  1. Bills Preview with Murph & Kelso

    Fri, 24 Oct 2014

    John Murphy and mark Kelso the bills radio broadcasting with us this morning and you know John the the jets are one in six but they played well against the patriots last week the New York might be a tougher team than their record might suggest. Yeah I do it but there probably is dangers of one and sixteen which you'll ever see basically pretty woes is sitting at patriots and and days between game that was. A week ago or yesterday with the last time they played. Out you know they basically couldn't really tough teams to get to one point six bill complacent ought to welcome. I would just simply to cut scenes they ran the ball well against patriots 200. Yards on the ground. Other data Percy Harvey and penetrate with you know Seattle just that last Friday so they've ever. A new dynamic playmaker they're all they're desperate. Yeah there's a lot of reasons why they're much better than there was a church in Iraq that would indicate. And are this is the bills first game without Fred Jackson. And CJ Spiller you confident that Bryce brown and booby Dixon going to be able to carry the load at running back. Battle ahead Barton statement and maybe get him in the ball. Eight gave but I. But about those guys at that what they've bought and wore green and being picked up really well and act like. A bit. More dynamic it at that little bit more as diet and not go to get it from you yet. Going back Allen's suspected. Bit down at gonna say we're gonna stop backing it up and got the edge and it made it about it. Bart out but I mean I want to bring in one out and probably LB LB but all of them all up. Well. Humor of the jets defense very solid as mark to set against Iran but they have had some problems with pass coverage is that something Kyle Orton on the offense will have to take advantage of for the bills to win. Don't think so bill to do a better job throwing the ball now with or a quarterback in the world news she's human EJ respect there and I think they're they're showing. Willingness to throw the ball more than they do you know before there. You know ritual well runs to passes. Used to be pretty heavily tilt towards the wrong that the last couple games since it's going in the other direction. And you know the front seven jet to sell the prep or especially. And the best and little bit suspect in teams of ransoms except. You know brought to bear against some sort certainly it's going to be part of both we'll check out of the. Mark for the second straight week the bills are playing a team with a young mobile quarterback will the plan to stop geno Smith on defense be similar to last week. But I bet big debt get up and they. Think really a product development but I cured or not you are out. People are apt that at bat I don't know what their pot it. I don't really in boys. Don't back out in the pocket. Not quite a Adobe air as it would be like to get the upper. An early bet it might don't want caught the ball. But it act. Engine or jet but but he called building involved but he can end that I think there are OJ and our act together and got up and I. I think bill and I bet you bet your but I but I think I've got. But the ball pretty hard at white balance spending and cut that back at what would give up or that a problem. Or not gonna bring it back out in and then I'd like work but I'm. Yep that are are quite admirable that fire is about or other than you'd have a struggle not yet we botnet while yet all right and think he should demand that capacity at the Bob Hope and pray that. In. I didn't expect her to quit early here while Whitman but let up we got about why it but I think he brought. Right mostly in that Obama and about that. And John looks so nice to hear that to a Bill Polian as the finalist for next year's hall of fame class. What are the chances of they can get sent. Not pretty but I figured out who won the electors. Provide Clark judge who was actually on the committee for contributors that made him a finalist and put the arm basically they got a pretty good shot this year and there are along with Ron Wolf was finalist it was a long time. General manager of green bay Packers and I think that there is pretty good setup and among the electors that polling belongs in there with the work he did in buffalo and Carolina and Indianapolis and a I think the suspect suspect in this it is favorites so that they get that league it's 80% of the vote. Next January when they develop open I think that it looks pretty good for bill. Okay John Mark will I listen for use on top with a again Monday morning. Are you have a great day great weekend that's John Murphy mark Kelso the bills radio broadcast team from WGR Sports Radio 550.

In the studio doctor Kevin Hartman political science professor from in the college and a Republican member of the Erie county legislature and the like correct Kevin. An expectant. -- -- to be grandfather yes I was in this studio seven years ago when my granddaughter Julie was born -- it looks like my grandson Max. May be born within the hours so we're we're hopeful and keep us posted on the block it's it's wonderful congratulations -- Okay you're a politician. You -- your third term or in and I am on my third during your third or to your term yes it so that makes now we would wouldn't be cared only careful here what the future. Opponent. Label you as a career politician oh sure it sure you this -- past opponents have but it -- like three to go in and of course and -- legislature is a part time job like a lot of town councils and things like there. So if you have another career does MAQ career politician I mean obviously I would argue in my career educator and kinesis college for 25 years still going strong. And that's my career and I do politics on the side but. You know. Like I said in the last segment it's in the eye of the beholder if you're the challenger you're gonna label anyone any income as a career politician. Because career politicians sounds -- Would you agree though that being a politician. Today. Is not a service anymore it's a profession. All light I -- I don't think the two were mutually exclusive I think a good politician. It will be a public servant. And they can be professionals so that depends on the job. I mean if you're talking about a lot of part time councilman in in cold in there whatever. Or even the justice. In some of these small towns it's not you know it's not a full time job it's that what they do 24 sevenths. It is a service -- the people. On the other hand if you're talking about congressman if you agreement state legislators. Senators. You know it does that's a profession that's a full time job. Didn't used to be I mean there was a time fifty years ago when you know there were a lot of farmers still on the county area in the state legislature you know assembly and senators. They would go to Albany a few months of the year and they'd be back in time you know plant the crops. Organize your favor you favorite -- elements I do I well I do for. I have a nuanced position I do certainly for legislative positions. I think it's it's tougher to pick off an incumbent legislator. Than it is to pick off an executive and executive you know Harry Truman said the buck stops here. I mean you look at our recent county executives for instance. Mean go back to -- score ski he was defeated by jolting number. -- number after a couple terms decided not to run again I think most people think if he ran again you know. He would have been defeated. Then in came Chris Allen's well Chris -- lasted one term it's it's. You know people hold executives accountable. You know you think you're reading green budget everybody associated to Atwood told congress they don't associate that with the county legislators who let that happen. And they don't pay the price of the poll that the executive does and it's the same for governor president or you know any mayor any executive position. Eternal mystery and local offices. Not. Not I don't believe in this neck of the woods but there there are in some places in New York while mayor of New York for instance is term limited. Mayors of a number of other cities are term limited. On it's it's something that we can do today it's something we're looking into. In the county legislature I think in the not too distant future will have a term limit proposal while. But most successful one. The I think I think it has the as a great chance of passing. I've been talking to one of my colleagues on the -- legislators Ted Morton. Cheektowaga he also represents Lancaster. He ran -- that he's all fourth in and I import I think we're gonna put something in the not too distant future. I've talked to some of my Republican colleagues in the legislature in the and many of them are four. I think we'll pick up some democratic support and certainly if it goes to the voters. IE I predict that people fall for what went to limit -- well. You know that's that's the thing we we were kicking around in and you know ten years for us seems to be or at least for me seems to be the sweet spot you don't want to limit it. The two -- four years because then you've got every couple years you've got a whole new legislature is a learning curve there and you don't want to. But two rookies just like you don't want a bunch of rookies and the sabres unless you're building for three years down the road. You know you want a mix of experience and some new people -- new ideas. And I think if you and limit people one term or two terms. It's not going to be good thing and I think you know 52 year terms ten years maximum. Isn't you know is is that is that happy medium for me --
