Sixteen regular season games and now the playoff games. And Ed any point and I know you've and that's and you won't be ready for the Super Bowl but is there. A sense of wariness at all like man I can't believe we're still playing we're gonna play in the February now. You don't have that so prevalent this year largest bank and and I'm I'm sure that your coach Myers and the focus you know week two we can market to our approach is low you know just ten. Continue to do what we're been and every week and treat every week to stand. You know regardless of the playoff Emory university in game I think you know tell us. With the success. What's it been like to play. You know with Matt Ryan and an offense which is really like a juggernaut was that there might that play with him and how does he really command that often. The trigger radio music by Gartner last year really respect the way he goes about Putin's every case. Very professional. Are smarter. Very determined not to kill or characteristic school. You might see in some people put that you know he has all traditions cultures one here one arm and I think it helps. It make what you think it's critical player. She has. Eddie guys you beat the Packers do to get to the Super Bowl the the cowboys throughout a team that everybody knows the Packers got to the national team do you feel like the Atlanta Falcons sort of are under the radar when it comes to a pro football fans in America the states. You know I'm not sure don't so much attention this you know we we tram just hunkered down here and focus on what we can do them. I know we we know what we're capable of humans regardless of who thinks what shall you know we destroy about our business and it is certainly worth. You know that's what we are talking to a guy yesterday on the show about how your roster was built. Part of it I think in him you are an example that your your center Alex Mac just guys who. You know for whatever reason were available in free agency and ended side down to the falcons about a lot of fanfare without. Much notice you you know obviously acquired a year to go and then Alex Mack coming over from the Cleveland Browns re as the number one pick it. It's almost like the falcons kind of snuck up on people of New York she. Yeah I think mr. Berman and Gujarat. Bringing guys in our musical lot of guys. You know maybe you didn't know about and so we got here but there's you know a and to be double about talent and find the church or. Four and in places. To get on the team. And you know certain show. It was have been like you know claim under Dan Quinn the coast that came over from Seattle in the what's his personality like how does he command the entire team. What's it been like playing France. It's been great. I mean. When I first got here out just like man this this question also. Yeah sisters were a they haven't had this response and like you know high school college just. Really it's really loose atmosphere in terms. You know to have fun but still focus on your job and competing. You know I think it's a good job creating healthy environment of competition here. And it could be animation on the coming in every day go go out practice in view. You know I can't say enough good things about the way they accuse you made this program. Well I would Andy Petrie former bills guard now playing with the Atlanta Falcons headed to the Super Bowl next week in Houston. Eddie what was it like to close down the Georgia Dome with oh a wind of that magnitude on Sunday and had to be a pretty cool way to go out Nash at that stadium now. Yet those cool I mean the fans were three years. So loud environment I think have been in Georgia Dome since I've been here so as well for a lot of excitement or energy throughout all of game. On Sunday. I think that's that's a good way to go or don't. I've seen a couple of different clues of Arthur Blank dancing back. What's it do like to watch him dance and and houses dance moves. They're good he got. At best bet. These new lover how these so you can president of. Andy the the championship the NFC championship the Super Bowl just. One of us several reasons that you have to celebrate these days and it was a pretty cool story about the birth of your daughter just what a week or so ago your your wife Katie or part native gave birth to a daughter and what went into labor during the playoff game a week ago is that right. Yeah ever before we put Seattle I didn't know about it through she its third. And they were just before the game sort of you know should we had kind of organize performance. Player or that operation guys. You know it can contact information in case something happened like that. And so she reached out and you can tell me anything it taught in the field. Ultimately actually are a lot Korea this is that the game. She's she's into the whole game issues it's just stroke on she she made it and she. Yet so and then she wanted to go home after which hospitals and so. Were over Chinese news. And then as you know of course she's busy on construction. And then he went to hospital later and then. Or. Well of a little girl right Lilly username. It. Congratulations that's got to be pretty cool what a great. Even better than when in the east playoff games right I mean it has to be as we even better than all that. Yeah oh absolutely it was amazing and the timing couldn't have been more perfect breasts and you know does little stressful yeah service. You know or and I imagine what she's gonna go in the labor so. I think you know Aetna home home game against Seattle really helped us you know everything. Happens for a reason I think federal someplace. Decrease did did you talk about that like listen this is Sadie listeners if I go in the labor during the game homestand last game. She wasn't sure Eric I think you're kind of depend on how she progressed through labor you know shoes yet or are you. I think she felt comfortable enough you know we took a couple birth classes. We have to divert so I think she had a good iron. I have to do you know when it was time ago when once it's so. She degrade those years she tough. I can give her enough credit for certain wishing that. And then I read Andy did what just yesterday a coach Quinn awarded your wife Katie a game ball or is that right. Yes he did you came over here that are. There were pretty cool what that you really appreciate yesterday it was her mind she's like kind of taken back by and you know. Why do you. You know you appreciate but you know here this is excellent job. He'd been our number on them and they'll want. Sounds like she's the heart and soul of the team. This year and I appreciate over now the that's pretty cool and now is Katie in your daughter Lily gonna make the trip to Houston next week for the suitable. We are trying to figure it out today. And yeah its order. Really in on yes. Are open all the travel plans. Can be limited to accommodate her so you're we're trying to figure it's. Hypocritical of me so grandparents are coming through yeah. Babysitters that I mean. Yeah yeah NRA nine. We're yeah we're trying to figure all that logistics society it. Eight years eight seasons in the NFL and you know obviously you'd you started your career in buffalo that the the side trip I guess to Tennessee and now. Couple years here in the Atlanta I know you're not in the mood to look back here and and reflect a much right now to get ready to play miserable but. Things worked out pretty well for you when you think about what you've done so far in the NFL wouldn't you say. Yeah you that's some rough patches in a weird. And I think I think get a chance to come out here is it was a blessing for me. And giving me the chance to prove myself and you know Thomas would be cheaper very welcoming when I hear. You know just they told me when I got tired is be myself in or don't and do anything more than. And yours being yourself so. I think I think that when I first got here that was really cool and really saddens me. You know our votes. Began when it really start to appreciate tapestry here and register carrier on throughout the I think all the guys that aren't in this program. You know it's been. Or or starting your career off here in buffalo playing against the patriots twice a year you think you have obviously is totally different team. From the last time the patriots in the Super Bowl when it's totally different team since. You've played the patriots twice a year but in other run in the same system so you think you have some extra insight being that you played against them twice a year when you were here. I guess and I liked him I have a good ideas to how they operate. You know similar. Coaches OG. But personnel wise you know those changes are reaching. Well you know I had another good team and you know pretty handsome bunch when all the buffalo so. I'm not going to be it's gonna come down the wire thing. And now back before. You know.
