What is the vibe in the lottery talked to so your bills teammates about the new coaching change in how. Things got to the point where you have it have to have a new coach we what's the vibe and what you guys talk about your conversations. About the coaching staff and the change it happened and what your role wasn't it. You can maybe talk about this. You know. Which is because they are creating an approach that total. In. You know older. Is trying to feel like you know what they're going to do you know. That's maybe what that that could you know you can't really need to right now so alone kind of kind of have a respectively. In QB so what decision they probably can. And go from there. The what they eat there was a quote attributed you'd Stephon none nfl.com. About free agency and you said I wanna be wanna wherever I go what do you have in mind there's that. Wanted financially year earned you know it was a dead and emotion of feeling what what are you looking for when you hit the free agent market in March. As. So like. But every single leader most. You do more appreciate you nonsense so. Electro. No orders liberators is buffalo. You know the team really wants to prove create and and according to go to saint. You know reversing losses so. The support. Situated. While you're not trouble with your wife because we did kind of pro about three of them but here's step that we got him. We thank you very much for joining us and enjoy the rest your wheat down there in Orlando. About stuff. Stephon Gilmore bills a probable Corbett joining us live on the subway fresh steak outlined subway eat fresh joining us from the Pro Bowl in Orlando Florida where he is getting set to play in his first Pro Bowl game and you you played in a lot of those Stephen. Yeah we all know about the probable temple we talked with Cuba and on Tuesday the different tempo of the game but. As I said to step on if you're out there playing quarterback in note of Beckham's company chip you don't wanna be undressed no matter it's a probable gamer it's a pickup basketball that's right and. They do limit this scheme to those teams are gonna run both defensively and offensively and players you know they're out there they're they're gonna play Harding but. The intensity and then and the aggression. Is the first thing that goes in the year you're out there and when you wanna compete and he can hope. You know as a DB can I hope they throw and a U Wynton you know and let you know or early that kind of thing so I know it is. A glorified scrimmage even if that. Nobody's really trying to compete to win a job nobody trying to compete to. Two win the game even what they're trying to do is compete so they don't get embarrassed right. And once that gets the point where the game gets into the fourth quarter and then it's a close game anything well we are gonna in this then you know than the things do compiled from it and you start seeing guys maybe some tackles on the air force puppet but there are right trying to make some place. But it it. The game is so intense and so. Demanding at at the regular season level in the playoff level. It's. It's dangerous you know and you don't wanna be the guy. That gets caught unaware so they are gonna go out there they're gonna play hard they're gonna compete hard. But you'll notice from from the first snap it's a different type atmosphere and nobody has potential. Very few players anyway have more potential for embarrassment and a that a quarterback and right at that rate is almost quarter they wanna drop back and throw it they want to be seven on seven. And almost in me. They were talking about a lot today we think Stephon Gilmore for joining us talking about. The league in general in the three visitor Twitter poll which we put up. Little bit before noon today we want your input on that we want your input on the telephone lines as well. 8030550. Or tool free 1888550. To 550. The question on the table as the National Football League peaked in popularity is that on the way down and if so why. We've got more than 11100 votes and by Twitter so far. More than half of the respondents agreed as the number reason number one reason why. 27%. Say overexposure. 13% say no hasn't peaked it will continue to grow. 9% say concerns about. Injuries and concussions are the reason why what do you think 8030550. Or toll free 1888550. To 550. Caller from dean in west Seneca on this topic team go ahead welcome. October and these are not like comment on the rating down dark thought or whatnot iiroc. But first you know I really never get it cheered. That he. That they in its built career. Arc and he finally got the play deeper you can't yeah. And I think you debated on the wall it in there at all fared no it was our fault the white ball by. You're not harder of a party what what a great speaker was quite it's quite. Thanks. Our. About. Underrated. I remember what it took many years back where they shouldn't but I knew and they started out. The clock Colin kept her out of bounds play that much was it that five minute with a statement. And it paid about eight iron parked there went from three leading up hours. And we have been a lot more commercials all black football all I think the remarkable thing. There's there are outlawed but and I think that might get up there is news web. Operating. And our our our run both and hope they keep. I think there. From the Pittsburgh game when the seem like really made a bigger effort to throw the ball out VOR even from. Well hopefully I'll get to keep them adopt. Alcohol what you all are going all the stuff. And I and I now like that I've like tyra and I think that's that guy he can win without the huge enough quarterback to. To get the playoffs in and do some damage there which in term yankees. Win suitable but when you get to the playoffs. You came when a suitable. I think the point you made about. You know the clock running clock and you know definitely changed where there at the clock run between plays and that was all an effort to get the gains in 23 win. And there was a little bit that they said well hey there rob. Hands of ways because they're not going to be as many places that I don't think that's in the case I think people like the fact the game fits in with three hour window. And that we've spoken about this during the show perhaps dean didn't here Adam but. The league's very sensitive to as to how many commercials are played and when they're played in. The game and they have very strict protocols as to when they can break for commercial when they cannot break for commercial and how many times they can do that. Consecutively and also believe in intern. The networks have. A minimum that they mean some. Leeway to hang on for a little bit longer at a at a commercial break. They have minimums that they get they get in on these games as well so it is. A little bit of a marriage between the league and television as how many commercials they can play but that is continuing to be back with all the time there's golf from Jack in Rochester though Jack welcome. Hi you know I think he's an NFL is gonna continue to evolve on a path very similar to an NHL hockey. We're basically it's gonna get factor with less violence and and that's been the trend I think over the last couple of decades. But you know in the game get beaten up like that. It does create its own kind of problem and that he had the excuse generally with a concussion but they can get more difficult to watch. I mean the quakes seem to happen so fast now vs when I remember back in the seventies that you really almost dependent upon instant replay. But if you have a good knowledge of football like I don't really understand Q what happened on that type of a play. In this Japanese I think what would a little bit different what football and yet today it because it was lower and because it was more violent. And the it was more about individual kind of battle. You know when I think of a violent player at best then I don't think so much of offense and defense but like offensive player like Larry Dhaka and they. If you regularly at a time I watch him run the ball he did the same move where he can order tackle had been that the waste it took up a cut. Into the defender and I was trying to tackle him. And a lot of that was almost like the federal technical aviator thing but it was down 21 on one battle. Where can they get this kind of a team of very bad things happening. Interest and a object that's and dean are this obviously spent a lot of time watching game and noticed some of the differences we've been talking about. Knew he with the evolution of the game it is of much faster game. And the players are much heavier than they were in the seventies as well Mina and they're not that much taller. But they are heavier. And with the speed that comes with that comes also are you more force and which is why you know safety has become the issue that it hasn't. And you know eat you talk about how fast the game is becoming I agree with you I think the game is becoming faster and sleeker and less violent. I think people like that I mean particularly now you got games are routinely scoring in the thirties. It with you total the total points scored a game over well over fifty points. I think that's a good thing I think the league has worked towards that towards evolving toward that to that level. And I think they'll continue but. You bring up some good points I think one of the things that you can see there that you can look forward to seeing is you're one fundamental change we haven't talked about. Murphy that this has been mentioned to me by guys who were you know well versed in this competition committee. They've considered wide in the fields and right now it's 53 to thirty yards wide if you try to do the math it's a 160 feet. 53 to thirty yards I think that the league would maybe go to sixty yards wide. To be 180 feet wide which should be about three yards percent three and three yards and one foot on each sideline. And make him a few that much wider outside the numbers. What that would do is it just creates more space for guys to move around it begins it becomes more and more difficult to have collisions out there because there is more space. And offices would automatically fill those spaces with players that the defenders have to cover. And there's just more space for guys have to cover more ground for guys have to cover and therefore less. Collisions. Because there's just you guys to embrace Ford and oh boy goes on the offensive side of the football so. That's something has been a disgust as well most of the stadiums could have accommodated three yard with. Inclusion. Don't know that'll happen right away sounds like that would be a big boost for office it would be a huge boost for office and it would also take a lot of the you know the violent collisions away from me get a lot more drag downs a lot more open space tackling. And it would open the game up immensely but that's only one of the options that they've discussed. Let tweets that have come in on this topic about the NFL and as it peaked. Robert Monday tweets and completely agree benefit for around 55 years and for the first time I find myself. Losing interest that's that's hard to read and here's an agency one from Kevin G. Free agency ruined true rivalries team identities player loyalty. You'll never put that genie back in the bottle but I think there's an argument they're Stephen. No famous jury side felt comedy bit about your room for laundry you know and in some respects I mean just a minute or talking to Stephon Gilmore. Who may or may not be. Your next it has changed the landscape and I think one of the things it's changed too is now it's bill's fans he is patriot fans it's not the team's. It's our fact it's our fan bases you know in it was our stadium louder than your stadium is our. Stadium better than your statins are town better than your town. Our teams are they are. But I think it's become about how good of fans we are compared have been offend you or how easy it is to be patriot fan in this these days. As opposed to Egypt and repeals pander dolphins fan I think that's one of the ways it's it's shifted away from that our team beat yours or non. Or in my better fan because my team is what it is in yours is. That data is its and it's almost been a competition to have big thing and you are ready and then when your team's better let's take a call from Mike in Rochester oh Mike welcome your on the air this. Thank god are you doing out to be quick break we have got to allow read that one in the big picture I think it was election had a lot to it. People's interest because you know election your numbers are down a number so two lesser extent are they pay him and his retirement. At a little with the building owner guard spots on the. Okay Mike I mean important to just to be clear I don't think we're just talking about this year in a ratings decline what seven or 8% this year. Well we talk about that. Potential peak of NFL popularity I think we'll look at it as a longer. Term view write a bigger picture yes I think so too and I think that's in not suggesting I never thought about it that's given Peyton Manning a lot of credit than not I'm not but I would take any credit away from him he had maybe didn't vote now like I said the most important quarterback careers of all time. I don't know the one player like that is gonna make a difference I I think and in some ways maybe if you look at the AFC west and the chiefs. And then and the raiders. And the chargers aside from the dot Broncos were Peyton Manning retired from those three towns might have should have increased their ratings because their team has a better chance of beating new Peyton Manning and it and the Broncos are the Broncos without Peyton Manning so. But I get that and as far and that. Assertion about. The presidential election having something to do with the ratings dip could have some. Some merit I've heard that mentioned as well that the people were preoccupied during this football season with the presidential race and certainly. But continue to be preoccupied he said that a couple times now today Stephen Ireland what do you mean when you see Peyton Manning had the most important. Quarterback career goals that you know you're that you're not saying he was but that's one of the best certainly but I when he came by most important quarterback career. He changed the position. Permanently and raise the bore all the way it currently is what is expected that position him and him alone. He came into the league and remember he began and he think back you'll you'll know what I'm talking about first of all he was the first one to go. Completely at the line of scrimmage in Ohio we now the bills did that back in the day but he had the entire playbook is disposable and was calling plays on the fly. Based on what he saw across the line from himself remember too early in his career he was also the one that was using hand signals to his receivers to communicate better. He was also the first one to have full record full power control of who was in the game for him at any given time he made. Substitutions. On and off the field. All on the fly. At his own discretion. He also is one of those guys who. Dissected a defense. And he was that offensive coordinator on the field and givens Avian any given time policy come out in the pregame. And he was going through plays and precision passing routes with his receivers a place that they were gonna use in that game that day. And would have a an entire routine as to what he did. The way he ran in the meetings. There with his fellow players and I was and I said to some number of times. He's also one of the only players have ever seen do this the Friday of a championship game the championship game in which their play in the pay New England Patriots. To go to the Super Bowl. His was the only voice that I heard during office of sessions that practice he'd. Dictated what plays they were gonna run he dictated who was on the field defensively because he anticipated those guys being on the field for the beat New England Patriots and he also of course. Held the strings to who was in the huddle with him on the office of what personnel this is a guy that absolutely. Set himself apart. As to how prepared he wasn't how much power he wielded within that organization how much responsibility took upon himself. He raised the bar for every elite quarterback. During his time as a quarterback in National Football League because before him with a quarterback position was and after him with a quarter procession. Quarterback position is are two completely different things and he's the reason I everything and whom. Is his successor is anybody like that now well before him there have been guys before him like that Johnny niners yeah talk about him. He was a guy back in his day was the first guy to dissect film study. And start to use that information in his preparation for games and how he. Dissected the game. He's also got it when I came into the league in 1985 and it was twenty years after he'd finished her certainly fifteen years after he finished. Players of that ilk would become coaches would still to that date talk about him and whispered tone Johnny Unitas they would talk about him and whispered tones about how much different he was and everybody else. So there are guys who genuinely are generational players who come in. And maybe don't have as much success as everybody it was me super bulls Tom Brady your Joseph Montana or or Troy Aikman. But certainly transformed the league and how they perceive their position Johnny Unitas did that back in the sixties and seventies with. With his plays the COLT quarterback and I think certainly Peyton Manning did as the Indianapolis Colts quarterback in the incident the Denver. We're gonna break come back but Mora wanna hear more from you're gonna hear a little bit from the Senior Bowl some of the prospects down there we're gonna hear a little bit more from the Pro Bowl. And we wanna talk a little bit more about the NFL where it's headed. As the league peaked in popular. Got a lot round government we return John Murphy show.

Call here from Clarence and I'm sorry don't every name but. The caller and Clarence wants talk about Super Bowl refereeing is that right. They'll all get you out of here in the air. I had a question. Our large shady interview this morning and be good. And I'm sure you're very connections question. Probably choose the officiating. For the Super Bowl and the change. It's totally by merit. Totally by merit how they get they get every call they make during the regular season. Gets dissected as do plus or minus the air right they got it wrong. They also get graded on a non calls that should have been called. And they're they keep track of that all throughout the year. And also as it has to do with the way they've and they run their. And their crews well I mean how they knew that ahead of lead official has an enormous amount of paperwork to do. Reports and and assessments they go out all the time to the league. And their scrutinize that a higher level I think a lot of people understand given credit for so that it is totally by merit that they get the job. For the Super Bowl and also the playoffs now one thing that they do that the league does. That that they received some criticism for. Is that they don't leave cruise together for the Super Bowl they bring in the best they've been bringing the best side judge they bring in the best field judge to bring in the best had rep re umpire. There and a crew made up of the guys who had the best records throughout the regular season throw them together. For the Super Bowl and they received some criticism. For that for obvious reasons because guys have worked together. But by the same token I spoke to Mike Pereira about this also spoke to Mike. The guys CBS chair Mike Carey. They both say listen he's they way they they may not work together during the regular season that your. But they have worked together a number of years before that on different crews are there is some mash there for different guys on the cruise but that's the criticism they get a lot but there's you're quite there's your answer they get it because they're the best one you know I'd. Look I always look for reasons to criticize officiating. And in these playoff games have been a couple of occasions where I thought we'll see that they haven't worked together there's communication issue but for the most part they. And I'm on my breath here enough and effort in the Super Bowl but. For the most part they managed as you say Mac shouldn't get to work together because they are the best that there. Individual positions and they and they are well schooled I mean they all have specific. Responsibilities. That they are there given and they. It adhere to those. And they're the same for every each crew. Which is the consistency is the league shoots four. They want their crews to be run the same way with the same responsibilities so that if something slips to the crack at least he'll slip to crack for every crew yet and it'll become consistent. And consistent is the only war is the word that you hear me say and said I've said it you know two or three times already this the show. If that's what the league shoots four and that's why they get some criticism even from guys in the league about listened to want consistency give the crew now. Give recruited the game instead of making it an all star game. From Carl and Clarence and Carl should carry back our regarding. Yep pretty arrogant or right. A pulse fire and everything is cyclical. Boat now called Google backed off. I can over just to know on the that your. That they might look it up a little bit. It might make make it more fun for a spot. And all the nation virtual world the outside hole all go wrong. But. Did you that there are perfectly happy with that new coaching. And the Shah in the days are over for area and you know you're out sequences burger or behavior. And I bet those air pal the date or forms part and an an all source sound or pop acts while continue. In the right and just want to make all difference in the world made it fourteen points government. We can't look at that now in the several that they might give out an offense. Yeah I mean there's no question that the penalties are an issue and and he. Sean McDermott is going to be a different guy. Then. Then Rex was and they they're all different guys and before that Chan Gailey and before that you know. Dick Jauron you go back down the listed are all different and what to wait and see but. I. As for you know Marcel Daria sin and guys who have had problems there's no there's no excuse he could say which one of our Rex Ryan Rex Ryan can be. He can't keep them you can only punish him after the fact. It's a special coach to make sure that never happens at all on his watch. You know even. Even the patriots have had guys be suspended for it's for substance abuse and act kind of thing so. It happens everywhere and it's a rare coach you can completely obliterated from his roster but I I agree with him there's no question that that. At times the bill where their own worst enemy and in the responsibility that falls first and foremost with the head coach. A squeeze in another call here before we get to some Senior Bowl updates and we'll take a call from Maureen in Lancaster I'm Maureen welcome. I Gloria. It. I don't think like the gentlemen that worked but I don't think anyone in this area if story about the NFL. Can ever be an out in the stadium and look over the audience there this stadium Dolly felt. So all right now I'm like Rick you're there so they sell tickets there's no question about it. Yet and they're aired at latched the bills so I don't think there's any. Any question in my mind about them the NFL tackle on anywhere else. And I it would go a little bit of sport so that. I Maureen what about what about the league as a whole not just here in buffalo and I think buffalo we're gonna support their team no matter what what about around the league do you think. Here's you know that and how do you explain maybe that not as many people watching on TV and and that kind of thing. Look at the what the patriots are delicate. Pink and look at this fact. Super Bowl is coming up I'm I don't know what I'm Poland's foreign ensures that the patriots. They do. Yet thanks boring there's always interest in entries interest obviously in in the Super Bowl there will be this year expected ratings and number look we need a lot of us I don't think they're predicting the imminent doom and and the National Football League but the rate it's not just ratings I I hope we made that clear such as the dip in the ratings this year receive its. I think a general sense that the league is maybe not as compelling as he used to be I have that feeling don't you. Yeah and I think they were they were plague and have been for a few years with wants while everybody expects every game to go down the wire on those primetime games and and I think they get a lot more tension there because let's face it those primetime games at Thursday night the senate at the money games are games in which we get a lot of viewers who don't. Watched every gamers many games as like you and I watched. They watched those games and those games consistently disappoint them in some way shape or form. You know date they are as likely to tune in anyway yeah and and that's you know that's a trend that need to be addressed I think accurately officials. Now hey hum. The Senior Bowl is tomorrow you can watch that game on net NFL network guy Chris Brown was at Senior Bowl all weeklong now reports from him Tuesday Wednesday Thursday this week. He also had a chance to talk to some of the prospect we all of the bills that we don't know this but we anticipate the bills are going to be interested in. Fortifying the defensive backfield including safety there's an interest in prospect. From Iowa he won the Jim Thorpe award as a junior for Iowa last year eight interceptions came back to play his senior year for the Hawkeyes. Maybe not having as much success but he wanted to show that it wasn't a fluke. These Goodyear's junior's name is Desmond king 510203. Pounds of 453. Time in the forty yard dash some people think Desmond Ken king might project to a safety. Picture in the NFL Chris brown and others talked to Desmond king at the Senior Bowl and talked about the possibility of that happening. As things is a very grasping a nine inning game and that's something that you can build on you know it. Have those instincts can really take against the next level and I really think they hope will how much are you going to be. Movies this week. It cracks me or it. Come alive and I'm here you know to soak in on information get help from a different people and learn techniques and that's what I'm here for is to get better and and true Democrat. Knowing how much. See these. Walked up the line of scrimmage he's. That the tightest cap is needed to run just your. How you feel your quarter experience these benefits you did in fact something wants us. And it cost us an email from lower level lowly high school and in going to cause you know. As a DB need to know way the whole secondary is doing not just the organizers say if you need to know. Where the way to save is doing went to a corner or nickel is doing. Because you are doing the same thing you say the key road down covenants slots and this ought to same aspect N'sync concert so. I find us very important as a party need to know what to say these things well. One would be a successful week for you here. You know just getting better going out there working heartland aren't any you know like I said improve my craft and my performance. Desmond king defensive back from Iowa may be a safety may be on the bills trader Chris Brown talk him down there at the Senior Bowl. See we were just talking a minute ago about how things have changed in the league and among the things that have changed is the the around focus on talent acquisition Senior Bowl com by coming up next month all of that existed when you were coming out but it didn't seem as some. I don't know heavily saturated with violent events they weren't events like as a report events the draft is an event the combine is event. OT raiser events. Senior Bowl is an event. It is never ending and the league does that generate interest and to garner more fans and the more fans they have the big from their mortgage here in the you know all of that so. They they want to stay perk relevant. Throughout twelve months of the year in and they've done a pretty good job doing that no question about it the question is now even we yesterday's too much too much too much and I don't know that. I'm so Amish certain that the NBA the NHL I think it's too much ethnic here trying to get yeah he met in front Cubans say that essentially member of the Dallas Mavericks owner a year or two ago trying to will try to put a wedge into that people between the NFL and fans during Super Bowl week and for that and pops that means nobody even. Me might catch the scores yet. While I meet me watch the saves that. But you know that's it. That's the extent of my interest yet. I area. Are gonna break come back and wrap things up at the moment the John Murphy shall presented by no go we are comedy a live from one bills drive in this is Buffalo Bills radio. Things he's not John Murphy show on. And now what do we learn from today's show we learned presented by advance alliance are ready Western New York homes and businesses with the finest insecurity home theater the preferred alarm and home theater provider of the Buffalo Bills a couple of good guests today we heard from Andy Reid. Who spoke to our crew in Orlando Florida at the probable Andy Reid of course I brought John McDermott. It is National Football League has a coaching assistant and eventually as a defense who coordinated with him in Philadelphia and Andy Reid was asked what bills fans can expect. From John McDermott. You have an extremely Smart guy. Phenomenal worker. Great person. Very well organized and good family men never everybody involved. China's. Tremendous football coach not base in all the way he wanted to play. Administrative assistants all the way up through the coaching ranks coordinator now. The head coach and has worried people. Andy Reid get city chiefs coach coach of the AFC squad in the Pro Bowl. On Sunday also we heard from Stephon Gilmore earlier this hour the bills quarterback Serena via a free agent. At the Pro Bowl in Orlando Florida and Gilmore talked about his experience that is preferable. You referred. That the person that Orlando is of particular. Note and a lot of votes apparently. Though it they end and you know have a little bit. Defensive bit. As an inner circle of her opponent. Stephon Gilmore had trouble and that's what we've learned from my. Today show we talked a lot today Steve about big long term issues the popularity the NFL has a peak that's. Take one last look at our Twitter poll as the NFL peak of popularity. And if so why we took more than almost 12100 votes really and 50% say green 27% say. It has peaked because of overexposure. 14% say no it's gonna continue to grow. 9% say because of concerns over injuries and concussions you are in the know category you think the league will continue to grow absolutely. I think they've really they do it really nice job addressing these issues at the ones like the ones we brought up and and for Meehan and of this for fact. He's just three issues it RC or are people perceiving us being too greedy because we're moving east franchise around or people. Are we overexposed are we allowing too much commercial many commercials and our games. What about this concussion thing I mean they've started to address the concussion issue which we've all seen. But best three issues. And Tony the league have dozens of issues that they're addressing and they do they attacked us on all fronts and they've got a lot of very. Smart and very high quality people. Addressing all these issues and a dozen or two more. There that the league feels are important for their progress progress into the future general for a chance to QB for the Super Bowl next week and it's seems pretty clear you expect the patriots victory I do I don't think they'll run off and win by fifteen or twenty point because I think the Atlanta Falcons are very good offensively but I do think that. Patriots are gonna get more stops than Atlanta. And I think that's bill's defeat I think this may be good game a close game like it we see a lot from the patriots in the Super Bowl. But I think the patriots are gonna get more defensive stops and think Tom Brady was scoreless and thirtieth think they can keep Atlanta from doing that. Well I'm all set to dive into the head first into the suitable swap. The Super Bowl hype next week like coverage from radio row Super Bowl 51 in Houston Texas I'll be there next Tuesday through Friday.
