So pretty competitive he's so -- Mexico did not buy futures moved forward to heroin packets are the possible for the -- Brought that what's most import about the bye week is it is it getting guys recovered from the bumps and bruises or as a deliberate self scouting. But what's involved in a typical bye week. That's a little rather than. To how the so. Also a lot in play in the jumped the most so. Well you know I think that. It'll have another true. You know it's pretty great to. -- this season long your body being open to play Saturday you know he's a pretty. -- -- bullet yesterday I mean. And you guys -- Betty -- in practice but did you know he had that kind of ship penis in -- economists capability of special kickoff returns. I you're just as -- -- Thought I yelled to him before -- like burial linebacker returned it so. Stewart he found it. Turn on the bird they're so. Is it accurate today and there. I think he can opener. -- speak to. Rubber that went over the course of seasons and like has been and more injuries than normal. Was there ever any discussion amongst -- the team more than coaches in terms of you know that pictures philosophy philosophy we always hear about the next man opens or any definitive talk about that or is it just sort of happened.

Threw their arms you know whatever role there and students -- -- server. Rob what do you guys think defensively would you think that one area that you guys need to work on the moles during this this break. -- You know -- with the the server properly it. -- -- don't weaker. Well not agree that it repeat it a lot so -- -- -- work on some sort. Certain technical service to people in the scheme. That. Run you've been you've learned and you've been through for a central leadership role here too. Do you have any. Responsibility to maybe discuss with some of the younger guys what playoffs are about NFL. Well I mean that's related. To some. You know. Sit down and you know -- say the currency game more fun for just it's a one BC news loser goes home. The -- locker so you know you have to look. They have to figure them or not not that currency you know pictures but it just. Well as the stakes are so. Our -- economic stake out their -- the team picking the groceries. And you're best to market -- it pleaser. He'll make those -- so quickly that in terms -- game. Is it is your experience -- knows my experiences that that there isn't a palpable feeling MO in the locker room when the playoffs. Commenced the guys. Yo -- think your your -- they open up but that all the sudden it's the playoffs and you find a way to put up a little more defined that experience of what the patriots. We're Arctic that. You know.

You be made a great player earlier in the game the second quarter on the on the fourth that fourth and one play when Thad Lewis. Tried to sneak it into what's. What what what is the key when when you know you guys know he's going to to sneak it is there any. Tells that the -- has given you or they tell you any special way to play that based on a down and distance and situation. There of course going. -- -- -- The quarterback under center you know that it's not a -- the possibility that it uses. It'll put that there aren't production -- in our power Oprah -- so. He needs some peppers. When you're situation. You'll protect ought to be a catch an earlier -- to beat tiger on the tackle so. The pitcher and you just pinched down just kept -- York so those. Tackle those are the -- and stop the momentum and you know -- parent term problem. You know the court action were also pick holes first look the sector or are you -- Yeah always wonder why most -- wrecks don't watch Tom Brady Paul lost their quarterbacks because this seems like he has the uncanny ability. To do it a yard or more every time does were most the other quarterbacks struggle with it. But they would probably -- time you know tightening their. It's usually a quick count -- approval voters a chance for -- impeccable -- wrong so that helps you know. And to push. Yeah I think. It'll probably repellent not. It all on booking which week ago to get the ball -- -- courses are -- that's about what they're. Loves how important is good is the past Russian pressure on quarterbacks are going to be in the playoffs for yes. -- in our view or correct it'll. A couple pocket. That interchange so there -- deceptive continued to. It's a record. Robin when your world what would your. Looking at there at the playoffs. And you're looking at a team like Cincinnati. How much do you. Look at film from the game Google was earlier much earlier in the season do you take that into account or do you take more. Of their recent games into account we discovered team like that. Narnia a New York City and that you played before -- -- probably go back to some plays per year to repeat place so. You'll start game two things that there are successful. And then what so much what our regulars here that are that are doing -- and certainly differences in. The game. There are always wondered ignorant during playoff time and -- you guys are allowed to. I guess say dessert is what team out of the current teams that you guys could possibly play its Kansas City Indianapolis and Cincinnati there's no chance he played San Diego. Oh and what team. I -- -- says what team poses a is the biggest threat to -- is there a way that you can sit there -- go okay this is a team that's really playing well at this time I don't wanna play this team more. I mean honestly doesn't even matter to you guys at this point. Look honestly don't think it matters or any team. That you know we put it will play in that says it. Look at it is.
