These sound comply GO. I'll jump on field sound got dungy ills go bungee don't sound gut punch yields down coupons GO. I'll go bungee elves good but I feel on WGR. Salad and Indianapolis sitcom behind where all sorts of fun football stuff is still a number of recap what we heard yesterday from Sean McDermott. Find out what's going on today correct your AT&T hotline cell. I want you to get your hand size measured today. They wanna do that now with all the numbers out there. For me okay and your your hands are too small that you can't play quarterback I mean yeah I mean I'm not not Democrats you know apple quarterback here you know so can these guys have much bigger hands it. Yeah that's pretty vague you know. I was only actually average size I guess I was looking it up in the break her talking. Average size average man seven point 40 yeah I I I saw that tuna but that seems small. Yeah I agree but it's I think it's only seems small because we usually talk in terms of football players in other ads are vague. Yeah like my home today it was like nine in two eighths or something and I thought. OK but that Russell Wilson's and by like cable and I'm talking about hand size of quarterbacks but anyway I was kidding if you wanna reaching into matters of buffalo. I mean you you can say that that's trivial thing I get it people can say were where were making big deals out of things but. When the weather gets cold you have to really grip the ball little bit better Tyrod Taylor has bigger hands actually. You know I had the it does matter and in colder weather cities that matters more especially matters in this year's draft because the Cleveland Browns of the number one. I I'll let you do the research I'm not gonna spend any time talking about the size of hands I just you know I just need to got to throw the football the guys that are open. I do when asked about Tyrod. Nothing really new yesterday right so so listen it's out gimme gimme your honest opinion. But you heard Sean McDermott multiple times yesterday right so. Do you think they have not made up their mind. What do you think they've made up their mind but they wanna see you know what's out there before they make it actual decision public. I think they've made up their mind I think that the it's somewhere between I think they made up their mind that they still want to explore options. But they'll bring him back and so is our policy allowed absorb at a rally to bring him back in. You know but but I think they still want to explore other options that means free agency that means trade possibilities. I agree I mean I was the in this morning and we talk to a yes I think that there should be some more trade buzz about Tyrod you've become I think that's. Legitimate possibility and report they're looking into it yeah I just wouldn't be surprised at all I think they should be looking into it if there in an activist he's got to bring back. I just think I I think. I I would find it hard to believe that they had all this time to evaluate watch all the state that they don't they don't know whether they think this guy's the right guy for the job or not but. You get out to the Indian we've talked about the south. You can talk to agents you'd you can talk you could've talked other teams about trade possibilities already anyway but now you can talk to agents you get a feel for the free agent market. There's a guy you like let's just play what if let's say they'd like Michael and and they did talk to clemens' agent get an idea of widger guy wanna play for us and you can. Get a better feel for what options are out there and then come back and say you know what. This guy's better than Tyrod no one's better than Tyrod and then you can make your mind up and make it public. Right they could do that you know doubt about it I still believe that there. Also factoring in a possible Ricans restructure his contract I really need he's not gonna stand up there and say that but I believe somewhere along mine has to be I just. And my heart of hearts I believe that it if he was the guy that you decided on he's going to be back and you do you do with Kyle Williams yesterday and you probably do well before you did yesterday which stellar but he. He's our guys back if they haven't done that yet tells me something's going on where you know you might not be so why is that what what are the options your watch why couldn't you. Yeah Collins coming back is interesting don't you think a minute it it yesterday it's. My first thought was for anybody thought this is gonna be rebuild that's not happening you would bring cowlings back and rebuild the roster he wouldn't wanna be back they're rebuilding the roster. Ice Busch but you can still. Putts certain guys like say Corey Graham. Or if you think it's best to move out Mary Williams because of injury issues you can still do that right even with cal coming back. Yeah you could there are candidates to be released I think iron Williams right now to me because of the talk guessing we talked about this guys I think he's. Really the top intriguing list is ours what they would view on the few designated in the post June 1 cut. He would save you over four million dollars on your cap and I think he goes beyond that do you wanna. Really put that young man out there in that situation and have that you know I. Analysts say liability legal sense also lightly just from him humanistic standpoint of what about their insane like looking as a measure the protect people from themselves that would be a situation like that India can you pay him that much money in reliant him to play. Next year and be awfully healthy I think that's an interest in a spot then. Then that might affect what you do with Corey Graham I can't carpenter is a guy we need to talk about it you know you'd save about I think two million next year on the cap if you. Released interpreter there's lots of ways here you could still shape a little bit of money off there could be some restructuring of the creek land. Huckabee at guys that could restructure his deal to move some money around after what. Assigning last year that did happen maybe Marcel if we could do that I don't know if he be willing but there are some ways still to give yourself a little more breathing. Would you do about Corey Graham sell how do you feel about him. And I say what would you do because any discussion about whether you you think it's time to move on from Corey Graham which would save you cap room. Not you have to factor in Aaron Williams if you move away from Corey Graham and you don't have Deron Williams now you completely re doing your safety spot. It's a really tough call because of that I think you who right now try to you bring back Corey Graham the late Steve because you are. You know you're sold tight against the stars personnel in the secondary and you need players you need bodies mean they had they had so many guys in and out of safety last year. Because of injuries Corey Graham really Julie Guy that's kind of the steady directory now he's an. He's a veteran. He only has one year left and his contract I know he's played inconsistent but what are your other options there in it especially if you. Don't have Darrent Williams mean look guys are playing Corey white last year James had a bullet in the years starts. Knee that those court which corner ahead of always sign with a month left in the season essentially Sergio Brown was plains of snaps at safety last year. That's unbelievable that that where they were so I think you have to think about you know what you have on the rosters easy to say get rid of the guys save money. Well I replacing them because the the options. Don't seem to. Just a great now when you look over that. And that the other thing about you know. That is there could be some guys that can wait it's OK or Coke or grammar now you know if we see that there's option every agency a majority matchup. He got generally rise maybe you're gonna say are you freaking kidding me actively he has brought that up to. Evenly and I pause for a moment to leave me my reaction go ahead. Giving the name first I think. I think that they might explore kick the tires and your current dock I would've said are you freaking crazy that we brought him up on the show yesterday. I would have even brought up would anybody consider taken of it'll take less money I wouldn't do it Revis at safety but. We brought up yesterday Sao I would've said you're crazy I just wouldn't do it might might might ship has Salinger or spurred by I don't think he was effective enough for me in a war and to bring him back. But he played a different system if you gentlemen Tom McDermott system he doesn't have to. Via tackler he doesn't have to put that where terrorists body look I have Medicare as either I agree with you and I think the bills let it go at the right time in his career no doubt but I'll say two things about number one. You know you put them as just a cover three ball hawking safety in the middle revealed he might do. He might be okay there might be able to play sixteen games and I think he actually his skill set fits in average is that the secondary coach noticed. Right so I. I just I don't think it would cost a lot. I'm just throwing out there and I'm not suggesting they should go get your spurt out Hussein. There might be guys out there now looking at the way this is going to be each constructed you might deal with that in for a lower number. Salad this he's in India to come by and we'll get to what's going on the come by today and just the moment but before that you go in before I get to that. So you heard again multiple interviews were Sean McDermott yesterday. And they grabbed an inning of interest at that you thought Karrie Annika did he was very close to the best. He was you know I think the air waves of was related things it stood out to me the most that he would not. I think it widgets are one on one interview to say if it was their decision he would put down that road it was really talked about your team decision you know that's interesting because we've talked a lot about. Those are what come back. But he does with a team doesn't want him back right I actually that's that that's actually. He talked to thus he kind of alluded to. Having LeSean McCoy back but he went right on PR pro football talk live on the set he said Shoppach what's going anywhere so we can put that to rest now for everybody out there. Was comical he's going to be back with a Buffalo Bills I didn't expect anything less there. City watch it he said is on schedule. No setbacks you know they expected to be ready to go when streak April's route we'll see what he can do. In the offseason and that of course you know the non commitment on Tyrod Taylor's just what's going to be hanging over this team for the next nine days. He was solid Marv. And one of the things Murphy asked him was who's calling plays on defense would be Leslie Frazier will it be him. And he said Leslie Frazier is going to call plays on defense. Is that surprising at all let a guy who was you know like Rex Ryan you know with his defense future gonna would have his mark on it and and then he eventually got his brother involved and Dennis Thurman was the coordinator but we surprise at all to hear that. Defensive minded. Coach gets his first head coaching job and then has the coordinator call the play. Not surprising but I wouldn't have been surprised. If he went the other way either like this is this guy let's remember. That has gone now and specifically targeted. Really experienced coaches to join him because I said is that because your first time head coach he said absolutely. He said I understand that I understand the position I'm in. I need guys around me you know that that are experience he said in. Obviously had the energy wanna do it as well in the Arab expert but. This is a guy we're talking about the understood if he gets I think that look I'm first time got up I could be wrapped up in where about defense play calls are gonna gain the management intentionally. One out and hired. Veteran coaches that he could rely on and give those duties to it like Leslie Frazier. He's gonna head coach obviously he's made defense coordinator this league he's the defense play caller caller in this league. That's why he got guys like that so we're not surprised at all and turn. What's happened and indeed today rather than a whole bunch of measurements. ARIAD him sizes coming in right now we also got the measurements as far as their heighten their weight and John Kaiser comes in at 64. 233 each risky 62 watts and 62 those are things we're going to be talking about bomb homes actually the shortest of all those guys four guys are talked about cars are too risky. Watson Holmes six to 225 that's about the same range they are all in. So that's a little bit adjusting and then. The running backs are gonna talk today little bit this afternoon and the offensive linemen are going to talk to you saw the measurements on the running backs yesterday the big news there was. Lettered for net wade an ad agency will be late and no I go ahead and economic 240 Lisovicz back forty. To pay back to try to here's the deal with a guy like that so. You know he's he acted there there's a misconception by some that the letter Boris some Brewster. B section pretty athletic and can move to get out in the open field he's got the speech but if he's at six he's at 240 he goes and runs a. It's a disappointing forty. I guarantee you he loses weight before pro he's gonna he's gonna have to he's gonna give it. 240 okay for him eighty's still it passed in the range where you expect in the past 240s not okay for him if he doesn't do that and then he's typical back. He sheds weight if that's the case so I think that's really interesting about what happened with the which the running back Chester paid a court order McCaffrey's one. Capitalist tool to say if I buy a 11202. It's about about hour we expect. Quarterbacks will they be talking to they do will they be doing interviews this week with the media. Tomorrow but quarterbacks and wide receivers will be going tomorrow Gergen a person right and I today by the way today Ross. Rossiter here from some more head coaches that infinitely and actually as soon as I get off with the guys here. I'm the head over there is it that you and I believe speaks at 10 AM so I'll be there for that here that. But I talent at LA chargers not San Diego. He messed up in his opening press conference okay I'll do that I'm Jewish you know trying to. I itself thank you will look for more recovers from Indianapolis. Solace here are AT&T hotline covering the NFL combine on WGR and that coverages brought you buy out that liquor when it's time to stock up. We'll save every day an outlet liquor. Yes side hand size is heights weights receivers are coming through. Mike Williams is over 63 if anybody wants to know. That's some of the stuff that's gone on to come by and today I'm telling you that. I can't I will answer the come by and it's just sometimes I just think we get way too carried away with some of the stuff in the National Football League. Go to come by media guide find out if you like him in the interview you've watched his tape you may be gone to some practices. I think the stuff that most of the stuff to come buying. Can I say it's just a bunch of baloney that bad. I just I think we just overplay this com buy stuff so much in terms of yeah importance of of shuttle times and hand size. And it. Well you know other than the day Shawn Watson today in the joked he hit every were every receiver. Not throwing against any defense. Well that's got to read really good routes against air. I mean it's as some of the stuff is really. They did they Billy. The emphasis on the come on in Macon and evaluate that's what it is here's my point. Making an evaluation on a player. Based on the come line I think is a major. Just name it's just overblown it's a waste of time. Tell me how he played in this games tell me how you look playing well they're gonna do their interviews that to me that's bags in me is the big part they're gonna talk to their coaches there and get to know the kind of guys they are and then I like and you know what McDermott and and to meet Jeremy. That's it. There if you were a play that's if you're worried about a quarterback. I do think there's something to hike mean I do think there's something to how tall is Tyrod how taller quarterbacks can't they see over the line. I don't get wrapped up as much in hand size but I do think there's something to hiked so I guess they're there's something to the measurements is certainly something to the medical's. I think the interviews to me is the most significant part. Of the Columbine and I I I heard Sean McDermott said Merck yesterday. That. You know with the interviews those are really important sometimes it's guys who have off the field issues and you wanna be able to talk to them face to face about their character and whether they have you know what happened with this off field issue. Other guys the interview was strictly about on field performances. Other guys you know he said something about how well put him under pressure we'll see how they handle certain questions and certain things. In our interview process I agree on the interviews I just think the drills and to some extent the measurements and some of the stuff we see. I don't know why you put any value and in weather tires runs good against air and Indianapolis. If you would be able to see. Mean different teams are gonna respect different types of routes West Coast offense vs. What every yeah he's gonna have a lot of different things so. I want and how does the player prepare himself the come on is in better shape that he was in college a look at this guy relieved OK so lettered for net right what do you do in common and at 240 here we are well most he wants to play at that weight. Right speed is is important you wanna know shuttle drill of if I'm starting Sammy Watkins and I only watched him have 57% of his throws be screen passes. I'm I wanna say like Aaron I wanna see him wanna I wanna seem on the field running NFL routes and corona CA quarterback. I don't it's it was worthless they wouldn't do it. Your eggs it was worthless I know that why would they do it. I just think we over I think we overemphasize some of the stuff that scouts have to do in the way you prepare for draft. Honestly I just need to secure the guy make plays. And examined football games. And India and and go look at his practices during the season how does he do one run in his routes is he catching the football what is he doing during games that you take plays off. Does he knows assignments in football games is route is coverages is blocking schemes all that stuff. I I think that puts so much stock in practices and games and and much less stock in this stuff maybe. If I like a guy probably you know pro days may be a go to our pro day NC a lot I I think too much is put in to Prodi's two I'd put every a lot of my evaluation. His practice his game tape his interview with me. And if I really like a guy I bring him to the facility right really get to know this guy with Mike coaches overtime dim and that's what I would base my draft evaluation on. The comet stuff I think is just window dressing for me. I think we say that is we're not actually the ones evaluating based on the combined with the ones and evaluate based on the games now. That to me that's what matters but okay I understand I'm not saying it should ever mean I wish I don't think it should. Okay how about it's it's a layer it's like analytics it's a layer in your decision making. Yeah course okay by I think spot but my problem is I think. At least how it's projected by the media maybe I'm wrong because this is the media putting this stuff about through whatever sources they have it should be a layer but I think. I feel like it carries too much weight when it comes to you could almost change your opinion on employer based on. His draft stock could rise his draft stock could plummet based on what happens on the field during come on work outs in Indianapolis to me. That's too much emphasis put on the come by and make it part of the overall evaluation process. That's fine it's another piece of information in my overall evaluation of all these players. That I would be fine with ideas that pickle report. They weren't. 8030550. Join us 88550 to 550 you can join us on the bills and join us on the sabres. I will tell you that I damage to do here. Having Gonzales about the combined I damaged dear what is being said about the quarterbacks and you know. What you hear from scouts how you know how these guys handled the interview processes. I said that's why said Sao one of the quarterbacks talking I do wanna hear what these guys have to say and how they answer questions and how to deal with comedian all the stuff because I'm gonna hold out hope. The bill's gonna draft a quarterback this year to meet at. We're we can talk receiver we can talk safety we talked linebacker all the positions of need. But if I'm still most interest today in the quarterback position in Indianapolis what do these guys say and what you hear and I actually was interested in how polished Robiskie. Is he six won easy 62. You know I will I was hinged at the height to these guys because I do think I'd matters when it comes to the quarterback and I can get my mind off quarterback. I'll also respectfully disagree with cell that hand size matters. I do not who you aren't on the come line. We're not talking about one in all things equal one guy has nine in three Korean chains in the guys went four inches then it's an issue. But pat my homes came in at nine in two way too soon so that small. And too risky is 94 rates and that's okay well in Watson is nine in six states I do not believe hand size. Given every a fine if everything else is the same I guess. It but at the how often is everything else the same. Like you said like the average size for for a male hand to seven point four well Holmes is nine point two right nine into a such a thing. But Russell Wilson I read this earlier today Russell Wilson was 1010 and a quarter. So all these guys have smaller hands and Russell Wilson. I don't think that means anything in terms of you know I'm not drafting and these guys they have in sizes in the nine ranger while my quarterback depth and size over ten. That's right I I don't I know this is the public discussion and all that honestly. And how many more times as a guy with smaller hands fumble in the National Football League some against size I need I need numbers from the Tony thirteen draft class the bill so they like DJ manuals ten point 38 that's actually a very big tent. Yeah but he can't throw the ball they can't find open receivers. So I need I would need some and give me hard numbers like I want I want this fix I want studies that show quarterbacks and the quarterbacks with a smaller hands. Fumble. Ten times more than the guys with the larger hands in the National Football League and then if you can show me that okay I'll give you discuss out I'll buy into your discussion of audience about the draft. Class portals Bridgewater car. Ready. There ago hand size for the biggest hand size of that class was Logan Thomas ten point eight. Then keep winning and has been ten Stephen Moore is Jeff Matthews. AJ McCarron all at 1010 chance. Bat just under that nine and change Todd Boyd nine point 625. Zach met Bloomberg nine point 75. Getting smaller here in nine point 25 I was on a nine point 31 bore holes. Nine point 25. Bridgewater. Nine point 25 drop below. Nine point 125. Derek Karr nice tuna catch her pitch. I do finally found a guy on the list to actually small and I was a small stand of all those name is your guess is the best quarterback far everybody you just read on that list. And do another draft class if you want I saw it I think I I was again men's sell men's Ellis nine and 38 I was looking at some of them this morning. Just entertain myself now that's right and mean Derek Karr. Right I don't know how many times their car fumbles so far in his hand size are again and again from 2012. 2012 his cousins full RG three. Andrew locking your luck has a ten. Mosques while the 97 eights Wilson tenn and a quarter Kirk cousins 97 eights. Who cares who send old Sam Arnold and surveying the out. How's your brain now Kenya Kenya Reid's tenure process Kenya throw in the gate it it's. The position is the position for a brain. That's what it is it's can you accurately throw up to the spot your brain quickly processes the ball past the B. I also that's why I give credence again to the interview process at the very least you know how does the quarterback candle stuff on the board can can he. What's his recall on plays well you know how does he deceived understand everything you're trying to get across to him. I'm a group home boy I wish I could remember the story it was about Andrew Luck. And it was about. You know almost think I should just look this up in the break to remedy Andrew Luck story about his recall. His draft year and how. Maybe it was even at Stanford how they'd they would put plays up on the board and he would just. In moments is that everything memorized total recall everything they were trying to do how I mean head at all. Locked down. Today and the great like people were raving about this guy's football smarts when it came to his ability to understand plays and to remember everything that had to be done and every single play that was drawn up. He was outstanding with that recall. Like that that to me is something to talk about and that to me as part of the interview process how does this guy do in terms of his knowledge of the game did you know what you're trying to tell him to do. That's important and size I just I don't know when I'm trying to find their cars fumbles that lets see I hear you go to their car ten fumbles and 2014. Ten fumbles and 20155. Fumbles and twenty sixteenths and don't you don't know. Crit text or asks why do they do graduates for rates six states. That would be because there are some with three eights and five eighths and summoning tournaments I was nine and three eighths. They just things I'm excited to know now that I didn't know before the show started this morning. 8030550. Join us 888550 to 550 south that the comment for the rest of the week. He will have coverage. On the air on WGR. And on our website at WGR 550 dot com. I'm not sure what the expansion draft what it had to play in this but this is the quiet this trade deadline since I've been around we do have an expansion draft coming I would say that. Is that a big part plans. Tim Murray yesterday at the press conference after no traits he'll join Mike shall for the bulldogs tonight. Howard you occasionally on the show make up words right. Kind of a joke like you make up the words are really a joke and I I just. Well I really crush English language today driving in on W and I heard someone use the word free anticipate. Which is something I would use to June 3 anticipate there's the wow that is really looking man you would've anticipated before leaving you anticipate right you free anticipate something I kind of like that I think you should be worked I think I'd actually like that I do need you to invent to work I need society to invent to work for me what's the definition of the word on the definition of the word is. Finished a book on tape. I've done I've had in the last two weeks I was sick last week so Trevor no was book born a crime. And soccer comics. IE. Read these two books I didn't read these two books I had these books. And read to me. And any time I wanna talk about it. I'm very uncomfortable saying oh yeah I just read a sock economics I didn't read it I got it. Yeah I just audio soccer not X I just finished ought yellowing soccer comics are right. I don't mind that because it's oral taught it's audio via and you finish the process of hearing it so you just finished on dealing soccer not X. There is all I'm pretty sure there's no such word as audio code oral A you are think. I think how or. Audio got to know a lot of syllables there. There's not an audio and the nets really action word and just very uncomfortable talking on exit is a good sports book I would recommend it to. And you and likes management and you know sold like. Economics of sports and things like that it's an older book you know I've never ever. Don and audio book a book on tape now now and I don't know what I'm up a lot about ten now I never. First off I am old school I I do love sitting down I read books I read tons of books I love sitting down just relaxing turning the page is reading the book. IA. I'm not sure I mean if I devote the time to sit and read the book you would be devoting the time to sit and listen to the audio version of you look terror through audio books both slot less lifting for me you can do while driving right mean that's does that when you look at and a drive anywhere I tried to. You know Rochus who ordinarily when I'm driving so it into work every day evening. Knock out a chapter audio books flied out to Arizona next in the later in the model for I would actually go into a trap that for the the long plane trip it's cheaper. I'm I'm a big. I'm become ever gonna say Howell is their like a timeframe for how long it may you re the 200 page book a quarter page book depends on the book. He hears nothing I can bring a few. You can just like podcast you can listen to them it. More than the regular speed you download these on your phone yes OK yes soul okay Trevor no was book born a crime. Is. Over the course of the book like how long would it take you to listen to it I don't know maybe nine hours. Twelve hours okay and that's what if you put it that one and a half speed. That cuts that much time off candidly digitally speeds it up the talking a little bit faster. In some people can go all the way to double speed in triple speed could not like I can't do I wouldn't registered the material and I'm listening I can't do that either with with podcasts. But okay or Trevor no law. Is a buyout at regular speed of eight hours and 44 minutes. You crank right through it and he'd like by the way he narrates it to get the lake he tells you his story which are fun to be. Interest bearing trees big important South Africa and his whole life good book font book. And now. Yeah books on tape so that is a well it's great but I just I feel very uncomfortable saying I read it. Well written. OK so it's almost like fake reading you've got to have some word that that creates a fake reading term. Hey today make a month cassette for my Sony Walkman cassette player with my headphones circa 1984. Battle to be make new books on cassette oh no she wouldn't think so that's are at the price that they'll make cars anymore with cassette players and read the price stopped at 1520 years ago second part of this is if you read a lot of books people would say your very your well Rhett. Right all of his very well read individual elects to read book a venue like two leather bound books I'm if I listened to. Seven the audio books in a year you know well read. God is not like the information you are the lazy as well read person in the not too lazy lazy idiots working for adoptive. Now. It's much more productive to listen to country. Productive you know. I mean while riding to get our shortstop like you do and what I Andre and and bills and yes why yes yes yes and yes I wouldn't do that clean the kitchen and laundry mile long you've got headphones on your being productive use music for that when I wanna if I'm. If I'm listening to a book I would equate it for me I would or equated to reading a book which means. Gimme a chair on the back deck leave me alone I'm listening to this book to that's not being productive. But that's the whole point of Reading a book I'm not supposed to be productive when I'm reading the books I would ought to be productive when I'm I'm slowly any it I'm Selena for the information. I used music when I mow the lawn do chores whatever. When I used to walk the dog and that's all music territory for me reading a book would be lane and that I'm listening to the book here's couple texts. Listen to. The IR listens to those are real words. I feared Taylor says we should call you your ear to book and sort of read a book. You know okay Texas as you'd be well audio in your world as well audio book a book is being. A rip off I'm reading there's got to be some way to work and reading but not the full extent of the of the couple more texts texts are so I'm I'm blind and listen to a lot of audio books of practice you can listen. Two halftime speed no problem I did find got to be the going from one speed to one point 25. I can get up to one point five. And Mears cranking out this book is just a faster pace of the region and I don't know I wonder how fast I would go for it be too fast for me and there's another text here some people like me learn better while listening rather than Renault retention yes. And he gets a good point to have your reading of books have to remember. Whatever if it's inspirational efforts biographical Ameen ya your presidential history buff if you. Gillick podcasts off anyway that's our son economics who's elected miss just finished it I wonder right I wonder because it's not like when I read a book. I don't go back and re read a paragraph or sentence to retain it I mean I just read it I go through it. I don't necessary when I read about it don't necessarily read at all for remembering every single portion. All of the entire story just get a general storyline and remembered but yeah retention never thought about that I'd Eddie public into that you have any must read sports books. You know lots. This should I not say this on the air while trying not to read sports book now I'm because I reads. I like reading books that have nothing to do with sports. Grisham I mean I've got my favorite ought loved John Grisham. Love David Ball dodging. Michael Connelly the Lincoln lore books that they're there are guys I like Tom Clancy I like. Certain types of authors in certain types of books when I read. It's it's my escape from sports replenish sports you know every I know I I do have the occasional sports book. But I do less sports reading view I think you read a lot of forced. I don't always read sports. Looks no but I have read it a several lines you know the ones I suggest everyone that this is the station Wannstedt. And just kind of getting in on a lot of that stuff is the game plan somehow sometimes actually that's how I get to a sports book three Calista low crosses yup game plan. I'm planning article is all stop the Pat Kirwan the essential Smart football game plan. The story of over the attic. Radical approach to game day decision making in the NFL that the GM is a book about the giants winning the Super Bowl that I liked a lot yeah when nine Jerry Reese put together that team after pretty course you like that yep picked out of an airport because I had a flight great great book. So deserve patriot way book I probably ought traditions in order patron wave books one of them is called spy gate I think I'll hunt you can read all about how they cheated that's a that's a book itself you know well audio to all you I kidding about that book that's. That book is out there. We get together wrote on the air. You want to know because it'll just make me angry group. That's out there this is all good listening on the flight to Arizona if I actually listen to the patriot way and the flight to Arizona. I might want to John about the plane and that's probably a bad thing I don't think I wanna do that. So yeah. Love it love books on tape room I'm just it's. Seemed to be like the old nerdy thing to do when I was eleven and now it's all the cool hot mess I never thought. I just I never thought about like I said this is me just be and stupid old school me. I am you know. Yet another dip stream you and on Sunday morning I look forward to get the newspaper out of the mailbox sitting down and and just physically opening the newspaper. And I look forward to you never used it now with a most of Watson to VPL draft board but if you look if you're looking for anything you've briefed on your phone or on under tablet I'm still. Still have that old school part of me that you know likes just opening the newspaper relaxing and read in the paper not always the most is sometimes your pressured into the most is small society and certainly people wanna brunch people wanna brunch all the time. Bitterly for but the friends what time I mean you peels on most of today and it's later in the day Saturday and Sunday at their time. Right yes sure it's 8:30 AM key spot which brings me to another thing 2:30 PM in London it's okay is this what it's like live on the West Coast. Is that why I like watching soccer because it's on all day and I'm never up late listening to watching games I get up early 'cause of this job. And at 7 AM. This game on. Is this player living on the West Coast we wake up and there's football on at 10 AM AM and then the last game ends and you just still have what ever you wanna do -- night the last game was and while you want to night game the last game on Sunday with and about 830 your time couple yeah. Is full of a couple hours to just do everything like I might like the West Coast if this is what it's like down the amount of soccer that I watch how its always on on the weekends say guess what the NBA finals begin at six. PM yeah up at 9 PM here. Finals games always started nine of those human here they do not go out there at 6 o'clock. Stanley Cup NBA finals. NCAA basketball game begins at what five know what was it that's at 9 o'clock ticker all those games it's been nine the tipping in your dinner hour west. That was complete when we are an Arizona couple years ago and I was you know I'd gone against senator watch for the sabres were doing. I don't travel out west that much but when we were in Phoenix. There was there was really a lot to be said for knowing the finals of all the games for being able to see everything. And have you know have the savers are playing. At 4 o'clock my time here in Phoenix credit and you know late games finger quotes late games are done at ten. This guy is that there really it's as opposed gay you know you go to bed how many times you don't see the end of a national championship game because you know what what was the job. College football title game went past midnight tonight was your state so our role late imagine that like her that things over like 915 year time. This is for that didn't really this whole why you might be a little surely not sure that I want football at like seven or 8 AM. But West Coast that would make life a lot easier. What's coming up extends a sports Ari come on Nixon's were to get the investigators on the way at 10 o'clock the sabres and coyotes tonight so we can now. And we could. Can inspire them for old time's sake we don't wanna do that though we don't want well actually you know doesn't win and I've I was you can bring up because we talked about the schedule. Tampa would you say to apple was now they're on the run chairman seven. 72117. Wanted to Tampa 71 and two I believe in the last ten games this game. Is like them they're not the sabres have lost four straight winless in four this is the game. Like the most winnable game Tampa's hot they're Saturday. Then you go to Pittsburgh. Coleman home with the lawlessness after you play the flyers you wanna talk about possibly be and in like a ten game slide show or is it this is the game at sharks right at kings have to act docs. You lose this game in Detroit and Pittsburgh and Toronto what has Florida sorry what just raised about wheels you still have three games against the Blue Jackets this month. They said two wheels are off third one might be loose that this type game if you don't win tonight when we might be awhile. By the way you gotta vote today I did have a scenario until I was gonna had to pick the bills today I had. I did have an hour away really not to do it that's funny when we get back I want you to predict the final sabres schedule. We we've done the what it would take to get banned in the playoffs let's do what would it take to get the coach fired before the end of the year. What record it would take it I'll pull the schedule. Breaking sports news bears first here. GR Sports Radio fine. The thoughts. Extend a sport brought Q buys sunbeam service experts heating and cooling call 1866. Experts aren't so on the sabres. To make eight to get a 50% shot at the playoffs hold on them on the other way to. 143. And two. I'm gonna say forget it it's reportedly gonna forget it three. And 22626. And eleven and so 143 into would be. From the unexpected bonus of what that's for better than 50% chance of the playoffs. For a better than 50% chance at last in the conference. 60611. And two. I can with the schedule they have left that got to be he's actually see that happening just sticks very difficult and a 611 into the day. Their their drop and pretty fast right now the three points ahead of Detroit for last the scene did their most likely to get. Is to finish 123456. From the bottom. But they're very much in striking range of fourth from the bottom look at the schedule in the break granted the sabres are 22 if you go overall standings they're 22. Nineteen games left only two of the nineteen are against teams behind them. So seventeen of the remaining nineteen games are against teams that have more points right now that the sabres. Seven are currently in the top ten in the standings it is a very difficult schedules so. How many wins Jeremy. At a nineteen. I can see him sit with like only six or seven wins out of this stretch because of the schedule which includes the West Coast trip. Three I would say three games right up three games against Columbus. You've got to play Pittsburgh a couple of times. It's. It is next to their schedule the rest of the season so. Ike I don't think they'll maintain a 500 pace and I think they'll be a few games below 500 because of the scheduled. When it's all said and done on any teams finish behind the sabres in the standings Arizona and Colorado definitely do. Your four points up on 20s28. How many teams finish. I had the sabres I'm sorry in behind the sabres. They're 22 do you think the thing to finish I think they can drop like three or four slots at least like 2546. Term. On regulation wins regulation and overtime wins are actually OK they have more. Maybe as many as Florida let my. Regulation overtime wins and on like Detroit way behind them Carolina New Jersey behind them Arizona Colorado. So I worry I worry about how to play defensively I worry about the number of shots they're giving up I worry about the opposition they're playing will there be any. Wilting give up. In them I don't expect last year the first year at files not the kinda on something and now this year they're you know there the rolling at the end now they're limping to the end with nineteen games lefty and it's one thing to watch I the only thing I would say is unless there is a concerted effort to get the coach fired. I wouldn't expect to see I give up wilting what happy for them the rest of the season investigators are coming up next back we do tomorrow morning at six a WGR.
