And the bills played the geez would have been would have banned the Indianapolis Colts it was Peyton Manning's record breaking year he started the first half came on the second half the bills beat. The Indianapolis Colts at home in like one of the worst snowstorms. That I've ever sat in the building especially in at at the time ruffles the stadium for so it was not. In interesting day today won't be as bad however. The snow is expected to start soon if it hasn't already Orchard Park and is it kind of expect the kind of go all day you are at high is today of 32 so at freezing. On I would expect it to be COLT there's not much wind to report out. Nom but it is going to be a chilly one and you are expecting some snow today there is it winter weather advisory and that will be in effect.

Last clash show we were talking about the fancy I'll continue taking your fans questions this morning you know 3055185. To two by fifty and we've got Dave who is not sitting on hold will get you gave right here. Behavior on bills game day welcome and what he got from. I heard so they're in the playoffs are now he offers around. And are you a little about the wider here and you know part you played terrorist slandering. Problem Benjamin sterling Shepperd I need to play one. I need to play want okay now this PP hourly. It to repeat here is a PP it okay so I am stuck its. Player tube put in the situation you wanna look for a boom or bust potential here. I'm an an obviously you want to hope for the boom but. What you wanna do is you wanna go with a guy that is likely going to get is the most likely that's gonna teach you touched on the situation this is fear flex Aysu right. Are actually a former wide receiver wide receiver to OK it was a wide receiver once it started out Michael Crabtree. OK so he's a Euro needing points here is based which economy. Yeah it. Benjamin I think gives you the best opportunity for touchdown. But in the PPR format I think you're forced I think your hand is forced to play Lander here. He's going to be easy to try to get you at close to ten plus targets in the game we just not negate that with Benjamin in the offense that Carolina boasts each week. I'm taken a taken injured or feel okay about it. But he's gonna be the one I think they give you the best opportunity to get points in the PPR format. And he's likely gonna be the only one of those free tickets 200 yards a touchdown mean accompanied beget yet you know ten targets in a hundred yards. You're gonna feel good about what that output got you so I'm going Landry. And am wishing you luck different. Are appreciated and much no problem Dave thanks for calling. 8030551. Tripoli 550 to 550 taking your fantasy questions here this morning on bills game day I also wanna talk about quite a few things this morning. The bill's face off against what I think as one of the most potent offenses in the NFL and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the than most potent because of three factors in the three players. Not so much factors. If three guys to me obviously Ben Roethlisberger lady on ballot Antonio Brown. Potentially the best receiver in football potentially the best running back overall reading beckoned football. And then you look at one of the top five in maybe one of the best quarterbacks. In this era we're living in the Tom Brady Peyton Manning in any you can put Ben Roethlisberger right up there in the conversation with the best. Quarterbacks of the past decade or two I think I think it's it's no question however as it's well documented and as of late he has struggled. On the road today he goes on the road and plays in buffalo hover. I don't know whether or not the road struggles argued anything other than him leaving home I don't think it has anything to do with the noise levels at another stadium because if it. At that case. I expect able to in I mean a lot of Pete abs are patriots a lot of Steelers fans in buffalo today. That terrible towel will be swinging freely today. At the capsule for bills fans sake I hope you brought your loud voices because there will be quite a number of Pittsburgh Steelers fans. Threw out the stadium today made a 30 fight 51 Tripoli by two. Who has more pressure to perform today is that the bills defense or is it the bills' offense because. Hear me out here. Last week there was a lot of pressure for the bills to put points on the board they knew that they'd likely have to score thirty which they did they lost 38 to 24 last week. Obviously it's well documented they gave up 29 consecutive points. In route to losing while being up 2049 at one point in the third quarter of that game to give up 29 points consecutively the offense just. They disappeared. Tyrod Taylor disappeared the bills' defense was put in difficult positions to succeed and that is what I really wanna focus on today is. Ten this bills' offense. Hope. I don't wanna called a struggling bills defense because as much as they have not been great the haven't been bad last week. You can put blame on that they'll give it to think they earned. Blamed. In that game however. Do I think that eight take a bulk of the blame I don't I think. For the most part is bills offense shoulders more of the blame in last week's loss that I think is bills' defense does and it's because. They put that defense in positions. To fail and I think that's the most important thing and that's what you see. On a week to week basis from Ben Roethlisberger is heat shields. Eight I think a pretty or Pittsburgh defense he keeps his offensive unit on the field. In debt in return. Keeps a weaker or a pork Steelers defense off the field as well it'll real fight 51 Tripoli five to fight it the who's got more pressure today. Is it the bills' defense or is it Tyrod Taylor in the bills' offense met in buffalo you're on bills game day welcome different. Our gut yourself. Mart. Very so matchup that we look at. I have I got to start to guys. Possible or they have. Are hired Jason Witten. We don't own. Are you here and camera mayor. It's a tough spot because Jason Witten has put up a couple of zeros lately. Just hasn't been the targets in its because I think that cold Beasley has kind of taken over that short yardage rule on that team I think Coolio right now is lost as questionable. Mohammed son who was out so here's what. That the problem that I am coming with right now is that. It's a 4 PM game and you really can't sit on the inactive lists because if you sit and wait you mean not to the matchup you want. And the other guy I think Marvin Jones senior is out I just had not not out of the lineup today but I think he's just out of my decision making in this. He hasn't bend the player that he was earlier in the season and I think it's because golden Tate's kind of figured out his rule now with this team without cal without Calvin Johnson at a side of them. I'm I think I'm deathly gone with Cameron Meredith at at some point here in this game I think he's a star for you. How what I'd stick around and and I think north Dale's plays an afternoon I'm trying to look right now today I don't know that I live for clack gamer they'd the even in game. Modified are enough for him before I give you and an exact answer because that's the thing kind of have to look at Matt. Is. How long can you wait to make a decision on this. Due to the inactives coming out so you're looking add it looks lie a week. So Detroit's the 1 o'clock game and their facing off against Chicago summed up the taking Meredith bear I think Detroit secondary is pretty good but I think it's still a safe play OK dale plays tonight so here's what you gonna do. I think I'd like Marvin Jones is out what you wanna do was wait a bit inactive list comes out if the inactives come out and Julio Jones is out of the game and can't play. Obviously then you go Jason Witten he's the 830 game tonight on NBC. So that's what I would do for our U I'd hold off if Coolio plays you you played Julio he's gonna get us targets if he's not playing then go with Jason Witten. For the night game and that's really the only thing you can do is kind of hope and sit and wait that clue Jones place. All right that that's why and and they are right now actually you you have Lille in right now. Yeah I am flexible nano as currently written and night inside. Julio. Southern and a plan that's worried because they have their man talks the much as he would equally. Right but I still think that at same time if you have Julio Jones in. He's out there you just got to put about this he'll get his targets you know he's gonna get. At minimum a piece heard he's gonna get five targets in you know that Leo Jones has been at least do something with those herder are not so I feel good about that. Go with. With Julio unless he's out and then which case obviously don't play him and you go without decent. Are there are good luck Matt all right thank you met for the call their let's go with cell in buffalo he's got a fan's question for when he got up. I MA longtime listener first. And this anarchy show. And I am in a playoff game today and I it nobody that the beard he grew Ruder Kramer or coal usage here. Okay well you know what Derek just came in studio for this to to tag team this with me so what do we got out. I'll give market he blocks later but I need this now I gotta I guess they're all about it at all to a cellular field. Saw I've been a playoff game and my eight by. Highly ranked team has had bad running backs all year but I had such a wide receivers they carried me I need that one running back later we go. It's either and high power. Rashad Jennings. Were gains irks us are want I know it's not great. Who who are epic one. Sell your running backs are as close the weather outside. I'm stuck between Starks and Jennings and this is a PP our form itself. Yeah yeah. Okay all column Margaret you've got to hear. Us to the the good thing about Jennings that he's on contests in the back to the bad thing about Jennings obviously is the giants to run the ball very well what are interpret for Bernard at the I still think though order it. It PPR format Jennings is gonna get you points because he's gonna make catches out of that he does it pretty regularly. And when you look at the match up against Dallas now. Dallas' defense by the numbers has done really well on especially all season long and I think it's because our offense has really just been on the field a lot. And their defense is it asked to do a whole look of a lot because droppings were the cares away form. On the other side Green Bay. I don't know Seattle defense I don't think they're gonna run the ball necessarily well against that unit. And what you got to go with I think here is the upside in the passing game and I think that's Jennings and Jennings gives you that passing attack. He's also going to be the guy in the red zone where addicts Starks is likely also the diner it's a huge doesn't did use that. That passing attack that you that your gonna do it would Jennings in with James Starks. Really what you're gonna hope for in the situation is that he scores in the red zone that's really your biggest hope they don't run the ball they're running is the short pass attack. And he just doesn't give you that seemed dynamic out of the backfield so I gotta go Jennings here I would close. I would begrudgingly agree with Nate here I I really don't like Rashad Jennings based on the fact that the giants run the ball so poorly. Bites. The fact that penal Starks is playing in Seattle and there's not a lot of potential there for. They it's more of a boomer boss played for Starks and it is Jennings. Yeah site adding with a safer pick it Jennings and I think wit in a playoffs you have to go the safer god in your gonna have to go the boom or bust that it if it's. You know the last game of the year and you're trying to get into the playoffs that's one thing. But this week your your firmly and and you need a win I think you gotta go the safer pick and I think gets Jennings. I have my culinary now I. So that you I. I'm just worried about high tower sale because obviously Ingram is he's the guy that gets the ball of those carries he's healthy he's been he's healthy that's the thing is if he's coming off last week like he did with that injury that can caution issue that he may not be getting the twenty plus touches that he normally gets. You know obviously they do kind of have ran back by committee to go with the hot hand but I just right now the worst is the hot hand the worst thing is is that Sean Payton heats fantasy owners when it comes running next and the wide receivers. So I would definitely avoid high tower with the potential of the died via and it's bush against Tampa beat defense who is just kind of really haven't coming out party as of late. They did damage to that Seattle offense two weeks ago I like Tampa and I think that you're safe place got to be Jennings here. I'm on getting island W and you're absolutely. I knew he said he personally shame yeah I got to. I got inside receiver back Tom Landry. Mine and so they carry allow air so yeah and our social work at their art of getting I guess our pocket 9 o'clock cooers. Sounds gets outs not get nine. 8030551. AAA 550 to fight it do we got John in the falls John it shoot me your question a man what he got. Our good morning guys good morning the only thing I ideally rated question not direct my lineup and sent out. It didn't look put quarterback. Don't have a lot of salary left starts with Tyrod Taylor and go down through Brock out Wyler and they'll. Carson went source Sam Bradford. Under ignore. A nationalist RE three and I don't think I wanna let. Lee portal either but the older also choices so assuming I don't wanna choke or around the rest of my lineup while quarterback you. Grant about it crew. You know what I actually don't feel old too bad about Sam Bradford today. I know Jackson break deploying Jacksonville's Eric sicker you are okay. I know Jacksonville boasts a pretty good pass defense. But here's the thing. When they get to the red zone they can't really run the ball picking it. The only place I think that Minnesota can generally run the ball is between the twenties not after the twenties what they do in the red zone as they throw the ball to Kyle Rudolph. And they also have to find digs who's gonna be running those routes in the reds and as well there're short passing. They're much likes the much like Green Bay where their running game really is a short passing game. John and as much as I I just can't tell I can't. With confidence. Or better tell you especially in a public forum where I'm gonna get killed if I tell you the wrong thing here I couldn't possibly tell you to go with Tyrod Taylor RG three or Brack passed while I. I just can't do that with the with with a good conscious. So. Sam Bradford as much as he's bad I think pretty pork he's got a bad offered to buy it's not all Bradford hiding two day. Is a different story I think you saw what Tyrod Taylor was able to do in the second half with the Eagles offense is able to do in the second half against. The Jacksonville Jaguars their bad football team and eventually that bad miss kind of boils over and by 102 half comes around are able to do things I just think. What you're gonna want to hope for is in the red zone. Sam Bradford in to get you points because they passed the reds that they don't run so that's why I think I'm and take Bradford. Over the options they're off Wyler just had I know that the Houston Texans are playing on Indianapolis. And I know the last time they played Indy Brock Oslo had the best game of his starting career. But I just don't see that happening on the road. And he faces up against Andrew Luck I just think dwarfs him in in so many ways and any of Tyrod in snow. We don't know what he can do when it's ninety degrees and sunny. In it through the air he just doesn't bring you that element to the air so I I gotta say it's got to be Bradford just because he's gonna get. Be the volume of throws that she wanted to premiere quarterback gold gold Bradford and on an infield. Better than if you're gonna have tyra or Brock that's what. Yeah I figured accurately Tyrod it would go meet a threat running and I hate I didn't think Pittsburgh. I don't think that's earth they're not much earlier to link. Export in the rush their their top ten rush defense. So I I think feel good about that because like I said and what you wanna look at is how all that how each of those offenses utilized or quarterback. And when you don't have a running senior forced in that short passing game that West Coast style. And that's what he does he's he's accurate passer and the shortstop in held each I think at least a touchdown or two in the red zone naturally which wanna look for second two tons yards but the touchdowns or what rack up points and it's. Our our John have a good I have a good one today and good luck in your eye and offensively paper hanger hold. Stick with me I gotta get to break here when we come back we will continue on our fan a seed nest I've got sale as you heard when he called an and his status question he'll join me at 9 o'clock. Then at 930 have got John ledger he is eighty the Steelers reporter. Four. Hubbell he's not for galleries what my idol when it when he comes back John has been on the program with me before. He's a great guy to you what to get some Steelers inside information for saw have him on at 930 to second hour really dive into this but I'm opposed the question now Emma DV the number to call. Who has more pressure to perform today is that this bills' defense in the snow against Ben Roethlisberger. Knowing what Ben Roethlisberger has done all season on the road or is it Tyrod Taylor and the spills offense are you waiting for that quote unquote game from Tyrod Taylor where you can make. Eight distinguished decision on whether or not he's are starting quarterback moving forward next year or does it not matter over these last for games have you decided. Tyrod Taylor and Rex Ryan's fate this season ordered these last four games really hold water. Over the decision you'll have to make it 30551. Tripoli 552 by deed goes of the numbers. Give me a call they Kyrie here in forgery like this morning and bills game they are listening to the Biggio. He never gives up on a play. Which is a positive and he thinks every play should be a banquet so he's looking for that. Score that big play every time he has the ball in his hands and and that's dangerous and because he's a hard guy to bring down. And he's got an unbelievable receiving corps good running back and he's been playing this good. Game at a high level for a long time so. He's one of the best in the business is going to be a tough test. And he's proven that he's a Super Bowl winner. Bills GM Doug lay there and he's talking about. I don't know some quarterback that plays for the Steelers got a couple of Super Bowls and it's pretty darn good. This expert and he knew that that I figured I'd die I dvd updated UA's. Aren't welcome back to bill's game day Nate here a year in the four Jeremy White dank cave got the updates all morning for you might safari on the board. Hang in with me this morning with few. The listener and you are the most important and I wanna give you numbers to call which is 8030551. Tripoli 522550. You can also tweet at me at Nate Kiri WGR it's an AT. EG. A RY to be GR. And if you got this question I'll be answering them all morning if you have it answer to my dilemma. Which is this morning who has more pressure on them to perform this afternoon it's bills' defense. Against what I think is potentially one of the most talented offenses in football or is it. This bills offense that hasn't quite. Had its coming out party yet this season obviously the running game has been a mainstay all season long that hasn't been the issue in won't. Be the issue it's whether or not Tyrod Taylor can be an effective critic for the year we haven't quite seen. Yet this year let's get a quick weather update for those headed out to the tailgate we have currently. In winter weather advisory that's in effect starting at 1 PM today so right kick off is when the lake effect snow warning is expected to. To begin the National Weather Service in buffalo has a surety winter weather advisory for snow which is in effect from 1 PM this afternoon until 7 AM on Monday that's lake effect snow warning. It is expected you are expected at this point to get three to five inches and visibility at times. Less than a mile so I expect some snow today some bands if they hang out over Orchard Park you can definitely see some significant snowfall. Today its whether mansion and sponsor. It's brought you by core Ruble collision make the right decision insist on Cordoba. Collision in will continue bringing you weather updates all morning. Right here in bills game day but tonight it's cowboys and giants and it's right here. Under Biggio are at 8 PM Sunday Night Football on WGR Sports Radio fight fiftieth brought to buy outlet liquor when it's time to stock up to save every day it outlet liquor and buy armor keep the right people.

So if you haven't had the federal meets WGR game to kick off special you might as well hitch itself up and your tailgate with it this week. It is a solid solid buy sell. I've been talking fancy football morning and I love talk and some fancy football or else wanna hear your thoughts and today's bills. Gonna be Ian Snell. They're facing off against what I think is likely the most talented offense. In football and it makes for an interesting matchup and makes up for interesting story lines all afternoon who has more pressure performance this bills' defense or is it. The Buffalo Bills offense let's head out back to the phones were with got Mike in Toronto he's got a fantasy question Mike your buffalo bulls gained it. That answer question I think there's more pressure on the bills' offense. Although they've been dealing with injuries and haven't had that would have been more than. We'll be older and. They sure will. Well I expected the snowmobile I Abydos sitter on game which. I think almost rebalance the game at a little better than me on the clock down. Well you hope died I mean I think that's what you wanted to see last week is. The bills especially the bills running game works so well. And Rex Ryan boast that after the game need it when they asked him why the bills defense that specifically the run defense got tread and he's at all about their run defense and I was like well racks. He kind of went away from the run because you know you they scored 29 unanswered points but. Yet I agree and I think with ever won a healthy it makes for Anderson storyline if the bills often struggles. Snore no snow I I think that there's pressure on the softens to succeed with all of its parts. Come back and healthy but he got a fancy question we got Mike. I've gone bad DeMarco Murray started and then ask for my running back and blacks are not Q outcry to choose between Carlos Hyde Park early. And Arafat rob Kelly hoping NAND. You can hear your pin is on the out of Garland played and that feeling good apparently very screaming Terri says debt of four additional or buffalo so gaga CJ for door where it. You all aren't used to. I've had seated Fedora what's all season and might use Kennelly. I also have. Geez who lost somebody else oh I've got out Kyle Rudolph as well so the kind of switching those two on and off all season I I feel fine about the various green. In the snow. You got to remember to Ben Roethlisberger spent around the ringer. He's played the snow he knows how to be successful throwing the ball through the snow I think that there's going to be a major major. And I don't know which one it caught a guest. There's there's going to few major game plan around trying to stop Antonio brown and that's gonna open up to people in the passing game one lady and bell who has doesn't need help. In the passing game because he is one of the best running backs out of the backfield and passing in the league. And then it's gonna be leader screams coming up 400 our game last week eleven targets you don't just have eleven targets and then the next week not have nothing. Especially what his potential role beyond its offense in the reds and I think he's now they're red zone target. I feel you should feel fine about gone with the various green on don't like the snow this week at least on you know hampered that decision now. Where you're going to be struck and so you already have your two running nexus for your your flex this year between early Haydn Kelly. I didn't know what sort got DiMarco I was my earnings or need RBQ and lack. Showcase at two what do these three. You know I've been pretty ye. I guess upbeat about how potentially good the Philadelphia defense is however the numbers suggest they are very good especially. In the fantasy realm their numbers have really taken a dip off since early indices are not turning the ball over the way they used to. The problem is Washington doesn't really make a commitment to run the ball regularly and that's what kind of steered me away from rob Kelly. But the problem is is Todd Gurley has been such a disappointment to seasoned. He's really turned into you like. Just that at giant Tennessee disappointment. After being the darling in his first season. In LA and and the problem is I think this afternoon their face saying let's see who they got today they've got. The Atlanta. Falcons in my problem with girly is. Once they get behind and you saw last week against the patriots they just completely shy away from running the ball. They have to because they're down by major course and are gonna be facing what I think is potentially one of the best offenses in football even though they may be without. So new and Julio Jones. I think you go Carlos I think is your is your RB two I think you could feel safe about doing that and not worry about it because. The jets to. Is is that's gonna be it's going to be a stupor bowl. And that one it's gonna be whether or not go with Collie or Gurley who I think both are very dependent on the scoring. Of the game if it's a high scoring game you can bet that neither of those guys are gonna be really impact impact full. On each match up I have to go with rob Kelly over Todd Gurley and and last year you would have probably called me crazy. But tiger he's just been such a disappointment this season that I can't. I can't consciously tell you to go a tiger early because he's been my running back all season long and I can't take about a mile line up I wish I could. I think got to wrap Kelly this week. Pritchard interpreter yet a prop might have a great one and good luck today in your fantasy matchups eagle 30551. Tripoli 522550. John in lack wanna Europe on bills game day John when he got them. Didn't Gloria technically call had a problem I want our region why should gain ever thought it would have to do this if they drafted. You're seeing the match yelling whoa. Yikes. Yeah well might that Warner mediate. A shady guy and ended tutored going to be. Rob calorie able beautiful port PP our route Kelly Chimerine. Or are Guillermo. Well you chemical Shane Vereen yet because they just don't know what kind of capacity he's going to be able to play with coming off that I believe it was a triceps injury either of Arab biceps are maybe it's like a chest injury had that hair and I'm he is back so you're gonna wanna. Kind of follow closely. With what he'll do but I'm just not. Comparable yet. Going with him in and feel uncomfortable doing however it's interesting matchup because. Rob Kelly again as I was talking about. It really dependent on whether or not they're up ordered down in the game because. If it's a close football game they don't run the ball if they're winning in Iraq had. That's where you can kind of look at rob Kelley as being a real kind of menace but. Really since that three touchdown performance he hasn't really done much he's gotten fourteen carries. In each of the last two weeks against I think pretty good defense is but they've been forced to play from behind because of the offense and the other sides of the field this week. I don't think that Philly deep offense puts a lot of fear and a lot of people. I think you go with rob Kelly just because at this point Dion Lewis hasn't shown he is going to be that mainstay in the offense like he was what before he got hurt you don't mean. And headache you're still kind of waiting to see what the number was his role will be how ever. It is important to note moving forward if you are able to win this week Dion Lewis with no gronkowski his roles deathly going to be broadened. It's just about a matter of whether or not feel comfortable enough to play him now and I just don't think I'm there yet. I'm rob Kelly's gonna be your were course he's gonna get. We should get anywhere between fourteen and twenty carries. This week and I think against Philly he should see more and again this is gonna be a red zone guys well so he's got that touch shop potentially not to be too much to the air. Which is obviously we're Dion Lewis gives you that kind of odd that plus but. I think you arrived Kelly just as he's RB one opposed to Dion Lewis. Yet got a deadly anywhere in electric or you'll see there are a lot in the. Oil right. Yes I think I think you're safe going with rob Kelly here you gonna go the safer pick anyone with a boom bust candidate go with Kelly and die and good luck my friend. And it basically I think on those you're gonna beat Albert McCourt who get who can keep going donor. And that my friend is deathly going to be the matchup to watch today they can John appreciate the call and good luck and fancied this week Stephen in ten more year on bills game day welcome Stephen. Stephen Eric. I don't there on do a lot of self good I have to question the you have time I got time. It between operating doctors row prior. I started to Wear out their denied that YouTube quite obviously. Brett do their route lunar printing it out jet off. You know I have I started the season brain cooks he was I think my second or third round pick I was expecting all a lot of good things this year from Fran cook she's been very inconsistent he's gone games. Green has got a target the season. And then on the other side you've got Terrelle Pryor and I think he's one of the feel good stories of the league. A lot of trash talking from the Cincinnati secondary this week on Terrelle Pryor. The giants' secondary last week trash talk prior and he you know six catches 131 yards no touchdowns but nineteen points. In PPR four rants against the giants last week Terrelle Pryor. Now it has really kind of separated himself is the number one receiver in Cleveland. He is a free agent a USA in the offseason I think that makes him the most dangerous over these last four weeks because he's playing for his next contract. What's interesting is now you get you get RG three back in the lineup and I think I don't know whether that. Brings trot prior stock up or down because in the pre season I saw Terrelle Pryor apps are I saw RG three EU's Gary Barney a lot. And that he also has. You know the rookie receiver on the other side. And I think it makes for an interesting question here because does RG three use trump prior the same way the other quarterbacks this season had used prior and that's really as a number one target. This is a guy who's got 3100 yard games and the season he's been close a number of other times in his great red zone target. I think you go prior here. Because he gives you that opportunity to get a hundred yards consistently. He's gonna get to at least five catches I mean the guy's got five catches. And MC 123. More from. He's got five catches in five of the last six weeks I think you feel fine about Terrelle Pryor and what he can give you. He's gonna be a double digit threat where I just think cooks is either going to be 25 points or two. And you wanted to with consistency and fancy gold Terrelle Pryor and and and good luck Tia and. Credit my other question they would be. Quandary is an allergy or. You gotta go Joe Horn and it's all because of the sharply potential. Our. Coach he is now a basement I appreciate it. Hit a 30551. Triple late 552 by fifty my outfitters also blown up with a bunch of been two questions.

I posed the question this morning and who has more pressure to perform is that this bills' offense coming off pork second half performance against the Oakland Raiders last week. Or is it the bills' defense facing one of the most talented. Offenses in the league and now I bring and the AT&T hotline set apart trio Buffalo Bills beat reporter for WGR. Bring them on out of propose the question he sale who do you think has the most pressure to perform today obviously it's any difficult week for quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Just a lot of questions about its future and I'm sure. You know old Mir you have never really been in the situation where people ask us whether or not our employer will be bringing us back for a year for the next year but. That's the position he's in he's a quarterback in the NFL and the pressure is going to mount when your team a 66 in their 500 make him in the playoffs and sixteen spot. This week who's got more pressure sale is the spills defense or is the bills' offense and regular. What a great question of tea I think back to that Oakland game in some nice Monday's jail Everly wanted to please blame somewhere off satire it's on the office walls on the defense and some people would say wise or one gleaming office when it was certainly the defense I say when apple I mean everybody everybody had a hand in that collapse last week the defense certainly. Did not get the stops they needed. The allowed that 29 point Ron and then the offense went three and out and three consecutive I think maybe four consecutive whatever was you know possessions of the it was a one and out and with the interception. Look at today's game. I think the offense has to. The pressure's more Tyrod Taylor in the entire offense you know this is he has been a microscope. Throughout this week as a group I would say more the defense as an individual it's it's Arab more than anybody on the team. I don't know that I don't I don't I don't mean a middle I think that's the weight I would put it because. You know there's there's no pressure LeSean McCoy he he's he's doing his thing. He's rather I think the I think most people expected bill to run the ball well they might not have a hundreds of yards rushing but the Guatemala modest pace at least today they could get to something like that. But that should at least be able to carry their offense they the pressure is certainly on. Tyrod Taylor now that he has Sammy Watkins Robert Woods and mark he's good with all healthy on the field he needs to step up he's plates put points on the board. Through the passing game but given what this defense did last week or didn't do and the way they were chewed up in the second half. And with this quarterback Roethlisberger. And Antonio Brown or white thing pound for pound dollar for dollar it's either hammer Julio Jones as the best wide receiver in this league. Things that he's Dylan there's certainly a lot of pressure on the unit's glossy defensively. Unit wise they have more pressure today but generally anybody. Our labor in a stadium has more pressure individually and Tyrod Taylor. So do you think there is likely to whom. Teams be no better than the bills and Steelers that are really kind of more equipped to win in the type of weather that's going to be. Out Orchard Park today I mean talk about power running games. Two offensive lines that really pave the way for two what I think I mean just top of the line running backs. You'll Shawn McCoy doesn't have the power that Lee be on bell has been I think people bring that element. Of being able to break off that big play and then obviously got Mike you mostly in the number one bill's rush offense in the league. You maybe to you could talk about how I guess disappointing you could look at how Tyrod Taylor season's gone as they think the numbers that he's really been posting week in and week out. Has been the numbers expect them to put up in December when you need your offense to really be running the ball and to be successful. So I guess this week. Is there to better offenses to watch in this type of weather and you know maybe you could talk a little bit more about Tyrod Taylor too as well in what you're gonna expect from him today in this type of weather because we haven't really seen him have to post numbers. And this sort of weather. I would say the bills are probably right now the most. Maybe the most well equipped team for something like this at the because they are the best running to Italy their fear their free clear the best running team by the way that people realize what their numbers are compared to the rest of the league. We all know what the Dallas Cowboys are doing with Asif Ali that profits of Lima think about this. Those are still averaging six yards more per game on the ground and they're averaging point six yards a carry more. In Dallas the second place in that regard that's that's unbelievable number the bills yards per carry. I point yeah war. Nobody in this league is over five notes or four point eight the house scholars are close to that. So I think the bills are very well equipped but obviously got to throw it a little bit of passing of course Pittsburgh is the way they can run the ball the way the band can hang in the pocket. And he can wait for something develop and we all know that I think that you know suits him well and a a weather game like this where he doesn't have to be relied upon to take off and run he can wait for things develop don't deal with it might feel slower because of slick conditions. Or things like that I think Pittsburgh's up there I think Dallas is well equipped but of course that plated domes that we different Tennessee's team that could probably handle. A situation like this given their short passing attack. They have Mary noting only that they're stretched a little bit more but. With what he can do it of course a great running game they have this year as well this is a great game a great matchup for this. Particular reason you talked about our top of that. It's it's even Pittsburgh is used to that weather anyway right telling income from Miami rallied the coming from California. Or even adult you know that's not Detroit or Minnesota they're coming here used to playing this type a whether they're bringing a ton of fans that I've seen Pittsburgh being in this area wash your. All weekend long expert pretty crazy we know that they're gonna be here it's going to be a a really huge game as far as that's concerned as ours Tyrod Taylor is concerned. I'll go back to a set a little while donate you know he does or Sammy aid as that Robert is murky since the first time since week two. They've all been on the field we don't seem it was still dealing with his foot injury and he still is I don't know. Exactly to what level is probably better now that was then. And we know that so last year. All four of them. Meaning the court back in those receivers and even and there are still one tightly tyrants a couple of games. Marquis Scotland on the plate too so I added I know even even considering Simi Tyrod end. Mark and Robert I I don't know how they have a lot of games together so you know this is a game I think where. There's no excuse this year in her the injuries that we talked about a lot this year I understand they haven't had a lot of chemistry to work with and all kind of stuff. Because they haven't had a lot of practice together but and you got a full compliment now Andy you have a fully. Help the offense here today the only person that's not gonna play is Reggie McRae. And the person it's. Possibly after a play Kyle Williams that both offenders so rentals have no excuse on the opposite side as far as injuries or weapons. Big Geary here in Virginia light on bills game days out Apache joins me and the AT&T hotline sale. Talk a little bit about the task this bills' defense is going to have as you mentioned pound for pound. Likely I I think yes just that stepped over Julio Jones just because of the speed the top end speed in his ability. At his size to high point the ball is is one of the best I've seen obviously you know Leo Jones he's going to as targets every week but I think the guy that really. Can beat a three touchdown and and fifteen catch guy. That to me I'm a week to week basis you have to worry about Antonio Brown so what's the task. The Vista bills defensive backfield is gonna have to focus on this week. Talk a little bit about what he brings in how this feels defense can target and try to slow down Antonio Brown this week. Boys everywhere it's asking and it's amazing he really is something special I'm I've gone back and watch some stuff on this week and like to say he does two things are really incredible to me there's lots of guys this league who can run. There's lots of guys asleep when that ball he does that just as good as anybody OK but. What separates him from everybody else in this league I think except like is that Leo Jones is right there. There's guys that can kind of rail O'Dell's agree receive we know that I think it's really is pound for pound bass guy. I think you'll Julio is very close but my point is. What separates it from a lot of those other guys. Is two things number one he runs incredible routes okay he. Majority called and talked about this this week we just heard from a little while ago but. He says you know you'll do a little whip inside and you think he's there and suddenly is boldly goes out popular cuts cuts come back outside. He will run a route where you'd think he's in the one spot and suddenly he's somewhere else and. It's a perfect match for him a bad as it because. Then hangs in there as long as possible to allow his receivers a guy like brown to get to where you need to go in man. I don't care who's covered on that tough task for the best defensive backs in the world for a guy like that. To have to cover and to try and know where he's going to be no he should gassed no you should stop on that note we should continue to give him some room you just don't know if you don't know. Where he's gonna go the other thing that went super impressed with watching some film. It's not just high point eight he catches the ball in traffic all time. I don't understand how he catches the ball when he's double teams in the end zone and two guys are collapsing and sometimes. It just sticks to his body sticks to his and he finds a way. To maneuver his body in his hands to a position where the ball. Just stays with him it doesn't go anywhere else are actually believe some catches IC go back and watch this week don't. How does he do that I don't know it's going to be a big task now if you look at Google site you want some. I guess optimism I'll say this way. They have done a pretty good job. Of stopping the other team's best athletic and especially at wide receiver over the last two years. You go back and look at O'Dell Beckham did virtually nothing that giant scheme against them last year. AJ green a year ago I think he had these occasional wasn't a huge eagle off on them and that of course got hurt this year after Hopkins at at night. Had a head and nice like a nice fourth quarter against the bills last year they when he started throwing. And what rightly be pushed off and get away with it yet and -- that element -- otherwise they shut him down pretty much when he came here last year so. I think the game plan went anytime Rex Ryan is going into a game his game plan is sent essentially. I it's equally which is best weapon they've done a good job that I expect them to try to that he will be doubled today a lot. And I think that's gonna be have to be how you beat the Pittsburgh Steelers today. And then you just have to rely and everybody up front do their job against Libya though you can't double ball you can't see were doubling it to brown it a safety got a boxed. Against Libya value and it kind of pick your poison. But I think 84 is the guy that you pick your poison here. Sale and that it's a good kind of sad way to talk about Stephon Gilmore who this week. Kind of publicly said he'd really like to just shadow Antonio Brown all week now. We know I mean formerly all season in the past two years with Rex Ryan that that is not how Rex Ryan operates he has a right and a left corner. And that's what corner state and although Stephon Gilmore came out and said he wanted to shadow into whenever he also said. And he'll do whatever the coaches ask him to do. Do you expect to see Stephon Gilmore moving around this week or is it status quo sticking with his side of the field and he won't be moving. I don't know. I don't expect him to do I wouldn't be surprised at this point like the defense has been the defense all year so here we are in. Game number thirteen. That's why I would be surprised if they did it because they've they've played the same defense all year and they played good receivers this year and they haven't done that so. I would be surprised especially considering that rod RBs back OK now run Darby was not back. That might be deeper discussion now we could get out there today and the first series you could you step out you'll more maybe moving around but the fact they've not done that all year to twelve games. Tells me they probably won't do it today I wouldn't be shocked although I just don't expect here's the thing. I I don't wanna see and when I say that there are listening right out on our you know it's a bundle more seismic this year OK well we'll look at this there's three reasons why. Kate first reason is he's actually played really well the last streaks exits the body he's actually been a very very good player he's got beat a few times I know that. But everybody does he's played very well last few weeks. The second reason is. OK so you don't cover who's covering them. Rod are being honestly what's the difference the heavy is that kind of a drop off the lead are split this year. Think about it yet witnessed it isn't Gilmore as pours Gilmore has played at times this year he still is probably your best cover corner so I know that would be another reason. A it and the third reason is most important and with his looming contract situation Nate. Okay put up or shut up can you handle Antonio Brown. In the biggest game of the year. If you default on the field if you can't we can start to have a discussion about why you wanna be paid where he wanted to paint it in Europe we get their at least you can now. Start to maybe move a little bit more towards that understand. And he would have a case. If he can't and he gets beat and it's clearly a mismatch. Hey. You want to be paid top five you're clearly not top five you can't do what taught by quarters do which is follow the energy's best receiver and shut out at least that he does today we have a better picture of who he is at the end of the year. I completely agree with that sale set a project here on the AT&T I like to sell on the other side of the ball and it's. For the Pittsburgh Steelers now. Think about it this way and there's been a lot of road and home Ben Roethlisberger tot he just isn't the same at least statistically. The court the same court Becky seed when he's at home at at least at this point of his career and we kind of you talked about a little bit yesterday in sports talk Saturday but I wanted to get your opinion on why you think. That there is such discrepancy at home and on the road. As of late for Ben Roethlisberger it's really kind of vent it two or three year sample size this isn't just going back ten games are going back. One year to this is a pretty nice sample size now that you're seeing his struggles on the road are real it's a real thing can the bills tap into those struggles. In real I mean. So they have been able to turn the ball over not like they did in the beginning of the year when they were really successful against Arizona so. Why is it that Ben Roethlisberger numbers are so low and can the bills take advantage of that this week. Roster last time I'll go on the road Thanksgiving night rice or part eating apples calls fourteen of twenty immediate throw for a lot of yards to twenty over the average was 70% completions to for over eleven yards. Per pass attempt that he scored three touchdowns through the air so. He has had games in even the last time now where he's looked like a regular Ben Roethlisberger home or away but you're right it has been talked about I've talked about a lot of people talked about it. I I did the numbers I can remember I think it's back to back and look the last two years come by excluding net retouched or performance last week. Thirteen touchdowns fourteen interceptions between last year and this year on the road sack and at the that you care right. We can't sustain that you know every week on the road it easier and expect a lot of football games so I think it's obviously been an issue and the funny thing is. It's recognize that it as an issue in Pittsburgh it's even recognize. By him and I think when that starts to happen. While that kind of gets your had a little bit you know I mean if he's saying he's trying to figure out why he's thinking about it to me it's almost like a golfer. And one bowyer who yet when you say there's something going on that you start to think way too much then more more goes wrong because you're trying to fix. Every little thing. But look at problem some of that I'm sure some. Defense that he's facing you know it's tough on the road in this in this league. In win comedy crowd noise affecting what they like to do on offense maybe it's ideally office requires some things where he's accurate communication but it's certainly. It's certainly a factor in some guys they just they get better and it's whether or in their own battering their own hotel there normally and you know teams stayed hotels and on games to. So now on the before the game maybe there's something about that having a certain routine when your home or on the road and once you once you start to. Not lately you're supposed to. It kind of gets a little bit heading Unita. A few performances in a row where you say. I'm past that don't worry about it anymore while lets you know for those fancy let's hope he's not at that point because he did have a great performance the last time I'm trying to look as he watches that time before that. At Cleveland. He was not very good Healy 267. Yards and did not throw a touchdown or interception. And that Baltimore. Do you split 51%. A touchdown and interception ice it at Miami this year. Nineteen of 3489. Aaron that's this isn't that I he has here's his last few road games yard totals Annan. Last week you wanna click here we go. Listen to 21167. To 64189. And it's not that's got that right no not at all. Especially Novak that he had ice exactly exactly and here's is touchdown receptions. One touchdown to TD I'm sorry but one TD two interceptions one and one. Nothing and then three dollars and it's not it's angry at Philadelphia this year they were bad Doleac in Spanish general. He threw for four times it was a terrific seven Arctic that's passed that this is not bad when you look at him especially historically over the course is greater demand to freeze home or way. He was just big bad and that's what he would do sell there's a couple folks on hold now they got a couple questions for you only get you before you leave so we got Mario. Mario's and lines got a question the selling America. Bob good morning for small government and I had like that say that Al listening to that children are a lot was that your officials. Umpire act I see that we away Aaliyah. I look at your arm itself and he said he was having. You know I haven't Arnold's old and they were brought up everything the controversy at quarterback. Why eat each and as EJ Manuel sit behind in mentoring the es name Angel Taylor and I said that's like. The blind leading the mentally challenged I mean it's like you're covered the idol guys I mean it just you're coming and they hadn't. Just where in the bill or pull plug Taylor because they're accurate and at a crossing pattern. They were trying to compare the lights minutes from about Kansas City about upper orbit that Schmidt says I can't play in the last time I saw him in a managed right. You know Louis Louis cardinal John supposed to mentor under these capsules and mariner. The starting quarterback went to the Pro Bowl last year in guys in the league for years that he disposed of while they're in and beat by himself and nobody nobody. Is in front of him. Uttered probably a couple high school team pretty good. OK I mean OK can we I mean let's go I mean for Somali aid the guy it's ultimately challenge people by phone call the first place. And that second while obviously just after a out of it have any interest in taking called or act that way listen here's here's here's the deal Ari. Tyrod Taylor has four games left before they have to make a decision. EJ Manuel has four games left in this bills' career essentially they can bring them back at a really low price exactly get a starting job it's who obviously. I don't think he would wanna do that he. Cargo Jones is a developmental quarterback he's he's the third string he's not active on game days and they're doing the right thing by making it that way and I don't care the caller disagrees Doug Willey saying that they're doing the right thing that's exactly how it should be if you don't like Taylor you don't like EJ Manuel that's why. And you don't sell to another thing went with Carnell Jones is. Obviously what people I think. Wrap their minds around is is one performance and specific in it's it's the one against the colts in the pre season is that what's at all well. He was able to hit guys in stride so let's go with the guy that can hit a guy in stride but what you have to look at. It is is he's been kind of considered a gamer so to speak in that that's what he wasn't college he came in. In just took the league by storm took the NCAA by storm won those games for a house state mavs who won a national championship and then the next year when he was named the starter I think that's where you really have to look back. And get you up the most sample size of him is. He struggled when he was expected to running full playbook offense that about in those three games he came in he wasn't running a third string quarterback. Think about when you're the third recording you're not running. I full playbook of offense you have expected to change plays line of scrimmage unexpected. To be the guy that started the season and I think that's important notice when he was expected to runny full. You know Urban Meyer offense he struggled to be consistent and that's what you have an idea of developmental guy now and you know what. Same ritual about Tyrod Taylor he's probably a great guy to sit behind. He set behind Joseph Flacco he knows exactly what it takes to develop into was starting quarterback in this league so I disagree completely with the caller I think. Sitting behind tyra Taylor's almost the ideal guy you want to be sitting behind because he's. He's not a kind of guy that is going to be you know take it personally that you're trying to take his spot it's the NFL several struck take every once spot. But I think he's the perfect guy. For a cornerback like Carnell Jones to sit behind Tyrod Taylor that's just my personal but it. Of course he's what is. Let's occult caller had no answers obviously resolution is one insult the quarterbacks that was that was the point the call is to sort insult to those quarterbacks that lets the story so that that that's where that went. Yet no solutions obviously card real joke is supposed to simply aren't you supposed to start is that solution that's not the solution a veto it it'd be in like that and a draft. But that's what you get now here's thing. I also have many reservations about Cargill Jones Richard Wesley I don't know we'll ever be a starter and he incredibly raw. He lost his starting job right your Ohio State rightly viewed as set he lost his starting job. But he's also Ben. In NFL system with a medical team her. Whatever months now what eight months here he's gonna be with every year getting an about coaching seeing out of a defense is on a daily basis sometimes you run a bit the scout team. Usually EJ because he's the second string guy. And then they're gonna see what they haven't him. As it on the offseason there will be people get their heads together collectively say. What do we have Ricardo joked that may impact the decision on Tyrod Taylor I don't know. All of that is one big issue that they're gonna have to tackle at the end of the season and the caller did ask one other question that was a legitimate question without insulting although he. Added insult what went they cut the court of tyra like you said that you want to cut the cord. And they can either do it after they are mathematically eliminated. And they can say what we have Ricardo Jones in if they do that. Then your obviously saying we don't believe it Tyrod and then you look at and say it if you say we want to know we have the other guy that you're suggesting we know we don't have what we want in this guy right. The real the real deadline is by march of this coming offseason they have to make decision on that looming contract extension. Lights out thank you for hopping on with me you will be on with Howard for your fancy segment and then we will talk again at halftime. Soleil reported that they want. It's gonna be it's chilly I. I have I have three layers of dark pants on essentially I have. Three or four layers on top again neck warmer when I was silent sales for the high school games on Time Warner and I was like this do this is it was cold out there was no time were it was November of like this do this in December I'll never know. But I guess they want on their body and any teenager where teacher asks what we're so bummed out there but and they excel I appreciate it and got talked you have to. Talk about you there the AT&T hotline to report again OK I want to go back and John ledger that he is going to join me of scout dot com he's he's. Steelers the report there's who's gonna join me next when we come back you're listening to bill's game day right here on the Buffalo Bills and all right welcome back to Buffalo Bills game day in a Kyrie here in 4 Jeremy White this morning bills fans know tailgate is complete without the buffalo chicken. Or hot pepper control from the original control factory that's voted the best new product at the national went fast the original controls. Official finger food of WGR so all morning we've ban talking fantasy we've been talking bills. In Steelers there's been a couple key important question today. At least for the bill side is who is there more pressure on as it this bills' offense who has struggled really especially through the air all season long or is it does bills' defense he's gonna be facing. I think one of the best. Offenses at least tale wise in the league. And and to be honest that I don't know that there's a real solution or an algorithm to stop the type of passing game at the bills are going to be going up against today. And that leads me to John ledger who is now joining me and the AT&T hotline he does Steelers covered for Scott dot com you can follow him on Twitter at ledger. NFL draft so John welcome into the it's a bills game day here and I've got a couple questions to be. Have been kind of talking about this all season and not really sure why keeps getting brought up but we've been talking about Ben Roethlisberger really. From week one this year about the difference we we kind of called to Ben Roethlisberger we have the home Ben Roethlisberger and the way Ben Roethlisberger so. I assume if people on buffalo have been talking about it it's got to be a topic of conversation down in Pittsburgh. At least amongst the media. What is CU I guess the reason that you're seeing such a difference between Ben Roethlisberger playing at home and Ben Roethlisberger playing on the road. We have no idea and it's really bizarre because I mean you'd think that the recruit younger nephew is starting his career a little more finally you know maybe. You know this is just going to be short form that this was never colonel form questions career. Five on the road so I don't know what happened over the last. Basically last year four of them being in and certainly there's some allies factor that'll play in any aspect of the team as well as all the road. Actually the only anyway the opposite of why does have some of their rocket being on the road that let the pressure on him know about the poor lies so. There's other factors for sure mother god need to step up there's even department and you commit themselves to the run. And play a little more production football what they have done. But over the last several weeks. But. You know doesn't really explain. Some of the decisions that you see on the road and then in some of the Arab patent. Some of the jitters would sure just kind of an usual for somebody blatantly evolved and that so I can't help but think it's an aberration and eventually going to write them up on the road. And the pride and it could be today could be some point that even but. The trouble that trouble but he had definitely did you a little bit of worry getting hit. So John mistakenly often decide the ball late yet belly Odyssey missed the first few games of the season with that was suspension. He came back and it usually just seems like he has not missed a beat I mean he leads the league. I think he's second in the league in receptions on the backfield only behind David Johnson who's played a full season so as to be expected bare butt. What does Levy on bell bring to this offense and in you know with out a few key guys. You know there this Steelers. Offense is really based around the Big Three and and I guess right now how you can call Adair is green the big four now with him coming in I think he's been really the target. On that this offense has missed in the middle of the field because he's so big so athletic but what has banned the main I guess. Underlying factor that has made this offense so successful is deeply beyond bell. Yeah I think that the number of answers Pittsburgh in an office scored at or thought elitist and out of the straw that stirs the drink in terms of getting. Everyone involved in and making them very difficult to defend. A lot of versatility of those players you'll see Antonio. Lineup in the slot lineup out by the both sides need a lot of them back ultimate vision. The maker talked about up against die instantly put them. Favorable situations. Two win in favorable situations are on this paper routes and so he's great at working with the personnel with lately on bell there's. Probably no one that often courted probably would like to work where more than. The players' golf later on ballot and you probably be one of the better receivers and well you know payment David Johnson too but they Crosby. Superb receivers president that are. Back you can split out wide to complain in the squad come out of the backfield. There's just always so much that they did a year in the passing game. And they really are that bad you know after put them in the law. You know it ought to do outside corner that you Derrick thought Antonio Brown. Into the locker the kind of you know you could depend on what the nickel but more than likely the start the tobacco emotions out of applauded your match up against some of the linebacker. Birthday being bells is gonna win most does not just so. He did it on they're deeper meaning you know he many running back who got such great figure out and no compete for the ball on the inherent conflict. They'll give you added that freaked out but he patient runner. Is that god can handle huge workload it seems to get stronger as the game went on you know you Harken back. Get that a year earlier this year worries he'll be game with a great effort let dot stretched. Many the last three against the giant good run defense. And they often the blog titled war and down so all those factors are our ball obviously didn't work but there are screened tonight. Didn't go to the beginning of the year were struck in the field in the struggled in the office struggle by the second option and there's only in the crap in Yemen. Now there is going to emerge a little but we'll see if that can be sustained or not they certainly help are you really need other guys step up but. I think you are Rodgers is certainly capable. Books as late little bit more. Good saltwater you were so little log on or Cuba. They often want to be overlooked it really really good the last four weeks. Might not put Pittsburgh in a really good position because break on the ball effectively once again now when that had been kind of an Eric stern. In the middle of the season that it would take a lot of pressure out there and lot of pressure up front on the ground and some of the other plane makers that that you need to step up and blew them running things through golf. Pretty consistently obviously palace star quarterback helped ought to let I think adults probably been the biggest factor for the offense at all so we. John Legend here from scout dot com he handles Steelers coverage for scout. And dot John I before we kind of moved the defensive side of the ball. On you you mentioned any talk a little bit about it lived near a screen here but I guess my question about green is. In and somebody asked me this in regards to his fantasy output now last week over a hundred yards and a touchdown. It is this something that they that you think is potentially sustainable in this offense with. A number of miles to defeat obviously Antonio Brown as you mentioned Glenn and dobbs lady and belt coming out of the backfield in the passing game as well but. Does green really poses a guy that could potentially be a consistent performer in this offense. And it is or is this may be what fantasy owners is gonna be chasing after that hundred yard game for the rest of the season and that's really probably is ceiling. You don't see that on a consistent level may be all season. Yeah I think to he would be a little more up and the number two targets in the other market prior. Are any indication. That seems like they're production kind of goes all over the pledge week to week in. Greens are good player he's been able to stretch the field from the scene. Which has been important for this team because they haven't had that. The average age like eighteen point nine yards a catchers are just. Pretty crazy for a tight end but he's also been very Linear player eyes route through okay. But I don't know that he's going to be Dak I sucked up in traffic. Make atomic into the matches in the game. So I think that they're you lose maybe some value in the red. Maybe some value in the middle of the field where I don't know who's ever been. A super consistent performer at your traditional mindset that anything you view the big point EEB splash. And I could result in a touchdown of the coverage is blowing like it was. Lot to eat and the giants so. There's that kind of high upside would have. Anything to your offense by. I think more than anything you need to admirable and also rounding into it they continue to be successful. On acute pressure off and then if it Antonio Brown not a ball the palladium belt fall. Out of those guys are getting heavy attention from the offense and therefore also from the opposing defense. Then I think that greens stock or kind of drop that Fiat could find yourself on the archer he's that type who play maker. But in addition to the other weapons dealers that he can be effective and not roll just might although not always be. Statistically impressive that some people would like it to be in there could could. Yeah out of course because everybody wants to consistent performer fantasy and as we know if your fantasy owner it's not. It's not you know an easy thing to kind of predict or project but don't far let's go on defensively for Pittsburgh. You know. Likely they'll have their hands full with the rushing attack that's number one in the NFL for the bills this week. Right she easier is is probably the name that I think most bills and will be familiar with on in that front seven he's a great young quick. I kind of do would all linebacker for the Steelers. Jarvis Jones. Another guy that I think at least. I guess I don't wanna say I've been disappointed because they haven't followed super closely but. I think really kind of over the course of his career coming out of Georgia I think there's a lot of expectations for me to be a really good pass rusher in this league. I don't know that those expectations have come to fruition but. I mean to talk about this Steelers defense in how they could it's kind of been up and down battle all season long with the Steelers even have been really good. Are kind of pretty average any last week they played really well. I think against a good passing attack but they don't hit that giants team certainly does have the rushing attack this bills team does. So while what do you expect today from the Steelers defense and how they might try to stop this Dole's office. Well who it is you're gonna give up yards into the Aron he beat yeah not because I thought out there I think it. How but now it's more getting it all play together you know the injuries bank was Goldman can't allow them and a top spot at nickel Willie did that in the back there. They wanted to plant outside yet and let it sit there and he's been in the past. Is it might be catch up with him. You know Sean data and Marty burns to rookie Clint secondary that played better recently so I don't I don't know if they were tested it on the mean coverage but. Yeah oh yeah talk about the seeing it run defense in the middle keys and I was. Well the biggest struggles for the they can stop Iran and if you can't stop the run to your post for that really puts you a tough position because you know you're an active open up here. So they lost the number of games because that is it just couldn't stop the run the ball on the floor and I set the common thought it was that I ever but I think it's proven to be a little bit. But you don't really know go to him like an alien. To play Nicole Brown then giants thirteen to go whatever law at all and you're proud of at all breathe those who wins but. You really need something a measuring a better measure stick her. Time you were earlier that gave whereas Iran defense right now and so. The Bill Brock in getting that have been amazing Russian attack vs dollar that's super diverse scheme and their perch. You're. Very creative play calling have been really really impressive in Finland. I've always done a box slow and so I think it got attacked the Steelers defense a lot. You know the one of the biggest areas of concern is that. And and it worked out of the lineup when he's on injured reserve now underway and you have a situation which a lot harder working doubtful. For today's game in his complaint really really well it would doubt that what can caution yes so. You know dot now you're really reaching for your gaps and you only have one other nose tackle. It is being able callers in the big but he doesn't have to say it ranges are very. So you're on outside doesn't stretch play and and that's cracked office and things like that. And taken advantage of a player like that people more limited and base of linebackers beneficiary huge gain corporate Burke. Get a vehicle out without two of their property Frontline. Are there Carter doesn't play I think that you don't get bigger arc on the ground you have to. You can't let our Taylor yeah yeah yeah Olympic quite happen. Armed camp let him get outside the pocket opportunity will hold the ball you'll ball too long. But because he's such a good athlete he can sometimes make something out of the you have to in the pocket the Steelers were terrible that early in the year goes on much better job there briefly so I think really that's going to be key in the bill are going to be able to run to some degree. He can't lose possessions are often because the builder about the Rutgers terrific in the red zone and they don't turn the ball over as the number one red zone. Offense in the lead of the bill that the coach of the best. Read it would be constantly so that we are really fun matchup today but he got a knack in my possession but often you can't let the patent that speech you think otherwise you're. You're being Gandhi and. John I appreciate you come out with me this morning buddy and given us our her are Steelers updates. As a nominee fans you know if you haven't had an opportunity to let's see distillers this year certainly good team and as certainly gonna be team. That it could potentially be standing in front of the bills. If they are trying to get in this playoff push which. Bill's fans are very familiar with. Being in the hunt. As they are right now so so again to explain for coming out with me and I enjoy the rest your season and I hopefully will level talks in especially once draft time comes will be a will be a tough considered. Doctors think perhaps in an effort he would. No problem John Legend there of scout dot com he's the Steelers. He died there and also there's a lot of draft stuff so as image I'll certainly be having him on with me once we get into draft talk eagle three. 0551 triple 8550 to 550. The numbers to call when we come back we will close things off here on bills game day. Get a quick traffic updates from Alan Harris next right here you're listening to bills game in Lake Erie in four Jeremy White right here on the Buffalo Bills radio network.
