This is NFL's Sunday on Sports Radio W yeah. Now each week one of the NFL's season in the patriots open -- -- to go live. This Brady -- dropped got a door slam. Now here's Dale Arnold -- -- -- mentioned a moment aids and if Phil Sunday own Sports Radio W media guys. Some pro Bono NFL Sunday here until about 1215 yourself Matt -- Dale Arnold here. We've already released -- -- current and Chris price there in orchard park New York patriots from the Buffalo Bills this afternoon I give you one bit of NFL news. Away from here but in the AFC east countries -- Chris mortenson is reporting on ESPN. That there was some footage earlier as the jets were warming up down at them MetLife stadium. In the background you saw after he's playing he's not even active the David to some Mark Sanchez throwing the ball left hand now. And the reason according to -- that he was throwing the ball left handed is that the jets expect. But he has at least eight partially torn labor he's off to see doctor James Andrews in Birmingham -- to get a second opinion this week. Where this gets interesting is that Sanchez said publicly. -- reportedly earlier in the week that he kind of half expects that the jets would really like to put him on IR. And give him out of their hair. And get him out of the picture. And I I wonder how how much he believes the medical report the initial diagnosis but he may have a partially torn Lieberman is now seat. Actor and yeah that's where you go to Seattle market direct -- -- for your team have the right guys -- Sort of think that that -- through. Is it gonna change the course what's going on and I get a sense of that organization is -- may have to call the goal would -- Governor good -- or otherwise. I gotta say though he'd he'd inherit not a -- Gotti he ate in like we think Allen out kick assault on Mascoll. Earned the punting position for the patriots okay. Nobody that that saw the jets play in the pre season thought Tina Smith earned the starting quarterback job now on them all and in if you were Mark Sanchez you kind of had that camp that quota of quieted some of the dollars you know at least a little bit it was back you know similar to what you've seen earlier this career the night or injured -- -- matters so. That -- go bad and -- if if they don't you know while normally watch related. Two games here in ten days have been heroic figure out and find that the minute -- a big mistake by -- -- Sanchez out there in the fourth quarter will appreciate. I mean that you get in the whole question and there are those who think that wrecks. I mean first of all -- I don't think intentionally tried to get a guy. Nobody would have predicted that. But the fact that -- even had him out there under the circumstances I think -- a lot of people who questioned -- we think or the that are that decision. The -- and feel the need to protect because I think they thought they were legal and all the way which although ironically she looks so bad earlier in that game. If -- if if the decision had been made for them based on that giants pre season game it was Sanchez who got the job. Yeah -- misery of big biblical question mark there. And then -- -- was a Brady Quinn and as a as a sort of and -- feel -- and there now that's sentences is -- -- says the number two quarterback according to -- and this is such distraction for the organization because I think they've done enough good things with the -- offering other ports of the of the roster two words you could see a step back to at least closer to 500 or maybe even. Playoff contention book because it's such a question mark of the pop. Doesn't matter if Stephen Hill makes the progression if you can't get the ball doesn't matter if you've got now healthy Santonio Holmes back potentially. Does it matter that you may be improved your running game -- -- -- on gringo and a couple of young bodies in their view while Powell and and some of the other guys it just its immediate seems like you're -- others were you really badly and it kept yourself if you don't -- -- early decisions in early developed the got. I was sitting watching the game with Matt Chatham today. What would be the game with in the game that -- looking for each shot the ball on the watch -- -- watching their middle linebacker than -- young guy from buffalo on the find out if he's. You can almost sometimes be hurt by being too quick of a guy at that position and Teddy Bruschi was the man you know so -- would. Patients at that spot -- tempo of the back you don't overreact to play action. Often a lot of those times the story is told by you by the Gordon from W hi hats -- lol at the white knuckle stuff that you see on some of the TV shows and movies. What you really don't wanna be over affected by play action you know. Take yourself out of -- overreacting to sort of a pass -- that kind of thing so. A rookie linebacker in his first game New. York it's really some pretty good bit to -- his. Crime to be taken advantage so on etc. bullets -- looking. On the other side of the patriots on defense. I I've got to what the air here pairs amateur -- and then name your batters of the right tackle for them. He's a guy that hasn't had a ton of success against New England pass rushers in the past. I'm. Beatrice and watch my eyes are going to be on him to find out if he can hold up because. We really wanna see pressure we we talk about that each and every week. But as the right tackle your gonna presume he's gonna see a lot Romney can bitch and you -- which is the guy that his release loan is rushed to sit down a PCs the back we saw react that way with. With Reggie Bush in the pre season game against Detroit. But he's also gathers a group with countermoves he will work you'll over the course of the game he's gonna have his hands full -- that you know with the -- win loss percentage thing to -- a -- or position. The goal long waste are finally out -- BJ ever gets comfortable in the pocket. If I'm looking at a at a match up on the line I am really curious to see Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly against the buffalo offensive line. If they in fact as they said earlier in the pre season intended hand CJ Spiller the ball to -- utes -- If they in fact try to do that I'll be curious to see how that interior offensive line for the bills matches up against Vincent -- it's a great point and and I forgot to mention this name this is one -- -- -- -- -- -- yesterday. Or would the center for the bills just given a four year extension. He's one of the top centers in the NFL he's a really good player. He he's one of the guys that isn't -- Vince Wilfork and one on one no one beats events one -- one but he's one now he's one of the guys that the lost and shall call for one -- it's going to be competitive and wanna want situation Mitchell. Absolutely have to to double team the -- but -- is analog success against this team in the past but it's kind of a nice little treat for for NFL football fans that like the dive in there your legacy really one of the best and -- of defense of -- -- -- -- one of the best centers on day one of the NFL season. We will not get a chance to speak again before the patriots play the jets on Thursday but yeah me an idea of what the truncated week means for the patriots they played today. Fly home today. They really can't take tomorrow off Ken and I don't put pads on which give back in after we break on the -- quickly in the event that this is a not a good game for them or to win with ugly play. You're way up -- here quickly almost on the plane on the way home they get the start on it yeah or or I've been in the situation where you fly home and -- you you you linger in the building you try to get Jimmy -- of the video got to get the stuff fired up quickly so you can get into the game film. And go to bed knowing what you did wrong so that the corrections are made often don't walk through the next morning. -- -- banged up their second -- physical what -- on Monday but generally need to get -- -- but the -- -- that -- -- on field stuff -- -- gotta correct the got to take Tuesday -- you have to have a day off in the NFL even a short week and so you really have one -- install the -- while -- -- obviously -- -- planned -- -- -- -- -- -- is coming -- -- -- -- -- advance -- they have probably -- part of the game plan already have a framework for what they wanna -- potentially and it -- -- that you have an injury situation with Mark Sanchez imagine -- they've gone into this game with more as the starter but -- definitely fuels and had a short week and had a pet or prepare for ball to her for two -- to be little more problematic but. Then the big issue -- got to get home you install quickly think of this like Thanksgiving I've played in a few post Thanksgiving games. It's really pared down a game plan you know you'll I don't want her to game plan which is a defense the offensive playbook shrinks a bit. It's especially small -- -- least in Thanksgiving were talking later in the fall. When it's early in the season your kind of slow in installation anyway it's hall and their future not gonna have expanded at that much so. Expect simple flat on both sides in my disputes through the -- the past classes about the Wilson of course the beauty is if you start the season to annul. And you have ten days before game. Quite the beauty or you're 11 in your anger about things it's more time -- -- for -- problems so I mean he can look at either way it's a big stretch to think for both -- well for the patriots especially. It's not just to -- a short amount of time it's two division games. So in the event that something goes bad in those first two weeks you'd you have a long time on the arrest of legs and those kind of conversations to correct errors because you don't group. -- we expect this to be seamless. I think to -- was very. Conceivable -- wanna know here first forgo their boy it's nice that attendee pad is going to be useful a lot of levels regardless of what happens these first two. I think I know who you'll like today tell me what you think is gonna happen. I'm going to 4741. Day both patriots eyes closer than many people I think it's competitive I just going on the road -- place I know the record historically there is is is positive but I'm remember a lot of worse I mean yes you always come on and pop generally in that place. -- it's a competitive environment. I think there're just -- in development of the number of the benchmark that we always talk about with the patriots offered in years past was thirty points on purposefully -- -- -- notch below that at least wants -- it could be closer to 24 from being little more honest it was my -- was gambling -- but I don't expect to be some offensive explosive thing it needs -- more football one game at less than a much. -- -- -- I would've normally and and for me Lester was 35 or number it was -- -- -- touchdowns it was 35 lantern normal. And then my initial instinct was to go below that as well just because of the questions on the Patriots offense run. But I think they're just as many questions on the buffalo defense after offsetting. The patriots questions all go back to 35 that was my magic number a year ago the -- I think the buffalo defense even with Mike -- installed as the defensive coordinator. Whether miss and some guys that secondary that are gonna make it really tough for them -- bad -- I mean chairs spurred out. I think that they've got problems stop stopping this from a 35. And I think they're gonna win this thing by more than two touchdowns so I'm gonna go 35. Seventeen. While -- what Coca. It's all guess -- all holiday and Rother ordered its wallet. We will -- while we won't see each other before the next game which Thursday at home so well at two games in the bank by the time we get together and accelerated talk about we'll have a lot talk about next week -- -- produces this thing we appreciate his efforts as always via.
