Rod Streater's story is like a Rocky movie
Not too many undrafted free agents make their NFL debut as a rookie on Monday Night Football.
Rod I know you're you're from New Jersey which you're a Philly guy he played two years at temple and when people in sports think about. Sports in Philly thing but the ultimate underdog role Rocky and you've been undrafted free agent rookie crack in the starting lineup on opening night I mean. What was that vibe like we just getting out there on Monday Night Football and starting NFL football -- felt good you know come from a trip to -- I mean. Felt -- come out there and as soon as you have opportunity to play here. You know I did last game but he is expected him to get picked up by anybody so just to come home Monday Night Football starts -- blessing. Is there and we really go to put into words exactly what that felt like being on the field feeling that sold out crowd seeing the people that are out there -- national cameras on him. No words to describe it's something that. This is. So when you're out and playing catch your first ball the nerves go away or to the -- up a little bit more. They go away against those down and eventually you'll you'll you'll be out this is football and so fast. So that's one of the things that a lot of let you talk about -- Margaret he's definitely just the biggest change. Is the speed of the game what did that feel like even Europe. It was pretty fast replacing medical affairs that you look at defense and by moving around -- -- it. Become members this football team. Were you able to do that I mean after catching that first ball we able to just focus in and in and how were you able to do them. I'll let that occurs kids are fumble and of course it would mean thoughts about -- -- ahead is he got -- it on me act today to say I'm doubtful -- remember he did this off season so just the team do you did. Talking with Carson Palmer earlier he he said that he loved your your spirit your heart your fight and at that fumble was actually an experienced play where. He guaranteed if it happens again you're gonna go down and you and in I think anybody that really saw -- play saw you were trying to get that extra yard you already got the first down on third down. What lesson you learn from that at the get the first guys that I work in extra yards to those -- or no CC so hopefully it's. He -- a streak in the league's. Out of those links feel out there for your first ever and if Oden got me good Maria's not so Malays. It's yesterday today -- I feel so ready to go. You guys might actually having some from the receiving corps Jacoby Ford is is lost for awhile haven't that the foot surgery. This week but you're getting there is more back most likely for the Miami and how does he affect that room -- that wide receivers group mentally room but when you guys are out there on the field. We've experienced the list and give great. Seven bat speed everything. -- experience that we just sit back. On the team from the reps start to sit back and watch what he does is that and everything. And as far as that learning curve is done I mean how. Were you surprised yourself I mean one of the biggest that's -- thrown around throughout the pre season. Was that you had nineteen catches as a senior at temple yet eighteen in the pre season and didn't have a single one in the last game at Seattle. How do you wrap your mind around that from that to do that relative lack of success I guess I engines catch in the wallet in college to which you live in the pre season. You know temple recruit well we ran the ball a lot so. I was used to always blocking well coming in today and it you they throw the ball more so you got to prepare for anything you never know we numbers will be called these guys go out there is no. Note please note that the ball becomes the anytime. Going back -- junior college is a -- you actually played safety to see your defensive backs you not afraid of the contact. And end the the big. Story the big tickets were Theres always -- DBs is that your -- DB because you can't catch the ball. You know if you catch the ball you view wide receiver is -- a lot of that that trash talking goes on back. Went out and indeed that room you know that's that's where -- -- over -- because you -- exercise and it's kind of say accident. It's really going to. Government Shaughnessy give you the ingredients I guess it's ambiguous yeah. And that's that just goes back to that whole sports story again about being a Philly guy and yet you got to know -- I got to know. And to the fans want to get around those Rocky steps help with us is pretty intense is good -- here feeling they see you hit the rocks. But before that the got a trip down to Miami wouldn't and what are you looking for out of out of the Dolphins. On the got pretty good secondary one -- has allowed ninety depressed he's pretty go aggressive so. Look for a tough game and -- what they give -- our our best -- thanks for your topic.
