In Cleveland with being succumbing to Pomona it is John Murphy show presented by no go we're going to be alive from one bills drive John Murphy battlefield whether it's an. Joining us in studio his regular Monday appearance. Feels insider from Buffalo Bills dot com. Chris Brown did after impressing forgot about it in afternoon good to be here as always we appreciate your insight we know we wanna get some phone calls on four you wanna talk a little bit about the game and get people to get your thoughts on this but just I know we won't know anything really concrete about the injuries until wrecked speaks it. 440 this afternoon. Given accents and were these injuries go Alexander etc. Reggie Bush. She and the rest well I mean I know you got a chance to talk tolerance on the locker room after the game and he seems to feel that this is an injury he's familiar with those we can and cannot do with it and he's of the belief that he has the proper treatment of those does the right things but his body through the course of this week that. You know be able to play on Monday night in what capacity I think is the biggest question but if he's available it's certainly a help. Although you know Shaq Lawson in the extra time that he did did in the absence of Alexander. Faired pretty well life you know he had to handle some extra packages that. We're not part of the game plan for him but it looked as though he was prepared there weren't any busts on his part. I'm wrecks even referenced after the game the fact that he had to put him in a couple of the coverage schemes and he did OK so I think that's an encouraging sign. He dedicated he's got his head on straight and is preparing even for the things that he's not expected to do going into a game that's a good sign from a rookie Brandon Tate. I come within concussion protocol and we all know there really is no timetable to come to concussion protocol. You wrote about this on the website this morning are the bills in position now with the injuries at wide receiver where they may be forced to make some kind of a deal before the entry deadline tomorrow afternoon. I think a lot of people are of that opinion but I think we have to remember is we don't know. What the situation is for marquise Goodwin going into this week he was in the concussion protocol did play on Sunday he was inactive. But where is he this week and there's an extra day this week with the Monday night game so how does that impact. His status going into you know the Monday night game here in week nine. And you know you have other elements at play there in terms of who's getting healthy how to Robert Woods comes through the game will he be even better this week. Kenny play more snaps so these are all things that are gonna factor into what their decision making is. I don't get the sense that there all that eager to make a move. Parting with draft picks is usually something you don't wanna do when your probably still in building mode which I think the bills could argue to a certain extent. You know that they're doing. I just are always building in the grand scheme of things. But I I don't get the sense that there's a whole lot available out there are no fans wanna throw out names and say what about this guy this guy's in the last year of his contract in this city. For this team why why don't they make a play for him. You know I was getting tweets today Arizona has been disenchanted with Michael Floyd why don't you grab him you probably get him on the cheap. You also have to factor in the salary cap implications of how those things factor in to a to a bill's cap. Which you know is Doug Whaley phrased in and are you interview last week. Yeah we have some cap room to do something but it didn't sound like it would be anything big if they wanted to. And he said even if it's a small move they're still gonna have to squeeze. A player it so. Yeah I I think in the I would at this point be surprised if something. Was afoot I think that have to be presented with a offer that they couldn't refuse and I don't think that's coming and I think if they wanna make a deal to you really have to beat the bushes. Now when you look at mark he's 21 now he's and to present protocols the couple times a one years they're long term. I guess concern here with him moving forward with who wouldn't birdies he'll. Second concussion since training camp. I think we all know how to multiple concussions work. Staying healthy he's been a prop and he knows everybody knows the NFL is about being available on Sundays and if you can't be available on Sundays. I don't know what your long term future is not only with. The bills here in buffalo though referring NFL team in so good was in the last year of his deal Robert Woods is in the last year's deal he's had from staying healthy. I mean I think he can make the case that it's probably a 5050 proposition whether either of those guys are back next year. Chris brown and studio this bill's insight from Buffalo Bills racked up phone lines open it. Eagle 3055203. Outside buffalo 1888. By fifty to 550 Chris we wanna give you a chance to win. On our Twitter poll today as we get a sense from the fans about the biggest problem and believe me. Now I took a couple of times as more than one problem for the bills yesterday but the biggest problem for the bills in yesterday's loss what once. Right now with 870 votes approximately in right now 33%. Say in effect 34% say ineffective offense. 30% say third down defense. 28% say pass defense and 8% say penalties were the biggest problem. You probably Chris like anyone of those as a problem for the bills yesterday but if you had to rank from what would be the type you. Well. I just think it's probably combination of offense and defense the bills couldn't get off the field defensively Serbian. Holding on to my privacy effective defense. But again we're we're taught him how one of the best quarterbacks. Certainly in this generation he's probably the best you can make the argument that he's probably one of the two or three best. Quarterbacks of all time. And it's funny I was thinking this morning and ray come to work today the last time. You know when my time watching football that I can remember. A team that just operated this efficiently edges had. A step up on whoever they played week in and week out and I have to go back to the Bill Walsh 49ers Joseph Montana that's really the last. Team today remember watching where I felt every week. They were a step ahead of whoever they were playing and you're just turning in twelve and thirteen win seasons with regularity. Really last time we've seen it and here we are again. With Brady and the patriots so I take the performance with a grain of salt because. And bill's fans probably don't realize this because they're not watching the patriots play other teams. With that kind of you know clarity and myopia that you are watching the bills when they play the patriots they do this to just about every. Each and every week no matter who they're facing no matter the caliber of defense they're facing it so I try to take it. And say OK it's not just the bills that looked at it. Against the patriots it's in large part most of the NFL and so that's why. I don't get to Baghdad shape with what we saw gestured now. Is this patriots team not to get too much on them but. Back to the year where they lost the giants in the soup when they were undefeated all the way through as this patriots team this year better than now. I don't know if they're better offensively. Because that was a jogger you're talking Randy Moss. And a host of other weapons I think it was these they had Rodkin heard I don't know Fernandez was there yet. It was it was. That was a super super offense. I'd be interesting. To compare the numbers there I can't remember what their average points per game was but it was pretty close to somewhere between thirty and 35. And you know their defense still had the core. Left from some of those early 2000 Super Bowl teams the 03 you know fourteen. They were still some guys still from that squad on that unit like you Tedy Bruschi and some other guys. Familiar names there. I don't know if I'm ready to go there yet. And I think the other thing two days I think the AFC's weaker conference right now that it was in 20072008. So maybe that 2007 team is still. The cream of the crop when you're talking about rate Brady patriots squad I think Theo seventeen. Still might be better. And this year's edition. Let's take some phone calls says we got talk about the bills in the loss yesterday and you know the world to Korea to calls Chris you know the bills took a hit in playoff seeding other foreign four overall one and four in the conference which is really tough. But still eight in a conference standings and we don't know the deal now they get after Seattle next week to get seven straight AFC games. Against you know lesser opponents quite frankly that's what the one loss records show so there is this thing's not over by a longshot right. I agree with Lawrence and Alexander's Cali yesterday that they control room this thing they still do that in with seven AFC conference games left on your schedule you absolutely. Have the power dip with the thing around now. All that being sick as your one and for the conference and that's not good and I think if you wanna realistically hope to win tie breakers. You've got a piece at least seven and five in the conference. Ideally hearings for right I don't think that's really realistic at this point here as in the bills to run the table the rest of the way. With theory FC opponents that they have left and you're gonna trip up somewhere I mean the level of consistency. Just hasn't been demonstrated by the bills yet to prove that they can pull something like that off. So you your margin for error is significantly reduced I don't think there's any question about that but I think you also have to look at. Realistically who the enemy. Facing a potential tiebreaker scenario and you have four other teams beside the bills in the AFC that have four losses are ready also and you have. Only two teams with three losses Houston and Pittsburgh and you only have four teams with two were few losses and here's the other thing to remember too. You have some of those AFC west teams in there. That are ahead of the bills and most of those teams. Have not really beat up on each other yet they had games against each other where there are going to be losses for Kansas City Denver and even for open. Because he had me playing one another so there could be some scenarios where by virtue of the division they're gonna get knocked down. And have some losses in the AFC also so there's a lot of football left to be played here a lot AFC conference games left to be played not only for the bills but for a lot of the teams you see on that. Or this is true for me look at it he's been the bills that the play Oakland they still have the plea Pittsburgh. You still have to play Cincinnati. You know you have teams that dolphins or jets these teams have now won a couple of games and attorney game tracks on the bills. I think you know they they do control their destiny but the biggest thing is they have to get healthy. And fast and they have to stay healthy you know you can't have so many guys going down throughout the course of that that seven game stretch. And this this is not gonna happen for UK it continues to go week to week with so many guys going down with different hamstrings and things like that and and going to think you gonna win all those interest. Yeah and then Donald right that's the hardest part of envisioning any kind of scenario for me is to think. Well who's going to be plant I don't we can repay its right who's going to be here to to go through this you know string of what six of eight earned you know which is at six and two and finishing up in the herb finishing up with six out of seven wins even in the AFC yeah it was gonna be herded to lead that chart. And we're not talking about big role players there are talking about Sammy likens who's been out since week two. You're talking about Robert Woods whose hobbling on a bad foot trying to play. To his credit. Mark he's Goodwin was arguably your third wide receiver he's out with a concussion and concussion protocol called him your best pitcher I'm not even there yet the best fit your best return Manny Brandon Tate. Is now a concussion protocol so you're special teams take to hit there. May be your most important specialties players' side from your kicker and you know you're you're the engine that runs your office is out he's responsible for 56% of the team's rushing yards 30% of the team's offense he's out of the equation. And I think what exacerbates that is from the very beginning. You didn't have a great passing game now you take out your top three wide receivers. And you're really up a creek there in terms of trying to be. Productive number one multi dimensional number two it makes it it makes the task so much easier for opposing defense is. When you don't have another element of your offense to turn to when the best party profits is being neutralized by the opponent and that's what we're going to see. The rest of the way until this offense gets. A lot healthier. In short order and fortunately the bye week is coming up and you're hoping like heck you can get a win on Monday night to go into the bye week. Heal up and then say all right you know let's hit the reset button and hopefully get some bodies back they can make a difference on the field for us offensive. And I think you know when you look at the injuries that they have been not like. An ankle sprain or it is not like a knee sprain is something like these are. And streams like injuries that linger the entire season they can linger too up or a person's career. You know these hamstrings in the foot issues that these guys are having these are the types of injuries that are tough to get through a season with. So hopefully these guys to get help you stay healthy if not it's going to be a tough stressed that China went almost. Games in a room that says to take a couple phone calls Chris Brown joins us in studio myself Donald Jones Chris Brown bills in charter from Buffalo Bills that come. Dale in buffalo idea welcome here and here. I. Thinking that micron. Are yesterday a lot and just one shot. You know the fact that you know our momentum could never gotten it yet. Right anything like you know aren't like rent and we have a lot of track ball I don't reining in open the first. Apple whatever but it seemed like a patriot really didn't drop the ball. And we are you know we had a lot of she dropped the ball well. You know to start the second half we had you know a little bit open field at OPEC and it killed it look at it and polarize it. I think it was like seventy or eighty yard box to I'm. I just want to touch on you guys and really talked about to drop all legitimate open duke act. There are some drops Chris Brown I mean some egregious draft falls in and Tyrod was off to him he wasn't total totally on target but. You know you factor in maybe catch three of those four drops and you're looking at a little bit different picture I think little bit different. Right I mean he did. Throw a laser to Reggie Bush I'm not put that one on bush in the end zone and all that ball down on him in a hurry there's got to be some touch there and Randy he's under pressure and that's not always an easy thing for him to do. I think he knew he could step into that passed because of the pressure that was coming and put a little bit more on it that he wanted to. Even the pass to play please barely got his head around the balls on a mare. He had to throw that early because pressure was coming probably a half seconds sooner than he wanted. But yes there were drops the second possession of the game. Was probably the most notable debunked as you head back to back drops on that drive they go three and out. Down come the patriots and it's fourteen to three before you have a chance to blink but that's the that's the thing that you can't have against the patriots you know you you look at the first half alone. First and goal the six you only end up with three. 22 straight drops on your second possession you go three now. Two blown assignments lead to the first two touchdowns by the patriots on defense. You have one dropped pass in the end zone by Walt Powell late in the first half where he gets one and his second hand on it can't come up what it. And you have in this field goal they go down and kick a field goal that's a six point swing to instead of being down eight at the half. You know you're down fourteen and it's just. Against the patriots of all teams you can't have that. And it's like Rex Ryan you said more than once this season we're not good enough. To have self inflicted mistakes where we're having enough of a time beaten opponents. That are capable and execute effectively. If we have self and. It did wounds we really put ourselves up Cory I think when when you look back is it to four straight games that they want. They were a lot of drop balls and those winds as well you know and put them in tough situations they were able to it I guess plate through that because you had. The somewhat quit playing so well and they were rest in the ball so well but they were having some some drop balls that we talked about it every single week. These guys have dropped passes dropped passes along with Tyrod missing guys and and overthrowing guys you know that combination is really where hurts you. But against he did teams that are not elite teams you can still come out with a victory when you have seek. When you don't have Sadie and now you're playing the patriots. And you have the same things going on you're not going to be that little. You hurt yourself and I'll argue for the run game in the second half and and they abandoned and I understand to a certain extent why. Because you're down fourteen enhance you give up the 73 yard kick return bang another sevens on the board now you're down 21. But you're a minute into the second half. Mike Gillis sleaze averaging eight yards a carry in the first hand. They ran it three times more with Mike there was sleet the arrested again and I get it you're down 21 and you know old school football rules you know. Throw out throw the ball to get back in the game you know capacity. You don't have a passing game right now. With the guys your putting on the he felt I mean I like Walt pout I tries hard he busts his tail out there but. I mean facts are facts it's not a guy you want to have to rely on to make plays for you series after series. You know and so. You make the argument here at least I will you don't have the passing game that's gonna get you back into the football you don't have that right. You're running game is working your averaging eight yards to carry the offensive line is opening up holes. Give the ball to Mikey mostly at least on your first two possessions of the second half go with what got you there in the first place run the ball more. And see what happens and then if you're doing that I think your play action game is more effective. You've got an underneath passing game that I think you can rely on a little bit more. If you have might run the ball and he was running the ball effectively I I I think you should at least. Try that the first two possessions you had the second it they did not do they ran the ball three times that like the rest of. Melamine and he he set a couple times you don't have a passing game and our I don't acknowledge that we don't know who's out you know no Sammy Robert Wood Tomlin around etc. But eventually get to Tyrod Taylor with the problems in the passing game and half a season in now so fourteen games was snowed eight games this year 22 games. There has not been I don't think you'd be our press target has been really dramatic improvement in his game from last year there may be no improvement at all actually in his game from last year so. I know there's a rush to judgment to say well that's that they can't you know picked up that option and that contract. I'm I'm not there yet I mean I wanna see other sea things season plays out but they do any better quarterback play. And they need dumb you know more accuracy more precision from Tyrod Taylor. I think they would like to see you re the feel better and make better decisions but. It's it's it's coming along slowly maybe too slowly effort for this team right now. Right and it does well here's here's Brian with tyra. I mean I can jot down notes is through the game and five times yesterday. I wrote down all location yet so I think there's five. Pass plays that weren't made yesterday that fall on Tyrod for ball location. And there's probably one other the Reggie Bush to grow where there's just no there's too much on the ball for him to make that play. So and there are instances too where we've seen. Tyrod ball location cost fifteen yards after the catch I don't think there's any question you've got enough talent the receiver position. To make yards after the catch but the ball has to be in the right place to enable the receiver to be in a position. Where they can get separation after the catch from the defensive back from the linebacker whoever's in coverage to make those extra yards. The the game against the dolphins as the perfect example you'd take mark he's good wins touchdown play out of the equation. And the bill's hand. Twelve yards after the catch out of a 154. You've got to put your receivers especially ones that aren't supremely talented which is what we have on the field right now. The opportunity. To make yards after the catch by putting the ball in the right place for it so that falls on Tyrod and here's the other thing that I struggled. And I don't know in what box I'm supposed to put Tyrod Taylor I don't think we can compare him to the elite quarterbacks in the league he has a unique skill set. And that's fine. Do we have to put. Great talent around him for him to be an above average quarterback. Or do we depend on Tyrod Taylor to raise the level of play of everybody around him which is the traditional expectation. Of a quarter due I don't know which box you put him. What's the box that you can barely put him and I think that's why we do have to see more from him. To figure out what's his designation. Yeah and Chris here comes a game a week from today when the guy who may be most closely resembles the style of play you would need from Tyrod Taylor to be successful. Russell Wilson that's the best comparison of the an automatic article may have different skill sets Tyrod and and Russell Wilson are similar in many respects. And he struggling right now because he doesn't have the running element of his game available to him and that's completely compromised. The Seattle offense entirely because now you've got people on the edge of the defensive formation. For Seattle opponents that don't have to hang in there on the edge for fear that he's gonna read option the ball pull it out and run around the corner. And make yards that way he is no longer a threat there is he's playing with a MCL injury on his right leg and a high ankle sprain on his left. He's I think he's got 22 rushing yards all season long so you take that as the equation and now these teams can pack the box with a eight defenders their run game is awful right now I think their under 85 yards a game rushing. And so now it falls upon Wilson to make plays through the air which he did. With great efficiency last year and ended up being. The leader in passer rating in the entire National Football League that if you look at his last ten games last season they were phenomenal and you say oh my gosh he's arrived as a pastor. He's a premier passer in this leak. But now you've taken a ways ability to run and it's like well. Maybe he's not so great as a pastor when he doesn't have his legs as a threat this when he that he can't be a one dimensional pocket passer anymore. I think he's when you look back to our running game it's always mind boggling to me when you think about it OK we don't have CD. But you have a quarterback who's struggling right now to throw the ball. The last two weeks they seem to really get away from the run game and that's what's mind boggling to me because we all know that this this offense rotates around the run they want to run the ball. But for them get away from running the ball especially last week in a game where you were still winning I thought last week was a more egregious offense that race week yours it's 1714 you're still went in the game and we're throwing it right it's exactly so was its best work is really confusing immediate give away from the run so much when you you know really tattooing your running game is actually working either with CD out of out of the game you know you look at DOC he was actually. Having great averages per run and you decided to get away from the roadside some of that at this woman's. It made me scratch my head only because for an offense that. Certainly has deficiencies when it comes time to throw if the running games working. Why bother thrown I mean I I understand you're down on the board but without almost an entire have to play. Just see what you can get to run the policy which you can get. And if it's not working after a couple possessions. What the heck the difference you're down 21 anyway track try what you've done successfully. And see if they can at least keep you in the game. And put some points on the board to lengthen the game I think by trying to throw they actually shorten the game and made losing inevitable. They got to stick performance difference Chris Brown isn't studio with a spills instead of from Buffalo Bills backed up we're back with more moment you're welcome to join us on the phone lines at 803.

Chris brown and a one buffalo studio thanks for those of you ought to given her flagship radio station of buffalo WG ours were pretty by fifty. And on the side of cancer and MSG couple phone calls for a Chris Brown let's go to work fill in North Carolina I feel welcome here in the year. Hey guys they get in today. I the so watch that game yesterday and from then on notice and a trend that Tyrod no word yet Kama. I'm making that leap day 90% of it snapped and shot at it he's not all of the other line. I'm an ala. Mediate the start put in them and get him up underneath center maybe the plate you know the big east and oh with a more confused and ala that you're coming up on. Can we get sick you not do that short yardage. I'm pumped for it. You know did under senator but I think terrorized. A quarterback who operates better in the shotgun. You know just in terms surveying the field now doesn't have to worry about his footwork to get back on the drop back. They like to running good number of pistol formations lately. And I think that's a formation that has worked for them particularly in the run game so. I wouldn't be opposed to that. I just think you wanna leave them where he feels most comfortable and for me at least the way it looks. It's it's in Asia. I think the only time he should come from under center and passable as if they wanna do like street I formation play action you know flood re type of thing. I think that can help with him because he gets him on the move he knows how electable late type of thing it is helpful but it's not easy to come from under senator. Have to drop back and still read the defense did you head out read the defense and re was going on and see who was open I mean that's. It's not an easy Davis and even Tom Brady doesn't really do that you know he's in the sacked a most most of the quarterbacks nowadays it in the shock and he says a lot easier for those guys to read the defense. They give the ball out quickly to a it was open. I'll hear from Bob and this hour hello Bob welcome earlier this predator August. And also. Who put complete police uptick in the oval and knowing when it and there when. We we actually. It's. And older some sort but we need to do something when a conservative route but it occur we were on the ball. And every time put we we stop. And and it. Overall it one game he caught 3040 points we going to be a little crazy and every hurdle at sixteen years Alter conservative. When it. About the one and maybe that your heaven my idea first bill's authors of series and first and goal of the six and one up that particular field goal on fourth and goal of the five. Hum percentages that you go for the field goal there I I get we've seen about the patriots and how difficult they are to be. They're they're in the one play and that Chris and Donald that though. You know watching and over again today from first and goal with six I don't know who it would have made a difference in the game and remain animated difference in whether they get into them. But Tyrod was clearly hit out of bounds on that play I mean out of bounds and there was a flag and then Brady got an extra level of protection that tyra did not yet on the exact same. Area of the sideline. Mikhail over Coleman did you hit flagged for unnecessary roughness. And maybe deserved and I mean he was still show up and died when he was ten feet at about I'm not saying that flag was wrong goes hightower who'd be consistent. There was three status into the white almost to the to that to the wall the ring volatile way so. You can argue that you probably him first goal the one there after that play if you flag. Appropriately Ford in Perry screwed in seem. Shine throwing flags yesterday that the game was over it was over officially to penalties total that was a lot it was a lot. But you know in to answer the callers question they did go for it. You know two times when they were down there and grant to gain was somewhat already decided in the news they just had to go for touchdowns and field goals were fruitless. And had a turnover on downs they still there and execute. And and the one played and I really had an issue with with halfback option pass was Reggie Bush I mean imagine down earlier you're down there in you again back to your running the ball effectively. You're in scoring territory you've been an effective red zone offense all season long. What are we need to do the halfback option pass for I I really think that. Coaches and that is the bills coaches the coaches around the league it's almost like the gets spooked by the patriots in feel they have to do something different. And while we'll get him with this does not expecting this just. When you're playing the patriots who are as good as they are as consistent as they are. Do what you do best and that's run the ball in there I mean the bills are like in the top five in the league in yards per play in the red zone. And we are resorting to a halfback option pass run the ball down there it's what you do best. If you get stonewalled and urinal on down and distance situation all right then turn to something else but. Pound it up in the air and see what you get you might be surprised. Yeah I'd have to agreement and I saw that I saw them run that play in practice than and I was like well I hope they don't really have to run Netflix and I ran it in the in the red zone practice dad and now I'm Reggie was through to Charles clay. But anyway so yes and gave me you're right maybe you get down in the red zone. You're rushing game is what you do do what you do best Mandel trotted cute cute outdated because you outplay yourself be out cold yourself be out trick yourself. Trying to do that and that's what the PTs do men like you said every team that they play against. Coach is trying to add different things into the playbook and you end up hurting itself as a collier from a Dan in spring go again welcome here on the air this. Hello Dan in spring bill. Let's go to Michael in Pittsburgh Michael you're on the air. A. I'd gotten. I wanted to say. I mean we lost the Petri. I don't think we need to rework the offense and out that would need to go to the electronic guys injured I think everyone has is like. It austerity tactics and let things happen but I think we need to cut or the team that pretty much spent the Pittsburgh Steelers. I really to relax a little. You know my I think our big us three sitting up here eat none of us has said that the offense needs to do anything else you know we're saying due to do best which is run the ball hit and that's what we wanted to see at least I wanted to see. I want to deceive them stick to the run this week last week was the same way stick to what you do best don't get away from it because. You're down by a certain point you if you run the ball you can keep that offense off the field and you can keep different scores so many points you can keep the clock moving. And that was the biggest thing for me that they're not going to. Totally get away from the run but. They need to do more consistently throughout the course of the game you know as it seems like in the second half of these last two games they've gotten away from it. And I don't know why that is. I'd I I don't have an answer warrior and you know it's probably question for action in May feel as if this afternoon is it just. It kind of just defies logic for me just if you're just being logical about what your strengths ours a football team right now. It's running the football whether you have a full complement of receiving talent or not. I mean even if Sammy Watkins is healthy and Robert Woods is a 100% healthy and mark he's good wins in the line up. Running the ball is still what they do best. All of those guys are pretty much out of the equation and Roberts not a 100% of these planes. I think it's all the more reason to run the football you know you have to stick to your strengths especially when some of the other elements of your team have been stripped away. Go back to what works best for you. And try your I mean already planning for I'm sure they are try it anyway I mean look at the game in week ten last year against the jets. You know down there that Thursday night color rushed game you're facing the number one run defense in football it didn't stop them from running the ball they ran it anyway. They weren't great but they were effective enough and the jets wound up giving up the most rushing yards they had all season long a 150. Granite LeSean McCoy was a big reason why they won that game he made something out of nothing several times but they stuck with their strength and they won the football game. I think you have to get back to what you do best. And if it's not good enough at least you went down swinging. You know with the best of what you have to offers a football team. Chris for at the midway point of the season and as you make your way through the workweek here and and Buffalo Bills back I'm gonna kind of address were the bills are added foreign foreign with eight games left. Time for the mid season report and it's not all bad I mean they're foreign foreign. You know I know some of the players were trying to assess what they felt they were and Corey Graham was blunt saying we're foreign foreign were mediocre and that's what we are. And he still believes there's a potential that they can reach to be better than that you know they've got. And other games to prove it. You know so we'll kind of diving to the three phases of the game what's good what's not so good. And and you know we'll insert some player commentary in there to get a first person account of where they feel they need to get better. What they feel they can lean on while they're trying to get those other parts of their game better and what really outlook is here for the second half of the season.

Good field position you know and all they have to do was get in their kickers who oval race. And he drilled a 51 yarder at the we missed the 49 yards so that's. That's another blown opportunity.
