I've -- we're stuck out on -- and with New York Giants like this season. Victor Cruz and never get tired of hearing about just I got an exciting hearing February I doubt if you are pitching. To do Hollywood to a non football fan from undrafted free agent to Super Bowl champion to first time pro bowler give -- the -- howry pitching the -- -- I would say you know you've got this it is come from nothing. Whose rise goes through ups and downs and I makes it through it makes to become a champion reach all those things and solid goals. But I think the stories in between doubts about that he -- is definitely gonna make the -- area. Oscar award when he can. At the Alabama so I'll have much of them look better. What's -- what is conversations I had with you this season with -- give -- the hardest thing to get used to was the double teams. If you would have said three years ago the hardest thing you would've had to get used to is too many double teams that you've been like I I need to wake up does. Yeah -- -- -- Clement -- is no way they're gonna wanna double team can light myself on from UMass and all the all the all that good stuff but. You know has been a challenge but I think I learned there through kind of conquer it and learn how to -- -- -- it is. Is just run straight at it and try to beat you over the top it allows him to do that a couple of times. And I your team is very spoiled not only do you wish you were here for other reasons the New Orleans but does not begin the playoffs I know what a huge adjustment that is for you guys. I'm gonna give you magic wand and say the one thing if you could fix something about the inconsistency this year to kind of accept what is -- the Q what was. I think it was exactly that it consistency that think that there were serving games throughout the middle to universities and where. Are receiving corps Eli just weren't on the same page so much of rockaway of the magic wand and put it over our passing game. Throughout the middle of the season I would have to put its always -- -- kind of get things going there. And and pick up our offense a little bit more -- -- at least throwing. Want what is set start because we always hear that kind of thrown around about not on the same page is that. Mentally it's that physically is that communication what if it. I think it's I think it's mental as well as communication I think mentally you have to be into the game into every play. And understand exactly where you have to be in order to be successful. And I think it's communication of the communicate. In the huddle and during practice to let your quarterback -- know you Quebec -- you know. Where he wants to be where you expect you to be. Throughout specific coverages and things of that nature and I think about something with an extra -- You were here last year at this time having to deal with all of this media and especially media day. Is it something that you guys are coached about we got a lot of inflammatory -- lot of controversial a lot of sexy kind of topics. If that's something that Tom Coughlin really coached and preach to you guys that week about. Kind of watching what you -- it. I think he said watch you were saying I I think he said more so it's of the realm of you know you're represented in the energized every time you open your mouth every time you're out on the field every time. There's a microphone in your face so I think just knowing that I understand because Coughlin inside and -- I think we -- just understood is that -- was telephone and everybody respect. Are you a lot of guys who've been Giants for a while Eli -- have a microphone in his -- if you're not a problem that you're into it. Still enjoy it so you're kind of a weird one and I -- Opposite what some people asking questions call all the way. There's definitely some especially in the serviceable you do and especially because -- you know so diverse -- got the Spanish with the you know that dancing in -- than normal questions some games Spanish courses here in this course there. Dancing over here -- all over the place and and I but it is very interesting it can be tough though when it's in the full -- question that to be patient. And relax and understand that's going to be fewer than a ton -- questions at this as a -- that's the phone. We talked about the beginning of your story next chapter if you were going to be writing it. Restricted free agent right now winners the next chapter for you it both.
