He built rivers distracting you think -- I'm gonna lose a job again can you really relate to Alex Smith who started brought him.

You know obviously that was controversial at the time you know which -- do you go with -- you've got kind of the young talented -- this is only get better with -- and you've got.
You know this this veteran got Alex Smith -- NFC championship game here before but.
