To play in January event at 1 PM self popular joins me before he heads out to Cincinnati on the charter. Forgive me his three dogs Saturdays I'll also ask some bad angles questions to sail I want his thoughts. On an aging dangles defense and just how important this game. Could potentially be for the bills 8030551888550. To 550. My question to you this morning is who should the bills count on the most. For a playoff push here over the final seven. Games they'll likely need to win out if they have any chance at securing. Eight playoff spot in the wild card. And I think at this point we can all agree the division is basically out of the question however. Two wildcard spots remain and there's a couple things I wanted to go through in the I guess pursuit. Of one of those wild card spots and we'll get through that here momentarily but we also let's talk about today. The return of Marcel Darius and how important he will be. To these defense moving forward in potentially. That being able to to pull back on the blitz cover one air turner I was reading some his stuff and watching his podcast the other night. And he was talking a little bit about you know. The bills blitzing percentages and and you know how how they're actually starting to come back in the starting career back a little bit because they can't exactly trust. That bills' secondary to you know handle their business and in demand covered there were served some controversial comments this week supposedly. From Stephon Gilmore in regards to man coverage. And I don't know the we have that sound if we do we will get to that some points. Today as well we also want to talk a little bit with Ryan today about Ryan grow right. Who will be starting in place of the injured Eric Wood who will now be officially beat. Out for the season with a broken legs and he won't be returning this season so Ryan grow a a big game for him as a starting setter for this team. Will his performance hinder the bill's ability to run the ball it I'd that's why it's certainly did towards the end of the game. In Seattle however the bills weren't exactly trying to run the ball that time. Because they were coming from behind it in passing but. Important match up this week between Geno Atkins up the middle who's probably one of the premier defensive interior defensive tackles in this week. He'll go up and he just absolutely tormented. Where they played last via last week there. Which on the Bengals angles there is a prime time is the GI giants. And you saw. I mean. The thing about I'm not steered. By any means of the Bengals but Geno Atkins absolutely tore apart. The interior offensive line of the giants I believe it was on Monday night so not only are the bill's going to get. The what do almost a two week break with playing on Monday Night Football than getting the bye week and coming back they're going to face. A Bengals team was coming off of Monday night Pope also a short break. And the bills get that elongated breaks they should have the advantage game plan wise against the dangles but we've seen. That doesn't necessarily mean anything in regards to wins. Or losses 8030551888550. To 550. Would like to hear from you today. Your thoughts aren't cool the bills should count down is it push on the court. Is it Tyrod Taylor is it may be a unit is that the whole bills defense they you'll be counting on free bills playoff run here. As we move into the final stretch of the season where they'll likely have to win out. If they indeed have an opportunity here to do something they haven't done in sixteen years war. Will they fall short or more time and make it seventeen and going to the offseason because I tell you what if the bills lose this week. Next week there will be a lot of for the bills draft. Yeah where might they be picking Baird need to go six and one realistically to have a shot. Is that would put them at ten and six in human airport conference record might keep them out at that point. And also ten and six might not be enough the way that the raiders and chiefs are playing season. You need six and one so if you lose your you already have to win not to have the most realistic shot. So it starts here for the bills and the Bengals they have a couple pieces that really scares you like and AJ green and Geno Atkins. And even Andy Dalton on most days especially at home so it's not like the bills are going to be locking down easy street here. But they need at least take your business right here right now against units down on their luck. And there is a couple of as that originally to have been earlier I was going to I looked into a few things. Armed. Last weekend and I wanted to pass them along and and what they are. Are the schedules of the two teams I think the bills need to worry the most about that don't they don't actually get to play. Here moving forward they get to play the Oakland Raiders so if they can beat the raiders and had to had match up. That will do a lot of of a lot of good I think it is bills team in their chances to get to the playoffs but a few interesting notes. Is that Denver and Kansas City play each other twice on the stretcher. Those are the two teams that I think that bills need to worry about the most if they have an opportunity here. To see again those are the two teams are going to have to wait for up to sneak into. Over one of those teams I am gonna be hard pressed to think that the the AFC west it's three playoff teams this year. Just because they have so many more games at hand with that teams in the division Oakland still has to play Denver and the final game of the season in Denver. Denver also places new wing gleaned. Kansas City twice. Tennessee injection about those Tennessee Jackson games that a Tennessee's played pretty good football right now. That's not a team I don't think. That the Broncos are gonna go win it and walk all over in Tennessee. That'll be a big game I could easily easily see Denver here they got the week eleven buys that are off this week. Next week they get back into it they'll play at Kansas City at home at home to Jack's arms are on the road in Jacksonville on the road in Tennessee. Then home to New England. Kansas City and then home to Oakland and the season they could potentially. Lose and if they Odyssey worst case scenario here is you want the chiefs I think to run the table or. The second best team in the last night I either way the west is gonna have to playoff teams it's going to be Oakland win the division I ultimately think or Kansas City has a real shot to win the division I think is well. Let's go over Kansas city's final games here so week eleven this week they'll face off against Tampa Bay. At Arrowhead Stadium that was probably locked dent. Yet Denver in week twelve that's going to be in prime time so I think the winner of that game you're gonna be rooting wins the next game. Of that series which comes towards the end of the season. Then you've got at Atlanta in the Georgia Dome. That's not going to be an easy game for Kansas City then home against Oakland home against Tennessee. Home against Denver and then at San Diego so these two teams this this Kansas City Chiefs team who at the moment. It is let's see what they altogether seven into right now that you got Oakland Raiders or seven in two and then you've got. The Denver Broncos were six and three. My question do you is. You have to cheer for one of these teams and I think they team that your going to cheer for to potentially run the table and beat one of these teams twice. Is Kansas City as much as you want hate hate seeing right. Discredit because Kansas City has been a thorn in Buffalo's side. For. Many years now. Besides that playable next season so be ready for that old darkness smiled for an. But I'd rather say Oakland wide because you at least control your own destiny against the raiders. But also if they do you get to running away with it which they seem the most capable of doing yeah there. You you what you at least want to be able to win the game you have to win or if you lose to Oakland it becomes more non consequential. The problem is here with me Derrick is they likely need eleven wins to secure. A playoff spot. At six in three right now the Broncos have two games at hand on the bills. As I mentioned their final we get your 56 games. Hold against Kansas City desperately to seven. They are seventy haven't had to buy at least that's right that the by the to say they are 73. So they could potentially. So they have three games on hand at opt for the bills against the Eagles so. That's why I think at this point were rooting for Kansas City to essentially baby don't run the table but beat Denver twice and then you have Denver let's say. Lose to Oakland which I think we need as a bills team them to lose open if they lose three games right there and the bills are able to win out. Bill have the tiebreaker. Over. Over Denver with. What seven that AFC wins yet they would absolutely let's see let's count how many wins OK right now you have. One that two. And three. For. Currency they lose that Warren. Five. While you do the math and is gonna go on missiles. On missile thing it would give cities so impressive number seven in two Kenya. They just had a soft is scheduled that they took advantage of nice job bills but it loses a couple of games should note. So the chips are just always taking advantage of such bad scheduling for being such a good. Yeah so is date. What she said and as it's important to note is they win big games they should win. And that puts them in position and that's cuts of meat comes down to good coaching and that's why Andy Reid is one of the best. When your coached well in Europe well coached team you win big games you were supposed to win. Now I don't think the bills have necessarily a history of losing games are supposed to win it and it's difficult to really. What it is to me is difficult to identify what games the bills are quote unquote supposed to win our big games that are strictly favored it. On the scoreboard I don't think so I think even though they were underdogs going to Miami a few weeks back. They were underdogs so technically they're not supposed to win that game if their underdog however. I'm hard pressed it and I am. Maybe maybe I just think too much of the team to say. They should win that game. That's a game you should when they lose that game. What now when you look back how important do you think ultimately that game is. That Miami game may be to the to the fine finale of this season especially now that Miami. Has a game at hand and you now not only are they game up they've got the tiebreaker to the really two games up on US still have one add him to play with down. As well and that is what week sixteen I believe it is sweet sixteen home on Christmas Eve. To the dolphins have also an opportunity to appease the dolphins and I'm not sold at all on the dolphins. As a unit. Abbey I've sold as they do have a good running game in their defense is kind of coming around their offensive backfield is a mess yes it based Philip Hanna now. It's a plucky little four game win streak guest who also had one of rushed the bills. So teams can get hot and then next you know sometimes they're true colors or show. This might be the case for the Miami Dolphins or the actually might be figuring things out you wanna hear the scary part about the dolphins. They probably a nice if they have indeed figured things out. Third the college game and a half up on the bills. At the rams. Home against the niners. Thing at the ravens'. Home cardinals. At jets. At bills. Home patriots. I still see at least three loss. In the Ramsey can ever know what the ram you can never do what Jerryd off. I know that this team has won two games without scoring a single touchdown. And the dolphins would be. Primed for that recipe of hey lets just win with ten points they're going to be so 49ers next there going to be the jets. I'm a. I'm not sold on that because again you don't know which jets team and getting up each year. But if if it's if it's the Bryce patty Ladd jets I feel pretty confident. That the dolphins beat the jets that you have a patriots team who may be playing for nothing in week seventeen which could be that key factor here. Is it becomes doubt that week seventeen matchup where the bills need a win but also need help. That could be a big game to watch whether or not the patriots play their starter whether or not Tom Brady plays whether or not. Look Derek block plays whether or not some of their top defensive players play. That'll be interesting to see the cardinals also insisting team don't know exactly what you have and the cardinals. It's kind of good Carson Palmer bad Carson Palmer the season really it's been mediocre Carson Palmer and bad Carson Palmer. I think ultimately. I don't feel good about their cardinals game in the sense that I don't think the cardinals on the road can beat the dolphins. The cardinals have been pretty good traveling east pay bills game aside bills inside. At the ravens I think the ravens probably can win that game. I feel pretty comfortable. Without that ravens team now I feel a little bit better than I am a couple weeks go and Iran met for five game slide defensively there fantastic to see they are fantastic they've got good pass rush. They've got. Decent quarterback play at the moment with Joseph Flacco. Their running game and at least a little bit to be desired but their receivers ash receivers though. Are pretty I mean at this point have they are what they you know Steve Smith's likely your best receiver there. But Mike Walsh has played well this season the shark parry and still kind of waiting for him to break out. But ravens team that's a team that I look at that could potentially beat the division winner. In the north which is just bad news bears because they could potentially win that division with eight or nine wins and then you're the bills team that needs eleven wins just to get in. To a wild card spot. Yeah and this is something that. I don't know how I saw this coming at the start of the season when Sal made us all. Yes you collect everyone's picks. I predicted the bills go ten in 61%. Bites not that's not other quite yet to miss the playoffs young which actually could be realistic if the bills do manage to go on a run. And that's terrified. To have the best record in the dry out of seventeen years most years tenant six gets you in no doubt yeah. And the thing is to be on the outside the canyon so another team that I think you're gonna have to start paying attention there's I think fourteen is right now. That the bills need to pay the most attention to I think right now I mean it's five if you're gonna count the Baltimore and because I think what you want is you want the ravens. To ultimately run the table not maybe run the table but being that division leader let's say it nine wins. If you're the Pittsburg Steelers however. You face the Steelers had had the Steelers are now have a lot are losers of four straight. They play the browns this week in Cleveland. You can hope for fingers crossed as we know and it's well documented. Roethlisberger on the road is way different than Roethlisberger at home but it's the O and what ever Brown's. This is what I think your most worried about if your bill stand is what happens in the north. Who ends up pulling away in that division. The colts. They play the colts I don't think you can worry about any team in the south I think that. Division will take care of itself whoever wins that division will be a playoff team they have no other. To meet the rats. On that team or ansari in that division. There's just absolutely. Do you think that there. Pittsburgh is borne by. Their forefathers say recchi in the best right there game backs it up like they don't control their own debts no. And here's the thing with the ravens and try to look at between the Steelers and ravens who is the ease your schedule when it looks like to meet. The Steelers have the ease your scheduled at the browns twice and they play at the colts. Home against the giants at the bills at the Bengals home against the ravens so. That's to me the biggest worry because of both of those teams ultimately at and from the schedule. If the bills can beat. Pittsburgh had had. That six losses. Then the bills on the table. They're eleven and five. And obviously they're over Pittsburgh it doesn't matter who else and that debated that that division as a matter so the bills potentially. Control their own destiny against Annie AFC north team. But the west is the other thing where you have to look at and then you look at what is the easiest route to a bills' playoff spot and I think what it is. Is Kansas City beating Denver twice in Oakland beating Denver that's six losses right there for Denver and say they win the rest of their games tenant six. That you're looking at a bills team who. Et potentially tenant six or I think you need eleven wins. I don't think you needed but I think eleven wins puts you win no problem. The all the major thing here is you need those losses from Denver to suffer from Oakland and Kansas City. Why because then the bills in the Broncos would share yet a conference record. As it comes down hang on I've losses in the conference and then if the bills were to lose one game as a matter effect. They'd still have that leeway at ten and 610 and six Denver buffalo they have the same conference record rep. So that becomes huge so then what's the second tiebreaker you know. That we're have to look up. You don't moment 803055188. By 52 by fifty Bryant helped. Joins me next from New York upstate. We will get into a little bit of this bills Bengals match up on Sunday now as I mentioned just a little over 24 hours away. And looking like as I'm watching here. In his studio. Some college gives it looks like Charlie Strong will be fired. At Texas and they're supposedly boosters there are pushing for Tom Herman the coach for Houston. To move on over to Texas to take the longhorns program dog had Texas through your program well all. I'm so proud strong been a big disappointment there. It's been how many years three. That's not even nearly your entire recruiting class I agree however college needs to have more patience with the coaches is not yet up well it's not the NFL there but. Texas is a huge. And the fact that. Programs like Baylor programs like Houston. Program like Texas tack. Have had more success in the past three years then Texas has has put a black. On that program. They have fallen from grace since that Colt McCoy play in the national championship against Alabama or hurt his shoulder. And they got blown out the national championship game they have never recovered. The recruiting to meet Charlie Strong hasn't been a strong recruiters since being there so to me that makes all the but the sense it I really like Tom Herman coach Houston they he's a great coach. It just to move there and up will we'll keep you updated if anything it actually happens there but I do expect Charlie to finish at least the season out there. What what the report was is that the boosters are pushing for Charlie Strong to be fired in Texas 8030 by 5188550. To fight it the we'll take your calls here this morning or talk and bills now Knox as I mentioned Ryan tell with New York upstate joins me. We'll get a little bills spangled preview next year on sports talk Saturday omni Kyrie this is WG. Seymour has been placed on nickel and console was noble people and you know by the courts and hopefully we'll play a lot of guys because we have good players and competition makes everybody better and quite honestly we you know we feel good this week. I love the preparation that we. That's bills coach Rex Ryan talking about some of the roster moves. That you could potentially be seen this week as our set much has been reporting all week. Nick tell Roby Coleman looks like he will be quote unquote benched this week for keep our and Seymour. Who will be potentially starting in the nickel role this week and then you have at the other corner position a quote unquote battle there as well between. Ron Darby and Corey white. Who I don't feel really poses as much of a threat I do really see Darby ultimately starting the game but you'd never. Can tell OK let's go to the eighteenth tee hot like now we've got Ryan tell that he's from New York upstate. Ryan joins in on the program Ryan how are you today. Great. Yet a problem get ready for the snow to come 'cause that I got here this morning and it was still rather warm kind of left over from last night. I'm looking out the window now it just got pretty menacing outside it's pretty dark. Housed up in your area. Yeah wind picking up here and now you know what's New York weather and mowed the lawn yesterday it's gonna get hit with these notes today and tomorrow. Yeah I was I was really thinking about maybe you know. Calling in sick yesterday and a Friday and it works and go golfing but it did end up happening and again you know last year I gulf done on for team. New York Christmas Eve it was last year I don't agree get that this year but you know as we as we know what's New York weather is pretty predictable but. Ryan I think maybe another unpredictable thing at this point is well just where the hack the bills. Are as a franchise this year on WGR fighter too dark are now running a poll will the bills beat Cincinnati on Sunday. And right now we're over about fifteen looks like 16100 votes on the website and 54% right now saying no so I think. Fans are kind of in the same place. Really as the national media and just really ever won the kind of follows the team right now is they don't really know where this team is. Obviously we know we are now entering a tremendously important stretch of the season here the final seven. He likely going to have to win out war every one but one of those games if they have any prayer and a playoff spot. What are your thoughts where are your feelings about not on these team offensively and defensively I am you know each unit but as a whole. In their chances here moving forward in the final stretch to be a legitimate contender in a playoff team. Well I'm not like inner to be a playoff team this here the FC west as real legitimate teams. Felt like obviously division winner that people wild card spot. Oakland Denver Kansas City doesn't going to be three. Teams that are top catch up Q. I know. Inner. Division games being like that but. Right now my money would be on those three teams blew up one within the division to claim the two wildcard spot. As for where the team is. You know right now that you like in middle of the pack team. You have to prove to the pain and they have to prove to the media that they are legitimate team that they can make a quick surely he's been. This game on Sunday it's I think it's echoing game. I'd bet that I think that being looked as a match ups that they could really take advantage of against the Bill Burton and I'll write for a mismatch. I think obviously AJ green and the at any cornerback for the most part in that match. And that defensive line against the banged up build up our climb especially G Mac or so Brian Roy could be a nightmare for the bills are under. Yeah and I mean if you watch Monday Night Football last week. You if you walked away pretty nervous about what Geno Atkins could potentially do. Against not only a back up you know sadder but a guide its release his natural position is dark. Now you had him moving over to the center position obviously I'm gonna be paying attention to right and Arnold is something they deal in our common guy about the specifics but the the roster spot I'm gonna pay attention to the most is whether or not they dress Patrick Lewis. Because let's say for some horrible instance John Miller or Richie and I need or Roy go down. Patrick Miller I think is the only really other interior offensive lineman left on this team especially let's say if if Miller goes down boy needs to move over and then you insert Patrick Miller Europe is so Patrick Lewis I'm sorry. What do you I mean how important is gonna be who they dress at the line into it you got. I mean they have a lot of tackles right now with quad joke. And US Odyssey mills who has been starting but there's been some talk that shot from Henderson may take over that spot so how important will it be on the offensive line or. Who dresses for this team and whether or not they'll have the correct dot. Moving forward and for the season. Well it's very important like he just sat at something happens being here bell line. They need to do lose jobs and put someone in their of course already but that match their self. Eagle Louis hopefully that he's he's up to speed you'd think he'd be dispute now I'm ready to go I he says that he prepares every week like the people and so or. This week. But they did say something about consulates being three or Apple's they wanna get aren't doing that Lonny and and then they wanna keep buying milk. The toll can find the right guy. That gullible problem here you're talking about the eleven and your anger are three guys going like apple. I'm like that hold the line dangled. A Carlos Dunlap you have Michael Johns and Eugene Nowak continued. I mean just those three alone are our tires. I'll take Ellen is still pretty good players kind of odd this crime now but overall. Keeping track of how that defensive line played in buffalo offense and meet PEE. Match up for the B overall deciding factor when the game on Sunday. Rides out here from New York upstate are on the AT&T hotline with me now talking some bills. So Ryan let's flip the script here on the defensive side of the ball Marcel Darius will likely to play he stills with this questionable. Obviously with out that that probable designation. Questionable is your new probable so right now if Darius is back let's say he's at 90% and can give you thirty to forty snaps. How important is his presence back in this bills' defense may be to the success. Of some of these defensive backs that have been struggling so much in the past few weeks. I think could be huge and that the big old monopoly game they really current Ron Hornaday how much sick pets running against the giants. I'd Jeremy L at 46 yards on fifteen Ares. Giuliani Bernard at seventeen yards and seven attempts so they'll go on the structure of the game was saying you don't know the fifteen yard scramble so. They're struggling if you answer guy like mark felt Daria who's great at stopping the run are blowing up played before they started yet Pena. I don't willing than and a broad they would be dull as watching in. We are all worthy whoever you wanna put in there that that the orbital brought. And that obviously the linebacker clay than on the bright spot on the team this year elk. If you have a front seven playing at a high level it it should help the secondary here. Gabriel an interest in a couple existing names at the office Washington and roll worthy. I don't buy you Ryan I've been really impressed really since pre season especially adapt fully with the dolphins washed and he spends sort of honestly maybe one of the most consistent. Young players on our team but maybe just from one of the more consistent players in this defense all season long and I think the important thing with Washington. Is you'll hear his name. And I think. For our offense at it lets you work you know and outside linebacker in your your games predicated on sacks or things like that then those are positions you're gonna wanna hear a guy's name on the telecast or just you know things like that but. For me Washington. Has been one of the mainstays on this team and his defense all season long and that's you know to get which you're getting out of basically a third round pick I think is great and that crop up you know. Also is laws image draw worthy his performances like I said really since pre season have been impressive. You know how important of these to bend. And basically covering and just kind of getting by without Darius over these first in a ten weeks or so. Yeah I think they've all played important roles they're pretty watched him along slowly which is much better idea is that they're round. He has started in the game but he had a lot than 200 total snaps on he's been but when he had done that feel like he's studied. He he's not armed. Backing to the farm in terms of not running right now and he's been very solid in terms aren't stopping. Coming out of Ohio State uses no more actually for being apps are getting after the quarterback actually quarterback. So it's been up. It's been good to see that you and salad in there and run and well. And then with the trial where the you know former circuit around its. I didn't seem like you are on the on the beat and that there is skills it's apparent that all clear need in this league if you go to it he heard multiple. Odd case where they're running something that doesn't. She'll walk what you do back. You can kind of look but it ought incredible but he got it doesn't belong in the week but all the and training camp pre season and what is and I'm a little realm where the law. But are you look like big guy who maybe he should India starter but he should be the first the tension in terms of a rotation leash he significant bets on a weekly basis. So bald guys have done a nice job up front in terms of are built in from our so Daria now that are there is no true replace it for a on this rot on. But they they have done well in and replacing is that they can't. Ryan also let's before we hop back to the offensive side of the ball quickly here at the U defensive backs obviously it's been well noted their struggles really. From week one and you know a lot as been made this week of some the comments Stephon Gilmore had. I'm not putting too much stock into it as is our set apart she also said he's not put in a whole lot. A stock into what Stephon Gilmore said but how important this week is their performance which I guy I guess against the pretty. Lee Jeter I don't wanna say I've a top five rated top ten receiving corps but. With the addition of an injured eye for who had been really injured really up until I think two weeks ago or so. I for AJ green brittle fells and other guy that you're definitely gonna have to keep an eye and so against this type of I guess passing attack. How important is it for these defensive backs maybe to have the basking in the year. Just may be quiet some of the critics. Yeah I think it's crucial on the the bill that kind of play musical chairs back there right now. Where they're staying according like could come and eat it maybe you'll start tomorrow eaten in maps and speak Darby out of the game currency more. Who was the proper training camp EE my seat to get in time and is the nickel cornerback. So it's it's very important are the starters though reserves ever wonder really have a big game. Same with the safeties they're going to need safety help on EG green pretty much all game. And you know Cory grant me the battered back there wouldn't have a lot though. Question mark after him on you know apparently the duke William they have a lot of guys that you don't know what they're going to Q and they're back there. So that's huge com. I I would still be putting a CE corners someone like that. I mean in the city the other Tyler paper obviously they add is that brown whose athletic enough where every now and 1989. The tight end but those two guys I mean it. Stopping them currently owned up and down the heat of the game. That the Bengals passing offense is what it was last year they missed my aunt knew they met Smarty Jones. But they still you have eight top flight wide receiver and a top flight back. Brian Kelly here from New York upstate Ryan I was just taking a look here. At some stats this. Jerry Sullivan on Twitter. We dot Tyrod Taylor has thrown only one touchdown pass in the second half of games when the bills are trailing by seven points or less. As a starter for the bills. That's a stat. And I am just kind of took me back I was reading I'm like can't be true I'm. I'm just thinking to myself why I mean I guess it is in the U comeback last week I think for me bill spans two weeks go I should say. I know for me I walked away. From that Seahawks gained even though the bills lost. Feeling. I ought to say a lot more competent but I got this sense of security almost. About Tyrod Taylor's performance in May be how he's now set a blueprint for himself. In for this offense to be more successful. Under Ian penny went a kind of wanted to get your thoughts on where you thought his game has spent this season. But really maybe excelled and and in maybe this is something we can expect to start seeing from Tyrod Taylor on week to week basis. Yeah I would edit the Seattle apartment at his best game of the Buffalo Bills quarterback starting quarterback. I think he was great I think he he read the field very well and yet he's not like an edit and Spielberg back in third or three. Like he he knew going into the play where's in the net going to be and eight are what receivers. Obviously Robert was being that the key receiver in that game. I cannot knowingly used not you know this is what they're they're paying money or that big option they beat up and the Nazis and. And to be played like that or the final seven gains. Com you'll have to pick up that option grant is this your strip class. There's a lot of question marks there and you don't know what you're going to get in the middle the first round where they are projected to end the year right now. Why you don't know you know usually whoever created Merck is free agent early and. And it anchor. You're asking a lot through that and and equally ready for a guy that I'm in India that it was a franchise. People that need to realize that he's not a practical corder I'll never be there right there were eighty. Oh what he can do it does pretty well. I would I wish there is that he contract problem he avoided the easily because right up at the line as been fine don't get me wrong. We're in double digits and probably thank you politically as mobile easily off easily all without a doubt he'll lead he had a call in terms of cornerback Reggie. I seen him grow open and here is on the accuracy. Hadn't been aware of where I would like to be here all year but the same time that has played the bulk of the. He's now number one right Ebert. And really at times is number two pin number three receive. Yeah I meet at Reggie Bush whining not you had guys like wolf I'll let. Straw strong training camps. But he wasn't a guy that you expected to see the workload day that you're seeing now. So he's done a lot with a little and and I mean if you look in England this week that all eloquent person aren't going to be starting. Although not I know he was the opportunity with the bill last year. But it just picked up a guy out the culture in weeks ago and now the city's gonna star along with Robert Woods and Archie and whomever else. But and it's held that the up but the children playing with this year and ever want to in the allotment aren't Baylor but all things considered what he's been working with the and you got to find jobs this year. Yeah last thing Ryan and I'm I'm glad you mentioned Percy Harvey because that's where I wanted and off here is. Obviously this week invade there's been reports his role will certainly be expanded. In his second game as a bill obviously that bye week allows him. Q did a little bit more time not only in this offense but just to get that stamina just to get that football you know quote unquote football shape back. How I mean what do you see his role being this week and how important is it for him. It's really become the Percy Hartman of old if you think this bill because I think really. Even though I don't wanna put too much into the Percy carbon bank I do think if he is able to. I don't know if he's able to be the Percy Harvey and that we saw pre all those injuries and that is a dynamic weapon this bills' offense has needed on the outside in and I can't tell you how long in that addition would be huge for this team so. I guess my question do you Ryan is. If he can be the old Percy Hartman. What do you think is I mean other than the sky's the limit for the softens but what do you think the ceiling is for this offense if he's potentially the old person apartment. While there it is the old verse current which I don't know clobber the gamut all the dirty and everything out. Then you know they opt into the final seven weeks could be very very special you have a helping us I'm Nicole like obviously don't wanna say. This spending watney is going to come back but he comes back and you have those as the top three guys and all these Shawn McCoy. Yet Charles white who didn't he keep. He hasn't really been focal point her focus on much this season. Then up and there and and they could show. The open look what the com offers urban party saying that all the sudden you feel like he could play Q mark do you and will deal with bat. Person hurt and even at 70% 80% of what used to be with that the vikings and an early look at the opt. He'll do a lot of damage in this league. He was he adds natural chemistry regularly let here he was the leading receiver the first four we. Aren't so. The op and could really. Use some damage it's he would help people that is huge. Our Ryan I appreciate you coming out with me today this morning to toxin bills Bengals. Will be watching closely as it think we all know at this point really.

Have lost to Sidney Crosby let's put this week's Sydney Crosby last played in the game. Where the penguins lost to the sabres on December 29 of 2009 he's got a fifteen game win streak. That December 29 2009 game was my eighteenth birthday. I was in crowd. Eight rows up in the corner and I remember specifically this game because Drew Stafford. Got apparently shot they were down I believe at that point took nothing. Drew Stafford got caught out of panel Arab breakaway scores on a penalty shot they end up winning that game I believe five to four. And I'm I can't remember if Drew Stafford had your hat trick that game. I read a brand X court I just remember that game specifically because it was on the eighteenth birthday and I was sitting just a great seats from a birthday but. 2009.
