Allen: 'We've got all the confidence in the world with the guys we've got'
So before didn't practice today Taiwan Jones did not practice on the plane did not practice. Jon Condo did not practice on -- -- did not practice. Limited practice. Right. And -- wore out portions and Richard Seymour. Full -- brands are difficult period like it. If -- injury. -- the he's got a fracture of the schedule. Don't know how. I don't know. Well I mean there's there. Come on here. Training camp and then obviously -- new guys. But I feel pretty good about program right now apparently did a nice job and in game and I feel them home -- -- there -- -- Actually answered it perfectly. I thought he did a study did a nice job you know giving it one week into the into the field so. If he's fit into the grass so I think if we did we keep golden boy and we feel more comfortable with -- -- -- -- in there will be. -- -- And if you hit kind of can't play. Well we sent a guy the rest -- Who would we we would anticipate. Trips. I'm sorry yet. And on the political process yes. He's involved in the process right now -- -- that's gonna go all the way up until. You know while Saturday you -- we we know Q or were there in the eastern potential. Different is that skill set. Do you regular season. Did indeed a big deal it's totally different. Your regular bettered that Pebble Beach shot. One and -- I feel. Players that. Yeah I came in the day after the game in the schools or -- that or not practice today. It day to -- thing that. By the state personnel -- made -- a different kind of team -- Oh well yeah we played against him last year but you know I've said it too much at that time the ball. But it. -- 43 scheme it's a little bit different there that are very different sentence very heated. They're very static it's wrong they've been in the top five I think it is in run defense the last three years ago. That's something they do exceptionally well and then you know they've got a little bit of pressure package that makes people. Houston as the -- in. Theory it. If it is me. Like the first you know. Especially if -- in its running game. Well I think it's important. That that's -- we do it all. It. So we gotta get the running game going. The that. We'll be able do. It's it's obviously it's a challenge this week it. Very good run defense that. Guys who. Were your impressions. Well I think. You know they did some nice things in the game in the -- They they got all of them had her down there and upward in the night and told him like the situation happened to us. Relief or whether it's San Diego so. They're they're they're they've got talent on the girl that the team. Reggie Lewis obviously -- Bulls player. And and on the back field and in there available pretty well so. It'll be a challenge just like it lightly but. Bill and use. -- You I think he's real talented and he's obviously that -- really Smart and I. Of course that's so. No I think he's I think he's a good player. You know he was. On the other Samson to -- a little bit them tipped passes and interceptions so. And I'm sure they they talk. Tried getting to improve on some things that he can improve on he'll be a better player in week two than it was a week or did you follow them a lot because he would. Was voted in as many years -- you know wants to play and I was impressed with -- team. Playing and that's what we've done in the -- so. Right. No I mean what we're we're up early in the war. It's early in the morning and practice. Start in. Minutes behind schedule and I don't. -- yeah. You know he did answered yes. Okay receivers like. Five as the number that we had intended to take it. Diseases program right now. -- I think. Well yeah I mean you know. Think -- secret we feel like waited for him about offense that hopefully that -- There's a lot of different ways you can do that. Obviously. Won't be more pressure or. -- -- The defensive line rotation guys expected. To see -- lot of snaps that he did play practice. -- Some snaps as it. You obviously you know. When you really take into account Miami Heat and you know we're gonna have to do the job rotation he was desperate. Keep them where they can albeit there's this fourth quarter. So what to do it it. Cars that yours. There's. You -- Ball. Don't know -- -- listened that when you're cold plays you have certain things in your anticipate that they're gonna do. In your anticipate that your going to be able to feature certain player. But they may not do exactly what you thought they would do that play so -- that goes through his progression. And defense filled in we're -- -- you more clarity about how long he might be I don't know. He's obviously out for. Were you bigotry and I don't know exactly what that time frame it. But it didn't know it's no transaction. Well we have today we haven't made that decision. You know. We talk to doctors believe was this morning and right we got out on the practice field. So we haven't had chased it back in there and discussion that that. They said that they said he -- well. Didn't see -- along. What does it. As I understand the way it's it's the -- sprained. That he had last year at the same. Exact injury. They expected it to get better. Or at least eight. Okay okay. I know I mean I think it's I think it's still. Still battle. And end it'll probably be a battle you know throughout the remainder of the season. That's really kind of the way we like it. Competition brings out best.
