On Sunday at new era feel the game right here like of the buffalo WG art portrait you buy it. Last night the Seattle Seahawks clinched the NFC west title hammering the Los Angeles rams when he 43. The first game for rams' interim head coach John Fox holes took its first loss and now the rams have lost five of the road Seattle. Champions of the and a few west patriots playing former cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd off waivers last night. Just today or do it today after he was released by the cardinals and three days after he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence in Arizona the patriots in need of wide receivers. They only have four wide receivers on the roster the most of the season Danny Amendola. Came up with a medical injury a couple of weeks ago they signed a free agent for Whelan then released him yesterday to make room or Malcolm Floyd. The Malcolm Floyd detonators Patrick go to the patriots but he is on the final year of his contract the league is investigating the joint chiefs of hand held two way radio. In the fourth quarter of last Sunday night's ten to seven victory over Dallas Cowboys. Coach Ben Mecca do seniors you know walking talking to really pleased that you climbing after the giants. We're having problems with their headsets early in the fourth quarter that is against the rules and it felt looking into it. Buffalo Sabres will start Robin letter in gold tonight when they take habitat 175 weeks off and keep accent Jabber. Donald Jones live from. One bill strategy on her show continues without too and it's usually on Fridays we are joined by the color analyst. On the appeals radio network to have mark Kelso it's ridiculous mark welcome aren't always good to be with the best we're worried about UN register about the weak force army and if you missed that that will explain it yeah I guess because that I had not heard those morning apartment fruit Wake Forest Demon Deacons football team. Apparently there allegations that he was deliberately funneling them a game information to we forced opponents including game plan information. He was immediately dismissed these former coach and he went for staff former player there. Shockey market that's what you guys and you were bombing I I might try to deliver information about like it takes it provides in -- as somebody else did you see Louisville's responsive and so open I'm curious about they were one of the teams that yet you know he and they came on confirmed that you know one of the drafting off of the coordinator. C info from my school actually confirmed so. So it is suspected. Had not had any information in Louisville and not a B wait force. I think we've been pretty and so in a car that's solid lead in the first of all it's wrong it's all about execution but. It is about execution but yet no no question that's wrong and I like it and surprises somebody would do that typically someone who was that before and and yet your own ideas but it you know what I've said all on the it's all clinics accused insignia eaten. You know give solely playbook whatever you want and you know the players are gonna economy is not surprising the patriots commander what they're gonna run but he still find a way to get done and and move the ball up in that field experience. Should note you're approaching into art sector job in Charlotte for much of the week. And when you pop in Europe Friday's. It's really your first exposure to what the bills have done that week which lands you I think the inability to look at what's happened neutral set of eyes and delivered you don't hear that. The noise around the team you don't hear the noise inside the team as they're kind of approach it dispassionate. The swelling AME church take emotion as a player and it's an emotional game which you wanna keep emotion out of it couldn't be more objective incidents objective and so yet yeah you had the opportunity units are Leo follower jump on the website and see some of the things that they've gone around team that particular week but yet you don't. Spent a lot of time studying the with a weak and what's until the upcoming opponent but I I typically don't what's the bills that what's a little bit last week. Or vice talking about why the defense didn't play as well as they needed to and and that's always little things and we talk all the time it's never as bad on film and it's never as good on film and when you play well and never as bad on film into play poorly because it's just. It says it's a few inches here and in leverage comptroller what's voter of that office eleven you're attacker. Or how BQ a lag which hike now whine about all the time right I mean you have to alive. The running back lines at eight and a half you don't have to line up closer than five or I think five and half quite frankly when it's. They got bell because he's an eight and a half but the but the you have to be able to take proper angles and if you build those big guys are ghost ball up and not give you an opportunity to make a tackle a running back. Mark you know Michael while worried about two in the box there and I'm like yeah that's army's list and all over the place you have to lay out the window and like. Mark is going to be our. That's why among is still on the rusty Jones lifting planned some linkage I keep myself healthy and and you know injury prevention and nobody has already injured. People should know when we do the games on Sunday if you do get into it you'd Europe the box next to the coaches boxing vantage point. And there are times when you are waving your flapping your arms are trying to know what what's Coulter breath and let me know that nobody can see your your you. Yeah and it doesn't matter to me because them Buchanan and visible at that point too quick but it's I mean there's times when there's times when I'm gesturing about a play that might happen again with all the balls that run the ball because there's certain clues that you have about those things that we talked about those things running back depth and angle of the office the line in his knee ban their house back is angled so I mean you're one step ahead you can diagnose those things that doesn't mean you play those things. When the down starts but as it down unfolds it if it happens the what you're thinking you once that bad if it doesn't then you have to make an adjustment applies to sometimes that happens. You know I obviously I gave I think the officials did an outstanding job but I do get frustrated occasionally with things that aren't called like Lima lineup and back juniors. Here's the we realized they oxy moronic on the show so no there is one of the it appeared as if there's that what is the oxy more another thing it's and I've asked many officials they city it can't be it's Canada. It's got to. I mean it's it's an anomaly in the law but in the rule book. How can an offensive linemen be on the line of scrimmage. But a slot receiver being off the line of scrimmage and those two guys be on the exact same plane on the field and in a minute that can't happen. And but it happens all the time in those guys have got that if the Lima going to be able to my apple that further back. Then you get a move those slot receiver back in in make them their approach that line of scrimmage Biehl a bit longer and and and sometimes it guys motioned across the formation. And their movement towards the line of scrimmage and they don't call that they get away with those little subtleties and in New England gets away with all the time winners specific routes result as it thinks of it. There's a myriad of responses I can answer that but. Quite frankly I get frustrated with a certain things C defensive backs that are. It did do an outstanding job in coverage in the coming out of the break and they take a peek at the quarterback in the moment you take at the the play is over the ball is on target. And you're gonna lose that challenges. You have to have the discipline to to make sure that your drive into the in the your hip and if he'd done all the UST can't win against these guys in the opponent has such great athletes that. That the margin of Ayers Mary Burger's smaller if if you're not precise with everything you know can make plays. Snow has the players you see these things form because I can see. By something about the happen on the field I just because a plea and then MM I like I can see it about to happen on my god knows about that yet and it seems like you go through the same thing and that's why aren't the flow in and everything. Does that mean you know certain situations in your and that's what that's what my preparation work is all about his would. What is this thing they do in the search situation what would they do on first and ten day. What do they do when they're between the fours where they do when they're backed up inside the five yard line when they do in third and medium what do they do with our long or conversely. What defense they play in so I cannot understand. What tackled the bills offensively need to be because I know what covers are playing and I know what things beat those coverages so. And hopefully they're there on that same type of page and and sometimes again you have to adjust because you become bad to get the snap fountain and you need to snap the football all the southern not a quarters coverage. There in they're in man coverage situation you've got to adjust to that in and out and make those adjustments to have a successful that but it can be quite frustrating. But but you know again it's not it's not. People talk about the game plan last we can be as game plan. He in I'm sure there's certain pieces of the game plan it that racks or Robert Dennis Thurman and and therein lies one issues you know which guy is really in charge of making sure that. They're executing a plan that they're putting in place and do they are the agreement if there is agreement great but. If there's ever disagreements sometimes that's cause for concern but but you say. They had a good. Had a good plan he didn't execute planned properly sometimes it's a one guy on on one play ME Marcel has some good plays and then there was couple plays were. He got on the wrong shoulder took the wrong gap in late in Belo solti that he was able to take the gap where. We're Marcel was at one time Marcel got blocked he stepped back with his left foot and stepped on I think he stepped and other offensive player but there's a couple beat back there. And then he and his knee buckled and he went down and I created a big homes that sometimes. You know Zach brown is played so well this year probable level without question and you know eat these charges build a place that's when you take the opposite shorter you force the running back outside it's great if your other linebacker Preston is is anticipating that. And he's going to the outside an effective run defense but if he's not in he's coming inside thinking you're gonna push him back in. And it's going to be V could be a big hole on the outside as well so it's all those little precise things. In if you'll have all those things work in I mean they say it's a game of inches it's a game of inches in football as well a I could put on a feel for any game in NFL last week and I'll show you ties were linebackers attack that the wrong shorter but they attacked the middle the offense alignment. And it turns in the via bad down for the defense because they they they get locked in and there's a scene the cars and running backs can take advantage. Mark Kelso color analyst on the bills radio network if we have a commoner question from marquis can bring this up you know three. All 550 or toll free at 1888550. To 550 before we talk about Sunday's game Marca I want you to give our listeners. A sense of one of the things you look for you spotted this for a couple of years now and it's the depth of Buffalo's inside linebackers you think that they. Line up to close tell us why they might do that and why it might. Matter well it's not just is not buffalo linebackers amid lawmakers over the league to do that there's some that I think play a little deeper and sometimes. Fans get upset with a list mechanic at a place of the London Fletcher basis about one if that's my guess he's. Five and a half six charge the with a running back seven to eight yards deep so it doesn't matter. In in the Jacksonville linebackers for pause laws in the Intel when Smith played in about five to five and half yards I really like. I mean some coaches will teach in the put their heels of five yards. By cal like their toes at five yards maybe their heels of five and half again depending on the depth of the running back and if they're in a if there's a shotgun situation at running back there's some there's some nuances to Wear their running back lines up his even with the quarterback he's just a little beepers in little bit of front. Accuses included what the play might be and you add that dated says. What the offense alignments doing their house back is angle in the and you say OK so I got two or three piece of data their tummy past. Could be a play actually could be Iran can be a drop in and you react to those things but. What happens when what happens is again because it's it's a game of inches so. In the distance between your nose and your outside shoulder is what six and a half rate inches right. So if that linebacker if the linebacker lines of three and a half yards linebackers responsibilities to merely the first steps of the running backs that's why we say mr. erections so it is they start. Linebacker starts that way. Now there's a backside tackled it's in that rub double situations of Europe engaged with the offensive guard blocking the defense of tackle. Both guys are blocking them but tackle pushes him to the opposite shoulder of the guards that he can get leverage control and any slides down field. If your five yards the par five and a half yards and you start to Mir the running back. And then you come back the other way because he'd turn the other way fullbacks come in that way him whenever it is a bad player cut or cutback lane. And you turn to run. You know that that up that's attack was going to be there waiting for. So you've got to rip with your backside shoulder and you gotta get over the top and if you attack his outside sure you have a chance to win the down. If you attack him head on he will hold you guarantee even for a split second that's enough for the running back to get through that opening. And if you're on the backside shoulder you have zero chance the closer you are till line of scrimmage. The more difficult it is for you to get to that outside shoulder Villa nueva last week I mean he he goes downfield by the time he gets you. And ending gauges unit block as a linebacker he's born half yards downfield to appear in at three and a half yards just for our alignment sake. You can get caught up and all that washing you can't scrape over the top like you need to be able to do. The other effective way to. For lay beyond bell you talked about he was he so effective inside and sometimes he got the edge as well bills are playing man and he starts inciting his CA as. The way to defend dad is the wrong shoulder everything like exacted a couple times in a much repeated intentionally. There from a schematic perspective or if we just decided it on the wrong shorter in this case and if he does that in a press and on the same page pregnant. But they're not on the same page it's a problem. And you force him to run east and west and really good running back she need to be do that he seemed to fill lop. All the only this space inside if forced them to run east and west when you do that. You better have a defender on the edge you better not be playing man continued cornerback is gonna come up make an attack. Now all of the debt of them the linebackers stance and everything. All of that stuff matters but last week didn't really just come down to those guys not making tackles. You know I am I think it's all the little things it's a culmination of all those little things in those little things add up the big things and and that added up to a career day I think they've got bells as the fourth. All time game for all purpose yards for a running back into those gains occurred in 1960s. One of them occurred you know a few years back with with Adrian Peterson believes that over 300 yards but. I mean. Me yeah they missed some tackles there's no question about that but but they had opportunities and and there were some times when he defended really well but. When they didn't and then again it's just it's it's in inches here three inches here five inches here. You know liven up happy yard too close and I. And I can look at all times you gonna get cut off on the backside. And then if you run play action pass as we talk about the intermediate spaces so safeties are lining up at 151718. Yards in their initial alignment. If lawmakers tight and they're gonna buy it up on first down because they think it's a run that was going to be huge opportunities in the intermediate passing game off the play action pass. There's no way that those linebackers can get back. Two to defend where they need to in the hook dropper just outside Asher or deepen that medal haul mean and if you look at. Like. In house a domestic we have some really good linebackers I still think Jamie Collins who's playing obviously for the Cleveland Browns now with all the situation unfolded in New England. He's he is one of the best he's one atop through four linebackers in late without question. Probably the best defense of player I would that would Michael Natalie you're saying he's the best defensive player and a browser at. If you don't usually see him line up. It deeper than five yards now they are hurt shallower than five dollars she's so he's five or even a little more the only time he's gonna get closer to line of scrimmage. Is if it's a real short yardage play in he is absolutely convinced that his edge guys are gonna push that ball inside. And then he wants to attack those Lyman a little bit more quickly but he knows he's protected. On the outside but what the responsibility of those defense events or our outside linebackers are. Mark Kelso is whether as we're talking about the bills and the browns in the matchup this Sunday marked. Tell me why the browns are oh and thirteen. They don't have I don't think they have a great running back Koch demo like crow well he's an average of four point six. Do Jackson is about the same as well but there's a couple big plays in there. Mean I think they're they're solid guys. Let me know and it's hard to say you don't have a guy like. Alicia McCoy early Gambill but they don't have a marquee running back and they try to address that situation right with. With that they pick somebody up from Dallas off the waiver wire so yeah and this will isolate I don't think. That situation has informed exactly the way they like although I like crow well I think he's got some some good contact ballots he's got some acceleration. I think the owners Jan and broke one for 85 but the generic easily convert waste right. Come but this is not a consistent right it's not consistent can find the hole that's that thing and I think they're offensive line is that they've got a pretty big component there and but they've had they've had no consistency or quality from the quarterback play and and and they can't amend heavenly band real dynamic and receiver position there's there's times when I'm watching film. When those receivers there their gone Max protection which affords you little bit more time to pocket. Then it got two receivers running routes in the run and twenty yard hooks the government from the outside it's a numbers to the inside and their. It's 3 seconds am the ball's been snapped. And Robert Griffin's hold the ball for three seconds in the receivers haven't turned back yet they're still seventeen yards waiting trying to get into their out. They come back to football mean that becomes a big problem what is that just bit designer as execution. Nothing has what is that's bad in my mind it's bad design because I mean you've got to give him early options in the end. His accuracy has not been good drive bunkers I haven't died and go back to see who's playing quarterback for the last couple weeks but. His accuracy has not been viewed it means that part of his game component his game is a quarterback read. Which he's he's dynamic athletically you obviously a little bit hindered by some of the injuries he sustained over the years but he. He doesn't have a lot of rhythm pass in the football and and he doesn't have. His mechanics or not or not. Prototypical of a drop back quarterback so. Is that he's been off target a little bit you know I mean there's just there's a myriad of things but I don't think they have any rhythm offensively. I don't think they nearly haven't they don't have to sustain a running game so it's not something you have to be overly concerned about. I think guys they they've got some young guys played through see your position I think you can escape a little bit Terrelle Pryor is a fabulous athlete. Think he has a little bit more difficult because he's a bigger body escape and at the last embassy got to get some hands on in and and then you can you can thwart that situation and they've had some real trouble listened twist president given upwelling almost. Fifty sacks on the season part of that's a little bit a scramble in and quarterbacks feel of it. In in a hurry state trying to get rid of the football not have anybody open throughout so it's I mean it's a myriad of problems. And but they've got seventeen rock rookies on his roster. So they've got some mutual exuberance they've got some guys it really wanna play Hampshire guys became from programs that were winning programs that. Haven't been in this situation too many times in life so so they'll be hungry there's no question about that as much is as much as you wanna be a team that's the undefeated. Late in the year you don't want to lose to a team that it hasn't won a game but to say that this is a bad team would be. Would be a big mistake for the Buffalo Bills I mean this is a team that hasn't played well as at consistency at the quarterback position. But but they had some really good defense of players and if you're not careful you keep yourself and in a difficult situation you find yourself behind now they can sit back and defend the could make you throw everything short and then you could find yourself you know looking. Looking in the fourth quarter deep in the fourth quarter and at a at a deficit and and how much gonna come backer of gonna come back ms. games they certainly don't wanna get themselves in that situation everything. The bills Europe right now with their approach but everything's gone out a couple of losses and wrote that. Rumors and reports about big changes in the offing where you think the angles in and and so that's something happened last week and an even though. I don't know the situation apple orchards used him why it was a feel the starting game so. I mean who knows what what. Things are going on behind the scenes there duty of a conflict but that somebody years there's no conflict at all I don't know open but he addressed at the one week but. So there's a frustration there's no question about that there's some frustration over the fact that the bills that they run the table their playoff hopes are still alive you like like half a percent yourself man. I don't know that I'm not because it is that not a complex 1% OK so. The one's the results twice what I went on investment right so that the coming back but it's just it's so frustrating because now you're. You're in that situation again and and whatever the reason. And that that underlies the performance for the lack of performance on whatever side of the football. That which in this situation right now like it's a little bit frustrating so now you're saying OK now you're you're at a point now you've got to win these games. But you know you'd you'd lost. Games is two teams that are common in next couple weeks. So I got one of them on the get an opportunity there. Now you're still thinking about your quarterback situation in Tyrod Taylor's little question because people were asking but is long term future I think he's progressed nicely. Certainly he has times when he can't see I think his sight lines. Aren't good and does he those guys done yet another buy stock in about a 92. And that knotted disrespectful way but. When Tyrod is decisive. He he's he's really geared. When he somehow hesitates because he's a little bit less decisive like he was last week when Charles clay was open for. Three or four steps and crow. Russ Cochran was they would commit play cover two and and deflect a ball away. He gets frustrating is you see people's trigger now that's it dances fifteen yard gain but he didn't poachers so when he does that. Creates a problem and in any was hesitant last week even run in the football because I think he was. Think people are in his head saying you can't get it keep looking that feeling keep throw and so they started running and then needed to have the audit Canada dynamic improvisational. Ability that he typically has because I think he was. Who's concerned about staying around the idolize them to throw a football now feel so I mean it's it's. I don't know where their heads threat quite frankly am I'm not here among in the locker room on a daily basis that'll have to conversations with players but I I would suspected. It's it's kind of a mixed baggage that there's some guys and they do have some veteran leadership of if Kyle complaining stealthy I mean he'll bring it because sees he's again it's been their lot in that in these disappoint situation before continues to bring it week in and week out. But they just have to rally around each other. And say that we're gonna we're going out there to perform we've got to play quality football and and and I do think there's a lot of incentive this week users they do not want to lose to this when his team and that will give them some added incentive. Market got a former team meteors coming up next thing common he's the leader of the charts of sin and Malia. On the you know above the tunnel entrance for the team on the field any messages version. I like him all the time yeah I'd like to say frequently and it was funny when he was a young player it's. It was you know Scott ran a second he replaying inside linebacker until we moved changed it. To the outside linebacker position he's playing inside. And he. And and they'd run a counter OT. And Scott would read immediately. In it behead in the correct way Shane would be at the opposite way but they say would make the tackle like two yards behind Atlanta scrimmage because he had such abilities such speed. To get to where he needed to be in any lined up deep enough. To make sure I can avoid those that's offensive linemen they overcome and outfield but he was coming uses a huge component. He's he's very close friend and and we continue to again remaining in close contact him. And Christopher's on a media on their way to hope wire. And that played really well for coach Craig and now I think works in New York City and Christopher's as a receiver. There was a sophomore receiver when you're in there yet he went. He found out there he's got the council endowed chair it was it does he and his pals or here is exactly right and and and honest and yet so I think they had a disappointing season this year but. Think he he he was they would they get some some considerable playing time so hopefully here. As as he matures in his career he's got a couple of the kids still. Still high school in end and chaining Carolina delightful people of that in the Pittsburgh area in you know the really good friends with cliff Benson as well that's a neighbor that meant that I was really involved heavily in in him and Terry wrote these fans of classic course people. He was in there with our perception that the chains it. Yeah equality are coming better in the chain and that really quality gad it was great to have as a teammate no question are you feel good about this game for the bill Sunday I guess right I'm looking to win I think there earlier today he can't ask me it's like they asked me this morning tip for an hour wind on Friday you can ask that what's gonna change right now and I don't remember how will you know it changes all the tankers is on Friday easily think they gonna lose about Sunday night's myself I got to win. So go back and watch more film to convince his idol and I grizzlies is being around here a little bit it's been around it's the feel it's what's going it's. It's effective we didn't practice to practice situation was not in the elements. Which was that's a big that's a big noun offers marked go so well but but in the end I understand it today because when about the stadium right exactly because stadium the Emmy because of the snow all the couldn't get the feel clean so it was a footing issue which I understand that but. But they don't typically practice outside so I don't know what they've had any. Any conditioning to these elements sin and that but not that Cleveland's not gonna be more prepared Pittsburgh's case. You know they they were probably they they are equally you're better prepared for the cold weather because they deal with the same thing but I suspect Cleveland nine guys there are. In that in the same season goes back I don't know I'm and I just I eat in your gut you have to say that this bills team has a lot of quality talent. And they have guys that if they if they. Rally around themselves assailing you were going out there and perform we're going to be sharp. And execute and images we're going to be this team and we're gonna get up early on this team and am not allowed out that I I think they have the capabilities to do that. And I would suspect that's what's gonna happen but. And you couple days the cunning and I get a feel about it perhaps on the net and on Sunday a lot of a lot of distractions route one bills drive right now that's that's concerned. Yeah thanks mark. Mark Kelso color analyst said the bill radio network you you'll hear his work on Sunday will be in the broadcast Booth at 1 o'clock the bills in the Cleveland Browns 1 o'clock and reflected the buffalo WGR Sports Radio 550. Talk about change economy's coming up next they preferred native Penn State product in the guy who that's what the anchors of that buffalo bills' defense during the Super Bowl run. Shane time and leader of the charts Sunday at Muirfield and will be joining us next on the show. John Murphy show with Donald Jones like from one bills drive on Buffalo Bills radio. Thank. No say in the Cleveland Browns coming up on a Sunday. A disturbing new Eric campus gonna be out in force and if you buy a new year camp.

This governor Arnold on it if you buy a cap or near. As a matter. Our economy and for every knicks can happily noted that it wherever you need to cap audit the sabres and bills games this rejected. What I edited it and actually got about one of those that that is yes it's a nicked forever and it kept purchase and knew her field. Sunday they'll donated to go after the boys and girls and then. Why is it too difficult. Jeff Murphy Donald Jones we are live it one bills drive with a Bill Gates at the play the Cleveland Browns before they take the field. They will be let out onto the field from the tunnel and by the gentleman who joins us on the subway fresh steak outline right now he was the NFL. Defense of rookie of the year in 19871. Round pick of the bills that Penn State three times in the Pro Bowl whoever the bills. Fiftieth anniversary all time team from New York native Shea problem lives on the line with a changeup Murphy Donald Jones could hear from you don't change. And you don't. We're doing great record afterwards if it's in the cap it's not a baseball cap I will now I was trying to do you know Tommy do some clearance from that as well yes but around saying you that you're rookie of the year in 1987. And you know that's the Euro was born so. Cited data right now but I had its area of that people aren't. But it was were there were. He had it work that you guys are playing pretty good football senior U jumped on board team that he had in the late eighties you kind of wrote the way breaking game in here you edit your. You went from a team that was a pretty questionable team to really good team during your career. Yeah today I mean I just had a great draft I'm I'm a big proponent of you win which player with good players are now that a lot of a lot of people say you're the coach your players are I'm more a player sense of the so are we had really. Possible players on the street you look back I defensively. And offensively it just was in IP and that it'll never be done for four straight Super Bowl that will never be done again. Now you city you're more of a guy who you feel like you win with the players right now obviously correct you have to draft the players you have to Newton did the right players through free agency in these days. You also have to develop those guys. Refer me. It's always about the players making plays on the field you know like the coaches puts you in a certain situation. You still gotta make the play on the field it's that you see that a lot about the league and especially this year with the bills. We're guys just haven't made the plays on the field regardless if they're good or bad situation. No art art group or I think you know you find obviously. Through the draft you on the best. You're the fastest guy that the split is it the other day you have to have. The kid or person that knows how to put football in who can make plays and I think we had. A big bet based on me when they drafted me and I wasn't the fastest. Or that that the biggest but I was always around the ball so I I think that's what. You know certain time and you know I think Marco the temperament Opel pepper I don't know what they're getting away from that these days but. There have been and it seemed like every. Draft class there's more and more. Bought in and and met first round and a lot of majors measurable you know they I'm and other so fastest so strong so. But you know you gotta watch film are today. Are they good football player and I think I think it eventually got to get to that point. Saying you're playing right into two. So what we've been dealing with this week in a lot of fans saying that. They rather to do is just move the rest of the season tanked the rest of the season so that they can move up to three spots in the draft to get a better traffic which are saying. You know you see a lot of more first round busts and attack because it's all miserables and not on. Really how good of a football player this guy is. Right I agree with and you know I've never lose you go out losing for a better graduate you can get you can get. Great players that the sector round ligament third round here in the search for our. And what Tom Brady's six round draft particularly compliant it's like got the perfect example. Here's my proposal weren't the greatest but look easy deal I'm probably a good arm has result on that. What was your sixth round yeah it looked good and he made plays so. You know you just never know I guess that that play football is the top business and it has. Under whatever anybody says you know we want a lot again but it is hard to win and it's good that competition is so good. And the players are so great coaching is so good but it's typical the more and then once you figure out how to do it better to do and those are not going to be around for a long. Saying come on I'm eleven as he's going to be the leader the charge Sunday when the bills take the field to to play the Cleveland brown teaching somebody was asking me this week about. The bills brown series over the years you know kind of spotty but. The one memorable game and you were right in the middle of it the the wildcard playoff game it did at the old Cleveland Stadium Ronnie Harmon dropped it at the end. It was a significant game in franchise history no based on what went down offensively and and kind of the back and forth nature that came some people think. That game sort of propelled you guys to those four consecutive Super Bowl forty recall about that. Nor do I do remember that there are game I think that the police story I remember a perfect game out stretching. It was warm up as you know does it stand right pros are on their screaming. They say you know understand. Italian. Gonna get in at this event that it goes that you would. We regret to use instead of it was straight jump in at the shrug my shoulders. He's figured wrong people so. Well. We were left and so that broke with yet that's been yeah that the game started it was a great and obviously you know it's it's unfortunate that. You know that dropped pass foot. But I agree that propelled I mean we knew we could play over those guys. You know we. After that after that loss. It really does proposal the most in 56 years so. That that loss in the playoffs they came at the end of the year where things where it wasn't a smooth ride for this team right there we're. You know the famous bickering bills of stuff going on and yet you come close here. Yeah that was more the opposite. That we were once a road. You know there's only one ball and sometimes I don't like Sharon though. No idea but defensively we obviously we currently are are. Our our problems with each other to put it'll look different defense. We just try to get up off the field that we can. So you know and offensively they everybody wants stretches but also that we had some of the greatest players and obviously all famers that. The one of the ball yes but that's that that certain. The show and how much you follow the bills are the NFL in general the season are you pretty busy with with four young acute work for kids here are not young. The yeah. Not a time but he you know I always check your and it was not good now that I have the reds on icy Everett scored so that's like it's. The so I killed built scores but yeah I mean I've. I'm frequently with the owner he's forensic I've known him for. You know fifteen years so even the full weight before you bought the bills so. So yeah I've bombed absolutely. You know I've I've not a deal apparently have been in the Pittsburgh area but and I. Although I do like their coach a lot. Of I've met him a few times but you have until bill and that's true the more propensity. It over Penn State well because you are Penn State fans we talked about this a little bit earlier Penn State is not. Playing in the playoffs elicit thoughts on that. Yeah I mean it's a tough call I know a lot of value because Powell went down. He got you could make that you could make an argument. To put a man and you can also make him arguments as to keep them I think the way Franklin is an analyst it was great for me it was great it was great would it mean if we the government airport does. It's just that so many agencies in there is that sort basic notice victory in. It'll the then we definitely I think you get more of a more of a look. Who develop better teams but yeah we thought it was a from where we were. It's beginning the year you kick me read. And if you told me that they would went out. I'd figure crazy so what a great year current wrestlers and coaches and their and the players. Jim we haven't really talked in a couple years less on talking you were following your son's. Quarterback career at all bark and now you've got a son who's it going to marry a wide receiver in women Mary's Eric. Yes yes he has yet redshirt freshman this year he. You it is his first series he got hurt. So he was he rhetoric that you're yeah I play a little bit this year going to be he'll be enemy next big. Big tall it's we're looking towards us on the underwear has spurred the next few years what template. Saying how hard is it as a parent. So watch his son play game obviously you played a game at the highest level and you know how violent the game was. You hear so many parents today say listen my son's not playing football because of the comparisons and everything all the guys to see you heard every single weekend how hard is it as a father for you to watch his son's out of play. Well there as well it was really compromise. To me is that what might my oldest play in the quarterback. He. Get hit high school we just had a really bad article payment and literally it would it would get the snap and running it has felt that was very critical supplies could see you got knockout punch against. My second one. Yeah its it's too little different little more collisions but. You know and likely was bigger faster so he can really get it like so hopefully next year I can see him get hit like that but I hope that lets you but. But with the deployment heal up more but yeah is that is that typical situation and I can understand what people don't wanna do it there's some violent collision. These kids are just getting too big and too fast. And the collisions are just incredible. If ever done this before this leader of a charge things chain what do you expect now and. No but I'd go I was. I try to do less here with them it was too late but I know I am I don't know what to expect so I'm looking forward to it though. You bring in the kids up Caroline advocates come up and yeah yeah we get oh group from my older is equipped. Amateur partner you that so group government. We had Brian Scott was the leader of its ours last week and he says when he was standing up on the platform. He he got that small. Feeling that he wanted to play and he went to those not begin at least the one play he did you do definitely. Oh. We under we Weinberg and in the case. It's all downhill from there. The question teaching thanks for this we look forward catching up on Sunday thanks very much arena on the show us today are Gary Herbert Bart thanks. Tank common bills linebacker on the fiftieth anniversary all time team three time Pro Bowl defense two rookie year. He's the real deal down patsy died yet the people out back and yet he was good. He really in my view element old school there that's right my plane on the floor we have hardwood floor. To break come back more than John Murphy show presented by no go from one bills drive and Buffalo Bills radio. We're back with more of that John Murphy she. Three stints present diamond in the rough this week it's defensive tackle Kyle Williams the fifth round pick of the bills in 2006. Kyle Williams has been a mainstay in the defense of lying down in the midst of this eleven NFL season. Do you support time pro bowler who has racked up 39 Saxon 340 tackles during his career in buffalo. So far this year twelve games played Kyle Williams says 55 tackles three and a half sacks. He ranks second on the bills with the eight tackles for losses. I'll what you of this week's diamond in the rough presented by reach did the official jeweler of the Buffalo Bills. They're trying to tell. It will be game time decision as he did get in limited work in practice today with his back injury. According plan as on that doubtful stances. He did not practice all week John Murphy Dow Jones. Here in studio with sanctioning count for joining us on the subway fresh take I subway eat fresh. The Twitter poll we won a ring gauger on the telephones as well on this what do you wanna see from the bills. On Sunday. Give us a call 8030550. Or toll free 1888550. To 550 or on Twitter what are you looking forward to see from the bills on Sunday right now on the toward her ball. Most 12100 votes in so far 48% of you say you wanna see who built his beat Cleveland. 24% say strong play by Tyrod Taylor 15% say effort and intensity 13% say. Consistent defense this morning bills GM Doug Whaley. Was aghast and the WG our morning show hosted by Jeremy White. And he was asked about Tyrod Taylor and whether he had made any sort of determination on that Taylor's future here's what Doug Weight Leon's. It's a quarterback currently so everybody's going to be focused on the quarterback. And for me I think the things that he is definitely improved on and I are doing a good job on the timing routes and the total command of the offense. Now consistency and Allen all areas of play not only with Tyrod but our whole team is is really what's hold us back and I think he's shown some times where he could. He has been able to use the field middle field he has brought us back in the that was the Jacksonville game. So consistency part though is is something that our whole team has to get better does this pass. An offense in in your opinion piece it's a quarterback terminally Richard narrowly quarterback driven team. Carrier team is driven by the run game and I think you also want rebuilt to do to be led by your defense so if it's quarterback driven league does this passing game and do enough. To drive a team in a quarterback driven league. I think that we that we have to be multiple and I think what at what happens is in it when I say quarterback too vividly our philosophy is. You really have to throw to score points but your run to win games so while we have to be multiple enough to be able to do both they and in any situation. That dictates. Four up we got a running the ball we're down got to throw the ball so we have to be multiple but the most thing most important thing is to be consistent. Well. For building a team BCE Erie gonna throw to score points this is a team that does not throw the ball all that often and I don't wanna you know obviously make did the connection that. If you're not throwing around trying to score but if you do need to throw to score. Do you need to throw more. Ed that's it that's that's a quandary we have because if you look at it we're tense than in the league in scoring over 25 points so. Palin has done a great job of balancing that the run in the past putting. Are off instant situations to be successful and it shows in our stats and tenth in the league with over 25 points like I said before. I'm were were pretty happy with that. Doug Whaley bills general managers this morning on the WTO morning show they are out of whack offensively the other score points but down. I think the issues that how often you throw but how effective you are when you throw and you are precede the bills that. There aren't that they are not effective in April the ball and that's why I mean obviously their personal run. But you can't beaded glass or almost dead last in the passing game and that's because they are out of whack they've had so many receivers in and out of the lineup. Mean hockey to be in sync with the quarterback in our receivers. I think that obviously running the ball is their identity but they need to be a little bit more balance and they are right now if they want to improve as a full team.
