Dropped duke Williams brought up wide receiver competition let's bring those up whether good buddies out pot GO. He'll be on the sidelines covering the game tonight and on the are Murphy and Kelso. Solid us on the AT&T hotline and brought you buy outlet liquor when it's time to stock up you'll save every day an outlet liquor. Holistic pod she'll. How are you. I am doing fine how are you I went through the or real national game last night for China that that ballpark hole. Like I expect some lectures or pitch a gem so critical is that in Washington or in Baltimore where were you. There's a Washington. At the national park by but it great because it was a beltway game you know what I mean and done I'm telling you that the crowd had to be. 50% or if not more like cause Orioles could hurt a little right for a long time and yet there's lot for being here but. So there's a lot you know washingtonians. Who are stored as they would that it is pretty good game in the very nice park. I will be at Nationals Park on Thursday for the Bruce Springsteen concert I'm looking forward to. Are they go OK let's school they have a big league crane out Mike left field and because of some construction what I and the train the crane hangs like a down. And a quarter moon in the mood changes colors like red and roadway bu the looks like a real move and got to make sure you check out it's actually just according. Now listen as I'm going around DC next week if I drop your name. Is gonna get me into like the the trendy restaurants and stuff and maybe into the White House and stuff like that. It might get you in jail Erica I won't I won't mention your name the answer I appreciate the heads up. So do we know what the plan is for starters tonight offense defense any of that stuff. No it out right now I think you know it looked fluid I think they're probably still finalizing how much they wanna play everybody what you're the other thing I think that it's. Clue that the game goes on to wreck it spoke about how. He. He got in a conventional with what. Lot of people do a lot of coaches do a record preceding game technically means I don't have. Necessary blueprint that all of these guys have to play what happened that everybody treats it like a dress rehearsal we don't sort of think that. Gonna come down to. Each individual. How much he believes he needs. How may be how well that person might be playing or need to play lecture series or tutor. You know get some things down how the offense or defense playing at all judging by the first couple weeks. I I think they. We could probably just me my hunch now I think the defense we can expect to see almost almost half because I think they've been building up in the beginning and time out there. Whereas the offense you might probably see guys like maybe tyra does it all I don't know I don't think you'll see CME's Alpert vehicle perhaps. I doubt he'll maybe you won't see Richey or all have because you know you'll with a sore red ages came back you wanna make sure he doesn't re injure so it might be an individual base. When you're looking good look at it's out there is the if you had to pick one of the few units that would need more quote playing time to gel. It would certainly be defense I mean ever I know they've been a couple of Rangers on offense. But the defense that you know the injuries. That got to a rookie in adult as Washington's starting. You know you're trying to figure out Rex is scheme you're number two I think you can make a much stronger case for saying a cure or the offense if you wanna scale back a little bit but let's see what the defense can do. I agree the I think government. It's important and that's important and about the communication and you know what's going on on defense yeah absolutely with the injuries to these satellite you really gotta get these guys and their etiquette to get all of that balance. I think we've seen that the first two preceding game you know they they played. A little bit longer each one here I would be surprised if we see a majority of those guys play. Through the first half so you know but I offense I think you make your argument is usually what's funny about that Howard usually thinking offenses the one you want. They can alum I mean but not and that's not in this case right which is kind of interesting because. Yeah they're the wonder have to get canister at wide receivers and they cannot make serving messed our I called in the huddle but I agree with you I think in this case you're looking at the defense as the one that really need more time together. How long you think about like cells were this year honor AT&T hotline you have any questions about the bills. Thousand man eagle 30515. You can call in an ass out your question right now 8088550. To 550. How much do you think Sammy lots and Watkins will place like a series. But it. I would respect you got a little more than that. Maybe enough to get a couple passes. It's never going to be comedy you know they might not be easy targets. Quantity and equality and maybe okay like its not necessarily. A series or repeat it touches to a ball that for here is what they know what you've got some rhythm and you you know it took you took it karma it out if he plays. Two series and he doesn't get any ball thrown to home or your target to complete my single registered about they're good or. It's pastor Robert certain deal catching the ball at Lehman running against that anger. You know that that might be a situation like that talked about that's really on a per series let's watch and evasive. Yeah. Mean I'm Manny Lawson is going to play right. Yeah how many got Lleyton accused. Pre season debut and you know we as a great how many losses the story and starter right yeah yeah that's right I think it'll forget that because all the things that are. Pentagon out of everything has been swirling around at any loss until he's the starter we've not heard anything to the contrary by the legal team otherwise. What Sean Joseph Henderson he returned to practice this week what are the chances of him getting in there. You know I wonder if they Buick. What. It might be cool they might be a situation where you do wanna put him up there on the field may be the second half a little bit just to get some of those reps America. Could be really hot today you know it's in the ninety fives here during the days of the most seventies some at night in the air on the field of the year Carter. You know and I know that you'll come back from some like that how hard work I don't know that a factor and obviously they'll they'll. They want a monitor and make sure that he's starting everybody write everything that you wonder how the weather might accurate of that as well. I would expect him maybe to play a few played pretty big on first and perhaps just its. Just to get back into the group ripping the practice this past week but I would expect that you'll hold on a work out late next week is really that we pick and a work him out to make sure that he can use them. He can get more reps out there and get back in this. Is there any chance he could win the wreck I mean is the right tackle job done over solidified forget it. I think capacity for week one I got up. Now if you really start to play well and that they look like Peyton knows it is bodies where we need to be. Look at that that that's a weight off I don't know rookies. He made that at this physical out there but there's a different shingle out there every day Google all work and all that so I wouldn't. I wouldn't say the you know George mills is blocked in the circle C and obviously it didn't happen but. Maybe shock rocker worked his way but I would say per week one I can't see any really scenario short injury were Jordan doesn't start. I'm Sally as saying you know in terms of what you're watching tonight there's a couple things a wanna bring up wide receiver competition. We've we've talked about each week with few going into the games and coming out of the games. And you know yet now you have to factor in. Good wins concussion. We had already factored in Greg's dallas' injury as Lewis seemingly L has has not had a good camp is the door open for him now. Jarrett Boykin I I I wasn't thinking it was gonna make the team he's coming on so as we go into game three cell. Where are we at right now in the wide receiver battle what's changed. Who worked as an interest in one right they got there Ximian Robert Woods obviously you're number one and two we know that. And I still see them paying markets that when if you great depth chart out user number three guy able to distinguish him as frustrating Odeo BP can't come back another week. I think that you have to start having discussions of luck in your debut at number three when healthy but really it are we're if we're gonna have to release a guy that we lights. To keep a guy that could come back in and get hurt again you know that's such a risky proposition and I think he could be the kind of guy that goes literally from what the number. This duchess pretty much all or nothing and I guess what I'm saying outright leader that you did our number three Iraqi and because there's no in between what this guy be quite honestly. So. But I can't see. I can't get to they're gonna release of its can't leave it with a concussion he's had to go to the camp used to dynamic and what they wanted to do and really. He's been healthy all kept except for that last play recruit Elena. He got hurt I think investigate circular or three right there. Dallas could mean. I also real interest in direct mention that you had troubles and help each our current many had a hamster which you get. But he came back and hamstring cup play and practiced the other day he was targeted a heart. When he lined up on their very first play offense. It was gaming on the outside Greg Seles in the slot and the next play it was. Our marquee on the outside and what's in the spot that tells me that breaks out it's still a big part of their plans. I figured he's a big two minute guy for what they're gonna neither had a big third down guy I think Greg salas your number or their technically speaking you know however you want to label them. And then from there is really where the competition began and I gotta kinda I think Douglas is in trouble now just once the pat what the pats came on. He did he did not look anything like he did note he committed and maybe that's the kind of guy and player here and we're sure. I he dropped passes and hasn't made play you gotta make quite an able body like that. You play in the position you gotta be able to you know make plays is not done that would that opened the door for adding we've all seen Walt Apollo right he should be the guy that. Maybe is that guy walking through that spot now and contribute on special teams much more than that can't I think Greg Little another very good can't. In drops have plagued him throughout is career he might have had one day I think like you dropped the ball in a couple times. On the net a pretty solid and I think that the wildcard you're going to in the heat here or on the roster I think that depends on. Where you are other positions what you need special teams wise but it read it right now I think I would put does look to the outside looking. It's funny sell when you're talking about does Lewis. Matthew played the sound earlier from Rex Ryan. And I'm gonna I'm gonna create a term you're almost thinking is does Lewis being tankers and paying like you could you could see. After hackers had such a bad game and then what Rex said asked about anchors and you would've been surprised to know that shortly after that he was caught. And Rex was pretty critical of does little. He was a big differences though anchors and never got another shot that's gonna get a shot yeah it was shot and I play and and lucky you may make it out that the only step up and I love art he's out there he'll get maybe a few more reps. They're gonna give him a shot maybe you're in the red zone makes a big play in Rex is petticoat openly address. These gains mean company and the guys separate copy it practice is one thing in all the terrible things are watching his own and all that matters Rex Elliott. Element it'll say look I am a guy who won those like c'mon you've got to make plays. And maybe regardless does that help our cat and he'll get a shot and I. But short of him making a couple big place for them I just don't know how they keep them considering how really eat let's go to but nothing camp. Seles here on the AT&T hotline needle Treo 550 joyous couple of the topics when I go through cell. What now this guy is not fighting for spot but I saying a moment go if there's on the top my list of what I'd be watching for who I'd be focusing on. From needs duke Williams because that's a name that going into camp if you would have asked me or we would have talked about duke Williams I what is said I don't know if the guy makes the roster. Now he's having a good camp they seem pretty happy about what he's done now we're talking about a guy who. Could be starting in week one of Deron Williams doesn't get healthy. Had a long talk with duke Williams after practice one night last week then. You can just you can see in here in just. How observer. His demeanor. Has changed his attitude has changed about him and Rex has talked a lot about it I think it's true. Duke has always been kind of a guy that you he's young and out there and in the NFL it. They don't know the adamantly didn't take it seriously not let you know I think last year we started plummeting into the playbook is much into this way we wanted it cost them. He's unit of a player he really is a different attitude about it he'll be the first to tell you. The word professional came out of his own mouth and suddenly I had to learn how to be more professional. And he's been really get after it and learn position and I think he's had a very strong camp now. But equally is also the kind of guy that you know he's more of a box safety data center fielder so he could be on the field and someone could run a post pattern in my obediently they'll that's duke Williams. But I think it is long he's in the right spot in noses playbook they are I think that. He can he complain he can be part of this defense and that's what they're counting on for hammer out. But he really really has changed guys I I I commend them a lot for that but you know he had a purse like event and it dot mostly due. But I'll give I'll give credit to Ed Reed is well. Because Ed Reed has really I think help that secondary immensely. And every one of them to a man talk about how Ed Reed has taught them how to prepare. Prop them out of the professional look at duke or instead of being. I said what is it like having Ed Reed as your assistant coach. He lit up and said it's like having a cheat code and video. OK I like that that's in its but it's been a good way we don't sign up right cheating here's now because of the patriots at this is a good thing though. After everything about that that's how much they respect him because that's how much they said he knows that exceed is that you know we just have the knowledge and he's sending you this you prepare so well you'd. You know what's coming through so comparable to put. Okay south so. We are what are you watching tonight in your mind are there it and I think wide receiver would have been in that group we covered that in terms of guys fighting for spots or. Competition at a particular place what are you looking at tonight in game three. Villagers. Running back spot shaking up especially Alec callously as our lady and concussion protocol so. No what do you do it Reggie Bush you know how much were not part of the opposite I don't think regular troop number two I don't think. Now that we're gonna go on a week to week basis here in the regular season saying. Okay well all so much accomplished comically goes out already the number two I took it might illustrate but I think that there are aren't or which will be the the number two so to speak it based on. Game plan based upon lineup that you know they're facing and personal things like that. I think that interest and click here to this over the corporate Balaguer while the junior who did have a a better game last week who ran harder who has complained that specialty. I don't think that it's going to be tough for him and probably on the outside looking at a but I Rex seems like and they like the work that he puts an end. You know that that goes for something so that's an area that really averaged it and the other one is some you know what Tyrod out there to be honest with yet. But when it should be up and delightful. You know I mean I know Richie back. You know according Glenn had to come back yet let. Gays wanna make sure that those guys are doing everything is posted up they don't just say that they Arabic. I think just this time a year Prejean and three look now Tony Romo better last night anything can happen you just wanna make sure that the guys don't know their assignments and you know there they're doing everything it and that's not even come. I'm worried about the regular season point of view it's more like please don't get I record tonight that he. I did you read. Did you see the hat the cowboys highlights from last night. Don't watch that don't watch them beat it because that was yeah no. But but he was. Tony Romo played and I said I I I I reached the point this week right don't need Tyrod play in this game he's played a couple game Graham I'm good with that. So I'm I commend this morning a watch highlights Romo plays you know what happened in the last year back injury and all the time meanest and their season went completely south. He scrambles out of the pocket runs to his left he goes to slot I mean he's doing the right thing. And a Seattle player still tries to tackle him and hits him is upper body from behind as he's sliding down. Immediately. Roll mole grabs for his his back and he is down on the field in pain. And I am apparently it's not serious he went out he wanted to go back in the game they would let employees it and play the rest of the third. Of OK even worse I mean I had but I watched that I thought. I thought if I was a cowboy fan how terrified that moment would have made me and then my thought right after that which was really close to was. I don't wanna have that feeling with Tyrod Taylor tonight so don't. Now. I know you mean mad I actually think about Cuba. You know I Eckhard help also that when he was. What you guys yesterday if you try it I think it's very hard to go from. To get three weeks off and get out there have your read on the night. But because there's some value in having them go out there are so I agree we're all going to be trying to. You know had a lot to like you do horror movie would you handle your faith just like make sure that the search now don't run and they don't panic lot of all please don't do that right. I'm I think comes. I think. You just got to get through this game make yourself feel better but you know it's football and unfortunately those kind of things happen is hoped that you get out here and create an aggregate. One of the things are saying about Tyrod playing time at enough ticket at all be factored in that woody play or play even more than he might be cause. Karr dale Jones might not play it what what is his status that he played tonight or would he be with they just not playing good he's been out this week. Good question I don't know the player they had a sore shoulder a week so you know but. We duties played. You want to be like that doctors that are saying to me would you if you if you did one assay. Let's not played Tyrod then basically you got to say Vijay you're getting the whole game. And you do you address Tyrod I guess we. But we know they're gonna like right at me I mean I haven't I would think they would yes yes with the right so so but you're right I think as Mo and at least had to eat it would get a whole act and but yet maybe they'll they could still sit up BO RD only be a little better what I know that later lay out though but the interest I don't know how they're gonna handle that they only have two quarterbacks. On the roster at feet and made Cargill can't go to their three total so. And then what you do I mean look. There's always. And what happens if you don't something you do get banged up you know heeded and apparently is enough perfectly right what somebody in the back field who can take a shotgun snap. Start running and then in all the sudden every assailed what they're right in the wild cat every aspect airport at oh yeah what the answer to that would be. I don't need in the past is now 8030550. Jonas four let's now. You know I'd be going on his way Darnell here on WGR with salad down in DC go right ahead. I now I'm out cause the find out what moron would blend on can't he and that type candidate picked up last year do you think the carmaker can. He's about a leery. Nick O'Leary an equipment a guy. Yeah I disagree a burnout thank you very much because that was those were the two guys that we touch on that I wrote about squarely on the bubble really believe that there. We're kind of picky picky here practical leader he's probably better much better side that the that the that gronkowski is that the ball kind of right there on the bubble. And I think like a big game for both of them look here here's the thing if this is what it's gonna come out what they've forgotten right house. He is. Younger cheaper faster than Jerome Felton and you're like well then why wouldn't people well the reason why you wouldn't because broke open the back blocking fullback an NFL. And you know if you have lunch break out your back at that same. Blocking fullback but that doesn't mean it going to do the job here's the other thing yet effective they don't have a true power running back right now you know they they don't have a guy like Carlos Jonathan Williams might be. The guy they use their but he is different so no you who don't have spoken on the team. Then you know you lose some that's so. Then you maybe say well look they keep two fullbacks. Rex could not discount that because they like the way. Let Gradkowski playing that this visit is tough. A numbers game for any going to be he's gonna be that if you want it to produce three maybe it's tricky I would I don't cookie treatment are a lot so we'll see. Out before actually now because Marcellus you know obviously spend it doesn't help. So we'll see Rebecca as ours O'Leary's concern arming him. A data teletype. He got a lot of things well he does nothing exceptionally well and we know calculate the number one. They have Blake in and they really like is a really good big athlete they've Jim Dray would have really good blocker. Chris Gray who basically just really. Does everything probably even better than O'Leary does to be quite honestly viewing in its fourth year. I don't know how where it's been that if you if you release of you know but the guy that you're developing. And you know I think that they would like to have a younger titans in the system like that. That they can continue to develop I don't know where that goes with him that it's very interesting situation that I and. By mr. podshow enjoy yourself and well since it's supposed to be a hot day there in DC stay hydrated and on to cramping up on the sideline. I would do that and I were talking US guys early so we'll talk to the station I guess a little bit later today and Matthew. Be safe congratulations. Have fun out there and will catch up down the road maybe and that brand spanking new stadium or something when the bills that the like it you know a couple years. Well thank you very much now and I wish you to be on the sideline for the playoffs this year that's what I wanna sell. Thank you that you're hurting which for me that incidents like that it does. You're your your wish ring through for many hundreds of thousands people like there was much your question in your worst all of them as well. Yeah but specifically for you sell because I know that offers ball would be cool but I also know how much you would enjoy. I would I would that be pretty cool let's enjoy Minnesota and you know be safe and I'm sure will result in on the road. I think want to sell this on the AT&T hotline brought you buy outlet liquor when it's time to stock populous and every day an outlet liquor Matthew from your mouth. To the football deities years please eagle 30550. Yards you know. Chances of Sao being on the silent replace it will be better if Tyrod doesn't get hurt I wanna read a tweet about pre season. Playing time. And what to do not to do with guys when it comes to wearing about injuries we'll get to that in a moment 80305 chip to join us it is football Friday on WG. WGR Sports Radio 550 and WG ER 515 dot com. As football tonight for the Buffalo Bills pre season game number three of four. In the nation's capital take on Washington. We are expecting the pre season debut for Sammy Watkins and Manny Lawson as well. We will have you covered here on WGR 5 o'clock pregame show my joke in the Bulldog. At 730. It is kick off from FedEx Field and then after the game by all means we invite you talk about it on Apple's game show with that your last night. In the pre season couple teams got to scares Dallas saw Tony Romo go down and grabbed his back. He left the game against the Seattle Seahawks did not return but apparently it is not a serious injury same deal for Julio Jones the falcons receiver. Went down hard after going up for a ball and it tangled with a defense of player he has an ankle injury did not return but the falcons say they don't think it is serious either a couple of things in hockey from yesterday loss and kraus for a first round pick and David Poland traded to Arizona. For the Florida Panthers they get to second and third round pick basically making some cap space you wonder what that might be for. If that's for another move that's coming for Florida or just for the future also the Rangers signing paraded period one year contract. One point one million. That may be the best signing of the off seized. I now I gotta crash about Florida let me finish up the headlines here. In baseball the jays the Orioles the Red Sox all lost yesterday the Mets beat the cards the bison lost their back their final homestand. Of the season that begins tonight where they Friday night bash those should be your sports headline the next update coming up at 9 o'clock. Thing on. As it's getting ready beyond. Nice touch. That's all I feel right. That's you playing them but yeah finer moments that he remembers of this three year tenure produced in the morning so that's a pretty good line that's where press count it it was. I have enjoyed all of Rex Ryan's and takes and it Monica home antics because that is negative connotation to it. I have enjoyed the climbs and how men I've enjoyed the quotes I have had lots of fun following Rex Ryan. And because I understand Mike Zimmer I don't know what I'm just I obviously I don't know what Zelda about Mike Zimmer but I would tell you I thought. He had one of the funniest lines when what was it a couple weeks ago when he didn't play Bridgewater that is asking all timer and that is the great it was that he's the greatest kid in life. Or something in his first wife his greatest pride is in life great like why did you plan because like that. Everybody has said that I should not expect Rex Ryan like oppressors. In Minnesota so I will miss them you know what I am also the thing about Rex Ryan that is never pointed out because. And people like to say always said he won the offseason and and he said bills are going to the playoffs he put Clemson helmet on. Yeah I mean all of that yes. But on the day to day basis. The one thing that Rex Ryan doesn't Rex Ryan is a huge NFL celebrity right and it doesn't mean he's the greatest coach it just means that. Everyone knows who he is on ESPN whenever that any time he's asked the question those press conferences. It seems to me that he answers it wind either some level of sincerity. Button never. Are at least I don't hear often. Condescension. Which it is the most agitating to me. And we Doug camera owner when you're dealing with a coach and you're asking questions and Maroney is rolling his eyes and being just blatantly disrespectful. To the questions and look this media gives coaches and players reason to be disrespectful sometimes. But Rex takes it in stride I mean sometimes it'll be. You know one of those days where it's anything and everything to get a and a snapple little bit. And yet whether it's talking about the third string senator or whether it's talking about why the defense didn't succeed. It to me he just is never talking down to you which IE I mean maybe you don't deserve a gold star for that everybody should be like that but. I think that that's one of the things that people don't realize about him is that. You know they they focus on those things. But when he's answering questions I find to be very respectful and his answers and and probably as honest as he could be it. I think for the most part I think the only you know Matthew I think if there was one time where I could sense. An Oprah was. Condescending. But it irritability. Because they think he's he seems like a guy can pretty much roll with the punches. And I think you know. If you're him and you had that personality. There's no filter we know that and I think you have to know if you're going to be that person. There's going to be a lot of stuff lion jackass too because of that you know you're gonna make all the guarantees and in the bracket notional that you have to expect that he doesn't work out you're gonna get nailed for. The only time I would say it was. Think either. Maybe in December last year right after the season ended you could you could definitely feel the irritability being asked about the defense because they were like I think he felt. There are beginning to say essentially defensive genius what the heck happened with your defense. And and he would throw the old. You know check my track record this has never happened before Warren. Boy you're right I'm in at Soledad tea I've only had top ten defense it's everybody here in my life you can sense it was getting to him at that point at the closest thing I would. Says that I've heard from him I think that people take a lot of pot shots at him because they nailed that. Rex Ryan to click machine. And then anything to go with Rex Ryan is going to be popular. And it's also just like it's like nickel back jokes Jerry brings up sometimes it's just the same joke that everybody makes is the tough. One the offseason right Hoffman and yeah okay I mean it was a really not even in context but it doesn't matter 'cause you're joking about. You're picking on Rex that's like the thing to do and if you're him. And I can't imagine myself. With that with the number of pot shots that are taken are unfair jabs or just things that are. Inaccurate about them. And he's able to continue goal all along and be all right I mean I guess maybe. Coming from the New York media. And where they're talking about his relationship with his wife and also I'm eager to be right it's all going away it's on the front cover of the newspaper like the New York Post up sports section. Front cover of the whole paper going waved to the point of a ridiculous this where a huge probably shouldn't even go. I'm journalistically as a way that was meant what he came from to hear some people just taking jabs at them and they keep probably rules with that. But you know I'll miss that about racks and I don't know if he's going to be able turnaround the defense as I sort of look at this thing and try to figure out how it's gonna go. Turning around defense defense of history it's always tricky and it you know I mean a lot of it had to do last year with. Injuries and Mario Williams deciding he just didn't feel like playing anymore for awhile and you know I just. I couldn't tell yet but I would say Rex probably shouldn't. Probably shouldn't pay in his entire identity. Around defense in a league that is built for everybody to succeed offensively yeah he wants to be good at it it's part of his name and why he got here so I get it. It's just. You have an offense they can get you to playoffs. And I think that's when he inching discussions remind me I'm gonna get that the tweet about tyra two before you go to segment. I think it's one of the instant things about Rex. And when he first came in and you know the whole Shamir you know you displayed as is this thing on its whereabouts not to be on whatever. Ground and pound titles that you talked about the day about running the football and you hear from a coaching you think. It's it is this like 1987. Or something or 88 I give me this is a passing league. I I wondered over the course of the season. Him Greg Roman analyze you know they're running the ball they always talk about Rodney talk about rentable again this off season. If they truly believe that wharf Rex thinks that laws. At least as head coach I'd have to go back and check. This is where instant Tribune would be fun but I'm not gonna do go back and checked The Who were the quarterbacks when he was in Baltimore working on the defensive side of the football not at. Great list of quarterbacks once looked up real quick. In New York clearly yet Mark Sanchez saw his offense in New York never had a legitimate quarterback. Also I always wondered if that he truly believe that the G truly believe. The old school defense wins championships. Or does he believe that because if you look at the quarterbacks he's been around on T injury he's worked. He hasn't had as he who's the best quarterback. Bills. Jets ravens assistant coach it's Tyrod Taylor is the best quarterback of his entire NFL career and not just as head coach. I'm throwing in his years in Baltimore when he worked for Bellic. Who's the best in his Tyrod there's no. OK so does Kyle Fuller. Jeff Blake Elvis girl back Tony banks. So that's art Sanchez's Kellen Clemens that she truly believe defense wins championships or does she believe that and coached that way because. He's never had. And a legitimate franchise quarterback in I'd I mean I think that has to be it it's kind of amazing that a guy would still we can have a head coaching job in the lead after her involve having so many airport quarterbacks. Maybe we'll see. But about is gonna I think it's but I think he leaves it entirely to Greg Roman I don't think he's gonna have a lot to do with the offense I think it's going to be. Whether or Greg Roman believes enough in Tyrod Taylor it's funny how things can change in an off season you know how we get to the end of the college season. And then all of a sudden a quarterback we've never heard of gets drafted fifth overall or something I even come from. Or Teddy Bridgewater magically drops from I don't know how to pick last what do watched it was portals at central floor it's a little like that with Tyrod Taylor at the end of last season. We heard you know maybe some people in the bills' organization who believe in him and we were sitting here having conversations like. I think it's okay but I'm not sure it's good enough to win the Super Bowl and then we've gotten this year. And I think there's plenty of off season evidence to suggest that he's getting more comfortable quarterback. And all the sudden we're talking about Tyrod Taylor like. Hey this is the best quarterback he's ever had in the guy the key gauge of the playoffs and it's funny to I don't think it's wrong. Because they were twelfth in the league in points last year offensively. And yet a decent season is just the conversation is changed now that we've gotten. You know and another offseason of Tyrod tale. Sosa does exchange two I think that's one of the story lines of the season now again it's not Rex is offense Greg Romans offense but he Rex Ryan is still the head coach in his. Philosophy of what he wants will trickle down to his coordinator. And I I think it's not gone back to help but wreck Rex and his defense of thinking. He's he's going to be a defense minded guy he grew up in that kind of family first of all his father built there a reputation in the National Football League. Help on defense the Chicago Bears your bubble team being. You know that the peak of his father's career defensively but but he can he came from a background. Where his dad all was all about defense so it trickles down to Rex Ryan's so I understand the defense of thinking on it and also Matthew think that way because again. Look at the list of quarterbacks so I Rex Ryan. And I'm seeing these quarterbacks over my long NFL career and I'm thinking OK I know likened to a have a really good defense top ten defense consistently. You could give me Mark Sanchez or Trent Dilfer or whatever I have to go through the whole list and we just about anybody and I'll compete. So that that's another reason why he thinks the way he does a defense wins championships. Not everybody gets a franchise quarterback if I have a really good defense I'm competing I've got a chance every year regardless of who my quarterback it. Real quick Roy three today and about Tyrod whether the plan it grows it grows exhausting always explaining why game action is important. He can't put a bubble around these guys. I understand. But and I treated back. Yes I believe there's a dot I do believe there's a value to game action I sat here and said I would've played Tyrod in game one a would have played him in game two he got some game action he looks good. He does need apply. To the point about the value of game action and and its importance it was so important. The starters in the first pre season game typically play one series right Tyrod I think got three snaps couple handoff one tests done. So if it's that important why they play cameo appearance in game one and they don't play the starters at all. In game four the main starters for short won't even see the field in game four they play a quarter in game two. Typically a half in game three and that's the most playing time they get so it's important gay game action what happens in game one in game four. 8030550. Join us 88550 Q 550.

Have to say something I got a I got an hour right we're gonna saying nice stuff about Matthew Jeremy answer we're gonna say nice that the the end of the show I only came in for him to say nice things about me I think that's only invited you in for buddy nix. No I've got the body knicks game the Minnesota themed buddy knicks game I did bring an inspirational quote I thought at some point he would play this okay. And go get them. You know. One for the tip our rights and here's my inspirational quote for Matthew. As he as you weeks. I guess it's going to have to hurt. I guess I'm going to have to cry. And let go of some things I've love to get to the other side. I guess it's going to break me down. Like fallen when you try to fly. Sad but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life. Starts with good byes. Carrie Underwood now you know eyes one now felt like she could really. Nothing quite touches you like Carrie Underwood if you need a quote after the agent emotion. Carrie Underwood is always where you were Google search I mean body ages carry on to word Underwood. I don't know whether to laugh or cry remember when Derek Roy got hot for Edmonton. I. There was great great yeah you miss the tank all man when Mike Webber took that penalty against Arizona. You know what first Niagara center this is the great thing about Matthew if the wild end up doing. You'll be the first person I think in history humans have two tanks into separate cities which you can even enjoyed anymore. They've ruined it yet you can't even enjoy that mr. Michael he's doing dad exchange July and in Toronto they successfully did it but they got lucky to get the ultimate prize so I'm not a nature of they had fun. We actually had some fun. Which was another reason that that famous but not the not that is that rant was just like. Yeah out trust me so are legitimately enjoying it in this Minnesota Wild tiger and right. With what was it a seven nothing game or something that's when the red ones and why isn't something that's right they lost seven to nothing and people wanted to to look back. That's why. And I don't think I've ever been so on edge as a lot of those games mean I'm on vacation for the caves game. Following it on Twitter like all of my gosh they're going to be shocked fog all of all the teams and then just seeing the flood of tweets about Toews scoring. And I mean there's so many moments they had to go into it because it end up. Becoming or a razor thin margin to win the tank I remember I believe there would have been a weekend we had gone to see Jonathan at Michigan State. I'm sitting in my hotel room watching on game senator thanks to your password. And yelling and screaming while my wife is just. Is this plan. You don't know what's gonna be fun is someone should do this when we ultimately get our next producer wherever that might be I don't know how good they'll be as compared you bought. Can't carry you or are we should have someone and compile the win loss records of the teams during all their producer ship because I got news I think you're in dead last now he's got along. As for sabres but I might be first for bill or bills you have actually might have the best bill's record right 78. Yeah it's six in ten. That is the best bill's record for erotic and I'm guessing Hager might have the best sabres record. 060705066. Or seven with some of their. Zones all right I just a point now speaking of how good the next partners will be that the bills had Jim Kelly and then. After that. I just staying down sometime sixteen year drought a Marty would passes and trying to get Hager back because he's good luck for the same time you attack on going to be the next guy and it just work so as much as I despise you. Fifteen years from now I'll look back and oh boy the day Matthew left at all went downhill. You know. One thing I can say about Mathieu the people don't know. All our producers ever he's the one that swears that you the most well. Nobody else nobody else worth at me right everybody was nice. To me until he showed up easily the people that I'm kidding not legitimately now. Consistently I'll pair she probably pop. Yeah Matthew what are the next segment how about you drop dead right exactly I wanna go on through the policeman and a as I don't object what else is ever done that my favorite was always. Howard it's a very. Matthew. Could you grab an air check that for sale via a which don't tell me how to do my nearly got up. Our fair Matthew listen what we do we've been on the divorce how are you just bleep off you know. Every day it and I maintain it every time there's no subtlety to it it's the right need. Won the right yeah yeah. Yeah that's why I need an hour to come up with something to say about it I want to phrase it the right way to be carrier and all right so. I Jeremy what's the plan here. Final hour format you got a buddy nix I've got to but it makes game. Go to bass Minnesota the Minnesota all Minnesota well that's why you said not to do read up on minutes. Oh yeah I don't mean to you a Minnesota it's all based on Minnesota. You've talked all morning I have not been listening I'm sorry bin amongst moving painting and doing all that sort of stuff. And probably smell like I didn't miss any thing I'm probably not. Again a Saturday mornings ultimately. It's on hero what's generals and he's apparently he's okay right on well with Julio Jones status apparently it's not serious.
