game going on but I just think injuries have taken their whole. I fear that this could be at present HL career because he's an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year. I have been here before the season even started that this was going to be his last year buffalo. And I think for that not to be I think he would have had to really command and ever cover good season a great season and just I think I think injuries have taken its toll on the way he complained to. As have suspensions. He's a little bit different that way now the army's perfectly willing to hit people is perfectly willing. To fight and and do anything necessary to world hockey game but. He's had to dial it back because of the suspensions and com. Are artists are this wonder what the future holds for packed a lot of as far as hockey goes in the in the National Hockey League. He is under contract for for I think one more year but they can supply wasn't always gotten like body wants. We always are restricted altogether and I like it's hard to envision him coming back and said is that it is because a few years ago I forget which season was ball. But done. You know he scored a handful of goals when these put them out there on the on the penalty kill he's got a little more regular ice time. Anyways contributing a wasn't just he runs around trying to suck guys in the penalties and get the odds suspension of the NHL he was really contributing as. As a good player on the team and and it just you just couldn't sustain it could they help. Yeah he scored ten goals one year and that's their perfect. I mean. If he scored eight I think that's. That's great for orchard ago fourth line player where is especially with what he brings to the table. But. He's he scored ten in that season and that was I believe five years ago and I think he's a tent portal since then. And a lot of it is because of injuries and he can't stay healthy and and he hasn't been able to play 82 games it's thirty here I think you'll wind up with 33. This year the inlet and lets you respect employees again. I near the end of march or early April so. Arts it's just a shame because he'd. He loves this team believes this team you'll do anything for this team because he's from buffalo. And there and he just loves the Buffalo Sabres probably more than anybody in that locker room just a shame that it's not all of this is happening for him. I agree boy don't we we were that's exact court talk about is that if anybody deserves it deserves a good team. It's a lot of in on that he say it's a function of the injuries he only had ten goals it's also function of the fact it is team scores eighty reflects. Armed Eagles they have to this point this season they're just such a you know for for a fourth light or heat yet that brief from a team that was great and since then it has been timing it's been really bad for him in terms of his career. It hasn't made me you know he can do it Matt Ellis thing. Per year to to get himself in his career back going again work the only sign knowing that your grounder Rochester. It and you live Matt Ellis he always starts in Rochester as their captain and he's gonna help the young guys and before season's over his Saber uniform every year. Again so maybe you know maybe he kitten that's how he could resurrect his career is doing it that way. On Hamilton is in New Jersey can be covering the sabres in the doubles tonight Paul thank you very much enjoy the game this evening sir. Think their guards are Paul Paul does on the AT&T hotline again at the 730 face off tonight and it is NBC essence of who wanna hear the sabres broadcast. Right here WGR. A pregame show begins at 630 following up and Andy Pettitte is this to meets interest we've got play Yankee fans wanna tell us how great he was he was. A great yankees sure which again it's not it's not going to hall fame it's the Yankees have decided to retire numbers though he can have to measured against that. His career post season ERA and looked it up three point eight. One report it right yeah in a great. In the LDS all right guys I was in the mail obvious his career post season ERA in the ALD yes. Three point 65 wicket in the world's in the ALCS 3.5 six in the World Series it's four point 06 he was on a good team right. He got tons of raw support. He gave up runs in you know how clutch argue your ERA in the ALCS has 3.5 six as clutch. It for me again it's not in this is not hatred of the Yankees this is measuring Andy Pettitte against. The franchise's history of guys who had their numbers retired that's a pretty. Big measuring stick I don't we got to get the break while I call that you know I just don't disregard the fact that he was on a really good team. Wins a lot of times it's pointed to wins for Pettit another team he doesn't get all those wins. You know he gave up beat a British Iran's uses. You know. Helps the goal it's a court Crawford.

What is it you can use like you go outside you take your life in danger and you walk out the more I read an article online yesterday that in and Erica tickets would be minus 100 goals and it hurts to greet. OK I would've thought that would have been like don't go outside your life is in danger Linus thoughts on its earliest but. But you wouldn't die enemy watch out that says it hurts to agree. Day after tomorrow minus one. That's evolves and for. Is that they're out of that noise though when he gets like minus fifteen like everything you step on crackles. The crunchy snow.
