    It's was Kelly what is good JBoss. Boss my right it gave the buzz to notebooks JBoss plus. Technology bust plus better on WGR. Sports Radio 550. Yeah. They don't five sun is shining. And this guy is in studio. All is right with the world and the patriots thing. Good to calls industrial 55888550. To 550. Quite days there were development. Nothing really well right I think we talk about what punt coverage and yeah I think so I think Ron Brooks was really effective excellent game excellent moneyweek adult and that'll be your morning. Not surprised at this right. Now I'm not and you kind of saw. The writing. But it put on the wall a little bit just based on how things kind of went down in San Diego we knew. That the bills looked at this offense. Under. With EJ Manuel as their quarterback. And they news. You would think they they knew that they had to win a certain type of way it's the formula that we saw through the first two weeks. Where they rarely limited what he did as a quarterback. They went with more high percentage stuff and allowed the run game we take over the turnovers did the the one of the determining factors of the game and and just wanted to limit the mistakes from EJ Manuel and that's tough. I mean you can only there's only one certain way game can go for you to win a ballgame like that and you have to be waiting for the majority of the game. If they have to come back from a deficit of ten points or more two possessions. It's not great it's not a great look and I don't think. I don't think that they've done that with the with EJ Manuel the cornerback come back from a a ten point plus deficits though. I think it all plays into the decision for Doug essentially saying OPEC. Now to into. It's the AFC east still attainable. The playoffs are still attainable in the AFC. And to be quite frank. He probably doesn't know we have a job next year if he has if he doesn't make the plants. So all of that played into it in dug around made the stamp saying this is my call I don't care have disagreements that's essentially what he's that. you make that you put that in your blog that he made the statement he eventually did say that he told Doug here's what I'm doing and eventually did say. There was agreement at that point half but he clearly made it sound like you know this was my decision and 94 in the gym here's what's going on. He said. Very he was asked if there was agreement from all fronts coaching staff front office. And his immediate response was I didn't ask for an agreement. Stuff that's that's a pretty stark quote it at least to me just from covering the team in. And everything that goes along with it but. I think. The fact that there are on the same page regardless. Doug had made it abundantly clear yesterday. That this was his call and his call and if it works. He'll probably save his job and he'll be the head coach and when he petite but the only way it works is if they get to the post season because they pulled the record on their first round quarterback in year two. After fourteen starts at which is pretty something that. No one really does all that often in the NFL I can remember. Only a couple of instances that it happened with last. Games then than it did with EJ Manuel now is this probably the best thing that could happen for EJ Manuel I think so but. All the same PS to deal with the perception that he's now first round Do you think they'll get calls in the second Joseph is generate a 550 do you think. That you know what you just talked about Marron in the statement and and that you know I didn't need agreement. Do you think he did did that because if he went to the GM and or the CEO. They might say well listen we draft kit first that I a traded up to get Sammy to help the kid get attention now. I don't know that that would I think Doug is just looking at this situation going. All right I know I need to go in the self preservation mode right now. And the only way that I can think to do this after watching. What what I've seen over the past four weeks. Is to change the quarterback and is it going to work out we don't know we have NC Kyle Orton takes place. Outside of practice it in the early portions of of the day. This is what Doug feels like will give him the best chance of winning and I was very sure to ask him. Do you believe this is a playoff caliber roster with Kyle Orton as starting quarterback. And he said yes I do think so this is playoffs or bust now productive round. Do you think you're you're at the game Sunday in Houston your your this and and you were talking back as you can see it on TV that receivers were clearly frustrated or dare I say demonstrative how much you think that played into this decision. I don't think that played into it I think. Odyssey I think that's all out Doug wrote I really really do and what he. Believes it's the best now one of the one of the by products of this will be the receivers will be a bit happier or at least appeared happier on tape. Because you saw instances. Many throughout. The past couple of of Robert Woods getting frustrated. With inaccurate passes. Mike Williams got frustrated a few times against Houston Sammy Watkins even me to hand jester early in the game where he's like that the Paula DePaula. This is. The that is not one of the important reasons as to why this to happen now. The most important reason is because Doug morrow is Hate this is. This is my livelihood this is my shot and he's a bit weird spot because not often when you have the preconceived notions of the certain time lines of head coaches not often do you see. A head coach in their second year Oakland excluded. Do you see a head coach going a win now I gotta win now but it's all. Brought in they're the catalyst is the sale of the team and the fact there's going to be a new boss in town in literally a week and a debt. So it all plays into it for Joseph is here in studio. Brought to buy New York's outlet liquor what's your outlet 8030550. To join us. And I'll go to chuck thanks for holding on your which you'll be here on WGR. Are you doing well this might sound goofy but this two part series. Last year when many. Stripped of their annual. I think the public that haven't. This guys not getting up to what we thought. So they turned around thought maybe bright drifting very I'll be receiver that might make manual better. Instead earlier rounds or however they're thinking. But mathematical dispute with they register today at this player they were gonna give much you can see Charlie that's what million dollars or in the the first common now. At the time and they think the reason they're called the probably the sector emerged here Studebaker probably draft another quarterback looks well. That's just who I feel about it but probably totally well thank you very much have a day. Well. I would I would disagree 100% decline in that they had had date that what they're doing is with four site. But they did it because they thought Manuel wasn't good. It is so draft in the first place now there's it they had they had hoped. Going into this year for each Emanuel of course that it when and if their minds when they drafted Sammy Watkins they had a lot of hope for him. Yeah write it but if it because just like they did it because they knew they quarterback in the second round at the that doesn't make any sense yet. Now I should limit the trait they should've done it they did it that got all of that they've got kind of scramble from here and see what happens but they shouldn't done it was a bad idea on draft day. And today it looks like a well the. Entire thing with Sammy Watkins is. That they would surround. EJ Manuel with as many playmakers is possible that's what really this is all about they wanted to. Make it as conducive. Eight as conducive a situation for EG that's up and we talked about all offseason and and into training camp. And just how he would react in public more dynamic offense could be with him. But what we saw is. He wasn't mean it just looked like the same moving parts from last year. When when they got out there and and the type of game plan that they were calling up for EJ Manuel. Well I don't think they went into the Sammy Watkins pick and said EJ stinks we need to get a guy so he doesn't think so that. I think they went into it saying hate this this is the guy that could bring EJ Manuel to that level talking. And but it just never came to fruition. This are hitting it much time they don't they didn't you that's it they should have. But they didn't get it's such a complex situation because it's all underscored by the ownership of the team that really not I'm not sure how much I believe that. They should be worried. Mean of Brennan's gonna stand or is gonna fire the coach and GM. Maybe I mean I think I think Doug Maroney is the most at risk. Of of that three you to talk to. And and I think he kind of feels that and I think that's why people the reports feel that with a ownership change to be honest I mean the bills have done very little. In Maroney has done. Well nothing in the league really you know he's got a lot to grow we said that coming into this year and sure yeah I I get that he feels pressure part of the problem and I mean this sincerely. Part of problem with that some might have with this move is that that's what this Google's been doing for fourteen years. Coach feels that. for the long term plan I gotta say but not when a couple games I get fired the next year anyway and the bills are over so well and and you get everybody's happy because you've gone to that like yours say we always love the next guy. That was next it will be an ex coach Martha Obama Edwards. Fire around Schwartz is the coach you know what like Schwartz guy he's that. And then maybe they'll draft a first round quarterback and we can sit here and play the game again I'm not upset about the move. It's just don't. This is how you feel on the spotlight. I. I think the one thing that interest thing is. I was listening to the Mike and Chris yesterday on the way home from the stadium and there's that is that You know usually the the move to change the quarterback. Doesn't coincide with the first week at the fans get really hot and bothered about it and it happened this time I died I want I want to disagree trying to Edwards was was jettisoned in week 20 J. P. Losman was pulled in week four. That is how it goes over and it was what were where was everybody really remember Edwards in week after week one. Was everybody going crazy guys or on benchmark and yes they opened up against Miami and I think he threw the ball counts on fourth was at the with the previous year were became trend of Edwards and make it true that pulled the this is what they view it just feels different because. We want it to a The difference is that I don't want it to feel anything as well that the difference probably is that people believe in the defense and people believe in the talent on the offense in the shut this team has. Arguably more child and it's at any point in the last ten years and they need anything quarterback and circle back discussed we're having look at the division the jets are meth. You beat Miami three straight times two different quarterbacks. And this is a New England is just awful he Miami's more and the Jack it but however that the division it's just wide open yeah wide open. I feel like we go through this with whenever I don't think this is legit I really don't think that that they they lost to somebody by twenty points are out I watch the game last night that was that was that they offer Brady but they also adamant their defense got shot the they did they. They didn't dress either of their boundary receivers and I thought that was very very interest and I mean all they dressed as fell in terms of the bigger target. On the outside. And real an dot samples were not active and healthy scratches so I've. I don't know I I wonder what what's going on in terms of this happening every year at the patriots and we'll put this. It's happened more frequently and it's gotten worse and worse guess who they play this week Cincinnati Cincinnati in Cincinnati. They should probably get crossed who is coming off They should probably be an and that case the bills and the patriots are to a three outlook it there there. Home game and knowing what it's okay it's and so I think they'll still lose etiquette is absolutely. The Cincinnati defense is very good and they lose their loss to the angles last year I think Greg he's lost once or twice that and that it's all been there the look like one of the best teams in the league. The cited New England always does this last year. They open the season by beating the pedals and the jets and the hawks and falcons for well that the slow starts every year. They lost to the angles than they beat the saints. While the jets beat the patriots are targets beat the dolphins 5531. The Steelers the last there were six and last year the narrative was. Has Brady lost it but they were sent it yet evident to work there's a three whatever this year they are 2.2 and one of the teams they beat already fired its coach. And the other one. Was the vikings party changed their quarterback who they like that the team that they PR There's no impressive. Game and that's why I think it's and Joseph it isn't just. This isn't just well you know it's Brady doesn't have receivers and all the line can't block. And last night their run defense was porous their pass defense was bad they just. 300 yards in the first half credit they're in teams have gone Darren over the years and got smoked in a night game but. TJ they just looked like on like they had no clue what they were doing the had to force the turnover in their first three games. Yeah and all over the line and they got they got no sniff of Alex Smith who just was sacked five times by the dolphins the week before. They didn't get near Alex Smith last night Joseph I wanna amid in my got a one time and maybe challenge houses. That's what can you tell us that with bills needed Kelsey. He's. Argued draft well anyway I Jeremy. And asked me. When they didn't drafty Ron used to think what was. In the draft this year. It was I don't blame you so mad matter what did you bring about the last trade. I've been campaigning for the ticket in four years is mentioned Travis urged Howard. There. He's out. My eyes and a book or. If you think Scott is find him on the team like guy. As one of your tight ends or Chandler is. I that the overall. I guess. Ignorance of trying to add a competent tight end. Mean Scott Chandler's. Solid they went to hockey route obviously it was a disaster army and work. They would of went they probably would have All that said. They have just gone. Maybe out of their way to answered a group I mean they've. They've added Scott Chandler great that was those though waiver wire pick up some buddy nix and but. Other than that it's been the hockey they picked up at her worst group of tight ends in the NFL got my high. What costume when it comes top spot in modern day tight ends they don't have a modern day tight end the they don't Atlanta is pretty similar with that right now I mean at least they had Tony Gonzales in years true I'd have to go through the rest the league and and think by. Burned out there in the discussion they are in the discussion 8030550. this guy is in studio Jim thanks holding on your on W Joseph big. Guys I don't wanna thank you. Clinton and her commitment to early and Wyden and it is that are different but in my And tomorrow that it all. Poultry camp. At that spot for. You and Joseph report that practice. In peace. All the here. And we thought in the preseason game and we. Even if pocket awareness in much better look at the opener at a bank camera under. Lot of bodies Recruitment here let's go that direction especially given what you would have read take away what you do you think that viewed Pat or proceed go to and that. Yeah I mean that's that's been the way it's kind of gone and I don't know that it's it was the pre season that was. Kind of the final crushing blow as to hey you know what if EJ starts struggle for a couple weeks straight let's let's were placed in here I think it's just. I think it's obviously the perfect storm of things that have happened over the course of the past six months and in effect. I think I would put less in the pre season just because. They didn't really plan at all and and the kind of erased a lot of the things I built from the pre season over the first two weeks. Because they they showed that if everything could kind of go their way. In any game they get turnovers their run game is going that that EJ Manuel could steer the ship correctly. But when that perfect game doesn't happen. What we saw the past two weeks have happened the bills should have won. On Sunday. That was their game if they had a competent quarterback. Behind center they didn't have that they realize that. And now there correcting it or so they think they're correcting Joseph here Stephen Hamburg next up on WGR red state. Left at home that they are gambling on the Internet as the Goodwin and stand at that there was a big geopolitical. And what he went up and gave up on him. My other question it wouldn't a living up to coordinator. There's certainly have this parents and we believe and I'm in Houston. And we just up the broke and at times. What are what are what are you supposed to do though if you're the offensive coordinator and you're limited to a very small box of things you can call for Honestly what do you what do you do if you keep running the ball just right just like Obama. Your run and do well they are a credit related to running a scheme that protected manual that's for sure. Well I mean there have been blowing them unpopular back and I mean that looks up and gave up what. Would you like. The first look at them I know it's not taken the additional. Looks like yeah well it's. When they're out there like okay you're in good to have make you didn't. Now he's. It never does not happen. He's just an accurate out of leaders do it on purpose when we get back gentlemen I've got some context on the New England Patriots. I'll tell you about the last time they were too into. And the last time they played the bills. Early in the season after two and are not long ago there's listen. Some bad news in the but there's some good news to us so little a little and that's bad news but a lot of good. Explaining this is probably a good good although let's get over there the so I think I think the good news is bad in the bad news we'll get to that last and the patriots to call and trying to win the Bob tickets pair of tickets to in silver bullet then Wednesday December 17 the first divers that are. evaluated dollars courtesy of Latin nations general content rules apply. Called 6449878. And collar ten. What a pair of tickets we have more tickets to give away the rest we caller ten right now 6449878. You can purchase tickets by the way beginning Saturday morning at At tickets dot com your chance when it right now Joseph misguided joining us in studio graduate your outlet what's your outlet and I think his premises. Jeremy says it's. He this going in the right about New England had to be a smidgen of bad. It's hot a touch joke. Of bad news drink during you're not aha and a lot of good news I think he underplayed the smear I think he did just that just this underplayed its image smudged his message okay. So mix of bad news. Go on last time the patriots were to win two. In season it was 2002 well. Day lost. Back to back games and they came here. Patriots to a two in buffalo. That game. This indicating. a lot. 5228. Well that was actually the bills at a third quarter they did a fourteen point and the it's sort of like I've straight possessions six consecutive touchdown drives that the game the patriots ran down the bill's all over and over again so they won that game institute when he patriots that who went to went on to. Well and full well they're fine so they only. They only lost two more games in a right here yet am lost two more game as head into the rest of the season. Yup that's so what it so what's this good news out of the good news. Good news. No loss by the with a Seahawks and 49ers. Lost the good news is that in that season the patriots were 222 years ago. Their two losses by a combined. Point soul. And the cardinals they lost that was Kevin games reasons related republic patriots as a late fumble. Like the patriots in position to win a late I do remember. Like those that loss for the cardinals got early eighties he got scouts if you Google. They then lost the next week at Baltimore I point. Penalty that they've taken it that's Google the ports up and crazy out some other. Point is there were two and two like. All patriots don't know their final losses were relieved he barely blips. This year they're to. Their losses by a combined forty points. Most of which coming last. Seven coming last night and thirteen coming to the dolphins. Last night they were shot in the first half and I looked this up I just remember this. It's the second time they've been shut out half this season the opens up about in the second half. They gave up one straight points the dolphins last night to give up what 2827. Rout of the chiefs. The patriots. I know that the patriots. They're not the same team. The window is closing it is then slowly closing many people thought it would close faster than it is it's still on its way down. But this is the by far the most vulnerable that team is then a long time even back to when Brady got her and they went eleven and five. Maybe is correct because I I got to rise when corrected. Gostkowski missed. A 42 yard field with six seconds left with the thing was did it would have had a touchdown. To put him in front and it was called back because of Rob Gronkowski holding penalty. And that eventually Gostkowski missed a 42 yarder with six seconds to go in the game so they had they had taken the lead with a touchdown but it was right now by apparently you haven't picked the bills. Coming to depict the patriots. That might be better than pick in the bills Norton. Well no idea that. I'm series because got a series still I don't know I got to predict the bills with Kyle Orton of course. In this did help out this Egypt or you're lucky to pick the bills or you know I can't go come and join join with this let's is got a pilot certificate the patriots Olympic program because I think it's just as relevant Is this a quarterback change in last night's game people saying like the division up for grabs what it calls her second you know folks Ronald. We'll directed to the patrons are do. Dangles this week loss. Tangled in a monopoly on which in New England angles coming off but lost. New England coming up up what kicking hue Jackson is knee. Very very good offensive coordinator. Item has lost to a three are at the bills A against the big guys don't don't don't take too but I try a little bit Eric you pick the outcome I know I'll let the Joseph picks the patriots are good at it until I went three at the bills win. Home jets. Win. Bearers. Where's. Broncos. Where Foxboro. In July and Morgan. Newton. Laws. At the colts went. Home lions. When schedule I'm not even done yet others I'm not even John this is the point I'm gonna make him win at the Packers. While it's great loss at the chargers. We home dolphins where they've lost two at the jets and that home built. That schedule can they not only are they looking as bad as they've looked in ten years. Is archer. In five weeks. They play the Broncos colts lions Packers and chargers. If they get behind they close the with a three division games but that's murderous and before the Broncos like. I don't know if you own defense like Jay Cutler Peyton Manning and Matthew Stafford Rogers and Philip Rivers in six straight weeks. Thank you NFL. Like. Dude John right. Can get anything the patriots I'll believe it when Honestly. I. I know Jeremy what it's always been look at that schedule but they don't have Hadley but because they've all robotic voice on the first play the point is that this is not the same page and I am right now I have quit they have losses to Alex Smith understands Bryant and a totally understood. Told and they also have losses to Kevin top. In 2012 they didn't get blown out like Kevin OK great I I've just New England has been dominant for so long I'm just gonna. Believe. That it and they can go 97 and still win. AFC east ought to your question that's actually take product and it's Kyle or no one's really take a sledgehammer. And take out the rest of the window if if it's opening to 2008. Hours Aetna And it's got famous spot okay Matt thanks holding on your I would gently on WGR. Gentlemen good morning how is that our group of the and media members that. It's. An army commodity got to give yourself credit. All I like and I don't think get a lot of I know you're for the most part. Have depended packet. I think whatever it would take. You. The other competitive equation. We've got these big we've got a top of the coordinator the question are gonna quarterback the question mark. Murrow and the Israeli question mark and we were talking about it last week seeing repeated over culture of their own to go out of our own. Well like that move because Totally. I don't he would be the all I don't really any good I'm going. I think equation. Security very people are your. And it helped that. We don't know if it happened really helped look like that are. could go ahead and is an Arab partners or go then and you run the rock and that looked like you got a call I indicated that it encourage. Maybe it was a eager. That's ask about Matt thanks Joseph. I know he's saying the opposite may look different I was gonna ask you when the offense change and I don't think it well I think differently here's what they will do differently. They will not run read option without. Because he's just he's just not that but. I think by enlarge their philosophy will remain the same. Because. Orton is known world they understand what he has they mean that's part of the advantage that they had when they sign him because they know what type of player that he hits but. With that said they also know what is limitations are and I think they still wanna go with a similar formula. To what they've been doing although they are not they won't be as afraid to open things up that's what is the biggest part of. Sit talk about if we believe. You know that the coaching staff was reigning things in. Or maybe even you know the tempo it was up pebble last year and now they're taking more time they're getting the personality and doing all that that's an curious about. Maybe go to some other plays that he had but he wasn't calling does maybe try and drive at temple to just do some things differently because. Now he's got a veteran quarterback in there. And can you can trust Kyle Orton to understand what he wants to do maybe more so that each yet and that mean actually executed but at least he could grab the concept better. Listen this past this past Sunday. Being left so many passing yards on the field because it inaccurate throws and that's even before yards after that even before. Everything I mean. But over the middle to or two over the middle right to Sammy Watkins that was just off. Mean how was the rose Robert Robert Woods had three catches and twelve targets. Well target. 25%. Completion percentage to rob points that's a joke and I think. If they had. Listen if they had Kyle Orton playing like this past week. Seeing him in the limited capacity that I have been basically routes vs air I'm thinking the probably win it I think. I think if it was. I give is just a early competent quarterback it would have won that game but EJ Manuel just did not play well and in the and play well either. But he had time to hit certain road and he didn't hit them. here brought to buy New York's outlet liquor what's your outlet 8030550. To join us. in Kentucky Iran not WG mr. this right ahead. Thanks guys questions for in the future I'll just watch it ought to play it does it feel like. And maybe. Each day a lot of those planes or cold front that checked into passes. You know all the stuff happened pretty happy with seven back of my clock in departed are app. Wanted to let you know one right there you are a lot of people situations where he checked Rollins as you point out total vote. Didn't make it I wonder about how much run pat called a quarter was was callable. I don't know what you Jeremy and releasing checking line of scrimmage looked know the thing is that they don't a lot of times they don't have to run checks because they'll loan package plays so that the play will be. This package and then when the team lines up defensively like this. It becomes a right and the all the entire offense would would know that it's like a lot of what place can be. I'll tell you that from what I've. Gathered understood learned you know let's put at number word on it. Manuel has not been prepared the way that he should be and when looking at. Someplace when timing is off. Right there's a way to forget which one it is fine. Is played awards like. Watching altitude Joseph we have to get the point where there things we look for so much them the timing is off like sometimes his drops don't seem to match his protection. Rights where it's like wait did he did he just do the wrong rock which you know it's. Sometimes tough to know but. When the receivers are out of their breaks yet. And he's throwing in the looks like two more steps still to come that looks like the drop it it also looks like that may be someone got beat up front and there and there's a defensive in his face and hurrying up in either because he's accused of back further. So there's a lot about this offense that has looked. Out of seen how many times over the past two weeks has been three or four that he's throwing to a receiver there even looking because that's not the progression of the play because there was someone in his face he tried to hurry things up. And as we've seen over the past four weeks. That way and there pressure he panicked a bit and he does not go through it is with the necessary to work the technique totally drops off. And so does the accuracy and Romeo Crennel who's on the defense in Houston now he knew that they don't awful lot of pressure not known for dialing up top rusher but he did against Manuel it's like. You know I mentioned last week it's it's like the book is out and it's the book but. One way to be manual make see the pressure coming right that get pressure in his face make him look at it because. It kind of freaked out and he's been doing that and whether it's calling the wrong protections. Or having the wrong drops or making wrong reads or were running the wrong place. There are things that are happening in this offense. Again from gathering that. That's why the change was Joseph here 8030550. Get a break talk more about the change and EJ two Kyle Orton. And how to usual approach the bills' offense and how much that might change we get back your calls as well on WG. Yeah off today so we'll hear player reaction. There would their reaction option tomorrow and get back to where Joseph here. A lot more certain with him and you're holding on we get here we have openness segments in the 9 o'clock hour with more calls. One of Vermont about a great perk of going on for you right now at WGR 550 dot com with the top dogs it was not like everybody has lived here is it's gone the Multiple times you know what I'm talking about. Absolutely delicious there on top dogs looked over real hardwood charcoal freshly hand battered onion rings made every day. Real milk shakes made with real ice cream that's the some of the stuff negative ads right now you can get a twenty dollar gift card. That's not dot. If you go to our buffalo parks program at its at our home WGR 550 dot com you'll find it right and page click on the buffalo perks link. And and you can purchase the gift card it will be mailed out this he'll get it fast. And it's good at any buffalo area Ted's location that the twenty dollar gift card for top dogs and you get only ten Joey and we're talking a moment ago about whether the offense will change. What about how defense is play the bills and will that change we've we've heard like single high safety jam in the box EJ Manuel. What changes now predicting from what difference is that due to the I think what. We're gonna see this this coming week. This upcoming week against Detroit anyway it is and just trying to figure out what this identity of the bills the bills offense will be at first and when they do that I think. You'll probably see a little bit more basic stuff and then once they try to sort of figure it's essentially going to be elect the first game of the regular season again. Where you can kind of kept the team off guard. Because they don't really know what to expect with that but. I think all in all. What CDs. Is them tried to limit what bills into on the run they still know that that's going to be going to try to be their bread and butter. Man and then go from go from there by. In terms of single high safety forcing them to throw. I don't know that Apple's he has much of it is because I think the book there is enough of book I'm Kyle you know he can growth the specific. I don't actually after that this I have no idea what to think that this offense I mean. I'm gonna go back in and watched the star against the Eagles last last week you know Matthew didn't already I'm yesterday get around it. But excuses right right right to do your job which but culture. Yeah and I'm I'll be getting into it today I think at some point but that. I don't know what to think of Kyle and I all I can go from is what I've seen in two they're witches. Basically all that. I've been able to seek I'll do an remind everybody who might be wondering. The practice for the most part in season are close to Delhi training camp you can watch every single. Moment that we're out. Therefore anywhere from fifteen appointments and it's the beginning portion which is individual and you don't see any one on ones against defensive backs or anything like that mr. street. Routes there you know practicing without a defender on the steeper sell. I mean he's he's accurate are those idiots of its stride but I. I don't know what type of guy he is right now in terms. Of being in with an offense and being the guy asked to leave them the 8030550. Charlotte and Seattle ala Joseph here on WGR. I guess sort. I own. It'll well but it's up up and do the right move because it's frustrating to those who can't open kaine able. But now lives in particular patent. And tension and it would kill let me. Go to frustrated single public record gains and other from Quebec. conventional and you know an in area of ethnic yet. And by the list that. We could've been more actively engaged in Apatow Egypt like There's during the well they didn't do it on our season the paper the data indicated it may not like our guy. And you know. Right now couldn't have right now the problem It's not very go listen I I know I understand that that's going to be a popular. The opinion on popular narrative about wanting to protect him in the off season I honestly think. And I I think this has been backed up by things that I've heard too. Really thought that Lewis was going to be a good backup for them they really did they liked what he did last year. And they thought if there's a to where we should Wear EJ Manuel went down with injury that that Lewis would be able to come in just based what he showed. But that all went awry in training camp the pre season one that stunk up the so I don't think they were trying to protect him by not going. But going after media a better free agent quarterback to I think they probably should have went after someone yes. But I honestly think that was their mindset going into the offseason. And that's why it played out the that. It's it's week five where you can I can issued the first moratorium of the season and from forum the bills were not meeting San Diego. With a different. I think that's fair Orton does if Orton is playing and it stopped trying. Rivers reports was carpet if you go look at the game longer the second half went run run run run run run punt. They knew that they were going to be challenged by the office they had three separate opportunities in the second half to get it within one possession and they didn't. I'm saying that the bills that I know they didn't and the chargers more afraid of them. The chargers when I know what it but if it's a different quarterback does that happen now that's if it's a different quarterback the score and in the is on the field and don't feel the way that they perhaps the bills for one plot and the chargers really trying to score points. I don't wanna say. I I moratorium on it before and I'll Houston maybe three years ago about your fifth I'll give Houston and not getting tedious and it. That team beat Seattle. By nine points. If Kyle Orton the quarterback. Or if Michael Vick is the quarterback and beating San Diego and it's spot and get one more call with Joseph here in New Jersey which he'll be right ahead. Good morning guys are saying today my call first of all I think it's a good week them. Not gonna get into the homeland you'll figure I've been call initial year ready to eat. Any group toward Emanuel scramble well that was obvious yet.

    the guy after four starts and expecting him to learn while watching Kyle Orton play. I don't expect much from Kyle Orton I think he would be better -- Vijay at the very least because Kyle Orton has seven the NFL starts on his Reza. But I'm not expecting much. And it becomes in the game to get two games as you get three games would -- -- against Detroit to go back to eject. I think once you've been benched EJ. I think you're turning the page in my opinion -- turn the page on Egypt and I don't believe that he gets better. By not getting practice with the first -- during the week and by standing on the sideline. Watching Kyle Orton run the offense I don't see how that helps his development. And it's painful to watch. And you might be saying Howard

And good morning how -- yeah. How. Good did you take garbage out. The garbage how. Remember -- okay well. Little bit hectic out that shows circuit like -- -- the -- that little sore. Well quite Ozzie let me I was concerned for three months that you does that piles of garbage at your house. No matter what kind of walked out my driver and a -- you guys. And that. -- think. Thank you very much good to have you. This coach. So you know -- scrimmage last night we're gonna get to a gazillion questions about Mikhail -- ankle in a moment but overall -- what did you personally see. Take out of the scrimmage last night. But -- to -- -- -- the government that thought was that actual. I'll be all -- scrimmage was big get. You know rely on an important. 42 -- try to simulate and that situation more players that make quick quick decisions under some brush. A lot of players special -- all or action and then play well effectively. I know that we're especially in Bridgeport opera Jordan. But I thought we accomplished most of up. What did you think McGregor Rangel. I thought it played well. You know we're just for showing what an original player. You do a lot of chances it could play. You obviously critical not it was a good for short -- -- Yeah I how much. How much do you judge on him based on -- you know -- scrimmage that was mostly non checking there was some hitting but. Certainly not like a regular. NHL regular season game so how much do you take out of last night from him and how much do you just say I was a scrimmage we'll see what happens when they play games. Well if you didn't notice some should be disappointed. Are so I think what you're doing noticeably different policy opportunity on the play he. You may you have to get credit for that because he's making out against. You know the best players that we haven't -- no longer that it can junior player. Make some players that are younger than him. You don't junior's legacy of 1617 year old dole you make of those players to get settled plays against good players. It. Let you are our noses they were a little bit of -- buzz and RN but it seems to have gone away. I what is your plan with him. Are you gonna play in an off five games are eager are you gonna see how he does in the first game and wing it from there what have you thought through what you would like to do with him on this in the five game window that you can have. What we -- been got that far I think the first have to try to evaluate him and in this first three or four bit amp. You know it looked. Evaluate players that work. You know possibly coming off injury here if you were up. You know we've got. They can Kirby isn't. They're all contractors we're going to court Corbett who allowed caught Derek and are ready to play. You know of course scored a lot more we're sick -- chatter in this situation so it just valuation process he worries that. And and -- always fit that he's ready to play. Many that line last night Greg -- -- and Leino in spots a new player -- second season after. How many would consider disappointing season last year what what do you think about that group of three together which -- -- last night. Well I picture a lot in their history and that -- got a lot of fire viewed. Physical guy he talked a lot -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Believe we got the right side I would open -- -- situations implant. Left and they're shot outside that I like polite the -- Well what it jitters triggered the chances. I just like if you -- -- create you'd like to see him out and issue a little bit better but. I know that are very imagined he would be like playing a little men so I thought overall it it looked good. With regard to that idea of putting -- with. Mikhail for. Gregory over such a young player like other challenges that he'll face it obviously there's the the physical adjustable. And how much of it is psychological or mental or you know worried about. Pressure Earl Warren about trying to impress the coaching staff especially in such a condensed schedule here in a short time frame -- is one of the bigger concerns how he will react. You know psychologically or mentally. I think our young players you know worried all the you know every -- -- -- way. Last night you know that -- situation. You know he's electric -- There I have -- gonna make it seem it on the -- case he's coming from junior had a real world junior tournament. Idle all -- optical trichet. And I and I know how do you feel as a young player. You know almost an -- actually you know you're gonna be just physically you look around you see some of the bodies easier. The players that are six warships are the bigger stronger. All the emotions are wrong. Our culture your -- It's ideal automatic here. You know I get mail that if they can't -- -- -- can't handle. And puke -- -- a -- and not to play them you know it's out of it but not quite ready to play. I wanted to follow up on that because you went through this the similar concept the player. Up from juniors and in in the trial window and and Tyler Myers obviously -- at times looked extremely poised and very competent any any stock and for good reason. So far from what you've seen from Greg Greg guy I would assume it does not appear that he is intimidated by his surroundings in the -- You know what does not. I think you guys write I think he's it is reported young man -- See you complement -- but his ability. Again it's. You know which I don't hear the prospect camp and -- -- -- a couple days campus and I hit it hit it short period I don't value to fair. You know if there's the week goes on here we'll get a little bit harder and situations some of the drills Libya. A good way to look -- you -- some do that physical capabilities but. It's a short period of time to make they're up to that tough decision. And and don't get the play against that. You know opposition -- the outcome after you play it in their. Does that hurt his chances of making the team the only have a few days of practice. -- -- -- Does that does that you talk about how you really don't have a lot of time this week does that hurt. Triggering those chances because it's such a short camp. Well I think you -- Obviously. Immediately -- The world junior tournament to evaluate it. I would be nice to evaluate some of our players want it that jail. You know -- it pretty decent game. We don't want the competition is really get wrapped up. They. Don't -- It was real good. Please be sure you're aware. -- -- on the next lap later. You know I their opposition to become an opulent and and not be able played some of those games. It's a little bit -- a disadvantage if you don't get the game. Greg. -- erupt with a sabres head coach -- realistically how many roster spots do you think are up for grabs. Well it it is not a lot of roster spot at the -- We're looking at a roster that. You don't get back into. -- -- did last night we have night that we can play it. It ended up I -- those. Is set to look at each other -- root -- and at this doctor Erica are you gotta pick oppression and I've got competition. How can also thank -- good up front I think there's there's a competition or couples spot. Depending on which way we go in the actor looked like role. You can't keep nine defenseman canyon. I know we can't no no. I never have kept Knight Batman -- -- thought she worded that a little bit larger impact here. What do you how many defenseman you wanna keep would you would you keep. I guess first let me. Phrase it this -- would you keep more defenseman than normal because of the compressed schedule maybe the risk of injury back there and that he might wanna have more than normal depth. Well based on last year it it ought to as your previous question a padlock to keep I -- -- you know perhaps -- that's -- I don't know if you know that started you're repair their rockets are still at it but. But asserting that you could never have -- -- as Anderson you have injury -- you need to adapt the Tibet and you want to keep this much is your depth but the fact that you came up. How many would you wanna keep. -- -- -- 978. Or your other choices obviously. Probably. But I thought well you know I think yeah all right I prefer eight. You know it is always uncomfortable for the players that if you know what you're shooting where. We don't normally. Elect -- beach area it -- -- -- -- players that aren't playing but I think it short. Beaten you know a picnic and that we have talked about what direction that we can -- You know that's a possibility that there could be other possibility that the -- that we as an organization that staff. Along aren't yet talked about. No -- approaching 48 -- Let -- talking about a defenseman Adam parties and other new player that you don't have a whole lot of of experience with and he's trying to make an impression in a shortened season -- -- You go back and look at video of him with the SARS and how do you get a better idea of what -- -- -- you're gonna get out of him and whether or not he figures in that eight. Well that that's exactly what his future is if you -- backing you look at. A lot of the situations. That it played a lot here you go through so it really put through. You know you're defending your skills you -- -- -- -- skill than if you look better handle better feel of what this play areas. You -- -- -- almost at -- I get to know personality on occasion practice and work out what. What you do go through a lot of video when you're not accustomed to seeing a player a lot of them -- kind of player -- give him. A lot more -- better have a lot of you're out of straight NL west -- we have watched they're quite a bit if you want. What do you think of him he looks big -- looks like if if you're talking about your team. Getting big error and -- to play against -- I'm not I've not seen a lot of men in dallas' GA physical presence what he had. Certain -- dear team is tough for anyone tell that last like being a scrimmage but he certainly does add the size of the Blue Line. Yet -- you know I put them in a category good defender first. Good luck over. And the big man that can metal band I think he has the physical -- -- Definitely. I decree reached the respect and that -- -- For the most part it sucked out of place at. And here you anywhere whether it's -- defensemen extra forwards will you change the way you coach in terms of healthy scratches were you rotate guys. We have almost like a taxi squad and and rotate guys are normally they would be out of line up for a week or two weeks maybe it would only be a gamer to adjust to keep people fresh. Look at Motorola -- you're gonna have to take into consideration. Well the fact that we've got a lot of players and happy to play YouTube might start. Oh start there's forty games -- peninsula some guys or restart the drop off in May you have a game awful album. -- recover Soria I think those are possibilities that you could bring. He doesn't different players. It and carry it -- especially player in one night to get physical guy the next night. Those are all the things that there that we talked about and you're happy Geithner. And you're you're due out the -- some players that definitely gives you an option in this short. Do you they wouldn't win the the last time there was a short season 9495. You were an assisted in Florida right. Do you remember the staff doing anything differently coaching differently -- philosophically changing anything because you had -- compressed 48 game schedule and -- that experience. Being on a staff at that point help you now. Well I've had conversations with what several coaches and our duty and I think that period back and the consensus is. You know try that short can't let it try to keep saying there's direct and what kept them and rely on the -- -- -- well. Or. And -- and injecting a budget news -- that may take some time or burned inside salt. The experience Perry is -- -- I -- on on what you know about your game at the players that there are best in certain situations got a little. And trial period to bring somebody into -- role. The couple. Got the game. Don't practice -- it and then how we want -- -- and how wanna get better every day and that conversation captivity. Because -- -- the a lot of perky personality how they're dealing and what's it like in the next few days and take some input from them. -- on where they people they the players meet the most works or. It all negotiation off. Lindy Ruff was this year I'm -- he'll ask you about what do you think is going to happen in terms of the way the game is hauled officiated. Last week -- talked about how you know he still believes -- need more scoring back in the game he'd like to see it opened up. I read something yesterday that said Steve buys him and David oil said they have not been told anything about any kind of obstruction crackdown. Or anything different coming out of the lockout have you heard anything do you think anything it's going to be caught it are they gonna call it tighter again or not. I have I've heard everything absolutely return to comment on or or just the -- -- I know we have -- ball. If you haven't coaches their moral beliefs so it may have a better handle some becomes that -- What would you like to hear from them. Again I figured if we can keep it we can keep our kick up people -- -- basic game. It's a tremendous hit it the big games start. Get bogged down a little bit where along. But not so much that the puck carrier. And it's just my opinion are not plucky archer. But it is a guy away from the pocket trying to fight to get to the net. Whether you re not sure tree entry and that you -- -- -- your -- Get that actor. Better or strict like -- at at the -- A lot of cross site -- -- you're your take them maybe they can put out. That let me just forty champ I think the older players that are that -- out. And maybe crept back a little bit in our game and -- don't you don't see a lot of it but look at air. There are in my opinion I thought like you got eliminated. And you said you're happy with Tyler Ennis and Tony Dotson last slide up playing your basing your top two senators. Comparing it to the last you know 56 years where do you feel you are from roster standpoint at yet at center with the top two lines. But I bet that's going to be interesting. Part I liked the way old he -- it says you're all excited that it last year outlook interests. The Eagles stop lying. It brought it well. We ought it is ready to kick that next step that that the next step is Greer. I -- had a great summer tray here that they start in Rochester. There are -- they're the one injury he suffered. A lot but I thought he had will be a -- but he did real well. Is truly -- and the situation Tinker -- It if it's a situation where all guys. Are you get a few wall play situation bad that -- -- -- that -- -- Davis head coach Lindy Ruff -- here as they get ready for the opener. Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers that he will be -- every Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock part of receiver shows here on WG Errol -- thanks again. We're looking forward to having on all season thank you for your time and good luck the rest of the record all the practice and camp. All of our respect looked order in the future.
