It's Mike show this guy's a real jerk and a Bulldog I am I'm 38 attentive. Or CDs and whack job on WG. Tonight. Joining us now. Star of the president's draft. And co host of the Coke employee showed 937 the fan in Pittsburgh which this time. Andrew and I do have to think about it I know which one is yours. And as because have been seeing it on ESPN on the credits last couple days. Well I'm just honored number one to be on your show and I am also. Humbled by the idea that former bears and lions quarterback Erik Kramer is now doing updates for you guys. I've got their different Derek Derek Kramer yes. But it sounded like Eric and out kind of got my antenna that would have been really cool Erik Kramer you know updated the last quote the last lions play off when. Mike Mike under sold a little bit because is our remember I think you also deserve. Much like trumpets executive producer for reviews Celebrity Apprentice I think you deserve like an executive producer of the president's draft is I think that was your arm that was your baby. You walked in you one day and you said something in him who just we have an open threatened presidents and it was awesome. I think I was my views that they were you telling a story about yourself and a white leather jacket with a Mohawk. Insurer that that happened yet thanks for me to predict indeed other. Leather jacket and an Italian weddings as soon as stories go on and I forever. I do find myself thinking of you whenever I have soon. Duke which I still do but obviously the out. And referral pony your best so Andrew show a clip even with his voice on it has been airing on sports and this week. As Ben Roethlisberger told view. Van. He is considering these pondering his future. I'm not sure he used the word retirement but he certainly didn't shut the door on that. And you had many conversations with Roethlisberger what do you think he was really telling. I think it's just kicked off. I think he's whatnot steam I do. I do think that. He is all been to the idea work walking away from football for. You know he's he's done I could see him being one of these. I don't know Calvin Johnson or Jerry Sanders is quite that but somebody that leaves with more luck in the tank. But I think more than anything else might there are some things that are going on with this team that are bothering him. And I don't they'll be doing it for leopard steak or he's threatening them but I think he's just worn out by some of the shenanigans that have gone on here. Yeah that would have been my guesses is you better you better do something. Whether it's whether that's personnel might even bought quick contract but it is it sounds to me like journalists. The fix this idea then why I only got a couple of years left and I don't wanna keep losing one step short of where we while ago. I think he's crypto that he's embarrassed. I think you look in that locker room and at a guy that's gonna be 35. In two years he looks that. You know it's audio brown I think chief among these young not younger players as you've been in the league for seven years. I did you look at some of that personalities. And even their attitudes towards the other shops. And just like. I don't belong here well I'm at and light on the arm I've got three kids. I played for thirteen years I've got two rings I'm go to the hall of fame. I don't fit in with these guys anymore and I think there's a real culture shift that's gone on the here and now that is the elder statesman. And I don't think he fit in anymore and I don't think he lights the mood in that locker room. You sound like you feel like he has a good argument. I feel like this Mike there's a coach here that I respect a lot in adding Mike Tomlin for. Ranking coaches based on justice. Read the day having a hundred. Is five wins in fifty losses. That that self evident that that's a pretty good coach. But they they not good at is managing. Some of the bigger personalities on his team like Antonio Brown. Lou I think then in the news. I think one of the I had point he he made in that. Retirement speech if you wanna call that is you've got a guy here that pretty much hit carte Blanche to do whatever you want because he's a star player. And the only time the coaches ever put this put down its when he was personally embarrassed and that FaceBook like video that got the first time around. Has. You know acted immature leave or has. You know what his teammates down he doesn't always act like a throw in even though he's immense talent. I think it's great dot band he knows what is Super Bowl winning player looks like. And I think right now he's just really frustrated by his star wide receiver. Well I wonder if they can find their way to some Connolly come to Jesus meeting or something because we keep I mean. Roethlisberger. I can appreciate you know your life changing. You know all of our lives that it has changed you know assistance to many acres have gone on assuming it happens and your priorities change but. I mean for for him to be upset with guys being young and loose in the league seems a little bull duplicitous to me. Well. This way Chris. Antonio around multiple times this year or excessive celebration penalties. Because either wanted which work or shy rader do it every wanted to. After touchdowns and a couple of times. It let the other team getting short field and scoring touchdowns. Like probably never did anything about it. In fact every time he was asked about it a press conference or some kind of Q&A function and usually chided or reprimanded the reporter for even bringing it up to me and I think it fostering bad environment for brow and where he could do it seems that werder you know what detriment to the team. In the coats just allowed for it to happen and and I think that's where bands. Frustration comes and the I decrypt the fact that in the game on Sunday DeAngelo Williams scored a touchdown. In there and got a Antonio Brown because he piloting it. If he didn't get the ball the end zone that shouldn't be like yeah. Hit the bat that cannot be job. Not that important earlier acted after it sorely guy. After they score a touchdown to keep themselves. In the game. The Coke should have at some point gotten through the brown didn't hit it that doesn't work that I don't know but. I think he feels. That the coaching staff. And let him down in a lot of ways. Injure -- pony with us former coworker bars and current post of the Coke and pony show with run Coke right Andrew. Yeah it got columnist and include as a lot has changed I'm Merrill Streep now. Actually that was a big big. War that we had an impact. And in this eight year since I left you got that come around on Merrill's street was at the Golden Globes speech. Our own. No it once and it was. They wanna Florence Foster Jenkins either the movie that you won or just at some point the lightbulb went on for me that she was a good actress. Like because how hard can you really work its Ainge is not. Mean certainly point whether it's it's Brady. But I think about it. At that time the pipes movies I was watching when I made a comment I acted in broad spectrum it's. I. He didn't. End there was no speed and show there to talk the other veteran that the. Rex. Thank goodness. Episode. So back to this unfortunately I would I was thinking of oil in Europe with about the Steelers which is probably something I'll regret. Does so I agree with the would you tweeted before their game in Kansas City that they have to win in Kansas City for this to be a good season I like that kind of you know being. And there it was actually to me how the wild card games went all the teams that one really needed to win. Given what they were to call a good season and so. Here the Steelers they lose in New England in the AFC championship it's as. Once I competitive is that a close game. And I can feel like a good year for them but does all this other stuff. Change that all the stuff you you're describing here in the last ten minutes change that Tom to you or defense. Well I think wars and been me. I think this team. I don't I think I have more at least in Pittsburgh got more respect for what New England has been able to view. And a lot of other people in part of the reason why I stayed at a news. If you had Steelers like Hines Ward and Chris Hoke and I. Not so much room that I can talk a Lily sport. Jane scarier you big guy come out and and it say that they were cheated out of two trips Super Bowl because of spike and those kind of strong comments. Reds and they feed into what the fans think. Up the patriot way but. You know back to your back your point about what how they interviewing us. I I think there're I think they're looking for a source scapegoats that they are looking at either Tomlin or you know the offense only had. What if you look at acute touchdowns in the last eight quarters in this was supposed to be one of the best offenses in the entire league. So Todd Haley is under fire the defense of coordinators getting absolutely killed. For their game plan and that AFC championship so and plot to FaceBook why didn't Joey Porter gets arrested because he's. Squabbling without surge in people owl with the night after they beat the dolphins and Mike Tomlin needed to address all of that. They compare at all make of this Mike what they lost last year in the second round to Denver. And they didn't have Antonio round as you've got knocked out of Cincinnati wild card game. In lady on valve had injured his knee earlier in the year they lost that game because of torturing running back FitzGerald Toussaint fumbled the ball. And don't quite know what Bill Buckner animist towards him for that there was a while you know what can we expect he was a third stringer. We put to guide a bad situation to begin with better luck next year. I just don't get that sense yet for people I think they're still looking to play blame game. And I thought if they went to New England played a competitive game even if that might staying in her advantages accepted as. You know it AFC runner up seats and that's pretty good. But I I don't get that impression right now I think fans are actually serious. So from year what do you think happens it does Tomlin or does the organization. Respect what Roethlisberger. Is saying maybe even feel like it's justified in right. That's in cages need to be rattled like today did they get it together there or. You know do you think it is sort of hold key comps down. It feels better after a couple of weeks go by in the game console crash. Chris I think the interesting thing will be your big years in colonial round. The biggest wide receiver contract. Ever. Which. It's a possibility here he might yet. They've got Calvin Johnson money but I think he wants with Larry FitzGerald hundred million dollar money. And he's got one year left on a contract but they played the salary cap game with a so much. That he's only do is make three million dollars next year he won't play for that amount to hold out. So they've got a real salt fork in a row situation here and Antonio Brown what do they do if they make up the highest paid player they're basically. Reinforcing his bad behavior and saying the stats on the steps. We're just paying you for being a productive dot which I think will rub them the wrong way I don't that you want that I think that appreciates and respects how would brown is. But he thinks that they're neat to be some tough love with him that if you give them a hundred million dollars I don't know I do expression expressing. That kind top lob I think overall he comes back. I don't think there's any question about it I think battle play next year. But I do think they'll draft a quarterback Chris I think that they'll use. I don't know if it's the thirtieth pick in the draft although where they'll end up taking back our. I could see that as early as the second round kind of pulling a page out of new England's playbook like when they pick Ryan mallet or even more recently would drop below. In grooming a guide to possibly be banned successor. Interpol pony with us into what I think happens here or should happen here. With the bills yeah. I gotta be honest with you guys well I was really disappointed by the McDermott hire who knows. With these guys you know you that you never know who. We're the coordinator is that got end up being. The catalyst. And the guy that are ultimately turns it around Mike I've I've seen and heard you make the point just because a guy. What's a winning coach somewhere else it the second time around the third time around deep in the these retreads. There's just not a lot we used George steeper for example if a guy OK here is when you suitable to go to Carolina he's won in fifteen. I think the thing that bugs me most honestly what to Doug Whaley stuff. I I just don't get how he went it did it is just a third coaching hire. Yes yes and it's. If you disposed to think. And I I don't know all the truth but you're supposed to think that this is the first time. At least going into it that he was the leader this is the first time he would be the leader. The first time with doctor doron it was more Russ Brandon and in last year was tortured to cool but I felt like at that McDermott. Unveiling sort of speak that it was also the owner that many owners who introduced examined. You know talks about a faith based winner feel like the military who picked his guy again. Yeah I guess if you're gonna get rid of the quarterback if you're gonna get rid of the head coach. Why is that general manager immune to this game rebuild what if you're gonna blow it up. You're leaving to me like one relic. Still left hanging there and I don't know it doesn't really. I mean you brought him any didn't trust him to call all the shots. Now all of a sudden you feel like okay we're gonna give it to him and finally let him do his job. I don't get that. It's hard to get. If it might be 111. Idea I mean I don't know this is the case or not but I've I've bought it instead it. A few different times that. The Google is might have felt like. The would be out at sea. Without without a whale and if they clean house but they don't have there's an old president I mean they they wanna be I think they want to distance themselves. From Russ Brandon the president of both the sabres and bills. Because of howled that appears to have gone or really how it's gone but for appearances sake I feet. They feel like they want in separate from the football decision making. And without Doug Whaley there they'd be like conducting their coach search and GM search without someone like. An old Bill Polian helping member Tom Coughlin. And that might have been daunting to them. Yeah but don't other I mean our other teams seem to find a way to do it all the time. I mean to me you don't get you don't become a billionaire by accident. In the big guided me a lot of good. Decisions in his life and maybe it was an in you know not a sports. But I would think that Kerry Wood. Would at least have enough people or would be able to put himself in touch with the right people to hire like it's our football and and it that would even like the whole setup that you've got now in Jacksonville. Well you've got like this old patriarchy in Auckland image DN invent morality maybe that ultimately ends up being. Too many cooks in the kitchen for them but. I just I never know what to think with buffalo. You know I just. Did the quarterback is obviously the key to me I do think that they made the right decision moving on from Tyrod Taylor but they do I don't. If they do that right right media an elective surgery is there any what I don't. I'm confused by that whole. By the whole thing it's seems to me like Whaley really didn't want Tyrod Taylor yeah I agree that was more correct right thing I agree so you'd think he'd want a fresh start there are. It will lead draft a quarterback in the first round. Does. It's just that I have more time. You know I would think about that like. Derived self preservation apply if I hire a new coach and I bring in a rookie quarterback did that by need more time today I mean I'm gonna get another. Orange boy what are my chances what are the chances that the bill's draft. Say to Shawn Watson any quarterback out and play them. And the guy looks so good that were not talking about this in the year we were what are the chances of that deck press god as the is the standard you almost need to meet. Like when's when's doesn't meet that standard Wentz was lucky to start against the browns in two resold to the first or always good and then stopped thinking about it. And so the whole year goes by that good yet Vijay easier. And so what is illegal pay if they if if what they think the west bullfight you if you criticize them so like. That that's that that's too low of a standard here big they would need to draft somebody. And have the rookie. Playing for buffalo. Outperform that. I think to alleviate that issue. Right I mean that he's gotten a big big group with its with its last Regina. That happened in nine or eight Nate wasn't good enough if you go the first year coach and a rookie quarterback. Chances are good like maybe that's the high end of the bar that that that that the Hyde. And expectations for them. Next year so it's just it's in perpetuity just seems like this is just over and over and over again it just it's a vicious cycle. If you're fired assistant Beckett the ball rolling deadly fire the head coach and then you spend an offseason wondering who's really calling the shots for the bill so. It's a shame I wish I had an answer but I don't need literally stink. Or did you go to Tony Romo well I hate to wait that sounds. I don't wanna put a band aid on the situation that the debt that can be. Might be a one year ignited that in yet he would make the playoffs for the first time this century but now they get the real legitimate long term solution so. I would probably trap the quarterback and keep my fingers crossed in fact I to have more than one quarterback that's probably what I would do. Go to first pick dot com. And trade down constantly and just pray that that's realistic sort of come home with a it's one your thirty guys and you have no idea Arnold likely in this house and consistently. If I want that question yet which was dark. First pick dot com is the new flavor of the of the month and here as a toward a fair happening on his side of the room between first pit dot com. But today we are for you may have been trapped Mike. You were let somebody used my Mel Cooper died. Hi I do I am that I do love drafts. I love the I'd give it what I. What I get bothered by is all the phone me knowledge. People who don't even they can't. Start to tell you. Exactly why. Certain ideas are better than other idea is players and schemes. And then like it it's all just comes out in the wash in this sport very few players make a big difference. But when you listen to draft talk it's often about the most arcane things that really won't matter in the bigger picture at all. Think about all the times of any bills picked it's ever happened during this playoff drought. All the details that you were bothered with it. So what you look back on you go why did I even consider any of these things. So it's the sort of a fall mean not everybody is is just speaking I don't mean that. But generally it's that sound. Of this the responsibly all the stuff was important forty times and bench press figures and all list. We're really only a few players make a real difference in this sport and if we sort of stopped then acknowledge that we wouldn't bother with any of it. You know the an algorithm on a website or I can figure out all these different Shreve that are made often all of us felt like in a moment that I've sort of present got not watch it come time though don't. I don't think I've changed much. I wonder if typical separate. Accuse accuse sports teams. Do they look at say the sabres. Leadership or you've got Mercury who has subscribed. To new. Methods to believe in analytical advantages to a point to a really has. Sort do you beat your saint Marie got two point. Only to a point. I think I mean I still I think he still mostly a hockey scout you know it. What would you say of of men in his profession it's even more on the cutting edge the most. In this particular way I'm not sure I would say so like I think he get news a modicum of respect. Two way and he's aware he's impressed me as being aware of certain metrics but he is not living by them. I was only I was only wondering if they look at. What happened work for than in terms. There are hockey head you know like. Like to Marie in it that has any effect on the way that they run their football team or vice Versa topping worked in hockey but they try to apply it to football they're pretty neat spot where they own two teams. It different sports I think about that sometimes the coolest do they borrow ideas. From the sabres and bills. I wish I wish it were true we're short shorn off if you like to take that question as I think I don't wanna say it I think that both teams. You know I I don't think that either one I got to beat her awkwardness and that it either team really has has earned. Any status. And is an analytics. Forced to be reckoned with about that it's pretty spoke pretty soft by me but let's arm feeling right now and Andrew so great to talk to again thanks. You guys thank you iPod. Interpol pony 937 the fan in Pittsburgh Paul Hamilton next from Dallas much open mobile blog WGR. This is Cole Hamels CNN reporting. It's sunny out and the bears are fluffy just how floppy remains to be seen. Behind me is the miracle of her. Snow and ice storm will fly overhead. Delivering a baby panda. Let me see you might get a look at what's going on. Okay okay okay. Around hundred. Who'd done WG ER. Sports Radio 550. All right welcome back we've got about ten minutes here with our poll Hamilton who joins us live from Dallas sabres and stars tonight hi Paul. Guys or good has this been a pretty cool week with the parents around is there but a lot to see him like. Well you you know I don't go on the excursions obviously with them but I it's fun to see an especially after the type of when they got in Nashville. And to see the the. Parents come down to the hallway after the players you know with the players coming out and everybody having a good time and how excited they work. And how excited the players were in the locker room to have that type of game in front of their parents. They were really excited about I mean that would have been excited anyway with the way they want. But to do it in front of their parents. It certainly was a big excellent and exciting night for them. All 73 in one since our goal. But once they hear through the wrist fit whatever was we talked about that and you were. And somewhat skeptical of what his intentions may have been but the next day he struck a very serious tone talking about. We don't expectations. And and what they should be all about. Is it is going. Sitting seventh in once and her do you think maybe he like he rattled the right cages. Who knows I mean Andy because the tantrum me through was in front two teammates so really was not in front of his teammates or for his teammates benefit. They were in and other Ramones Cameron art right now but Atlanta with a little photo about it obviously it. Heard about it but if he wanted to really do it. You know it may maker sent a message to his teammates. Could walk across the hall about it they're cute start throwing stuff in that room. And you know woken them up there but. Gross I mean who knows what kind of effect it would have had a member that was part of it if it wasn't it's part of a maturing process for him. I mean last year he was a happy go lucky kid and this year he's. All business. Mean and he. He doesn't kid around at all really especially when the media is there I think he probably goes up immediately but in front of the media he skulls he's all business he doesn't kid around he doesn't smile much. And maybe it's it's basically business we're losing and I don't like it. I really liked that goal not just because it was obviously great and a game winner but it was you know a little bit needed I think Paul Etsy for myself. Having watched Jack and racing games I was sure I was ready for that. Yeah Lindy Ruff like that goal through I mean he talked about it today the creativity. It showed in. He said not many people can score that goal and he called Michael very special player will blow by saying to say you can fly to my. I'm a Dallas team and he talked about the elite young players that are big difference makers in this league and that's what you expect any you know why Michael didn't have a great gains and but in the end. He comes out with two goals and that's what talent does. And Mike I addiction drives me crazy at that it to sit there. Mean Lindy Ruff talked today about and we'll we'll hear on the pregame show we he's dressed in two big men because he thinks they need to be bigger and stronger he's taken still a lot of his lineup. And could just it it drives me crazy to hear that that. Are here comes Richie MacKenzie two big guys because they're gonna go out hit people they're gonna knock the sabers around a little bit. And they seem to play better when they do that. And there are particular out of the of the lineup and takes skill lot of lineup to accomplish that and I don't know I just don't see how that helps the game. A great. Deficit a robber earlier dallas' one of the few teams that can't released late last year more than this year they were funding there one more but. They were so talented and you know. It's kind of typical hockey that coach whoever he is would find. Cause to reduce that are mitigate all you get any sense that Lindy is in trouble there you you mentioned you spoke them. And he he seemed pretty relaxed and me not happy. With where his team is in the standings he thinks they played better lately I mean. This Jim they'll wanna blame he did not address the goaltending on Lindy Ruff. Mean that goaltending is as bad as it gets in the National Hockey League and it killed them in the playoffs last year and they did nothing to change it. I mean you don't have to have the best goal legally reject a competent goaltending and they don't even have that. And I don't know do you blame that on Monday rough there as one Iraq keeps and we got to get a safe. He said the last two games you play pretty well we got a savior there we probably when the games. I mean the one thing he did say as he goes we got a lot of early chances in the last game and we kept shooting wide so that was one thing he said. But yet if if management and wants to blame Lindy Ruff for not addressing the goaltenders them expire. How are the sabres going at this game man not tonight same lineup and everything. No it's gonna be different. Carry able be back in for the laureate part of it is parents' trip. When I asked you know once a day off and then you have the they're all star break elect kind of with a surprise Leno wasn't in the lineup and and I ask files more why and he said well both have parents here and it's apparent trip and he goes number one number two. If I don't start him here I don't wanna see him sit for two weeks and not get a start for two weeks. Which is about what it would wind up so he thought you know to put him in here and same thing to Gloria got the game in national party that was probably does McCloud there was the most fighting majors in the NHL. Leading get up their very much against him a fully a lot of fighting human part of it was able that bothers here so. The laureate played one game and will carrier's gonna play this one's not Casey Nelson's not complain either but he does not have a parent with them. Just looking up at the TV is you're talking and I see with channel two on their doing some story on. Houston sort of a Super Bowl we were all there are the last time we're a Super Bowl was in Houston they had overhead shot a replica. Sky shot of the stadium next to the old astrodome. And we all go to the astrodome and Paul were you Wear this for that part of the week. I didn't go to the astrodome Miller known Mel I didn't care if I was at the astrodome with my dad before close so I didn't get there. Might have sat well Thurmond's relatives because it I've bought a ticket from the bills allotment and he was. Like hitters three rows of fuhrman's role says my dad over there I don't think that that was kind of the key cabinet fun with the. A bills game in in Houston all okay you're talking about Paul yeah right now bill I don't that we went to the astrodome I did. You did Earl Campbell was on stage there was a thing where they had certain where there was just Oilers greats of football greats onstage and overseeing Earl Campbell. On stage of the that was at the astronaut I remember going to something. In auditoriums. And whatever it be wrong but acidic senator like arena type thing I don't think I was asked I think I've I've combined to two things may be added because there was another thing. I guess and a little bit on the nuance they move too because. I got beyoncé and actually say something Jeremy White because him and act like a very infatuated with the Johnson of performing that Super Bowl so. I went to the Aerosmith beyoncé pressed off as remember that the market determined and W. Nice you know that's still hiding somewhere in here yeah it today. Or not going this year ago right right middle Knoll. Right Melanie had trouble pull oil pulls right up the road if you wanted to set the all star break maybe just a sneak down. But maybe not probably not. A poll that we got to do is talk today have a good game tonight. OK guys they care Paul Hamilton from Dallas sabres in stars sabres at 49 points. Is. We've talked about old but today 49 point still old. Six way tie for an hour at 1111. Through sixteen in the east. And I don't think more there are a bear is a for app Tony games. In the league tonight Detroit does not play. Seoul at worst of buffalo loses sight the beat still tied with Detroit in last place in the division here's where they'll be. That's the worst case scenario tonight but I think everybody else that's around 49 points or ask for an appointed bill. A win win might feel good for fans who have. Just said that the seas in the standings kind of an arms went this year I'm not sure.
