    Fri, 19 Sep 2014

    It's not always Simon you know. More for the whole week. They're right away in the right situations. And he's image good reason. When it was when all of us again same reason we. Gave them. Got up close and we'll I was but didn't. They'll that the Miami well the second withdrawal. Wait wait fires to put it apartheid Sammy. Common a lot of minutes on my that old game and festival. Do you get any help from the film. Fight the good thing that would fight through. Yeah I don't know how long nagging injuries. This summit to. Hopefully thought that was about dot com and I've got 806 nothing football Friday bills in the chargers Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium the game is sold out turned on the TV sound listen to Merv Kelso and you know here on WGR Howard chairman Matthew. In a few moment to be joined by bills that coach dug around and you can join us and industrial 550 here on football try to get some football in numbers the moment as well relate. To getting back so Thursday night game if you went to bed at halftime it was pretty much finished out that way and in the first the 35 nothing at 5614. got blown out by Atlanta. For the bills with the injury update from from dug around sabres opened camp today there are three different sessions all open the public so you can have done the first tigris and are drawn to Buffalo Sabres in training camp and that about Auburn won last night fifth ranked team in the country ever won at Kansas State Kasay missed three field goals in that game. And also had a red zone interceptions so Auburn kind of escaped. We will get Q our numbers on football Friday we always like about the numbers for the upcoming game football Friday by the numbers got you by. Logan Valenti book binder and weintraub specializing in accounting tax and consulting services to privately owned business. I start with EJ Manuel numbers ballots gang. All right BJ completion percentage 66%. Up from 50% last year. EJ yards per pass attempt seven point eight after two games but from six point four it's very EJ has been sacked one time in 53 drop backs last season he was sacked. Seven point 8% of the time on drop backs this year it's one in 53 so numbers are my numbers this week and before Friday about them. got Hala I've got some football outsiders numbers the analytics folk and it football outsiders have a stat that. Is sort of a wins above replacement Agassi would say cult like yards about replacement. And they ranked all the NFL teams by the statistic. The Buffalo Bills right now are ranked third. In the week. two games and they point out that they can't start factoring in opponents. Until they've got a big enough sample games but right now the bills rank third overall. And they are seventh in offense fourteenth in defense and first in specialties. So pretty good start for the. My number is eighteen. By the end of the season Philip Rivers should have the eighteenth most passing yards in NFL history. He will likely pass this season Jim Everett. Eli Manning's gonna move up a bit. But rivers is about to pass Gene Kelly. Likely Jim Kelly and career passing yards. This season Philip Rivers has been a monster. When it comes the stats he also wins a lot of games. He said that colleges. And might have a good one here and Mike McCoy yeah sort of bad kickers in the playoffs to that bad coaches he let you it they've. They've cost them playoff games he's played well enough for them to win. It's 11 playoff game and a big penalty and a fumble we live in danger he hasn't been bad and then. Have still found a way to lose playoff game should be the jets if they had a good kicker one of the ticket its growth when. Last six seasons over 4000 yards passing his touchdown interception ratio in his career is better than two to one. His career quarterback rating if you like that is 96. He's really good best quarterback without a Super Bowl yes. That's quarterback without a Super Bowl appearance not a time he's been a one AFC title game right Austin doing and I think that did to the escort Michael possible growing. Think so we're better these many grade the deal have line officer has long Rogers has won. Yes. Yes. He's and it's I have a week earlier today select Colleen well this game I expect to go public affairs rivers and Cutler a lot not true. Jay Cutler does not have a better than 21. Touchdown interception ratio for 225. Touchdowns 105 interceptions. Last year he was 32 and eleven. Like that is stupid. Good day you can count on stupid turnovers from Jay Cutler I don't think you can count on them there. Not any at least so. And a team that still you know needed a push at the end of the season to make the playoffs and that it wouldn't division and it was just crazy. I think that that's part of the problem with rivers is that San Diego. Misses the playoffs and not consistently in there and then when it got in the playoffs out some games where they they should one go to one and they didn't win because of special teams breakdowns or whatever issues they they haven't missed very often miss years ago how many times they missed the last in his career got it up right. Amid pull up his her his her record in your because I think it was two years ago was his first losing season. As a starting quarterback. He's been good since pretty much today he showed up. What was for a report that's thing about that is gonna pass Jim Kelly. An all time passing list. And Jim ever to do is get it but passing Jim Kelly makes you think like I mean passing a hall of Famer thing. All right Philip Rivers career. They like you're looking up that sort of dark dark room we're gonna talk to separately probably know something reverses. The Doug our own show coming up here on WGR brought you by north with savings bank it's time to make the switch to northwest. By your west near GMC dealers is that the today for exceptional offers. By New York's only outlet liquor what's your outlet and by Geico fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more in your car insurance. Is Geico dot com or call 180947. It's. Sports Radio. Enjoyed Howard and Jeremy brought do you like north. Northwest savings bank it's time to make the and northwest why you question your GMC dealers visited showroom today for exceptional. What's your plan. And my guys go. 947. On old. I've got the rivers that some relief only one time in his career is matter record below 507. And nine. Well we wanted to talk about that on the list of things to bring up with a said coach joins us 1 bills drive good morning coach around its power and Jeremy how are you on his football Friday I'm doing well. Yes and and bills nation is as well so before it specifically in the San Diego. Asked it to auto start obviously Spencer are very happy with where the team is that as you look at. Overall the team you had a really solid effort offense defense special teams all around against Miami. What's pleased you the most it's only two games but as you look at overall your team what pleased you the most right now. Just the sense that will work and get better each day I think that's the most important thing influence the very long season obviously and our players are doing a good job journal we prepare themselves and you know we need to keep getting better each week I think that's the most important thing as we go through the season. How much of that is. Is it a leadership group on a team is it just players taking it on their own to make sure they're doing what they need to do in a week by week basis little bit of both little leadership of the players I think very good leadership this year with our captains You know obviously with the rest of the team phones while on the stimulus any new news or update on Robert Woods. Not just the situation are I don't know what the situation of today with the for progresses and we'll see you feel how are you going gets up there if he can't play on Sunday. In terms of how it affects your offense to talk about that little bit because deep at wide receiver is this one of the areas where maybe an injury is not as big problem for your club. Well I think any time. You lose a player I think you know obviously if it because it's concern I mean you know Robert Woods. He obviously is a very good player not to feathers here we we've been doing special teams also so. It's that's a concern but like you said before sort of step up known to man up type mentality and you know we'll we have we've been dress and you know 56 receivers for each game so. Every one of them has experience though from my standpoint consume as much of a concern. Let me throw us any options question because obviously he's playing through the rib injury doubt he was on the field a lot last week do you is there any concern. That you might after. Scale back it all on his snapped because of the banging and everything going on has bruised ribs now as far as I know him the medical staff of clear. Can you talk a little bit about I don't training camp you talked a lot about. His poise his maturity his work ethic now that the begun you've got a couple of games he had the big game against Miami. Seemingly was open on a regular basis. Sometimes it's tough for rookie receivers to have an impact of the National Football League can you talk about him terms of what you've seen on the field and his success early in his career. I think you know obviously it is what we saw him when he was in college. You know as far as what you see on the field. Keep saying the same thing I'm I'm probably more impressed with. There's work ethic and attitude as businesslike approach. Than anything and and being humble and thinking he's humble guy he just goes out there and you know the best job cam and he's very competitive. Even though we might not say a lot beat some unbelievable competitor. And you know he just needs to keep coming along too early in his career it's it's early obviously in the season. And you know let's see if he can do that for the next. In fourteen games and continue to get better. Two part question on what kind of attention has he seen. From other defense is in the first two games we'll start there and I got to follow. Well one thing about the NFL I think is that. You know when command you know people are gonna you know she which you have early on in and you have to earn it and then. And I think if he continues to have games like he did last week you know that I think people might be able to you know look at it maybe say we need to take him away. Hopefully we don't get into that situation because here we do have good players around him also and it's you know you can always take one player away. That's why we wanted to make sure that we're continuing spread the ball around. That I was curious about after a game like you know Sunday against Miami. Excuse me did it charges look at that and do you anticipate you Nathaniel Hackett anticipate San Diego is gonna spend a little more time on unlocking this week. But they may situationally. But I don't think it's going to be you know something where I think about for the whole game. Maybe not a surprise that Sammy Lockett at the big game first round pick to move up to get him had there been any players. Who have been a pleasant surprise to you and the coaches to the first a couple of games this season. By I think more from standpoint of the younger players you know Preston brown going out there and really playing well last week and were really a big increase from week one week to. You know shot and same situation no big increase from week one week to. And obviously you know Sammy you know played with a big big increase from week one we do so I think. You know you look from more of those players and you know your expectations are high for the players who have been here before. And you know Nigel Brennan come back for the first game they itself for the week and play in the way he he played. You know he did an extra. But last week we talked drug Cameron Wake and how there was one player that you would have obviously. Focus on in and work around this week that might be on offense Antonio Gates Probably all Famer had a huge game last week when you what kind of matchup problems he present for you. Story creates a lot of matchup problems and I think it's one of those situations where you know you go look to really contain. You know what he does and you know it's difficult you know it really is because they move him around so much so you know it'll be a big to be a battle we will not the battle play you know. You know bang you know try to beat them up a little bit you know put. You know the one thing you know the reason why like he says he's all famous if he continues to make plays and we just have to limit them. When you have your meetings during the week you talked to Jim Schwartz about like how does it conversation go about talking about a player like that obviously but if there's a guy of that. Type of talent like the UN to US Jim questions about what what he might wanna viewer offer advice that I does that dynamic work. Yeah I mean we'll sit down our our own week we'll talk about what restricts ours you know. Antonio Gates is obviously a great football player but they also you know very good football players on my team the Keenan Allen has this had an unbelievable year as a rookie last year and it's really. Performed well Eddie Royal good player in the slot real slippery. Malcolm Floyd and obviously been a great you know asset for him. And then you know running back situation the one that's funny because when you when people start talking about say they lost their starter now Donald Brown gonna start well. Lot of people realize that Donald Brown in the led the NFL last year yards after contact you know saw me in. You know at a five point something yards per carry type thing you know now you're gonna get a bigger dose of that you know and he can keep up that. You know obviously got to be a big challenge for us to stop the run so. You know we talk about you know a lot of situations and a lot of things like that you know really key for the game what we need to do to win and world focuses journal weekend. And all those things tomorrow. Did you guys and try to get time lines when at Syracuse did you would you have ever gone up against Donald Brown. I think so OK I just era and I'm not sure but I mean I've. And I've we've played San Diego while the New York. We played Havoc upon on the play offs and things like that men obviously norms we played a mountain London. So what about rivers then you know we asked about gates about Philip Rivers and talk a little bit about. Of the challenges a quarterback like rivers will present for your defense. Very Smart. Could make the throws has really good feel receivers the ball's coming out before the break. You know of the receiver. You know I think he's a big guy in the pocket. Even though he may not you know have the speed you know to the brink of big Enron he's he's he's. A lot like you know Tom Brady as far as. Pockets abbey where he can move left move right you know avoid the rush still keep his eyes downfield and get the ball down field and you see him doing that quite a bit. It obviously is you know we've been. Product of the coaches that was the coach he's he's one of whole entire life so he's a competitor in the again you know we have to do a good job of matching up in the passing game. In that passing him wanna ask you about your secondary dug around with AT&T hotline from one bills drive. And you talk a little bit about the rotation at quarterback you have Gilmore you have Mckelvin coming back in Corey Graham and he's been tremendous in the first couple games. Would you like Q ideally would you prefer. A rotation of those three guys whether it's a third third third I don't know what the percentage would be or do you like leaning on a couple of starting quarterbacks a couple of top quarterbacks. And then bring in another guy a small percentage of the time. Not I mean what I think wanted to on the personnel that you have what you wanna do. And where we're a great position and I get this question quite a bit I mean. We have three starting corners. And that's. Mean that's you don't see that a lot around the league so. You know you feel you have three starting corners and obviously it's like he 33 point 333 point 333 point three especially now. You know we'll get you know we look at the position from standpoint production so. You know we keep high production from that position which we are you know it's a great thing for us especially in a long season. Defensively you guys have done through the first against a very good job of of really limiting the big place the one big play the Jeffrey is really. It Miami had nothing longer than eighteen yards last week how come run and pass Doug how come so far there has been that kind of success limiting the big play against your team. While it's it's it's two things that are going wrong one obviously of the guys up front you know being able to. He'll get pressure on the quarterback in a lot of times to complete those those big plays. very seven step drops you know quarterback kitchen and you know haven't four seconds to be able throw the ball went down the field. The gets difficult to do you know with our front four we've been able to get pressure on the quarterback you know with our front four. You know it's saying that now we can we can sit back and keep everything up which we've done a good job. Of food you know these past two games and limit people from you know go ahead and make him a big play if it. I think wanna ask you about is your special teams across the board strong I mean coverage units return game everything solid your your done a great job touch backs. On kick us if we could just talk a little bit about. The impact special teams has had. Field position and the overall too and I'll start by the. Then it's it's been a big impact there and again you know from the standpoint of of what you mentioned just now field position I mean that's that's the biggest thing because if the field position obviously equates to points and we don't we don't really well we going to be better we've we've brought some players and here. The players have done a good job you know the starters that are on certain teams. Feel really. Bought in for lack of a better term what we're trying to get accomplished. You know we brought in another specialist for the for the kickoff that's been going well I think we have ten backs in fourteen attempts and the ones that are coming back. Obviously are inside the warning which is which is great for us They don't want thing that we probably you probably couldn't obviously upon the situation we switched that out before the season. Here he's been unbelievable for its you know people inside its warning and I think that that's been probably. The biggest surprise. That from one bills drive. as always thanks very much for the visit good luck on Sunday against the charges we'll next football Friday great thank you guys appreciate it. But Rome brought you by northwest savings bank it's time to make the switch to northwest by your your GMC dealers show room today for exceptional offers. My New York's only outlet liquor watch your outlet. And by Geico fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more your car insurance. Is it Geico dot com or call 180947. Auto just one other set of numbers to follow up is you're just talking about field position. With dug around the bills average drive start for their offense has been the around thirty yard line the opponents' average drive start their own twenties plus ten there. Of the opponents to 44 drives this season they've been at their twenty or incited. On eighteen of those 24 drives seven times they've been inside their own fifteen yard line to start a possession to our football Friday by the numbers brought you by. Logan Valenti book binder and one from specializing in accounting. Tax and consulting services to privately owned businesses. It is football Friday 8030550. your prediction here he plays for the game on Sunday if the bills go to 30.

I know more about the one and one chargers Josh play by play voice of the San Diego Chargers and join us next. On WG. I get your old charter scout report in a moment here and Matthew and everybody listening. And obviously in the story if you did have this yesterday when I was out I apologize. Why the Pro Football Hall of Fame has requested a game Jersey from traditional last week is now on display in the game Jersey concede last week on display. I want one. When week in just a moment you think about you got a few minutes but it's on display. We are gonna find out more about the chargers Josh chargers play by play man former roster red wings also New York Mets broadcaster. Josh Howard your good morning hi Dylan. More Ellis editor at eight good thanks for coming on first of all okay one and one opposite of big. Win over Seattle Josh give kind of a capsule if you go to the first few games what's what's been good what hasn't been so good for San Diego for two games. Well on their chicken little are not being through it all at that game and Eric not a Kind of messed up you know that well the frustrating part that. They bounced back very nicely and obviously had a really good game against the defending champions on the that part really well. And you know they're they're not really that help your. They have a concern and they're really out on the offense but I. Buffaloes wrong team beat England that an issue by. It only got a great quarterback getting you think we are running backs out I. YouTube posted belt Albert he's out for a few weeks. So you know if not a full complement of that Carter players coming in but it should be a very competitive but they lately traveled well to an outlet routine flight. Oakland to go to east of the Mississippi can't win you know they they've actually been pretty well gone that. The midwest and eat out that that court shouldn't be an issue I think health will. Joshua though the Matthew's injury how big of an issue would that be in your estimation. Donald Brown like you know. It kind of did everything kind of appear level. I power in Israel and Matt you're expecting a decree would Adam brown should be all right. Penalty at the or both global. President Oliver to eat yet hurricane yet repeatedly. Though the weapons in the receiving game Josh discharges. Play by play and the AT&T hotline. Obviously gates I know I guess Keenan Allen was limited in practice yesterday but he and Eddie Royal and and not Floyd talk a little about the weapons rivers hasn't how this group's. up against previous games and soon. Yes it's a great group they got to be feeling very comfortable and incompetent figure thirty point ugly here You know Keenan Allen even if he slowed albeit I I groin. Like I. May have played in on An underrated. Big time player had a count your seat and as a rookie and you know EP based reader and and electricity. The San Diego and and yet you mentioned seat belt there all the time he helped the early productive their. You know Ian until a and I chemistry together they always have a well wait for breaking down last week so. They'll go that we get the ball So the offense is good what about the defense how is it looked in the first couple games. Better I mean much better than last year quarter was really an issue that you agree eight in her battle. Early cup lite but I it you know or not that accurate had been for several years is eager. Really root got Brandon Flowers and immediate Egypt and TEU earlier art. And righted the big. They're out. You know in Egypt manual bookkeeper 300 yard That we can find it. I think it that much better they're a little again to help it's an issue right now carry out to. pressure to really get the to from Burbank happy. other guys being out so you know not make decent but it. A little lower. Amnesty and this that make spent. Josh was a sunny AT&T hotline broadcaster in the San Diego Chargers play by play man. Josh thanks for coming all of us this morning appreciate your time and a enjoy the rest of the football and what's left of the baseball season for you. I appreciate guys have they'll be out there. Thank you Josh very much charges broadcaster and former voice of the Rochester red wings wrapping up the season on the Mets broadcasts as well. And then go flying up the buffalo to called game on Sunday back to San Diego Jocelyn with AT&T You figure out the Pro Football Hall of Fame called and asked for game worn Jersey you'll never get it is really stupid actually.

It was the first tell you that's CJ Spiller did something for the first time in the NFL. In a game since It's not always Simon you know. More for the whole week. They're right away in the right situations. And he's image good reason. When it was when all of us again same reason we. Gave them. Got up close and we'll I was but didn't. They'll that the Miami well the second withdrawal. Wait wait fires to put it apartheid Sammy. Common a lot of minutes on my that old game and festival. Do you get any help from the film. Fight the good thing that would fight through. Yeah I don't know how long nagging injuries. This summit to.

For the bills with the injury update from from dug around sabres opened camp today there are three different sessions all open the public so you can have done the first tigris and are drawn to Buffalo Sabres in training camp and that about Auburn won last night fifth ranked team in the country ever won at Kansas State Kasay missed three field goals in that game.

I think you know obviously it is what we saw him when he was in college. You know as far as what you see on the field. Keep saying the same thing I'm I'm probably more impressed with. There's work ethic and attitude as businesslike approach. Than anything and and being humble and thinking he's humble guy he just goes out there and you know the best job cam and he's very competitive. Even though we might not say a lot beat some unbelievable competitor. And you know he just needs to keep coming along too early in his career it's it's early obviously in the season. And you know let's see if he can do that for the next. In fourteen games and continue to get better. Two part question on what kind of attention has he seen. From other defense is in the first two games we'll start there and I got to follow. Well one thing about the NFL I think is that. You know when command you know people are gonna you know she which you have early on in and you have to earn it and then. And I think if he continues to have games like he did last week you know that I think people might be able to you know look at it maybe say we need to take him away. Hopefully we don't get into that situation because here we do have good players around him also and it's you know you can always take one player away. That's why we wanted to make sure that we're continuing spread the ball around. That I was curious about after a game like you know Sunday against Miami. Excuse me did it charges look at that and do you anticipate you Nathaniel Hackett anticipate San Diego is gonna spend a little more time on unlocking this week. But they may situationally. But I don't think it's going to be you know something where I think about for the whole game. Maybe not a surprise that Sammy Lockett at the big game first round pick to move up to get him had there been any players. Who have been a pleasant surprise to you and the coaches to the first a couple of games this season. By I think more from standpoint of the younger players you know Preston brown going out there and really playing well last week and were really a big increase from week one week to. You know shot and same situation no big increase from week one week to. And obviously you know Sammy you know played with a big big increase from week one we do so I think. You know you look from more of those players and you know your expectations are high for the players who have been here before. And you know Nigel Brennan come back for the first game they itself for the week and play in the way he he played. You know he did an extra. But last week we talked drug Cameron Wake and how there was one player that you would have obviously. Focus on in and work around this week that might be on offense Antonio Gates Probably all Famer had a huge game last week when you what kind of matchup problems he present for you. Story creates a lot of matchup problems and I think it's one of those situations where you know you go look to really contain. You know what he does and you know it's difficult you know it really is because they move him around so much so you know it'll be a big to be a battle we will not the battle play you know. You know bang you know try to beat them up a little bit you know put. You know the one thing you know the reason why like he says he's all famous if he continues to make plays and we just have to limit them. When you have your meetings during the week you talked to Jim Schwartz about like how does it conversation go about talking about a player like that obviously but if there's a guy of that. Type of talent like the UN to US Jim questions about what what he might wanna viewer offer advice that I does that dynamic work. Yeah I mean we'll sit down our our own week we'll talk about what restricts ours you know. Antonio Gates is obviously a great football player but they also you know very good football players on my team the Keenan Allen has this had an unbelievable year as a rookie last year and it's really. Performed well Eddie Royal good player in the slot real slippery. Malcolm Floyd and obviously been a great you know asset for him. And then you know running back situation the one that's funny because when you when people start talking about say they lost their starter now Donald Brown gonna start well. Lot of people realize that Donald Brown in the led the NFL last year yards after contact you know saw me in. You know at a five point something yards per carry type thing you know now you're gonna get a bigger dose of that you know and he can keep up that. You know obviously got to be a big challenge for us to stop the run so. You know we talk about you know a lot of situations and a lot of things like that you know really key for the game what we need to do to win and world focuses journal weekend. And all those things tomorrow. Did you guys and try to get time lines when at Syracuse did you would you have ever gone up against Donald Brown. I think so OK I just era and I'm not sure but I mean I've. And I've we've played San Diego while the New York. We played Havoc upon on the play offs and things like that men obviously norms we played a mountain London. So what about rivers then you know we asked about gates about Philip Rivers and talk a little bit about. Of the challenges a quarterback like rivers will present for your defense. Very Smart. Could make the throws has really good feel receivers the ball's coming out before the break. You know of the receiver. You know I think he's a big guy in the pocket. Even though he may not you know have the speed you know to the brink of big Enron he's he's he's. A lot like you know Tom Brady as far as. Pockets abbey where he can move left move right you know avoid the rush still keep his eyes downfield and get the ball down field and you see him doing that quite a bit. It obviously is you know we've been. Product of the coaches that was the coach he's he's one of whole entire life so he's a competitor in the again you know we have to do a good job of matching up in the passing game. In that passing him wanna ask you about your secondary dug around with AT&T hotline from one bills drive. And you talk a little bit about the rotation at quarterback you have Gilmore you have Mckelvin coming back in Corey Graham and he's been tremendous in the first couple games. Would you like Q ideally would you prefer. A rotation of those three guys whether it's a third third third I don't know what the percentage would be or do you like leaning on a couple of starting quarterbacks a couple of top quarterbacks. And then bring in another guy a small percentage of the time. Not I mean what I think wanted to on the personnel that you have what you wanna do. And where we're a great position and I get this question quite a bit I mean. We have three starting corners. And that's. Mean that's you don't see that a lot around the league so. You know you feel you have three starting corners and obviously it's like he 33 point 333 point 333 point three especially now. You know we'll get you know we look at the position from standpoint production so. You know we keep high production from that position which we are you know it's a great thing for us especially in a long season. Defensively you guys have done through the first against a very good job of of really limiting the big place the one big play the Jeffrey is really. It Miami had nothing longer than eighteen yards last week how come run and pass Doug how come so far there has been that kind of success limiting the big play against your team. While it's it's it's two things that are going wrong one obviously of the guys up front you know being able to. He'll get pressure on the quarterback in a lot of times to complete those those big plays. very seven step drops you know quarterback kitchen and you know haven't four seconds to be able throw the ball went down the field. The gets difficult to do you know with our front four we've been able to get pressure on the quarterback you know with our front four. You know it's saying that now we can we can sit back and keep everything up which we've done a good job. Of food you know these past two games and limit people from you know go ahead and make him a big play if it. I think wanna ask you about is your special teams across the board strong I mean coverage units return game everything solid your your done a great job touch backs. On kick us if we could just talk a little bit about. The impact special teams has had. Field position and the overall too and I'll start by the. Then it's it's been a big impact there and again you know from the standpoint of of what you mentioned just now field position I mean that's that's the biggest thing because if the field position obviously equates to points and we don't we don't really well we going to be better we've we've brought some players and here. The players have done a good job you know the starters that are on certain teams. Feel really. Bought in for lack of a better term what we're trying to get accomplished. You know we brought in another specialist for the for the kickoff that's been going well I think we have ten backs in fourteen attempts and the ones that are coming back. Obviously are inside the warning which is which is great for us They don't want thing that we probably you probably couldn't obviously upon the situation we switched that out before the season. Here he's been unbelievable for its you know people inside its warning and I think that that's been probably. The biggest surprise. That from one bills drive. as always thanks very much for the visit good luck on Sunday against the charges we'll next football Friday great thank you guys appreciate it.

I know more about the one and one chargers Josh play by play voice of the San Diego Chargers and join us next. On WG. I get your old charter scout report in a moment here and Matthew and everybody listening. And obviously in the story if you did have this yesterday when I was out I apologize. Why the Pro Football Hall of Fame has requested a game Jersey from traditional last week is now on display in the game Jersey concede last week on display. I want one. When week in just a moment you think about you got a few minutes but it's on display. We are gonna find out more about the chargers Josh chargers play by play man former roster red wings also New York Mets broadcaster. Josh Howard your good morning hi Dylan. More Ellis editor at eight good thanks for coming on first of all okay one and one opposite of big. Win over Seattle Josh give kind of a capsule if you go to the first few games what's what's been good what hasn't been so good for San Diego for two games. Well on their chicken little are not being through it all at that game and Eric not a Kind of messed up you know that well the frustrating part that. They bounced back very nicely and obviously had a really good game against the defending champions on the that part really well. And you know they're they're not really that help your. They have a concern and they're really out on the offense but I. Buffaloes wrong team beat England that an issue by. It only got a great quarterback getting you think we are running backs out I. YouTube posted belt Albert he's out for a few weeks. So you know if not a full complement of that Carter players coming in but it should be a very competitive but they lately traveled well to an outlet routine flight. Oakland to go to east of the Mississippi can't win you know they they've actually been pretty well gone that. The midwest and eat out that that court shouldn't be an issue I think health will. Joshua though the Matthew's injury how big of an issue would that be in your estimation. Donald Brown like you know. It kind of did everything kind of appear level. I power in Israel and Matt you're expecting a decree would Adam brown should be all right. Penalty at the or both global. President Oliver to eat yet hurricane yet repeatedly. Though the weapons in the receiving game Josh discharges. Play by play and the AT&T hotline. Obviously gates I know I guess Keenan Allen was limited in practice yesterday but he and Eddie Royal and and not Floyd talk a little about the weapons rivers hasn't how this group's. up against previous games and soon. Yes it's a great group they got to be feeling very comfortable and incompetent figure thirty point ugly here You know Keenan Allen even if he slowed albeit I I groin. Like I. May have played in on An underrated. Big time player had a count your seat and as a rookie and you know EP based reader and and electricity. The San Diego and and yet you mentioned seat belt there all the time he helped the early productive their. You know Ian until a and I chemistry together they always have a well wait for breaking down last week so. They'll go that we get the ball So the offense is good what about the defense how is it looked in the first couple games. Better I mean much better than last year quarter was really an issue that you agree eight in her battle. Early cup lite but I it you know or not that accurate had been for several years is eager. Really root got Brandon Flowers and immediate Egypt and TEU earlier art. And righted the big. They're out. You know in Egypt manual bookkeeper 300 yard That we can find it. I think it that much better they're a little again to help it's an issue right now carry out to. pressure to really get the to from Burbank happy. other guys being out so you know not make decent but it. A little lower. Amnesty and this that make spent. Josh was a sunny AT&T hotline broadcaster in the San Diego Chargers play by play man. Josh thanks for coming all of us this morning appreciate your time and a enjoy the rest of the football and what's left of the baseball season for you. I appreciate guys have they'll be out there. Thank you Josh very much charges broadcaster and former voice of the Rochester red wings wrapping up the season on the Mets broadcasts as well. And then go flying up the buffalo to called game on Sunday back to San Diego Jocelyn with AT&T You figure out the Pro Football Hall of Fame called and asked for game worn Jersey you'll never get it is really stupid actually. I think it's stupid. Because. It was the first. You're on the right this the first something in and so many years but good luck trying to put it all together. It was the first tell you that's CJ Spiller did something for the first time in the NFL. In a game since 1973. Was last time this happens you'll never get this it's a fabricated that. He is the first. Running back. Returned kick. 100 plus yards in the second half. While running east. And wearing white I actually like that better than the real reason. CJ Spiller is Jersey will now be displayed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the next calendar year. Because. He became the first NFL player on. The first of the year to return for a touchdown note was the first return protest. On the air though he that's not life and that of your real one and be fine. He reported the whole thing for me and it's gonna get sent you there analytic all there was that it was the DV all based secret. At the the highest winds above particularly certain price abilities which is OSPs. Of as is the EPA is I would is okay CJ Spiller became the first NFL player to produce say 100 yard kick return touchdowns. And 845 yard rush in the same game since 19730. That's cool. It's fabricate Longer there have been tons of guys return a and we it all the way. He also from 47 you don't know want to return to catch and run for more than 45 yards what about it it was. Cemented it for 47 that particular rush return to kick for a. This is stupid Him. Am. Utterly Houston Oilers running back Bob Gresham had a 103 yard kick return for a touchdown and a 52 yard run so he was Against Cincinnati in 19730 begrudge. This is a made up stuff. Like what you. What dad you've got to go look. You see that Jersey from G just like dad. We turn to kick it had a 47 yard in the same great day. Moralists the tweet a picture of. That's just silly. For what it's worth these last bills player to have a piece of memorabilia displayed in the hall of fame once. Running back Fred Jackson. Following the 2009 season at that time. He became the first player and had a history to rush for a thousand yards and produce thousand kick return yards in the same season now it's a legitimate stack. You went too fast go one on what sort of for a paying Buffalo Bill here in the hall fame. the needed a boss. That's I'm sorry I should applause that's America. That's a material. Saudi Arabia three days so there you get the kids. Pack the car drive to can't and go look at TJ Steelers game worn Jersey. From the Miami Dolphins game. Which is now on display at the pro football and I gave up 30 I'd get to join us 888. 550 to 550. Coming up next. I drove a bodily wanna hear from you your bills chargers prediction the wind would they go to three Are a do we come in Monday morning at start talking about playoffs. And in different scenarios. In which other AFC teams lost and all other stuff. You think will be the key players in the game for the bills for them to win the football game on Sunday under wide open we'd love to have you join us in a real coming up. Nine staff super great American football Friday frenzy but Richard retreat when we get back. the dilemma out of the way we have in the united thirty. I yes Paul's gonna check in from sabres practiced him. Tonight a just need to know when we can have this cultural discussion about the front page the USA today in the and a pink backpack. I need to know. When we can talk about this paint back where the problem of the pink backpack well. We've got a minute here right. I just need to know where to stop where it's gonna stop. This is a story USA today about. Culture now. You know when you say you throw like a girl you're devaluing the female gender and it's you know culture of oppression violence and you know as well as a rookie hazing of rookie hazing Munich pirates pitcher pink backpack. Is that indicative of a culture of gender violence mean where do out there not a fan of where are we allowed to stop and being totally honest. Where are we allowed to stop when they have the players dress up like girls for rookie hazing day I think that's pretty pink backpack about that. Big backpack and he told filled with candy like he's got to walk and a good candidate people come in Canada it's like that. I mean if they make it not I think it's funny here when they have at me like Dora the Explorer something like since silly child backpack. back packet on its offensive. I don't know is that offensive to babies. I don't know it is what you do like where is network where can it stop. Not a lot have a guy carry pink backpack they use of that you have to tries to work Howard but you don't have the legs like people make putts like that allows people. Clearly indicating a culture of them of gender violence. Or is it just like Howard looks ominous. But it wouldn't be it wouldn't be meant as a sign of disrespect or to value women it would not everything meant to demean the females. Right and I think the back that being female. And on this is were altogether site wanna say like I get that there's something here I just don't know what where it goes. People that defend the Washington football that they don't mean to do it yeah. People to defend the Lancaster team football Nemo though it doesn't mean that it means honor and respect and again actually means. Racial slower so like. I don't know its front page USA today it's pirates' player the pink backpack there is what the Iowa football team the visiting locker But is it a slur is that the equivalent or French slur is wearing a pink backpack as a prank the equivalent of a racial slower. Two and higher of course not entire nation needing a locker room paint. is it devaluing to women or is it just like. We don't like this collar this cholera presents what seems like it's headed somewhere now like. In the in the direction of how high your younger. Co. while otherwise it wouldn't be embarrassing. What are you to do. Why would I do anything anymore but it be more. Demeaning. Sexist. To have to make sure I have cheerleaders and skimpy outfits at my football game ball definitely so the pink backpack. Where's where's the big outrage of the on cheerleaders wider wider we slowed cheerleaders and of games. dressed up in these you know skimpy outfits while complaining about that yet to be a big fan of either one I just think that there. There's something to I wouldn't be offended Witten. By the pink backpack either if I was the pitcher I guess I wouldn't and now backpack. I don't see right it's not actually it's not actually thing that is demeaning to you to Wear pink backpack but I think jail doing it. Two of the guys to be like how I like your girl I'm right in that right I mean isn't it sort of along the same lines of you throw like a. I just wanted to know if I go golfing with someone and they legal short and I say. Does your husband play like you know you hit like a girl like. In the keynote tweet deck I get suspended I just trash talk my body on a level that people have done for thousands of years is that gone too. I just I'm acknowledged by the way. Happens that the golf tournament of course it does horse people say that is it about my drives all the time they made a single ladies tees like ice immediately I guess are we soon going to world with the only people that are allowed to say that are comedians on a stage and no one else is a lot. I don't know I mean it is it necessary to say is it necessary always talking about football but one of our today necessary like noble we duet But I mean maybe if you're talking about adding up all the all the things together. You know and mean the like. I personally probably wouldn't say that. TU I actually because my wife is female athlete that can kick your ass like a girl like yeah I wouldn't write I wouldn't say that to you because I just never. Think of it in a way I said that in the making fun of some kid you Johnson's friends say a throw I mean that's years ago and I've said it I guess I did what you did I mean you what you're saying like if you just mess around your what harm does have. But I understand where they're going with that for the articles like. Mean really it it shouldn't it shouldn't be the way that we think are taught that. You're you're talking and making fun of someone for. Being girl he was. Wearing pink whatever else I mean it's just it's seems unnecessary. It's what's what's less necessary that or connecting it to violence against women. Yeah well one doesn't let the other right won a pink backpack on the back of a pitcher for a prank doesn't lead to violence and and domestic abuse it is not. Oh is not sending out a message that you show respect when these leaps sometimes these connections these I'd have to look at it if I'm at the game. and a guy walks out of the dugout with a back backpack you're telling me that I have to look at that and my reaction would be. Well that's not fair when I mean that's like that's an insult to women it's the meaning. This is promoting disrespecting women because she's wearing it at some point. I don't look at that. Every single dismemberment every single not a personal lots of sitcom comedies. What do they involved what are the commercials involved dopey man that don't know how to take care of babies right all your idiot husband all amendment he's such a Like two other studies linking that that's like him valuing men at that makes violence again. At some point I just. I don't know I don't want to go too crazy like we don't need to connect the pirates made a rookie pitcher Wear pink backpack to seek. This is indicative of a culture that opens respect that is violent towards women like I c'mon. I don't know if it's not as does everyday violence but I think it's like indicative towards not not respecting women let's get some women to call mean it just three guys talking call on this idea we call that. When bipolar respect everyone's opinion on this just this anyone really see that pink backpack and like. There it is. real budget to join us 888552. Factor do you get your calls and got thoughts on that and we have the and only coming up as well. On WG. quickly on the moment of the week it's brought you by Miller Lite and it's not just a good time it's Miller time. I made a very very quick selection obviously the game on Sunday was a memorable one. And I would say the moment of the week. Was Jim Kelly issuing the you know at the podium hate. Okay. And division and there was switching of fish Howard they switch the fish a lot. Good question lot of switching of fish are a moment that we brought you by middle lives not just a good time it's Miller time let me get in. Squeezing whatever we can't hear calls on this backpack discussion Robin in Dunkirk you're on W jogger right ahead. Morning. I don't hate it it. Probably garbage just being putted OK that he throw like girls are wearing bad. It is being feminine at the email Batter or I'll let our derogatory or whatever at cart have he daughter would probably figure out exactly. I took up hockey either dirty Jew I don't think it's bad. It like a girl gave like a girl a girl like a girl when you start saying they like that that we can I went Stewart because. It may not flat. And everywhere at or at least it makes them constantly okay. The treatment last. Are going to coach when it starts to be to her around a little bit on treat her like. It's if my a backpack a guy pink backpack he's not gonna become violent women and you know line I'll teach him to respect women the back back to me is not something that all look at guys wearing a pink backpack and at the collegiate hit a woman Sunday at all. You can't tell you is by. I'm not saying all it will be an eerie I'm opera. Brother was raised properly under retreat back and then he'll. directory but there are men out there. Who Our lack of a better description an old school and I think that I'll throw like a girl where he backtracked you know you're like a girl in any way I write your lack. OK okay and I expect constantly. Seeing they greet her in whatever. But content digital age and may. Throwing like that girl something derogatory. You see ascent as lacked the way we all talked about. Don't about Adobe Adobe. I didn't whatever. I never had a right turn right man never had it right or their country never had whole hell of a lot of I need to extract because all of a more eagle typical. Jack out. you don't know what it's like to grow up email it especially in late. Like you know even out it didn't all. You know I drop. Apple and it shouldn't be that that shouldn't be seeing it shouldn't be sending you on golf course they only hit like a girl whatever. All right thanks I I I don't savings again I'm just. I don't Robin I don't I don't I don't at some point in Johnson's eighteen years maybe when he was six I may have set them at some point. They throw like a girl. And you know a lot. I also taught him how to respect women and how to respect people how to be a good person. Up pink backpack on a baseball player does not send a message to a guy in the stands with his young child. Of it's located this women. No it isn't it's that pink backpack itself. on a baseball team and it doesn't send the message of it's to demean disrespect or be physically abusive to women. That's on and by the again that's not as a parent. That's on me I'm not gonna look at the team and go. I how could you guys I'll tell my it's a joke because guys. Typically pink is for is is not a color that guys would Wear that Wear pink it's a prank it's a rookie joke it's hazing. Put I need to explain beyond that I will all by the way you know you don't disrespect women and so forth and so I just I don't get how you play that. Together with the end result of. 1973. Was last time this happens you'll never get this it's a fabricated that. He is the first. Running back. Returned kick. 100 plus yards in the second half. While running east. And wearing white I actually like that better than the real reason. CJ Spiller is Jersey will now be displayed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the next calendar year. Because.

Clearly indicating a culture of them of gender violence. Or is it just like Howard looks ominous. But it wouldn't be it wouldn't be meant as a sign of disrespect or to value women it would not everything meant to demean the females. Right and I think the back that being female. And on this is were altogether site wanna say like I get that there's something here I just don't know what where it goes. People that defend the Washington football that they don't mean to do it yeah. People to defend the Lancaster team football Nemo though it doesn't mean that it means honor and respect and again actually means. Racial slower so like. I don't know its front page USA today it's pirates' player the pink backpack there is what the Iowa football team the visiting locker But is it a slur is that the equivalent or French slur is wearing a pink backpack as a prank the equivalent of a racial slower. Two and higher of course not entire nation needing a locker room paint. is it devaluing to women or is it just like. We don't like this collar this cholera presents what seems like it's headed somewhere now like. In the in the direction of how high your younger. Co. while otherwise it wouldn't be embarrassing. What are you to do. Why would I do anything anymore but it be more. Demeaning. Sexist. To have to make sure I have cheerleaders and skimpy outfits at my football game ball definitely so the pink backpack. Where's where's the big outrage of the on cheerleaders wider wider we slowed cheerleaders and of games. dressed up in these you know skimpy outfits while complaining about that yet to be a big fan of either one I just think that there. There's something to I wouldn't be offended Witten. By the pink backpack either if I was the pitcher I guess I wouldn't and now backpack. I don't see right it's not actually it's not actually thing that is demeaning to you to Wear pink backpack but I think jail doing it. Two of the guys to be like how I like your girl I'm right in that right I mean isn't it sort of along the same lines of you throw like a. I just wanted to know if I go golfing with someone and they legal short and I say. Does your husband play like you know you hit like a girl like. In the keynote tweet deck I get suspended I just trash talk my body on a level that people have done for thousands of years is that gone too. I just I'm acknowledged by the way. Happens that the golf tournament of course it does horse people say that is it about my drives all the time they made a single ladies tees like ice immediately I guess are we soon going to world with the only people that are allowed to say that are comedians on a stage and no one else is a lot. I don't know I mean it is it necessary to say is it necessary always talking about football but one of our today necessary like noble we duet But I mean maybe if you're talking about adding up all the all the things together. You know and mean the like. I personally probably wouldn't say that. TU I actually because my wife is female athlete that can kick your ass like a girl like yeah I wouldn't write I wouldn't say that to you because I just never. Think of it in a way I said that in the making fun of some kid you Johnson's friends say a throw I mean that's years ago and I've said it I guess I did what you did I mean you what you're saying like if you just mess around your what harm does have. But I understand where they're going with that for the articles like. Mean really it it shouldn't it shouldn't be the way that we think are taught that. You're you're talking and making fun of someone for. Being girl he was. Wearing pink whatever else I mean it's just it's seems unnecessary. It's what's what's less necessary that or connecting it to violence against women. Yeah well one doesn't let the other right won a pink backpack on the back of a pitcher for a prank doesn't lead to violence and and domestic abuse it is not. Oh is not sending out a message that you show respect when these leaps sometimes these connections these I'd have to look at it if I'm at the game. and a guy walks out of the dugout with a back backpack you're telling me that I have to look at that and my reaction would be. Well that's not fair when I mean that's like that's an insult to women it's the meaning. This is promoting disrespecting women because she's wearing it at some point. I don't look at that. Every single dismemberment every single not a personal lots of sitcom comedies. What do they involved what are the commercials involved dopey man that don't know how to take care of babies right all your idiot husband all amendment he's such a Like two other studies linking that that's like him valuing men at that makes violence again. At some point I just. I don't know I don't want to go too crazy like we don't need to connect the pirates made a rookie pitcher Wear pink backpack to seek. This is indicative of a culture that opens respect that is violent towards women like I c'mon. I don't know if it's not as does everyday violence but I think it's like indicative towards not not respecting women let's get some women to call mean it just three guys talking call on this idea we call that. When bipolar respect everyone's opinion on this just this anyone really see that pink backpack and like. There it is. real budget to join us 888552. Factor do you get your calls and got thoughts on that and we have the and only coming up as well. On WG. quickly on the moment of the week it's brought you by Miller Lite and it's not just a good time it's Miller time. I made a very very quick selection obviously the game on Sunday was a memorable one. And I would say the moment of the week. Was Jim Kelly issuing the you know at the podium hate. Okay. And division and there was switching of fish Howard they switch the fish a lot. Good question lot of switching of fish are a moment that we brought you by middle lives not just a good time it's Miller time let me get in. Squeezing whatever we can't hear calls on this backpack discussion Robin in Dunkirk you're on W jogger right ahead. Morning. I don't hate it it. Probably garbage just being putted OK that he throw like girls are wearing bad. It is being feminine at the email Batter or I'll let our derogatory or whatever at cart have he daughter would probably figure out exactly. I took up hockey either dirty Jew I don't think it's bad. It like a girl gave like a girl a girl like a girl when you start saying they like that that we can I went Stewart because. It may not flat. And everywhere at or at least it makes them constantly okay. The treatment last. Are going to coach when it starts to be to her around a little bit on treat her like. It's if my a backpack a guy pink backpack he's not gonna become violent women and you know line I'll teach him to respect women the back back to me is not something that all look at guys wearing a pink backpack and at the collegiate hit a woman Sunday at all. You can't tell you is by. I'm not saying all it will be an eerie I'm opera. Brother was raised properly under retreat back and then he'll. directory but there are men out there. Who Our lack of a better description an old school and I think that I'll throw like a girl where he backtracked you know you're like a girl in any way I write your lack. OK okay and I expect constantly. Seeing they greet her in whatever. But content digital age and may. Throwing like that girl something derogatory. You see ascent as lacked the way we all talked about. Don't about Adobe Adobe. I didn't whatever. I never had a right turn right man never had it right or their country never had whole hell of a lot of I need to extract because all of a more eagle typical. Jack out. you don't know what it's like to grow up email it especially in late. Like you know even out it didn't all. You know I drop. Apple and it shouldn't be that that shouldn't be seeing it shouldn't be sending you on golf course they only hit like a girl whatever. All right thanks I I I don't savings again I'm just. I don't Robin I don't I don't I don't at some point in Johnson's eighteen years maybe when he was six I may have set them at some point. They throw like a girl. And you know a lot. I also taught him how to respect women and how to respect people how to be a good person. Up pink backpack on a baseball player does not send a message to a guy in the stands with his young child. Of it's located this women. No it isn't it's that pink backpack itself. on a baseball team and it doesn't send the message of it's to demean disrespect or be physically abusive to women. That's on and by the again that's not as a parent. That's on me I'm not gonna look at the team and go. I how could you guys I'll tell my it's a joke because guys. Typically pink is for is is not a color that guys would Wear that Wear pink it's a prank it's a rookie joke it's hazing. Put I need to explain beyond that I will all by the way you know you don't disrespect women and so forth and so I just I don't get how you play that. Together with the end result of.

    asked to do once and it played against the -- Phillip Phil. Philip Rivers how many points they have to appeal called filth that exhibit home -- river now -- -- sounds like an old comedian
    receivers got their catches bought. If they're able do it again for Philip Rivers then we say I look at the schedule and you look at the good quarterbacks they have to face. If three games it was -- you'll wins over Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers you know that's a pretty good resonate that's the -- of a defense that. To me. Looks like it should push for a playoff spot then the conversation about the game again -- against Matthew Stafford is -- little different you know week one Matthew Stafford and the lines are just. On stopped board and the giants the next week they get help the seven points by Carolina. So I thought Detroit was really good. Maybe they're not that good maybe their okay and dangerous and still a game the bills could easily lose but if they managed to shut down Philip Rivers that game against. Matthew Stafford becomes different in the game against Aaron Rodgers even becomes -- -- the Packers are not unbeatable
    it's no it would not have been as significant even though it's Philip Rivers but then they beat Seattle. And they -- you you knock off a team that has beat the defending Super Bowl champions

Germany and the -- guys. -- well be careful out there. Out here are thought that it's fine. That's that's that's okay we might still listen. You know to know I know it's only two games -- Google was on with Kevin yesterday. Said -- I cautioned the fans don't get too carried away but to -- you know what do you like so far in terms of how the team -- -- through the first two games that. Like that we once again and then. Not with no no injuries prominent of those games that that your kids are at a around the leak out. Well. It's it's going to be a weird seeing it and then you gotta get these points. He and the idiot could think truly is an orwellian that you better regulation. So we're not having any three point games and again we've been involved that. You know what I had gone back to the end of last season when -- -- -- we're talking about you know ways to improve the -- he said you know. You guys wanted to make sure you made the team tougher to play against can you assess that through the first couple games because it appears to this point mission accomplished in that area anyway. I don't think so is it that it -- early in the days and let you know I think. He's got style of play is certainly as advertised then. Well played that she brought an awful enough on our guys interceptor. Always throw a lot of kids are not necessarily -- -- or -- split and they get out of autumn. And that's fairly up while lighter note I'm Betty age. -- body around and it goes back on us so all I I think so far so good we need when you start. But it just bangs on in non stop every ship. LP like may pick up behind you -- -- bought it yet at a audience. Narrower focus away try to -- It might be a little difficult to got to admit they don't get into any accidents by your ominous. Well I don't it's sudden you know I know ball below my experience in driving is that stops I'm really mean you'll probably always. On the look out anyway and I also lit at a community where the word Jeep owners of our. They come on you you lived in Pittsburgh that place is built on hills that you can drive through Pittsburgh I don't know director anywhere. -- mainly it's what somebody says have you been T bone. I play at the first summer hurt that -- that will be talking about. Well please be careful savored president debacle -- to take your calls too he's he's that. Talented that he can. Deal with the snow and take phone calls -- real five pick duplicate your calls in a moment for -- you guys had big news on the ratings it's not just. Not just here and around the league. We are seeing that NHL television ratings really hide your guys eat what -- the flyers game was the highest rated regular season sabres game since the winter classic is that right. Yeah outside if you but the -- of winter classic at the highest rated game we've ever had and probably one of the Irish it's not BI -- -- NBC any region no matter who was playing a lot of that that is great I. Yeah I think about the excitement around opening the season a home opener. You know no obviously a lot of coverage. Locally which you know thank you guys -- -- all the other media outlets. They get really draft they're -- -- -- -- right until all the election all probably well. That you like to get out and meet the people I know obvious you take the phone calls and anytime we get an email for you. I forwarded along and I know you answer all the emails as you route to work in the crowd Sunday what what's the feedback you're getting face to face from the fans. -- -- player came out. What and the doors open the gates open around and you just can't and one guerrilla -- how many people show that early Europe. A hockey game. You know what. It's. When a player and I have always been an. You know. But it they're excited you have players which is which is appropriate. I'm just a bit -- up front office. Try to get all the feedback there there are so excited to see -- But it ain't coming out merger these that the terms of that feedback it's been greatly. And we are still blocked these banned. Passion they have people want -- -- they're a little go to that's sketch so you know where he would worry is people just I really don't care one wire and other anymore. Which -- -- -- figures out what a lock out. That people just unplug and don't come back and peer traffic picked up a lot of what Terry said it the very all of -- -- He went away for awhile. Well I I think you know Internet. As far as I can tell. You bring up the ratings we we will get an update from in a moment ticket sales. NBC sports network whenever NBC when they were doing to -- the other day said. They mentioned that you are. Week long 50% off sale netted about two million dollars so I think there are it would seem to be a number of instances they're number indications that say. No one's holding a grudge in buffalo. You know it was really cool about this sale where we actually out against some of the final numbers and we -- -- -- under 50000. Pieces of merchandise. And to put that into perspective. We sold more. Merchandise. Bought more merchandise and one week. Then it -- -- and they had purchased. Through the entire year 2002000. All the. We should be surprised at how much went. I was blown electorate thought that the folks who worked in our store. You know they deserve. All the congratulations in the world not only work long long days. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So they had they would then work to restock shelves clean up the store and do it all again. But would -- surprise I. Dumbfounded I I just can't believe. -- response that we got that -- -- that makes us feel about it it is -- about you know selling Africans you know that was the dramatic discounts on about the nickel and dime. What it showed us is that people remain proud to Wear sabres gear and an apple remains more -- than anything else. Meaning it -- call here but I'd be remiss -- -- and ask this because I'm sure a lot of fans wanna know. Kevin Sylvester is -- game tonight powers -- feeling any idea when Rick we'll get back to the broadcast -- I haven't heard today and I thank. I hope it should I don't know that's that's the last report I got is that certainly feel that -- and we. You know -- -- -- sparks so we want to make sure that he's ready to come back almost. Almost like a player. When -- -- Agreed this year to do all all the games it it -- -- -- -- it was in response they have enough. A schedule that was a little bit more spread out less compressed. And I I think I know I speak for myself I'd I don't want to rush back into the -- -- -- Do it because. Others going to be a lot of where terror on the back to back trouble. That not only our players go through but everyone travels with the game all animal and you know probably accept that as well you know you're not playing that back -- is difficult. Obsolete larger it'd be back and I'm hopeful it's within the next couple games. Industrial 550 to join us sabres president of black with a symbol take your calls here on WGR. Tim your -- -- already have -- your question or comment. The good guys good morning. Mr. black I'm a big fan of attending game and this weekend I came in with high hopes that one thing would change and it looks like it didn't. And then have to do with the what presented on the Jumbotron there were two disputed goals in. Well what they disallowed goals in the Philadelphia game and I had the entire crowd in unison looked up to that scoreboard. That high -- screen. To get a look at exactly what happened and after -- well after one anyway he went to a blooper -- and the other there was never any mention -- but again. What the reasoning behind it not showing. Replays for the crowd that are paying to be there to see what just happened on that previous. Goal of that's great question them. And adult actor Ricardo calling mr. black and I'd that it that around. I don't know the answer is probably feel more it a league rule but I'll. That will be item number one on my agenda when I get back you know I'll find that out I was. I wish. Look cannot achieve so I wasn't in the end of that that trichet -- my attention. On the it is I'm kappa league rule and and those depleted -- you know. In our sport other what others that you don't wanna you know trade a monster and it -- the controversial call. But that's fair question and I didn't answer for it. I eyes would've assumed its it's a league thing. I know like I've UB football tickets -- and they have a you know -- a little it's not a big scream and have a video screen and if there's any. Lot of times calls that are being reviewed on the field because they have instant replay. They don't show anything that's controversial you -- kind of look in the book you know that the luxury boxes or whatever and hopefully it is a TV monitor nearby so I just. I think callers right you'd you'd like to give you feel like here you paid for the ticket -- -- getting shipped because the guy at home is able to see the replay that you can't see but I just assumed it's always a league -- conference thing. We went through it we have sponsored the current and so and so sometimes just a limited way Connecticut sponsors and but he did mention it was a blooper -- and which I believe his sponsors as well so. They're they're look much different factors and -- people here that they're like oh great you know. We lose we don't get into it again because they're a sponsor involved in on the -- are developing. I can go to find out it's it's doing that would have been a violation. And it currently rule -- find that out that's not. This. Merger folks to. Two be more mindful of the palace that the fans that are sitting and I would like to see it as well. How often do you guys review your game day experience. Not much you -- still. So we say. Jennifer -- earned -- -- game day. I think she did a fantastic job. I try not to -- -- much but they always find myself doing that but we don't accuse. It's an important -- -- -- experience. It's actually our. Our commitment. Tires and there's only one power play and they are so few hours -- so -- others thought it is it is -- or early. I think it's amazing over the years I've come to realize. The video board the goal song the music in the breaks you know just the other day I was stunned we were getting calls -- getting inundated with -- about. The goal -- Edit it it wasn't the same it was short -- it was a long -- somebody changed the way the goal horn was used and it's amazing what people pick up one. I know -- bad. You know Germany if you let them get an -- that it -- We're still we're still like our sanctions on how to make the logistics of it happened but we have a group. -- we'll probably have graciously accepted your offer waiting for the confirmation. Are you we're still in negotiations. Are yeah. Yeah well. -- Jeremy is sort of spearheading goal or negate what I offered to do it and he's so graciously accepted is that we're gonna have a celebrity. Important goal horn blower and I'm happy teacher or a business card that is that Jeremy. I -- -- -- it's going to be that the only thing we ask because it's not a but he didn't sound. His wheelchair and stood up there for a -- just an idea of logistics and and we rule. Lightly publicized that probably won't do your personal cellphone number of people on -- on particular. Format and and you think about -- France Britain and the Mexican and her. And wait a minute hang on you score a goal the -- free points the lights go -- he hits a button it can't be that hard. And -- that's great can now we have this celebrity's Howard will be doing that shortly after -- -- And -- and you know what in fact you push whatever you feel like it don't even worry about her and the other a -- crossed the Blue Line maybe they're getting -- -- chance. It won't hit the button your rattle the guy he misses the net. I get up and you can do you. Committed that there had been no mistakes -- -- -- Practicing. Also a practicing when I pulled my car in the garage and -- -- the -- yes you know so -- and yeah I don't get very very. They don't real life if that blacks and women that it Willis Jim your -- -- -- go right ahead. Well yes go -- Jim. Yes -- to what extent I'm molester on the American hockey when he -- a lot of good teams. And the parent club insignia on your upper -- a woman -- the ever stopped. Well. Can I -- I didn't I would have to Wear black jacket when I got to Rochester I would bet they're they're Rochester American security is. So sacred do that and base which is our fan base home state. It's just one of those things and there's always an electoral board meeting -- -- we have entered -- the wall and I walked there what do I think there's. I would finish sixteen of thirty teams. But do -- the last time I looked. That's really the reason is that this can't pull that Jersey shaker. Dead before that you go let's get a ticket update I know work they mention it on the the game the other night -- five ago or at least there was 500 tickets left for Carolina tomorrow and for Toronto on Tuesday. How many tickets overall left for the season. I'll say it about 101000 the lower bowl is is basically full single seats remaining. Which are hard to note that made it together as a group we're here for your buddies and and you want to sit down -- can -- if you meet at intermission. Well we know about it at five under for the game tomorrow night but they really tax went -- they'll. Yeah that information try to publish Herbalife to our web site. But we have about 101000 remaining. Meant 500 currently teacher next few games. Very very happy that the ticket sales were all we start a fight. At this point is the perception that there are no tickets whatsoever. And there's always it's always a challenge -- -- -- it but it's a wonderful challenge. This -- last 234500. Tickets. Well good luck tonight obviously Ted drive carefully and we'll talk again next Thursday. Our your party on election wait until -- comes out in with a bag origin are competent. First player accountable and distrust noble I don't mind I didn't play at this time. Well that's good because I know I would fight you embark.
