Why -- the buffalo. Well it was against certainly at the quarterback -- After the draft I asked them to do this because remember go back a couple weeks they're willing and said that they were gonna keep Ryan Fitzpatrick as long as he took a pay cut. They couldn't get the pay cut right and so that's Patrick ends up getting cut that open up the opportunity they looked around they considered other quarterbacks and -- with the least experience. And the fact that they gave a little bit of money a little bit more than just popped back up money. It shows there's a good chance now we'll go into these training camp with the opportunity to be the starting quarterback. ESPN's John Clayton blog about Kevin -- we'll talk about Kevin Cobb in just a moment. Tweet on the sabres and and -- reminder for you. First scary actually Ottawa sun has treated this the belief amongst several teams every player on the sabres is available but -- Be surprised if he moves by Wednesday. Was that most of us Bruce Gary doc from the Ottawa sun. The belief amongst several teams every player available but then back. That's gonna disappoint Jerry Sullivan -- this morning called him the most disappointing piece of the sabres score over the last six years. Which is an on demand all this it is in the can further the point. He said it was new wants to so we get to this afternoon with Mike -- mobile blog I would anticipate. Some sort of backlash can -- Now we've got to get we've got a -- got a plan and extend a sports I want to really examine this idea. But also I want to say that based on the reaction would put it on Twitter on FaceBook is Thomas -- the most disappointing member of the sabres -- the last six years. It's more of a blowout then do you wish it was sunny today. Like it's it's pretty bad -- the sad commentary is there are so many other guys you can bring up in that category before yeah I think he's sixth. Of those guys Stafford price anybody for Drew Stafford Derek Roy Jason nominal Connolly Ryan Miller save percentage is what. You know like -- good. But I don't know like to talk with the biggest disappointments. I don't know. I'd bring your biggest disappointment let's talk about the bills quarterback picture that's what -- bring in Glen MacNow. I'd like to broadcast yes the -- that ultra at all. Glen MacNow joining us WIP radio and Philadelphia frequent contributor to the show. There's always some kind of -- into Philadelphia that we have to deal with the now it's Kevin Cobb -- and it's Howard Jeremy good morning hi Dylan. I remember which what a year ago that you called me up and -- that you all disappointed about an -- you know. Or maybe don't they think that. That that there might be a difference I don't think anyone was really all that -- said about Vince Young whereas I think there's a little bit of and for Kevin come. I I -- entered an -- or remember you know. No I think there's I think there's nobody's looking at Kevin Cobb just to let you know them before we delve into this I don't think anybody's going. -- Well it's why then. Again another guy whose mediocre and they still need to draft a guy really soon so having so having said that what should what should they feel about Kevin Cobb. Well I think -- -- -- Colbert in a -- got a -- two years and they're gonna. Go after rookie quarterback said to -- they don't wanna -- Gina Smith because you're gonna be that I don't think you'd sort of minor -- but mainly. You know they're gonna refugee manual override -- the second round negative of that later they figure those guys will be ready to start when he talks for a year or two. And that that's the case that's okay. Bombed the upside Kevin -- is. He's got to make accurate short game. Are you to delegate leader he's either good pitch -- he's you know he's. That victory in doubt he's the top guy despite all the injuries that the diet member when he first illegal pleaded story about how he used to go taxes. The -- wild -- -- just tonight. And an end run out shakedown aboard -- in the heartland like I mean the man to man. New favorite player that that's what he will be. Well I've been up and while there are used to around played rotisserie baseball he's out there the -- and art. A -- so well. He got back on form which is nice he -- -- have a real good arm you know it is his long passes or are not good at all. -- so -- that judgment in the inconsistent. But throw interceptions that'll have you slept near as he has been heard a lot of other. What are called -- injury prone you know he's he's definitely not -- he -- but he hasn't really horrible injuries. And -- -- okay as a playful where's that guy is gonna get you through to whoever the next Eric is. The kind of -- it. I wanted to you know what I wanna ask you about his arm because. You know a guy on Twitter earlier said he you know -- he's he's he's like he's fits essentially. Another guy you look and -- And the guy treat him he's always got a much better on that it's Patrick OK so we played in. Cold weather city and Philadelphia wintry conditions wins on other stuff and it -- like he does not have that strong an arm to make that the path. There does not have a strong -- now that's the big not immediately he has an accurate -- short passes you know. I think its first year nears completion rate was in the sixties and was was fine. And -- under fifteen yards you'll get the ball in the right spot but. When he starts to throw up and it's a windy day at that thing will -- caught up in the wind east. Kiki get eight it was gonna come in the box or game in December and it's -- forty yards down the field is just not. So you don't -- guys probably the most overpaid player in the history of the NFL they know what he's done well I guess it's. Patrick Sean Merriman -- Beck and Sean -- yes -- are yet and -- preferences same team that brought him in resigning. Yeah well -- -- and done something in his career you know -- -- doubt that could ultimately pick somebody who thought he would do and never did it but. I don't hold that against a guy really gets hit by the way these these he's a nice guy aids -- like from your Randy available. You have to say that because otherwise they'll hunt you down of the night and plunged in their pocket. -- -- all the while bored without. They aren't we we you know what when he was in Philly and and guys were talking about whether that they should keep them long term sign trade of all that. Where you where you -- not necessarily that one of those guys who thought he could be the long term answer in Philadelphia. I did not think he was so long term answer that directly go -- it at the long term answer since. About seven when Donovan McNabb career started going down. Now when he came in early he showed himself and yet some initial success. But then you begin to see you know the mistake she would make bad judgment sometimes when you just -- for the bad judgment. And I don't they'll never be that we absolutely top ten quarterback normally -- be serviceable guy. I think good team with a good running game stout defense seat okay. I don't know what that's what the bill Gardner. Well I think I actually don't have a good run against them you know. I think did a good runner encroached. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They have had -- good enough. Certainly better than Arizona today if cop wins the job to maybe give them a little time to get rid of the football as opposed to the from what I saw cardinals game three was just he had no time -- getting walloped in and while ironically suffered a season ending injury in the loss to the bills. Did you do whatever you get crushed out there was a controversy with him last year and again -- Oakland. The -- defensive players entry that you Google this but one very deep sense of one of them on Oakland which used -- of bailing out in whipping -- being afraid -- Lacking -- Which is about the worst thing you can choose in a player being. I remember where I was really surprised by it because let's start when he played here in -- and I -- here. It would take this hit he would not shy away from the contact and I always important for bravery. I watch and a regular basis and Arizona but it seemed unfair charged in the well and a guy that you know it is ridge ripped from his rib cage for God's -- and he comes back so I don't think he can accused Libyans saw. It was Tommy Kelly who accused him -- -- who called him quote scared and skittish. -- that was the words get it yeah yeah I never got that sense. There's a lot of thinking not but I would never question his bravery as I've seen a guy they just horrendous hits and get back up and -- I saw as hot last year -- gaming at the bills that I saw their game against the Ramsey was just gotten. While and he just kept coming back well that they knocked about the bills game but their rams game you're getting walloped him to tackle we get beat. So fast that he was just getting hammered kept kept getting up and try to throw the football. I played that what you worry about it and I take -- so many hits the big losses is effective missile that that -- hit the deck and they're taught them. You know I can't say that that's what you -- find out. I listen I know -- -- and he -- a year not asking about Trent Edwards so odds are in the middle of they'll be a little. Rick they idolize you guys -- -- -- -- rumors a wild government that buffalo man I would love a man and a lot that don't might pick and it makes it definitely. Having grown up in buffalo I remain there will always be it could send the bills I wouldn't wish it upon themselves. Like I lets up and say everything you need Danielle flyers I think clearly felt great start. -- -- -- Obama I'll look goalie I'm a little nervous here the flyers just announced Max Talbot is out indefinitely and yeah they are making a run for the top pick and I don't like it. This is a race. There's a race and the sabres better the better you know bring their DT -- game bring their half game if they're gonna beat the flyers of that to the topic. I got a watery area right there you have -- -- -- electric taken ahead of the flyers. There are always thanks glad. Oh -- what are obviously Howard Philadelphia. In 2007 did the one year turnaround. Yeah any doubt they'll do what again and big trades what he's -- free right don't think they'll do it again if they pick the top three. Maybe they win the lottery and they take Seth Jones and he replaces Chris Pronger and they've got some good young players yes they do and they've had a ton of injuries. And they might fire their coach I don't know what their -- access -- like but they've got some good young guys up until.
