So great job trying to do trying to put it altogether especially -- the -- -- you know having more focus on what they needed to do. I think the team responded -- joke together all three series of the game. And you know there's no telling where this -- may go. Let me ask you this from as a former offensive lineman. You Steve Ballmer go down you see Americans go down cannon and Thomas stepped in and except for that first play of the game doesn't seem to be. Much lost that all you impressed the way. -- is rally -- offensive line play some great football right now. -- Taylor are unsung heroes marvelous. Earlier I think I got -- in 2000 the last twelve years and then got -- Scarnecchia. You know I'm culprit of the streets of you know our program disarmament nursing -- days later so. And myself being. Mayor of learning all the system these young kids stepped in and how he prepares. It's been reading assistant sordid history it's amazing -- And work and dedication to their hatred of the whole organization. From what you observed truck out of line and he's definitely look like Europe and better things possible. At heart -- at the so it is preparation in the guys ready to. To Logan goes down Thomas has stepped in as it. If they didn't they can't miss a beat him if he can be nervous should be able to. Be ready to go and understand what's called B -- Of all time hasn't worked -- as laundry got a great job. I'm not handling the -- want to give. Joseph we're the other day Lenny Clarke resigned Dennis and Callahan he said down -- -- are right he says honesty that this guy is funny is and he's got a great sense of humor and of course we have not privy. To any of that in math -- and what his post game press conference as the knee slapper is bright. -- -- -- you play with the Packers I believe but the jets and the patriots. What separates. Ballot check from a lot a lot of these coaches who common goal what what quality does he have. -- everybody. Is always on the same page the patriot way. Well irreverent Packard were my call government and veto -- bill that went -- Cleveland's Romeo and finish my career. Oak -- has a different you know no ending term he. Perceives himself you know he's not endure the same -- -- -- -- that you -- you -- that are. You know you can't say it did you get out of media. And he's got a you know how lucky behind closed doors and he does smiled in those. They'll have that. Find more indoor where -- the players and coaches where where he stands. And what he -- least you know recorders from everybody. Everybody doing their job and don't worry about other people have to worry about yourself and doing the best you can on each play. For the players and you know even coaching staff. So what he requires them everything you know everything that comes along with her -- a daily basis. Is -- truly. What he learned over the years you know something here where he grew up from what -- equipment. There is. Being. Though coach for many years learning from one of the best you know put that towards other. People. Give -- priority on the same page understand the need to be done. And doing it you know you shouldn't called the patriot way it usually. Is a way it has been working for twelve years and if he. I don't even this year and stared at these players whether it's a free agent or draft pick. To form this team. To understand what they have here at the value of joining veterans like Tom Brady Vince -- for Jerod Mayo Wes Welker. You're joining this team. Was some how much players. Went nowhere and you know what those guys. Didn't have it right away. They work hurt me understand what it takes week in week out there have been so. You know had agreement sending them how to put the right and then to put the puzzle together on the. Is he feared -- general. Geared feared by other play you a Machiavellian mindset that it beefy abort it would rather be feared while lobbed. Is he feared to to a point like put that -- Yet these guys to line up right when you read about some of the other stuff going on in the -- with some of these other place is you don't seem to have that same problem man. I think. Every coach I mean my throughout my career and college -- You're your own sphere you coaches. And beauty -- smile and joke around them and uncertain times. But if you if you let's open the game you're you know what -- this to the same sideline that they're on the -- -- -- Any coach and they deserve a whole aspect of the whole year issue but I think overall. -- Expect the best from his orders and understands that mistakes do happen.
