Us sports bar with danger and do exactly that makes sense. Insufficient. Bush on. You know. See him do some things today and we'll go from there it's okay. We'll see these days aren't there. Some big games I go out there. Six the other one. Movement at a time right now to see how it goes through the through the individual part practicing ankle. Mike danger it's the turnovers it's the ability to get the ball from their opponent and again if they haven't just bring it back around it's got to come off. Mistakes mentally portals and maybe you don't perform then gene which actually. But the bottom line here is Tyrod Taylor will have to make some plays here this week about his wife played again. You know they've got a good team strong team. I believe that our guys simply we've got a good team so should make for a perfect game. Rochester sports leader 957. ESPN. Welcome back danger of exactly where in the sports bar you can join us at 454 ESPN 4543776. Pull the store with your prediction for Sunday's action the bills and the jags are Twitter hole today at ESPN Rochester whats the outcome. Who's gonna win the game of the bill's gonna win by more than a TV or more than a TV here than a win a close one of the jags win. In a blow water will they want to close one need your options and right now Jean 60% of the audience saying that the bills. Will win. Close one yes 77 overall saying buffalo only 23%. Side Jackson or you would expect out of that. Aid our audience obviously will pick the Buffalo Bills but. I think the thing is here that it is going to be close dangers as what everybody is saying here and I don't. Think the way the bills' secondary plays the way Jacksonville's secondary players are either team as we Billy blow one other outlets there's turnovers and weird things here. I fully anticipate. A close to gain here but. I just keep coming back to this and win the buffalo bills' season and nobody is expecting. Write the bills are poised welcome our trophy I hate those words coming out of my mouth and like egg kind of laughing at a but. The seasons go on and for the Buffalo Bills with a loss. We know this. Whether it's next week you know England whether it's Sunday in Jacksonville but the regional happen in the end. Is this run the facts OK year you can only damn whammy so much and then it in the whammy remember that danger is gonna come up and by each. End to mean that's the fatal flaw of the 2017. Version now we're 22 of the Buffalo Bills. That is the fact that they cannot stop the run with any success in the fact that now a lot now. Left the Miami game and he hasn't practiced this week now you're gonna have normal number Preston brown. And Lorenzo Alexander I or not. Liking this matchup against Jacksonville because what I see Jacksonville doing in this game dangerous. They're not going to let the late portals throw the ball downfield it's going to be Leonard for that. I see this game going like bits. Three nothing 73 whatever it's going to be it's going to be close at the house. But if Jacksonville sticks to wait and see the bills' run defense wearing down this game that's my dear in this my prediction. I think that the bills because of what I've seen over the course last quarter of the season. Start off with a long sustained drive their first possession and get points might be a field goal might be a touchdown but they get points. And I think that right there might be enough. To. Keep Jacksonville on their heels they're not made much like the bill's exit to play from behind in fact. That'd attended sixteen that is O and six. This season when they've trailed by eight points or more and into the bills can get off. Like they have the last handful of games. Every Dennison Kumble and off its game plan that that creates a long. Sustained drive against a formidable defense put the defense let's not forget that just two weeks ago gave a 44 points to Sanford Cisco. And I think the bills have a chance to win these game you'd get near you get Jacksonville. Depress a little bit you you may be forced to turn over to an end you know. It's no secret turn overs of the success you winning any vehicle when the eternal battle chances are. Here when the game. Tyrod Taylor doesn't turn the ball over and don't suspect he's gonna start doing it in his first playoff appearance I have a feeling. Given how that the second half December went public morals he be more likely. To make a mistake it could be something as simple as a botched snap Gina we really honestly would you be surprised if anything like that happen during a wildcard we it's it's gonna be the most crystal ball we've ever seen. These are the wild card playoff games and somebody seems like the bills. Lucky to be here. Yeah they're they're flawed. They're not the best teams in the league in Jacksonville played no dad division let's let's call that out and oh Jacksonville was in the NFC date. The mount a new class altogether in fact I would say probably Atlanta. In Carolina those wild card teams much better than Jacksonville as the number three seed but that being said danger. We just have to look at this match up here buffalo. And Jackson all I think you and I are kind of the same feather here though. Coming close coming in as I I don't see either team running a candidate I. We've yet talked to somebody who says is going to be below one way or the other that point spread is a little bit ridiculous it is wrote back picked the bills. How long we had. Matthew fair ground with this last hour. Took the bill's rich Donald H Donnelley did you have your the only outlets that we've talked to that's taken the jacks. Are we looking beyond this bills' run defense I mean honestly that and I guess I have watched every Jacksonville gained here danger blind. It is tough going on the road any time in the league. There's one thing working for buffalo and Matthew fair burden touched on this and if you missed it will have that up re on the man tonight you go back and listen to it. The fact of this narrative that hey buffalo should just be happy to be there and there they don't belong there and you see. Web sites like the ESPN stats and info 538. All the analytics showing you had you know where this bills team ranks in playoff teams are not very good. It got momentum and that's really on matters at this point for a dozen on Friday means a lot. I mean something I don't think it means everything and it's hard because you can't really potentially. Quantify what momentum means to a team but. Yeah you won the game on on Sunday in an emotional game you made in the playoffs on an improbable. Fourth and twelve play that nobody thought you know every thought decade was over. So you know your writing oh wave of positive emotion right now. It's that is clouded by the status of a couple of your key players in the Shawn McCoy and got a lot of on the defense side of the ball but. You know I do think it matters I think that matters and you know I love Meredith and I talk about it all the time in and LeSean McCoy can't go in if you're able to work and Marcus Murphy who gets a little bit of an opportunity to get the opportunity exists for a guy who's only been a practice squad guy who's never got the chance to be showcases feature back. He's playing for a playoff win he's playing for a future in the leak. That's a motivation. And that guy is a guy that I want to see the ball in his hands and and yeah easy more prone to make a mistake because you could he fumbled the ball you don't sure. But let's be honest he's it was some accord carry the ball away he doesn't there's like does he not fumbled the ball the right this is a much of a chance and end the thing he's got coliform is he doesn't have seventeen or sixteen games of where in terror on his on his body. So. Marcus Ortiz and they've already paying close attention to. I really. Really like the matchup between the bills secondary. And the jags wide receivers. And I think it does come down to turn overs and at the bills are going to be again I think the jags might make a sloppy turn over to. And the bills will win the turnover battle and eventually win the game I haven't in 1914 buffalo vital to score a lot of Texans but to have the morning I hadn't scored one touchdown. I think hushed up. Does just enough I think it's it just reeks of a typical Buffalo Bills game where they keep a closer. The that I like are you saved. Reeks and then you say positive I mean it's gonna be ugly full I have yeah I mean think of the think of the Tampa Bay game. They give the Carolina game that didn't end the bill's favorite it's going to be one of those kind of oddly. Gains I think Andy. You know a few things at the bills have going for them and adding if they do get out to that early lead. I don't think Jacksonville's equipped or know how to come back from a deficit greater than he'd be shown that through the course of the season I think plea portals can be rattled I think it doesn't even mean that he's got the ball he'd like you not. He didn't have to be forced to throw the body just him throwing the ball is is and he could be potentially damaging. To the jags especially with the bill secondary playing the way that they've been playing. If I can put it another way danger and by the way you could always join as one note your predictions. 454 ESPN 4543776. Call your shot now or forever hold your peace here in the sport are 957 ESPN. If you had a goal and is boil it down take coaches. Quarterback's. Defense. Bills and two with a three there right I coach my role McDermott who you got. Room take McDermott. Quarterbacks okay realm all the pluses minus Tyrod Taylor at night one thing I'm taking Tyrod Taylor were Blake morals and I think you would you. Defense is them. Who. That jacket that that that's the reason why how Jacksonville got your danger. Jacksonville has a few quality wins winning in Pittsburgh defeating Seattle. The other bills that quality wins to I mean yes they caught Atlanta the right time out that's away debt equality way. But to meet to lot of three ain't bad but I think Jacksonville's got the best one what. And what happened last hear what happened a few weeks ago. William 44. To San Francisco and I'm not saying that Tyrod Taylor is gonna have a game like Jimmy problem crime but you know. 44 this defense is supposed to be in jail you don't you 44. To argue offense and has less weapons than the bills do. Well. Did they have them playoff spot clinched at that point or we had before come off the channel just so but OK that I would argue are the jags team that. Can be afforded to have their foot off the pal Bryant's you know down problem. The bills aging you've heard this narrative all week that the bills are in the playoffs despite getting outscored. By 57 point sets the fifth worst point differential by a playoff team in the Super Bowl era. But each of the six previous teams that made the playoffs despite a point margin of fifty or worse. Actually won a playoff game. The last to do it. The Tim Tebow led Denver Broncos in 2011. They had a point differential of minus 81 they got outscored by 81 points appear that they made the plans with Tim Tebow the Seahawks in 2010 you remember that. Their point differential of ninety's. That was a bad team in the playoffs now but they want. Marshawn Lynch went beast mode on New Orleans you remember back in. Now so. Blight. Instances in sport I mean that you have underdogs like this they don't belong here you hear that narrative I think that is going to be something that. Maybe the bills can rally around this week. But you come back to what team wins without their most valuable player okay. Op Bill Simmons the writer calls it the Ewing effectively take the players the best player off any team the rest of the team kind of rallies around. Just like how the New York Knicks in a run in 1999 with Patrick Ewing went down also knicks got that one out of that war while just the psychology of that. Only this bills team is made up that I don't think that applies here to the words of the Shawmut whole way. He's not ready or somehow doesn't dress in this game I don't expect everybody else did. To dig up their bootstraps. In doing it to me the Murphy story where you see it is the great story. A little bit wishful thinking on all of our hearts that he's gonna come in all Sunday tin Smith Timmy Smith member Anthony Smith the running back for Washington when a Super Bowl win over the Broncos ran for 200 yards somebody who was named going in that game and he was given a shot you shine. In burned out really quick that's the best case scenario obviously that he could come Maine in shining here's the kids opportunity but. Again. Eight analyst Shawn McCoy is a future hall of Famer in your talking. About a guy now they can be your lead running back that was not caught by one the cut by two other teams. These it was a third practice body was on in buffalo some danger again a little bit old wood. Oh sure absolutely and and let's not forget the fact the Mike Colbert is Sean McDermott's got. You know told we're probably get first crack those carries before. Before Murphy what but. It is blind spot right I heard is from I didn't like what we saw out of Murphy. You know last week you know and limited role he carries any was able to do some things in. It's just intriguing to me you know a guy that's fresh. I'm curious to see if and how they deploy him. Should the Sharma boy. 100% it's it's certainly seems clear that he'll give and go boy he won't be a 100% in the field geno. The United States five nothing over the Czech Republic now so how can than a finals tonight right final Canada and the suites tonight and then hopefully get Alex knee Lander right back Allen a mile under the back in the lineup Saturday night we got done Stephens. Coming up later this hour Scott writing into us on Twitter you can also reach us on Twitter calls a four fight for ESPN. Wright was at ESPN Rochester Scott riding in. The big thing going to the bills and Murphy is they both have nothing to lose Dole's win this one's seventeen to ten. Listen it's not too far from where I have a fair where I think Canada seventeen. But he C 1714. Something like that and it's it's. It would shock me if this is a high scoring game it would shock me if this is a blow out in one direction or another and regardless of the outcome. Let's keep the mind. Eights the first week of January were talking playoff football when nobody nobody nobody had this team winning more than six games. Anybody anybody really know crickets 00. Analyst. I don't know any fans that had this team finishing better than eight neat. I think eaten it would have would have meant to parade downtown buffalo. So ignited seven run in improbable lighted seven run of the playoffs. And you can't be angry and you know I don't know I. Rich Donnelly mentioned it earlier than the future does look right. For the Buffalo Bills. Right so this is almost the talk you're giving to people on Sunday night. That you're gonna be sad if this doesn't go your way but to really can't right because you see a direction for this team. You received. Some holes obviously but you can fix that in the draft danger I don't think this is a big big overall for this team. The parts are there you need to improve the run defense you one way or another have to address the quarterback. That's a deep concern but again it comes back to Tyrod Tyrod brought chew. A place work Drew Bledsoe didn't Trent Edwards stating Alexander I'll give Michael okay. In all these years Tyrod Taylor did enough to get this team all these other quarterbacks and. It'll be if you sing and you can be OK so let's give you a little programming note here so we'll have. Pregame coverage for you starting at 9 AM as usual on a Sunday morning.

Finally students are not back on campus jettisoned John Bishop but those that work to good reported today in the cold temperatures brownie skating. Where the scoreboard which the Buffalo Bills good luck in the playoff game against the jaguars. The seventeen years of the drought also coincided with the seventeen years of Fisher hosting the bills training camp in 1999 the bills trained as for don't give before going over pits for itself. It's all built stands including the Fisher grateful. Enjoy the playoff game this Sunday. He goes shots in the sports more danger to tightly brought to a market you liquor Henrietta. The only liquor store you'll ever need gas prices selection most helpful mark if you liquor Jefferson road. It Henry I always hated dad always Fisher's fault there you know the bills are men in the Clinton like Akron it's like. Like the Billy Joseph and every other curse in the apartment quick mock. That position nothing to do with a that was kind of cold at bay had a group shot out there today in a in the freezing cold temperatures in your right danger minus eight and what are they giving the schools are often what effect and now. How it works in the day I will say there is a big difference between. Cold here and cold he'd like COLT I grew up in Minnesota and I'm sure couldn a lot of them face in Winnipeg it's it's deceptive. Because you look out the window and you see bright blue skies and a bright sun mid and you walk outside and in the temperature is minus 23 with no wind chill of minus eighty. Here it's just grade. And dark and cold and then you factor in the lake effect snow and that you know so it's a little bit more. It's a little bit more of a downer here it's a little bit more depressing in terms of how bad the winters can get in fact. Do we it'll socialist through every time we talked to Matthew fair burn and we noticed it again today talking okay he sounds. What is different Matthew prayer burn when we know he's it is sunny place. And it's holding Jacksonville today but not this kind of Cole same thing whether it's down and it's thought yeah this son matters sponge should match which we. We talked to fair bird last year during the owners' meetings in Arizona and he was live they're from Phoenix. If somebody different guy like yeah. Happens elegant dynamic roared back to they were well patient asks the sun matters an illicit if it was sunny. Today but the but it was cold and a wasn't snowy. I think a lot more schools would have been in session but I think the combination of the dark clouds the gloomy skies the cold temperatures and the snow. Okay yeah they're they're not taken time off in Winnipeg Manitoba. Where you are the temperature is a lot colder than it is here. Fifteen seconds or baseball take ready danger Greg Robb called pitch count it's 2018. Pitch clock. You can speeded up here a little bit okay you wanna get new fans of the game you've got to negate make it more TP appealing. Stop with the walking around everything chop chop pick up the pace here I applaud Ron Manfred for trying to get this stuff. You see it in the minors that we kind of beta testing in the minors yeah and ends it she really isn't a factor rat like I I noticed that a frontier field but it's not something I'll think you would notice. I think it would be almost subliminal if you if you instituted that. In the majors as far as how you would be consuming it on TV I don't think it would matter that you would notice that he would pick up. So yeah I mean it would only become an issue when you get somebody out there and it's taken their own time and what an umpire have to enforce it and then the manager coming out. By the way too you can cut the theatrics of all the managers running on the arguing in this in that. I and there are ways they can do what you can eliminate some things on replay to the LST cut that down to that were all speed up. I think that these is a problem for baseball in speed it up I plot Ron Manfred for trying to get the stock. All right so. They spent a lot of time today talking bills and jags deservedly so fair Auburn Friday Matthew ferber joins us last hour. News and NBC sports were torched only join us in the 3 o'clock hour. The big news story of the day the breaking news story that probably popped up on your phone at some point the raiders. Set to make Jon Gruden eighteen year ten to me a hundred million dollar a contract like while that's an unprecedented. Contract for help. President the record was seven years give him head then. You get more tech coach has been around. Years in the national football at the two. Belly check and Marvin Lewis that would be yet. I'm not angry at a cheap because it's ten years that we're guaranteed to not have Jon Gruden in the money and Ethel Paul Booth. Well. That begs the question danger you have an opening ESPN is officially announced gruden to the raiders on Tuesday. No Madonna comes back I would welcome a new play by play guy. I have seen people speculate what Peyton Manning would be great to paint she's not when then no no no no he's got probably bigger plans to become the can only tell. On my vote if I had to vote if you want to weigh in 454 ESPN who should take over for gruden I want beef. Ball acts no guy. Not somebody who's gonna. You'll be a showman like gruden was my choice he works from the NFL network I think he's excellent Mike Maalox I want somebody who. Who's gonna tell me things I don't know who's gonna I didn't make things right on the spot till wise. Make me smarter. I don't need to flowery background on the quarterback I know that's a wide audience but it's money that Obama gets purple ball and Mike Mack of me get my vote. America was calling games on there's an F football for a while there when the NFL network first un unveiled that package right right and he he's doing some radio all now. So why I I did the draft guide now rate they think his focus is really on the draft like a Feely keys there. Easy NFL network. He's an NFL network's draft expertise or milk hyper. It what it does not him somebody like Louis Riddick was on ESP and right now I Riddick is. I think he's very Smart I think any herb what his name pop up for GM openings to I don't know what he wants to do that he be a good choice to. Who would be your choice to interact feared death. While there's really only one name that comes to mind I don't know if you're ready for me to say this. He's already had his audition too by the way one. Bad so it's a pleasure to be good you guys here on the field for a while until. Both events tells the from here. You watch him now on the screen. This diversity in the background helping him a lot tonight yes quarterback at Colorado that's defensive back Indiana. Sergio dip in the both all day. Tell me watching that humanity in the guys in the truck watching him like. Four. And he never went back the port. Having the time of these can't can't look all. I walked that walk right into that or give me life. Somebody that you know you had an eye on you always could end up keep you thinking and getting Cutler. It's going to be Kotler somebody like that play though let's let's. Look at the success story Romo had his first years and analysts in the Booth and look at how great he was let's use that template at ESPN let's put Jay Cutler in the boom. Hey listen I will say this I mean if you ever sit through his behavior sectors as many Jay Cutler press conferences I have. He's pretty deal with the media like he's he has a little charisma to him eat like it wouldn't shock me if he does get a shot the boot in and doesn't. He's an affair as well as Romo went. I don't gonna tell you is there's another ex bear danger is not Jay Cutler when he decides to hang it up permanently. It's going to be starts Brandon Marshall. Brandon Marshall is engaging and he's gonna have a job some more maybe he gets an opportunity and a yogi. Probably should walk a well dollars and yours. Walk away and it lets say Brandon Marshall gets handed the keys to the Cadillac and he's the value of the color analyst. For money and apple just blow it up at that point like adult wedge. Brandon Marshall and they withdrawn roaring off to all white hosts milk toast shot on give me give me somebody who just. Competes. Brad Kessler a lot of bright bestseller game at best game I mean you know he used to do Thursday and happily it was nest or male pride right now right in.

Yes certainly that we invite your way out to to Wear either their favorite Star Wars costumes it's always a fun thing and a lot of things going on so that's part of it of course that. That the main concern is the average taking on Lehigh Valley stepped in and TJ Brendan. Tomorrow night's tonight Brian. Brian Gionta little brother Steve is here. However unfortunately he's injured you'll be playing so there we have a lot of ties to registered former Irish are coming in the town next few games. Yet tonight Bridgeport the opponents. And it might have easily mile and a remaining with team Sweden they're gonna. Every dollar one way or another tonight so is it fair to expect we know Whitney Landers gonna report back to the hammocks tomorrow night. I don't know but I would doubt in fact I would. Probably if I was the organizations say no take a couple of days secures its its pretty grueling kind of a tournament in. And some real highs and lows and that expected. It would be better for somebody his age due to just maybe get it they're due to unwind so I really don't know that's not my decision. I don't know what their debt deciding what their thinking so. I would be surprised if he would be here or right of. And I Don the armor scanning. An assignment from the sabres today tells more about the new coming back. It's their Purdue and of course he was here for the first few games it's assistant captain the average and got called up to bottle rather defense of injuries. The many himself got injured. He was out to alert just now when he's been cleared to play and and there has been the course with the sabres or time and then as soon as he's cleared to play he can be sent back which is what happened. And as so each is expected to be in the liner to right it's a big addition just. An outstanding offensive minded defenseman so that makes a very strong defense of Corey could better what's going on just. Ice skating on his own still a provider injury and and it didn't sort of still probably a week maybe a week and a half away before he'll be raised ago. Couple of vaught HL all stars to acknowledge CJ Smith Linas hallmark talk about I adding we all know latest reason this team and this is second year than he's just been out of his mind.
