Patrick. You got us what brad. What? Alright We’re Gonna Go 1st. Adam texture going at him. Hey Patrick. Um I know when the game’s going on. You’re just trying to do what you can to win and now you’re happy that you guys have one and you’re moving on. But just curious if you have a sense in this moment. What an epic game this was that people are probably gonna be talking about this one for a long time. Yeah, for sure. It’s actually funny a couple of weeks ago maybe last week I was talking to Mike Remmers because he was in the Minnesota miracle and the final play scoring the touchdown, winning the game at home. And he was talking about how awesome the environment was and I was talking about how we had to play with Travis uh and the chargers where he scored but we weren’t at Harrow at Arrowhead. And so to be in this moment at this game against that team and to make a play to walk off a game at arrowhead. I’ll remember this for the rest of my life next to Pete Sweeney. Good Pete Patrick. I was wondering if you could take us through the 13 2nd mark and your thought process on making sure the team stayed focused and and how you were able to get down the field. I mean it wasn’t, it wasn’t hard to keep him focused. We believe. I think that’s the biggest thing on this team is we believe no matter what offense defense special and that we can do the job in order to to win the football game. Um The first player we had Travis, I mean hit Tyreek and he got up as much as you can go down and then played the Travis. I mean it was kind of a thing where he wasn’t necessarily supposed to do that, but after the time out we gotta look at what the defense was doing and he actually said it to me, he’s like hey if they do it again, I’m gonna take I’m gonna take it right down the middle between both the guys guarding me. And um he went up the field and getting the ball and he got in field goal range. So next to Sam McDowell said Sam, Hey Patrick A couple of things with with 13 seconds left, what’s said either either to you or from you to to somebody else in those moments? Um I think it’s just we’re gonna go, we’re gonna go getting full range. I mean that’s all we could do at that moment was trying to find a way to get in field goal range and we have that belief, we have the belief that we’re going to do it. Um If you take it back to the year, we lost the championship game, we got full range in like 18 seconds or something like that, you have to have that belief and if you’re not gonna go down fighting um then you don’t deserve to be here and uh we we knew that if we could just give ourselves a chance to to get in bunkers filled the range, he was gonna knock it in and he did Todd palmer go talk hey hey Patrick and he said that when you went on the field, he said when it looks grim, be the grim reaper, I just wanted to get your thoughts on um you know, Andy’s advice there and what you think of that as a possible nickname? Yeah, I mean jesus um yeah, he um he, I mean he shoots his confidence. I mean everybody on this team, he keeps bringing you confidence uh weekend, week out day, every single day and that’s what he said to me and I mean he talked to everybody said hey we’re gonna go do this, we’re gonna get the full range, we’re gonna get points. Um And I mean he truly believes that when your coach believes in you that much it gives you the belief to go out there and do it and execute it and that’s what we did today. Let’s go next to Nate taylor, good night. In fact I have two questions for you, similar to the L. A finish. I just wanted to ask you, what did you say Travis, what did you say to Travis when you gave him a hug to end the game. Ah same thing man, I just love you man. I mean he made plays um everybody did but guys like Tyree contract made plays when it counted and they get so much attention every single week and then they just continue to battle and they battle and that battle and I mean they make plays when it counts and they did today. I mean the play to Tyree can and they play to travel um those are the two players on earth, they can make those plays and you can say that just what does it say about you guys sort of adjusting to the bills defense and just what was that process like particularly in the second half given you guys got more chunk gains in the second afternoon? The first yeah I mean it’s similar thing. Um They started off with a lot of zone coverage is playing a lot of zone shelves over the top we took what was there? We ran the football, I ran whenever I had the opportunity to um and and once they saw we were willing to do that they had to come play more man coverage is and once they started playing man coverage is guys like Tyreek and Travis and Nicole made place happen. So I mean just just taking what’s there and whenever we need to be aggressive we can always be aggressive. Let’s go next to matt, Derrick, matt. Hey Patrick like Nate kind of alluded to, you’ve had stretches before with just an incredible play but my count 100 and 88 yards passing after the two minute warning and going into overtime. Where’s this rank as far as kind of one of those stretches that you’ve had in your career? Yeah, I mean it was definitely special um, to win a game like this at Arrowhead. I mean obviously Super Bowl was probably the number one for me, but I mean it’s this one’s right up there to, to be able to, to come back a couple of times. Um get get points when we needed to get points, uh score, score touchdowns, get field goal, get in field goal range, that bunker, kick, field goals. I’ll remember it forever and I’m kind of still energy is still going, I’m still still kind of amped up, but we’ve got a big one this next week too. So I’ll be ready to go next week as well. Just gotta get back in that film room. Let’s go next to Sam McDowell Quicksand. Hey Patrick, every playoff game obviously means something big. But this is a team you lost two in the regular season that you had statistically one of your worst performances. Is there extra meaning going out and having a game like that against the defense? That that shut you down last time. Yeah, I mean, you definitely don’t want to lose to the same team twice. Um um, that’s that will give you a long off season to think about. Um, but that’s a really good football team that we’re gonna play when we play in the sec championship last year um and play them now in the division and we’re gonna play this team a lot. Um But uh to be able to go out there and execute and win a game and it’s a great football team. Um That’s a great quarterback and a great defense. Um It’s definitely uh it takes everybody and I think that’s what it did today. Take two more. Will go down in that jury go Darren. Hey Patrick. Obviously you have yet to play a playoff game on the road and be at home. What message would you have for Chiefs fans next week to play the same type of role that they played in tonight’s game to help you get over the hump to get back to the Super Bowl? I would just say that we love the support that they show us. I mean we have such a home field advantage because of them. Um And and then bringing that energy uh weekend week out, especially in the playoffs, uh continue to be out here and be the best fan base in the entire country. Um And uh Arrowhead is gonna be rocking the last jury upstanding grand jury Patrick a few years ago here, brady had that first chance in overtime, you never got the ball losing overtime in the NFC championship. What does it mean to be in a similar situation? Make sure the other team doesn’t get the ball. And does it make you think about that rule at all? Yeah, I mean, it worked out well for us this time, but it’s it’s sometimes whenever you’ve got two teams going back and forth, like you’re going, um it kind of stinks, you don’t get to see the other guy go, but uh, I’ll take the win this time. Obviously, it hurt me last time. Um, and you all you can do is play the rules, the way that the rules are rules are explained and that’s what we did today. Patrick, We appreciate the time. Thanks to join us.
