Or I Twitter at John Murphy show bill's news today yes there is a quarterbacks coach today announcement came just about a half hour ago that. David Collie has signed on to coach the bills quarterback spent the four last four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs as assistant head coach at wide receivers coach. Came into the league in 1994. And so he's been heavily for a long time since 199422. Years. Keep him with the Tampa Bay Bucs went on to play at two join the Philadelphia Eagles and spent a long time there coaching wide receivers until he went to the chiefs obviously his connection with John McDermott. Is that long stint with the Eagles 1999 through. 2012 David Kelley 61 years of age. Spent the last 1818. Years with Andy Reid and he is leaving the Kansas City Chiefs. Where he was assistant head coach wide receivers coach come into the Buffalo Bills as quarterbacks coach. Interesting no doubt I we don't know coach Kelly we have an attitudes talked with the coach McDermott about it but. The guy who spent most of his career as the receivers coach and recently assistant head coach I'm at a buffalo work with a quarterback to what do you make. Yeah I mean I'm times. Really think about it I know you know to rapidly as crazy as it sounds a lot of these coaches do coats out of the position they might have played or. Something that you used used to seeing you would think this guy. Should be aware receivers coach and he should be quarterbacks coach he should be DB coach they'd they don't move around and codes in other spots you know they kind of grow up learning the way. The colts in my assured guys that played the position then usually you're gonna you know play the position in the NFL. You is he going to coach that position and some former fashion I think. For him. Being that he's been a wide receiver coach for so long to mislead. I'm I guess they wanna I don't know I don't know. He hasn't coached quarterbacks in the long time he did you know way back in the day. You can look at it from a wide receivers perspective and coach quarterbacks that way right listen this is what the wire receivers. Are looking at this is where they're being told that they need to be and souls bases you know where you need to be putting the ball this is where you need to be looking. I guess that's how you can look at it but I can't really. I can't really put a grasp on you know why receiver coach that's been primarily a wide receiver coach come in the coast of. From college respect about sickened about this a guy whose band mostly wide receivers and assistant head coach at Kansas City with a Andy Reid. May be from his perspective we don't know this because we were talking and we talked to coach McDermott a maybe from his perspective it's a chance to sort of round out his resume you know he's on the receivers and now they'll do the quarterbacks and maybe some day he gets consideration as a as an offensive coordinator or even more I could see that from him. But the long association and Andy Reid obviously John McDermott comes from the Andy Reid coaching tree and I think with that kept you look at this coaching staff the all of the experience on this coaching staff. It's pretty impressive I think in nearly got what 22 years coaching extra tuning NFL I think that's really impressed at. They everybody who he's hired mean they've been in the lead they begin they've done person years they've been in the Super Bowls they've been to. Championship games they've you know they've been to the playoffs so they're gonna be able to really. Bring a Coulter here in and help to. Also still faculty in these players in and help out coach McDermott says he's deftly done need some help from XP experienced guys I think he's done a good job of hiring veterans around. So if you look at what's left on this coaching staff the hiring today of David Kelly at quarterback spot. On the offensive side of the ball the bills have their coordinator Rick Dennison hired last Friday David Kelly will coach the quarterbacks Kelly skipper is the running backs coach rob Boris coaches tight ends. Offensive line run game coordinator is one kiss deal with Andrew DC assistant offensive line coach. The only vacancy of the major position groups on offense is wide receivers. And I know they're working and that they've done interviews and that on defense Leslie Frazier teacher coordinator Mike lawful coaches you defense applying averages the linebackers coach. Defensive backs no higher yet for that position. Any craftsman special teams coordinator so it's all filling out. That's what dome that's clearly what coach McDermott been doing. India less than two weeks since he's been on the job with as we said wide receivers defensive backs in the maybe some audio lower levels did you you know DB and when I receive the prima Donna of the leader takes special people to come in here close those guys and that's why those two positions haven't been through yet because nobody wants soaring with Barack. But that is nobody was the word within got to meet you find the right guy who can handle those personality the equipment for juggle those personnel right. Right now there's elect on as we said Chris Brown is gonna join us a little bit later in the show like for mobile at the Senior Bowl chris' interview with the bills general manager Doug Whaley coming up we open next couple of minutes here from the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama we got the super ball coming up and it's kind of a quiet day in this bye week before the Super Bowl. And we've got Steve tasker coming up at 1 o'clock. The Pro Bowl is coming up this week as well in Orlando Florida we actually have a crew. At the Pro Bowl and we'll get you know as the players start to show up there are the next day or so we expect do I get a little in the news maybe checked himself the Buffalo Bills. At the pro ball. All the deal with a Pro Bowl tough game to watch of the major professional sports probably the least watchable all star game for a variety of reasons. Most notably the fact that you know wanna hit who would wanna hit who would want to put their livelihood on the line and meaningless game a month after the season. The ever I don't wanna be hit. They don't wanna get Ortiz and right about playing approval and think about it the guys listed the bills clues they haven't played since New Year's match you know and and your clothes there before weeks several weeks since their last game. And you're talking about now got a commanders hit right now one it right now you know and I don't wanna get hurt especially from a guy like Lorenzo who is you know trying to get a contact he's a freeze it right now you're gonna have a lot of guys like that up for contract claim him probable so that's why. You probably never see approval. Be any better than it's ever been you know and it's just because. Guys don't wanna get hit they don't wanna give her now understand in the fourth quarters like an unwritten rule was a close game does start to play a little bit harder because they want their money they think they want their bonus money. My camera and I don't that is that is just something like 45 or 50000 if you win in my half of that if you lose. But if you bring. Especially when those guys out Hawaii. And a brilliant you know well 1520 people out there. That bonuses and pay for their you know their flights and in entire vacations so guys want that bonus that's at least not the play a little bit art. Well it takes us to know what would make this better game what would make this some more watchable game and maybe. What would make it better suited to honoring those who you know are all stars in the league this year. And when we you know in the news yesterday with the Stephon Gilmore go into the Pro Bowl from the bills named as a replacement yesterday. Zach brown name Tyrod Taylor got invited can't go because injury at seven Buffalo Bills. Who were invited to the approval five of them are scheduled to show up and play. From what would make this game more watchable what you think it might take what I hear your thoughts on the phone lines open 8030550s. And number. Outside buffalo its toll free call at 1888550. To 550. Or by Twitter and that is the topic of our Twitter poll which is. Half tongue in cheek but not really at what would make the Pro Bowl more watchable for you what could the NFL do. With this annual all star game to make the probable more watchable but we've had 530 votes and so far. 57%. Say the heck would it get rid of it we don't lot of probable. Pretty march 21% say allow the players to play any position not quite sure how that would work. 15% this of the tongue in chief park. 15% say let Roger Goodell be a player in game 7% say move it to mid season which is an interesting concept. What do you think what make the probable more watchable more enjoyable. A better representation of the great players in the game certainly they deserve some recognition. And when you think about even the bills seven Pro Bowl invite tease coming looking guy like Allen Doyle Alexander I like Zach brown. This big for that this is really big for them out of the culmination of their career and other gonna want to play in the vote. A free agents but this is big commitment and you want them to be recognized. 57% BC get rid of the game well and what I mean what we need to skills competition. You know stand on a stage and be saluted at you know honors in a film honors an aura. It before the gutsy super bull in the like that I can get rid of it in entirely. No I don't I don't. I understand how the game it's is going to watch and to be honest I've never. Watched a full pro bull like I might want to quarters something like that and watches and I've ever ever watching him along to act and I think on the one play that stands out was. When Sean Taylor is no Mormon. Yeah I was warming that's like the one play that stands out in the Indy Pro Bowl but I just never really watch it you know and that place stands out obviously because of how Harden how this is he he hit a Mormon. I think when you think about the Pro Bowl and you think about any all star game. They're never good. Might and that's that's the NFL the Pro Bowl NBA all stars not good I mean is just follow certain game to be entertaining I guess so. They sponsor and otherwise while I was in the starting him in can be entertaining as well you know it's it's entertaining because those guys that are charges you know doing crazy plays adorned different dogs and things like that there's not a good game like he's he's he's not a game centers showmanship on that missile musical moment. A lot of people like this is mrs. Or you get tired of seeing the same things you know god is there's no defense or anything being played in it in the India awesome games so. You get the same results from that game or the same. Feedback from that game that you do in the Pro Bowl you know amount of Pro Bowl until it would never get any better just because guys do not want it they don't wanna get here they don't wanna get hurt so skills competition would solve that problem right every day you can do something like you don't throw the ball through the tire. You know work with a jugs machine. There's got to be something offensive lineman in defense of Miami can do that would involve him in just a show there athletic schism I think Atlanta trending in that direction with some. Skills competitions coming up this year at the Pro Bowl this week the pro ball now they used to do about a different things right into some guys get hurt. Germ and made it took away like the skills competitions and things well but a good. Amount of time and now this is like the first you do bring it back the skills competition I think that's what there would be really need to go to you know Saturday. Guys don't have the word I mean you can get hurt doing anything. But if you're out there hitting you're not gonna give to draw at least of his skills competition we're having fun we're competing and I can kind of give him all without war and about another guy hitting me. Yes now what about doing away with a altogether and your fellow Vietnam I'm. I'm a favorite if we're talking about this poll I like the rise to go. It. Look at the Ryder plate a little small college football and know that you really a 15% taken down to participate for what you can take to tee off on. Why would you mad at him for. There's because they make him millionaires left and right owners players what's what's your beef I think all players have would be about what. About just the way he is the way he finds players. Different things have been in if I was doing now to the players just don't like the fines of Dublin upon right now. So they just ignored the miscreants in the lawbreaking and I mean as an item on March 25000 dollars for dancing in and the only. That's. Lewis might well this is the NFL it's entertainment at the end of the day is only in its name. Daisies that it does so in attain and that's which is bulls beat dole and entertaining the and so and you decide I want these guys to dance anymore. So I'm fine if under that broad stroke opinion with their because you know occupying it for dancing. By yourself India and so it's in orchestrated choreographed thing that typically would result line. When you want you wanna go to bullets at parties want to when you look do you wanna be entertained as a fan. The dancing doesn't do. You. It's taught us army ABC Monday night it's it's not party did guys party guys score they needed to you that if he dances by himself celebrates his. Genuine enthusiasm that's that's fine it's cool if it three or guys run over him and do this routine that they work and a all weeklong then you know it's like we'd what's the point. Well this year they were funny guys for dancing on in on Mike and Antonio Brown I Guess jeans. Quote unquote ratings and they will find. That it's let's epic problems that you would want at the drop LB or even if you if you dump the ball I'd like to immigrant youth who do you department doormat I mean it they're taking away you've got to ceded to taken away a lot of fun out of this game. Like a lot of things like it's entertainment is supposed to entertain the fans and you get a kick out of guys dancing and have fun. I mean uncle why should guys when they scored touchdowns. And the Baltic news as soon walk away that's born. It's about the game it's not about the celebration and and look I'm not anti celebration and I don't please don't portray me as a guy who. Think it should be no Fun League that. But to say you wanna hit a series you'd want it right Adobe has fines players definitely an. That's a look. If you have a dispute eco you know other there are avenues to. And of that dispute. Yet do that what do you think what would make the Pro Bowl better we've had a couple of suggestions up on our Twitter pulled a couple of suggestions on Twitter right now jam tweets and I'd honestly rather watch a skills competition over the choker but game. Packet that mom mark as the I don't play the whole thing entry Orleans economy unit to. I. Com. Others adopt him checked he wants to all the places they harm on draft day and story with a blind side in the probable and watched. What would it take I don't know which one would make the approval. Or watch. Would be. You know of doctors and people gonna want the people do watch the pro blog that I'd never why won't have never talked in one. With the one while the Pro Bowl. You're never did that. Organ talked to about the pro ball maybe get his thoughts is a guy who was seven time Pro Bowl performer in the MVP of the Pro Bowl and too many years ago Steve tasker. Will be this at 1 o'clock but let's get your thoughts what would make the Pro Bowl better. What would make more watchable phone lines open 8030550. We're told free from outside buffalo 1888552. By fifty. Or whatever act talk about about the bills about the quarterback ire about. Where they're headed or the Pro Bowl let's start with Ron in Virginia. Good afternoon round while the show Europe in the year. Hey are you doing are you doing John appreciate you guys. Arm. Comment about something you guys said yesterday and called wondering why. You also and stood in code to a electorate no huddle type offense could do you remember back Eric Kelly days where he basically invented in Ohio. So what don't you think that we can implement that could look at delete a lot of people go with a fast pace fast paced. And I think belt would be real beneficial to us thank you. What do you think. You know I love when an office tango and two faster pace. Even a bunch of different types of fast paces but the patriots have a right for five different paces in their offense is seems like they're going up temple but they'll get up to the line and stay local with a silent. You know they just have a point to different temples and often. I love it when you can do that you know I think it also helps that we young quarterbacks because you have to think as much teachers out there playing you know swapping accurately. Helps out those young guys but. You have to the unity got to pay attention to. The teeth you know and you can't run the no huddle offense the entire game so you gotta be able to get into. And just run your normal office but if you had an office and a quarterback that's able to run a no huddle and stays at temple I think it's great. Seems many teams anyway have gone to kind of a young. At least at tempo as part of their plan and and and I talked about it dumb. You know yesterday we talked a AFC championship game and actually that the steam but Dupree who linebacker for the Steelers talked about the the pace that the patriots started with let me fineness and and felt atomic at a it says exactly what I said. Pittsburgh Steelers got that torched obviously. When Ben Roethlisberger powdered after the game that the statement event too big. Bomb he was just talking about. The offence but to pre second your linebacker quote that first strike despite surprised he came out firing they caught us off guard we were checking in they were checked in at the same time. Hats off to that team they had great preparation. I thought that was a big part of that gang. That right the first strike I give the the patriots moved downfield the Steelers. Look I'm prepared patriots found some open receivers. Moved downfield opening score and I kind of I think it kind of set the tempo for what bottled in the rest of the game that the patriots demonstrated that eight we have this temple I don't off they ran. A whole lot of no huddle after that first drive but they demonstrated we can do this so you better be ready for a puppet closing in but you princes to mess like this. Aim is like a sock back there like oh that they're going fast and we can't stop right now you know it's kind of like. Win win a team is is run and it down your throat and there's nothing you can do to stop it that's how they came out they started the game fast. And it was nothing that the Steelers can do to stop how fast they were going to stop the plays that they were running. And I get it I think when you. When you come out like them we talked about this I think yesterday most teams will come out and try to feel the other team out in the first two possessions. The patriots come out and they tried to score fast that's that's their game you know this is what we can do to you. If we wanna abilities there we can do this and they did it and I am thinking I would think that the young Steelers players like me. Like what are we supposed to do with this is nothing we can do it there's these guys are not tire we're tired. We're trying to check the different you know plays retirement check the different things different coverages while they're making checks and and Tom Brady funded out wide open there's nothing we can do. 8030550. The number toll free 1888550. To 550. A Pro Bowl suggestion from Robert lack wanna Ira go ahead. I'd guys. We'll call that we have been of the probe of bogey likely be eliminated. Our. Best epic limited admittedly good football game. It is the big guys that is. You know well. You've got your job. Two errors cut aged position when they drop out did you get to second tier players which really don't think that there are your top two players are big imposition of an air. And they want big big big topic I'm a millionaire. I think Edwards then it's. Our our our own good you know you connect ridiculous bodies so hopefully. There was. I'm a good point we kind of talk about this little bit yesterday rob about I don't know and I wanna gets testers thoughts on this is probable. It's always been devalued. Come because of what goes on a lot of players don't wanna play unit you know whether they're injured or not guys don't wanna play in it somebody else plays and all of a sudden there are guys in there you think while a few pro bowler I mean that happens that I think I wanna get Steve tasker thoughts on this it seems to happen more now. That it did in the past doesn't it doesn't it's. But it seems like it was held to a higher standard. You know at least back when he was planners or early two thousands and now you do see guys like I'm on my golf. You know like Aaron I'd go now I don't know this because guys have already been there or not. But you see so many guys who and out of the April boy I don't I don't know that was like they're back in the day I don't think it was I don't think so we'll SE but it seemed like it was. Again I don't want some like yoga but it seemed like it was more of a singular honor before. Yeah I think I wanna take that trip across borders on YE you know. I don't know if it now and it's in Orlando does that have anything to do with the guys as well and I don't know I mean I know when I was playing. That's one of the things that you you know obviously you want to win. But you wanna make it approvals. Obviously you're making it approvals you've had a great season. And you wanna be able to take that trip over Hawaii that's like the tradition felony now which maintains that traditions. So I don't know that has anything to do with the game but I just you see a lot more guys pulling out of this game now and you did you've done in the past. Pro ball this week Senior Bowl this week in army and Chris Brown is at the Senior Bowl all week long he's going to be joining us live in the 2 o'clock hour on this first day of Senior Bowl practices but. Chris is already at work. And had a chance this morning in Mobile, Alabama to catch up with the general manager the Buffalo Bills this is Doug Whaley says season now in the personnel department. This is where it all gets started at the Pro Bowl and Chris Brown had a chance to talk with pills GM Doug Whaley at the senior ball. Chris Brown here on Buffalo Bills that comet the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama joined by bills GM Doug million. First thanks for joining us and you know you're staff is already done a lot of grunt work on these guys are ready to you know the seniors. What t.s still have to be crossed. That you guys are focused on yours this week on some of these play. A lot of interest has to do with meeting these players and interview them and it's the first time we can really get our hands on them. Proceed AS and to talk to him and get their personalities. Another thing you like to actually assesses. Guys from smaller schools like it puts town guy or western Kentucky guy going up against. Formidable seniors so the practices all week that helps us out a lot not to mention the game. Maybe small school guys are guys you wanna see a little bit more of just be for exposure purposes are there any other players. That maybe there's a little more work to do maybe an injured player that maybe didn't see him as much of the field this year while we always try to put as much effort in that everybody should be on injured players small school guys are big schools guys. But again the biggest thing about the senior bowler of the two things like this before one interview process but to to get that level field competition because when you do when scouting and especially. Don't work sometimes the competition level that they're facing is enough to snuff so this is the best against the best so it's a good barometer. With about a 110 players here this week how do you divide. The work up amongst your stance to make sure you guys see everything and talk to everybody need to talk to these. We we make sure our area scouts concentrate on guys from the area and specially on one interview processes there's any lingering questions out there. Sit down with a guy and get all that stuff because we're gonna. Transition from here and a week from now maybe we team with two weeks from now February 7 star. Our draft meetings so we will have all the t.s crossed and I's dotted and that's how we. Break up the responsibilities for the week knowing you guys have cat. 24 unrestricted free agents coming up here at the end of this league year. And you have a new coaching staff to coupled with that. Heavy turnovers kind of almost anticipated by outside observers how. How does all of that. If at all impact what you guys are trying to do here in the handle you're trying to you know play it doesn't we approach every year as we're trying to scout everybody from pros free agency to restricted free agents to all college guys on and even after the draft so. Our scouts are always focus on. Scouting and valuing every player out there that help upgrade our roster. That number seems daunting. But a lot of those guys are back up death players that we feel we have a really good chance not only to retain that may be signed for a long term talking about those free agent that we got coming up and looked. On the field here this week. Is they'll are their position groups that are. Offering may be more top flight talent than others and those tight end groups and a lot of publicity down. Eight and this is for the last couple years to tie in group is in general in the draft class and thinner. Just because of the the transition from. Now colleges or more away from the traditional tight end using what is right in the big wide receiver. So this is a great year for tied in the bumper crop really excited about that any other positions they can't stand out here this week in terms of the talent. This weekend it's really deep at the defensive line may not be as top heavy as years past but the glut of guys. From may be second one down that there's a lot of bodies that we got to sort out. Coach McDermott now has an offensive coordinator place him in Rick Dennison how might that help keep you in your step scouting department a better picture. But maybe what they're looking for on that sad life. All together not only with Rick Dennison. But what our defense staff soon as he gets all of us that together we actually just set up to date right sit down with them and say okay give us your vision of the offense the defense and special teams. And then we'll start incorporating. There thought process of the players we have staff already on the on the team ready and how their vision those players how they it. And what they plan to do so with that in mind it is kind of the timetable set as to when it. And how you guys mechanic and a cramped the roster and make those decisions at all position. No doubt about it I mean I can gambles will start soon as we get back from the scene doubles down but the coaching staff. And the pro personnel department go over our team and and we preliminary steps to getting game plan for the offseason. I'm very good Doug thanks again for the time you could look at your work done here this week absolutely and that's bills GM Doug Whaley here at the Senior Bowl on Buffalo Bills that yeah. Chris brown and the ease at the Senior Bowl to get started I got the schedule right here that was the cited the weigh ins at the convention center.

Sixteen regular season games and now the playoff games. Ed any point and I know you've become that's annual be ready for the Super Bowl but is there.

Between agree your music by Gartner last year really respect the way he goes about Putin's every case. Very professional. Are smarter. Very determined not to kill or characteristics. You might see in some people put that you know he has all traditions while just one here on. And I think there are hopes. It make all these have a player. She is. Eighty guys you beat the Packers do to get to the Super Bowl the the cowboys were out a team that everybody knows the Packers got to the national team do you feel like the Atlanta Falcons sort of are under the radar when it comes to a pro football fans in America the states. You know I'm not sure don't so much attention this you know we we tram just hunkered down here and focus on what we can do it. No we we know we're capable of humans regardless of potential so you know we destroy about our business and it is that we were. You know it's what we are talking to a guy yesterday on the show about how your roster was built. Part of it I think in him you are an example that your your center Alex Mack just guys who. You know for whatever reason were available in free agency and and as side down to the falcons who a lot of fanfare without. Much notice you you know obviously acquired a year to go and then Alex Mack coming over from the Cleveland Browns we were the number one pick it. It's almost like the falcons kind of snuck up on people of New York she. Yeah I think this kind of permanent Gujarat. Bringing guys in track and you have a lot of guys. You know maybe you didn't know about and so they got here but they're you know. I think there's that double a violent talent and find the characteristics. For. And Portis. To get on the team. And you know certain show. It was that been like you know claim under tank when the post that came over from Seattle in the what's his personality lagged how does he command the entire team. What's it been like playing France. It's been great. I mean. When I first got here out just like man this this question also. True or a and I honestly haven't had this response like you know high school college just. Really. To really loose atmosphere in terms. You know to have fun but still focus on your job and competing. You know I think it's they do its job of creating healthy environment of competition here. And it's upbeat and it makes it fun to come in every day go go out practice in. You know I can't say enough good things about the way accuse. No he made this program. Well I would Andy Petrie former bills guard now play with the Atlanta Falcons headed to the Super Bowl next week in Houston. Eddie what was it like to close down the Georgia Dome with oh win of that magnitude on Sunday and had to be a pretty cool way to go out Nash at that stadium now. Yet those cool I mean the fans were three years. So loud environment I think I've been in Georgia Dome and I've been here. So who blocked four a lot of excitement or energy to our old game. On Sunday. I think that's that's a good way to go George don't. I've seen a couple of different clues of Arthur Blank dancing. What's the delight to watch him dance in and houses dance moves. They're good he's got. Expect that these new lover and policy. That the president bill. Andy the the championship the NFC championship the Super Bowl just. One of us several reasons that you have to celebrate these days and it was a pretty cool story about the birth of your daughter just what a week or so ago your your wife Katie or part native gave birth to a daughter and what went into labor during the playoff game a week ago is that right. Yeah ever for reported Seattle I don't know. She's heard. We're just before the cancer. You know. Reexamine organize what we're where are that operation. And contact information in case something happened like that. And associate each dot and he didn't tell me being taught in the field. Ultimately you're actually a lot Korea this is at the game. Species if the whole game shoes it's just struggled on she she mated and she. Yet so and then she wanted to go home after which hospital on ovals. Word of the Chinese news. The and then as seen in the questions that you want to traction. And then he went to hospital later and then. Or. Well of a little girl right Lilly username. A congratulations that's got to be pretty cool what a great. Even better than when of these playoff games right I mean it has to be it's even better than all that. Yeah I absolutely it was a mating game and the timing couldn't have been more perfect breasts and you know doubles successfully answered you know or and I imagine what she's gonna go on the labor so. My I think you know Aetna home home game against Seattle really helped us you know everything pretty average for a reason I think federal someplace where industries and. Did did you talk about that like listen this is Sadie listeners that cycle of the labor. During the game homestand last game. She wouldn't shirt I think you're kind of depend on how she progressed through labor you know shoes yet or are you. I think she felt comfortable enough you know we took a couple birth classes really after the birth so I appreciate that could kill and I have to do you know when it was time ago when once it's so. She degrade she is she tough. I can get enough credit for certain what she did. In that I read and be that what just yesterday coach Quinn awarded your wife Katie a game ball or is that right. Yes he did in game over your sister. There were pretty cool what that you really appreciate yesterday it was her time she cannot take it back and you know. Why do you. You know you appreciate but you know here this is a good job. He'd been our number won't spam you belong up. Places are an excellent team. This year around the issue over now it's that. That's pretty cool and now is Katie and your daughter Lily gonna make the trip to Houston next week for the suitable. We are trying to figure it out today. In. We're. We're live on yes. Open all of us that travel plans. Can be limited to accommodate her so you're we're trying to figure that out here today. And be critical of me so grandparents are coming through yeah. Babysitters very tightly. Yeah yeah and aren't nine. But yet we're trying to figure all that logistics that it. Eight years eight seasons in the NFL and you know obviously you'd you started your career in buffalo that the the side trip I guess to Tennessee and now. A couple of years here the Atlanta. I know you're not in the mood to look back here and and reflect a much right now to get ready to play miserable but. Things worked out pretty well for you when you think about what you've done so far in the NFL wouldn't say. He you that's some rough patches in the breeders'. You know I think I think get a chance to come out here as it was a blessing for me. And I give me the chance to prove myself and in our Thomas and be cheaper very welcoming my here. You know just they told me when I got tired of you myself in or don't front him anything more than. And yours being yourself so. I think I think when I first got here that was really cool and really saddens me. You know efforts began when I really start to appreciate that mystery here. And they've just been carried on throughout the I think all the guys are fine in this program. You know it's been. Call or starting your career off here in buffalo playing against the patriots twice a year you think you have obviously it's totally different team. From the last on the pages and suitable what is totally different team since you've played the patriots twice a year but. In other run in the same system so you think you have some extra insight being that you played against them twice a year when you were here. I guess and I liked him I have a good idea as to how they operate you know goes similar. Coaches OG. But personalize your those changes are reaching. Well you know I had another good team and you know play the handsome bunch went out and bought books so. I'm not going to be it's gonna come down the wire and and I'll back and forward. You know.

Our thanks to Andy for joining us and we wish him well they are Twitter poll today what would make the Pro Bowl more watchable game is this week. Did you know that it is this coming Sunday the the Pro Bowl now we've got five Buffalo Bills who are in the game seven and invited total. I got to watch and if so there not what would make you want to make it Mora enjoyable to watch the game is on ESPN. This coming Sunday from Orlando Florida our Twitter poll what my Pro Bowl more watchable 765. Votes and 61%. Say forget about it get rid of it. 19% say the players play any position. 14% say like Roger Goodell participate in the game 6% to move it to mid season. About the player's mind I'm thinking about that what what. My alignment plane running back and quarterback mental for playing quarterback and run around the open. It might be fun to watch it with you would kind of look like a joking when they would. Duke game with it is but it alignment they were they wanna be running backs and wide receivers they always want the ball as those would be. It be cool when those guys and the our receiver running backs and not run it on there and blocked that it be like man. It basically it into what about bullet at the mid season with that network that would be you'd probably see it and back in there now don't get this guy's definitely won't play them right teams wouldn't let them write that. Be better way is that there is there's a need for and alls get rid of it. There's a need for some sort of recognition for these all stars right there have to ask that you dislike everybody it's medianews saying do revision to have a skills competition. Competition and receivers. Skills skills and the act of what's in it and they do have the skills competition.
