Inning what you expected -- a little more little less of such build up for a rookie quarterback coming into what to expect. You know it's. Started out incredible what I expected. I was able the get aggressive things. Pretty quick and that's thanks in part commercials -- -- great corporate corruption and all of these of the quarterbacks. And piece it all together. It's kind of nice because for position that should have a lot of animosity in a position that's very competitive with the three horse race right now with Q Byron Leftwich and and -- -- seems like a nice golf fraternity with a victory actually. In. Actually forward -- Johnson and Jeff Johnson right. No I mean they're they're all great guys and this is a lot about the type of people there aren't that. Even though that they're competing with me. Still and we there's no fun no hostility. And resolved learning and to better together. How much have you been able to pick Byron sprain in terms of being in the same situation you were no three being a first -- -- that. I mean we've we've talked a lot. When have you about that situation or. For the -- -- lives will mean Byron. He's been in our league for a little while. Those -- things were little bit and trying to come together much I can from. That Bryant said the hardest thing for him wasn't the football. Terminology of the playbook that it was almost like that was his.

And Clippers just -- big chunk out of my I'm but but so far it hasn't happened films keep my fingers currently good. In terms -- if you direct or in terms of where you -- when you start the season. Do you have any expectations of them and I know what Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco kinda threw a curve at the trend all of a sudden they can't look what happens if you throw a guy in early can work. -- they had tremendous tremendous years and you know what those two guys did. Who's almost unheard of in Roethlisberger. Had a similar seasons in his rookie year but. Mean at seldom happens but they definitely razors of four iron and two guys doing the same seasons. As. It was incredible so I mean. My job as a football player at this stage my development -- its try to become the best player I can be and whether it's week one.
