So many things that really grabbed me in that article one of them was when you were hurt in your thick and it was after the Tennessee game. You're thinking there's a possibility your career could be over. One of the first things you thought about was she would get a chance in the playoff drought struck by Edmonton I mean there's nobody thinks that we think about at that point added another. The playoff drought would be one of those things go through your mind. Yeah I like to go you're doing by goals I want to at least complete a lot of the goals that I set myself. And wanted one of the biggest goals was in the drought I mean that's one of the one of the biggest accomplishments I. I think I wanted to be part of I mean it's it's amazing being part of history you know. At least one at least one thing they can say is I was a part of that team that brought back after it was successive years. That's that's pretty amazing and that's what's warrant I don't know why do they had the competitive nature in me two to one of the par today this kind of kicked in. I mean Ole miss football stated the football field time in. I just at first thing as competitive as this optimize and. That's cool and I I I thought it's funny I thought. I get your explanation now if you look at it and I guess other guys what you we wanna be the team that it because people will love you guys writing the drought. And it's funny I look that I thought that you've always got to just like consumed like are you walk carrying the package or here for all sixteen years nobody was but a huge cash like to carry the package of all of those. Snub it is kind of it's kind of crazy has been through literally sixteen years now so. I mean it's crazy because we had a talent I mean we have the coach's. Own we have a one if not the best owner in the in the week. Are jam. Rest something we have the people ages it's if it's frustrating to success and now understand why why can't we just. Have already been made it there you know we have the right pieces so. I wanna be part of wanna be part of it's your own or some great. And I have a chance to still be part. Thankfully. I think it might it might not surprised fans to hear that you are shown us that way because. To my eye to buy here of all the players to come through town in different guys at different levels of investment in the community yeah the apartment and I think Europe. Maybe get the pop. Throughout this whole drug you know whether it's. Talk about the sabres Ehrlich is paean. You seem to me be totally plugged in to this area to the people and football players come from all around the world the rock from the country from California taxes. And to have buffalo with a plea she conflict. Take us through through your time when you first knew you were gonna come here maybe your first impressions. And now what do you think we feel this places that want their home. My mindset my first guy gears completely different from where it is now. Mom march that offers a first all. I've made you herd of buffalo new ones in my whole life I kept I came here and how has like eight years eight or nine Izzo for track me. We get a national tracked me appears when you. That I had no idea about buffalo sire drafted those. And I didn't even talk to team during the whole draft process so it was low wage injected by them in the right I just buy them. I've got up here in. Nothing appear. What is going on. And then you know it just being around guys like George Wilson Bryant's guy and Fred Jackson in those guys who have guys were in the community most cells from them a lot so. Seen them. Doing so much work off the field. And scene of the joy and pleasure and and with the kids and parents. That's when that's what I wanted to be part of so I support those guys an atomic rows of how to be in the median. And how to make the difference maker instead of just being a guy who drove. Pigskin you know that's it's likely more than that and then to be great on the field you know that this is game we have this game we have here and I won't be don't personalized so I wanted our two days of making people happy. Or Urbina a great influence in a little kids life you know you the little things and executes well so it's it's great being part of. We talked with that it it. Over the course of time like. Veterans kind of instilled things in. The young guys in the used to be that the veterans and tell the young guys about the dolphins rivalry and why that matters so much and now we just talked keep on Seymour moments ago like. Do you take it upon yourself. To let. The young guys coming in know that they should want that same thing to just be be more than a football player on here you of the opportunity. To be something bigger better and that. I mean you like to me avoid sin and helping the team now by the same time you can't force a guided the something in the 12. I can. Hi just try to help well as much as possible with the new guys come in across is that rookie earth or a guy freeagent. On the league for about a few years and they just you know a team. I mean I'm here for any help. I elect to be the guy that either positive road I don't teams that you like yeah you should be able to do this because it will make this group of people happy. And by the same time I can make your but I do you know what I want in due in part of the community but you know why not. Ask you when it. I heard you talk about it read the other day then what's it like. Have a guy like that around to work with as a position coach in what what are you learning from every. Man fighting is because our correlates this is united in high school you pay literary. And you have you been given like a week to do it. You do last new course that at a college do you go to spark notes dot com and you. Hillary dealing Americans and thirty minutes west like Howard haven't had a reason I didn't sleep for six years but I learned so much in Paris. Month. That I have in my sixers are saying that I didn't learn anything the coaches because it's a different perspective when you have a guy who's literally just off the field. Playing the game that Saddam plant and the same position at that I mean it is different requirement from the guy who's ago. Safety and so parent that time mentors is amazing I mean you you pick up things that you. Literally on soon everything goes I mean just do this stay here a little longer and back them just. Three back pedals and you'll get there in in two and I just like little detail he's Barry Zito lost things. And some after the hour when Brady took him. I was more relying on my criticism. Now what prepare for the game and prepare for the scheme how. It all matches all the players that have just myself so haven't haven't had their immense in this and the main thing. How tough was it you had last year the interior Odyssey gone through of the recovery but how tough was it to watch the defense and seeded. The communication problems are see all the things that happened last sees that you weren't able to be there helpless in when you watch did you think. And did you learn anything from watch and it just from being on the outside and be in the I was watching the film but not out. Part you know somebody said because I understand why now if fans. Are so frustrated I see what they see and I never really an immigrants are alive. A lot of fans refreshing. Thing and I don't know they're doing it like there has been caught. Or look out now washed and lightning and we were all over the place and you know is this like world our hands are up ball snapped. We don't get caught me. And I see why so fresh and by the same time. They don't see how it is inside were on the field waiting for call and you know we don't get Anton is just it's it is part of a game and seen now especially because it can be easily solved. And I skated down better job of can meet you my guys when I was at home and saying hey. Think by asking cosic yup and he this but. Because I was there I felt like I. Must say to have a voice but I'm not communal feel so I can't really communicate what's going on. Between those will those guys and what do those things those bird Berkshire. Will be different this year the simplification is going to be big talking point yeah that we always have flats and fought a lot of things then. Just allow us to play faster I'm FL I laps were thinking so much. A lower schemes wanna do and how we can make plays I think a lot of guys were were pressing on Macomb place.
