Thanks for having me on guys like to see here what to do an outsider you just. Still snowing most known grouse or not yet not a bump in the road for us. Guys us natives and Donald deathly efforts. No use it you know like. That it got to get out enemy and embrace it. You do yes which this particular this particular and after a few decades. Steve tasker with a as the phone lines open 8030550. Tool free 1888550. To 550. Wanna ask about the Pro Bowl Euro area of expertise that your long and distinguished to receive. But we also wanted to ask you about the championship games this past weekend with a bit of a let down and in both games now a lot of drama meter game yeah usually give you some pretty good. Paul Gibson and those but not so this week both home team just took it to the visitors and I think you saw a little bit of what he got a little bit. Oh green Bay's problems and they were little bit exposed by. You know hard scrabble way they got to the playoffs coming back haven't run the tables and Aaron Rodgers called a shot in the knee injuries in that depleted secondary. According to a place hike. Atlanta has got the number one offense and then in the Lehman that you're just gonna get lit up and if you can't keep up. Couple mistakes I mean one turnover one missed field goal you're done and that's really what it turned into. Gain it is seem like. And Altman is elected and that often means they can do any night I'd never seen. Guys consistently throughout the course four quarters you why don't. Fall except you saw the second game two and I think that. Greg. The patriots are doing the same thing yeah I mean I that's exactly the way we you know we rolled and our first Super Bowl you know just like the falcons are definitely. You roll in there with the number one offense and they got to figure out weighted it and that's really that's I think the focus of this game for them. Patriots is going to be. Finally keep them off it's off the scoreboard and the communities they don't. Need to run it they got guys run an all over the field is not like they've got. You know Julio Jones a bunch of others they've got a bunch of guys and play. So we'll see it'll be exe. Or Kristi Chester you're welcome to join the conversation 8030550. Or toll free 1888550. To 550 wanna talk tomorrow about this matchup but you just brought up. Bill's history that's we we rolled into with the famous 51 to three game over the raiders are answerable point five. It's been speculated you were there that maybe that the nature that win the 51 to three. Blowout win over the raiders and the fact that there was you know it was Sunday decided no we can be team that that's somehow contributed to the bill's performance answerable points I. Maybe a little bit I think it had more to do with how well the giants played I mean they had a great defensive team they're fully guys you know that were really good players a good team and they. And we played in six weeks before barely beat them. We were you know pretty much that team and and that gave them a good look at what we can do what and how we were gonna do and at least they kept us off the board that first game to me. We scored seventeen. The first time we played in only nineteen next time but they played really good complementary football that game and they were able to do and that's why you know you gotta think you know maybe. You know Bill Belichick and the and the patriots you're going to be able to do then I think you're looking at this game. Patriots are harder to be our team to score on. And they're gonna score mean there you know I think the weak link in the entire. Scenario of all four sides of the ball offense and defense of the Patriots offense and defense for the falcons I I suspect the falcons defense. More more than any others so it'll be uninteresting game in the clinching point but no question. The the falcons gonna have to beat the patriots left handed because that's what Bill Belichick force should do. And he said the game assignments and yet there's no we can between and it's just that one year the four at data first when there so how far was it for you guys we dissent and would be trio when he was talking about right now he's just trying to figure out all the distant schools going to game tickets and everything all of that stuff how hard was it for use apostle to have to you know do it in the same week it's impossible. It's an enormous distraction. It's an enormous. Burden. It's. Hugely important for all the players because they got families of people that one comedian again you know everybody from their past from way back and it was. It's called for tickets trying to get hold of just any summer I'm just trying to say hey congratulations. On an aspirin. You torn a million different directions and and think about it like this is Tuesday yesterday. The team was on its way in the you know Tampa Bay year we're gonna we're already there. And then your on the phone back home trying to get your wives and mr. Wilson Ralph did a really nice job he brought an entire. Chartered jet just for the players' families wives. And aged he's picked him up in buffalo brought the brought everybody again just on its when they got there on Thursday and like Andy. My son Luke. Was born. Ten days before. So ports are of course I know before the tip pitch a game like yours like less than two weeks old when they got on the plane. To come down and down there you know and and this Bill Polian all of that they were they jumped out said listen I need to. You know listening here's my problem what can it do for me in and we asked about this in this picture so my pediatrician. Sat next to my wife. We brought his pediatrician and his wife sit next to Sarah who had Fabian literally baby in arms at that tactic on the flight down that route got a receipts and you know subsequently my pediatrician who's a local guy here buffalo still still differently. You know he sees like. Ten kids. Over the weekend the super. You know because they're stuck here so he's like his patient I was eight and a half South Africa and and of subsequently. Michael while. He wit all four Super Bowl as a guest the team because it turned into such a you know a good idea. You know sewed it. That's what that stuff happens and I can feel for Indy and took my wife you know Sarah. Literally. Was a travel agent for my family her family. Everybody and she was obviously and I'm busy. And she she did it. For all foreseeable service while it's a crush you can't get on top. He's got you know how how many tickets we get. How many are they together are my ticket together or your ticket together can I treat you for your ticket to be needed if it's never ending its every like. 26 hours to do it before we start practicing for the game. I don't want to dwell on the past but thanks one more Super Bowl history yeah question. I recall I'm over at me and I can tell me this that I'm that I'm a but I do recall by the time you guys made it to the fourth suitable listening to Marvin and Bill Polian talked about how you know what we tried it this way and we las are headed this way we lost. Talking about logistics let's just go and play right by the fourth time your like it doesn't matter today you know when you travel where you stage when you'd really you know it was all about just go and play right now is that the feeling but it's certainly the two we. Can between helps you get all that you install a game plan and you hone it down on the second week in and you put in May be some wrinkles or whatever you can all traveling ticket stuff done on the first week you practice at home. You can reach out to all your friends and family can touch base with everybody got touched base with we throw him out of the picture for the week of the Super Bowl and then. It's not gonna arch it it it doesn't usually get it they understand I mean money say it only got to do is it was my best opportunity. And they'll like oh OK Jessica you know there there like that and so you still play that card that were attacked on our way now. No but it that extra week is invaluable to these guys. And I think it. You know for us to go force you always think maybe there's some. Magic. Formula there's no magic form economical way in which is the use your team has some confidence. Prepares well she came in England plays she. Emotionally what these guys going through because you. It's like yours to stream and different things like I can be that guy this as a holidays are like you dream about all the these Detroit plays that you are making. But she's still got a week and a half before you go out there and play you know when they're gonna travel down what this weekend or Monday or something my OK did you say that oath yet early next week of the right you know severely go down there be down there all week to a different media obligations so much distraction but emotionally how do you handle all that stuff and then going to the games. Yes hard beat it it's you got to handle and and I think the patriots have an enormous advantage in this they've been there you know. It's a seventh time in the past fifteen years they got a number of guys who have been their reform. Atlanta. No no body and so there but it's a small leak. Most of the guys are looking at Dan Quinn and he's been and he's what twice with the Seahawks so. He knows. He can help some decent things to help he won one lost one. So they'll be able to sort through some things and help their players but really it's all about each guy individually and all the stuff. The media. Problem the media burden and obligations are that they're an obligation they're not that fun. It's a pain. It's worse now them and it's it's way worse it got worse while I was playing you could see it get worse if it went from being. OK I got you know it's kind of fun little carnival atmosphere is just is meet people they go in now it's a circus. They got fans there and they got you know it's it's. It's an event. That you have to be a part of the nature of the focus and it's and it's it's pretty exhausting. Parties awestruck and a Steve tasker who's been it's an old spend a pro bowls and let's talk about the Super Bowl game which Steve tasker you're welcome to join us 8030550. Toll free 1888550. To 550. Why do you say that Atlanta's defense is the weakest link of the four major units got. I think so I mean certainly maybe not statistically speaking but I think they're the ones that that are gonna have their own I mean you saw what the patriots did. Against. The Pittsburgh Steelers. I mean it guys running all over the field you know that when you get into that game against Tom Brady and Josh McDaniels Bill Belichick they're gonna have a plan now is gonna have a really good plan against you. Offensively. They're gonna have a plan B that's really good as well. So if you can get a handle on what they're doing you're gonna have to your gonna have to change even though your have a success is not the last you're gonna have to make adjustments during the game. The Pittsburgh Steelers and you know they were and they've Mike Tomlin that staff has taken a lot of heat over given up that many points Tom Brady in those guys in that game. I can see it you know everybody's gonna do that when you when you have a poor game. For not just staying in. The limitation on them the coaching staffs are a lot of were like and and and for good reason. This week. We've got a good defensive scheme we just need to play it better. There's a lot to be said for that but. In its hard to be community and the patriots have been so successful for so long because that's who they are they're changing. Often it's they're changing defense week to week to week to week they're everything they do is predicated on what you do. And that's why they almost had not for long time they had this mystique about them that. You know they were almost clairvoyant in their ability to stay ahead of and it's there and that's because of their philosophy that's what they do and they. He even did art to date. Study film and implement what they learn better than any team and that's why they're so successful for so and so consistently. You'd think. That you'd think that the U Lannan defense is the weakest link of the four major groups because of the use elements out of the ball I think is the most critical. You know Atlanta's gonna hang some points on these guys maybe not third maybe up 44. I you know they're gonna score 2835. It's. Great he's got that number to mean that's what they're and they hope 44 on the Steelers. That's what they're you know they're gonna come out with a plan that can put some points on the board and limit your opportunities so that's your. I think that's that's where that the great unknown lies or is this Atlanta defense going to be. Hold down to number get enough stops. So that Matt Ryan is going to be OK with twenty. Or thirty points. That's the big question the disease are two teams that can light it up and make place so. Yeah and I think the youth and the inexperience in the big game that man hats. Is is going to be the big question mark we spent a lot of time on the show yesterday or Steve talking about Chris Hogan speaking. Lot of people want to relate that to us. The bills what what did you make it and I Nazi expect that I mean he's good player bill's love him don't think the bills didn't like him when they had when he laughed. They want him he would have been a big part of what they did here's well. But the money was not in the cards for this franchise be able to pay at that point in history for that I you know I mean for Chris. Now patriots. And that's that goes back to their way of doing business as well they. If they ranked 53 guys on their roster one through 53 and they don't get outside that envelope. You know JD Collins scored a Cleveland as in a trade because he was gonna step outside that emblematic great player in his salary he had a salary envelope. And but they're receiving corps. Was within that envelope and they needed another guy they had Chris Hoke has been the type of guy they like not because he's. Sammy Watkins or AJ green or Julio Jones but because he fits their Mullen they're the kind of guy he's a Smart player. He's a personal guy. He pick a pick up the offense he steady Emmys. EU he had some of those intangible elements in his game that they like and certainly they knew. When you would if you were gonna pick a guy that would fit in that group with settlement and Amendola. And those guys Chris Hogan. And. Carbon copy their mobile is different than most seen and you just named him ever cattlemen Hammond Dolan now Chris Hogan Wes Welker before that they've almost embedded. But tight for a prototype receiver that works for them over the last. Ten years it has diluted laughs that's Sammy Watkins order of Beckham's Noah and and really wants to know what happens that way they do let me but they're got their number one is a guy's not in their gronkowski. Yeah they're number one is whoever's best player his. That's their number one guy and it changes week to week so that's that's why you need a guy that if Chris Hogan they trust Chris Hogan as well as they trust. Julian Edelman and I Amendola so that's what makes their team different. And they'll focus on a guy in a game and and it it didn't happen that. They said hey Chris Hope is going to be the guy this week what happened was. Chris Hovan was the guy that came open in island and they have all those guys that attack at defense with equal ability equal skill sets. Equals trust. From Brady. And Heath Brady picked the spot that's why the marquee guy there's got pulled the trigger. And dominate the point yesterday that. Hogan had a big game huge game Sunday but he beat to your point could be somebody else against Atlanta and absolutely it will be competitive and it's probably an amenity we need to set. Who do you shut down or we watch an erroneous busy yesterday some of these ESP and talk shows it was this morning NFL network this morning. I don't appearance at a mere mention of the guys in the office look at this and the and the headline on an NFL network was. Out of the falcon stopped Chris Hogan. Really does it really feel that they have a tape there that's a rabbit hole you're never gonna. That you can't go down that rabbit hole you've got to be your defending Tom Brady. And that's work starts and hands. Because it doesn't matter if if you take away everybody except one guy doesn't matter who will be if they can show what with a waterborne lineup he's gonna hit him. And that's just that's where it is I think it all boils down to Tom men and that's and nobody really has to defend their passing game in the pocket not in the second nobody's found accommodations. They protected me they've got a good offensive line they you know they have placed election with the run game with play action game with. With screens with quick release timing routes three step drops. No step drops. With in a wide wide you know with the timing routes with pick plays you know. If you start pressured and they just get rid of the ball a little bit faster in the trying to be too that what you've got and you've got to anticipate that. And that's really really difficult today. By the way we have three good tournaments right now which aired on. Lewis and white and Lewis and wedded guys that can come out of back so themselves and I think that's passed and help my and they all do not everything. At least acceptable when maybe nothing great bodily day they can pass protect they can catch the ball and they can give you enough in the run game with shift Eunice and all that too so. They're all good enough that everything so that they don't don't get caught in a mismatch in any point in time and that's you know that's where a defense as well gosh we cuts but this guys in the game which we can send somebody Adam he can be able hold up protection. There's nobody like that in that backfield they can all pass protect. They can all hate it take hand offs they can all catch the ball so you know. It's never the is never anything different for needed to lock in. Got a call your Korea from a talent Clarence go ahead Tom welcome to on the air this. Are there and don't it are our talking had a couple days ago about two or. You know civil probe match. And I mentioned it. But these teams were a mirror image. Sort of disagree. Or ask Steve. If Pete tanks. C. Patriots are or are better than an hour the falcons. Business is a prediction. Laura find out but yeah I would say it. It's hard to say because that falcons look so good offensively. And they have looked good in big moments. They were so good on third down last week against the Green Bay Packers. I think the key may be for the falcons. How good they're going to be on first and second down because I've seen them come through time and time and time again on third down third and 53630. And three. And they throw the football they don't run the football on third down very much that arrives that I saw at least against the Packers. But then again the Packers were the 31 ranked pass defense in the league that's what you do against him so. I think the I think. You know given the history it's easy to look back to see what the patriots been so good for so long here you may. You know their franchise might be better but this particular version of each teams spread each franchise in the east teams. Falcons may have a better team and we're gonna find out but. I was like an offensive team and you can he could keep off the board for awhile but they've got guys tonight and I think Matt Ryan from what I saw even just in one game against the Green Bay Packers. That guy knows how to read a defense and threw footballs the open guy and that's the way Tom Brady has done it for 1516 years so I think. I think the quarterbacks are both playing at a high level I think it's going to be fun to watch but I don't know why I think that's why they got to play this game if you want me to predict I'm it's hard to predict. And take somebody other than the patriots for me because I've seen him do this so many times in the falcons haven't seen them do this very much. Now that you look at and you look at Matt Ryan. Probably going to be league MVP he's played this year. A lot of people listening. This game if he goes ire has a great game beat the patriots. Does that limit him as one of the. I mean you had to be people who attempt that conclusion I think this one game is just one game. It should be in a certainly. This a game where he's gonna have a ton of attention but you look at the run up to this game easily easily and had a man he's played really really well. So. Yeah while it is going to be. You know hurt him a little bit I don't think he can define him by this game. Certainly he's in the game against a team that is a rainy only great in big moments patriots if he beats them. How much did it help Eli Manning to beat him twice and I. Yes it did it but I think for hurt them I think hey hey he's just another long list of guys Tom babies Brady's beaten psyche and game more than he'll lose. The call here with Steve tasker in studio where does John call it from Rochester go ahead John welcome. Pasty. You know I was stricken about their first tell Super Bowl. You'll regret it black the plot worked which you early in the game. I was that guy I used to be that guy. Or the phenomenal what but you know. I all of the mis read it to what you could do under seal you don't expect you know special teams but also you play wide receiver did really well there. And I recall. It would have been a year. Alleged actually. We want to Pittsburgh I think for a playoff game Bruce got sick in that type of things death or lost at the end. You're at the end of the year. You're playing tailback for awhile we can clear to me treated running Ricky great app. Well I wasn't playing really tailback how's come I took a couple of handoff she especially that Pittsburgh game you're talking about I ran the ball probably. I don't know six or seven times maybe. Maybe I outfielder and a route out and around your coming in motion taken and often well and had actually statistic is Alex Van Pelt was the quarterback when Jim lost a series or two. Went in and and gossip gossip medication. He knew we lost him for a series or two and and he came back out Alex Van Pelt came in played extremely well force. We phenomenal stiglitz and what I don't know about phenomenal but I appreciate and I had a moment or two. You kind of Uga Uga played you know well right back after watching you do that a couple times put. You don't really think the awful low voter you would let. The last game in Green Bay. I would also like but what they're gonna put it all these positions. With I did my beer I hit my. Apologize John I appreciate that nori and it needs two game got thrown out of the got you know robbed of seeing me play but. Over out I mean the yet your your you've got to be about two Martinis into a three martini lunch they say and it was a phenomenal. Office of weapon because I was I was I had some moments but I and I had some fun it was good. But I'm a good demon and a lot of guys. It is a little bit like the patriots are you can plug a lot of guys into the spot I was in the it would have been released XSY at a hall of fame quarterback who like me gave me a lot chances by two football and I was appreciative of it don't insult our listeners Steve. My job I'm an assault on this list that. But yeah obviously the obvious and one Merc offer Steve before we get to a break Franken west Seneca frank. Oh. What what you'd probably I thought so that it how much cervical all I'm not but. If you and your bit for speeding out of fuel if they have members that are off you are slightly pitcher Ryan IR. I'll Beatles and separatists the sidelines. Who's there or are we make the trip were no wouldn't in the playoffs JJ watt was. People for the last opt in eagle or totally blot out who's in the box when you think it. It would be solved now on the spot or not people. Org a former. It's essentially image that Franken out of the way you speak about this Don but. For most teams soldier and every guy it's different certainly for quarterbacks they can help but if here's the thing if if you're on IR. Your off the field and practice. So your body even you know. Your your dot and army so you really can it contribute. And it's different and it's not as good even to have you on the field for that now a guy like JJ one I know this he wasn't even allowed to be on the sidelines from them most of the football season we had them late in the year. Only then was he allowed even to stand for three hours we can actually be on the sidelines at the medical staff including even actually be there. Those differ for every every player and also traveling to and from games. It's. It's not. You know guys like that are needed now there on the sideline at home game they can be engaged if they just came out of the game yes certainly you can contribute for a guy like Derek Karr. He was off the field and off the practice field for couple weeks before the games were being played so perhaps in there it would just be is a cheerleader he would he be able to really. Contribute as much you might think you would in normal circumstances now if you would have been aired a guy like they're Carpio distraction to the quarterback that's in the game. May be I mean I think Derek tech kind of guy. At the quarterback. Yeah you'd have to really EE it's it's hard to say I mean Derek not a guy who'd be a distraction wanna be a distraction but certainly guys gonna come and start Chiming in the quarterback's ear he might be. Like I said he had a game plan nicely might just beast you know the say the wrong things you know so it. It's it's never a good idea. It looks good for your fans at home senior all that together believe they are and if you're in the if you're in the press box believe that that the first place these guys wanna be. Is on the field with their helmet on. But for the injured players. The game moves so fast through the season and you're doing so many things differently every week and game playing except once you're out of it for weaker to. It ain't just plug in and help out you gotta get back up to speed mentally that's why those guys are really in the loop on the side. Talking to Steve tasker about the super boy wanna talk about the Pro Bowl Steve has some experience in that their realm as well. We'll do that we returned to John Murphy show from one bills drive. On Buffalo Bills three. It. John Murphy she. John Murphy Donald Jones and our guest Steve tasker in studio what that's for the next couple miniature welcome to join us at. 80305 if you're tool free 1888552. By fifty. You get up and walking with there's a thing in the floor argument again that chair over. All the ethnic group in this rapidly as for what it. Alfred take my glasses off the suit which he talked a lot about the Super Bowl we've we we're gonna talk in a minute to two with the Chris Brown coming up at 2 o'clock about the the Senior Bowl and ought to have got to keep it straight now. Attempt talk to the Pro Bowl and who better than a guy who went seven times. To the approval. It was MVP one of those I deserved to go for five of those times to why has come what you say while one time I got voted in the Pro Bowl. And I had played a game down a special teams all season it was like 1985. To play wide receiver like John from. Just minutes yet so you refuse the trip. No I didn't recruit direct I would. Add that was. It was a long time ago but it was there and approvals were all fun. And this is this the stuff they're seen on TV is that some of the plays I mean when I was MVP obviously three which is kind of cool because. It was. The year I got to play. For the staff was there's like thirteen of us after thirteen to eleven or twelve bills out there and Don Shula was the coaching staff from the tall it's. Himself a so you know we don't know all the bills guys show up down there with a big. Big ball I hate in our stomach for Don Shula and their whole staff as the week goes on ID Ali he's pretty cool you know I like him and I you know kind of after as arbitrage up the animosity towards him you know over the next couple years when he was still there he didn't he Italy coach and 23 years after that it. You find out. Why was so successful. And admirable it approach when it doubt about it. It's two great dude he got a great head grade CSS humor. Handle players great didn't take himself for or anything too seriously but there was some serious stuff to be taken you know I mean it. He just had a great demeanor as head coach. And after himself laugh at us you know bust chops he was just I really down to earth guy and I was you know. Not that I was all that shocked. Because she knew he was he had had some some laudable thing to get it and having coach Hugh. And be on your team for a minute it was pretty cool and I got to admit and even now I'd have. He knows a lot a lot of respect and affection for him before that rule. This seems like today's approval a lot of guys are pulling out of the game just don't wanna play in the I don't know why anybody would ever play that game. I mean come on it's a football it's a football game and go out there are not easy it's really has. When I played it was more than just scrimmage to it was a game. I'm not saying we were not there with you all guns blazing eleven guys went out there with years expectation you're gonna play some football. And then if the game was close in the fourth quarter it was a real game. And it was no holds barred and there were guys breaking rules and come and yeah and you know there was you compared it you know parameters here you can't Russia. Fifth guy or six guys you can't. You know can't plagued you can't blame it. Whatever you can't there's a lot of things could do defensively and offensively. And that would all went out to win and they you know there's a couple of down time when the game the ref Rees after I actually practice they start making play calls like that yet. They may call was he they've brought an extra defender. Yeah that that that I you know so they. All that stuff so it was it was a real. And it was you know he's got I mean I broke a finger in the game. Guys get hurt in the game of Internet than catastrophic but still meanwhile which do they need there's no easy answer what happened to that money wise it's it is kind of joking now. Well. You're not making a lot of money via. And it is dangerous and you're not playing for anything you win that's great yeah a little bit more money. It was same and you were there yet it was different. Athletes different mindset whatever. Please listen man you got these guys are the particular the best players in Tom it was this way when Dan Marino Dan Marino never played he played in was just saying you know what I got. I better go play one more time he did when he was a rookie years taking it to the Super Bowl that he never he gotten voted in every year and never played and then later in his career. And I don't play when he actually it would would Shula and those guys have played in that when they were the coaching staff. There are bringing it. Means you can you make it your JJ watt 800 million dollars. Why would you go out there and risk the ability to bring that in. Over something that you'll get a championship you'll get you know you're you get into the team there it is that's it that your best accomplishment. Win in the game is means absolutely could not mean it could not possibly be the last. And that's why these guys like you know what I'm. Now I've got the honor and I'd like not to play. I think there needs to be an answer when I mean it may make it a pro am golf thing or something you know make it capture make it a meet and greet you know the highest bidders can go out and spend a week. Every day at the beach with all these guys or. You go to Disney World or. Go down to spend a week and private resort with just the Pro Bowl players and some fans are. Think. So well let's let's start Twitter poll today Steve what would make the Pro Bowl more watchable we put it out there for fans account. Come up with some solutions 850 votes and so far. 60% say just have it. Yet that they need to replace it with something better. Anderson not it. You know get some creative people together and and replaced with something better I mean I've I've told I've I've been on a soapbox for a long time this would be the perfect. Outlet for plays like NFL city. You know where there's an event and there's a destination owned by the NFL like you know give amnesty and Juan Puerto Rico they've got they've got. Disney world with the NFL shield on the small stadium they've got hotels. Restaurants. Water parks theme parks golf courses. Everything you know retail outlets everything's down there it's all NFL oriented and you could have alumni. You can have. Current players you have the Pro Bowl players they all everybody goes up goes down there has a week long event filled. Week. For the Pro Bowl and give these guys carte Blanche down there. And and people want it and there's been some quality time with these guys get to know more or at least spend time with them and say hi to him instead of just watch him from the stated that you used to. You know to hang out. That would be a much more attractive. You know venue. And you have these guys got their practice for a week. Play it day in 15% of respondents say Roger Goodell should participate. And now aren't they did get off on any kind of get off indeed an opera I agree. Nobody likes. The disciplinarian nobody likes to guide it has to say no now you can't be that nobody likes the guys as are you did this now I gotta pay the price nobody likes that god you know what. They need. Bat. Because there's a lot of stuff goes on these guys need be called accountable for and if and I'll I'll be the first to admit it was way overboard with deflate gate and Tom Brady no question about it. Should 125000. Dollar fine don't do that again and dot. All that you know federal case that they made out of it is absolutely ridiculous and it's I think it's a function little bit of us in the media. But. It should have been day. 45005. That thanks guys don't do that were written network and change protocols and that in the efficiency tech. Pressure to get that at all it should never gotten to the point work Tom Brady got suspended for four games because the balls were. Under inflated so it's ridiculous. It's ridiculous it's gonna come up again and even if even the even the football people from around the league who don't like the pictures are like rolling their eyes. You know but you know Roger got back in a quarter made it look like. He's 54 game suspension because if he said 25000 dollar raiders had Roger Goodell is. Playing favorites with the patriot you know he got put in the spots give Roger. Donald give them a break it's it's ridiculous. Nobody. Nobody cared about now nobody football cared about flee. I mean but there's some other there's other and there's other issues to mariners absolutely serious issues certainly yet. Certainly it's in the end zone which currently is started out for a list and or that the issue is as old as the game itself. Pasted diplomatic guys for spiking the ball in their head like this is they were revenues. Mean that used to be big deal now it's. You know stick with Antonio Brown mean a all the stuff like and it in. Randy Moss he'll pull it fully take when his pants down in the end zone. You know Billy white shoes Johnson in the funky chicken in the end zone. You know. Otis Taylor and and elbow right to and high stepping through the back is that these are all names from back in the day. All the stuff was has been going on since time memorial to get over you can't do anything stupid Indians. Hug and officials. You know he's can't do it so get over for Greek island. That's that's a little thing. The little things in the Robles now experts who played it's an idea Africa is there any solution to it mean now they got it they they should come up with some something enemy. There's no question that the guys who. Our voted by the player. And the coaches to be the best position during the season. Deserve a patent recognition and some when she performed certainly monies grade it's Oprah put cash is always appropriate right but. Hit it to open it up to the fans and let them participate I'm not even in the podium saint elected the players do something give him something tangible than just chat. To say hey you made the Pro Bowl you verses. And for me should be the coach and players voting. That should be something special for the players send them someplace give them something. A game is a little bit it the game. Football doesn't lend itself for an all star game just doesn't it's too physical game is too intricate game it's too choreographed. It it it it needs. So much preparation be done well that it does a disservice to the game itself to have these guys want to play games so he really did come up with something else and I don't know what that is. But you're writing need to be changed. It Steve thanks great to be here it's always fun thanks frantic Steve tasker bills wallop Famer from the NFL on CBS seven times. In the probable right seventh yes that. And MVP the pro wolf back in 1993 pretty amazed. Not that I back immortal moment John Murphy show from one bills drive on Buffalo Bills radio. John Murphy she. Welcome back to the show the John Murphy show presented by no coach ever been battled Jones and again our thanks to C to ask Rupert. Joining us is regular weekly visit he made a lot of sense about global. Look at our portable at 60% say you'll it. All right I'm I'm I'm I'm more of that and Steve I think eloquently and that's simply. Talk about you know have something else that summed it bring players close the fans. Someplace nice and warm so players want ago have a little TV award show needed there now. Golf skills up like that I think there's something be done right. He can take the hole and if so honors awards show and everything down to wherever that entire event is doing all at same time you know that the fans come. They can watch the award shows that if you'll notice though all in the same area and typical edit the problem is it's a TV show that the game itself. And I've looked at ratings I don't really care that much of a ratings but I'm sure it gets. Decent ratings in the be reluctant to you know you know the NFL is welcomes the ratings. You know and replace it. Don't want illusory but I think if you had something like a golf tournament or something like that Steve was talking about. People are gonna watch this because they wanna see. You know they wanna seated favorite guys played awesome of them are good some himself. You know but it's funny to watch the Gaza side there's guys so good in football he's such an athlete on the football field. He Kenny hit this little ball you know some people watched as for that reason just left it open right with the mind that. I don't know what of the approval ratings are I'll I know as I've never watched him nor do I know anybody who says. I wanna watch the pro to you know where this week tennis is not something people. That I know to me and to watts I would I would think that the ratings it has been decent but not crazy enough to say. We have to keep this because rapists. Are gonna actually play in the game the Pro Bowl rosters finalized yesterday in. There are all on their way to Orlando Florida to work to get ready for the game so and maybe we'll talk a little bit more about it. May who we want we are to talk about the Senior Bowl Werman Chris Brown is an east anybody go like this from Mobile, Alabama and a couple of minutes. Earlier in the day Chris talked with bills general manager Doug Whaley at the Senior Bowl. And talked about they have the job for the scouting staff for the player personnel department. What their role is at the Senior Bowl in mobile this week here's would Doug Whaley had to say. A lot of interest has to do with beating these players an interview in this the first time we can really get our hands on them per say yes and to talk to me 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 speak 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 what we always try to put as much effort in that everybody would 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 that's a good barometer. It's as good barometer is they get in terms of football as they make their way towards the draft if you combine coming up and about a month. Com banks differently on the that goes horribly. Oh places and major and weigh in. And you know talk to players for little fifteen minute. A periods in that's about it really stopped clock stuff what stuff but this relies on a better yet and that's. This has to be in and Doug is talk to me about it reports of the much better valuation tool is he just said Chris. Especially for the smaller school guys for the guys who need to show that they can play against big school competition. I think the perception of you know this guy comes from a small school. Is now gone out the window you know they did these guys an opportunity com and play against the best seniors from the bigger schools. And it gives you a chance to improve your draft stock you know what this guidance is doing here in. You know at his school or it Wanda belated even division three. Now this guys at the biggest level he can be at right now and he's getting it done you know so it it really helps those guys. And if you're a guy who was one at one of those big schools in one of these guys comes in they can hurt your your drafts you know so. You don't wanna be that guy who's on the other side of things but. I think it's agrees it's a great way for these scouts to be able to see these guys Presley from the smaller schools. Compete against then that the big time talent and also get these guys in the classrooms get them in an interview process. And see what they're all about. We're gonna break and talk more about the Senior Bowl when we return it's going on this week in Mobile, Alabama. Army Chris Brown bill since at a Buffalo Bills that come as they're covering it for us and we'll go to Chris life after the top of the hour break so come back for more. John Murphy show from one bills drive this is Buffalo Bills Brady.
