Shout about you'll hear the on the John Murphy show on Buffalo Bills radio. One bottle right here in our fort night together now that Brayton knows the. Term for night two weeks. That's how long I've been here two weeks ago tonight actually was the first show that I did a year. To fill informer while he takes a very well deserved break and then he will be back again after the weekend's tonight as the last night let's celebrate. And I know you asked repeats a party I have to be honest I did bring myself a couple slices of pizza from home. Than on the. They have later on so I didn't really feed you so I'll beat earlier. Olive. I feel bad about that really argue that I have I have the 88. That's good job by the it is we bring thanks a lot for all your help you're on the contributions on the program as well onto while the other producers. You were here and eight Geary Austin you know get gal marine meat seasoning and down my too far. All of them up producing the program. And also to. In the meantime. While we go through this last show together I figured we have some fun tonight I wanted to find a way to have a fun show that we can all kind of laugh a little bit right. And what better way to lab and elaborate yourself. That's what I was thinking what a better way to laugh and laugh at yourself. Sort of do that tonight if you. Will do that would me. 803055888. By 52 by fifty. How I wanna laugh at ourselves is. Because of the NHL and NBA free agency period going on right now it started today. 1201 AM for the NBA 1201 PM. For the NHL. Because of that and because of roster turnover. In those sports it kind of got me think in about roster turn over about. Going out getting free agents. And things like that in the NFL and how we could tied in the Buffalo Bills talk. So here's what I came up with and I'd like it at. This what you need to do tonight write a game because let me explain this to its Friday. It's candidate they happy candidate to all our Canadian listeners and nobody else out there who celebrates candidate for whatever reason you might. It's a holiday weekend is July 4 Independence Day is the United States on Monday a lot of your traveling listening you can't necessarily call we got Bluetooth he could probably do it that way. Summer hanging out barbecue and maybe sit around on the porch whatever. And usually when that happens. You don't get as many calls on a Friday night normally and especially at a holiday weekend but I want to head. Have a reason to call tonight to have some fun into. Make money yourself in the meantime how about the program because we're gonna need to generate some callers tonight here in the final two hours of the John Murphy show. Here well what with me hosting before markets back. In order to do that is this question and I thought about the NBA the NHL free agency and roster turnover and all that. Think throughout bill's history. Really I think you'd probably have to go really back to about the early to read around the late eighties early ninety's. To go to when free agency kind of started but even before then the draft you can go with. For sure and then trades too but anyway it's possible. Traded. Free agency. Draft doesn't matter. What acquisition to the bills may. The you were totally wrong about the way you felt it turned out completely different than what you felt and by the way good or bad. I neither side of that. Meeting all my god. They got this guy I love him he's gonna be so good just wait you told your buddies your runner on your house you are really. Happy they drafted on or they got to penetrate or adding signs read that you're really happy about it and then two years later is that Italy. And you're still defending him near bodies because he never got a shot that wanna let's finally be honest. Okay today's and tonight's the night to fill let it finally. Let the. Honesty finally blow and stop defending that player whoever that is just describe for you or any other side. Acquisition. Draft trade free agency. That you said. What that hack he stinks he's never going to be any good like to spend money on them like he's been upper drop Vick got on I can't believe it. And then. 56 years later he's going to throw balls. And a really nice career. And you're like. Damn they a trip like. To say. Artist Gary in there Britain. But. That too that can all be the same. Whatever it is 8030550. Think about it for yourself let's have some quality in the eighty year you're probably out right now of people. Are telling you what to do remember when you thought. The iron maven was going to be greats like. You need to call salary now tellem that auto I didn't think Jeremy in his youth thought that no idea how I didn't know now and now as the type honesty. You can do it there's been a lot of guys are out and about history I felt that way back I thought Heath Shuler was going to be a good quarterback I'll admit it that's on me. He he was horrible. And there's been guys that IA would have been clearly right about in their big guys were clearly wrong about I didn't think JaMarcus Russell because it wasn't. For example I can go through guys I thought or good or bad throughout the league what is the bills start for me. Because like many feel like I wanted to I wanted to always a work out. Bullet doesn't always work out and when I think back I think about some of the guys they really liked and then said man and you know what I. She's out on Twitter and may in the responses are already tremendous from some you. Really really get. So I'll get to those and then at 730 tonight gonna talk with my buddy Alex Roemer out of Boston. Alex is. Someone who covers the patriots. Writes about them. Talked about Boston sports and many platforms news sports everything it's. He's done a great job he's really young just got to Khaled what he's been doing this since you like 14 am not getting. That kid was on Letterman I think what is fourteen as I guess sports broadcasting prodigy. And eerie as he's actually doing it for a living in a really problems I knew back then. And he's gonna join me at 730 to talk about it offseason the patriots had. With the feeling is there in Boston about where they are going from here I now got to talk patriots not really but. You know we did jets and dolphins last night someone new patriots tonight just got to wrap up the AFC east sold and Alex. Marty says Rob Johnson know rob wasn't patch for some days when I get where you're going. Chuck says in god meego I thought it would be a bad signing boy was I wrong you know you a lot of people chuck that's not one to be. Too embarrassed about it in the other thing is I think people. Thought it would be for a lot of different reasons you know. Rick very good when I like this a lot iPod James Hardy would have done a lot better. Nice. Need Jesus Bledsoe he was still relatively young at the time they got like a total of sixteen to when he good games. Or three years yeah that's right I mean if you look at it that way but you can also look they did some great things on offense in that time he was here they really did but I understand. John says lights out Shawne Merriman really thought it resurrect his career here turns out that he he made a tonic. Ton of money for a couple of injured coffee. Travis as I was wrong about Mark Anderson. Dozens of those write about Manny Lawson I love it see I get a this is I do this do Travis I'm not picking on you but people do this they wanted to Ali I was wrong with this guy right about that guy I just did it a minute ago. I told you I was wrong about Heath Shuler and its allies right about JaMarcus Russell. So people do that you wanna justify your wrongness. With being right here's a good one Tommy. I thought Bryce Brown was going to be great really ate my words at the chiefs game yet here's the thing Tommy. Price drop was great in that chief's game. And that he fumbled the ball. He was really good in that game in any fumbled the ball they were good they were winning. I think that game I have to go back and look specifically but he didn't use he he was not horrible Eagles uniform but he fumbled the ball and he's gonna be remembered for that no doubt about it. So will go up the phone line to get your thoughts again come on I'll be honest with yourself laugh yourself tonight it's Friday night it's holiday weekend. Help me out here let's get some calls going on the final night the most informer here on Buffalo Bills radio. What bills acquisition. Via free agency. Trade. Or draft where you completely wrong about in the end rich in buffalo is gonna start us off hi Richard on the dumber Biggio. They always a pleasure right lovely and appear very insightful man and enjoy when you're on the radio much yeah I hit the the day Willis McGahee at the time when we yet threat that electing. Think what Travis Henry with Iran and back and amber are but. I had visions up Thurman Thomas because he had that serious injury like I'm stating Pallet. I'd that it would steal the iron let it sit envisioning another great run him back if we add obviously didn't like it here while the party scene like until. And up that Spain where we end and let senator from the Baltimore are he had couple productive season and Aaron and it was done itself. They can work at the say look we negate is the one that I was really excited about the time outs when right now they're on the garlic actually I don't. You know what's funny is if you look at his overall numbers though he's had a nice career he's actually. One of the only guy still active are at least wasn't a year or so ago from that entire draft class which is amazing. Exactly what etc. wish she would have stayed here he is it like the scene Aaron yeah. I mean that was interesting now that's a good one which I appreciate that that's. Member when they draft him there was a lot of questions that will host turned out pretty well after that redshirt year they gave them. He did some nice things to bills uniform and nice overall productive career again his career lasted way longer. The most running Nixon who thought that from that guy with that knee injury Tony and buffalo hi Tony here on the job Murphy show. Get pick up our particular of Bruce Smith. While did you think Bruce Smith was a bad pick in 1985. I'll XIA Tony congratulations I give you credit for admitting that on the radio buddy. Yeah yeah he was he was overweight fat Barack. Issues. And Abby got injury at the problem. And now you know it's funny as Tony he was overweight and out of shape for about the first two years of his career to. So it look like you're gonna be right about that in any really transformed himself and turned around and most of that credit is given a Marv Levy. Yeah yeah yeah yeah I agree it but got. I thought I was on the books are going to be. Well I'm glad he didn't turn out to be a bus but he is a bus now he's Abbas in the hall of fame. Thanks Tony I appreciate it I can't take credit for that joke that's a Wade Phillips joke about JJ watt but it sounded good coming out of my mouth just there. Because you gave me the opening Tony. He was a bust. In the hall of fame. You know they're the boss you know the guys picked up let's go to Shawna North Carolina hi Sean the dumber Asia. I need my Catholic outlook I don't. You can't make up what you love. About Kyle Orton. I broke debt in our government that dialogue with the Broncos that it at the armed we have not gotten the that it. Air. I probably depleted wanted to won't win that patio covered in it for the playoff. Well I'll just vote with regard and left block. He did he smoke a cigar that that's right game which by the way it was a nice game as a nice when they came back from. After the pick six and his first hour remember that very clearly. But thank you very much of the phone calls John that's that's a good one. Kyle Orton body's gonna be really good. That's we've gotten both tonight that's I wanna I wanna both sides of the spectrum I think it's easier to say. Here's a guy thought it was gonna be good but wasn't but how about the other way to think about guys you thought I I don't know why they're getting them like gum he's acted in good. And then he was I have one for you that's gonna surprise you. I didn't I'll say this I didn't think he was going to be bad but I never thought he'd turn up anything special. He's on the team now. In his name is Jerry Hughes. Look what went Jerry Hughes was in Indy he did not do much we all know that that's why Indy traded them in to meet. He was just the guy the bills were trading port of that a system that's what he was still. There remove it from. 34043. And they needed a guy like Jerry Hughes in the system. And they got Adam and sure enough. Sherry used turns out to be. A monster. But in with 3443 you don't whatever it was at the time that's my point but he was great. He turned out to be he is still is. And that's one that I'll say you know what I'm glad I was wrong not I thought he'd be batter a bust but I did not think. Too much about it I just body be appealing guy rotational guy that would help. And here we are. Thankfully later on where he is the player that he is now. Guys that I. A guy thought would be really good. But didn't turn out to be you know what. I don't think this is one that many of you would this is one I should say that most of you probably felt the same way because it wouldn't be any. Fault of our own to think this way. Mike Williams not the receiver remember the offensive linemen they drafted what number three overall performer all. And he just basically eight is way out of the league but everyone pretty much said this guys can't mess there were two guys coming out that here. McKinney was the other one from Miami Mike Williams from Texas. In most say he's going to be stud for many years anchor left tackle I felt that I by B anchor left tackle for years. And appears later he was no longer in football. There are more we'll get to him. Let's go to Cory in buffalo though Corey hi you're on the dumber you show. Date. Opt. Out of our I made a trip for one. See terrible. Art. Yeah he got. Not that not. A lot. Might otherwise but not here or property they're old girl. That are out. What a welcome here art dealer. Ollie threw for over 400 yards and a playoff game. I got out opened. It and I bet you're home people. And I 80 I like it I looked at eight edit in and out you. And cannot. Yet that. Wow yeah that's a good one that's a good one because Korea act I think gay you know he was a guy that put up some nice numbers a few times what. Overall just wasn't sustainable and that's what it really came out to them. Luck and keep it. He can't grow. Are out at that'd be strictly it. Awesome man thinks like Corey appreciate it very good call there let's go to Durkin Dunkirk likely that's all I Dirk you're on the Jabber Asia. Itself I don't Manning great job that Cory just called my on their toes. Gonna talk about an idiot Indiana. Yeah he was that members now here's here's I always uses him as an example there would I use them as an example for us why. You don't reach in the draft for a specific need the bills wanted to tall receiver. They took him when there are some other really good receivers still out there but just because they weren't all like him they passed on him. Yeah I had one at all but I'm not try to go bad. They don't I scripture in. Certain guys opt defense lineman in the upper hand out. Yet a did you like that you liked anybody be pretty good. No no no I didn't like it all is Mario put the army you North Carolina they well. Right okay yeah that's good that's good no doubt no doubt about it thinks there I appreciated by more looking for guys you thought would be good but I get your point again where you go in but look at her guys more than you thought would be good. But turned out not good or as you said what are you doing it turned out pretty darn good for them. You're the bills draft a linebacker years ago. He was pouring hardly his name scoring more I don't know how many people listening remember this guy out and a look at operate now what year this was Virginia Tech. This kid was. Here is Corey Moore. Played for the bills but there were two Corey mores I wanna make sure I got. I think is the 190 bills selected more the third round of the 2000 draft he played one year was later released I'd love this it. He was so good in college at Virginia Tech. He earned the rock go to her ski ward and look at this now is the best defensive player in council ball one Lombardi award is accountable lineman of the year. Named football news defensive player of the year became just the second REIT beat tech clearly recognize the unanimous first team all American. 31 sex series final two college seasons. And I love and third round like Mike got a steal Corey Moore it's a little short who cares. And it lasted one season. There's one or not a first rounder third rounder Decker a member for that. Advocate one now okay we got Tommy. One guy that I thought that when he was signed he was gonna do some really nice things with Opel with Derrick Dockery. Signed to a gaseous giant did an invite to a record for his positioning our. At least in bills history at the Jimmy eat and overall the ask art and then lasted two years out last two years and was not NN Langston Walker came together remember yes there was those with a big signings. Did not work out let's go to Rick in. Oak feel hi Ricky on the dumber did you. Good night on that day thanks. I was wondering I saw a bit young would later to school boards are actually got him. You know what he lit up training camp any he played OK I think of our member pre season not great but. He when he was at training camp and he was out there throwing balls around I said man he is physically. So much better than everybody out here and it just didn't translate wreck that's the thing I don't know what happened. Yeah I would like tightened day he would do pretty good. Yeah I agree it is thank you very much of a good one in and you know here's that's a guy that had been in the league had success in the league. And there was every reason to believe that he could still be gut. Heck maybe Matt Weiner might be the guy for you for that that's the same kind of thing remember the bills picked up Matt liner for a couple Coffey was your like a week couple years ago. Remember that one. I'll this again I let's go to bill in Rochester name we haven't heard yet okay bill you're up on the dumber be sure we got. All right so. Right now and depreciation and he didn't even going to. A man you know I don't even be embarrassed by that a lot of people were on hand they thought that. I'm glad that I was more patient because I had the pleasure of the least watching him. Throughout the many camps in the OTAs and I thought he was very good I was disappointed but. And that pre season performance but I think bill a lot of people were within you when they said why did they take this kid. It. Out but wait. I don't. My support that. Do it. Mark in the general manager for all whatever the decision not to do it they're like approach it. But it definitely they're that are occurring Beijing and he can't play ball at the war I find it. And then later that same draft they took John McCargo so I I agree that I don't think it was a very good experiment you know having Marv back in that role we all of marvel at. Just didn't work out the way a lot of people wanted to for sure to thank bill and you know. Pre in my back was great for a lot of reasons for bill's fans no doubt about that but. I think a lot of bills fans had lots of visions of how great he was as a coach it just didn't translate. To the same way as a GM but you know Dick Jauron was here as well they had a relationship it's it was both of them you know making those personnel decisions I understand that. For sure 803055888552. Pipe that you're gonna have Alex Roemer come on at 730. And we're gonna go over the offseason for the New England Patriots we did the jets and the dolphins last night we're gonna do the patriots tonight. They have a lot of question marks hanging over their heads as far as the quarterback is concerned one big question mark I should say with. The plate gate in what's going on there and by the way a ruling could come at any time for that. We don't know in if it at the second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Tom Brady they have to read here that entire thing. But if they do not he may take that to the Supreme Court so we'll see where that stands but. We'll get a feel for what potato McChrystal get up there now that he's there and the rest of the patriots offseason that comes up here. In just a few minutes of Scottsdale first daily up next on the John Murphy show what's up. I cured at there're. Not long after Jim Kelly was done playing and having such high expectations on my quarterback. I thought that we can do battered and Doug Flutie a lot of all the ground be old and I really brought jobs guy. Fooled by what he didn't Jacksonville. And at one start against Indianapolis. I was cute it's rotten job with the guy and it sparked the. You know what gala I I agree a lot of what you set I think I was in that same spot I did not really like the decision to play him that day but long term I liked Rob Johnson I thought he was gonna be. A quarterback we could rely on here for many years. And he had a lot of the physical tools that would help you think that but now that I look back I think it's clear that Doug Flutie was the better choice. What can I say in my defense though I did call that morning shall last year that we where you're one. Ever but he thought it was between castle and EJ Manuel and I all the great character wrote we are starting quarterback. Off the radio and I'm truly convinced that the guy you can blow up or could go we. While I think I hope you're right about that as opposed to Rob Johnson I appreciate it thanks buddy. Right. Interesting stuff good stuff got a lot of good stuff on Twitter by the way touching Nelson would be a franchise type and says Barton. Any rights groups Alec says argue with everybody that Percy Harvick will prove them wrong teaches that it's healthy look I mean. Alex he was good he just didn't think healthy that was the only thing it didn't change but that's right no wonder James Hardy from KGB. Here's a good one backer says Darby thought he he was not a need but never mind like that I like what people say. I thought this guy would be bad but he turned out good that's it that's some good stuff there will get to more though some more tweets that sells sports talk without dreamer. Coming up next about the patriots offseason but in the meantime gather your thoughts about the question. What bills acquisition. Over the years. Trade free agency draft. Were you completely wrong about your assessment in the end will look take your calls and that is legal forty in the dumber be sure to. I'll pick out there and on our Major League Baseball to make these games are going on right now. They are still playing in Serrano. Happy Canada day Toronto because you are now in the nineteenth inning. Against the Cleveland Indians the Cleveland has taken a 21 lead they're going to the bottom of the nineteenth I'm in today. In Toronto they've already played two full games plus up there reds and nationals won one in the third. Royals trailed the Phillies won nothing that one just starting same thing with the Red Sox have won nothing legally angels no score between the cubs and Mets no score between. The tigers in the rays. And again the blue jays nineteenth inning but the big story today. In buffalo sports and really one of the bigger stories in sports because of NHL free agency the sabres signing. Kyle oppose sell away from the New York Islanders is reportedly a seven year deal 42 million dollars for that. And the sabres got to get their man and they now will focus their attention most likely and Jimmy BC OB baker award winner from Harvard. And they can land him the sabres haven't really really successful offseason. To go what they've done over the last couple years of that to take that's a look great there at your sports update here on the John are we shall right now we're gonna head up to Boston. Speaking of Jimmy DC speaking up poverty and we're to talk with Alex Reamer and I an Italian. Alex the young pup in this business but he's doing some amazing things in. He's so young I think god not too long ago you were at the age of like fourteen annaly Letterman as the next sports broadcast prodigy is that right was that something like that. 121001. Out. Now you that you're twelve years old and I'm Leno when when was that like ten years ago. Delphi both I think that that's about it suddenly first. That note that we don't know yet creepy if they admitted after the US install weary right now the puck out these days but great to be with you here today. So what do you do now you're writing for Forbes you ready for Boston magazine SB nation you're on the Harold radio you're 22 in this Israeli. This is unbelievable and unbelievable point congratulations view that's. Thanks I appreciate that you know being you outside a string it together you know Bob. But you were lucky nickel the other to make it that you know how it works. Well listen you yeah I will say this you know this I'm not I'm not saying this a make fun of you like China and the Boston the Boston accent you have. Is really really something we make fun out here on buffalo radio anyways so you've heard it. I have about the fact that I hope I can adopt. Ali I think you do yes you went on buffalo radio you do for sure we think they're not yeah pretty mild. Well we with outs that's good I'm speechless that's pretty thick then hey listen come. Patriots offseason man is all about Brady and what's going on right now or are you guys kind of shipping your attention just waiting to see what happens there. I I turned out glazed over like the rest of the pat. Country I was hot air fare over a year it lies but now I think everybody is ready to move on and stop there. A lot of apathy because it's within the coming eight supposedly I'd e.'s appeal court justices are going to decide. Whether or not to read their Brady's case if they don't you that they don't really hear it in like less than 1% of the cases. Get re carried. That they don't legal option is to appeal to the United States Supreme Court as ridiculous does that sound. So basically if the judges denied his appeal for Brady it over he's gonna tip for game. I can patriot bad that they practiced on being you don't get so much outrage in you know it's like being with. With the hope Brady thing. Everyone's watching it closely but I think there's a lot of apathy in just a lot of inevitability now that I don't miss the fourth poured into the season. In all of Boston sports history where is Roger Goodell rank on enemies of Boston sports fans. Number one in there is that even a Croat. That valley and you know he has they I'm holding me. Elie even even even higher than Bucky Dent. Spot not even close at 1001 brief time and that's not to get down. It enemy number one not even cause he had to get it police security threat I I police the security presence. At some holy name last year and I suspect that erupted take similar measures. Up that hears about it. Public enemy number one then again there isn't even cook but can play. So that it is there any inkling from the people you've talked to from the other media members out there that you follow on this stuff. And inkling of when we're gonna hear anything on the second Circuit Court here in their decision. I'd bet that guy supposedly hit in the coming days back as it usually takes between four to six weeks. This past week was weak side a lot of people thought we would get a year but. The within the coming days stopped or six weeks though we we will wait and beyond that a lot of waiting with the waited eighteen months that. OK you said that apologize together that this is going to be interesting because it does affect what happens with buffalo. The first four games were doing and are no cakewalk. And I know that they can win the games obviously would Brady what is the feeling about Jimmy grapple let's say we do have to see Jimmy drop below those first four games Alex. What's appealing up there knowing about them. Well we know the Arctic to sprinkle that magic ballots that Donovan the optical point out that followed up. Now on in other chemical output the total unknown now he really is and we haven't seen much of them at all. Little in the crease he's been a meaningless you know week that 17 regular evening game by. That it backdrop was not known product on the think it would get elect confident that he'll be at least competent. I can you Harken back to mapped out 20008. Regal Don weak one with the UCL injury copper lead the patriots in the Lebanon by beat than. I think people look at the about sex they look at the thick that the PGA dot. Without the called 2008 and the conventional wisdom here is that the patriots will be able to survive. Without Brady actually be tied three of their first four games of the season are at home so that really is in their favor as well. Well you know. The read here from buffalo is look if they if if Rex Ryan. Gets to game plan for Jimmy drop low people are pretty company your buffalo the bills can do something there obviously. Yeah I think should be I mean Rex Ryan in the bill always play the patriots that they owe it to try to team up against the top. But you know I I think with droplets quarterback doubt you really can't take. A win for granted so is it should be interesting. That's the sort but I think with grapple under that are the patriots become. I'm mentally more beat up all but the one thing I will say is I think the big story. The patriot sloppy. He's not got ignored with Brady in the op and that always is the defense you really that is the sense that now. Into an elite unit one began and they may be put the cut network in the first four weeks that even. They may opt to carry it a pristine that the offense which is a Qaeda Peyton what we've seen the the last you know twelve years. They'll get to that very interesting stuff let's talk about both sides of the ball here we got Alex Roemer on the line right now. He's a writer for Forbes Boston magazine also SB nation also contributes to The Herald radio up there. In Boston before I get to the actual personnel sides here tell me the sense of you know we always feel here in buffalo and I'm sure around the country people feel that. Patriots fans or should they feel like we're in Boston and they're kind of entitling don't know how good they have it because it's been so long. Since they really. Where bat is there a feeling of well we'll just always be good no matter what. And maybe. Is that I can invincibility that EE you shouldn't you should kind of be guarding against the people really don't understand that someday they're not going to be that good Alex. Are people totally ticket program itself there's no doubt I mean yet people think we can we drop a hundred that are. At the got a lot Marine One network you know the not even thinking quite that not even know even know there's not even. Much of the sample but what kinda quarterback. Jimmy drop well will be odd they got it totally a sense of entitlement around here but I think that got sore right when you make the playoffs. Odd though it's entitlement here no doubt they think that's inevitable given. Just how good he has been since 2001. Yeah I guess at some great. Even that you thought it was considered up like it's not even bother dobbs getting America the net that that we are here. To manage it well. It's amazing well at least initially stalled Jack cycle from him maybe maybe Jimmy V scene out who knows right. It is a powerful player covered a couple of in the hybrid really quick it with the pot and that. I got on the BU diet well Michael of course had a terrific yet he can put out the basement yourself. As the sabres went to the sabres down not that would not have been with a built around here I thought I'd we get with the theaters in Boston. Chris Hogan bills player who is now up in New England good for Chris I he's a really good guy I can fit in well in that community. But you know he's a guy that he did some nice things in the bills' offense but it's not an offense that is gonna be like the patriots it's hard throwing the ball and they certainly. Don't have Tom Brady is it is Tyrod Taylor was last year what's his role going to be in that Patriots offense what kind of impact anemic. Yeah when you look at coach in numbers I average that they got 3940 taxes. Over the last two years in pop allow. He's taking over yet they got the number three guy ideally behind Celine cattlemen. Behind PM EM in Dalai but you know we get to the the guild a little bit more gives Brady a bit of quicker target. But you know I think what a lot in your receivers to come to the patriot. The jury is out because it's only got to come here and for whatever reason. They ought to put out the offense and you know even a guy ME Amendola who had to restructure his deal down again for the second straight off these invite. Now Amador over the last couple years has. He slowly increase it in style with Tom Brady but it took some timing means very dear greedy living going up. And the second half of the season as a lot like the freeagent wide receivers who have come here and there are connected Brady early on so you look at Hogan's resonate. You know he's fit the prototype the ballots that I can do a lot of different things Korea plays special teams as well you know ballots that allowed the. Kind of football players but in terms of what kind of production you can expect from him again going not history it's hard to expect a break here widely. Fever in the system to really tell what Tom Brady outside of Randy Moss that the exception not the rule. Martellus Bennett tell me about what he's going to be able to do for that offense. I love about moved to validate prototypical ballot sect moved by low. I'd like Ella batted in and really poorly performance Chicago out but he stepped a year removed from in ninety perhaps even. He's gonna contract year I think like how bad it. At the looked export the tide and complement the rocker and how the the pages that dean and Aaron Hernandez. I've radian Bennett supposedly Qwikster really well and oh he is earlier this spring. I think like pellets attic could be huge contributor to the thought that patriot what the keypad and dock and since Hernandez decide to go like killing spree they happen pat I'm. A real export of weapon Mexican cows eat up like Michael Bennett is in the options that they really. And then one final thing in the office decide the running game I know Dion Lewis had the injury last year doesn't seem like they have a problem really fighting serviceable running backs but. Where they see that going this year touch on the offensive line if you well Alex. No not at the right now I think with the big weak point weak point last year in the AFC title game Brady got it more. Than any other quarterback in the league in points fifteen he just had no chance ought to be up at the line. I'm like the repeatedly stepping up its not even they didn't bring any new op at the line coach got it going Nacchio who. Actually is returning so with all of the new where a weapon at trade. I'm so yup and the wind should be a little more stable this year not Ella bully and beat the patriots thought they saw the one with the big one elect Scott but when you went out. The pat couldn't really recover up to that obviously something to watch and as a running back because you know beyond what led becoming a big contributor if not then. Not much in the running game but in the passing game is like a pretty but there's sort you know that sort through this sort out. The lake Scott can run over the you know run run side to side unit will what will we go out Lou it's really excelled at those. Ought to do the big Rotblat he's into the patriot very receiving ability. But the running back position at all you know Mike Furrey solid. It can't wait your quarterback and playing well he's playing I don't want him handing off the ball when he time again I really don't I wanna pop they're going. As much as possible he's your best players the bomb in his hand the running back is a very complementary role for the stop and buy. Again via Lewis breaks the mold because he was such a big factor. And the passing game for the first apple last year. Altria are Boston magazine SB nation Forbes and also The Herald radio up there in New England defense aside they trade away Chandler Jones. They get rid of dominate easily what are we looking at as far as the way the front seven looks for the patriots. Dominique easily streamed down about I think was the worst first contact ballot check that out with the patriots thought he was injured his Ricky you've been. Came on at that it's not like you. You may know the stock guys really thought he was now leaked out Strasser pro football focus those guys that. That a lot of kind things about him but from watching these games every week I don't think Easley would. But but not to allow you whether or not the Obama opted and then mysteriously get released to stop these and we get a nice piece in the globe with a smear campaign day out they're talking about just how I'm not not committed he was seen. The paparazzi was genuine but the ballot Jack wouldn't bite the system so. Easily with that would that we know it out you know eyes at present the top upon you lead actor. And his play out the door that was the strange one and the camera dumping it strange to I mean in theory that the Arctic profile because Jones will be freeagent. At the end of the eat than opt patriots have a lot of young defensive players today after you sign probably trending that for the money the patriots weren't going to react gallon. So I debt trading him you know get by your form now before you can get nothing went down the line is that the patriot model but the return in my opinion was awful. Mean you get that third and fourth front pec and Jonathan Cooper happy outburst Don peck with the patriots three week. Only to bring back so I understand pop up that the un Chandler Jones trade. At the very Belichick in moot if you well but the return was certainly let the dollar. Then finally the secondary how's that shaping up Alex. About Malcolm public doubt you know Malcolm Pollard on drought that guy I really turned into illegitimate. Number one corner last year I going one on one with a lot of wide receivers down the stretch and playing really well with slow decline on the other side. Up outlet is an interesting one to watch from the concert from a contractual standpoint. Because he's probably paying playing. The 600 land this year nothing and you can make the case it was a spot in the Bible players. On this team either them rumblings a couple of months ago used considering hoping he returned he didn't go to OTAs though in the kind of wish you lot see. When the media asked him about his you know elected unhappiness with this contract. Of course to get that extra Knick glad patriot skeptical all the while amateur public. At that and Anthony doesn't have a lot of leverage either he's restricted free agent next year by. I'm not completely in that secondary. Because he really could develop into number one corner but his contract is something to watch because a dike that with six and two grand part about a. Alex it's great seeing an all your success man you're on the right road I know you've known that for a long time and you're great young man I really am glad that we really do this tonight but more importantly I'm glad I've got an alien Hemmer I'm really really happy for everything you're doing man. They hit you've always been now or never needed it got in my practice so happy returned. I body will keep it going to end we'll probably see it down the road some point maybe sabres game bills game whatever like that anything you wanna come over grab some wings are right. But pulling them that now. I think a lot out appreciate it when I that is out three. 23 years old. I was doing. For those of you remember I did like podcasting and video streaming and stuff when I was down in Florida before I move back to buffalo and I was on this podcast network in here was this kid this young kid was doing this podcast and I'm like I was in pretty good what he did what what. It was twelve he was twelve actually at the time it was like fourteen. But couple years before that at the age of twelve he was on Jay Leno has like some sports broadcast prodigy. In theory is now right performs magazine I saw my and that MSNBC news the other night. Talking about somehow politics and sports and how athletes. Why they love politics are some that it was just insane so. They're gonna reach out and talk about the patriots I'm glad I did he's doing some really nice things that you could follow Alex on Twitter by the way I hope you get on the follow. Alex Roemer one amiga is actually Alex Roemer REI. And ER and then the number one take a quick timeout come back wrap up this hour and then we'll get back to your phone calls after that. On the job early show big interest thing on question tonight what bills acquisition. Were you completely wrong about. Well I told Kyle that he had a great opportunity to play with Jack or Ryan O'Reilly on the great sites all. He wasn't picking where either one he knows that Jackson trio where he raved about Ryan McCarty was to play against and use a complete 200 foot player and all the different adjectives that you is about the clearly grind so he was excited about both eyes. It's one buffalo writes one buffalo. So we're keeping updated today at what's going on with the sabres hockey team while we continue on the John Murphy show that was sabres general manager Tim Murray right there. Talk about Kyle post so who the sabres inked today to a seven year contract and to me really the top free agent actually available. On the market once Steven Stamkos science of the sabres got the top free agent on the market just like the bills and a few years ago Mario Williams. Although I think that was maybe the year that Peyton Manning was on the Mark Bryant was at the same time so maybe we were quibbling about that but you get a point. People are actually choosing buffalo as a destination which is great. And it's good to see. And how we play coverage on that Korea at WGR 550 dot com our flagship station.

And then you had a caddie eat your words because yet the at a pretty darn good career he was get. Give me 12 doesn't matter to anyone any side just one either way. Let's do it editorial by 5888.
