Brought to you by northwest makes. Make the switch to northwestern get backed away. Good Sunday morning. This says the Buffalo Bills radio network my name is Jeremy White happy. Sunday to you happy Saturday Sunday whatever you might be doing over the course this we can give a beautiful days. Great time good and shop future Christmas trees do every might be doing out there. So I'm happy Sunday to hear the bills and the raiders on the way. This afternoon will have of course pregame coverage here on our flights are station WGR and the Buffalo Bills radio network the raiders commit to this game. A favorite but the bills are are definitely given a puncher chance in this game and and one of the things that I don't talk about as expected the the bills are not relieved big underdogs in that it's kind of and that's kind of puzzling to me it's a road game it's a West Coast trip and you get a team has got a really big winning record the raiders. And the bills are banged up on offense and yet. If you look at the lines look at the spread. The bills are given a really decent chance release the spread isn't Olympics so he'll take that for what it's worth but. Welcome aboard we're getting you ready for a 4 o'clock kickoff between the bills and the raiders. With John Murphy and mark Kelso calling the play by play live from the northwest broadcast Booth make the switch to northwest. And get back to living today's broadcast has probably presented by. A units Westin New York's only organ eye tissue and community blood center checked yesterday to help save a life. So the bills have a very I wanna see a very unique circumstance this week with one other players that is Charles clay. Is is not something that you deal with an awful lot the bills have been and let's be r.'s Fred they've been very on Lockheed. Regarding injuries and availability of players. The Shawn McCoy Sammy Watkins Robert Woods Percy Harvey and mark he's good with none of them has been able to stay healthy the entire. Year we are well into the season were approaching the final. The homestretch really and the bills have been hit with tons of injuries over the court according gland. For a little but it time their Gwen had something Eric Wood gone for the year you've had lots of injuries might callously finally. I saw today like that looks like Gillis was gonna play OK and everybody has been hurt. Charles clay has not been hurt but Charles clay. Didn't fly with the team didn't travel with the team because of the birth of a child. Which is not something that you definitely like hull he's gonna miss the game because of the birth of a child it's not something that that often happens and I think you get that and I think when you added into. All of the other things that have happened bills this season all of that and injuries in the if you wanna say it's bad block which I do wanna say that the injury being as bad locked. You add in Charles clay not being with team being questionable. And maybe not being able to go. Because of the birth to birth of the child late while. Chris. What else could go wrong and I think anyone that saw that when you see that clay isn't gonna be there and isn't gonna play. You you'd turn of the the first person you see you say. Paris Milan to get mad about that I don't I don't think you are quite. You're not allowed to get mad about Charles clay if you were to miss a game because of the broad of a child at this separate any player. In Al the the news that he's out also probably leads many to say that. Well we'll listen because they don't throw the ball anyway so I've got Tyrod Taylor with Sammy Watkins is gonna do as much as he can but no clay. And no woods and no are in and I'd feel like my offense is in a ton of trouble. And during the week I asked how power question on a morning show on WGR. Whether or not there is more evidence to suggest that the bills have a good one in Tyrod Taylor or there's more evidence to suggest. That while he's not terrible but they should like no bond they should start to think about. A back up plan aura or plan B or maybe consider him plan B. And start to look for a new plan day. Is there more evidence to suggest that Taylor is the guy or more evidence suggested Taylor isn't the guy in games like today. Are tough. Because I wanna say it feels like he's an a no win situation. If it carries an action so that he carries the team and the offense clicks in ease. He does things well with whoever he has out there on what you're missing a lot of weapons but. You'd you have enough and he can still do that that was part of the story in Seattle. In Seattle as. Hit at Robert Woods all the sudden. My quarterback is connecting with a rubber ones on a consistent basis by A think differently of him now maybe injuries ark that big a deal because. It didn't get a lot out of Watkins if he'd get a lot of woods whoever might be like to me that's the true sign. Of a guy that this is worth keeping. Follow up the Seattle game with games against Cincinnati in Jacksonville in which the offense. And I had its share of troubles but they've they get the wins I ate I look at. The overall picture of this bill's team. And I get a sense that sold much of it as it goes to quarterback this goes to defense. Maybe this goes to coach. So much of it feels like it is right in the middle. But it does the quarterback in the fifteenth in the league how's the defense. Depending on which that you like you might find them anywhere from twelfth to eighteenth. Right metal. About the coach you know what do we what do we think the coach. Probably right in the middle in college when it comes a career win loss record I was looking up Jeff Fisher and look at Jack Del Rio. Del Rio's the coach and opened the bills will play today Jack Dario his career coaching record he is two games over 500. Jeff Fisher's career coaching record he is ten games over 500. And even the guys that you might think are terrible like Fisher's kind of butt of the joke these days he's over 500 Del Rio was. In Jacksonville sub 500 with Oakland five games over a so much of the league is about. Being in the middle there so much parity with this with this league. And I wanna one assail that when I look at the bills. And I watched them in of course you know you're you're rooting for the bills to when you want them to beat Oakland today. Oakland appears. To be taking steps out of that thick middle area where so many teams lift they are on the airway tube. Likely a division title and a top two seed in the AFC. And their defense isn't great but their quarterback does the job. The bills their defense isn't great quarterback does some of the job the defense does some of the job the coach is kinda in the middle aged. When you look at his team overall I think about where they are do they have any sort of direction. It's just this is this is like a tough time. On a valuation when you fire a coach and bring in a new coach you can immediately looked to elect our what's different or my getting different. When the bills brought in Rex Ryan was about all right good got a good defense got a good defensive coach this is going to be a perfect marriage the bill's gonna be a dominant defensive team. And really at no point has that happened. We have not seen long stretches of Greek defense from this team with Rex as the coach. And today is maybe the biggest test for the rest of the season. I I just I guess what I wanna ask today as part of our our show as we opened things up 8030550. When it comes to this team. Is there anything you feel like you can really bank town. Can you bank on the quarterback can you bank on the ball lying in the run game can you bank on the defense. You know like it just feels to me. That how many weeks moves on his five weeks left so weak 1213. Weeks thirteen. We look and say like and that's that's the team and there in the middle. With a lot of other teams they played Jacksonville to seven point gain play Miami it's so leaving you lose play. Cincinnati and you win by a few like. They just to me look like their right in the middle and over the course of this sixteen year drought they have. For the most part looked to me like they're on the but also in the middle but the the bottom half of the middle right seven in nine's six and ten. I wanna say it's banned the last two to three years a little bit better where the bills fit. Through the league and maybe that's a function of a good defense for a couple years and more company quarterbacking over the last two. But. It's just the soul much parity. And when I think about evaluating this team and what I wanna do with them. I sound like I'm harsh on Tyrod Taylor a lot because. I just get sick of being right here in in the middle in this this everybody's here who's not here. The answer is the quarterbacks that are at top in their prime who also have enough of a supporting cast you know you can't do it all on your own I know that the colts have. Andrew Luck and no one else so he gets stuck in the middle. And if you have a team like Matthew Stafford what does raiders team match devers a good severance having a monster year their defense is terrible so how's he doing he's all right. They are up probably contract when that division. But are they really a truly great team than it did a chance to win the Super Bowl but they have a lot of doubters. It looks like it's new England's to lose the injury to drop to go rock might bring Oakland in the picture a little bit but. And when you look at the NFL product it just it seems like there is parity which is I think it's what they want. But there's an awful lot of parity and am I like the poster child for that I don't have any right now and I'd love something to change of the next five weeks but. I don't really have any singular definable thing. All the than the run game I've got a running attack. That is near the that it is at the top of the league the other team that's right there with me that runs and as much in as effectively. Is on an eleven game winning streak the ball so like. It's not even like you're doing something that can't win the cowboys doing a lot they get I think more from their quarterback. But. Dallas on eleven game winning streak the bills six and five. I'm in the middle and I'm always in the middle and its gains like today that. Have an opportunity don't come elevates out of it if you get from six and five to seven and five with a game next week at home against another. Decent team. But here's where the bills in the course of two weeks can go from just stuck in the middle would everybody else to at least on the high end of it. These are games to pull you out of the mock out of the just. What fifteen tee and I can be fifteen is only sixteen teams the AC out of ten teams that are here. Miami buffalo Baltimore Cincinnati Pittsburg. I want to Kansas City here even though they're more wins. In cases about same team in Denver is right there of Denver loses today in the bills win in ninety. You can get you can get there. So it'll 30550 and 188550. To 550 that's the photo to reach me. You call its talk bills and raiders. They go out west. One of the things that this game will force and doesn't force manageable when I look at it. The raiders in the bills went on two different tracks. Back in that draft. When the bill's trade up for Sammy Watkins and the raiders take a loyal Mac. But what. A different. Approach to two teams took the bills went all mean let's be honest all in. On reluctance. Huge price they paid the gotta greatly talented receiver and they did it because their quarterback needed a big weapon on the outside EJ Manuel the time. They draft watch gains four games later watched and is now working with Kyle Orton and since then he's workers Tyrod Taylor. Khalil Mac. Is a one man wrecking crew on defense he went to that raiders team with a fifth overall pick right behind Watkins and then the bills. In the second round takes iris Quantico in a credible so they're offensive line did you wanna trade a second round pick so they traded the first the next year and the bills come out of watt gains in Quantico. In this where injuries obviously factory in but watch skins and Quan Joseph. Vs Mac and our car. A to me Derek Karr is. The thing you should be aiming to have to have. But when I talk about the bills and when we have our Monday show is where the defense gives up 28 points in the offense doesn't do enough and people call and wanna be mad at the defense but I am. I live in a world. Watching the NFL where I wanna be the raiders. It's easy to wanna be the hall of fame Super Bowl champion patriots of course everybody wants to be that. But I like to try and pick a team put oil who I see that I think looks good that hasn't won it yet. Right if you're a hockey you at a model like the Blackhawks now as they wanna cobbled it's easy to say. A couple of years back I was talking a lot about the lightning I'd like to be like Tampa. Tampa looks like they'll be winning for a long time Oakland looks like they'll be waiting for a long time. Today will be a game where I'll see Derek carded credit he's got most of his weapons varied looks helped the other there pretty much healthiest team offense. But I'll have Derek Carr who was a second round pick will be another quarterback that many teams passed on but looks like he is legit. I'll have that. And then I'll have the bills where it's about scrape by and deciding on a week to week basis whether or not the quarterback is good enough. And I I know we probably do it too much I'd bet they don't do in Oakland anymore they probably figured out in year one. That but in the sky looks like it okay great let's let's see what happens let's give him six years and see how coats. I saw an article over the weekend trying to compare Tyrod Taylor's stats to. The best quarterbacks in football through their first 25 starts because Tyrod said 25 starts. And I know how that generally looks I've seen it done before it's in done for EJ Manuel I've seen it done for J. P. Losman. Here's the spoiler alert generally in their first one in five starts there are some good and some bad from the best quarterbacks to ever play the game and and they pull away. And then they are much much better and you use that player as a while what he did his first 25 starts. If we're watching this bills team in watching Tyrod Taylor. I can see him I concede to good I concede give the play making ability but the the past the Watkins last week the 62 yarder was a sign of ability not only to hit a player with a beautiful pass but he worked his safeties with the size but there are definitely. Pockets of really good play from Taylor. They do have the number one ranked offense from our running standpoint and he gets more time to throw than any quarterback in the league. So while the weapons in the injuries to the receivers and the absence of clay today. Is a big deal. I know that my quarterback has the ability to lean on the run game and the pass protection that he's generally given on a play to play basis. So. I've got lots working for him a little bit working against him and I'm still kind of in no man's land if you ask bill spans do you think they'll pick up that option and do you think they should pick up that option. I think you get a lot of I don't knows and I am in our job here is to give opinions and tell you what we think. And there's one right here there is one I think there's what I expect. And there's also the reality that when it comes to Taylor. What they wanna do in January. Can change by march with nothing different. And a lot of outside factors if you go back to last season when the season ended we asked. Doug Whaley bill GM Doug Whaley about Taylor like all right what what what's the next step for him when he got to do. What is the F to do in order our contract extension. And Doug Whaley says Getty two things I were one to use the full field. And have a fourth court comebacks like -- fourth quarters where the money's me that's what dec Prescott's doing that to Matthew Stafford Stewart. Fourth quarter. That game in Seattle as well would you play that's great got to get in the end zone but that's what separates the goods from the greats is the guys did give him more often. And so Whaley says that at the end of the season. And then before Tyrod Taylor takes the field to trying prove he can do either one of those two things he signed. So I just wanna put that out there as the bills might end the season thinking. We've got a couple months I don't know we're gonna pick up that option they might think we're not going to and then two months later when of the deadline might be. March 1 from the nit pick it up. Because things change you know you get away from the season you feel a little bit different. You who talked all your scouts of the draft class you seed. Wells is available how guys play in the post season that there's lots still to figure out so there are not only. A number of scenarios that the bills could be thinking now but whatever they think now could change too. So industrial 550 I'm just talking about the quarterbacks of these two teams. The bills have a guy we're still kind of checking in on the raiders have a guy that I'd love to house. And I don't know how long it will be that way. Taylor has five more chances to do a lot he can do an awful lot finishing strong you finish strong. People go to the offseason thinking about how well the one for the last five. And he did it with injuries all throughout the receiving corps and got this team to 106 and they missed the playoffs. On a tiebreaker and then how do you feel after that you know so I think Tyrod got a lot of line and it's been fun watching in the season seeing the good. Waiting for more. Five more chances in today's a very very big one industrial 550 your thoughts do you think there's more proof to suggest he's on the right track. Or more proof to suggest that the bills might wanna start. Another plan plan a plan B but doesn't mean you release Tyrod necessarily but start to make a plan. Industrial 550 Indian buffalo any good morning I'm Buffalo Bills game it. Hello Andy. And on. But concerned about Tyrod and his shot. Okay. All is under 6 feet and I am ER. It properly in the secret receiver outfield he bought in over the offensive line. Anteater concerns as the prospect. And I don't yet changing Herschel to bigger and bigger sides it's a ball on the cold water. Yeah you know they talk about that that's what Brees is addressed EJ Manuel was because it thought he could handle the cold the bigger hands for. Games in December. In today's day in the summer if you're game and broke at third game at new airfield today. Would we need a quarterback that can throw it through the wind income for like I don't disagree I understand seeing any but generally. The guys that are good. But if I have a quarterback who's better than your quarterback. In summer. He's probably better than him in winter two and everybody's numbers come down of the winter when mr. snow it's cold it's windy. Yards per attempt but there's I'm was talking with a couple week's election when the bills played Cincinnati maybe. How yards per attempt once you get about twenty miles per hour wind gusts yards per attempt for all cornerbacks all of them. Drops about a yard to yard and half. Soul. Like thinking about. How the wind affects one quarterback it affects humble you know it affects everybody on the field. In terms of the size limitations it's been a concern from the start it remains a concern. One of the things I wanna see from this offense that we don't see. Is I wanna see Taylor using Watkins over the middle Sammy Watkins is that this is to be the biggest. Frustration point Watkins has been hurt OK let's say he's healthy. If he's healthy. Can they use in the way that O'Dell Beckham junior is used and they use in the way that Julio Jones is used IC guys with lots of yards after catch. And Watkins I do not see that and I don't blame Sammy Watkins for that. But I think about this passing offense like really in in your mind. What are you get you get deep deep throws on the field in which Taylor is very good he's been accurate of those since he became the starter for this team. You get those anti gay guys that are going in turning around running a curling a hook you do not often see. Throws to receivers that are on the move laterally. And in on a third and sixth. Sure I've got LeSean McCoy a fight throw it to him for two yards he has the ability to make guys miss. Starting from nothing. Not ever receiver has that. It's a passing attempt attack rather passing attack the kind of operates without that stuff and but when you say. Terrence limited because of how how tall Lee is other guys have overcome that Drew Brees is overcome that Russell Wilson's overcome that there there are ways to do it can tailor. It remains to be seen. I have my doubts they really don't use the middle field. Charles clay won't be in today. Charles claim will he be missed. Anybody notice mean they don't get on the ball the way they showed I am of the belief that of Charles clay was on a team that. Used in the way he supposed to be used. He would be one of the top five tight ends in football and yet. We whenever we have seen him with the ball he makes guys miss. He's got good hands he plays 95% of the snaps because he's very valuable in the run game. Like maybe he wouldn't be a top five pass catching tight end in terms of the dual threat and how important I would be I think you be one of the best. He is reversible. He is potentially. Really important if you use him in the right way. But we don't only have that so you kind of have that like to joke that goes widow Claes not playing today will anyone notice. 8030550. 1888550. To 550. On that Tyrod contract and on Tyrod as a valuation were 25 games in. A get to some of the numbers and some of the comparisons. That were in this piece that I read. And we'll talk about it you're 25 games into tie rods starter. Time is a starter fourteen last year eleven this year. Is that if you balance in the scale as the more to say. Keep this Colin or there more to say all right let's start another plan. And cover our bases a little bit and I want to make sure I'm I'm saying but I'm not telling you to give up and play carnal Jones today. It's just do you think they should start to cover the bases and make sure they've got another plan. Because that's why am. And the draft has. Options which of course Richard on the line 8030550. Its Buffalo Bills game here on Buffalo Bills radio network. I think he's pretty fresh loans news this week resilience. I don't think he's had over two and one Russian troops club plays for the person feels good those who saw moments like symptoms Stewart. Debt Palin bills' offensive coordinator on LeSean McCoy quick question on the bills' offensive coordinator. In just a moment I wanna ask you something because I got a tweet. I don't wanna respond to you. I want your thoughts on an as well you can text us you can tweet SI you can tweet me at Jeremy WG RE can text us and your texts into 55550. As we continue our Buffalo Bills game day coverage here on the Buffalo Bills radio network via early games. Howard's not 1 o'clock. Will of course keep you updated throughout those early games this is the Buffalo Bills radio network. And bill's fans know tell gates complete without the buffalo chicken or hot pepper across crawl from the original cry in April factory voted the best new product and national went past. The original controls the official finger food. Of WGR. It'll real 550 so here's question for end is an honest question I. I'd sometimes people think you know when when you ask something new asked rhetorically you're yes it is like a leading question I'm not I'm not attempting that sometimes I like to just ask a a straight up question. Two of get answers here. For example so if you can answer this question for me 8030550. Your opinion on this and I'll give you mine on the as soon as I finish asking it. Seoul. Had a two week mentioning that I conveniently ignored the Tyrod offensive coordinator for the first sixteen games was fired. That it was another adjustment the tailors had to work through and that is true. 2.5 games in the Taylor's career. Sixteen of them with Greg Roman. Nine of them with Anthony lent. When they made that mold. My prediction was. It really won't change anything. And it's kinda tough to Null because the same Twitter actually pointed out there and had watched in this whole time that's true and that's what's. Unfortunate. Part of the reason they made a change at coordinator was because. They're getting involved Sammy Watkins. An instant you walk and didn't play because he got hurt so I have not got a chance to seat. Anthony Lynn and Tyrod Taylor team up to try to get the ball to Sammy Watkins I also haven't seen Anthony lends offense. One of the things Lin said right away was that in a given an entire offseason given. Complete control he would run a different offense than the one that they do run I'm sure he has made changes along the way. By Lynn said he's running Greg Romans offense. And given the chance he would install his own. So if Linden Taylor both return next season which I don't think is a long shot. I bet one of the conversations one of the talking points for the entire offseason will be. Anthony Lynn building an offense for Taylor and McCoy at that point peace still of course ready ago. So the question is. Because that's all the background the question is does the change of offensive coordinator is that. An excuse for problems. And and and a way to explain why well he's not reached what he should be because there was a change in offensive coordinator. Because I tend to think the opposite which is they change him for him. But they changed coordinator because they wanted a better overall more reliable passing attack they wanted to a team that was good time. What we're looking back to why they fired Greg grown wider to happen. Because they play against the ravens and the jets or ravens have a very good defense is that turned out best against the Ron. On pace. To be better against Iran than the 2000 ravens were. If you want that. They could run the ball and we seen this team when they can't run. They don't pass. I don't the the passing game is set up by the run game and they've got it when they have the balance going there in good shape but if they get shut down in the run game and they get behind the sticks as they say. And the offense really kind of dries up so the question is 8030550. Have you noticed a change at coordinator but now that you've seen nine weeks of it. Is a much different like to meet does look that much different their offense is still. Okay they run the ball really well there with a number one rushing team last year there on track to be the number one rushing team this year. You know like they change their coordinator. They be kicked out Greg grown because he wasn't inclusive enough. And what's been different minor stuff put to meet that looks pretty similar. And that's not as this are really criticism like when they were a 12. It looked like their offense was having trouble but no injuries that think it would kind of bounced back holds bounced back with another coach which I think does happen from time to time. Air Israel 55 you go to Greg in Boca Raton Florida good morning Gregor a Buffalo Bills game day. I'm sorry figure you do doing great. Great eight Marty observation and I have a question as well are you seeking obviously. Drew Brees can do eat the cancer belt Robert quarterback Archie and our philosophy in my in this built around LeSean McCoy. You know armed. Our philosophy. Hindering our Tyrod Taylor. My question here is that he was assistant football more Flacco got hurt would be throwing thirty charts yeah. And number two is all we're not growing over the metal and again another also see. That we have you don't minimizing the stakes yup. Yep that's what got sort of horrible like that you can child going just might bock. Yeah you know it's funny Greg thanks for the question because. I think is a good thing to it's it it's a good time right about now you're you're gonna major offense and I think you're really need to score points. So is there are not throwing over the middle a philosophy I can remember right before Roman right after Roman got fired. Like powered by talking about that I said if Greg Roman didn't wanna use the middle field and he should've been fired. Anybody that thinks they can win in the NFL. With but most of the field not in play. I don't know how you do it. It just. You're talking of these other teams that are built from a quarterback like Carolina and in New Orleans Bowl both teams have worst records in the bills currently right bulls are six and five. They're both the F great quarterbacks that are on teams that are in worse shape than this one released from a record standpoint. So. Is it a philosophy that's the other thing other coaches holding him back. I thought we would find that out. Right they they change coordinators. And it became all right new coordinator. Month ago they are a lot of loose they're gonna they gonna give more. And what happened was release the story went debate. Tenet took some stuff away. And try to. I like seeing simplify Kazaa or that it's more simple but. They just. Try to give him less responsibility tried to say raw on the play as it's called. Once things and Anthony Lynn said early on was you know what what is gonna get up there and have more on the play as it's called. Okay and to me that's syndicate decent idea I don't think it's all that much different. He's contract ever sees a lot like last season he doesn't throw the ball over and that is a positive. I I don't think it should be viewed the way that. A lot of people viewed not turning the ball over in my opinion as a much bigger thing than it should be nobody turns ball anymore nobody. Here's the here's the stat where we went through its soul last. I'm sorry. Oh what Howard on Friday. Jim Kelly in his career one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL's histories and hall fame throughout his career Jim Kelly threw. 1513. Seventeen interceptions in the season wasn't wasn't odd at all to get Jim Kelly be picked off. Seventeen times in a year. You at seventeen interceptions gets here in the NFL right now. Mocked laughed that Kelly seventeen interceptions and 86 in 88 in 91 he had nineteen picks in 92. The Super Bowl years right the Super Bowl like the ninety's and ninety's bills picks for Jim Kelly. As 1719181713. In the nineteen in his final year like nineteen picks. You protect the ball but it was great. That's why I just think about the aero. Where an aero or passing you get more yards than ever you get fewer picks than ever to see a guy not put up the yards but. Line up with the picks. Think that's not. It's not worth that much to me to not throw any interceptions but there are guys that killed their teams with turnovers aren't that many. Fitz does you know like outside of fits who else. Who. Mean Matthews staff no no like. Dec pressed up protects the ball but he also. Throws touchdowns and makes big plays like. Philosophy is always something when you come that's like well is that the player ores at the coaches this is chicken or rag stuffed. And you can come down on whichever side you want to do they have a limited passing game because the coach is conservative. Or is the coach conservative because they have limited passing. I tend to think that if they had Erin Rogers or if they had Derek Karr that you know what that's a great compares if they had Derek Karr. What he throw as infrequently as this bills team throws and they still with a number one rushing attack and maybe. That might be in if that's the case then you know you've got questions about your coach in the philosophy. But. It and it looks to me it sure seems to meet the the more obvious thing is you coach to your talent you coach to what you have and if you don't have. A guy who's going to be. Prolific in the passing game you build the rest of the team around that and that's been the bills mindset let's build everywhere and get a guide it's not gonna kill us at that position and see where it takes us and Taylor I think Taylor is qualified enough to get a team to the playoffs I do. It could be this team. The question is. If you commit him long term can I then still maintain. Everywhere else that I need to maintain can I do without injuries. The injuries might be what does that what derailed this team. Lot of questions in there and was Taylor lake. Comparisons to other guys with a guy called this week as saying like he index press got put up the same numbers like yeah they they they put up similar numbers. But I don't think they're close. And today it will watch him play against Derek Carr and if the Al plays Derek Carr then like tomorrow morning I'll be right here. Fist pump in a high five and after what do you and I are right let's see it again that the Seattle game. To me this yogi was great. We came in that Tuesday morning like how about that did you see the game at Tyrod play that that the best he's looked as as a bills quarterback in my opinion. It was a loss but if if like three or four more games happen like that. Making plays. Run on the offense in command look at it like he was really impressive in that game. More games like that and I start tipped back the other way. But I don't 30550 bills and raiders today 4 o'clock asking you is if you like as you look at the scale which side is heavier. Signs that. It's not the right guy a stark. Planning for a back up and again could still turn or are you more of the I'm seeing enough signs that say this is the right track. In 030550. 1888550. To 550. Chairman white with you here on Buffalo Bills game day on the Buffalo Bills radio network as an addition some stats wise idea just some comparisons is appease that buffalo rumblings today. Comparing Tyrod Taylor. After 45 starts to some of the other quarterbacks in the NFL so you'll find that it's a buffalo rumblings back on that Delilah a Jeff hunter did some good work on this and some numbers. Looking at Brady Brees Roethlisberger Russell Wilson and Tyrod Taylor. And I always think almost always there's a flaw in doing that I'll tell it what that is when we get back. Cherry picking where your comparisons are going to be. It is a recipe for disappointment. So explain how we get back on what your calls as well in 030550. Which side eon is there more. Suggesting that this is get this goal right way. Or that may be a change it is due and again blunter today as evidence against the raiders industrial 550 Jeremy White with you. Protect itself from our friends over at federal meets the love federal meats and just telling you if you get that. WGR gained a kick off special off just ponds. On defeated army with that. And I would recommend is your pick numbers because there's twelve ground chuck first twelve Italian sausage burst like a hot pepper once. Fantastic. Jumbo shrimp concluded that as well. A pound of shrimp three pounds hot dogs to condiments here choice it's that VCR he gained a kick off special you can't get it on Sundays he can't go today but every Friday and Saturday. That buffalo plays you can pick that up grab that giant game day kickoff special. Have a you know I have a holly barbecue and load up on federal meets federally suck up the location closest to you your calls and why you can't cherry pick your comparisons next. The other eight. Or hurt your score and play a foursome you know they've done a great job utilizing the tell the weapons that they there. Put together to play at a boot the ball people's school board shall. I think he's got a great job they're strong or how we use very hopeful particularly true with the ability to look at their. That's just gallery I'll break it down the bills Jeremy Wright with you on Buffalo Bills game day. You know the Buffalo Bills rated network at your phone calls a moment I mentioned a piece. At buffalo rumblings dot com from Jeff Connor did a nice job. On looking at Tyrod Taylor's first 25 games you know how many times he threw for less than 200 yards. Vs how many times Tom Brady did merger breezed him or Russell Wilson didn't Ben Roethlisberger as well. Tyrod is twelve games below 200 yard mark. The other guys Roethlisberger had fifteen below 200. Russell Wilson had twelve. Drew Brees thirteen Tom Brady nine of his first 25 starts here's my here's my problem with this and when any any time as is done. And I and I'd I say this and saying I say this because I've been sitting in this chair for. Fourteen years about and I'm I'm not trying to make it sound like I'm jaded it's just I've seen this all before. It happens every time there used to be char and exports net did it. EJ manuals for fourteen starts against Peyton Manning Drew Brees Ben Roethlisberger. What it does every time you see a chart like that every time we see a comparison like that. It creates a false. Equivalency. Why am I comparing him only to those five. Can I look at Trent Edwards first fourteen games. Can I look at J. P. Losman first worked abut Derek Anderson's first four but you just pick the good ones. And then look at their first 45 games or first whatever. And then compare someone else to go good ones and think well he's pretty close to the good ones. Not a pretty close to some bad ones maybe better than some of the bad ones but. Just. Putting it into a data pulled a Sarah put an opening next to something that it really doesn't have any business being compared to and fifteen years ago when Tom Brady started the league didn't throw it the way it does now. Mean Brady was Roethlisberger both been through all that much and since then they've become. You know monsters to a point Brady had a fifty touchdown season so beaten be wary of that any time you see. Player acts not just Tyrod it's EJ it's Ryan tanning hell it's everybody. Compared to five successful quarterbacks. In your instantly being misled. In my opinion in 030551808550. To 550 and except go to Jay in Pittsburgh. Hey good morning Jeremy. Yet though when you get Tyrod Taylor here's my. You OK so he's he's he's not at all. So you you you'd look guys like Russell Wilson and her re there they re making it to the middle of the field that they actually climb up into a pocket. The only guy on this team what ever seen Hewitt out of the recorder back hard Tokyo the surprisingly not been easy. EJ Manuel Tyrod Havel to confiscate mentality first though they retreat from any kind of pressure and they're immediately think an escape. And they're not thinking of climbing into a pocket and throw into window they have great way to picky about all enough. The we've got to create a window like giving up into the pocket. You've never done that and that's why take away the middle of the field to become extremely predictable and in the other thing is I don't think truck is creek at all. And that's why keep them perpetrate network thing going where you know it's. It's got to be there wide open in order he's not throwing it at those limitations are guy. Who'd been in the league for a long time I think what a lot of reps either happen or you don't and I think he dealt with now and I mean that there. Well you settle up there Jake and you abused a phrase that we heard from. Lorenzo Neal. A wanna get to a wink or your back we'll touch base with so departure to climb the pocket runs O'Neal. Works in Oakland we talked him this week he said it's exactly would Derek Carr does exceedingly. Well. So if you're watching today in your watching the two of them. That's something to keep an eye on car doing it very well and he said Tyrod you know he he does get out on the move that's what I liked about the Seattle game. Was that it's out on the move but still looking down the field as repress Scott does so well the lot of guys do Tyrod has like its bear sometimes. Isn't there enough I. It's like any east any athletic endeavor any sporting event but can you Katie do you Kenny do it yes Katie do it enough. That's what did she paid that's what gets you fired that's it we know Rex can shut down Tom Brady beat him once before twice in the playoffs. But if you only do those two times you never again. It's the second the job done stuff up world out there you know eight at 30550 double bills game day continues next here on the bubble bills radio network. Now. Brought to you by northwest may. Make the switch to northwestern get back to winning. Good morning good afternoon I should say lake games out in Oakland Hills. And raiders this the Buffalo Bills radio network. Talking about. This match up. What you expect from your offense your defense that started the show tuchman on the bills kind of look like to me. The embodiment of a lot of NFL teams kind of right in middle defense in the middle cornerbacks in the middle. Running games of the top. And when you look at all the teams the AFC fighting for playoff spot and still alive he got a lot of stuff just kind of hang out in the middle the bills are right there weather report with that from soccer pot Jon a moment as he checks in from Oakland Geico brings you the weather report fifteen minutes could save you 50% or more. On car insurance call 10947. Auto what is a Geico not count today. We're getting ready for that 4 o'clock kick off to the bills and the raiders but John Murphy mark Kelso or call the play by play live from the northwest broadcast with. Make the switch to northwest and get back to living today's broadcast is probably presented by. I units Westin New York's only organ eye tissue and community blood center check yesterday to help save a life. 8030550. So the question I had today for you is I sought peace at buffalo rumblings that counsel wrote about Tyrod us. 25 starts and how he stacks up rather get into the minutia of it if you wanna check it out you can go do that. But quick. Let's do a little bit eyeball test the premiere scholar said. You know passing the smell test if you are evaluating this quarterback right now so far there's definitely been good. And probably better than most of the quarterbacks that have been here in the last fifteen years there's definitely men some good. There's definitely in times and you want more but are relieved. Too many disasters like he doesn't kill the team that often maybe the opener was the only time against Baltimore with the offense had nothing going. Today there in Oakland that's against the team you should be able to get some points against I don't think the bills can keep up. Derek Carr is a quarterback good enough to exploit the fact that the bill secondary is banged up. He's good not to exploit the bill secondary to wasn't mango probably I think car and the raiders have a date today. And Taylor's got to keep up that's a tall task so it's an opportunity here for Taylor to us way. The knee and move the needle but for guys like me I am more of the took to me all that we've seen there's more to indicate the bills should. Start another planned to run concurrent with this one you know if they end up picking up that option on Taylor I get it. I get it you have a chance to win your six and five and I'll bet even a game like today. I'm thinking back to all the quarterbacks they've had throughout this drought today I'm. I'm interested to watch him excited and Taylor is a player that is he gets eyeballs to the screen he makes you watch we caller during the weeks say. At least I'm entertained you know. And he might not be great but it's been on finding out in the team's much more watchable and I agree with that the most part I do agree with that. So there's an opportunity for Taylor says sway the needle back. To the other side like a set for guys like me who generally think there's more to indicate we've seen all he is. Then there's going to be more coming because really there are two questions on Taylor not any quarterback. Where's this ceiling have you seen it and is this ceiling good enough for you. Right now the ceiling is not good enough for me if we see more then I'm out on talk him down there I'm ready. But this ceiling right now what we're seeing so far this is not enough I am not out of the opinion that. You should try to get by with quarterbacking I wanna win and and I wanna be like the raiders are they're winning with quarterbacking maybe that'll today the degree. But. I think you win the passing game for the most part. 8030550 Greta this team isn't built that way so I guess we can't exactly ask for all the time but. Anyway industrial five feet to join us we'll check with soccer pot GO in a moment it's more calls in your let's go to Chris in buffalo 25 starts in Chris. Your thoughts on Tyrod a navy the thought you might have on on him in their performance today. Dog and two short broad middle about what I'll I'll. I that you got your abilities it is in short my I think today. He should but I guess at least semi file on the ground. Maybe maybe Suharto and but I like I lectured about such that it requires a gamer not a drive out there. As cargo ship bought that thing is short. It's something that you know we we've wondered about and I mention this in the first hour that. At the end of the season Doug Whaley said he wanted to see two things from Taylor he wanted to see the ability is a full field. And closing out games in the fourth corps. And this year they he have done that one time the Jacksonville game technically counts as a fourth corps come back making it the second but they've had. With Taylor down in the fourth to win the other Rubin Tennessee. So this Cincinnati they got the lead earlier instance that anyway like you know how how specific arena or we gonna be when it comes to. Well there were down a point on the first play of the fourth quarter to add those two things wrong Whaley were talking about. If you're looking at the two things have the two things really happened. Not yet a full field certainly is not and that might be a function of injuries. Or in this case today childbirth. Which is gonna keep Charles clay out of lap today in no clay. My prediction for today no clay is just as big. As if they threw him he is very important in the run game. The injuries they have a receiver are also very important in the run game. Mark he's good when in a place where Robert Woods should be makes a difference from Iran blocking standpoint. When you've got Watkins and woods those guys are either big golf or tenacious enough and strong enough and committed especially Robert what's the run blocking. When Robert Woods got a lineup it's not just a damaged the passing game it's a big it's a big blow the running game he's important there. And how might get. Get a full balanced offense and got injuries on. Our injuries are receiver that make it so I'm limited. Injuries at receiver that make my running game also limited like a lot of things here are to meet stacked up against the bills and it is simultaneously. The best and worst time to take a look at the guy under center it's the worst because he's operating with. A skeleton squad and it's the best because if he still does it beat that's that's that's the mark of a guided does it and can. Obviously can do more but. A guy that's worth investing in authorities hurt he cared your victory like all right. How many times can he do that because I'm going to be hurt. I'm gonna have to overcome things I can remember the impact of the Trent Edwards days that what I was my biggest thing was. He's OK if everything goes great but so often in football. Not everything's going great. You know it's it's. Not closed it's not a vacuum you don't get to just do whatever you want there are other teams endlessly try to exploit what you don't do well. And I don't know how much the raiders can do that today co will Mac is definitely some of the worry about let's bring in south departures on the eighteenth he outlined. Sell good morning from Oakland how is it out there. To little. It's it's maybe Chile for Coke that morning let it be nice it's it's not orbit where it is here that is where you are I think. Private 62 degrees at kick off for so which is gonna be pretty nice or at least that that's gonna get up to about that. Later today I guess on the other it's a nice day here night's football Oakland about forty here it's not too bad that beautiful yeah yeah I think we're adding or mid fifties or. And could fall day. Sell the the topic ahead today opted to start off with Tyrod Taylor I just mentioned in might be the best and worst time to evaluate him because they have such significant injuries and the Charles clay absence. In the run game that will hurt. You know clay isn't important player who plays a lot so. What do you think we get from this offense today given that Watkins is doing what he can no woods snow Hardin what Goodwin is good my goal. Yet what should be good wins ago. I think that I think it. Really it's all depending on as long as Sammy Watkins to play give you know as many snaps as he can and I know he was limited last week that they did. You'll still be. Limited but maybe not quite as limited though right get more give you more as long as he's the key to their whole receiving corps. And that situation is long to see anyone gets can play you're gonna have to double team him and I think that. Impact you more than. You know not having woods or Hartman and I know that those guys are you wrote a to have all three no doubt you love that one of them on the field but usually the key here it because if you don't have CME. Back at the double team either those guys maybe at certain situations apartment that's got to be accounted for pretty much every play so I think that's the key is on the scene you watch it plays I think that. You know you can be okay and passing game because he's gonna occupy two defenders. Most likely but as far as the other situations concerned look I think last week actually. We want obscene. Nick O'Leary on the field even a little bit more certificates of snaps he actually was on the field for. Eighteen of the 55 snaps 33%. And I know it's not what Charles clay is 84%. But he's been getting more snaps he actually got to look at the end zone as you remember yep and it throw that was a little bit hired him. I think that he's gonna have to be a bit more back to today he'll probably have to be that three down tight end. So. You snap counts have gone up and I am against this week a BO what like 70%. Because no likes area what makes he had yet to wonder how they. I'll take that go to jail Christian actually knows tight end or does use I think he widgets. On Yugo and portly spread offense. The tight end is much do you use to Roosevelt in more. To help out blocking situation because. You agree block the she typically opt for this last week and touched on. I want. In this on the field so. We'll see how they react to expect nickel here to get the picture. That you'd make and run against this Oakland defense. Yet they can't I mean this this is an Oakland defense Jeremy that it's. The overall numbers. Have not been that great for them this year now they have played better as a way I think it's a little bit deceiving. It when you look at their rankings and you say to yourself when it looked at thirtieth in the league you know against the run while you know the last few weeks even point much better I think that. Not coincidentally as coincided with really what Khalil Mac has been able to do the last 45 weeks you know the first. Even may be happy the year is what happens a collegial type of season but he is really turn nine. As of late and this defense has been much better as of late but the overall numbers. I mean occupancy in the rankings lies and there are a lot of things that occurred here the bills at least. Rushing yards per game they're 26 in rushing yards per play their thirtieth in the NFL so I mean there are a team that does give up. Art against the run it hurt the path they're actually very similar. I'm the bats against the pass an area that run those numbers just aren't very. So Roger joining us here on the eighteenth tee hotlines and continual Buffalo Bills game day and the Buffalo Bills radio network with Shawn McCoy in this game. You know sell that the Jacksonville game. I ask you a trick question did he have a good game that they have a good game running the ball against Jacksonville. Now it's been a good life. They get play helped out the numbers. But I will say that I think in the second half. The bills that in much better job obviously. Of figuring out in oh how to attack. The Jack in the jags really overwhelm them a little more speed and I think they were faster the bills gave them credit for thought they would be. On their front seven and what they're really notice when I went back to watch the tape on that game Jeremy is and I think this was you know obviously had to be the game playing going it. When LeSean McCoy took a step. Basically people linebackers took a step with them and they were just Miree him you know usually. In most deepens as you have. Near back so to speak so one guy has won back when as another could be the quarterback in that guy goes every step every once seem to be stepping publish on the court that matter. And they basically said we're gonna shut down the Shawn McCoy and work to make Tyrod Taylor beat us well. The bills figure that out so what they did was they use that speed and that first read aggression. Against Jackson you saw the result on the first play they start off left he cuts back right everybody's flown one way because that's where it was Sharma Colt McCoy started ago. And I think that's how they started to really get some things going in the right. Colonial Mac something you'll be worried about cell they cannot obviously disrupt the bills any number of ways is he going to be basically. Terrorizing Jordan mills today are hot what do I think this all plays out. Yet I mean that's going to be obviously that they match up you know this is a big game the big spot for Jordan mills to be in and those are gonna have to help them there's no doubt there's a shaven and the clue Mac is an all pro player. He is one of if not the best overall talent on defense the National Football League so. I don't think there's any Xiamen you know having to double team a guy or help out with them if you have to but there are gonna be one on one situations that Jordan else finds himself in and he's gonna have to hold its own. Against Lou back I think obviously what helps out George mills as he is a quarterback behind them that can move around it it's like the pocket he can move up he can ride. And that might force climactic kinda. Not be able to pin his ears back so to speak to just go right at the quarterback so I think that will help but we'll see it they keep. Jerome Felton help bottle that sometimes you know on him they chip on the a what they give me the tight end does that this is this is a big match up. Obviously if you go back though Jeremy you know the last couple of years. Think about the best offensive linemen the bills have played they've done a good job on them in this is out it's Greg Romanoff answer it anyway and it's JJ watt. Erich O'Donnell and she elected I think those would be three of the best players they've had to face. They've done a very good job against them because legal into the game with a specific plan for that player. You mentioned Greg Roman and Anthony lend sell I was I brought this up we've seen nine games with Lynn and Tyrus got 25 games sixty was Roman nine games with Lynn. Are their drastic differences minor differences or do you think what we've seen is that things have kind of just drifted back. Canada where they were may be they're they're doing different things but the overall output of the offense to meet. It's really comparable to that I don't see a big difference. The only thing I see different is personnel usage. I think it's you're seeing Jerome Felton on the field more you're seeing nick O'Leary a few more you see Michael asleep on the field more now now that could be because of circumstance because of injuries there's no doubt about that. But really that's what started happening originally I tell you. I was told after the great Roman dismissal. One of these things that this staff did was they got together said we need a meticulously and feel more. This is the guy who can play and you've seen that now yup they went away from ever a couple of weeks I think any should have been on the field maybe more than might be game with LeSean situation but. This is that I think that's the biggest difference I see is the personnel usage even nick O'Leary he's been on the field more. Under this offensive coordinator that he was created albeit for only two games. Under the last one but the playbook hasn't changed they're doing pretty much the same things. They have a lot of the same adjustments throughout the game and how they attack different opponents and things like that I will say though I I've been. I think kind of surprised that you don't eat it Palin is not afraid to just kind of mix things up then he'll go wild cat in Togo on ballots lie he has a lot of different things and out. Have you noticed last week to according Glenn was flipping to the right satellite that was a big adjustment they made. They went unbalanced be to take advantage of that aggression and trying to outflank. The Jacksonville Jaguars there was a few several plays in the second half recording Glenn. Slid over to the right side went on ballots and that's an if that it would affect it. And it's worth mentioning opened on just two and a soft they're frustrated that I didn't mention that Sammy hasn't been a part of Anthony home course at Cleveland's offense because. There's two things here Sal trying to evaluate if we're talking a Tyrod and as it's insane things and Anthony Lynn like. Are the offense looks pretty good looks kinda limited if they can't run it then their passing game suffers bought. He said when he got the job that he was Enron Greg Romans offense and you know make some changes to it. If he comes back next year or two which I would think is a pretty likely scenario. Is he gonna change the offense it would be installed his. Owned do you think. It's a great question because I'm not only did he say. I'm running great topic Jodie said it's not the office I would Bryce at that yes he did it yet he says he said this is not my office so it's interesting. You know look at throughout history coaches is what coaches do all the time. They borrow things from coaches they learned under they borrow things from coaches that they see around the league but especially guys. That they work with I would not be surprised he left a lot of what Greg Roman does so because he says hey. I realize this could work like patterned after work and I can incorporate it into what I want if if Palin as your next year I do think you see. A bit of a different a style offense playbook things without your accuracy everything but you'll see some of the sprinkle you know yeah they'll sprinkle it in a he's gonna get head coaching opportunities oh yeah I mean at least I should say interviews he will get a head coaching interviews he's already had to head coaching interviews that he wasn't even a coordinator. And now he's coordinator a team that legally in Russia. We ask yourself this is a trick question and I think Gil no what. Mean by it if Anthony Lane changes the offense is that continuity. Sit and meet the same guy. It's the tee it right well let's talk about Alec you know what second year in the same system is gonna be good for a guy if the guys days but he changes the system won't we do with that. I would have to know it dumped a cop out the answer here and I would have to know what terminology he's using Tammy does he completely changed because he can have a different style is the same terminology. You know he can use as a lot of lot of coaches run a totally different play books but they have the same you know. Colors calls that number calls and things like that it just where guys lined up at that you know. I think it's still continuity with the players the personalities and you still have. Shawn McCoy if you have Tyrod Taylor we don't know if you have all off at deployment seem offensive coordinator. To me it is continuity and he's just changing some things but to me continuity is familiarity with. The personalities of the people around you getting comfortable with how they coach and you knowing each other's strengths and weaknesses. Industrial 550 few more minister without supper pot yeah so. Derek Karr against this raiders I'm sorry to insist bills' secondary. To me that's the scariest matchup of the day the bills are not healthy their. And Darby snow right armies out. The east the secondary has already missing Aaron Williams at safety I've we have had an adventure. And while Corey white jumping in for Darby has been good at times. I'm not confident. He found Seymour put your big boy pants on the out pretty much that's what happens today Jeremy keep that Seymour is gonna start opposite Stephon Gilmore most likely. That was the hell are we call and into the into the nickel spot where obviously he normally plays out of the that's a big issue at all. Although these and rotating with Seymour and the court weight is going to play safety call at quarter Coca he's gonna he's gonna be a guy that he's been working apple spots this week. He were to pull spots all last week or mostly safety actually but had to go in for our beat. Once they had the entry so that's kind of the reason why there were some issues going on their butt. Here to tell you if war the second half a Corey white is playing a lot corner that's bad news that means because keep that Seymour didn't hold up country economic toll outlets say this. Today their car. Is going to throw it keep on Seymour a lot in the first half. He's going to test him he's gonna see there's a rookie out there he's gonna know the as Michael Crabtree of our Cooper that he is going to test to see more today. He by Seymour is a very very big key to how the scheme on faults that he's from California right with the from LA. This nation and LA LA is that story about outgoing US he had you know his mom and all that stuff in and passed away is it incredible story incredible journey. Like he got Seymour he has all the skill lucky he's six foot in front of 4340 that is that is a big time quarter rate there is when you look at that just that those measurable 80s80s. Isn't kill the Steve at all he's been OK but he has never been put a situation quite like this this kid is gonna get tested today and if he's up to the test. They can do some things but if he is not it can be along date that they'll second. Final minute here or sell one thing I said they'll get your your reaction is your thought on this the them the NFL has a lot of teams in the middle. And the bills are one of those teams six and five you know you lose your six and six you're still the same spot this game today and took a next week. Raiders and and Steelers it's an opportunity to kind of pull away from the middle pulpit. Because the bills represent was so many other teams are which is kinda good. And kind of flock. But out of. You know I look at these other teams like the Steelers the Steelers are great example for me because of their team the Pittsburgh Steelers beating their mystique I think there are a lot better and they now. They're kind of just like the bills ready mean they have good gives it back games that go to Philly absolutely crushed you know they lose at home to a a good Dallas team like they lost to teams that. The are either not as good as immediately they should've beaten but they can also go out there and throw around in winning game by scoring 47 points because they have. That Roethlisberger Antonio brown and I think that that's just kind of with look Kansas City right mean yeah they they win they win these games you think oh my gosh how did they win that they come home they lose to a team like Tampa Bay. And you don't they don't get to twenty points so all these teams are very similar and at the raiders are ahead. Of those teams I think they've had a really. Special season as ours the fourth quarter is concerned the last two minutes they've had several games they wanna like that they're playing good football there's no doubt. But they have lost every team has lost every team has lost Jeremy. I don't care we talked about the Dallas Cowboys. And you know think about what their secondary to be if they get into a shoot out of that press packet holed up in a situation like that he talked about New England offensive line worry sometimes you know now that they don't have gras would have surpassing even look like. Every team in this league has flaws and I don't put any team head and shoulders really at this point about that from the first trip to the second group to be. Missed our spot yards cell talked to a little bit get some eater something you know hang out there are you absolutely think I'd sell about you on the AT&T hotline quick update on hockey. Our poll Hamilton tweeting that Dan miles ms. says Josh Georges has it displaced fracture in the in a foot. And is. Week two weeks so we'll take view weeks for Josh Georgia's on defense cool look off day today. Taylor for dune on an able to go tomorrow so the sabres might have to make a call up if cool coughs not ready another call. That's gonna be ugly too well because I was in Rochester on on Friday to see their game and their defense is depleted much to say that. I'm not good. 8030550. Chairman Roy here Brad Wilson here as well it's Buffalo Bills game being here on the Buffalo Bills radio network. He's not turning the ball over is making correctly. He's been able to write these two were. Is great arm talent coming through ball from a variety of arm angles you know as soon as often assume you know certain players that were talented offense. We have workflow. They're tough for a college football playoff have been revealed that. Tell you that moment that's Anthony Lynn right there. It is the Buffalo Bills radio. Network chairman white with GO. And buffalo Israel or eight of 830551888550. To 550 to join us. This is right of the so the college football player if they did it again. They did it wrong the reveal me you can say what you want about the four teams the import seems wrong I again. First they list Alabama that's number one number two is Clemson. Clemson number three Ohio State. And then on the screen they've got the number for the number five and number six K guys for drama sick. Put five or six on the screen next. In fact put six and then five. Leaving for open for why how could someone also snuck and they just listen for sole plastic three Washington is four. Five and six Penn State in Michigan. So. Ohio State does not win the Big Ten that they get in as the third overall seed. People Penn State will probably be upset justifiably. Upset. There's your college football playoff so Alabama Washington is one game climbs in Ohio State is another. My own personal opinion. The clintons pretty weak to. But that's just me once and is a pretty weak too and I've been Ohio State beats him and I bet we get Alabama and Ohio State. And there you go that's my opinion on the college football playoff 803. All 551888550. To 550 it is. Buffalo Bills game all right so I want to tell a little roof for today. And New York Times playoff machine is the best way to and so look into the sites in the 1 o'clock games start soon of course 25 minutes away Howard Simon Libyan. According to the New York Times playoff machine the bills have a 27%. Chance of making the playoffs currently. That's every every scenario played out the odds the bills make hitter about 27%. How does that change with a win today. Answered. It goes up to about 40%. So I mean nice 40%. If they beat Oakland today. If they lose to Oakland today this is without any other games. Factoring in if they lose to Oakland today and ready for this the chances they make the playoffs go around 10%. That's important to know because even if they run the table after today. You'll lose to Oakland and win for our road to close the season. They are still only a coin toss to make it because the AFC has teams lined up to get to ten and six. So I think today is not. Dead if they lose. But it really leaves zero. Room for any error if they lose two games. They're pretty much toast. Lose one and run the table you're still about 50%. Of the game today is important. Now other. Factors other games. That you wanna keep an eye out for who to root for today. The bills I mentioned if they win today there about 40% chance of making the playoffs you want the falcons to beat the chiefs. Which would be reasonable to expect frightened them seem too bad the chiefs lose you want the ravens. To beat the dolphins. That's a much more important game for bills fans in terms of who you're rooting for. You want the jaguars. To beat the Broncos. How likely is that I don't think and percent good. Then again I didn't think Denver was good last year and they on the Super Bowl and I still feel like they should not one. But I think that's just me I'm weird like that he's never convinced by Denver last year. They want it this year I'm definitely not convinced. About Denver. And could they lose who Jacksonville team that the bills just played a good. Denver has losses coming they can close out with a bunch a loss anyway more report today. The giants. Over the Steelers. You want that one as well giants over Steelers. And if all of those things happen if I give you every one of those games. Today. Falcons ravens jaguars bills giants both of the biggest ones. The bills' playoff chances move from starting today pt percent. Up to fifty. I'm into bills when I go they go from point forty in of those other games play out that way. I'm at 50%. They defy swap a mall. The bills win but everything else goes poorly. 30%. So there ego. If the bills went today worst case thirty best case fifty. And again a lot of work still to do and winning today is gonna be tough can be really tough. So it'll 30550. Your prediction here what you might think might happen I am not optimistic about today. But if there's there's. Two different things that can happen. I can get a vintage Rex Ryan defensive performance that locks up their car and I get Tyrod Taylor get it done offensively. And it would change the way a lot of people feel about this team six and five is six and five. They're wins that there wins to this point in the season. Carson Palmer's the best cornerback they've beaten Blake portals Andy Dalton Colin camper next. Case keen on the it's not then a really impressive list of quarterbacks that they've beaten. And playing against anybody that's really good. It's then. Tough you know enjoy the Andy Dalton victory that comes an injured AJ green on the third play of the game this raiders team. They've got good weapons and got a guy that's pull the trigger at quarterback that. I think this is as tough as it gets for the rest of the season for the bills. Ben Roethlisberger here I'd be more worried about Derek Kerr today and what about Roethlisberger here Ben Roethlisberger stats on the road. Pretty well documented for 34 years out Sony goes to Indy on the X giving. A different quarterback on the road get Roethlisberger here. I think I've got a good a good look at that game. And it's gonna come down to whether or not this offense can get plays out of Taylor when they need them. And if the run game can be relied upon because when they do we know this when they run the ball well. Therein are there any game. That you can't blow the bills out while they run the ball well and they get explosive plays the game big plays from McCoy. If the run game is on today. They've got a shot quick email comes in from Steve to the bills game day inbox that's just waited W chair by fifty dot com. Seabirds in for me the answer to is Tyrod the answer falls in the middle like everything else with the bills as you've pointed out this morning and just don't see the progress this season and as weak points and I would assume the GM would agree. The bills are fortunate to be in a decent draft situation this year there pretty well stocked with players with the exception of TVs and offensive line depth so. Drafting other cornerback in the third or fourth round should be a priority in my opinion. Karr dale as a significant. Possibility to graduate at the start of a far from a sure thing I like what I've seen so far. I. And I guess I should apologize I maybe I don't take a pre season seriously enough I didn't come out of the pre season. Thinking about when a caller today say the carnal Jones climbed the pocket better than any other quarterback on the team I didn't really feel that. That's up to say that I disagree I just it didn't it didn't really jump at me the same way. Carl Jones in college I mean you saw a lot of the ability there he won a lot of games which is worse worth pointing out. I was a part of the big Latino won a lot of games and but I just I don't for whatever reason I've kind of got like a mental block. Maybe it's because deck press Scott is big is the middle round quarterback who came out of that trap that's going to be stuck yet if they're gonna beat who like it's just such a long shot to begin with and I know I'm not foolish enough to a tie one success to the other that's not that's not what I'm doing. I just don't think about Jones that way. And maybe the bills do you know they they use the pick on him. And maybe that's something that they're looking at down the line I don't know. I would spend a draft pick on one EJ Manuel won't be on this team so liking go tailor Jones and a draft pick. Second round one up right. This seems getting Reggie wrangling back this year go ahead and pretend wrangling gets picked this year in the second round what you got an extra second pick or something like. Whatever it is justified I would draft quarterback almost no matter what. You don't get five games to convince them not to address the quarterback no matter what and then Taylor beats tech guy and keeps him. On the sidelines you know that's called it's called every team that has a good quarterback they'll draft them. And they don't see the field and if they do for a couple games and look pretty good on the you can trade him. But I am. I'm pretty much in the same spot as the email or. And also mentioned was thing if you if you're on Twitter during the games reelect all 22 breakdowns. Copper one there's a Twitter account cover one bills. That's a great account to you like all morning to you can look at all the stuff it is. The great account to follow. And when it comes to break now Tyrod like you'll see good you'll see bad it's not just about him McCoy good bad. One of the things that cover one and written earlier today was that. You know Tyrod is a weapon there's no denying it defensive coordinators have to game plan for him and I do agree. They game planned for his legs and we you can see like some teams do a nice job of kind of bottling them up and other teams. Just look what they're not prepared at all you know so today will he be able to use his legs. Defenseman of the raiders are gonna go man coverage on a lot of the receivers on him turn two on the backs run and deepen at Tyrod run all over. That again Geico we'll Mac in pursuit yet another wrinkle to this game. 8030550. 188550. To 550 power joins us at top of the hour Buffalo Bills game he continues here. On the Buffalo Bills radio network. We always talk about the sudden change. And an opportunity to get the ball back off its hands so that that's that's a big point of emphasis that we've we've done well in the area in the we're still waiting to play out. Play a complete game to play well from start to finish you know who were were working hard were preparing you know we don't wanna have to. You get into the fourth quarter and and Mike's place there a silly game you know we will play well throughout the game. And does that's what we're focused on right now. Kyle Williams the bills in Oakland today this foray. 4 o'clock start here on the Buffalo Bills radio network Jeremy White with you. Thanks for joining us thanks for being a part of today's show. I just waited out the troops there. The tradition. That this is how it goes the. Here's what you want bills fans wanna win. And Atlanta Baltimore the giants and the jags. That's it tradition this time of year who else you want to win games and fortunately it's not just about. In LB and if your Miami today I think your think can beat Baltimore went. If Miami wins. They've moved to have eaten for which is. Significant in 084 looks good on Miami they've won six in a row. The bills. Had Miami on the ropes Miami is one and four at that point not disarm Miami beat Pittsburgh before that. But six and are on the bill set on the ropes and didn't finish them off. And now Miami sits at 84 with a chance to. You know our chart seven a for the chance to get date for. Industrial 551888552. Buckets it's good and on a cellphone and your Buffalo Bills game day. Like Jeremy thanks particular Cobb got a question for you. And listening to you this morning he needed at this that there may be very dismissive. Cartels now. So my question for you is already pay the bills are serious about developing him he doesn't seem to suit up he never discussed. And I I have a different view of him that I'm wondering if what's what's your view than you use your high annum. I am very hearts. Have been very an incentive Kaya. And I saw the pre season games which you're very impressed. No I'd at all on me me it's that it it did I didn't mean to say that it wasn't impressed and I guess like the way that I would answer question is this it's not armed. I think he got right to he said are they not developed and developing him. They might be I just kind of don't feel like they give that a real thing yet you like first they've got a decision to make on Taylor and I don't know that there are set on that one yet. So it's almost like as long as Tyrod Taylor is your is your quarterback but he and he and Carl Jones are two different. A two different types of quarterbacks and I'm not looking at Jones to reboot the runner at the same way. That's what Taylor is Taylor is is a dual threat in a fumble on a Jones in my trying to develop him. Into a into a pass her like into an NFL passer they can they can play at this level I guess my answer to your question is I don't really believe that the bills are. Are developing that way I don't think that's that's currently there primary motivation. And maybe that's why I just don't. Think about cartel and that way. OK I could be wrong and what does that. I get that thing I'll thank you and so curious about sir Harry well yeah. I mean I hope we can move onto another key in them because I think to connect another cable and a well. What I think he's got bloody time he's young he just got drafted yet and I could be wrong about that. Then the bills are just in such a win now mode in win now mindset that when people talk to me about. Or bring up carnal Jones don't mean to sound like I'm dismissive of it. It's like. Trying to think other comparisons here like if you have a team. That drafted for instance Paxton lynch with the with the Broncos. I do believe that the Broncos have a long term plan to give the job the Paxson lynch. He's first rounder you know when you draft a guy Derek Karr on the second round if you're if you're. Drafting players high enough. To me that becomes easier to see as this is our developmental quarterback the world gonna use in the future when you get to the third fourth. To me that becomes a taking a flyer. We think he's got some ability we'll see what happens out there. But we don't exactly treat it like a plan and maybe they do. I really don't the likelihood of finding a quarterback in the for the third third round and that out of a fourth round it just drops off so much. You know like when the patriots drafted Brady I don't think they ever thought about developing him. Maybe they did but he got thrown in in my home. Develop on the job but you know it's it's kind of homework so thank you for the phone call and it's good question and gave me a chance gonna clear up more of how I feel like it might be just me. That if you're taken in the fourth round and don't think you're gonna be developed. Advocates gotta like it's on you if you can rise up and show everybody that you are. Under drafted. Well you know the job will find you eventually. 8030550. 188. By fifty to 550.
