He lawsuit from the champion and launched its car. That's why don't quite fit in front of that net flu shot from the point ticket buys Stephen Johns gets in behind Atlanta where it's tied at 20. A third minute. The idea of a gold challenging the national hockey they've degraded. And kitten but at least the sabres are on the positive end of it I take no positive from that. And I don't I don't know. But it is just for all the folks are like a man. The sooners savers credit do you do love the offside you know more you know we still don't know I would like put down a goal back on the board and fire the challenge into the sun. So there's one positive out of that. Is that it didn't take for ever for the referees to watch her make a decision that's true I did there's there's. Another topic for another day there's too much replay in sports just too much lead time. It's killing the games there really is an I'm a replay we having this discussion today at that at the UB game. Because it did that we got a memo now the mid American conference is their spare renting with a replay on I'll save explanation because the make your head explode. Block charge is the arcs involved and it. And I just I am sitting there thinking. Were killed on the games there's their too many stoppages. Too much use of replay. It's out of control in all of the sports and it's it's sad I I thought the concept was a bright was a good idea. I elected have correcting mistakes. And I'm not gonna get into his discussion now does not Dave do this but there has to beat it out a way to rain the what. Some sort of millennial. You you think you shouldn't have replace. Sorry Adam silver said it was millennial that with a problem and this is why the hell he's gonna show us games you know Larry you are you were young balked telling me there's too many reviews the you know what it it isn't just it's. It's the concept of stopping your game all the time. And the national championship game was terrible rise they reviewed so many place right and and and look and I think and I think college football. Has a much better refuse system than the National Football League. You know there that guide the referee comes over puts on the headset to talk the guy upstairs I think it's it's quicker. But whether it's too many commercials whether it's too many timeouts for teams to be able to use whether it's replay whether it's. Intentional fouls valley guys at the end of the at the last two minutes. There are. We true mideast wet it baseball. Whether it's you know guys stepping off the mound stepping out of the batter's box all these different things. The games need more flow and sports in general there I am sorry this is a millennial think I think this thing get off my lawn thing for me but if there's too many stoppages you've got to bring the bring it down cadets killed in the sports. Killen the sport till the sports skill games regularly lighting could tell me. 8030550. To join us 888552. But if you can just waking up. Good morning happy Tuesday. We were talking about Philip Rivers and our number one and we'll tell you why in a moment. And we'll also take your calls on the sabres with a win over the Dallas Stars yesterday it was your thoughts on the game and it's comes back he scores nineteen seconds in. Michael had a huge game yesterday. He's got ten goals seventeen points in 22 games he's got. Let there was solid his first game back after the on this and he was good yesterday didn't have to be spectacular he was good. And when these team really didn't look at yesterday talents than than ever given goal had some really bad turnovers in the Rhone and the knife to feel sorry for Linden don't know these long for the Dallas stars' coaching world. Philip Rivers where is why we started with that. There is a tweet Bay Area journalist Bay Area journalist David Barkley right that the gays and David Walker the third. Put out a tweet yesterday that that claims. Philip Rivers isn't necessarily didn't playing in LA. And that the no writers are are an interest in sooner. Which got us thinking about maybe what do they could trade Philip Rivers the original tweet which Britain just retreated on the GR count thank you Brayton. Her source chargers QB Philip Rivers is not instantly removed LA and 49ers are interested suitors. I would go dot dot dot so would the bills and beat a number of other teams with the jets would be inched and I would think the browns would be and didn't the bears and Texans and anybody. Who is looking for quarterback right now would be and didn't Philip Rivers. So bills fans. If it got to the point. Where the chargers are going to trade Philip Rivers. Please tell me first your all and second. Could date what are the chances the bills would get them what should the bills give up what would you give up for Philip Rivers when he won naymick it you can have you want Lake Erie got ticket. We have what is the Pacific Ocean of theirs immediately have to do some better than Lake Erie. Also as a public service to everyone. If you know someone that says they should trade Marcel the arias let them know that they cannot happen with. The bills would have like a 46 million dollar dead cap it so. Tell all your friends and I can't do that yeah that would and they don't you know they have like 2530 million and cap room but. If you took 46 out in that money that would be a bad you'd be better off to say I'd rather bench. 99. For the next spied fierce. The new wood to trade him. But also bring up something else rod wrote something in about rivers as a scenario on future thoughts on this because I think this not only applies to reverse it applies to roam all it applies to drafting a quarterback applies Tyrod Taylor. He writes in rod says if rivers is a dream come true. And then major December home games a major December games open on the road. It's not Southern California would you think about that you know that rivers coming here. Or anybody that comes here is gonna have to play in the elements in my answer that is no I would never consider it and I think teams that do are fools. When the games this weekend. They were in Dallas home. Atlanta the home. Kansas City. Totally normal weather all the time although the result my store company and New England new language it was 48 there was no pursue was fine where's our quarterback from he's from cal for California after Cisco is right there where the games the week before that. You're asking her come out OK or your kill it now I'd take zero director of outdated at Houston okay Pittsburg in Seattle. And greenback occurred and who's quarterbacking greenback a guy who played a cal cal yeah. How about Peyton Manning right it is northern California's little chillier Peyton Manning was the poster child for can't win out we can't wait outdoor cold games right right. Race for the second part of his career Denver Denver yet once. It's that it's just the life I'd I don't believe it I would never considerate the bills considered it would EJ Manuel talk about his hand size being able to throw into the wind. Can't throw it's not windy what difference it make when it's windy. Never worry about it more and more stadiums brand new you know Holmes retractable roofs perfect field conditions. Just never ever worry about Miami used to be too hot when they do they put the roof over now it's initiate it Arizona used to be hot nets inside their conditions. When the bills ultimately move their stadium maybe it will be cold but Cleveland Pittsburgh Philadelphia new York New England how the same you know. So I would never worry about that and I think any front office that does is over thinking things and making a mistake they're trying to. Take something that they can't do which is. I don't address quarterbacks are assess quarterbacks it's a tough job to do that might be random at best and you're trying to say. Mandel like the way this kid throws when it's cold outside a Wii games. I put that for that that's why wanna bring up let's talk Arianna gets the bills were even called the should they play home games in December and the Pittsburg game was the only one. We're weather impact the games look knowing it was home the other night Saturday night post 48 degrees at kickoff. That's cold it's below freezing but no Reynosa know no lice and it's fun it's just cold so I mean in terms of you'd be talking about well we can't get this guy because he can't throw and snow. Or a blizzard or you know whatever crazy weather conditions how many December games are just. It's called to the twenties today and I and I don't know how many quarterbacks are out there that would just be. Humble they just can't handle. It's just too cold for them to actually go out and complete passes and 25 degree weather. I think you're talking about such a small number of games that are and by the way. Both quarterbacks are dealing with the same weather conditions the other team's quarterback is thrown in blinding snow as well as your sights I would where it's often. Kind of cherry pick because he usually do with a quarterback that plays like Peyton Manning in a dome or warm or warm weather guy played his college ball and Florida will and rivers is the same for this what you're doing is you're taking all of his road games only. And if you're doing in January road games he is the lower seed every time every time fate many wanna lost 00 road game in January. In a cold environment it would event. Because there with a lower seed yet they're playing it and it is the playoffs you're not playing a bad team or the road you're playing a really good team yes so. I sure hope that Doug Whaley who has considered this before doesn't anymore. Right when they when they signed Tyrod Taylor off the street they think about how he throws in January. Mention the bills considering how quarterbacks throw in a month that they haven't seen regularly in seventeen years. Look at Libya occasional regular season game in January and they did this illness like played the jets how's the weather that day is goal but generally find it usually is you know. That I am getting some tweets about it essentially if he if he doesn't want to move to LA why would you wanna come to buffalo I totally fair question. He's got eight kids fair question but again we do have all their names by the way. And I think he'd be impressed by that. Fair question that we have all the name yes well what you want just we will put them up on the wall just Wikipedia right nobody. I think look when it gets right. That the key question is again this is all hypotheticals. This is all based on a guy who's a journalist and I don't think even works for a newspaper. Tweeting something. So this may all be. Pastas you don't screw around four hours talking about something that's actually not true which wouldn't be the first or last time that happens on the show. But if it gets the point where this is a legit story for those either saying why you wanna come to buffalo moment appears choice people are traded. And if the charges are going to trade Philip Rivers. Who says they go to Philip Rivers and they say word you wanna go if the charges are going to trade Philip Rivers maybe they just say okay. We're gonna trade you to the team that gives us the best deal probably not in the division. Perhaps not in the conference but he might not have any say whatsoever. And barring a I'm not reporting I'm just going to retire. Which I'd I don't know that that would happen. Is dedicated guy amounts to feed I don't think that would happen barring that rivers saying well I'm up I'm just gonna retire will report to buffalo. And he goes wherever the charges trade him to do so again that's that's. Weighed down the road there may be I guess it may be nothing to destroy but. The guys out there and this is even possible. I want Doug you Doug Whaley who talks about how they're constantly trying to find the right quarterback. Thank you do everything your power to convince the chargers descend Philip Rivers to you. And then you've seriously upgraded that that quarterback position then you can spend your off season finding your safety to cornerback you can walk away from Gilmore. You can move on from Tyrod. And go find another wide receiver for Philip Rivers and do your other offseason goodies. And I think offensive coordinator would be very happy to take the job here if he had Philip Rivers as his quarterback who quarter it'll come first. That was the bills corpsman are going to be. Got a coin. For the going do you have like I mean I know rooting interest I I do want to you know as soon as possible because. I shouldn't whenever it's not every difference of it happens on Thursday or happens today but. The kind of offense they're going to run. I think we're going to see a pretty big change I wish I could help and what Greg Olson likes offensively I don't know. Childress was schooled in the West Coast but I don't I don't know what schemes like Greg Olsen has run in and he's been in lots of offensive coordinator job. Is he can't hold down an offensive coordinator job so I wish to have an answer for. I think like you said yesterday that bit of a better idea Brad Childress got the job what the plan is at quarterback. And now I'm not gonna bring the Philip Rivers thing and that think it might end up being just hogwash at the end of the day but as as Sean McDermott is interviewing offensive coordinators. When asked by the way. How much would you have to know. Here's my question to you okay you're Sean McDermott you're interviewing coordinators guys that might have different offensive philosophies. Might espouse different systems. I know McDermott said is that a good coach should adjust to the players he has how much does it matter that you might not know who the quarterback is here when you're interviewing for the offensive coordinator job. You've got to know that it's not going to be. Right it's not going to be Tyrod different like if you're an enduring here and they yesterday interviewed Greg Olsen. Does McDermott just interviewer guy and say what is your wrought what are you believe in offensively what are you like to do in terms of coaching. Or would what do you have to know well it depends Sean I might work with Tyrod Taylor. Yes certain element working with not one woman working with the my break in and our rookie coming working with cartel Jones in year 20. I wonder if you'd have to actually give the guy an indication. Or your quarterback is going to be for you figure out if this is the right offensive court in a former team or you just hire a guy regardless and he adjusts to the players he adds. But that's the other thing. Forgot it's gonna adjust to the players he has been Brad Childress runs a spread kind of motion based very multiple West Coast kind of thing right is not and if he doesn't have the quarterback to fit that there was all the sudden you go on sale like all right I'll let you run an entirely different offense that's a cure aside I I how much the quarterback plays into what Sean McDermott's asking the guys the Corning yep. I wonder about because this time a year you get into. Hiring a coach and he'll say I'll adjust to my players. But you probably only hire a coach that is close enough to that group of players anyway. Relic when Jim Schwartz came in. Jim Schwartz didn't a silly adjust to the players they hired Jim Schwartz is they thought. We can probably run his system and he can take his system and the tweak here and there and the wide nine comes in it. You know when you hire Jim Schwartz you bring in the wide nine when the Eagles hired Jim Schwartz. They then. A couple bills players over to add to jump web themselves. I wonder it's gonna like chicken at the end paid his total to what it takes to get the players that fit his system but we really wouldn't have hired him analysts were close to that any. Yet I think with defense you know it's a lot easier I think to say OK I'm going wide nights you know what. You linebackers now your standup defense events. Atom in the set Chad Jerry Hughes you're gonna set up a little bit wider Shaq loss of whatever you guys gonna set up a little wider little bit further off the edge. In this defense as opposed to what you're doing in the past as opposed to. An offensive guy says. I'm a West Coast guy timing. Shorter routes precision. In in the decision making for the quarterback. And all of a sudden you have a guy who just can't do that you at all you know I got her I got to blow the thing up I can't run the West Coast offense it's. I don't know name another offense that you run of the guy can do the timing and precision of the West Coast offense I think it's easier defensively too we just. 3443. Wide nine I think it's a lot easier on that side of the ball to adjust your personnel. That it would be to try and take. A quarterback and his skill set and try and make him fit in your system if it's just not the right fit I think that that's a I'd get the whole adjusting thing I think that can be a recipe for disaster which is why I I. I'd like to believe. In in inside one bills drive Sean McDermott and Doug Whaley know exactly what they're doing at quarterback. Have at least have a really good idea because I think you'd have to know that when you're interviewing Greg Olsen and Brad Childress and whoever else you might want to talk to if there's anybody beyond those two guys. It has the play into it you I think you have to make sure this guy's plan and what you're doing a quarterback are fit. If if Brad Childress is the guy discard Dell Jones. Have the skills that or the game to fit. What Brad Childress is going to do offensively here with the bills you you'd think to be some kind of connection some kind of tie in if not. Then you're going out and finding a whole bunch is a slew of new quarterbacks to make it fit for the new guy coming in. 8030550. To join us but let's face it 888550 to 550. Is this the Philip Rivers story. And like the pep in the step by had this morning like looking forward to coming in talking about quarterback. Just it just underscores the whole off season it's all about. What's your plan solace who's going to be throwing the ball and it's all it's all about. Whatever name is out there are lifted to listen to Tony Romo might be out they're great let's talk about it rivers met yet they're wonderful. Does this some suggestions that maybe nick falls is cut by Kansas City great all delve into nick falls a little bit more I'm. I can't wait to find out what the answer is at that position. Polls. Or. Draft pick I know I'm reading more or about to Shawn Watson no my Internet I I mean I I am just. I can't get enough of quarterback options out there right now and I'm all into every name it's on the market at this point because I'm desperate to find an answer and we'll. The bill draft tent we haven't done this much we're gonna probably wanna get to know all these teams the nine teams picking him from the bills who could take a quarterback. Cleveland of course is that one that they definitely could Cleveland does also picked twelfth guy so. The browns have maybe the most interesting play here because if you're the browns drafting number one overall you might think. You know for playing the draft year and want take one now I'll take. Miles Garrett go whatever I go get us budget impact defensive player like a game changer that side of the ball right immediately you might think that's the right the right thing to do when you take your chances at twelfth. But the the chance to take his right here the rest of the teams ever Cisco they can pick a quarterback unless church this river scenario plays out and and they're off the board for quarterback. Chicago he could acre quarterback absolutely because Cutler might be available to now Jacksonville I don't think so not yet. But sounds like that wealthy believe the press conference and they're all in on board it sounds like that it sounds like Tom Coughlin tourist there. By the way are Jack tool so it's a Con Coughlin makes all the decisions and now the counter Chip Kelly. They interview Mir Chip Kelly of Kelly with Don Marron and Coughlin as some that some explosive material. How in the world is Chip Kelly no idea admirals and work with him a nun adds I'd leave me. It's gonna make some great meeting room conversation it's like putting off Ferrari engine on a vast spot or something like houses gonna work the guy envision like. Nick Saban delegates Lane Kiffin all the time on the Alabama sideline with a maroon and Chip Kelly well Jacksonville's 45 this Tennessee no quarterback for them but guaranteed. Sixth is the jets. And that's a good chance yeah they drafted if you and I don't think they have anybody that they even be cultural given a try that seven is San Diego. The reverse scenario makes it complicated number rate is Carolina no way overnight Cincinnati probably not content is awful. Now teams that are close that I want trade up and maybe get that spot and to get too much to worry about. New Orleans is eleven Cleveland again at twelve Arizona Indianapolis. Philadelphia Baltimore Washington Tennessee think the next ten. There's nobody it's going to just move up a few spots ahead of the bills somewhere unless New Orleans and decide to move on from Drew Brees which when it's time to find the next week to be a big surprise that thing. If it's Childress it's built tweets this and I agree think you do two pits Childress falls is a very good. Yes likelihood that only because you can connect the dots because they were together in Kansas City. And you have of veteran quarterback who had a number of starts who's won games who's been right in the the play I think one year in Philly. And it would be familiar with Brad Childress. And well familiar with what Andy Reid if read Childrens gonna run the same thing familiar with with a Andy Reid and Brad Childress and Matt Nagy were running in Kansas that. 8030550. To join us 888550. To 550. You can share your thoughts on that Timmons hamburger on WG yarder right ahead. There are guys that cloture brought up early build up points on the ball low blow air time outs here injuries or soap or. My question is I'm seventy years old and we hit Georgia and turn our lie they can't stop this thing and the everybody in front of me I was or her brought everybody gets our army stands in order for me to watch the game a year to string yeah. Now they've got to address so when you have somebody. With some type final and you're short or so leader from recourse. We have but I guess the problem I have with a seminar here yet and I get frustrated at times too but. I bought a ticket you can't tell me to sit I mean what when can I stand and I stand out. Key third down I can't stand on first down but if it's 31 and they need the defense to make a stop can I stand there. Can I stand if the offense is in the red zone when can I stand when to exit. Our point is. They do it for your well outstanding. Right now is okay but that's you're OK so but now they wants to get it wet windy it Taliban to stand. And when did tell a stand to sit. Well what are what are you up some more. That's not how it works so why is it's not out alerts are there affair and they're allowed to stand and cheer and it's I guess it's frustrating but what are you gonna do certain export all I I hear you attend but you can't tell someone not to stand up and cheer for your team. Sure. Broke her every guy I hear you Tim you got a I got dynasty by deceit I in my there's nobody in front and I can't come up with a rule that tells my fans based on what road you're sitting and if journal wrote ten you have to set your route 27 don't worry about you can stand. All right yes yes it's up it's that the Fed is allowed to stand and cheer them on sorry it's frustrating but I don't have an answer for annoying and it is frustrating to get something new except when you go to the games. RO. I'm surprised territories and your front seven not detect how is only one time to yell at someone for standing and that's if they're doing the wave right loan rates. Is now jerk yet look I I've I've been their Tim I've been at times had a game where I didn't feel like standing but at the whole row gets up. It happens in hockey games to reverberates get not to get up so that says the way it is I don't have I don't think you're given that the rule and say. You can't stand up what you can. The bills of the ball outside the fine and there and positions court you can stand up there at midfield you gotta sit down I just don't know how you do that. Yeah I mean it's on US. Team is. The united dive at the big deal with this a lot they try to do their teams have and for people who sit I've certainly been a game to people been told to sit down the cut and it's from. Like an usher like people can't tell you have to sit were getting yes. It's tough I think you've got to know where your seats are and the likelihood of standing in the angle to the ice of the field and I think it's on the viewer. If it's I mean if it's me and gets on the New York yeah I guess it's some instead electing that they never sit down like understanding the whole game right OJ police say so wouldn't a wealthy man on the wall and into it because people sat there and here in night. Wanna stand you stand. You're outdoors. Yes it's cold looked sometime. Yeah Tim I I I understand your pain man but I just don't think you can. Have a hard and fast rule that says you can't stand. Unless there's you know touchdown or whatever you interception or stand at the obvious moments and cheer and and it's packed that again I got yelled at a team five the 2007 Eastern Conference finals. For standing yeah yup. That I'd gotten yelled that I don't stand that much I'll Stanley everybody else is standing nor have I ever yelled and anybody. They sit down and trying to watch the game. To understand stand and if it means I have to get up. Okay then I mean I was fifteen at the time and I'm 62 now I was probably only 5859. At the time and yet. You yelled at children who did the weight I've never yelled at a Cha Toby young's a couple of well I heard you actually were scolding them. Top of the voice. 8030550.

And off the trial tonight for some thirty face off Pittsburgh and Washington in a seven a great game on. National television 87 in overtime. So. I don't know Milbury was on. During the intermission senators thermal Ottawa is really sport whose brutal if it's too many goals there's a Philip Rivers story today a Bay Area journalist tweeting that according to a source rivers does not wanna go to Los Angeles the might want to. Get out of the chargers franchise need. The reporter I should say says the 49ers could be a landing spot in the war of course talking about reverse today in Rappaport. Report in the bill's interview Greg Olsen. Josh McDaniels with draws his name from the San Francisco search and Kyle Shanahan might now be the front runner meanwhile. But we said this before you ever needed proof that everybody gets jobs everywhere. Rob Ryan interviewing for defensive coordinator in Washington I just think that is so funny. I mean after what happened here on had to say on the on the tail of what happened in New Orleans how does anybody a shaky resonate to begin it right. When he went to New Orleans and then shaky when he came to buffalo and now but he and even Washington is like. We likely we see look we we knew the regiment when he came here but it but I was willing to say I may be in New Orleans that was. It go. Sean Payton and he didn't see I'd I would Payton and they took the defense away from him and it wasn't what he wanted to call and all that but then he comes here. And works with Rex and the defense is. I don't know how he gets the job interview with. But he after his last two stops anyway. Gold they beat the less I pulled out 12691. Roy williams' career win number 800 for North Carolina Syracuse. Might need that one to get things back on track to back in the tournament payment and BBC. Now kinesis lost a mama's diver lost to Marist there's your carrier headlines in what I was doing in the break. From Joplin papers I was you know like that was reading up on Greg Olsen. The offensive coordinator fired by the jags again this is like another. Everybody gets hired in this list but you know it's inching about him and I've got his bile off the jacks website now files for coaches assistant coaches. Typically only point out the good things so no matter what a guy does good career bad career they're gonna point out the best seasons. But. The guy him and he's bounced around as that I know I mean he's been all over the place fourteen years in the NFL fifteen years at the college level. Offensive courted with the jags. The raiders the box the rams and the lions I'm going through some of his quarterbacks out he had a good first year would portals. All right so the jaguars went from 32 in scoring in 2014. To fourteen. They leaped up eighteen spots in the first year that also work with portals and then this past season they went backwards and they fired. Olson during the season but that's looking at some of its quarterbacks. In Oakland. He did get a year with Clark but he also had to work with Terrelle Pryor and met my glowing. But his one year with Clark harsh rookie year 3200 yards 21 touchdowns in Tampa he had a couple of good years out of Josh Freeman. Who's no Josh Freeman is nothing special the quarterback and yet. They had one year there where he threw for 25 touchdowns only six picks 3400 yards. The Buccaneers had actually won their best offensive season history would jump Freeman and of people told. Everybody in Tampa you can win games with this guy Josh Freeman. And they probably want some games and then yeah he washed out and edit in with the rams get Mark Bolger one year and Marc Bulger threw for 4000 yards. So it's it's kind of he is not exactly had. The greatest of quarterbacks to work with a broken in San Cisco quarterback coach Jeff Garcia. And college at one point he was working at Purdue which Drew Brees but in his pro career right I said he's bounced around a lot. He's had some really average quarterbacks that he's dealt with in terms of his most of his time as an offensive coordinator. But portals is probably the best guy he's had in his career is an offensive coordinator so the idea I first glance it Reza match but he can't keep a job just keeps going from place to place to place. He's had some pretty good seasons with some average quarterbacks though anyway just thought I'd feel a little bit better crackles with the guy after reading is by no. Previous data today they came out over the weekend where he get the damn Viles met about five minutes before we do that quick football note. This came from I mean times that the 538. She tweeted out this stat. That you might find surprising. That NFL pass interference penalties this came out of the weekend she wrote this. Screaming at the raps for pass interference in the works. And here's the proof Boca defensive pass interference is called 50% more often. When it goes to the sideline of the team on offense. Smokers is also to the bench is yelling it's creating. There are more pass interference call threw 50% more often. On the side of the field okay where the team that's throwing the ball. Chrysler is not pass interference that's not get to the guy here's everybody yelling out of shape pulls the flag. Well a few close human nature Mary Ellen but it seems to be a conscious decision human nature bureau from that side. You don't wanna BL that all day while so you're a team that's throwing in of key situation one could argue. You're better off throwing to that sideline you're more likely to get a call third deep on that sideline. 50% more here throat Prodi your sideline ginger gonna get guys yelling on the bench yup at the rep at the line the official surprise you know. Yeah yeah I'd I'd like to believe that they can shut that stuff out and not not throw a flag blog idea that I don't think they can set it up because I don't think they know they're doing it. It would have to be officials would have to be alerted to this wouldn't think the league would know that stuff and maybe pointed out the guys as the great them maybe they will now pay and Joseph Smith and an old. It again this is this is the human element of any sport once you point that out. Then it becomes less likely because the official says god is not. You start over thinking it yet. Just an interesting stat over the weekend so. There you go throw throw to your sideline 8030550. Joint instead about the sabres head coach is with us next on WGR. Sure enough. Season when you really want to know what's going on with the receivers. He's he's on the net and as you aggressor if you respect head coach of the Buffalo Sabres then smile smile when Howard in Jeremy right here on the home of the Buffalo Sabres WGR. Radio five. Thought you might only melts your power of attorney buy into the and and health helping your business stay healthy and my clothes you casino resort falls through casino resort Niagara Falls can. Story to the AT&T hotline were joined by sabres head coach Dan bows and here on WGR. Mr. bout my Howard and Jeremy good morning I don't. Tom welcome our morning. Appreciate it coming out let's let's let's talk about yesterday's game did a nice bounce back one team needed and it's. Did a minute tell you got a weird hockey team and I I I don't mean that in a necessarily insulting manner. When they they start playing well you look like you're gonna get on a run. They you know have a couple of games like Tampa and Carolina and then as a fan your about to write them up and say this team is killing me. They went to game in years died due deer back in again so let's talk a little bit about how maddening it can be I guess for our coach with a team that's up and down. Well having good advocate consistency you. How we play him and when we play. And getting the wind is a little bit maddening when you go back. It's a game sort of breaks. Before the Christmas break in the Carolina and in Long Island and in the Boston game were you had your game against the team in the third spot where you'd. You went to a woman. You're right there weathermen and you count against them yeah. You know the eagle on the Tampa Bay and Carolina and earlier I talked with Carolina game I thought. Threw about 45 minute point three minutes. That was we've played really strong and really well and who have little or minutes or ocular. We gave up three goals and I was serving in right around and you go from have an up. A good game coming up on the wrong end of the wanna Carolina and about that this morning when you're in that the team where were written up in the hardware than in the trying to jump over to take get get close to the and the don't know when that game but. Although we don't want to disappoint when we came back Coleman and got a win. Against bills team. Would you like Corel what you saw for your team yesterday in the win over Dallas. I scored in the first point second is that because. It's actually something we've there we like it to open it yet and yet I think that's the big. Get the building gauntlet of cholera that there was a dispute. Via. Or technical that we've done much better in the last 67 games this get on the scoreboard first. And get up in games so we came out pretty well and and they're getting to go right up helped but. The thought ever our team did that are really good job against a dangerous team there are dealt and struggled getting win. There may have been reported four point one in the game but there hijacked off balance they really play stretched gamer they're really well our team met. They generate a ton of offense. Quick strike offense would that be met but our guards leave your job. Staying on top of that and then limiting a lot of those opportunities. You mentioned Tyler Ennis Dan if he can stay healthy. What does it mean tear your team your offense to have venison they're on a regular basis. Read that it would love I'd love to see it would that mean. It's just just seven happen for Tyler. Most of the last year and a half of them and some worry that I'll be in dealing with the injuries. And and again these. Coming up an injury where. I still. You know it's still little don't think he's up to speed. It is indeed the acceleration quickness that's Tyler and it's. Agility that he chose with the pot a bit around out there right either he still working to get to a 100% than there was little via. A work in progress probably for another couple weeks but. Other potential of adding a guy who can add up and to your team who toward a goal scorer. A guy you can certainly past the talking and had power play lies and five on five would be something that we desperately need. We were talking about this earlier you were then it's back you know you're looking your your top six here in whatever form we wanna put it. Michael Wright arcane and it's the postal Riley what are your thoughts on structuring your team in a way that you would have. True top really top not scoring lines keep all those six guys together in whichever combination or spread it apart a little bit and trying to have three scoring lines. I like Clinton highlight get news best six guys RBIs. As much as possible in scoring conditions and opportunities to had the score sheet. Back in common we don't have a two lines or it can come and you know at critical times. An opportune times through each period TV timeouts are coming in you have you know you look and shorten the bench structure up and and get those guys on the ice together to launch though. You know sometimes there's opportunities you argue would. The three best guys out on the ice. In those situations essentially mixed up their top two aren't yet maybe ejector. Or on O'Reilly and a child or salami or the same time so. It's really just I think more opportune time to get the top six players are reacting more often in those. School. I know I think it was last week we talked about I I could write her being together and you might as shown them together and practice of the morning of the show. In that I know yesterday that I guess they both talked about playing together again what are your thoughts about trying to keep them together now and that you could your mentioned to us I believe last week that you thought given go. They they do play well off each other what are your thoughts about trying to keep them together for an extended run you know obviously if everybody's health. I think I think that. What we'd like to see what we hope that seat I think. That would theater down the middle to lower seven. Some of the ones that we've had. We use sentiment Saturn got away from him being on the length. Part of the last. The last couple games Sam is. Played some time would jacket and on the road trip more or more with Jack on the wing and and then we've now last game. Put him on the wearing the jacket I you know you said it and I believe it's true wake beat beat giving goal memory and up each other. I'm past and each of the pocket in those two. Have the best chemistry together. And especially Ryan was rhino with Jack. At your or your experienced and over the course of your career Nathalie is a coach but as a player head has. Have a lines become just much more fluid around the league and for you. Just just the way I hear you talk about how wanted to get other guys suffer from warships and try to get your top six out there is many times as possible off the TV time out you kind of mix things up is that something that you feel like has been an evolution of the game. Aggregate elude you mentioned the in fact that playing career. And I was pretty well anchored on the fourth line or. Who just slide so much. But. I think you know. It did happen. I'm still back in the old days where you know there's the check in line maybe one night and an end. An energy line maybe the next night where do what some fluidity of movement though a little bit for different coaches. Are played super. Andy Murray in LA and he always had the top two lines restoring line. Third line of the check in line in the and a report on an energy line and people moved in and out of those who knew. In new value moved in and out based on the color Jersey but there was some little audience that I'm. We have Mike Babcock was the same way and I have a lot of respect or there was some players that. We're specialty players that moved in and up double up to turn around situations and specialties so but I do think now with the game how a lot timeouts there's lots of arrest the players there's a lot more fluidity as you mentioned in the air or Ichi different players. Playing with. The cops Letterman. Maybe a double shift maybe go down plays with the fourth line energy line yeah. Ryan Ryan project cycle and that gives a different look at a different complexity to your team when you're moving you're you're best players in different spots. How much does it matter to you player input I think I've I've heard both Jack and Sam in the last 24 to 48 hours talk about it seems like openly talk about how much they enjoy playing. Witty each other so is that something you would take into account going forty even if they. And had a dry spell on the ice and Indian produce for a gamer to. You'd be definitely. In current age of the players. Past and know him that he'll ever. Live like to play with. Our leadership best when it who that you don't fit with that at different times for different reasons. Bum you definitely have that knowledge it doesn't always. Going to it in and I have. I have to be careful when Brinkley you have to be careful yes. Yes there right articulate project cycle. You only have one answer to give you. Other roommates yes yes yes right here at the view today is gonna say yes yeah I mean outside the mothers know. They'll inject like play each other and they're fit well together and I know they know they do put. They. You know they they're sometimes players like playing with their friends and a player like play. I would Geithner well reasoned then yes you do know and project and similar play together and now they're so well together. But I also know it at times. Or you'd like our position with players and people they're like clearly does not work it's not that I root it's not enough fuel that and they're gonna breaker. You know going to to a decline in the matchup is the. Damn bottle this on the AT&T hotline. One of the other things ought to bring up we'll get to Toronto is second but I wanted to ask you about the starts this team has now I think you've actually scored first and and I think for sure in the last three games. But slow starts have been an issue for this team we've brought the W before and and I am curious I'm not trying to be a jerk here is it. Do you believe. You have to give like a rock Ross speech I mean I'm sure the staff has talked about sluggish first periods and how the team plays better sometimes in the second or third. What are what are if what do you guys think is the issue how he corrected is it the coach. Is it the players is it to get Gavin get into the rink later earlier what do you do. You view. You mentioned that several things that you try to do or do differently or. Prepare the players differently in hockey. You know I think. As. Employee of sixteen games the year as a little bit more. A world. Ron Iraq. Keep the players energy and end. And emotions. Before playing at your local ball game given that it's. Once every week in and sixteen times a year. I'm played 82 you know our routine and our program we you know we talk players we are meeting an hour nap before the game. It's not a time to really. Rev them up and go crazy. With Knute Rockne speech and our happy for the game build the down and back up before. For the game starts what that happily go to war on the comeback and so. Well we do different routine things we talked to vote approaching we. We've said different times. We've. That changed our our warmup but our activation proteins. We've. Turn up music in the today it's time to time to get focused before the human and you know we've we've you know we charter start to return our games and sometimes you find that 1 o'clock game. They seem to be better than the winds at different times. As well maybe rotor personal home so. You know we we have done some different things tried different things we've. Maybe go over the function. What civil law kicked the can at times two tries some then a little bit different. Two get a different result than. Some of those starts. Last night there's an 87 overtime game fifteen goals I caps and pens. You're playing a Toronto team tonight they can score they can skate so safe bet that the that did the mindset is. Safe road game tonight I think if you're looking for a yeah I don't know gobs conservative defensive when everyone equality is is this one of those one of those lineups one of those games. It it's. QB you know like it's we go game to gay men and look at that he would different teams we play and having just played the Dallas team. There's some similarities in how to Ronald plain and what Trout does that are like ballots which can be a high octane which can be. It would make two long plays that could try to stretch it out outs still. And speed to do with that can be a dangerous game they're real aggressive scheme. That puts a lot of Champloo a lot of pressure on you. A much like the Dallas team canceled there's a lot of similarities to that game and a lot of similarities do. The game plan which is. And staying on top of their speed. You know it's. There's been asked to go to you can slow it down and you can minimize every opportunity that they're playing well that's going to be. Help MLB important an idea distraught in the keep this game. You destroy our chance to down and minimize the up and resilient. Going forward we have to wait for the new Lander vs knee Lander storyline here they've got that dealt Willie. But with just throw quick on Alex how often are you checking in on on prospects on players there in Rochester and other meetings to talk about. A guy like that who might you know his careers I've seen just getting started he would have been with the team in training camp and gone to world ought to the world juniors now Rochester whether it's him or any other player. That's throughout opened on the system or how often are you getting or even. I don't know asking about the guys that are down on the farm. And. Almost. Almost a daily here. Early every game that they play. Getting the full report on the players in the games room and other statistics. As equally as. Coach Clem bear down there. Twice a week you know what depend on our schedule on their schedule. Twice a week but rather doing a vote. While the players are doing so quite often the scouts. We have ample and in buffalo that. Attend grammar games in the that are in the area so you get there or are all playing without do more than. And of course without the he was at the up illegal player in the world junior. I'll put in Sweden and end Cameron and the amateurs don't rep there watch them sold out or or about equality. There which was really well really good for him in and soon as he came back to be hammered she played probably his best game but came up probe. It is first came back from from the tournament so. Yet the uptick was bitten you read the reports in and get information and talk what towards re damn Lambert. Dem for let's go I pulled up your career stats. Hope so far have got I've got 429. NHL games. And nineteen goals so here's my question. But if sandy Murray and Mike Babcock had properly use you in the top six role how many goals would you have scored in your NHL career. I was score votes. Thirties and then after vote. A hundred games are about system and it's 615. And then after a hundred games Mike and and you look at that fired you up six that looked into the NHL. Then I'll guys I was thinking you would have gone like maybe a couple hundred. Yeah I know I played. Not. You always like played all right did get a few opportunities to play a little higher in of let. I don't. I guess you'd always like to play more but I don't think you do those guys. They are mistaken in using me out I was used. Kind of I guess I just gave you a chance at glory there that's all. As always Dan appreciate you giving us some time thank you very much and good luck tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
