At the bottom of the hour or so after the next breakers sold -- Bryant here and we'll talk me him Brian. And you talk about four masters sabres whole bunch of stuff. And your chance to give -- on the pre game three pregame showing you today. For the Buffalo Sabres a lot going on the sports world have been talking about the Buffalo Sabres in there. Run toward the playoffs coming up short. How to fix that -- how to get into a place not how to get into the playoffs I would championship just haven't had a championship. In this city ever. Forty years of one organization. Fifty years of another organization. -- No championship. To be spoken -- in the city of buffalo. May be with the bills direction -- arrow starting appoint up. They would reveal more optimistic about that finally happening that organization. A guy who likes that who says maybe. Nice sleeper team there are sleeper team for 2012. -- SPN dot com is the AFC east blogger is name is James walker James. Welcome to sports talk Saturday and happy Easter weekend. Explain their do you sell happy happy that we can view as well. We are talking about this blog this article you wrote yesterday the bills as your sleeper team. In the AFC east obviously people getting bullet fired up -- were already really excited about the Mario Williams thing and after what happened with the Buffalo Sabres in going to NHL playoff withdraw all now we need something to lift our spirits game so thank you for doing that and also just tell us a little -- why you like the bills moving ahead in 2012. Well I would not have wrote the article if I didn't mean it and I think that bill. I can't it would seem that it's done a better job entries into buffalo not only did they I'm. Marty away and the biggest create and not in Peyton Manning out there on the market but they added mark and and I'm and they also kept all players I think -- -- you know got -- TV talk and act like. -- action that they kept their own guys. As well lit you know edit some pieces to where they really need in what became college years it was almost a joke the -- -- -- election they just could not. Is it pressure or an expert in that second at the and here they they may have wanted to you know two or three. He as the blind in the league with -- -- Williams Marcel -- and Mark Anderson -- they pretty much got put the middle. And and it also got the speed rush out and so really they. You know they have a chance to surprise a lot of people are on the property to global or anything like that but I do think you know they have a definite. And make the playoffs and at least in the -- You talked about the five reasons why you think the Buffalo Bills could you know be that get over the hump as you put it. Just kind of expand on those if you really just talked about the free agency and what they did. Also running back CJ Spiller Fred Jackson many people around here James think that's a bad thing I agree with you it's not a bad thing is it. I'm not a deposition there are some position like quarterbacking and you know mother to this is where you know I. In -- competition where that you know to even got. Maybe -- but at running back in opposition it's very physical there's always an injury. Ethnic actually benefit the Q and you also -- and pretty much over used last year he ran the ball at times early. He was in popular action game you know with a very good receiver out of the backfield. And evaporating lakes so are at stake. You know that -- think buffalo learn a little -- and from that you -- -- has come up in the leg -- 31 years though. They have a short first topic is he based analytic -- what he can do. Artwork in the year I think guilty about the last week holders meeting. And you know he described it but the problem that -- completely agree now it's not gonna get to -- -- you split you know Africa and going to be historic a lot of people about Lowell. They want CJ Spiller to to make it more Kerry or even split. I don't think that's gonna happen but you know they can get sort of that's 6040 split going where you know rejection comes in and you know it may be the first seven or eight -- -- CJ -- to and you know maybe since it became optic. They cannot really give a lot of it is at excavate broke bring a lot to the table. Also the top ten pick obviously the bills they shored up the -- at the pass rush as you just referred to in free agency. Lot of talk early on was maybe in Ingram may be an upshot that doesn't look like they're have to go that direction but the big debate here today AJ we've even talked about debated. On the air today is which direction to the bills go as far as maybe offer to tackle -- wide receiver that you need to keep hearing Riley right. Vs maybe Michael Floyd which direction do you think the bill should go in the draft at number ten. And that that's not you know I think both the that it can help. Actually think Michael Floyd the better player you know between the two and I know the draft stock in things like that you know Michael -- -- more projected to be -- -- -- it. It's -- talks when he takes. And you know Riley on I would book to be a top ten top twelve take. But in terms of actual player yet to compare two players I think Michael Floyd at the better it at a higher healing. Inept a lot of people make you know Riley will be I'm more bucks but decent left. Apple but you know not actually delete or probable player. I think that the case then maybe you should go the player at higher upside -- Michael Floyd can play opposite Stevie Johnson. You know -- and sort of producer ought to spread offense at that spread the ball around you need. Some dynamic playmaker a lot of people would argue that Stevie got in the net fairly. Uggla hit number one you know -- a -- you know type of receiver. So you get excited as you know feeling he noted that justice I have maybe higher. I think you might want to go in that direction you critters and you had all the measurable maybe he can play left tackle and you eat treats. Maybe can move from guard -- left we wanted better a more personal -- July delete tree at the option. So they don't necessarily have reached -- player it and let apple they don't think he's an elite global player that can develop over the next few years. Tell me about the rest of the AFC east is I mean obviously it looks like. As the bill's -- possibly trending upward he got the situation in New York with Tebow coming in like your thoughts on that by the way of course but. Also Miami it's not looking very good -- New England where do you see them right now off the heels of losing the Super Bowl last year. It -- start that the tablet New England Patriots or patriot community it's so consistent in this so quiet they do everything right you don't really hear. Anything bad coming from them in the -- -- and even with their -- situation Wes Welker which. Potentially could be at at situation but Wes Welker is such a you know prototypical patriot that he made all the right -- -- all right he's he's not gonna make. You know -- to do about that -- I think that it is still gonna crop. You know in the -- either one -- away you know from winning the Super Bowl they're they're be nice to that's operating. They're going to be finding me and it would brand like peace and I'm gonna check. That are difficult indicate that you don't know that Harold points up. Were down and you know there's a lot of debate which way to point. I think a lot of it's gonna come -- -- Mark -- he died in the third year probably to maybe step back or to living yep they'll have people situation coveted. Which tactic and -- -- -- think that the very much intermittent these can be anything between either you know -- is gonna play well into football well. -- -- -- come in and do with staying at at the lot at quarterback or Marchex has been -- when you have an immediate quarterback cops or are they. The -- -- people which that'll work is gonna be gauged by how well markets editor play. He played poorly in the hole they can implode it becomes an entire thing and doesn't stop it performs well. Which some people put an acting all it would that we improve -- keyboard yet everybody knows is a great running quarterback Matt and the serve liquor. A great up passing quarterback. It's -- that my doc and I live in Miami actually burst and a lot of key port distorted about what the -- that the went down there. They pretty much got to their roster they were seen I thought. On the -- they played very well what happened in east -- -- actually -- buffalo I play well in that game of excellent coach. And now what they got there Brandon Marshall probably their you know maybe when it's -- the player or are they governor leading tackler Yeremiah Bell. They haven't really made any move out to the quarterback situation I don't think -- to grow -- ultra solution but they think potentially to be a starter I got. Oh yeah that that that Errol let me turn -- downward with the Miami Dolphins so. I think despite the -- -- got -- -- well. You know sort of moved up. Within the ranks in addition to the moves they made I think it was a great time purple buddy nix and such and it would make a -- created the and you don't kind of income that you know upload did not. Usually spent a lot of it traditionally I think it's a great how to make a move that because the that this have a whole outcome in -- exception of the patriot. We're talking with James walker he is the blogger for ESP and that comes AFC east blog in. By the way and they're taken vacation since I appreciate this being -- like the last China you know the last thing you deal before you head out what do you go for vacation where you don't they -- special. Well I live in Miami -- -- every day it's kind of like a vacation down there though you know I haven't quite figured out yet you know it's kind of person -- not taking it. You know since I started you know switched over to the -- in September so. I it'll work in progress but I'm I'm gonna relax estimate in that doing so get ready for the track -- a couple weeks. OK now tell us about Tim Tebow what your thoughts on him go to New York can they handle. This circus dirty seems like it's spiraling out of control this early James. Yet in the crazy thing about that -- that he doesn't ask you this you know some people isn't necessarily you know a guy that it's sort of. Brought himself in front of the camera and everything is but everybody wants you don't want to talk to everybody -- right right required by what's and be a public speaker to speak. When -- -- Sunday in front of about 30000 people. Down in Texas tomorrow so that interest in him. Is just amazing for it's probably going to be a backup quarterback you know with the New York Jets you know about it. Football -- because the Smart move I think some people can help the running game. It's let's look at grounded out in the run the ball you know 60% at it's sort of have -- such as where we'll play -- you can look at helped that. -- average up point four yards per carry last year I mean that's a great amount or any person I'd let alone your running quarterback. So I can speak for -- X and -- standpoint -- -- Toronto and -- -- pretty well Miami -- come to New York sort of read by -- at Austin. I in New York but you know at that -- I think the -- -- Mark Sanchez can you stay in rhythm. You know he's sparked panic yet you know and the fifteen maybe twenty dependent on the opponent -- -- he's gonna get. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You keep wet and so cricket in blow the game -- just -- -- continually come in out became dependent on the part of the wildcat package -- -- -- epic. Really think is gonna be how he handled that and live well I don't think it's just gonna go very far but it sets is able. To handle let -- less outlets rose and so distilled spirits and have a better year I think he could work out it to. Piggybacking on your wildcat -- a quick James I also pointed out to bill's fans that. David Lee is now the quarterbacks coach in buffalo he of course brought the wildcats Miami when he ran it with Felix Jones and Darren McFadden Arkansas do you see. Brad Smith taking your more role in a wildcat type of offense for the bills knowing that. David Lee -- -- are now running the offense in buffalo. Yet another thing that thank you talked about come at -- owners' meetings and you know he says. The primary reason they actually have the wildcat is just to give -- a little substance to prepare for a little extra something. I -- to prepare for any you don't eat six. You know the more China he's been in practice court and -- at the left -- the working on their based office. I don't think it's ever gonna be a cute staying and upload Brett it did a better job in New York. -- it in buffalo election in my opinion. But I I don't think it's ever gonna be a huge part of the package like -- like it will be you know which police grotto in the jet that the system be more purple ink. They run maybe twice a game or a like that depending on the opponent ex he sucked and public and -- -- but I think boarded an 888 they really like that spread offense to supplement work a lot last year at least the first half eaten -- -- to place. And you know ratchet the spectacle of injury that I think that's pretty much going to be their primary -- Eight C a let me it's a little bit more maybe you don't replace against that'll play -- but I -- but I out of here. As a big thing and outlook especially compared -- the -- While James we take -- and we hope -- your thoughts about the bills through the nature and it's a Goodyear for the Buffalo Bills of course in -- and changes but thanks a lot for joining us today -- -- very good -- by the -- as warm and everybody compile it followed you on Twitter.
