But speaking of linebackers a very special impromptu gas and RW GR Sports Radio 550 studios. Buffalo Bills linebacker Kirk. Morrissey and Kirk thanks for joining us here what's levels going off. Not much a lot of a lot going on an idea FL draft obviously. Linebackers being taken by the bills -- gonna be joined by some teammates -- more competition. Tank -- gonna join yet Nigel Brennan is gonna join you obviously your thoughts on that. -- great his not distinctive via competition levels is -- be there has risen and I expected that in. Going four for next season is added depth I think this that you didn't -- you know rounds four through seven it's kind of added depth guys can come in -- develop a little bit -- Dollar from the guys who are here so it's myself Nick Barnett and this is crazy -- killed his average now idea you know he's a veteran if this up. We gotta do -- indefinitely we -- still learning social port -- defense is something that. All of us on the have to learn about the same time we're excited for the challenge and and -- compete and we know so a lot of our shoulders. And -- for because of what we did and thus far that even the line of hidden Mario Williams could Mark Anderson now you have to have. Guys in the second level and linebacker corps we had to step our game up now because we know it. You know Stephon Gilmore in the secondary. In the guys we have in the back in the you know they're gonna hold a variant so we got to make sure we do our. -- Talk about the team's speed has been drafted because that has been a emphasis I think here. Dave -- going back to his days as the -- Miami. Defensive coordinator Jimmy Johnson and then with the Dallas Cowboys and any. Goes and the FL head coach Miami Dolphins he's always emphasized. Team speed he's won championships using that formula you guys have drafted really fast. Players on this defense. That's one thing you can't teach that. Now alone Tom. That's open records and that's one thing. Mr. Davis always taught -- always say it was that. One thing you can't -- is how fast the diaries you can you can storms steals the fundamentals that he needs to be a football player by. You can't teach and speed nothing about it blonde the guys that we drafted. Fast players now in the transit council the football field in Seoul on the fundamentals and the scheme wise and all postings that. Can -- didn't play -- and affable as well I mean maybe the draft you always say. How can this person make my team better I think day each individual that we selected. In -- way it makes our football team better and they would be a better team. Now on notes on Paper we're better team now than they that we finished last season when -- -- -- -- obviously your on the area for the -- work everything like that. Had gotten the chance to meet Stephon Gilmore talked to him at all what what are your impressions of him as a player and a while he was -- on Thursday night in he came in Friday morning of the meetings with the guys. I think it has that you -- -- phenomena linebacker room trying to get this thing down your -- because and a worm you know my role is on this football team for next year's. And now what's expected of me so I have -- Texas Instruments how would testify and and see were his you know -- that see where it was his expectations for himself a lot of times that. We is -- team members in media an analyst there -- has expects expectations for certain players. But sometimes it what do you expect the football player known Mike Stratton. We're talking drafts of all it's the vector Hala fill -- my acting was. To go on attempting to do what I've done in college which was always compete which always say nothing ever be given to the other earn everything. And that's the way to take in my approach the -- don't make sure you guys know it. Every time eagle on the football that you have to go lot of news spot in my eyes on you you -- Is there a tougher position to transition from the pros and corner. Well I I think that's one of the toughest. At the age is -- is up there too obvious that we no quarter records appears. To terminology but the the one of the things that. When you get to. The pro you don't have that you have the fog dark content. And in college don't have that you can -- hands on receivers you know it's an article for the Boston. But you needed to you know to the pro rings. It's all about the actual work you see a lot of you know analyst and draft experts talk about this guys can agree fees are great because you need the user -- To stay right into the the wide receiver because you can use your hands at the five yards so that's one thing that's always hard for guys coming -- lot of -- -- Young quarterbacks in the community they get the penalties early on because of the learn how to use their. User fee more pain and have -- ball skills and ability. Hopefully we can see that translate into review its own -- he -- term relief well. In its change in his game from you know college -- to agree pro -- It takes time definitely as the bonds and agree -- and the opera and appeared in learn quick and fast 2005 tell us about your draft day experience coming out of -- Diego State what was that like for army and it was great -- from me you know you always wish you can go higher. In draft but -- arms about. It's the draft to hire. Groups do you object to the right spot. And I've felt that at the end of the day I object in the right spot for me I objected to a position where. Can come in and start immediately and that's where it was an -- well out there in training camp and and starting position not played them five years their starters animals there so. A lot of the guys that knew who -- of the teens -- retractable for me. -- rules that currently you know if you look at the draft and he can't even name the top five draft picks of that drafted more because. You know -- loss either you know washed away aired on the number one overall pick apartment with Alex Smith yeah he's had his -- And his you know his his career so far. Didn't you of the game you know Braylon Edwards -- draft and you know cargo Cadillac Williams running around. Pacman Jones your children Williams has so there's a lot of names that go into the draft accord drafted and leave that to prematurely and some of the draft -- -- these guys. -- played the game and how you know in the their career center -- segments was also Pacman Jones yet edited address known for things other than football there -- exactly. I'll still want the guys are still doing it still plan. At a high level so I'm excited about that and that's why that draft experiences so much for me because I always play at that -- much -- That -- spatula. And is because they evaluate that evaluate -- some time in the game. You know which didn't outs and -- would you can relate to in the pro in though when I got to the program. I was ready to go. Kirk the excitement. Surrounding this team is guys like remember right is. The site for the players just through the roof right now on the island and I that's one thing I do. I'm always players. I hate expectations. Hated and just because and with that they are key and again they are coming in and I. This is one thing I just don't like as a player and I hate it it is. Now suddenly people are expecting. Uses to dubious. Now they're saying all of this team should do this this thing to do that. Has never liked it. Case in point last year -- if we talked about winning a Super Bowl on Paper. Lashes Philadelphia Eagles won a Super Bowl in August they had one that's right everybody on the -- it was trio was done but yet. The way they started entities were so high they are looking for in the they had their only -- -- -- and -- -- the first -- ball games and in an hour by looking around like wow what happened because it takes were so high that we as the Buffalo Bills he -- five in two. An arrest of the well elves and expectations and -- expect this to win week in week out. We had injuries and things like that happened you never want that to be part of of the of the season but it happens I think we addressed that this year. With not just a Frontline guys with the -- that's what the draft. You know rounds four through seven you get the depth that -- what the guy's heart goes now. We have some money coming in and play the same that he was -- if not better so what they. With expectations come that's working harder to get to a point where rely day. We know if we wanted to -- me if we wanna go out and get to where we haven't in twelve years as the playoffs. We got to go to the top which is the New England Patriots and we got to get over that that hurdle we have with the New York Jets right now rim beat him the last couple ball games. -- wanna ask if you think that this team was ready to handle that early success last year I know Qian made the comment after the knowingly game he said. We've dealt with adversity now it's about how we deal with prosperity and -- I personally don't feel that the team dealt with prosperity very well because maybe guys were thrust into a situation they've never been used to and it became more about accepting that you had arrived where you maybe haven't you would you agree with that assessment. I agree I agree that last year was obviously is my first army offered here buffalo -- but you better economy that are organizations that then. Through it all good and that and that the one thing was that. The first thing was you know her will be in new pictures -- the first thing. Once we beat him as White House is like a big weight was lifted off or by Sony finally be here. You know full list of the year and east and I felt it of the organization I mean the city you'll adamantly. Thank you thank you for well which is we won a football game which is we're supposed to do right let's have beat the New England Patriots. Who have beaten you know this team so many times before that. While the buffalo arrive in a steel learning each other. You know you really notes football teams at the half layer three quarters of the season. -- really understand what you have -- -- -- that we early on we got some victories and we want. But we stood in fine who we were detained them by Tom we did that in you start -- her. Where we couldn't we're we're trying to put people here -- people there you know his heroes meet its its patent his patch them it's mostly on the guys who. You know who who were no injuries that we lost -- easily and Christie's has depleted the loss you know Russell pairs. And I mean it's. You look at who he was thrown into it in awhile but is Scott Taylor and I don't know where he could become very accurate. You know Stevie Johnson is going to be here if you're afraid Jackson lots and he he was in BP in the lead halfway through the season arguably in place it. And we MVP vote and he should have been lose there would it would and we he would air goes down yet the silly often the -- -- defense. Was an all pro guy in in in Al Williamson's impairment. You're running through four -- and it's I'll listen now you take the top ten talent the top tier talent in an all pro guy. And take -- -- and insert somebody who us and it they're not his own house -- which all pro guy. Then voted on by -- -- and you bring in -- who is back at you can have a drop off -- that -- and I think that's where we're trying to put his sport to. Keep that level almost as equal as as a Frontline -- and he got to run but cochlear San Diego State -- -- trip yes the Broncos as a terrorist of the raiders via push and Alfred -- to come here immediately around. And he was my guy at -- was on go higher he's a third fourth quarter meg definitely. You know -- he lost to our receivers this past year to -- round at some brown and DeMarco Sampson were two of the best receivers in the country. Last year and -- drafted earlier on. And you know you come back for next year -- have those guys have a continuity wide receivers as powerful quarterback if some Campbell's numbers and Islip. In the in you know you over analyze and moved -- and we solved that the year ago by right ten Mario who. You know has all the attributes -- at the quarterback's supposed to look like. And Allison now start to say okay this is what he -- projected be -- and look at the film and say. This -- play nine innings a start some games he started. And now he could be a top team quarterback is this you know -- -- hopefully wherever he lands -- -- -- and -- -- and the person the isn't. Running -- Watch the guys since his freshman year visa. -- and strolls Cutler. Heartedly at the same time will be bigger faster and -- out the football team I'm that would have a place so that when healthy women healthy are -- now via in their missile gaming and if on this one game this past season that'll hamstring Cubans. It was something that was I've never missed the game before that in my whole entire scorers from the one game in -- and seven years. Is -- it's exciting round when you see the guys work and we have this last year. -- there was -- of the -- So we inhabitants of this camaraderie. Seeing guys work now seeing guys put an effort that time. And now that we're doing it now. At the pace over -- learning the system Ernestine. It's no excuses for me about them in the same page out of there a Syracuse got to plant aircraft carrier next year's sale basketball seriously -- -- You know -- if you vacuum tickets aren't I today aircraft carrier unbelievable -- accuse verses and a statement aircraft careers. The level of Tabasco team snaps and such a great job neck issues one might call a guy you know every now and it's just talk basketball on. He is head guy has great size -- so. But its expectations -- week toddler from the football yeah basketball Syracuse laws have those expectations of being in this that the big you know leader liberties and sending a state where both of these -- -- -- -- so. You know woman battles coming right next it's can be -- great great way to kick off.
