I'm Jeremy light at each year Sports Radio by PP for breaking sports news text or sports divide 5550. It's not always I mean she. Go go I think when we went and dug in and myself. You know talked to Terry today and you know Doug Selena and I mean. You know about this. Obviously they you know the the bills did their research when this young man came out as it we've you know when I was with the jets we've we've researched government. And all that and you know this isn't just the bad guys. Again it's a concern that everybody is gonna have had a guy made a mistake let's again whoever hasn't made a mistake and they can come talk to me so but again. What what we're building and the for confidence we have in our coach our locker room and the rest of the star players and the team captains will we felt confident again this guy's gonna walk and and he's gonna know what to expect things will fall in line and he thought he knows he's on the short week. Well I don't know we are gonna get better known physical. And I'm looking for anybody that make them better he happens and it got it they believe so. Home when he gets here you know he's got to Cleveland put us you know. We'll see how everything works out to know what I'm excited them. WGR. Sports Radio 550. Why. During a Baghdad Doug Whaley SoundBite and everybody's made a mistake right. Now again that's a concern that everywhere I have because they got me in the state it again. Whoever hasn't made a mistake and they can come off and it's OK I'm just gonna insert here. I've never. Punched a coworker in the face number nine yet you haven't. I've thought about it but I never actually bought my and there's glass between my mission today is to get you to punch me in the face he could understand the IK and partly. That you know the good. Guy that wailing in the act test yet. Look at in the and I'm I don't know we get distrust and racks on this at the Arthur says. When we get a lot of fun with this. I feel like it's it's it's not in on the on the scale on the scale are not the end of the world don't yeah. But I just. But what comes onto the bills I doubt I'm already it's the bills identity the death. What they are more than anything they are three things right now they are a team with a great defense with no quarterback and they'll take just about anyone yeah. As theirs you want to three. Yeah and I just to meet. I and I'm all for giving people a second chance. That's fine. Although this actually would be his third chance because he had an off field incident college as a freshman he punched an off duty police officer in any. Broke geno Smith's job selling off Dewey who hasn't who hasn't hit an off duty police officer right. Did you guys do. Matthew right and you get arrested at Rockport one time well duty police one in L it's a person and playing close and you get enough fight aids. In are you supposed to know I'm so that's the real thing Ferrari's fault and should be worth the people on the first employee calls for the person like those that secretly competition I think I wasn't. Bound sir I think he wants he was security was security at a restaurant OK he was at a price was in uniform and he was a security person at you posted on his account and was security maybe you shouldn't punch that guy or our strike should try not to fight circle back there is whether that's one of those things reflect I feel like that the technicality I'd done punched a guy but anyway why. I mean just enough already emir you know rich I. This isn't to meet. The Richie and got veto signing bothered me more than it does because this guy and am poly OK said two incidents. In Cagney go to his list is longer than my right arm which I extend out to the side of my body. So this isn't that bad but I just enough I mean what ever and I needle comes in and Hartman had incidents that well crow didn't have one well now I needed evidence it for a got here I don't. Calling out Jay Cutler to me is not. The same is allegedly punching me in the face and threatening to kill his entire family that is however that's the violation of the locker room I know at the locker room code to me well that's what it did a reason why would not have hired. Aaron Crow over but that's I know. That's the thing that's their code violation locker go to the thing is entirely black coat punching a guy in the face. Yes always calling out quarterback publicly and in all they they bring Brecht may bring back Romer who is done that clearly and that bringing in a guy who'll. Whatever do you remember I tweeted this yesterday and I wanna know if it was with you or when it happened Doug Whaley coming again when I say I was with us Scott slugger tweet or talk about Ray Rice or to let me to post draft. And the idea was is there anything a guy could do you would never if we just like too much right and I understand in that position for Whaley. It becomes an awkward thing to do because you don't wanna tie yourself to be complete. Blanket statement we would never sign someone who does this measure I was asked about yesterday and he didn't answer the question I I'd rather not get into a list of what. We consider it all. A violation of the right so it's a bit of a trap question I do I I understand that but Willie's answer was if he stole from a team. And in it he was. He was firm and confident saying if a player stole from a teammate with the Yankees player of extolled Jeter's long. And leave something error Sarah Rivera Ruben Rivera Rivera okay. So something like that if you steal money from a teammate. Then no way huge sari. That's in the NFL football world is about frost is Opel locker room yup yup so Whaley was firm on that he didn't want to answer blanket statement except he said that. In here you have and to me this is like this is a big big issue. Now Whaley will bring in a guy who punched a teammate obviously he's got some sort of locker room issue with geno Smith and maybe geno Smith this jerk I don't know that right maybe geno exacerbated and other stuff that may be he had the money might L did a appalled data may be exacerbated the situation right. So that's a factor. And then you also here yesterday Rex Ryan saying. You know Doug Willie's trusting me on this one. So for anyone who ever wondered. Who was making the decisions that doesn't mean that he's making all of them but this decision was Rex Ryan's. The coach says I want him. And he tells the GM trust me. And the GM says. Okay and kind of goes back against one of his own things which was. Locker room is the thing locker room is important. Now this guy might I make that team so I'm not all that worried about it he's a replacement of linebacker who had what three tackles last year. To get bent out of shape about it if you wanna get better shape maybe be upset that he doesn't play quarterback quite. In all seriousness the roster doesn't need to many tweaks outside of one major tweak. The polar couple things now bottle and Rex now Rex Ryan said he didn't even ask NM Polly about the incident. The new army drafted him he was there when the jets strap from last year so he's familiar with the player and he said he didn't ask him about the incident I would. I'd what happened honestly I'd I'd add the hold I think the culture in the locker room can be overstated. I'm not a huge believer in culture in the locker I think if you have winning players you'll be fine. You know a night for the umpteenth million gazillion time. They're used to be a team now called the bickering bills they want they they won. Games division. Playoff games. AFC championship while they they've they became. Friendly before they went all the the bickering bills right in 89 image classic came back he won in 1990 when the island that's suitable so I don't. I put a lot of stock in the locker and stop having so that. And other bills players and that's Raza were saying at whatever we we don't care like Fred Jackson out of care what he did a knock and ask about it when he gets here. The guy help us win that's what it's all about and all honestly. To me punching a teammate in the face in the locker room is a violation of a locker room cup. I don't get that you get into a scrum training camp yeah you're out on the field it's hot even practicing every day tempers are running short. Guys wrestled a little bit gravity each other look at. In the locker room for whatever reason you walk up to a guy whether he'd exacerbates it or not on cue doesn't on Chua knew. Punch him in the face and break his jaw. Can't believe that goes over well in a locker room like what happened to that amen anger in this room. We're here for each we cried for each other with their for each other we got each other's back until somebody punched the guy in the face and breaks his jaw I just don't know out that well. In a locker room by the way and dollars. You can have sex for the teammates mother and still be a teammate and now it's that's right though that doesn't break the violet that doesn't violate a lot going to apologize and Emerson right and and have him go to a strip joint when his friends. But anyway. Yeah I'd. It's not the be all and end all but it's just the concept of arm I'm off for second chances but it doesn't have to beat everybody you bring it. It feels like half the roster is in the second chance department it is that that's an exaggeration but it just feels like that that's what the bills or don't. And I just. Click on a story in the New York Daily News. And let me just get to the treatment each meta who we just that on recently is the jets beat reporter for the New York Daily News. Column two teams two cultures same end game how wrecks involved have taken different approaches to try and build. Oh winner. And it points out you know bulls is cleansing and unacceptable. Culture. Punctuated by an embarrassing the locker room fight. While his predecessor has taken a decidedly. Different approach. He writes. Ryan's old team might appear to be in disarray but it's plunder dome in Western New York where the bombastic unofficial mayor Orchard Park. Has assembled a Motley crew that would make Al Davis proud. Just win baby. At some point. Got to win football games but is it worth it to keep bringing in guys that have issues well. Sure to me it's on related. Lots of teams have guys who have issues the bills have had guys who have issues that's one of the things that's the most misplaced emotion to mis. Finally the bills are doing what it takes to go to the real teams do. Now knowing they've done this before they've had bad guys on the team lots teams have bad guys have been bad guys they've had good guys they don't win. Because you know. Who's the quarterback though you know I get that so like this idea that. How far is too far. The patriots were the current Albert came shortly stopped at a guy's face. I brought in Corey Dylan when he had questions for whatever they brought in Randy Moss they bring everybody. The patriots bring in anybody and everybody and they just skate on it because they win. I wouldn't bring in a guy who punched teammate in the face but stepped on somebody's face on purpose I don't like that he's ahead stop yeah I don't like that now. Corey Dylan what was Corey guidance again I'd I forget we forget because we don't even care. There's so many guys. It all make sure you kinda get numbed by it. Mike is. There's there isn't much that would come out in shock you yeah I mean breaking geno Smith's jaw was real. No kidding but it wasn't like all my it was more like you're kidding me it got punched him in the X would bring an ago punt team in the face to me that's not a guy I want in my room that's. How can that not be a violation of the locker room code you have their back. You don't punch him in the face. That luck and and neck and now this also gets the discussion of the sliding scale. You're gonna you're gonna look at a sixth round draft pick who might be. A third string linebacker made differently then. Albert Haynesworth who might be afraid to face defense of tackled he's got his head straight right. What they'll let us understand what the possible reward right. But it is the issue is the risk right wrist vs a sixth round guy who might make your roster might not make your roster he plays a much gonna play as he has special teams guy now. Well there's Hartman you might take a chance on Hartman could have a big role the offense look at what I'll give the guy shot and got meego. I understand their thinking hey guys he'd always got. A sheet a mile long we knew what he audio starting left guard and we need to guard badly so. I'm not naive enough to think that doesn't happen I get it I understand it and quite honestly. I would probably do the same thing now but I. At some point it's a case by case to me I would not have signed in cock meat on. I would of let Aaron Crow Margo. And I would not bring in this guy because he punched a teammate in the face. Well although you know what now right now I hear it like I said this is this is the slippery slope. Percy Hartman allegedly punched a teammate in the face just. Getty's actually voted the least the least popular the biggest locker room problem in the league might hear players in the league yeah. And easier sell it and ends up being racks believing Iraq's. And Fred Jackson even had a comment that was surprising saying that it shows Rex says his guys you know as their back and players like that which. Maybe that should be surprising but respect at present of those guys that a lot of people respect just about everything he says and with good reason. So you know when it comes to these issues of baggage Greg writes in the Seahawks win with lynch and his baggage that's right the bills couldn't handle his anymore majored in Seattle and he's the best running back and football. And they're fine. Because they went if you lose you have that guy you're a loser Adam and if you win and have that guy well what an. What is strange funny quirky guy he is he eats kettles all all all like. You just forget it all it comes out to risk vs reward. When the Patrick Kane's story came on and good friend of mine taxi means that. Who says this gonna hurt the NHL no one's gonna stop watching games the ratings are going to out where's the damage. And the truth is the damage comes in the form of talking about it. But is there really any damage that what could I K Adam Hall late possibly do to affect the bills and a negative way. The season. Punch how is Sadie Hawkins in the jaws Sammy misses eight to ten Rex. Put what are the chances that happens with a chance. Of today it's like lightning striking and I are asking for the happened twice. And he also punch somebody in New York that made the team better. So like. What are you worried about still he did punchy guitar on board revisits he punched Revis he probably might not like to be I wonder in all honesty. If the fact he punched geno Smith. Makes him less. Third rail like can't touch them again at laps at the affected she knows if he knocks out Revis I guarantee that the built Obama no chance. So like. It ends up being a funny story ends up sounding like where in the world rosling entertainment. And you know some guy just turned heel on the jets and rip open a certain saw bills Jersey and and bolt of the buffalo. How much do you think about elect is one quick side note I am this New York Daily News story about that finish better wrote. He wrote. About geno Smith. And he's writing about Rex Ryan and how he brought guys in to New York that had issues and he would always give guys a second chance that he believed he could keep everybody in line. And then he writes about geno Smith. Ryan gave most players the benefit of the doubt including Smith in the wake of his movie going escapade in San Diego last season he was late for meeting he said he was at a movie in. Awestruck time or something. Ryan believed in Smith despite all the quarterbacks flaws shortly after getting the bill's job he wondered out loud to friends whether the jets would be open to trading geno Smith the buffalo. A site throw that out theirs alone lists are more time. Rex Ryan after he got the job here and wondered out loud to friends whether or not the jets would be open to trading geno Smith to the bills. Stop missiles on the that this thing pass along there to throw out there are so. Maybe they would have cut Egypt had geno Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel anyway. Back to the original discussion. Gosh now I forgot the original one that's gonna make about an M well. Then it'll come back it'll come to you. It'll hit to right in the face. Act night that aren't the bill like someone smacked me there now 8030550. To join us if you wanna share your opinion on the signing of IK NM Polly. 888550. To 550 enemy decline for the life me I don't remember what the heck I was gonna say David Williams though you're on WG jogger right ahead. Morning guys love waking up keep QQ. Is it better than my cat. We'll take that is is complement. Okay you know I went to thinking I wonder if Rex Ryan has never had that same. Thing going on in his head and Donald Trump that almost any. Publish the ending media buzz. Is better than nothing so he he does these things maybe not even consciously just doesn't because. It gets his is name in the media. You don't need it I mean he's been that he's being getting plenty of media. It out yet but I'm but I but it but it and I'm just saying whether he made that move yesterday or not. He's still getting all the all the attention he's going to be that CES yeah it was in camp they talk to him. And it felt that was in camp they did an interview with him he's gonna be on HBO real sports at a on on an interview on that show next week so. He gets all the attention. The national media come to camp everybody talks to Rex Ryan's and he doesn't need to sign a just remember what I was gonna ask you about and Polly. Does he do it in part. To tweak the jets. Probably like he's having fun going. As a team that far you know it find you gonna cut back on gonna bring amend. And I don't know I don't mean like he knows that well he knows the playbook he's gonna tell us what Todd Bowles is doing defensively. Teams have done that they've brought guys in just take information from them on division rivals. Or does he do it just to get under the skin he likes bringing in former justice to get under the skin of the guys that are still in the organization there's. We got fire is he patrolling the jet yes sure. If this guy punches somewhat yeah right well I mean as you say he punches someone out on the titans he probably doesn't get picked up but it is on the titans and Rex Ryan doesn't know him like you would have known last year it. So the fact that he does know the player. That's the bit like the one thing that Ryan can say and people have to say well I mean if the coach liked player on this team because of the way he worked the way he paid in. Then can I be upset about that. I guess not hinted that the fact or. They're just they're been hilarious calls people calling in saying maybe he'd be the he's a true leader maybe this guy can make a difference in a playoff game might come in com. I often even make the field before the make the playoffs are still burst that gave it. Out of this guy playing on defense no peace here if he makes the team although I know. Now Rex Ryan yesterday said something about how. He compared him to Jerry Hughes but as an edge rusher but a more physical presence off the edge a power guy not necessarily speed guy. Willie's making comparisons James Harrison but if this guy if he makes the team. Special teams guy. And a peace plan on defense at all and that's another reason why you know is it worth it to bring the guy in and deal with the although. All the stuff in the fact that you know is it. I don't think it'll be a problem in the rumor why even have to go through all those issues will you know what if there is going to be some resentment with other guys on team bringing in somebody you punch at teammate in the face. Maybe I'm overstating what must that be a locker room violate the latest is that. Geno Smith told him he wasn't going to pay him. That Ryan Clark former sealer it says that geno Smith. Put his finger in his face and said you're not gonna do anything about it. It became about the fact geno wasn't necessarily apologetic and beat and being in a way remorseful about the money went saying he was going to pay I came back. And GO put this thing in his face and told the guy well your not gonna do anything about it. Wasn't the first time an issue over the same situation nothing came from the first time. The first and they get into an argument words are said disrespect from both ways both guys separate walk away. When he had that situation happened onetime sure a lot of people were warned expecting it to get where it's gone. So the idea was that. Geno Smith dairy guy do something about it and added he punched him in the face got cut and went to another team. There's a change for you of its geno Smith provoking him now aka. I think it matters. Walk the complex again effects well initially portrayed as a sucker punch that's not on my team yet he was an article on news. In all. Another guy and the team's got a debt to him got 600 box and yeah c'mon all this over 600 trucks which then and then what two minutes but if Smith is saying you're not gonna do anything about it many punches allied. A don't punch I just have a tough time getting too upset about I if you wanna make the point about the bills and what they've turned this this roster or into what it's a fair point. That maybe you don't like how all the team looks with all the signings of guys who have had no significant problems. I just think it'll all be defined by how they win. The last fifteen years have not been defined by a choir boys aren't going to require all boys route that cliche but they've been defined by lack of wins. Who cares. Like in all seriousness people don't care a lot of people do care when your team's losing when you are winning. College sports pro sports. Who cares. For the most part I don't as I said. One of my teams. I just don't see the need to bring in a guy who hit a teammate in the face it's just that's one of those at that I would look at and say. I don't like that it is not what's the reward. He's again again depth flying back right with apartment who did the same thing with apartment at least you can make a case if you try to reason and convince yourself. And have the voice on the left shoulder voice on the right shoulder debate to make case hey this guy may actually be an important part of the office. So maybe he'll look the other way. Within cut NATO. And Hartman. And maybe look the other way with chrome and say yeah but he's a really good offensive line coach and these guys need to be coached to critical aspect of the team this season can the line be better and this guy's gonna make them better she'll look the other way. And I just at some point. What are you keep bringing these guys in port and and this guy is not an impact player. Eight all 30 is certainly I mean nine I'm looking the other way were Daria strike street racing in marijuana possession I wouldn't Cottam 803055888. 550 to 550 will take your calls on the signing of IK and empowering. You can vote on our web pulled to a WGR 550 dot com. We get to practice from last night and the quarterback update. And whatever else is on your mind no Jeremy wants to spend a good three hours probably talking about the Tom Brady hearing from yesterday Acton. We have to get that exists artists there is so unlike other that's become the major story. The horse got chart we've reached before we've reached the stage of society once something does somebody does something terribly have to ask you goes on purpose.

So that's all coming up as we always tell you as they are shown at the bills and training camp and the pre season.
