Gonna take some time I'm glad we're in you know we're not even close to where I would like today. And got a lot of work. As you get to witness today. That's morale on the Buffalo Bills practicing in pads at saint John Fisher College first time yesterday left tackle according not working is part of the eleven elevenths he's been out with a medical condition. Hello how are you concerned I think it's quarter will be fun to be healthy you know and he's worked hard to get back healthy guy The rest of the other four guys who have starters from last great.

At least you live from. Eagles training camp and John Fisher College. Remember it's your first your players the end. It's like to experience its trough here for everybody so a lot of things you do I even create just made plays and so I mean did every hour. couple movies he's not Howard Simon show with how decide hey Jeremy White wall to wall coverage on wheels training. GR 550 dot com and presented by UB dermatology in western New human skin care protect your skin scheduling for. You know college agitating for life. Good morning from saint John Fisher College in Pittsburgh our coverage of those training camp continuing here on WGA thank you for joining us by name that your life is along side. And the first thing this morning do you think we operated talk bills. We will the second but the first thing this morning as a public service from Jeremy who had to deal with a traffic mess this morning about what heads up on. Yeah. If you're out there driving and using the 33 if they open it up let me know when I left which was considerably. Along time ago. It was closed in the detours kind of like I'll hear you yet get off 33 and now. Locked There is not a detour and considering I'm trying to get out of the night the it was even more difficult so it at a lot of time to my commute with no traffic. So if it is still closed it will be a nightmare. Bernie when trying to use that and being dumped off into the suburbs in the meantime if you got house I did I did they are basically my advice would be to. And lest we hear that it is opened again my advice would be to pretend that the 33 outbound. Doesn't exist today that all pat rode past this huge equities and pretend it doesn't exist. So there you go the picture headed out because I've heard a lot of people generally have a you know to an ID 33 debate like every daily which. Ground that way here I edit every day. This is the data avoid the 33. At lest we hear that it's which could be you know it's close overnight but when I traveled through. There was a whole lot of stuff that they would have to move the course of our so maybe it's opening it. Who knows maybe open at six but it doesn't tweet us but don't we like you're driving right exactly if you're sitting in traffic but it was it was a bit frustrating to say the least. I'm frustrated the subtleties about what the Emmanuel. Now note know about it's OK it was our couple text votes so just opened Erica so the thing that I dealt with this morning. None you have to deal with give that it just for you you know I get things done around Jeremy is utterly cap. What's best with it just wasn't great. Who every our doing great work. Don't mess with the people on the road I'm not I'm saying nice work throw some stuff on your car to drive it was frustrating. I I wanted to get but to bring PGA let me ask you this. Evaluating Egypt this portion of the pre season camp not write ask you this here's a look at. There's not that he can do it can't that would make me go. Wow he's got it. Right beat the only thing do in my opinion reject is that we believe it works but he can't back up these banks which is gonna. billing but other public worried but picked up it lights up at saint John Fisher. The and a no win situation I would not be impressed. He should. Look good in the practice setting in the in the second year the office while at the same up at the coordinator. A number eighty they went on but he does this right let's say that that place sealed but but it's kind of the top spot to be because there's not that he can do positive that would make me say. I feel better about Egypt really doesn't games well would it be as bad days here yeah ago all of these exit training him what that act. Well how about a positive. It would be no negative. He's been bad yet Ali looks like yesterday apparently. But it over the couple practices but not just media members I have a friend was here yesterday who said he's not coming back because. Each case thinks he didn't look good I didn't see yesterday's practice here stuff that the I only saw Sunday night and I didn't think you look at blow your chance to see him again this morning but he has not been. Gooden one of the big things it's developing is that. He has not looked very good. But he is certainly not saying now. Bill that developing story lines is it yesterday manual says of the great practiced by all accounts everybody that was here want to says it wasn't very good. And dug around says a lot of works got a media. So. It's it's not unusual to have athletes that. Or anybody that. Deal with things that way who doesn't have a friend that no matter what happens they stay positive. And for some people that works great grade. all man you just you lost your job like. You know what it's a rise up batters along the doors Oprah or the other but you're exactly right have a bad day you're you know your Carly don't get anyone right. Okay event like if someone is so yeah I I'm not that guy now our buffalo sports I hate it. In that fans and people would cover the sport so we're used to. Vote the moral victory out the of looking next year and a so it IE I don't know that it is necessarily cause for concern but I think it's fair to be frustrated if your quarterback goes out has a bad day. And doesn't say it was a bad day you're gonna kind of feel like. I am I you know had a lot of hand pick the words that he's gonna use. But people want that you think it's not that good it goes back to. The the coaches that have been here right ticket when Dick Jerod slightly notes off the in this league we'd like. It's god be mad that you weren't very good it Chan ways that you know well and spreads to earn it with there's one thing that we don't really like here. It's Washington's. And Manuel is quite wishy washy but. With more role he's I think made some fans with the way that he talks after the chiefs' loss right what do you say. That the congress that is that it. I have had started August or if you could tell he was. Borrowing it affected him the weight affected all of the the viewers all of us were like. I can't believe they lost that game and he kind of seen that. Portrayed the same thing so if you watch a player at this is what made Stevie Johnson a controversial figure right he dropped the ball. And you want him to to old up to it and he would always have a little page of a reason why he dropped it. Or wells tougher catch that you think it was you know those kind of things that those things don't play well pants but if you're manual and you're you're you're out here yesterday. A practices done he's the yesterday in front of it I immediately brought up a podium and it wasn't like that you know group two or two or three reporters it was it was the big press conference. But if annual okay and they ask you the reporter says. Wage any offence looked a little sloppy today which you think and he says however I don't have the exact quote not that was good at that If you're EJ Manuel. These. It was really that he is repeat the main problem on the offense is he going to tell everybody it. I guess you want to say yeah guys I stuck. And while it I don't know what does it. I don't expect him to say it's it's it's a bottle it into that. At Heathrow and Sunday night he threw some bad balls if it wasn't his ball and guys are at rock routes miscommunication and his lack of execution. I would not expect the call out teammates because it's not like he's established himself. As anything volatile football I don't know that anyone who speaks suggesting that he teammates to call out who would call out. City Watkins has been tremendous on if if if the problems on offense let's say it's not just each is making that rose. Let's take guys don't know what they're supposed to be. The of the rock route I guess that it's it's we have to get execution is not a great office is not a great practice I don't think he's in position he feels that comfortable yet it is leadership to do that that's a big concern he has that you don't go with the position but he definitely comes with the position of being the face of the franchise that but he's he's he's. So our list published as an NFL quarterback I don't think he's gonna do that now that's a major concern if he's not comfortable calling out. Not teammates by name or needed mile generally speaking infrared. Yet just if he's not cultural enough to say when they're bad. Yeah I was really bad out there and mean go ahead and say it starts with me or say anything incredibly pointed out its training camp so what differences may keep you go ten for ten. And it doesn't put anything on the scoreboard but they haven't they haven't looked good they are now up through three days has not let go and if they don't look good for another. Like this goes back to the pre season I was bit about when shoulder got fired. The office was so bad in the pre season we would sit here that you believe how bad they are. They fired him. to the pre season is always that this little dance between does that mean something and does it mean nothing when they fired but the aspired her shoulder in the pre season. And immediately ratcheted up how much I think coaches really do value this guy lost his job because the office was that she'll. And they work and put in his system and gone through a couple of preceding games and they couldn't do anything and fire the guy. So I don't think they're gonna fire Nathaniel Hackett that element suggesting but the point is if Manuel. Is gonna struggle through camp. Weird you know it's not a quarterback competition. So OK if it's not a competition where here at the competition is heating up between two pool and Louis LO would get to that discussion board well that would indicate that one of them might be playing like yeah well right. Yeah I season what happens when one of those two that's playing well looks better than manual. I'll bet that happens at some point six so why not that I thought that that person's played against twos and threes by the way. That'll happen while Emanuel plays and has success we told against twos and also the colts game that was right camp bodies is the first half. And before and after the half was even over we're told all those just can't bodies that doesn't count so I don't know why it would be nice to hear him. Own up to bad practices if there are bad practices now that it's asking a lot but I guess and I also don't wanna try to hand what it is idiots. Yeah I that's why don't I guess. I don't get as hung up on I know it can be a big issue. But. The which quarterback out of the many quarterbacks are a couple guys are people like what maybe it was now floating never did in anybody's side there were guys who they would admit they had a bad game rankled people. I don't get hung up. On that stuff. I get more up on how the guy looks at whether bodies but it said that the the that they really DJ in his camp. At Fisher the pre season's different ways in games even pre season games and it's going against other teams that I could start evaluating him. But here of these practices. The team drills seven seven whatever they're doing. From in my opinion there's nothing you can do that make me feel better about the treatment he can only lose by guys that I think that's a difficult situation. you said a moment ago go to protect he can hit it straight go routes. Different receivers. But I'm not gonna walk away going folks. Go home rest easy tonight sleep well when the man are you sure because. The question about each Emanuel as he arrived it up at week two last year yes I but that's what I got excited about that I had private thought they looked at eight it was just you did it. A pre season I want Agilent. Now this can do so I I I can jump to conclusions with the best of them. I just to me I just think he didn't know it situation. He he even looks good it means absolutely nothing but bombs and yet the red blacks are gonna go up because you should look good Yeah I don't think there's nothing if you looks good people talk about it and feel better about and it. Well like I won't that I really it will it will mean a thing if he looks good against his defense training. While it's if he comes out here I can only really at place spectacular for the rest of camp. You'll feel better would it plays great out here it bombs that is filed exact date that will matter more yeah. But I don't think is that this is this is EJ Manuel in the pre season yeah. Throws eight touchdowns and zero interceptions he'll feel no different note in the game. Yes I'm sorry I always see here in the rest of the him but I what are the stories that capsule for what he gave but not looked good three days so for the next three weeks if becomes. Manual start to get throw grade boy he's out you'll you'll all know we're getting on efficient. Now I certainly well. Then again don't have that writes I'd like it to not be a hypothetical. It be nice if he could have a good day. Other teams in the cornerbacks offenses. At good days right. Training camp you should it's a pretty controlled environment you know is here right acts like. That was the story from yesterday he's riding a bike. Just. It signals story lines that are that are happening around here I mean that one of the reasons why. Again everything here so scripted it's so prepped at all that there's no pressure he's he's he's throwing ball going to give them. It I think it do for if he has a good day. For me to look at it go that's a big step region at least had three consecutive really great practices at saint John Fisher. That's progress to to it just doesn't mean anything because again. At the very least in training camp they Wear the red Jersey. Nobody can hit the quarterback a little bit different when the quarterback has to worry about you know what would pass rusher beats an offensive line at a training camp. They peel off you know you can't touch the guy that changes even in the preceding games that changes the giants coming after him and can't Ohio. A week from Sunday night in the first pre season game so that it valuation to me is legit. When we get to those five games as bad as pre season football can be and yes sometimes the ones are against the Jews and there's you know match that. Or necessarily. Are are favorable I should say to a court records basic back At least I can evaluate another team who he doesn't know anything about who he hasn't been practicing against every day. Were throwing different things that him that he probably doesn't know in his sleep now it was all the stuff that that gonna do it David Fisher. And they can try and actually actually taken down. That's when I can start getting a better feel for EJ Manuel and evaluate whether or he's making progress. I look at it can't I guess at this he's not wildly. there's nothing can do Beckett while we have training camp it is just to be it doesn't amount to anything but if they if they continue to struggle. With the same offensive coordinator in the same quarterback the same top two running backs the same number one side and what causes the diseases. One to two of the top four receivers are back from last year. If they continue to struggle training camp with all of that. That I think that becomes a really big story he doesn't look good training camp. I would beast by critics I would be really really nervous I would start freaking out if he continues to rating. Eagle 30550 to join us 888550. To 5:15 o'clock. We'll talk about TJ we'll talk about what is this any Lockett two of the guys yes they talk a little bit about the bill well comment about Lockett trade. We'll discuss that as well since they have a talk about Sammy Watkins it'll back EJ Manuel weather dot aide to Emanuel can get to the football. back to a better. Or you know does that it will help block and become an impact player in the national football. Speaking of Sammy Watkins DL that the ratings are out actually it the comments about that I've got. Question about his ratings I'd go ahead. Departed tell you. Matthew put a scheme to your analyst guy numbers guy rookie ratings. Sammy Watkins. Speed. 93 right acceleration. 95. Right agility. 95. Catching. 88. Overall score. Yeah so tonight as any other other categories that are hidden here's your report card in social united. And Matthew and 93 yeah and champion 97 yeah and in English she got 89 that there your GP AS eight. I opted out what all the things I'm good I got great scores and he gave me eighty. houses awareness right his punting is really low there. But I do it means and trivia odd it was that or five rookies in right quick and vigilant of the top four. I what OK for the for the freedom. The top four rated rookies according to that the Sammy Watkins a Sammy is an eighty that he's at yes I have the top four. Highest score. Is an 83. Let's I'll start with the Geneva and clowning in Iraq as that that's the only guy he's number one he got an 83. Contracts there. Well I I I will I will you guys to look up who got traffic if you'd like to see you address because these are Madden scored so they don't you motivate rank is higher than walk and I'll also say let's go on our. I don't look at the draft I would guess colonial correct. will back got an 81. And the lean towards defensive players being better now okay go ahead and explain this to be remembered we named kids who got. 939595. And 884. And eighty. Oil that got ninety on rushing the passer power 91 pursuit 84 blocks shedding and 74. In zone coverage. And is an 81. pelican Bay Area is out. Let's see three others are ranked higher as rookies on him than Sammy Watkins go Greg Robinson correct. Of the St. Louis Rams. But at that we're running it's not evidence that side that his rating was seventy summit ago. Shake math is correct. Two tackles defensive players Watkins is an eighty. Mike Evans took the tentative via Blake 78. They said that the 82 read about this it's CBS sports the eighty. Apparently hops Julio Jones is about twelve when he came out and is equal to AJ green's And it's a little bit better that I get to got a Saturday. Analytics. That. Sammy and eighty overall. However the rest the player ratings come out with what they have TJ as 7070. Let's say below average rating I don't know or Robert Woods beat. That of the TJ Graham Lance everyone gets the what gets hype train is. All of board and it is full steam. They come up later we're gonna talk to Mike from foxsports.com who was here one of the many members of the national media who came into doubt that the whole. All the crap Lockett has really good thing yeah. So you know why why the second hit a softy to Emanuel discussion on idol addicts go it doesn't look if if sandy Lockett is hauled in touchdown catch them from every quarterback. That'll lead to a quarterback controversy quickly you got weapons they can get the job done in all of hawkish that one of the quarterbacks isn't doing well. It's probable Bobby Johnson and I really didn't hit it at that and Jeff Poland's and that attempts are. Not yet next week down. Yet I like I said. The least at least you get into a to There is there's no way again I. If he continues to struggle yes I will start getting nervous. But in terms of the whole climate of make a lot of people last year who were calling in in over ten game saying guys this guy's a bus like Al. There's no embassy here in late July after a weaker to a practice at Saint John Richards say you guys write he did it just doesn't have it. So I would still be diving I I would be going 100% in getting this guy ready and let me see what happens in the pre season. Here the other numbers on Watkins wondering how he could possibly get an eighty. From. Mad because his strength is low 56. Release is 87 draft is 77 he's. 72 instead farm and when it comes to rocking. He aluminium 55. I don't know why they draft them right. I did their thing I think of where the receivers truck people I've got him a visual of Watkins vs Mike Evans. And the edge goes to Evans bigger struck right in jumping strength catching spectacular catches too graphic released. farm trucking and caring. Advantage to gains in speed acceleration agility routes. Elusive in this spirit moves in juke moves I'll take that. And he's you know 61 have those answers to different receivers Greg he at right guard hit two polyps together. From I've really got to freak out three. Five if it jut as drug bills training camp 888552. fifty. well we'll get into the discussion but I EJ Manuel how much do you care about how the offense looks in this portion of the pre season. The training camp workouts at saint John Fisher how much does that matter as we continue to evaluate EJ Manuel again early on and the offense has not. Look good at this point coming up on the show today we will be talking with the cal of the revelations of the 2013 seasons he'll be joining us its export. David Roosevelt York native back with the Buffalo Bills assign this week as camp began. You'll join us at seven. Our this guy here at eight and it that you might hear a poll from foxsports.com. Which your bills give the other day. As his article up there website we'll talk to him about the Sammy Watkins extravaganza phenomenon what have you wanna call it. but politically the talk the 803055888. 550 Q 550 to join us here on WGR. When you live from. Google's training camp XCEO John Fisher College. And everything. Your first your players do good. It's like you experienced these guys here for everybody so a lot of you can create as many places I mean did every person on the couple movies he's not Howard Simon show with Howard Simon hey Jeremy White wall to wall coverage on feels great. ER ICD dot com and presented by UB dermatology in Western New York human skin care protect your skin schedule. You know college agitating for life. Welcome back to saint John Fisher college and Pittsburgh the bills on the practice here at 8 o'clock. This morning it is open to the public you do not need a ticket they're off tomorrow. The Friday and Saturday practices or night sessions they're both at 6 PM you do it that all the tickets have been distributed. That Sunday at 2 o'clock practice that is the schedule for the rest of the week here Fisher 8030550. To join us. How much does it matter that all out EJ Manuel looks. In the training camp portion of the state John Fisher portion of the pre season. Let us at the outset of mine you wanna talk about it can't. Bullet to wide open court WG right ahead. get caught in my Tokyo they got well they would at this time when it was badly lit. Kevin Kolb yet what does that look what what he looked really give it every day trip here in the area couple offbeat. No. I never really lit it up. I'll let let Rick not Rick would it up but he didn't concern at this point. That I three price ultimately up there we're that was really a competition now I've got hurt viewed the job and yeah the first scrimmage against bills he was that you really terrible you know what where anybody could he couldn't move the football that they finally got the red I don't think they had that took nine drives to finally get an anti Semitic it was a pass interference drive whereas. Jeff duel through double touchdowns via yep yes they didn't I hated he was lighting it up last year now. Well my point was being nearly equity religion critical at this point because they're they're all months before the season even starts and by the need to panic and stay. There's a lot of time before September 7 it and. The router is like the problem is he should look good. An when he a lot of data quarterbacks look good it's geared to it's the same coordinator it is the same offense a lot of the players are on the same. He should let. My point is it me did I wouldn't exactly the say he's arrived but each asking him to look comfortable in this office. At the beginning of training camp in year number remember what the bill said he had the entire offseason and he was able to work out he's he's in better shape he was able. Throw with his receivers let's run around get ready for the draft and do all that. Oh he she would look better that he has in the first three days of training camp is that a lot. 8030 but if it's 88855250. Short that was that was get right back Jamaal gonna be joined by Miguel The bills quarterback will be with year training camp. That Roosevelt coming up at seven wanna talk to you web poll is up by Vijay at weather dot how he performs at training camp matters his evaluation. But at W your pocket dot com policy in a real factor 88 but if the that was a special request. That the current. Lake property these are Obie called start things off so. We played here temperature with the guilt the quarterback out of USC who was ousted again we all that last year a revelation. 2013 back for more eager to fourteen welcome to the show how with thanks to countless thank you good morning. You know I know I know you're all about 2014. That the past is the past but. Let's reflect back 2013 and how how enjoyable was that first season for US Iraqi. It was but I see it as a risky. Much and a lot of new seeing some home. You know it was a different life as far as life and as far as on the field. Playing a different group of guys in came in. No got to put a good Bryant and home build my enough to be feel we you know got Mario Williams we lose. And Darius and in the odious as those guys so. Feel filler is privileged. To be on the field in the those is so. Every time just automated system. It was it seemed like it does watching you a very smooth transition. From USC to the pros for you where you. Surprised at all by that I mean or did you you know you did play at a high profile program we've got a surprise you to be that comfortable you're one in the NFL. You know you know I have high expectations for myself and you know and as have high expectations for. Performance and do so when I got to You know Biscayne the scheme was pretty simple for me in maybe it wasn't complicated to the point where. You know. I didn't really no one known. It was just pretty much straightforward it's who deserved you know play football. And I took over act Erika great miscues. Especially govern in this who. In went out there in the traditionalist move Foreman did pre season. Pre season with a went through preceded you in XP was too. You know you know to a two got a Scopes have potency had to fill it and that was OK so it Was that is is so good in I was just 100% in. That's that was the speed the toughest part seems like players offense or defense what they commit from college you'll always talk about them maybe the first thing notices the speed is at a different level yes definitely different level. Because you have you know you The promotes make the difference for me because they move into is as. And so this would meet the game that much faster. There everywhere else is pretty much the same number of SP deep deep incidents he bit. Did you mainly. How fast they move. determines offense to gain from the game move. Which when you were not drafted. Where it was their initial. Disappointment was there at all a phase of getting over the disappointment or. From day one was it motivation if you like right out of the heated even where about are for yourself that it drove you more than anything else what was that like. It was more like a process. I was disappointed at one point we're not getting drafted because off of life I was good enough. Home to be somewhere. You know and in atrophy. Every Q what did you your kids like the good enough to be drafted so my expectations of being drafted it was you're and home. Does this just my opinion. But it. You know on the flip side of it it drove me that uses it motivated me is it if pushed me. If pushed me hard in a causes. You got before. Come into the because often that my back was against the law and I had to do so that makes happen so the first thing first I had to prove myself and every the made sure it is you know. I do something information that would you know. He could point eight he had to a quote about me. The probably minister illustrate again not the biggest guy in the world at least in the media guide at five days ago that's accurate or not. And I'm not gonna ask. But but you know it for years people talk about what the receivers got bigger it tells you wanna get beat corners you're not a big corner. How many times did you hear that over the years that you know hey you know in terms of NFL I'll lose big there and you're not the biggest in the world to get tired here. Right I've been narratives themselves. Ask there's those school. Everybody question Mathias. Everybody courses. Who do are you you know. You give them you. Just any day you know you you know at a typical corner you know if so. I never really listen to a because it is when monopoly quarter from high school we have to now been going against guys. You know to foresees so a bit over the of my life. Being used to being taught in the so the well you know you go find it villages as being you know if united as a corner. You go farther than just being short so well not much of mommy go for that was my my quick news. In just my instincts. They're calling these people back into hey it's the delegates yet a Google search type in the cal touchdown Miami you know if you would happen. You know A do if they seen it if they seen it it is if they did end there that. So you mention Lester made things really comfortable for you in this scheme OK so he's going to have a new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. What kind of changes are there is there something you can explain to our listeners in terms of the philosophy of how has changed from Mike News Jim Schwartz from your perspective as a quarterback. We're. This game hasn't changed a Wednesday changed dramatically. You know alive our crazy I just for the right now we got Fordham that you had three. On soul. this this the only difference but everything goes on the banking and we pretty much to be you know pretty simple stupid thing no man. Home. zone. For the most part you know complete takeover competitive cars we play man to man. You know you face you know pressured quarterback. It was up the blitz that has like we've heard you know that Schwartz in Detroit. He didn't blitz as much as did here last year what about the plans as far as blitz packages answer. This and a relentless and is a normal. We got we got some business those. We. Know that we got of everything on the everything. You know bus leaves. For the season I feel like.

    Watkins because is that good that opens things up for Robert Woods Mike Williams . And whoever else is going to be on the roster once he gets to that level if he gets. So yeah that's
    don't each is that -- I get that. But what about an Darrent Williams can prove it to me you deserve that big contract what about Jerry Hughes who had his first double digit sack season is about to be a freeagent proved to me that you deserve. The money I think he's going to be looking for on the market them Mike Williams you gotta show me you can you know not have incidents off the field -- -- Same thing shall we don't have
    -- him. Who's the other -- he said. Typical like Williams -- Mike Williams a marshaled ours those are the main two -- Marshaled ours has to prove that he has the mentality to do it and Mike Williams is used to. Keep his nose clean but. Those are those are really the four guys that you look to Wednesday they

When the -- says the football Friday it's official it's football Friday bills and Steelers Sunday and let's talk about it with a head coach bill Doug Brown joining us from. The stadium good morning mr. -- how are you today. Outstanding football Friday. Let's go get fired up by EJ back on Sunday correct correct okay how would you look. This week. I'm gonna pay the same thing I told my wife. She's like how we look at me look I said well he's been out for four weeks you know so. You do you want me is. To have to make you feel good to say he's been unbelievable every -- been on the money it's been outstanding it's great we wanna go when she said yes luckily it's only -- But but now he's had a good week. You know obviously. You know he's not made every throw you know just come on back but he's really worked hard in both he and bad. Have done a nice job so. We're working towards that you know planet perfection. It's Wear a brace on that me. I USC where does Leo nowadays it's it's hard I think we all remember you know Dan Marino Owen and Jim Kelly may have those. Those braces on it you can really see you don't mean they were people here. You know but now with you know all all the stuff that they have out there you know it really got to do it what does he Wear -- and now we're -- via the -- itself. You know he'll look to things to make sure that he protective as as. As that aware of something around his reps in on time. I think Jeremy telling us what you -- if meetings right you guys have what -- meetings yes. Have you talked about what if EJ looks rusty but what if you're you have to go to the thought that you'd you be willing to make call on that. One lawmaker called map around and do whatever it takes to win that's my job. What -- what what if Vijay wants to run the ball a lot of I don't want them. There's no what if that ambient Smart down on him and I again I got a question of the day you know. You know -- -- is that -- freak injury and you know what happened to him which I I can understand that. But I think you know at the same time you know these players like I said before very competitive but they have to be Smart. You know when we got to get the first down and we gotta say -- hit on the quarterback can get about we've got to run it as much as we can go down say the hit on the quarterback. In on now in the goal line comes to play that when you have to be Smart you know that that was a tough one you know when when you're about ready to score you need to go -- -- make sure you protect yourself and as ways to do that so. We hope that when people talk about experience. We hope the experiences that he's gone through now are David help him as we go forward and being Smart when he runs. Football and -- on a designed run I'm curious to know what common people -- went -- what I know what else -- it more I don't know would -- put -- not to scramble obviously he needs to scramble and make plays no question about being -- -- but right but what I read option like designed runs where would you tell him to keep us and run it and let the running backs take it more often well let. Dictate I mean that's dictate what do you think he's -- a -- I know but I think you -- be Smart and has ways of doing it where he's not expose this much of their immunity if we wanna do that. There's other options we can do on the outside. You know we saw or you -- Jeff tool on the read option and then throw drag the other the other week you know there's a lot of things that we can do and implement. And the same thing because you know as we're together in and the same thing with the systems you know this three's new system with the players now. The NFL that the great thing that they they give you extra time. You know when your new coach. Now when you really think about the extra time yes it benefits everyone but the person it benefits the most with that extra time is the quarterback. And when you look at the quarterbacks that we have on our roster none -- more available for that extra time so as we. As we grow offensively defensively and special teams. You're gonna seem more to this offense as it grows and we start to understand the players' strengths and weaknesses and what we need to do to win. Is though the player. Reference to another read option throws that the wanna Stevie. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We love that play we are talking about the next day they just a very looked very. Like -- like battle as well as collateral -- not meant when I go back. Went as a rushing attempt yeah what goes OK it was -- -- -- -- because but let's try and I'm in the press box they announced it. Atlanta right okay that's been called now rushing attempts and traffic but but I guess -- you know really go -- let me -- close it all depends on where it is the -- quarterback is going to be held -- a little bit you know little bit. But I guess the point you making a lot of bills fans would be probably excited here is that. The offense is an ever changing ever growing kind of thing. Always always ever -- don't I mean. I mean were always looking for ways that fit into the system you know like if someone said. -- need to get back down a wishbone and run the the veer option I mean why not gonna do that you know Sam -- Things that we can grow upon and get better -- would have better understanding of what the players can do and put them in better position and make an -- more. Where people just go. Up they'll line up in this formation located doing this this through this and making them defend the field those are things that we're always grown. On the veer option frank summer pretty tonight. And -- your option guy I mean that's our program here bill said coach Doug grow this year and WGR now the returner BJ coach means the return of our. You know every minute a value waiting AJ in the 2038 and he's -- beautiful and the right into the great thank you for this you don't have to worry about it is trying to about pain though we know more about every day it's a beautiful thing. But of any look good in its first four plus can't I I thought he certainly looked comfortable with the job as a rookie so going lord now as he returns to the lineup. I last you what you're looking for from him your address was would be wins. Beyond the obvious what what are some of the things are looking for from Vijay now and instant number two well first I would put a perspective on things and I think that's important. You know you're looking at a quarterback that missed time in the pre season. Okay. You look at -- a quarterback that who did get reps in the precinct so it's a little bit of a catch 22 there and then you we watch him come in as a rookie. And really. Does well the only game that I would say he did not play well with that went -- first road game. I just a man and that can happen to a lot of young players all right that's not what we want to happen. But it can't happen and it did it. I comes back in place strong the next week OK in the Cleveland game. You know we feel good about where it was in the Cleveland game being ready to win that game for us -- -- gets injured. So we saw the steps that he was taking. In getting better. Now what happens is this if we're all sitting there and and I know what we're our goal is our goals say hey let's let's pick up right where we left off for them will be okay. But that's not as easy as that. You know four weeks we've worked on a lot of the mental aspect of things you know we worked on the training the preparation and doing that. But again I'm a big believer in going out on the field so you know he's gonna go on -- field this week. And we feel very comfortable put them out there but again everyone's going to be very critical of him. And you know he's still work in progress and still pushing themselves. Know it's -- I would absolutely look at it going I expected to pick up right where he left off except you're -- why don't because that that's what generates. Great talk. Or or it's it's a Smart opinion from local talks about -- that's okay well. -- -- it's our -- area in every looking at a game with. You know we've talked about this before the year you're going to be Ron heavy Pittsburgh against the -- has as had their -- -- trouble this season just I know gonna be run well. -- -- because they're doing research on here's one little step but I found I like a lot on first and ten they're giving up five and a half yards per carry -- they can be any shock to say the five yards to carry -- first content you're in good second downs good third downs and that's the kind of thing might lead to often. Of success. I just hope your right. I why I think I think the only thing it it's like last week I think that you know we showed the ability. You know and again and only having -- bring up last week why did that -- the put me in the tank. But. Let's let us I know you sell well and I went -- here say if they bring up next week oh my -- that this thing they know we're not talking. But you know here we are but -- would rookie free agent quarterback in Jeff. Knowing that we play Kansas City there are gonna do everything they can't stop the run. You know and we're able to you know run the football for 240 yards which I can't believe you were on the ball for 204 -- you know what that's another subject. The point is is that I think and everything that you have to do because the other thing we did last week who became a little bit more balanced on first now. You know not that we were at a point where we were crazy we were like 53. Point something percent. You know running on first down forty you know six points something 47%. Wrong when. You know we will and I think we loosened it up earlier on you know by -- some throws on first now. So I think anything that you do in this game. You've got to do it -- some type of balance and you got to do we keep and the defense you know little you know a little off guard with a map honed in on on certain points. You're up against Dick will bowl week and a hall of Famer I was wondering if it's. -- give or take a moment as a kind of fun to think here's a guy who is a you know founding father of big time defensive structures in the NFL and you get to take him on like this is like a mount Rushmore of a defense kind of guy. Well I got the value -- your homework I think Panama bunched now. I mean I you know -- I've always said publicly I've even said. It's it's always been the greatest challenge for me in game planning was going against coach -- Not to take away from any other defensive coordinator but I've always thought that he is on the best job breaking down your protection meaning that. You know he has a good feel what you gonna do protection wise he's gonna make you make adjustments and and he's gonna get somebody free somewhere common -- -- quarterback. So for me. You know it's always been an unbelievable challenge and a great deal of respect but. I like to get to the point where I don't have to face those guys you know on a consistent weekly basis I've faced guys that really may -- don't know what to do one. Yeah at if they would be a lot better if there if they're sending. You know he's zone blitz obviously is a big thing he runs -- -- who's gonna come -- it harder on is it harder on. And the backs who have them pick up the right guys know who's coming who has the bigger challenge well. It's it's a little bit on both but I would say if if if if you're gonna say at the end of the day -- that's the hardest on it's it's the quarterback. It's the quarterback because you know bills don't pressure you and they'll they'll to trap via net and that's that's the one that you gotta be careful about. You know because if you have throws design on the outside against zone pressure which I like throwing a bombing outside vs zone pressure. And all the sudden they show you his own pressure look at -- to -- he has been -- to traffic where all the stuff on the outside and give you the stuff from the middle. So I think that's what that that's what gets difficult and you know went way as you grow in and when we see these these. What so called the league or franchise quarterback the one thing that I think is common with all the franchise quarterbacks. If you they have a -- a great deal of experience going against these type of defense is. They see it on a week to week basis people always trying to you know get to them a full ma'am. But what you see is they're able to get to plays. Okay. That can take advantage of that mass for one thing that we're always looking to grow to be -- able to check the plays that can take advantage once we know what to do. We talk put this to -- -- for many fans might not know exactly which mean it's where a defense kind of masks cover two man coverage for the drop in his own. It it's its own coverage and they run and people to the deep half of the field so there running. You know -- pick a corner and run -- to the theft of a field where normally you know you're thinking back corners at the third the the fender and -- take away earlier outside roads and and really the middle of field is where you wanna attack. So it's it's a two. -- -- is following up what watching the game so far this season but you say EG has been your best quarterback at making those throws over the middle. -- I think I think our quarterbacks have been you know that made some good throws over the middle to. You know I think each one of them throws oh you know each one of them has a certain. All that they throw a little bit better that that's ever was just like a picture right I mean hey he's a fast ball rally at the good curve he has a good breaking ball. You know so each one of those got -- different the one thing that we need all of our quarterbacks to do well I think we've seen us. You know we have two players on our team that have the ability to run by guests. And not a lot of teams have that we have to you know -- is good when and TJ Graham. And the one thing that we can't afford to do we throw the ball to those guys is it's -- it did not. Throw it further you know. Natural far enough and all the wars we can't be short on both rose and we've been short almost rose was when we throw it deep and you have the running go get it. Those two cats can go get it and school and that's the one thing that we have to do a very good job -- keep going to keep developing and our offense because. Once we have those deep vertical threats then everything opens up for guys like. You know Stevie Robert Woods are tight ends are back because. You know right now you know -- brackets steaming into his good of a job -- -- -- on him and try to take him out of the game. And and and and that's the one thing when you -- ball deep they can't they can't do both. Quick before the -- quick update health. Playing status -- feel good I'm good at that. So they're probably won't get even ask me about my health that would all the stuff that's going on what you -- because it depends how much Tommy willing to stay late with a final but at least. Show like some compassion. I it's not. It was actually on my list of things to bring up with you but the quarterback and other issues you know you gonna have to prioritize in. We got to that's going to be if you if you wanna might -- wants it like me for who I am in my character map because of my position in my title years ago. And I completely up to change my mind set then. I understand I have that the Syracuse connection I have I have I have a lot of guys -- are -- our our blood and run an -- -- -- you're a downstate guy syllable Kayla battled all -- -- -- from the Bronx Politico. On on now I get it. And now. How it all -- That's your annual salary -- guy I thought I I was on Long Island you know -- you know don't you know guys have clearly will -- -- -- -- one neighbor bought a boat the other neighbor had a bye to your -- and -- on the other it had to -- a better car as well -- on -- on network I was gonna -- -- like that the Bronx though -- period and couldn't -- -- so we voted you off to the Bronx and -- not just -- but if you're willing neighbors fewer minutes I apple believe me -- it we're here it'll -- I don't wanna hold you for meetings. I'm here. I -- you'd guys that it's important now want to make sure the fans you guys the guys have great responsibility good question that the fans want now. I have a chance like Geiger felt -- Tommy can't be after game angle on -- podium and all the fans they mimic an ethical questions. Quick update on some of the injured guys Spiller woods Goodwin. Okay go to war thriller -- Spiller fully healthy. Good yep but I don't know if anyone's ever fully Daniel but but projected to -- seemed really good last week obviously good to go woods. But I feel good about. Goodwin good okay. Are right now there was -- actually did when -- about the stress of the job with what happened with John Fox that would that would have with Gary Kubiak don't don't don't don't try to be nice to me now. -- so -- not like product which -- I mean now like if I list of questions. No. Cut now -- I don't you know it. Don't -- I don't wanna put you on the spot and not do that here's my notes on the show becomes not -- -- here's my question. Here's a question for years we've heard about coaches in the long hours and the sleeping in the office and all that stuff. My take on it yes it might could get done this shorter amount of time okay precious what you put yourself -- we don't know. World profession that we chosen OK I mean I chose this profession it's obviously -- no you know what the perfectionist but but he but I think the men and women of our military. Okay the debt that's pressure okay surgeons that I have life lifesaving surgeries that that's pressure okay. All right. How about the families. Where both parents to work in. You know they of people picked him up there is that trying to get them involved in sports which -- feel in an economy that's tough. That's pressure and pay all the bills to me that's real life pressure. What we do -- we chose to do it. And you know -- if we can't handle it you know then that maps on us as individuals. To you don't think the job could lead to. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I bet you your job if you don't take care yourself you know Stan you can say that the that the stress of the job I mean when -- rate has come out quarterly fees guys. And you tell me and I stressed that a little bit of those ratings start to go down and people start not to listen you guys. All the sudden it's like rule what are we -- to where we're going after this you know coming -- -- -- things uncomfortable but I don't I don't wanna make it. I'm a big believer hate what part of a pressure let's talk about the men and women in the military what their families go through. You know when their over fight in another country for the freedoms that we have. And let's go to the families that are that are working two jobs three jobs doing everything we can't single mom -- doing that whatever it may be. In my life the way I I look at -- that's pressure. That's real pressure OK all right and and and some of it's not chosen. Least at least we chose the professional war. I last question for -- -- -- -- answer no I could just I was in person right is it. Other coaches might approach it as ever it's the end of the world that I don't you know get a -- now -- me what what what what I don't. What hurts me. Is is I feel. The the pressure that I've put on myself. Is that I feel like I have a responsibility. You know for the region you know for Weston you -- for fans so. So -- I have this visualization of you know. You know when we don't win a game. You know our people -- people are and Monday morning you know people like what's going -- the bills they had fifteen doing you know a lot of pressure -- now you re engineer and when I get around town I I feel you know why I I feel bad and I I feel awful and it. Physically it hurts it really does hurt me and and I think that that's the one thing that I have a tough time deal -- because. You know as far as myself I I'm doing the best job like I know that but but I don't I don't wanna do for myself. I can you know yeah I care about winning -- -- -- but it's more important me to do it for the fans and the people around. And and that's how I've always approached this game. I got it and he just confirms something. In high school you played baseball right. Did you really that clean up behind Bobby the -- know Bobby Bobby is a year old enemy. You don't make tweeted me this morning this and we're trying to. No -- I think the order it was a great story. It was a great. Urban legend we both played for the same coach -- Bobby was a year old enemy to you he was never on that you're now on the team -- we were I was on the team after the puck and after him but you know with a great -- -- route and say could Bobby -- Me the big guys like my sides and you know we've always try to you know you wanna come out play football you know on and me. I'm not gonna brag about myself but I was. A great baseball player -- say that you know I batted you know. For 98 now I mean I was like 300 pounds with a because I was -- -- a lot of -- I think adults you know to. So. The the reserve Elijah was -- -- if I would have batted you know. Before him and he -- at -- me that I would have been pro baseball player that that never really occurred that's a that's an urban legend a good story. -- can we change it to make it a real story would you mind if we just -- -- little in this -- an age you can remain humble and where my -- demand I'm going into their -- there and all -- don't -- our own quote the -- owes his baseball career to me close upload Mel McDonald no not at all not at all never come on the whole all right fine and where to get in trouble. Such a stickler for truth I you know I am a mystical for truth and I'm -- for rules are right. Well coach thank you as always for your time -- hate got a good job there Brian thank you I'm just that we we're asking the same questions your wife is asking them that was a good sign but I'm just telling you I mean I that's what -- saying -- like it because it's you know she's asking questions of people arrested. And your dogs okay. Can you believe that you're you know -- trying to give people a sense of you know how you feel you know without without. You know -- going crazy I mean I mean but that's how you feel and literally after the game. I was I was sick to my stomach just literally. And I left the locker room when -- in my car. I -- a little bit and got behind the escort and and I got out quickly. I went home I really and I just didn't want a distant wanna talk I was -- -- a -- -- felt awful related to the next week's game is a lifesaver. You can just look at our original game and the what's tough is what's tough is when you're in that position that you don't want CP EP you don't want people to feel like that. Because you're you're the leader rag on them saying -- can't see you down they can't -- down I can't you know the players the coaches organization fans you know they can't they can't they can't see that part of -- so. And people say. You know -- is -- -- at the top that that's when it becomes law only win when you have to take those moments. To to to feel that way you have to take them by yourself. And I think that's what is that the top part of the job. Because you know when I come back and you know -- a lot of good things that we deal I mean you know when you look at what we're doing here what we need to improve law. Red zone touchdowns which was 31 in the league right now at 42%. Okay. We have to do a better job we're gonna make some changes in what we're doing in the -- okay starting this week. All right. And then the last two games we played we -- of all over okay we've have been minus three internal well. He can't he can't win playing football when -- minus three and before that we were taken away the ball least twice a game we have taken the ball away -- the last game. So we've got to get that stuff right and do the things that a necessary to win and that's what I have been preaching to the players I'm sure you'll tell me I'll ask but I got Tommy what changes you're making in the red zone kind of it's I'm not argue with what what -- what do what do you identify and make some changes that are red zone and if we don't score you're gonna be like. Got it and you make any change -- don't know well is still is still not doing now we score. And we were on the same stuff -- -- -- those changes -- -- believable what you identified as the problems there. Where we're gonna do some different things I mean we're we're gonna we're we're gonna going to some different. I would still -- Oakley we're gonna do some different things and you know because if we keep doing things the same way. How -- answer the questions that we. Coach you make any change gosh he's not doing it you know so when when you're doing well song and you know he can't keep doing the same thing we've always talked about that. That that's insanity.
