Nudge nudge wink wink would keep the bills here. And does -- story explain the wide nine defense which is the philosophical approach used by one bills' defense coordinator Jim Schwartz. So that's available as I said if you miss in the interviews. Complete hours. Complete show -- Sweet we also will have links separately to some of the guests that are on the radio station check out the on demand audio delete your pocket to -- have had a breakfast this morning. I do I help -- before the shell. Get them to read you a couple of things that might make you not want to -- your breakfast. And it might come back up or something I I don't I. I don't mean to be I -- an Arabic now I have my apple -- -- that let you know for a lack of a better way to play it I basically. Wanted to vomit recently quotes in the Buffalo News on the heels of this job until we story that just went out. Within the past hour so actually from last night I guess I'm just getting to a button on the heels of the AP report a report in Buffalo News says. The group composed the Toronto investors and Jon Bon -- looking to purchase the bills insist they insist now that it's not looking at potential new sites in the southern Unser and answer area. And the plans to keep the team Western New York you're the quotes. That basically wanna make meat stick might finger down my throat. I know what whatever quotes you have I will pop. York quotes with something else that -- OK here we go. This is from every American -- Toronto engineer who is a stadium consulted by the group right at how does this -- connect gonna stop is like one line yes so. How does an engineer slash consultant for the group. Claimed to know the inner workings. Of Larry -- and bomb Jon Bon Jovi Edward Rogers and that group when he that they wouldn't kind of -- to him to get it out there that they want it to be known that they wanna keep your and they really don't just audience at that part. I'm just saying like how he means right is it maybe he's good friends and one of the guys I don't know but I think. If Europe. If you're planning a bit on the bills I would think you would keep it pretty close to the best what you were doing unless this or they want -- consultant guy gets a lot I mean -- I'm glad -- CC. Consultant to a stadium that you're looking to build that you talked about right I just don't know how this guy becomes an authoritative source on what Larry Tanenbaum is thinking like this quote. Here's his quote get the spoon out. Quote it's the Buffalo Bills and they will do everything they can yen to make that work there. What did I tell it would be said. We will do everything we can't you make it work and that's exactly out of the we want our team and moved -- -- playbook and Rick there that's out of the -- We're gonna lights -- T until we get the team because this is what we have to say. He also went on to say here's another one quote. I don't think there would be anything else they'd be looking at right now. Right now. There I would say yeah right now at this present that we know that's actually not true but. We don't don't believe these people -- Johnny I'm sorry but I'm sure there's a lot of back don't be naive people. The one of the other comments in the not in the interview with the news. This gentleman mr. Bergen and Lieberman said. We've been looking at engineering type studies and preliminary designs for stadium we've been doing that for awhile we have no clue where we might build it. We've done no feasibility. On any sites and that's his interview at the Buffalo News. John -- -- Associated Press who has a very reputable. Solid reporter. I'd -- -- talent on his reputation on that but John Mora who knows what he's doing. In his AP story he says not only they conducted feasibility story the study rather -- -- study identified potential sites. True in Toronto one on the waterfront one in the suburb of miss -- shot. So you know here's any -- -- the news we've done no feasibility on any site we have no clue where we might build it. And yet whoever I don't know -- sources for the AP's story but. A person close to the situation tells him not only did they do a study. What they've got three potential stadium sites are looking at George what is so. You know clearly they're backtracking. Apart actually more so than your quotes. The part that would really -- Gary I think I speak for everybody here in questioner that's when I say we don't trust. For 12. We don't trust Jon Bon Jovi would translate tantamount we trust Rogers communications we don't believe Ron Jaworski says Joba -- would do the right thing keep -- don't believe any of -- stuff. I think write and speak -- it's a bunch of baloney. And yet in the news story. Their. It is mentioned that the the is Toronto group. Will be meeting. With buffalo area developers on Wednesday. This is again citing -- -- in this engineering consultant. He said he and others involved with the group's efforts Toronto's efforts will meet with two quote prominent. Buffalo area developers Wednesday. To discuss sites they have in mind for the new stadium. He declined to elaborate. And I'm I'm thinking of the meeting with buffalo area developers obviously they're talking about buffalo -- sites there's the hypocrisy to another level so not only the -- you have to believe -- How are gonna get. If they're gonna pick up time and meet with developers from buffalo and I think you guys when we keep the team here wink wink. You all address all window dressing. They're gonna meet with buffalo people so that they can go to court or go to the trust and say. What that we we've met the -- people here. It's all window dressing to me that looked good to me that's more repulsive and that you're gonna meet with cash -- site that insulting we all know what you're up to we all know which one do you keep your hands off our team. All right so the bills went to camp Sunday first team in the league never but he didn't camp including her -- in the AFC east will begin our camp previous by talk a little bit about the team at the top. Of the division forever it seems the New England Patriots Mike -- and joining us WEEI radio in Boston they -- it's Howard itself good morning how are you doing over there in New England. And I guess that would be not so well. Maybe that was an element of even Brady's gonna. Operate there like. I'm ready to go at those guys they're losing their team so -- even picked at anyway buffalo navy that was Phyllis Lyon from the football gods. That that was pretty fun. And you know what I I think it's it's about for my first question on my first question is going to be. Hey Mike. -- Brady retiring. War hate any chance radiates a shell of his former self so far after the start day in training camp. The decline last year I know people at their station I talk with people at the guy. They believe several that believe that that's really not true it was on the decline there were other things that he wasn't right. I believe he was I watched. The top -- I've seen throughout his career he wasn't but how much of -- was him how much of that was the offensive line all the -- his team is -- top tight ends were gone wide receiving -- turned over you know a lot I mean. It sure it because if we're going to say I guess can have about what you gonna say. With a guy like Tom -- doesn't matter what's around him everybody's going to be great because it's not Brady and then he starts struggling and you say well look what's around. I guess you can't have it both ways either he raises all boats and then he's not good enough to raise all boats or you know you can't you can't delineate you can't differentiate between us. They all three will try to reestablish like April 305 -- to join us 8885525. If you we've spent a good -- -- the time this morning talking about. The latest in the throttle force the Associated Press story in in the comments about how. You know. Day they don't plan moving the team they're going to be -- buffalo area developers it honestly it's not even like a I don't have like a question for you to join and it's basically just -- venting because I don't think anybody believes a word they're saying it. So. We have Mike back on my track VW EI radio in Boston mayor Mike it's Howard -- -- -- to -- Big guys -- it's gone through my Bon Jovi just. And that -- -- them hours that's cruel like you don't don't get is with a low blow to start things off. Ha aren't all right -- nice talking -- you think that's. A. You know I mean Gillette Stadium in the conspiracies. Juries always down because -- it is ironic that Jon Bon Jovi as one of alcoholic checks. Very closest friends are reading about what you will -- Politico. But we had we got Albert her on the show yesterday and he was on. I don't know which I don't know -- he I would every was not a station in Boston. And the host there. We're talking about this all. Well you know what if Belichick wants to prove he can win without Brady and Bon Jovi gets the bills than Belichick -- coach the bills went by -- becomes the owner there was a a rather funny one minute discussion. And yeah I've got about all I think you need to -- to -- that is a minute because talks about how much of a chance I think that has happened. Mike is Tom Brady's play going down please please please tell me yes. I would say now I think that is. One of those stories over the summer. That people were desperate to write about because a principal -- gossip pages started getting all the about. Tom Brady and Gisele may be out on the rocks. There's really not going to talk about a -- You know he needs more weapons -- Well it doesn't really advance the story. You know coming up with some statistical conspiracy. And current state that Brady is diminishing and he'll significantly. Well that -- rile people up and that's really what I think all outlook you can make numbers they want -- -- -- and I think that's what. You know it was done over the summer in that story that Brady is no longer in the top five quarterbacks statistic -- are very well may -- case. But I think in terms of guys you want beating the offense and leading this particular offense. And knowing what how global shark monster on the golf trance. Others no one more suited and Tom Brady. And it ends right there and I'm sorry to burst your bubble but you know it Tom Brady what he was back at 2007. No I don't think it is. Part and parcel because you know -- the weapon but he added 20072008. But he still. I implement the three court action would block running -- change if you started up -- -- tomorrow. So in your opinion where are the questions where are your concerns for the 2014 -- as they open up camp. Over senator protecting cornerback -- right Mondale had a rough year last year I still think the patriots you can get pressure on the patriots. If they don't shell and a commitment to. Running the ball I think Steven Ridley is a big weapon for them but I can you know not only can hold onto the ball but will the patriot show a more. Sustained commitment to run the ball taking some of the pressure Brady it making Brady's play action. A little bit. Or tractor. Tom Brady you know he age this year started rolling out I think patriots and charged with candles. You know offensive coordinator wants you were the Brady maybe get out of pocket more of the point of but I just -- about the off a lot I think. There's still some questions about how well we're gonna protect Brady there's a new offensive line coach this year country. Scarnecchia is gone and gave the -- can be I knew I would say about that didn't like try -- -- groups as what we call. -- up front line coach is seen here in doubt this could be some transition their the other. Issue for the patriots no question that the health events will work and the defense a -- probably going to be it. Not to stop Iran which they weren't able to do a key times last year pot and not allowed. Seemed to really get out. On the screen pass and convert big search -- bird count against these apps. Are those the two big questions Korea I think the secondary are appropriate for coming on board what Brendan grabbed her. Streaks -- Orton mentioned not long strings were detained or perhaps on the -- a lot of versatility. That -- -- will or Cologne on line. And how drug made a statistically he also -- her complexion or collateralized or booster. Players to question. Well it hurt the patriots that they lost ball Brandon Spikes in his position coach essentially pepper Johnson. To the Buffalo Bills a team within their division how much will that get them. I think it'll maybe you didn't expect. I think they do they thought Brandon Spikes Louis. I'm too much of a special player he can do one thing and doing very well that is stopped -- was a big hitter no question. Bomb but it wasn't on the field now and he was getting burned in pass coverage. And I think could still be all right without proper you know interpret knows something about what Bill Belichick likes to do on defense there's a question about that he'll be an advantage. For the -- so when they play two times here. Other than that I don't think will go to those are huge loss. For the patriots site I think has -- before other bigger concern our in house in terms of protecting Brady. And how they handle Iran and and the perimeter passing game. How is how is the health of Rob Gronkowski and and are the expectations I guess tied into the health obviously but on the expectation that he will. Return to be the freakish weapon that he has been. Yeah will be expectation certainly Arab that she will be the number one weapon once again for Tom Brady. And that he will be healthy once again once -- starts what would go a 100% don't know. He -- you know of course our country will not start the season on PUP it's been cleared practiced. On the field yesterday. Actually perhaps in number it's not girls -- the -- in part yet. -- so -- summit and are a lot about a lot control. Squaring yeah. Look what I would call eight me sleep on his surgically repaired right leg with great support. Whimpering. But it worked out. Ambulatory. Actual race and allow more agility you obviously from -- and whatnot. Are supposed to -- outspoken critics agree where. On his slot many could not noted that today. And for good pretending. To -- -- wide receiver either need to be tightened -- -- -- look pretty quickly without -- tortured. And -- looked pretty good -- -- -- -- -- -- how much cutting and I expect him in full -- critics. Mike thanks for coming all of us appreciate the update from new England and enjoy the football seasons -- I cannot wake look forward to it and on a serious note I do hope the bills enjoyed a resurgence this year or even with a couple losses. You know -- of I think adults are optional on the way back. Thanks Mike we'll take it -- again and get this with thanks thanks for coming on my. My -- joining us WEE I radio in Boston we'll talk a little bit next week about the dolphins and the jets they have also open camps. As well Howard sell Matthew with you here on W -- will get back. -- about it coming up at nine from USA today he was -- -- skip earlier this week we'll get his perspective on the camp. And our -- like moment we coming -- -- 45 when we get back is the season for running backs to hold out. We'll tell you who the newest one is animal talk about whether or not there's any kind of trickle down impact. On CJ Spiller who's going last year its contract with the bills that's coming up on WG. Here. CR Sports Radio 550 sports. It does not help them -- and ended it the first real sign that they've had and to at least make some initial plan. And and feasibility study about a potential site in Toronto. And in a built this state having -- -- -- -- they've been college of somebody's intentions and relocate the team. But it doesn't help them. That is John war of the Associated Press -- report yesterday. Says perspective bills ownership group led by Jon Bon Jovi has conducted a feasibility study did not only buying the team. But building a stadium in or near Toronto. However as you just heard right there police state team can't be sold anyone with no intentions to move the team before the lease expires. Head over WGR like that the dot com for more of that story and on demand audio to be your fact that the dot com.

Sports updates at the top and bottom of every hour or when sports is breaks -- south of -- she'll -- EGR Sports Radio by fifty. Is that they understand office allow more he's more more sent over and in the pocket. And now he -- throws they're more pretty more accurate with a TD. -- -- -- helping him after employment. From the list are nobody came animals -- We're talking about what concerns you the most right now at this point in time. The bills offense to the bills' defense. A situation moment. We put it up as the web poll as well but it is what popular vote in and and it confirms what I thought. We we we brought it up because earlier this week itself Allentown on the show and talked about how it was it was. Like the -- final -- about defense. Issues. And -- and in German I looked at each other camp that they were like. But it was a -- and Peter King wrote the same thing for the guys couple that you guys committed camping out to be fine. -- match up problems that has gone Alonso was injured he's out for the year birds gone problem that's not a -- and it would all of that. -- -- tonight and I think a lot of people tell -- they still feel more comfortable because. That might be more bullet point concerns like a longer list on defense. But there's one. On offense that trumps everything -- that he too. And that's -- I think. That bills fans and much more concerned right now about their offense. Then their defense. Abort its worth you if you put any stock and how guys look at training camp the first week of training camp practices won't make you feel any better about -- -- authentic. And so our web blows up which concerns you most -- to defense and at last check 81% voting offense 19% defense you can join in at 8030550. 88550. To 550 are also talking about. The stuff going on with Toronto in the latest but it's all a bunch of hooey. You know I don't. If you are the one bills fan that actually believes what the people in Toronto are saying by all means let us know. But. It's probably a stretch to say there is one bills and that -- anything that's coming out of Toronto. Let me know because actually have a budget analysts in Florida team might be accident to. That -- sloppy at times hearing -- Path let's -- let's let's exchange brochures outlets and we'll talk so I asked about running backs because and this is a big year for CJ Spiller we've talked a lot about the fact that both he and Fred Jackson for that matter. Are going into the following year of their contract. And what those are gonna do about Spiller and try to extend and should they try to extend them religious you know hit the market and leave how much would you pay running backs -- four points. So Jamaal Charles had years left on his contract word gets out he's gonna hold out. Boom there's a new deal attack on two more years on his contract in Kansas City. All got eighteen million dollars in new money money Charles out on top what do you left a lot for 888 position that we didn't really devaluing that right it's funny though I I look at his numbers for him. -- think you make at least twenty. -- 27. Is really at the -- lynch she's 28. I looked at what can look at his numbers are because I know you know last it seems like the bills play Kansas City every year now. And they always talk about Jamaal Charles and how much she contributes to that offense -- -- over 35%. There's some. That out -- don't have an army of of total yardage in the -- to the office how much comes from Jamaal Charles if you look back in his last four years. Three of the four years. -- well I think -- for sure -- over 17100 yards total yards from scrimmage. Three of the years he was much higher than what TJ said. His rushing his receiving -- accused of leading receiver when you're. Right it's. Legitimately mean he is deep focal point of their profit she does. The lion's share of work for the Kansas City office if you could ever make -- case for extending a running back. Honestly I would have said Jamaal Charles I will not -- about Marshawn Lynch. I putts I would not about CJ -- I think the what with what Charles is role is in that offense and how much he does. And who else is there around him I can see kids and he's saying yeah. A five year they just tacked on two more years to the existing two years left on the deal I think it's a Smart move for them. I wouldn't due to piracy apple Marshawn Lynch. Is now out and now the word is out -- he's gonna holdout from training camp he wants a new contract wouldn't do that a virus Seattle while. He here's the problem with -- okay. It's what one thing is that one extension and what it is going into law last year of his deal. You can understand like you wanna have your security for you get to August or September and an injury happens and all of a sudden you're really you know your -- got a lot because you didn't play it right and now you know you're at the mercy of what they're gonna -- This guy has two years left and ideally cite just two years ago but let me tell you about that deal were quick -- okay. Two years ago Marshawn Lynch signs a big deal with Seattle right. He gets up front. Six million dollar signing bonus. AM the first two years of the deal guaranteed which total at all everything seventeen million dollars he still is another. Two years about that Cuba and about these 1213 was for -- thirty million -- -- contract but now that all the guaranteed money has been given to him. -- still is two years left he says it's more a lot more right he's not his base salaries aren't where he thinks they should be. Do you got the money up front that's the trade off in this situation already had a. What you do and he's not alone does this happen again -- -- organize a national audit all the wars they get it they get. Pardon me in wanting to help them as. It's signing bonuses that's right and it helps the team because you can spread it out -- -- the cap number but the interior at -- -- from a lot of other sports as they get when you sign. Pace Al thanks for signing a new contract here's ten million dollars and you'll still get your base salary for that year and whatever roster bonus perhaps work up on -- But you just took it on the line. Here's ten million dollars so they do get the signing bonuses but again their bases are a little bit lower so they get the back in the deal that when it's your ball in the ground and go. I'm making five million -- right what's up with less likely you are but do you got your money first you got the money up front. We paid you to start the contract. The money -- basically what we're gonna give you for the four years we're getting a lot of it before you get through that for -- and -- halfway through. Now that he has his money he already has isn't happy guaranteed. He says. I'm not making enough I need more. He waited until that happened obviously he does have one year left which it was the case right yet I can how to understand okay he needs a little more security that you guys do. It's not guaranteed the last year. -- the next two years -- guarantee I get that part of it. But this is ridiculous this is that this is the part of sports that just make me really -- they took care of him argue took care. Are you concerned at all. I'm not I don't think like I said if you look at Jamaal charles' numbers CJ does not stack up to Jamaal Charles. TJ is 2012 was tremendous Jamaal Charles has done that three of the last four years. Are you concerned at all about a trickle down impacting. He -- seller of course he has a big year especially though. That and let -- announce that he's not I'd addition I don't think he's holding out the obvious she needs to go play because he's coming off an injured. Lower production 2013 so that's not a problem on the -- Marshawn Lynch -- all -- suddenly camp and say I want a big contract. But I I'd always be worried he doesn't deserve what Charles got because Charles has been far more productive than CJ Spiller. Over a longer amount of time. But I always worry about the trickled out of Charles is getting -- CJ would want expert who want why and his price will go up because everybody's prices are going up and running backs -- -- -- what happens. But I sort of course it's going to I saw it -- -- and change my mind about Spiller I just I just did I would rarely rarely rarely rarely given it extension to a running back and just not for 456 million dollars its not worth it. I would give it to lynch I would give it -- I think chiefs did the right thing because Charles is just such an amazing. I think the bills are open to it but they definitely wanna see him performance they healthy yet they -- -- at the security blanket I think Dumars brought the way I gotta tell yeah. Has looked really good in camp I have gone local practices and unlike. That can play football he's really gut and we've heard other people from Philly even say you're gonna really like them but some. CJ told media that after practice he feels really good he feels he said I feel like it did in 2012 but I know he knows that. The pressure's on him for this contract -- big year for him he's trying to prove it to 32 teams not just the bills. Our mill -- coming up just a moment we have some bills moments -- and national moments as well she with the winner was we will also remind -- that it's a great weekend. For the -- that a lot going on at the ballpark tonight. Is the Friday night bash of course out of the game is at seven.

All the did that -- that the red hair could not remember who. It'll come. Home it was a big hog I forget my interns names sometimes -- not hurt you. It's a -- -- remember what they look like that's -- Howard. Is that guy with that knows. I remember our producers and believe me we've had a lot of them so that's most of them want to accomplish man now that's true of the tree well yeah I wish you change your name. Howard's Alan not the end Matt. Jarrett bell coming up at nine USA today we'll talk about -- camp with him plus. We'll -- Andre regional bells one of the hall of fame voters and under of course is going in the Pro Football Hall of Fame next weekend but it is time. First for -- Miller -- moment of the week it is brought to you by Miller -- it's not just a good time it's Miller time you know. I'm training camp got started I don't know if you knew this Howard I should probably head out there. -- -- -- The local sports team in the local football team you know what I'm gonna put on my calendar next week I promise I will do my best to get that. It's a good idea so the bills started camp they started throwing the football running the football doing the other football things kicking it. What else. No tackling now. Running well running without the football. In attempts to get the football doing the conditioning drill thing for the National Football League game of football and there was one Fella. Who Joseph discount you rank this is most -- Buffalo Bill was not on hand. Because he could not pass conditioning tests now you remember a few years ago I think Albert Haynesworth couldn't and like Bolick of ESPN. Did the conditioning test and pass that on ESPN as well that's pretty funny -- So this conditioning test is not running up Kilimanjaro. More except kind of shared that view -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Muscle -- it's not and would come out of shape I mean there's no more and more -- to look at all if commotion around football. There's no way. -- -- -- -- -- I agree it's the around football. It is a year -- Marcel Darius has finally passed his conditioning test which is not the moment of the week but embellished -- don't forget Alan Branch passed him. Less worried about Alan Branch but. Well you know he. I don't know -- forget about this these sacks a bunch of football quarterback threw. There was other. Stuff that was kind of off the field that didn't involve games. Comments from Tony Dungy said that he would not have drafted Michael slam because he would have been too much of a distraction. And it's remarkably similar to what TV executives said at the 1966. About the man who wanted to broadcast NFL games and coverage who looked like Tony country. But maybe just as relevant the micro. Tony Dungy just admitted that Tony Dungy wouldn't be as skilled enough coach. To do with the distraction of doing the right thing. Ray Rice not being talked about as a distraction by way. Well not only not a distraction but how about John Harbaugh is quote. It's no big deal I -- he wasn't it didn't need -- didn't know that -- did I know that he meant it shall be guilty he's gonna be gone out right he kind of just. -- and office if I get I heard I I heard that some ideas for them like. I already did that but he didn't I know he meant it as us not having read -- for two games is no big deal -- trying to make it well I seriously. Here will be please promise me this hour that win comes back he scores a touchdown. And announcer says that he is redeeming himself. Or redemption story that we will make that the moment the week does that -- and that is going to -- That -- -- an NFL -- -- ESPN. They will talk about Ray Rice redeeming himself for all he's gone 39 don't make it simply a victim you know -- I don't. After it happened when Ben Roethlisberger. Finally got more games than Ray -- because one. Yet multiple incidents for one thing I guess that's -- thing maybe that is it yet multiply and same sort of violence toward women. Wasn't that -- -- -- to miss that many did anyway we've gone for awhile. Yeah John Bon Jovi I think the today's -- can look at that it's doing. Yeah I'm buying -- well we do we do about your -- you'll be recovered that would commit the hockey. I thought that was how was pronounced. Apparently now guys I know this to you by surprise you guys human flabbergasted today might not have been telling us the truth about outlined those statements are on. Well it does not help them in and ended it the first real sign that they've -- and to at least made some initial plans. And and feasibility study about a potential site in Toronto. -- It's a good buddy Jalalabad Associated Press. Every job he's done a great he's been all over the -- a great -- I was laughing at the -- -- people keep -- -- c'mon. They bodily Roethlisberger got six games it was cut to four. Right right got it right for good behavior something. There was some on some golf. This week. And net tiger played very badly let someone else the next tiger. Maybe I don't know Rory McIlroy had a great little thing at the open championship British Open open and not anomalies. I've got a big team over there my friends of bound lane. This is actually the first midget and my. Mother has been out -- I've won some on this -- created. Mom -- this one's for you McIlroy played extremely well hit the ball slightly harder farther than. Howard Simon did at the WGR golf tournament that little bit. We don't have any highlights from that unfortunately. Yeah we don't have any audio of the like four yard I shot did miss a thirty foot putt live on the air with a bit. He actually he missed -- I have no idea how much he missed it by because it was radio golf it was. Okay use -- went. And the Miller -- moment of the week comes via cell -- -- and self bodies looking at right my -- their best. This thing. And training camp Sammy Watkins. A nice little sports catch he fell down now sell before I played a highlight of that if you want to. Those -- guy. Real quickly so the guys go from one field the other your bank can't you know what I'm talking about. The quarterbacks and receivers I love watching them you know sent coached quarterbacks and stuff like that I like watching the individual drills Lotta times more than it like watching the team stuff. Cycle over to watch it there's only about five or six of the media members there and I thought to myself you know what fans would like it but he's -- they catch from Sammy Watkins said here -- coming in your living room. They're running corner routes at me I couldn't get one I tried to set a record that I moved over in the back of the end -- when their post routes and get one. I finally go back and said okay this drill is over soon I just better get wanna I wanna do this and as luck would have it. Right time right place steady hand I get down -- one he started binding. And it happened start -- catch. The catch it was amazing. And by the public and the play by play of the catch actually amazingly we had a broadcaster I -- Driven a grand total of zero yards and -- didn't -- the ball down the five yard line. Okay you're no manual back row and then they want didn't fall down now rate jumped back up -- make the one hand gets. And I guess that was such. A lot lot lot I thought I thought I'd. The -- yet nobody regarded but clearly got in September. You would happily comedy true actual tweets and FaceBook posts I'm sure you do -- 20 yes we got that -- that exactly being serious. -- un believable by the way so. My name was on sports center they showed they spell my -- -- -- right about that comment that -- handle my mom actually sought in Florida on the local news is -- -- from magic audience get to complain that they had the name rundown now she's on the local news and poor child and they said it and they said hey Sammy is from south Fort Myers high school. And she lives down that area they said. Look what happened -- practice today she's like oh my god. Like wait -- salt cup pot she dragged me. Fifth. So -- dumber did you guys met at a penny for every time the open man extremely. -- -- -- -- -- uniform better than than than I wouldn't and but you know I say that because. I don't think I've ever really appreciated you know the maturity of the kids and wanna think when you look at that then you can understand why -- what is. And that is the Miller Lite moment of the week Sammy Watkins falling down and Mecca -- one and catch -- middle -- really brought you by Miller -- it's not just a good time it's Miller time coming over the next hour. We will chat with Jarrett bell from the USA today he was it -- Campbell talking about his observations from bills camp and Andre -- to -- one of the voters in this for the Pro Football Hall of Fame now what do you got coming up in the next.
