CSN Washington dot com. I gotta be honest I looked at my producer Gary Carter you -- there so I think Kirk cousins can make a play here but then you look up at second and pointing. You're up against the 93 vaunted Ravens defense what were you thinking when your number got called. Well I think you try not to focus on those external factors you try to just focus on your job and my job was. To run the play call to go through my progression. Is so I did that but certainly benefit -- professor fears call it. The recovery came in made some tremendous plays on on one leg more lesson. You know just -- the -- the next is trying to do to be somewhat of a robot and just do what -- -- to do. I know this is what you're job is what you're born to do but how tough is it to walk in your cold -- haven't played haven't really. Done much of anything in a long time to get up and that physically make plays. Is typical inside deal I think I can show myself as a much better quarterback if I was getting reps all week and if I was playing from the start of the game to the finish but. This is apathy I have been last year ready and is the best I can do right now and I'm a control what I can control. And fortunately today things worked in my favor. When you're practicing during the week game planning are you. Literally thinking about when that moment comes I have to make sure I'm on my point is they need to make plays. Exactly I have to be ready to go there's there's no excuses you can't say adding get reps -- you can't -- what was -- warm -- -- SN uses the NFL -- -- complaints so. My job is to mentally stay locked in aware that your piece all game long trying to hear the plays and just. From my limited vanish. My in my limited perspective from the sideline tried to read the defense -- -- -- -- that I would do need to play and I think that does certainly well I have to going. Look at the pump fake to Santana maybe drew a defensive back on the on the touchdown -- to hear what excuses. You know I that we didn't see much didn't really try to pump and really feel like I had anything in. Playoff instincts I tried to take off and I guess turn my robot off a little bit and try to make something happen off schedule and Pierre did a great job on covering on his round and it wasn't off schedule played in a -- their favor. I think -- RG three was on the field everyone would have predicted quarterback draw. Not so much and Kirk cousins on there somewhere that was it your choice did you have a choice on that what you think with the play -- -- as well. Cushion and passing is done a great job trying to get my. Comfort level a certain plays but truth be told I'm new to this offense summit trust him. He's a phenomenal job and Robert you've seen now with the plays that he's on the successful positions but Robert -- but. He's also the same in me and down you know the more I'm able to get to know him -- -- office more than dialogue we can have in the right play called that. In that situation was tremendous play call and I just had XQ what what was called. Again what did you see the defense did you know at any moment of his players can work. -- -- -- -- covers and felt like as long as the blocks were made and I could you know move quickly enough I wasn't going to be Robert but as long as I could -- giddy up to me I I should be able to score and fortunately we had some great blocks made in. You know I'm not gonna get there quite as fast as Robert does so I'm sure made a little more nerve racking for the sideline to watch but. We found a way to get in and -- -- spike the ball and enjoyed a moment. Speaking of a guy with a limited minutes in limited reps Richard Crawford comes in as the new punt returner. It's pretty remarkable play he made. They're a great -- get north and south anytime your punt return to get any kind of yards back is a bonus for us in and so first joint testimony get north and south and he's been doing that and obviously when you when you can get north to south to split the defense. It opens up a lot of holes the scenes in and he did that in down. It was a phenomenal player made myself a lot easier -- hit the ball off down the stretch did you look at as he walked off those that he couldn't beat the punter to take it to the house staff I you know what I thought he had I just assumed he had turnaround how Robert how we had won an inside at tackle in the OK at least he is that they handed off so we found a way to get the lead and then mr. automatic car -- -- you know what I just stay away from the guy let him do is staying. And just I don't want to jinx anything. Well you certainly got tremendous performance congratulations and good luck for number was called next week okay thinking but -- CSN Washington dot com.
