6:43 am
running backs. who is one, two, three, g? >> well, ya, mike, right now you got blount. he's the number one running back, i probably would say wendell smallwood is number two, and then of course you got darren sproles, he's the guy, probably going to be the most productive, can't use him so much because he's so small, and he's the guy for third down, going to watch a lot of passes, humphrey is the young guy who i don't know how he's going to do. he has to start hanging on to the ball. can't be fumbling the football like he's been if the first game. >> don't we also want to see big things from nelson agholor, especially since now he's pretty much all we have returning? >> speaking every hanging on to the ball. >> yes. >> i think everybody wants to see him catch the football. and that's accurate, yes. but, at the same time, i don't want his refs out there at the expense of somebody else. we have to slot position that is open now, because jordan matthews isn't here. so the g's point, you can put darren sproles. uncle put humphrey, you can
6:44 am

6:45 am
(laughing). >> you agree, gare? >> shady, ya, shady, he'll come in, he'll have a good time. see, he will rye i the best time for the guys that are the starters. because they know they're if the going to play much. so most of the time they're just there telling jokes on the side line, looking at the fans, and having a good time. really a lot of times you have your best time as a football player during the pre pre-season when you know you're not going to play. >> now do you look up into the stands and try to find good looking women? >> mike? >> oh, how did you know that? >> you can't knock the hustle, mike. >> exactly what's going on. >> guys talk about women during the middle of the game in the biggest game they go, hey, man, did you see that girl in that front row? >> ya? >> no. >> i can't talk about this now. i got a police play coming up. >> see? ya. >> thanks, guys. >> men. >> thanks. >> you guys, thank you. have a great day.
