I'm sure playing for the entire game was a point of emphasis but how about negative -- I care about the last time I saw. A team play. And you come up with fifteen negative plays for the games that's something that you talked about or it just kind of happened organically. -- -- -- please come from home or bar hustled into a ball all just want you know and we had their minds it. We notice you you know these bags and the quarterback most -- bring down. You can do is caramel one -- to be an open field or. In invective and respect for him to make it -- -- bears good runners order so. I want our fans were giving more people total ball.

And he could not open one and wants Biden be. On the opposite side of the field its terms on me just you just have an old little boy he's very Smart when it's all about playing football and that's something I don't think -- can teach. Are paying. You know. That's justice -- and he's been right there and that was seen in the -- who went from what I hear he was right there in our schools so. You can't he step down he was ball one day Q he's a special special player and workers there are seen firsthand. -- encouragement would work at the time. But in the how greedy wasn't to America are here next season. And -- mean and it's amazing what you do where. You talk about. The hard work in the film study and all that. The -- and you use leave that that's the difference between a great talent and great player actually pretty much have -- a pretty much some PC from all the reporters -- Absolutely I mean. Won't say I don't wanna be good and no one wants is great I mean right now. Good won't get the job done right now appointment.

It won't work now because trust me it's about cigars -- out there. This ticket they're here to hold of a low. Point in the outfield I mean. There's just there's there's there's just waited so. We wants is great you know and any distorted last week would would have would have great week of practice in -- telling. You can say what you wanna -- -- In the practice and and what what Ontario mom witness when you have great practices. In these two great Gregory still form field when you don't. We can always terms favorable right in the -- at the same exact place and -- situation we screwed up to practice -- afternoon again or vice Versa. We had is an and we did it got this look we hit it. Come to the game we have the same Lou boom here that make the difference in doing so. Every little thing -- -- but you have to make sort of the little -- -- choose -- -- is that the correct mention the best estimate expect. He talked about Denver in the big challenges eliminating the big plays which they got against Pittsburgh. You look at the Baltimore Ravens team you're playing this week though there was one big player remember two years ago 85 yards for rice. On the whole their team that methodically just control the ball and moved on the field. For you guys than this week how different is that challenge in that you've got to make some stops this absolutely. Defense we've we've just where to we notice -- this is a physical group first of -- and wanna play physical. And only achieve things. If they if they can sit back and run ball fifty times they've targeted to what if you can't start so. They're not hurt and interpreted to mean I mean they don't want a deeper. And archery team in the environment -- really good football. Have a great spurs and great defense. And aggressive offensively in -- have -- that there and have an office arm where. They good at what they do point blank so for us to beat these as we want to be when -- get. We wanna have to come with some big stops. We want to be able to come and they that the please who want to be with some Greek colonels. Because there's type -- team there you know when was that keep the change who they're OK okay if they keep keep concerns -- actually keep your to absolutely so. We would -- -- real good job defensively. And on and off the field and we can do it we we have been it's and so a plan when we won't. That you are so much yesterday yes Washington -- there what what what you think did you did you get the sense. Even though they scored seventeen early and had three for the rest of the games like 45 minutes 46 ministry points that you get the sense that okay. They do whatever it takes to pull this one out what did you think. The Texans had to come back and. You go away and look at it and and -- -- surges. It's old years is looking in different games you plan on. We noticed and they have been on a flight to the death of Arnold cure what the score you don't care what can happen to a course of long was -- his minutes on the clock there won't fight. Do you do if you're noting the -- fight they would not do what they unit for the moment also. You have to be willing to go to law would have even if this -- -- Because they're going to be re so. I just knew it in the game that they weigh -- on the Tivo. And from the looks of -- used to wasn't in the devote so you have two good football of the frisbee football team. You have offices that do what they do whale. Controlled Clark run foot law. You just soon basically -- smash -- game from bulls are you know. So that's what we wanna do you want to let you know when have to make adjustments on the silent as we have to book animals or. -- -- -- -- -- -- From from phone first so we wanted to go out to a sampling hidden from the first play and hopefully tomorrow with the those two different style offenses. He carried over whatever momentum in my game -- from the previous game into this that game against Baltimore defense or are. -- thing we care because reclusive. It forces started practice start about a week in practice. Started to Begin week of this you know last week. -- and again and then when you when you prepare way you practice where. When you require electors are aimed right at the same means. You have agreed to. And are -- with with with that going now and I've seen recently. Seeing how we can we would -- it seems to -- -- for -- round this year. Which in the way we came out the best and if this when we need. Beautiful ball to step up there and when when when when his term to know we stepped up this week so. We can't take a step backwards we definitely we let -- before we can status. We don't we definitely have to move for what are are really that we could take a lot of reggae from Denver. And membrane that is the -- what we've what we've done that week bring it to this week also because we always see what I can do for. Does that take any of the pressure of the fact that so much people of the talking about the last couple years that you can't get by that first playoff game now you went. Does that take any of the pressure we don't -- room or -- -- if you know and you know just like you know you insert its very term. You know we don't gore talk about the years we want soap bubbles these so. You know we really don't don't look at it like there we look at each year is different here.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
