    that we get back and we are also have some fun with Philip Rivers rumor you're just joining a little bit late. A Bay Area journalist this year first himself on Twitter. Tweeted out yesterday that Philip Rivers doesn't have interest in going to LA. And that's different Cisco would be an interested suitor of Philip Rivers so we. Cited to have this discussion if the chargers are willing to trade Philip Rivers that this is true with this gentleman is tweeted out. That he doesn't wanna go to LA and the chargers are willing to part with Philip Rivers . What are the chances the bills could actually get Philip Rivers would you want Philip Rivers . By the way that's our web poll to at WGR 550 dot com of the ring if the chargers actually traded Philip Rivers would you want the bills to go get him. Absolutely big time upgraded quarterback or no thanks 21 ING's last season he's
    pray with you here in double your thanks for joining us. Actor Philip Rivers discussion here in a second also taking your calls on the sabres there win over the Dallas Stars yesterday. Again bows on the last hour if you missed it. It's available. In on demand audio WGR 550 dot com or else put up web poll about Philip Rivers why you might ask would Philip Rivers be the subject of our web pulpit. Well here's one tweet yesterday from David. He's a cat is that Bay Area journalist he. And he said this. Per source. Chargers QB Philip Rivers not interest it in a move to LA. 49ers are interested suitors. Which got us thinking about Philip Rivers and if it would get to the point where San Diego let's say Philip Rivers went in and said. Yeah I wanna play in LA I want it ought to be traded if sandy wanted to trade Philip Rivers or was forced to trade Philip Rivers what chances would give the bills of landing him. What should the bills give up to get him. Of which I said to sure you can take my first round pick I would give that up for Philip Rivers the tenth pick chances of getting him. I think we get down to whether or not dead shall we you know San Diego is gonna trade Philip Rivers to make him happier who's gonna say are you wanna leave. Fine we're gonna get the best deal possible then that it would behoove the bills to make the best offer to get Philip Rivers are not expecting it I would say they wouldn't trade him. He he's one of the best quarterbacks. He gives me my best chance to win I know what their records have been the last couple of years. And someone will point out once again that he threw 21 picks last season. This past season he also did throw 33 touchdowns I wouldn't trade Philip Rivers if they're going to trade him eyeball and what are you want. Name it whatever you want because that's a big time upgrade for the Buffalo Bills then. I guess spent the off season. Go find your safety go find cornerback will find you wide receiver you can still draft another quarterback. And have Cordell Jones and drafted quarterback trying to figure out how to play in this league with a new offensive coordinator. But that would be a major upgrade so yes I'm all it what are you want to name it. We were talking about rivers this morning in the idea of even. A rumor of Philip Rivers being on the market may be excited about this discussion. More so than rubble with Romo I'd be nerves with Romo I'd
    quarterback and maybe you thought you go to San Diego or step Philip Rivers who now wants to leap. I just I just wonder the motivations of each person involved and how Tyrod Taylor fits into this mix. I don't wanna give up the tenth pick for Philip Rivers I might wanna use a tenth pick on a quarterback. And I know there's no guarantee you'll ever be as good as rivers but at least second maybe set myself up for you know ten years of being good if I get it right and I'm just. I'm ready for the bills to show me like show me some cards here what's what's your correction it fits Brad Childress that it's the offensive coordinator position. Okay I'll start thinking that your gonna look at nick foals who will be released by the Kansas City Chiefs . That I mentioned in article today on line about. The chiefs maybe should move on from Alex Smith what do team. Try to get him. And if there's any team in the league that would say who. That seems like a good idea with a built Billick the top of the list best I can definitely get chewed through the playoffs especially if they brought in Brad Childress . You think you would take one of those guys that's what is so they would move on from Alex Smith and just use nick fall I don't think they will move on from Alex Smith there I really don't. But it's been suggested and how many years can Kansas City do this before they decided they they

Her source chargers QB Philip Rivers is not instantly removed LA and 49ers are interested suitors. I would go dot dot dot so would the bills and beat a number of other teams with the jets would be inched and I would think the browns would be and didn't the bears and Texans and anybody.

Replay what happened the previous weeks of the key moments to keep games the key stories and come up with -- -- -- moment of the week little bit a bit of a different -- let them that we by the gets what attribute Knight moment that we might be a moment of the year the last. Ten years you know it doesn't it is one of the biggest stories ever in Buffalo's sports leagues. Questions on the that was a shock and expected as well and you gun owners 95 years old my grandmother's a 102. And she's a 102 I can tell you living. As someone who as someone your family that's battled for so long -- Every phone call on the note are not the god bless her you know right now let's every single phone while -- in the service. -- shock sets in even with the age so full rundown everyone that we had on the course of the couple days of course the news the Ralph Wilson passed away. -- -- Stuff. -- very tough. I'm working for eighteen years and tough talk from almost every day for eighteen years sometimes sometimes multiple times that car. And you know what he's meant to us. Didn't -- organization he's our leader our mentor friend. What he's. How he loved his players. And I loved our community. Special guy. They don't make -- microproze. They just don't. Speaking of those players we heard from so many including Pete -- dollars. When you came back with a lump iron into everybody's name and hey -- need -- -- -- about is -- the CEO our fault it was the team. How much I think he felt. A little bit like the players for his -- a little bit and they took an interest -- in each and every player knew your name and what was going Bob McGee -- football. Local hopeful bill put -- in the city of both quoted in news all of these trucks or they want the calls orders in terms of. You refer to as players as his sons. Must be told all of them this is Thurman Thomas said he was his favorite I'm gonna missing. Without a doubt. You know he used to call me this -- -- He's always laugh and joke about. And when you have that type of relationship. It hits home. And my guess I was very close in the solution. Ruben Brown tells the story about the way that he treated his players Nikita Jim Kelly I can remember sitting at sitting on the bench at practice in the old stadium. When Jim Kelly says to -- right Kate -- know what you need to do you need to build that airplane hangar. That you could just put everything and we can practice as hard. Boom within a year we have. That's what are these. Steve tasker also join us to talk about ruffles and aside in the navy. Not every fan knew about around. You know you might Ralph anything he was trying to hide from any. He. You know we knew that there were certain parameters these tenants and to it an owner of the players understood and respected him for and we liked the fact. And some twisted kind of way -- Ralph had a reputation for being hot and of course for caring about the game -- never told you went. It could be wearing no sleep -- why -- open up truck. You -- if you would have thought like on the field to be up there and check there he talked before second. It is our right back when -- always watching our. On the bills for their entire existence of -- a lot of stories lot of different areas Marv Levy here of course for one of the better times with team for Super Bowls and talk about -- role with the team. What they're looking for a moment is sort of speech he was just. Common man and let the guy that direct to on the back of and smile as he would just share that the -- that was that was about it you could see it. In him it would just I expected this attitude he was it was a goal. The alumni that we reached out to we're all very quick -- -- -- story but granderson. It to -- and -- the best -- in the lead dealing with their little -- players. The Buffalo Bills is the only team that I know all of that actually partners with whom back. And that we had such a great. Relationship. And respect for -- at all they've been mr. Wilson but the Buffalo -- in general. And the communities they have benefited her too because we do a lot of things -- -- the community did he helped out organizations that need help and and we are there this helps support. And the alumni of course. Many of them staying close we've talked about Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas just this week Phil Hanson says there's a reason for that. -- collect part of our bill spam or not because well -- what I did a book -- I'll bet it'll just look vote. I opened. -- -- a lot away large. Electric -- Some of the family members over the course of time more ushered out Bill Polian. Who said there were no hard feelings -- not big huge rift talked about the integrity that mr. Wilson had. I think it's very simple. And it's why in the hall of -- He represents. A big greatest generation. Who who kept the world free not only this country but the world tree. He represents. Integrity. Of the highest order and the Buffalo Bills are in buffalo. To this state because he kept his work. Heard from a lot of old timers current players of course expressing. Their appreciation for Ralph Wilson CJ Spiller. Mop -- some of the meanest -- would prevail but it got what twelve players are such a little bit which does and it's an immediate upside. Well yes we've gotten involved in. That in this but rebels put up a lot of so you know what you don't let them -- But I mean that he here yeah -- there. Oh yeah this is something a moment. So you know what. That Clinton colleges and it's is that a lot of that out pictures. Sort of. And Brian mormons they -- and shame and you didn't feel like you're just a player you felt like. Somebody really cared about and column you know -- I can say just a good man he's BA get big heart. It's a great person arm and -- I've got so much respect for him in and out in a really having him around and obviously like you said he hadn't been around a lot and in the last couple years but. Arm his presence was always there everybody you know such a deep respect for him. -- actually -- entirely in the end especially in not in our locker room. And of course this year there'll likely be a rallying cry. For the buffalo bills' Fred Jackson he made a point to it to be here you know even though he wasn't here physically you know we. We did hear from -- it just wasn't directly from him. You know and you know Robin in the locker room you know when he'd come through on. You know pregame you know and you know talk to us give us no speeches that training camp when you've had a chance to make it out there are many can't. And you always got that you know we're all motivated you know especially. You know with the with -- with his passing them we wanna continue to cement his legacy you know hornets -- -- he's an -- or something that a lot of guys all the guys here. You know focus on this. You know we want and honor him and you know what a great way to honor him is going on when a lot of organization. So many shared so many stories memories we have callers we -- bills legends. People around the football world as well including. Chris Berman. Big Ralph Wilson has gone through life not expecting anything. Trying to make good things happen but not about himself this. Charitable beyond belief yet he doesn't really want you to know all about it. He served in both oceans in the -- don't want to. By doing good things for people I would put that to have a list. As the pilot of what Chris Berman had to say about. The Pacific and the Atlantic theater in the -- thing that really kind of jumped out -- mean in team. Post script is like the you know as effectively he'll be the obituaries. Our rob Miller Lite moment of the weaker whenever our our tribute to Ralph Wilson -- we kind of put the segment aside for. A tribute to Ralph Wilson the only owner the Buffalo Bills have ever had passes away at the age of 95 -- Have a passion for the game. That's the most important this is not a money making thing. No one no one infusion of 7000. Fans. She's that -- -- through -- money for its eco on the TV contract and his teammate and a portion. There's not that. Performing important really active in football you have to do so now. -- -- And I'm not you know if anyone knows.

If the Chargers actually traded Philip Rivers, would you want the Bills to get him?
  Absolutely! Big time upgrade at QB
  No thanks. 21 INT's last season. He's a turnover machine
