Game watching east is about. My album but 1213 hours worth more this weekend -- hours did you watch until. There -- some big gains. Probably most all of so that there's a lot of different plug it could sit around a lot to -- -- and -- to think about. Some of the situation that you see that he can. You know cook it yourself about my remote. You know you never know the opportunities going to be a one player at this time a year. Could make or break -- and so. -- -- -- -- -- go into play yesterday and seen that -- at all that there are -- you're looking at this weekend are going to be. Awfully good exciting. What jumped W and that comeback from Indianapolis. Well today. They kind of got to go a little -- -- there but it. You know make it to them they dug their way out of it even in that situation we've been out and -- -- really played. Great. At any point in the game that let me get you got some metal that according to go. Click -- -- -- score a lot of points on offense. That you typically require the decent -- a year and Robert they're so. But it -- there's -- -- can't be played -- here without being cricket teams so and we were last week. To improve our local scene that you're gonna need to be at our best -- on sorry and I. Yeah I know you worked on all three teams last week Tom was it even. In the free the amount -- an investor and Altria did you spend less time on the Bengals. Because you played him already or more time on the Bengals 'cause they were heavily favored. Well Tripoli -- got a lot -- marked out and try to evaluate what we'd done all we can do better so. I think doubt the most important game with a last week was the coaches spent a lot of really identify what we needed to do better in the that the places where we were. It's been really deficient. I'll go really over the course of postseason so. We figured we could make some improvements and didn't do better than what we've done that and you know it could help put out this week -- -- -- -- That's the world our focus was and we got a lot of work against each other. So assist -- the competitive weekend. It suited my game and yet there we we knew when the colts and Hillary is the countdown really begins felt it's been. You know it's getting ready and do everything we now folks -- -- attention on it. The colts are what they knew what they presented. And that they're really good football team we knew we need to play really well. You know most of us Tomlin is 3810. Colts -- down with -- and it's over. Just it's just too big a deficit to come back from but we were just talking and -- after he watched the game -- Bill Polian. And Bill Polian said this is the worst thing for Kansas City. Because so in Indianapolis will open it up -- -- no huddle they'll Gloria they'll let Andrew Luck the Andrew Luck. And it turns out he was right -- they they went to that. They spread it out and went quick and they came back and they once did do you what do you think and you'd you know this game better than any of us when it's 3810. You think -- -- coming back. I don't necessarily think they like I hate it when you're down 38 it's 48 points and right now. You can't make any more mistakes. Because you know one player -- the other team -- basically over we've been in that situation where. It will acquire a lot of a lot of improbable things can happen in order to winning games so. A kid sitting etiquette that and it didn't make the most support it but they add that. Upbeat and you know for the cyclical. You know we got to do everything we can't it is. To make the placement a board game. There's been no lead at this point that. That faith that that -- -- you could you. In particular order better defense that we don't beat themselves. Another could be at 28 point like they where minutes. You can you do that you were doing in order. To keep score point -- -- isn't it. That's that the Central London we went down came to bat well and I didn't really helped lead to build and build a lead. But there's no action and Internet and it will play out there's certain resale well we were just brought that you've got to keep. You keep the medal of -- and played in all like like India and -- take -- that momentum and not part of the opposite that it it takes a big effort from. People thinking. To really get the moment and go back literally bit difficult politically game they did what they needed to win and that's what it there. You played Indianapolis last year that you let blew them out it was 5924. Two game Murkowski got her luck struggled -- game obviously he's gotten better this year. -- -- come back the other day when you see when you when you watch Lucknow. Great -- that not worried about you know opposing quarterbacks -- not big about defense for what I need to do you know hopefully get there and so. I don't want want an -- in the offense. An element and nor will like this week upbeat poppy folks on the defense -- what. We need to do a portrait that Mike got bitten. It like that at all start -- You know Robert outfits -- -- PM you know the decent player of the year. Basically you're making that -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We got to be able. Slow him down and it would have been. Repeat offense like we did you gotta run and awards though got a little bit so. But -- couldn't electronic equipment that we didn't we know that so. We got to put everything at the big click here. Was Mathis always this good and he was just lost in a Dwight Freeney shadow world housing managed to have this big year at this point in his career. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pretty the other but they still -- -- is basically and every now and yeah he did he get the antigen and not know the flow through meaning that you know what you a category. -- also. What he gets good quarterback it's not like that nobody pushed -- all of them. The coverage that it would be really dangerous south. He has got explosive move these powerful. Want to get it on the tackle I mean he he -- -- so. It was the biggest playmaker -- got. You know that this year political play for a while Butler expect it'll eat bought date David before we play it by. Outlook and he put it gets you're pretty quickly here. They get clobbered it's one of the -- -- the fate either leaks so it's a good second they get a -- -- Super athletic linebacker. So it's it's a really well well he. We're talking about this earlier I. It seemed like you watch love the games -- this week in the sense that seems like every two or three minutes there was a stop in the game some of the got dragged off the others caution during the or somebody watch these games what's really great. Advertise and are great endorsement for the bye week I mean watching that B. That extra week off must -- so much right now if Kansas City at one with -- have enough players left to play you guys. I know -- -- clay is and that's. He'll come out and -- I don't know why. You know that happens sometimes what you write there was a lot of players being dropped off the field where the Green Bay game last night. There -- a bunch. Goes from Cutler lost than mere in in the charter itself. It -- -- the nature of the game it's a physical sport so. You know the more you can prepare yourself to deal with a technicality of the game and then. It would about that not secure about look at lot of undertaken an injury now. Analog outlaw. You know and -- game literary so. It's just part of the nature of the game he got -- got on the -- -- that -- can still -- -- -- They've got to do their job to do well enough to earn a playoff victory. Do you think god Tom the the position to quarterback has changed since you've been in the league because. We discussed this earlier Billy O'Brien in his introductory press -- when in this long description of what it takes to play quarterback in the league innings talking about. -- great team made a hard worker up for a great practice player a guy that strives proposed for perfection. He wasn't mentioned and you know sizes arm strength or any of that physical ability. You just talk about the intangibles that I guess guys like you and Peyton Manning and Drew Brees and and Edward luck have is it easier just more to the position now than there was when you started. To be questioned. I'm not really sure. I think I thought it differently executed not ultimately you're trying to move your seat on the field and score points so. The other a lot of intangible things are going to play in the position in leadership of the big part of traditional -- but so is -- important part of the job. It's certainly -- A lot a lot of leadership how -- play well so you gotta be accountable pre. On -- out in and you gotta be accountable practice she got to be accountable. Future teammate Paul what are they got a few do the right -- be released at the teller a note we've of the quarter Beckett you don't do -- in the -- take your teammates couldn't do it's got into it quite figured unit at a price and this again where you gotta put in advance that does not. -- you can't. You got to it before you. Before you whip Dick -- -- vehicle in the game and hadn't. Not really put anything into everything that you don't -- as dictated a -- So. You get out -- -- put into it and you -- and that's probably all you. Dispute that we look a lot of diversity of the ticket -- -- -- like Kurt Warner eighteen slept. -- -- You know if you like great pizza position but like every -- we got we put -- work and I think that's been a big thing that we talked about over the last week and that's what we shall I didn't better because we needed to make improvements that we could be our best this week. Did it was Billy O'Brien. One of those guys that you kind of knew was head in this direction that would be a head coach in the league at some point do you expect him. To -- succeed down there. It. Look well -- that preacher that thought about that much -- -- Putin. Doing what you know accused in these new and it's certainly Billy is and I you know I love being with -- -- -- -- You know at the pocketbook Stanford coaching -- I'd -- relationship with Philly and it's still continued all through for him. Coordinates in it with a group of state but I hit. You know what I did you city. You to competitions so. That -- -- go to him well. -- Peter King writes this morning that Josh McDaniels in -- -- in Cleveland went quite well I know you're busy with other things but. Seems to me your guys in ninety you do you do a fine job of helping these guys move ahead in the game moving head -- and India in the business. Well I think it's -- a credit to those guys and what state. And certainly you -- sure that any interview which doctor gonna go well because it's got to economic coach. -- that some weeks so. I can -- you always go well what people would be impressed with them because. -- -- an impressive person and his knowledge of the game took offense defense and football really what he's brought so Martinez. You know really -- self. Actually I -- Alabama OP doesn't go anywhere so that's. You know I let him know that -- and -- I'm up for the QB question that we brought you by crescent. Credit union -- -- is now serving Boston province and beyond is a classic and you dot org to -- -- experienced a great feeling better banking. Press a credit dot or were trying to get this on the last program will be played at Pebble Beach term a couple of times you have an actual handicap the -- enough the other handicap. You don't see here but I think -- -- but it -- and it's and if you go out because he doesn't -- that I know treat times so. Michael in pretty much sucks at this point yeah a lot of fun going out there though because no. More beautiful plates in the world and so it's actually I'd like got the jets play at -- one here. Which was really fun and I love you know go out there so we put a check -- out there bunch well.
