It's not always Simon you know picked up quite well so. WGR Sports Radio five. Is that all right if I admit I'm more worried about stuff carries these in the next round at the NHL playoffs. Yes I think that's OK it's like the dominant story for me was that carries in the it's really sad it's disappointing. It's okay these they're talking about I watched on a speaker's post game press conference to talk about. Curry wanted to get in there he's crying his teammates try to console him because he can't go back out on the court. And on think you know this is in the second half this is this is that occur after the game OK quicker you know curry came out. He tried to go he comes out and he tries to go and it's like Ike he can he can't do it. And he's in tears and his teammates are trying to console did you want to get out on the court and now after the game understand its actual sprain not a week. And I'm just in their thinking. This is awful well I don't even have a rooting interests other than to watch the best player in the game play that game. Well the good news is the NBA playoffs last a long time. They can beat. The rockets without him for sure or and a should they consider throwing game five to extend the series longer to push playoffs for now. They had so I I tuned in our heads. By the time I got into that game it was in the third quarter Griffin all right I've got some time and watch the warriors. And Curry's not play. They eventually did they show the replay what happened and all that stuff now it's got a knee sprain so without stepped curry they had a 41 point third quarter and blew the game open which. Was probably going to happen anyway yeah but still yeah there's a funny thing about the warriors I watched. That entire game I didn't know part of its deeper with this with a crime. The first half they did not play particularly well. And Dwight Howard had about two points and I think it was fourteen of eighteen field goals for the rockets were in the paint. And what most teams are most errors in basketball you might say point what are they gonna do defensively to adjust. And with the warriors they don't really have to defeat adjust defensively they just make shots instead I was so much fun watching without curry. It was still a polite watching that third court an NBA record for three point which was set by the cabs on Friday where from he or Thursday they broke him so they Swedish gate when he won three pointers about curry. And I I just love the concept though but that sure defense is important but the reason that the rockets fell apart wasn't because their. All assembled they made some sort of adjustment on point out it's because Klay Thompson and Raymond green and Iguodala had huge shots don't instruct them. They just decide to take over the game and everybody sit in threes for the speed sit at three it was a fun game to watch that's. That that this the hope that he's okay yeah and maybe they go to the next front of him when they play the clippers in the next round. I think they would know they play the thunder. Not arms are out for the first time they would play the clippers the winner of the clippers and Portland series that's only 21 so might be a full week. Before they even play in the next round. What they can go down O'Toole the clippers if the things got really bad and he could come back. That's a knee sprain belongs in the east. Rain last don't know two to three weeks and I hope one to two weeks a day. It depends. On the big story that would went to sprain that that you know that was troubling to. Because again this is one of the most you know this is one of the electrifying players in his sport you wanna see those guys play. You know you wanna the Otto Bryce Harper play in baseball you wanna see all of that can play in hockey. And you tune in to watch the Golden State Warriors because you specifically what she stepped current and find out eighties injured and be who knows what he's gonna be back again. That's it was. But then as I said that's the pitch special. Used drama agreeing comes out it's a couple threes and gets them going in and play top to its couple theories mentioned Iguodala Shaun Livingston. As happened at a big game Speights comes in off the bench and he's set guys up their run an up and down the court dating lay ups to beat me transition. They're getting offensive rebounds they're just the doing well this is helped off. This is I have a 73 and nine season you have to have a great. Great team full team ask me that their depth is tremendous without curry they would be a playoff team they'd be one of the better teams in the Western Conference even without curry. But yeah how about the quote from dream on green saying if Steffi is out I would write a soft too. If you if if Curry's out people will. Say they they. Tell people might say they can't win it you might also get the instant well maybe he's not really the MVP let's see how many games they win without him. Prior without LeBron the cavs are probably an eight seed or non playoff team and without I would maybe owns about that part but without curry. The warriors are still good yet they in the rockets are also bad it helps to play the rockets missed. It's a good way to score a 121 point. So I think if you're dream on green if your guy you gotta be thinking. May it may be means round two against the clippers but for sure he bright be thinking can they beat the spurs if they meet him in the conference finals without curry. And then if you beat the spurs which I think would be tougher than be in the cabs can you if the suit Cleveland to write it the last two rounds or met let's project that out it could be. Clippers spurs caps. Can you do all that went out curry. That's a tough for you real tough ESPN did an article. How good they are when Curry's not on the floor this year when dream on and Klay Thompson are on the floor and they estimated they would still be a 57 win team. Without stepped Currie at all but that would be about on par with the clippers and not as good as the super. While that would make sense right. Meanwhile if you look at the schedule try to remembered as the NBA did they start the second round before all listeners are completely wait for everything you know what I can look at that for you if you want to unless there the second round. They do they don't wait for everybody to get done well appoint as I was I was like to make let port knicks Portland extend their series with the clippers. So called mistaking get a little finish off Houston and then hope Portland in the clippers go seven. Buys carry a few more days but I'm just curious as it stands clippers blazers is the farthest from being over. It's 21. Whereas Oklahoma City Dallas is 31 the spurs Carty Don Golden State's 31 so there is if you're going by day's make a difference. LA and Portland is that 21. So it. Helps a little bit right. Little. And you you you want India as much rest as possible on the other hand they don't need to rush him back. He's out try to take warm ups and take shots you don't rush him back and let him rest you can beat Houston you can win one more game against Houston went out of obviously. Question is can do in the second round series I don't know why they put him back on the floor yeah I mean ever gonna win. Just because James Harden hit one game winning shot the better team. Against Houston without him at all it seems like. They should just let him rest with the I thought the same thing with the Dallas Stars with Tyler Sagan. Mean like you could've won that series without him they did basically in the they brought him back too early and then he ended up sitting out the rest of the series. Well get well Seth Curry. Soon soon get well soon I thought the weak it was but I the the games I watched. The player I watch that NBA game yesterday but Minnesota Dallas yesterday I was flipping all over the place yesterday it was a lot of stuff or not. The Saint Louis Chicago game sets got right it would have been game six insects yet tonight our first game seven I thought and the islanders Florida series I wish I didn't watch it enough I think the islanders Florida series. Might have been the best first round series that nobody paid attention to. Taveras went nuts elders just advance to the class of the first times in the second round since 93. And Tarvaris had nine points. He figured it on nine of the islanders' fifteen goals he was all over the place. I wished I watched more of that series I didn't watch enough of it. But I thought the as the games over the weekend were very very at the ones I saw really entertaining the playoffs began with. Not lot of goals not a lot of shots not a lot of scoring chances offside challenge rules and all those that are stopped I thought the weekend's games were. Fantastic to do that I watched the most which in the Chicago Minnesota Dallas lots of goals and and play big saves crazy plays just. Last. I'm glad that. The capitals advance thank goodness a series wasn't so I was not there on it was not as enjoyable with the other day no it was. The flyers try to win the series without scoring which is dead generally difficult to do. But my least favorite playoff game of all time happen and there are the flyers one nothing victory in Washington in game five. My least neighbor came ever played mainly because there are a 109. Shot attempts. Not just on goal 109 shot attempts. And only one when in office skate and it was like a slow changeup roller bounce off the skate. Andy the flyers get rewarded for that they get a playoff win for that some. I was glad to the capitals take them out because I wanted to see Capps penguins in the next round should be great series all teams can score the capitals you know there's a lot of you know let's get offensive team through because we don't want a defensive game the capitals of the best team in the NHL defensively they gave up the fewest goals of any team in the league. So it's a little bit of a careful what you wish for scenario when it comes to Washington because. There are great defensive team too. And there are a high scoring with a nice target finish second I don't which is that a bit authorities that the leverage chills out to a gulls to Dole's best prolonged time they're one and one. Either way the point is there a top scoring team and a top goals against team. So good for them glad to see that they are. Through I want Washington through tonight's game seven the year blues fan you've got to be just totally freaking out and you know could. Get by Chicago somehow he had him on the hook and game five in double overtime couldn't get the job done. I just I've I imagine the Blackhawks are immensely confident or at least relax and the blues. Have to be. There has to be some sort of own known out again. I thought the blues were shot really did I figured I mean it is the Blackhawks were shot I thought they're down in that series and an even in game six down three to one. And I figured OK it that it was a great run for that met the six years of all these playoff run that's caught up to them their Don. Then they came out and they just smoke Saint Louis in the second period the other day they were all over them. The blues and the game maybe two or three shots hold period in that was played in the Saint Louis and the ice it was. Barrage after barrage after barrage some of them there were. Probably a lucky bouncer to him try to call all the goals. They'll kinda just there just. All one big match mishmash of goals. But they came out and has dominated the second appeared at the right now Saint Louis is dead and then they come back in the third athletic game was entertaining. Both come back. The blows the better team that they did they take the game to Chicago when their press and and they're getting chances Crawford made some nice saves for them that Chicago and to put the game away but. Yeah I don't know where what Saint Louis is where their mind is that. You know I know they're they're talking about the make in this thing out of terror cinco and not be in on the power play the other night and he. You know kind of told Hitchcock to get lost after after the game. That there will still walking off the bench in the game I'm not sure whether head is that. I really thought when Saint Louis was up the other day they were just gonna close this thing out after that first period and take the series. Report Chicago put on an amazing push. And it wasn't you know it's not just Toews and Kane. Their other guys are playing well for the Chicago Blackhawks and I don't know what to expect tonight I. I'm not sure I don't ever prediction for him because I don't know Saint Louis you know just comes together or they find a way to get it done or Chicago's. You know got the edge because it was nothing Kindle government we're gonna blow this series now that's a lot that's a lot of pressure to think about would have could have should of the games the chances you pad. And now you're back on home ice and also other stuff that can be a lot of pressure on the teams have time for games and road teams are winning every game of the plants. Forget the record is now but going into the weekend or five point three and 23 and fifth hour. While all the other week in mobile teams are healthy right Allen arms are Saint Louis to Chicago Bulls are very healthy. At a loss than any major. One of the things when it and you know we can come to tie this all together with stepped Currie the Florida series they're down throat check for the first four games of the series and we played in two. But injuries are the forgotten thing that that. Last year's cavs are without carrier ring and Kevin Love and I remember that that happened but I don't really care about it I would care about a Barrick cavs fan. And do the warriors if Seth Curry is out for a long time and you get knocked out playoffs. The warriors will care about that the rest of the teams that go on they won't you know we talk a lot about. Mom I should say a lot but the staph infection for Jamie keep the injuries to the defense for the U caution for Tim Connolly in that year. The hurricanes don't care about that. We view in on the team that ultimately wins a lot of times it's a team that stays healthy this actually can be proven with the Blackhawks Chicago Blackhawks. When they win the cup they stay healthy. And the kings they have to cops. They stay healthy the last does that Charlotte the last five or six cup winners are. The six healthiest teams in the playoffs they just don't they don't miss any man games they don't get anybody or. And it really hurt the kings to lose Alec Martinez who was a regular defenseman for them the guy that scored the game winner I think in the Stanley Cup final for them. Against the Rangers. And he was like at one Nieminen a night defenseman could move the puck and instead they had to play rob scary for twenty humans that is way too much for that's in America. Well I'm glad the flyers lost I'm by the flyers lost to I'm glad things have followed the way I was hoping I'd like CC Lewis I'm glad Washington what I think we all wanted to see. Washington and Pittsburgh Pittsburgh toyed with the Rangers as everybody thought they were going to. Without Florian. Went Marcum missed the first gamer too and yet they just roll that that series so we get Washington and Pittsburgh I think that's. Knock on wood great for the NHL yup. We get the flyers out wonderful. I noticed Florida either way you would have had a team moving under the second round for the first time in about twenty years. But the weight of ours is playing I think that's great that you get the chance to see him play in the second round against Tampa. Like to move Don good keep winning and then you can realize you don't need stamp goes anymore what else Dallas one good for lending. I was glad to see him get a chance. And their they are they score. Let you know I know Matthew I think you were tweeting about this keeper tweet about it. Wendy's team is there are Derek there are a nerve wracking bunch to watch plagued her own bed with their goaltending but boy they score they are fun. Offensive team to watch play Andy you know without with Sega to even better. How about the goaltenders for this to this point we guys the guys knocked out. Sources the guys that are going on in the next round Matt Murray is through and long Quist is out. Our carry Latin and is thrown in Minnesota it Niemi to managers mister. Moving along LA and San Jose Martin jones' throw in the all right I wouldn't say like iPod now numbers but he was okay quick is out. Hold B through and Michael lawyer earth out and then I guess islanders yet Thomas crisis through and Roberta Longo was out. These goaltenders. I actually wrote something about this because of no ever on Twitter last night it wasn't us it would take up a shot at him Marie it's just. In other the trade of a first round pick for Lennar. Kind of jumps out every once in awhile when a guy like Thomas rice to replaces Jos lobs a lock and a guy like Michael noise for the right he's the best goaltender. Maybe that the best in the playoffs but pretty close in whoever it's been great down the stretch for them he was acquired by the islanders for a third round pick and Chad Johnson. And then he cited deals a free agent with the flyers for less than two million dollars per year. So like. I watch these games and I know all the goalie is an important position you're going to play well hold these one of the vast. And bishops very goodies that he's been very good this year he could carry them by the islanders I think. But I just. I take it two ways I think it's it's why you don't trade one for a goalie but it's also why don't worry that you did because. If it doesn't work out for latter you'll just find somebody else it's not hard to do. It just takes a little bit trying and eventually if you have a good team you're goalie is gonna get hot enough to win a couple rounds it's always works that way. The these franchises that are generally talked about his. Teams that ignore goalies but the flyers are generally one that is talked about this way right. Well they deliver through nobody complains about an out the first round and when they had that three headed monster they beat the sabres on they had Michael Leighton there in the cup finals Marty for honest we don't wasn't ever thought of as a dominant. Marge good goalie totally good enough. And they got to the conference finals with Marty so he's like even the franchise that kind of embodies all you can't ignore goaltending when they do know they do well. Look at the islanders captain series if you would have just said. Goalie vs goal. Huge edge to Florida that you right along go against Thomas rice. Christ plays well they win the series why well you know taveras has five goals forces the end resemble what you guys do look pretty good job put the puck in the net it was a close series that were overtime games. But Christ's played well enough with the team and prodding him. To beat Roberta Longo and write one of the top goalies in the playoffs supposedly so I don't yeah. The I haven't thought about we used to pick on the flyers a lot I haven't thought about goalie thing in awhile with them. I think it's you know I looked more about the team that's in front of the goalie. And Michael lever does the you know let Brodeur predict and he can still beat the caps a couple of times the best team in the league and beat him with a back up goalie a couple of times I don't. Think about much I think last season was it for me. As awful as the sabres where. The goal is refined so I I I've I'm less inclined to go with. You know you have to find the goal you build from the goalie on out if you don't have the right guy you could throw in the guy and you could still win playoff series it just. I don't. I'm not trying to diminish the position and if the guy's got an 880 save percentage or cooked they needed but play while you do have to write but it doesn't mean. He got to go to the top of the draft. Or go make a blockbuster trade or spend 35 million dollars and create easy to find a goalie you find it funny that no it earth has said things. Along the lines of I took a lot of shots and buffalo looked a little hut like get used to it now what one of the games what was it like 82 to 28 in the course thing and Matthew you tweeted it. And he had all that is right I'll let the private buffalo when you know the sabres were what. Gave up a thousand something shot attack incident in his season so he should be used to that kind of workload he did seem to play well here in buffalo when that would happen which we were mad at him because yes we were Erdman. He almost ruined things. That he was the four who knows we don't yet he almost ruin things did you watch the Minnesota Dallas game and well there at least yes I did it to deceive the called the no goal was that a goal. And I should use the word controversy at wild fans thought it was and so nicely Linda benefit from noble for a change that was a crazy play that was a really I turned off. For the corner and going in the third right arm and it'll let you know Golden State was in the process of blowing out Houston so I don't know where I just kind of checked back in. It's 420. A check back in its fourth three that I start watching that game the rest of the way and in Dallas scores and then it was that was a wildly entertaining hockey game. And if you're a fan of either team I think you were nervous wreck and anything in any shot on goal I was a Dallas Stars that. I feel glad I'm in the second round I would be nervous wreck any time a puck it's close to my net with Torre let and its union Michael Putnam. Not and dubbed it didn't even play that left for Minnesota but if you're into the hole. Eight goals up and down play scoring chances that was a very entertaining third period as well. And I and I felt good for Lindy nice theme getting in the second round play more than. Stars haven't exactly looked like a one seed doing and they haven't had Sagan consistently so. You know getting him back if that happens when that happens to be nicely too they've given up goals are blown leads who's your pick to win right now. Mean I got to look at who's left there. The most complete game might belong to the sharks sharks or my I think that's a good they look calm they look completely the qualified I'll just mean and it's all match ups its may play in the first round so maybe they just match up perfectly with LA and that series with the sharks were completely qualified. And the the winner of that caps penguins series as we probably picked them out of the east that was too I would take in there's a little bit of an X-Factor because. This flurry coming back is that Matt merry gonna play so that view I would lean towards Pittsburgh but sure I'd I'd I'm not sure you go in for around the playoffs. With met Mary I assume flurry will be back at some point and he had a good season. But I would say the winner of that series. San Jose would be the favorite in the west of the what are the Pittsburgh Washington series I laugh coming out of there and having a good shot went in the if you do win four rounds with memory will someone immediately give him six million dollars per year. Probably. Wouldn't do that myself. But I'd about the find a way to dump Marc-Andre Fleury right. And they which judge you yet they can keep him again in the country but. It's really no fluke McMurray I mean in the AHL he was not just real good he was. Unbelievably. Good over a very big sample of time and then. The games that he played this year for Pittsburgh he was excellent too and and with the pick to get there the sharks were. Basically the second best team in the NHL over the final four months of the season they had a very bad stretch would Logan took her out early in the year and then after January 1. If you all the categories if you look at the course see the goals differential. All of it. They are one of the best teams in the NHL right there I would say they were. Probably number two in Pittsburgh was number one and the sharks play in the Western Conference which you know. So if they do when you look at their overall season numbers you might say and I you know in the standings. And the goal differential is just pretty good but. Once they had a full line up and play the rest of the season they were the best team only I can go for she. Arch run at it and Carolina I don't need and a timer Nashville and harder for Saint Louis to beat Chicago. I'd still prone route from India to get out of the west and win a cup but if not I can go for sharks run I mean that's the right never been to the finals that B and I story to see. Fun team to watch play good amount of talent on offense like him I can go for a run from them. 8030550.

Headlines the next update coming up at seven WGR sports updates brought you by Hamburg Mitsubishi and care broad. Just off the ninety cars. Suvs and deals built for buffalo. I think. Sure I like Matthews tweet. I tweaked it a little bit but I liked sweet Matthew tweeted out on the WGR count its draft week. What are you hoping for the bills drafted I thought Acadia I tweet was okay. One thing they'll make you happy at the bills draft. Trade trade up trade down opposition to what you get what I just give me that's one thing guys and I'll be happy with the bills protect so your I don't mind your baseline. This is what I need this and I'll walk away. You mean happy on draft day or my forecasting ahead. Because I know Marty complicated question like I just thought it was pretty it's Monday but I say 6:30 in the morning and if I say. I want of a starter on defense got a guy probably startup that's fair or not sharp but you can forecast ahead of Gannett then. I'll be happy. If they get a starter on defense. I will also cop out here is I'll admit if they draft a quarterback in nineteen. I'm going to be. I you make a full work I need to make a war that combines thrilled. And nervous I'm all be forest okay. I. I don't know what they are going to ultimately be I don't know where they're I don't know what their direction is and feel like they could just it's fork in the road. And you either one of these forks is guaranteed. Sure the defense Robert looks a little safer. But this quarterback if if Carson once is there are I'm sorry from Paxton alleges that area. And they take him. Let's be honest for our standpoint perk for people that talk about the team it's immensely more interest thing of the ticket Korman. It's also probably got a higher ceiling on it. And probably eight lower floor because the guy's not gonna play a single down. In 2016 barring Tyrod Taylor getting hurt or somehow not being on the team which is. Into Whaley sorry announced he's our starter. So I would like be happy with I'll be happy if they go out and they get out linebacker. Who can cover so an outside linebacker. To start this defense there yeah that's what would make me happy OK I'm at a playoff of your for. Forest for reverence what was it for breast health service come. Take a quarterback a won the first two rounds now make you happy I wanna quarterback and I don't wanna quarterback and around five. You know I suppose they could tech guy there and tell me how you know they had a great hire on their board. And he's you know in time he'll develop in the maybe somebody you could play a lot of quarterback. And I'm not gonna say it have to be in around one because. I think there are guys they can get and round two that would be good enough. I think they could move up into round two to may be to get a guy wanted to say give me a quarterback in row one or two that is that's what they're going to get a defense of start. They're going to I I think I mean I'd be shocked. I would still be shocked if their first pick is not a front seven. I really what south got an article up at our website at WGR 550 dot com. And Oprah surprised that the bills take one of these three players in the first round thousand B Ellis sedate this morning will delve into this one a little bit more. And that the steels itself thunder watch it at the cutters article and read it. But the three positions are offensive tackle wide receiver and safety. Carl Joseph the safety from West Virginia just docs and wide receiver from TCU Taylor dec profits attack state. I understand all three cases. I would still be surprised if they picked one of those positions I think they'll they'll go linebacker defensive line with their first pick. And as I said from being the one taught that. Your point is the right one they need to get back guy. I think they know that too when they're going to address that which win which would mean for me than they better get a quarterback in round two because I wanna quarterback won the first two. Scott points on a should've gone with governments but nerve filled. And does roll that's better than nor honestly haven't a tough time I'll be anxiously nervously throw. If they take quarter that the Paxton lunch yeah I don't I mean I just this is the trap though and I know I'm falling into it is that. You don't as the draft approaches each and every week it's like a lot of things. That's unexpected. And a number of things are expected you in your head say how's this gonna play out what's gonna happen. And in the process of doing that I talk myself and attend different scenarios and how I'll feel about each and every one of those scenarios but if they draft a quarterback I'm not gonna be mad about it. I think it's entirely. It's it's easy to defend as a decision. It's it's the most important position on the field they haven't had a guy that we've all agreed is good enough. In sixteen years and right now there's a guy that looks like he's in position to take that job. But is he good enough to take it for five years I'm not sure yet and this year we find out it's instantly see how much the bills wanna find out. Couldn't I make this case. If he's good enough to do it if Tyrod Taylor is good enough to win that position. To and to be the guy you're beauty of a hundred million dollars from. He shouldn't need a first round pick this year approve it. He shouldn't need the defense to be top five in the league. If your worth. The money your asking for and your good enough to overcome a defense that is fourteenth should be right if you're if you're going to be elite yes. Nobody is I don't know that anybody here you could feel good about Tyrod. No one hears projecting him to be an elite quarterback at this point but that almost sets up a scenario where OK I take a linebacker the linebacker is good the defense is. Ninth in the league sixth in the league and the bills win ten games and they missed the playoffs at ten and six are missing 97. And they have a decent year not a great year Tyrod builds on what he does. And I giving Tyrod more money in a big too long term commitment because my defense got better. If Taylor wants that money I need him to be better and I'm not paying him for nineteen success and paying him. For his success here scenario though he did say Tyrod took the next step. So I think if that if everything you just laid out occurs. I would expect that he would get the big quarterback contract because the team got more wins. They improved he took the next steps he played a little bit better. And either he'd be tagged or they would they would given the big contract but look you hit it. That the quarterback is the most important position on the field I'm not. And I understand the idea of taking the quarterback in nineteen David tweeted. I said I I wrote on Twitter. You know the one thing that would make me happy is the quarterback grow water Q David tweeted back might would not be taking the quarterback around 12 through four yes lynch nineteen I'd puke. I think a lot of bills fans would be not. Norville they would be. Angry if the bills took a quarterback at nineteen because you look at it going okay. I don't evidently quarterback. But I think I can have a winning record with this guy. What I need to fix my defense they had I think a lot of bills fans would be lifted. If they took a quarterback with their first pick. And you might be angry if they took anything other then a deeper into place you want an offensive tackle in a lot of wide receiver. You want somebody a stout front seven player. To really make an impact as a rookie I think the bills will do that. And I and I would probably do that as well. But quarterback is mr. Armey said he is the most important position on the field and what's happening with Tyrod. You know let's not operate under its a given guys he's going to be better this year. He'll just he'll take the next step don't keep getting better I don't know maybe maybe not maybe they don't you know maybe this is it he's OK not great. Are you gonna pay guy OK not great 70809000. Million dollars. If not and you might wanna have an option there in the future so go get the quarterback now that's like. To me if it is the one thing I think they'll address defense but I think you have to address quarterback I know there there needs. But one another wide receiver. They probably should take an offensive tackle at some point because of what's going on on the right side. And who knows how long according Glenn will be here with the tag they get a multiyear contract. I'm sure there gonna tech quarterback somewhere you take quarterbacks every year in the draft. And who knows what's happened with stuff on guild wars deal but quarterback give me a guy and don't wait till around five or cynics. Any talk about tight end. Anywhere seen it anywhere. I haven't been thinking about it me neither I did I spent some of the weekend. You know boning up on the draft reading my pro football weekly guide I got the tight ends pages I just kept going I mean I just I stop but. Now but not least not hot in the draft I mean you know I consider maybe adding another body but. A date three tied I Odyssey Jeremy I wouldn't even know yet. You need. Hi there would be no better than like six on my list due to letter back less on the took a tight end in the first round. Pull. Somewhere in the eighties Tony Hunt or something I've annoyed 1974. Dikes yeah I'm. I'm ready I'm sorry rewrite 1983 Tony Hunt with 1974. Rubin that chance in the first round now that would make for a fun show Friday morning. The next time someone tells you that Charles clay isn't worth it. Played this instant trivia. Since 2000. The bills have drafted tight end 12345678. Times. Eight tight end drafted since 2000 none earlier than the third round. That is fifteen years of draft and but it's in it's a little bit specialty position riots. There are always a lot. This institute is basically think of the last fifteen years of obscure bills' tight ends. Draft version like like there's a few on the team now like is it Dan Moore. It was more kept. They sign him from Clinton on saying he's not he was signed by is that Dan more and more David Moore Dave Moore Dave Moore gave more he was signed with their Mark Campbell he was not drafted not drafted yet for the good guys they brought in I can't think of eight draft picks it was a guy. If they. Horn decline. No no it was a guy from Stanford yeah I think there was a Tony climbing might be going back pretty part of united and I don't know that levees don't decliners 1995. Dots. While I nickel here in nickel areas correct Chris Wragge Chris grading on the team also correct Shawn Nelson. All soak I'll always remember Shawn Nelson because several people called and said that they should turn Shawn Nelson in to a specialist. Who guarded gronkowski. That they shouldn't give him one job. And in hindsight it probably would have worked just as well as I might just said that her commitment and maybe we've look at ideas. Robert Royal is not tracked unknowingly signed. Here remember guys they drafted the room. Okay am trying to think of the guys that we were talking about forgiving fake names to local news network Alessio here like I got one. Buying Derek Fine is correct Schulman Derek Schumann is correct Jonathan's. Now do ours birds and reconnaissance do bar yeah. Maybe yeah maybe a running back now with these guys is not known news there was a player here by that name he's tied and news on signs of experience. Undrafted free agent in 2008. If you believe that was a person really giving her things that are in your brain behavior and here. One of the more memorable moments in the history of the bills franchise net stadium cabinet Kevin Everett's third round 2005. This guy. When we did the fake news names on broadcasts. This guy tweeting about all bomb. From or again states it would call it stimulus in the US sat. Don't forget stimulus. At the you have to learn to spell the name right if you're going to be interviewed and you television. EU HUS stimulus yup he to me it's a meeker catches the tenuous at answering. I think it's fourteen. Now and I am missing one more from 2001. And O'Leary. Models of the bill I guess that next time someone tell all of his draft the O'Leary tied and you have to Robert royals not worth it yeah. Tight end is not a position that the bills have drafted. Too well it'll ill. 551. Thing from the bills draft what just name one thing you want and you'll be happy. What would it be. Stephen tweet today and moving down from nineteen to the mid twenties and other second round pick then. Take a defense that a linebacker route one. Best wide receiver or front seven player with a few picks in round two and wait when you quarterback of the third let's more than one thing about how it's. 803055. To join us eighty 888550. To 550 Pete says trade back pick up an extra two or three better value in those rounds this year. The draft by the way is Thursday. And then Friday and Saturday. We have wall to wall coverage.

He was undrafted. The tide in coming out of Arkansas bills signed him as an undrafted free agent and turned into into Proehl bull. Left tackle hash tag drafting and scouting and draft experts Jason Peters undrafted tight end. Bryce Harper NA crazy comeback win for the nationals that went sixteen innings I gotta throw quick flag there though. You can't it's baseball you don't throw. He's jealous I would challenge. Unbelievable. He says op. That Bryce Harper hits a home run DS nine home runs in eighteen games and let in home runs last year and first as a pinch hitter generational doesn't slayer does an area that is pinch hitter. That's player in the league pinch hitter in a pinch. Him hitting a home run it's pretty unbelievable death threats harper but he had never in his career hit one in a pinch hitters rule before. How many pinch hitter that has happened ballots a good point probably you're asking me if I find it unbelievable that price however goes to the plate as a pinch hitter and a hits a homer yeah I was following Twitter watching the stars game and I saw Bryce Harper game tying home run and I totally believe that now. Well. You might appoint. Eight on on the quarterback isn't getting tweets about you know hey I'd puke if it took Clinton nineteen puke what's the puke for. Jason tweeted and not taking which at nineteen take top defense events slash tackle. Available after trading down to get an extra two that's I I probably should point out you could still trade down in around one. And then take lynch at a lower round one pick if they so desire maybe for itself for those are saying and short you know what lynch might be gone by the time. They pick at nineteen because of what's going now with the quarterbacks though. The tweet any pass rusher so if you're just joining us Howard chairman Matthew hoping had a marvelous weakened some crazy games this weekend we've been talking about. In the NHL playoffs in the NBA playoffs carry getting injured yesterday and the warriors still blown out Houston. What the best games of the weekend what you watch but the draft is Thursday. You get one thing one thing will make you happy and one thing that make you puke. That one on one. Or making have you would make if you didn't. Does it mean guys are rein in dollars that puke of Paxton let's get taken at the bits and have your reaction. Albright will we can someone wrote through to cancel a season tickets once and for all the ticker cornerback Al. Well after all these years of sixty no playoffs on the conditions at the local because of a cornerback crafted. Ice ball like if the bill decided to not take part in the draft I think that would anger me. But off route one Bob would I'd be angry that. Honestly. I don't know you be mad offensive backing out and defensive back and Matt running back. You'd be mad that there's no way they're taking a running defensive back. But it Gar Heard and maybe inducted with the act OK am I mean but they're not taken a guard. OK so yes did you want all that money apple and running back tight end guard. Defensive back. A kicker would confuse me if they took their first round it. So I would dig deeper to back. You know I know cells article said. Don't be surprised that took its safety and we always talk about quarterbacks but I would be surprised I would I would not be happy if they went quarter safety with their first. You know a question we should've asked don't really that we didn't last week and we can ask him next week after the draft but we talked to the bills again. Has the way the board has been put together changed over the years. Has it always is ban. Here are scores here are the players ranked. Or is there a hear the players ranked on score and here is a weighted score based on how important positions let's say that they think that a guard. Is the best player in the draft at what he is supposed to do he is a flawless. Hall of fame guard. Where does a hall of fame guard get ranked in distract. I easy third. Or is he 47 because they think in guard its position that we as a franchise that's the bill speaking. We've already walked away from guards before walked away from any levee tree saying we have a value we sat on the position. And then walked away from Gerris Burke at safety because value they set and the position the they have the same approach. At the draft where they would say. You know we believe this guy is great but as the safety the the highest you can get as a safety would be fourteenth overall and I shouldn't get as a guard is twentieth overall whereas quarterbacks can go all the way to one. Running backs can go to about eight. Receivers can go to for you I'm saying. Yeah can I not have a hall of fame guard anywhere in round one with that scene I just it's a guard that's what I mean if you are you very offensive guards or less it's a card. Jeremy I don't let's they even talk about it art in round one sorry it's a guard. Right code time when cash code.
