Who did you click -- A all of what the flight laugh so that was that was the team's all Americans grew up blue blue blue you you play it one way. All. It. You read that -- you let the game when they threw snowballs at Santa -- that he deservedly. Yes there. Were -- it was you know what you wanna be played in this game on Sunday afternoon agreement. Well. You are you have to use of the playoffs. That's. Why wouldn't buy up all -- sick or -- regulatory. -- the commissioner usual letter. Would make the playoffs. -- -- -- has brought it up portal letters. It doesn't so -- got in their -- congratulations. You're you have made it well and you've got a chance to play in the big game. -- Now let me ask are you all are aware but the -- are gonna -- question for you -- if -- Would you Hejduk we -- paper ticket to go watch that game. What I yes would you pay for ticket optical watch second to be negative it. -- in Europe in just in the wrong. I've never made it to go what -- both quote play quote we need to pick. What you don't regret. At the wrong -- -- agricultural who. Got I've never paid the watch football in Europe admiral. Indy Lights that you never have a way to the top top. Yeah are her -- article so my game today are Eric Gregg -- -- -- -- the -- out of from the perspective of a coach you have -- the playoffs before you have coached in the elements how you prepared team whether you are Mike McCarthy whether you are. Jim Harbaugh -- prepared to -- -- prepared team to play in those conditions where it could be -- twenty below. -- -- -- -- player like sprinkles. And they can -- all at all all you got it right about double play but obviously you understand that these conditions we got to play. It is -- football -- -- what. He gets caught with some of the -- -- -- if you look at the play that other workers -- -- -- But they're not to -- Let Victor -- and that you're no democracy got a hold gamers only got open man got to help -- bought -- -- -- -- out in that department now. You don't like you can prepare the weather's so bad that it it can affect the football game because you want to have. In my opinion the best conditions to say that he's the best players in the war one as you gain a competitive and not whether. That it happens at one of the best in the story -- little -- -- Well we will get to that out but don't ask you this now that I know you're in Kansas City when you you made the decision. And Clark October this story he said Harmon I'd give -- all the credit in the world he told us we were getting too old and we needed to go young you guys -- young. You have made the playoffs previously that you decide to go young and you brought in a number of people including Jamaal Charles tell me. Yep that's gotten a third round what the conversations like before that draft where you look at this kid from Texas through what we what were your thoughts about Jamaal Charles at that time. Well the great part of this god don't let Tex Texans beat people so bad that never got to conserve what. Get all the damage euros have been played. In Seoul look at vehicles. -- -- you're number of people. And -- this the kind of guy we want me don't be sent capped player very explosive. On as a great since. A vision we have the football is beginning. Can he can accelerate right now is it'll go -- right. Income grew up with football and that that -- stronger these little pat section he had great hands governor. It was just a matter of fact it in the lineup and over his first to see who you know you struggle with those things. But now like in the halls of -- that we play you have that -- what you got witnesses that we -- in -- Bill Belichick -- -- eleven. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- no clothes. But what you were a lot being -- it but what can you talk about football. And I think it the year I would look at probable players are still -- -- in the bedroom. Which is good. You like that team I mean that chiefs team that can go to the civil. Well they have the elements we've got a good expressed to them there available probably used to. The secondary it -- -- the loose ball and they don't get a watched it got an outstanding linebacker Derrick donkey Dick what a couple of coincides with a good. Their quarterback very efficient. Football the -- dynamic water. -- the ball -- good -- but you gotta you gotta you gotta go at people -- -- -- the rocket lack of forgotten when you're hurt but. Yet -- -- back and make some noise. I get nervous that they really quarterback because that's kind of did their huge heel this year with a pretty typical quarterback you can -- -- got -- back here. Who else you like -- when you're breaking down these playoffs either AFC or NFC. We feel like work. Yeah you're right you're right. An innovative and it may yet get your baby around that weaponry premier. You talked about Kansas and who didn't mean that -- the type -- quarterback -- dude yeah did what -- -- a little bit yeah I'm saying it. I don't know there's -- you pick them up and play well like they say look out look out. You can score points now in the NFC. World war. Pick apart these secretly. Effort to go Carolina. And at once -- played up there with twelve guidance given. Yet. Picked up the -- They they can they can mean they can that you call people children waiting -- you know block -- was a big gap. So I think it is wide open because you can score points this lively could you got the quarterback so written by way. So you know you got -- -- look at. Are you told us before while when you're coaching always go to guys and say they did that come into your office and you'd ask him how -- you -- right. Are you don't. So would you how would you handle a situation Leslie Frazier was challenge with this -- the big story yesterday and today Chris Kluwe week. Called Leslie call Leslie Frazier coward he called a special teams coach a big. How to handle this situation when you've got an outspoken player and it's not what your best players that means on detained but right in the potter oh what. Well what they as they care here. Obviously wait out in the football content. And if you want Obama Fraizer yeah me it is your character guy. -- -- Okay now cornered now in very to a couple couldn't there's a reason there. Now by active. Citizenry. You know what what they I don't know all I know if a player has an issue with winter coat -- you know out of all bought my attention. Army -- and because -- all believe the players like anything else than what we're about football say this all the time. The uniqueness of the hall would you get no -- There's different religions. -- political views and there's different apolitical what is it solved it but at the end we respect each. We respect each other. About half the hole but that -- that the team got the team concept a league football -- -- -- There's hope that that's not be in that up in delivered like -- in that market. Is there room for an outspoken player like Chris Kluwe we in the NFL. It -- that you Aetna's platform. You're a football player for if someone asks you questions about the open obviously you can Spiegel. I have a problem with it what you would become your platform that you keep platform. That you use with football and wrong you're wrong reason. -- Should be about personal -- it. We're not gonna get to -- the pitchers is weak or have to wait till next week but they've they've they've looked a little different than when we talked to last term last couple times they've been out there. Obviously that loss Rob Gronkowski but we've seen increase running game over 400 yards. In their last two games and in that time I think Brady only have thirty completions combined in the two games. Court the patriots to you right now. Guarantee that has the ability to adjust failure to national all of that -- with -- vehicle Lugo. First time -- Alford. Quarterback in everywhere else fault. And they know that this is the team that we go also what happens they continue to adjust when football. Inept inept takes a lot of well there's a lot of ability to -- and what they're doing. Use the player there are available the local military does better than anybody use the players that are available. The players know it. You never know how much you're gonna play what's going to be asked to -- When it's asked to do because for the betterment of the team and the players buy into what got a book that. When asked about the Tampa situation Lovie Smith goes back there he was a linebackers coach how do you think he'll do in Tampa. Well I think you'd be great and deliver us with -- was -- -- memorabilia and first look down -- not that he realizes -- liked it there and order situation. -- -- -- -- Great fans and I think they'll respect this. It were possible vote group. -- told him that it would -- indeed but that can go on these is what it's capable of at a great career. So expect if he had player. -- -- -- Yeah as will linebacker is. They're strong and so that I feel that it. -- over the bill. I think you'll bring deputy equation that their young quarterback is honored with the receivers so that he -- -- very competitive. Multi use those players -- in the sense. In the late for the players to play a lot reported guy. So active that at all -- we've -- another -- -- but I have to rework. Which of the six jobs that were open you think was the best job. You're asking me the million dollar question updated yes sir I'm not turn the corner bars for small orchard gravel lot better. I think all the old it's that there is only 32 by the -- in the whole world and at Churchill. And that's some some situations the better and other similar -- that situation. Obviously ownership as one has something to do with a and then now we got a plate with the ball a lot. Definitely good job -- available. But it brought with it becomes difficult. Yeah I just think in that profession army are you know much better than we do. It's becoming that the parity of the league is being held against coaches I think and that the team that the coaches that are able to do the perfect these turnarounds 511115. For Andy -- situation -- for me to the playoffs. It seems like a lot of owners are expecting that guys are getting a lot of time ESP five years four years now it's in the case of Robert Kaczynski one year Warren. Well here's a number of this fiscal Belichick arrived in New England are I think there's been a hundred -- coaches aren't it will. -- part. -- -- -- It but that. Yes that pays a 111 that's on the other 211. Coaches and Bill Belichick and. And there ego that he. It. Don't want -- In one of artwork -- I don't -- it isn't it great that art. Work. Oh. -- what is your view is enjoy. Understand. That now if possible -- well let it. It won't blow -- it -- way -- retired early at your -- player in the -- The good players are on the back but -- you know. Re watching games this weekend there and Russell. I called a -- under armour all America -- Yeah -- yeah Heidi how are your -- Howard high density those beautiful baby. Yeah in we've been doing it three years now. Moved one lap that was the last 2 October 02 year old folder with its players but great players too -- group is almost a moot you'll go about your job -- certain purposes. If we win who lose it don't matter so are. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I've got thrown his way. -- his way till jaws decides he wants to come out there and do that also jobs jobs there jeopardize my daughter would not let them are certainly your old record you'll have. And are we always appreciated Herm Edwards on patriots Friday brought to buy DCU digital federal credit union -- DC UC view Newton -- possibly Newton Wellesley orthopedic associates. And by Mohegan Sun term thank you so much doctors soon. -- -- -- At figures it out whether it actually why it is horrible -- terrible kind of fly from where -- I thought. Ma but -- Just stay in Birmingham delayed justice they've -- that I want the world wide audit work -- build -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think having rejected offer around sixteen or seventeen inches -- huge -- -- -- -- Bobby -- got -- Taylor who almost -- not to play somebody with this doubled and snowblower or something right now. -- that was yet it would look out when I was -- pocket.
