It's football Monday on WGR we talked on Mondays normally at for today will be here at five with bill senator Eric -- I Eric. Good. Normally we spent most of our time talking to you about the game and then a little bit on the next game and then maybe some silliness. -- will still do silliness -- dog but maybe a little more on the next game because it's. So much earlier this period Thursday night -- -- -- real blow up yesterday -- -- it was a pretty -- via be a pretty nice day for you guys especially the way. You guys ran the ball Erica mean it was just such a departure somewhat of a different look they would get into some of that but. Just give us your reaction to how that game went down. -- You so we we were able to run the ball effectively and stop running attack which is. Which is big deal with some injuries we have that was that was achieved you know keep our defense off the field -- -- and and the real real strong game in to defense and have a -- to -- -- rushing in five years ago. You know credit the running -- in the holes and everybody walking in but. That's a good team win yesterday and they want immediate. You know people were on us last week about that. You know the inability to run the ball. And all kinds of ideas but mostly was they needed to pull back on the field. And in become this sort of this moral smash mouth kind of team and I spent a lot of the weakened -- defending. The way the games have gone thinking like it's a passing league. And I know you wanna run the ball some but the way to win is that is to throw it. But here we go you go to play the ravens and -- fullback on the field -- like more two tight end sets. The there'd been in. I don't know. How old. What was your reaction when you knew going into the game the that was going to be the game when you're gonna try to just really -- it down their throats. So we're excited and you know electric organs the jets we wanted to run the ball we thought. Maybe some of our. Eleven personnel sets -- -- what receivers we could. You know get some favorable boxes. In our favor so. When they had to -- to base and we didn't. We didn't have a great game plan from that -- for our run game a lot so this week we can't put him. A lot of twelve personnel to tell them is an awful a fullback 1001 woman said. And that a lot of -- kind of -- out of a hat and account for everybody in the box and it'd -- be effective and an -- week to week. Your game plan. Especially in the know all the what we where we really want any corporation would run all about -- -- group is just. Wherever the matchups seem more favorable as there's always need to do. Eric -- with -- us on WGR Eric we've been talking quite a bit today and even yesterday. About how nervous. We fell in -- I'd say the fans seemed during the second half of the game. I don't know if US a player -- would. If that would register with -- -- or you if you think like that are on the field how about yourself what you've got a game here where you're ahead for most of it you're an underdog. And you really having to get all these interceptions things are really going for you but it's always still pretty close it might have been the kind if you were to get nervous and beat it -- may be the kind of game that would make you nervous. Yet all -- -- don't let terrorists that I was discovered roster it would be model once looked album ward then they don't howl. We could put them away a lot earlier Obama holding call -- have to settle. Field goal range and really run that adorable and so didn't want to. You know we had a you know touchdown called back that turned it reported a lot of -- -- in the red are where we need to search -- touchdowns. And and that game could really got out and for them and you know so so we don't look the apology is all the structure so that -- and you know it's. Because ultimately you gotta do you know I do no matter what you know. But what happens we either way in the game. Our liberties that's sophomore Matt you're out Terkel went up again but you know so that's good time to get nervous -- Mr. President -- that are going to be. Right right that's the right approach I would think so do you do you sense it in other people. Other teammates a crowd that you're you're observing guided Smart guy wonder if during the course of the game you know especially when. You're on the sideline or maybe during a timeout resort to take note of what it feels like in the stadium. Yeah I mean that we could get a pretty good feel for the crowd and and I don't know but they're nervous I -- You know there are some bones one late in the game what we want to make mistake on. -- third long -- all approached Korean border. Do real low risk of turning the ball over. You know definitely. You know probably had to get a kick situation but so not not. Screw what parties and so you know you can't hear the moans. -- the problem -- yesterday I mean. I had to people and about -- that it never be able built it before. And then they were beyond trusted. These are got that usually had got them against title games in the past. And you know there have blown away and started college atmosphere out there like what date they couldn't get over how well the problems. As as Mike is asking you those questions Erica I -- finding myself sitting here one wanted to ask you this and and and and make it this direct. Are you aware of the fact that a lot of a lot of the fans expect you guys to break their hearts would you -- -- that's the vibe as the game is unfolding in the fourth quarter. Yeah and you know even though they might not say it directly. You know it's kind of one of those things where where we know people appear skeptical about us. The fact that they're probably not support not it can be and so great is also but. The only other skeptical and we've lost for so long we've blown games. Like yesterday in the past that and hopefully you know that some sort of a new Errol we're not doing those things and you know those types of games like yesterday. You know in the future we need to put those games away earlier because the opportunities were there. -- one thing that occurs to me here is with the show where we talk so much about decisions. -- fans and certainly we like we never played the game like this and can't always relate to what it takes to do physically what you guys do but. We all think we know what you should do on fourth down and run vs past -- -- that's what the discussion is all about. How about a couple of those interceptions purely from an athletic. Standpoint all loans -- to to end -- the Eric Williams catch me Eric those are some serious. Great athletic plays I'm I'm assuming you were also impressed. Are absolutely. You know if you go to law can go on those guys that can make a lot of plays in the lead he plays hard he's Smart he's instinctive. Get himself in the right position a lot of times that make plays. Stated that he's proving -- and and -- interceptions -- couple more to them. And then also implies an even him catching towards the American -- -- what what would that touchdown. That turns in the reports that it that it ends up being a huge -- for us. But -- a lot of a lot of great -- our defense yesterday in an update the key years. You know -- -- pressure of quarterbacks this year and it was a sack numbers I don't know where they stand. The pressure sometimes it is is even better -- that's what that quarterbacks are thrown it up in the air it and we target of critics. You have eleven sacks if you're wondering tied for eleventh in the league and you guys this this. Point was also made on the broadcast yesterday on TV with respect to often so you have four guys who have complete competed. In track even internationally Olympic level. You thinking about these these two guys on defense -- those plays yesterday and this is always. Somewhat true it's great athletes who play in the NFL nobody seems maybe it's right to consider these bills. As such talented athletically as a bills team in a long time. Thought definitely I've been here we've done a good job accumulating some talent. I mean if you look at the -- he will probably want Auburn training camp this year that. That's a great side you're looking for a few years ago. You know we were cut and good players at the other -- -- open and even not defense. You know the play making ability of module in -- linebacker those other boats fast aggressive -- There are secondary. You know when they get healthy I think they'll be pretty scary that they're playing well you know right now. With just some lapses here there and once we get the actual -- that they will be at all either. Dollar bills senator Eric Wood here on Buffalo Bills football Monday on WGR Eric joins us each and every Monday. Normally at 4 o'clock but today because of various schedules change with the short week in the -- bowling on Thursday in Cleveland. -- joining us now here in the 5 o'clock hour. Imagine being at full strength how about both that you're running backs -- your number one the number two or robbery wanna get a -- Spiller and Jackson both coming out of this game with injuries that have their status. I guess open a year going into Thursday with a short week here. Yet it's you know hopefully get those cut back troops. Two great football players obviously dead in a big part of what we want to do. But. You know. Hopefully. Hopefully they'll really get healthy. I don't think either injuries major but obviously -- running back you don't have the explosion be effective. It's the next man up mentality and we got a lot of confidence in short tours are number three running back right now. And then you know last year Cleveland loses. Did not break -- game when he got an opportunity grants or nine yards against them. Not even playing old games so. You know -- -- the guys the other guys step in that room that obviously to our better players being banged up as a particular -- Monday with a Thursday game but. Hopefully those couple field evaporated. Eric I'd like to talk more about the injuries -- if you if you -- report just because I mean hearing Jackson he was on with our guys in the morning here on WGR today and he said so after the game yesterday like he he thinks he'll be double play it's it's -- it's a -- -- -- -- going on -- -- -- sprained. And like I -- I'm just all be really impressed if he is able to play. With that with -- -- the same I guess about -- with a sprained ankle to if they are able to get on the field I wonder in how much. Hello how far that goes in a locker room when guys are able to him we hear all the time no breeze helping in the NFL wants the game -- we starter he's nursing. Various injuries or whatever but. If we get sprained ankles and sprained MC Els and you're running backs are still up their play and that's got to provide some kind of inspiration. Yeah absolutely and you know we got a lot of guy last week and we cannot get developed. You know got like Collins is only seven months particularly surgery. Out there make employees has also meant it and inspired him in the those guys don't pseudo sports. On third development allotted and that's -- You know how the team aspect of this game because. Both those guys to be extremely selfish -- we can. They have their packet in short week but be -- by Cincinnati without much rest that longer ago. And I'm not saying it would be selfish and they didn't play. But I know that boat over and get the -- this week getting treatment in China you're right Thursday and and that's a lot about those Islam. -- how is it possible that a guy can play four full NFL games elsewhere replay in the pre season and not the hurt mean. Power power you how is it how is it possible to play the line. And with all the injuries in the league now and still be -- bright. -- You know it takes will walk for sure cougars got slight -- your legs. You know yesterday -- -- -- out double talk but luckily. You know bigger -- what about where you are -- pitcher like like -- It goes on to the next player but. You know -- walk it. It'd obviously you're moving your guy out of the way and it -- you might not be going to enroll up -- but. But even if you're completely healthy you know you'll still get you know jammed finger something which isn't a huge deal but when your -- You're you're when you're punch the guy that's 300 very proud to report you know like -- -- on your finger could be pretty painful throughout the game. You -- -- journal articles so much that you -- I didn't feel that but you know the next day you know your hands feel terrible and the little things like that let. You know personally popular also and you know this is the best but over the years and knock on wood hopefully -- continuance -- -- in -- effort. He's not -- -- yourself please inaudible it. Don't hear me out a little more on this appeal adultery I I'm I'm curious about how much peer pressure there is. For guys to try to play through stuff and I guess I'm I'm thinking somewhat about George bird when I make in this -- yet the play game with a -- injury that as far as we know he kind of was able to play through last year. Published peer pressure is there in the room for guys to -- -- in on most rapid all showed up whenever there whatever his play with the various networks at the. It's it's hard to say you know what kind of a case by case example are bought up the pressure -- -- within yourself or how bad you might wanna get out there. You know I know personally when I had -- and -- of the year last year that he did discover. Was -- goes off. You know -- -- injury that the tactic did but you know -- didn't got a lot to me to come back and show everybody that. You know even a target -- -- Bob I'll come back the loan is not receive any ending injuries should elect Canon. I don't lot of gut -- and what I. You know -- with chairs. You know because case by case and then. For him I think it is if you if you want to get its feet back where he could. Get past that and not have to address that year to year. We -- week in. I believe that's that's what he's older now. But you don't have a problem -- -- say would you say that -- that there isn't a problem among the players questioning him where we got exactly. You know like that -- psychic -- and and nothing more pressure would come from -- individual. -- position group. But I'll let laden I know you know walk out there each other like to hear anything you can do to come back with a ruler would really appreciate it. You know sit there by -- they. I don't think you have the captain. It in the -- -- elders. It's almost like your team. But you don't want to push it got to ruin his career like I don't know enough about this situation. To go up to him. Hey you know we really want you to come back this week. I trust that -- -- -- what and the team as you know things go in opening up the play. I trust him -- He's not a good team it means for. Go on -- or in the partners. Okay Cleveland on Thursday. If you know we're talking about a 100% of the game plan how much. All of the regular week's game plan and you have for game a game like this do you. Settle for less that's new or do you have some advance. Kind of reconnaissance work going on so you get to today and you can just cram how does that work when it's a short week. You know remote Kremlin today we're not gonna -- and our package going in this game at all we've. We're going to -- or. And installation. Our coaches. Credit that date after the game yesterday came back in the work. It's our Cleveland last night in this morning we came in a little bit later bed. If they had the game plan pretty much ready so. You know they put it a tunnel work these last 24 hours. Get everything right so now we can install it. And -- to -- on. You know obviously it's not a normal week but -- -- possible. With about -- you have with the game plan and be able to watch film -- or. The second year this where they've had you know at every every week there's a Thursday night game and it seems to be somewhat of a five nationally. That. You know the quality of the game. May suffer in all -- the quick turnaround is not the normal prep time not a normal recovery time for guys. How how are you when your teammates feeling about this you in the sense that guys aren't big fans of this Thursday night singer they like being the only game on a given -- Though a lot of us like -- it's on the play and avoid. To be the only show lauded in this year you know we wanna go out in no -- got what we got this year go up there may be. Our respect for people that their knuckles you're on our regional coverage and you know works cited in -- I'll tell you that play on this Thursday game earlier in the year. Is it's a lot easier prepare for than what we played a little bit later last year where you've you've got a little more. You got a few more -- -- -- one of the year and it will opera come back I think I think -- we will be structure. Of arsenic in the last year. And -- not mind. Earlier before you go I'm I'm. It's possible regret asking you about this but the dollar shave club business. To continue and a listener friendly way explain what the deal is here and maybe there's a way that time we can follow along with this. -- So dollar -- club that somehow what. Why experiment called one -- -- and media -- other senators and had a thought promoted it kind of like. They're dealers. Like every place over the clean snap -- you can count each of those additional -- you -- jobs. Yesterday they -- -- some money and every point that indicate he just had this year they're gonna donate ten dollars richer deeper than Monday and said. You know -- -- bloody -- -- the startup companies are not a huge huge. Topic -- on this. You know to help them out in and their wounds that they beat. Well and you know I don't have too much pride endorsed Mel -- Yeah. There's there's a quote for you had. -- don't have public and I think all the walker then it's funny did you know we got the one what Charlie's install that stadium -- No people out there did you not at all Pollack you know. I guess I'll have to -- -- I was offered. Maybe it was so someone from that company sent me an email -- you got this to Bulldog -- you can have the CEO of the company on.
