Along wooded his goal you never know was on whatever you know to get on her annual favorite. Now you don't always Assad is this weekend is being accused me that is the on not never seen these before. There was saying it in the season. You know when when guys sit out like who was talking about last week you know sit two players and I'll get hurt or whatever and and we image that but I just inability of fear and right before. Teams sourcing blares out. In mid Megan incentive package all of you guys voters but that was sick every player that was due to make assertive. How many Saxony. Yeah I did want I have one half let's say intimate. Million dollars while it was broke to the quarterback has a right tapes broad umbrella. Is this fall Turks some metadata not Ben and his two runs the Jack would you like take all night. Let's quit when you put yourself if you know this yeah. Any similar bitch like ages never told us this though now you don't have all these exotic error there was an all you guys don't make this X amount dollars on. On on the I 90% net like and plays rock sketches. You know for. Are all forty dollar ago put it out and like. It's all in a contract I got a story for you globally and you sit him down. They've got someone duels on me make the pins and know what do you know. If it seems absolutely outsourcing and I'll tell you we just feel gates that he is Ian kind of goes a long what you're saying. Giants running back Orleans stark law need a 153. Yards in the final game of the season two or 200000 dollars incentive. He rushed for 150. What what was idiots idiots why. In stark one needed a 153. Rushing yards on Sunday it earns 200000 dollars you never rushed for more than seventeen. In his payments NFL career you wrestle wanted to. So. Now what's must determine its. Butch know what. Is up to his agent not to do this he's that close you've got to go back to every game they've played they may show. That date date may make sure it did admit a mistake on how many yards he hit yeah I don't you gotta get ever did not want to ours only get to. Think a man like like look that she's it would prima. You know paired against against the Broncos rights they let him in there they're gonna let him get the Russians out of zinni Todd Gurley was sitting. I don't know that means for hot of these two well is what is god treasuries but. As it does apply here like probably. To play harder for teams can help bonuses and those records and things like. If the team is off why do you put the teams sit down and you not knowing that you know odds as me Tim Morse maps and argued his motives and wanna sit down and has not yet. That's what I saw on toll agreement which would that yet you know of their day they come I'll say human derivative play maybe you need to get you know fifty yards to go with that. Speaking of another person like that. Jamaal Charles this was his contract situation. You received 2.5 million dollars if you played all sixteen games. They made him in. Active for the last two which means obviously don't placed on two and a half million dollar one of the deterred he was also hotter thousand dollars away from. If he got five arson scrimmage he would get the 100000 dollar whose were also there to get this season at 425. Shocker so over two games all he was 75 yards to play in the two games to get the football. Eighty makes two point six million dollars Broncos make an act that you don't play I see. Well it's really not happy yeah restaurant you went out that's a big chunk of change what it likes to likes his. But oddly enough for half a fact he had left Michael Corbett distributed fallen woman donated all around and did it first went over and touching thing all of this up in brightly their members the members of the us now game in buffalo. Was buffalo and Indianapolis are. At a military that gained all of this to yeah hole and find out if he hit them trying to flattery is gonna miss it. Lionel but he missed votes he missed the Mona useless and a half million dollars of it if it may want to do not neighbors say you've got to get you gotta have a behaviors. Above does it through Google's it's crazy. In his. Right asset in studio would Neil -- that she saw favorite Roxy by the load season are coming up on the other sign that we breakdown chiefs and tightens the playoffs are back in Kansas City. Would Neil Smit an excellent draft. Dry presented I don't think it's from the MVP electorate and studio sixty and Sports Radio. I'm here talking to Neil Smith he's brought to below its season. Neil what's playoff we'd like in the locker room the preparation the practice the buildup the anticipation. What's play off week like as an NFL player. You have to put yourself in a mindset that. Zero tolerance zero distractions. And then you have to go in and put it all Lian. For the unit I mean for the team and as this that's this. More or less what to do do you change what you don't know we can't have slowly do the same things you've always been doing but you got a boo what it in a matter of you know. Now this is what we got to do just you know and then we gotta win yet put district went together. Is it our business is it anxiousness. Like what kind of war would you use to describe the ocean because I understand it's a week to week league in any given Sunday you can always always put this week obviously is different if you lose this game you were season is old. Honest question and do it passed in my absolutely no one wants that Jason that fail and especially you know if you had some success on the season such as cheese. I think that down. Did you look at the whole round ball pitcher of of the playoff. Me and guys. There's been over ages. Aren't going to be back yeah you know why because they had a week off some most of the starters at the week off and I didn't really. Get to get that feel you know any gaming of course the number readying equal to play and you know. But I think that you still gotta you gotta make place in us the keyboard if you wanna win that football game if you wanna go to the next level this is one day you got to take. The task that's in front of you if you don't this season and what if you do. Then you move on to the next week and it's so fun to move on because. At the end you wanna get that one put behind that's the main award that first one is always the main one wanted to put upon. And I think that and everybody does well everybody else seeing Satan and achieves or when it's all game no question as to beat him. And his game they shouldn't happening and only mine but he's still got a while before they. That's where that I ever clutch described from an athletic standpoint was it's not somebody that certainly clutch just that they're able to be. The same guy in clutch situations because it always does extends up right some guys nerves and a lot more on line. What is your switch at 7 am I say did you go you you you do I don't know how. How difficult is it though just to be the same god you were in week five the wanna play don't put to know put pressure on yourself. You know I've you know you can perform. Well why do more than what you actually he's capable of doing what you don't have to do beyond which you do you know saying you just gotta go. Anime thing is what I get into teams sport that I'm always played in my life and it's not like golf. In it its trust the prospect ordered you have to trust. The main. That's next to you that's go to make showed a picture of his job. What sort of articulate young little job and ended it all works together and it comes together and it brings a but if you drop a ball in and child to read MVP of that game. And did you big animals focus on what to dornin and you try to play beyond yourself or. Our our target goal what did you drop the ball he never did this before and it is gonna onto. You know if it is don't turn on your paper. Did you think she's. Think their defense has trust are you seeing that this defense right now there's a good group good form. Noticed he was the running game I mean that's what they that's what daybook on and you don't mustard quarterback. You know it to be hot one minute. And you know to be called one minute what they got a good running backs. Knowing they found that all come that you you know what to run again so that's been I think. The chief accused yield little bit you know that they that got us Opteron and I'm sort of thing same thing over there it's cheap. Is able to run for bonus week. There's no question that they should not win this ball game hands feet down. If they get aren't going to give him running the football. You can't let that are the mention also that DR in tornado and run and I didn't know you musicality and it taken so long stroll down field. Atari. I just can't see him losing all let's come Delta's president. Right now Saucony Neil Smith he's brought abilities and I looked it up your first playoff games against the Miami Dolphins you have one and a half sacks. In the game thank you remind me they're damn regional command never I never second so yeah I'm I'm I'm happy to hear they don't want to have sex and the game was lost ago was as it was it's a holding cell that was a crack all closed when you were lost and Lowry got 1716 and again there were lost that game most reachable until you the keys that gaining status for week and yeah.

Some degree weather and took us down a week before. Down zero beaches now. We had a week of all dean had to be logged down. Something that we in accustomed to when you got a lot of the rest of the week you know which and I just thought that that is the way a lot there are gonna stay home and it's still want to distort don't want to collect 12 o'clock at night to McCain Mac. Which I wouldn't start at 12 o'clock on his site. You know district eight and what bill down and have a security Iran you know if you always do this in this sort of a limitless is get out here what the weather good absolutely sneak out there. I don't remember that one could have been I don't know if it meant their did a lot of things that people the. What's worse the goal of winning or the pain of losing at this time coming YouTube which is opening experience they really disappointing playoff. Exit you've also experienced the highs of winning a Super Bowl like what paying what Jules is a is greater. I guess in and get into the season and once that's common goals tingles. For you know for the human and I promise you everybody wanna say the first thing he wanna do is when a division. And win the division gets into the playoffs and second they wanna do is win in the playoffs to get to adjustable everybody that's in his term everybody gets started his games this season. It is is saying that to their ballclub. The ones that didn't want that didn't go there at home this week watching the one that's out there portal and your team won't end your your sitting there cheering your team more. You know congratulations to cheat now that it's it's a great task at hand that you have to face. And the worst feeling at all to lose it when you're not supposed to lose themselves and danger give people things. You know there's a lot of pressure this is a lot of personnel was meant dissidents but you know sort Alex Novak. Well it should be dumped his play good in the last three weeks yet a week threats. No to something things that you tell Mosher teammates the one that the moment is too big for the the pressure is gonna eat him up because. Does guys over achieve that never been in this situation never been in this environment. I can you sense it amongst the team of the guys that are may be letting all the other stuff kinda get to about the course of the week. While you can because you're not be you know Warren about what the next guys to do you if you go to break he's gonna bring it to the table. And go put it on the field he's gonna put it out there for you in should be got to show up on on Sunday now a force that's gonna have put a guy that got injured. But yet the guys is there that that's supposed to make it happen is the guys is that going to make it. Make it work for you to. Let me ask you this some of the drought here this question of talking and you'll Smith he's brought about twenty sinner about a stats today guys wanna keep your opinion on this that locker. The chiefs have played 46 seasons at Arrowhead Stadium. They had as a mini home playoff wins as the Indianapolis Colts. 4646. Years years and air additive while they have two home wins an air head. So the Indianapolis Colts they have two wins and era as it was played in games at arrowhead. What years did they win the two years that they want him I don't know that you guys one Warren and then we lulls of course who. We lost to beat the raiders in the U want okay. Los Angeles raiders when you because they don't win against the Pittsburgh Steelers yells is overtime. Yeah. While our. Mean I was I was in those days bush at the time involved. So we are to quote Dave Coates of imports Modano we lost a horrible. Now we see here we lost live the field goal game it was called game ever played and articles gave them played in eight B. Once and then Peyton yard paid Medicaid that for a team that came in here one. I was via the laws so you go back to. You got three there. He's got the soda ticket time I'll some. It's into the that's ills brought about the load season and meals it's actually is getting at is getting warmer weather outside you know line. It's forty degrees and expert McCain wins praise in that morning and brutal reign grew delay. But as we that it makes us get excited for forty today. So I put herself somewhere else made it would be like in buffalo war you smiling face when he says it's going to be forty next week it's. Funny because that means that time in light. You know we'll get him on his stuff anyway right. We will Wal-Mart so let's get warmed him. Unlimited maybe achieves ready and he does what I was certainly hope that's the beauty is a season and talk NC from some anger management.
