Good to hear your voice long time no talk to -- Very good -- litigated the video of woody get into football I wanna get into. Just buddies promotion but I won -- -- at the risk of scrapie a scab. Off they wound that is healing. Have you moved past the Super Bowl loss have you put it behind I know you won't ever forget it but if you move past it and put it behind you. Well I think that's the fun part about Spartan. Negotiate processors. -- you really start looking forward at that point so. Very brawl but it's. Are you eat supper in our process and this season and we we -- question what are called then it's a top centers seasoned vet. You got those months and there we were really which do you think. About the past and you think about what you can do better here trading and then -- our practice and it's you know it's it's a different -- so. The different group of guys at different mix of -- in certain. And we got to see what we can put on the field so it's been fun get back to work and there are seeing everybody together and could get on the field and -- all -- because they're really foresee future. To move forward I think you're uncertain at this point. -- play did you lose more sleep over in the offseason or have more regret about the intentional grounding at the beginning or the inaccurate pass to Welker at the end. Well I mean I think there's. -- anytime you don't do exactly which you hope to do you bureaucratic government and you are. And you lay in bed at eight -- about every play that you could develop -- federal and so. -- an -- all. Our target it's you know a lot of plays nice game that I wish records from. We -- After the game come Wes Welker obviously very upset and appear everybody was. Wondering you know is he -- -- over the second recovered as he is he's taken too much of the blame. And then we saw arm I guess some some photographer from a distance you know on networks -- you guys hanging on the beach together. That light did you want -- on the beach we guys. Going over the place going over every bit and not missed opportunity aren't we we're not talking about it and all -- you bolts and my bad my fault -- how'd that work. How are you are what -- two people who spent a lot of time together so. You know we know each other car through you know your girlfriend wife Carol -- you because. Here they -- -- here -- -- where you know we put in you know weekly. Trivia our best and they definitely he's from the from the outside. What. So what. What we have you're prepared each week but -- an orderly. Our building there at Foxboro in concedes that kind of you know pressure and scrutiny that almost Wear -- the performed so. You know lead we just kind of you know you you go through it he talked to -- you tell you you know we support each other and you know our team has always gonna -- a job that every player or team because I think we all do have a closeness about it. You know we're concerned with you know how how people are. I don't mourning a loss -- warnings you know something that you know it's really important from their support so we. A lot of you know Mikey -- -- -- you know my best friend so. It's that's the way -- expect our troops that's the way it's always going to be. -- to talk about OTAs and we've we've seen footage of mom Peyton Manning trying to get accustomed to his new wide receivers out in Denver you'll have a lot of their -- some of that. A stall worth coming back you can -- coming back Brandon Lloyd in particular -- just a little bit about that process and trying to figure out. You know what he does best where he once the ball and and that's sort of adjustment that a quarterback and wide receiver like break the law would have to be on the same page. Yeah and on and fortunately not very familiar with Tarvaris Dante bright and and you know -- an -- district here so. He's really a professional as well I mean he knows how to prepare himself and he's here our offense so you know. You know as a at least familiar with the paperwork you're and so. It's it's fun to work early and perhaps their law we I try to practice is to go. You know hopefully we make progress certainly did it open to what were on the field -- communicate and talk -- in the film world. -- -- stuff on the game field that. Think Dicey things that I expect the increase fees and it either that he expects so ultimately you have this game as a participation. And figured -- on the same page with your receivers or backs are up and like you can ever just in the history new reactor a slow. So I don't need to be more slow birdie from. They're also -- figure out ways to participate battery -- that's part of that process. You know an off season you know things that you see that you need to make improvements from because. If you don't you all be art and Eric order also dating Greg -- got -- to gain ground as well. I assume you pulled some strings and had them cut Anthony Gonzales before you showed up -- in one and Ohio State receiver out there. But new guys Steve how long does that take Q. To feel it and the believe that they will be on they will be able to grasp the offense they'll be able to do what you need done that they'll be able to make the adjustments and and and and and understand the complexities in the new wants of your office is gonna is that like a week a month. How Long Will it take you say in the case of Brandon Lloyd. -- believed to -- that the feel like he is going to be able to do the joke. I think it's it's different with the current players are. You know I think -- There's a lot of things are going to troops are being good players actually RT art. Could go to court -- this you know it it's not an easy program that you run and -- -- some -- comparable thirteen then maybe you're not really held accountable a daily basis let you know coach Belichick keys. You know it it's -- ordered completion comedy here and I think -- of the teens come and they go a little extra Laporte -- you know if you want more of the bridge. Biodiesel so far -- he just trying to keep the pressure on 'cause he wrote you feel -- The way to get the most out of it so. You know I think you'd tell relatively early by the way -- -- response to that paper coaching. You know you can look at our good -- and feel confident culpable here and what you're asking him to do. Astronaut in Ottawa complicated security that it means that there he got this. Expressionless face like oh god -- I would play -- -- alert to go you know how to do it critical. Number am I going to be able to do what are the coaches are committed itself. Here -- some guys you know right away from guys take in a couple -- Obviously can't take forever and we're all. -- other performance based business you're gonna feel performing an opportunity -- reveal -- so. -- -- -- It just. You know I think that you're gonna have to Richard seasons and -- you're -- -- -- the -- strictly on the Fortier senior and -- the future -- to play. I mean you're gonna you're after establish your own role for yourself but if you don't hear -- -- goodness there's certain law. -- I guess the development of a quarterback and a quarterback any wide receiver similar to that of an actor you have sort of your rookie year it's Saturday Night Live and you get through it you do okay people look at -- there's some potential. And you churn out this three minute 52 video on Funny or Die yesterday for under armour it seems like you are raised your game a little bit in the acting business would you agree. Well it did actually. Yes and it's not like. You know top exit counselor had accomplished that grammatical or mistreatment in the east. It wouldn't do it it was fighting in right its interest England when you work for people for years secretary you know we try to -- You know what -- -- what they were after needed it right I thought it could be pretty good and and you're out there are some funny. Some funny parts of that -- that you know maybe -- -- -- from hero stuff but I was last and pretty much the old days after the October to get pit board not much -- failure rootkit. Yeah -- you know -- you know this is gonna lead to another invite invite from Saturday Night Live would you consider doing that again. Yeah well I would -- and I would -- I hope that would be fun to do we get at some point if I had the opportunity because. Other great experience site.

It something's in the offseason turn out great like this under -- video then there's the foal -- was that your idea or PD Suisse is idea. I have. I get a lot of reform and they did I ever -- I guess part of the I don't take this seriously. You know it's just. I don't know it would -- that bad that. You know as an -- -- are they actually. Leadership ruined my air show when they are like well I'll say that I might -- that my people could you know you ship away your chance to hear these cabinet. Richard at certain you're okay cool Lavinia. -- -- -- -- some other so. It was a and I hope you and Jerry like the -- most of. Well are are afraid -- our mutual friend. Describe the situation in the context of the event where everybody is trying to outdo the others with this sort of outrageous kind of looked in the stubble in the hair -- -- Lady Gaga kind of outrageousness and he said the to have you sort of got caught up -- that so let's go with it is that about right. Well I mean is it it's it's you know especially for the better and so. You know if you're reduced subset of the a couple of different talks are different outfitter -- there they go right to do American it you know Goodyear. You know here here. You have some other -- you know to what -- that so you could figure out if it's one night. -- -- -- -- -- I hope we're not trying to please too many people blog by a lifelike as a mom like school and they like to.

Maybe at the rehearsal dinner the quarterbacks audible should be a two a two part audible stay in a nearby hotel guys and get a car service tomorrow night does that make sense. I think that's a great idea that there -- What are you get no easy like registered at -- catalogs I that we get a thugs under arm around the settlement. -- -- and some some. From. The videos that the fighters died after that that advocate the. We saw you written courtside at the lakers game. This curious what what prescription is the problems last us a. I think they're strong.

Our district to support him the first and then an you know we're we're all in this business and to top businessmen. Know yours so the best so I don't I don't know what's gonna have and I I certainly. I'd love was so low that bear fruit on the -- and so. On but you know none of those things directly to me.
