I have a little well I have -- approved a new and it's edited out. I can complete -- Interesting next thanks Friday over Lord & Taylor it will be a Jerod Mayo and -- and holly. You're just a couple of happy shoppers were not a CB Jerod Mayo on the grass and work work in the -- at the -- are working the -- for Christmas you know your Hotmail headliner. I step for our weekly get together with your odds brought -- you -- -- -- and sausages and Adams Boston -- and Austin lasers. We do it and -- on. -- -- -- -- -- Yeah this is -- No I don't I'm not -- problem I have a question for that this isn't that Obama can't business although that's not fair. No tweet tweet you whatever it. If -- going to school integration. And at all by -- -- that the same and asking for a -- me. I'm not -- random but it does it bother. You mean is there a difference between buffalo and abolish them yeah I believe terrorists yes leaders yeah. Now exactly what is the -- -- to -- errors like them about bison bison is actually very good for you is leaner. It's your car is very clear winner is very inadvertently. It. Buffalo meat I don't think so I don't think it's -- thing. Buffalo -- are so there's no vaccines that's -- to -- -- this wedded to a store. You asked for buffalo meat an and look at you like you had four hits. I'm. -- -- -- -- you know -- -- -- and I asked the question it is an end and it is as quick on the middle. My certificate. 50%. Tonight wouldn't ordinarily we -- we're getting there and we've we've -- -- with Google isn't ready you ready for it is. Don't go don't go low -- -- -- went -- while -- say. Are they get you know you might go that whatever you want at -- almost. A group they're ordered. Wikipedia says bison is what got you got. Well -- -- -- what that's about it that that that that doesn't settle anything here's your answer. Question what is the difference between buffalo bison as answer. The difference between bison to buffalo is nothing -- a whole lot depending on what you mean. Was that. What's that mean other candidates or reject it as an answer we get out Foxboro it is what it is you know. Odd. So I believe there is a a difference. A deal. Not certain non non non about it -- to put a ball on the ground and. On what's the difference between Al Sharpton and I was like that result. So you know let's let's go back before dot org the dolphins go back for seconds and they will go forward to the dolphins. Playing that game now that god you've done it. -- you get you've played a couple of games but a couple of games in five days. And use scored a bunch of points and and that they were runaways at the end both games. What was the most difficult part now that you -- look back on it was it the strain on your body. Or was it just mentally preparing to play two games such a short period of time. I think it is mentally preparing you know the mental preparations are turned the page. So perfect you know when you can't you -- the first it actually like Thursday. You know and and our public affairs -- -- -- -- that would turn the page and I'm going out to the next game that are the most. Did you sense that everybody was really focused on those three days. I'll definitely you know god we're here early and stately you know we knew we had to do it. Not an excuse to -- What's been the what's gonna talk for for Miami. Matches -- I know how it's been in the past when you guys are preparing for. A game where you can -- something that is that word actually used you'd have you guys this week talked about clinching. Playoffs winning the division. And it has that been part of what an awesome to have the patriots you don't talk about what's obvious but it's obvious you can win a division you guys talk about that much this week. There was -- talk about it if you at all about just different -- you know improved especially on the inside the Baltic one day at a time it. You know cal -- hamburgers -- -- it will unless we can have a lot of where a lot of contributions. All our -- there's there's arms you know going out here excuse our game plan -- get better. -- division so we could -- familiar team but not really because the coaching staff. Changed around quite a bit different quarterback right. But definitely you know go to step is different I don't know what they're doing different things featured weak side. Not to -- You know they have a lot of good young players to show or improve -- at least. And they've -- -- differential with the bluster and actually well I have a lot of players are well. Our they the dolphins are using Reggie Bush. Different than in a different way than the Norwood used -- from what you consider. You know -- I don't remember unborn. You know -- ready but you don't a lot of different things on the Spartan on the part of that action elaborate in the direction. Motioned them out. He had great hands he runs great routes he's actually you know -- between the -- a lot stronger players little by assurances. Hasn't proven record a lot of tackles Ortiz and that -- I'd say that it's more difficult to play Miami in September but does that really. Happened when you -- until late November and you get into December army 77 degrees probably buy games. -- You know what it would not plan the weather you know -- -- -- but -- -- not clear whether accurately in Miami Dolphins and I think where. The treatment and we thought that started. Because Belichick and things don't go out there special auditor that your club and a -- -- presidential. Outlook. What does your body toll on Sunday though in situations like -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Tried by isn't rated the sweat. Off -- did you bite you on call a halt all -- -- -- yeah -- -- -- are severe trauma return anyway and drug he's he's sweatshirt and error conditions could go through a god don't talk radio director -- I don't know a better as a unit that does not match you've you've you've started -- -- on this ridiculous that this buffalo. Bison that now we've got techsters most people saying it's the -- now I got extra weight and that detectors. Are all about this techsters. What the buffalo state to lose and who was departing for college. Power -- it. As you walk walk walk well. -- -- -- -- Sports -- you started it started these. That orbit about Italy Italy is nothing you'd sit together at Lord & Taylor and actually and that's going to be entertainment. -- out will be entertainment. About the. About the defense because. With talked an awful lot of bonded during the course of the season -- talked about the yardage that you guys we've given them but every week you guys seemed to come out with some big. Two takeaways every single week we asked bill about that a Monday. And bills that gets all -- good but we can't expect to do it every single week how much do you think you guys have to tighten up defensively. And not necessarily rely on the fact that you got to force turnovers in recent. Oh you know look after the manager told by improvement and no we get to go to -- especially on third down at the same time continue to try to get the ball off these and still possesses good ball backed off but there we you have to improve within yards and -- What do you think you guys improve every single season second of the season was two years he ran the table I would look at some of these other teams. Like Atlanta you know we'll talk about a little bit -- Iraq right and it looked like they're going the other direction even though they won that game was that. Why is it that every year you guys show some warts in the first half of the season it seemed to clean them up on the second. I just I just haven't -- the book that's out there getting used to each other. Getting some other plan out there like there. And that is sevens now become more comfortable to implement that are present. -- the major major key to promote it. We're losing the most improvement in your own defense. Wherever animals -- -- circuitry like that -- -- linebacker don't know why is that a tricky because I hear it. No you know. Let it -- turnovers because you know it's out of Uganda and let. The plot area turnover and a solid fusion we started off getting hammered and now they're kind of come in bunches and oh. Well why has that Tennessee Volunteers job becomes such a steppingstone job. Or. Or job that nobody can get anybody good hold on to a for a while Philip. No word -- our partners are. Don't know man I don't know if they jog the support is a great job I'm so it's a great job a great place to play football. You don't have any competition in state pretty much isolated. They do get you know. Did you ever lose to Vanderbilt did you ever elusive and he. -- -- a well what are the what are they are. I'll get your voice is still out there segment there's no competition at Vanderbilt beat you guys once I'm. How about our recruiting and things like that it's not like you're in the same potency of Vanderbilt can see it -- Now you article you're wondering -- -- -- that much. Such as. It was a great job giving Jon Gruden you've you've you've I'm sure he's interviewed you before some of these big games you've heard on money and I've applied it to be great for that job. -- look theocracy I don't even though I own -- Renault and Larry Bird and hopefully they turn the program back right now. That's the way it supposed to be at the top. I US does the original question bullish you this question difference between you don't often in the port. I thought -- a portrait yet. You want it was a lure them with that -- what's the difference. -- -- -- It's gonna answer. I really don't couple adult and they looked totally different just I. Got a text from my a butcher friend -- tell me that it's pretty much the same by some buffalo the -- different regions but he said when you order. Don't. Ask for the hopes. -- can because it comes it's really it's really tough. -- go to an idea that's in the garden locker room Reggie got really focused on by -- all -- clear. Talking to her life -- -- -- a bubble yeah record dropped. To gather rarely have -- -- a game plan. So that's actually played all that -- over.
