It is Buffalo Bills football Monday Jeremy White. And soaked -- show here on WGR. Welcoming in prime fits that your quarterback of Buffalo Bills following yesterday's loss in Miami Ryan have realities Syria first and foremost I'm an ounce up. It's bills Monday were talking about a loss puts of course wanted to extend happy holidays soon to a do you your family and thank you for joining us once again. Yeah same deal. It is you know it is obviously. Kind of a bunch of these are some tough losses but it if some some excited kids in my house right now. That's a pretty good and that's good that's good you guys have you know some some time to yourself. You know if we may just about about the game obviously. In the first half in appear to. You know. I didn't Brian what are you talking about any game a lot of games you can talk about bounces you can talk about small things that go wrong. I would if I'm being honest I think yesterday's one of those games where it might have been the worst I've seen in in terms of the number of bounces slash call slash mistakes that all added up to go against you I mean you know you could say. A fumble is a mistake or mental break up but not interrupt you don't lose every fumble and that every fumble is review mobile and then held up by review and it just seemed like. As as bad as it was that it was a a collection of everything going wrong everything it could go wrong did go wrong. -- really. Especially this first happened most of the third quarter of that sort so I. You know neither fumbled it there probably aren't jarring hit it was just. You know it didn't make the plays. Those -- You know quite that we usually won't fumble that all the false starts that we had. Bit inexcusable and you know the casket the remaining goes the end zone call it complete there's just a lot of stuff happen. Just kind of went against this yesterday and you know we knew we were good enough hurt by -- not at all to overcome -- That throw you make a steadying a perfect throw on -- -- TD catch it goes in the end zone ultimately. Doesn't hang onto it seems like that is. If you if you and Stevie have a bread and butter that route you guys -- that an awful lot would when he singled up. That is her name like what what what what is that exactly called for for that route that he runs re kind of takes. He almost -- step inside and then runs to the to the sideline and in seems to frequently get open on that. A lot of terms -- these that's just the basic go route. He'd never really run to the same way he plays off of his defender a lot of times you can press coverage. He is kind of a feel route for him words you can do whatever he needs to do you have to line. To beat -- I get downfield and -- It takes a lot of work with with both Lewis is conservatively knowing -- you can because you never really same spot never really. Take -- cinematic time at the wanted to get operatives really there. I'm good route -- -- -- and got we have. Unfortunately kind of got jarred out of the ground. There was an article this week about exactly -- saying with Stevie. That he has a lot more freedom and the offense than most receivers would in any offense from the NFL that's one of the things that. Makes him. A dangerous. Is that true for Saab is that true -- and second does that make it a little bit more difficult for you to nowhere is going to be. I'm that's the only thing that allowed -- he'd become a player that he's become the last few years is. The fact that Sudan has allowed him a lot of freedom and our offense because route running. Just trying to move the and a hard guy to -- through if you're not used to draw -- I guess you know so we. Spend together. We're a long time now -- -- -- real comfort level with him in terms of what he's going to do. You know -- -- you know -- as he says. -- -- How much it he has. We've we've got a pretty good record there asking you -- this year. And something you know hopefully goes in the future. Of third down during an inside and saw a lot this year especially towards the end of the year. Because he's older than even if you get double teams he's kind of got to go to go outside to inside. And not think she's. Adamant they're a little bit more is going to be maybe the best receiver in the league soccer down. Right on the interception at the goal line it looked like she was actually open and you had the right play called everything what happened though. With Rashad Jones and the interception can you walk us through that play. Yeah. He made a great party. There's a good reaction by him he would stand up into lives that Iran played it left. I would be option for a speedy it was on the line -- standard and in the line. Not just. He may could play. Was shocked I think he was itself as anybody that ended up Kessler rather than giving in that now that that's something. You know really the throw that I made -- that he. Problem in the first quarter. Of the same type deal. In this -- there was a at a guy like I'm gonna react late. What I'm there really react late in the ghetto handbook that he made a really good course. On the heels of or just talk about with the the plays in the calls and things like that a throwback to the plate that was called no touchdown. For Stevie Johnson as a player as a player how frustrated you get with the inconsistencies of the applications. Of the rules because in my interpretation -- if that's a running back who runs it is from five or six yards out. Even if he puts the ball down the way Stevie did and that's a touchdown mean. What point is Stevie not establish himself. As a runner with the ball in his hands don't you get frustrated at the same type of application and inconsistencies. Of those applications of the rules. Yeah I think so Eisenberg and we'll let you know I'm not rule I haven't seen that -- up your -- honor. But it from what I've been told. Seem like he caught it in play before he got it in the hall for a couple step. And then go into the end zone -- Israel off the ball -- Again I haven't seen it but from what I've heard. And just you know being -- about it in the listening consists. I just think maybe you can help us help me understand what happened. Where Tammy hill. -- -- to throw for word and I -- that occurred and that and the like the next possession that you had a fumble and I'm thinking we will wait a minute you'll also meant to throw it forward. But we didn't get the same application sought if you can explain me what happened in that whole statement I have no idea. The -- W declare that convert and our sideline shaking her head you know yes I think essentially they said was. The quarterback in the -- and the girl forward get hit the ball goes -- Man. It's not being fumble it's not -- -- backward pass which. I don't know -- I'm gonna get you right Ali got to do every any types of like that happens. Just claim the fact you were attempting that throw forward -- attempting to do something in your off the hook I guess right. And all the Cleveland game that's all it does kind of slipped out of my hand and bent forward that was ruled a fumble. I don't know I guess someone in using that New York. Timely I remember the Cleveland game I could at least they called by the public -- and they believe they called the first sack of the year -- is -- right that's right I could political -- -- since play a -- -- TV's first farmland but anyway you know if you really think about it. You know electric driving you nuts. Ryan. CJ yesterday. Scott got hurt went down. When you when you look at all your weapons and the things that happen over the course the season this offense. Did have problems battling injury whether it was Fred. David Nelson is another I want to ask you about Nelson because you haven't had -- since week one. How much have you missed him by -- how much was that David Nelson as a big target over the middle the field. How much do you think this offense miss him more than you thought maybe. Yeah thanks so looking back you know. The other currencies on third down. And what you read -- home. You know got to go over some of that old this year -- law are down because of the yeah I think you know the loss of David it was a big one trust. And yesterday you know it's gotten them. In history such a reliable guy -- -- -- trust and we're going to be great hands. I'll have. You know sort of not -- have David would have had them -- -- you know they have down down have got a down. There's you know trying to -- guys together in America some of the guys -- and that. Game we did a lot of stuff on the fly signal so that the line -- a really nice job. Come -- in that -- you realize. How. Far and we've gone in the seat with different players. Toward the end of that game there. Brett says -- -- since the bye week Brian that the offensive production has dipped significantly cells have the statistics on in terms of points since the -- week. This season you've had seven games with the offense didn't get in the end zone more than once if if even wants. Have you noticed any defensive adjustments -- -- -- you've seen it. And the way the defenses are playing you whether it's from two years ago to now. Or even the start of the season to now. I mean I think. Teams teams that played a little bit different -- working the -- You know we've got three receivers on the field though no peak three linebackers on the field. So the two of the nickel and -- -- -- it take I don't know. Bring an -- cornered him. And I think that's changed a little bit just cause he's been. -- -- were running team this year parent this year than in years past. And obviously with the threat -- he's an actor a thinking there. More focused on that stuff but think that that's changed a little bit especially towards that hill and here and you know that that might be part of the lack of protection that a lot of it and -- then self inflicted and just kind of then. Not exceeding expenses as well eat Kosher. What would you say you've seen more. Single safety looks this year than any year before. Not meant I think to single seat belt. I think we played better defense in the senate and you know he knows he's so well I don't groups even more or less and you know you always see a lot of -- definitely snapped it. I think some of these have complained of fatigue it and and that can be a little bit over it. -- -- that would have when you when you did talk I'll bring in a safety -- bring in. Traditional corner you think that's generally Billick. You -- your success in the run game has created a scenario work where the opposing defense wants to focus more on that. Yeah I've definitely and so I think when you. -- turn on the tape did you play -- acquaintances biggest thing it's you know we were trying to get the bulky and -- as much as possible. Whether it's running the ball you know and he has thrown at your homers have screening which. We got her Rabinowitz who are screaming had an avid -- The last few weeks in a lot of that I think it has people -- you know I'm a little bit better. Ryan obviously with a disappoint season like this everyone's going to beef. Point fingers looking for changes mean obviously as -- starting quarterback. You're gonna be rated the top of a lot of people's list you ever go in -- know think about that going into a gamer throughout a week how much you let that. Affect you not only mentally but even physically do you press to maybe try to make some things happen to. Got to prove that you wanna be and should be the starting quarterback going forward with this organization. I mean it it's a hard thing yet not this economy and I think we're all. As players we're all human. And the understand that there's a lot of criticism and a lot that's been put on the you don't. Play the quarterback position especially at this level you can handled and so for me I mean it has been the last year's been a change for me just in -- -- love the people unless he's a little bit in terms of you know being -- -- on his easy it is not. Over Cheever all that. It's it's been a transition that -- -- -- and see the other side there. You know beat the highest paid quarterback -- not about the first round pick but there. You know a guy that -- expectations. An and we haven't met and I haven't met them here so it's been disappointing. You know -- that -- doesn't affect the way that I play on Sunday it has -- I've prepared throughout the week. But he gave me definitely in our defeat and go about it wears on him well. I think I'd be Lyon -- didn't it didn't Wear a little bit and it. Certainly doesn't let the way that I go Obama is sort of -- Attacking game abundant. Those orbit Ryan Fitzpatrick joining us here.
