I love all those opens but that one gets it because. Who's the big man has a little man Jack that's an island where the we're the best big man little they want to punch whose big man little. Well I'm a little all. All eyes are very mean Jack -- check it out as I can be the big man there too. The mention them. -- have. -- -- perspective on the sabres just a couple of minutes gonna talk with bill hobby he covers the team for the only at times herald and the Niagara gazette. In the meantime we'll also take your phone calls at 8030550. An 88550. To 550. College basketball games going on today. Big one tonight the dome. Syracuse taking on Marquette now again Marquette team that beat Syracuse twice last year including. Ending their season in the NCAA tournament. So the number one team in the country the undefeated Syracuse Orange little revenge on their mind as they take on Marquette tonight at 4 o'clock this afternoon I should say. At the carrier to. West Virginia is up on Georgetown right now 3127. For all -- other big east fans and. -- they lose at temple big upset the other night now they're at Georgia Tech to either only up five at halftime duke does it is a lot of people. Really had mpeg this year looks like. Also another team not quite as good as people had mpeg. Buffalo Sabres were talking about what ails them today now we bring in another. Person who covers the deeper than from the Niagara gazette in the only at times herald bill -- bill thanks for joining us on sports talk Saturday. It. Well you're assessment of. The team and where shake up mode is that right now to date they need to pull the trigger now are you in the camp of I am so willing to give it a little bit of time. Get some of these guys healthy and see what happens before the trade deadline. Well obviously they haven't. They haven't at cortina Italy and that that's you know -- -- it -- -- an -- -- excuse but to -- -- -- Julian. They do have a point there and you solid slightly. Was it entirely in my irritable and looked at those but I think. It reached a point here they got to do something very very Crocker picking I know they're only five point will play out stop but there are bad that we. Some kind of following -- -- completely in my opinion so I think they're the point. That they have to make a trade and it's kind of gets them. And that we -- here. Is there any -- is there anybody that you would consider. Untouchable in your mind on this roster. Yeah. Now there are some I would say -- probable outcome Hispanic Tyler Myers obviously. And even a break in the embassy. Should probably be untouchable but beyond that. No I think. I mean these guys 4567. Years here a lot of them and setting where they want -- 1 march or anything so. I think it's probably kind of you know -- the -- a little bit. Ryan Miller your assessment of -- would you be willing to move and obviously he wasn't on your list. Yeah I I would -- to keep that act of local and I think what the united game -- it was the best political belief in the world. But you know we're seven years into -- and he has that they have a lot of playoff series and it's gonna be five years now and and the secret -- -- playoff losses for. Ryan -- cluster Ray Emery. To rest. And Brian Boucher in the circle and he supposedly better than and I think -- this season he's having this year having a bad -- I mean. There's no other way to say it and I think. -- you're going to kind of a diamond doesn't think would look at what what illness and are made -- -- book. Where would you Bill -- bill hobby the only time -- matter is that he covers the Buffalo Sabres. Where would you put. More of the blame as far as -- in windy because obviously we get a lot of calls people wanna see windy out you wanna see Darcy outs and we want ball so they want one -- the other. Without saying -- they would. Getting rid of them where do you put more of the blame on the personnel side -- Darcy or the system side with -- -- or if it's a question that's what a lot of people want to know. Prepped properly Eric cheated on you because he's. He stuck to -- -- he's he's one look at the players and he he stepped up these guys longer than most. GM look one thing I always point to look at the flyers players came within a couple into the Stanley Cup. Just pregnant three years ago he beat the sabres in the first round last year and they expect -- kind of blew up they treated their captain Mike Richards they've treated. Just heard who the forty goal scorer and they they they changed -- -- -- -- yet been willing to do and you know now they have a lot of playoff series and try to years. What about the Anaheim situation looks like gets laughed. Perry Ryan Hall or one of them or whatever could be available. Where do you think those guys would fit in with this team and who would you like to target you could have your choice of those guys. -- my right. I think they -- do well anywhere. Probably get slept for a period obviously first. But the but the question with. That they figure this actresses who is this papers. That the ducks would want at this point. Assuming -- portrait and a compartment -- those kind of guys. They really in it expect interest effort and go. Your separate the world. Exactly fourteen million and a four year deal. I think it take Derek where at this point. That that question and others who wood chips to the sabres had to get these. I don't think it's gonna AKA would cost more than prospects would cost more than a the cashier and a couple of guys down there. The -- that's possible to the if you can. Cynical something regular sect Caspian an effort stronger and you can get Corey -- -- someone I think you do that by the question is is that deal out there and I. I'm not sure this. What do you expect for the team going forward tonight especially coming home after last night's game getting back after to get another team -- where. This is a team they should beat the Winnipeg jets and they have them in their own arena police -- struggled this year obviously what do you expect out of the team tonight. Pollution beat them but of course and that you could get that report ahead of them and I hit the -- that is probably one of the worst teams in the league. But I mean tonight. Eat you never know you're gonna get the sabres I mean he expects that it would be a game that they come out more -- -- believing in the you know they went for a walk on or something but. It is we've seen they just sit at home that there are mixed bag to get up he's terrible starts that -- that inferior supposedly inferior -- And the bishop and it's just stop the local season and I thought. It'll eat you see that happening in October and November you think maybe your outlook will look at replicates -- now here we are. In January and are terrible all -- it would -- -- games. So I expect that they expect that they should probably win maybe -- treated to something like that but then you never know. Bill -- covers the sabres for the only time -- and I agrees that thanks a lot for joining us in sports talk Saturday it's an imminent. Yeah no problem. The Winnipeg jets a team he said I pegged for last in the league I think a lot of people that nobody really expected this team to do much. Here they are the sabres are looking up at them in the CMX. -- 43 point buffalo forty points. Buffalo five points out of a playoff spot but interestingly enough. The Winnipeg jets. Won I believe six -- could be wrong. Little trivia for Matt what's plaguing near the jets one of six nicknames. In the NFL NHL Major League Baseball the MBA shared by two of the teams across sports the jets are one of six I believe. Can you name a couple others here -- It got really get what you write little gave her body out there there out tonight about the tailgate tent party like you know what if you get these have I want of these Labatt blue lights. The jets he got the Winnipeg jets in New York Jets and football obviously. I didn't prepare for this I know you get -- put you on the spot and put you on the spot about your favorite baseball team. Oh shortly Arizona Cardinals and saint Lowe's card and I'm gonna need hands OK okay -- -- Our team another team in baseball that has gone to the World Series two years in a row. The blue jays now. They did go to the well I mean the last two on the Rangers -- New York Rangers Texas Rangers so obviously we had jets Rangers cardinal to talk about. Six team nickname I believe they're six and we can correct me that. Our share amongst professional major sports teams. No but another cat. A team in the NFL and it's very very good Carolina Panthers with the Florida Panthers -- -- -- in hockey -- -- And what are you you should've got railway that people he talks now how about. Let's go East Coast football with West Coast baseball giants there again giant's New York Giants have a -- and I think the toughest one verbally because. Whoever thinks about the Sacramento Kings. True -- in a way to think ideally king's road -- about I always call on the Rochus or Roy. The Sacramento Kings liking so there you go. Win some in tonight from your body you're out hanging around the tailgate tent or wherever you may be watching the game hang out. Six road teams who shared nickname with -- other pro sports teams in one of the four majors. Don't be tweet me about while you forgot this one in major lacrosse. Or soccer or whatever on top in. NHL. NBA. NFL. Major League Baseball he got. The kings Sacramento and LA got the jets Winnipeg in New York yet the Rangers Texas in New York. Boy New York -- three of the cardinals. Arizona and Saint Louis Panthers Carolina -- Florida and of course the giants in new York and San Francisco. I'm the same one about all the ones -- when I can go through now but we do next week all the names -- don't and an ass heat jazz prequel to Red Sox went. Should -- be buys and supplies and he had is is that the is that is -- improper plural. Short for a herd of -- I think -- I think it is they're just like fishing gear. In Fisher Fisher right -- an app pages exactly they're not be yours now -- freedom. 30550 you wanna jump on this very very topical relevant discussion. 88552. By fifty takes -- to the hobby for joining us here on the program let's go through a few more of York knicks. For the. WGR. Playoffs. Hash tag that EGR offs. We got a few have you tweeting me your picks. I have got -- to touch without Twitter hash tag to heat your playoffs here we go we got. Ian who says Cincinnati Pittsburgh New Orleans and Atlanta we got bowed -- dot. -- -- Saints giants Steelers and Texans all. He says all home teams now that is not home team the Steelers are on the road there at Denver all the favorites maybe the Steelers are on the route. Western new Yorker. Like the name on Twitter bagel saints giants Steelers we got Eric who goes by the name metal trooper. He does I'll be very surprised at any except Houston lose egos used in Pittsburgh New York Giants New -- just like we do as well. So there you have in all finally come in the -- earlier. Mike and Mike says Houston Norman's -- the -- I think it's pretty unanimous out there with a lot of you what you're sick. Pittsburgh. Let's start with -- -- one again Houston over since -- And they got. Pittsburgh. Tonight New Orleans over Detroit tomorrow the giants shortly and then finally Pittsburgh. Over Denver out we got the arena tonight watching the games I won't be on the watch a lot of that. New Orleans Detroit game until I get home a little bit later lot going on tonight. I got Syracuse basketball for I get the ten at five we got sabers at seven we got NFL playoffs at 438. To great -- you're the only thing missing. The bills in the playoffs. We'll talk a little more Buffalo Bills football on the other side this break we'll give you my thoughts about. Position analysis -- go through some of the positions my thoughts going forward. As this team hits the offseason and I have a list of all of the free agents for the Buffalo Bills restricted and unrestricted. I'll tell you I think they should keep. -- I think they should let go. -- also making news citing several freeagent. We'll talk about that as well you're listening to sports -- Saturday. Are so out of my -- -- WGR. Sean Payton Jim Schwartz. Their two teams getting ready to head. Take on each other -- a game that I expect a lot of points be scored tonight wild card weekend. We -- of wild wild card games over the years of course we know all too familiar. A couple of them in buffalo one great. Biggest comeback one not so great home run through so those both occurring on wild card weekend. Lot of points in this -- probably it's 59 have a -- -- naked go over that pretty easily I think both teams could score into the thirties in the the saints who outing in the fifties. When they're playing against that deep entry we Detroit's given points. The BBB a compass bowl I think that's what's called going on right now. Seven nothing I was upset and I think SNU. But the -- and saw the score -- luggage at a score -- that a second and Matt I'm really preoccupied with the fact that. Today is Saturday. What they -- the seventh. And -- Monday. The ninth. Is my wife's birthday so I need some suggestions. I was wondering if you could help me out here on the air she might be listening to but can you help me out like a regular. And really well you know I've heard some advertisements for some special gold coins they say there's only so many left Seoul may be used got a chance to get him by the weekend. Habits of us marshals order the user where they would like him for a well see if I can find the ads yeah yeah you order them with a phone and their commemorative of some OK I don't know what they commemorate the commemorates something. And that seems like that would be important that could be it. -- -- just with a flower -- -- flower kind of girl you know so. Gold is good doubles always -- I don't forget it sure sure -- got me trouble that he -- she -- think that listening on -- -- That's I want you could also get her Matt Darby Jersey. -- possibly chair I think that they had Stevie Johnson enters tobacco and -- -- local stores that means at all. Hopefully that doesn't come directly from the top now exactly exactly that being said Stevie Johnson is a free agent this year here are some other Buffalo Bills reagents. Haven't talked much about. The firing of George Edwards and Dave Wannstedt taking over as defense according -- argue that get to that a second. Let's talk about some of the Irish restricted and unrestricted free -- the bills are going to have to make decisions on. Buddy -- will address the media Monday. And I'm sure we'll be asked about several these of course most notably. Stevie Johnson one note here again what -- remind everybody who seems that -- lot of people seem to think that Fred Jackson the freeagent he's not. He's under contract for another year. He wants his contract redone and extended. Before next year is up and according to him buddy nix has given him his word. That's where that's what he's not a freeagent. These players are free agents first of all. Three offensive -- if you count garrison Sanborn as offensive -- obviously is a long snapper but he is -- lineman by trade. Chad Wright are -- and Sam Moore and Craig -- make all restricted free agents I expect all -- to be tendered in get offers and come back to the Buffalo Bills. And they need and they need that often declined. But. Demetrius Bell -- topic to tackle that unrestricted free agent don't be surprised -- the bills let him walk he's had a lot of injuries. He's really been able to stay on the field consistently they they bounce on the they'd like -- Chris Hairston. In less negative can get a really reduced rate Demetrius Bell and they don't even know they be hitched a -- I think -- -- probably. Gone from the Buffalo Bills but. Would the office of life situation the way it is with a little bit detonated it might wanna bring them back but probably could go want to get another guy they feel more confident can stay healthy. -- and Scott Chandler guide you probably a lot back -- the year he had. One of the first times that this team is at a threaten a wild -- imposition at least in the red zone. Got a lot of touchdowns for a bills' tight end in a lot of yards was really great. From -- it's one neighbor always seem to get in the end zone this team he had quite a few those running back Tashard Choice and the only reason. You might keep him around as if you'd think that this projects and situation could go sour you wanna see where that winds up. But overall Tashard Choice obviously you don't need him. At running back we have Jackson's thriller but they do need a third guy they had white last year we'll see what they do which is -- choice and obviously. Chan Gailey likes him because of their relationship Reggie Corner don't expect him back all 88 -- Reggie Corner. Linebacker Andra Davis some mixed feelings on him. Sure he's a guy you really wanna move forward with. Moving to a 43 possibly Dave Wannstedt taking over -- think the line backing core has to kind of be altered a little -- Derek -- And Casey Derek -- showed so pretty well. At the end of the season I like his -- seem like he was developing a good report right it's Patrick I'd like -- come back. In training camp next year to see. Exactly what he can do fighting for spot. One of the spots could be vacant by Stevie Johnson we've gone over here -- go to WGR -- Him and his contract situation the Joba scaly -- wrote broke down we talked about him here many times we will going forward. Kicker Ryan Lindell there's one guy it's probably been. Look at is that why you gotta -- -- Ryan -- because of the situation the -- they brought in Dave Rayner. -- -- These guys not. They're not Ryan and I think Joba -- also kicked for eBay. He may have the right rebels got to come back you know might cost you a little more than you wanna spend to keep a kicker. But he's for he's -- pretty valuable for this organization. Or the last several years especially this year I think. You never know which haven't told -- And that was the case Ryan -- this year. Ruvell Martin. Complacent special teams and not really that. It fascinated by bringing Ruvell Martin back. He's another guy can throwback in that wide receiver next. I'd much rather have rational person rebel -- beard do you think Roscoe still provides a very good punt returner he also provide some into the slot receiver spot at the bills wanna use here's a thing about Roscoe. She really loves Roscoe Parrish. But he is hurt all the time. Last two years and Lester put what one genie is out you before that done for the year after a few games. After they started using in the correct way I think Roscoe -- to be very able very valuable asset to this offense but he's just hurt too often. So I'd like to bring him back we'll see where that stands. Much more and I'd rather -- -- -- come back. Kirk Morrison. Like. What you thought it would this year a mop up time and linebacker got some time. It is a guy that you know he's got a good work ethic he's good he's good in the locker -- you'll like him we'll see. Dave -- kicker now because you bring wind and lot Ryan Lindell back hopefully. Bryon Scott now he's an interest in case -- -- -- kind of I am not really. Again fascinate about saying -- you got you'll bring Brian Scott back but he can help put a good game had a the last game of the year it's doing and played pretty well. He can be used in the box he's kind of one of those versatile safeties which -- the Vatican is also replaceable. Jurors Byrd is back there George Wilson's back there -- Brian Scott has a huge role at this team but he's serviceable he's pretty good. I'm okay it would bring them back but not any huge price. The Reggie Torbor the other linebacker like I said linebackers here. We'll see how the bill's approach the offseason I think a lot depends on the state 34 -- 43 which most people expect them to do go for three. And I do too. The bills have some. Signings. Earlier this week. We'll get to those a second a breakdown and I read some of those to you but. I know some questions about next year's schedule the opponents in next year's the year this team's gonna win. Nine games take that next step -- -- six go to nine or maybe even ten. It has to be because of the schedule next year playing the NFC West. End playing the -- self. Two divisions of the bills can match up with these teams and went. The home schedule not exactly a who's -- opponents not exactly schedule that screams buy tickets right now. Kansas City comes to town. Case you didn't hear the news earlier today it looks like Romeo canal will get that job full time. Jacksonville comes to town another team with a new head coach. They're gonna hire somebody Jack Del -- out Tennessee comes to town. Seattle the return of martial which possibly to create. The St. Louis Rams on the bubble they have a new head coach possibly Jeff Fisher Miami Dolphins they have a new head coach possibly job this year. New England the jets obviously. You're always teams go to buffalo that might have new head coaches -- new head coaches next year bills -- a very good opportunity to play football next year against these teams and win some games away. Always the barn burner -- at Cleveland. Oh yeah the best games ever I'm sure you're willing getting you're going to be waiting in line for those tickets in Cleveland waiting in line to seldom Houston. Gotta go there that's tough. At Indianapolis who's it going to be maiden -- Peyton Manning Andrew Luck is going to be -- maybe the third straight could be made as well at Arizona. At CN -- now -- -- I think that the team that he could go either way you go out last and it can happen when you play those kind against girls to get blown out a situation like that. They can play with a team like Arizona. Sampras gonna be tough playing is Donte -- that physical team. When Jim Harbaugh -- done this year very good job and of course again you have the AFC east opponents. Over those of you screaming again we'll go over or Mort I am I said this several weeks in a row -- say it will more time. The reason Seattle's coming to buffalo again this year. And the those are going to Arizona again this year when you probably flip flop was because of a rule made by the NFL which dictates. The two places you can travel to in the same season if you're playing the Western Conference western division teams. So since the bills cannot go to Saint Louis and -- and senior. Saint -- comes back. Next year and I point out don't think funny and just ran across forget John Rogers there via ESPN's lead story right now is. Colts to draft law. With number one pick sources say. My true. My to my sources said the same thing and so noted everyone else's who have watched one. Ounce of football all year while you. Sources say sources didn't need to say because on the -- anyway okay go on New York Times tomorrow sources say the sun will rise. John and Rochester red necks and WG. They sell it be happy new year idea being YouTube's. You know -- -- right Fitzpatrick okay this spirit often -- I and I'm not a superstitious guy but. -- there after about three games of -- that we lost I think. You know psychologically I think it would change may be his. It is karma is maybe the maybe the team -- Haluska and it disappointed. That he -- do that governor. Lot of I'm I'm not much into the the beard caused him to play well or the beard cause them to play poorly. You know I mean I think those are things that we deal and where reaching her excuses and reasons to figure out how this thing went so RI John you know. Let's that's what he did I think -- group appeared last year. It responds to changing his blocker or -- he's -- streaker whatever he had gone for awhile lecture but -- -- Is it that the issue but you know. I'm I'm really interested in Dave wants is -- seen me how he uses it sent the musical let. First is with Georgia -- Once. You know coach. Coach the -- -- -- -- that support either the cult leader at least some want to Balkans bills and was very successful winery. -- any music six he was successful Miami running the defense as well. Right end and. From what I recall he and -- what he used the little letter that they're really disappointed me this year with Edwards. And some people saying mean and we didn't have the personnel to two -- But man. Just Brit watch -- Brady stand back there was sick. John that those defense is in Dallas if you remember back when there when he symbols those defenses. Where some of the fastest defense is that I can remember -- they were really built on speed sideline to sideline in getting to the quarterback this. This defense doesn't have that particular kind of speed. But I do think that you need a little bit of ball you got to tweak scheme any got to get better players so I think it's gonna be separate bowl. Like I told you last week that this team has tried to blitz they tried earlier this year read most notably remember the jets game and Plaxico came up with a big catch in the sidelines. That was publicly tried didn't work out so while they try to. I am interested as well I'm not I -- different about Dave Wannstedt getting the job done and here's why. I'm finally getting the job I'm all the way to get much chance but the issue I have is sometimes. When -- that -- in a unit. -- fresh mind and a fresh eyes to commit and reevaluate the talent to try to something different so I'm okay with the move. But I'm not in love with -- either. The -- I'm gonna learn media outlet George Edwards do his thing he got a wasn't trying to beat the east of genocide like a little bit not to be too critical or very over -- open. That's the case because. If he contributed to the defense one that may -- in deep trouble. Well we'll see what happens John -- up the phone -- and a happy new year to you as you said. Real quickly Dave Wannstedt did pick up one of his former linebackers that -- earlier this week Scott. -- -- -- that I say his name correctly. He was a captain at the -- at university Pittsburgh defense some -- up playing experience had an injury he'll be coming back also bill signed wide receiver David coney. Also linebacker Robert Atkins who was with the team earlier. Defensive back prince Miller defensive and Garrett Jake -- -- Leo and dark Keith Williams -- the bill signing these players futures contracts. -- all go to camp. The trying to fight for spots the bills now just trying to get. Some extra bodies in their fight for competition. I don't think any of these signings don't read anything into what it means or Stevie Johnson or what it means for another free -- that doesn't mean anything to try to create competition. It's a year round business trying to get these guys in in the under contracts they can be ready to get to camp to fight for positions and that's exactly what's happening we'll find out more. From buddy -- as he speaks to the media. On Monday we'll find out more from -- how who's got sports got a lot of games going on right now in college basketball we also a big college football game Monday night. To get to that we come back at this time -- Matt Keller got sports I -- to touch you this is sports stocks Saturday at WGR. Much more of John Murphy you'll be hearing. Coming from him Buffalo Bills play by play man here on WGR as we move into the 2012. Buffalo bills' season and that is because this is the new radio home for the Buffalo Bills at a time radio WGR Sports Radio 550. Terrific terrific news for all of us here we're so glad to have them aboard. So Mac dollar -- during the break and we have some breaking news here about the NFL -- not surprising though surprising. We got force Andre -- a finalist in the bottom fifteen or would have been the top fifty. But he finally they got seventeen right. Is it seventy how well you're right fifteen but two senior finals that's witness right right the modern D'Amato guys fifteen now. But that being said Steve tasker not among. The list I'm looking at it right now now and also he's got to go up against Tim Brown Chris Carter again shoots it's always tough but here's the thing about that. The last few years Tim Brown Chris Carter -- injury of all. Proceeded to this point they've -- it's -- Andre always gets more votes he always gets into the last round. He won't be the one to go in before them I believe because that the it's like the voters change the same voters. There's -- what a lot more momentum for him there's a lot more appealing for him to get -- The those other guys I think they're all famers but this is the year Roger I predict Andre we'll get in the -- tell you why. This year the the overall. Class of fifteen is a lot weaker than year's -- over a second but starting next year. There are some major. Major heavyweights. Who are coming up for hall of -- and try and guys like Michael Strahan. Guys like Warren -- Guys like Jonathan Ogden. Mean these guys are all gonna be on the same ballot start to be tough to get it. He gets in this year so just over just announced the seventeen. Hall of fame NFL hall fame finalists to senior nominees -- got. Angela please really on the web you can read it but anyway here we got Jerome Bettis. Remember him as a rams and Steelers running back he has advanced on before this point Tim Brown we just said. His name Chris Carter so they go Browning Carter. There -- -- at setter with the Steelers from 19882000. Owner Eddie DeBartolo junior on the -- -- the 49ers throughout all those doubles. Chris dormant. Played with the niners falcons. And the vikings. Most notably played with the Minnesota Vikings for quite awhile defensive end and linebacker. Very good career good player Kevin Greene set master. Played with the rams went to the Steelers. To Super Bowl the Steelers. Played the Carolina if there's an niners and his career good player Charles -- this guy was it like every Super Bowl like ten years team. -- he played with the niners in the cowboys. They played like six holes or something to be -- one odd moment. Cortez Kennedy defensive tackle at the Seattle Seahawks for eleven seasons. Curtis Martin running back played for New England. Went to the jets he's a Parcells guy had a couple of good years to wait on anyone up finishing up the jets had a very good career as a running back. Speaking of Parcells he is -- -- Bill Parcells -- -- New York Giants 1983 to 1990. Many with the patriots and of course the jets and wound up with the cowboys. Most recently was in the front office of the Miami Dolphins are very don't Andre -- wide receiver of the Buffalo Bills and in his career. The Washington Redskins we don't like to recognize that here. Willie -- tackle. With the saints and the chiefs start his career 1993. Retired 2005 obviously. Will shields. I shouldn't -- obviously the V play till six year old will now right so that would be will shield guard for Kansas City Chiefs from 19932006. Here's adjusting name and Venus Williams. He was a very good quarter. Really like this game I'm sure these hall fame caliber overall especially not over some of these guys that are up -- -- it. Corner and safety played with the cardinals and the rams in his career. The two senior nominees. Jack Butler was a corner for the Steelers in the fifties. And. -- sample who was a guard with the Detroit Lions in the Washington Redskins also. Throughout the fifties so there's a list. You want Patrick did I think this the year he gets it. Going against -- Jerome brown Chris Carter. To -- -- and a de Bartolo Chris Stallman Kevin Green Charles Haley Cortez Kennedy Curtis Martin Bill Parcells -- -- will shields. And and the S Williams. On Monday night we're gonna see some possible future hall of famers. Any NFL player ecology because there's going to be. All all budget talent on the field. In the BCS national championship game. -- issue against Alabama. You think this is a good match of these two teams. They played once earlier in the year Alabama several field goals LSU -- it was one overtime two overtimes whatever was the went to overtime. Very low scoring game expect to be little more high scoring in this one not quite that much -- scoring little bit more high scoring now. In the SEC will once again walk away. With that crystal football. Who feel like in this one everybody's kind of divided. I like LSU. I think LSU overall has been a little bit more consistent. The Alabama and yes I think Alabama dig out from the first -- the plate but unless you want -- in the game because -- -- -- field goals by Alabama. I'll take LSU. I think you're gonna do some things on offense. That will. Be a little different helped them out against Alabama this time. I'll be -- -- football team. They're both very very -- coach Nick Saban one of the best in college football less miles talking eagle gets him in any game the mad -- just as a great job. Week in and week out year in and year out. I'm really looking forward to this game. In any money -- the the line. Is Alabama minus one the over under is equally or not. You might think while he got to wonder -- that right -- no way either team know able teams in the twenties I wouldn't be so. Sure about that. I think you could see a special teams touchdown. You could see defensive touchdown. I think really most of all. What hat -- tends to happen when these two teams went to teams usually play each other to these kinds of games alligator early in the year. And they have a month to prepare for each other remember. I think they come up with little new wrinkles in nuances. And change of strategy open up a little we see teams have such defensive struggle. Play again and they -- -- later. They try to open it up cattle like -- theory with New Orleans and Detroit tonight you might see a defensive struggle. Because both teams like to throw it and get after -- they're gonna try some different things to make sure the other team doesn't do that.
