He's not John Murphy show. Peace he's not John Murphy show. I want welcome to the John Murphy show here from one bills drive. Thanks for joining us out about GO here Donald Jones next to me. And John Murphy down in Houston for Super Bowl 51 the festivities roll opera only three days away from the big game on Sunday. 6:30 PM kick off you like the 630 kick obligate it would your prefer it earlier Super Bowl pick Koppel leaders horrible kick off what he liked. All right the you know I think it's. It's about right the game is just really drawn out because of the halftime so so stay in sleet you know and in most people at the wake up the next day I wonder how many people actually call lot of work that Monday. Live I thought about before that maybe we should make some sort of holiday out of my age I mean it basically did the nationality you are right. I actually I was thing about that they one of the topics I want to bring up with the which we needed to is. Asked the fans out there how much there Super Bowl parties or what's the big team has mattered to them over the years of it's changed in buffalo. Was always such an event for four years and be you know that it was a holiday the next day I think but. On the although maybe some people want to get too worked away from the loss. Over the years it's changed it's more than you know to people still kind of do the same thing they've always done personable and that's a topic we can discussed in the throughout the apple number 8030550. 888552. Pipe it doable put that on the table right away we got some other things we'll put that out there anyway which is. As Super Bowl have Super Bowl parties for you changed over the years and how I think people you know they've kids you still go to places it's still a big deal the use it just another today. Did try to keep it low key here is it okay. It's always been a big party we just have to find out different ways at that party in places so give a call for that if you will. On the time change thing and the time for the kick off thing Donald. I agree it's about right because I think about the national championship in college we too late equally 8 o'clock and again I think that's come gotten through this game with loan that was like. It indeed what while 31 o'clock in the morning I think so is it any time. But college game normally is longer than NFL game anyway right so he started eight you're not starts and the until at least 111130. So to me 630 is about right now what time of the Super Bowl usually. Game epic super bug me hand about four hours so out in the just for this yet what is it like I found so I think outside of it as a power itself normally a three hour game maybe a little bit longer because they think it one more break or two more breaks built in the and he goes to about four hours usually I'm OK with that I think 1030 is about OK and the game I get mad that is some of these down. These like World Series and BH and Regis Stanley cups they start these games really late. A wake World Series and as X 815830 don't like losing a generation of baseball back to exactly back in the day like I was that kid and I think there are a lot earlier can stay up and wants. Heavily Watson they must unethical and it became even I mean to watch some of the Super Bowl but he's in bed by 830 writes that he won't even be able to see the entire game I am sure. He might do little leeway for the Super Bowl. You might be 9 o'clock 930 but. Any later than 915930. He's like the devil in the morning as tough as this this stuff to get there and got a bit. The irritate well. He sees tool not take naps X school but does it take naps before during the day at all ever you know now he does he. He straight through and so you know he wakes up he gills of like a morning care and then he. He goes through school and then he has after care as well you know him. He wants to go to after care every single day committee has basketball practice at school you know senator I thought yet so he has a full day and then when he. At the bass a practice he's dead tired you know Lleyton is lowered and everything is already done and after kiss when he gets home from bass or practice is around 7730. Something like that he has a good hour to come home eat dinner. Take a shower and relax watch a little bit at the Veba. You know they think that high school to remember and I schooling euros in the go to play three sports jelly in in an Alice and everyday after school you're doing something. I did I played three sports I was also the musical doesn't ban it these different things right with so I mean I can't be the Alabama drummer. Are your drummer and I am still drummer actually 1000 high school when a pretty big jazz award for playing the drums and I was. I was actually in the musical and I've I've birdie host country so I know. I actually was in the bid for two years. Which and I played trombone. Now it's like humans and I have I remember I was like this is not this is not with them but that's not anger. And I if for me growing up in that inner city of violent it has caused the cool thing I did have been a lesson plan a trombone might Nicosia by. Playwright saxophone or something like that writes I'd just like it was a state with sports and do what I do on on the field and on the court that. Well I think why that would happen to me was because that was involved in all these sports and all these other extracurricular which is awesome and I think that incurred myself. When I became a teacher I I was a teacher for ten years when I was a high school teacher. I never people work I was like the cool teacher you don't line because I said. All these kids are doing so much after school at Clinton there have tons of homework Thomas reports on top of music on top of all these clubs are joining. I'm giving you homework you would do I don't write an article teacher and every event the only Rolex yadier working class. And alas it and yet they should man and a deal with it I get home. If if you didn't finish it had to be finished by the McDade was that. I didn't really want to do that but that he had c'mon take all finished I don't want to do that but I didn't wanna give them an out right he didn't finish it would basically. Satellite view for the day you got to score per day. Do you worked pretty sure that's the corporate that's you know so that's all right it's a schoolteacher and it would definitely and I I think we should Kurt gives it to us. You should kids need to be active rightly I don't like giving a homer bogging it down I want to play sports and wants to be involving clubs right too much pressure to do that stuff that. Mean who worked it does bog you down and and I'd love bird for kids to be able it is the act like nowadays the kids are the video games right you'll see kids outside riding bikes and and doing different things that we did grown up you know you just don't see that anymore just being outside playing hide and seek whatever it is adults and the disease out in the Al playing with the kids and it's amazing all right so. It's like the kids that we talk about an American at the obesity and all their stuff that has a lot to do with the technology and video games in the things it really bog and he skis down and is keeping it keeping them in the house. These kids need to be outside a lot more so they need to be involved in different things where they're not in the house whether it's plant outside whether it's in some type of club something but get out of. We have a poll question for you at John Murphy show on Twitter which is an actually poll question and you know you can kind. Relate this to maybe the MVP but it's really the MVP question we could discuss that separately with the most valuable player will be eaten the question today will be. Is who will the biggest difference maker be inseparable 51. And we have four choices for top Brady. Matt Ryan. Julio Jones or other. And for other obviously any other player but also other could be Bill Belichick we actually debated including bill ballot Jack in the Twitter poll responses separately. We didn't do that we just made at other but already. After 600 votes and only being out on not Twitter for about what a half hour. We have 34%. For Brady 29 for Julio Jones and 25. For Matt Ryan 12% other but again again think outside the box if you think Belichick could be the difference maker or game went for that matter. Other would be the answer here where are you leaning in this early poll here Brady Ryan Lee Jones or someone else. I have to go with. At that go with that banquet right reason that I say dang Quinn's. For me to and he now obviously these guys have only been doing that all year. These guys have played at a very high level the falcons depleted at very high level all year they came out. Two weeks ago now and beat up on the Packers. And now they're playing in the Super Bowl but can he get this team this young team a very young team guys that have never played in this one this stage. Can he get them ready for this game. And then if he gets them ready for the game and things ogle the right way coming out from the start. Can he make the adjustments as we all know that the patriots are gonna make adjustments and in the military says it all the time you know we're gonna come out with a plan. Wind up having to make adjustments throughout the course of the game. Can the other team adjusts. With them you know and so for me the biggest difference maker is Danny Quinn can he make those adjustments and Matt and if you can't you'll see a horrible game out of socket if he can. They knew my eyes that he never got major doesn't even have to be he's going to be positive writes a different mayor could be he's not up to the moment Brett doesn't do I guess do. That was the difference that I got out coached because he did not do. What are you supposed to do we know Belichick's. Right we know about it he's gonna do he's got to do and and we think he's gonna put together a solid game plan and question your saying is can get a quick match that if he can't and you get the falcons are really good chance right. Exactly I mean that's that's the biggest thing for me Dan Quinn. Has been to a point to Super Bowls in the last couple years but it now he's there's ankles right you know it's a big difference leaders ahead coats and as the defense of coordinator so are you ready to make those adjustments are you ready for this game. The colts with Bill Belichick on this states. You know I'm glad you mentioned something about the falcons being young I was thinking about this in the contrast of rosters and sigh and what they make of these two teams it's funny because. The falcons are very young team that had a lot of that they have experience sprinkled it they didn't experience adding that Wright is included in that he's experienced guy right Julio Jones experience. But other guys especially defensively that Beasley that line backing core they're young group they're young right war that have experienced mixed in at some key spots. The patriots exactly the opposite there a veteran core and who have young guys makes him a key spots and I think that's a really interesting dynamic so. To me. The patriots window is only as good as Tom Brady is playing in his only as long as number displaying. I know build out takes a really great coach I understand that. But Tom Brady decided to retire after today they go from media favorites that when this horrible next year to middle of the pack right I mean that's await us through. The falcons are different. Falcons window of opportunities opening. Ali I am I I really believe that the falcons right now are going to be like the Seahawks were a couple years ago and over the Seahawks have been. Bawling you know in the playoffs for the last what 45 years and grow you know so I think the falcons because they're young team. I'd like that you know as long as they can keep the core guys together we all know are free to see you gonna lose guys but if you can keep your core guys. One that team. And you can keep their quarterback there which they will. I think that this team has its case to be good for the next four years five years. Yeah and you look at him when he talked about the falcons the experienced players of the with the key positions you need the quarterback they're number one wide receiver. Even guys like that about it Freeman nominally a few years right I mean that I could certain to see but they're still young he's there at that spot where you can count that either side of the ledger here which really about the defense. Being a little younger and the patriots side. We don't the experiences experiences Brady. The experts guys like Chris Hogan has been asleep now a few years he's been he's bounced around a little Julia Adam and of course experience they're offensive line as varied experience. David injures however as young the other senator he's young guy you look around their roster and look at some of the other young guys have Malcolm Mitchell. He's a rookie in the remains easy young guy obviously I think they have a root out and Malcolm brown who I really like that Texas coming out of the draft couple years ago defensive linemen you know guys like that are sprinkled around their roster. You know whether they they play a lot of don't play a lot I think that's. That's kind of what you look at or Shaq Mason another offensive lineman who's been an outlet you know he's elderly couple years of their learning. What's going on here right now another thing about the patriots. The statements have young guys like Michael Butler as a young corner honestly yes but he's already played on the stage to meeting huge play in the game that. Basically one in the game though even on the other side and load it with Ryan mode and vote yes Logan Ryan is that his name yet. That's right. That loaded Bryant. He's played in the suitable aren't right so they have young guys that have already been there both of these guys have. There's that they're young guys that it'll it'll only 25 easily there's only four years I that they have they already have a Super Bowl and upon a great point. So it's like mandate these guys really are veterans that is they know what they're doing. One the defense of and offered the southern boy and we know about the specialties with Slater and him and. Later in the X-Men obviously isn't league nine years in rams look at the rock yet he's been pretty amazing while I mean he really took off what he's doing just a few years ago. But he's always been a good specialties where now are taking notice. They understand look at that guy like Dion Lewis who came back from an awful injury but you know Dion Lewis. You know he's kind of rate that spot 26 just giving just about as prime of his career his age that his position he's playing with and yet the experience to Chris Long. He goes from playing Ramsey comes over egos in our ninth year in the league playing defensive and so I think they've really get mixed there but again. It's interesting that it comes down to to me the core group of this patriots team has experience with some use sprinkled in. The core group of Atlanta AG along with some experience sprinkled in and the spring experience is really at the main spots that's where you want it. Although we have seen lately Donald. You can get to this horrible young quarterbacks we've seen that when a guy like Russell Wilson had we go back to breed your Roethlisberger their first couple years Italy when it actually did go to suitable and do that is a rhyme or reason why you have to have a certain quarterback. That's been asleep with certain amount of experience I just think if you have the right chemistry of your team. That's what matters Ortiz you kind of have their own blueprint. But they're both here for reasons. Right I mean you look at Tom Brady. Once Tom Brady is the honest to say Timmy grapple with stupid I mean we all know the talks are that. They might treat them Cleveland like that right but if he's still there we've seen him run that system. And he can run the system well but it's is it the same. When that team gets down and fourth quarter when in the fourth quarter right now you know Tom Brady has the ball. That is a good Tennessee he's gonna drop their team down through this war would Timmy to rappel you'll know that he still is still the same system. But you don't know that he's gonna be able to make those key throws that Tom Brady used we will make you know and and so that's the biggest difference when you lose that quarterback you know that's why we talk about. When he's not there then removed from every year being a contender to now move into the middle of the pack. And I do think there's something to the fact of a certain kind of receiver the patriots like guys who are trustworthy they're not these high end guys OK we had a rainy monster again. Throughout his career has had those kind of guys he's had the Wes Welker is that Julia cattlemen's Chris Hogan's guys like that. He's had guys that. I'm on the village trustee you're gonna be on the run that route know where you're supposed to be. I get a great exit of a guy who didn't work out Chad Johnson now Chad Johnson was not good in New England part of the reason was from what. Was being said. He did not grasp the playbook and he didn't grassland and he didn't grasp what. Tom Brady wanted him to do and where he needed to be I think that matters here. Relating your drop off back to you go to Cleveland you have those type of guys jealousy Seitz rubbed prior back Isley is a fantastic talent right. But as to wrap Josh Gordon's start playing again. Are those kind of guys. That you're going to be able to rely on a weekly basis to trust to be where you're supposed to be like you couldn't wait to be steps in for Tom Brady with those guys. I mean. I don't think so. I don't think so you can't even trust Gordon stay on the field that's right he came to trust in the be on the team you know looks as though you he'll he'll be dealt with that. And go to Cleveland in essence that it kills careers it Noah I just. I would hate for it to see him go to Cleveland because it really hurt his career and I do think that Jimmy to rappel to the quarterback I think he had the chance that he would be court. Wouldn't he wants speed from former players the import your wouldn't he want to. At least go some where he's gonna play he's gonna star is any chance he'll be a contract you're next you're too by the way at least fourth year in the league. If he if he calls out he gets big money but dealing waking ball out is a beast arts. The rank and I think he would also look at it from a standpoint of Tom is going to be here for what. The next three years we don't know I mean you don't know it but yet you. I mean you can't go anymore than I think he's going to be there another 34 years so three to four yeah wait that long ago that either he's gonna be in its ninth year. 78 or whatever it is but that's a long time a way that is news is that I I think it's it's it's. It's tough you know because. This site to a wanna leave here and go to Cleveland where they really have nothing right you know and be apart of building a full franchise and that's all that and then the but. I mean they've been trying to build a princess forever or don't wanna stay here sit behind his guy no I'm gonna win every year and then at some point I'll be the starter and I can continue his legacy I mean that's that's I don't know that it's. You know it's going to be interesting no doubt about it pay phone lines open 803055888550. To 550 Dow Jones here south of pot yo. In firmer he is down it's admirable that he won we're gonna hear from him in just a little while. He's to have Andre reed with him today he's also gonna have so several other guests come your way scheduled have Willie Cologne steep allows a low. Palace solo excuse me the pro am I doing in of which of that name per limited minds to pot she. Hobbled it with him as well. We'll hear from mom we'll hear from Roger Goodell later in the program as well he said some very interesting things yesterday x.s state of the league. Address. I didn't catch what producers to mean here we are ready to go to Merv there to there. Jim Kelly and maybe Wade Phillips that is cede power technology that tone here Jim Kelly immediately Phillips later I'll. We don't Wade Phillips. Still to this day to me. One of the bigger mistakes this organization ever made was Byron I think Wade Phillips. Would have had this team double the drop wouldn't be seventeen years of weed those here and I get why understand the situation happened in. After a homer on throwback yet to somebody and actually wanna about the people in in you know Ralph wanted a player coach I understand all that. And sometimes you know those things happen in business. Week old I've talked plenty of players who played in late ninety's for Wade Phillips. Who said one of the best coaches ever played for. From top to bottom you know he would definitely be guided. They think he could take this team to you know the next level so it's going to be interesting but he's building is the only two of the last. Murphy standing by let's go down to right now he is that Super Bowl 51. Any standing by in Houston right now I'm Murphy don't you remember covering the bills during those Wade Phillips years he is still like I think it's very revered in buffalo around the league of course but. I think like I said O'Donnell may be one of the things that you can go back over the last seventeen to twenty years maybe one of the things you take back is not getting rid of Wade Phillips because he was a pretty special coaching maybe would have taken this team to a different level. I agree I think it was a mistake and such a great guy that we talk with a earlier Lebanon to be with him coming up a little bit. Later on the show it's got a book out Wade's got a book coming out in the spring. Co written with their Buddy Baker to the book is son a bomb lessens my dad taught me about football all the life and he told us there are significant. Storage in there but his tender in buffalo bolts the defense of coordinator. And as a head coach of the bills so we're in and look forward here in about that in which book and from him. Little bit later on in the show we are radio row again on Friday about know that it's Thursday Super Bowl week John Murphy here we're here until 3 o'clock today and joining us. Current radio row the pro football hall of Famer and great Buffalo Bills all time wide receiver. Andre reed if there ever hear about how you don't see him and get elected Texas Governor Patrick and we don't wanna wardrobe melt after. They you're here obviously making the rounds and I've noticed and there's Hines Ward is here you know that there all of your. All of really your contemporaries don't make the rounds here in this room it's pretty special entered CDs that. He had that in and all these gold jacket guys around here just walking around its you know radio row is is hasn't changed over the years I think. You know 2.5 years ago when your first are super super bull. You know media has become even bigger and point five years in north you know back then and so is still same thing to a certain point reduced to just more of. Yep that you have not played in the Super Bowl since 1994. And your record. Of most receptions and mr. approval stands at seven it's 22 super both Syria and had a few pretty special. Really special and I think you know the waiting game is now you guys are catching them balls every season you figure in the Super Bowl is just reported tolerant place. And every you know not but that was Hillary broke just this period coaching that you get admit that's a good I do. Quite. You know this game is it's not like not like northern and you know. And you know they're asking me on the radio stations you'll look what is the biggest thing that that the falcons and and creatures are thinking about all this week besides the media analyst. As well distractions and that's true distract the really important and for young team. That hasn't been here before. It's a little different than a team that has been here before. Eight but ten years ago arms of Super Bowl and San Diego key Shawn Johnson was with the Tampa Bay Bucs. And he sets up about you did stuck with me that week in and a half years later he's is in the in this in the pregame media stuff he said. I wanna win cerebral I don't wanna be Andre reed and what what do you mean by that exit I don't wanna be a great. All time receiver who never had Super Bowl ring the Bucs did win that year but what do you think when you hear that I mean guys what do you know what you did know you have the record among the exceptions. And yet. Without the Super Bowl I. I I think you know piece I'd I'd just talky show a little while actors though. You know by Saddam came and I heard you say that about me not living an educator now he I think he was he said in a manner where. He played his game solo on so long and Lotta years to please game. And you have a chance when you wanna Wear one yeah I mean and uses I don't wanna be like Mike Meehan saying well you know maybe you want to be like me whatever black. I think you were saying their own terms. Oh he definitely would yeah that followed up your concentration he was saint. Essentially be ashamed to get all those records have all their production enough and now when he warned gambling and it's awful I mean. A after all these years now these guys are more are you more and you know that you've heard it for years and years and years. All those players all the hall of famers all those players they are mark you for what you did and how you do it than being there. And Audrey rejoins us the bills all time receive the pro football game and you are here helping out with the gridiron greats yes it's program in conjunction with the southern Reppas recipe. Yeah right yes yes other. The BI I've become odors from their spokesman this year to proceed the other because we can sports and in the Super Bowl. And there's a a contests that go to pork rinds they dot com actually Portland appreciation day Sunday. Are they going pork rinds they dot com southern recipes dot com. Rudolph foods doc dot com and and play contest. Where they can win money. And every time they make a right answer. Other recipes pork rinds. As a donation that grew angry system when Macvicar. And Ron Jaworski what about that group agree with what they David existence for a while I mean any any give assistance to the players are really are neat you know financially physically. We know this game really you know there's a lot of that number and now these are guys that are in dire need of and they do a great job of tonight's cigar party and who's going to be you know. Couple thousand people this party in. They do a great job of just raising awareness for guys that need. And Nolan Sunday is great appreciation day enters the contest yep implant online yeah Augusta great and again for every answer that they get right so the recipe makes the donation to an agreement it's a surprise this game on Sunday Henri to pretty high eight. Profile pretty idea powered casting office yet dislike us bad yeah like and things like Belichick always fun to wage as a fun way to. To stop you know jargon that they would Alanna Anthony scored the most points that your rate and only offense via. Again it's going to be you know this game always comes down to it. The turnovers and making right decisions at the right time because it is and it's a different game one mistake can cost you big game. Especially with two great teams are point. Your former teammate James Lofton another hall of famers here yesterday he talked about how. He wondered if Belichick might take a page out of the suitable point five playbook probably occurred and download the game down limit the Atlanta possessions what do you think. I think that's. That's probably in his playbook Debian book inordinate. You're try to try to limit the big plays were Julio and and try to let them make them run the ball more. As well we know it running the ball's gonna open up the passing game. I think that's really important for Landon on Sundays to run the ball and kind of soften that defense of a little bit and no they got to tackle on defense I mean seems like the creatures they're the they got these guys that you know and Romania Chris Hope Chris Hope I mean these. Really F I know an announcer buffalo fans alike column it got really. He's playing in the Super Bowl I mean you know per slogans of all hard worker dead end and a guy that you would never think that had. You know had a success with them when you're in a Belichick. Let teams. Julio Jones of the falcons kind of may be the top of it kind of a new breed of receiver and I think maybe Calvin Johnson started it but. Know you were there obviously you were over the middle guy with pretty good size but this is a whole new level bigger guys. Tremendous leaping ability I'm talking about Julio Jones AJ green and maybe if he can stay healthy Buffalo's Sammy watched. Yes and that's that's you want that big 215220. Pound got a can run through tackles. Again you don't he doesn't cool across middles much they used to write. You know these guys they break tackles and a single 67 yards like it's nothing. Antonio Brown isn't that kind of receiver but probably the best route runner running game and just knows where is that knows how to find open spots. It would be heresy of Malcolm Butler can follow here is gonna follow them all around the game are they gonna just you know bracket him more whatever they're gonna do. But that's when you know conflicts and knew him Robinson knows when he's Taylor Gabriel you know alligator broke comes into play so we'll say we. What nominate the guy would actually want to talk with the way why have the bills yes bills and patriots thing that's the only reason yeah yeah talk about it unfortunately today. Some fans remember when you guys actually own the patriots own a beach by owned a mayor come with a box of girl and we owned and hated and know for every team every every person that doesn't want to preachers to win there's a lot of people don't want them to land and you gotta admit there. Mourned greatest teams ever you can't you can't take that away from. All right so Sunday is support great appreciation day with the proceeds benefit and I agree to get get what's the website you go to a pork rinds they dot com or southern rhetoric recipes dot com Rudolph foods dot com. And you'll check out that they the contest and maybe once the money with surprises that don't concede that an entity under Gary bills all time receiver Andre reed pro football hall of Famer. Join us here at Super Bowl in Atlanta currently and it's doable in Houston the Fed it back Q those guys them with a defective salad Donald in the studio and Orchard Park felt. I thank you very much Merv great to see Andre. You know he he coached here as part of a program to the I think fellowship coach from the lost a couple of years ago. When he was out there he looked like player and an offense so that's it it's great president I mean it does look great when yet there in and you watch him. And often agree yesterday yes and we are looking Italian wide receivers and yes status that you gambles that shape if you're wide receiver and then all of a sudden you're just fat like that it's not a good look ten years from that you plan that is not a I was general. Only found Donald as we go to break I've generally found. When NFL players retire the big big guys the linemen and you lose a lot of weight and the guys with the skill positions they gave it all gut baseball gods they can do that. I don't know doesn't look like he's like receivers he's helping guys loft and read they look really good thanks a lot dumber for that excellent Audrey Reid will take time out will come back. And when we come back to touchdowns and things Roger Goodell said yesterday at his state of the league press conference. And ask you what you think. About some changes in the league is what you'd like to see happen with the lead. Down the road at some of these areas now joke with me sell my geo coming up next on the job or be show. So I have to tell everybody some music people a little while ago but the bills they have hired five. You coaches and their coaching staff. We'll go through them real worry here. Bill. I want to say this right negate yet they'll negate and joins the staff as the new wide receivers coach after a couple of seasons at east Carolina. John. And why they get used to the Igor grew Johnny Gordon as the new defensive quality control coach goes for the ravens mark Levitt the opposite quality control coach comes for the Broncos. Met smiley is going to be an assistant special teams coach he comes or from Jacksonville Jaguars. And bill your link is an assistant. From Nevada now I have seen. Some people say that other bills of rounded out our filled up the coach except I don't think that's the case because. To my knowledge I've looked into actually hired electors I'm sorry do you coach yet there's no secondary coach officially. On the team so I don't think the firings are done yet. No less John McDermott suddenly says he's doing it you never know I mean it could happen but I don't. Nothing for the teams as this is the end of the hiring we just have five to announce that. But even that man. I think. You know when you look at his defense and it traditionally. They've it's a 43 a lot more zone involved right right and we know. That. When they had Josh Norman had a very good defense. And then when they let him walk out the door you know they were run in his own and we say that the bees are corners are not the premium and that style of defense right when they let him leave that because his wasn't the same and they went with some young guys who did rookies you know when those guys couldn't stop any. And that WGC what's happened to step on Gilmore as we had a free agency as well because of course he is. He is going to be. A free agent so John Murphy is back down in Houston for Super Bowl. 51 and I think we're going to throw it down to him right now he's going to be standing by. Now gateway it will well we'll do that just medicine he's loaded up another gas force but you're right about that that's going to be what's going to be interesting about Stephon Gilmore free agency while we wait for her for what's ahead out of phone lines now because we have a I don't know who's this I have on my screen wanna talk about the bill's direction of free agency battle with a says what's your name. This is Robert. Robert. I got a couple questions where I would get free agency and I've been built scampered twenty years and you know art art Burton. A period there are also all Eagles and elegant and so Herbert leg injury to a company that built that line now. I think the built on very solid one thing on each and currently sit out yet Britain chaired the rosters. They add a talented safety Brian. You look at the belt hear a lot of talk about what Gil Morgan at this at the dark terror part question at what pursuing say like here there. Going to be a free agent this. Also. Been subject a little bit you need some comments about Rex Ryan the lack of ability show that article. And there's also been a lot of talk about our quarterback. Tee shot a lot of accountability and acting bear lakes that leadership bunker I. But what about how long that will take to change the culture did this really taking ability should. While it's a good question thank you very much if all we can have someone hang up from him and I'll I'll move on here because I lost about my screen the ability to do that Donald. Let's touch touch on the first one with the error area in the secondary without B hard I can imagine. Kansas City that can imagine him and intensity. And you know I don't want to bring as well that's that's I mean you talk about a blockbuster deal and I safety you know and and in. In the scheme that they're gonna play here. Do they wanna pay him that type of money do they even had the money to pay him. What he's gonna demand out there if he doesn't go bad it is idiom to only use because somebody is offering him. Up boat load of money and talk about one of the highest paid CDs. In the history of the game that's how they view aired Perry right now he is that type of player you know so it it would take a lot for him that for him to come here I think. At CPA you can you can go out in free agency did somebody but did not gonna spend that type of money and god I really like to see them draft. I agree I think you're number ten as a spot they could draft one maybe Adams from LSU minimally cooker from Ohio State there are some good safeties in the strapped to the high end part of the draft. He have to remember there's still a decision airwaves estimate that's gonna have a big but it did impact. I want this team does bull from his standpoint personnel wise and from a salary cap standpoint I mean how how much lauded as Corey Graham have. One year in his contract. He has talked about. What he wants to do next year at this point I can't see him walking away he's not overly old have to think about we notes at tech disease early thirty's but you know. He's actively forever obviously. You know and he's playing in his hometown I would think it maybe he'd wanna finish out here and play one more year but who knows what. What happens with him but there to spot now I don't I don't think look Corey had a struggles at times and sometimes I think he can be a favorite guy for paean to get on them are things that happen. I think Corey Graham as a guy you need as a as as a guy back there who is a veteran leader who understands defense is in different schemes who can help out with the young guys. It the YouTube we always talk about it you need a veteran and every night. And in that seat the all you left off the bat right there you need to bring one in Airways you don't even know if you know what he's doing if he's gonna play this year or not. So that right there means you're gonna need to seek and so for me you need to bring in our draft this seek the hi mr. you know you need a good safety is strong guy a Smart guy too he needs Smart safeties and and that's that's the role that Corey plays he knows that veteran that's marked out to really tell everybody else what they're doing. I'm Aaron is more of that down in the box I've got to you know they can cover the tight ends he can also he will come down and help out run game beauty both of those and so it's gonna be interesting to to see what they do especially earlier in the draft that seat the and at DB position bottom at the corner position. But man we need since they. You know and Korea also has horrible experience has a ring and I think that that's important sturdy two in July so you know one year left this deal. The B 32. I don't know how much longer he has in his career army navy is outstanding year he can continue to play he wants but. I know he made some comments at the end of the year last year about re you'll evaluate things where he's in his career and if he wants to continue playing but I don't think at this point he's a guy you think it's not going to be here next year I think he'll. The craziest thing Cory. We talked Rubin. Rubin always talks about when he was a Chicago court was bit. Korea came practice has been I guess it's just been he. Drafted or it is came on to the team I'm in Chicago win Reuben was still there and now there's been a tire around now and this is around the same time Devin Hester. Was just coming into Chicago as well. There in 2007. He was with the bears Corey Graham who's and that's rate when the went to that Super Bowl that year I think right an honest minute long two. And into the Indianapolis absolutely. I when a touch on the the other question I promise it'll forget Steve the question about culture column that takes accountability will touch and that we got to go back down to Houston right now because. John Murphy is standing by right now with a special guests as well we'll go down Houston right now to talk. With the army and mark what's when somebody. HL I don't yet radio row and people a final answer we talked with a Andre a moment ago a lot of good guys who have paid in previous bubbles. Making their way around the room here today including our next guest equated mr. Paul and what is possible with the Pittsburgh Steelers when they beat Arizona. At Tampa happy to have former. Steelers and jets upwards of eleven Lilly along with a well I don't like it did do it you make it around here in radio more government and again it may do media row suffer myself around target into. The Brooke has been just the self argue officially out because I don't know if there was ever an official did an official we're gonna do it. I haven't done yet been found it is occupied a fuel so. Paula at all is will be an official state men rap about what rush right what's the rush the no rush automated that we should done you're done so it's ozone better would the world knows it so yet. It what was that like for you and how hard was it coming out of Hofstra. To get to the NFL the via a cryptic by the Pittsburgh is not tell the story a lot I've never heard it first ball. My senior I was just happy to play for half true yet of its class. I was more folds of emirates more word about you know how does that make money so how do a lot of bouncing gates. It would it's in my office of blog posts by it was a maybe answer shot at the league. He needs some star partners are really wrap your head around this it was sort talking to scouts and stuff but my thing was I had guys who. I have play would play with a option Lou what's training camps it is come home early so I'd I'd never want to make get myself worked up if you'll. So a different balls or relentless and we what's your seniors. Yeah funny job then. Tigris my jobs are about to be. Professional football player was somewhat with the Steelers coach and a whole line coach treatment. A teammate sort of brought you along and I took only agreed Alan Faneca. You know what I what I got drafted to see the Steelers. Russ Grimm was my head coach. Officer luckily rather. They hedges beat Seattle beach were fixable so by the time I got draft that you thought I was suitable how rural and everybody is everything and now. But it was the example of heaven. With great professionally Alan Faneca Margot Smith Jeff Carter these guys who have been noted that at prepared. And also the level taught me how to prepare and kind of get myself ready for Sunday. And just the nature of the culture of that lock enemies to play which were Apollo Malone are as lord it is the list goes on of on the degree government lock. So I was birth two like royalty if you you were part of the office of light to protected Bindra the drivers. It really watched him develop his when they went miserable he did throw the ball much by the time your tenure in Pittsburgh ended it was light it up in the air what well. That would benders. I think it was just transition. Off as coordinated you know Bruce error as my OC for the portion of it and he believed in our run game. Notes toward the back marker we had Todd Haley and I think it became an issue where they. We had too many pieces of outside that you that you couldn't nor sought that we came aboard air and I think it was old British Open office himself accounting. You know bring himself among the least likely brewer Tom Green. So I think it was it was a lot of things that I should do today you get to the soup remotely go to camp in years and a heck of a game with the Arizona part until right before halftime. He hit yeah I mean. When I looked back at that game. Everybody tries to talk about white male what was your emotions on the last drive what happened was there we won't forgive the speech was not a day you know at times today you know coaches a team. You're so locked in. We had been in that position some times a year for us it was just a matter of us why aren't we bid him let's get. And we Rivet on executed bringing home is a teller but we started problem penalty in a holding call. So it was bad old uncle was a new nose because of products that are okay but it was a it was a bad call but we had a bounce back from that we literally wit 99 yards a game to win that game for the suitable. It's it's audio bit they were just locked in. They brought it home for us. Well the Cologne is what it's for another minute Q you did finish up with the jets and Rex Ryan's jets we just him wrecked for a couple years or. What was that like played for him what did you think of that atmosphere compared to which in Pittsburgh where those guys. It was a culture shock for me from the stamp where a team from such a beautiful loaded family of army. Rex when it and that's why he brought it to death and he'd be in New York as well. But I think Rex was the type of guy he was. He could be they have raping each stroke will be in the dale like you know coming down guys bush. You talk about a guy who actually he would use all I mean we. We started Gina Smith we worked it CDs that have the firepower story rookie cornerback but he carried a team emotionally. And we believed that made you know we just used it work right in the became toxic between him and is it in but I have the utmost respect for rest. I mean he he was everything at the podium he had more come a beautiful still it'd be at a rate in. I have a lot of respect for. You know. Now he's going to be doing over trotted his rights have been pretty do damn good at W did you I don't you battled injuries that last year we you in the line up at that final game at Buffalo Bills like the jets I know I was that we would be so. It would read all got to go we as an agreement if it you know without. So that was supposed to live for us. And you yes suitably give us what it about him. The deaths were Rex you know he he finally. That last round he can Muster up some for the steam in. But the ball flow is the good team there's always been a strong team and Avaya solid wrestling he would it hopefully. The list goes it's about respect for both Booth what Davis gained from the Sunday mile wolf the file is they've quit recruited me to hoster. And right it forces of you know former option at Mitchell as well but. Always thought they did you have too many weapons that the doing pages views haven't dealt with this year native played sub offices and Thomas Tom and an office played at a high level. But I think it's going to be a shock for this doing the defense and not the problem is hopeful way. Well it's nice to meet you think about it that revenue to alone make it. Around here radio row will be back with more a little bit as we continue on from. The Super Bowl in Houston we'll send it back to the studio Salem now I thank you very much Merck thinks and good to see Willie up there as well he's looking really good as well he's done a really nice job in his career post you know do some media work as bluntly let's do the bouncer. He integrated. Anything right now things and I think time out we can back. Later that question we had a little while ago how long it's gonna take to. Restore that culture of accountability of the bills' locker and it seemed like maybe there was a sense of not having committed at this hour from the top we'll talk about that. Let's have a fun question for you we come back because Lady Gaga talking at the media today I want us you. What you would ask her. That John Murphy she'll. We had a caller a little while ago Donald asked about how long it would take to change around the culture. The accountability that it seems was lacking. At times those lockers several players mention it at the end of the year. And Rex Ryan I think did not have good. We accountability in his own article. That he was interviewed in the New York Daily News just yesterday we went over that. Sharma dirt comes in he has a completely new staff other than a few he retained any cross men and may be one or two I think some of the straight condition except a still round but pretty much an entirely new staff how long does that take to have something like that happen. You know I think when you. When you look at the culture and how was and you hear different things about guys being late to meetings. Guys missing meetings. You hear certain players obviously you have the suspensions and things like that early in the season. I think the biggest thing is you are Willie Colon talk about. Rex Ryan was the nobody was at the hammer in other way around he said oh you'll hear of an up and LA yet so he he. But he was late and he says he said he had a problem really getting on guys who exactly and I I leave that to be absolutely true from things that. Infamy is not even a point of of like getting on guys yelling at guys because guys don't react to that these guys are grown man. For me is the point of guys just having the fear. That if you do something wrong I will cut you. And that's the biggest thing in New England Bill Belichick will yell at you but at in the day. He will cut you. If he feels like you're not up departed you're not doing what you need to do if you start to come late to meetings forget the fines because these guys and make him millions of dollars that's not really. They're not thinking that that's hurting their pockets. Just let him go you know and that's what will really change the mentality of the players is cool. Fitness coach my let me go fight do this actually makes our men meetings on time and it makes I don't miss anything and it makes trying to make week. Things like that then I'm supposed to be doing the right way and that will change the entire coast it's a combination of and it's the entire ordeal as a. And for all that it can happen in six months. I'd with a new coach body that will it as long as he has. The freedom to say so right to let a guy go yeah happy to turn happen OK so you can get to that point where guys can really start I understand. You know that that is the case and look I wanna say this because and you could tell if I'm wrong and I don't think I am knowing things you've said in the way guys are. People can say right now oh well I would do what I do I'm supposed to because I wanna get released by about known on. But we want to me about it nobody wants to be out there that looks bad on your own resume aid and be like it's embarrassing it's neat job. Needed to out. So I mean nobody wants to be released just don't wanna go home it's in the house or Cleveland we are running you don't wanna go home it's on a couch and watch everybody else play because I don't that's like that feeling of uncertainty. It's not a good thing for plays you know into sitting at home like I don't know surmise gonna call me or not but don't want that so you're always if you start to strike that fear in the team played as a follow suit and they will follow the rules and they'll do what they're supposed to do. We'll see what John McDermott has the story trying to change all that with the bills next season all right where it's at a time out Lady Gaga is gonna see speak to the media at 1 o'clock because she's performing at halftime. We're not gonna go to the Lady Gaga press conference I promise you we'll have some public that when we come back here I'm John Murphy she'll also go to Merv. Who is that he is that I don't think he's talked with Lady Gaga but he probably has another guest as well.
