They have their big day the other day down at 716 in the crown to buffalo champion is a the gamers by the national champion permit but the real games on in the NFL right now down with money. I around all over the National Football League we want our review by the way you can join us if you like. Talk about that Sean McDermott the bills that coach who will meet with the media tomorrow. Via on our show tomorrow at twelve noon like from Indianapolis and a quarter pole when he wanted to talk about right now with almost three out we'd never 3000 votes. And general have. We read to you want to can remembers that the something we put out there and now we have 1900. Votes in right now it is subtraction what do you want your coach McDermott. Talk about the common what are you looking for clarity. 58% say quarterbacks what's the plant. 23% say what the plant for free agency 14% say what's the a place for defense when you look like and defense 5% say something else. It was a call 8030550. Tool free 1888550. To 550 to. Amplify what you like eager coach McDermott talked about at the come by and I've said. I don't know if he we've I don't the bills are prepared to spill the beans on what their quarterback play in his Donald for. Mostly because they don't have to until March 11 while we. Ticker right I mean man they have no reason. To Tipton and now they don't have to so I don't expect I don't expect him say anything about it or any of the rest of these guys and free agencies you know the fact that matters. We know how these these these negotiations. Or these talks. Start or they continue at the Tom line and so I just don't expect the missing anything about it. Tomorrow. Or at all throughout the course become mine we note of where I was not speak and so don't expect to hear anything. But we have money there are and could definitely have on there but I got them about you know what it does inevitably be back it years signing guys to an extension or something like that announcement that. They're just not gonna be out front with a they have a lot of work to do though don't let that don't be confused and think the bills are busy to come by. Agents there in the entire NFL is there we've talked about it on the show they have an opportunity to talk with the agents for other quarterbacks if they're interested in. Who knows where that conversation Mike oh they have an opportunity at the combined to entertained. Suggestions offers for. You know quarterbacks having army in the market to trade Tyrod Taylor. That seem likely but maybe they would be with the right offer. They have an opportunity to talk with Taylor's agent at the time my and you would anticipate that that discussion will take place. And they have an opportunity to look at the quarterbacks in this class. You know that's it's a long list in there you know some of them are ranked pretty well. But do they have an opportunity to get their hands on them to get the clock on him to sit down to them in meetings and figure out what they wanna do that's that's a big part of what's going on and all of it. Please in the buffaloes quarterback decision. I'm in upping it all starts with Buffalo's quarterback decision you know think that those conversations are probably. It's all gonna happen to own but at the same time. Those are probably right the most important because it's all like a trickle down effect from what's going on with the quarterback situation you know so. I think. You know I'm actually saw tyra. Earlier today in here working out in McClatchy news. He was focused and probably anxious to hear what's gonna happen over the next week and then over the next week and you know so I'm comets it is like everybody else here with some west and your. There are quarterbacks to look at though not all of them just the first routers and NFL draft analyst Mike may act of the NFL network. Had a long conference call yesterday with the media at one point he talked about some of the quarterbacks available in the middle rounds people who might be attracted to the Buffalo Bills is they. Look to replenish their roster at quarterback spot is we set. Really the only starters in the Liddy. In the last ten years of work food round picks. Were either second third. Or 14 rounder in cup. But I figured I ought. A drop below. Goal in the second round brought Wilson in third and content in the fort over the last year so basically that looked at Elgin. News I do believe he takes shots which pretty much probably take him in the second third or personal. And we're that. Councilman as far as this particular trip any of those top poor guy that I can talk about all day. Could you hurt you sent out a top ten great media card to walk into that he's not home any of them could slide into the second round. IR block that out although he's in the sec I'll take my time develop home. Particular reasons you know they're not that he gave the web in the third row I'd be real happy with it is weapon in the third round after that I figure there's. Really or forgotten that it. Potential at some point we talked about Chet Kelly. In what eat all the fuel character plot medical yet he's got at war second round now. Brett client he's not stopped. Both of whom have a lot of now they've got size talent that got arm talent. It got athletic ability. They're just not ready to work or brown or brown I don't know. A block try to develop either of them and I think the other guy that is a little bit like cook got into me Peter and trumpet. And I think a lot of people tell me that they actually be very similar inquiry focused Tea Party dedicated and have a big warm but that's not all armed and well within his patient and timing and he's the kind of guy. That might be. A lower level are. So. He did not need there a guide to quit now and only twelve ethical Napa. Not so yeah I think it picket picket. Shot almost every year with one Mika. Doubt what that Donald I don't know about you I'm down you know second round or on if the bills. A C quarterback they like him good grades on sure bring him in even if you got tyra but the thing at the front end of that somebody with Mike may act that got my attention. When he talked about not first round quarterbacks who have become good I think he called stars really and included. Kirk cousins in there he included a Derek Carr. Inning included Jimmy rappel. He is drop although at that level. It's he would Derek there is dead yet Derek current level is he at Kirk cousins level you either with them honestly Nigerians. I don't think you can compare because he's played by two games. You know also hockey and you compare him to those guys obviously now you know you have so many. You probably gonna have teams that offer something like a first rounder for him. At doesn't mean he's going to be good started as a means gonna produce one another team sign him to know how you can make that comparison all due respect them like me out he includes him in the conversation. As if a drop below is. Proving anything or is demonstrated cities right. You know I'm viable starting NFL quarterback they tackle you you put him in the same boat as. A beer car who had a MVP type season. You know really calm and a Kirk cousins whose produce over the last however many years what two years that he's been restarted and he's really produce and you know that's why they can't get a deal done because he wants so much money. And they wanna keep mass like he placed the franchise tag but Jimmy drop mostly to gains. He showed that he can make the rules and things like that but he hasn't showed that he can be a star weekend and week out ethical difference. A stuff I don't know that wasn't maniacs you know overriding point is talking about how you don't have to go in the first round together. The good maybe you're better than good quarterback and a I'm all in where that. I'm good with that here's call from Tom go ahead Tom welcome here on Aramis. Hey John I Donald thank you for taking my call. Them. I I guess I better listen to forget about check Kelly. And my hesitant with him battle tank. I I think we are really up doll I think people are really don't playing good how. Much trouble he gets himself into but that type of oil wanna make the point elevate him and he just sort of there with me it looked it up. Carnell Williams Jonathan Williams Carol Richey and Jonathan Meeks. Seek re Anders paying partner Johnny white wing nick Perry and Alvin Bowen. They're all nothing right and they are all Islam takes so you're gonna. Your product that prompted doctor probably make the pain so why not. Try it on somebody like Jake Kelly and and I know bound together he got a threat for me but. I don't know what it merely for the team you think quarterback and it you guys you'll get an extra pick up there early if he'll be anything. I honestly I have to think of a no brainer to pick biscuit. With my belt. I don't care cowards is under 200 houses this and it. What's that there he Callaway in Tibet Robertson thought it so the last eleven years there he wrote that now that. You know how decision. If you only have six picks in the draft you need to make it more now so you know you don't need to (%expletive) guy in the fifth round that. You're saying he'd mine meticulous about. That the bill's death particularly in Ted Kelly became a great quarterback that will be all great for this town a great story and all that stuff. But realistically. With everything he's been through off the field having him here in buffalo. I just don't think is good for him as a person as a player I don't think is that the best thing for him to be here ball flies rather him be somewhere else. If he ended up in buffalo later on in his career I'm totally fine with that but as a rookie. Thought through all of the things that he's going to in his past I was still think it's the best thing. And and Tom your point you don't want to take a flyer on a quarterback fifth round or wherever. Yeah I mean I agree with that I don't know the chip Kelly's a Reich I. And I'll be honest with the army in the dark here I don't know what they are great it is and agreed will evolve over the next several weeks as we approach the draft. You know I don't know where they have Chip Kelly the bills I'm talking about where they have him ranked among this quarterback class and there's quarterbacks in this class. And they're guys who were not first round worthy some don't think they're any first round were two quarterbacks who what do the bills and we've seen lists of quarterbacks it. And how they fit in in. You know it's Chet Kelly he. Is he up high in the bills let's I don't know my game is depicted it I don't know. This tech Kelly wasn't in -- his nephew right now we'd be taught well of course you know we'd be talking about another quarterback like him to take this guy elected to take the gotten pit. Much had to date Brad tire one of those guys you know I think. Just because Ted Kelly is connected to Tim Kelly because he's his nephew that's why we're talking about and so much. That doesn't necessarily be mean that he's going to be Tim Kelly yeah. For those so watching this I'm a cast on screen you see a list of the top quarterback prospects. As determined by NFL draft scout independent agency is not the bills with this that anybody's list and atlas like changes we move through the draft process but. On that list Chet Kelly is the ninth highest quarterback. Behind guys like Greg guy of the doubt talked about. They computer and from Pitt that like may act talked about it you know did some pretty good things at the Senior Bowl. Davis web at California and of course the top three or four Drabinsky Kaiser Watson and home so. Yeah I mean fifth round sure I could. I I'm OK with drafted a quarterback down the line a little bit I'm I'm very much OK with it I just don't know the Chip Kelly is the guy for. You know bright your reasons knee injury. Off field conduct. And come we'll see mania in the thing that got my attention Nolan and Tom on the line meted. Point of reference in this in polian and and I may act or Diana. Polian. Quite frankly might be just got to carry in Waterloo but for is is buddy Jim Kelly you know and it fairly and that's fine. May act though got my attention when he talked about how. Without the off the field stuff particularly. And without the injury concern that second round tale that it's my attention I'd I'm feeling I need to bounce it off some other. Expert types on an Indy this week and see if they go along with the new look. It's this. You know the baloney season it's all talk right now button really every is he really have second round talent is armed talent that that good that. He might be considered a second rounder without the the baggage that he carries that they if they got my attention that's. Not I just think that here in buffalo and nationally because Ted Kelly is Tinto is not a feud that's life talked about you know I think if he didn't. If you didn't have to Kelly last name. You know we be talking about him just like everybody else but because he has that Kelly named we talk about here a lot more and people would love to see him here in buffalo hoping that he could beat him telling. I just don't I think it's totally unfair to be cute he knows he's still a kid at the end of the day coming into this week. And the fact that we keep talking about him because he's in Kelly's nephew means that there is going to be extra pressure on him. And it's not even just because he's playing quarterback now he has pressure of being Jim Kelly's nephew playing for the Buffalo Bills I don't think it's the best thing for. Got a call here from Tony. Mean Canada across the bridge I Tony La premiere on the year. Eric thanks guys I get called into play your last street caller I called in last week. I mean maybe you remember one tasker was filling in for Donald. And action that. L all those bands like myself. But all he's got a call and and it just trash and tyra I gotta get rid tyra you know quarterback. Straight start I mean I don't heard callers evens in. It's at to show that quarterback with one quarterback and I called out and interest after kind of agree yet. That number one rushing offense yet that numbered and are not all but overall. And there are so many alternate defense that fax. I don't understand like I mean why does everyone think Iraq can it get at however when. Think Tony and some people might agree I I. There are people who don't like tyrants they draft a quarterback okay. But Maryland doesn't think that Donald I don't think you get that sense. Obviously I would like that aren't here on this roster I'd personally. I all right. It's Tony Tony I personally feel like you know I agree with you do defense is something that they really need to improve upon and they only have six picks. Right so in free agency in through. The draft you have to improve and obviously wide receiver. And and everything else should be defense I feel like Tyrod Taylor can can win games for you and you can continue to have a tops in offense with him he obviously needs to improve but you know all of the talk about trapped in a quarterback these take this on Watson do you bring tech Elliott here. You know Tyrod Taylor for me should be the guy moving forward I don't have a probably drafting one. He still to be the guy moving forward and you should be trying to improve the weapons around him and the defense. Here's Don and buffalo welcomed on your on the Aramis. Page on Donald Rory guys that are outstanding. Good good on site a couple of the last couple caller I wanna make trouble comment about that. All I hear a lot of church really thought I really understand we're problem obviously would awful thing but. I don't know how much you guys to dug into the quarterback class but. For me I've I've really dug into it I have a copy and myself in this is probably the worst lap I've seen in a very very law. We don't quite say that I mean really when you look at the top 45 guy I have Kelly in the top five is because of the game played. What he's done in his career it's you know in the Southeastern Conference that that you all met. But when you look at it in the top three guys electric Geithner troop in the end it looked a lot. You're not hearing one thing where everything a 100% pop you know when he bought each one of the. Yeah and and Demi god has done you've heard I've heard you've heard people say. I think may act or somebody was saying there's not really a guy worthy of of top ten pick with somebody probably will be drafted right would you agree that. Yeah I would anywhere really when you look at the top ten pick you looked at by the group Procter and need a quarterback or could draft a quarterback. So you know you look at their effort that goes Chicago where it up with that what are they gonna pull the trigger on a guy that can be honestly I don't think should start they want. You know besides those three that I mentioned you talk about a guy like my home and not attack the fact. Everybody out of their system throw for 5000 yards plot. Beat by a touchdown or what can they do Indiana well I mean that's the biggest problem annoyed for Donald in the past say that. The quarterback coming out of college or coming out of the spread offenses. They're not ready to go on how to sell its third year BR yeah oh it's on the bill that their number fan. Number one I probably looked great back because. Some of the position we need we look at safety receiver quarterback. Rear seat deepest positions by our in this graph. I think you could find a starting receiver quarterback. Going all the way through the set the ground. We could take two receiver back to you that he would take it Tuesday but what you guys that to me. You got Edward Hebert and you got air defense throughout and dom and I think that's the way we do so I'll I'll hang up publicity. And you got your make some sense there down I gotta say in the you know Donald if if you look at it with only six draft picks with needs a little a lot around the buffalo roster. Trading back. I'm waiting for. You might have to wait right up till the minute before you pick but a team that thinks this interest in one of those quarterbacks on the you know the top rung and thinks we don't get him somebody Ivan look at the draft are yet to tell a Democrat who might be but somebody might. Panic and make him moving and give via some extra trip capital to work with them like the smartest thing for the bill to do. I mean with only six picks and all of the holes it's in that you need to fill you know to start to build a foundation on this team. Turning back could be something that and we're not saying you treat out of the first round you can trade back a couple around a couple of picks and pick up picks you know same leader in the draft but. When it comes to positions like wide receiver like corner. You can find those guys made an address so you need to have as many picks as you can. To be able to do this many guys in these teams of the I would have a problem with the bills decided to treat that you know but at the same time. You gotta be Smart. If if there's a guy who you identify and he's still sitting there. Do you take him or do you treat that as bastard that's the hardest thing with the draft now with the gamble. It ended the key is and and they're pretty good about this he can't fall in love with one player and say we gotta have this guy ten. Because you got to get to their pick and kind of examine your options having so the browns second pick first round will be number twelve. What you know what the browns get miles Garrett first overall everybody anticipates add and now they still have a quarterback question and that they wanna move up one Willa a couple of picks. Make sure they get their guy their quarterback whoever it is they've identified. And they draft the quarterbacks every year for like the last five years that in years you know like they've taken a run in the first two rounds when they're still looking like he says so. I wouldn't be surprised that they were right. OK we identify one of these guys. And the bills make that call and they in the trading back to twelfth it you know and at that point. You can take a seat the users there's enough safety at that point you to take a wide receiver you can take a corner because it's deep. And those positions you got to be Smart to draft in ninety city Kansas fall while one player has. Also Lewis a slug me. I. My call her and little bit to change the subject what you guys are talking about but. I just want to say something about it always comments yesterday let's let about a role ready must not called alternate. And how could you say something like that one lonely at its heat in the early nineties that we're all of neglect I'm trouble off the field I mean. I'm one that did not talk bad about our beloved bills but Bruce Smith had his problems off the field that we all are. And at age group all. Jim Kelly had tons of off the field issues. Go through his life opened so even a little bit after you retired. These two guys never had any problems Odom Randy mosque when you're younger. Off the field that cleared up and never had anyone who's older and these two guys at numbers charges. In saint compared to other people's. In the top they only have to go through without a fight so how could he say something like that and being aware it would keep the problems they get it clear that he stressed. Did anyone look at the. It's not and actually polian has I'd read the comments on Rita began her for those who. And are familiar with a Pauline has come under some criticism for his position and he told the top of fame network that's some of our bodies including Ron Borges and and Dick Clark judge he told them he was asked about Terrell Owens and Randy Moss two they belong in the all the fame and he said quote I like neither. He said I want players who contribute both individually into the team. TO situation Tito's temperament his ability to contribute to the team was well known up front it was going to be a problem we did not want to deal with problem children. That's number one number two every year in Indianapolis is falling talk and we said. The price of admission is 100% effort all the time and everything we do. Hot we take Randy Moss when we make that statement that simple polian I think admits that both moss. And Terrell Owens will wind up for the Pro Football Hall of Fame this meet talk in here. But says he wouldn't support it and come. A quick break I like the following a lot of surprised by that though because. I just them I'm surprised by that I I think both TO and Randy Moss are probably going to be in the offing. And that I'm surprised that points position is so strong against. Right then go that's that's my thing I mean if you have a position on something. Obviously you want people to take the strong positions. An and stick to it that's your position in this state to a obviously. But. For a guy like Bill Polian come out and say something and and and basically in contrast these two guys. You know for guys that haven't that didn't really get in trouble off the field or anything like that it's it's surprising you know because Bill Polian is respected. Among. Around the league he's respected by the writers that actually get the votes and everything you know so. It's like when you have when you have that type of respect. You sometimes have to watch it to say you know because it does I'm Kerry believes that he believes it play. He'd what can you read that again he says something about problems children. Yeah he said when he uses the colts they tried to avoid. Problem children we did not wanna deal with problem children that's number one I mean that that is this time. That's a strong statement to say about the money that. Didn't give me any trouble off the field. You know agent talking about Theo talked about TO yet there's Randy Moss obviously when he was again terrible play you know when he got older when he was in the NFL he wasn't in trouble like that all the field he was the same as TO as far as not. Not like in the media. But I mean that's what we're talking about we're talking about the writers and people that actually vote for this stuff not like in these guys because of things that they indeed in the locker room or they might not have wanted to speak to them basically you know so it's it's tough when you get a guy like Bill Polian to come out and say something like that about. Here is Jon calling from Niagara Falls to go ahead. I gentlemen are you doing. I have a reason we're drafting mentality and hear me out. They before firm who knows but. We all know the most important thing for any quarterback could be able to do is seem to feel process when he sees. Naked in the decision on what to do and do it in time and that while the brain. That has nothing to do with the bigger arms or anything else. Don't help you need don't do facilitate your decisions by. Seeing the field that's bringing that I. And the bottom line is reader every time you can't teacher you know it's physiological. Jim Kelly had it. I'd like Joseph Montana in the computer field June solid feel to me and the decisions Jameer that the interceptions a year but who cares. He made decisions and got it done. And maybe champ got the machine its DNA if tiger made up beat you learn it you don't buy it he might add that. What you. Right yeah no question in my arms. He might he might I all I'm saying is. I don't want the bills to deviate from their grade on a Chip Kelly and don't want them to to reach for Chip Kelly I don't want them to. Consider anything except what his grade is how we can you know what's his what's the status of his injury. His knee injury what's the status of his. Off field issues is it totally behind them. And most importantly what kind of players and and Kenny win at this level any help the bills that the winner at this level I want them to lock in on that and not be. Swayed by any other arguments about. Lineage your pet pedigree or word G geography. I don't. And ideas that I know right now is like baloney time to custom mired but I want to talked to some scouts. About it and you know talked with some people really see what would people are thinking about it because. And I just really believe that if if if he doesn't have to Kelly last name we wouldn't be talking about you know maybe another one of those quarterbacks and I'd group. That we're talking about later and and in the end and the fact that he had issues about the field in people be like oh he's done like he's not indecent even be drafted you know but because he has to Kelly's last name but it's kind of like yeah and you know it has issues off the field. But he's in Kelly's nephew so maybe he's just note this is that's who we're talking about here buffalo. It's tough man that is it I just do not believe he should be here both laugh like he would be able to flow or somewhere files let him Eagles routes that became home. It's hard enough of players that play back home when you don't have backed because you deal with so many so many different things fan remembers when it comes to gain and and things like that on an everyday basis. For him he has off the field stuff. He should be somewhere else. A break we're gonna switch gears a little bit we come back and talk about this past weekend at the E. A.

That is elation for all and now much like for all we have our own championship events and then competitions so. But just Lisa we saw here was a caught in East Coast buffalo region championship featuring. The best players who opted in to represent buffalo. And the winner is gonna move on to our greater club series championship piece drain the champions from all these equally messed. Now how many of these different events do you have before you get to that championship round. Yes there is suffering around process so your first step into this is to compete on the matter an unranked latter's. I your second step is to compete accurate good enough you may top BI to compete in his life regional bands. And in the final step is the overall championship which only eight competitors get to go to Matt. I'm not a gamer I don't know Donald if you are but what makes a good Madden player like what characteristics. Woody good Madden player like these eight they were here in buffalo this past Sunday what would they have what would they have gone four. Yes and these are playing again we call up and that it met ultimate team salary cap so basically you're allowed to construct a lineup. From whatever. Players exist in the Mac universe from all together. Under certain salary cap so it's much much like the GM role on any yacht club or franchisee. So not only these guys have to be strategically savvy you are to weigh their options to get the most are our players. But the myth to be good on the sticks meeting. You they have they have their reflexes hand eye coordination a bit ability to read routes. And call plays on to confuse their opponents so it's a mix of strategy and tactical ability. Matt this is why we did because that we do and everybody doesn't make it's it's. That he is yeah now but after after the championship round that you guys have out in California is there like. It's something passed that like the world around us something like that. Yes and it's all part of the united shipped its series which is our economy competitive concert for Madden players so. After the close series championship in LA. Actually the top two players from that will be invited to the match and championship. Which will feature the top 32 players who. Who been competing all year round. On the line with Matt Marko he is commissioner of the mad not competitive gaming division they have there. Buffalo championship this past. This past Sunday at 716 of those of watching on the saddle Cassie that our very own Steve tasker was air Cyrus want Joseph bills' offensive lineman who was there. And buffalo won what it's eight cities NFL cities around the league that are hosting these events are they all pretty well received man out of buffalo do. Yeah how close the third quarter net at third and that's not an easy and it was actually India the most broadcast of the of the three so far on you guys may have been know that one right before you guys as New England so you guys that I mean there are big at all and now. But I there was something certainly special mobile one. Now Matt there's some big money involved in this right if you win these different different around different championships. I. This level of competitor for 101000 dollars the next level the compete for 50000 dollars. And then the Sudanese man championship will be commuting their share of half a million dollars so this is out there is up over a million dollars compared Madden this year. And these guys are all underweight Ernie great share that these guys make a living out of this man in case is that possible to do. We do some definitely got I mean I get all know with the million dollars on the line you know I figure there's going to be 1010 it's all individuals who may. Over 50000 dollars this year if you were able to run the table across all these events at which. There has been able to do but I unique close to making 300000 dollars for the years ago you we have quite a few competitors who. Were able to do that where the sport is all your round. And I think that awful winner David Katz is not truly professional but. Who knows maybe he's on his way to shoot and that's that's in the future. We saw some of the video David Katz who nicknamed himself. Brett what the hell out you know man. I'd he says he's the best thing for instance like that. And how good it see how would it be show the Madden players this past this past Sunday here yeah. Well for us for some perspective you know David I would consider to be an aspiring amateur he's dabbled in Auburn and tear on the first breakout event. Two win the title he beat someone who is ranked. Ranked twelfth overall. In them in the Madden standings or corporate on the US he beat the twelfth ranked US player to advance out of buffalo so. Easy definitely has such actions here now is that he's not from buffalo. He's from Baltimore Maryland. For more see the people of awfully got to step your game. Nine. So pray. It's amateur the folks that top eight were from India know the buffalo area greater New York area. And so bread paid his own way up here right to participate in cold cold with Matt. I took. Gregory Lee he's about 21 I don't think that is exactly at birth but he's he's he's spring chicken. Young guy in these via. Champion out of buffalo. I'll hum how much is this sport grown in in recent monsters are years. Matt what do you see all the masses that this is. This year's the second official year that EA has been out running running a formal championship on meant to edit history has gone back over a decade but. I would kind of hurts that is the pre Super Bowl era and now he is doing is unifying. You know the various competitive communities. I into one championship tracks you can call is basically that the second year of the Super Bowl air offer Madden. The you have a guy who you know has been. When he a lot of championships since you know you go back that decade is there one person matches reigns at the top every single year. Yes yes I once every single year but we have a player they they call the greatest of all time he goes by the name of our problem right. He's the only player in history Emily sue and won it I'm sorry he's made it one of two or 31 multiple management challenges are Madden events. He's won a total of four. On he has takes yes it struck gold floor. A couple years now but he finished second in our last major event which netted him 40000 dollars for second place. That's not. Now he's he's ranked third overall in our in our current circuit and I did you resign on his way to the men's championship. How big can this get and what do you see maybe the future for. NFL teams involved in this or in the men competitive gaming. We are millions of players who competed Matt and we had millions of fans who watched these major events that put on here. You know we we just we aspire to be. A competitive product care TM product. Similar to what the NFL blitz on so. You know 88 it's the same sort of stand on it's it's similar sort of skills. Are clearly you know you're not on the pads in you pushing people around catching balls but you do need a football mind to be great anatomy you need reflexes and dedication. So you know we see this says something you know as as Canadians are rising. And pro football fan and is at all time highs. We see this as a complementary product that on your vote all venues you'll unit and on at least understand the basics of what's going on. And I'd share offer your favorite competitors. We hope this this club series will grow real this year was tested eighteens. Are we hope to grow further furthers that every NFL club you know will have their their champion on advance to future tournaments. Now we on now that. Well I know because I've played minutes ago that a lot of these players. Are gamers themselves they only have anything else to do when they they train they go home and play video games or do you have any NFL players that actually. Partake in Europe tournaments. Unlock and and we we do not ones that try and unfortunately. Not eligible guys being in on him employees of the NFL on the in the clubs but. Yeah there's actually a pretty decent history of talented NFL players are more Rees Jones-Drew. You can watch an Angel network he's actually a free talented player. Charles Johnson. He's moved around regularly plays for an outlet I he he's attempted to qualify for terms in the past he's. He's a legitimate term declared I'm Greg Olsen is actually pretty good as well so. We we have. Opportunities that you know it's so yes some some players talk better game and actually can play but we do see some legitimate talent out there amongst the real NFL players. And that's thanks for coming on today with us to talk about it we're glad it went well here in buffalo and we'll keep an eye out for this looks like this going to be something in the news in the Munson and years ahead thank you. Actually in our next tournaments they wanted to sit out the may may 31 April 2 we broadcast teenager. And the man chipped it starts April 30 and runs through on May fourteenth and got to be televised somewhere. Other finals got out of a network you can catch the other action on individually on twitch you two minute ride to the digital channels great thank you met we appreciate it. No probably ten guys met. Last Sunday which Brett. From Baltimore coming out of from Baltimore buffalo it's thankful all the we're. Brit a break come back with more than John Murphy shall from one bills practices Buffalo Bill treaty. Things he's not John Murphy shell. And now what have we learned from today's show. His front you buy advanced alarm for reading Western New York homes and businesses with the finest insecurity home theater. They prefer alarming home theater writer of the Buffalo Bills what are we left we have James had a vote. On the show today earlier ID still say he's been about a month from buffalo last year they needed him when nobody started profit ahead of all it's free agency next week. We asked him about his time with the bills and when he sixty. I'd definitely definitely thrown into the fire. You know. You learn that there's this system that was inflation. Was able to you know play pretty at a bar pretty high level. You know the guys you know were also in terms of you know communicating with the enough understanding. Allow me to understand the defense. You know even. Just immediately be just everything about the experience. It was great feel to come in play. I'm you know you bet they have really happens we see your players coming in right off the street in there you know going into the starting lineup in its final play at higher levels. James add a bow on as the season with the Buffalo Bills he was on the show this during the 1 o'clock hour we spent a lot of time today talking about tomorrow head coach John McDermott of the bill's gonna meet with the media will be on our show live from. Indianapolis at the come by tomorrow and we ask you honor portable what are you most wanna hear from coach McDermott at the combat we have more than 3100 votes almost 3200 boats and overwhelmingly. Our respondents saying at some clarity on the quarterback situation. 23% say wanna know what McDermott plans are free agency. 14% say one of the gonna line up defensively and my percent say something else we talked about it though not quite sure we're gonna get much clarity if at all. On the quarterback situation tomorrow. Yeah I mean much to say we talked about it I don't think that he would come down and same thing tomorrow I think that dates their ass and talked and that they have to do between. You know the bills his agent in the bills and other teams and some listening to some must write they have some listening that they have to do so. You know tomorrow in the next couple days are going to be very interesting and I don't think we'll expect and it's a decision until probably next week. Yeah I it is really it's unfortunate because we do get a chance to talk to coach tomorrow but there's no. Urgency for them to reveal their attitude you know their hand at this point. On the quarterback situation because march 11 as the day they have until then they may get teams coming up don't come by and say what would it take for us to get Tyrod Taylor. They may get agents coming up elements that they are guys gonna be read my guys going to be released here hum would you guys Beatrice it's kind of a fluid situation. The you know people say. People stop me an approach that fueled that what's good and what Tyrod and I don't think it's decided you. I don't think it's this idea in my can sit you wouldn't I was at the doctor yesterday and two ladies like what's up with the era might have no clue. And yeah you're you're dozens as good as mine. You probably won't get a decision on Tyrod you might start and next couple of days to see.
