On the subway fresh take hotline John Murphy Donald dale the Indy. Kyle Williams joins us on the hot like Kyle welcome to the show it's a diamond job in the coming back I think everybody's pretty happy about that times. I'm sure you are as well now. What them guys that would go on. In every Mon well that McDermott coat. We can hear you yes coach McDermott indicated today that your common back Tommy did do pretty good about that. How do you know he and have had some extensive conversations. Spoke to a coach rate hearing coach awful and you know they they obviously came to me like we definitely you know want to back that this. Com are planning kind of our vision and in acute if you can see yourself in you can get excited about it we definitely want to come back and play. Just kind of let the ball a mock cordon. And my good that I liked everything that they had to say and obviously the dollop buffalo all of you know Bill Clinton both also. You know I. Plan to give it my all again. Chicago's McDermott obviously you know known to run a 43 scheme couple years ago when you guys had. You know the top defense in the you guys around and afford three did that factor into your decision in coming back. But but I think some of some of the game had. You know something to do it it news and knowing how. They wanted me to play how they plan don't use that made but they're really more I'm asking that his vision for our organization isn't for. How you want strong team. It's. It was very attractive. What did you get from those conversations about his mission now what did you hear from coach McDermott and and even your position coach. I think the main thing was he he spoke about the process the Dodd's committee and you know have an opportunity to play compete but. It's not something that your only do it on Sunday at the open that you have to every day and it meant everything that every day. I'm the process of getting prepared the wind you know as we all know everybody will look at somebody but you know you went Monday through Friday so you're really focused in on those things. Obviously dramatically what we're gonna do talking to got around the league I know that played for him play for coach waffle plate for portraiture. You know just just made everything kind of come together and look better and better. Kyle what do you think about quote colossal everywhere you know we hear. And everybody's heard about you know he's a little bit. Crazy for lack of a better term and so what do you think about who Obama. Well he. If you can't if you can't get behind and you can't respect the coach that wants you to play as good as you ought we can't. And pushes you to be the best you popped the can be you know I think you're in the wrong business so anybody that in a demand the best for me that's gonna push to. Pushed me to beam up there and give my best effort. I'm all import that kind of thing doesn't bother me if you don't like that or you're not willing to work for that maybe needed a public stuff. How Williams bills veteran defense alignment on the line with a subway fresh take out my dumber he Donald Jones at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis cal com. I wonder what you were looking to hear not what you heard I guess but what what you're looking for are hoping to hear from a coach McDermott I mean. I was or anything you know I don't know how. Deep into consideration of your future you've got but was there anything that you know could have been a disqualifying factor or prevented you from coming back with the Buffalo Bills. I didn't have any preconceived ideas about what I wanted to see her out here you know I just wanted to do. I just wanted to visit with him about you know what his position was so what all out. You know how opted into anatomy are we or we won't you are we after. A playoff speedway after a winning football team what are we gonna do what we wanted to do and everything that he spoke about the he integrated may. You know every arrow pointed toward you know what. Look look I wanna play yet you know I feel good you know yeah I got I got over my back strain actually got a little bit of pop couple weeks off well built it. Iacocca promote the year so I had the little black ax slayer out so. You know it's it's just kind of all. You know all encompass all the things that we all spoke about all the different coaches who coach McDermott how opt out how to build up play house built up upload. There are warning that direction. How actually goes McDermott you know he was hired was seven weeks ago and you didn't really hear anything from them. As as something you like and a coach a guy whom it is you know he kind of keep things close to heartened disposal work. Well I you know I think there's all different ways because at all different ways to play. You know it's it's it's. I guess that is what you rather what you prefer. Lipton I mean honestly you can. You can talk a lot can not talk a lot. You know it as long as we're gonna hold guys accountable we're gonna work Oregon we're gonna be dedicated to be the best so off they are in the best football players we and they. And you give me my helmet and my issues that you let me go plate I'm happy I don't hear what's go. I guess island and you don't some of us wondered whether the people in your position might make a decision based on where they thought. The franchise might be headed in and you know if there is if there's a total rebuild on the horizon you've been through that before I guess some of us were wondering you know TDs this child. Wanna go through that again I mean what. I don't know what that is it fair to think that way did you get sort of any kind of indication that maybe that sort of rebuild was not in the works here. Well. Sure that's yep Canada's. You know that the feeling that I got when we talk to. It's you know we're we're we're not here up. You know at deconstructing remark from the ground up you know fill cause until we have. Some good pieces than. You know I mean it isn't as much as people like to talk about rebuilt and redo I think in the NAFTA. The senate shall mean a lot of times you know you'd the united yet knows you know or I've been six years that you know to rebuild and read news not that you know it's that's what have you done for me lightly. And the I expect to win that coach McDermott can expect the went and I think that kind of thing that he ought to put out there. Now also I wondered and you know we talk about culture change and accountability what. The kind of accountability that. I guess this team's been lacking in May be that that the kind of accountability that you might be looking for McDermott might be looked before. What does that look like I mean how does that manifest itself on India and professional football roster in Clemson team. Well I think expectations have to be set Arlene carried out every single you know it's not just up and they were gonna. We're gonna do this we're gonna do that and then you know hope it showed you know comes out or comes to fruition don't come I mean it it really isn't that. If that daily commitment to it and it sometimes you have to be reminded about it lately and you have to know. The that you committed to this organization the way that we're gonna do things the way that we're gonna play flip all the way to organ work. And you know sometimes you need to be nudge or reminder our push that created the daily saying we're not gonna just talk about this event. Like I said earlier that it manifests itself on Sunday shows up you know we're gonna talk about it every single day because. That's part of the process and that's what we're gonna do. Values that if you need to be known as a reminder to me how do you get something might that Dunn says seafood on a team where. Does the massive that's a lot will we heard was guys warrant you know holding each other accountable so. How do you get something like that done for the guys who were here last year that will end up back on this team how do you change that mindset. Well I think obviously it'll start with you know coach McDermott down in his staff and then you know it'll work its way down through the players. You know the Gaza have to understand you know I and I think it's more or you know the more time goes on we're seeing a different. Kind of generation and different culture god without David has not been in the league debt. You know you year you really have to be a problem yet to talk about the yet pop up brought there. You know they're they're not they're not. They're used to the end you know kind of self gratifying you know looking out for number one and and I think that's what that means it's easier successful year in and year out you know they get the right kind of got the doggone right apart got our break Mitt keep the other commit to any. And that's when ya think that's what coach McDermott the doubts are trying to build. And. A couple of minutes left which now Williams fills a veteran defense of Lyman joining us. On the phone from his own moments Donald and I know you live from the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis or how we had to coach McDermott sit with us here last hour and he. At a lot of good things say about you including said that what I'm telling too said he has our type of DNA. What he means there it sounds like you're too connected in your conversation. Well I just think you commitment to the process commitment to every single day you know reading about op at the what the profits out of that may not you know I think it made complete every day and working every day and then hey you know what. I put my head down and I worked my tail off and now looked up and here we are you know twelve years into my NFL Heidi did. What committed himself to the European the best we could every single day. And that's what the process isn't they would see at the same way that way you know when I go out and play and I wanna play with a much passion and energy and focus that I can't. And hopefully I can make the guy next to me better in the Al mothers out at me better and I are locked back better. And not just because I'd draw attention but because you know what. But they see the way that I play that you delay the apple player. And you know and that's contagious you never know how far healthy that's gonna go. You know in your roster and you know that's important. Now twelve years in two year career. You're an offseason you've been off for a little while now a couple months now I guess. Yeah but where are you in your training process have you gotten back to training yet what's going. Yeah I'm backward and out back background and I actually just. Of the incorporated the new thing that out then I'm due until you look. I think they're gonna help mop body yet it didn't seek in the ER get me. Give me prepare for the year so you know it's you know kind of just Donald upswing now it really started over the last two or three weeks then. Get a ramped up from here. Cowed by my count it you said you're going into your twelfth year now and it will be your wealthy over the Buffalo Bills and by my count coach McDermott will be your sixth head coach and I think including a very fuel with a with a brief interim stint. As a lot that the coach ever epic year an average. It what do you think of enemy what does that say about what's been going on through your tenure here in buffalo. I'm fortunate obviously I mean that's not what you want because you know they're just shows the blackened the athlete that we had Hillary. No Dietrich to block such as the up and there's not that into the hole dammit you know that. Yeah I think the main thing through the years you've not been. You know I've been committed to the Buffalo Bills in the Buffalo Bills organization are amply represented a best buy that. You know no matter who the coach by The Who they came there he always wanted to to play my best I wanted to win for my teammates are in our city. And you know and out and out there that would church carpet you know on feel like. You know he got them a good view of where he wants to go and how he won't get there and you Dominick do my best. Oh lead in motion and to get it where we need to go you know wanna be that think current. How at this stage in your career you've been to many pro bulls. You know you. You've accomplished a lot personally but do you still have personal goals we know you wanna win because you have been able to do it and yet we can use they'll accomplish personal goals. You would guy that's been through him and into pro bulls and really do one of the best players in the league. I don't I don't have any personal goals. You know they Nicole that I have left. Our that I'll always had there have been paying bills at about you know if I can be the best for my team to help us win. You know that's only good for everybody in and it just worked out we're within the idea that framework that. Team and how our team can be bad if I have accomplished. You know the individual things that I have. But like give me. In March. In my twelfth all these in at 33 almost 34 years old and getting prepared and go out run and in working out pollution mop up it. Being a winner. Get in the playoffs winning a championship doing it in buffalo given that the you know given it ultimate teammate and our fan base of people who deserve it. You know at any given at all that because I deserve the best make. That Wiki speeded up in March it's not let me get outside and get another contract are pay you know maybe going at another pro ball up now I'm over all that. I'm past all that. You know I stood on the field and why have stood on the field and Orlando but the bet Scott currently in effect the best thing that we'll all have golfer for me. You know it's not yet opposite they're not acknowledged it still is not what a law I want when I want to be achieved it would be a winner want to offload. Alan duke for the people at the service and not only imagine. The field they'll get from it. Get yourself fired after if if they refer that to go it was twelve years ago you were here at the combine in Indianapolis and I don't. Mean I've witnessed you. Talk about your com by performance you. You some good numbers here become my did you back in 2006 and I think the idea I've heard a couple times that maybe yet. What you're glad you're not here now at this. I'm Mary. But no you you run out not that that can or run it downhill with the wind. The effect that the the I bet you could tell thank for this we appreciate it. You gotta update. Now Williams joining us on this okay. Thanks Collins joining us on the subway fresh take out my subway eat French it is the John Murphy show from the NFL scouting combine in. Indianapolis I asked that question because not too many years ago a couple of years ago. I heard Kyle on the sidelines and in a break during practice talked to one of the bills it's doubts about the how come this didn't go back to 2006 so now you know 111211. Years ago. Com this guy got drafted enemy that house three citing chapter and verse of his come by numbers vs the guy forget who the other defensive lineman days if he felt that those eleven years later it was like I did that work that I got. Pushed down that was the fifth sixth round in this guy in sixth round I think right now. Fifth round I get it out of this guy get drafted enemy after what I did with the public. You know it's something that you really pay attention to you know you look at guys numbers you look at their own numbers and he compared to other guises like okay. I did this that come on he did this I did this you know issue because this like why did he of them getting drafted before me guys really take that type of stuff to heart. And you have a guy like how who are ready he works hard everything today he are ready brings it. Now millions of gone and fifth rounds and explain what it's a woman showed so that's why you have so many rubles that's why he he brings it every single day and he makes sure. That in any offer the lime and across from him. He's gonna dog him every single day and it's because he has that simple mission noted he's so upset. From when he he you know he was passed over five rounds. There's something about what I heard McDermott say about Kyle he has are kind of DNA and Kyle said today everything he's he just said it was everything he spoke to me about. Every Errol pointed to me wanted to play again there is already despite that I don't think the two have met face to face yet at least not since the McDermott spent a buffalo. I think it's pretty apparent there's already at a pretty good connection between the head coach and Kyle Williams arguably one of his more important players. Yeah I think you know so McDermott identifies Kyle as a leader on the scene. You know and and not just the leader a leader but he identifies him as one of the better players on this roster you know a guy who if it this isn't his. Last year playing maybe he has one more year after this next year. A guy who can be a foundation piece moving forward and a good mid towards of these players. Still while he's bawling out there on the field I sometimes you have veterans that come on a team you bring them on your roster. And you look through them to be a key special teams got a big can be great mentors to the young guys the young rising stars when your team. How is a guy who can be a star and a mentor at the same time because he's not big headed he doesn't have an eagle or anything like that Lackey said. He just wants the play he just wants to win every single year and that's the reason why he's back he doesn't care about Robles any of that stuff he's made the money all I wanted to was when. So if you missed it earlier among the things that coach McDermott said today Kyle Williams. Will be returning to the bills there was some speculation that that might not be the case that's happening now a coach McDermott had very. Little clarity on the quarterback situation saying that. The process continues they're gonna take their time in deciding what to do what Tyrod Taylor like here new and I would like hear you on our Twitter poll the bills obviously. Need did make the playoffs need to get better and maybe what's the best route for them to get better in 2017. It is the topic of our portable. It is up right now on her Twitter site at John Murphy show what's the best way. For the bills to get better in 2017 about 560. Votes cast so far. On Twitter about half 40% say the best way is draft picks. 46% say signing new free agents 90% say keeping the bill's own free agents 7% say other. Give Richard thought that matter anything else were you expecting more on Tyrod Taylor today in terms of a news. Well let's talk about 8030550. Or toll free 1888550. To 550. Com and you make the point and we can't really put it on a portable but. It's not even. You know signing their free agents. Because it's not just the US phase one appearance sake they can make moves with guys under contract on the roster. Moving forward and we would anticipate there will be some of those moves over the next few days here leading up to the start of the league year next Thursday. I mean you see it happen and all throughout the league you see big name guys. That are being released in a minute cat cat he's not that this person might not. Because in opted to cut it and more is the fact of the matter is this person make it to much money right now and we need to be cheaper. And so either we can go to this person is say to him re re in re redo your deal. If not then we have to let you go or if it's a guy especially in a new coaching staff and he'd identify the guys making a lot of money. And he doesn't really fit in in my scheme he's not my type player doesn't have our DNA. Well that you become it has that feel that it you know so it's it's. It's two different fronts that he's dealing with what did you do see guys at this time of the year did release because you have the gatekeeper. You have to get lighter as far as the cap number goes so that you can bring in the guys that you want to bring him as so that you can get ready for the draft. In the attack goes to the heart of what our Twitter poll is about. But you wanna get better if you want a dip in to the free agent market you need some money you needed some space at the thumb and especially with a new head coach coming in and new coaching staff. You know there's always a little more turnover with a new head coach comes in unison it's what you would anticipate that will be BKH case with the bills here this year I would think right. Unique despite Randy Moss made the streak has only need to be able to pass and pass in the bank that you can give some guys the money. And bring the talent in here and we're not saying you break the break the bank on guys. The best teams to get the best players. For the cheapest price. You know you don't go out there and overspend on anybody this is where we have this linebacker bureau will linebacker this is where we had he slated to make it you wanna get outside that. Is not going to do about that you can go to another team in and make that type of money but we're trying to build a winning franchise. And so if you wanna win you come here you may decide the money and you and a. This call from Jonathan dean all the hello Jonathan go ahead you're on the Arabs. They battled arm I agree with bulletin board then I'd illusion I'm trapped I didn't go to the draft that means. At our what the accord that I didn't think I feel like about Chapman a playoff this year. But ultimately allow went to the ball well but he got require that simply finding that I'm operated something. Yeah I don't know that I love Tom Brady but did that's that's a lot of people think I'm a marathon race. You know that the that we talked about this a lot Japanese quarterback every year and and the fact is when you drop the quarterback there years Palestinian we only had six traffic's. You know if you. You can say you can argue right now that they needed at quarterback anyway but every year. You use an update that it can use somewhere else to bring in other talent you know so. You need to draft a quarterback needed it to happen but the right quarterback you know and and unfortunately in this league. I'd be trusted until you find a guy you're in it consumes you the F. But that doesn't mean that you should go on to strap equipment everything year's draft went out one draft when people on the right guy because been. You're not given it does it to draft the nuts on the even develop into the end of the Quebec. Yours off from Dennis in buffalo got the dancer on the Earth's yeah hi just on. Calling it's. I'm sort deputy here especially with here topless on the term Dermot Kyle. Wings as you practice here now to me I'm not sure how you guys look at it and rock kind of looking for signs and whether entire round to beat Becker now. To me this. Might be telling us a little bit that they might be leaning towards bringing Tyrod back. They didn't want Kyle Williams to play anymore. And they started pumping some of the older veterans like that. That would. Tell me that they're looking to. No rebuild a little bit you know maybe get first round draft choice and in the first round for quarterback coming going back room. What's your opinion. Yet I think he's very happy I'm Denis yeah I mean you can definitely try to connect the dots. From what he says I just think that to be honest with you. They still trying to work things out with with with tyra would be an agent there's still trying to evaluate tyra like he said. You can you can say. Because he says one thing mrs. wade the way to the team is is leading by. I don't know if if that's on. Well I tell you what I think they hear Kyle talk about it and that's why answered the question about the I think. They hear Kyle say yeah I got a sense that we wanna win now now does that apply directly to the Tyrod Taylor decision no but look if if some if they would told Kyle honestly and after the pretty honest. Look we are gonna cut back this year we're GNU take our lumps. You know kind of start from scratch. And you know. Factor that in your decision Kyle. I said that's not what he was told he was told that it would try to win now if you wanna read into that that parents coming back. Go ahead we have no affirm or you know convincing evidence that that's the case but right I certainly think it is. I think it says something the fact that Kyle I guess the question Kyle he asked the question of management a in my jumping into another rebuild that. A full blown rebuilding year and the indication I got from counting too was note and told them you are now. You and you were at a time when now. And I think that day because you think about a guy going into this club here not knowing you know he's he hasn't won yet he's accomplished everything personally on the field. Our combat right if if we're not going to win. While I come back I don't wanna come back to a total rebuild I wanna I wanna win if I can't win. And I rather not play. You know I don't wanna do is keep those moves a move this messier at this point mockery has chosen he has all of that they can spend time with you know so. He's made the money as none of that stuff really matters he wants to win now so yeah. You can definitely read into it that way and it and it could be your I would think that he probably axed him you know what's don't know what tyra. Everybody all the fans wanna know the media wants to know I wanna know what's gonna would tyra and I'm sure they probably gave him an answer either way. If you wanna hear we will have yet to be posted soon our interview cal Williams a tweet here from Christopher stack who tweeted I want my boys who play sports to hear that now Williams interview. 20 yeah it's Florida got warmed up to view it took awhile but he finally got warmed up and got into a little bit I think you're. It was good to hear how that fired up about coming back in. You know who knows what role they'll play how much he'll play but I like what I heard from Kyle Williams and like the fact that the he's given back with the bills for another season. Don't know the movie yeah I think after we don't it's a big sports today in it's a big hockey trade deadline day in standing by back and Orchard Park Andrew Peters and Craig reveal a we'll have you will take you through the next couple minutes here with an update on what's going on around the National Hockey League on the trade deadline day we're gonna take a break and have more to come here from the scouting combine in Indianapolis our coverage of the 2017 NFL scouting Tom by. Brought to you by NAPA Auto Parts we are live at Indy at the time buy it's the John Murphy show presented by no go. I'm Buffalo Bills radio. We're back with more of that John Murphy shill. Welcome back to the John Murphy show but it's actually enter Peterson Craig Reeve made. As the gators WGR Sports Radio 550 and MSG little trade deadline talk obviously trade deadline goes until 3 o'clock today one deal. Sure you're following closely you've heard the news but handles the word talk. And to cherish your alma de La. Going to the Los Angeles Kings for 2018. Conditional fourth round pick going back to the avalanche and I believe there's going to recent salary retain in that deal as well. That's the trade rib that we were wondering was gonna happen not drama in the going to a contender is LA. A contender and contender now. Well he made some deal I think it's an Jenner or they. A playoff hopeful. Because they're not even in the playoffs right now so how how can they be a content of the year they want the company finished eighth soul I mean I don't think it really that and they just need to get in and make a good push between here but they've they picked up bishop is this is drama given the type ideally you'd think Kelly need to make. I would have liked to have seen him in Edmonton personally. Life Jerome again last. Is without rideau one of the best players that's played in the National Hockey League in the last. You could probably what is it twenty years. But you know this is this is just a this is the depth pick up Jerome is not nearly the player that he was five years ago even. So you know. So here's my car you have to sit here and talk about this trade because it's the only one that's happened since last time. Don't know we don't deserve another question for you because if you got to 2018 conditional fourth. And UN might pack a Mike was on our shoulder day with us today poll said that you would rather have Brian Gionta. This year than change don't or drama gala so does this do anything for Gionta has value. If if Tim Murray does decide to move him by 3 o'clock. I would you know again you know IA IE. Regard Brian Gionta season as much better than not Jarome Iginla I think the way that Brian Gionta plays right now. He. I've said this many times he plays like he's 25 years old. This guy this guy looks like he could play at a high level for another 34 years. I mean. What does that you saw them why are you so keen on moving him if you think that this guy could be a player. For cop let's say couple more readers are a service of a very serviceable leader. For a couple more years you know you see what Pittsburgh's done with guys like Mac Callan did good teams over the years have done it for a long time they bring these guys in. For cheaper value now and the bonuses satisfy their contract. But I mean this is the kind of guy you need going forward I mean you get rid of this guy say he doesn't come back next year. Now you've left a big hole in leadership he wants to stage he's made that clear I do believe. And I won't disagree with that IE it. If you're asking me to be you know GM for the day Biggio I have are going to move Brian Gionta. Because every little pick that you get means something down the line. That's all I'm saying soccer and if Brian Gionta wants to have some some talks and and some dialogue evil coming back. Next year absolutely I would be I'd be willing dead to have those talks in conversation. But as of right now. Every single pick I will try and and and gather for the future that's just that's just the way it is were not at that point where we can kind of say you know. We don't we don't need to gather more picks are more. You know pieces to this puzzled because were in that transition now point were not the tank were not in pain care of we are starting to move forward as an organization and anything you can gather were not a team that's gonna make the playoffs but anything you can gather moving forward I think it's going to be helpful. Commander came courted not nervous while my former army. Gold for pizza. Pretty standard trade deadline day for a guy whose name has been talked about so much yeah you know I already all packed governor ignored. Is there any I hear that he's just gonna wait this thing out and see if his. See if his phone rings that at 3 o'clock today but. You know hunt I'm sure there's lots of teams out there that would love Lichter lips to get their hands on Evander Kane because I think that he's playing as good hockey is any in the National Hockey League right now. Is. He a guy that you would expect because the contract situation it's trickier with him if you don't move beyond restrict free agent after next year. Do you look at the contract extension for matter I I play with guys that signed extensions on the deadline day and you you have a couple names right now Bob. Philly just resigned. No waivers and I birth now. Under yup but to a two year deal and Omar. 22 year deal obviously locking up two guys that would have been. Under stricter freeagent so law. He others there's lots of lots of movement going on just not only entries but the teams that are trying to lock up players. We're the instant gators Andrew Peters and Craig rebate just giving you a little bit of a trade deadline update just telling you the draw McGinley is on his way to LA for conditional fourth round pick. In 2018 quickly before we got to hear anything happen on this stage maybe ten years ago. That's a good line may be the worst trade in Montreal has a means for San Jose who won that deal. While everything any brought us together for a. You know what Marty beer always nice enough to send me ten years ago today I was traded to San Jose. There is a young defensemen from San Jose in the name of Josh Georgia's. Great up and coming defensemen. And I was also traded for a first round draft pick. That first round draft pick turned out to be costly one of the better goal scorers in the last. A number of years for Montreal and Max patch ready soy think Montreal. NATO quite well in that trade let me tell you something else I'm happy to hell hole on that now let's. Let's just continue to keep that trade going a little bit they also picked up if I'm not mistaken a couple seconds for George's. So technically remain brought. Defenseman. Which turned into two picks. A first rounder which turned an Olympian. And you turn into one hell Oprah cats sir I've found that I. Hi guys. Our John Murphy backed out at the com buying will check in with you shortly if there's anymore deals we will check QB surely if there are currently -- as to wrap up that trade deadline day. March 1 big day trade deadline will be right back against the gators WGR Sports Radio 515 amnesty John Murphy shall come back. We that was more of that John Murphy show. Welcome back to the show we are live at the NFL scouting combine and Indianapolis John Murphy and Donald Jones company from the media center here. In the NN India documents incinerate extort a Lucas Oil Stadium. Right down the always actually right over their from the players' hotel NFL world this year we are here for today. Tomorrow and Friday with the three hours of coverage each day. Talking about what it will take to get the bills better what's the best way for the bills. To get better you've probably heard from head coaches John McDermott he joined his run at the top of the show today we got a lot more coming up but on the show today but give us a call lines are open. 8030550. Tool free 1888550. To 550 take a call here from Chris in Rochester. Good afternoon Chris welcome to the show. Poor guy will this'll all applaud that they didn't back homeowners here. Stating that we should grab the guy every year to leave your own Tom Brady wanted to comment on that and says. We need to find someone that better than Tom Brady like I'm tired of hearing about the patriot. And all those quick if you wanna compare Tom Green maybe you should be a patriots and lake. It's kind of ridiculous that I have been here or there will stand compared quarterback to Tom Brady who is he good but I respect the guy yet but like. I wanna be built Stan I want to be better. On what what other new coach is doing. Who's better than Tom Brady Chris. Oh yeah. Who's better than tambourine. Aren't there and I anybody that we draft I'm gonna agree with Donald he says that we shouldn't have to like waste a pick every year. On a quarterback when we have other needs. I'm paying like just anybody that we and our thoughts our franchise guy you know like the future franchise guy I would like the well built and the arts and payments and avoid comparing everything to Tom Brady on. Martin. Okay well I mean I area I'm sorry Christie a doctorate finish there. Brady is the standard Donald how can you dispute that he's the standard he's been on top of the bills now in the division for a decade and a half or longer. And yet it everybody gets tired of it but you have to acknowledge that is the reality. I'm Brady's definitely the stand news probably the best quarterback to ever play the game in my opinion at least the best one that I've watched play the game. Statistics show he's the best quarterback completed game but at the same time I do you where he's coming from and today you wanna be able to find Mac died if there's. The problem is that these guys don't come on it'll come around that off you know even the best quarterbacks. Of the past five years that have been drafted guys like Andrew Luck. Haven't been able to turn into a guy like Tom Brady is Tom Brady when he first jumped on the scene he was. There was Wallace you know and so. It's hard to find that guy you need to find a complete team yes you need to have a quarterback you need to have a franchise guy but you need to complete team around him. So that you know he can make plays on an everyday in every day out basis and so and I feel like that's what coach McDermott is setting out to do to find a complete team obviously day you wanna have a franchise got what you look at a team might the colts. They have. Would they feel like is their franchise guy guy who everybody talked about as being possibly the next Tom Brady. But what have they done thus far because they have that if they haven't been able to political team around him you know also. For me. They need to make sure that every single year they use the draft picks wisely it's not just about. Finding a quarterback every year we all know you need to find a quarterback. But I feel like you need to find a complete team and so that's what I feel like coach McDermott has sent out. Do right coach McDermott met the media here today at the India documented senator a lot of coaches and GM's filtering their way. Through the room including the new head coach at the Jacksonville Jaguars de Peron. He was here in our so going get a chance to challenge Obama hallway but went to the podium today and that really I think for the first time. Since he left buffalo little bit more than two years ago Perot talked about his tenure in buffalo kind of a controversial obviously not kind of it was a controversial departure at the end of the 2014 season for dug around. Couple of somebody who will want soundbites wanna play for you. Doug morrow the head coach now the Jacksonville Jaguars talked to the media here today about what he took away from his time in buffalo. I think you take away a lot I think you take away in Lebanese Hillary's Ernst and you look back and obviously. You know I made mistakes in buffalo. You look back on them just a couple things that you just try to grow from it and do a better job so. I always appreciated that experience I thought you know Tim and I mean skewed media commentary the cooler we're we're great cumin and you know mr. Wilson was awesome while it was alive when I was there Mary Wilson. The people in your organization with a lot of great people there. And I think when you go back and you know you look back him and I'll be honest you know there's some things that I should have done differently. I think I've learned from that and it's maybe a better better coach today. Never really heard coach Tyrone talk about that is that tenure in buffalo before in the fact that. He made mistakes he elaborated he was asked to elaborate on that. Verona at the podium. Here in Indianapolis earlier today. And he talked about how is departure you know took the buyout. Walked away with time left on his contract because there was a loss for him to allow him to do that but he did admit today while he was asked today if it was a mistake. To leave the head coaching job with the Buffalo Bills here's Doug morrow. I mean I'm I'm not gonna sit appearance they know wasn't yeah I mean that's that's definitely a big part of learning process of you know one more time and things of that nature you don't privately I've I've I've talked to. The military about that me and he knows how I feel about a minute you know obviously keep that conversation private but. You know yes I would say absolutely you know you learn from that that's that's that's one of the mistakes that you wish you can go back in and do over and you just wish he had more time. Think when I look at a look at myself as I wish I could communicated things better at that time. That's amazing to me that you call for that period of recent builds mr. Dug around at essentially admitting today that he made a mistake. When he left the bills walk you know and taking the buyout and admitting that them you know he could communicated it better I think that's probably. Through on the face of it but. It's pretty amazing. You know I look at it like this and obvious now wasn't there wasn't around and all this stuff happens I don't know. The full. Is that you know we all make mistakes you know in and you make a decision and you look back gale warning. Years later say wow like I probably could do that another way I probably should have done it that way. And you know the people of buffalo probably wound will never forgave him or anything like that you'd you'd never be asked to forgive him but. I think everybody makes mistakes and at some point to look back on an iffy if you are really true. The yourself you'll look back on and say man that was a mistake I probably could've. Done that a different way and then he was honest about it today was like you say that's it's Great Dane and he actually came out instead that you know I made a mistake and I'm sorry about that. I'm I'm just surprised I didn't know that he had been in him that I never expected that he would admit publicly in front of the media like this that. It was a mistake to a jump out take his. Multi million dollar buyout and leave now what does it mean moving forward not founded. The mean anything but I would think that Jackson asked them about that you know when they were going to be able interview process you know why did you leave. They are without many of us thought that might be the thing that departure. Might be a thing that would prevent him from getting in next head coaching job at the areas he's got the job in Jacksonville and apparently had you know. Reconsider he thought about a lot which. Again speaking frankly I didn't know Doug morrow had an enemy it seriously that sort of is introspection. Self critical. I I did not I I rear rarely saw that from him during the time that I got an ornament that's not a slam but dishonest it's a that. Now I don't know person you know I'll I couldn't even to speak on out pinkie probably had a chance to speak to his family and friends and his wife and you know some time later proud right they were probably by pleasantly you know. Want to do that that that was the wrong thing to do we can do that a different way you know we all had that you know where he'll make a decision on your own. And you caught up in your fillings in your O'Neal right now this is what I'm bill. And then. You'd you'd you'd make that decision now is done and over with but big you'll speak to people. Mike your wife were like your family your parents or is there whoever you for your closest friends people in the industry. And people who are closest he will be honest and say listen that was wrong this is the way you should have done this and then. You know maybe they even say he probably has some points in a pilot does them and this was continue to do. Amazing I actually had that camera we're doing got to get through breaker but. I asked that very question dug around right here at the combined two years ago in the you know I guess along the same lines in May be more blunt language but. Basically my question is what we think this I'm that's a night. Got him to reconsider but maybe in like you said enough people Assam that similar question over the years that. Got him thinking what was I thinking why did I walked out of this but anyway I will get a chance to talk more about that I think is Joseph goes along.
