It was good it was good. Gives Chase Field what you. Look like on Monday night so secure against them. -- -- Cutler's teammate in I don't view the city it's been so it hasn't been on the field yet in. -- -- a little bit at a standstill and right now so. Already keep evaluating him NC we're sad that. He's actually out this week there's potential there and answers. That I don't know that. Has he learned enough and you lose help because Monday yours. Yeah. He's come and done a nice job and and picked up what we're doing offensively so. We feel good about where -- And so you limit all as far as. Placing my or you feel comfortable being called. Feel pretty comfortable -- -- until the guy he he's a pro. It's not his first rodeos. He's been in the league in. And so. You know we don't feel like we got a limited anything for him -- him noticeable differences and you said he expected my whole playbook and in the limited time that he had -- -- record in can notice difference in what he's learned you can't. Yeah well I mean you know you when you watch practice I mean you know. -- and -- correct it. So that that's a good -- mean he he's. He's picked up on the offense and has pretty good feel what we're doing terminology. Like city's pro and he's done this before so well you know we we play on them going in in being productive player wears expensive good news tonight. I had to make that decision yet on him he's questionable for the game so. He was out there again practice and today so that all those things are good signs to. It was. Wrong for -- equally. Now I don't know that but. He will be up for the game. But. -- house. Where. There. Yeah yeah they can contribute. And they're picking up. You know with all these guys I mean you know obviously. You know -- their economies for -- as some of the guys maybe with this'll OTA's and training camp that. They picked up but again the ball you mobile we're doing for one game plans not the same as what was world OTA's and training camp so. I feel like they picked up -- what we're doing. And obviously. You know we're going to be count on some of these guys going to be productive players force on Monday night so. That that's or what. That's what we do and in the NFL that's or what their job is. -- -- It. You know I spent a lot of time thinking about. Thinking about the game trying to play games now in -- mind and -- different situations that current game so. You know I mean. You know try to relax a little bit but it you know constantly thinking about. How you play in the game and and react to situations. Or. You work -- Yeah. Hate us and hit it it's a learning process for all of us and I think every time you you get a chance to go to a certain experience. You gain from it. Do I feel like I got all the answers absolutely not. To a I feel like you know. I'm ready for the challenge yet and I feel like thirteenth. So Adams will return punts and -- to. Taiwan Jones and Elliot can I picked up -- hopefully you know -- he'll be turned out. Think the way he's -- and you started it in him no we haven't as we haven't made that decision yet. I'll talk to the office staff. Again tonight in. Will do what we feel like this for this team. Feeling. Yes it was good feel as if so I think we're all excited about starting a new season. And this is why we do this to play games and we're in an -- or woman in. From the location. Practice time and time was anything else he did to prepare us like different tonight than you. You prepare when you're currently practicing here. No no we always did was -- changed times but everything else is pretty. Status quo for what we do and Howard and do it throughout the remainder of the season. It's what. -- practice. What you get chasing get out and get on the there. You get a chance to get under the lights again. You get a little bit more familiar with the surroundings. And think the more familiar we are with surroundings. And playing in that environment and the better we're going to be. And you -- that well. Don't know I don't know not -- on home game mean we've we've come and played the Raiders before -- pre season game. But. But yeah I think you got to take that into account I mean. You know it's no different than they talk about baseball. You know understand how the walls -- ball's -- caramel the wall and -- play those things the same thing out there in the dirt and well. We know that we're gonna have to play on it and not everybody plays on -- so we want to and use it to our advantage. Get them last year there. No it's pretty pretty special. You know the rivalries that. That are here in the AFC west. You know they've been around for a long time is a division that's gone on your -- virtually unchanged for a long time so. It there's a lot of passion in this in this division a lot of great rivalries. A lot of difficulties.
