Reporter Joseph what's. Or in a row. First time since 2008. Four for four that is not the menu choice that your local. Fast through drive through those with the Buffalo Bills have done. Here the last month of the season. To get back to four and two. Starting the year oh into an amazing turnaround really. Capped off with a exclamation point yesterday at new air field. 45 to six team. Over the Siebert Cisco 49ers welcoming the extra points short when I'm sell about GO here on the beautiful. One buffalo studio set. Subtle cast on MSG networks and of course under the age your Sports Radio pipe it to your flagship station for Buffalo Bills radio. Yesterday the bills did what they're supposed to do. They beat a team it's not as good as them and really one of the lesser. Slash worst teams in the NFL. And they did it convincing fashion just like you would hope they would because that's what good teams are supposed to do took awhile to get there it wasn't always. Where you want it to be but that's why you play a full four quarters at the end of the fourth quarter the score read bills 45 of the niners sixteen. How ironic was it is ironic the right word coincidental. And I get some literary people are gonna come at me about this but how was it that so ironic coincidental whatever the word when he used the last time these two teams played I thought was one of the most. One of the worst bills performances the most embarrassing performances. Throughout the entire playoff drought in savored Cisco when the niners scored 45 on the bills and they had over 300 yards rushing in that game. What a difference for years makes it's been four years since then. It would Disco comes the Buffalo. Bills do the same thing to them 45 points that put on the board. They run for over 300 yards that's the story in this one where this running game is right now. Other when he gains with this formula it's a formula for success right now and I'm sure. A lot of you are still questioning whether it's gonna be a formula for success going forward when they have to play teams. That aren't the Saber Cisco 49ers that aren't. The Los Angeles rams I'm sure that's gonna be a big question on everybody's mind but for now they're living in this born to world that's a good place to live. Two good place to be. After Owen to do to get back to pour in to. To be right now in a playoff spot if the season ended today of course it does appear to be at that spot when bill skins look and they see the standings. And I tweeted out the city this morning already on my Twitter feed at sells sports by the way you want to jump on Twitter. I tweet of the standings out this morning. And. The bills are. In the seventh I'm sorry the six playoff spot. That's nice to see there's a lot of football to be played there's still some tough games in the schedule. But I challenge anyone to look at the schedule tell me how they can't get to ten when they can't they can get to ten wins. That's what it's gonna take in their you know what let the chips fall they may be get the ten wins and you lose out a tiebreaker that's gonna state. But that's what the goal is get to the playoffs and right now. This team is playing like a playoff team should play like a good team should play they're beating teams like San Francisco. The way they should. A one and fourteen supplies from West Coast East Coast across the country. It wasn't perfect yesterday by any stretch. And we'll get into some of the things that maybe need to be improved upon as this team goes down to Miami next. He very very big road game against the divisional opponent. In that game if the patriots looms large in two weeks right here at new air field. So we'll get an all that. But there's a lot of really really good stuff to get to from yesterday's game check out my Errol up arrow down the big picture column at WGR 550 got Tommy can check that out. By going online. I struggled to find some arrows down in this one I did. But they're a couple we'll get into those as this program rolls out money throughout the phone number 2803055888. 550. Q 515 to jump on the extra point show here. I WGR NM SG networks out of pot she'll along with you Annie Buffalo Bills football Monday. Way things just go a little bit smoother around Western New York when the bills win especially. When they went border row 2008. The last time this team did that that's before. Eric would. Was even on this team that's a long ago this was Eric was rookie year was 2009. Preston brown told me was it in like junior high or high school. The last time that happened forty winning streaks are easy to come by the National Football League I don't care who you play I don't care how good you are. They're not easy to come by. You take them. You filed the way you stack those winds remember a week what three weeks ago OK got to win a can expect another one. To get a start stacking wins here. That's what that to people talk about all the time this is stacking wins they've stacked a bunch of wins together now. And that's where they are. Now after the dolphins beat the Steelers handily. Down in South Florida yesterday. I'm sure while looking at that game thinking OK let it not be a trap game for the Buffalo Bills because that can very well happen that is a tougher opponent. Right now that seem like it might then just 24 hours ago. But the way the bills are running the ball. In the fact that Miami is also. Very bad. In the rankings stopping the run they're now actually they were the worst team in the league going in the yesterday and now the second worst team the only the worst Syverson is going after yesterday's performance. They've kind of jumped them. In that regard. The bills just need to keep doing what they're doing. They need to have that formula work again for another week because that's the formula that's working. And they have the match up to allow that formula to work. Give Rex Ryan credit. He deserves it along with the rest of the staff. Because whenever one else got this team out only two he made a controversial change he stuck his convictions. And it continues. To pay off. And his players continued through that tough time. To get to work in to fight through what they had and now we see the results. I know many do you believe that the way the girls are winning and running the ball as well they are and playing a solid defense and limited passing game that's efficient enough to manage the game. Is it a formula for sustainable success. For the entire season. But as I've said here for the last few weeks. You keep using that formula I don't week to week basis because that's what it takes to win that particular game and then you make adjustments according to the opponent you have in the next game. So maybe now we may not think that you can win like this ten or eleven times using this formula. But I sure exactly you can wicket win in a week to week basis no matter who you're playing adjusting that formula just slightly if you have to. I think that's where we are right now. Is it doesn't matter. At the end of a sixty minute football game how you win all the matters is what the scoreboard says the scoreboard says in this 145 to sixteen and it doesn't matter at the end of the season. How many wins are how how you got the number of wins you have it only matters how many wins you have. No one checks you at the door. And says hey did you run the ball too much to get to ten wins did you have a just an efficient or passing game. To only have those five or six losses sorry you don't get in the playoffs that's how it works in the sleek and how it works in any league. You just have to win enough. And right now foreign to. Looks like. It's on the road to maybe being good enough but there's a lot of work to do. Yesterday. This team. Stuck with a formula that works did exactly what they're supposed to do it started with the running game. The first time since 1992. The Buffalo Bills ran for over 300 yards a contest. And it starts with LeSean McCoy. You're watching the TV side that man right there. What a tremendous game for him. In his eight year career this was the tenth most rushing yards he ever had a game. You know 140 total. He had a 106. At halftime. He's averaging. Eight finish a game I should say it was seven point four yards a carry. Once again he made gains of what it looked like it was going to be nothing. He may defenders looks silly in the hole. Here's running back. That is yet to carry the ball more than nineteen times in any game this year and yet he's second currently in the NFL in rushing. By the way the three touchdowns you scored a career high. Tied her to the times that he did it when he was in Philadelphia. Of course it came with a bunch of during the game right thriller Sean. 70000 people gone. Oh. He was on the ground he was writing campaign he took office helmet. And I'm Italian I am the first person. To say to people. When guys get injured no matter who it is on the first person to jump on Hank. That's why have a team that's why you have coaches it's like you have a back up plan that's why you have. Roster will be the U coaching you practice and you rapidly prepare in eagle out any key point I'm the first person to tell you that and the first person to tell you I know that there are injuries. Staked to star players are good players. But yet over Colin as a sports you can do that even though I am the first person to say that I'm here to tell you right now that when he was on the ground in the game yesterday. Same thought went through my head that many of you. Season's over no way you can live without which on the point Steve. I thought that it I'm the last person to ever think that. That is how good he is that is how well he's playing he's playing at an MVP type level right now. When LeSean McCoy met when LeSean McCoy is healthy as he is now. The Buffalo Bills are as lethal. As any team has been in recent years in this league running the football. And I believe the buy look right now on the check the exact stats right now I believe the builds as of yesterday's game. Now have surpassed. Yes there are headed Dallas in Tennessee now they are the number one team in the league running the football a 166. Yards a game more than that. Lashed the bills led the league with a 15366. Right now. They were going into this game averaging over a 170 or to give the go 173. Over the last four and if they had 300 yards rushing. An amazing statistic. But coinciding with that is also the extended usage. And the larger usage. A drone Felton. This guy has been tremendous through the last four games can remember back. When Jerome Felton was cut let's think about that for a second. I believe that was. Grand plan to try and save some money where they thought they gigabyte per week it didn't necessarily work out. They knew they wanted to bring Jerome back to the didn't have to guaranteed salary. But they didn't get by that one week without on any needed on and now here we are five weeks later. An offensive coordinator change later he's getting a lot more time on the field he's blocking his rear Randolph for LeSean McCoy. And it's showing. On the field in the statistics. In the score column not necessarily in any count on the Jerome Felton shows up by and maybe they should have a separate column for him. Maybe like. Guys blown up in the hole. Lead blocks for touchdowns because he would be near the league lead for that. 803055888552. Pipe that. I wanna get your thoughts on yesterday's game I wanna get your thoughts on going forward with this team and my big question that I I do you wanna know from fans are today. Funny how much do you believe in this team right now how much do you believe in this team right now because we don't know the elephant in the room right the elephant in the room is the New England Patriots in two weeks. Is that. Holding back here it's enthusiasm for where this team can go to you really need to see that before you can only by Ian. Our thirty bought it and they K that's that's that's a tough game but this is a good team and and if they lose that game. They lose that game because that's what your record going to feed initially. And Marty body and. Are you tempered and waiting for them to be New England beat Natalia. It's not the beat Miami before you even get to New England to have that opportunity if that's the case. Does it take that game to convince you where are you with this team how much do you believe in what this team is doing right now. The formula for success that they have. I think before I take a call I think I'd be remiss. The I didn't bring up. I like Tyrod Taylor's game yesterday I I don't. I don't think he was bad in any regard I think he missed one play was Charles clay in the end zone early on and they know they they wanna. Scoring anyway but. I like Tara to a gain yesterday he was efficient he was seventeen of 2679. Yards two touchdowns no interceptions. He made plays at his legs not just running the ball by the way where he did have a hunter he did have 68 yards on eight carries. You also make plays with his legs when he scrambled around kept his eyes downfield a few times. So even though we talk about the formula for success in the we talk about a limited passing game efficiency. Might that might be kind of not doing tyra to adjust this this morning after a good game he played well yesterday I thought. Where there's some things he'd do better I think yes you can always have that from everybody right. But he was efficient the receivers did their job yesterday as opposed to last week where I thought that young they dropped some balls on him. So I think that when we talk about efficiency of the passing game when their passing game what ever. At least we should recognize. To immediately start right Taylor put it yesterday I like to gain yesterday. Our let's got to the phone lines right now we'll go to Greg in Rochester Greg you are first up on the extra point show what's going. Well I do and I'll bet to gain yesterday it was a beautiful day you know they're expecting rain but it it was a beautiful paper spoke on the bill showed how Greg got a few spots on the offense. First look at national radio today everybody give a lot to. The Kia Alia. And the cowboys offensive line time your not a rookie the year MVP talk and I look at shady and our offensive line. Compared dale and air offensive line and we're two batters getting forty EZ go 200 some yards reads something like eighty care behind in the key element in you know start per play and knock. He has Uggla Shawn McCoy has the highest yards per carry if any regular running back he's actually over half yard more than Ezekiel Alia I don't wanna take anything away from. Ezekiel Alley he deserves rookie of the year he deserves the praise but you're right LeSean McCoy had a flying under the radar because of that story. Yeah are sure and then it although although I'm gonna have you been amazing to hear and you're right when UN when he was hurt. You know you'd think that users over and that my next point you know my thing on Tyrod Taylor his contract I think he could be tapped in for more articulate and a different offense than they were asking him to do more. You know they are I'd I'd fully believe he'd be capable of putting out the 20250. Yards you probably you'll hear that it will go up maybe we wouldn't be winning. But you know they can do it they want it but. They're they don't need to rent a 300 yards it would working request that you open the way street we've been getting weaker when you get Lee break your strength and our strengths are we know we can run the ball. I'll protect the ball and play defense. And and so that's why you are human Tyrod a little bit of Apache shot a little bit more they're going to be gave we're gonna need to do a little bit more. We're making big plays guard your result in an extended drives. And now. And you also look I inherited. What blew the game with a formula before we blame blame him because its air and in the path mart we probably could particular fourth quarter net games maybe you've got the picky aren't the typical daily numbers look that much better so. Not I hear I hear you Greg thanks I appreciate the phone call I appreciate the points I think you're right that where you know gas and do more maybe. He would have bigger numbers but I think we all got in the world is waiting in the war in the in the weeks to see that happen there's no doubt. Yet but it was pretty good yesterday but it was pretty good yesterday. But he didn't he doesn't you to runners having an error this not a lot but you don't need to in. I'm searching for. The word here and they have found it it's. Greg what you're bringing up is what Rex right talks about coaches always talk about which is complementary football all right and do with a finger quotes up here if you're on the TV side. Complementary football and. That's what they're playing right now. That's what it means complementary football means. Okay we know our defense is doing this so how do we. Compliment them of the offense that we don't have to what take all these risks and throw the ball 300 yards. We can throw the ball for 300 yards and that's rare but we can run the ball for 20250 yards. We're gonna win this game because we know our defense is gonna be and put us a position to have to score thirty points so far that is work so that's the formula. And they're gonna stick with that formula I think they should you do what it takes to win any game at any level in any lead any sport you do what it takes to win. I mean. The Minnesota Vikings right now. Had a horrible horrible running third and last in the league running the football. They lost major Peterson they lost Teddy Bridgewater Akira the baucus what their five I don't know why because they keep playing defense. Don't think it was gonna care if they make the play Austin Minnesota. Using that formula nor should you care in buffalo no matter what the formulas Nazi a lot of you do that. I understand. Wanted to see more out of it but it doesn't matter as always you win that's what counts Jerry can more Gerri you're on the extra point show. Hate our good thank you. You're still an uphill battle you know you look at the schedule. Sure I get excited about the game but we circle and bought it we gotta win the game because that little distractions extremely. You know. They can't lose by Courtney that used to have Seattle the wiggled. You know if you split with the dolphins were culpable or what we've apt. Cincinnati at Oakland I mean it and that that. Watching the port on the team. You think you're going to be. You know and and and probably somebody like Eric Eric thought right now to look like one of those ones that is about the pride. You know you know what they haven't quite I'll let you know. I. You can't control that he can't control that it can only plays and Friday can only play the teams that are however they're playing that's what matters meanwhile. Ben Roethlisberger is out next week for the New England Patriots normally I would say hey they might give him a fight I mean what he's supposed to do knowing exactly that during the second say hey by the way. You know what it does it doesn't count as much they're gonna while they're probably roll them and that's what happened. I agree that why you're crash or Reggie Bush. All of you know obviously the running game extremely healthy he would insurance when you know when now. We had done the Carlos Williams at it and you know it. It may be trying to utilized in more in the early mccreery did play as a wide out awhile and obviously that's what we're deficient right now or. Well I I think you're the problem is I mean why he needs to be another they're they have this formula for success it's working. I don't think it's that they're not mean I know and understand their under handed a wide receiver I get that the tail portion of that particular aspect of the roster but I don't think you need to right now I would be surprised. Reggie Bush becomes one of these guys that gets released upon the activation of a Jack Lawson or someone else and I'm telling it's gonna happen I don't know that it's not like inside info. But they're just not using a much Mike Gillis sleazy guy that need to be on the field more than him. He does Morley touches the ball so I just don't know why you have to do something like that you have LeSean McCoy he's a passing game. That's where I CA I ideas I don't. Reggie Bush the the question is about Reggie Bush when the team was only two I think we're much more legitimate now that they are when the team has sworn to. I don't care that he's not playing. Means it is he occupier roster spot for someone that's gonna come back maybe I don't know we'll see I don't care that Reggie Bush is a player touching the ball they're winning games they don't need to and to. What does it matter. I mean I it's a curious thing that he's there. And they're not using him but you know there are guys on the roster a lot of times they don't play a lot. I don't see Jonathan Meeks played a lot of safety he gets out there he plays special teams. He's he's a contributor I'm using it as an example there's probably someone else that is offensive linemen that that they are old law. Isn't playing mean you know guys are on the roster sometimes it don't play there's 53 guys 46 active on game day. So I'm not too concerned about why Reggie Bush is in play now really care because they're winning games are running for 300 yards let's go to JP in South Florida what's up JP. And thanks wanted more productive policy. So far or. Street here is our. It is. Well being are all up to date on all. An absolutely key. For me. You don't get people out there or are they where it all he can be flash. Compare. And also the target really enjoy. It goes way. All of on the Iraq in the I would agree with 100%. With playing decayed. Mean all formula at the scene that trauma or that exact and that's how we look at herein are. Jeremy. Early show about all that old I rod. Not a good. But one of the more you are Mike really. Well I'll be right. You know look at the trade Gephardt. That he get a back and look at backtrack. All that it on the on the sideline it will probably be probably the ball this year in. The. Well here here's the thing I understand you Palin or Jefferson I understand the point that Jeremy whoever might make who says. Look at your only gonna give me an efficient game manager I can't justify paying seventy million dollars in my cap beat it takes away from other things because. By definition an efficient game manager means you need other parts to contribute better. And you're taking away your ability through a salary cap structure that you kick there's other parts I understand that but. You know you have to go whole season before we have even have this discussion but you know to me that that. That's where that discussion comes into play if you're going to only asking to be efficient BA game manager which is kind of what he's doing can you really justify paying him. So much on your cap that takes away from other parts are gonna need to win that way. Court but let's wait so let's wait or we you know. They all rate could. Totally agree totally agree yeah let's wait to see see you know what what where what this team has do against those teams going back to your original point. How the formula is against those teams have you need to reliant Tyrod he can't come through. It I takes a lot of I got the odd time of possession for you by the way I JP Jiang apology you know. The time possessions it's Anthony Lynn took over the operative coordinator duties the first two weeks the bills held the ball. 27. Excuse me 27 and twenty minutes respectively. Since he took over 2636. Point 435. So two of the last three weeks they've held the ball for at least 35 minutes of a sixty minute game. And that is an absolutely. Big key and one of the biggest reasons for that. Is the third down efficiency. And you look at the third out of urgency for the team over the last few weeks really got 61%. This Lisa that's amazing eight of thirteen. 33% 46% so really the last two weeks only one given that. Eight a 46% at 3361. That's why the office to staying on the field. A lot longer. Given the defense a chance to giving him rest and that evens gonna get reinforcements will talk about that a little while while bullets go out to log Gordon in buffalo I Gordon you are on the extra point show. So let. Thanks I appreciate you watching TV yeah I am some but does my hair look okay. I mean when you're talking to a guy who really that would degrade it here in the world let me. But well I mean honestly. What plan that he leave work when the jets were delivered consistent from the ball over content that deepens so good that it was able. Just survive but in the may read in the Peyton Manning and it can't let things that. This locate the ball well but the field at Aurora with. But I mean like if it ain't broke don't fix it up just a cure or a week to week basis. And it is working you should be fine and look when you look at that would look at it like that at this point. Cheney is a playmaker and he's doing it wouldn't have any right now wait until it back and then I'm. If he does have he does I think it's still to me it's more on the more unlikely side that he comes back this year. Will you visit to an unlikely article is that this year I mean it. If you can work. If you can work like this and then we let it be what it is and on does that and tyra. If he can make big plays in he's mister game managing your defense is signed or that the people have anything that you can't find the thing that here. Don't start over dole. Don't try and you know get better if you can't. I get to devastate wouldn't pay right move PayPal credit money. All right we'll picks up the call thinks opera watching by the way on the SI McKesson and SG I just think we're we're we're really far away from having to make that decision the bill shall attend games to play. A lot can happen between now and then with Tyrod Taylor with a team wins and losses and the result. So let's she'll wanna put that on the back burner I wanna wait to see to have that discussion I know I know it's what we do we evaluate on a weekly basis because you have that. You have that decision to make at the end of the season. But let's got to put that aside in when the decision has to be made that the decision be made and have a clear picture of an entire picture of a sixteen game season over seventeen weeks. Because right now we only have six games. I even half that. In reportedly using is working right now to win games and that's what matters. Win games get to the playoffs worry about Tyrod Taylor and anybody else's contract when it comes time to worry about that the goalie counties to be winning. On a consistent basis week to week. That's what they're doing border over the Buffalo Bills or go to 42 after starting oh into 45 to sixteen over the separatist who 49ers were talking about today right here on the. Extra point shown to take time out we'll come back we got more your phone calls on the way here on WGR Sports Radio 550 the end of an astute networks. What Joseph. I welcome back to get the boys show right here under the age our Sports Radio by his. And on MSG. The bills they've 45 to sixteen victory over. This every fiscal forty niners yesterday at new era feel all what a gorgeous day by the way at Muirfield yes it was an. Absolutely gorgeous what an incredible weather. I think it was I looked at the C Everett Cisco whether. Greater on kick off as well Siebert Cisco was 65 and rainy buffalo seven the and overcast. Nice beautiful day. Now they'll go down in Miami is gonna be beautiful weather down there because usually it could rain but now with the bill standing of born to that becomes a very very large game on the schedule. And I need to know from you today at 803055888552. By fifty if you are. If you need to see more from the steam before you fully by Ian essentially how much are you believing in them what they're doing right now. So that's where we are today. That's we're talking about taking your phone calls on that and eighty ocean why discuss the charge yesterday's win over. The savored Siskel 49ers I thought the offensive line yesterday was tremendous I know it's easy to say that when you have 300 yards rushing. Easy to say that. There were. Some pass protection issues at times that was played out and edit my arrow up or down college of each year five for the dot com so between me and said. While I don't think they play great because there were some pass protection issues they were awful in pass protection I don't think they were awful I think there were some times are Tyrod Taylor had to move around scramble a little bit. Those things happen sure but there were some there were some times where they were not as good as you want them to be in pass protection. But overall I mean how can you take away from 300 yards rushing. In fact we throw some stats on match. The bills. Total yardage 491. The tenth most in team history. The most since 2010 at Baltimore. The yardage totals the most in a home game. Since 537. Against Pittsburgh in 1991 garment acting Don Beebe had like four touchdown catches. 312 rushing yards the fifth most in team history. The most most since 315. Against the Atlanta Falcons in 1992. The DNC Anderson went broke him back then. The bills scored four rushing touchdowns as the thirteenth time in team history with more more in the first time. Since 2004 at Seattle during Al another big winning streak they had that year only to obviously lose at the end of the season in this out of the playoffs. The bills last scored four rushing touchdowns and a home game. Against the Washington Redskins in 1996. It's amazing. Also the bills had three rushers gain sixty or more yards. Yesterday was Shawn McCoy Tyrod Taylor Michael asleep for the second time in eight games. That this has happened. So the running game I think is on point right now. I also found a statistic before a gun show here that they are first in the league running up the middle. Average per carry and second filly running behind left guard averaged per carry and I know a lot of guys are pulling in that contributes to that. But that is. Eric Wood enriching kind need to do more to pro bowler there. Kevin a tunnel on your an extra point shook them what's up. More. Good thank you. In response little thought they get there now baseless and it. And I aren't. You know he's a great game editor. And not what he's what we need right now for the team. It all and McCoy is just. This guy is just unbelievable you know I want to when he's it would be nice letter and just brought up secretly shop that you are like you either ironically it was that was well. Yet a direct snaps I know that's what you're talking about there in. You'd think got a direct snap you know or you know attack president could throw the ball you'd think OK everybody knows it's coming yet they still run for pretty good yardage when they do it sometimes. Diane and only hi Daniel an extra point show what's up. I'm yeah I'm an exit ansari said Diane was at Tulane. Yeah I apologize I read it wrong in the street go ahead doing. We have game yes it was great the weather what's great my Miley king is going into this game. The outcome of these are acceptance at this point in that seat and I think that occurred on the line especially in a close game. What do you mean by excessive. I made you know how many they had yesterday. They had a great pick least. I think it was like six and let's check. Then they had they had seven I believe. Com and that right now is about average for the league. Yeah and but I do have to agree with you with us. Way way way all I was tennis point of this I'm just pointing out you know it's not that's about average for the leak. Yeah I did just that I mean up to them. The meat went what. It was still a lot less I agree with that I think that sometimes that can happen but look I mean. There are penalties you say come on now right and that are the penalties when Aaron Williams is just. Basically going up to defend a football has had come his team comes out and slaps the face mask of someone and he gets a penalty I think those are the ones that I say. What he's supposed to do about that. Exactly yeah we will we we were born at the pressure that's what's the rest. I do have to agree to a Q what Tyrod Taylor it's too early in the season to say that he's not putting up that numbers. I I do feel that. That that I didn't should be utilized a lot more with apps and so are our number one right receiver. That. Obviously it's not going to be like Jim Kelly to bachelor arts let. That would not help our passing game at this point but the running game its work in and I think we should go let it but I think he's gonna have to air the ball out later on and she can lead to cook and still not decent since. That are a little bit better it's a lot. Well probably you know either that's gonna happen at some point in time but as far as the tight ends concern he is the number one target right now in this offense yet another five. Hit another seven targets yesterday the last three weeks Charles clay has been basically leading this team. In overall targeted more than Robert Woods yesterday with six so he is being utilizes you know more often because a loss of city likens and you know I. I would love to see Charles clay you know in. A huge role in right now the trying to give him that yesterday five catches 52 yards but the last three weeks for Charles clay that targeted 75 and seven times. He has five catches in each game he went for 477352. In those games so I think at least they're starting to utilize him. And more of the manner in which many of us wanted and thought they would going into the season let's go to David in Niagara Falls hi David you're on the extra point show. There's so it's all. Telling me that it's a Hulu nickel I figured what our parents. Really torn well and they are openly and taken control. When we hear mark so various. And Shaq welcome back how much better appeasement going to be and which are blocking calming him. You know we're leaving. Lorenzo Alexander. Alexander can be French and we really don't know how much Jack Lumpkin will be able to contribute. Yeah I mean Lorenzo guess they'll start Barry scheck's not gonna start over the reds and Alexander I mean it's gonna take him a year to get back acclimated. Two we know what they're doing engines a year with he's going to be easy and I would think I don't think he's gonna get. You know 50% even of the snaps a plug on the field for ten to 20% of the snaps. Earlier for sure but dunking regarding this was telling him Barack. What open PB's so helped carry him this and weren't so I just think with our offense and defense I think the defense can only get better. No doubt I mean you're adding great players at least you're adding we will we that was one great player another was the ACC defensive player of the year no doubt about that I think the danger here is making sure that. You know everybody is on the same page as far as a rotation as far as what their role is that things like that anytime you incorporate someone is great is that player may be that's always a danger. Guilford for the defense in the chemistry if you see chemistry is often talked about on the profits aside and for good reason. Chemistry is also on the defense aside it does matter a lot so it's going to be interesting they should have a better defense of those guys coming back. Which you hope that it goes out there you go out there and you play in they can do what they're supposed to do for the defense and be a part of it. In the you don't miss anything as far as you know these are taking Lorenzo Alexander off the field. You know you hope that the person's replacing him Jack loss in this case next week maybe can do a good enough job. Congressional having a fantastic season I think that's. The way you have to kind of approach that and think about it and look and look at it the only downside I think but otherwise of course are getting new good players back. A touch on the wide receivers yesterday because Robert Woods and just an honor I thought stepped up in. Indeed what they're supposed to do after a week ago when the wide receivers did not necessarily step up and play like they were supposed to play in the drops a passes. In the LA rams game not just in not only had one catch I get it but it was also a touchdown catch. And now he has two catches and bills uniform ball for touchdowns. But Robert Woods yesterday. Very nicely. Very nice game I should say. He had six targets five catches 44 yards in his first touchdown of the season it was also fighting through an ankle injury hurt right before LeSean McCoy. Her Disney. So woods was out trying to get worked on the Colt McCoy is now would want to go back and he's hobbled around out there. Want to catch you Natasha passing game a little bit grief after the about his stepped celebration jumping up and down and an ankle but. That was his first touchdown he said he won a silver per share. But these guys do what they're supposed to do yesterday stepping up and helping out Tyrod Taylor who I don't think quite frankly a week ago. His pass catchers debt they did not help them out as much. Just an honor now being picked up off waivers two weeks it is two catches to touchdowns like I said maybe that is a guy that really can help. Fill the void right now being left Bible Simi likens it breaks out he's not seen he likens no one is. Iraq to replace Amy Watkins but there is a void that wide receiver corps when you start losing those guys. He just has to work and his little bounce into the stands Justin hunter scored a touchdown he tried to do the buffalo bounce if you will he try to jump into the stands. But he didn't accounted a couple of Siebert Cisco fans wishing any rate that's spot and they didn't catch him. They held them up so was okay but he's maybe guys pick a spot where they can catch him a little better that's the only thing. And then he had Robert was his touchdown. Nice job by him out of the slot finding the spot to get to. Getting to the ground catching the ball securing it. And I thought he had a nice scheme yesterday he really helped out Tyrod Taylor like I said. Last week I got on the right wide receivers I think even the coaches did after the performance the challenge them to step up about this week dated 803055888. Like 52 I think you'll take another timeout here will come back we'll try to take more your fault phone calls the bills 45 to sixteen over the sabre just. 49ers they ousted 42 on the season after starting the season oh into getting dirt thrown out of your foot down into the ground everybody there and I'm one of the people fired. The matter anymore it's all gone. Howard talk about that he wins. To switch to northwest and get back to look like Arthur Pressman western New York's traffic returning your ticket to justice dot com. And by measles several million for the. Back here any extra points shows out of touch with the 803055888550. To 550 we are going to take more your phone calls on the pills. 45 to sixteen victory over the Siebert Cisco 49ers. Yesterday we have talked so much about the offense I want to transition to talk more about the defense as well because. The defense really I mean another performance of less than twenty points given up. This is now. Four games straight. That the defense giving up less than point points and it's also five of six teams this season. That the defense has given up less than twenty points the only time they didn't obviously was at home to the New York Jets. On that Thursday night 3731 they lost that game but otherwise this year. Thirteen of the Baltimore Ravens. Sixteen of the cardinals there was a safety in there they get to eighteen total sixteen of the cardinals. Nothing to the New England Patriots nineteen to the LA rams and yesterday another sixteen. To. The Saber Cisco 49ers so tremendous job by the defense. The red zone defense has been especially good. This season the bills came into the game ranked second in the entirely only allowing 37 and a half percentage TDs. By opponents and their red zone. So all the times he points but in the red zone this year the bills coming in yesterday. Only allowed a touchdown in 37 point 5% of the time. Yesterday the niners' O for two. It's a big reason that this unit. Is allowing that miniscule point differential mint point total I should say over the last month of the season. Our let's head back out the phone lines just go to Tom in Rochester hi Tom your on the extra point show. Now thanks for taking my call. I kept hearing over and over again only forty years 315. Yards. And it seemed like everybody forgot about. The December 30 1995. Game will replace the status. And I'm Hewlett last game I like to call them down to the retirement game where we live up 341. The art. Correct it's not it's not that everyone forgot about apple in the NFL does these statistics they don't count playoff games we you are 100% right and we should point that out. What's interesting is that not a single article clarify dead as a regular season game so obviously kind of that kind of mystified by that because it was like that everybody forget that do. Hello again and again it goes back to. Records are kept as statistics are kept in when you hear about these things they talk about regular season games you're right. It's on us in the media we should point out they actually did do it in a playoff game mom but I think what was it 1010 dale who ran with Thurman that game. Ever I think I that is right you're right about that but you understand why that happens but I appreciate you bringing it up and bring in the point. I just didn't have qualified anywhere where it's kind of surprised me but. I do assume that game so much more mature adult games of all time. Yeah no doubt about it I appreciated and you should remember that game and I have fond memories of that team to. That was a tremendous tremendous day for the bills on the ground you know get those very often. I don't think that was Donohue his last game I think his last game was. Ono was his last game right because then I'm thinking about the Jacksonville blowout with Miami that was. Maybe that was Jimmy Johnson who was there for that one. That was nice post Ecstasy speaking of Miami. Next week bills play themselves. You'd like to have that performance again because Miami is not a good team at stopping. The run. Just like sabre system wasn't. Siebert Cisco was the second worst even illegally Indy yesterday stopping the run. Miami was the worst team in the league while after yesterday's performance is bubble teams now my now super ciscos the worst team in the league thanks to the bills. And Miami's the second worst team in the stopping the run. Let's go to adjusted hi Justin you're an extra point show. It's helped that particular call and you welcome you being on the silent in the locker room how to appeal this year it started in years past. How did that children person and I'll inoperable or you. Why do you can you give me what do you mean by feel. Justin hung up I don't know what you mean by feel I'd lobby answer your question how does it feel. I mean I just I feel like there's a group it's more together I think that's what you mean there's a group that's more together as a group that's willing to go to each other. Guess they call each other out but at least hold each other more accountable I think there's a a group now that is like that this is a group that's like that as opposed to last year where that didn't happen yet Mario Williams and all that stuff going on in fingerpointing and by the end of the year he had more people involved in that. It seemed like. Some people want to stand up so people didn't to be more afraid to stand up the season was going. The wrong way so people felt maybe it doesn't matter to stand up anymore and now you're holding people accountable. Guys are here today. They're off because they want guys will be here tomorrow they're off because they always are Tuesday. I think that goes to the heart of it so I hope that's what you meant by that I hope I answered your question let's go to Jim in buffalo junior on the extra point show. Oh that his camera I'll orient. You. Didn't your show I don't hope I'm not belabor the Oregon may not know that. Eat yet to these talk shows you in the media. The on going seamlessly on cumulative to build on what. But I last year that number of people that can't comment on it productivity or lack. Oprah very. Mature market went in my opinion yet on an extraction. Next thing you don't two interception. Al you know obviously you're it will come on that he gets it and what you're now. Maybe more from secret you know electric car lock him actor making you got you wrapped if you will be any make birdie there. We and it didn't walk on the game what part out have to do more but at this juncture because he's taken good care of the ball. If you look at our region accurate quarterback each ankle Ryan Fitzpatrick and we'll. EJ Manuel crunch I think the most able QB play we were probably from Kyle or. What do you go back the last eighteen qualifier will playoff spot. Would would back you eat and eat at. W away. Number we're 20300. Are acting game we were riding a long deep and let but wait and we. You add all of a boost. Yet we have aren't met then and Darden was you know here we are mostly early spring. The bottom out of the lack of equality that our blueprint that aren't like. Outlook for first while I'm at I'm gonna agree with you mostly I will point out though as you know Tim. The league has changed a lot since 1999 Iranian. Who we we know that that back then you could have like Doug Flutie had nineteen touchdowns sixteen interceptions by the way he's able to know that here. You know you you could do that is on as you grip the ball plea defense that was much more. Are conducive to playing in that league in that time period to make the playoffs I think what we've seen over the last decade or so in this league. Is that that's generally not the formula but I do believe is going back that way because of personnel packages defense is using. Offices are now starting to run the ball more so I just wanna point that out but you're right about that I agree that. Is once he's not giving the ball to the other team any sufficient you can continue with this formula and a week to week basis. Canada now. We've told you need to elect that we expect it to the blue print that the Denver bronco. Yeah I don't argue with that blueprint. Right that he met you know you know we're a great corporate directory Manning Peyton Manning would they would not look at him the way he was awful don't know. You know he was awful Lester that's why you didn't want it to about an eight million that look at it. The letter but there it is at the permit that sure would strongly respond money game you take your local law. Hey man I'm with them the and you know what it did win a Super Bowl there's no doubt it's been two syllable couple times all the resources pretty good. Let's I agree that and here's the thing I do have this discussion this week as we roll on it's something I've been thinking about. We don't talk about this passing league where it will where the league is gone. Tease out which is that let's talk about that we come back because some thoughts about how. Only maybe actually shifting back to why that is so that's what we call teams in the business to stay right there we're a TV or radio itself about you this is what Joseph. Tell your way back another hour with the here under the GR and a.
