Well last hour I was it eight theory in this hour I'm not Jeremy White but I am Brayton Wilson joined here by their Kremer he's decide to stick around for a little while. And we're gonna talk some more bills there it's gonna continue on with his list of coaching possible coaching candidates at the bills do not. Decide to hire Anthony Lane. Like there's a lot of things going on this morning with with coaching moves and coaching decisions and you know some unfortunate. More than others but this is Buffalo Bills game in working your ready for 1 o'clock kick up between the Buffalo Bills at the New York Jets with John Murphy mark Kelso calling the play by play. Live from the north but brought my northwest broadcast Booth make the switch to northwest and get back to living cities broadcast has probably presented by independent health. Helping you get and stay healthy learn more at that redshirt treatment dot com cell. With the bills though let's let's catch up I and I know that Yankee of caught us up a little bit on what's going on around the league but. Let's recap a little bit Adam chapter he started out today. By tweeting if I can pulled up here without my computer deciding to. Slow up on me here which it is already but. Guess we'll start with a tweet that is not going away from me Gary Kubiak is likely going to be coaching his final game with the Broncos. Health concerns being the factor there for Gary Kubiak unfortunate situation there are no he's missed at least one game this year missed the Thursday night game against the chargers by. He and unfortunately is not good to be able to. He's we continue on after. This season in which is really unfortunate the next big tweet from chapter says. Former jags head coach Gus Bradley is planning to follow Anthony Linda any head coaching job he lands per source creating a win. Bradley ticket now. That's huge. Because desperately before it was higher by Jacksonville was a pretty good defense of coordinator in the you know which which gave him the opportunity land the jaguar job and I think that if he comes here is the defense of coordinator. Maybe he'd be able to work a little some magic here with the assets that he has to mean the defense has those tools available. For us brightly here I mean. You gotta get a quarter he delegates and defensive backs but still. The fact is you've got to the front seven you just got every sign of a couple of the guys that need to be like I mean if you want every sign Zach brown got to resign him maybe Lorenzo Alexander. Mean but. You might not need to sign Zak brown the stroke because the bills' Reggie right when Deborah you right now coming back Preston brown is there. Do you have options at linebacker and he can go ahead and get something there. I don't think that you need to re signed Zack from what you cut there and there's and there's also gonna be options in the draft this year. And that the bills don't have any picks is Cleveland Browns but they still nothing about this. Gusts Brett possibly being the defense according here for the Buffalo Bills the bills front seven might actually be more inclined to fit a 43 scheme. Yeah which would benefit this team yet immensely. Aria and going from 43234. Was it's a tough quite honestly it was a tough transition but. With the way that this team is built it was probably a mistake trying to get that switched over and yet and that's probably where it. And that's probably the first problem and Rex Ryan's defense failing is because of the fact that it takes time to adjust from a strong. For three roster. Q adjusting to a 34 defense that neat stuff takes to. Last year he did he he did the transition mid season from 43234. And then backed up for three. It was just it was crazy last year with the transition that the data. Trying to do that midseason just just didn't work in an issue they tried to 34. And they still couldn't get it. You know I can't necessarily blame Rex Ryan for that it's his defense you know that's you know what kind of defense you getting when you hire the guy. Which is why I'm start in a real late it's not that I'm starting to really believe I believe that the men had to happen but. This did not seem like a football moves this seemed like a popularity move me. About power move kind of thing like. S military to goalie did have a big say in this nineteen feel like respirator and did have a say in hiring Rex Ryan in the first place because it's a big name ticket. People get excited for boisterous coach. But. Logistically football wise didn't make any sense right. I did not think that restaurant was the right after the job two years ago I wasn't here at this stage. Feel like neither was side by funny how things turn while. And here we are sitting here happy new year after and yes happy new year Italian when he seventeen LL. A year works near 2017. Be filled with happiness and joy in. You know hope everybody has a good new year hope everybody had fun they were safe yesterday. You know let you know we're here on Triton Nell now I'm sure that he didn't I'm sure that in and robbed in but. 8030551. Tripoli by fifty to 550 is the number so were caught up there. All one more tweet that I didn't mention from Ian Rapoport is saying that it's if these links job to lose for the bills head coaching job. And they're also considering talking to frank Reich former bills quarterback Terrell Austin who interviewed two years ago and Carol good when the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals okay. Let's continue on with your coaching lesson he's still got a few names out there that we should talk about well let's catch up because I was stating the stop by the seven something in the by the way I will say south of pot GO ease. Hopefully going to join us sometime around 9 o'clock. He's not sure yet if he'll be able to but we are we plan to talk to sell at some point before Howard Simon takes over at 10 o'clock for countdown to kick off. Also the weather for today it's going to be 44 degrees in east whether for an East Rutherford analyze that Weatherford. East Rutherford, New Jersey in the meadowlands so high of 44 degrees. Dare what was it it wasn't supposed to rain it's mostly cloudy right at night and cries for sister sunny out and out Knight also probably clear and around. Nice good should clear around 10 o'clock clouds gone and cabinet his minor league football I had the weather here and my computer. And again just decides to. Just. Just decide to slow up close on this amber from the first hour hi athletes well at time of kick off yup by the time pick up partly cloudy skies. So that's your weather's sell it New York so the weather update is brought you by Geico fifteen minutes it's a B 50% or more on car insurance call 109% and auto. Or is it Geico. Dot com today also. Those fans don't tailgate is complete without the buffalo chicken hot pepper crunch role from the original cry actual factory voted the best new product. On national we passed the aboriginal crush rule official finger food. Of WGR. Eat a real fight if you went Tripoli by fifty to fight it the can also interact with us on Twitter at WGR 550. Me bring Wilson at BG Wilson WGR and their primers at Derek Kramer WGR you can also text that's on the tax line by 5550. We will be looking at those responding to those so let's continue on Derek with a guy your ratchets up I'm up there I do I thought you thought I feel I feel much better now. So let's continue Juan. I don't I think a lasting that you mentioned was Jim Bob cooter yes her head coaching job and I. Really like that option I really like that option he's probably my favorite coaching option point is he going to be willing to take that next step this year I know next year his name will be even more of a candidate but. I from this and her all these spots that are opening up though that's the thing right I've but I mean I mean I've heard a couple of things where. Well he might not yet decided. Take a head coaching job maybe just were warm warrior with Matt Stafford and you never know some team might make it such an enticing offer that he decides to leave but he saw that liberal with Andy Kennedy. Yep what you saw and what you mentioned though with Jim Bob cooter you saw that with Adam case yes he turned on the job for clear when he turned on the job for a lot of vacancies and stuck around. You know. Move around with Jim or without with John Fox yet Denver. To Chicago for one year and then the next you know he decides the Miami job was what was suitable for him right. And he built himself stronger case at that point so. I think that. You could see that from the use from a lot of these office corners deepens corners that. Need to be just feel the need to build themselves up a little Morse at the ideal. Position comes up but. There isn't ideal position that's come up with Denver. So I don't know if there's going to be a lot of coaches going and saying but old may be I'll wait. You could see these guys during their hats in the ring for a lot of good opportunities to buffalo for as much of a a clown show as it was this year. They still have a very good situation talent wise. At least offensively defense that they get back to the right system I think they can improve. There is a lot of hope within the bills organization when it comes to a head coach seeing this teaming going OK I can work with this. Denver is a great place that you can go to Jacksonville's not a terrible. Place to be interviewing for either LA has some problems with weapons offensively and our offensive line but other than that they're pretty decent team. So it's not like there's really aid but I mean there is a San Francisco forty Nash position probably opening up as we heard from dank cave during the update. So there's a lot of decent to good positions in the NFL that need a head coach. You could be seeing a lot of these names I mentioned before hand in the U 7 o'clock hour where as the place up. Kyle Shanahan Terrell Austin Jim Bob cooter and Tom Coughlin goes before they've gone over. I think Coughlin a little. School. Aged at this point. I don't donate that it's just the name that's enticing and it was the scene with Rex Ryan that the name was in the power of a name is how Hillary's. Very haters what with Tom copilot everybody says. Won two super balls and he beat the patriots have both of up. The this is everything that he still teaches still going to be effective in today's NFL three. When he won the Super Bowl something was working but as you mentioned that he was for the last five years in New York he didn't make the playoffs an idea. When he makes the plastic doses sequel but that's a little boomer boss for me yeah. Yes I would vote to win a Super Bowl but they had to call the doesn't guarantee you suitable got not only happening with the way that he was down the stretch for New York. It doesn't even guarantee a playoff spot for us as and that's the one thing that I think anybody wants at this point. Is who cares if they lose in the first from the class this is my mentality here on them I'm thinking. For myself and I don't care if we lose a first round of the playoffs just wanting to get to the playoffs it's been seventeen years you what are -- playoff games remember my life to. Two and a lot of people don't remember one. Put you for meat it's like I'm just lucky enough to remember two playoff games that the bill had since. The drought which I was too that your number not the of course the home run throwback than the young music city miracle dog that's called music city back and forth past. That does not it's not a miracles for past. If you really don't want to admit that now I don't and then the year before. When they're in the playoffs in gap against Miami does after the game. Jimmie Johnson who with their head coach at the time. Through a box of Flutie flakes on the ground in stop them. Yeah yeah up that's that's one that I don't think a lot of people remember Ed unless you know of course your older that I am I'm 25. So I remember both of those games is equally to playoff games are meant I remember in this might age me a couple of years passed you here because that's the truth yeah I remember the Jacksonville playoff game. Jim Kelly got let's not knock down them and essentially retirement. That was nine B six yes. I admire I I I but I bass era that game that tell you just got us not knocked out of Gallo seen kids that was by Hong Kong February. Yeah but. For me getting back on track here Coughlin is a guy that. He's been around for a long time he's a big name coaches of big name ticket and go ahead call me if you want disagree on this but I don't think Tom cough was the right guy for the job I don't think so either I mean I I'm ready to engage in the minority. I'd I'd almost be willing to give it a chance I'd be I'd be open to it but. I'm not fully confident that it's going to work now and that's and that's kind of how I felt with racks where it's like okay. He's hired here the uneasy when he can do with our defense and I might feel confident in this after the first year I was like okay. Didn't go great but maybe this year and then like after the first two games it was almost like. Oh boy this is not going to be good they want the four games and and they lost to Miami in a game that they probably should've won the nail loss of course doing Lyndon. Seattle and at that point it was just like it's this team doesn't got the date this team does not habit yep I. Again there's a lot that needs he said about a big ticket higher Olympic team coach Bowden problem is he's available for any reason. If he's a retread head coach. And maybe that's saying something about my philosophy personally as to what I'll want the head coach I wanna die let. Isn't a retread that hasn't failed in the league before right at M but there's also risk in bringing an accordion and I'm willing to admit. But I think that sometimes you can't look back in the past and it's one of the biggest dangers. Of fans here with this drought is reaching back in the past which brings me to. Frank Reich hat yeah oh. Yeah frank Reich is probably the biggest in the stalled a nomination all could bring up for got pushed out. Dalai I completely agree all because. I've got some against brick right no he probably Kimmel put the most historic thing in bills history that epic comeback against Houston everybody knows everybody knows that Marv Levy said. Frank you lug the biggest comeback in college history now lead the biggest comeback in NFL history and it was like go to but he knows his tongue in cheek and everything but. And that happens and it's just like well it's really cool but but can he lead the bills. Tough on a comeback to the playoffs might well. He is not built up even a solid resonate as an offensive coordinator and as you see what is happened in. Philadelphia this year they got off to a hot start to finish they started what four L borne out for now. But I as a lot since that national teams since then they've won. Two teams. And it's not even that it's about how does the offense produce. For. The Eagles this season and snapping crate they been writing a lot this season on the coattails of agent Schwartz what led defects. And even then the gym shorts defense has been faltering yes and even then that's been faltering lately we'll get to shorts and a moment. But frank Reich in his time in San Diego that charges for awful. And any time your awful with Philip Rivers that's not a good sign now though Burris shows that you know he can pretty much do a lot of things for you but. The chargers were talent often that frank Wright did not do anything with it and I think that frank great needs to really prove himself as a coordinator before he can be taken C. Recently it has they had hurdles to. Yet Philip Rivers has as quarterback and full of rivers has been a good quarterback raiders he's been very good he's been a great quarterback. I get I get that is whole throwing mechanics might be different polite he gets the ball to where he needs to put it and he does it consistently. But yet. When frank Reich was in San Diego as you mentioned. He didn't he didn't farewell. Yeah I just think they just happen. I think the biggest thing here is if you're considering frank Reich as a head coaching candidate and it's how you stop taking that seriously. Because frank Reich is not. A guy that you want for this job because of the fact that he's not even accomplish not as a coordinator earnestly. What makes you think that he's gonna suddenly just take the next step and it be no problem next scene all ships sail smoothly here that's not the case it's not going to be the case. Frank Reich has brought up because the fact that his name is frank Reich and he brought up the biggest comeback in bills history and NFL history. And it's. It's a nostalgia it's it's sort of like the whole Marv Levy conversation I get that Marv Levy said all I was offered it I would considerate but. Is Marv Levy really going to do anything to benefit the bills at 91 at a get. I've said this before I'm going to say it again and I'll say it again and again and again and again and again. The NFL is a completely. Different game from the ninety's. So everybody sailing well this team needs to be top and a Bakley they were in the ninety sure. They may need to be tough but the NFL back in the nineties was called wholly different that it was now. First for people to say like all you know. We need to run like a similar offense the way we did in the nineties everybody runs that offense everybody runs to take on offense everybody runs no huddle. It's nothing new anymore. It's the same stopped. And bringing back old options is just. Not good agency old names exactly and guess what the bills and credit history of bringing back all names let's go back in the list of of former coaches that we've had. Doug were on the exception because he was the coach of Syracuse before coming here. We had Rex Ryan coach of the jets. Fizzled out after a while Chan Gailey he coached the cowboys guess what that didn't necessarily go out to the wall playoffs and then just. Just because up and what that record yes. Dick Jauron another coach coach the bears what happened he got fired there comes here the floor that well but then. He gets fired I'm just I'm ready to just either just say well. Let's just give this job to somebody who's. Dot. Oh Reza made like a good resume like if you live where everybody says we he's well respected he's an up and coming guy. If the bills really believe that in just give it to him that what are we waiting for just tell at Keeneland. We really believed what you wanna do for this team. Soul. We're gonna give the full time head coaching job. I mean I'm just I'm just sick and tired of bringing in these guys have had history of coaching before and it's just regrets just exactly retreads and where's it gotten us absolutely nowhere didn't it we had a couple of funds seasons where poor Ryan Fitzpatrick was throwing really well and played really well and you know the coaching is getting really good Dick Jauron got that huge coaching it's actually it was like only god and and he gets fired what the next year after that. And again it's something it just goes back to what I said earlier I RIL six weeks every trance retreads are available for any reason they got fired yeah. Coughlin that Coughlin giants parting ways mutual right but. It didn't end well there because they were not playing as well as they probably should have. And he had Eli Manning has his quarterback now granted Eli Manning's Eli Manning he could be inconsistent at times but this year he's been relatively good. Under. Then Mac I do he's been good for that he's getting the ball to his receivers he's making Smart decisions Eli Manning has turned it around. Under Tom Coughlin. He was all over the place. He never found I mean us aside from the Super Bowl years he was he'd he'd make really bad decisions he would. It just you just deal totally different Eli Manning from under Tom Coughlin under Ben Mac at UIC at least. Yeah it's. Yet. I mean Eli he is. Eli at this point you do you get. It's kind of like him speaking in a fancy perspective but it kind of really applies here in real life with Eli Manning. Peaks and valleys you don't which when you get them every driver let alone every game and Eli does mostly haven't together he was a number one overall pick and he proved that. I mean he's got you should rule Owens he's you know a perennial. Big name in the league and at worst is an average quarterback on bad day. So Eli Manning he's shown he's taken over games in his career he's done many times everything like that Gotti Gotti but Eli Manning also does. Get the traditional Manning face turnover. Where he makes a silly looking face every time he coughs developer throws and asked. APEC. Lori makes that case study data when did when his brother won the Super Bowl this past year just just. Blankly staring off just like what's going to hang tight for samples sent. Let's continue on with the list journal that you've got at least one other name wanted to name and it. Comes back to heartening on an old name from this team Jim Schwartz Schwartz led this buffalo defense couple years back before Rex Ryan was hired. Two number four overall. However there're couple things that you need to remember about Jim Schwartz's defense. And that number four ranking they were susceptible. To Le'Ron on terrible basis. Yet it wasn't Mike Patton susceptible but they were not signal great at stopping the run either. It was their pass defense and being able to use the wide nine scheme to unleash Jerry Hughes into a break out season. Allowing Leodis McKelvin to have a bounce back season where he just had to react instead of covering players. Stephon Gilmore is very good at breeding in reacting to any sort of passive zone coverage he's also very and it. You know be able to play man coverage. Gilmore you sought take a step back under gym shorts Mckelvin plea rather decent. However it's a lot to do with. Do you have chorus second play more zone or do you have corner of second place a man coverage. The bills had guys or more geared towards man so the secondary struggled he saw that they would give up seven yard catch is why those based on the ski at the pass rush is head and quick. They're given up a quick little past. I think that this is one of those things would though the biggest thing is as a head coach Jim Schwartz was 29 and 52. In Detroit. Not with Matt Stafford out with Calvin Johnson. With a talent at all I think. I think I was looking up when when Gus Bradley got fired. I was looking up some of those at the stats because he's one of the worst records for head coach enough history winning of an address in winning percentage. Jim Schwartz's car better list he's the he's not that far behind but. He had no I mean. Yes Jim Schwartz when he was here he had success with the defense but. I mean what is he I mean what is he gonna do with the offensive and and we look back to what he did in Detroit yet one successfully here in Detroit after that. Spend just garbage garbage is pretty much the right word to put in terms but. I just I'm just so not into that hold Jim Schwartz movement there's justice some movements that are just. And that's also harking back to a coach that was successful with the bills in some sort of aspect. Once again. Fans we need to move for became keep looking back yet and you'll win a move forward is to look at and some names that are. Retreads that aren't guys that have had. Just from repetitive failures thinking that all will need all this team has the tools to make you successful you can only Ream we can rebrand herself period and make yourself. It's here again it's just don't just. Just go up there and get the best next Jong option I'm willing to do best next best young option the best option right. Period and whether that's anti Glen with a that Jim Bob cooler weather that's. Harold you know heroin could weighing whether it's Kyle Shanahan Terrell lost and I guess yeah I just coaches that. Are proving that they have a chance to. Really made their name in the NFL right head coach Wright are it will we got to get to break it looked real fight 51 Tripoli by fifty to fight to do when we come back. Let's talk a little bit about what this game would mean for anti Lynn. What happened here for anti delay and two either eight clinched the job or be lose the job again. As you Rappaport said this is into Palin's job to lose the head coaching job for buffalo is his to lose and of course he might have desperately joining him. If he decides to become head coach here which I think would be of interest. Eagles re all fight if you want Tripoli by deputy to buy fifty Derek Cramer here along with myself prequel set this is bill's game they are here on WGR. The building owners never back in week three before they fired Greg Roman the got together with some players. Sammy Watkins LeSean McCoy and asked him I'll play calling in leadership and some other things about the offensive coordinator job which is why Greg Roman got fired. The owners realize how much players just like candidate Lynn or respected in the they've gotten to see. First hand what this guy needs in the organization when running backs coach to offensive coordinator definitely has the inside track. To be the head coach there in buffalo. And yes he's gonna. Coach on Sunday not to be coaching for his job because they've already seen. What he can do in the organization and as a coach. Percent of all networks Ian Rapoport from earlier this week talking about anti Lynn as the guy for the Buffalo Bills of course Rappaport earlier today tweeting out sane at this head coaching job of the bills is he is. To lose which I think that's a pretty accurate statement but. But again he could. Mean he could easily just say like. I'd I don't wanna be here but you know you would hope not that he would not want to not be here. But you know. We'll see where it all develops again. Today's the last game of the day her last game of the season for the bills. He'll divesting of finish is 88 I think that I think that if I'm correct here come if I'm wrong correct me here the bills. With a win they were draft they could draft as low as thirteenth and that they lose they can draft as high as nine. I think correct yes that's a thought so I thought that was out there is only the slowing there. The bills can I think I think with the win they could go higher than thirteenth. Ticket and a higher than right in right time based on anything that happens here today right based on the circumstances like of the bills when and and other teams lose then they say Brian hall and uncertainties. That seems rather than they can lose though. So yeah but. Also Harold Goodwin apparently is going to be a guy that the bills are reportedly going to interview and I known. Excuse me I know nothing about him and I am looking up his his bio. And he's he's. He's like it is early forties. Which is easy young guy but there is something that is going against him and was then he's not in the play caller in Arizona. Errands done and that. The difference I mean unless people view his offensive schemes that he wants to run as something that could work. I don't know but I mean again. This job is tough because we don't know work quarterback's going to be I have a list of guys that. In its ugly list here but I'll listen guys here that could be available or who the bills could decide to look at. On and now with. The whole Tyrod Taylor situation and likely EG manuals going to be gone regardless of the outcome of today will get a little that a little bit but. Their court exit to ration might beat. Ugly feels real fight 51 Tripoli factored into but if you attack multiple lines Skoda Mike got a cell phone Mike. If I can bring you up here at every gulp Mike you're on WGR and bills game day. Gortat. Yes well units and I never forget you version either but probably an Arizona. A lot of the media office coordinator I want someone to be the head coach Wright that. Are the problem we trapped people they don't know what occult timeout. They don't know what it investors don't know what to do that because they're busy doing. Well. Cooperatives that I played maybe our query would be very good about president rate watched that we need a higher offer or Eric coordinator. Who does catch up on what does the defense. And that's their job. Wright had coaches and actually that had coach. Right okay thanks like face of we appreciate the call. I mean that's that's what we always want is is a guy that can manage the game clock a guy that can manage the important situations. An act and I totally get that you bring it up because sometimes we do talk about like you know we wanna guide Aiken has that every new twists in the offense or or whatever it is but. That's absolutely true you want a guy that in in addition did being able to you know let the quarterback call on doubles or. You know create a game plan that's going to be effective week in and week out. You also got to get a guy that can be able to. Manage the team managed things on a short term in like that in them now. Situation. For coaching is if you can't do that you can game plan all you want to come up with these incredible schemes come up with these great place. But if you're not managing the team in the now. That that's certainly doesn't help. I will say this though it's one of those things are. I'm OK without head coach being able to play calling duties. There has to be balance bright guy like Bruce there and knows that balance they are. Coaches and coordinators they do know that there is a fine line that you have to cross where you have to worry about and I call your plays and then. Managing the whole game right the whole. And I think that's for Rex got new problem because. He wanted to call the defense so much have so much control and like it and and that whole again that's another situation with the Rex writing that was such and such a debacle. Was Ol I've turned over the play calling the Dennis Thurman and then later on the season Dennis Thurman says I don't play calls are local place. Wait didn't didn't wreck sane that. And then he's just like well whenever the coach says or gas leak that's a that's a horrible. Yeah. Mean why why would you even. Lied to us about this are just not even bring it up I mean. Goodness gracious come hunt and I mean. I wanna coach and and I agree with you on your point I want a coach that isn't afraid of too little play calling me. Know your limits yes no limits. Know what you have to do was a head coach and not as a as a coordinator don't mean again you have to eat if you're gonna be a calling plays you have to think like recorded a little bit bought. At the same time you've got to be able to do everything else on top of that and Rex showed a. A numerous times in his tenure with the bills and the jets he was incapable of doing. Yet now there is something else though they you have to take an accountant is this. I I still need someone that can give me enough confidence that. He was so in control of his units so and control the office or the defense or even a John Harbaugh who was so. Committed to his unit the special teams unit being able to control everything that way. If you are in control. Of what you've heard of what you were in charge of that gives me confidence that you could be in control if you've done it for long enough and for so well for so well so long. And that's where some of these guys I am I get hung up on like a frank and you know like that. It's one of those things where I don't know if he's gotten enough control in the and I thought. You know he hasn't had as much Democrats aren't as I think that he should it. And a retread sometimes is a guy that does have the clock mismanagement issues and that's why that guy is available it. Mike Smith of Atlanta he is horrible timeouts per. And clock man yeah. And he is a name that could be in the coaching carousel again this year and next year yep so which is just and he's he's the guy that's turned Tampa Bay's defense around. He's Devil Rays defense again as we said earlier. Dare fund a watch now and Mike Smith is their defense of corn and he's turned that team around and he's been playing. Really good and the defense of the playing really really well over the past few weeks on end and well it's just. I'm always willing to say there is risk hiring a guy who was a court here. That's always going to be there's a risk hiring anybody that you bring in exactly there's always a risk so that he was gonna go ahead and tear you down right away saying well. Is is this court near bringing. This player within his escort me are going to be bring along all this stuff. Now but. There's really only one way to find out. And yes there are retreads and have had success Bill Belichick Pete Carroll Andy Reid amongst them but outside those kinds of play outside those coaches. How often do you see your retread finding success these days. And that is where you have to really look out for. 8030550. Is the number one Tripoli 550 to 550. He wanted to football game tonight well tonight it's the Packers at the lions it's an NFC north battle that. The winner will win the division and the loser. Point be out of a playoff spot if everything doesn't go the losers ways self. Tonight it's the Packers at the lines and WGR kick up is is coverage here begins at 8 o'clock shortly after the overtime shell. Sunday Night Football WG our sport pretty of 550 is brought to buy outlet liquor when it's time to stock up to save every data outlet liquor MI armor he the right people the right approach. All right so depressing question that I want to pass along to. The listeners on a pass along TU Garrick wanna pass along to anybody that's paying attention. For Anthony Lynn this game. Does this team had any significance. For anti because and I mean let me just mention here. New York has banned a very very very very very bad lately. And other they got that huge win against buffalo in week two here on the Thursday night game. But since then it's band aid spent a downward spiral for the jets and new and if the bills but like let's let's let's hypothetically say I'm I'm and it's just thrown out there. What would it take for Anthony Lane to. Essentially clinch this job like what what would he have to do as a head coach today to. Say to Doug Whaley cede ownership. I'm your guy. I'm I'm the I'm the guy that you. Want for the head coach if anything really. Is or anything that he can do because. In my opinion this team. Is the New York Jets are sold about that I don't ho have all wind would really mean much. It's it's so tough because again the jets' defense date they often times if things don't go they went to build his mail it in they'll bill. You know take it easy. And then the bills and then their offense. Can't really played that well unless they must Fitzpatrick has a daily keep it weak to. I will say this there's I'd say it really only couple way is that wins stock it's boosted. If the team plays well for him I mean like they really guard you and they compete for this guy that shows a local respect. The other thing here is. If he can make sure that. Quite frankly turnover machine EJ Manuel. Is able shored up for this game. That those of the ways that you can boost that stock but I think it's already hot. I think that. There are a lot of reports stating that the bills can go Tampa Bay here. From last year they like Dirk Cotter so much they want to keep round. They fired Lovie Smith on what seemed like a surprise. To many people outside their organization the daylight. Dirk cottage so much that they had to keep morale they absolutely had to happen but it's there it's very similar bill last year might also say. We absolutely have to have Anthony Clinton. So the question now becomes what can do to lose right and and that namely that can be. Getting blown up by the jets for some street or lose the jets period or have the players not respond and there's there's a lot of things and here they are crossed it's here now. And I don't have to bring it up Farina but yeah I think I think I think that Lin really is the favorite here. And he's very well respected in new league circles around the leak. So it's one of those things where I don't think it's the bills not necessarily saying well he might just be the best guy that we got this right be hate. We might have something. Has got the full lines quick before we go to the break. Jerry in buffalo Jerry you're on WGR and bills game date or it had. They are going good. Call we'll I don't think this game should have any lead on whether read you know she retain winner and com. In order going up against right since Patrick. Jet there are horrible team right now. As soon see you know how this can make a different color bring about Brigham Becker not. On each year head start on that. Our thanks Gerri thanks for the call appreciate it yeah I. It's it's so tough it is really tough. Because I think he does have a point because the effect that again I'm suspecting the bills really like linked yet to the point where it's just simply. You know if they want him they're gonna keep ya and and as I said earlier if Dave really liken that much wire what are we waiting for that. What are we waiting for at this point if you really like in stimulant that much take that chance that take the chance. I mean. I know I know that I know that and we've been talking about the drought seventeen years it's frustrating year but I mean. Signing appealing to to a three year deal or whatever you wanna do and give him the one full year with his offense his playbook. Hissed. His play calling. Because. I think this year has been a year were late I think everybody after week two was like. Anti Dylan he got some interest in the head coaching position last year with a team like San Francisco. And you know he's apparently this really up and coming offensive guy. So why not like what I just take a chance I don't let them take over the offense but they decided nope nope these guys went to training camp went through two full games and Greg Romans up and we're gonna stick to the same office. And I think into Nolan. Is has been really itching to get his own style of offense going for this team and he still can even do that today. So I I really interest that I see when he stimulants gonna do. I do too and I think that you know. Jerry might have a point that this game really shouldn't have much weight in Q if he's going to be there or not. But I think it's more or less that. The bills technically do have to do the interview process in what they can just go ahead and announce Anthony Wright as the Q as the coach for the bills yes you have to and I think it's like three or four guys they have to absolutely interview yet because there's there's there's couple of the day job. Are rooting more liberal the Rooney rule yeah be fulfilled yet with the with the with Van Halen exactly but it's the other thing of first off due due diligent yes yeah you have a guy out there you obviously have to make sure that that happened and how long let me take we don't know but the other thing now but the other thing is that you don't just equal opportunity employment and give guys an interview for the job. Pat you could tell during either yes convenience. You know it's just I think that the bills really don't have. They can win doesn't really have much that he can do to gain stock. And I don't know how much he has that he can do it. It 30551 Tripoli fight 52 fact that the eject itself from our good friends at federal meets all watching today's bills jets game.

Heard the Rochester affiliate net everybody else in teacher just tuning into our broadcast and we heard dank caves update in right up top the hour. Did you a little bit more on what's going on cell. The much the main thing is is that. We've got a couple of people tweeting out saying that this is basically anti Newman's job to lose. Anthony Lane where she's got a coach today and he's gonna go to the interview process in the offseason but. Jason Lott come for Ian Rapoport have both tweet it out saying and it and Rappaport said this more than once that this job is more. It for him to lose this job than it is anything else but also Adam chapter tweets that. Gary Kubiak to this could be his final game due to health concerns also add a chapter tweets that Gus Bradley is planning to follow Anthony Lynn to any head coaching job he lands. Create a lean Bradley ticket and with that. Go to our eighteenth tee hotline in bringing itself the popular now whose lives in East Rutherford good morning Salle high Oreo. The morning and happy new year everybody happy new year do you as well sell. What do you make of this this new is regarding Gus Bradley and potentially joining anti link here. Well I think it's it. Plus for for two spots to parts of this first of all let's talk about their relationship I've looked I can't find any relationship between the two as far as if they've ever worked and it seems that they have not worked on the same staff anywhere. Played nothing like that however somebody just alert me a Twitter it's a great point at the same agent Jimmy sexton mean we don't buy the latest sex and represent every coach in America at this point it also owns agent he's also Rex Ryan's agent. And I think the guy I represent every coach so that would that would make sense plus. I believe it Heatley and interviewed. For the jaguars offensive coordinator position last year which of course goes Bradley would interviewed on and that's how you make an impression on somebody so I think that's where that connection is. So I would not doubt at all they tell once. If the aliens names started circuit circulating once Gus Bradley was fired. Those two may have hooked up and desperately want to say hey I'll if if you want me and idiots and I want you they said let's. You know. Make sure people know that that tell you every step in place what happens here Brayton is when their teams start interviewing head coach candidates whether it's yet they live. Frank Reich or anybody else for the bills or any other team. One of the first things they do one of the most important things they ask is. Who are going to be your coordinators if you can go to that room and you can have a name right there boom ready to go. Then that is you are way ahead of the group in your way ahead of the games and nobody wants to get those ducks in a row you don't wanna go and tell an owner GM. Why they don't know we hire male figured out that you guys will not take the job that began after they get it in that particular instance you need to know. We're guys now stars the bills are concerned I've been saying for awhile I think the bills would be a much better for three team desperately runs a 43 he did not have a lot of success early out of Seattle. Then suddenly the Carol comes in they have a few different they can they get Russell Wilson they spend some money on the defensive side of the ball. While off that defense shoots up the charts. He did a nice job for a couple years of course they want a super ball he winds of get the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coaching job in. No he had eight. Decent defense in Jacksonville nothing that was you know I think I've top of the class or anything like that. But I I think he would be a good fit in buffalo I think that the personnel the bills that would be a good fit for his scheme. And it makes it certainly enticing as she sat with actually having a coach that would already have a coordinator lined up. Certainly enticing self there's there's a name that comes out that I'd. Before today I really haven't heard much about I don't know if you heard anything. Harold Goodwin he's the offensive coordinator for Arizona he's likely going to get interviewed for some head coaching jobs including. The potential for him to interview with the bills what do you know about Harold good would it. Anything cell. Does it need this kind of then. Just you know kind of thrown out there as of late he was really easily been offensive coordinator for a few years. He was an old line coach that's pretty much what his specialty is only give aliens a running backs coach by trade. Girl that was offensive line coach and you know he actually spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Mike Tomlin I think that's a nice treat for him. He was with the Indianapolis Colts back in 2012 and that would be a deluxe rookie year 2012. And you know so he's been he's been through the league is also a former college coach. He's then pretty much throughout the state of Michigan eastern Michigan and central Michigan and University of Michigan but so he's had a a coaching career that started in the mid nineties. And I don't know much about him as a personality of course and are met them and I could tell you that they load up Anthony limb but I do know that in Arizona. When you put up the kind of numbers that they have. Put up port last few years on offense it's gonna give you look however they took a drastic decline this year there was a lot of expectations there that they failed to meet. And I don't really know I think Bruce area early runs that offense I mean have to go make sure and check but I believe Bruce during calls the plays and he runs that offense because. That would be more like it was here which in geely and Curtis markets were Chan Gailey. You know was the guy anchors my kids had the title but they're really do much so. That's as much as I can tell you about Emmys. A guy that I think gum might be in that state where he's just trying to get his name out there and he just write his name out there because he wanted coaching job and he got to do that for a couple years before you get it a true look. Suck but you are joining us here on the eighteenth tee hot under he gets them here gets so I've got to talk about something here regarding the quarterback situation is there something that. That you don't Britain's big question of the day has been. What does Anthony Lynn have to gain or lose from this I've got another question here and does EJ Manuel has something to gain or lose for the bills organization. Based on the fact that he is playing today. Well he has something to gain or lose himself that's certainly true I think that however he performs out here could go along way in determining you know college teammate you know there's battle not a lot of film this year obviously Vijay had to go back a couple years to get. Game bill that he can now step up and people can if let's say it's a really good game there could be personnel directors currently say look. He's grown in the in the year and a half that he sat on the bench he's growing at some nice things but they're not gonna take one game was a stable but it will obviously go along way to help them. To think that maybe he can do some things in this league he goes out there he has a performance like he did in the first half of that. Jacksonville game in London in that could seal his fate to have any type of a shot anywhere next year to compete for a job that you do want to compete for a job somewhere next year. I would be surprised if someone gets that opportunity guys think about it I mean he's get a still be a young guy and him and he's got all the physical tools he'll look for is a former first round pick albeit he was overdraft that I get it but there will probably be a team out there. That has a messy quarterback situation that says. Hayward of bringing a couple of guys and where previous shot to compete for the starting job and I think that's why. He has something to lose or seniors are the bills. Themselves I do not believe. Any reports that say that there are thinking of a you know extending hammer urgency of signing him back to be the guy getting rid tyrant in lieu of Vijay at today's an audition I don't believe that. I would be surprised if that's the case I'm not completely dismissing it are ruling out. But I would be surprised if that's the case I think you are a situation here. This is a meaningless game. And it's a throwing contract and I don't mean to be mean but Vijay Manuel goes out there if something happens to him. It's much much different for the organization that Tyrod Taylor had something happen and because of that injury guarantee or Karr dale Jones did because they're trying to you know development in. If not obviously a widely during they like that but. I would say just use it about you using up his last game any bills got their bills uniform I think that's why he's there today. So Sal on the go back to that the coaching situation I know we've heard from both LeSean McCoy. Sammy Watkins about discipline being an issue with this team. Now you're you're in the locker room quite often. Did you sense any type attention or any type of issues between the players and and Rex Ryan when he was here in buffalo. Now now I mean there all love Rex really they do I don't think it's a matter of we don't like Rex Ryan that anybody was saying that back those those players. Almost all of them of Rex you know tremendously. I think it's more about oh. There are certain certain guys where they go about their business day whether you love a coach or don't let a coach or whatever. You want a certain type of coach and you believe that that type of coach we'll get you where you need to go and I think there's some people that locker room. Who believe that this team needs more of a disciplinarian type coach more of a even handed type coach morbid detail oriented type coach and I don't think that's a slam on Rex Ryan as a person or. His relationship to players I think those players let Rex Ryan and they love having him around all the time. But. There are players who love that type of approach and they're going to be really mad now that Rex Ryan's gone in if you bring in somebody that wants of which are thought I knew that the players are gonna like that. And there's going to be other players like to simulate bullish on I think. Who would prefer to have a coach come in and keep their thumb on top of everything and treat everybody the exact same with the exact same count accountability I don't believe that they felt. The Rex was doing that and again I don't think that meant that they did like wrecks in the they leverage right CB does which John does. But I think those guys and maybe some others on the team would prefer to have it to protect the coach who believe that they've enough talent. That another type of coach comes in at with a bit more disciplinary structure in detail oriented structure that they could take the next step. So got you here on the AT&T hotline joining us. Live from East Rutherford, New Jersey bills and jets get a kick things off today at 1 o'clock you can hear cell on the John Murphy mark Kelso. On the call sell on another thing about the quarter wrecked situation with with Tyrod Taylor situation do you. Do you believe that hit do you do you believe that if he's not active today that this is eight a sign that. The bills are firmly moving on from Tyrod urge you believe that there is a good chance that he might be the quarterback still this team come next season. I think it's a good chance he's not here next year but they're still a chance he has not. I don't think they've completely made up their mind because they haven't hired head coach yet they're gonna wanna let that head coach at least having say. At last there's already played in place to do something else that we don't know about that what the new head coach comes in there to say hey. Here's the deal we got this guy in this or wrong with I I think. From what I understand they are going to at least have a new head coach have a say in determining what to do with tyrants who does that mean that they have to listen that coach. Completely now but they're gonna take that coach coach who says that coach gets in there it says look man this is the guy that I can work with him he's got this to do this within a run this. Playbook and Bob I'll block that may sway the organization to say okay we're gonna do that then and where to keep going forward here and have you worked retire at Taylor. Otherwise I I think that we've probably seen the last Tyrod Taylor in a bills uniform whether he dresses or not today and let's face it the only reason why he would. Not dress today it would be because they don't want even see him on the field and have any sort of chance of him getting hurt him and you know having to pay that injury guarantee this is what that. That comes down to so we'll see but I do think the next head coach and you look to the timeline here. Knew that coach gonna get hired before the end of the month. And right it's hit and now we're in January he can get higher before the end of the month. And they'd rather make a decision on Tyrod until March 11 right essentially having taken they can get out of that Patrick before that so. That's why it's important I think that they take their time they have that right coach command to have those conversations that mimic the determination to sell. I've I've always kind of wondered this just because that it would be a nightmare scenario if this ever happen but. Fur at the quarterbacks. Like let's say that they do have Tyrod inactive for the scheme analysts say EJ gets hurt and then my cartel gets hurt or something. Who's your third tree guy who would they put the quarterback. On the every team has an emergency guy. Who's humorous guy now OK so last year was crystal in him and he wasn't he's I hear I gotta think who the emergency guys and he's gonna tell me it might be. Could be jealously maybe Paula the somebody's got a team as a third straight as is the emergency got Ana I. I really don't know it out every team has a look here's the thing Rex Ryan has never ever ever. Activated three quarterbacks he's got a coach anymore they could today they let my point is over the last two years they've always been in a situation where any game if two guys got hurt. You have to have your emergency guy coming. Now remember for a little while they had mark we scrape of those uniform right you got a college quarterback. Right and then you have Chris Hogan who basically is a phenomenal athlete you can do all that he was there emergency guy last year's oh. I don't really know who the exact number emergency guy is either. You'd be surprised if somebody went through all the bills player bios you would be stunned may be how many guys actually play quarterback in school right to Kelly wrote to Keller because ultimately quarterback scope of their ago while everybody else is a guy there's a there's a gadget. I mean we've seen LeSean McCoy take a lot of direct snaps like I would I would think personally that. Media Guile it was Shawn would take some of those snaps at quarterback and if you put him back there it would be just it would be wild cattle they like you why he's not set up in and toss the ball down field isn't what did did but I mean he has he has thrown some passes before when he was glaring. All right our at our. Self with 24 pending free agents for this bills team point three or point four. Based on the count that we've been going on all week. Who defensively who would be the most important players to sign because the defense is the one that has taken a step back and probably going through scheme change from 34 back to 43. I'm sorry I lost you for once again as quickly again if you can with that question out. Defensively what are the free agents that you'd want to resigning with the a team going back to probably a 43 defense. If if they go back to 43 I think it's a great question because I was just looking at this I tweeted out a case and hadn't seen it. You know if Gus Bradley let's say where they got to come here or anybody else run for three he does run a 43. I think they're much more set to run a 43 but you have to Bahrain. Either you have to restart and Zach brown which I don't know if you can do right now he's gonna probably command some pretty good money in the open market considering this year that he had. And you know the bills Havel tonic cap room they depending whoever that Tyrod have more but anyway. You either want to resign him or somebody else who. Can move because they would be lacking in the speed department linebacker spot but otherwise I think they would fit and I think what you'd be looking that is. Assuming Kyle lives would come back I think at this point I should assume that we don't know. You're about to tackle would be marshaled ours Kyle Williams. Your defensive ends would be Jack loss and injury Hughes now one would be an edge rusher probably be used otherwise would be what they call big and but down we'll see you mean they add doubles Washington to kick out of that spot and again. And that your linebackers adjusting would be probably Agilent and the Mike the middle spot. And Preston brown at the same he could probably interchange those guys but you know either way you're looking at. Your Mike junior C am ranked number out now will the will linebacker to weak side that's the that's got to be faster he's got to go sideline to sideline in a 43 defense so. In that case. I would say that they would have to probably re signed Zach brown or they were at the get somebody similar to Zach brown all those other guys. None of our free agents so you're for this if if you look for three you don't have guys OK let me stop at the reds and Alexander obviously is a free agent. You get to you if you wanna sign him he wouldn't start though to immediate backup rotational guy would be great love to have him back but you just that the seven guys I talked about the only ones freeagent Zach brown. I Telemar thing before we go line item I know that you know we've we've talked about with with Stephon Gilmore being out. And likely not returning this team might be a big game for dialing key months the Seymour. Is there anybody else that you see on this roster that this deem would mean something to them whether it's a future position on the roster or like you said with EJ Manuel with the future with another team in the NHL's or anybody else on this roster that. Might see themselves line to have a big game for refute any future implications. As far as the NHL I don't know rate but the NFL tight about that it's okay by Ali Randy Ayers knows Ayers I don't like hockey so that's okay. That's OK I didn't realize that I sided it's been a lie I know hey that's our it's an earlier it's an early new year morning for everybody. He. I think that a guy that's interesting look at today I don't know he hasn't officially been active I'm wondering Logan Thomas art Logan Thomas gonna be active in the LP in the way. They Q2. On Twitter my man opposite issues he said Logan Thomas would be the emergency quarterback which is right. At a slider out of if he's not active I don't know who that would be in that situation right thing because he hasn't been active. But anyway my point is down that's I think is interesting here like I mean what's. What do you get from what you get from Logan Thomas if you do you put on the field can he handle blocking in doing things and amp L tight end has to do. On the field for three I think that's the type of guy I'd be. Look at it here trying to think around. The other roster anybody else that's might be in that situation. Keep Nazi or a big one like you said because of the injury to Gilmore have we seen on Gilmore who played his final you know those uniforms of those would be through the card jail. Seymour and probably Logan Thomas if he's active can probably really kind of show they're probably playing too. Either show they can start in this league or show they deserve to be out at a roster field honestly. In a funny thing with Thomas. They don't see and I did it and I guess it's I think it's a now he's halfway hockey but he stills aren't right or the upper like I ice eat you last night by the way some of the hotel that has not better in town like you want to watch and start he's. He's really excited and I know that in a situation like this a lot of bills fans out there who'd prefer. This result not but the bill's way I get a draft picks up like that but there's people out here this is their livelihood is at the profession. And they're gonna wanna go out there that want to put their best foot forward and they're gonna wanna do what they're supposed to do it light which is go play football's best they can't win games and from that aspect you know I I I hope EJ Manuel was out there and and mentally competent medical quarterback gets a shot to go somewhere in the LB a roster next year and neither can Peter via solid backup which I think that's what he's an average back up in this. And I think that's what he should he's YouTube he was super excited last night talked a little while the hotel and you know I think for guys like that you know even though this is a tough situation has bills fans to be in. At least you know you get a guy like that likely you can now on ABC what he can bring him or you know what he's gonna play for is arson might present a future. Our cell thank you for joining us and I know that we're gonna be chatting with you aplenty before. The bills take things off today's the cell talk to you again very shortly here.

All right so before it if yes I've got to nightmares are I know south kind of dismissed it and I'm kind of happy for it might it still on my mind all right hit me. Is Jim Angle. Say he goes ahead lights up the putrid decked jets like throws for 500 yards in five touchdowns let's tackle live lets an article mad here let's go let's go 300 yard game like okay bills quarterbacks at 30300. Those court expert for at least 300 yards in consecutive weeks Opel. My nightmare scenarios that EJ lights it up Doug Whaley who was enamored with him at first you know when he was originally taken. Keeps him around. And the next you know EJ Manuel starting quarterback Tony seventy. That is your nightmare scenario happy new year. I think quite honestly I gave it seems like that. It seems like that it's it's all. I'm glad cell dismissed it right because I had das I land. It all seems like it's just not going to happen and rightfully so. Mean EJ's had chances here I know everybody's gonna say we Jay hasn't gotten enough for the chance he got a full season to start he had. Four games the next season and then yet a couple of games the next season after that and we should be seeing. A guy like EJ Manuel continued to progress throughout his time here as he gets older. And the progression has been minimal it hasn't really been there we've maybe seen it go. Up up a few stops but. I mean I just. I'm just not understanding it but. Eagle real fight 51 Tripoli by 52 by fifty Derrick thank you for stick around in chatting some football with thank you I know you got a nice. Worked just on the hall here are Eric comes studios and Amherst. Self we'll take a break right now or will we come back I don't list of quarterbacks and know that. If you were you know listening earlier than me and Derek are talking about the list of coaches that are out there in the past those listen quarterbacks because. Sick with a quarterback conversation there's lots of names out there that. You know could be could be brought up for options or just you know just totally forget it just please forget but. You know he's known to have more jittery he's now sort out a bit further but not haven't time just don't know our review over the dome. Undertow so I think I'm prepared and it is the keys on dying on. Squad that go to ball over the bill Pickett who used osteoporosis. Involved Nestle to look forward to to be threw the ball. As Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins talking about EJ Manuel. EJ's getting the start obviously today over Tyrod Taylor cargo Jones is gonna be the backup quarterback. Behind manual and Tyrod Taylor. He might not even be active but south Abacha made a great point last segment. That was Rex Ryan's motto with only active in two quarterbacks now this week. Might change and into New England. Welcome back into bills game day I am Brayton well some filling in for Jeremy right here 8030551. Tripoli by fifty to fight fifty I know Mike you're on hold just hang out there for a little bit I gotta get this out of the way for throw quick. Bills fans know tailgate is complete another buffalo chicken or hot pepper crunch role from the original front troll factory voted the best product at. National wing fast it's sounds good original crunch rules official finger food of the W. GR also the weather 45 degrees supposed to be in New York that is balmy for January 1. Partly cloudy skies winds north west northwest at ten to fifteen miles an hour. Celtic pretty darn good day for football game in January. I mean. Usually at this time a year it is colder days are especially around this area here but even in New York it's getting really cold but sunny skies. I've of people will be gold of the games with the with some sunglasses on and that. Would be that would be nice and it in a January day Sul. This weather is brought to buy crude a collision. Make the right decision insist on crude collision are right let's go up the phone lines Mike here on WG arm these are your on ball will build three network here Mike good morning. The morning thank you for taking my call absolutely without. What had the bill's gone to develop card failed Jones it. It doesn't really sound like it's part of the conversation maker app that this guy. They I mean elephants and number one seed in the NFC with a rookie quarterback is like say they just haven't app has to do not from what he's quarterback. The plan that (%expletive) Like I remember ten years ago and called out lots negate all of upn and won them. When they're getting the I just don't understand you know I think is guy posture is one big tunnels card Ailes joke. Yep thanks bye thanks for the call on. I don't think I don't think it's the fact that he's a Boston it's not that I just think that he still incredibly raw. Because we've seen we've we heard well everything that carnal Jones can deal he'd throw a ball seventy yards from his knees that's impressive enough. But I mean you obviously can't play games from your knees because. You're gonna hope and obviously. But with colonel Jones. I've been a few practices I've seen Carnell throw the ball and I think that he's progressed from the pre season we've seen him preceding games mean. He can come up with some big throws like he's gonna eat handed him an arm. He can throw deep he can throw bullets like. He's incredibly raw. But the next thing is is he gonna be able to grasp playbook is gonna be able to run an offense that efficiently and effectively in order to. He's you'd be a good quarterback in this week. I just. I wanna see Carnell Jones progressed to be the starting quarterback though. Don't agree because. Any any quarterback beat you draft a quarterback that you sign and bring in you wanna see them produce you wanna see them play well if they getting games and Carnell jones' bottles. Where's that I'm like let's say he's not. Maybe today maybe maybe they you'll see what happens let's let's say that the bills go out and they put up huge amount of points on the jets. Make them look silly by the third or fourth quarter it it just might say. EJ you got a great jump but I'm gonna give Carter a Johns chance but see what cartel can do in the final game of the season if that happens. How to be excited to see what he can do. Because I think. I think McCardell Jones it's that big. It's that big arm potential that he happens. It's just. Now although transitioning to. Be able to run the offense know the system in and being able to be efficient at the wall being able to do the job. Now. I don't know if he's able to do seat and. It's it's a slow progression it's wrought but they're developing him and there's nothing wrong with that next year. I don't think he's gonna be the starter right off the bat I think that there's other names out there and other guys that they'll bring in before. But it's certainly be to back up you can probably dressed every day and every game and beat back. He's EG manuals likely not coming back. We still don't know about Tyrod Taylor but it seems like he might not be back. So colonel Jones might be. Your backup and this is a perfect transition because now wanna get to a park where your name off some of these names of quarterbacks that have been. Rumored to be available. Have then looked at guys that could be available in the draft. I mean. Where is being. There's just so many options we have and again we we talked about this when the bills. With a loss and other factors can draft as high as ninth. If the wind and other factors happen the bills to draft his lowest thirteenth. Seoul. To the bills think about taking a quarterback there I think it depends on who's available. Mixture risky I if I'm not mistaken I think he's the only quarterback out there who with 81 round rank for. For their breaking for their draft ranking beat New Zealand on the first round. Projection. So. If he's available when the bills are drafting I think that they would take a good hard long look. At what they might have a mixture frisky and if they think that he could be an option here for buffalo by all means that they want a draft and then go ahead. Take the chance take the risk. If he's not very than don't draft a guy like the EJ Manuel your 2013. Don't just go and say we're drafting a quarterback no matter what that was the biggest mistake that the bills made that your 2013. EJ Manuel is not first round belly. But yet they draft him in the first round. And an hour here. So. It is a suitable backup I get that he's a good back up but I would not trust him with anything more. I just an aunt and I get I don't wanna go down that road of 2013 where the bill say well we're gonna take quarterback no matter what. What a bad quarter rec class. Richard Fiske he's not there I'm waiting to take a quarter rectal or around me. There's other positions that we need to address before that then receiver goes from there. It was real fight if you want to one Tripoli by fifty to 550 or he'll on the Buffalo Bills three network okay let's get Indian decent so these names. Self obviously bears some of those names out there that. Could be options in the trade market of course Tony Romo. And Earl was right on the top my list for number one guide them to talk about but. Here's thing about the honorable I don't think he's coming here. It would take a lot for him to get to be able to come here it would take. It might take a guy. If you hire the right guy if you bring in the right personnel. That's what it might have to take but even then. I don't think I don't think Tony Romo is going to wanna come here. He's gonna wanna go somewhere where he can win within the next two years because. Let's let's face it his time's running out this week he's he's injury prone constantly. He's old. He's not the same guy he used to be he wants to win now. And get going. Before it's too late that plagued Tony Romo feels like coming here. So Tony Romo. I wouldn't I wouldn't guarantee him coming here I wouldn't even even entertain the chances of him coming here I just don't think it's happening. Another name that's a notable trade. Market guy Jimmy grapple. This guy's been mentioned a lot and here's the only way I see it happening. If Josh McDaniel becomes the next head coach of Eagles. Anybody else. I don't think it happens I don't think. It happens. And let's face it Jimmy Rob Lowe has. Gotten I think. I don't even know he's gotten enough to say I hate. You know he's he's got he's got starting potential. I just don't know I don't know if he has had enough. I don't this year he's had he's had the games were Tom Brady's been suspended heated team play against the bills and that was a huge factor X I think. David would've played against the bills he would of won the game. In plain bills one were here we are so. I just don't know yet about to grapple but. It seems like he's got enough potential to be a starting quarterback and being efficient starting quarterback but the only way to happens. Is if the bills higher Josh McDaniels as their head coach. If not. Irina beat the patriots wanna consider trading him in the division. To the jets that the dolphins the bills it doesn't matter. We'll treat them elsewhere trade amount last trade him to a team that they may be faced once a year or once every other year. But Jimmy drop lol I wouldn't put those chances high not a guy in the trade market there's there's a couple of names here. That are intriguing I guess. What does happen I don't know first one is Mike Glenn it. Big tall guy pocket passer and know that his names come up a lot with people wanting to give him a shot. So probably be a guy that. I would maybe consider. I mean I think everybody here has always wanted to guy that can be good pocket passer. But again Anders downsides Michael on his game. It's tough and after this the list doesn't really get much better. Because then may be maybe these names are available but. I mean I'm just kind of throw that out in the dark and we've heard rumors of this but who knows. Brock I asked what Huckabee and and that's available Houston they overpaid on this guy and now they have Tom savage starting as their quarterback and he's likely to start into the playoffs and that was a huge swing in this for Houston. Now they're paying four and they gotta do something about it. But I don't think team's gonna take the bait and uncertainly gassing the bills will take the eight. And the only other guy that I have and here is trade option is. Chase Daniel outing and a wire wrote that down. It was gotten starting time in the NFL and he's he's backed up for Carson once in Philadelphia but. And is it move and are so now we look at the free agent class and from the free agent names are. Yeah Ike's. Not the most global name is Kirk 'cause I don't think Kirk cousins goes anywhere from Washington especially if they win today and in the lions lose the Packers. I don't think that happens I think either way if the Redskins win eight would it. Get in the playoffs with whoever loses that and it that NFC north game between the lines and hackers which by the way we will have. On our flights is station WGR Sports Radio 550 following. The overtime showed he cared but hi we put. The fact is is that this game. And I know that Jeremy White bread writer here in WGR Friday were replaying this out. It bull if they tie if the Packers and lions tight they will make the playoffs both of them well over the Redskins regardless of what the Redskins to. And I think that's hilarious I think that if that happens that would just be. That would be unique. That's that's something that I don't think will happen but. You know will staples who happens but I with Kirk cousins I think he doesn't hit free agency I think he's either franchise tag again. Or the Redskins are able to come to a long term solution I'd lob long term contract with him. So the other notable names that I'll throw out there and you'd take your discretion in you can interact with me on Twitter or however you wanna interact with mean give your opinions on. Napa loin Oakland Raiders backup quarterback who's actually going to be starting from here on out because their cars got a broken leg. I've seen enough metal going to really make a decision but. It seems like that it's a lot of people are writing off Oakland because Matt points starting cell. We'll think we'll soon happens mettler Lincoln lead the raiders to a Super Bowl or whatever the case may be. The maybe he'd be a better option right now I'm just not on that boat. Nick fools and it and no Nell Jay Cutler that's a that's another notable name. Just three he just reminds me of of of of slightly better Ryan Fitzpatrick. Is decision making not great. He's east often times a loose cannon his personalities not great. Maybe take the chance on him but I'm I'd be really willing to just passed then another got it's that's available during free agencies Brian Hoyer. Not a great name. Not a guy that I would say yeah that's a guy that can definitely get me. Wins and get me into the playoffs with the two duffel and I got that I can be confident on but. You know. He has had success he has had some good name teams in the league. Whether he's gonna come here as back up for whatever. I mean but it but I mean for for starting quarterbacks assuming that Carl Jones is going to be the back of next year to bring in a guy. Like Brian where would not speak suitable the best option for buffalo but he either beat. You bring back Tyrod Taylor but you don't given the extension you try to renegotiate. Or. You'd do you do bring him back on the extension or. I don't know. Pick a name out of a hat draft somebody and trust that their ready. I just don't I just don't see it happening in both real fight if you want Tripoli by fifty to 550 will be right back in the other cited this break right here on the Buffalo Bills pretty network. So why would you take elegant look upon copilot different pedestal we are you know his track record it would over the course like it was such. This could have been a different box so why would you take it could be a win. Who still running back coach would know coordinator experience. Over a guy that you know in Detroit like a Carell Austin we have a friendship relationship wit. A legitimate good choice between into the wind and Terrelle Austin. I think to know pretty good Austin's. That's ESPN's John Clayton with. The Bulldog and telkom pot you on our flagship station WGR Sports Radio five fit your from earlier this week if you miss that interviewing you'd like to listen to it. You can do so over WGR 550.

Weekly winners photos weekly winners photos will be all posted on WGR 550 dot com he answers fancy New York's artisan cheese. Goal bills ago about a minute and a half here before. Are getting it to break here but a couple attacks that come through suggesting more quarterbacks. The first one is AG Mike Herron from Cincinnati. I know that last year he he played a couple of games with Andy Dalton being out. With his broken thumb and generally fare that while sliding a pass and another one. Excuse me men and tax the another one Texan and Sam Bradford. Most likely available once Bridgewater is back I'm not so sure Bridgewater is going to be ready to play by the start of next season his knee injury it was so significant. People were actually. It's getting sick. Over the fact that he had suffered the injury that he did. I'm I'm on the bowl where I don't think Bridgewater is gonna be ready by the start of the 2017 sees it. His knee injury is quite significant hike I just don't I don't think it's going to happen. I don't think Bridgewater is going to be backed by the start of the next season so I think Sam Bradford is going to be the starting quarterback there maybe once he comes back and then maybe he becomes available. Whether they decide officially release him or they decide to trade him. Just don't know some. Title thanks for the text messages thanks for your phone calls today.
