Let's give us an example of another one another Google. We're. Regular life and it's only tell us. Just -- to bring its operative Flacco said you would never heavily detainment was on a descent. Couldn't pick a date for doctor -- but we are going to each other for. He's telling my far -- are always seems -- -- -- anonymous. Calls from opposing quarterbacks that are talking about it. But you know what yeah that is right did you you know I care what committee you're dead but. I mean that's Flacco is docket so much traction. Yeah I saw in the senate dues like. Farming school and say in the nick of it was a funny name. It's just for stuff I first time first -- -- -- the schedule got lost -- didn't do much statistically but this time. You're going against Michael or have it will what do you know about Michael other than blind side. You know absurd. That -- you know glorious term. You know pretty much all ain't so. You know their song. History of the server and you know last last game we play this year are. So which starts ordinary game in order against them a little bit sort virtually on guard against simply -- -- -- -- policy. You know -- where is. -- other guys but you. Trash talk with what Michael -- and make fun of them because of the movie and he's the most famous. I don't I'm -- -- sir I don't talk. A month -- -- You know make. Make plays you know tomorrow's performance hybrids like like speech were so. You know that's so -- -- There on the field. You're always there's always going to be a player here -- there you get. Our current bush you know our story goes it's going at guys that are in number for both players -- also I don't wanna. Talked to anybody and and they used on the me in the they're able to come back at me you know. There which lawless. Michael -- -- great things about you but -- -- He has no respect I I hate to keep bringing it up like -- dad but I Joseph -- so much different. It's lovely at the web you -- They've robbed the more the more success you have on the football field. Does that make as you raise the bar where your game is in in the contribution Jamaican this football team we talked about it at the outset you leave the team in sacks with eight. Forced fumbles five fumble recovered with four. Do you and your teammates expect that level play all the time or because you were playing well is more now expected -- you -- that wraps. You know all week one week to week three. But there are coming down. And governor making place. There are consistent basis. On they're expected to do those things are consistent basis so. Long -- -- -- that the bother me at all. I've been able to vote you know consistently. You know make plays. And toes. You know first Eric Roberts or activists in hopes for more opportunity in our confidence. You know more so then. My teammates and coaches revenue. -- that I even more profit to broker -- well.

An honor to be compared to them but again you know it's so that a lot more to do to welcome quote. -- final question rob just between the four of us. Is there a play in the patriot label that has Rob Ninkovich lining up like Vrabel did and catching a pass is a tight end because you did -- Until the orbit aren't -- are does that play exist I guess I don't know why have I have a question. We have a lot of tie it and I mean I think -- credit situation that would differ from the very lows here to do it. -- -- in the past. That's where that we surgical -- -- sure. I have a question -- when you're in college did you ultimately -- for an huh huh huh. Oreo. -- lets it -- it's not as it is -- surprise you that the Notre Dame guy Matt Light and the Pentagon says it you know.
