This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Good morning to you. It's Friday. It's Friday. I can't decide if this week has flown by in a blur or we've limped along and I suspect it's a little of both. There's anticipation just wanting to get to the Super Bowl now. It feels like Super Bowl week stretches on interminably for that reason but also it's been fast because of the balancing act we've done between quality interviews. Our motto going into this week was not quantity but quality interviews and I feel like we have done that. We're proud of the work that we've done this week and if you missed any of our conversations, they're all podcasted but to be able to catch up with Rodney McLeod after the year that was with the Colts and to be able to talk to Matt Overton and find out what Jerry Jones is really like away from the cameras but also why it is different in Dallas. He's played in five other places and he says it really is different in Dallas and tells us why. Not to mention we've had a chance to talk to players, even JC Tretter who was on the show earlier and you're going to hear part of that conversation again this hour.

Their reflections about DeMar Hamlin and about how that impacted the league and what it did inside locker rooms and so it's been really cool to catch up with current players. JC just retired but still the NFLPA, his first appearance on the show and then Carl Eller, first time ever speaking to a member of the Purple People Eaters. He's widely considered one of the best defensive players in Vikings history. 130 and a half sacks for them alone in his career. A 2004 Hall of Famer. He still uses Twitter.

He was posting a photo of himself in his gold jacket on his Twitter account Thursday and so to be able to ask him a few questions about his career, he has one touchdown his entire career. I was watching highlights of Carl Eller before I talked to him on Radio Row and he was a beast. Get this, 6'6". Okay so we're talking about a tall guy but only 240 something pounds. So lean and fast and explosive because he wasn't carrying around a lot of weight.

I mean LeBron James is a few inches taller of course but in terms of the the weight, LeBron is so much heavier than this defensive end. So a 2004 Hall of Famer and also one who understands the plight of many former football players. So he predated the merger and he goes back to an NFL championship game plus four Super Bowls. He's a guy who cares so deeply for the game itself and knows what it's given him but at the same time recognizes that there are a lot of alum of the NFL and of the football, the football world, the football league that don't have the care that they need and so for him to get to Radio Row and to talk to as many people as possible including us about the Grid Iron Grades Fund and how it assists former players who are in need of sometimes just a helping hand. Also here's what I love the most about Carl, he had substance abuse problems when he got out of the league. He sought help, he's remained sober and guess what he did with that? He became a licensed drug and alcohol abuse counselor and opened clinics and worked with various organizations to help other people who had fallen into addiction. This man has spent his entire life just doing what he can to connect with people and help people and so to to now partner with the Grid Iron Grades is right up his alley. I mean this is this is who he is.

So if you missed that conversation please please check it out on our podcast. Earlier in the week, Dana Hughes, former Chiefs wide receiver, giving us a peek behind the curtain with the AFC Championship game and also how these Chiefs have survived despite turning over almost their entire receiving corps as well as their second secondary, their cornerbacks, their safety. So the Chiefs are battle tested but they also have a lot of new guys who've never played in a Super Bowl before. Patrick Mahomes being named an NFL MVP for the second time in his short career.

We're not talking about a Tom Brady like career here. He's not even got a decade in the league, already has two NFL MVPs, a near overwhelming winner, near overwhelming choice, 48 of the 50 first place votes and he was not in person but he recorded a message. It's actually kind of funny, I was wondering whether or not they have all of the candidates record messages just in case or if he found out ahead of time and knew that he had won because I guess it wouldn't be quite as authentic if you think that you're going to win but you don't know for sure. I guess there wasn't a whole lot of secret most people expected him to win but did they also have the other candidates, Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts record messages too just in case.

I actually was thinking that too. Did he know something or did they have him playing it? Well yeah, I feel like they in order to make it authentic they probably would have told him but I wonder how far ahead of time he knew because he's obviously in Super Bowl prep and he was dressed up. This wasn't FaceTime. Remember Aaron Rodgers accepted his was it his 2020 MVP award and he was remote of course and it was something that's when he dropped the bomb about getting engaged I think. So he was on FaceTime or Zoom or something like that. I got engaged.

See what I mean? He was not there in person of course that was a different time but I wonder how far ahead of time Patrick found out that he was a second time winner of the NFL MVP. I want to thank God for giving me this platform and putting so many amazing people around me to help support this dream I've had since I was a little kid. Without him none of this would even be possible. To my wife Brittany, my baby girl Sterling, and my son Bronze. This crazy life that we are living means nothing without y'all keeping me balanced and making me appreciate every single day. No matter how I feel coming home y'all bring me joy and make me appreciate the time that I get to spend with y'all. Thank you for always being there for me through my good times and my bad. Love y'all. To my family, my mom, my dad, my brother, and sister. Thank you for supporting me every day and telling me since I was a little kid to follow my dreams. To the Chief's organization Clark Hunt, Brett Veach, Andy Reed, the staff, and most of all my teammates. I would never be standing here today without y'all. Every day giving everything that we have together to go for the ultimate goal, the Super Bowl.

Let's continue to go for that dream this weekend. Patrick Mahomes, two-time MVP and he joins a select group. Now you might think that there are more quarterbacks in NFL history who've won more than a single MVP award but that is not the case and most of these guys who have are no longer playing the game and so Patrick has a chance to continue to move up on the chart.

Now Peyton Manning, the all-time leader with five MVP awards. Aaron Rodgers has three MVP awards. Tom Brady, wait does the Rodgers have four? Four.

Three. Rodgers has three. Tom Brady had three as well.

Brett Favre, Johnny Unitas, Kurt Warner, Steve Young, Joe Montana. Those are the quarterbacks with multiple MVP awards but think about it only Aaron and Patrick are still playing and Mahomes is so much earlier in his career. There is a chance, now I'm not telling you what's going to happen, it's more of so you're saying there's a chance, there's a chance that Mahomes ties Peyton Manning for most ever MVPs or even passes him.

Though that's a lot, it's asking a lot. Six seasons in which of the MVP is insane. It was insane for Peyton with five of them but yeah in terms of quarterbacks who actually have more than one there's only nine guys on the list and Patrick and Rodgers are the only ones who are still playing and you know Rodgers tells us he was the the COVID MVP, the MVP of the COVID seasons.

So maybe that means he can't win and oh no wait a minute he told us in fact he can still win an MVP. Congratulations to Patrick Mahomes. Also congratulations to Justin Jefferson, the offensive player of the year. 1800 yards, 128 catches led the NFL in both those categories. Nick Bosa, defensive player of the year. 18 and a half sacks tops in the league and then of course San Francisco had the lowest points per game and yards per game allowed collectively as a defense.

Let's see a couple of the others that I really liked. Geno Smith, comeback player of the year. So in this case it doesn't go to a player who is coming back from an injury though very often that's what happens but Geno certainly deserves it or maybe most improved.

I mean either one of those. Brian Deball, the coach of the year. His first season with the New York Giants.

First season as a head coach so that's impressive but the Giants were such a great story not only making the NFC beast what it was along with the Eagles and the Cowboys but winning a wild card out of that division with nine victories and getting to the playoffs we were able to see really the the learning curve of Daniel Jones become much much flatter really picking up steam and seeing his maturity come into focus and his poise certainly has always been an asset but to to cut down on the the dumb mistakes at the worst possible times no one's perfect but he just looked more comfortable in his own skin and so it wasn't nearly as steep a learning curve for him anymore. We have Brian Deball. Cool. What an honor this is to be standing in front of you guys tonight. It's awesome.

Emmett Smith, Barry Sanders, Jim Brown. What a great honor. Appreciative of this award. Want to thank the Marrow family, the Tisch family, Joe Shane, all the scouting staff, the support staff, the club, the fans, the voters and particularly the players and the coaches are the ones that warm up here.

Congratulations to Brian Deball. That was not a funny moment. I'm only laughing because I know what's coming next.

That's I shouldn't have given away sorry. One of the lighter moments and there were many. Kelly Clarkson was wearing a Dallas Cowboys dress for heaven's sakes but the the crazy moment that I think took a lot of people off guard is when she so she was doing some numbers some musical numbers because that's her career obviously. She even said she wasn't sure she was going to accept the NFL's offer when they invited her to host the honors.

Anyway she's up there singing and a member of her band her band leader cuts in because there's going to be a special guest on stage with her. I'm sorry we have one last request. Who? I'm sorry Kelly I just wanted to sing one quick tribute song to Tom Brady on behalf of all the other quarterbacks in our league. All right okay okay. Times one seven times went to ten he's on some beach so maybe Kirk could win yeah yeah since he's been gone.

Wait hold on hold on. First of all you can really sing. What you got it okay okay Kirk cousins I would totally press my button okay um hold on though that doesn't really sound like a tribute it kind of sounds like you're just happy Brady is gone because it you know gives you and the other teams you know a better shot and I am totally for this um I think Brady's retirement is good for him great for us. Because come on Kelly everyone wants to hear you sing not me let's go. Yeah give it up for Kelly Clarkson for Kirk cousins who can sing apparently. All right first of all she has got one hell of a voice I love Clarkson's voice but also what you didn't see you've got to see the video it's on the NFL twitter or jay if you want to share it from our our after our CBS account what's happening as she's saying thirst trap there is a there is a large large as in blown up photo of Tom Brady on the big screen in his undies remember we talked about this he becomes all uninhibited now that he's retired he's promoting his Brady brand it was essentially a bet on social media and he posed in his underwear right after his retirement and so he's doing it like a teenager holding a phone sitting in front of a a wall like mirror her anyway they throw that up on the screen behind her and then they put the camera on Derwin James oh my gosh his face essentially he is mortified and it's like oh no no for those of you who are friends fans you may remember when Phoebe first caught Monica and Chandler together her response was oh my eyes my eyes that's exactly what Derwin James was doing he was like oh no oh no it covers his face you like that you like that so it's really funny uh I just I'm not sure what's funny or Kirk singing and actually having the moxie to get up there and he's wearing his chains right because that's been his thing all year uh or the fact that they threw that photo up of Brady in his underwear to my knowledge Brady was not there they never showed him I didn't see him so since he's been gone first of all you can really see what that was funny there were some light-hearted moments like that when there were some also some really poignant and inspirational moments of course the NFL honoring our service men and women uh home and overseas Ron Rivera doing that presentation and at the end of the ceremony there was a moment I think that made a lot of people cry before DeMar Hamlin took the stage and he gave a couple of minutes of inspirational words and encouragement but even before that they had to bring people up on stage so that he was not up there alone and this is uh Jim Kelly whose voice you hear first getting a group of people to work together as a team now that's hard it takes countless hours of repetition even when no one is watching and when the lights are on you it's what makes the difference between success and catastrophe and to all of you athletes out there he is not talking about you because there is another group who puts in the time day after day monthly month after month year after year a team of unsung heroes I am talking about the men and women who train as hard as any player that has ever lived so that they will be ready at that crucial moment the only difference is they hope that moment never comes oh I thought I'm sorry I thought there was more I thought that uh that was where they in I'm sorry my fault misunderstanding uh what happened after that I thought we're gonna hear it they brought up the entire group of doctors medical workers and then first responders those who were responsible for DeMar Hamlin's care on the field in Cincinnati uh even as he needed to be resuscitated twice so the EMTs and the medical workers that helped to keep him alive that saved his life there as well as at the UC Medical Center and then on to Buffalo as well where he was in the hospital for a couple of days so you hear Jim Kelly and then the tribute from the actress Cheryl Lee Ralph as they brought all of these workers and doctors and EMTs to the stage it was amazing the standing ovation and then they bring up DeMar Hamlin uh we're running late so I promise you'll hear DeMar and his words of encouragement and also a shift in purpose for him too but the the recognition that there's a plan in all of this just blows me away what poise what maturity and what perspective from a man of 24 years old so I definitely want you to hear that just we'll separate it from Kirk Cousins and his singing a little bit coming up a part of my conversation with JC Tretter recently retired offensive lineman spent five years with the Browns three years with the Packers he's still serving as the NFL PA president and he was very open honest also generous with his answers about what happens behind the scenes and the relationship between the union and the NFL good morning to you thanks for joining us happy Friday it's after hours with Amy Lawrence Tess here I've

hey what's up bronze fans joe thomas here and I just got inducted into the 2023 hall of fame class for the nfl and I just wanted to say a big thank you could not have done it without you guys 11 beautiful years in cleveland not always full of a lot of wins but always a lot of pride in the city in the team and you guys were a huge part of that journey absolutely could not have done it without you thank you this is after hours with amy lawrence the voice of joe thomas thomas yes he identifies himself do you know he's the only offensive player who is part of the pro football hall of fame class of 2023 uh rare in fact it's never happened since the merger that four of the five slots are filled by defensive players if you missed it though rondae barber and derell reavis the two cornerbacks outside linebacker demarcus ware and then linebacker zach thomas all selected as well as joe thomas on the first ballot but the reason we have you here from joe thomas on his twitter is because right after we found out that news i had a chance to talk to his former teammate former browns center jc treader who is still serving as the nflpa president it's after hours with amy lawrence here on cbs sports radio the part of the conversation about joe thomas and about playing for the browns and that fan base with some of the wild rides that we've seen with the browns all of that's podcasted so browns fans you're going to want to catch that uh really cool to be able to hear his inside perspective about joe and his 10 363 consecutive snaps but also uh kevin stefanski and the browns i'm bringing back the part of the conversation that pertains to his role now is the president of the players union and we're picking it up where i ask him how he would describe the relationship between the union and the league early in this new cba i would say it's somewhat like the old tale of cats and dogs like there's labor and management will always be at odds somewhat and there are times where um things look like they're being worked together well on the surface and i think you look at covid and you say like man you guys really work together well now the public doesn't see you know the three hour long screaming matches we had behind the scenes but you know we accomplished what we were trying to do which was playing a full season keeping as many people healthy as possible so labor and management will always have different priorities and sometimes they work together better sometimes they work together a little worse but that will will never change i don't think you could have a union and management always on the same page i just don't think that's in the dna of either organization what are the top priorities right now that the nflpa and that you as president are navigating i think health and safety is always top priority we've got a ton of conversations going around about natural grass first our artificial turf fields we've got conversations going on about the concussion protocols this year was that topic was a high priority or a very uh publicized uh discussion point and then the other the other issues being this far out from a cba i think is a time to launch new initiatives and do new things and come up with new ideas that can kind of grow over the course of the next decade i think we've done a couple of those already have been released a few more coming behind it and that was really what i was excited about when i took this job in 2020 was i had a ton of new ideas and new things i wanted to try as the leader of the union and then three days after i was elected covid outbreak happened and we put all those aside because we have to deal with a once in a century pandemic but now that the covid protocols and the coven negotiations are in the review mirror been really enjoyable to dive back into some of those ideas that i was really passionate about trying uh two years ago and now get them off the ground this year the concussion protocols were certainly in the spotlight around what happened with tuatanga veloa the bills and the bangles those two games when you see that when you think about where the league is now we know concussions were up this year though the nfl is saying that's because the protocols are working what's your perspective on it jc is a former player yeah i think our focus with the protocols is one we want our players treated as patients first um we don't want them looked at as players we want them looked at as patients and then you know the focus is really on conservative care and that's what we saw uh with the original issue where you know two it went back in the game and i think everybody saw that and realized like that is definitely not the conservative approach and we had a concussion protocol in which gross motor instability uh was allowed to somewhat be overruled by a non-neurological cause caused injury and after seeing how that transpired we realized that is not conservative care and that's why we've changed the protocols to now be a taxio which is now a clear no-go symptom if you show it you are out there's no kind of loophole to go back in the game with it because you you deem it a separate injury and um you know concussion protocols will continue to change and continue to evolve they very rarely evolve and change as publicly as this one did but we are always looking at ways to prioritize keeping our players safe and sometimes that's keeping them safe from themselves too uh and that's what we've seen over the course of years and what you discussed with the nfl's comments that is somewhat true we have completely shifted um the mentality i think if you look back 10 15 years ago how players saw concussions and pulling themselves out from concussions that wasn't very normal and now i think players are better understanding the risks and the dangers of playing with concussions and also realizing the symptoms and signs of them and then pulling themselves out of the game and reporting those symptoms to make sure they're protecting themselves as well right we have seen a few players do that or we hear more about it it's becoming more common would you say it's a positive or a negative when this type of an issue or really any type of an issue that faces players the league that it becomes public i i think those conversations happen either way like if we are always monitoring them and whether it becomes a big you know pr issue that doesn't really change our job as a union our job is to protect the players and make sure they are safe and and these um get louder when when that happens and that was the issue with the tua injury was everybody saw it right like they saw him get up um and wobble there wasn't much to interpret it was very visual and scary too uh and a bunch of people ask questions but whether no one noticed that game or what happened the work that got done was going to get done either way because that's our job as a union and that's our job as our medical team is to be evaluating those things and making sure we we close any issues and evolve the protocols so i don't think it matters that much i think anytime it does become a big p you know public issue it helps the conversation be more visible to everybody too and a better time to educate people of what the issues are jc treader is with us here after hours on cbs sports radio a completely different situation not a concussion but in the wake of the damar hamlin injury that also played out on national tv the incredible care he received right away there in cincinnati as a former player yourself what's your reaction to how his care was handled those first responders deserve a ton of credit i mean saved saved his life cincinnati and i think pittsburgh are two of the best resuscitation hospital networks in the in the country and a lot of that work is what we've done as a union is focusing on getting the right people on the field and getting the right systems in place on the field and those first responders run through like an hour-long checklist before every single game wow laying each issue of if this happens what are you doing what are you doing who's on what and those are things the union's pushed for for years when you know the issue happened with with damar he had three of the best resuscitation doctors in the country within 50 yards of them that happens from you know the union pushing for the best systems in place to always be protecting the players but a ton of great care for him it was so great to see him at our nflpa press conference when he went to community mvp rightfully so um and i just think everybody's so happy to see him see him back walking around i saw myself some photos of some of the nfl honors tonight too um just so happy for him and his family part of my conversation with nflpa president jc treader a guy that i've wanted to have on the show for quite a while and so we were finally able to connect with him right after he finds out his former teammate is headed to the hall of fame and also seeing damar hamlin giver a giver of of what's been a lot of inspiration as well as encouragement um but he's received it too and he wants to turn around and now use this experience as one that is not just part of his story but can be a springboard for the the rest of his life for the purposes and the plans that he believes he now has in his life such an inspirational young man it's so incredible to hear him and you will before the top of the hour that full conversation with jc about the browns about joe thomas even about players and their fantasy football i know sometimes i work in weird stuff uh it's on our podcast and our podcast is posted every weekday morning on both twitter and facebook and right now on

listening to the after hours podcast temperatures around 35 degrees here this afternoon as volt puts his foot into the ball it's going to be short fielded at the four by hinds coming straight up the middle to the 20 cuts it back in the 25 he's got an alley down the right sideline to the 40 50 down to the 40 35 30 20 15 10 5 touchdown naive hinds 96 yards run run as fast as you can you're not catching hinds he's your end zone man buffalo on the board with the first play from scrimmage this is after hours with amy lawrence i can't be the only one who's going to be the only one with amy lawrence i can't be the only one who still gets chills hearing that call on bill's radio the very first to play when they got back to football following damar hamlin's cardiac arrest on the field but then of course getting released from the hospital back in buffalo watching from his uh his hospital room just incredible what we saw over the course of a week two weeks with damar and his care which is why the medical teams in both cincinnati and buffalo as well as the first responders the doctors who saved his life they were all honored at the nfl ceremony on thursday night and then damar was called on stage and as i say i'm so impressed with him at 24 years old his perspective understanding that this is not the end even if it's not what he anticipated even if it's not what he expected or even what he would have asked for and he continues to inspire first i would like to just thank god for even being here every day i am amazed that my experiences could encourage so many others across the country and even across the world encouraged to pray encouraged to spread love and encouraged to keep fighting no matter the circumstances sudden cardiac arrest was nothing i would have ever chosen to be a part of my story but that's because sometimes our own visions are too small even when we think we are seeing the bigger picture my vision was about playing in the nfl and being the best player that i could be but god's plan was to have a purpose greater than any game in this world my entire life i felt like god was using me to give others hope and now with the new set of circumstances i can only say he's doing what he's always done i have a long journey ahead a journey full of unknowns and a journey full of milestones but it's a lot easier to face your fears when you know your purpose my third night awake in the hospital i met an icu doctor his name was usa he told me he had a similar experience he showed me he was okay and that meant so much to me there was so there was so much uncertainty at the time and just him coming to me showing that i could live a normal life again it meant so much to me in the moment so i want to give a big thank you to him and a special thank you to everyone on this stage for everything they did for me and thank you everyone around the country and around the world who prayed for me and hoped for me the journey will continue awesome but i have news for damar anything but normal his life is anything but normal now moving forward he was also honored at the nflpa award ceremony with the alan page community award and so he was there with his parents on stage he looks good he sounds good uh clearly understands the magnitude of this moment and the quote that i put on twitter that stands out to me it's a lot easier to face your fears when you know your purpose it's not all sunshine and roses and the yellow brick road from here for damar hamlin he's got a lot of fears about the future maybe he fears that he'll never play football again but he knows his purpose and his perspective is so much bigger now gosh what an inspiration from one moment one man but a team and a cast of hundreds of people on the field at the hospitals and even now that are helping to take care of him so really amazing to hear that from damar at the nfl honors it's after hours with amy lawrence on cbs sports radio lots of cool moments even now they've been replaying it overnight on nfl network so it's been fun to hear gosh and that gets us almost to the end of the week i know for many people there's still friday radio row the the wrap-up to this week on uh on that radio row where you've got so many tv and radio stations that come and do interviews um and so that kind of closes one door and then we still have more than 48 hours until kickoff but of course the game is the thing right uh andy reed by the way he's running on adrenaline these days i i'm glad because he's been everywhere the the media responsibilities are steep for the quarterbacks and the coaches when it comes to the super bowl we hear from them every single day uh but he's hanging in there even as he's prepping for what's to come how do you take your coffee you know i don't drink coffee but what do you drink in the morning then i start your day i just get up and go i got endless energy for a chubby guy oh i love andy reed so much so much he does not hide the fact that he loves cheeseburgers i grew up on in and out um but i've had a few five guys and the shake shack you know i no i don't turn any of them away shake shack he had to work that in but then the man does not drink coffee how is that even possible so he's all about his burgers and his hawaiian shirts and endless energy he just gets up and goes endless energy for a chubby guy oh my gosh he's the best he does not care he gives two bleeps if you know what i mean he's not care he just is who he is he's andy reed and you gotta take it or leave it all right coach what makes this chief's roster special they kind of know when to be crazy and when uh when to crank it down and uh tune it in and be serious uh and so they're i think it's a good bunch unique i feel i felt like during the season every week i was getting to know these new guys a little bit better we had so many changes and i love the way everything gelled there he also gives us some insight into the special relationship between patrick mahomes and travis kelsey which honestly is going to be a focal point for really any defense that games play a game plans for the chiefs and yet still they're so unbelievably productive the best friends on the field and off the field that i guess helps too you you want to be if you're a receiver you want to be friendly with the quarterback for sure you know travis is uh he studies he comes off like a nice funny guy and happy-go-lucky but he studies like crazy travis kelsey is a killer underneath all that goofiness he and his brother obviously play each other uh first brothers ever to face each other on the field uh in what is called the kelsey bowl one more because i love travis how does he want to be remembered even birch even before we go into super bowl sunday i've always wanted that legacy of being the greatest man ever since i was a kid and um i think the steps the stats the numbers all the all the things that you could you accomplish that's how you're kind of measured when it's all said and done and um you know that's kind of how i measured guys growing up and it's a cool thing to to be recognized in that light man but um when i tell you this super bowl when uh when it comes down to super bowls i i want to be above 500 at this point i wanted to win them all i wanted to win them all but right now i just want to be above 500 man and uh that's the biggest stat that i could i could throw out there that i have on my mind 12 touchdowns this season serious xm nfl radio and obviously the anchor in the relationship i call them the most well one of the most productive married couples in sports right they're just they need each other they're connected forever but the rest of that group has come along so we know what the offense did for the chiefs this year and certainly for the eagles as well and you would think the best strategy for each defense would be to stuff the run and just get them off the field as quickly as possible so how do you exactly play keep away from patrick mahomes nick seriani our job is to score points on offense um you know and that and and so sometimes that's the the way you play it is as a keepaway battle sometimes it is to you know try to score as many points as you possibly can i've always been in the school of scoring as many points as you possibly can and trying to score more than the other guys all right well then that doesn't mean you have to keep it away only you have to stop them when they've got the football it seems so simple right i go back to it but these two offenses they can hurt you in a variety of ways uh one more fletcher cox who you know is a long time nfl vet along with say a brandon gramm who was part of their last super bowl win they don't have a ton of familiarity with mahomes and the chiefs though we played them last year but there's different team we're a different team you know and they got some some really good players and that's the thing about being pros you got to be able to adjust and you know on the fly you got to be able to prepare for somebody you haven't seen before and and you know that's that's something we've done all year um obviously got your division games but you got a team that you normally don't play each year um so when you can adjust um your game plans and you know adjust things that that that you normally don't do um it's really good but you know we keep the main thing the main thing it don't matter what play calls we have to execute the play they definitely want to rush the quarterback four guys with 10 plus sacks for the eagles never happened before now for us of course we don't have to go into x's and o's until sunday night we get back here for our super bowl post game show you don't want to miss that
