Do you buy -- New York's only outlet -- what's -- out. It must be the regular season Jerry turned his phone off. -- or out of pre season mode and more exhibition nonsense the idea that will take off their alliance. -- Well I don't know how many bullets you wanna. Fire today. 4170 and a soft again man. What that was that was amazing. That's blow it was amazing I don't even from what I wrote today except. I felt good for bills than people think I'm some old term negative I've root against them it's like it's more fun when name when they win. Like that a good team to write about and you know given -- -- think about it sure I'll bet I could back up Wednesday. That chiefs team might -- ports five team Italy this year. But c'mon they went on the road against a team with seven and one all of -- here and they kill them. And yeah they don't as they out coached them for starters. And I caught his show in case -- less -- I don't think it was very popular there are crushing them and I'm like good that's passed up pyro and it was like they knew everything -- gonna do. And it's every every defensive move that made its attested to it. And a picture and loves -- to audio quotes from last year and defeat. When they hit some really good looks at in the second half last year long drives they should've won but it's could make throws right now we come back to fit who has now. In three of his last six road games on for what. It's like. It's little more than a fluke. Think the guys. -- we -- that's right I mean where does He rank in the league first after one week -- They did increase the number one quarter. Animal cloning makes the fun I don't know like. That the the Fitzpatrick argument as. Since the middle last year maybe earlier that conceded that He has good games there you -- three the last six or the other three in the issue I think is consistency. And I guess I'm thinking Minnesota -- one of those games. Where may be the stats are pretty ugly so. I don't know it's it's it gets harder when He keeps cronies gave -- one of those broad gains of the -- -- very good three touchdown game at Jacksonville in my amendment to but. And it's -- -- seventies or fourteen games so its numbers but it's like he's playing like at least he's a solid starter now. Yes that He is the eighteenth 25. It's getting better that's kind of my point today was like Iowa and we discussed the offense -- they gonna. Yeah right they got to give bad this year they go to computer regressed. And second year fits in Gailey is off to a report a pretty good start. Our conversation Friday part of your -- for an hour on Friday here for our Monday's. Was -- the offense I think we are in agreement like you know the defense we can see there's still almost have to be better -- the personnel moves. Make it sensible but they'll be better on defense and -- came through the offense I was worried my take a step back in the -- -- tell. But -- for -- yards touchdown passes all over the place but Andy's making plays and you know and the lying. Average -- one guy got -- onetime event. They're gonna beam they're going to be days of the line looks bad I mean just -- just not that good. But they stay healthy the big if there was this team that very deep and I've said this for years that's the -- -- a real offense to -- quarterbacks and sort on the field. He doesn't do is on the best of days -- and He had the rib thing I mean is almost like the bills' defense -- -- they just knew what the team couldn't do. The safeties have come and up. And make all kind of players have the tackles or by the three safeties in the and they just. It's just -- really have much of an answer there but give give the bills credit they prepared in there. They looked like the stronger team. Let me physically ASQ what was your sense how big of a deal for -- to beat the and how much -- just sort of downplayed it I respect that but what was your sense after the game. I think it was a big deal and it was a big deal last year I mean. He says that I knew it was a big deal last year. He fired two weeks before the season by a guy who I don't think is very popular. Down there anyway and as He said that we during the week every game's big to win but I yeah I this is the guy that's what He does for a living. And -- He was going to be the offensive coordinator Ernie had someone say it say. I'll I'll I'll -- -- the new -- isn't gonna work -- Todd Haley -- next the as Charlie Weis He -- so well it was it -- this guy yes they've put a guy. Out their call plays who has done 34 years and build New York's so. In his chain daily news if if if nothing else the guy knows little offense is pretty good call -- game. It was a humiliated humiliation of his career maybe that what happened there yet I think it was a big deal. You buy the will to show -- in his throwing a bomb so that Oakland has to think about it train spotter do you view I haven't I think what that's. You know little a little -- solemn. And we want to put fifty announced right. And and give them -- the -- I mean it's it's it's personal enemies are very competitive people now. And I think the bills that very competitive people and I'm here a lot of this chip on your shoulder thing that they. Didn't like was said about them in the pre season. They're bunch of good guys yes but there's also an edge to them now and a little more an edge that that was there before acting Merman Barnett. And that is a little more of that and some some guys getting older but He just hired Susan and I think they believed. That their preparation. And their talent. Made them better than the perception is again it's only 1 game here I am. Admitting as I always do this league invites exaggeration. -- you know twentieth thirteen I wouldn't be. Maybe talk talking quietly Jerry Kelly and emphatic I said it before I thought your column read like you you thought maybe you were all wrong about. And I'm I'm eager to hear you really clarify what you think it means yesterday because and I would not wanna do that after one game. I I wanna say that no matter what happens in a game I would wanna do it. I mean do you do you really now -- Not convinced but fairly confident that the bills are much better than last year's team or will finish with a much better record. I'm not ready to go there from and I and I I probably did feel a little like dead under sold them and that Namibia sense that. It was it was a downer for the fans who want to believe this team was okay but it it but I I've. They had a proved to me I don't think they deserve the benefit of the doubt. Much better. What I say I've underestimated. What what does that mean. They could still. The five win team 56 that's what I said and I said. That five or six if they stay healthy. You say they're morbid maybe they can. Go to seven native everybody stays -- so yes it tells me. That they can win or lose on any week it seems if if that's if if they're that good in their LT. Which is that's what people want kind of you know and they don't wanna feel like they're gonna get blown out after games like that it last year. That they're more competitive. That this team despite not having recognized stars as a little better tell level. Than giving him credit for yet and I I don't like be wrong so that's what makes this so it'll it'll. -- want them to lose it'll want to know I wanna have a pretty good. Objective critical view of them. At the address made him a little bit and wealthy but they could go lose this next game I mean there is -- -- And always handle a lot of the same feel. I think plan that plan bad teams and -- lean people believe they were they were better than they were so it. A mom I am worried about going too much the other way because -- -- two -- -- one and 3 AM -- be saying you know that's the NFL. Watch out for one game. -- thinking about 2003 more than 2008. With those first two games they blew out new England and then Jacksonville. But again like the season religious stop their for the 2008 to resonate that the discussion was are these winds legit. And yesterday was just more emphatic. And that the chiefs while maybe not being really good. Have a little bit more credibility than Seattle or the rams and those teams did 2008 the raider game they won they barely -- no I think this. This just like -- -- -- the raiders coming year. For the the second. At CB it was the third game here they went to Jacksonville -- the total 2008 early in the season -- -- the raiders this year the bills I think the better. How what happens any kind of win. Works. For keeping the conversation going and then putting the spotlight on the patriot game as the real. Measure of just you know how how much better are they. Then we might have thought you know last year's team almost beat Casey and Casey was probably better last year than now mean that seems pretty easy to say right now. So the raider game any kind of win two and oh New England comes and that's really interest. I think -- and it is very interest in this second best running team and the league last year and they beat Casey twice. At their best they were probably a better team they've had some losses no more awesome law. But obvious indices. That running game stacks up against the bills. Course -- another quarterback who you wonder about his ability. They they they get to the edge and it and that's. Looking ahead to doing I just remember what would head. To them last year a guy who's not -- -- but wouldn't He get the edge against them in bowl games like a thirty yard touchdown. I believe this defense healthy now after scene yesterday and the best moments of pre season is not gonna have. Problems that extent where teams -- just beat him to the gadget guy will miss. Miss an assignment. And he's gone they were good yesterday about how much of an answer we get on that I'd -- the jury's still kind of out like I predict they'll be better. And they were good enough yesterday but the -- listed them a lot of favors by. Not settling for field goals getting touched down when they needed to and get the score lopsided enough that came -- city wasn't able to just do what they do. In other words like if it's a closer game next week you might get a true sense of how good or bad but bills' run defense. Together got a couple plays to the edge from the six point oh is misleading but there were couple plays they broke we thought in those linebackers still have a density of beat around there. But I guess that's to me a lot of it's about -- in this finally a guy who was picked very high. You think is gonna be really good and as I said let's wait he's still rookie but. He seemed to make a difference in that game mean as tackles but every. And big guys that played defensive line don't have them want to tackle stats to have an impact I don't think Kyle Williams tackle this. But as things go on upfront that lead to believe they're not going to be. Horrible defensively and people of -- and they might move up to a round average and then that that helps model helps the offense and and vice Versa but the tight -- thing yesterday. Was that -- shock to you. As -- -- people -- thing Chan Gailey really felt He needed the tight end and I thought some that was matchups but you know I mean you. And you run and four wide you can you can take advantage of safety problems but He did it with you know with a tight -- And in the just very well all lose and lose and very early really hurt them He sees it -- athlete back there. So. That's just another thing for teams have to worry about. Which makes it very interesting. Sides. I was so impressed with with the way the offense function in passing game this probably. Didn't right now by the defense but I kind of continue combo on what we've been -- -- in the requirements in the off the offense was to me and an issue Iowa wanted to see if they could you know. Get back into more of the things they did at their best. They like 05 games not score seventy points but it did last year it. Well I think. And it's a good start. But that that my that New England defense tonight to look past Oakland their. A pretty good this year. This league is crazy it was and it. I mean how many and we know a pretty good. We noted earlier I heard there have been there will find out that I mean their problem Miami they added they have a lot of pieces David Young players. Who they've drafted to a really good looks it looks like they're pasteurized and can fix that. It's crazy lady now once again that. This so much that goes on the middle and back to what bills fans just want hope is that they're back to be in. A team in the middle rather than one of the worst -- -- sixth. Foot. -- back then I think that point right there I think is the only conclusion I'm ready to draw from yesterday and even just that may still be a little risky. But knowing how -- looked and just. Other teams that were talked or talked about -- Seattle that I don't think impressed you know that you know the bad scenes are supposed to be. He was it was that yesterday it was that the bills like Gailey said first thing. That I remember him here -- -- saying yesterday was I think the people who thought we were gonna be really bad were not. And that's about what I draw from yesterday's game two I don't know what to say here in this conversation like. What the patriots look like what the raiders look like how useful the tight end is. I'm thinking a lot about how they they might have a really good by having Stevie Johnson in here in seen him talk about. -- the youth on the team and people talking about them being bigger all this stuff. I don't have anything to add to it like I just need more than one game. A about a third of which was just walk through. -- to really talk about. But are they are they getting Andrew Luck. Probably not I think I think maybe that's still unsafe but that's alright that I'll get that much from yesterday I think they're probably not getting Andrew Luck. Although their. I think is a big deal a lot of people to not be really bad the the wage Gailey said -- -- that not to. Sanction lowered expectations but they were really bad here aren't particularly bad this year may mean the fact that I probably said it's him not winning game. -- -- -- Yes over -- the story today because. The better than I thought they were going to be. And to just move into that middle area I do you wanna go back to 79 do you wanna start picking thirteen to fifteen range again -- long. As they do well hey if they don't stop there that's the niche like I gotta -- probably seven and nine up a point well as long as I don't -- buy -- house this year. Yes couldn't keep moving yet you move the media to keep your -- players signed -- -- contract extensions stabilizer quarterback situation. You unum U image you can keep moving forward. The -- going to be ready to sign up if you're if you're gonna stop at seven and -- of another step package of retooling again and don't bother. It to me it's like false hope that but it if you move forward and then keep going like leave. Seven and nine bill and take up residence in were gonna going to end game now than by going seven year. Mean I don't know and that of course but that's been their problem those mediocrity years wouldn't be so bad if they interstate there. The reason is yours. You -- not be there forever and they -- for proper. And if they get to that point maybe. We should hold their feet to the fire ants and now it is a tackle and off its attack on the close by a million a year maybe next the quarterback Bogut. Or maybe this I don't -- how -- this nominated at the I was and pay people I'm a little surprised wired that. Stevie Johnson and this -- talks going out of the back I've heard through channels that they -- that Steve would be the first. When I was talking about fits a month ago on -- -- Iowa for Stevie. If there's no Stevie that means is no offense is certainly no Fred. Read my column tomorrow because you know happy time is still here but I cannot. You know when -- issues there I'm I'm manager jump right back on you how long is it going to be happy locker room -- with chip on the shoulder. If the three best offensive players include the two captains -- him back. A example the.
