Topic god the great all the guys are very competitive our guys have success. Gonna have a successful career and fell everywhere is hard everyone is you know motivated you got. And then that franchise. Clemson quarterback Sean watts and Howard Jerry Britain we get a call that I wanna. Think of a couple things fun on the bills and free agency and the plan of attack. There once he'd once we get to the Tyrod decision what becomes the next big discussion where would you draft one should they draft one quarterback. Yet because I mean obviously that conversation is out there but we can't really talk about that until we know. Is Taylor on the roster yet Taylor's not on the roster that it obviously returns immediately to. Who's quarterback do you think there's still let me John hang on 12 and is make a Johns on hold at amusement one quick point. So I mentioned you know I screwed up a whole deadline thing with Tyrod it's Saturday at fort not Friday at four. South tweeted out a confirmation on that yards for pest dot com you follow you bring them upon on the show on Twitter. So yards for pass tweeted it to the news about Tyrod for Saturday just a little over four days until we find out of the bills are going to play win the game. Or if its tanker pull lose a 2017. On the it has to be one yeah I don't think there's a tanker pull those it's when he seventeen I really don't if they walk away from tyra I still wouldn't think. The coach wouldn't come out and said Shawn McCoy is not going anywhere and I think they mind their busy releasing more than. You know the five guys they released yesterday they don't lock in some big names off the roster. I just I am not expecting tech blues even if they walk away from tyrants contract. I'll let you know as soon as I know McCormack is if they walk away from Tyrod and its card dealt. I think it's much more likely to be. Tank tanker blew not you're right it's probably no way tank yeah tank means take your medicine and and know you're going to be bad I think they're gonna try to find anywhere they can be good. Yeah I think he'd start you start getting rid of guys you know you'd look at. Which we know that I didn't do it look at contracts like Eric Gordon he's make it over seven you would've brought how Williams back I well I shouldn't say that. I think they I have a lot of sock in his leader I really an actor got a tank and go young you'd want a guy like that. To show the young guys how to go about right anyway right the sabres right when they tanked they had veteran leaders yet. But you you could look at air would make it over seven million on the cap next year. You can get rid of him and clear out three million. And you really can't do anything regardless I mean you wouldn't release and now this too much dead money but. Why why would you keep Charles clay. You look at and I mean Graham would be gone Williams Aron winter begun they might anyway but for sure they'd both be gone. You'd start looking around at some of the older guys in the bigger contracts and start moving some of them out. To clear out more cap space and then make you know trade down get more draft picks I don't expect. Tank was about this and Brian sorrow quickly and Brian Hoyer freeagent. You said yes he has in his last seventeen games with the Texans in the Bayer's. Yes Tony five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Seventeen game point by a touchdown seven interceptions. 4000 yards. In the seventies is very good number and he was five and four with Houston having a terrible playoff game was won in 40 Chicago. But seven and six with Cleveland before that was twelve touchdowns thirteen picks. He managed the game was Brian Hoyer and arrested by New England right now. So he knows the gateway I just think that that's a decent idea why did why would the bears just. Bring back Brian Hoyer instead of fifteen million dollars look like one night I mean I would think Brian or is gonna get fifteen million dollars but then again I didn't think Mike what do we get fifteen million dollars. John and alma you're on WG on the sets of being speculated. Correct me if I'm wrong but. It Tyrod Taylor honored correct. This year Ehrlich runner out there and maybe. Until some I I over the proper side. Item and all last year and I act. It wasn't that bad at it here. It wasn't quite 900000 it was four million maybe two million and for what incentives yes there was. Much cheaper he would have been a free agent in which case. The bit that the conversation would be different incidents thinking about picking up the option the bills would be negotiating and or. Thinking about the franchise of the non exclusive franchise or the transition tag. I'm Taylor because he BA UFA. Heed the close search every other team being able to bid on him in the bill would have it that still the decision but they would have a different decision. Act. Pretty whoever made that it and give them more money. Up front in order be stuck with that decision later I. You know I don't dog eat outsiders don't think that that was a very Smart move. Nine and most of league agrees with you mean during the com nine you're hearing you know depending on which reporter you'd listen to what storage agreed you'd hear talk around the league that. Most purely don't think the bills will just pick up but just flat out pick up the option if Tyrod packets in some former restructure because. It even though the six that cap number this year is not terrible it's fifteen point nine minutes quarterbacks go. That's not out of whack for quarterback. But it's it's dead money in guaranteed money and all the things that you know here's 3030 million guaranteed to pick up the option. There's a lot of stuff that's not good about that contract going forward. But dom was gonna ask you. I was gonna be upset about tyrants contract Al yeah it even if they walk away. I still don't think it's tank I just don't think it's tank oppose I don't think they wield the decision would be. Hard dale Jones is gonna be the guy we're going with. I think there would go find a guy on the market you want whatever whoever gets player. We've gone through the list the bills would not be tanking I think they would make a decision that for whatever reason. We're not going forward Tyrod his performance the contract he won't restructured to what we want so whatever it hits. But I don't think they would then turn and go we're gonna put second year pro card bill Jones and his starting quarterback. What are you gonna have the hype and I guess you can find a veteran to hold the clipboard behind them. Am gonna go we're we're gonna go tank I don't think so I think they would just try and find the best quarterback that can out there fools. Ximian if he's traded. Hoyer of whatever and say here's our guy. He's got to manage the game. We still have LeSean McCoy. We slow steady locked in Suisse Charles clay we are going to get a another receiver for short not to in the draft or through free agency. And there will redo our secondary a little bit step funds probably gonna walk figure out that corner is one maybe two new starters at safety. And there's director just gonna proceeding trying to win as many games in 2017. I don't expect to make of clues at all even if Tyrod to not hear next season. I like Al Shawn Jeffrey after the bill yet he's still there or not he's going to be get like fifteen billion dollars to spend the money about. As a receiver I think he has been underrated for his entire Chicago Korea because he start in Chicago with you know. Cutler and whoever else the employer that is had good stats but he has been on a bad team I think there are some there are if the bills decide they have a crying need at wide receiver. And if the bills decide to go one free agency is sure he's not coming here. I wouldn't think DeSean Jackson would give the time a day and about the branding cook's idea that patriots for pursuing a trade for the grander hooks offer a. What were they offerings the thirty sept 32 pick I forget what it was yeah. They were pursuing a trick for brand because they're our guys on the market I like. An old shall brought up Cordero Paterson. Kenny stills in Miami. He's he's he's fast he's a downfield threat. He's a guy that I would love to go after the bills could could you convince him to come here there are few guys on the market you can that they can go after the question is. Are they coming here while the quarterback and what the offense gonna there's there's a strategy question to. Branding Koch's with the patriots. I mean. Would be. He's awesome with Drew Brees you know he be phenomenal that Patriots offense. What kind of receiver should the bills want to come I think it's the kind they should want is also on Jaffray and not a guy like Brandon cooks are not a guy like. But let's be honest. You want so much as big guy win like when that guy win battles and you don't you draft Mike Williams well because so far. What is Tyrod Taylor do he throws to receivers that turn around and catch the ball right or maybe some jump balls or some deep balls but it. Window throws throws over the middle throws to receivers that are on the Ron. For yards after catch him in the bills' offense the last two years you wanna say it's the offense you wanna say it's the quarterback you can have either one it's not existed. They don't throw recorder and start they don't throw it receivers that are running. Well. There there are yards after catch is terrible there were 31 in the NFL in yards after catch last year in yards per per reception they just awful. So if I'm gonna go seek or receiver. If I bring back Tyrod yeah that changes the kind of receiver that I have one that is special as special as Asian as you know. Breaking open. Lateral Lee and catching the ball on the wrong in making guys miss the guys skills are kind of wasted in this in at least in the past offense that they've had because. They don't really use that kind of receiver. There's couple big names I'll bring up one I think if you're looking for that guy there's no way I I don't think the bills would. Go after all Shawn Jeffrey because I don't think they wanna spend that kind of money on a receiver. I'm positive they wouldn't wanna spend that money on a receiver. Not when you have to give out a big contract to Sammy Watkins down the road and two I don't know while she files and Jeffrey just languished in Chicago I'm not sure wide wanna come here anyway. So I think Mike Williams if you wanna go in and draft a guy like Williams isn't a burden of he's a big guy who wins 5050 throws. That's what he's all about great hands body control. Leaping ability gonna win a bit will will win battles for footballs for you. That's a guy who would fit I think very well the only thing I'll bring up about still Sinise ease it a deep threat. What he's averaged averaged over seventeen yards a catch last season he's a big bomb play kind of guy. If tie rods back remember he had really good success two years ago on that throw with Sammy Watkins when Sammy was healthy for. All but two or three games was in the lineup on a regular basis the end Tyrod Taylor developed a great chemistry in terms of the deep ball the explosive plays downfield so. I can get Tyrod back to doing that may maybe that's were the injuries for people call up and say hey guys you're unfair to Tyrod. You know who was he throwing the ball too well is still had people in the NFL and receivers ever getting open and he didn't get in the football. But it wanna make a point maybe Tyrod goes. To throwing downfield because he would have guys legitimate threats are to get down there like Sammy. Like a guy like Kenny stills and then he would the deep ball would be back in the office site I'd bring that up because. I sought Tyrod and that. And last season he didn't. Probably because of Sammy not being out there more than anything else would you get those guys back up again maybe tyrant returns to that four point two years ago. I I think you know I I would sell on this when they'd they don't have a lot of free agents face to meet. I would really be looking at the secondary I'd be looking for sure I'd be looking at one safety. I think whether you what do you release Deron Williams or you bring him back he's got years left on his contract. I think you have to operate with a philosophy of you don't expect Deron Williams to play. You you can't bank on him playing sixteen games because of what we've seen the last two years. I'd like to the bills go out asking if Tony Jefferson as the top safety out there he's not gonna get Eric Berry money. There's they're talking 68 million dollars a year okay. Eric Williams last extension was I think around six or seven million on the average go get Tony Jefferson I'd like to the village she's crazy to get safety taking care of at least one guy. And then if you want you can use the draft to get another safety the draft is so deep at wide receiver you can get a guy there. To me that would be the first thought I'd go to and I'd I'd like to see them do something and offensive tackle like ideas creates huge trying to explore. If you could find a starter at right tackle I do some my free agency money to do that from a mile offensive line I've got the draft to take care wide receiver embargo right. Cornerback cute they're talking about this. One of the guys Jeremiah Mike may axe somebody said it's the deepest quarterback drafted ten years. So you can go find another quarterback in the draft to put in there since you know going to be down. But you're down Roby Coleman and you're probably gonna be down to which. The agency yesterday the story that Deion Sanders told the outcome line top minds over. So all wrapped up all the interviews have happened cells back every bit of coverage you want is our website so the com lines over Deion Sanders told a story. Yesterday I believe. Rudy tell the story on outsource it properly but anyway okay. Current giants quarterback cornerback Eli apple reach weeded Deion Sanders quote. And the quotas this that the giants. Back when Dion was going to be drafted and Sanders says it was in the giants room they sat me down the gave me a thick book. Thicker than a full during the interview at the during the interview get thicker than a phone book. I said there was this and they said this is our test that we give all players home and I said Wednesday on speaking I said. Excuse me what picked you have in the draft. They said tenth pick. The onset of the Gama what I thought I got time for this it's funny and he left it. As a I know it's a job you. But I would be soul I would want to get up and go about your sorry guys. I've not taken this it's such a good story 110 I'm not to be around I don't got time for this year that is always great amazing let's get. Just amazing but it they had like a top three pick he he would have stayed and I would love to be either way said to them. Are you kidding me with this come on about a year I hope that. I hope that sports goes more towards. Former players telling their stories like this like. At the ropes to the rose to mart Aybar on the we had turned into those guys tell a lot of stories this kind of fun. Last night I caught a little bit of pacers hornets got you don't they did with that it was a players only broadcast. Now what that means is everybody on the broadcast there were no broadcaster near misses only players cut. I forget with a three man crew was it was Brent Barry. And two other guys I forget which guys who was Dennis Scott was their sideline reporter cut but before the game. The pregame show was this little segment that I don't all they've done it before anyone can text or tweak the you've seen this before. The pregame segment was called players only. It was. Kevin Garnett. Isiah Thomas Chris Webber pairing Davis Chris Bosh. Not exaggerated here. Sitting in the back of a boss. Just got to shoot the breeze just talking about the game yeah. Just putt just tell they're just telling their story formal sad note the hotel all they're telling stories they're cracking jokes they're talking about what it was like a eyes action they'll told a story about a teammate Isaiah Thomas told the store about Mark McGwire may be. And bosh talked about Udonis Haslem. And take over and over it was these guys talking about their teammates that were under appreciated and telling. But really revealing stories about the bond. And for box it was about Udonis Haslem who. Had to go in and fill in for box when he headed abdominal tear in the playoffs and just to see these guys telling stories up Baron Davis has Turbo plane would Derrick Coleman and how. It's garbage time during a game and Steve Kerr. It's a three Coleman stairs and down to the let him get another three. Incur hits another three and Coleman says again like don't you dare let him get another three and bear names like this garbage time and who cares. And I won't ruin the whole story that over and over again these guys are just. You don't shoot the breeze literally in the back of a boss right and it was the best pregame show I've ever seen. Because it wasn't about like you know what are the keys to victory tonight keep my out of the paint it was something I would want to watch. Like tonight NBC sports network. Sabres and flyers rights that you want Roenick in Milbury on the broadcast what you see on the intermission report you know what you're gonna see going to be keys John Bender Roenick puddles very got to get pucks to the net a regular on highlight they got to get some big saves here are they wanting I don't around the league this team's gotta gotta get some intensity they got to get something. You'll be selected out of that standard fare every single night it's the same intermission report from those guys. It be sold much better if they just decided to bring in six hockey players. Don't even talk about this game. Just talk about whatever you want roundtable of downward cloture vote that that. Players only the India OK got to go one text the NBA's trying this once a week are all you know what I cut my first review it's fantastic. As is usually the case the NBA's ahead of almost every other league in the way that they present themselves at the way that at. It was great so PC the players only broadcast it to ten minutes the thought it was tons of plotted and talking all about the game that night it was just. Appreciate it or five guys on a bus talking about they're too because I'm trying to think if like ESPN's ever done anything like this but I don't think. But even like that the the coaches get in together for the game cast but they're still talking about the game they're not necessarily only. Talk about other like just swapping stories all night but it's the concept of having. People in the business sit around and well that was the pre game without the actual broadcast that you know they're worried about it sure yup yup with him and the other thing that you concealing Dennis Scott to the sideline interviews in the business got. And he interviewed first on nickel Nicholas Batum with the or somebody before then I forget who will what do ban all Paul George. And the interviews. Lake. You get the sense that the athlete is much more. Willing. To just talk him into just beat because because another players and older players tea so you see Dennis Scott you think like you know I know. I don't him went a little more comfortable little more laid backs and I thought it was great. First Texas aren't you guys broadcaster should replace you with former athletes in some cases yes sir yeah yeah I mean they're different they're different jobs in different job requirements I think I think honesty when it comes it's a play by play. I mean we both do that too and I and I can tell you there's a certain value to us you know I love my camera my camera too great storyteller but. In terms of actually a television game you could probably you've got sure you get away without having a formal play by play guy because television sports over the years has become very conversational. It is about so and so throws the pitch so and throws you know here's the hit here's wished the three point shot. Here's the face off it's more about just kind of conversing about the same as it's being played out is the thing I I like the least about. The NFL broadcasts. Is that they treat every few were like it's your first game ever that more for traditional play every single game is your first game ever well of course you know you don't wanna get the third and long here right yeah every single person watching right knows that. And yet they've got to talk like it's your first game ever. It's it's just you know no no one's ever doing a poor job you know which are gonna see this year if the bills go with Tyrod Taylor. Every broadcast this year will be about Taylor's you know what I gotta be honest guys and he's in a great situation now Rick Dennis in these guys are he's gonna take tail. You know what's gonna happen you know exactly what's gonna be said. They would never say I think this quarterback is mismatch for this offense instead everything's going great now that's not that's a pregame discussion it's over it's a pre you know that's not that's not in game thing they'd bring up you know that's that's what. Game you know. ESPN or NFL network will talk about that at 10 AM. But once the broadcast starts that's not with CBS everybody or 1 o'clock everybody's wonderful everybody's great couple text on this is is from Jeff. I have so much more fun listening to players about other players the non spouting off cliches about the game the NBA's way ahead of the curve on this and NHL NFL. Way behind the NBA loves personality. And the other sports don't. And I think that's right. I think that's very true. Well that the the big NBA is more prone to trying things right I think the NHL as its. Way down at the bottom of the list of leagues that are open to different ideas I think they're very traditional even. We we would mock up about a number of things but broadcast their extremely traditional this is the format. This is how we do it this is how the game goes this is how the pre game goes this is how the animation goes. And they're not really open to new ideas where is the NBA is open to trying different things look there are taught your right I'd Wear and Kregg remain Andrew Peter start telling stories. I it's great I love that stuff I love listen those guys talk about that stuff in Marty in there it's it's it's a great lesson. And I think when NBC sports network again because I just think conducive to really. And just on the big give it's very cook I don't think they give if you were anything that the closest thing they have the stories is Pierre McGuire talking about a guy playing in red deer got sent. Eyes get played O Reilly does Dalton goes out it's and like one should know that if if a year org. May be more Pierre would not work for everyone but pierce got to have stories. As opposed to just like. A type device to buy sends drums one of the most underrated guys in this league. Bug on back to his days up in not such and such at their very games centric of course it's why I said they don't they they stick to the traditional mold. Players only another thing the NBA I I think has just. Nail. It was a fun find last night like my fiancee were. We start watching pre game of it in their twelve minutes later after these stories on a boss of from Isiah Thomas and Baron Davis unlike. Gimme more these guys somebody treated Ryan treated and NBA Los personality Shaquille O'Neal. No I've I've seen Shaq I've seen but it's the traditional pregame show made whether attorney Johnson or wherever socialist traditional pregame shows are not traditional religion it is still fun because you've got Shaq you've got Barkley are clearly has many Smith. And and then there's the traditional host there with them. But those three personalities. Are the pregame show and at this is fair to like be the point charges like set him up right put him in positions and then let him go and he was ages jock talk about whatever they want to last year in the playoffs maybe Shaq. Barkley bet shack he couldn't don't. And Jack took a basketball walked onto the court and turn handed one. We think I am right was awesome ride the NBA is just it's it's more interest former player stick around they all stay engaged they wanted to talk about the game. It's just a fun environment 8030550. To join us 888550. To 550 when we get back. Little College Hockey talk Niagara locations should be playing later this week at harbor setter in the Atlantic hockey Platz kinesis. What are run there are there at the top seed going into the tournament. On a fifteen game unbeaten streak their head coach Dave Smith will join us in a moment. On WGR. We should talk to horrible and and jacket learning how to use the shot to be more effective as the guys breaking down defenses giving street rebounds at the net for good ballplayer or lightly toward going there and you see I think you're seeing the result of that of him developing in that aspect over the last two. Two months where he's been out of the points per game production. Sabres head coach thing about it. Fight about mr. cycle from this morning we. Ran the gamut in terms of topics with the sabres head coach we talked about blown third period leads. We talked about Robin Lehner in the shoot out and his struggles to talk about some of the concepts kicked her out by the GM's yesterday for opening up the game. If you miss the interview is in on the mend audio at WGR 550 duck comic she's checking out Wii to get dates with here in the second. Two quick follow ups on the whole NBA players only a lot of texts from people saying that's why I like the investigators which of course is on the way at the top 10 o'clock. And now that sabres we mentioned this yesterday that the sabres are running a look back on the Ottawa brawl. The ten year anniversary. That will run actually now and all the time and will run okay to do and see that it'll run Saturday. During the game during the first intermission. And as we just had a conversation model liked players sit around tell stories yeah that's an edit format is that's it's a lot of Lindy but also mayor. Peters. Kelenna Mardi yeah thank players and around. Tell the story from that night. So be a look out of that Saturday first intermission the outlook back lengthy look back and remembering what that there was like and I just that they've that. Like that time. You think back to that time. One thing about that fight you know what I like like a hole like a half hour hour special not just an animation thing on that one thing that struck me in and going back and remembering was. Being in the building that night. When you go back and watch the highlights. You put rakes sound Indy your head as you're watching the highlights but when you were there are in the building that night. Did and it wasn't narrated I think it was just. I think everyone's about the fight that can pull this this building's gonna go in saying so anyway Phillies Saturday first intermission during the sabres came to look for a. College Hockey Thursday night Atlanta hockey quarterfinals how about a little policies while you cannot price kinesis is there they were the top seed this will be my Saturday night I'll be there you'd be floored if you would have predicted Niagara would be all right T and advance to the quarterfinals but they did. And not play tenacious and the grips head coaches Dave Smith and he's witnessed right now on our AT&T hotline. Top seed regular season champions fifteen game unbeaten streak into the post season. Coaches shout in Jeremy thanks for coming all of us today congratulations on the great regular season. Thanks very much are the for having me on Gary takes. It it's a playoff hockey agreed time of the year. I don't know if who is coach who doesn't pre season polls that coaches in your league. The coaches do yet you got to talk to that are few media outlets that do it also difficulties. Yeah I talked to that they picture in ninth in the pre season and end up went in the league and pretty much run the table here at the end so. Why are you guys able to do what you did this season and run to the top. Well it. It's an interesting question because if that was if we're able to solve every year it finished first every year. And and that well that's the goal I do believe that. The players really took hold vote. Three seed in pool they took Cordoba chemistry in the room. And and were on a mission wanted to establish their own legacy echinacea is within and a cocky and and hopefully beyond but I believe that was the the first. Step that the players really took cold up and after that we have some depth and scoring we have really good depth on defense and our our goaltender had an unbelievable season. Yeah when asked about Charles Williams in the second but coat you know did we hear from time to time coaches will talk about. How sometimes you just get that special team. That special season. Listening to what you said about the take the players and how they played out this season. You believe this is one of those examples is this say a special team and if so when they get it seemed like that how much fun is it to be around a group like that every day. Absolutely this is a special team and there's one word to describe it in its pride the pride that. The guys have in each other in the work ethic and and it is it has been a lot. I'll find this year with these guys they're very receptive to what we're doing. And at the same time they believe in themselves they're all I would describe minister stubborn group that believes. In themselves or were able to push and prod and request that them to do certain things but we ownership that they have been in. But every day commissions act he isn't standing. I would say it's got to be also Majorly helpful to be as fast as you are. You have a fast team. Yeah we we do. Our our guys can play with some pace and I think a lot comes call mr. you know he you know we both were pretty simple team. They know where they're supposed to be and then when they're there that night and they go our puck movement you know really all five guys that are. Interest in available and how we play on the ice and that interest I think started in pushing the pace you know we went to North Dakota earlier in the year that was an extreme case. Our guys were able to physically skate with them. We didn't play as well as a group there so the question to get together as a group I think is what the EC and we quite a. Council led by young guys to like what for your five top guys are either freshman or sophomore in terms of point production. You know I. I think so I'm about you know. It's not specifically I'm just saying like it it strikes me as a team that's. You know you you've got production from from newcomers. Yet we only have three scene is just elect has been out there all season with an injury or captain Jeff work. I've been with this for four years and Charles Williams so to do what we've done this year we could not do it without the contributions of young guys freshmen and sophomores that are. Have stepped into either the lineup for the freshmen are new rules. Sophomores and and really carried us because it does take everybody's so without those young guys we wouldn't be where we are. And your goalie I'm sure has played a big role for you this season so. Leads the nation and save percentage tied for first and shut outs second in goals against average save percentage is 944. Than William the numbers are eye popping Dave how she bit why has he been able to do that over the course of the season I guess would be the question. You know who prefer Meehan and a TARP a lot of both Charles Williams he's he's such an unbelievable. Character person. He eat come so there reiki came into our program after four years that your state shot. And he wanted to make a personal statement about news. His play in the net but he didn't come in. With an agenda he came in with character and sincerity and maturity. And you've really added to our leadership groups so. Just he has success on the nation to see that even keel. Standard of excellence that he has every day. To me allows him to put up those types of numbers he's he's such a high quality person who. Has had eight a magical. Special year and I couldn't be more happy for him and proud of his effort because. As a person he won't cost. So the good news is your regular season champs you're the top seed you do you got the body the quarterfinal. And I'm curious Dave how do you think they're the player's hands you're the hunted. How do you how do you think your team handles that. So far this year they've handled agree. We have. As I've been fighting for that. First place seed we were able to to get it in the last minute although we had that we had been at the top stories we needed help but the last minute shaker aren't our guys were. They were fired up they were fired up because that's what they were playing for an there is a different pressure being hunted being the top seed but we've shown. You all over. The last half of the year that. We can we can handle it we can play confidently we know how tough it is and we've been able learned a lot of lessons. It's true success through winning and and big big motivation at big guys is different here. You know in a different spot misstating your your plane. To prove yourself and our guys are playing to validate what they've worked so hard for him. We've had our best. Five practices of the year guys are dialed in and motivated and and really think coach is now.
