Happy new year is one down one ago this mikes down that on the down and with -- look at -- it's the extra point on WGR Thurman Thomas is here -- me for the next two hours and don't talk about Thurmond. I don't know. Analysts say can't. I thought it went through -- if you -- To any. Tonight and really fun in there yeah actually. Dinka on to us wrong. In after yesterday him pretty much morneau -- -- time sports really so you're not gonna do another watch another thing that's on tonight that might be of interest and that is Stanford. -- play Stanford Virginia Tech. In the Orange -- I think one of the bulls with stolen yeah I think I might watch a game because. Obviously Andrew. And -- -- -- boy wouldn't be -- missed it was you know to get that and one pay off off -- you talk about happy people around here. I mean if you come out today is -- that's where we're gonna do -- and Doug -- That will be might make the offseason go by real office. Well -- there's already read about that. There's already been a lot of talk about that I think and here's the question I have. Why would Carolina do it like one. Don't if if they had a quarterback. That they had just drafted that they had a good year from amended -- is that they did just draft Jimmy Claussen last year but that didn't get them anywhere and I. I would expect them to take Andrew Luck if he came out but that's why that is going to be of very. Difficult situation for the Nags Head coach for the -- and those. As I have people that I know. Lived on Charlotte in the GM who selected Claussen is like oh. You know. So that is. That could be a problem of course Denver. Drafted Tim Tebow last year and now John Elway is going into their front office and John Elway license. Tebow. Slow. But it's of the is gonna end -- -- coaches. There's a lot of things that are still left to figure out here with this offseason. I'm jealous you guys guys got -- this week in May be next week of who's gonna be head coaches was some of these jobs that are open all -- home god you -- have. There's a lot of drama with the with the SE BA two -- who. We'll be watching to see if there's going to be a draft and all kinds of all kinds of stuff that coaches are going down right. Eric Mangini Cleveland is out on -- just read a story at the Oakland coach most of even though they went six and though their division finished eight Nate. -- Headed out the door. It's but Chan Gailey -- like he's not going anywhere. No I don't think generally over how good a job he'd do. I think has said it best yesterday that they don't want his press on his press conferences. We might be a little bit farther away that I thought we war. And so -- him saying that. -- one it is probably Yuma eight. Go to best job we possibly good with their -- -- I don't wanna buy though the hit his. His assessment of how far away they are like it it. He's to be heard on that but he's not to determine that because he could he could say that forever and still. Hang around if I went by that I wanna I wanna know. I wanna use my own my own eyes and in -- how good should they be and no I was expecting them to win this year. And he didn't know if that is so I guess. This year coming up as it is here. Wanna see them get better next. And loved -- win eight games major. -- that be a big joke that be a big job by day considering the teams you know that we talked about that the beat this year justice and the Detroit. Cleveland and Miami Cleveland in my nobody good yet nobody good so I mean yes I think. I mean I just think that this offseason and is going to be. An -- talk to you about it Bulldog bullet. I DC 1015. New players. Or twenty players on this football team. And they have a lot of guys -- with their contracts -- Whitner. As. They -- -- and Lawrence who do a couple things this year me a couple plays yes side and only then if you you talk about you know. -- McGee and he's been injured audio long. They keep him -- to struggle. -- lot this year -- special teams and -- and play defense -- bad so there's a lot of question marks over. And it's going to be I hope right now they're already looking at free agents for the teams that are not in the playoffs. Ligament creative from other teams and and really evaluate their draft me -- -- that's that's going to be the key they had at third pick. If they don't trade -- has to be a guy where there is defense offense. That's going to be here from 1015 years they're going to be at the top of his positions. At least in the top three and his position. Let's get into the draft with that 8030550. Is the number Thurman Thomas and Mike show will be here until known. Is it important to you if you were running the show. Knowing that mean you feel the pain you know it's been eleven years. You're you're aware your your your -- and all the the feelings of the fans is it important to you that whoever they take what that traffic. Start. What whatever position he plays start in 2011 does he need to make a difference next year. No doubt. They draft -- he's my starter at whatever position there is quarterback included quarterback include. I don't think there's anybody on that football team right now that says that I got this job blog now for the next five to news. I think there's a college guy out there that come in. And take over whatever job award over spot this on a football team. I guess quarterbacks the one where. You'd expect may be the player to not start everywhere else though. You'd think he'd be he'd probably be a starter. Mean that they wouldn't be that big -- story if they drafted a defense lineman I would expect him to be no doubt in there on opening day. And that that might be the next thing after quarterback or the thing with quarterback that. Is out of the likely has to happen or the thing the would be the most popular defense of line. Yes. If you're gonna stick -- Fitzpatrick. I draft all defense and -- they can't stop -- They cannot stop the just thing about how many games they would've probably. -- one I mean they had eight games were they had teens rushed for over two -- that they. I think if they -- cut that number down to four. That might could've gotten some more victories. You also that's right as the so debt to me right there is the most important port port is too. Bring in some guys that are going to start. And make an impact right away especially on defense and I know that the office line is not really together but I'm thinking. The way fits handled that this year the defense. Has to be the focal point of this -- Let's talk about the possibility of drafting a quarterback there. We talked already a little bit about Andrew Luck and I I'll I'll allow that it's possible. That he could. And up in the -- fans but I think it's barely possible it's not impossible but it's whatever is next to that. To me I doubt very much he will be available the third pick and I don't think. There's a trade at the bills can. A bidding war should say that the bills can win. That would. Allow them to move up may be I'll be wrong about that but I I think that's very unlikely after Andrew Luck. It's changed a lot this year hasn't it it's starting with Jake Locker with but it went to Ryan mallet and -- went to cam Newton and now I wonder if it'll be blamed Gabbard from Missouri. I've heard. I read somewhere. A bargain program that religion wanting my arms go in December in the you don't Internet inside they come -- -- and that he could be the second best quarterback that comes out that -- yes. From -- And -- -- well that's. And -- -- let -- the second best quarterback when we've been talking about locker and mallet and look this entire year and -- new. And -- he's jumped way above those guys he had a tremendous ball game until -- pass late in the game his team leading. That was intercepted return for the winning touchdown it was not a good friend but he had. Something like 43 for 159400. Yards and legacy you. He's big that's right -- get out. Iowa OK thank you that's -- Missouri -- dial -- good so he's 65. Hello. So the question that is for -- is somebody after Andrew Luck. Some quarterback after Andrew look good enough. To pick that early who. And like comparing they can do any combination of things -- but compare that option. With. Taking. If they can there's a couple of really good prospects on the defense on line available. They could take one of those guys and then maybe pick one of the other quarterbacks I mentioned in the second round OPEC early in the second round -- -- So I think that the -- will like we wanna hear from some fans about this now we know where they're going to pick third which is very good. I think that would be more popular knowing how people like Fitzpatrick this year and that and people don't consider the quarterback to be the biggest weakness on the bills. I think fans there were up Bob poll taken. Would prefer to see the bills take if possible. A defense lineman that's very highly regarded. At number three and then hoped to get. One of those quarterbacks. At whatever would be 35. Ish. What do you think I think from yesterday yet -- Corbett. Well hi Ryan or in front Iraq's. Prime and he -- the record that it doesn't make it their review that it is releasing anything -- -- league. Or Brian Brohm. And so I'm. You're talking about drafting a quarterback to replace Ryan Fitzpatrick -- -- you do that that's what you have to do start. Or other -- Well only if there's a lot. Like music that your quarterback in the second round I think he's the secretary Gordon. Well like I get to deliver the first ladies. Brown & Brown. But see that's that I think is is the dilemma for the bills although you're talking later runs an hour. It's more. I think it would be more palatable. But if you draft one of these quarterbacks that is considered a top prospect and then and then set them that -- it's understandable why you might. Wanna do that. -- crazy but I thought but you know just an American on the Andrew -- the enemy. Are there any players are any packages. That the bills can do to get to -- more epic. Well I mean they might have given the first draft the next five years the first round -- for next five years I don't think they would do I know they Wharton but usually they're not don't think they would do it but you know when you -- these -- try to get that number one pick if -- Number three. Yeah you use it brought a couple of players. I slowly but. How are there any glare at its nominee -- weird to have that you can throw an epic is much more well since we're just talking your you know one guy they do have is CJ Spiller. Who. Is a top ten pick himself. And didn't really doing. Howard. I don't know how would people feel about it. -- -- or you're with the I wouldn't trade everything in the world for that -- but he didn't help me and I don't know exactly how old. Discouraged. Or how I'm supposed to feel about that because there are lots of variables right in football and you have coaching in. How much playing time -- you get was which was not a lot -- opportunities. Such that they were suited for his skills. But I I'm not optimistic about him being by starting tailback you know like he's seems like kind of a a role player. And whether that's returns I don't know but I gotta get them outside to be good thing and even then it wasn't great. Now and yeah. I was of this border was she was employed visitors. Not really given an opportunity to do it you know like embassy and 1520 cares -- just -- if -- -- fifteen -- cares Andy and he just got. Forty yards. I'm not fine with them but at least give it a shot so. Who knows might. A can be a great offseason and they after the playoffs because there's so many scenarios of what players are gonna keep what players are not go to -- Donte Whitner -- gone. -- I think he's got to be gone if he wants money. What does he do to -- it. I would absolutely let him go post closely I think as little trickier. Because I don't know much money he's talking about right right he was the second topic he was the second round pick and a and I don't know that he was. Worse or better than Whitner but. I don't think the at all need to keep him. Mean they weren't good against -- he's the middle linebacker. You know bottom line they were. And that is that last week youngsters hasn't changed that. And a top ten tacklers this year. Poznan. Poland what Norway and -- it. That's -- leading tacklers in the leak down soul. Too bad they didn't count tackles Indians couldn't -- It's an on and I there I know. But puzzle as the other dogs talk with a run pass coverage both of these guys. -- have been big disappointments I think just not not up to par. So not Cameron -- have a number well -- -- -- and as something emblems a safety net. And and you know -- is ridiculous collier. And -- -- tied union so I don't think either -- and needs Tuesday but you know and in this league everything's about value how much does it cost. How much does the player need to have -- Donte Whitner wants to be paid like he's a leak in my opinion he's never been close to really -- and he will have to leave. To take a swing at that it's not it shouldn't happen here. I'm puzzler Disney might not think of himself that way they are in terrible shape at linebacker thank yen and you know what I think as a player room. In this situation. You know I think it's. Could be in his best interest of from. He doesn't go on and try to get the biggest country. If he stays here. Images except. Now what they give you what was fair to you and -- fair to the thing and he also might be a player. That and this is almost -- anybody but he could make a big difference with -- we really have not seen him play. On a team was great -- And middle linebackers nothing about London Fletcher. It's a different player when. You have a good interior line on defense and if they are able to draft someone. In the first round who's like an automatic. Linchpin player up there but you might not think you need upgraded middle linebacker so soon. So I think he's he's -- -- down the middle for me like I don't think he's very good but. It's not to me like always urged. Mistakes and his talking to -- came up a problem I think I mean it just I I I want him to leave. But those laws and he is a little bit different I think. Then how speedily. Or did you know nearly weakened that we can negotiate just like the players or will ever our prices well you know I just -- -- -- media. -- A rough offseason for a lot and he's going to be one of the offseason were you probably going to be. Well. Yet this player is shooting at them. And got this -- -- -- -- I think there's a real lot of ignored round -- so we have to wait don't we have to wait hold for a while we can't do it now and none of this stuff signing people can really happened until we know there's going to be a season. I mean that's that's number one right had to -- every conversation gets started by by the CBO by the idea though it's being. You know and you know you're lo for his deal to like come down line. -- Super Bowl week. So -- that you know just to get a router away. But hum. You know I think these these college key is how the Clinton -- -- two weeks in two -- within by the fifteenth maybe half. We will gavel we can talk more about that I hope to hear from some fans on the draft today. As that's the number one topic with the bills right now is we know where they're going to pick now what happens the 8030550. Is the number also it's playoff season two and as everybody listening knows this guy played in many playoff games I wanna hear about some of the which is what it's like not to be all I can't remember what it's like about this spot. Just you know the playoffs being jealous of the teams that are in the playoffs and talking -- -- about just his career and what. Those games were like to play and the number again 8030550. I might show -- with Thurman Thomas were here until noon on WGR Sports Radio 550. Who general. You like him. -- might want to week. Interest. The Thurman Thomas extra point continues. I'm Mike -- good to have -- -- today happy new year which for years and anything exciting note stated wife and friends over and it's -- -- come midnight. -- no actually. We. We care. David Justice -- It when you're on yeah I know would they were. You know there always figure out what reports -- And we offered to take care of their key is for that night so they angle and I. And we condom -- host of things. But boy. And unbelievable. One -- three. I don't want it is. After two our analysts are the run things behind you yes it is yes -- blood that we can. And and a -- is -- is for for news -- he's the player of this bill season for me. Not the MVP I don't mean exactly that just. He is the most interesting guy -- was the most instinct on the team which saw him ascend to a place where he became. Well known around the country. And then you had the -- drop in his Twitter acted after that. And is it right to say he wasn't the same after that. You know I had Steve the only -- oh last week. And before the show I can talk to him about. You know. What's so with the unit -- regained you know you have been released on energy that you showed him of first. 0892. Weeks of the season. And -- answer right away so I think he did kind of hit that brick wall you know. So I mean now in I was concerned about that in I the last three or four games he really hasn't been. What he was the first ten right into I don't hold onto the ball him yeah I couldn't all of their ball anymore I don't know if that. That this bird dropped affected him for arrested a year. But yet it was -- you know what though even with CNET. At least they have a guy that they know that will be on the team this year that can be a go to. I think him and how we have word the two best players on the team this year has been especially -- At the -- -- went -- Pro Bowl. I think Stevie Johnson is a real X-Factor for the bills in the future. A guy that. Definitely. Made some plays and did what apparently he was saying was his goal this year was which was to bring some excitement to the team I mean in -- winning ever mentioned but OK -- -- a but it already talked about how everything was clicking and then you told him and I got in trouble so. Okay he's an X-Factor he could. B a players that you really wanna count on. But down I know you hope that what happened in the Pittsburgh game and after that doesn't like become part of it is. Psyche now. I told them I told -- have to we have talked. You know whatever you did this past year. Doesn't mean anything -- yet to come back into a better job -- And if you dropped him as is this year. These are apologetic you should cut that down to five or two are not. That's how you gotta think -- -- -- -- from a football players talked to know for butler that's how I looked dead you know 'cause and but -- disappointed he drops tomorrow at. It no doubt about it so. Yeah he's got to look at the season what you do right what you did it wrong and just try to correct. -- as a masterful Bartley and so you know hopefully you know. Roscoe -- next year. -- -- In this development which we don't know he's under contract he's on a contract you know for the nine million of them now as a matter Alba. Home. We'll thermal -- -- thing about Steve jets as. It is and it. There's a change that happens to to you when there might be you tell me when you go from being a guy that. Is may be a long shot as you come into the league to make a team and then you know just sort of a -- no one's really expecting anything from. To being a player that. You not not only the fans know about but the other teams know about becoming a god it is really counted out it's got I'm thinking. -- did it in a regular workplace could be totally different and you'd have to make an adjustment. Psychologically. To it you know maybe ago in -- to go from. Guy who can just gonna do -- staying in whatever happens happens to somebody that team really needs. What you know what I think happened was Stephen Johnson that especially when he went down as you know what -- started in the double codes. Because before he was to sync it up all the time and I think that's why. He was -- such an outstanding season you know cause nobody really knew about Steven Johnson. They were kind of double team Menard. Not double team Lee Evans on the other side of the wants to leave went down. I think they sought -- -- with some rose. Man over topic man underneath the Stephen Johnson -- as big a mighty Amylin frustrated. Because he wasn't open all the time it wasn't as easy as it was the first ten games of the season so. I that you don't with a player yet they don't want the this National Football League they prepare the bitter if you're having a great year in all of a sudden things change. -- -- And have a defense for that. They're not just let you run around all the time and and be open when nobody around you like like happened in the first half of the season. -- -- a lot of -- catches and yet nobody wasn't that but you saw as like the last five or six days when he started it. Kind of dropping -- balls or whatever there were guys on him hanging around autumn all the time so yep there's a different. The great players get open anyway and you know he he did a nice job becoming. A relevant player on the team and even a good player on the team. To take another step from there would be a tremendous accomplishment because now we asked to be that the next workplace to get to his great player and that's a player that. Matter and especially for wide receiver who needs help to veteran games he'll have to. Elevate to that point where he makes a difference in most games Lee Evans has never done. Like that that's step I'm talking about Lee Evans has not made and he is -- nine million public play here. So Johnson has that as that to come -- always been the great players don't they have another or are you thinking about the next level to get to as a player. -- are you definitely always thinking the next level that you have to get to every year. You know you'd try to accomplish something every year that you have an accomplice you just have to get better is because if you don't you be out of a job. You be in the arena league or UB in the CFM. But the one thing that. I will love to see it in no there it talks about any Muslim because we always talk about Lee Evans Roscoe. CB John son Roosevelt Donna Jones. We need -- -- in. A tight in that can spread the Theo. Das will we need. And you look at -- -- tight end the relief. They have an outstanding at and we don't have war. Not war. We need its decadent Alba office tremendously. Haven't -- idea. I mean I. A guy came to mind that I saw. Yesterday two days ago in a Rose Bowl was an interest guy from Wisconsin. And 65 to -- and can run. We have an ad that says -- Mattel. So there. Good point no I mean we're talking about the note left -- may be a quarterback or whatever but man you get a tiny -- and that can run. And doesn't have to be a great blocker just being. Average blocker. Man you can you can go out of things. I think most people agree -- you do that before the third round at the earliest absolute dog rag -- and then -- then you're talking about a guy that you know may be good. Right if you're talking the middle of the draft -- But yeah -- that point's well taken and lot of good teams have that New England has a couple of guys to actually write. Two good tight ends there but there are pretty good quarterback but sort of bonus is here is bill for Thurman Thomas go ahead -- Is -- that question yes you in regards CJ Spiller. Serve and it it it appears -- terms seagate touches that he wants to go outside. Kick our returns he and -- You'd think that this guy is is that. Going to be definitely is MO -- -- he's got a room between the tackles. Can he be taught that. I'll listen and when your comments thanks. 880 run and attack that the coach coach called plays for him to run due to -- I think you know every time we've seen -- make sure everything's been outside and that's where he's best at getting outside I mean it. The with the -- fast without a doubt if you give -- -- -- -- he can make some things happen. But I think as a random bag you know you'd be got to play between the tackles and now it. And out and you know what you think about some out of plays -- -- -- -- The care Fred Jackson what for it was always runner up the middle most of plays policies they -- outside. Mean because that's what he's accustomed to but I think over time you have to be able to run a footballer of the -- Here is Scott -- Scott. More guys happy new year here. We've heard earlier about you know obviously. And Larkin in lacquer and I'll quarterbacks would lose whose project and will expect it to be. You don't like these that he thought the and then directly about outside linebacker in the draft I was just curious originals and they look for traffic. That's all over the Internet I -- -- got three or four months before that -- comes one player on the defense line that some people seem to think has a chance to be picked first. In the draft is -- fairly. From Auburn he's defense of tackle. Defense event it's not a great year there was a guy at North Carolina is his name Quinn. That Tom was kicked off the team not a great year for the edge but but the thing about nick from Barbara and is that. Com. I have. -- on their it and this season everyday. No he complained afford three -- 34. You know he's one of those kind of hybrid type -- linebacker defense of me -- -- guys. So you know obviously with happening guy like that you can move around he's someone that has a chance at this early stage and it's safe to say as much. Fluctuation is there will be as a chance to be picks ahead of the bills or you know is a contender for that Iran could be a second guy coming out on. Here is Joe next go ahead Joe. Very happy new year ago almost permanent icons they pushed -- the -- -- -- the hall of Famer. Number well and I want to thank you for everything you've -- for the troops in the city of ball below my question is we're going to -- are actually going to be this time next year. Where what do you think of everything goes correctly. Look at a team target date may hate me now. -- -- -- -- It's too early detail but. I understand what you're talking about I think give you have all these draft -- youngest of freeagent theater can make a difference. I think some of the games that -- lost measured it gonna want. So you've taken one -- issue an apartment go to one. For 67. It's I think that's safe -- -- fair to say they also got blown out. Four time port times but I think that will be a positive thing that appeal process they and then. And to maybe. Uniform Norway is on what they do -- would accomplish this year. Yeah I think so I mean if you're talking about a big jump forward if you do that but you're also talking about another. Season. Ending in -- -- way out playoffs loyalists say everything you can't they got to make the playoffs there you can't be degrading them. Don't know and that's and that's just what. That doesn't mean anything -- like I Jemison and users there's always hope because there's always been a team analyzed ten years as he says. This went from worst to first. Yes so and you know this year I thought -- team would be the Kansas City Chiefs you on it and they just made me today. Are not in great form right now at all Oakland Oakland and San Diego certainly San Diego but we think Baltimore. -- think Baltimore would break those three AFC west teams that day. Had a choice would play in round one San Diego. On the road saint opener Kansas City they might put Kansas City third. -- -- council right now. He picked the wrong time I was worst -- yet. Yesterday well this week would be the way to the and now looking at Ray Lewis then it really. Finishing games act can be end. Try otherwise going to Florida Kansas city's been the best rushing team in the league their number one in the league before yesterday at least for yesterday interesting game I don't. I don't know Baltimore about it Baltimore probably rather play the chiefs in the chargers not that they have any say in this spot. They might they might have gotten a break. Even the colts but there were looking at a possible game with the colts that they avoided through the ravens. But -- data -- Thurman Thomas is here will take take a short break for the update and come back with more calls I'm -- -- opened this is WGR. Also the 2004 bills a little bit will do that lots of people on hold about -- since we've mentioned this already -- A quick word from you if you if you don't mind on. What when you were playing and headed to the playoffs with the bills this week would be like if you've got through the regular season. And you found out who you're going to play -- how it's all going to ago. How is you what do you remember about this today or these this little time here between and the regular season and the playoffs. We had a bye week. I wanted to played Atlanta's game. No matter what but Marv didn't let -- as a figure that you know what. We're gonna be -- a week. My eyes bug of some really really good football and and as they out there and try to play in trying to win I was -- Did it the other way but. I I look at that I'd look at the pictures yesterday. Innocent -- you off there about it. And they were up fourteen and nothing. And Belichick put the second string quarterback is his lawyer right Heathrow passing came into the game and they put Tom Brady back in. To finish a game like all the way through the third quarter down right in all the way but yes yes -- to go all the way but. Belichick knows the importance of it still have an get timing down even though you're gonna miss a week still got to play used to got to put Brit now you look at that just don't know and. You plan next week. Mean yeah sure you know what you risk taking and -- didn't injury but they have -- they were freaking week. It's every week and you play next week you should be out their plan. I just think that that add to. Really helps the players. And it helps head coach. Nolan then okay. My boats were gonna play when you did have a buy what would you do for these like this first week -- take a few days off. Ali yeah there be a few days to relax you you take a few days off and you know what you prepare. For whatever team you think. You might play right you might try some different stuff in practice that might work you go look at film of some of the stuff that. Worked again it's whatever team you might be plan and you look at you try to evaluate that way. That game so yeah I mean this of the week -- you put essence of their probably could benefit judo and playoffs. But you know what but most importantly he still try to work when you're timing. The plays that you ran well right you you try to continue to do I'm gonna try to ask you about one specific example can move on that your. How you remember this or how well you remember it but in 1990. Now you'd beaten Miami. To clinch the division with frank Reich. The had a game Washington that you probably didn't play and and then you had the -- in the game for that week was Miami vs Kansas City. The wild card game the Kansas City Chiefs had a field goal at the end to win it they missed. So you played Miami -- that they're there was decided. Bills who had just had this great season and Miami and also had a great season you just played the for the division title. At that moment you knew. It was going to be Miami again here right in the playoffs. That familiar yeah yeah not a bear from there from which you I think knowing you I'm guessing you would have been thrilled. That it was the dolphins again. -- -- daughter of -- dads. Were probably take him as a lot of players were probably agent. We want the dolphins to come back to appear in January. That was the -- -- I mean if you talk about Kansas City a political weather down in helping Kansas City but if you're talking playoffs you're talking about the of managed yet. You want the dolphins went and you got snow that debt and we got -- that worked out all right you know that's cool 4434. -- One of my favorite time -- the stadium probably my number one time except for the winter classic being a test of that game just were here this is amazing. And it was a great game -- to work site you're going back before and it was snowing but it wasn't super cold or miserable to sit through either cal guard Erica. Held garner now garner would he do he force the home fumble on the kickoff return. The next play under contest now. That McCain's game. Aren't noise how's -- rich go -- rich. You know birdie short term or vote whatever -- -- -- -- -- group includes everyone. Looked at a picture. -- -- -- Carolina is so bad debt. It you can peace. Clot in Egypt. That. Sure undisputed. -- only receiver they dispute -- Williams was all year Japanese -- was a portion of the year. Some are right I don't understand anyway it. I am not third first round pick in a quarterback when you invested a lot of money in a second topic clot. -- is better clubs. I put it would create. A mixed early or. Any other player other end -- I don't quarterback -- street. Spent a federal pick. Right now the bills are better quarterback in the Carolina Panthers but I mean what you're saying is logical I think you'd probably have to say that. Some other reason people are expecting that is because they know people are reporting it for a reason they're not just guessing at it. Looking at Carolina's roster but the thing about that is Carolina's going to undergo some changes the coaches out. And just what they do. Or what -- wanna do relief is probably just starting now to be figured out and some of the people doing the figuring aren't even in place yet plus. What happens with block we don't even though he's going to be eligible. So all look the bottom line answer for me would be. What what differences and make what kind of talk -- is I mean none of the real decision making. Has begun. And you know just trying to figure out myself like anybody would wanna do what he's likely to happen. You know I I just look at the people who are in the middle of it and many of them say there's no way you can't take this player. So that's good enough for me. Right good enough who has a Denver tumors that are. There. Is some stuff but I have no idea from Rome. Yes that's one. Of the controller. I I think though night. I just get frustrated a lot with draft talk because. Who really knows anything right now we're just talking like we know all this stuff we don't it's phony. But it will be interesting this year compared to other years. Obviously the pixel worldly. And you've got a quarterback there when you've got a couple other quarterbacks who will. Certainly merit consideration in the you've got a cornerback from LSU the people like. Peterson is his name really. You've got a wide receiver from Georgia that people think is great. And then you've got a couple defense lineman so. There're there are enough guys in that conversation top three. To to make it interest thing and think about the strategy a little bit but I still think. That fans. Not saying that fans obviously gonna get to decide this but. What bills do. But I think fans would. Best case scenario not knowing much about the the players say give me the defense of linemen in the first round -- give me quarterback in the second round. At the soonest. And there should there should be one of those guys I mean there's five or six guys right quarterbacks we've talked about when one of them probably be there at whatever that is 35. Yeah I think -- I would definitely. Maybe a stake but. -- -- pro quarterback will be there in the second round four of the -- to take if they wanted to. But they are settling it don't look like the Losman pick was a little bit that you're settling for someone. Not quite as good because you think you need one that's with the loss and the ones I thought. Well I think if you don't have -- -- -- gala they have them preparing your defense of men next big second round -- -- The good news -- those so no doubt about that -- mean if you're if you're. If you're gonna run at 34. That's which unique. Unique iMac. Without a doubt. More Thurman Thomas and mean might show after this break here on WGR.
