Showtime and it's one of those deals where as a back up you just never know when your opportunities -- a comment. You know you your instincts are Gregor helmet and get ready for the play call you never know when you're going in. You know last week before the Cleveland game Terrelle Pryor was on the roster not actually on the roster but He was able to practice with the unit seemed to me like He got a lot of arrest that you ordinarily would've gotten was it was -- someone a bad timing to be asked to play in that game off that week of preparations that you didn't get that. The usual volume of reps you typically get. And it's always tough I mean I hate making excuses you know you gotta go in there and yet excuse that's ultimately you know what you do as a backup quarterback He never going up to he's going to be but. You know -- he'll get reps with the starting group is the starter -- take those reps and then obviously I take scout team and you know -- outs but doesn't have so you know it is what it is it's been a good week I'm glad that I've been able to get more reps this week. A couple of throws you made early in the game much about cuts you missed a little bit but the later in the game you had a couple of big slant to DH -- pick up some first downs when you went back and looked at the game. How did you analyze your performance last week against Cleveland yeah I mean He said it perfect I miss those first couple throws. And Hackett I can hit those I know I can hit those I just was you know my my footwork was off and I try to get the ball there too fast so. You know as the game went on I felt like a settled down -- get a good job protecting the ball and you know move the chains and obviously I wish -- -- Got that fourth the fourth and one and up with the points on the board but. Got more comfortable as it went on and and you know like I said just. You know the the more rest they got this week I feel much more comfortable. And the next day the rumor start and then on Tuesday they make the traits are your thinking on the starting quarterback and his team and then they go out trade for a guy who's won a Heisman Trophy amended to -- Bulls what was your reaction. When they traded for Carson on Tuesday well -- obviously I'd I'd be lying if I was like you know. You know salary and then you know and I guess that means I'm going back to being a back up. But ultimately when you think about it you know he's a great player in this this team needs many great players -- get. And you know -- -- that to push him make him better and you know that is the same for me so that's one of those deals where that's like in the in the National Football League you just you come to work every day and give it your best and you know whatever happens happens and all of a sudden he's your new teammate you gotta love -- but it's calabrese is USC -- -- how's -- -- -- Yeah I've got I've got to know Carson over the years same draft class -- -- that he's a great guy I think we get along great so. You know that that part is is not a big deal with the united agreed to work with them in the -- -- meant to you know that's. That's what is this is all value that you learn things and different guys in and and -- move on and and you know be a great teammate for me -- a great year for him and you know hopefully together we can help. Help this thing to go over long ago Kansas City Chiefs they had a good defense a number 91 time volley is a bear on the outside looks for an electric to cover corners Brandon Flowers training car. Terrific football players how do you score points on this defense well I think those guys are playing great you know a decent car or flowers or Gardner good corners and you know we got to -- 91 you know the main thing about. About winning this game is is gonna be exclusion you know He obviously not turn the ball over and just taking it one play at a time staying out of negative plays staying in manageable third. No third downs who we don't need any you know third and resilience you know we need -- third and shorts you know -- -- completion percentage. And like I said just go out there -- excuse you know take it one play at times there's gonna be a bump in the road here there. You know minimize those and and you know about their excuse and score a lot of points on the board and play well if you play on Sunday I appreciate thanks a lot.
