Just sort of just been hanging out a -- people -- speculating lots of things body and feel. Our pilots and that there are little thicker. You know this is Patrick -- -- record at double got so. What that's what's important. At this point -- you've been through a lot of these to get to this pre season you guys have a big stretch you're gonna play a whole week of practice. And then three games in ten days weird schedule how important -- is a week like this week before you wrap up for the final. Three pre season games over the course at ten days. Right what this week this probably our most important week here you know I think how -- -- things and I'll stop that we got that peninsula in America offers you its first day.

You know his round here of people attacked the Bill Belichick democratic you know exactly get all the information that you put -- -- -- Dion you're well aware that. So Lisa speculate -- -- Brian Waters you know older guy just taken some time off me will be back hopefully that's the that's the perception of it and maybe similar with you got it's been around a long time has played a lot of football and just for the first few weeks just sort of take it easy was it more to do with that -- was there's some serious that you just through as far as injuries -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And hagel and everybody got to run with it a medical and very -- -- figures out who has the pit that's what we have to do. There's no complaints I mean here I am. Always going to be a little while and it's it was also while sales -- trying to get a little work in on the side as well let. You know it -- about chicken in the gap that yogurt in it so that there. You're receiver -- is being talked about a lot last year the honest is Chad Ochocinco Chad Johnson was in the house this year it's because it's all these guys that that Thomas familiar with not just a couple of guys know the offense but down the whole roster. Guys who know this offense in the terminology. What is that what is that -- like working with there a group of receivers that is already very familiar with what you're trying to do was a group. It's great on the great he's -- -- and in the media world senate where they are you're -- -- -- world and help.

They're crowd it is good though it is crowded you know it is called the former alternate route and and -- will do are you all. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know in a way that they're -- -- there it is you don't know. Are you you said maybe jokingly it's probable what does that mean for you in terms of -- I know that you've told us last year the reps are important get on that same page where -- where you know the -- and so. Maybe not a hard but when there's a lot of receivers all try to get. Those repetitions in practice does it make it more important to make those reps county put more pressure on yourself on. Not -- source earnest little first Saint Paul La tech event that are worried that you -- what you air. And in Dakota took great doubles. In rep mark all of us and Xstrata you're not wearing. And then get involved with off and now -- about a second he's not particularly. What -- in the orient right. All football you play entry there -- a lot of white shoes at different talents yourself and always look in and and try to Figueroa what makes this guy great in this and that -- are great in that you look at Brandon Lloyd for an awful lot about the way he goes up and fights for the football what have you seen from him. So far can't. Our you know Latin means to be learned -- -- -- been -- branding what if there are. Watch them on me credit with pitching change. You know and most important. He's proven that hey you know and that's what area port actually. You know -- straight game overall here is about. -- taken in order political -- and you can crop in their say in this where -- awful if you don't you don't bring up.

Protestant majority that -- that a lot of Datsyuk and in a lot of worse. And then so Logan and out of -- actually bad. -- banged up so that it is -- -- our policy there worker partner on air and get back and looked awfully. Or sure offseason like -- preparing for this year you do that you know Josh was going to be here in the things might look a little bit different is the a lot of competition. Did you approach the offseason -- any differently because of that. No sir you have to play tomorrow here where are our. I do have to do to give up equity.
