The good thing about the police say I'm home you know and I noticed my room and you were playing well. And they let you know it's known as Tom played well a lot of mountains. In America is a boom blows or they're gradually need not look a lot of respect and love to see that it was playing so. Still trying to back LeSean McCoy and WIP radio in Philadelphia. Big story court well. Let's what's the bigger story there this week with Shawn McCoy is coming back to Philadelphia and whether or not he'll shake hands and Chip Kelly before the game. Or the Eagles are in a three way tie for first place in the NFC east. At five and seven. With a bigger story. His if you go online. Loop LeSean McCoy is all over the Philadelphia newspapers amidst. There's multiple stories about him Shea no longer angry at the birds a meter final budget LeSean McCoy stories. And that is such a big story the homecoming or two to talk about what this week the Eagles were in first. LeSean McCoy is back in house Chip Kelly done and what about getting rid of all the guys got rid of and has that. And what you know has that worked out has not worked out what they're doing my guess is it's about first. And and they lose this week it's all about McCoy. Because what percentage Eagles fans would have seen what he's been doing. But in watching a lot of bills probably very I would think that that the Sunday ticket and after the Sunday ticket and want to watch bills football right which you probably has been a fan you provident atomic. And I. So you haven't tuned in a lot of Eagles did she Kiko Alonso play I am not have only seen highlights and read articles about how he's really doing here. He has I do get to the bills I have a question about the bills action to bring up also wanna remind you that today is Wednesday so it is hokey home today. I'll wait until at least to six dollars and fifty cents that is all day today at Jim's steak out hokey hope so. Jeff Reed should the high nfl.com. Buffalo bills' Big Three. Must elevate game to realize playoff goals you can go read that article at the NFL's website today. I'll save you the time if you don't have time to get to at all. Highlight a little bit. Any talks about what has tapped for the bill to make the playoffs can the Big Three are Tyrod Taylor LeSean McCoy sandy Lockett to deal with that game Sunday. Against Houston and he has written a column after that game. So. This up because you if you've been mentioned as on the year which that they were talking about in the break. Off the air about the final four games of the season. And what fans dressed fans were you more concerned about curing their weight the final four games the offense. What the defense. He writes this. The bills I'm taking a portion of the article okay. The bills actually haven't had a problem being aggressive after all this is the one of the most penalized teams in the league this year head coach Rex Ryan always has been a believer in the blitz the major issue. Has revolved around having the right people available on offense in order to be consistently effective. If that had been the case all season the bills to be controlling their own destiny at this point in the playoff race he points out Sammy missed games. We'll play as miss games and Taylor was knocked out of two games as well and and he writes let's not forget Percy Hartman. Few teams can overcome such losses when they're trying to establish their identity the bills heard even more by the setbacks when there once vaunted defense. Because there once pointed vaunted defense has underwhelmed this season. And he goes on to talk about the statistical rankings. When you look back at the season if they don't make the play guy and I know what who knows what happens in the next four games injuries and also urged. But a purist it's the season ended today. And they missed out on the play by one game by one game which you'll look back and go. Often it's screwed us over. Or to look back and go. The defense yeah I mean the injury I get it EJ I understand I actually. I would seem to be talking about really everything about the defense like you were just a bit better. Even with the injuries on offense this team was still averaging 24. Points a game. You can of one another a couple of games which games today of one. And could win week too no beat Cincinnati Jacksonville. As bad as the injuries are the leading that game in the fourth quarter and it's the injury I nobody at the defense. Lead ya and and and orders went down the field and then got a cult or a dozen or it was. Great but that hat and the NFL and the defense actually got them that lead I know but that whatever he was eighty or him but he was eighty yards away and you gave up a long touchdown drive in that game and not gonna talk about the jets game is on the defense at all. It's on pay EG I knew that but. But yeah and what you're looking at if you're looking at a reason for what you know what caused you to miss more disappointed. Its defense that was gonna be better. Then it was thought which game should the defense have won that it didn't. Kansas City not etiquette and doing in game they did their job the month and a game there Kansas City sure thirty points okay Kansas City. And that's a game where the office was healthy I still think the Jacksonville game close it out but Kansas City would be a very good example he wouldn't blame them for New England. And I know they got forty points scored against them but they're not beaten and the defense did their job in the second game of the England and you've got. Thirteen thirteen thirteen points and what else she beat Miami mean to them generally what else. Cincinnati. Probably not giants yields once and a video our offense was bad for what I have to three quarters. The defense in the giants game made a bad play they've they have been raised outages second half. So you know but like I guess I felt that the defense would have carried the day more often though no I don't disagree and that's why did he plays good defense out of my head this season yet. I mean out and it won't be fun but I'll talk about the fact that it's because Egypt played. Why did that make the playoffs because Egypt like you went on to. And you rob a little lost one of those games if you miss the playoffs by one game in in the one game that you lost the nation now you're back up played in through to pick sixes. Girl one was a fumble sorry yeah he gave them three touchdowns in order called talk about the defense all year I'll says crichton defense could have been better if you still lose to Jacksonville does doesn't make any difference. So one thing I was a skit I can't get the defense out of my head like an offense was. Injuries are problems yes I just felt the defense would have been so good it would have overcome. Even the backup quarterback playing for you. Though he did give fourteen yeah right it wasn't that he didn't play well he gave them to fourteen Paul beats. And you lost by a three make it really say when he won he really doesn't touchdowns and an initial drive short field seven again so seventh ranked Phil seventy yeah it and you lost by three. And your your defense gave you seven along the way also so. I was thinking about it this way trying to like put and a and I've analogy if you well. Our eyes of the bills the bills come into the season with this incredible. Talent on defense right they've got only the finest. Tomatoes. And cost spices and I don't cook a lot but everything you would need for a great Italian meal guy you've got. Ever doubles one of them ran ought to talk about this bright and you look at this spread you'd say. Poor. And a fight at the best ship around. With all these materials. Come and have myself feast as opposed that you cooking it. Nevertheless Jeff was good till but I left and we got another guy. And men seeking to make me the best Italian right my entire life okay so you got the new guy. They got you hire the new guy yeah and the new guy comes in he says. I am a master show. But I specialize in high. I don't make it count. I realize you've got all these wonderful ingredients ID. That's the thing they thought cook chef. And I can make this can make its so what he does with the current ingredients are gonna make a Thai no no no it's gonna try and only eight Italian jail you know there's and he looks at what you got to arrive on his right. And he makes the meal and is that you don't wasn't the best field ever had that it really wasn't and he says I will next bureau make it to. And he goes out he gets different pieces that it's. A lot of this about the defense we've kind of we had the impression that Rex is gonna come in and be dominant and I think if you look at it now you see there are some players that are not in positions that they should be and some are and some aren't linebackers are up to snuff Mario Williams seems to have a problem with the entire concept that the defense so they'll get rid of him. You know you eat it's not just I coached defense like coach defense right. You guys should speaker well mine's little different than I thought you were gonna go and a different direction with the analogy I. I thought you were going to say see you bring in a new chef. And then the chef. Doesn't have the same quality tomatoes though or doesn't have the same policy on mice he is it because Los last year the entire front line was healthy 100% of the time it's also true and if you hit downplayed Kyle Williams you can't just say well you know it's no big deal Kyle Williams and that's a Pro Bowl player year after year. An air and Williams it's a big drop off from Aaron Williams for the next best guy and Corey Graham is moving from cornerback to safety. There's all these different parts than what was happening last year so I mean exit look at them as. Having not his quality ingredients and expecting same I thought you're gonna go at the Al if you get home tomatoes are a bit bruised like Dolly right. A budget gonna say here in the ingredients well yeah sure you have those ingredients but I'm telling you. The meals I made my last restaurant. The way I made them and what I came up with. Outstanding. Always got rave reviews but I don't know the angry I don't have all those exact ingredients common it takes your ingredients. I used to make. I'm gonna try and make it work in a ditch and I'm created it. I aliens because you're tired the threat ITH. I don't know why hi ally and and he makes it and he tries to make your ingredients and is recipes work. And like you said it's not terrible you don't throw your fork down and go. Isn't the worst thing I've ever tasted. But you walk away going. I'm expecting more from the mile from this guy. And you can't get that out of your it was it was OK but for the next 23 weeks and giving up did you go to Schiff Jeremy the other thing I sure did. It was as good as I thought it was going to be. Did you have higher expectations for the right next year I bet wasn't that you wouldn't your friends you can't go to Schiff Jeremy it's. Well some people would though you writing on Yelp about the defense right now you'd go home they're not wrong because it's been underwhelming. I would tell you to go to the restaurant. But you know it's not gonna be the greatest did you ever had your life right. When you thought it was going to be. Near bought like it's a at this experience and it just didn't live to. Or recht said they're gonna have the best defense. If you think that's alive you're mad about that you might also want to call people wearing number one dad T shirts you know and said you're the number one dad. I try to be that. When it comes that is defense in the future of this defense. Bill retool and I expect them. Throughout Rex isn't tire run your. To be pretty good on defense. I think the other good defense next year and then the next year and will he get better at some. Game time decisions probably not. A lot of these coaches that probably are who they are yeah. Challenges and indeed been pretty good challenges up until can't well that he. Could you could argue are you are who we think you are or did you change either. Well I was in say may be changes because he depends on who's quarterback I'll believe that these guys are gonna change in the starring quarterback sneaks through regular but they don't go to run of the day a couple times the other way around and they re single and Greg Brady where Brady ran one that I saw for sure that they see the one that he ran he ran. And had so much room that he ran and slid in got hit in the helmet and complained that that's how much room he had on authority one quarterback sneak that he could run and slight. And complexity that doesn't all the time. I of the bills could have done it a few times that Tyrod and I'm sure they're they're being very cautious while he's a bid may be different they wanna protect him because he's not as big. Maybe. I don't know. When it comes looking back on this team once it's all said and done. It's not it's not fun to do this it's really not fun that's when it's frustrating say like you missed the playoffs because of the pass interference and cal Roby. The unity control over the as were not in the NFC east for pledges lives on the Nancy's not the AFC south. Idols gonna probably go physical form of Austin Jackson because of the injury. We could just one time the patriots still at six and reasons why did you make the playoffs well because in the division that my team plays in the bar is higher than any other and has been for ten years. So we don't we don't get to that. It's like trying to win the SEC if you are the third place team you've got Alabama every year in your conference good luck when in the SEC and you might be a better. Then conference USA right he was sure modicum you don't get the put conference champion banners up. Because you don't win it yeah you're playing at Alabama. No I I I get judges I know but who knows how the season's gonna play out when all is said and done and we keep and we reflect back on this season. I think for a lot of us now be a beam annoyed with the defense and feel like. I wouldn't be angry at the offense it's you know it's better than I thought it wants. You know it's it's putting up enough points it's running the ball. They're doing so much so much better. Then they did the last couple of years. So I can't find anything to be upset about with Greg Roman in the offense I would direct all my anger towards the defense. And right or wrong it's just how I would feel about those guys. They don't 30515 join us 888550 traffic fifty too much I'm in and our discussion. A quick text in the Jacksonville lost the defense was not to blame at all maybe the dumbest statement. Has made his career was that's a lot of stupid things. Can you say nine minutes 32. Drive to start the second half you remember we believe the lodge axle drive eighty yards the past and win. Silly me I sense some lemon which are you offended as well as you. Defend them. On the offense and gave them fourteen points souls. Seventeen points I mean they did score there it feels all but maybe it's crazy for me to say I'm not upset that my defense gave up seventeen points and game. And the last seven of which. We all know fake because of a pass interference call obsolete portals went thirteen for 29 with a 182 yards and a time out at the defense was that day. That night I just I'm sorry if you could. But I but I'm but I will always think about that last drive with the leaders dad let me know you're all leave for losing 21 in triple over. Time and it's a team effort sometimes everybody's got a chip and they did they scored the go ahead touchdown. And they gave up the game and a touchdown. Right it's in my head they gave up the game winning touchdown as bad as everything was EJ man on other deals in front of them each animal view about the game each touchdowns were seven. Egypt is sick moved sixty action points not a lot and you're right. EJ gives up 20 yes I know that per cent jump watch the senate gym games in the NFL won by a team whose quarterback throws to pick sixes. Anybody small percent find that Elias berries while it was a fumble. Sorry Iran was let him but but about a quarterback who gives the other team to touchdowns directly it's I'm saying. It's a pretty darn swappers' claim that defense man. They should have they should batted the ball down. Gil Morse Iran on the field and Egypt through those balls and that of those balls of the tar but it gets to the discussion about what we expected from the defense we expected to be. Eight top notched top level. One of the best in the league defense and we knew how far in the they want that and it and it and it means stopping Jacksonville when Blake portals at that moment. Does it mean stop in Philadelphia this week. Minus all the guys that their their minus. I don't think they should have problems stopping same repetition a problem stopping any of the quarterback's left on their schedule somebody gets thirty points up the rest of the season I'd be surprised. None of these offenses that good they're gonna face the rest of the way. They should win the match up their defense against opposing team's offense the rest of the way they should win the rest of the way. I'm not as confident merely because of the injuries. Their linebackers are shredded Kyle Williams is out and aero and by the way do Williams here's another point. It plays as he had on the field last two weeks. Ago. None well that's because they know you can't put them out there injuries matter you know I know that you. But odds are out in general that's what happens against doing imminent second matchup is duke and open it looked OK so they lost to Kansas City. Down their top two running backs lost two offensive line starters and lost a best structure in the first effort in every game. And as the one against their points in the second half but I mean but injuries they had injuries on their side of the Baltic. And they still got thirty's yes I'm all you know that defense wins championships lived forever and now it's points win. That's got to be the new thing they had all those injuries and got thirty. I didn't have injuries and I got 226. In the second half. Right six yen as sixteen times six points in the second half that does. You how many teams are gonna win with six points in the second. Though I wasn't an alternative and the defense entirely and just. Richard if they miss the playoffs spy game. It'll be about EJ Manuel playing against Jackson that'll be everything from. I will I will I lose I lose this I lose seven I always be thing I lose a seven game playoff series and in game three. I lost because I had Ryan bins all due respect Brian winning for the sabres the video I think yeah. He played game three. My while did you lose this series your. Defense is I mean I've played in ends Achilles is a video guy he's telling you called it a guy from the HL he's a video. You get a cold up. Give Matthew name skull is the video. Two touchdowns given the opposing team under Carr there you go mark are off to go in the anyway. Again it's on Denise they'll play bars and it's in the taxable loss didn't happen it died it doesn't count him. It wasn't on this continent it it doesn't count. With petition bills are six and five done boom washed it out stupid Jacksonville. I still think it's I. It's almost like I've. I wanna like right that like not be upset about that game because of everything you just laid out like if you did a discussion of the one game that will bug you more than any other if they fall one game short. And most think it's. I'd have to write it off because of everything you just said you know bill all the injuries and all that stuff the giants game I just keep looking attic on the loose. Home game. At division now as it turns out I mean Eli is good you shut down Beckham that day. They lost the giants game you know how would the office so hideous for the first what three quarters of that game. To the point where the defense literally had. In that game no room for error in the gave up the big touchdown on the on the past the running back that cable bug me a lot. The giants. 8030550. Join us 888550. To 550 when we get back a little edit or forget it and one better forget about it will involve. LeSean McCoy and his return to the city of brotherly love that's coming up on. Go likes him and sometimes you'll beat them with these speed here America you can you can really giving authors alone with people vote for him. On Ximian. It he's music if you feel like you can make a plea and he's not enforce the laws I don't know enough force in the Reagan. It is open. On if it is to allow people like all rubble woes and all hold game and on Korean rules you wanna warm clothes. In a lot of work in different from those recoup through. Like the song Rambo this. Kyra from the bills. Get better for got a coming up truck issue coming death there was a truck that overturned slash you know people send those to us. And they need some prep time and columns and you know me I'm like when he headlines I want to me like it right off the top of an editor for him because one. Tweeter sent me this truck crashed I thought of the perfect headline for a so good. And I bet. You yes you can Orton better you could probably be it but I'm really happy about likes oh really happy what kind of truck we. You like you and think about for a minute by real time yet and people send in their headlines. And we will do better forget and then get to destruct people think I'm just creative like right away all the time I need a little time think about. A semi carrying. Pigs. On I 86. That's takes. So I have. I'm really happy with the headline right. Why pay eggs running free in a nearby field after a tractor trailer. I'm between two path exits this past new York and they are offered yet. Lovely to take that survived the running free. Good for them yes so pigs texted and we demand your headlines for a big truck. Overturning in bath by the way that's you know. So I've got mine. At the better for. As both you better forget when I'm trying to think of headlines with. Pork bacon annoying. Sky pig truck crash. Come up with them. And thank you got to do our work with this. Pock obelisk send them along if you're missing an obvious thing with more consistent with an okay. Senator forget it. I have a folder just for trucks that have overturned it should we haven't yet got if we're saving them yes better forget it brought you by Seneca Booker can't wait that show we just do truck overturned headlines all day. Brought you by Seneca poker inside the Seneca Niagara casino get in the game all right. Those guys what some call I used to play football to play playing of the football running of the football for the Philadelphia Eagles. So a lot being made about his return to Philadelphia you know McCoy it's both these going around he made the street going need you guys this week he's one of the game. LeSean McCoy for statistical background. Has rushed for more than a 150. Yards. Six times in his NFL career. If you're wondering is her eyes 217 yards I'm not gonna do better forget these sets a career high. But I will do since it's happened six most recently last season. Better forget it McCoy tops. 150. Yards on Sunday in Philadelphia against a gotta check the stats I believe it's the number 27 issue. Run defense. Just rushing are just Russian bad it. Top 150. This season by the way his high for the bills is. One. Twelfth 33 games this season he's not a 112 yards I say all purpose he goes over that but probably not just rush I'll go with him just rushing. 150 topic. I'm gonna say he tops Josh rushing. He's been averaging. No more than twenty carries he's probably averaging somewhere between fifteen and twenty without doing the exact math. So upper teens there I think he's gonna get over twenty carries I think you'll feed him the ball that eagles' defense is a couple of weeks. And it it was some of global top 150. Think that's just the the way bills' offense hits big passes and gets a lot of chunks of yards like that. I wouldn't quite put it 150 I think he'll go over on. Placed in front of three times disease. Type I think for sure he's going over under and nobody use him in the passing. I'd. Mention this robe and earlier but we'll bring it back because wanna Golden State now 23 and held the warriors beat Indiana. Last night moved 23 and out everybody's pointing towards the big Christmas Day match up against the Cleveland Cavaliers. At Golden State. Editor forget it they will still be unbeaten Boston Milwaukee Phoenix. I'm sure I should brightly they finished the road trip Boston on the road Milwaukee on the road than their home for Phoenix and Milwaukee. And Utah before Golden State place Cleveland that are forget it they will still be unbeaten when it's god. Edit I'll save batted if Klay Thompson is out and the amount of time next speak to could be tough because Harrison Barnes missed the number well the B twenty way to know if they've run this stretch before Cleveland comes out. And they would have the first ever 70 road trip in the history of the National Basketball Association. And the other better forget it Cleveland Browns in the news once again did you know that if they lose ten games. They've already done that right there clips I've they clinched it 10610 loss season. Thirteenth time in seventeen years since the browns came back. They've lost ten games and the things are around here. That's pretty darn hitter yes. Ten losses thirteen times in seventeen years anyway Mike let talking yesterday about how. They're not necessarily the most unified organization right now. The building there are some splits in the building might threaten thing I am so fired death so I was gonna do the old better forget it. Not just the fire they're gonna clean house ray farmer Mike Patton the Ottawa just say. Your all time worst article over once again and throw everybody in the volcano. Connecticut to get it that's gonna get fired right at a GM was disciplined by the league for taxing yet because I mean if you get hired as the coach of the browns we talk about the volcano like you're starting. Point is a tightrope walking across the vote any that's like. You're just getting hired to get fired waiting coach after coach after coach after coach that was it should it object and you got one year one year fired yet. Yeah I mean if you are also your coach going to Cleveland you're going to get some sort of really a lucrative. All right your front loading this form. And again the contracts are guaranteed to you get paid yet they got by Diana I want some sort of assurance because let's be honest guys. This operation Iran and seems like a mess. So to Lavin wanted this job I've out of but the browns have to pay. More than they normally would to convince someone we will we will actually give you it's a chance here. It might don't. As it might try to get fired. With some adults hire him quickly and just go on the assumption that Cleveland has amassed yes. Yeah I think I was gonna ask you about the Cleveland goes after today when Mandela today and am. Was it someone trying to go to the cut. They just go call Kevin summoned right away and say hey you wanna recruit Johnny there was a juicy rumor that Cleveland would be entrusted in Urban Meyer. I would be from a PR standpoint it be great for the browns because a number eleven Ohio State that in this. If your Urban Meyer quite honestly. Take the job. I guess maybe depends if he's a big fan mentality thinks he can make it recruitment Zell but he Urban Meyer. Here. You just Nate you're gonna have double digit wins after double digit wins in Ohio State and here in the national title chase every year and you make an gazillion dollars. And people call you to come play for all Americans who call Utica play for you. On the I'd want the Cleveland Browns job I'd better forget it. Brought here by. Seneca poker inside the Seneca Niagara casino get in the game. All right. We have fun wacky music we have we can be better for you whatever you want for our big truck. And triumph in news. You have to do some from this and other because I got the thickest I've got a bunch people sending in tweeting in. Got a big truck and IE six near bath that overturned and apparently some.

And how tremendous it is in its simplicity. Extend a sports it's coming. Sports teams here's a first here. GR Sports Radio five feet. I don't know. Boy this. I'd extend those sports. One quick thing. The did you get in the what about the highway that the headline was that in the break which one pigs like at the highway. Let's go that's a good or whoever is a good and it's very good. You know. What else here sabres play tomorrow night in Calgary humans they've won seven straight home games. I mean that that some would they were not regulation all regulation or some overtime to shoot out. But they were a train wreck earlier this season Kerry Ramos played in fifteen of the last sixteen games and apparently they're playing a little bit better and cal Perry. We'll never supposed to be a good team and they got off or really bad start with a bad goaltending yeah. I made the playoffs last year and also dug in Hamilton having to figure out how to play in a different place he has been really good lately but he got off to a very bad start. And the kings are really playing well right now things are out there on a big win streak right now actually right they are running away with the Pacific division and when you see the kings playing really well. You get a little worried and here's one thing that I've been thinking about a little watching the kings. Is. A guy who's playing pretty decent for them he's not their big star but is a regular is great and McNabb. Who was and was that him Marie's first trade. And a guy who is not playing well for the sabres is that the laureate. Now the linchpin to that deal is Hudson fashion we really like to still in college now. But at Minnesota and currently. McNabb is a regular on a really good team in the west and the glory day is the 500. Ranked possession player in the NHL. 500 here's a new chart I've just been you just re tweet of the scoring chances per sixty. The sabres started it at. A very good number Matthew right. Scoring chances for sixty this sort of about 25 for nineteen against. They got up that 274. Point one against and now fall all the way back to about. And even. So there were getting more scoring chances and their opponents for them I mean the first month of the season. And in the last two and a half weeks they have drifted back to even and what their goaltending which has been below average save percentage. That's what's led to the not even really on that big of a skit but that it just. It looks like that it looks like they go from the team is out chance in the other team. To. They've been hemmed in from tidal. Even when they won a couple games yes they were outshot. I don't necessarily look at the Carolina game but there were a couple in a row where they got out shot and their goaltending is decent. They got some good opportunities and scored. The funny thing is they're scoring chances as a whole have gone down but they're shooting percentage is gone up. So they've been finishing a few more of those chances than they were earlier in the season but the trend right now. That is reading a little more on this was gonna happen there of their shooters was on abnormally low when you get to about thirty or forty games you can. Predict. Based on your score adjusted. Puck possession numbers kinda where the team is gonna finish and at this moment. Things are not looking good for the sabres being a playoff team and they have dropped two when the score is close. One of the worst possession teams league's third to last. Which is which is really not good and I've got an article coming out I'm hoping to finish it. Today about mark passive and I was different things how much of that can be chalked up the mark has it he's been out since November 17 literally every player. Is better when playing with mark I think just every defense is no every play and his puck possession statistic 50% is your breakeven. He is about 55%. For the team without him is it like 46 ports and does he would help a huge huge gap and I was just going back and watching a little video for the piece that I'm working on. So many good place keeping the puck in the zone so many good plays breaking out of the zone shutting down an ending plays quickly when opponents try to answer dissolved. He's just made such a huge difference in that possession that they really need him in the lineup and Tyler Ennis. Was not playing that well yet ten points in nineteen games and taking him out that the top six forward it. You're forced to put in a deaf player he's still a threat right even if he's off his game a little bit not scoring as much as you wanted to we still has offered the ability. He's skating he's somebody got to worry about and power play and all others. Well like the guy that's in that spot instead of Venice is Brian Gionta bright blue view vision. Ten points in nineteen games as young as ten and 25 games three goals and 45 games and we seven assists. I need him away from number fifty. And here's the thing if you lose a couple players and your possession goes down and you don't maybe get the goals that you would. But you have a goal you can belly out for a few games or hold you over your case but it's. Starting to become more and more obvious that they don't and that Linas hallmark is a little in over his head which we kind of thought he would be honest it doesn't really say anything about him. But it's not fair for a guy to come to North America play two games professionally. In Rochester and then be asked to. Come keep your franchise alive that is not. Which has solidified Rangers or. Blackhawks take T yeah this is not camp Talbots stepping in and and there are Lundqvist out all winter critical anti Niemi last night won a game without registering to save. He did. That's right gala and he pulled that led to made a goalie switch when it was 44 revenue of Lou the yup yup definitely yeah. And he didn't make a single save any got a win on. Like that you know I like the way played net that's coaching now. There's a winning attitude so who sabres hockey outlined is coming up next I'm trying to say. Tomorrow we're back at 6:8 tomorrow morning will be chat with bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman you'll be among our guests to make sure you join us for that have a great day everybody.
