For those of flavor. And actually made a poet so here. I did great. There's no root -- we have picnic you can make an excuse for. -- the suspect that they -- good football player municipal. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And if so what do you what did you think of -- play. You know. We stipulate that you. You know on the previous drive what. And or -- or in the air in the I didn't fully developed it -- Nicole all of you for holding. As frustrating as they -- like in the game they go okay. You know the book that the -- while solve all paid there's going to be. All arms are wrapped around receiver. As with all year. Well well. No matter what it is all that are eligible. Over editor you know whose land on the five yard line here you know so that the ball -- old. Obviously not very close OK I understand not a fiscal all the all the you know anything within three feet of rock is acceptable you know. So. It's just. -- Review review.

Route when they pick it up when they pick up the flag and the explanation is there is no flag and they sprint off the field. What is that feeling like as a player watching the flag get picked up and watching officials just -- a jog off like OK game's over we didn't call penalty -- -- bad. If that's the -- import. You're wanting to hear explanations for why the flag was picked up. -- -- -- fires to justify the reasoning behind a home you know the guy that threw the flag was the one I was sitting right. I'm all right here. In the side. The -- and over civil war to get school green they would notice here you know. When you are the way for most of action. It you know -- might have looked not sensible but when your right there. You look at the replay. The ref that was right behind -- -- so. Is it a little this is. It's a tough way to lose a game purses where there. Offense so. -- so well it down to that point. You know it's an obvious follow others should have been at least. You know -- means -- test servers and he has always so. I guess some orderly it Elvis and emotion aside maybe you still not. That'll remain used to question put. You're in that locker room is it a quick visit addresses a team like other other opportunities that we missed -- -- as well or does that happen -- he just. Sort of individually deal with the. That voters. There are places that we could've done better. Could've played better. Knows there's always a handful of plays. It changed the game I mean. The fact is that history for plays myself. You instantly. Know our record -- better. Well at the quarterback you know step up in the pocket is known. It's just you're there or they get about a certain -- -- certain players so. It was never perfect game was this one -- -- -- -- -- -- feel good about what is -- you know it is -- That is normal range missile it. Capitalize. On -- opportunities. Better. So as one of the team leaders how -- you guys put this behind them clustered on -- -- big game this week to. Dare we ask you because you know. Or play the big game. You just gotta earn you know from the paid them less injured -- -- goes there he hit it into law. Think about it during the week of preparation. For for Denver so. -- order removal from Clinton.

The press on it and you know who's been. Keep her organs. Well I guess you won't know until Sunday night when you take the field but last one for me play with them. For a lot of years you saw -- a lot for your offense you think it'll be weird if Wes Welker is out there where the Broncos uniform and you get locked up in coverage with them on the other side after playing with him for so long route.
