It's okay. Nine or off again off again back outside to push that oil that's the one. Iran that I turned on its heels turned it on in them a target that's what happened. It's it's it's been awhile and that is because I've been on this regular events and stuff you are usually the on Barton is the one that turns it but MF fuel message you and turn it off so that makes you think the lost your mind and you didn't turn it on right he does that some time I got you power is on vacation this week -- -- you've made and since what January maybe this couple months ago yeah oblivion every couple months now on the yeah well what's Wednesday I've I've I've spent the entire week not knowing what day it is and all day yesterday I made. Conversation and brought up the fact that it was Wednesday yesterday at school the entire day I don't know this hurts or helps but I have the entire morning since I've gotten up the house for a okay. The Hokies don't date that should help that. Probably will help this old home day which of that information as ago. We've gotten lots on the way Brad hang out till 8 o'clock Mike robe with Ty comes up for a one gold micro to tie it at. Eight from about 8845. Richie in cog need to we just got a new contract from the bills that thing goes to the eleventh hour and then. These signing contracts so Richie cog in a return to the bills. And we are expecting to talk to him at 9:15 this morning he's out west so he's actually gonna get up early. The talk to bill's fans so that's that's kind of cool. He's locked in for three more years of domination he did tweak it three more they're gonna be three more years of domination I guess it's idle. A little bit base path that led the league in rushing as a team. You know he's just. Big sort of snow plow it out like that's what he's been asked to do. But big picture having watched all the games not a lot of dominate it for years. Mean three more quick to cross off more reported three years domination really excited and oh good that's what this item. Now we're gonna Dominic now that act now. The word more struck Mears excessive or the other. Wrong for rock. He has been dominant. Seoul. He could've tossed in there horse settle domination. Three more years off arsenal domination Nike's gonna Donny would look like a team guy exactly as a left guard you've kind of got to be a team guy gets his co wrote exactly the left art so. Get what he's gone for appreciate. The sentiment. I just think it's that wrong well we will hold his feet to the fire Ellen get a team know we probably won't. But in dogged joins us sets 9:15 this morning at eight when asked about what it's like to play for Rex when he comes back. And joins this off RC rejoins softens like 41 stays put the bill seven offseason where. They basically say it will bring in everybody back and it's going to be better except for Mario everybody else pretty much in Leodis McKelvin is coming back. And it's going to be better. And you know what are the chances it is better I think there's a good chance it's kind of like every year you rate may your flip and points in the bills could either be tenants six or six in ten. And whichever way it goes will probably decide the fate of ten men over the air I like GM coach all yeah quarterback whatever ultimately happens. And a lot of times that 88 team is the same team is at ten and sixteen he can come down of four plays and gain or even officials challenges or morals what so. A passer after Kelly in London yeah I mean as horrible injuries about things that went horribly wrong. In this past season and the first thing that flashes before your eyes. There's about five minutes of the worst quarterback player that's ever happened in the national football DJ Emanuel the rest of that game he actually is pretty good. And they should have come out of there with a win and how different is the season if they do come out of there with the wind it's really tough sell. While you look at this past season and say not good enough. I defy you to clearly state buffing it has to change to take this team to play so what's. This is obvious this offseason they need to do blank like hearing Matthew during sports at the top of the hour saying. It was giving you is somebody else mr. bill lock up their biggest free agent not what you just now. Lock up administratively well that it was much of the year now to worry about free agents if you left aren't your biggest freeagent. It's right it's rat but it tells me there's. One of obvious work to be done. It is NFL free agency which every year for me is an exercise in. So and so signs here that's a big get for them and I think. Who always that. The raiders the raiders signed guard. Huge threat they're gonna get of this dark as they're needed one rice ran gatlin said they're into the raiders are prepared to blow the top off the dark market whose rent when. He covers the NFL aren't the raiders signing guy right there won a senate gonna blow the top off the guard market my reaction is. I don't think that sounds like a very good I tee off at the fool who wants to blow the pop off the dark market the bills paid him a good price for an cog meal and that's fine he's good. He's returning to a team he's very successful on it's not that long the money seems to be about right for a while people tell me guard salaries are. And there's never really been any question about him as a player and if you check the box of can he fit in here and does it work here. He's probably. An end ED in eighty found that smoking and other teams probably. A better fit here than anywhere else. Just because anywhere else egos. He's still the guy dealing with Jonathan Marten he's got to prove it again he's got something else here that's that's gone. So I don't know how that translates as far as dollars being offered to you but. Hitting the open market and having to justify your character to 29 other teams will be able to iron out of the equation. Probably not ideal so it would make sense that he could go into the illegal tampering period drama I think we're cool. Now I want to play one of my favorite games of this because while I now in Gagne dole signed his deal and it's reported widely. That he took less money to stay with the bills that you know. The money DCs out there is big money but ultimately they come to terms and he takes less to stay with the bills and might begin that I like to place any time there is. Source says. The game is who wants me to think that's true. Who wants me think getting cog Nino took less money to stay with the bills I am I. Being. His agent wants him to think he took less money to stay with the bills. And their force felt this merit or make everything else feel make everyone else do that about it so. I'm always gonna look at the age of first on the this time I think it's the agents. Pulling one over outing got veto but. I don't think he did take less money they get more money was available he'd play for somebody else. But the idea of letting him live with that fantasy that he's being as good Buffalo Bill to help. We're taking less money Dan you wanna have been offered a week from now. Last month it was offered yesterday. To hypothetical amount of my best but I think it allows him to leave and that fantasy and that's good for every evolves so are we to the agent. This is an easy one for me I think the answer is both the agent and the team. The team gets to say we gotta alas that's not only a bargain. It goes over well fans do and if you're the agent you say it because it's all of my guy was really coveted. And taken that discount to stay with you bills fans so it's not to say that. It's lying and it's bad but any time there's a report because there was at all or should find sorry don't music executives at a but there was one NFL reporter who said do not believe a word that he took less to stay with the bills but it's hometown discount he got what he got. And that's about fair this wasn't a guy taking significantly last to stay where it was you know in this spot. And he gets beneficial for both the team and the player to make up five million dollar salary have a nice Rosie feel to it. Well I think hypothetical is the exact word you you pulled that out but. He took less then he thinks. And his agent date may be he could have gotten by going through this week long process it's almost the signing restrict entry. When I signed a deal. Or excuse me signing a guy just before he hits. You have made stats and saying. You know what let's. Audible got a house the kids were in school a mistake here and envoy to take less than. In my dreams I'm about to be offered just to get this thing over with that I believed to be a 100% true. On what I. I think we would disagree on is in tuxedos. Value on the open market my version of it pursues his version of it but he believed to possibly contract signed. 8030550. If you wanna join us on this the Inkatha leader news became yesterday he signs according glance sizes signs as franchise tag soul. All right under the draft like the off season free agency starts today in south of pot you're we've got live coverage from south from twelve to three today. So where lives were covering NFL free agency not just the bills but who signs everywhere. It is an odd day in the sports world because as it just mentioned whether it's. This guard goes hearing gets big money this is the day the bill signed Derrick Dockery and Langston Walker as a dark day goes from bad date Chris is expensive it is an expensive that a resultant Chris Villarrial. Russia is free agent see good I don't know can you possibly remember. I remember and I hated him her number thinking. You always do with the offensive linemen if you've heard of him at all. Ike's if you have altered or this guy out scene if you haven't heard of he would say I know is and that's probably a good thing if he's in office on grass I don't wanna hear his name too often. So there's that this is the time India the bills got like if you looking back on the best free agent signings in the worst. Tequila spikes as good good Charles clay and gets in the DiMarco yeah I think I like clay a lot of B that's a good one. Who else yet reception in the pre season were just went over the top armor I think is probably easier to hit them over the top and my thought that was all if this is what he can do and it's the best free agent signing ever I can't believe. That I kinda didn't know it was full body play for Miami that's that's the part of Charles please citing that I didn't love was. It's almost the Drew Bledsoe suddenly. Put its at like eight years and haven't disputed yet. War idol I think this is a good idea now so that's kind of where I was with Charles let them seemed pre season knowing that he's kind of guy who can. To run past somebody catch the ball from their positions that we've never seen with the bills. Was exciting but. You know he was on the field announced this past year for me to say. Man I can't wait to see Charles like that applicable. Dating get a bunch of catches and and it was Tony Gonzales who said he should be should be embarrassed by his season which. You know I wouldn't agree with that mean he's out there are a lot of run plays that the things he allows them the ability to be. Greg Romans favor or multiple free agency it's also a time or Mario Williams appears goes to the Miami Dolphins. Now there's a team that. Looks at or at least the fan base if you're Miami fan and he signed Mario you probably think good. He's been sacking quarterbacks for awhile at Mario had a solid game. Where he was dominant and gave the bills when you know people talk about one's gonna take over a game defensive ends in a big tool. Plenty of times and you can still allusion to three sacks and luge you can pressure the quarterback all they disrupt and offense all day but if you're offense doesn't score. The defense of and didn't take over the game if there's one for Mario it's a game in Miami. To force fumbles gets the ball back for the bills to get the game winning field goal Mario had great games against Miami. I'm not as mad at Mario as some are the people man yes I think it's okay to I don't have a problem with anyone that's. Saying good riddance I don't say good to me it's just. It's a break up its price you know we had some good years and things ultimately didn't work out so the best of luck in Miami I don't. You know I won't. And an opponent who anybody really but I I don't have any sort of you know that guys illusion or heard him out on us I don't have that I know we gave up on his team and their money team teammates that are saying that. What do you hear plenty of character questions about commitment and that's the reason that there at the break up happens but. That can happen and then he can recommit himself to Miami Richey and Todd need to give up on a team. Noelle what he had a problem the got a suspended from the NFL free Europe and came back and prove that he's the player that he believes he is you can play on April bull levels so I think it's a good signing for Miami. And playing against the dolphins I'm gonna have to worry about Mario Williams because. My guess is he finds a team and a defense that fits him at least in his mind more to his skill set and ability and don't expect a bounce. Back season from him. To me. When you bring in Rex Ryan as your head coach there's obviously culture change with the year that your organization. And it's not a subtle sort of he's brash he's bold he's loud he's flash he's all these things and it right off the bat you're looking back on. I guess you're being loud and stuff but I don't see what you doing working for me. I think it's really easy. To see a guy like Mario Williams who obviously was aware of his contract situation. And the likelihood of all the stuff that we realize as a seasonal anomaly or you'll there's a cap hit probably doesn't make sense for him to come back into that. So if you knew that. And then there that's right thing isn't working out for him mentally right away easy to see how I would. Check out. To a certain extent still sort of go about its business to quit quit but maybe he started to see that he was on his way out the door. And we all sites in Mosul could be mad at him for seeing it. One side. You're right I think it's a break up things to sort of we went our separate ways outskirts and Ron Allen lives no hard feelings thanks for all the sacks great job thanks rob a sex. Skip by an Al sorry. I'm Mario though. You know. This is another example of when you sign a contract hollow the hundred million dollar man yeah I have to contract is already gone. He's not hundred billion dollar man nobody is first saw him on it that's for Israel or the other is 98 and like half of it was guaranteed an always on the team anymore. Soul all hundred million dollar remain ready in 49. Think we've we've really got to stop Paul talking with the contracts in their full value. I am at the point where all I wanna know is does it fit under the cap Yasser now past the whole thing about bats Oprah like it does he fit yes but the here. On. Even players like so and so they want him to take a pay cut. Well okay you might think because pay cut did you have a job where you though you go to your office for forty hours a week you get that you that you go home. The NFL. I wonder if players even care about salaries that ball. Like OK what's my signing bonus and then here's the check that just goes into a back up but I don't think about what if you're due to the right way. Your Marshawn Lynch you're not touching the you know you're not touching your your salary he's in touch anything but. Kind of feel like all we should talk about is guaranteed money when we're when you're gonna call Mario. A hundred million dollar man. All of you know. 31 million dollar man because that's what he's actually guarantee what society bonus what's. Roster bonus coming up that sort of thing but as far as salaries cancer when you're asking the guy. To take a pay cut they want to renegotiate the contract of silence. The way that got here is that it each and here's that is they want to cut you a check today. Care about the money in the future 'cause it's not real it's not guaranteed that doesn't match. Yet you wanna write down your name and get ten million dollars right now right yes take a pay cut yeah there's ten million dollars. It'll 30550 free agency begins today Terrell Owens mark seventh of 2009. I was excited about that one as fun he was on the team and he played all right he was flying their cornerbacks were terrible as they usually have been that. Signing. Actually forced me in the season tickets on your remember the conversation you and I had at the time we had season tickets to the bills together you know and I was done. And you know and ISI or else sick I remember sitting on your back yard. And having a conversation and ultimately saying. I really have to give up my season tickets that you're the Terrell Owens plays for the built right in it for one more that's it now and then that is a regret it. And I have been done ever since Ehrlich a game a year now but I I was so sick of the losing the things that kill me. Was. And losing so much as the losing and then having to get home from there. Like spending two hours in traffic thinking about a loss just winners on after one year after year whatever but TO solve all my problems. Made everything okay for one year in and I realized he didn't solve my problems and and. President there's there there's some sort of graft that you could make because you don't live that far from the stadium now so taking two hours for you to get home is more annoying. Then summary that lives an hour and a half away eating two hours to get home absolute so if you live five minutes away and it takes two hours I mean that that the graph there it would. Frustration. Plus time equals all my got a kick. Expect page expectation of some one of these acts is on. The part where. You're just. In traffic and that that just happened again used in the stadium it felt good that you feel bad. And now you're stuck in traffic with all these people who also felt good Cuba or thrown stuff at each other that each other all be all that stuff. Is what has that driven me away from going on a weekly basis but winning Tuesday that to order a bloody. What you want in free agency is the bills to sign another egress routes from the stadium I always if they would bring in Iraq in the forward. To order a helicopter at this point. On but if I could you use a helicopter to get to a from games I BC's capital. It seems like a reasonable idea how and getting it out fan friendly health 8030550 Greg in Cheektowaga Greg morning going to be Charlotte Jerry white and Brad Wright. Pagers and our guards feel what we got Richie cracked. I think he brings a lot more of us to build and everybody thinks we actually are borrower cheeseburger. Regarded dominate at his position nearly fatal extra money for a great article or hear a lot on its contract. Are you enjoy watching regard opera play each each and every week so what you were shut out there's 11 bad out here emerging ideal all the oil. I think strike when it comes to watching offensive linemen and if the number of linemen it is fun to watch is a small list. But if you're the kind of fan can have fun watching linemen I will agree I think ink I mean it was near the top of the list the way the bills Ron and they get him on the move. He's the perfect guy for check out this replay and and the announcer talks about look at this hundred pounds a man come to bear down the barrel. Like that's Richie cog need to he's on the move they pull them all the time and heat. You called a snowplow that's pretty good name he just. Blazes trails for all the bills running backs in the bills had. Success at running back with a might still asleep. War was on the caller Carl's Williams but they are and the ball effectively no matter who was in their and they did have the number one rushing attack in the league now. If you wanna make the case that no one in rushing what does it get you. I know. I know that it doesn't really get too much. It's time of possession arrest your defense can get two points it can work for you but. You know the passing game tends to be what people focus on I get that. But the way the bills are built. Bringing banking got veto franchise tag in courting one I think that's what they probably should do. For as much as the conversation seems to be that it's actually it's quarterback leave all that. Any problem whatsoever with having a team that's trying to do things differently than everybody else. That's traded here we are trying to get it allows its money ball type thing where it's. You value this well perfect. And I team's all value that I want a value that's the so it's not that extreme but the basic concept of I want to win I've got a plan for it. And a big part of that all the beleaguered Russian. And that they were able to execute that to me says there. Something right something is right about the plan now it adds of course like to. The playoffs yet. It certainly didn't this season but. Not a team for leading the the industry that they're trying to legally. Even if there's not a lot of respect for that are real. You've got to play your head coach your coaching staff. Don't have two and one. To what the league thinks you have to do. Play in a league where restraint did seem exactly. So I'm cool that Welch which brings to the point I don't know. Want to get upset about the seasons. When the season ended I looked at that which ended differently. What I wanna change. A hole you wanna find an answer on defense to be more reliable. People forget you know we have to break here. None I think people forget me it makes is a big generalization a lot of people forget they had great defensive games. They had pork offensive games but this wasn't the 31 ranked defense for the entire season they had very strong gamers. So on the they lost. You know it's it's at it's a league worst scoring is up and if you're gonna run the ball and not be a team that can throw it you're gonna kind of need to stay close in coming from behind and is going to be tough. 8030550. We've got lots to get too because don't talk a LeSean McCoy to you know. The running attack whether or not there is a significant drop off from McCord the other guys because the bills. Might be thinking about. McCoy being suspended for couple games depending on how things go on Philadelphia he doesn't have to be guilty of leaking just come in say five games if they want. The league does that often. You don't have to be charged unit to be arrested or convicted. You can just be associated with something and they can suspend you for a period of time to a charity have to be in that we think you're a bad dude program he might already be in that program in May be the end may be there. 8030550. Hours on vacation Brad here talking big free agency the bills entering free agency cells on from twelve to three reliable local all day. Expect a quiet day for the bills. But keep an eye on other teams around the division what happened to Brian pits Patrick. Mario Williams appears to be going to Miami Leodis McKelvin is going to Philadelphia to join Jim Schwartz. Mckelvin by the way have a stronger season with pat not which works but. Anyway. People were kind of saying well. The kelp O Schwarz become was better with patent and with with Rex than it was Schwartz. Industrial 550 but maybe get great short again. 1888 by fifty to 550 sabres fall to the Rangers would get so the update the highlights that make us smile. Are on the way area we got those even I don't know what's this we got those and out quick thought on last night's sabres game mixed in with some bills for Yates talk here on WTO. Steered away by Johnson came out in front of them and again that's knocked down buffalo coming out to god one thought does that erase it comes it'll revitalize our gulf. Is that a lot of good things a lot to take note of that. You know there on the best teams in the league and give them preferable. If we play like you're getting out there period. You know we feel pretty comfortable. And right are speaking on the goal he scored courtesy of Jack articles assists. The west and air dental sabres highlights that made us smile brought you by Western New York dental group the official that has. All the Buffalo Sabres. Good Wednesday morning it being Wednesday means that is hole he hump day Brad writers in for power Howard's on vacation Brad I know you don't know about Oki come thing of course you know all aid in so easy to six dollars and fifty cents all day at Jim's steak -- company. Free agency and NFL opens up. Today even looked kind asserted Monday in deals are announced yesterday but today's reunion. For real free agency. Guys can sign anywhere they want and the league year starts today. This is there any technique. Big story that's pending as far as free agency's concerns you know I got a big time. Anything on removal could move. Nothing right miss this seems like. As dead as the NHL trade deadline if that was that was a nod in Spain and here we are. On another day that's supposed to be thing but I think he's got another on things. It's not a total month aiming teams tinker with their rosters but. I was listening to ESPN radio over the weekend it was junking Kate talking about. Free agency in the NFL and now the good teams don't use. The good teams build through the draft. And he was suggesting that you shouldn't really get into free agency because the more money you spend. The worse it ends up being in the spending a lot of free agency is a waste of money. And two point I think that is correct. But you only spend in free agency because your bat in the draft if you have the good players then you don't seek. Other players to the idea that free agency is the problem is not accurate to me it's. Well the teams that are good in the draft don't even need to use it the patriots need to use it lasts because of Tom Brady teams that don't have quarterback like the bills look let's be honest. Why did they sign all their good defensive players why they bring in Charles clay it's because you know as we talked on the first segment. They're not a team that is living in the passing league they don't have a guy to throw it forty times a game so their approaches are right we don't have that. How're we gonna build our team let's get as many good players and other positions as possible will that translate to eleven wins. It's not as likely to as it would be if you had and lock. But you do the best that you can sell the he'll see the occasional free agency is overrated and I agree there are there pitfalls to their problems too it. But I don't buy the general idea that well the good teams build through the draft right every team builds through the draft. Team supplement the roster free agency mail. All right and no matter what you do in every team drafts and other trades at just seven players every year. And in free agency you're not signing seven players that you expect your new key for the next ten years here signing. One player or two players to eight year deal that really means three. Or 84 million dollars it really means point two million dollars while the dollar is right it's all just arsenic fraudulent but it. It's it's misleading it's misleading it's over discussed its hyper analyzed. And ultimately ends up meaning almost nothing. To the grand scheme of things with when you look at who's on happens on the bottom of the league to give you think of any. Super Bowl champion or team that became a powerhouse and it was all because of something that happened to free agency. We used to say that about the patriots their first Super Bowl their first few. Remember they signed a bunch of guys that they just brought in off the scrap heap in the this guy in this guy in this guy look at that was back when Tom Brady was it a system quarterback we were not impressed by him. It was well savvy freeagent hopes turns out the guys all Cameron that was a big help. Yes I'm on I guess that's a different type of thing and talking about you think everybody. Peace deal fills out the roster with guys who know how to play football you didn't necessarily selective strap that to me is not what today it's not obligated this example we can talk about Mario Williams. Mario Williams I guess like a big deal like that. Reggie White. You know there was Reggie White gets signed by the Packers and it becomes. Sometimes free agency and sometimes signing a big player is yes about your roster. But also about. Shown people that you're for real. Is doing a declaration in this were doing this we are in the league here and there are things about the sabres with this and NHL free agency is probably a bit more valuable but now that's even died to. The air Hoff Leino day right that when they spent a ton of money on the most. Lane as a terrible contract. But. It did say the league. We just joy we just we just moved up to the big table right we are no longer your farm team that doesn't pay anybody and lets our stars walk away. Will make big stupid deals and global bulls signed guys to big money Contra actual front load contracts are not afraid of that at all. And to me there is value in that it's kind of like if Stevens stamp coast signs that the sabres in the offseason yes it will be amazing for the roster but it would also be. And indicate pull. Check it out the big fish came here in if we think about Mario Williams and you I worked on the air together for Mario for a lot of it. I Mario Williams how do you evaluate. His time here was he was worth that yes to meet the answer is yes. Would it say for the bills what to do for the bills mean might he might added zero wins if you go to. That analytics and wins over replacement get a bunch of sacks he was part of a couple really good defense is and they didn't make the playoffs but I don't blame Mario Williams for that when I think of what he did for the bills. It was a couple things it was bringing a start the defense. And I'll be honest he made me believe that great players or whatever the biggest fish in the pond. Could actually come here and before that I never thought it was possible the bills didn't it in so little waters when we would talk about that year. We get calls it guys went outside a Mario Williams I can distinctly remember saying they've got a better shot of winning the Super Bowl inciting Mario Williams. Because it was such a crazy idea to act guy. We ever get those guys. And any like deer in the backyard and dictate. All turns out the bill's money is green. And it's football and some players might like it here so. Free agency yes. People evaluated on wins and losses and people evaluated on. In all did you build up hype did you sell tickets it's all part of the game and you know I give if nothing else. I think Mario gave me and maybe many others the belief that. Yeah the bills can can play with the big boys why can't it. But I I think what's funny is that when thinking about. Whether or not this day in free agency I remember when exactly he's weathered the big free agent signing. Has ever been the defining moment of the turnaround of a franchise. You called you go to guy that signed with the Green Bay Packers 23 years ago. Let's I mean that's what it's like the Trent Dilfer argument almost two trees he's in debt for twelve years and in your example of that right. You remember the Erie guide you look at up I remember the year he died from about a minute and a half ago I looked at Arctic but he's been dead for twelve years. December 26 2000. So what. One. Defection saying god I thought up Reggie White at the price off. But of the biggest bill trans formative signing by the bills prior to Mario Williams. Spikes do but price populous and look at what they had and it look what they've done here. I got one more okay Drew Brees. But again yes but you're your point now he's situated right and you write many despite the Broncos and helping to but. Generally speaking hey it's free agency today. Nothing comes of it. Occasionally there's a guy that you know. It was a bigger deal that year that Drew Brees was available as quarterback bandit free agency opened the NFL writes I guess it's a sort of a. Know your your points now lost on me in there I would kind of point back to the thing about the draft is if you're really a great player. It's rare that you reach. Your teams don't mess around marshaled ours does not see free agency the bill say no. Here's all hundred million dollars arm if you are that quarterback. You just due to see free agency Andrew Luck. If you wanted to he could hit the free agent market we could talk about this in any sport. And free agency in the NHL is dying to you might want the sabres assign economy David in 67 years by then he'll like Edmonton. And if played his whole career there and they'll offer him the moon. And that I would that price and that back I just doesn't become available if you think about the big freeagent stand coast is a rarity doesn't happen. Stamp goes to the other big fish Cole talk at the market and then ultimately re signed with the team that he was on. So they traded him and then he state where he wanted it to sign an LA though. As a we're all thing in I was in Russia I I take spectacle chipping but the point is the big big fish. They don't hit free agency is much it almost feels like baseball's free agency is the most significant. Actual players will get the free agency in baseball pitchers dual time. Pitchers get the free agency and they Indy cash in. Eight time. So for whatever reason baseball players and it works sometimes yes it doesn't mean you look at. Again dated reference but before Marlins as a team that was assembled there. For the 99 on the Boston Boston Red Sox amino a lot of teams have built through free agency in baseball. It's it's just a bit different. 8030550. Consider any of some savers talk. We will. Last night's game. Turning point out that's that's saying a lot but. I do want to talk about that third period on what you thought about it. That top line is. And everything maybe I want to be right about now order to that next here on WG. For on the idea was he was gonna become a Jimmy Graham type player in Joseph Lombardi is offense Lombardi is now gone. Johnson is now gone very more out of me Bryant and you're on find somebody. To line up across from Golden Tate and hope that that guy can be at least as good as Johnson was last year Lester Johnson wasn't great but he was still pretty good they need to at least find a way to match what Johnson did and hopefully find the next guy. Who's gonna command extra attention everywhere he goes. That's Mike morial I'm Calvin Johnson. It was announced his retirement Brad I'm just tweeting as Brad writers and today Matthew collar here as well as Howard's on vacation and his tweeting let's what he's tweeting here. If we all agree to keep this Calvin Johnson retirement. And quiet. We can shore that someone at every one of our fancy dress takes him. Right we can totally do that as a country. Keep it a little bit quite know old huge retrospect kids. You don't Calvin Johnson scored in the first round someone's gonna take him and that's exactly your soul we're gonna stop talking about it. Right now. The guy. I'm so sabres game last night. Their fantasy drafts for hockey shortly after the limousine crash. That put Wladimir counts you know in a wheelchair yeah. And the guy drafted Vladimir constant you know. And basically got laughed out of the room. His response was the best I've ever seen. He said. Apparently you don't have access this information and I'd. Austin and look out he's still got that letter that's the operative play another game in the NHL. But I think he won that moment he backed it up there that's two years ago and it's still stands in my head as well has been responsible. So it was an opportunity for that kind of thing that felt. Right. By night. Eight at 30550. Eyed soul freeze he starts today we'll continue to talk about that and get updates on that we've got a micro but tonight 8 o'clock for some hockey talk we've. Two things football mind fifteen with Richie and got me to the bills announcing a three year deal she's three year deal frank argued. And last night sabres game the sabres lose it goes from three nothing Robin Leonard gets pulled. To Michael assists on the played a rhino. It's a pretty goal. Seoul Sam gets his nineteenth of the season Sampson it's his nineteenth of the season assist from Jack cycle. And then the third period it's like the Rangers were. Up three nothing we're going to win this game to. All. We let them back in this and now all this it it seemed like if the sabres scored in the third period last night that the building would go nuts. On a level it hasn't in a long time because there there it. People talk about how quiet it gets in there and I of course it does they've been terrible they don't score but last night the way ghost three were playing the new guys the young guys. Where the team is banned and the third period that they put together last night even though they didn't score. Again I don't believe in like telling point in a march game but it really felt like this is this is what it's gonna be like well. Would have been twice or roll the that group. Spurred a comeback ended up losing. The previous. Games all run together these seasons lately but that same group. You know that the nifty little pass and run our decaying the other day and it's it's sort of starting to feel. Either one even its feel like oh yeah that's what this team does they can fall down but then they can. Sort of wring it altogether and start scoring in bunches. The victories yet but. The feeling that we've all been hoping to get out of this season which was not. Yeah we win the Stanley Cup here in buffalo. But was rather. That can envision a day when this is the best team in hockey before to be able to envision a day when our guys are better than your guys. And to have that happen a couple games in a row in you know pretty rapid succession sort of global. And start to think you've got that sort of team makes sense that you could have had the building. In a good way you know quote. Didn't quite get there again but. And that the standings. Do not at all to me tell the story of what I'm watching this year there have been some sort of sleepy moments that has been anything horrible. To view of their. There's been some kind of who I guess we're worrying. Reveal longer sort of turnaround period then. The most optimistic people call here from black. I still feel great that it's it's sort of about those moments to meet this year thinking about what can be especially her two young guys do. Yeah I I've had very little trouble watching the season the injuries to all Riley in an astronaut fawn right now but we talked about this we'll talk of this microbe tidy clocked. The fact that now they are forced to lean on Michael and Reinhart more. Maybe that's for their long term benefit they're they're getting. A bigger heavier load than they normally would and it's the that's the home stretch for them I'd imagine it's probably tough in Gaza as a got for Michael. And Brian are Toobin Michael Moore so he probably could use an offseason last year's offseason was NCAA tournament. Combine draft draft tour pre season world championships mixed in there as well like eichel has not had time to just. Okay just hang out I'm Matt Olson's couch for sure and an offseason might be pretty good and you know go to the World Cup this year. 8030550. To join us in 18550. To 550 Matthew writes in that someone took Kelvin Benjamin in a fancy draft last year yet. Barry Foster when he retired summary in my fantasy league took Barry Foster that's how funny it is when you draft to retire player what you're Barry Foster retire. I remember I'm getting picked in a fantasy draft and we can do this five no one talk about Calvin Johnson and we will all have someone in our draft. That takes you might even want to take when the thirteenth round a case Jesus might. That's not terrible idea right what you did very fostered her 199. 94. Must Donovan George Foster and that event could event was played sensible long time ago. I mean I've never been going seizes the Barry Foster platelets to her Oscar Foster played seven seasons with five seasons how old is very Foster if Foster your tired and don't hold. I don't think 51. Force a are in both real by fifty when we return your calls on free agency to you got something that you want the built the target. And also brings us the signing of the loving god Neil brings us to Matthew. Who asked her reevaluate. Eight previously held position and we all do guard. Now now. The an opinion position. Will all do that with the help of a brand new Twitter feed that I think is a ton of fun and we'll tell you all about it next here and be easier.
