It's always Simon Jeremy wise. They announced shortly before the game. You know in game music no video no other entertainment during the first half the motivation was to quote allow fans to experience the game and its purest. Form since take time for American sports fans to re you Johnston and remember what it's like to watch games in just the part of I can't readjust and beyond readjusting our right and go one step farther we've also made the arena a dead zone none of you'll get phone real up close phone free games I'm getting cold shakes right now like I'm going to withdraw. And I am more to do my phone and you and I'm I know you I'm into this idea I would know what to do with this especially for my opponent well you might do the waived if you do the wave you won't be able to see on Twitter that stodgy old writers telling you you're a loser for doing away or statement. So everybody went oh well. Guess he's stodgy old right. I'd be screaming at my old. Six now. Yeah instead we get people in the press box would be yelling it which team just told its fans to stop doing the way I saw Arizona went to Arizona I don't there kudos to them what an embarrassment that's okay the four people who read the game no longer do the way. Hey look we actually got people in the building building no this is a hockey game you're not supposed to have fun folks on WG ER Sports Radio 550. 604 in the morning it is WGR Sports Radio 515. Day two of NFL free agency A Twitter gotta link about four minutes ago. We consider because it's as four minutes Kevin Seifert of ESPN. Post today out piece the winners and losers of day one. Which. You know it's a little bit like draft grades right away but at least when it comes to free agency you know the caliber of the player in free agency like. The players that the bills signers signed elsewhere L Shawn Jeffrey is our draft pick. You you know you know we is so you know old that he's good and for the Eagles that looks at a nice signing you know they get Jeffrey in Torrey Smith as well. So overall you can evaluate players in a certain way. That set winners and losers of day one from Kevin Seifert give you a bit of good news bills fans. His favorite signing not best signing there's best for site most creative move strongest move his. Favorites signing. Belongs to the Buffalo Bills and that is Micah Hyde. With the bills of added to their secondary Micah Hyde the bills newest member of the secondary who was brought over from the Green Bay Packers. And I'll rejoin what Kevin Seifert says about it. About Micah Hyde signing just because I think to see this today from in all national writer anybody that says like Ellis guys actually pretty good. On the story basically is that Micah Hyde was kind of like a Swiss army knife on defense for the Packers he played. It's kind of spot duty was so. Instant personal guess is what they would say valuable personal part time player had eight receptions. Four sacks six fumble recoveries and three punts returned for touchdowns. So he can play corner he can play safety functions while on blitz packages has a nose for the ball the bill's expected to be a full time player. Five years fourteen million in guarantees. But there's ever reason think that hide can handle so. They go in opulent envelope and the good news today meteor watching free agency may be jealous of teams that are getting receivers on the bills have. They compare fullbacks and added some other pieces the kicker Stephen how Scott. And Mike hide it at defensive back so maybe like that during and just you know tossing out some good news to start today. Yesterday was. Fast and furious it was a lot of movement from a lot of players and teams. And rumors are taken up by Tony Romo Jimmy Rob Lowe the oss Weiler trade is probably the story of the day so that's probably where will start this morning and I heard the conversation between much opens up podshow the knock down drag out fight that it was not as good debate. On who has a brighter future as of today who would you rather be the bills won the browns. And for those good discussion what they've done las Weiler is in my opinion a great move for them sell. When it's all that lots on the way several podger joins me at 8 o'clock this morning. I'm hosting the investigators today from ten to twelve yeah so I'm leading nine to go. Post that with crime are vague the putting me on television I apologize in advance in other Kennesaw is not something I think is always a great idea. But it is going to happen so be doing their content at twelve. So cells and great to attend in or Canas got a moving pieces around during our free agency here you are one busy man today Altay and on and I've got the call of Niagara and conditions tonight from our percent ours they play. The best of three series in the Atlantic hockey. Playoffs tonight is game one from our summer well leased to a well rested well you know I went to bed earlier I got up and I did something I don't normally do in the morning shower. Sorry I mean like too much information it's negative as early as we do you tend to shower later in the day what's the point come here. The job go home go to the gym audio so I shower this morning and that's got to be exciting relief for everybody in the building. Even though I only see like ten people before ultimately lead. All right anyway powers that in today he's on vacation he laughed and of course Stephon Gilmore signed with patriots in the bills neither move on Tyrod Taylor and a big things happen Howard's way. 8030550s. Our phone number 1808550. To 550 OK so I'm what the browns are doing vs what the bills are doing. This is the big debate from yesterday at that it was a great topic an interesting conversation. And I put a Twitter poll. Looking at today who has the brighter future. The bills or the browns the browns yesterday had a pretty good day on the the bill sudden bad name necessarily with the browns had a good day. They picked up. An additional second round pick just for taking Brock costs while for awful of Houston's balks they also made a number of other moves and bolster their offensive line. The browns line this is according to I'm reading a blog at the big lead dot com on on what they've done. At the offensive line that they've really picked up. Key pieces to build from the line if you ever wanted to team to build from the line and then go the browns are doing that. GC try to replace Cameron Irving at senator that's a big upgrade for them I know satirist and all that exciting the big question for them. Will be who is their quarterback right all of course always asked that question. Who the quarterback we ask for the browns will last you for the bills and other browns are said to be pursuing. Jimmy go rob hello Jason locked on for reporting that a package of 32 round picks might be fair value for Barack blow. They get an additional second round pick in that. Trade for. I'm wired if got its name. Oslo started. So they get an additional second round pick for that oss Weiler trade maybe that trade while eating up a lot of money on the books for the browns for one year. They can justify it by swinging those picks New England. And snagging. Jimmy drop below the drop below trade to me is always band that interest thing and terrifying I would not want any piece of that trade. The patriots have an old quarterback who will be old again. Who at some point will prove to be mortal. And if the patriots really value Jimmy drop below they would keep him. It would be an insurance policy. If they thought he was really good there's no they there's just no way they would trade him it's the most important position on the team I do not believe anybody can just step in for Tom Brady win. I know the drop low beat Arizona and Miami this season I'm not impressed he played all right that's fine. But I'm thinking about the long term and I would not want any piece of a trade with. The patriots were Jimmy drop law. By the way Jimmy drop lowest post and on instant ram this morning thanks for the memories Boston or something to that effect basically like hey. It's been great I wish everybody the best piece out. That's on Jimmy drop blows in Seagram no one seems to know why. So. Mean he's been Foley's been traded maybe it's being ironed out maybe he's been assured that there will be a trade but just us nowhere it'll come to. So you've got lots of moving parts here the bills of course have Tyrod Taylor he spoke yesterday at a press conference. And Sean McDermott talked about how the came to the decision to bring back Tyrod and some of the key stuff that's in there for me. Is that bolts Tyrod and the bills explore other options. I and I'm like you know we knew in my the only one segment from time to time my the only one that's really encouraged by both of those things. That Taylor pursued other options and the bills pursued other options. Think this is to meet the opposite of what happened with Ryan Fitzpatrick and the bills gave him all that money and signed him. It's Patrick was underpaid is the starting quarterback in the bills wanna commit to him so they did and they gave my bunch of money that. Probably was more than he would get on the open market. And they did so to try and make good on Ryan Fitzpatrick. At that time I remember I wrote and our website wells is gonna pay top dollar for Ryan Fitzpatrick like. Don't price yourself out on the east middle cornerbacks. And in this scenario the bills did not do that with Tyrod Taylor did a particularly give them credit. We take a ton of time. To shred the bills won it looks like their management make bad decisions but here it looks like they made a good one to me. That they were willing to move on and they ultimately decided to settle for and by settle for I mean decide that their best option. For what they want to do. Is Tyrod Taylor it's tough to argue with that. The best option for what they want to do is Tyrod Taylor I'll agree with that it might not be the best option. If they wanted to do something else which is. Let's be honest whether it's tank or draft a quarterback and play a rookie horse he would card Al Jones hats if that you know the Tyrod conversation to me as we debated it through the months leading up to the decision on. Wednesday. The old of the the conversation leading up to it started with a question what do you want the bills to do. Do you want to take another kick the can. Fix the defense go with Sean McDermott have him pull video games on locker room because that shows that he means business and try to win as many games as possible. 41 to the browns. And or that I can even say the jets for that matter the jets have. Taken their team apart. They may be pursuing Jay Cutler who I think is actually a perfect tank quarterback explain that for available later at least my opinion I think he's a perfect tank quarterback. And those teams appear to be going for the bottom and building for their future the bills are gonna do to it wants. They're going to be the team that tries to make the playoffs and tries to do well. And also looks for the quarterback of the future and I don't think there's any reason that. Eighties. Them on the start over correct distance on that sentence over again the the bill's gonna try and do bulls. Can they find their franchise quarterback while also trying to make the playoffs. Yes they can a number of teams actually have done that some of the best teams have done that. It's not as cut and dry as tanking in hockey and picking up you know John tomorrow Sidney Crosby Alex Ovechkin it's not quite like that. If you dig about the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Some of the vast. Patriots got Tom Brady while they were being good they took a flyer guy in the sixth round and they strike gold. The mean let's go to this nice to see Drew Brees and the saints but the chargers the chargers got Philip Rivers they were already kinda good they were drafting high. But they had good seasons and Drew Brees had shown some good things before. So they had a quarterback they were trying to win they are really bad season. And they give Philip reverse the Steelers get Ben Roethlisberger in a bit of a down your drafting him eleventh overall. But this that the Steelers didn't have this massive fire sale or they decided clearly were not good enough. There was Tommy medics the Kordell Stewart error and the Steelers just trying to win along the way and then found a guy who played for a long time. Colts and Peyton Manning that's different that's team it's terrible the picks a guy at the top Aaron Rodgers to the Packers right. Packers are good they draft him what won me fourth someone that neighborhood very have a quarterback they draft the guy to develop. So I don't I don't necessarily think the you have to do. Drop to the bottom and be horribly terrible and and to be just awful in order to find a great quarterback in order find franchise guy. Of the future. What I do think you need to do is pick cornerbacks. And the bills have not done that all that much. And they passed over guys and I I mentioned this before last year at the draft Paxton Lynch's on the board and the bills are on the clock. In this is the perfect example of how having a quarterback and trying to win it can prevent you from taking one. They don't take packed in late so now they choose Tyrod Taylor over packed the legend that might end up being just fine. This year they bring back Tyrod Taylor if at tenth overall Mitch troop riskier to Shawn Watson one of those guys is on the board and they don't take them well. I know that they might not have taken that guy anyway but the existence and Tyrod Taylor on the roster obviously plays in. To the fact that they're not just gonna draft a quarterback they're gonna do the best they can tell surround him with talent. And have been many examples of this you know the bills don't take Aaron Rodgers because the year before they traded up for JP lost and they didn't have a first round pick. So there are many many examples of this franchise not taking a core Mac because they had at least mild belief and god they had. Or they just flat out whipped on the guy in the draft right TJ Graham over Russell Wilson. They do that because they believe in the quarterback they have or because they just totally wet. Deck press got its a guy that. Reportedly the bills really liked that Prescott's thought a bottom of the third round ultimately waited on that and went defensive tackle while they go to offensive tackle because they're trying to build the best team they can around the quarterback that they have mild belief in May be at that time last year they had more belief in Taylor. Than they do now. So it doesn't have to keep you from drafting a quarterback and doesn't have to prevent you from finding that guy. But it definitely can get in the way. And I I am anxious to see how the bill's approach this draft. If the existence of Taylor if the recommitment to Taylor. And the first year coach in Rick Dennison right they a lot of this comes down to the fact that the bills made this decision with there they'll they'll they'll they would tell you. Their GM their coach and the offensive coordinator here Sean McDermott on that that it was a group decision with Whaley in Dennison. It did a phenomenal job and that's routine after think that he never from the start with god and his staff and coaches as well in the evaluation. Data colleague Rick Bennett. Look out and along the other coaches. Whenever you talk about the quarterback position not only isolate that position alone quarterback effect at all positions and so that's what I'm hired came to. And it was just those two of them that we're certainly originated from. As Sean McDermott speaking on. How they came to decision to bring back Tyrod eases the system's a good fit all right so if Rick Dennison the offensive coordinator and the head coach has input. Into whose starting quarterback is which of course by the time he gets training camp Q you want the coach to decide who the starter is who best play that guy. But if Dennison and and McDermott are shaping the franchise in kind of charting the course. Will they also have a say in. When a quarterback is drafted who will decide that. Who decide to tenth overall I know how works when the bills are tenth on the on the clock and and let's say they roll up to the board. And Shawn Watson and Sean Kaiser are both there and pebble Holmes is there and not signature miscues there all of them rather. Its tenth overall they have their pick of whoever they want. Who decides. The direction. Because it's not just our idol. These guys will always tell ya i.'s top kind of bored me you know helps us fill position of need if they take Corey Davis or Mike Williams it receiver it would be a great that's fantastic that dot bigger receiver guys and it was position of need and they got the guy that they wanted so hey everything works out great. I'm I've been to enough draft coverages throughout drug coverages that I've seen it I've seen. Teams Dahlia the czar does topic on our board who were dressed intent we had this guy ranked fourth. Great treated I I don't ever to see your board but I guess that might have happened so let's say to get to the tenth pick. And their top rated guy on the board is a quarterback do you believe they would take him because I don't. I don't. I think they would pull to the roster elsewhere meantime Alltel but if they're looking at the tenth overall pick and they've got Moly cooker whose safety they could use or Mike Williams out of climbs in a war. Again pick whichever quarterback you want. Those three are there. And all three have a grade of eight point nine. Doug Whaley is in charge of the draft right. Doug Whaley didn't talk about any of the decisions they made yesterday. Doug Whaley is of course doing draft crap but didn't speak to the media and if they have three guys on the port safety receiver quarterback equal grades. Forty you want them to take. And what do you think they would do who makes the decision. Because if it's about head coach offensive coordinator and GM. The three of them making a decision. I bet two of those three are not gonna wanna talk about a quarterback. They're gonna wanna talk about a receiver that can help this offense maybe McDermott's gonna wanna talk about the safety newly Coker someone like that. So the organization's. Path is charted in part. By wanting to win as soon as possible by wanting to show that this coach is going to change the culture and that was a big conversation yesterday. A lot of that is well he changed culture stop the process or removing the video games and pool tables because you know it's gonna be about more business in here they did keep the ping pong table and also I guess the players got that. So think about that for a moment you get to tenth. What's gonna happen. Yesterday. McDermott did speak to the idea of drafting a quarterback and would not rule out. We're gonna look at every position quarterback noted we're always looking to do what is best for the football. That's what we're going billing it seemed so I've been mentioned before there were to create competition and every position that again. Competition in death than ever position in Al won't rule it out they're not gonna rule anything he does a nice job of deflecting and really. I think it and nice way to say it is saying as little as possible McDermott does not like to say alive and I get it you know he's also new at this he's never been a head coach before he's got to figure out what kind of message and told he wants to sample C. How things change. You know three games into a season how his post game demeanor is if he's passionate if he's mad he's the kind of got its gonna criticize officials or call lot of dirty hit. You know like a lot about McDermott we still have to learn about. But right now he sounds like a guy that wants to come across as no nonsense who wants competition who's a football guy and finger quotes and wants to win as many games as soon as possible. So I believe that means a tenth overall they don't take quarterback and the bills for the to their credit onto their nearly you to they're credited to their detriment. I don't have I I really don't. Have a long list of obvious examples where they should've taken a quarterback and didn't. You could make it to TJ Graham Russell Wilson thing if you want you can you can have that point but. Every human league pass on Russell Wilson second round you know Derek Karr wide and they take Derrick car probably because they had mild belief and got they already had. So. It doesn't have to prevent you from taking your quarterback it just often does it often does prevent you from really reaching out and going for. And sometimes you feel lucky wood deck press got in the fourth round because of the cowboys. And sometimes you're gonna take a fourth round guy like carnal Jones and he's never gonna see the field in as starters role on a consistent basis Woolsey if he does but. To meet Tyrod move if in terms of going for what they want. They really couldn't do much better. If you want to the other outcome. Of course they could've done a lot better. They could've decided to dumped Taylor and just moving and ever different direction. And go to the bottom trying to be like Cleveland. Cleveland is very interest thing. It's about stockpiling picks they have eleven picks this year they have eleven picks next year. What do they draft for quarterbacks of all those specs because they are beholden to any quarterback certainly not Brock costs Weiler not RG three not. And who's got a guy in that case Keenan who played for them. Cole or the code the Kessler Cody Kessler you know while I mean the browns come on. And the one thing the browns and bills have been common in the last decade. As the browns make their moves you do get people that snickering saved rightly Cleveland's draft it really well. Yeah. The bills are about the same boat. The difference between the bills in the browns is the browns have made the playoffs in this tracks and it and bad. Then they've lost the team and got a team back but the bills and the browns think about the games they played against each other they've been some of the worst games you've ever seen. The bill 71 anymore games in Cleveland lightly so I don't know why the bills or get benefit of the doubt over Cleveland just because the browns are stockpiling picks. They've got eleven new this year and eleven next year including 32 rounder next year two firsts this year two seconds this year. The browns are kinda where. We were warning the sabres to a few years back the sabres traded all's picks and got some pretty good players and still have work to do. So I'd say big big. Job for both Cleveland and buffalo they appear to be taking massively different approaches. On similar time line switches. Last year was a guess year two of the Tyrod Taylor Ara. And for the browns this is year two or three of their tank -- down and rebuilt. Who would you rather be good vote on online in my at Twitter poll looking at a today whereas the brighter future bills are browns. 389 votes in 52% so far on the grounds. It's close it's definitely close and it's totally different approaches. We'll see with the bills two with the draft. At ten would you take a quarterback. I'm not sure. I'm conflicted if they like a guy and off I hope they do and I don't think they well. 8030551888550. To 550 we knew all along if they picked up Taylor we would then moved to. Let's lay out the plan to get the next quarterback to get a guy to either compete or to be groomed or to be ready. When does that happen. First round second round next year. Jerry white with you Braden wells are producing Howard's off today suck podger joins us coming up at 8 o'clock lots to get to including. An apology to the patriots. And I mean it an honest one.

Then in this. Facility every day close at six hours and get a chance you know to coaches and vision for this team just thought move forward. We can work out something from both sides there will be beneficial. This place. That's bill's quarterback Tyrod Taylor of course back for another year with the team on his restructured contract. After the last couple days bill said all Tyrod and head coach Sean McDermott speaking again yesterday press conference and introductions. They've added a number of free agents the bill savvy can of course track everything our website WGR 550 dot com. Micah Hyde from the Packers defensive back to complete quarter. And safety. And or safety is out for the most part around the NFL being talked about as the best signing the bills made. We've joked about the fullbacks that they've added so. The bills all signed five players' safety Jordan lawyer who came in from the browns. Patrick DiMarco fullback. Guard flat at duke costs along the idea of having gone in flat. I kicker Stephen how Scott and safety Mike hiding again hide. If you're looking around I think he's getting. The most attention as a nice nice poll bills. We gonna pay him significantly less than Stephon Gilmore and they need help on the secondary with Gilmore and Aaron Williams both leaving that makes it's. What Ronald Darby and keep on Seymour and you know you've got a couple holes to fill. So that's bills free agency contracted at our website WGR 550 dot com sabres play tonight in Columbus at 7 o'clock puck drop against the Blue Jackets. Who I have sort of roster point very hot right now the two teams play tonight and again tomorrow tomorrow's game is that. By keybank senator the kinesis gold Griffin's host Niagara tonight at harbor senate tonight and tomorrow. If you wanna catch some college. Hockey playoffs. Those who play a best of three series tonight tomorrow and Sunday. If necessary other news around the NFL's we get back to that used Al Shawn Jeffrey to the Philadelphia Eagles on a one year deal which I think is interesting. In eight sometimes that's good for both sides of player can just go out and get a one year deal get a lot of money. Bet that he won't get hurt. And Brock costs while traded to the Cleveland Browns the browns take on oss Weiler. And get a draft pick in the process which is something that as soon as that happened as soon as I saw that the bronco inserted the Brown's pick up oss Wyler and a second and that's the price is that it will take costs while for you if you give us the second. I thought I hope Tim Marie can get the browns that the couple sabres players like will give the browns' second cup traffic if they can take you know. Insert player who needs to be traded because he has term on his contract and isn't worth it anymore. Insert that later here so they double as your sports headlines next update on the ways of top of the hour from. Brayton Jeremy White with you on this Friday Howard Simon is off today sucked botch your joins me acts. 8 o'clock. I'm infamy to nine and then I have to walk not rule of the drive down to a joint crime survey for the ins theaters today Salma. Looking forward to doing that should be some fun. All right 8030551888550. To 550 the quarterback carousel employer to San Francisco. Rome all maybe to be traded now not released. That changed. And caught or available for the jets a moment on Cutler here. Jay Cutler is the perfect. Perfect. Tank corps back. The jets if the jets get Kotler they can make it look like they're trying and have a guy that is. A turnover machine. The jets have Connick. Was dismantled their defense. They're gonna trade Sheldon Richardson it would seem the let Brandon Marshall walk so they take weapons away. The date trade good players they cut nick mangled their offensive line know that Ankara there D'Brickashaw Ferguson retired recently beat the jets are going. Down and rich to rejoin Murphy this week to talk about it and talk about how the jets are not exactly the browns level of tank but they know what they are and they're going down. You know the number one way to do that but I was talk about turnovers are overrated and they they're their overblown and I stand by that however. Giving it away all the time it's a bad thing and Jay Cutler really does that an awful lot he won't have a defense to back him up. His weapons or go one. High and dry in New York if the jets bringing Jay Cutler then I think would be doing it to tank. And he is the perfect. Tank quarterback so. I'm not worried about it at the jet ski collar. If if like you look at the bills to win games you might worry about it if they successfully tankan go to the bottom but. It's a perfect move for the jets if they were to do with the jets should be terrible this year and that they be terrible last year and they war and they've lost lot of key pieces. 8030550. Are severe responses to the two questions I'm asking this morning one is. Would you rather be the bills of the browns who like who has the brighter future today. We've got 51% Brown's 49% bills the bills got out low one picks the kind of low on cap room. Now the browns about a ton and and it offensive lineman and have the room to add more. Never a fruit to pick up rock costs while we're simply to release him and take decapitated. In order to get a second round pick. To me that looks like pretty good cap management. Realizing we are not going to be good lets you know clear the decks not only of good players put a salaries that allow us load of more flexibility so. I like the browns have done their. And for the bills. And the browns their futures the bills are tight on the cap I might want L Shawn Jeffrey on this team this year but I knew there was no there were no way they're gonna do it. I'm I am I don't wanna Stephon Gilmore on the team for a year. Could a franchise tag Gilmore for about you know fourteen million dollars the exact amount of money to patriots are gonna give him this year but. The patriots still have managed their cap really well. And they bring in Gilmore for a big chunk of change he is their second highest paid player Gil mores. And they do it because. They think oh no owner trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions and get a good player. For the bills who are appearing to be in win now mode I don't think issued a sign Gilmore five years and fourteen million per year with forty million guarantee I would have done that. Because I've watched his team bringing good players spent a lot of money on good players and kind of ignore the quarterback position or try to win in spite of the quarterback position. I didn't think Gilmore needed to be brought back it's fine if they wanna do for one year what do made sense. Again if they're trying to win and ultimately they opt not to do it so you know you you you move on and say. What are you doing your cap room now you know you draft all your players you can and you fill them in and you'd don't have huge targets Micah Hyde. That's the kind of move the bills have to go for. You know Micah Hyde is is he as good as Gilmore probably not if you was so I think the patriots offered more money and more room. In other patrons and more flexibility than a lot of teams that the patriots in the browns of the two with all of the most room to do stuff one of them on the Super Bowl Leo on 11 game. So now it's. On how team's approach it short term long term and I think Cleveland's and a good spot the bills. I'm happy to what they did to Taylor. Just because it's what they wanted. And the way they did it does not Timmy seemed desperate. It seems like they were willing to let him walk and hell outside right yesterday talking about his decision he can't really say eight. That he talks other teams because he's under contract but he certainly. Gives the impression that he did it was a few today. About their but are now still on the contract a wasn't like I was released anything so proud American do too much and it wasn't looking to do. My focus this past offseason was to get healthy first and foremost having the surgery early January are so muscle focus was to get healthy. Let my agents far away to make things work here and now we have to get something done yesterday I'm excited to be back. Few teams that interest I am under contract he was never not under contract with the bills so. You know he can't exactly say like yeah the browns offered eighteen million per year. You know eighteen guaranteed on a three year deal but I just liked it better here you can't say that because it's against the rules you get the bronze in trouble his agent would likely get in trouble. He's here under contract and let's be honest he saw other interest the Greer had this Hoyer decline in therein I'm Glen and for about eight to nine million dollars a year which is what they paid Tyrod last year. There non Klan in and wants the price goes too high they decide that there are out on Glenn and and you know I don't think a lot of people are expecting Michael Ireland have a monster season this year with the bears but if he does. And Tyrod Taylor the bills have a bad seasonal Adobe another check mark against. The Buffalo Bills and what they've done. Not over and over again there are examples of like he you can take different roads and the bills opted to kind of pressed further on down this road. For better or for worse the biggest issue you have I think if you were an anti Tyrod. Not anti tyra being you know what I mean you're afraid of being stuck in the same spot that's that's ride that. It was sweet tour this year that I set I was done with Taylor and when I meet when I say done. What I mean is done with the idea that he's going to be the guy that he's gonna be the what is savior too much week to. He's too many missed throws to the middle of field too many mistakes in their offense was a you know drop back run around heave one deep that's how they got their two touchdowns in the game they're getting. Blown out they can't keep up offensively the jets shut down the run game no and it was two weeks of the season. And Taylor was awful against the ravens and against the jets at body was equally bad even though he had a big big game. He bounced back from that put. And I'm out of course I've got to be willing to change my opinion of him as his play continues to change so he has a huge year this year and looks good. Not all have to reevaluate. But. I think about. Taylor. Where his career track is than it was weeks to that I decided I want them to draft a quarterback and get serious about this thing. The question remains how serious are about pursuing quarterback the Taylor conversation. Had people mad. And had people passionate one side or the other you don't wanna go all the way back. Took you off three and thirteen. You wanna try to make the playoffs I get the feeling at that this is like step one and for a lot of you. The big reaction the big outrage the big. A lot of what the passion comes back on draft day. When round one comes and they pass on a quarterback in a round two rolls through and they pass on tap home so they pass on whoever you might be mean like. Each number one of us tends to buy draft time get a guy you like. If they just keep passing in passing and then in the sixth round take. Insert six from quarterback name here. I think that Monday it's. This franchise continues to ignore the position this franchise continues to you know try to. Make it work with a quarterback that's limited and they're doing that again. And they they give the impression they're gonna keep looking for a quarterback so a kind of wanna say let's let's hold them to that let's make sure that they do. 8030551808550. To 550 lot of tweets on the sought more homes in this late second early third round looks most likely unless they somehow wake up wake up. Realize and trade Tyrod person picks it's from Jason I don't think tyrants getting traded I mean you know you restructure that deal. And have press conferences because you wanna give the impression that your excited about him in the near happy that he's back. More tweets on this Christopher writes and they've. The question I asked was do you think having a quarterback will affect their. Boldness hi how bold they'll be in and try again another one and Chris writes in yes they've seemed afraid to make a real move on quarterback since EJ Manuel and that's a fair point to. Like they found EJ's replacement how'd they do it by bringing in an undrafted guy. The thing about that for a minute they prestige in the first round fourteen games and his career it was clear he wasn't very good. And the bills were prepared to have him compete for a job a third year. You know like manuals timeline was drafted. Started his first year he really wasn't supposed to because that was supposed to be Kevin cops here started his first year got hurt had some good. Good games had some good moments year two he starts four games in his benched. Because the coach stepped in and the coach could want develop quarterback the coach wanted to win as many games as possible so he played Kyle Orton. Kyle Orton retires after one year. And the year three is. Back to eject. Think he's in a competition and the competition that Vijay was in wise with Matt Cassel. A free agent. And and and Tyrod Taylor made street freeagent they pick a father the think about that for a moment even even EJ Manuel. Did not have to compete with a drastic. So having mild belief in your quarterback candid affect how you draft and how you approached. Building your roster at the quarterback position most certainly. After that first year. Bills at an off Vijay believe any Jake to not draft one and then four games later he's benched. It's a first round pick you spent on manual. And take you back in fourth. And that's how you managed to. Always be looking for quarterbacks and never really have a guy because. You know your mild belief we keep saying mildly full of fight another term for. Prevents you from going all out. Let's go to Ryan and North Carolina Ryan good morning. On good Ryan it's up. You know what after the first they are not free agency I would say that already we did not in the offseason or little Rex Ryan not all. You know I think we are that way at the mercy of about Tyrod Taylor. Having done this title right away or else he would approach or other other options. I think we're to look at and paying the same thing last year I don't like I don't like where the quarterback position. He. No just like watching Rob Johnson gets sent every third down and write this after. Throwing the ball back Eric Burke the other team it's going to be Watson Tyrod. Go back pocket all the right and I'm not rode out about what irked the sideline and not a player not utilizes. But there are around on it'll be don't want Childress and quarterback. Midas you spike puts it into your goal line and opening. He is our guy. He cannot. He does action RJ Cutler irate I think he's. Under rated for. Most people don't see an early lead Chicago's. A franchise in every. Category as part QB is concerned I'd think he's gotten. A lot of (%expletive) public. Because we're that you who's a second bashing cornerback Chicago's ever had though what has it who would the other great quarterbacks the bears have ever had. Mean Jim McMahon Jim Harbaugh. For a franchise standpoint the bears are I mean at that position it's pretty weak for their I mean for rapper right. Our panel I'm not a practiced yet it. I mean I guess I got the art out of date and as as you all got different and it's expecting that book is and the saints in their political. How can even get excited about this here whip Eric. Well Bryan deal and that's I think that's a great question. The only way I think you the phone call mark against the break him and I'll continue to is the only answer that question I think is that view. If you're trying to get excited. You wait for the draft you see if they get a playmaker and you start listening to Rick Dennison and what this offense is gonna try to do. You know self talks about the Gary Kubiak coaching tree in Dennison sprouts off of that what they gonna do with this offense that I guess surely hope it was it's a different offense and it finds a way to bring out the best and Taylor I don't disagree with a lot of what you said I will this route one part though. And that's that the bills were up against it because of the deadline with Tyrod and that that the restructuring of the deal. That's the one thing I don't disagree with I think it played out for them the way that they I don't think you're gonna play down any better. And it's important here like. They wanted. The best quarterback they could find for the cheapest money they could get to try to win this year and I think so far the guys I've seen move the guys that have signed. They did the best in the they're not gonna get Rome all. And Romo has this injury concerns people wonder about that at what and that's a sound investment in working to get brawl ball. Would you rather have to land in. Maybe I was talking marketing Trevor Ximian because he was so cheap. And I don't think is a big difference between Simien and Tyrod Taylor I mean I really don't and Simien played. In Rick Dennison is often so I'm it's actually I'm still interest in Trevor Ximian. If the bills if the Broncos rather other team that gets Tony Romo all I want the bill to call what's her simian. You have to draft the guy go to him bring him in as a not quite a veteran back up but when Seattle did it with Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn. And Charlie Whitehurst who the third either whoever wants. Think they had three guys in there. And Flynn had been in the league. If they can beat Taylor and Simien and whoever I'm not expecting them to just give the job the simian but to have a back up its played in the league and played for this coordinator I still like that idea. To make him your starter would have been a tough sell for half the fan base to bring him in as a guy that hey. It doesn't go well for Tyrod and he couldn't pick up this offense this guy's run before. So. There's still ought to be done I understand Brian and I I do Philly high you get excited about this season. I don't know I don't know. We always find a way right don't we. Industrial 550 thank Ed texting and we traded for castle thank you what was it like a seventh round pick for a fifth round pick something. I think it was seven gotcha yeah but the point is they didn't draft thank EJ Manuel had a year and four games and was benched and they still didn't draft a quarterback to compete with them. And here yet Tyrod Taylor what the odds the draft quarterback to compete with a I wouldn't put those odds very high. He's probably gonna play this year without a challenge from a drafted pick quarterback in if they do one next year you'll if you're drafting seventeenth. What you do. View most say one way we moved up of and we figured out that Taylor played pretty well let's add more weapons let's do more to fix the defense or you gonna take a quarterback. 80305518088. By fifty to 550 and a B York. Roaming culture is being. In order to have him resulting chemistry you've got to first have the culture and so you bland high character individuals with talent and you had a chance to have that culture and so that is a big part of this moving its organization for in the right direction this is a business we talk about you've heard me says before earning their right to win. We've got to stay focused on the task at hand. That's John McDermott talking about no video games right in the locker room. Here's riled respectfully disagree with his approach he's coaching it's duty wants it however. It shouldn't be lost on the coach or any general manager of any sports team. Getting your players. Into the building to hang out together is a good thing he talks about chemistry and culture and all that stuff. Think one of the things that having you know the video games there or the pool table the ping pong table is like hey we got meetings at 8 AM. All right lol once the players showed up at seven had a ping pong tournament like guess what nobody was late to meetings because players showed up. Why do with some of the best companies in the world have really great work environments whether it's boom goal or. In other there. Offices and bats that have bars wider they have those not because people wanna get away and be completely irresponsible their jobs. But because if you create a positive work environment that actually can help your office so I get it he's. Seemingly no nonsense he's seemingly out all business and that's his approach but. If you're buying the getting rid of television's in the weight room and getting rid of stuff like that Chan Gailey did that singular governor television's in the weight room. More cock and ingenuity reform. You want positive work environment however that can be so I was talking to Matthew collar former morning show producer here at WGR he covers in Minnesota Vikings now. They just got a new stadium. But what still has to be done is the vikings locker room still really needs upgrades in their training facility. And what happens he says is that when players go to practice in in Minnesota their training facility. Rather than go into the facility and use it and like get ready for practice together the rule that the locker room is so small and inefficient the players. Sit in their cars. As long as they can and then going to the bill. So they just all sit their cars and wait because they don't wanna be locker room for all that long because it's a pain. This is why when you are whether you're the sabres revamping their locker room and making it a nice place to be. I know like the old school curmudgeon or like they should be getting dressed in cold showers and the Asian would be walking barefoot like Null. You actually should treat your employees with a great level of respect he should make them want to be in the locker room and anyway you can. And if that's through our company ping pong tournaments or whatever it might be. Positive work environments lead to positive work experiences so Sean McDermott takes some of the fun out locker room. Okay. If he wins. It's worth it. And if he doesn't. It's meaningless you know winning fixes everything so I had hoped that the coach that the bills hired was young enough to have played. A lot of video games so that is game management and clock management skills to be on the level with Michael the Madden champions and I'm not kidding when I say that. And instead he I think you might be exact opposite he removes video game so. I would think that maybe he has not had a lot of simulator work in practice on knock down and distance clock management. So. On the job training this year for him 8030550. Give a thought on that I welcome that as well on a tiny to explain the Madden thing. Well it's Jeremy White with you Howard's indication brings to yourself about your joins me in one hour on WG.
