If you're gonna make sure it's patriots Monday it's time for a weekly get together was -- since Wilfork sponsored by Toyota. National they don't they felt. I'm going great knowledge and a terrific nice Thanksgiving Phillies game on Thursday. It that was the -- -- that's true put fireman Ed out of business she should all be ashamed desire two tie certain. Whose equipment -- -- and -- -- to our other jets fans are going to be able spoke GPS on the Roman like. About the importance of fair the -- and before you -- through more in new Sanchez and his face got locked up with more zest. It's been played a million times since Thursday night. Because it is so funny obviously you did not know was going on you were on the other end of it causing the whole thing but -- -- ever seen anything. Like then how hard you push -- I don't think ever seen anything like bush and president friend that we just talked a fight press to a person. Policies seen sensors go that way. I would just trying to minimize the -- And an -- -- doing so artist must push Marcello and happened and made their place so -- turndown you know great for us. And I. -- like it or just another in steeply through this quarter touchdown defense league. -- praised him score points on defense and that's their barrels a big bonus wars and in what 53 -- we have wavering some type of you know points that's just amazing. You'll see them play. For the next ten years old played over and over again at every turn things go bad for the jets are they will throw -- -- he -- And you'll see when you're tired you'll be seeing that video off all else I'm glad someone -- good size and automatically that -- Now -- -- we asked you last week but the difficult part was what was tougher mentally or physically get ready for these games that you mentally just telling yourself that. And two games a five -- it doesn't matter your mind over matter. How did that play out on Thursday what was some of -- challenges you have to deal with just getting mentally -- -- to play this game well up very. You're it was all men we know as football players you have to be able to alternative physical especially the way there that we built. I think there was almost a given you know because we you know last week we played elsewhere in practice. And I always say there was no you know you're going into plan two days -- in the week or so attendees whenever laws. Plan to gangs. Are back to back. And he knew you just have to say you have to fight through whatever and you know happiness and -- that -- So to make a -- respect for the other team in the please put it was in the same character wouldn't lose it. It was coming -- from a Sunday game in hand -- there's agreement. But that's who we have to go on a roll. Thanksgiving Day problem last game so this to -- now sit around all all day waiting to play a general prince didn't. Arms so mentally you have to try to block out everything and just focus on testing and that was in print football divisions and and -- our guards unreal that good job you know pray eternal may be placed. Many many key stops on me in certain situations. There was -- part of so. In -- updates given night a lot easier you know to go home or fly home partners unanimously to be the -- family for the weekend. Made a lot more and you know special. Force you talked about in the turnovers and this team's been very good. This defense has sort of this year. But they've been they haven't been the flu turnovers they've been beat here especially against the jets these were. So hard hitting turnovers. Is that something that can be contagious is the right were put. Something that you give our role with him and be able -- -- -- -- is knowing that your you've got a routine your defense's ability to someone that I think. After you've given his own. If Arizona is. You know make you negative plays and making you know big plays after one another word sacks or tackles for losses or turtles. Operate. You know you get in the frenzy. And his defense we've been you know we've been in that. All year you know on the terms we struggle with you know getting the ball we have problems because. This is our defense that's one thing that we were -- -- her hard opponent -- practice is is creating turnovers. -- school. So he wants want com. You automatically get the feeling there a moment ago and has not been all interceptions or has not been all strips that you know is estimating guys actually. Lamb had more people in and call from a ball so that's you know going out being physical and taken the ball away and have to invest most impressive thing. Com when we sit back and look at all our eternal was that that -- are the most satisfying. Feeling when used you know see guys hitting people in the ballpark now because. We know what type of defense -- physical defense we wanna play that -- so. We know that the more we can keep our office on the field -- positive for us because they -- to a real good jobs won't poison and you know -- those internals and two touchdowns and or points. In his game you have to be -- school point so. We -- -- from here on out you know we have to play. Who should -- -- do we count them. And we have a pair of this football -- -- The pattern seems the same -- Michael are -- talking about this earlier last two seasons you guys run the table in the second half of the season. You've done that to this point so far and we get we look back at the beginning of the season where should -- -- talking about you guys upright talking about it. Got a hole here got -- that the problem here. Why is it that this team always seems to get better. In the second half of the season and yet we look at some other teams right now that a lot of people thought we're going to be superb teams head and shoulders above everybody else I -- started -- the warts and most teams. And they're coming down on the little bit. You know you have to believe of one another best personal very. That more trust and faith do you have in your teammates and coaches. And the more you just believe. That you can get bitter and in his plays down there that we can make. The bitter you be in now we see them all year. We're playing consistent football we'll go out with a do you listen please stay. Can change to game one you know change. Internal situation or whatever it may be. You you see those things so you have to be able to get -- And we've done a great job and we've we've come in each week. Things we try to get better we put a La -- I mean. And we move forward we don't we don't spend a lot of time worn in a bastion wanna know about you know certain plays that we do you know we didn't do. We just you know Communists say hey these are the plays we need to do better -- this is what we're going to give her. And I was you have the team. On the stand there and everybody on the same page you will have a better football team for a walk so and we've done a great job. On all year with there and it can't stop -- won't stop now because. No deal won't ever happen the guys has been around won't that happened the younger guys who start to see how would do things you do start to believe. -- -- -- Don't you believe there always -- chase. And we've given ourselves pretty good chance and complaining presidential. This is just belief in Europe and the faith factor and -- being they would get better believe he can do. You you talk about your defense. Getting better what exactly does your defense have to do get. Where you want to be just be more consistent. In the run game and the -- -- third down gain greater area. -- little Google's book -- in the situation football you know. On a stand situation and execute the whales in an account which has been consistent we have. It doesn't matter what we call because in -- then we call we believe that we have the players and we are skiing can make that happen so. We just have to just tighten up a few -- And -- just be consisted. And -- that we've done and sometimes we we've. We've been on the rights are moving wrong -- is be able to finish games to play games sixty minutes or however long it takes to play games. Com and this is to talk football team we have a very tough. Our football team mentally and physically was it tough doing that in that game Thursday night. You're -- huge is the first quarter wasn't talking I don't know because America series when you play in division during. You you always. Special division. -- -- -- Continue to do. I mean we knew that we had -- was that the game was point. But this internal some things that we restored that we thought we can do be Derek and there was two run game -- villages. Minimizing gaps -- tackle them better so we knew. I'm dead at any given inning give a plea there you know taking guilty -- so we just had to keep telling myself. Just play more consistent -- one of them. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We we can make it tough for opponents we we have to do. You've got hurt events talk about his dad many times as a matter of fact his dad is the reasoning with them for 75. David Wolf were educated on.
