    thought it was into both lists where. Kirk cousins is better than Matt Cassel went. We're a team can get two or three on the known at all it's it's just look at one starter are each team in the bills and Matt Cassel is their starter 32 dead last in the NFL. I don't have the fullest as far as like the the next like I went to like right thought there's a couple of you can make an argument going. Guys not decorate. 31 is art history. Actually. Is Marcus area. Is a rookie has taken a single snap in the National Football League when you just put the rookies that haven't done anything at the bottom of the NASA saying they haven't played yet in the NFL does and there's. Zero body of work on this guy. He's at thirty. Josh McCown . At 29. We panicked when the bills were talking to Josh McCown . Better graphic that appears ability to play big in the pocket problem is he's only shown it as a backup Phil and not a starter leading offense. Write an issue like this guy's good as a backup LN but who knows that he can be a starter. Council has liked who successful seasons as a starter one in Kansas City and and one in new England and yet Josh McCown is. Brian Hoyer 28. Where like these should all be lumped in and a tie for 32 practically. You're top twenty or 25 and then go G three to. Throwing in lawyer and McCown and cats geno Smith is rated ahead of Matt Cassel . My favorite part of geno Smith guys is this the little blurb that describes all these players right that decision making has
    teams noting Cleveland is that feeling better about their quarterback situation with Josh McCown . I'm not sure that anybody in Houston feels that great with Brian or if you do. In the game against the bills
    look alike they talk and they went to cat was appointed its Josh McCown roots. That's that's awful. It's the worst if it is it's so but built fans are still putting a ton of money

You know he announced so we spent hours and hours in the film and going over things and you know -- and -- -- everything's accurate ago. How much you know about buffalo mean you're here for short visit our -- could learn from I know a little bit I know on the is a very traditional team non -- guys. Had a lot. In a lot of wins baton. I'm Bruce Smith Jim Kelly goes Gaza plan.

The David -- are -- mean Russell Wilson Christian Ponder -- -- and plays with cancer chief's. Own. You were Sanders not a brown and -- for you guys in Israel is trying to do it you know different types of information move forces have an idea what to expect -- you know more incidents. EJ Manuel this year in studio on WGR. What kind of quarterback would you say you are but -- here -- -- scouting yourself you know this draft process is ever -- trying to figure out who's go to what kind of player they are if your self scouting what kind of player are. -- camera in your film of her star quarterback I think -- are conducive to thrown at him to a running. Obama to make threes -- orchestrate the office as far as protections in Gaza right. Positioned to you know the protections of -- -- in -- you the play is often -- in the run embarrassing to positions of the committee you know make a place. Our secure should put no pressure but I don't know if you noticed that the ultimate -- like thirteen you can -- -- And they've gone -- few quarterbacks sergeant Kelly. But I was gonna ask you what is that pressure like first it always comes at any quarterback position I get that. The fact that you kind of went to -- -- -- Florida State Norma gunned down -- ponder help bring it back up you think that helps at all coming. That this is deftly notes I'm immense pressure -- upon -- Went down with a shoulder injury. Whom we -- four games left we had to win to three before -- just to go to a bowl game you -- cord -- last year. Amritsar freshmen don't have a lot of inexperienced but we go out then we do as a team and you know I think almost have to pressure situations I've I've dealt with in college as success with the -- going to me more confidence move forward moving forward incidence. What what last night I watched your interview -- and if that -- Deion Sanders and I know it was a very emotional moment with what's going on with your -- -- they shorter she was it the drama with -- right -- -- what. -- I don't I don't even know how to get to a questioner Egypt and guess what what do you think the moment meant for your mom last night yeah I think. For my whole family loses crowd noticing -- word they've. They've always pushed me they always give me the tools that I need to have success on innovative approach has done such a great job raising my sister and I and you know it is noses first jobs being good human beings have been my pants will be active. -- first -- seventh -- it is to be proud and you know as excited -- have his -- and -- in with the. And -- in your mom when I read the story she's been diagnosed cancer -- she was diagnosed with cancer last summer on August justice and she's cancer free cancer free you discern the longer. What dumb how important is family in in your your big picture and your whole life and everything how important is I mean how much does that mean to import our day. Is extremely important and a smile as my backbone this -- structure right there and I think a lot of markets is bill from my father my mother. Just the way electricity -- system to have you know hard work ethic and you know them to do the right things when the -- watching nothingness. Says a lot of budget cancer. And -- You know is all that's my parents and a lot of -- says to them. When you think about going to the NF Tug on the Buffalo Bills you mentioned as a redshirt freshman you know kind of jump in and now you're gonna be rookie quarterback you walk into a room that's full of NFL veterans how do you anticipate that going how do you anticipate kind of just making yourself become a part of that. It -- first I want to do is learn as much as I can from these guys especially early on I wanna. You know being part of his team wanna earn the trust and respect my teammates on -- is not typical I want earn respect these quarterbacks Gaza are deeply improvement. You know I have experienced in the Leo wannabe professional -- -- likely to coach around. Great Coke's on the these -- of line -- coach. On -- he what they promised you know always have protection. So that you know as a quarterback and a defamation feel good -- on Inco stack is very impressive as well. I wanted to follow what Jeremy said. Almost like an underclass and -- in underclassmen comes in and they and the freshman gets the starting job right. How do you earn that trust like that they've said you that your leadership ability is top not very -- charismatic guys will follow you -- fit into a game. But how does a rookie come in and command something that presence in the huddle how do you win those guys over in the huddle and look at -- going. Right park right well I think the best ways to produce and in order to produce yet through preparing. On the slopes and moan don't you know plan is going in the work car like -- citizens learn in nomads from coaches -- the record -- -- you know Tarvaris Jackson those guys and -- -- really understand how to be professional -- because as different account loses a new ball is in the ball game in the levels. Is the leader of the lead right here and so on his -- to be doing what's on the senator Breaux and I think it's an accurate. When you came in for your visit or what exactly did they have you do. On a met with pretty much everybody and you know the front office and close item up -- met for 45 hours going over its patent on a phone whenever your tape. Both actually going over on a little bit of his office and after he wanted to see how learn Benson how fast like to retain information. And Arafat -- it anywhere with that -- on the -- will come in and listen in on the meetings in busy time in office person in -- from a monetary. And in prize for hours later he asked me go over everything I don't learn it in armored everything as those -- And it's what do they what do Tonya -- -- all when you see the offense and what they're installing because we don't know yet there -- lawsuit so. You know what he tells about Ronald moments doctors say there are to refuse them the whole playbook is fine they're expected to occur -- elevenths arrests or whatever you want a fun. Yeah it definitely is going to out of Boston's. A lot. You know or very similar to what they did a Syracuse on the with a -- and things like that is going to be new. Improved innovative so. But for being in the details the one of the things they liked about you specifically with your ability to change and that there's some flexibility that they can be multiple in the offense and they can create different things which you are friends and -- Hackett is a creative guy you know he was being innovative -- you must have -- -- -- offense and on on bass while most -- -- food supply and in the office as new. Is you know new -- of football is no definite -- them to change and move toward gas were more versed on. Last thing I got to know you -- -- other stations. Richard an article about you and in the Orlando paper and he said you've always had a chip on your shoulder most of them why. Vote no -- -- -- competitor and so you know have someone got to me and says you know negative things I need to do this and today I noses alive and work on his. We all we're all rookies now we all have a lot to work on lots approve bush. How is definitely an average of Marshall among -- in this process from college to pros.
