Andre Curtis coach Curtis thank you so much for the time how are you. -- Coats let's talk about the second area how -- you guys have been Dolan and who -- A season full of big plays in their game yesterday especially on that goal wise thing. There you wrote the 11 it is in Dayton is you know either -- -- -- country. What some of the he spent most of I've actually been working more with the linebackers this year. This post -- and absent. Will go very very fulfilling its season. We've had some ground saying god has gotten. But is is Google guys start to come come together and that is -- -- Ronald Goldman. There are some good plays in the fourth quarter. Especially the first main -- Malcolm Jenkins out of my hand and Jabari Greer it was just guys that would not comment on the game and they just wouldn't be denied the other night. Now coach Curtis who bring in. You know Malcolm -- -- the Roman Harper is that by design. Is a -- Curtis Lofton now leading the team in tackles but it seems like. That game any game out it did not number one they either two or three that being Malcolm Jake you took Roman Harper -- their run support. Right behind Curtis law in its fourth tackles. The it would. Have to. Pretty active safeties and and then we let you get these guys closely whatever possible. And the -- strategy play making ability. Everybody knows that good defense is usually built up the middle. Because -- tackle Mike linebacker strong -- these Iranian threat as a browse and play it moment won't Harper's. Come along quite well -- -- he's been active and well and he's very -- culpable. And very. Inept. He has an ability to make plays when -- close -- the line of scrimmage. Now a coach cart is looking at you talk about. Because the -- bit now would -- -- coaching duties have been more responsibility the linebackers when you look at special teams contributions. And I just talk about these two players. And then maybe there's even took roles as a linebacker and at the safety. As they -- the team -- special teams tackles that being Raphael bush. And Ramon Humber the same night they are veterans and they are getting it done affected -- but. Is it so much that that's right an account on instantly because. As far as the system that that there latecomers it went really Darren. You know the mini camps and though -- training camp. Well that person. Would normal -- read them let them surprise force. He's actually started picking of the system. Pretty well on defense. And -- and now upon his arrival back here he's been an immediate impact on special teams visa. What we call. It was a major record reviews and special teams in bella very nice job. So being offensively speaking you know -- like that you know Columbia. -- only makes sense to continue to work and continued to build them into neutral zone defense. And -- abortion Bill Clinton's surprise. He's Kremlin may need immediate impact on special teams. And he's one of the you know one of the top special teams that would there's -- football team right now. And the -- you know you learn the system is a little bit different from the system called from. And better each and every day you see him become global call. -- Now -- coach Curtis look at what occurred in the game and album gave the fans heart attack and would you look at that film on that last play it was a 31 situation. Boy you know we get out the hole than. More than -- an outstanding month. And then all of a sudden the -- -- -- call a hole in the historic and a 31 yard line at the 31 situation. And Matt Ryan thrown at the ball and he was able to get behind the secondary that being Roddy White. And it looks like Kate uses this will be -- to -- what happened on that we would a look at the film. Was it a pushover just a bad angle while we almost gave a big play you know -- like. Remember a great -- to -- -- foul ball you know so close. With so far but boy that could have been a particular heartbreaker. To talk about what a -- on -- Well. You know that themselves. Those situations. I'd give them a lot of credit. Because the Taliban elements in the ended down a little bit with this -- With cheap you know we didn't really is that but he and nice job of that. And nothing easy to go to guy. And a good. Portion. And I think in the same town we -- underestimate. How strong that line on the on the run he really let this thing out there. Congressman. One incident down in. Contact. I definitely. -- to receive a portion. Honest and he's not called on the planet game situation. Now courts court of that talk about these couple young guys obviously. We all you know -- Patrick Robinson Jabari rare we talked about Roman. But talk about the progression of Johnny Patrick. -- though there was one sequence that. I mean come on look there's a lot going on and then all of a sudden look according white. A past the pin and then if the third and -- acorn while I was able to come up with a big interception. His first career interception but just talk about. The aggression about Corey were what lighting Johnny packed into what you come -- those two guys. We're 22. Good young prospects Johnny was view last year. And then he had to so absolutely like him come the rookie all over again. Quote Larry. -- has done a nice job wars and you know as well. Coming into the league. And college implant that certain key positions -- medical. And in our differences there is couple you know so he's at marks and down. As a rookie do. It was probably good to see him step in May -- please call more culpable. Apparently haven't really real mind game I became all of the huge interception. On that third down play. Yes in my tackles in Myanmar has put on the middle read. And then package came in the good things. Please those two young players. And do well and they're going -- don't want to watch one. It's the saints' coaches so to almost 31 Atlanta 27 this week's assistant. Special -- assistant coaches assistant second is coach Andre Curtis the coach Curtis saying this year.

Coach Curtis when you look at now on an -- you with the giants of 06 to oh wait it. Do you see some similarities in our defense I mean I I realized you know wicket kind of get caught up in the numbers -- yards but you look at the -- defense has been a lot better the last couple weeks we've got a lot of stretches about given -- points especially that while from. Green Bay. San Diego in Tampa and so forth but he is his defense started to come together now onto it to go a little bit wild and in at 07 season for the that's. It is similarities is seen him now with his defense of respond to get more comfortable with it out there. I think our the one thing that that was and we stalls deepens. A little bit. Become a problem that scheme in different backgrounds and -- her. And you don't think that that of them myself having been you -- -- -- some tough times. I start -- you become more confidently. -- -- in the key. To where you can. Understand he won't be that come along and domestic communications.

The owner came out basically call them out they come I guess they dominated good dolphins team 37 at three. I would expect if open is gonna come out play hard game it would be this week after a 55 point what they allowed yesterday at Baltimore. Is that nothing less than that these guys they have very very talented Ross as everyone else. And that a lot of people Oracle's web -- including Atlanta which is one of the better teams and not the best team. Now we've played this year and one of -- certainly one of the better teams and proposal. There has not been for us to expected. To have their best they're gonna be ready they're going to be excitable plan home game. And -- they're they're going to be looking. To improve this week so we anticipate that.
