Yeah it's Paul Hamels CN. Community. Backup he's a pain. Put up just who this parents Don WG ER Sports Radio 515. Because that's the facts. Paul can make it up as good as anybody I've ever heard. He's with a sunny AT&T hotline how's that for an intra I don't ballparks big and making things up you with your wife by have you is value picks on my fourth infant and the driver or you're killing me Hammel then you're not the same table. Now we're and I value not same table after a series at the same after your comment making him old older by himself Shrek I decided you could not sit in the sand table. I'm not a descent and I told Jeremy that if he put us at the same table I was walking out but if we're drafting as I said hey I have him and his wife is a value pick my boards sort mitnick who not only are we not a thing table you're on the opposite side of the room. You're as far away from me as you can do. But maybe that might be out by lakers now you're just huge speed lucky you're in the room okay. Thanks thanks for the Sheila. Leave your you know open your Hewitt you know tight right I heard of her I just could and I knew there was a prince time and I just couldn't remember what the heck it was. Also to podshow got a pretty good how he takes the day off he goes away and send you out 21 bills drive when there's like eighty different things going on I text and government so thanks for. Let me go out there when I got to write 950 articles. You dwell 951 it was it wasn't busy day so less than that there's a lot of ground to cover Nash got a couple hockey questions for him but 02 days. Will what the heck went on anything of note. The other to stop their shorts off so it's it's basically you know getting used to the book playbook got going there things. A little toasty. I mean. There are a couple of fights out there that that went on so even though they were in shorts and pads. Some offensive line committed some linebackers and defensive lineman decided that they've had for each other by so that would happen. Yeah I I think right yesterday the more instinct part of the they would have been you know you first chance to hear the coordinators and and meet with the media. So we had Rick Dennison a little bit this morning in a look at some of the stuff he talked about yesterday Paul let's start there. What what did you hear from Rick Dennison that that the it sounds like you know he's going to be fitting an offense to Tyrod a little bit I think you you're gonna see him rolling out which is the intelligent thing to do. I mean get him out from behind the line where he can't necessarily see the gets a lot of balls knock down. And get him moving a little bit. You know that that puts pressure on the defense to trying to track him down to get to lament. You would hope would reduce some of the sacks. That he took because you Tyrod for whatever reason. Doesn't get rid of the ball as quickly as some other quarterbacks to it it does cause the bills have headaches. As far as sacks and that type of thing by. If you know it there. I'm much this year Greta I think some people are going to be run first offense than. Take advantage of that it doesn't sound like you know they're going to be fill in the foot the air with footballs and you know so it sounds like Haiti it'll it'll be a a lot of writing the football maybe different types of plays and we've seen in the past but. That's some record changed to marchment philosophy. Yeah we were too we were talking about that earlier Paul Rick Dennison was all of us at 6:30 this morning we got double the interview and and we both reached the same conclusion in that might not go over well with bill's fans. Tyrod is talking yesterday about taking his game to the next level. But I I'm with you and I'm listening to Rick this morning it sounds like hey they feel and and he kind of Kennedys like. I'm an old offensive line coach what do you think I want us to do run the ball. It sounds like it's going to be a different staff but the same basic philosophy of what the offense looked like the last two years under. Greg Roman and then Anthony led. And let's be honest in less Tyrod improves drastically. You're not get too far with him throwing the football I mean how many games we're talking about a hundred or under 25 yards passing per game. You know Heidi sometimes he can hit open receivers sometimes he does they would see open receivers Jeremy. With some of the tape and film that you you watch I know you see that where you have open receivers that argument look that. Charles clay would come to mind. You know for that one soul. I I don't know how much. You're how successful you're going to be if you are putting the football pirates' hands and having him throw the ball. 3435. Times a game I don't know how successful you're actually going to be the he's more successful when he can. Uses speed to get himself around and then you know kind augment that with the past. I wonder how you know tyra is talking about taking his game to the next level. I'm not sure. That he can take his game to the next level if the philosophy is going to remain the same and it's run the ball and as you said Rick Dennison was talking about get it out fast identify the read. You know get your footwork down get that ball out on time and just keep the chains moving. Yeah and he's been around enough I don't know what the next level might be for him might think what you see is what you get. It's not like I easily in his second year and you know sure he he has started his whole career. But he's been around the NFL and been in the NFL with Baltimore and then came to awful became a starter. So I'm not in my opinion I don't think there's a huge upside there I think what you see is what you get. Paula dishonor AT&T hotline 80305 to two to join us 888550 to 550. I feel like I'm gonna ask about Leslie Frazier and I feel like I'm not sure it really matters because it's it's gonna be Sean McDermott's defense right. Well Rosie Fraser as have well respected coach in this league I didn't I didn't mean that I don't think he'd get her to be pulpit for had I don't mean it as a slam I just suck it up to get the guy was the head coach at what the defense of coordinator. I would say that about any head coach who was a coordinator that's gonna be his concepts. I think to be hired he needs to be in lock step with the head coach them you know booed since the head coach was a defensive coordinator. If talk he talked a lot about the fourth story in you know using the linebackers in wrangling in Preston brown in Humber and Alexander back. Quite honestly when the first now what was on the field. Well yet doubt for now my immediate two linebackers and yet five defensive backs and I think you're gonna see a lot of that I think the actual or three. I'll be surprised if you see a whole lot milder especially with all the way offenses are. Multiple wide receivers and that type of thing but base 43. You might see it against the dolphins when they're gonna you know tried you know write down their throat again like they did last year and made the bills' defense. Embarrassing if they could be a compliment. Two games against the dolphins the way they defended the run. But. So. It may be that he 95. Linemen on the field you know against that team like the dolphins but overall. I don't know how much for three year actually see. Yeah. So it's not that EA itself brought this up because if you look at a popular get the you know from the line to linebackers to the second arrow through the DBs in the safeties together. There are some really big questions that linebacker. And you know one of them is this drag and come back and can he play and is he healthy and you know loud. What is Lorenzo Alexander have left you mentioned Ramon Humber you know who knows what you're getting a line backing core but it might not be as big deal because. It's like you're gonna have three linebackers out there on a regular basis. Yeah and the thing is. I always tell people pot you know pump the brakes on Iraq Agilent they're plated out of the NFL yeah. Some people and I'm not saying you're just did that but some people I talked to. Government a pro ball. And it's like you know hang on he might be a great player he also may be a bust we have no idea I mean he heated get through training camp last year so. You know we need I think we need to pump the brakes on him and he still not ready a 100% he still limited in what he's doing. When I said we sought to linebackers on the field it was Alexander brown they were the two that were out there at the time so. Frazier did say there are going to be probably times where you will see Preston brown and rag and on the field at same time. So it's not like you'll you'll never see that so. It you know regular had a great college career and you would hope it translates into the NFL but he had a major knee injury and he's never played it down obviously. I forgot I knew I forgot and obviously thank you for bringing up Preston brown I said they wanted to couple hockey things with you before we let you go. But up all the coverage from yesterday with the the new hires for the front office as well the draft picks signing. Ivan that came down yesterday you can read it all at WGR 550 dot com. All wanted to ask you about the sabres and and who knows what's gonna happen when Jason box or what move she's gonna make. He made some comments to I'm Elliot Friedman the other day in the thirty thoughts at sports net's web site that. Bought the set I he'd be OK with starting next season with Robin Lehner has his goalie. And we were against Israel today we brought it up could leave you know would he want to do anything with Pittsburgh to bring one of their goalies and what are your thoughts about Leonard and where buck truly is with his goaltending situation do you think you look at one of those guys for the penguins. Because he did say uncomfortable starting. Next season with Leonard wasn't exactly a ringing endorsement commitment to Robin liner. He went on to say to me he. I'm paraphrasing is bigger worries right now against sending death my and I think I would take him at his word I aim. Don't find in the playoffs he's won a cop. And he got pole last game enabled it to get pulled I mean. I still not in a mindset that I wanna treat form. Again letters fine and I don't I don't want them to get carried away on a contract I'd be. Myself I'd be looking at probably the two year deal that. Would be less than four million dollars a year. I'd be looking out for liner. I think he's earned the right to stay and earned the right to continue. Is he a top flight number one goaltender we have not seen that yet but I still think there's room for improvement. Man. He's right today I think he needs to be looking a lot to first saw it get used salary cap under control he's got to find defenseman. If you can get liner for two year deal not knowing where cal Peterson's gonna fall nobody knows whether he's coming out of college even if he does. And the sabres signed him or is he gonna go to on restricted free agency so. I have I have high hopes for all market like guaranteeing your reason number one goal in the NHL I don't know. But I liked what I've seen in Rochester I think he's ready to commit and be part of the tandem with liner for this season so. No I would not be looking the penguins and Wesley wanna memory available to me but that's probably gonna cost you more. And I'm with cheer me a little bit I don't need six million dollar goaltenders. It's kind of like trading for first round pick for goaltender drafting or running back in the top than. Just I don't see the need for well bad news ball you can't get Ben Bishop to the sabres for six years now to say you know. Whether they got him her I I was thinking they're gonna get stupid tree give him six million they didn't they got that contract under five million. So I thought well that slot Bert I thought it was but he still not a contract when he handed out. Prefer Ben Bishop that term or no way money I just the term was long I thought the money fit enough. It okay as they said it was under five million which I thought he needed to be bad about me it's four point nine and what's like yours it's under fire at this level five. Which I think I can live with that but. What's he gonna be 36 or 37 when account at the end if he sees the end of yet you know we have three years they'll be trying to trade him and trying to subdue take contract offer hands. Woolsey. Think Paula laughing when asked about. Is rats mistress the line and that's one of the other things doctoral talked about. These big fan of rest this but wants to do something to manage his minutes ideally. What what what it what are his minutes like this is I assume he'd still be on the number one power play or what he would number one PK top two defenseman what kind of minutes what should. The sabres do. To handle. Properly properly handle rats mistress the lines playing time. Well I think for me that was the end files with downfall is handling. Of of game situations and the biggest thing is the minutes that he piled on Bristol wanted him O'Reilly O'Reilly or the line in. I think crystal line in just pass to. Inside those minutes stop trying to be everything. And stop trying to be well. I've got to do everything out here because we've. Heard it means I'm gonna. Do your job don't do your partner's job don't do the forwards job. Do what you're out there to do stop thinking about everybody else out there and what you may have to do extra. To try to help the team and I think that's where he gets himself into trouble. Because actually I'd like to see him more often the play which you would think it's a little bit more tiring hearing but it. I think you have to reduce his minutes if you want him to be joining the Russian be up in the play. And do those types of things and be effective because I think he can be much more effective offensively. By biking up in the play it when he does that he will rarely gets caught he's good to get back here and and those types of things but that's gonna take more energy which means they have to reduce the minutes Wilbur. I still want them on the par players to one among the penalty kill but. I think you have to. You have to have enough defenseman your team you trust putting my on the ice and not every time there's a defense is awful out Rasmussen Miley out of Rasmussen out there. While he's got kill full two minutes of the panel. Because we really don't have anybody else. And so. I think issue improve your defense. You know I think that can help you reduce his minutes through what about McCain there in terms of Russian up the Irish joining you know joining the -- the tallest up your talk about the risk the line and can McCain do that too. I think he can then a lot he saw the cape get in there a lot he he just week had the missed the net. Disease and I mean Derek he had some great opportunities this year where he witnessed some witness than that he'd have apple opened Mattson. He seems to be pretty tricky about. You know a pox in his own the next thing you know he's back door nobody sees them. Andy gets over there but then he misses the net. And I think that's what he has to do is start being able to convert on some of those opportunities. So he seems to me pretty Smart to be able to gauge when he can jump into a hole. And get himself open like that. And I just think he needs to be able finished more to help the office. Well mr. Hamilton I major promise we move pulse time around this morning behind the scenes we can moved him back and forth a little bit I said I apologize to a minute text and I promise you that I would say something nice. About the Yankees because I felt guilty about moving your time around salt.
