Dennis Allen talks about Miles Burris' progress, provides an update on Shane Lechler, and comments on the tight end competition.
You know he's he's been up and down. He plays really parties and energetic guy. You know he understands football again at the same time you know we don't want things adding. And he's still got to continue to improve get better and he's going to be the player. You know we just got workers among them systems. At some point very young yelling and hammered. It and they won't be this year. As far as haven't everything down it takes a while I mean this is. This is a complex game and and we know a lot of things Adam. But you know what you're looking forwards. You know every day when this team improve a little bit and and we column repeat mistake defenders we want to see guys that make the same mistakes over and over and he's got a pretty nice job and didn't get some things corrected that. There every day something new we put in something new defensively are off that puts it in new look for you know so it's just get a chance to seal -- different looks. Oh. Absolutely. Actually fits that mold perfectly -- and and you know in addition to that I mean here's again it's been on a couple world championship teams and you want guys around that I've seen it done at the highest level and know how to win those championships because at the end of the day that's what all holes. It. -- We've we've we've played him in and he did a lot of things there in New York you know playing inside playing outside. And we moved him around it used in a lot of different roles. -- Well he's out here somebody's mostly in the trailer and get in his rehab. You know he's probably. He's probably I don't know maybe a week away before we really actually getting that here and start start working -- -- necessarily timetable on it. I would expect scene in the next couple days. -- I think he's kind of working -- into the number one guy. But I don't know that. That depth chart is consistently changed so. He's number one right now but you know two weeks down the road you know we'll see where that. What he's done a nice job trying to beat -- you know. You know I think from a receiving standpoint that's probably. Ortiz is it needs a little bit more advanced to spores you know kind of known what to do it in -- -- we got to continue to work with -- This important game run blocking but. Again I've said this all along I think with the tight ends that we have we've got some versatility in each guy as a unique skill set that. We plan on trying to use. This -- All of Richard Gordon right now. He he's a big physical guy we got him back out there yesterday for the first time in. And you can really notices physical presence. You know first rookie and you know one on one pass protection really step up and -- safety so. See him is probably. More than physical presence about art. Well like I said before -- he's he's doing a nice job it's the consistency thing with him. You know it's a developmental process and meet you. All he continues to improve but you know still a lot of things we get it corrected with him -- -- Time. You know he's a little further behind Nate got a he's got to step up from the standpoint of just knowing what to do and and and how to do it. You know. You know he's got a little bit more an issue with what makes -- the same mistakes over and over so we gotta get him we got to get him corrected. In them or. -- -- Yes I mean those -- those are the things that that cost you games. And now. You know were were really preaching the -- you know to learn how to win in the national football league for saying it is and -- so. And so penalties. Turning the ball over those types things -- football games and do we get that correct their programs -- appearances same things over and over.
