And UConn women's basketball team now with 100 consecutive victories that is an NCAA division one record. They've got eleven national championships they won their 100 game in a row last night. The top ranked Huskies beat six ranked South Carolina 66 to 55 getting to 100 a little tougher than many of the previous 99. UConn won it by an average of 38 point seven points in the previous 99 wins. It is the judge John Murphy show presented by no go work chemical I think the reason in your lap and we talked about this. And show prep for this morning. And you mentioned I didn't know it was at 38. Point margin of victory by UConn in the previous 99 hazards that are what are we talking about it I am playing teams are what the I mean I don't know what they'll like I guess he's is getting the best recruits to come there and getting them to buy in this system. And like there's no other team opted talent in them right now like there's no other team. Remotely close yet these security UConn men's basketball and the women's Alan mark my cousin plea to the reason I became mute them as well ultimately. For them. He's in Jones and you know she went into the WNBA. So I and back then you come in order in Newark. Room. They've won championships recently as well blood UConn women have always been a dominant force or since he's been coach Dino and perhaps. And now it's just like this is they have fun and it's like. Wiry and. Why why why do no doubt my point and you win by 38. 39 points per game what are we talking about it is that the competition you know not at all and then I guess is none nobody can do that. All right enough women's basketball until October today show we're talking about the NFL and football with tomorrow being the first day the teams can use the tag on. Players joining us right now on the subway fresh stick out like. Senior football editor at wrote a world Evan Silva who's gone through the entire 32 team. NFL in listed team needs really get into that the second but Evan first of all thanks for joining us John Murphy and Donald Jones we appreciate you coming on the show that today. We're talking about tags at the start of the show today evident. Whether the bill should use a tag on any of their free agents. I had an output via an open up what you on the spot here but. Is any of the bills you know premium first are free agents Stephon Gilmore. Zach brown Robert Woods any of them worth a tank and that you see at least from your opinion. I mean I think it Stephon Gilmore. From a talent stand point would be worthy of a heart of the French art Eric. However I think it is on field performance has been a little bit inconsistent. He had some great years and terrorism. Some not and mix that in with some not so great gains. And it doesn't seem like you're just based on. There's the conversations. Around the NFL right now that Stephon Gilmore is likely to receive the franchise. And I think that if he does hit the market you know these young corner with a lot of ability even if they. No inconsistency in their pastor nor strength and was kind of like that. With the rams. And you course edit and an incredible here this past season with the giants but and he he got a big payday and I think. Set on Gilmore is is probably looking at similar situation. Evan Ellis again about a year ago. At this time when Josh Norman got loose from my Carolina. And there was a lot of head scratching about his contract at the time and you know again go back year people around these parts and well that's it now the bills won't be able to sign Stephon Gilmore was Norman's contract really like the you know the harbingers that this would not be able to happen for Stephon Gilmore. I mean. I think I mean just Norman right now is the highest paid quarterback and you know well I don't think it's Stephon Gilmore is gonna get that sort of a contract. But I think it he's going to be highly paid and this this year's. Free agent quarterback classes really strong got Jermaine Johnson from the rams. Got Stephon Gilmore east sorted down the list AJ we ate from the Texans. There are a lot of really good quarterbacks available. That maybe that will serve to do it to the police stepped on don't worst price tag a little bit. But I but I think if people know oh I know how to use just if you use and I think you can and they're getting paid because that's what happened. Now when you look at at corners right now on a free agent market where is Stephon rank this as far as guys who are free agents. And Europe's. And bring up my list right here that are mentioned marine guards and he's a guy who I think is. You're going to end up with a big payday AJ Blu-ray in regard to a lot of people. You know are already talking about. And I think they key is media sleeper for the franchise tag with the traction. You know my recorder back lit yeah I'm I have I have Stephon Gilmore is number three RD agent William trimming Johnson Morris Claiborne. There's a guy who had a great season for Dallas or getting hurt. Logan Ryan I had a great year for the patriots moving are moving this slot cornerback. Craig Kirkpatrick has been a solid. Starter in Cincinnati all those guys are what seven our younger. Yet I should mention Evan has a pretty not pretty but a very comprehensive list of NFL free agents posted last Thursday ruled the world the free agency of period when it begins. The world we'll have updates on where these players know what kind of deals are signing. Evans over the senior football editor wrote the world on this I'm this right now Evan in the first step for all of these teams. Including the Buffalo Bills I'm sure as to evaluate. What they haven't what they might need you've done that you've got to favour of these teams all 32 with your list of team needs let's start with the bills and not some surprisingly you've got quarterback at the top your list for Buffalo Bills needs can you elaborate and that will be. Yeah community they need to make a decision you know they're gonna happen regularly at the big decision to make recording Tyrod Taylor. If they're going to. Move on him which would it save them a lot of you know space under the salary cap. That would allow them to do other things on the free agent market maybe keep a guy like on Gilmore or go after Egypt border or from me Johnson. If they don't bring back Tyrod Taylor is seen really 5050. Can be at this point. I think they are going to be looking at athletic quarterbacks look at this history they're new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. If he comes from that group reaction here in coaching tree. You day. That is a very bootleg eccentric often mean. They run bootlegs on on so many other plays and you need a quarterback that has the capability of making throws on the run. I think it all read. The big of the top rated quarterback in this year's crap. Check that box on Watson is obviously an athletic guy. As is shown Kaiser in Richard Richard risky. Is also. Syria. And and can actually cute that style and often that if you look at their new quarterback coach David colleague. He comes from. And you read. Background. You know West Coast often so they're going to be playing West Coast all and I think that they're gonna try to incorporate a lot of bootlegs into their passing game. And they're going to be looking for athletic quarterbacks. And just Tyrod fits in that mold you think Evan in your mind. I mean he's obviously got the athletic yet criticism part down. You know he he's not a quarterback it's wrote with great anticipation. And you know if he has some limitations as a there. I mean he's a very fun player to watch. But they're also. Times over the past couple years where they're passing game would go. You know possession after possession after possession. Where they're just aren't able to move the ball and they're they're offered was inconsistent because that it and they're also have to address the as a receiver position big time. You know they they have to make a decision on Robert Woods should still very young player and he's won four years old you know this kid Cooper car. Coming out of eastern Washington is 24 years old Robert Wood just 44 years old after having spent four years in the NFL. And I you know he's still a player that that made it sent out I'll be very interest to see what happens with Robert what they think you can. An interesting guy because he doesn't put up with that. But when he's been healthy he's been a really solid contributor. To the guys who can play a lot of different receiver position. Your movement in this plot. I'll be interested to see what happens with him. Now as I look at your list. You know and if so freeagent at the quarterback position. You have Kirk cousins Michael and in. Brian Hoyer Matt Barkley I guess is top four. You don't have to our on this list because he's not a creating yet but if Tyrod was to come available where does he then go on this list. I have behind Kirk cousins. You know I think that Tyrod Taylor even though he's not. You know he's not like you know he and I felt passer. Either medical starter who talked when he NFL quarterback. And he he would probably be number queued for me but aren't. Kirk cousins. You know that the free agency list. For the quarterback position every year is its per week. Kirk cousins I would be shocked if he got out of Washington. Mike lining. It is that a player UB BA he was okay. In some early career starts. But I don't think he's the guy is gonna is starting caliber money Brian Hoyer. It is you know he's one of the better backup quarterback who's in the lead. But not someone that. You're big teams are gonna look at it as a potential 2000 separate charter so the free agent market is weak but it Tyrod Taylor hit it. You know keep he would clearly ascend to the top because I don't think occur conferences. It is going anywhere. I'm alive with Evan Silva used senior football editor for rule the world he has written a offseason lowdown for every team in the NFL in their. There needs going into this personnel season. You've got defensive back is the number three need quarterback first for the bills. And wide receivers you talked about that in the Robert Woods issue. And tell me why he had defensive back is number three in your list of bills went. Arm because there is. Obviously we talked about Stephon Gilmore and how this future is up and I'm not sure. What. That help his cult status of Aaron Williams. And earned oriented been a solid and I felt urgency he went healthy. He's got a couple of problems. You know what is within the neck and spine richer are obviously scary. Situation. I I like what we saw from kept on seeing more as a rookie last year I think they're Ronald Darby again when healthy is. A strong and self starter. And kill ruby Coleman has been. A pretty good slot Warner even now looking like. Rex didn't always appreciate. How how good he was and he actually got benched it's time. But when when you've been on the field and and you know in. Played consistently. He's been a pretty good plot back. And then Corey Graham that it is either solid starter Berkshire but I think that Aaron Williams. And step on your worst kind of uncertain future. Make. Secondary position that the bill we're gonna have to address. Ever and so would join its talk about the bills also some of the let's talk about AFC east rivals the dolphins. I guess I'm surprised that any team. May feel like they really need the tight end but you've got tight end is the number one offseason need for Miami there are they and that could shape everywhere else I guess that's what I'm asking your haven't. No one but if you look there. You look at those other than that sort you know you probably never heard of that you know the guys that are. That are on. And if you look at Adam gate is track record you know he was in using Denver. He was in Chicago where Zach Miller had a break out year for them in Denver with Julius Thomas you know. Always wanted to use. An athletic. Tight end in at all times and I mean it is not a matter like who knows this can really. You need. Tighter and to get to the next level but if you look at their depth chart here they have under contract for next season. I mean you know issues that they they needed they need to get it right there. I guess I'm not surprised to see office in my particular guard. On your list of Miami team needs we knew that going in and the dolphins somehow managed to muddle through and Wanda with a pretty good season but they had. Early in the season in particular they had some serious offensive line issues that they finally pulled together as the season went along. Yeah and being able to had a bunker injured if you don't offer supply and there were harmed or brain and Albert. Who Wear army console. My parents see. Those guys were all injured at the same time. And that you that like. They as the season progressed at Altman's became an offense that was very committed to the running game. And they were only able to run the ball consistently. Missing all those offensive lineman. They they have achieved that have a really good offered the line going forward they're gonna get Albert back so you learn and so. How he's gonna be healthy right tackle who won games has been. All right. And then they're they're right guard where it was really a big liability through my book Rath. And older guys who played tackle the entire career the priorities in the right guard. He was an issue. But if and I think they might go after Kevin Butler. At a Cincinnati. Who. He is going to be a very coveted. For you in on the guard market may be they have kind of been released. Being over run first call friends built around good guy he under Adam gave. And I expect them to continue to try to supplement. That can lots. Now coming up the East Coast a little bit too to the jets and you have quarterback obviously they only have two guys in the contract impressed that he. In Christian Achtenberg and I don't know anyone expects one of those guys to be the starter Dave one. Of the season so what's going on down in the exit. Earlier there and there are bad shape and I you know dollar per not a veteran. Guys that I am bills radio and I'm. Happy for these. You know they're they're you know art so you'd use it's funny how they're. Their organization has is kind of developed over the years so they had you know emperor two years John music. In there and he got rid of all their old. Crusty veterans in. He'd like. Created a ton of salary cap space and he didn't really track well. And he only had like attractive. That he was in control but they're they're they're organization started to get a little help. And then. The new GM came in Mike McCarron in two years ago. And yet all the salary cap space anyway around spending at all and you like me treat your retreat draft picks for veterans I mean. And and they had the weakest schedule in the lead in the wind I think eleven and five. Yeah missed the playoffs. Be that we built out of my thanks guys in the and that's final game yet and and and now their their organization. Like. They have like the most unhealthy organization. In the NFL from Micah salary cap and rosters and point. But Mike Gartner in Q1 NFL executive of the year. That that year in 2015. Because basically what he did was he just used all them all the money that the previous guy created. Just went out spent at all they had one year wonder like decent year against an easier schedule and manner so. And now them in there that are that are really really really really really batches. They are so lastly in the ABC seven is the patriots and because of some of their own free agents this year and Chris Long and Alan Branch. Dame might have to plug some holes up front and the defense of language they weren't really that strong at least in terms of a pass first pressure even their Super Bowl championship here. Yet there their pass rush is. More one of their biggest needs if not their biggest user and you're right they have untrue like older veterans UB. That our free agents or a guy like Rob Ninkovich you really just kind of at the end of his career. And they don't have very many young building blocks I think Malcolm brown the guys that are got a truck is in the first round a couple of years ago. Could be considered that and trees flowers. You rise in third year player out of Arkansas. He had a big usable if you had separate fact during the regular season that you guys. Are the only cute young players that the creatures really can hang their hat on. Brought on the defensive line. So. I would very much expect them to. Tried to address that position in the chart you're a couple of years ago would dominate easily. Out of order he had injury issues and they discovered gave up on on the X you're pretty you're in the last year for the rams. As a third you sort of tackle. But yet but that that looks like their biggest weakness right now. Now you look at. The cornerback position in Logan Ryan who's going to be created this year. The question for me with the patriots it's always you know will these guys aside I wanna get the money are wanna stay there win some more. Do you think that Logan Ryan will stadium we we all know. How the patriots look at certain positions they pace certain positions over others I don't know if he would give topped out and he might get top dollar somewhere else does he stayed here. He's decided it was a warehouse and. I mean he could meet you seem like the perfectly tree and that the picture glow guys that are Rutgers number one. He's personally can play multiple positions. I he's played perimeter cornerback he wound up playing slot cornerback for almost all last season with excellent. In that role we've seen him chase number one receivers at times. He treat Garten under Hopkins in the in the divisional round of the playoffs code is 65 yards on I think like nine or like under eleven target. And yet he he you know he he's not a guy who. Causes any problems or you know talk much. To the media or anything like that so he seemed like the perfect patriots but you know you pay if this do you want to get paid and you know he's 26 or 27 years old man. If I was 26 or 27 years old and had a chance to get you know a ton of money like I would go do that you know. So that that would be that the decision at that he makes personally he she got that he had the free agent market. You know he's gonna get paper turkeys eat either really really strong and I felt front to back. Yemen were about three weeks away from the start of free agency you've gone through that the needs that every one of the 32 teams has. When free agency opens and at three weeks is it going to be one guy who. You know breaks the bank is going to be one big name that day you know first a free agent signing that ever is gonna sit up and take notice. I got a question quickly. That the quarterback. That we talked about before. People. Saying that they really don't. Think of this are strong free agent class I don't know why it exactly it'll think that that is mean if you look at the quarterback position. I mean that that they had there are some really strong young players are I'll open interested to see what happens without stronger guys that. You know he has had some some consistency issues last year he was suspended for four games. You before that in the seven games with injuries. But went when he is healthy he's a dominant. And it fell while ago. And I mean he viewed that this sort of receiver that you can build your passing game around. And all the interest and see what happens with him because she he's got a legitimate. Difference maker and I also really think that there are a lot of lot of good young players at the top of the quarterback mark. I guess you're assuming where I guess we all assumed that. There's no way Washington lets Kirk cousins at the open market otherwise wouldn't he be the guy right he'd be the number one. Absolutely yeah I mean that's that's an assumption that that I've kind of made you know guys like chamber Jones. For the cardinals. Oh lead pat structure we outside as structure I don't think he's gonna go anywhere lately on Bo you know I don't think he's gonna go anywhere so. There were discussed in the guy William I'm talking about players I think that I have a chance to hit the market and Kirk cousins. Way beyond bell. Chamber Jones operative those guys dollar. A guy who you don't have on the quarterback listened and we're all wondering what's gonna happen with them obviously he's not going to be the starter down in Dallas Tony Romo. What's gonna happen with him. Yeah I'm very very intrusive to assist you what happens with the turnaround on him. I've heard some rumors that he didn't look very dude on the practice field. In November. And there were some concerns at cal always as valley ranch without that. But he got into. The game it was a week seventeen against the Eagles. And you know he only had like three or four pass attempt where he looked really good on those plays so that was what a perfect outcome for the cowboys. That he you're just sad that really small simple plays look really good. When he was out there especially after there were some concerns about the way that he looks physically when he came back. From from that short or collarbone injury late in the year. I mean. Theoretically because of how. How competent quarterback taller around the NFL. How much they're worse. A guy like Kirk cousins is beginning to franchise back for the second street even. You know it and it's gonna keep your card to a long term contract it's going to be worth. In excess of twenty million dollars a year we quarterbacks are extremely coveted. The most important position in professional sports. And because of that I would think it's going to remote would have tree out. But. He's you know. It is this guy gets hurt and you know your your your totally out. You know the money that you spent on the drastic ban on so. And you're happy he's got a big contract. So if it's a really typical situation to predict I think he'll be a starter somewhere. To begin. The 2017. Season it's hard to say I mean I think there's attacks and would make a lot of sense but they sound like they're not interest. Beat the Broncos would make sense. I you know you have to go play like in cold rough weather after being but don't quarterback and now you know now he's 37 years old with. You know back control problems. That the cardinals would have made sense but they're getting back court courses all over I think that the the bills we would make some sense if they part ways. We Tyrod Taylor and wanna try to make a run. In 2017. But you know that a few dominoes are gonna have to fall. Where that happens so I think that we will see Tony Romo and just order for sure it's really hard to say right now what we we get them. But we do this and shatter the calm behind. You'd usually likes them. Some reports we got during that time indicating which teams are going to be interstate in which players and are expected to get some solid information. After teens being at the combine. Although the chatter now Biden will be adding to it it usually root and they haven't take for this great work thank you very much for being an ominously we appreciate it. Evans still would join us on the subway fresh take outlines subway eat pray she is the senior football editor for wrote the world is put together is offseason mowed down it's not through the entire movie. With neat for each team including the Buffalo Bills you can read it. And wrote a world that or thanks Kevin so look for joining us not to buy back more moment and we wanna talk about more free agent talk will wanna talk about Greg Roman. And what he said in Baltimore and maybe a clue as to what he thought about. Buffalo's offense the last couple years that's coming up next John Murphy show from one bills drive buffalo Pillsbury. We are back with more of that John Murphy she. Effective Joseph John Murphy Dow Jones live at one bills drive got another thirty minutes or so and you've got thirty minutes to get your phone calls and 8030550. Till 31888. By fifty to 550 or via Twitter maybe you wanna participate in our Twitter poll as we talk about free agency summit of the deadline awkward. Windows not even a deadline it's the opening of the free agency period released tomorrow at least for teams to use their tanks entering this intact their franchise tag. And this is art where polar we've had a troubled three hours now shut the bills. Use the franchise or transition tag on one of their players we've got more than 675 votes in. 48% of you say don't bother don't use the tag on any one. 28% say use the tag on Stephon Gilmore. 17%. Saying Zach brown 7% say. Robert Wood you can weigh in on that maybe you think not about merit attacked I am inclined to agree with you Boettcher taught your thought but. Give us a call at 8030515. Your toll free 1888552. But if you look like you say there. Yeah it looks like. I mean. When you talk about those guys and tag you know to be honest with you it's it doesn't make sense tag in the eighties I agree you know and it and that's been just because. The tax situation at the bills are in right now. It doesn't make sense to cat permit to tag Stephon necessity to be engine plane while educate him that that the money was Zach you know you probably can find. A couple linebackers that you view. The same value on the field com. The same production on the field I mean an end with Robert Woods I mean I think now we're Robert Woods he can be he's not gonna give him the team right but. Long term. Less to say they decided to. Let's aren't so ago. And as the city were right within let's aren't so ago we're gonna draft. Whoever disarm Watson right the first round whoever falls demand on the tenth. At that point. Why receiver becomes a premium. Because now you need that you have a rookie quarterbacks he need to put as many weapons around him as possible yet beautiful weather authority it was too because is limitations passing but it never rookie he need to make sure you have weapons guys that know what he's doing so bin Robert Woods could become. Priority at that point you know when you could say we won assign them you know what. I guess if if if the bills go with a rookie Europe sees second year quarterback Kurt Jones if they go that way. I think it's less of a premium on it and adding to weapons because basically I think you're taking a step back and Hussein. You know we want to reset what we're doing offensively. I wouldn't invest in. I would invest a lot of money and Robert Woods or any other wide receiver if you're going with the you know and inexperience or rookie quarterback pedestal I think it's it's just not the way ago that I'd now if you keep Tyrod and yes if you keep them in. If somehow they managed to get them under a better contract I don't think his current contract is is that onerous that you can't deal with a I think he could that if they even get him under a better contract. And as Steve pointed out have the money to to spend on other weapons that I think yet surround them with weapons is that mean. Sign Robert Woods to a a huge deal nine million a year Null I wouldn't do that. Would you know I mean I'm I'm not giving him nine million a year I think I think if there might be a team now Steve doesn't think so I think there will be team that is an eight or nine million a year I think life in I don't know what the bills offered him. I would think it might be somewhere like six. Probably back to get it done with sprite or seven but I don't you know there are teams like. San friend that might offer because they need everything right and they haven't they have a new coach in thank house and and we know likes to run a spread. Type of offense that throws the ball a lot you know and so if they were offered him. Then you know he's gonna wanna go back to California anyway and so if that which you know you can't gambling for them like that put them I think. For me if you end up with an inexperienced quarterback I do think you need to have. Like silent receivers that doesn't mean you go to wallet and pay guys like crazy I mean you need to do a good job I did it last year of finding guys or one. You know one year contract. You know like Hillary though I was and his sub continent like a Zach brown contract. The next year maybe you can free up more money and pay more guys that you need to surround Baghdad with more weapons. And they just have their their hands full. It's an intriguing list of potential free agents as we said we're still two and a half three weeks away from the free agent market actually being open but. There are some big names some of these names won't be there when free agency opens including lady on value and anticipate the Steelers will keep him around. Kirk cousins as we just talked with Evan silly you would think that the Washington's gonna keep him around Chandler Jones same with him. But there are some intriguing names in and Evan Silverman to them including. Ouch on Jeffrey. Intriguing idea break the bank trying to sign him I don't know about that. A high praise for AJ booted the cornerback from Houston and actually Evans so look ranks him ahead of Stephon Gilmore Kevin's site there was talked about. You know these guys more likely to wind up on the free to market and I think guys these are Greg Rosenfels. From nfl.com his top sixteen free agents as we said some of those won't be there and a couple of weeks when they market actually opens but. There's enough there to get your interest in I think another edit the invasion a couple of guys being overpaid which always. My qualities does that we're looking at a life. Day one free agents right right guys to go to C go on day wine and had to make objects last deal you know. Now I would think here as far as cornerback. You might seem like Dayton type guys. And guys that won't get a couple million but not anything that's gonna break the bank they're coming here and you can become. You know a starter or whatever. Linebacker I think you might see us if you're not gonna do them a draft. Do something on on day one it is just. It's so hard man because of it did the tat situation at the bills are in right now. They have to really be Smart about the money get their spending in one position because they have so many hills some deals only holes and you'll have six. Traffic's. So like with what are you gonna do with six draft picks. And you don't have as much money to spend their free agency is this going to be tough it's gonna be tough there's going to be a lot of work that has to be done in the next two weeks. Things like you know reworking deals around the roster guys that that are currently under contract. Bring in other guys in free agency deciding on Tyrod Taylor or not you know it's it's and in drafting. And deciding if you wanna tree back in the draft pick up more drastic like it's it's gonna be interesting what these guys do and the next couple weeks in the next couple months. If your thoughts on this give us call get a few minutes left NATO three or 550 or toll free 1888550. To 550. Wanna switch gears a little bit Donald. Item that came across our desk. From Baltimore Ravens dot com they did an interview a sit down interview with Greg Roman the former bills' offensive coordinator who is now the ravens senior offensive assistant. And tight ends coach under head coach John Harbaugh ravens have had a problem running the football for a couple of years now it. Look at its stance they have the third fewest rushing attempts last season seventh fewest the year before that. They led the league in their pass attempts. In 2015. They wanna run the ball and they've got a guy who really designed Buffalo's. Outstanding run game now in Greg Roman bit. Roman kind of issued I don't it's. Warning I know it's a smokescreen and he said just read your quote what your thoughts and they Greg Roman now with the Baltimore Ravens. I wouldn't trust this Greg Roman I wouldn't try to pigeonhole us just yet there were gonna try to be grounded out. So familiar reason is regrow an Odyssey who really wins big doing that I think you have to have balance. But that doesn't mean we're not going to be make people respect us in their fees in the game the ravens 28 in the league in rushing yards last year. The ground and pound echoes of Rex Ryan's two year tenure here in buffalo I don't think Rex. You know in his heart of hearts went into either one of those seasons thinking. We're going to be ground and pound we're gonna run the ball. But that's the way it worked out I think they were kind of take it easy on a first year starter Tyrod Taylor in this past year a second your starter they're trying to have it. Move him along slowly and it turned out to be the number one rushing attack in the league. But there wasn't balance in the buffalo offense last. Years whether there was a balance now you look down their Baltimore you would think they'd. But the quarterback they have they should be balance right now. I look at that often as being over the last couple years down impound lycra and it seems like they run the ball a lot down in Baltimore and that's been the staple of their office. Running the ball and in use in a play action off the bat with Joseph Flacco. Here in buffalo. They need to be a lot more balance they have been ground and pound that was Rex Ryan's thing. But sometimes you just got used would you add the so if you have a team that can run the ball and is gonna be number one in rushing. You need to use that in the ground and pound I mean that's just it is what it is you have to. Taylor everything around this the team that you had been until you can find the players that fit the system you want to run. Well guess what you have to do to deal with what you have and ask what they did last. I don't think. And get hourly Reid decided doctor Greg Roman since the day was let go I don't think Roman is is taking a shot at what when I'm here in buffalo on direct right I think as you said. The trying to make due with what they had at the time they didn't want to weigh expose Tyrod Taylor to. A lot of passing attempt they they knew they had Shawn McCoy they knew they had a very capable offensive line. And and I don't blame the person we want establish balance I'm sure he wanted to be more balance in buffalo that didn't really work out. During his one plus what to gain tenure here and they wanna be more balance in Baltimore where they have not had much of a run game minute. At a fairly strong passing game for a couple of years. Hum and I don't blame him actually paper you know we all know I think. You've got to bureau Greg Little bit he wants to be head coach and he does and he showed that's good these exit valid. You know ambition for him. And I'm certain that he does not want to be known as mr. rounded up and more and bright and especially in today's NFL I'm certain that Greg Roman does not want to be. You're the guy just wants around the ball and and you don't care about throw the ball. I'm certain Greg Roman wants to avoid that with every fiber of his being. There at the Olympics so I would things open speaking of ground and pound. And we talked about this in the past I'm another guy who was restricted and only get to thoughts of what you think the bill should do with them. What tender they should give Mike it was. I think they should whatever it takes. I can't quote to the numbers but whatever it takes to keep from there I think you really need Mike Gillis and an important part of what they've done on office tracker right you don't want to create it's it's gonna be interesting with my jealously because you might have a team try to come -- do with the pages they went with Chris Hogan and at the saint I think they would give him it's in there where they have to be compensated for Mike. Yes and yes you don't wanna let him go for free but you know and and the Hogan thing is you know you don't. Look I don't. Begrudge the Bill Lynn Hogan go at all that's too much money they weren't in position to prioritize Chris Hogan Amanda. Pretty similar year to what he did here in buffalo and an outstanding AFC championship game but. I don't think you can operate out of the year or worries that somebody's gonna take meticulously is is Mike ghostly a make or break it player for years season. No probably not as he could complement to LeSean McCoy absolutely. Eats it he's a really good compliment. And a valuable to a depth that so that's the way I would value is that your question. I mean you that's exactly I have to value for me I think he's a guy who. If something happens that Lewis on you can put him in the game and say you know he can get the job done so for me. I do think you should operate. We need to have this guy in office we need to have this guy and are running attack because he has a good compliment now I'm not saying you just. You pay a multi it's a crazy money but you do need to make sure that if someone was to come in and say we wanna take is this guy may offer him some money. It's here at least compensated for. Let's take off from Sean in Dallas welcome John you're on the air. Why I'll let. Our eyes on the. Our our long term about the as the tying things in the radio show like Islamic odd don't you run after. On the ballot. That was the radio should never. Thank you under the afternoon for whatever reason. I'd miss a lot of leadership. I think at the end of the day for me a lot. Over and by the cabinet you show like all these areas are you wanna go out there. But I do like there's the timing threatening but I'm not taking every show. But it's at this juncture things. I would disagree with the now on the breaking news and then we're in a slow period right now yet obviously we're in the doldrums but. During the season this hero was perfectly positioned to handle breaking news. You know every day news conferences. Practice updates injury updates of post practice some players coming off the field. During the season this the show was in the right place at the right time. Com. And old the second thing you always have the option is to go to Buffalo Bills that come and pick up the entire show or port of the show the two main mast you know that rate job. Your cat well da okay I'll. Where the ball one of original call. You know a piano or kind of luck for active and forget about it. No for me personally the way I look at it. I never want ever you know at like Jerry Rice. At a rainy mosque at that as a hate out here from you know with Peyton Manning. Yeah I never bottom is one of those guys. But. You know. It is a great there's no doubt about it. And what I think about so in came without achieving what is there they're pulling. That you configure that would halt city. Controversy. As army could copy the current article about how key this store. He sold his character I think it is well here you. Are. There are outweigh. Performing. Like when I look at I never. You know and they've got. I just I don't know why I think the bad. You know the way that will play. It. Out. The guy. I think what you're looking at don't make a hole. Unfortunately. In other plate. That you can make sure. That. But. After. It. I do think your overplaying that a little bit Sean. Can you site teams that he destroyed my outlook was he a controversial player yet I was via. A me first guy via a to a certain extent but did he really destroyed teams I think waiting I don't know. Well I get a lot of stuff was overblown and I look at the teams that he was on in and on the feel the need help teams you know we help teams did the first wife performed on the field and help teams into the playoffs here he helped to take. Philly to the Super Bowl you know he got hurt he came back in a Super Bowl played on a broken ankle like you know I I just think. That a lot of that stuff in opera controversy was played out and I equate him very much to Deion Sanders. Controversial flamboyant player of the politics to themselves. That he did behind the story team if I don't think so they really play. Really take a break come back with more than John Murphy show from one bills drive on Buffalo Bill street. We're back with more of that John Murphy you don't.
