Originally going through our cameras I thought it looked and that's so tough with the black pants too. We across them on the last thing all looked kind of 5050 so. It's tough to say about them. Now okay you exert their control. It looks like it's a nondescript York's pass across for not sure if that's Corning or not British it's sitting on top reception on top whose parent. Which looks to be in an effort. You don't to go on. You remember the sabres islanders series opening round at 0706. Or seven as a bit of struggle. They beat him in 445. Maybe even five yeah. But the one game that they lost they thought they its Gordon didn't like Danny was trying to talk and underneath of the goaltenders had an. Connerly you know review was the you can see it. This is it about last night's game like what that happen in a playoff series it's it's happened playoff series in teams event. That that the NHL has a bit of a inexact science and it comes to do the the the puck crossed the line item and you think that they might look to trying to better. Well this morning and continued that might there might be some kind of technology right that's the footpath NFL talked about native chip technology to help on goal line. I don't exactly know they've thought about that in Poland and other brought it up. I mean to put cameras everywhere and they review everything up piling cam but now but it does that if there's a pilot guys that the goal line who that knows the football cross the plane now. I am as a fad you know what I I think they got the calls right. And it was frustrating to watch than the sabres were frustrated I think she would have been funny to see if they ruled a goal of the game. Would have instinct because it would have been players to have someone go back to lock group pelvis ever say that the goal come back out. Although they have asked who they are watching on TV in the locker room what was going on. But I I think right I didn't know that the right guard shot the puck ends up in the net. I never sought cross and they blew the whistle and it looked like. Let them would have been at that point rightly that it made the saves so I didn't have a beef with that and at the end of the game. I could tell I think it did pretty sure it was dead but conclusive video evidence I didn't see it so I don't think the NHL had any choice but. Go with the calls are made on the ice that was noble the end of the game. That the bigger issue was as I said you know the sabres played twenty minutes documents night they got you know smoked pretty good the first forty minutes. Couldn't generate any offense Nelson wasn't playing well. And then all of a sudden they turn that on for twenty minutes Dallas sat back with a one goal lead in the sabres almost I'd it would been a little bit more about performance from the get go would've been Iceland's Biden but or talk about Kane Joseph because came. Had two goals last night he's and he's been great lately he is doing what he's supposed to do. Provide scoring. That speed. The the power in his game he's been behaving himself this season. So he's got fourteen goals in the last 25 games ready pretty much missed stockholder. He didn't score in November his first goal of the season came on December 3 OK so since then he's got fourteen goals. Well I wanna say twelve or thirteen or even strength which is the most even strength goals in the NHL since December 1. He's got one year left on his contract so our position is or act right so this season series and now. He's a five point 25 cap hit now and next year. So they could extend an appearance in extending him as of July 1 they can talk to him in the same way they can talk to Marcus fully know the same they can talk to. Anybody that you can talk to a guy as they entered the final year of the deal and the sabres can talk to like on right heart as well you know about long term deals. And with Cain and maybe he replaces Tyler Ennis long term you know I NS. Who knows where his career is gonna go he's battled injuries so much that may be and this is the guy that is out because he Ian Kane. Why he's got one more year past came polygamy thing about the the salaries. O'Reilly is seven and a half. You can lock that in until 20/20 three or post so six blockade until 20/20 three. Michael and Reinhart what you wanna guess they are. Right like that's net that's. It's kind of tough to even guess what would be how long are they gonna want they want shorter bridge deals to hit another big deal. In the final year of their all right face status as they can get anywhere from six to I mean Michael could get eight right. Easy. Could get. Boy it's tough to try to think it's tough to know. Maybe I animated baby that some of that does play in the term short charter try to determine the price to the deal but you're talking about. The two of them will get good money soon enough. And wrist the lions at five point four U you have some guys are gonna trying get off your books of course but I just wonder if they're they're gonna wanna commit any more than they already are. To Cain he's at five point two. He's gonna certainly wants six right. I would they be looking for and he's got fourteen goals and 25 games. If his production continues I'd be looking for re opposed so gets six and that was kind of like a while nice deal to. Wrist aligning in his dealings are fake a five point four. You get paid if entertain more than you pay arrest this first line and you know like these are tough decisions for the sabres going forward and it's always seemed to me he's 25 so you're giving prime years. Mitt if you are Tim Murray. You've loved this player since his days in juniors he's now producing for your team EP you know you you gave away a lot of pieces to give him to get him. He's producing at a level that it this that's probably where you thought he'd be here maybe above. So in the next month. I wonder if they filled phone call. If they'd. Decide we can trust him long term do we want around this group of players you know Paul has told us I mention this on the shelf also examples popular guy in the room but. You know you don't have to have everybody love everybody is right you know when games. Came to me is the most interesting piece going for the record trade. I goal that I betrayed Reinhart. Lennar if they commit to him it's not going to be a ton of money and you can replace that guy. He's at 315 this year Leonard he's is salary he'll be in our face so I've got to Madonna like 225 OK but trek adamant OK okay that was actual sent I don't captives to to file okay. I drew 25 sorry. You're right I'm strike is based his base salary is actual money amount he's making this year's 315 but you're right but the cap teams like. Okay yeah I went from 13 to 20 to three point one of three base salaries these last three years okay he's he's no longer cheap B they don't want at least three year which again for goalies it's not a lot. Or what but only get a Palin Leonard you know is here to say how or take it off at four and a half that's a lot of money CI but. Start I wouldn't pay my goalie for a half million dollars a year. Glee let's get some kind of you know I don't give me another team up there with a pivotal is it any other guy they got to spend the league has been established Lundqvist. Mean he's human I don't went to the top plants argument. LA LA. All right for. Quick question again various you have to establish has made a lot of money. He's on injured reserve are now Ben Bishop who quickest five point eight bishop we know is a lot a lot of money bishop makes a lot. In on these guys win and then I've won a lot of games. Columbus you know what is Columbus phase. Ski Bobrovsky make this seven point four bullets at them right seven point four of the best are making seven an eight what are you figure to be a letter for a piece your. You're calling you you're number one. I can't make the country I chemical misfit I think to me the bigger thing with Cain is can you fit everything. And I I don't know how the sabres are gonna be able to do that if there in that you know they're they're gonna have guys come off the books in the next couple years but. How long has Bogosian under contract for that's a big deal that's a big cap number. You got wrist the lane in a crystallize and you have a rally have a post so you gonna add cycle you're gonna Ad Reinhardt. I assume they're gonna reduce their defense corps now again that might be all young guys you're gonna be on entry level deals or or or less expensive deals. I just think with Cain chairman I would think if I'm Evander Kane I'm looking for at least six if I keep score like this. How to make that work with all the other contracts that I got to hand out and other moves I wanna make. Working for the sabres is that they're probably teams that would take him off their draft board you know figuratively. They'd say like not eating not even gonna call not not uninterested yeah Lucas security to make stem movie of the trust him. And the sabres. Needed closest to what do they should trust him is is debatable couple goalies don't nick four point three. Jonathan Byrd yea four point one OK again online are looking for at least that a lot of letters probably asking for at least four million and a goal for now I would. So you know you gonna want to Jack up this cap number twice. Twice as much she's a cute too. Two QQ five. Rights of the space that would be doubled his cap number as these players Mark Jones makes three. As these players get older and Ike when Reinhard need raises and if you're gonna keep fully know he's gonna get a raise. Bureau considers a large Larson's are both our phase I just either got to find some money to spend on defense like to me that's what it comes down to his. If I can trade came for someone on defense. That's why Matt that's rumbled for because I need to flip my deaf little bit. And I've gotten the Lander coming up I've actually got a couple wingers coming up and on defense you know I've got my young players but. There was a time where it has been reported the sabres were shopping him and his value was zero. There's just no way it's still zero you score fourteen goals and 45 games. If at the deadline he's got. A month for a seventeen goals and that's where this discussion is he's finally doing what you try for him to do you storing on a team that don't. The most offensively strong team in the league. Obviously he is scoring but. I just on how you make if you get to big contract on the chart you make all this work there and you have big holes on defense yet the big. They don't spend any money on their defense really. Mean Bogosian makes a lot in congress the likely to find a way to get rid of that and spend their money elsewhere and whoever might be again McKay doesn't make a ton of money which is amazing and of Cooley here next year he's not gonna cost you a lot the deal they have McCabe on his incredible. Teacher. Number he's a top two defenseman right now. What do you make it. One point something for your top pairing date yet prick he made the cant believe he signed it kind of money. He should talk to his agent at. The underpaid right now. 030515. Bobbie in the fall on one point six for the next three year or else it's pure this year and two more one point six. The Jake no I can't while don't don't tell him that call us he should be calling his agent right now. That's that's the way under. Fractal which Franzen makes 3.3 judge a Georgia at the the other contracts or just makes three point nine McCain's 16 for the next two years after this year thank you very much for signing that deal. Bobby go ahead. My instant when you guys talk business but I got I'd wanna ask questions. I'm winning if you guys heard anything from pole or anybody else. And how the players relate to bios how and where they like him or not I need to. Around the one of the trial radio stations and they were saying it. But the that the victim. Babcock. Get everything that you cannot have these players and they seemed to know how to get everything they have to give in this once you got to comment on it thanks very much. And against that some guys like him and some guys don't adamant against even in Detroit some guys that like Mike Babcock. Is I'm pretty sure Bobby that standard operating procedure a bitch of their guys that locker who believe in bowels of the system. And love them and very happy with the roles they're probably other guys in the room I don't think he knows what he's doing and that might bring up the they might quipped through the same things that you his fans and we do on the show like. Why hasn't this gotten while I was and Michael starting over time. Why it was in this guy and the guys why you do in this with this gold how come you broke peppers the line and McKay I'm sure other guys in that room that have the same questions and doubts that we would. I think that's pretty much standard in sports I don't think you're ever gonna get. I'm sure there are guys in new England and aren't big fans of Bill Belichick you can respect them those damning elect the guy. So I'm I'm sure there are guys that room that aren't sold on them bows that's how it works I'm. On that to their guys in Toronto that maybe. Babcock robs rubs the wrong way. But you don't play for the guy that's you can pay to play I don't necessarily worry as much I'd worry about whether bows mullah. Knows what he's doing is making right decisions I don't need everybody in the room to be a fan of his I just in my coat to make the right decisions and do what he needs to do to win hockey games. I'm not as concerned about whether guys love him hate him or not. And Scotty Bowman won a whole bunch cups lot of guys hated his guts. 8030550. Join us 88550. To 550 Joseph and Connecticut you're on WGR go right ahead. Hey I was got a call and get angry about how we're talking about trading Evander Kane. But when you guys started talking about the salary and made start to make a little bit more sense. The reason I don't want to trade him but you guys remember the days of common bill Roy eight Connolly. We were dying for power forward. So long on the scene and now architect we finally have them and for years audit and keeps talking about trading again. Marvin the reasoning is that the traders talked about initially is because of what happened off the ice. Right there precedent nobody nobody would nobody would have called say don't trade Evander Kane if we had this discussion seven months ago. Right jump. I mean I I I always have thought his work acting alone. Make him as he's making one million ordinance Stafford was making. Well I mean we're not. Right what what part of the player on the ice I mean I loved Blair is gaming is in. Not like I said that the sabres finally have the player that they probably thought they acquire other it was bad last year but right now he's playing. If he's he's very good it's not just skate in the zone and ripped a shot from anywhere which are still often does but last night is there's a flash of the speed the power. And all the things he can do and there or is the reports they're trying to trade him because of obviously the off white stuff and the off ice stuff while in all things with. Legal world might have gone away for now that doesn't mean that your completely out of the woods and it doesn't mean that you necessarily. I I don't know I wonder how he fits in with team which was definitely a problem in Winnipeg and you know done. I'm not secure tell ya that I know anything. That sources telling me this it's just. If there was talk about it before and Marie couldn't do it because there was no value on now there's value in if you really gave thought to it. I don't think it and they get to work too hard to see how they could get their it would become we have too much money up front and too much talent up front and we are dead. On the Blue Line and we need something back there so someone called. And offered you an a level or. B plus level defensive prospect it's in their system. I wonder if the sabres would do it to try and get. Better back there Joseph I think that's it for me Joseph what Jeremy just mentioned at the end there that's the point there's. You what you said is right. Right for years we've been waiting for some power forward to develop who's not just the fore check and a grinder a guy who can actually put the puck in the net and that's cane four months ago they were talking with just releasing them brat just caught him but he's scoring now Russia is why it's appealing your like wait we traded for god is Corey scoring and you're talking about getting rid of a Joseph for me the the the point is which Jeremy said there's an overall product there's an entire roster looking at not just a vendor kaine and his spot on the roster. But it is the forwards it is defense that is the goal is there is a salary cap you have some big contracts on your roster now you're up against the cap right now you're gonna have some some contracts down the road they're gonna be big. With cycle with Reinhart and after that Philly contract with McCabe expires he's gonna make more than a million something dollars. You're gonna wanna bring in an established veteran I would think NHL defenseman which is gonna cost you a few million and the caps. To go up so you'll you'll you'll probably continue to get room but they're up against the right now in collective they've got I wonder if if this year. Even in a year where they are not really competitive team for the playoffs at this point beat Murray has to do shuffling. Often down with Rochester you wonder if this is the kind of year that makes him think I don't ever want to be this tight to it again. You know I I wanna have moved even Laura playoff team I've got to be Smart and I've got to be flexible on the capsule I don't have to send down. Justin Bailey for penal twelve hours just to call back because an NHL they doesn't accrue or whatever so when he right canes playing great and and it's it's a good thing to see affected Maria identified him as this kind of player feed come here and got a complete bust unions are to wonder about your GM what he sees that. In all what did you see in the sky it's the he's no good he's not worth the price. He looks like these were the price of the trade right about now Joseph thank you for the call on Andrea between on and came from let me he he said a couple of tweets one. Cain for defenseman did we burn a good defenseman and a couple of prospects for him makes no sense no we didn't. We're gonna just be okay are no sense trading Cain glad GMT and held on gave up a ton to get him no you didn't. You gave up okay did we burn a good defenseman know you'd traded away defenseman that nobody wanna hear anymore that wasn't playing well. And was a shell of his rookie year I was under big long contract he traded him for another defenseman that fits almost all lets himself yes you're trading your underwhelming defenseman. With a big contract for their underwhelming defenseman with a big contracts are you didn't give up that. Nobody cared that Drew Stafford left town. A couple of prospects army has not really done much in Winnipeg the goal he scored against the sabres when he was in town was his first goal like 1213 fourteen games. I don't honestly know what Brendan LeMieux is doing. But he wasn't gonna sign here if it comes down to as a reason for LeMieux there's a reason they traded him he wasn't gonna sign here they didn't give up a lot Iran and the problems with Brent in the news agent who thought he should already be up in the NHL. And they thought you know what this is a headache and they moved on from so they didn't let me give up time in terms of guys that would have been here. Core parts going forward Myers no Stafford no army or there are waiting for for his development it didn't come to their liking. And LeMieux might not have been here at all and that's also gonna give up picture I think. If they wanna trade him and they have a trade that they think it's a good trade. If you're GM's thinking I can to keep up too much to get them like you're losing already you can hang onto again because a what you paid. That's that's the same thing as the lender discussion that's I think that's also to a degree like Paul gos steady and in Nashville. They traded a first round pick for Paul Austin and every sign up for four years and you feel like part of its because like well I gotta make sure that I aid. I feel like I got more from that first round pick like Winnipeg re signs Stafford. A to consider even with Stafford does going forward. It's not a part of that trade sign is an unrestricted free agent this if you were mad about the sabres get numerous Stafford they could just resigning he brought him back but. You know. They didn't want that I'm entered that many people one of that either so I don't want the price of what it cost to get came. To determine whether or not I'm gonna trade him for something else and again like we're not even hearing rumors right now there were rumors and reports of rumblings months ago. And now he's playing great. Zoellick of those rumors and reports were real. Now's the time to take it seriously. 803055. And join us 888550. Q five feet to drop all hang on. We get back Chris Brown's gonna join us from mobile with the latest on the bills on the senior ball. On a couple other bills issues including Stefan divorce future which she was talking about pro ball we also the wireline some 45 did that guy called to we get other people. The call will be exciting it's like I saw when I got my voice if you wanna call if not be either way. I've got. Awesome awesome stats and numbers. On the patriots and falcons I'm gonna keep bang in the table and tell you. The falcons are everybody is every bit as good as New England in this title duke the one line. The defense. All the number one scoring defense not all they all yeah well. You see right through. So I'm not become try to. Reveal to you that this number one scoring defense is a lie okay I you you you don't to convince me but I or join us and I'm gonna convince you. Before go to break let's give out another a question in our Golden Nugget trivia contest question number 2 for this morning speaking of doing them how many Super Bowls as Tom Brady went. And I haven't got hurt whatever. How receivables that Tom Brady when that's question number two club another question coming up in the 8 o'clock hour about an hour from now as we play Golden Nugget trivia remember when all the questions are done. Give its call hopefully you'll get the answers correctly you'll be our winner in Golden Nugget trivia and have a chance at 5500. Dollars cash. In our Hatcher kept. He's got stars take in more more drop backs that three divide this up that job so on the kind of released me now to do more on the field stuff which is Austin. About two months out right now so despondent you better off you more than anything I'm more more coverages more. And the film language verbiage as much that and evidence. Amenities use anytime any kid can play for the home team is doing come true of course and parks and all the experience. Players come to buffalo and he partisans that's that you you actually isn't. That's now which Jack Kelly courtesy of Josh Reed WI VBTV. Chad down Senior Bowl this week going through well interviews with the teams because he's coming off an ACL injury unable to play in the game which is tomorrow. Honor AT&T hotline. Still down in mobile been covering the Senior Bowl this week for Buffalo Bills that come with their league journalist. Chris brown and he's with a right now Chris the all important well first off good morning Chris are you. More anger and the all important question is how much Reese's pieces stuff to do walk away with. I'm an old so. The family happy. At all and I am so can't stash it well kids that super next hour Alina. I might actually getting recognized that money that's all. Some Chip Kelly let's start there there are number things when asked about but Chad Kelly what what's the what are you hearing what are scouts talking about with Chad Kelly because. Two years ago had a really good year comes back this past season injury shortened Ole miss this season wasn't as good. As it was the year before. In some off field issues what would what's the word on Chad Kelly. I don't think there's been much down here. To be quite our cities could participate. Yeah I hear him. You giant Q. Insert himself as much as the basically. Catching passes from quarter external warm up. In her beauty guy out there are standing at the spot they had to rodeo and catch the ball sort that. I think he felt it was important to be here or the interview process probably more than anything else. A lot of the NFL teams value that I'm down here is it's really their first one on one exposure to the players that they get and I'm sure a lot of people wanna sit him down and talk to him and find out what's going on on the last year and a half with some of the off the field transgressions. And see if they can either eight. Chalked the mop suit just use. And you know people that they a lot of people would say they probably made double there. Earlier mistakes. Probably between the ages seventeen and wanting to. And Serbia chuck it up to that are is there a pattern of stuff that's. Maybe a little bit greater concern. I also people are gonna wanna get the 411 on his knee injury shelf. I think it's an information collecting session here. That old man and a lead a lot of teams decide. Where he sits in the draft in terms of the parade. Chris any thought on. Whether his last name. And his uncle is would be a factor in the bills deciding whether or not to bring in Jack Kelly because. Of Jim because of the name because of Jim's career. Expectations from bill's fans might be. Unrealistic for this kid because of that last name. Yes I think it's certainly something to consider. You know I guess if you believe that players at your rating can handle something like that. Than you pull the trigger but I don't think there's any question that that would put significantly more pressure on him especially at that position. Knowing there has been one. That's so true franchise. Quarterback at the position it is uncle playing. So you throw that on opposite and that I think you know you come back to the off the field. Track record that he got and I think a lot of I think a lot of people at least. On the bill staff would probably ask if we put him in his home town atmosphere. Knowing the recent history. Are we setting him up to fail because. You know whether you're talking about hangers or people that. Feel they deserve something from him because now he made it to the well they're right back yard that he's in his backyard. That complicate the issue further hurt him that it harder or an. I mean I think it would be a plot that you have family are out there. I think we recognize securely family it's a strong one and one that protects at all. We'd like to think it is you know. I keep the outside influences from you know compromising what he's trying to do it to build successful NFL career. But you have to believe those kind of questions are going to be asked not despite a bill is better. Chris Brown this year on the AT&T hot blindly journalists from Buffalo Bills dot com Alex in Amherst you're on W jar with Crisco right ahead. How big a good Michael Richards thanks for Colin. I come I know what you guys gonna Iowa talk about it I'm curious if you'll why. In the rat. You think you will be chosen. The likelihood that Doug Whitley is. I mean. No we got a big decision to make it quarterback you know the next couple months here and are we. Besides you move from odd. Com we really don't pay a reliable replacement I will it. And you know I used to play with Jerry Kelly actually you're four all and you always you know vet that. You didn't know or or but it also often I would say horrible determination and I saw them in Sugar Bowl performance. I believe it was a topic here but the previous year. And yeah of the kind of argued. I think it's something that that. Bop all bills. I have in quite some time. Let me hop in in an end and the first point appreciate your call Alex Chris. In terms of mocks you don't typically see more than a three round mock now anyway but. The terms of what we're hearing about Jack Kelley usually gets mentioned like a fourth fifth round terror threat to the that injuries got to make it tough. The fear hours ago. You have records you know Crocker to purposes. Gonna keep him. Behind. The eight ball in terms of being able to argue anything and become. And beat ambitious. At least at this point. And the only about two months removed from the injury. And I think. You know pearl from everything that I thirties he to date three selector. And that's just at quarterback class that is not all that impressed so. They can take it for what it's worth all you really need is one team that really like some. To go higher we do see quarterback values yet inflated. And I suppose there's something that he could do between now and the time editor have to convince some team that. You know she should be a higher ranked prospect but at this point. 83 years. What we're hearing more and more than anything else. Chris you've been posting daily articles on players that have been pressed at the practices this week. From a bill standpoint from. Positions you think our positions they need to address in the draft. Kenya hook up the two who anybody capture higher standout this week in areas of what might be need for the bills. Yeah I like some couple receivers here I'd like a couple of corners here like a all the states each year. So I think those surpluses as far as the bill you know I think the state Nicholas this year is outstanding you know cheaply helped by. A lot of peculiar eligible that declared you know like Jamar Adams from Alice usually cooker for all our staple editor. Probably gonna go in the first round. Tucker may go on without Jan Adams New York got thirteen so. You know those are two outstanding talents. You know it the bill also maybe had a chance to swing and at least one of those they wanna go that high in the draft state he. But their depth at that position Q and I was convinced of that here this week you know which and seniors that. We're here. You know I really like the Boston College kids on jobs sent out physically the most gifted player here I don't think it's close. And got a good head on his shoulders we have an opportunity to talk to him. For Buffalo Bills that and I really like what I saw her I did stall and it cannot be it games. You know RBC. To know what is instincts aren't everything but his numbers were relatively good to mania three interceptions the last two years. That he was one of the guys that I kind of took a liking to you get to big players here. At the safety position I'm in an upper educated Getty. Not the smoothest aptly put pretty instinctive had an interception yesterday. Yet you cannot cared about all the and flow of this. Now in Atlanta but that's close enough it's better than I would a done. He's 6421. AME it is gigantic and he can move. And that really liked what I saw from him through the course of the week and receiver position he got some guys that upsides. And and up route running prowess. Where I think that you're coming in at least play a role for you. I really like the east Carolina kid Nate Jones it'd double moved yesterday where he looked at king almost on the wallet. And Raquel drills and I just thought that. His route running. Precision was very impressive ability to Washington kids yet a lot of but you get a really nice job like you most fundamentally sound players. Here this week at the senior ball. I just wonder how well he can hold up physically. And I think he would maxed out physically would work he can beat you know he's listed at 622 Christine but there's there's not a lot of mock salon that brain. And so I think he probably slot guy. I don't think you can handle it outside of when battle on out there who wore dark. Part it's secure tickets insistence separation because he's so precise routes. It that you put together and actually this week as well which got ball players here judge alternative having insisted earlier in the week. But you know which its export. Little say in a 190 pound produced checked radius is Gordon's. He was mirrored ball out of the air yesterday which clearly that they get a week. An irregular drill Putin out jumping people for the football region behind him they can't fault with one hand and so you start on his athleticism. There's a couple other players to let you know they don't let guys that stuck out from the from the east Carolina. Chris you're there this week when Doug Whaley spoken I wanted to ask you when it with when it comes to defense of players with Sean McDermott coming in. But likely switch in terms of the scheme on the defense to the bills have to use the draft in part to get players that rule specifically fit would Sean McDermott wants to do on defense. Yeah I would I would think that there's an element to that that holds true I mean you know Doug has shed debt. Coach McDermott told him just as good football players and will sit them into our scheme and that's admirable. But I think in an ideal world that you can find a guy that is a perfect trip what you'd like to run you're gonna take it got. You know she's a highly rated prospect that so while I think. You know that premise is a nice one to have. If you could find a bit you're gonna kind of set. Now that's not to say that they can't make it work I mean it's totally. McDermott has a history of helping guys with skill sets that may not be perfect for exactly the way you want honesty he's been known to adjust it. Just hit the player more than the other way around you not in a quote we're paying around all night you know just his team to hit the player but. I think rocket and purposes you can find it you're gonna put an end there I don't think that's. I don't think that any more the case that is. A bit weak side linebacker position and forgery very do you really a lot of cover ground dealt they're gonna need linebackers election. Cover Brad alcohol and got to do a lot of stuff. At the second level and off the ball. So. That you're gonna need in a little lighter quicker linebackers that can really move. Chris one last thing since you brought up weak side linebacker. Is that guy on the roster if not is is that something Zach brown could do if they were to resign him. Yeah I think that you're number one target if you wanna find somebody that was on the roster this year can handle that role he would be the guy. Mean let's not effectively or there was a guy that ran down. Julian Edelman for 82 yards and tackle in the yard line on the Politico are all back apparel started at game I think that's the only indication any on film. Picture here he handle that job. How much is in the cost but you know it is certainly in tackles and you know go to the global altered this week so. Now he's got it probably it's not money because too much money you may have to let him go. But that's the kind of skills that you're looking for support that position did anybody else on our roster right now that fits that bill.

During the my favorite Taylor premier also brought to buy miracle made Buffalo's craft your destination all right so. Did the falcons have a song when they were dancing the dirty bird. They thought a song for that had to be what it was that you would too legit to quit back in the day to way back when. I want some more falcons anthems in the next eight days Braden at my request for you. I want to begins Harris too legit to quit I think the falcons had a pardon that. Nancy hours from Atlanta right. And the dirty bird when they're doing that dance Jamaal Anderson Dan Reeves they had to do it to a song they had to have an of a dirty bird teams are anyway. This is. Two minutes on the falcons and why they're being slapped on don't. Underestimate Atlanta OK I know I'm trying to find you the theme song from the dirty bird and affect so New England one of the things you're hearing in this Super Bowl is that it's the number one scoring offense. Against the number one scoring defense the patriots didn't patriots gave up 250 points this season. Not a lot second place was to 92 to New England is wanted to buy a lot in there. And when we gave up 250 points this season Atlanta gave up 406. Which is the most of any playoff team this year 406. Yeah well they scored thirty whatever games so they they did. However. You are a sump an hour about these two defense is. We pointed out yesterday I'm I had to look at like. All the quarterback Jeff falcons have played I played Brees twice Winston twice Newton twice. Just over the the course of the season they played murderer's row of quarterbacks. Well the patriots had the easiest schedules. In the league him. Here's one illustration for it is from the big lead dog dock in the patriot to understood. You you do with his what you want Qaeda common opponents yeah. There were 50 okay between Arkin got together and Arizona Denver LA San Francisco and Seattle. These two teams played five common opponents in the regular season. New England in those five games gave up 82 points Atlanta gave up 88. 82. To 88 close yeah. Both teams went four and one against those common opponents ball through beaten by Seattle. In the regular season and then Atlanta beat Seattle in the playoffs it goes farther. This from football perspective dot com they look at how the patriots have the number one scoring defense in the leak. And there's a couple things that helped them on their offense doesn't turn the ball over Vilma eleven turnovers. But. There's another indicator here. Every single quarterback they played. When you take the average like net yards per attempt. They did a little better against the patriots. And they did the rest of league. How is that possible the average quarterback performing against New England was uttered against them Ryan Fitzpatrick was better against the patriots than anybody else. Russell Wilson was better against the patriots and anybody else Carson Palmer Andy Dalton. Ryan can help slightly better on. They're neck guards are seldom are they moving the ball which is not getting in touch they're not getting touchdown healthy and their drive good and third downs they were good in the red zone they played an easy schedule. It's not to say that the agency offense is terrible but depending on you know which website you like maybe you'll like DV Elway Michael lovable fans that are age didn't like the second level stat or whatever like the VOA. They're sixteenth. Got the number one scoring defense in the league is sixteenth in TV away when accounting for the scheduled they play so. The main reason Alex talk about this because if New England wins which they certainly could their favor. Will hear a lot about well there it is the defense beats offense again. They don't have the best defense in the league it's night there and they're not even close the top defense in the league they'd give the number one scoring defense what they shut Atlanta down if they hold them like F fourteen points seventeen points people are gonna talk about our great defense they they well. And the defense will had a great game via the about ritzy it will not even be close to be like an all time great ravens when they went to the first reported they're not even the best defense in the NFL this year the patriots nevermind like historically good one. Just a hater. And Nikki and and on this day this day among all others happy seventeenth anniversary. New England Patriots hiring Bill Belichick.
