"The bills still have to find a way to score points the defense has been great most of the time the offenses leg behind on the clock is ticking White House right there on the table but the bills have to find a playoff caliber offense approach sooner or later good afternoon welcome the newer field in orchard park welcome to the north west bank broadcast booth with the bills and Washington John Murphy and Eric what get ready for kick out between the bills in Washington north west bank increasing the value of you Erica fact prices yet the bills are five in two after all but you got to find a way to just simply put more points on the scoreboard don't they absolutely you can't waste this absolute absolutely a lead defense no they're they're still you know they struggle last week they give up thirty one points at home to the eagles are still third in the NFL in scoring defense this defense is excellent and you can't waste of the bills currently sitting twenty fourth in the league in scoring right now on offense but but to me it's not that far off of where they need to be it's cutting down on the penalties cut down the turnovers make a couple big plays a game and now you're right the middle of the pack and that's that's probably all they need to be to to have a really good season finishing it out course they had nine new starters on offense this year a new addition to these first seven games they've worked in Tyler Kroft Duke Williams a waited for Devon single there to get back in the lineup they've had Robert foster in and out of the lineup but to me the most important thing they can do is to get the offense is on track is to get Johnny challenges simply playing better than he has a really believe that yeah and he's got to play better it in I think that comes with continuity you bring Tyler Kroft back in the mix and he's a great playmaker had a couple great catches last week but he now he needs to get on the same page with him and then they bring to Williams up up the practice squad mackenzie's down last week they bring robber foster and there's just a lot of moving parts on offense for them and with all the new starters if it was going to take time this year but we're ready it's game may ready now let's get on the same page we we know our strength we know our weaknesses at this point and in the great news is he has got a great relationship going John Brown yeah Hey I on the other side of the field a rookie quarterback a raw rookie making his first NFL starting at fourteen starts at Ohio state a jet to starting this week it's been tough for doing Haskins in a couple of appearance it could get even tougher today I would think it would it it it it really could because the bills pass defense is absolutely excellent but we do waive Haskins's entered the game this year he's enter two games he has zero touchdowns four interceptions but each time that into those games they were down multiple scores of both those games so he's trying to make plays and he's probably doing stuff out of the normal realm of what he would do starting a game at zero zero like you will today in orchard park he also comes in today with the Redskins having a one in seven record so there's not a whole lot of pressure on him he could cut it loose he can come in it you know what if they drop one today they were a double digit underdog there's not a lot of pressure on him that scares me a touch because he can come out and play loose but I but I truly think to protect the rookie quarterback bill Callahan the head coach for the Redskins who comes in with Jay Gruden fired I think he will try to keep the ball on the ground I due to a final game of a three game homestand for buffalo here Eric and they have to cash in on home field advantage you know you saw the stats I'm sure that the road teams have won more than all teams this year but right here in orchard park I believe the bills have one of the last few remaining legitimate fears home field advantage is that gonna take advantage of that today they do it comes in a couple different forms a comes in the form of the crowd this crowd has been absolutely electric all season this year and I expected to be electric again today it also comes with conditions yeah.

"And they, you know, work on the finer points of his route running and stuff chant hold did a lot of that with him last year. Now, he's his receivers coach. So I think that blend will be a good one for the guys that were here last year, they know coach hall, so that'll help I really think that he can really take the cover off his production this year, if he sticks by what got him to where he was at the end Alassio. It'd be a tremendous best case scenario for the bills at wide receiver. I will tell you what I think anyway. And I you know after the draft a week ago. I was thinking, hey, you know, where's the number one wide receiver? They didn't pick one at all. I regret that. I wish he would have done some how about if Robert Foster develops maybe a little bit more this year and down into the future as a number one NFL wide receiver. He's got the physical skills. The speed. He's decent size. Right. I think he'd learned a lot from his rookie year. You know, I'm gonna make I didn't get to do something here that I don't like when callers to it. But I'm going to compare them to one of the time bills greats. Andre Reid was a fourth round pick. He was not the complete package. He got better. Every I said this all the time every year Andre Reid came back to training camp. Every summer he was a better player than when he left what if that starts to happen with Robert fos that would be great. And I think it will. But that would be the absolute best case scenario. That's what everybody's hoping for. Because if he does based on the skill set that he possesses which is why he got a chance in the NFL in the first. Place right, then. Yes. I mean, I don't wanna use the cliche the sky cliche. But he should be in ascending player. I don't think there's any question about that. I think if there's one thing that he's got develop in his game. It's route savvy, and that comes through repetition and through experience a lot of times, you get to know the league a little bit better. You get to know the Cornerbacks. You're going against what does this guy. You know, you you watch film to get a better read on how you can set a cornerback up that that is all go that all goes toward your route savvy as a as a wide receiver in this league. You get to know your quarterback better. Well that too that too. And you also have veterans in the room now who can kinda council you on that a little bit. Like, oh, I've played against this guy. Fifteen times you wanna do this on him. When you're when you're giving them a a double move. You know, this is how you set them up. Those are the kinds of things that hopefully he will be able to incorporate into his game to make him. A more consistent receiver down in in down out series series out to be clear. I'm not predicting that will happen. I'm saying that would be a tremendous bonus. If Robert Foster becoming gravy for sure. Yeah. That'd be amazing. We're gonna take a break talking about two topics which NFL team other than the bills if you would one the off season number two which second-year player on the buffalo roster is ready to make a big jump up aside from Josh Allen..

"Ally manning. So if you've got Dell Beckham in a fantasy league or you got bigger Mayfield. You gotta like this move a lot a few times if you've got saquon Barkley. I'd be nervous. I think Jarvis Landry owners should be a little nervous too. Yeah. Here's a question. Should I have girly? Should. I be nervous. Yes. New York's rightous what absolutely should be nervous like he has gone from like the number one or two fantasy player to what do I do? Right. He was a fantasy hall of Famer he's a fantasy mount Rushmore guy. He was twenty five points a week. And then it all went downhill and now we might have arthritis in the knee. Do I try to trade him in my league? I mean, you could get some that. You're not gonna get nearly the value for him at this. Somebody in my league doesn't always got arthritis of the maybe that's true. Maybe I will try. I would try try to trade them. Yeah. I mean, it could be that could be bad news bears for my team. He's my my stud. Let's rank the bills fantasy options at this point. Josh Allen one. He's won because of his running in touchdowns. Right. I honestly thought about is the tough part about being in a fantasy league in also being on the radio when these people can listen, I thought, you know, what maybe I should try and go get Alan because from a fantasy standpoint he he puts up the numbers with the running in the running touchdowns in the rushing yards. But he's gonna average sixty yards rushing a game. That's like a free touchdown. Absolutely. And I went through this at the end of the year last year I picked up Josh Allen as I need a quarterback. And then when he was scoring touchdowns. I'm like I got to play the sky because I'm getting six points free every week. It seems like the scoring yet. Touchdown. He's and he worked out for me. Number two. I still think. Robert Foster because of yards touchdowns. But Cole Bazeley may be the most targeted receiver on this team by the end of the year. If you're in a PR, maybe. Yeah. So if you're MPR maybe called veasley, but I still think Robert Foster gives you because of the big playability he could just suddenly have a five catches hundred and thirty four yard touchdown game. Right. Yeah. Maybe the bills defense you might want them. I don't know if you have a legal defenses. I've, but you gotta still now you gotta think about John Brown. You gotta think about you know, where they are. I think at least now because going into just has a few weeks ago. You're like yes, Josh Allen, Robert Foster now, at least you have options. Now, maybe you know, shady you would still draft shady at someone. I think but. A texter writes in that we're very bad interpreting stats. All right. I guess completion. Jen twenty plus yard throws. I don't know. Hi to me. But I don't know because I send your complaints on Mike Renner. A pro football focus says that eight oh three zero five fifty one eight eight five fifty to five fifty if you'd like to join us. It is game night for the sabres sabres and penguins. Lot of Pittsburgh fans in the building. I would imagine right. Yes. Hey, so there's a there's a radio guy friend of mine I've had on the on the air. And actually, I have never met him. But Paul goes by boy green twenty-five big jets fan. He hosts out in Syracuse on the score twelve sixty and I've gone on his show couple times several times he's come on here. And one time I was at the combine last week. Two weeks ago? Any text me says, hey, can I get you on the show today? And I said, hey, I can't I'm going to be flying back. I have to leave because we have a roast going on back in buffalo. And he texted me back. And he said save me some meat. I thought you said save me some me pigro. And I and I'm thinking, okay. And I thought I thought for a minute does he really not know what a means? And I said, no, he probably means because he thinks there's going to be a nice spread their right? But then last night, he literally did he tweeted about how he felt like like an idiot that he literally thought that I meant that I was going to someplace where there's going to be meet. And then he said, I had no idea. Here's this tweet. I was texting with south sports when he was at the NFL combine to come on my radio show. And he said sorry, I can't I've gotta head back to buffalo for a roast. I'm mmediately reply. Save me a slice what he wrote? Okay. Which I soon realized it wasn't that kind of roast. And the only reason he found out Jeremy because I posted pictures of the of the stuff. The auction of The Danny gear roast, and he's like, oh, that's what he meant tonight. You ever been to pig roast or like any sort of major said like Viking meal? That really. Seen something. I have never really been an even I lived in the south where they're more common. But no. I think the only one I went to was it up paintball place where you bust in the bus full of people and played paintball and afterwards a pig pig roast about it. I've never been to meet raffle. But they're all the rage. I hear people swear by people are telling me meat raffles are tons of fun. So I gotta get myself to a meat raffle at some point people like asking about like the those roster, and you know, what's going to happen. And Ben tweets in what are the chances the bills keep MacKenzie? Now, they signed all these guys look they get ninety players injuries happened. You're going to go to camp guys get hurt. Like, I have no idea until we know what happens a training camp. So it's not a cop out. But these guys are on the roster. Now, they're going to go to training camp. They're gonna fight for spots. Guys are going to have some injuries and get banged up. And we're going to see where they fit. So I I just think going down that road is way too premature just like, oh, by the way, all the mock drafts that everyone did over the last three weeks and before free agency began and now suddenly it's like, oh now they don't need. Address that spot. So I think I really don't need to do that guy there with the mock draft that others still fun and exciting. But this is why do not do any mock drafts before free agency. I never have. Free agency ends when when can we never know I know that dust settlers? But when it's definitely not over yet. We know there are visits and there are players. There's still some guys in the top one hundred from pro football talker, NFL dot com. When would you say the significant signings are over as I think it's in a week? In by Monday. Are we are we to the when does dust settlers probably by the end of this weekend? Yeah. Probably by the end of this weekend. I think teams wanna get moving on to the draft. They wanna kinda get their guys in. I wanna get moving on to the draft focused on getting their visits in. And then once the draft happens, then there's another wave of okay, we don't need this guy. He might release somebody and then of course, June first right guys get released maybe after June first. But I think for what your purposes what you're asking. Jeremy by the end of this weekend. I think most of the guys out there. We'll probably have found homes. You might be a guy or two straggling around waiting for something to happen. Some guys some guys didn't get in early. And now, they're like, okay. I'm going to wait until the summer. I'm going to wait until after the draft. No, wait till after June first to find someone right? I just want to know if there's a, and my mom is listening and said you at a pig roast when we were in Hawaii. Wow. I was. Yes, it was. And this was a this had to be in nineteen ninety seven. I believe would have been right around there. So there's a while ago over twenty years ago, but went to Hawaii did a cruise at night, the boat would sail in in the morning, you'd be on a different island was pretty cool snorkeling at Hummel wannabe. I believe it's called was one of the most incredible things I've ever done seeing the colors of the fish down there. But thanks mom. You're right. You were at a pig roast when we were in Hawaii. There you go. She remembers that Mary good extent of sports on the way, we will wrap things up. Get you off for the instigators. I'm looking right now, I might have something for you here. Oh, yeah.

"Didn't trust him as a quarterback when he was coming out. He was talented. He's also injury proud, and they didn't drop them. So and a lot of people said he was blackballed. And that's what happened like the league. Just didn't trust him at all. They thought that he was. Over his baseball contract. And so they blackball them. So there's a lot of background here. There's still being unpacked. Trevor I actually wrote a story about that dot com. The situation over the draft you can find. But he was pretty it's pretty fascinating. How he's in such a similar situation in some ways to his dad as a player and as a situation, and I think that column or yes, more talented and kind of more ready for quarterback of his nature. I think to be successful. But at the same time, it's really hard for that put so much on the quarterbacks play to trust the guy who is is one year played against big twelve defensive. There's all those concerns. But also we're talking about a guy who has not committed the game of football. And we're a couple of months from the draft and we're like a week from the combat and he never even announced that he was going to participate. So it has been a very weird situation. I I've heard from his teammates at doctor Ben powers when I was down at the senior bowl. He said tomor instead of Puerto they've got lots of conversations about it. Them he likes football more. But it seems like right now they're trying to get the most financially out of the situation. I think Gatorade contract that they signed makes he has to do interviews at these spots. That's why he was on the floor on with Dan, Patrick. And so yes. These interviews and clearly wasn't prepared for them. And it was almost like he's doing it. Just to do it to get the payouts that things are going to question that there's just a lot going on the situation, and it's just too too much smoke for teams to be trying to touch it. In the first round interesting stuff right there from John Leonard here, he is on the western hotline on WGN. All right. So the areas where the bills do need to concentrate wide receiver skill guys for Josh Allen and protection upfront. We've heard so much about this dropping so defensive heavily heavy and there are some offense tackles up top. But is there anyone that's worth the number nine pick? And how how many can you let go by before you say, we can't take an offensive tackle at number nine. I don't think you can go buy if that's the biggest need going into the draft. You gotta take one. I mean, it's a good class. No question. Like, we still get a good player later. It's possible without the portfolio, but it's such a position of value. You know what? I mean. I just think you have to prioritize it. I'm not in love with the cornerback classes and people said, you know, maybe the Levi wall thing isn't sustainable, and we need a corner. Like, I think that's good reason. I think it would be I would be surprised anyway, if we've also like super sustainable, so maybe it's a position you consider. But at the same time, it's not a great quarterback class. And you need a really good player without pick. If you're buffalo like moved around a bunks last year, they lost a couple of picks in the process. That's okay. If you hit on you hit on tomato like you can live with that. I think that's fine. But you have to hit on those. This is the first pick for a team that really needs a good player. Like, I don't know that you can reach for a position to meet and to me tackles on one of the best position groups in this class were cornerback isn't, and I think that you. Consider some other positions. Obviously everybody speak PK back out from wide receiver to the bills to I would say wide receiver super deep and that would be maybe a little bit early to start the runoff receivers. Not that they couldn't get a good player though. They definitely could. But it's easier to fill out the wide receiver position. Look Robert Foster younger to fill that out later rounds than it is offense to me if that's the big need for buffalo coming in the draft. I just think that has to be the top priority. And I think absolutely Donna Williams is worth I in my opinion to one Taylor from Florida is a natural, right? Tackle played. Right. Tackle too early in his Alabama career. So he'll keep that in mind too that he was very good there. I think he can play. Either side doin Taylor played right? Tackle at Florida. He played left tackle for two games. But even really a three year starter at right tackle for Florida. I've been highly highly impressive this past season. He might be the best tackling this class, and he is really really really talented. So he's one name. I consider if you wait I think don't rise from Kansas state is a really good player. I. I really do think he needs a shot at tackle. He's tape is too. Good. A tackle. He was really good at the senior. Boy, totally shut down Montas sweat this past year when they played, you know, I know playing in the big twelve you don't get to see a lot of great pass rusher. So when he played Montas and shot him down on the season. I thought that was really big for his stock. And then also when they played in the senior bowl and the game face some Helen and ride down again. So to me, I think that that he deserves the Sean without position he'll be a great interior player. If he is in a great tackle. I think they're options in this class. There's no doubt about that. But to me, you're trying to get the best tackle in the draft early in the in the top ten so I'm going for that. And I'm trying to get that level player if I'm the Buffalo Bills. And I think honestly with all the needed edge probably a couple and ahead of them. There's a good chance about tackling the draft is there and available for them. I'm assuming you're going to say there's no wide receiver. That's really worth the number nine pick. But if so let me know. But after that, how do you prioritize these guys like where do you rank them? Yeah. I think there is. I mean, I think that unless the came back half it's all about crossing a riskier pick to me, but his Twitter. Unbelievable. I mean as long speed, I think it size p plays or crazy. You can do things after the catch. And he just could have a special type of feeling you have to accept the fact that with some of these picks you up to what are you willing to risk on? Because a lot of these guys are be, but you need that to pay off. Right. So I mean like for decay Metcalf situation. You're not worried about him in terms of his work ethic. Everybody raves about that. No worrying about size is to them or anything like that. Like, you're just worried about the developing the rest of the skill set right here at the ability, you do it. You just worried about developing the rest of the skills that will put the work in he's high character. He's got all the traits that you want to me. Those are the kind of guys that you bet on if he checked out in the interview process. Those are the kind of guy wearing green William pizza risks because the super talent. But also there's effort concerns at times, and you know, he has gone into you know, he can just be I think sometimes immature and has concerned teams a little bit. How great if an athlete is super high ceiling his technique didn't really come along. So I think that there's more concerns there is a more risky, and you know, those are the kind of guys I would be hesitant to take a risk or high pick. But you know, it's the whole soul. The Thomas thing. Some of those guys worked out someone's said, absolutely everything a player hasn't worked out. So far mean he was the forty four packets us athletic. Character grade school is everything more hard working all about football great frame like production at Stanford as last year. It was crazy. Just hasn't worked out yet. So I think that's the rest that's the worst case scenario, but those are the guys bet on sometimes you get burnt to me Metcalf is one of those types of guys. But the biggest thing is I think later in the grass you can still get good receivers. Like, I think Calvin Harman's Activa player. I think he's Brown at some obviously not on buffalo. Given the fact that he's somewhat similar to Robert Foster. But still even if it isn't buffalo. He asked him, you know, there's a lotta guys with that throughout the second third round that add something to the team. Is there a clear obvious hill Calvin Johnson type number one receiver Michael Thomas like threw it over wonder fever? I don't know if I would go that far, but it's such a good receiver classes such a deep perceiver class. That's why I would say maybe I don't prioritize it or that early in the draft. The bills are going to have to do something up front to help them out on the defensive side of the ball because they do a shock loss and entering the finally risk contract. I don't know if they're going to pick up the fifth year option. Jerry Hughes entering the final year of his contract. He's going to be thirty one years old thirty. Years old next year. They did lose Kyle Williams out of the top group of guys. And there are a lot of really good edge rushers and interior guys. Who would have the best chance to maybe fall could add Oliver fall there could Josh Allen fall. There could Brian burns fall there at number nine who would have the best shot to fall where you'd say if he does run the card up, but yes, he might be there. I don't think it's Delasalle and based on the buzzer era. But I really do think that Josh Allen Brian burrow, politer similar type players in the way that. On on their tape. Honestly, I think the Columbine is gonna break them up for me. The NFL seems from everything we've heard pretty locked in on. Josh Allen is the top guy. And that grew I think there's concerns about burns weighing polite. Swaying maybe flights character a little bit. Although I think he plays really really hard on the field on a state. So that's probably the story with all those guys is that my guess would be burns employed right now a decent chance of being available there. Cleveland feral, however is probably four of the Sean McDermott type of our going to gas it kind of what fits for him. You know, I just think over I don't join us isn't the biggest edge. But his guys kind of feels like way over the years have always been bigger defensive events. You know? So maybe it's more of a Cleveland feral type of fit. This is funny though because buffalo clearly needs edge pass rusher. Help in the vast majority of NFL teams that clearly need pass rush out. We mocked them an edge rusher because it's such an important thing after quarter back we're giving you that you need an, Ed. We're giving you that nobody gets buffalo and watch jobs. Nobody talks about it. You know, it's always there's always came back out for a tackle like, and I get that. Like, both those are those are big needs. And I think that that's true. But I I I kind of like kind of agree with what you're saying is that I am all about taking the taco there. But I do think that passers has to be addressed for this team in some way, shape or form. And I know it may not be to the level that some other defenses prioritize it, but you can't go like shock off careless Asser like you can't go into next season expecting him to suddenly Ross. The pastor Lorenzo zander's presence alleviate some of that because he is such a diverse player. But at the same time like that's going to be position in need. Like, if it isn't this year, if it isn't clear this year will be down the road. So Wendy, you prioritize the decently Deeb edge.

"Be happy with most are seeing nine and seven others just strictly saying playoffs. Couple of ten in. Sixers one guy seeing eight Nate. Mike on Twitter says Nate I feel like most people would be disappointed with eight Nate though. Let me think let's go to Jonathan Alden. You're on the nightcap, it's up UpJohn. Hey, Joe, stay scans by two. You might hurt in my head. My heart is saying last year, we ended the longest as a plow bay four sports. So my heart saying take the next step and our playoff wins route. Or and we end our playoff touchdowns out. What might had realistically speaking this apply be a nine or ten team that might need a little help getting into playoff. I think what the playoffs ideal feel. So so realistically I'd say nine or I'd say nighttime win. All right. Jeff, thanks for the call. Yeah. Neither ten wins is about where I'm at said Tannen, Twitter, maybe backing off that a little bit saying nine, but I think it's realistic. I think it's realistic that they could. They could be a by next year. Absolutely. And I think maybe we should start to expect that that's going to happen. Because at some point you've got to do it at some point. You've got expect to jump me going through this with the sabres the past couple of years when is the jump coming? When is the jump coming and this year, it's like all right finally hits here. And now they're coming back down to earth again. So like now what our expectations for the sabres is the playoffs is it? I don't know. Getting back into the top three for the bills. I think. Depending on what Allen looks like next year Suming years and plateau, and he progresses, and you've got better pieces around him mean, he should get better. Right. There's no way that the surrounding towns can be as bad as it was this year. Especially at the beginning of the year when he's trying to throw it Andre homes. Kelvin Benjamin who take an hour to get into the routes. Let's look through some of the starters who's gonna change. That's kinda the thing. I was thinking of earlier. 'cause defense. I don't think there's I'm not gonna sit here and say anybody right now, obviously Kyle Williams gonna is retired. But maybe they do that in house, maybe that's Harrison Phillips, maybe that's Jordan Phillips. Maybe it's a combination of both. I think that you could absolutely fill that that role in house and then on the offense. That's where the most turnover comes into me when I'm looking at it right now, one wide receiver spot probably is changed when it comes to starters. And that's the top two as of right now. And you've got Jones your Robert Foster. Those are starting to receivers at the end of the year. I like Robert Foster right now Jones had a great game against Miami. And the year and he had better stats throughout the season. But the way foster came along throughout the season with his speed his size. He's got more physical tools to me than Jones has he seems like a more dynamic player. I'd like to see him be the starting outside receiver opposite of somebody else. I think that's one spot you need a change put Zeke Jones in the slot. And kind of make him the intermediate route guy Seaview can go find another really good outside receiver that you can put opposite of Robert Foster. And I think that's one of the positions that changes. I think Zeke Jones is starting wide receiver. I don't need that to happen. I need one of that. One of those guys though to kind of be put a one peg lower. Offense line. I wrote down three names. Maybe maybe four, but it seems like why it powered by most accounts, pretty good. For the limited action. He played in his rookie year. Ryan ROY slash Russell boat. You gotta get a new center in here. Our own Nick eerie WJR on Twitter earlier, he ranked his biggest need to the bills in the off season. He ranked center number one. They definitely got to get better at center right guard. I think you need a new you need a replacement for John Miller, you need a new starting right guard. And I think you need a new starting right? Tackle I think Jordan mills came along a little bit throughout his bills career. But. Pass protection. I mean, two years in a row now, I've watched the cover one guys and others on Twitter. Posting yards per pass posting the film or the all twenty two. Version of the place and time after time it seems like Jordan mills gets beat by edge rusher with speed and he's got a quarterback that is able to escape it with their mobility. I think maybe he's been bailed out a little bit in the past couple of years with that. Now like you said, I think he's gotten better than the train wreck. He was at the beginning of his bills career. But I think I'd like to see better in new right tackle in here as well. Maybe that's even Dawkins. I mean, they get the opportunity like that would probably be the draft. Yeah. Hey, Joe Williams, for example, by the happened put Dawkins at right tackle that could be the same. By the way. There's a reason I sprinkled the name Connor McGovern in there. In the updates today was to get a familiar name for a guy who could play center or guard never heard of him before my life. What's his name Connor McGovern Penn State, and he was a guy who was a preseason favorite for you know, a Remington award, which is what is the top center. He's a guy that you know, he has some high tomb. I've got a couple of a couple of names for each for each position here wide receiver. Like, I said I'm looking for an outside receiver. What's funny about free agency? It seems like in the way I did it on Spacek who does the who has a list you can you can get a list of the free agents this year. And then you sort it by I sorted by most receptions as pass here that are going to be free agents. And it's like the top five guys are all slot receivers. Adam Humphreys, number one had seventy six catches. He's a free agent. Golden Tate Cyrus every he'll be free agent. Larry Fitzgerald's, a free agent. But I don't think he's playing anywhere other than Arizona. Colby easily slot receiver Chester Rogers for indie slot receiver. And then you're getting the like the Robby Anderson's of the world. Devin funchess to just everyone keeps saying he's gonna end up a Bill kind of hope that doesn't happen. He's not. I wouldn't be totally against it. I think he's a good player think you'd be an upgrade. But I think I'd want to do better than Devin funchess there. John Brown's gonna be free agent. I like the idea of him. He's just a burner. I like the draft for receiver more starting to really get into some of these receiver prospects, and I'm starting to really like the idea of a couple of them. I don't know if you would pick them at nine probably seems a little high, but I've seen some mock drafts taking these guys decay Metcalf from ole miss the guy who I really wanted. And I'm very happy declared for the draft today marquees Hollywood Brown from Oklahoma super fast. I again, I don't think you would be. I don't know if you necessarily take him a nine. CBS sports, for instance, is the site. I got pulled up for the rankings here. They have him as the thirty one thirty first ranked prospect. But I would love to end up with him. He's. I just got wheels wheels upon wheels, and you can get that other places. I just much John Brown who's going to be a free agent. Desha Jackson seems like they're gonna move on from him in Tampa. And he wants out of there. So maybe you could even do that. But I love the idea of getting one of these receivers in the draft the top two receivers, by the way are both from ole miss. It's interesting. When looking at center, Derek just mentioned the guy from Penn State? What's his name again Connor McGovern Connor McGovern CBS has ranked as the number one center. There is a couple other options tight on. Everyone's talking about this being a really deep tight end class. Noah font, from Iowa is the top guy, there is someone from Missouri. There's no chance pronounce this guy's name on the first try Albert Oku. Boom. How to do? Sure. Cadence. Smith from Stanford is highly ranked your to everyone's talking about this being detained glass. And that's that's my final name here on the list of a starter thing needs to change. And I think we can all get bored with this. I've been on this train. Almost since the first couple of games. I saw him plays Bill. I've never been a Charles clay fan. I think he's a okay tighten those being paid top five money because the bills had to do that since he was restricted free agent from division rival and that needs to get better next year, you need a they need to get better tight on just plain and simple. And I think they're going to do that. I mean, he was a healthy scratch week sixteen that should say something, and I like Croom, but not as my starting tight on new music averted wide receiver doesn't seem like they trust him a whole lot blocking yet. So I'd like to see them do something a tight end that probably wouldn't be for almost. I actually probably almost for sure would not be a first round pick. But maybe no fine looking around to or maybe you get one of these other guys in Brown too. Draft. Obviously, he's always the way you wanna go tight end in free agency your options there, you're looking at Tyler offered who just cannot stay healthy. I mean, he's a good talent. Very good pass catcher. He's only twenty eight but just cannot stay on the field. You're on talk, bad luck. Man. That is. Yes, got it. I think he's sixty five percent of the games of his career something crazy like that. And his latest one. It's like it's just a freak accident that someone falls in his leg. Right. Destroying it? I think when you just your injury prone. I think you just injury-prone when your phone things just happen. And it's not his fault. It's just things happen other options, they could go for the bills gopher and free and see the replace Charles clay, the when sorting by receptions, Jared cook is the top guy. He had a really good year in Oakland. He's a little bit older though, thirty two he'd nine hundred yards and six touchdowns. Great season. CJ Ozama had forty three catches for the Bengals he actually replaced. I for I would tend to think the Bengals try and. And resign him. He's only twenty six he seems pretty good. But if he were to make it to the open market, I'd like to see us see the bills grab him rookie seals Jones doesn't really I think fit as you're starting tight end over Jason Croom because like Jason a converted wide receiver, then he's had problems blocking. But he's only twenty four years old, and he's got some decent speed. So that's another option Jesse James from Pittsburgh. Jeff swain. Dallas started some games for them this year. Kinda Benjamin Watson, I think. He's retiring. He's thirty eight so tight ends not super deepen agency. But I think it's actually got better options there than than you might have it wide receiver. So it's just kind of a couple names you could be looking at offense of line. I'm not going to be able to. Discern who's great. And who's not other than just looking at games started. I mean, if the bills wanna go big money. They could do that. Right. Can they do that in free agency? Ryan Kalil, the former panther.

"Week around the league people are going. Hey, what's up with Brady? Yeah. So should I be shocked if they beat the patriots today? I would say, no, I'm picking them to win are you? Okay. It's not doing that. I am. I think it'll be a close game. But it's hard for me to actually pick Brady to lose today to the Bill. This is one of those weeks because everyone's talking in whispering about the cracks in the foundation the crumbling. That's beginning to happen. And usually, that's right. When the patriots he puts, correct. The score to prove a point. That's correct. Okay. And and luckily, and I was talking we were Jerry. Now, we're talking about. Luckily, Rex's and around still because they for whatever reason they wanted to embarrass racks every time they got an a match up with him. And they just would pass until the very last whistle. Remember the game here. Rex's first game patriots. When they were throwing the ball in the fourth quarter with like a three touchdown, correct? And they almost got the bills back in the game. Because they kept throwing. That's right. No. But you know, what I think is interesting about this game is thirteen and a half point favorites. The patriots are ninety three percent of the money in Vegas. And the sports book is on the patriots ninety three percent of people are saying. Yup. Gimme the thirteen and a half points. I'm calling you people crazy. Even if they don't win outright. Yeah. That Monday's game. Monday night game could have gone a lot of ways had they just had any sense of offense. Correct. Remember in that game? The bills never got deeper than the patriots thirty yard line. That's pretty darn bag. That's bad. But you held them. It didn't even shut down until that fourth quarter. And it was a pick six they got they got a rushing touchdown and a picks in the game. And then that was really the end of that game, right but up until that point because if twenty five cents. I mean, I'm saying give me that thirteen and a half points spread all day. I will I will bet against the patriots. And that one hundred percent of the time phone lines are open. I'll just keep it real easy today. Everybody's in Christmas mode. I'm not saying you're lacking focus on a bills game day. But let's face it. We're all thinking about having a day off in the holiday eight. Oh, three. Oh, five fifty. What are you? What are your what are you expecting today from the bills and the patriots in this game? That's a nice wide open question up to your interpretation. And I don't know wrong answer today. I as I said, I I still be surprised if they won. But they're years we go in right? I go into a patriots game and go what's the point? Why am I watching? Okay. Let's let the bloodletting begin. And if they won I'd be shocked because of the finger quotes struggles of the patriots offense. And they'll keep in mind. They got a little bit of Ben Rothlisberger going. You know, the the stat unbanned about home. Ben Bowman the patriots offense is doing that this season. Their offense is so much better at. Home than it is when it goes on the road. But with all the talk about their offense with Josh Gordon being suspended this wing with people talking about gronkowski is broken down. You can't get separation. The bills defense has been playing well this season. The bills defense did a very good job against Brady. The first time around Alan doesn't play in the first matchup. It's Derek Anderson. The patriots run defense has been just terrible for the last month. I just put them all together and say, I think they can give them a game today. Maybe you know, maybe they somehow win. But I really don't think this is going to be one of those Brady just runs roughshod over the bills. You put your hands over your eyes midway through the second quarter is an interesting in and out in this game in Josh Allen in I would say probably Robert Foster Isiah McKenzie. I was talked to about this is if you're Bill Belichick, do you even turn on the week eight film, if you're the defense looking how to defend us up. Could it be any different? Right. So just that in itself, but you do on defense is you you put in Josh offensively. Isiah McKenzie Robert Foster, and you take out Matt Milano and Taryn Johnson. Who were I think integral parts to stopping or stifling that patriots offense in their first meeting. So it'll be interesting to the bills have a better outpour of offense this week. And is this more of an offense verse offense battle rather? You know, the patriots offense I the bills defense because in that first matchup. Matt Milano was the reason why rob gronkowski only had three catches on a targets. Yeah. He was a non factor. You wasn't on Dr scalea. And and and and to me, look, this is I think this is the most scrutiny if this is the proper way to phrase this. This is the most scrutiny will have watching Tom Brady. It's the closest I'm going to watch every move from Tom Brady and a game against the bills because we're all sitting here talking about these last couple of weeks. Now, I didn't see let's see two weeks ago would have been the. Crazy game in Miami. They did put up thirty three hundred thirty four yards three touchdown. I think and by the way Brady did throw for three hundred against the bills. The only three hundred have give up all year to this guy. But it's funny Nate, you know, you read the the New England papers we had a guest on the other day on our show from New England. And you are hearing. I think this is what it boils down to in a nutshell if you really wanna simplify it into one phrase one-sentence, Tom Brady can't cure all the ills anymore of the New England Patriots. It isn't maybe as much as Brady's game has fallen off. It's just he used it didn't matter. Why whatever's tight ends offense of lines running back didn't matter this guy cured all of their problems singlehandedly. He still really really really good. But he's not at a level where he can just solve all of their problems as someone referred to him the great wart remover. He can't do that anymore. I think that. That doesn't mean necessarily he's done. But he's he's not at that greatest of all time level where you just say doesn't matter. Whatever else is wrong with this patriots team Brady still going to win. Yeah. You know? I think ultimately if he's going to play till he's forty five that it which God, I hope is a K more years, and I was talking to Jerry about this too. It's like would you take a bet right now knowing what we know where Tom Brady is right now, he's got four more years. He turned forty one in August. So that would mean next football season. He's forty two years. So that four more years of Tom Brady, would you take? Would you take the bat that he placed at least forty five now or that he maybe has one or two more years left? I think if they take the route of Patrick Mahomes, or they take the route of I dunno name another young quarterback. That's just got weapons galore all over. I mean, Matt Ryan's not young. But he's got tons of weapons say golf, but they've slipped off the last. A good example of having tons of weapons because you have a salary controlled quarterback. Tom Brady to be honest with you. He's what like the fifteenth or sixteenth ties paid quarterback in the league. He's almost like every year taking less and less. So that they can add more and more pieces around him. And yet this is probably one of the weakest patriots teams in the better part of a decade in terms of just overall talent defensively, they they've tried to take pieces off of other teams, Danny Shelton like some of these other guys from other teams that kinda flamed out thinking that Bill check was going to sprinkle the fairy dust and the bell bell check on them, and they were gonna turn into all pro players in. And it just hasn't worked out. They brought brought in the other mccourty, and he's been and you know, Stefan Gilmore has been has had a very good two years in New England. He's been I think Jodi Yossi said at this morning. Agreed. He hasn't been elite. But he's definitely a cornerback one. Like, he's he's a number one corner for your football team. I would think they'll put him on foster today. I saw a lot of things that he's going to be as Jones real. Yeah. Okay. On foster. Do you think about that? I don't know that I'm putting Stefan Gilmore on the speed of Robert Foster, Robert Costa, really has. I think he's starting to put some fear and defense Justice speed guy. He's other routes showing that I hate to receiver. But he's not just run down the field. And we'll throw you the deep ball. He can do other. He is shown some nuance in his route running some abilities to manipulate like leverage of defenders and things like that. You're right. Robert Robert Foster has has shown some nice qualities of a full round wide receiver. Not just a straight line. Go kind of guy. Listen is on MacKenzie showing the same thing. I think Denver didn't want to give him up. They promoted him to the active roster when the bills made a claim or tried to get him. The first time they tried to block the bills from getting him. And it just didn't work out where they couldn't block them forever because they just they didn't have room on the active roster from the head to many receivers. He's been a really really nice addition to this bills offense as well. Really? Everybody think that's why you say that if you just ignore the game. I mean, they have to now they just re signed the backup quarterback they brought in like five weeks ago to a two year extension after both quarterbacks that were on the roster. Besides Josh Allen are just jettison are gone, and you look the wide receiver position saying twelve I appreciate twelve or thirteen wide receivers in training camp. Three remain from training camp out of the twelve that were in training camp this year. Well, Malachi do pre some of the other guys that were here that were like maybe they'll make the roster. Brainer Riley, everyone's favorite, and what's the other guy that came in that left at the last two years got hurt last year in the preseason the wide receiver OB I'm drawing a blank, but every year he's almost he's that close to making the team, then he got cut this year and went to the Browns and then got hurt again. I don't know. I can't think of his name. I'll it'll it'll come to me when I'm driving home because that's that's usually what happened. Well, tweeted it right. Yeah. But it's it's been such an interesting turnover year because if you think about where this offense was like we were talking about it this morning. I mean, Stephen a Smith was talking about this bills team being the worst than the Owen sixteen Detroit Lions that they would be the worst team ever that was some of the narrative random, and that Alabama college teams would beat the bills now, they're not. And now they're five wins Lega after after the first three weeks their offense was historically Basturk. What it's gotten better and the defense except for you know, a couple of games at the beginning of the has been has been money the colts game too. I guess but defense has been very good this year. Right. So they're not. They're not. You know? That's why I say for me. I just if you look back the two of the three games since McDermott's become head coach the defense has played well against Brady. In fact, he's had no touchdown passes in two of the three games against the bills by Bill standards. That's a significant achievement then and it remains to be seen. I think honestly we were talking about this. Earlier phone lines are open eight oh three zero five fifty eight eight eight hundred.

"But the the thing that I come back to is since cross been back targets and the games five three eight two three of those numbers are very very bad for a wide. You have Tim, Patrick and Robert Foster ahead of him. Yep. It not PBR. And I think on the low guy on Robert Foster. Would you guys start Dante Pettus, and or Robbie Anderson ahead of Josh, Gordon? Yes. Interesting. Yes. But for for Daime, Dave and Jamie, not not Pettus, but they're close. All right. So we'll get obviously into the Buffalo New England game and the other seven AM, see home games. I've another diehard debate. That has nothing to do with Christmas that I think it was fun for the listeners. We'll get into that. Oh, yeah. Jamie. Your start of the week is kind of fun this week kinda kinda gutsy who's your star of the week Baker Mayfield. I think first off good matchup against the Bengals. I know they've played a little bit better late, but he's struggle eight three straight games with only fifteen fancy points. And they have a lot of quarterback to get the twenty or more points in three straight games. But the last time these two teams met in Cincinnati. He went for thirty four the best game this season. And I think a lot of it has to do with who's on the other side line. My guess is he's been wants to Hugh Jackson one more time big conversation. Again, this week about what he said after the game calling fake the back of handshake all the stuff that went on there. And Baker said something which I think is kinda true too young quarterback like him, that's kinda stolen the college mode. He said this is a rivalry game. And you know, what happens when you have the chance to stick it to your rival. So the Bengals are bad. They're at home. It's his last one game. I think you'll see him have another chance for I'm gonna say three touchdowns for Baker around two hundred fifty to seventy five he went for two fifty eight in four the last time against them. And so I like the setup for Callaway like the setup for joke who I think Lynch will do enough. I think Baker is going to be a top quarterback tool. Baker Mayfield ten for Jamie fourteenth day of eighth for hates. Everybody likes them. I mean fourteenth is not really that low. And would you guys start Aaron Rodgers or Baker Mayfield? I'll take Rogers. I think Roger sue. But like Brady that's another one. I struggle. With is just I think there could be a higher ceiling for Baker to give him the standpoint of will Rogers actually playing the game, and we'll finish him so bakers one that I struggle with because I think I think it's it comes down to that third. Touchdown for me. I think he can get two hundred two. I'm not sure I asked some friends in Cleveland who are close to the team. Hey, you know, is as much hype about this game as there was last time when he was city, and I was so now that it just doesn't seem like it. The rivalry common is interesting, though, the fact that he said that does cause a little bit gives me pause a little bit. I like him. But I don't I don't know if he's got that high ceiling. I don't think four touchdowns it's going to be there. And I I would bet on three either to though that'll be there. Two hundred two no interceptions. Nice clean game for Baker Mayfield. All right and actually heath is the highest atheism eighth. So you can go to Baker Mayfield this week. If you. You like cousins or Mayfield. Mayfield field o'casey. And then I know Dave's answers rivers, but for for Jamie, Haith rivers or Mayfield Mayfield may okay. All right. So that's the start of the week. And here is an awesome deal. Everybody needs to know about Omaha Steaks. I hope my father-in-law is not listening right now because we just got him the Omaha Steaks package that I've been telling you all about for the last few weeks. We just got it for him for Christmas. And he's gonna love it. And I'm going to go over there and eat some of it for sure last year was overhaul stakes one hundredth anniversary. They are. America's original butcher since nineteen seventeen. The food is incredible. I love the stakes but my favorites are actually the sausages hot dogs. Those are amazing.

"And I think if Connors out it's going to be more of a situation with the ball in his hands. It's not a setup where he's been struggling on the road. So the really been struggling on the road this season. So I give us like nods Rothlisberger, probably tasting points. But if you feel more comfortable with Brees at home, they're basically back back in ratings. Amazing the that that's five weeks ago. You wouldn't. I mean, there's no game that you wouldn't have conceal just. Yeah. You start. And that's it. Yeah. But they're, you know, they're defensive point again, but it goes against saying to play Rosberg by their defense is limiting opponents. So he's not having throw very much name is clearly playing at a high level with Kamara and Ingram, and he's just attempts have been down. But I think both sides have the chance to go off. It should be you know, you'd be over unders right around sixty points. I think they're gonna get through it. Jimmy Eisenberg CBS sports NFL fantasy analyst.

"And then if you feel like chasing, the upside if you're playing against a really strong opponent, and you can't afford to have somebody that can give you just you know, that might tap tap out at twelve points. Looking for somebody who could have twenty points. Robert Foster would be that guy. Buffalo Bills he has been Josh Allens favorite target. He is limited in terms of volume. He has got upside because he can run like the wind. He's big tall fast. Josh Allen throws the ball of mile. They play the patriots on Sunday. Robert Foster is the player to add. If you have a massive hill to climb in the championship and you want to chase that upside. So now Daniel I wanted a lot of time to get to the segment that you device. Oh, yeah. Tell us mom so excited about this. Tell me more. So here it is. We're going into week sixteen right week fifteen I like to call it. This is going to be the crappy bands. You've never heard of segment. Okay. Week fifteen was the places that you have come to fear the most where all of the guys the you're counting on the got you. They're basically just killed your fantasy team. And hopefully, you were able to make it to week sixteen. The please come to for the most great record by dashboard confessional, by the way. So here's what we're gonna do. A couple of guys that we have either. Underwhelmed or overwhelmed in week fifteen. You've got a little feel go ahead hand these out. We've got a little thing that we're going to hold up one side killer colored that goes to other one of them or no. So one side, which is the hold steady. But I have we have different color doesn't matter. Yeah. Hold steady this day positive. They'd be fighting over the colors for sure, okay. Stay positive. We've got the hold steady. And the other side is Julian Baker turn out the lights or either you're staying positive on a player. I'm gonna roll with them. Again. Even though they totally let me down week fifteen or a mature not the lights, and I'm definitely not going to play them. All right crappy band. You've never heard of. Right. The by the way, this is the most this is the biggest budget segment we've ever had this huge so six Ono, by the way popsicle stick. So I had to get 'em rewards. These are the oh, I was wondering if these were score they were also banned, by the way, I know. That's so let's have that conversation. So Jared Goff went to college this really impressive Emory. So this I wanna talk about Jared Goff. Disappointing the last couple of weeks. Just for you guys say, yes, yes. My my my wife gets upset when I referred to her as I I. Excellent. Luckily, she doesn't listen. But you easels out there from this perspective ex wife Jared Goff. Are you guys staying positive with golf or you looking to move on and weeks Ecksteen in what is a championship match-up for you guys? And you gotta hold up the sign when you do it when you go through. Okay. So who who's golf hold steady? Are you are you staying positive or you turn out the lights on Jared Goff enrolling with someone else? Divisive. Answers already. I've hold steady. Yeah. Holding steady good matchup against the Zona cardinals. And I just feel like there's no way this offense can look in the mirror for three straight weeks lakes. No way disagree that it's a good matchup. Arizona is one of the most run on teams in the NFL. They've actually they've been they've actually been quote good against the past of sneaky decent pass defense to twelve against the pass over the last four weeks. Some of that is because teams are so successful running the ball that don't attempt they don't attempt to bunch of passes against them. I think that will be the case here as well. I don't think like I look at it. As love hate. What's his project? In this week. What's your what you I? I don't know. Why I'm asking Thursday, Kyle what did you project for? I actually I was gonna say I don't really love golf this week. It's next week. The reason I'm staying positive, but I have Mattel with nineteen fantasy points. Yeah..

The ones who are I will say this also looked for tyrel Williams. Just in case nine percent, right. A lot of people dropped him. Just in case out. What about Mike Williams? How old is he same? He's he's in the mid eighties. Okay. Robbie Anderson Robbie Anderson Dante Pettis this week Roby. Robbie engine Roberto.

Like we saw early when he started a breakout. Visit four of his last five games he's gotten ten plus fantasy points. But some of that fluky just was their bright. But but the target add up is Robbie Anderson. Not fluky. He's been Fuki. He was lewke. No the targets. Yeah. Right. But it also coincides with Kelvin Benjamin betrayed for a cut. I like foster the motion non PR Daesh on the most of your. Better than Josh Reynolds. Yes. Okay. And how about Antonio Calloway against its anatomy? He's an interesting sleeper, but I wouldn't want to he's like in that flex combo low and flex how about Tim Patrick or Trent sherfield. Patrick's been getting a lot of targets when I wouldn't necessarily run away from him against Oakland. Sherefield I'm headed to the hills. Patrick is my favorite Broncos receiver in non PR.

"But they're not going to the playoffs. They're physically eliminated with his defeat, Greg. This sounds like a positive performance for Josh Allen who made some big plays and did not turn the ball over. Yeah. More of the same where he made enough. Really nice throws. Or at least a sprinkling of them to get them a win on a day where their defense played well where they on their fourth string running back Keith Ford who also was in and out of the game himself with injuries after they lost their starter in his leading three receivers are Robert.

It's almost like my term is trying to tell you when I can field essentially, a vastly no-name offense and still win games. It's like this is one of the most no-name offenses I've ever seen in my entire right and injury Robert Foster that I do think you're you're hoping if you're the bills you find some things at the end of this year, Robert Foster to me has popped the last few weeks in the big plays that he makes he's an undrafted rookie from Alabama who now has more yards this season in the NFL than he had in all four years at Alabama combined. He was a huge huge five star recruit that was all hyped up. Couldn't get his act together in college. But I don't know it looks like on something. I'd love to know how many guys are the history of the league got promoted off the practice squad. And then had three one hundred yard games in their first five games played. That's pretty good. Yup. In part of its opportunity. You're not buried behind anyone because there's no one. There's no need somebody pops like that touchdown play. He's explosive in and you can see it. He's been a nice nice combo with Alan map. That Prater misses a forty eight yarder that could have given the lines the win in the fourth quarter. And it just, you know, more of the same Detroit another not only a law season, but just kind of blassie's well, and this is one year this year stands out as a year where there's a bit of a changing of the guard happening number one. There's a lot of new young quarterbacks that are putting their stamp on their offenses and their teams and a lot of attacks that are flexible enough to change mid-season and change their fortunes in the lions remained stuck in the mud looking. Well, we ask cooter a lot of credit for what he's able to do once he took over. I guess it was a year and a half ago something like that. But I don't know if that's stalled out or now he's in danger. I think he's in danger. But like he's in big time danger. It's if you're lines Ben I feel for you. Because I also route for team that seems perpetually stuck in the mud, and it just there's no pop and the only thing that makes them a strange team. And we'll have plenty of time talking about this is that they have extensively a franchise quarterback behind center. Just continue to pass them by a guy who seemed to improve the last two years to be the steady sort of top ten quarterback and this year taking a big step back, and it's hard to say how much of it's him. How much of it's the offense. And how much of it is all the injuries. They've had on that off the whole offense is thrown up jump balls to Kenny golladay. And I don't know if there's anyone better at it right now other than nuke Hopkins. He had two more today that we're just amazing under Davis white. He he's a special player. Let's move.

I think it was on third down and the offense gets the balls back. And you guys are able to kind of close things out coach McDermott talks about complementary football.

"Cardinals play and to make the plot. Thicken this MAC the bears are scheduled to visit the raiders in twenty nineteen low. It's going to be very interesting in Oakland. No doubt about it. That's NFL notebook. I'm Steve Courtney. Here's the fantasy football report with Sean baligian. What last week the lion's face the lowest scoring team in the league this week. It's the second lowest scoring team the Buffalo Bills now in fairness to the bills. The offense has been a little better with Josh Allen at the helm the past three weeks, but you are certainly taking a risk starting a bills offensive player. Now, let's start with the above four mentioned rookie, Josh Allen. He has five total touchdowns the past three weeks, and he is run for ninety nine hundred and thirty five and one hundred one yards in those three games as well. Robert Foster is a guy to watch this. He has gone over one hundred yards in two of his last four games and Jones has been activists. Well with three scores in his last four even got a passing attempt last week as well. But both of these receivers should be considered only in deeper leagues. Or if injuries are in play shady McCoy does not have. Of much value with that hamstring and the same can be said for any bills running back as Josh Allen has done the heavy lifting on the ground. Now, the bills defense has been pretty good overall this year, they're number one in terms of passing yards against in the league only allowing a hundred and eighty six yards a game. That is not good news for a lions offense. That is banged up and struggling to say, the least Matthew staffer had only one hundred one yards passing in the lion. Seventeen three win over Arizona. And the entire passing game is a big question. Mark one question Mark that you should probably leave on your bench. The bills are only allowing about one hundred and five per on the ground as well making league Garrett blunt and Zach Zana risky plays as well. Especially if you're talking fantasy playoff time two teams struggling offensively with improved defensive play as of late this screams look.

"But I kind of intrigued by them. I'm intrigued by the dolphins defense and how they used Minka last week. They used to miss an outside corner. Not in the slot. He's playing wonderfully three weeks, but he'd been working in the slot for most no he replaced. The McCain McCain's been bench. Mccain McCain was in the slot last week. So I'm like trying to find a match up that would take advantage of that. And it's buffalo. Backup. Because Robert Foster's played is giving you too good fantasy games. One was with Matt Barkley one was with Josh Allens fast. And we know that big aren't can do with the player that can get down to fill like you said he's fast. I think if he is matched up against anybody. But exerting Howard. We've seen this happen before where the dolphins will go back to Texas game willfuller torch that secondary I like that matchup because speed against that secondary is not necessarily a bad thing. So any interest Robert Foster deeper release how about daily Georgia use him as a punt planned daily sixteen team league, maybe fourteen not twelve stash are we at the point with Robert full targets haven't been there yet. But you know, look there they have to revamp this receiving core for next year. It's just it's it's trophy. And so, you know, if you're going to build around Josh Allen, you know, maybe he's the third guy. Maybe he's the speed guy. Maybe he's the one that is the market Goodwin. They sent him off somewhere else and becomes a better player as they had him a few years ago. But yet there's not a lot of must start guys for buffalo outside of maybe less on McCoy for the dolphins. Kenyan drake. We hope. He's going. Healthy has that shoulder injury? But is there any must start play for the dolphins this week heath? Must start. I don't think. So no, I think you could flex gore or Kenyan Drake. The receivers are a complete and total mess right now. Especially those outright. I think in my opinion, the two best plays in this game. Or the bills defense in the dolphins defense. I McCoy ahead of both of them. But I think the bills DNC is that's. I think they both outscore Sean McVay I'll take the bills over the dolphins. I will take the bills over the dolphins. Also, I have no faith in the dolphins defense right now. But that's just me. I don't really think there's anybody else in this game need to worry about. All right. Let's go now to Kansas City to Oakland start all chiefs, sit all raiders outside of Doug Martin. And Jerry cook. Yes. Giardi PR. I know he has eight lately, but I think he'll come into play the Chris Conley? We talked about him a couple of times over the last few days if Sammy Watkins is out number three receiver with upside number two guy, avoid just receiver modest upside. I don't wanna get too swept up in what he did against the Rams. Yeah. Number three, upside Josh Reynolds conversation, but bind. Okay. And then for the raiders again, Doug Martin is a borderline starter. He likes him more than Dave does. I'm just outside. My starting group starting running backs, but these these flex option sharp PR's in that same range. Yeah. Maybe a little are you take charge over Martin appear. Yes. You think Martin overview started PR Martin passes and just to reiterate Jerry cook very very plays. I know you're still gonna start him because you're president of the Jerry fan club. Right. I guess I'm going to use them. Yeah. I mean who else does dare car have to throw to Marcel eight men who he had targets last week. He caught three of them. Yeah. He was terrible. Enjoyed Nelson still dealing with with his injury situation. He did play last week. He had a great reverse where he ran sideways.

"Good morning. Good morning. How we doing doing? All right. How is it down? There. How is MetLife stadium? These days. It is a sun-splashed field high of about forty seven today. So nice fall day here in New York. It's not even that Wendy here. And it's almost always windy out here in the Meadowlands, but not today. One of the things I think Murph said this week that for all the money they spent on that stadium. And it doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles like just kind of a big huge standard stadium. Yes. It's a cookie cutter. Yeah. Fortunately, that's what it is. Yeah. All right. Well, we get Matt Barkley today. Gentlemen. So expectations. The news comes as a bit of a surprise. But I I said to to sell this way that everything that's happened at quarterback for the bills this year. It's almost like you can't be surprised by anything anymore. Take mark. I have that one. Well, good morning. Yeah. Good morning beautiful day here in New York. I mean, you can't be surprised. I mean, we've been surprised I'll season I. You know? I would concur. Because there are I would surmise here because it believes that they would have kept the veteran quarterback on the roster to begin the season in AJ McCarron. You thought would be that guy and he didn't play particularly well in the preseason. And then don't know how he would have fit in is is not being the starter. And maybe that was a consideration certainly was a consideration in in the situation that unfolded at the beginning of the year with with Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman. But yeah, it's been a carousel. And it's been guys that have not had meaningful playing time and a couple of years and Matt Barkley is the latest one in Matt Barkley's numbers are not particularly great in the in the NFL. And and I think he's thrown ATV's and probably eighteen interceptions. But they've got to be able to run the ball, which is a formidable tasks against this really good front. So it'll be interesting to see, but they're just going to have to not make mistakes if they don't make mistakes they'll have a chance if they make mistakes they'll have no chance going to make some changes to the run game. I mean, no Chris ivory. The bills just releasing the inactive and Chris ivory inactive along with Ike. Butger a white teller expected to get some time. So Chris when it comes to running the football is this just are they shuffling things around trying to find whatever they can to get something going, positively. Yeah. I mean, I think that's part of it. But I think we've hit let's play the kids mode with this team two and seven the playoffs are not part of the equation anymore. It's play the kids. Get the guys experience know exactly what you have by putting them in game situations. Why it tells you start at left guard today in place of Vladimir do Koss? You only have two running backs today to healthy running backs not counting the fullback DeMarco in LA Shawn McCoy and Marcus Murphy with ivory down. You also have only two tight ends today with Charles clay down. You basically got Logan Thomasson Jason Croom. So you're short at a couple of positions. The one position you're very heavy at right now is wide receiver Terrell Pryor. Brought in last week Isiah McKenzie this week we'll see if he gets some action on returns. And so you've got a different and you called up Robert Foster yesterday from the practice squad. So if there's one thing that they've added to the offense is speed Robert Foster deep speed Isiah, McKenzie tons of speed to burn and prior pretty fast receiver for a player his size. It's going to be interesting to see if that helps this team in the passing. Game knowing that Barkley with all of eleven days of preparation is getting all the help he can get what can you get an eleven days. Can you get a? Can you can you get a base level understanding of the offense? Well, I mean, you know, we talked to Barclay on Friday because it was very quickly looking as though things we're going to head in his direction. If if Allen wasn't going to be able to start, and he essentially told us what you know. Derek Anderson told us three or four weeks ago. He's basically just trying to master this week's game plan the books too voluminous to pick up on the fly and master in that short a period of time. So you are tasked as a quarterback with mastering the game plan. No all those plays that could be called on Sunday and just worry about that. And he said and told us he felt he had a pretty good handle was pretty comfortable because he felt there was a lot of carryover for him from previous systems that he's been in. This is the sixth one that he has been a part of I still think though that coach able is going to have to scale things back. He's he's mad. He feels comfortable with the game plan, but I can guarantee you that coached able created a smaller game plan this week knowing once it was known that Barkley was going to be the store he gives them the cliff notes, basically and then trying to find a way to get. Them up to up to speed on everything Mark when it comes to this Mark when it comes to all these different systems is this, you know, he's got a little pieces of each one probably from from years past and teams passed. I is it like some of it will come back, and you gotta make sure that you don't mix one system with the other system. I would imagine that having that much floating around in your brain. It's it's it might be a little more difficult for a guy like bark made a really kind of honing on on this one. I wouldn't be surprised if a couple times he steps into the huddle, and he starts to call something the way that he's used to call an as as opposed to the way that goes wants to call it. But look everybody runs similar things. I mean, they run the re with back coming out of the backfield tight receiver on the backside. They run the inside zone play. They pull that guard and they run that power league with the guard, and maybe the full back at the same time. So it's not it's not the type of plays. It's it's it's what plays that this game plan is going to focus on, and it's the terminology of those things because terminology is different from club the club. But plays we'll have some consistency. It just depends on again with what with what consistency. They run particular place over over a team that executes something else. Whether it's a power running game or or an edge running game or something of that nature. But I think they need to simplify things in it. I think for this entire offensive unit. They've got young guys. Why teller is Chris mentioned is going to be at left offensive guard. So you got to simplify the system a little bit for him as well. So that those guys can block effectively the screen game. Look I looked at that game Thursday night when the when the Steelers dismantled the Carolina Panthers. And and Ben Rothlisberger was twenty two twenty five. And and I only watched about ten minutes of the game. And I bet I saw seven screen passes. So I mean that's a play when you have a quarterback. That's not real familiar with the system that you can execute. Get the ball out the play makers early in the down and let those playmakers make some place. So hopefully, the running game could be a good good part of a a active offensive strategy. Today, but a difficult team to run against this jets front seven. Kickoff roundtable, Jeremy white Chris Brown Marquel? So in an ideal world guys you'd probably think that the the quarterback knows the offense cold and spends the week working on the defense of the opposing team. So in this scenario is Matt Barkley's last eleven days, basically, only working on the offense. How much will he how much time will we have to even learn what the jets do or what the jets might try to do to this bills offense. Well, no, you've got to watch film of your opponent. I mean, you can't go in blind. So you have to find time for that. And they go over that in quarterback meetings as well as well as offensive team meetings. So all of that is covered in those times where Barkley is looking for extra time is to master the game plan better kind of have it memorized to a certain degree in his head be able to visualize the concept of the play. So he knows where everybody is going to be when he gets to the top of his drop. So you've got enough time to get a handle on that. But yeah, you have to study the opponent just like you would any week. This is the jets defense that is still pretty formidable upfront. Leonard Williams is probably one of the best big defensive ends in the National Football League and is going to be a handful for Jordan mills today. And I think mcclendon is an underrated defensive tackle. And I know Mark, you know, who watches a lot more film than any any of the rest of us can probably attest to that. Yeah. There's no question about that. I mean, this this team is hard to run against up inside. But they do some. I mean, they're they're not real fancy defensively or offensively for that matter. But defensively I mean, if Matt Barkley is under center, and he looks and sees those two safeties about ten or eleven yards from the line of scrimmage between the hash the numbers. He can he can pretty much rest assured, they're playing some form of cover to whether it's a two man or two-zone. And and then you take a picket to corners and try to see what height they are. And when they're when they're real tall. And they're standing up at the snap or or near the snap. When the down begins. Then then you know, he has a pretty good idea that they're going to be playing zone covered. So they don't do a lot of things defensively. But I think they give Jamal Adams who who's just a dynamic player from the safety position as well. A lot of a rush discretion is what I would call. It seems like there's times when he comes when it see when I look at my say, I don't think they had applets call there. But he just decided he was going to disrupt things, and maybe they. Kept an extra blocker in. So you gotta be really careful of that. And you gotta make sure you have a receiver who's running some type of blitz route. So that you can get rid of the ball really quickly. If if in fact, that's that's the person you're responsible for so some some interesting things, but the other thing they do guys is they when when they play their front, and you set the running strength of your offensive line to a particular side, you're gonna to the defensive line that way. And I think there's some opportunities to attack that backside which we what I would call the under front of that of that defensive formation. So there will be some opportunities against this team. And I think with the breadth of experience the partly has to this point. He'll he'll be able to recognize some of those things if they start changing things up and and moving as soon as the snap occurs that might be a little bit more difficult throughout the season. It's not just been about a quarterback carousel the wide receiver group unit constantly changing. Whether it's Jeremy curly at the start of the season. Robert Foster called backup off practice squad. How do you like the receivers in comparison to? The groups the bills have put out there before do you think they're faster? Do you think there are a little bit better? As a group today is maybe other days through the season. Yeah. I mean, as I mentioned earlier, it seemed like the moves in the last two weeks have been designed to get more speed on the field. Consistent separation has been a problem. And that's not always fixed alone by speed. I remember having a conversation ten years ago with Lee Evans, and he told me just because I run a four three doesn't mean. I'm going to get consistent separation. It does come down to the precision with which you run your routes, and you don't have to be fast to be an effective receiver in terms of getting separation in this league. Unfortunately, the receivers that don't possess a lot of speed on this roster. Have had trouble getting consistent separation. So now they're turning to speed hoping that will create more opportunities for Matt Barkley to take advantage of. I think that's the single biggest difference with the three editions that they've made in the last two weeks prior foster and MacKenzie, and who knows we may not even see much of MacKenzie on offense this week..

"The they're letting go of Jeremy curly who by the way, play just about seventy percent of snaps in week one very strange that you guys been the third wide receiver since training camp began played seventy percent of snaps and your week. One opener is now off the team that is strange. But now that he's gone, and you have Robert Foster behind him who was the next who's next in snaps played at about thirty percent. If he's the guy that ends up playing Robert Foster's outside receiver Robert Foster is your vertical threat because that's the role he would play. And to me, I wonder then if Zeta Jones would be the guy who moves into the slot, which to be honest, I think seems more natural for him is playing in the middle. And if you've got a foster is going to be the guy that starts to get the bulk of the. Snaps that are now left over from Jeremy curly being gone. Then I think maybe Jones is more of a slot guy. And I don't really know how that would really affect his value though. I think it would be a little more beneficial. If he got into the slot. You know, one you're facing off against weaker competition in the secondary, generally. And to it seems like a natural fit for a guy legs eight Jones with his skill set. You know, he's shifty. He's a guy who can move around. He is a guy who could probably benefit from being a slot receiver in this league. And I think the bills have not been able to put him in a situation where that could actually happen yet. How do you see the receiver breakdown coming though because now with curly gone? I mean, it's a bit up in the air because we haven't seen them practice with what the receivers have looked like we haven't seen them in the preseason without Jeremy curly being with the ones you've got foster. I know they love McLeod Andre homes only played about fifteen percent of snaps in week one. And he's more of an outside guy. So. I don't know. I don't know. What this receiving core? Looks like on the field. Now are they really going to trust Robert Foster to be like one of their main outside wide receivers. He's an undrafted guy. Any not like he did a Todd in the preseason. He he didn't do a ton. But here's something that came here is something that you can go ahead and put some form of money into on today. He's gonna go and take a deep shot to Robert Foster in this game. And the chargers are going to have to game plan against the sort of thing, which may open things up underneath for example for Zeke Jones for Charles clay, four Shawn McCoy because the charges are going to have to play off. They're gonna have to back off and respect the arm. Alan starting over Peterman has anything to do with curly getting released. No, I think that has to do with the numbers game they had three defensive tackles. But that's what I that's why I wonder when when we're talking about wide receiver they five I think railroad McLeod is healthy. And I think they're light, right McLean. I don't think McCloud was ever in this equation. I think maybe what it came down to was. Okay. We're going to Robert Thomas we need to cut a wide receiver. All right. We're not cutting jobs. We're not cutting Benjamin we liked McLeod. He's young. We're not cutting him. So then you've got three names leftover. You've got Jeremy curly you've got Robert Foster and Andre homes. And my my point is here. I wonder if because Ellen his main asset is that big arm, and you've got to give him some sort of vertical threat, whereas Peterman doesn't have that to his game. If they go okay Ellen starting we can't get rid of Robert Foster. And maybe I guess this is more along the more point for foster than it is for curly. I wonder if they ruled out. Cutting Robert Foster because they knew that they had to have some sort of vertical pass game for Josh Allen. When he went in there. I would agree with that part of it. I really think though, it also has to do with the fact that I think because curly's a veteran he's not waiver eligible. He could just hit the free market and do what he needs the bills did this in what is the most convenient way for them, and they wouldn't have released curly. If McLeod is not healthy because that means you're only four receivers for the whole game. That sounds like a great idea. He might be a dark horse to play a lot like even in the slot. If they don't want to do on the outside, and I'm sure we'll see a lot of different looks. But if they don't wanna do mainly foster in their three wide receiver packages, and then moves jokes the slot. If they really do like McLeod place. Maybe he's the one that's out there. And I see how many times have I said, I'm team Ray Ray. And if that happens off, you better bet I'm picking him up tomorrow on the one reason I use a six round pick. So I don't want to make too much out of them. It really it says a lot about where the bills are wide receiver that you get excited round pick playing. But really he's one of the few guys. I think that's on your offense. You could just throw a screen to him. He can make a guy missing open-field by the..

Johnny Manziel's trade to the CFL changes his path to playing time
"Dropping them in, on your third line that's fair spot for them, to sit, on your roster and so what does this mean, for the, sabres like I I don't look at them and say. Well now a playoff team this is you know, it's a it's a climb to get there but you know if all these things kind of fall into place, you know comes in and has a good year middle steps you know, productive rookie Darlene is what everybody thinks Darlene can be You know. May, maybe they are in contention for playoff spot I think there's you know there are a. Lot of questions that, are going to go into that but if you're in the position of the sabers like opportunity is there to get somebody like, Skinner who's gonna make, you more competitive give you a chance of, being in, the playoff hunt and file means do it you know you kind of been rebuilding for a. While now at some. Point you've got to take that next step and. If you know if Jeff Skinner gives you, a shot at at that this year, then terrific. If things really, go sideways in the next season doesn't go. Very well well then you worry about moving Jeff Skinner. Before the deadline and trying to recoup some assets? But in, the meantime I think this gives the, a, much better chance to. Be competitive, in in, for all, the reasons that you you pointed. Out whether it's Skinner trade the Subotica coming in the rookie coming, in like, I I have to assume that the sabres are, going to, be better than they were last season I just thought I am ready to put them on a playoff team would you assume they're. Better than Ottawa I shouldn't laugh so readily I'm afraid I'm afraid for the way things are going for the Senate and. Not just for next season I don't know what is going to happen to them long term because So they for example they signed Mark stolen. He's probably the, best player on their roster but they started to a one year deal so he'll be unrestricted the ago. I guess they still have Eric Carlson on the roster so he's actually No one expects him to be there long-term either it's, like well those guys aren't going to be there how are you gonna convince anyone. To. Play there, presumably presumably, they'll have to throw. Money at people to to do it but, yeah it's not looking good in the nation's. Capital of Shane I think is. Set to be a free agent after next year to. Isn't it yeah He. Is Yeah they're they're looking at their three best players are signed through next season in in not. Any further so They're in a really tough spot right. Now TSN Scot Colin there with Mike shope and the bulldog I was mentioning all of those things that are kind of going, on right now as, we watched the show Jeff Skinner's a saber the, bills are. Practicing. Your field Conor McGregor. Returning you forgot Johnny Manziel is playing football Right now is it since two thousand fifteen, but it actual. Football yes it is you wanna why because these games count these games count for, something not preseason especially at the hall of fame game they don't award you something for winning the preseason maybe, they, should they run, it the line of scrimmage before the play oh, my God. How. Deeper those end zones Tonight ball, it's a nice. Ball their desks but again Soli What's your problem with Canadian? Football there's a. Lot I just mentioned three things all at. Once it's funny is there's a legal motion on every, play but it's legal for as many as three, players but what is even Thanks The goal posts are in the front which allows you to run into, them but you, know you don't have this in. CFL you don't have what is the? Cowboy we're gonna pause thirty seconds because this, this this guy in the offense flinched and he somehow gained a competitive advantage by flinching because the NFL determines that is some sort of competitive advantage that we have to flag the other team for. The there's parts of Canadian football that, actually if you think about, it like maybe that's kind of where the NFL's going wider fields more spread out of fighting for more. Offense I was about to, say so there'd be, less you, know had, hits big hits and, stuff but then here they are because they're in Canada and they're. Fighting so there's that this is normal for Canadian sports. Hockey I guess football and I'd like their end zones are shaped. Weird the field goal poster at the front of the end, zone which means you could run into. Them three players get to run at the line of furniture for the ball. Snaps So confusing so so Hamilton drove down and they scored, a touchdown so Johnny Menzel who plays. For the Montreal Alouette he is just about to get onto the field northeast Demands I'll revenge game the bills are practicing right, now newer field Nathan Peterman is with the ones there wasn't injury to update you on bills receiver Kaelin clay. Was down on. The field if being hit over the. Middle but he was up and walking off after the. Head AJ McCarron working with the Tuesday to two. Minute drill Robert Foster ended the drive with a fumble Clay Kaelin clay eventually, goes back to the locker. Room as well and is. From, what. I've seen he. Has not returned so there's you quick update on bills practice down, at newer feelable. Here player sound as, the night progresses patios down at the..
