Default The Atlanta Journal-Constitutions Q&A with "Pope High’s T.J. Yates"

Q. How much did going to Houston right after the draft and during the lockout to work with Schaub help?

A. It helped a ton. At that point, it was me, Matt and Dan Orlovsky. We were at Rice [University] three or four times a week. The best thing about Schaub was he never hesitated to stay extra, come on an off day when it was just me and him throwing routes. He was always teaching. No matter what we were doing, he was always teaching me something the whole time we were there. Even during training camp and throughout the season he never hesitated to teach me something or let me pick his brain about anything he’s thinking or anything that he does. That’s help tremendously in me learning this offense this fast.
**
Q. You grew up the first part of your life in Indiana but were you much of a Falcons fan when your family moved here?

A. We were big Falcons fans. Everybody was. That’s when I was in middle school and every single kid I knew had a Michael Vick jersey. That all changed when I got drafted here.

That's very noticable. Hopefully we've struck gold with the young lad.

All that talk about Schaub teaching. That's some serious team chemistry kind of stuff right there. I'm very much looking forward to Sunday.

Q. Did Jake Delhomme practice today?

A. Yes. Jake is awesome. The first five minutes I was in the film room with Jake he was already telling me about stuff he knows from playing the Falcons when he was in the division with Carolina for so many years.
Found this part interesting. Hopefully it will benefit him.

Hmmm... When Yates was talking about the Atlanta D, he said something to effect of "we have to effectively run the ball and throw down field yadda yaddda"... Throw the ball down field? They gunna try and light it up?

Fantasy Alert lol

I liked this one.

Quote:
Q. Did the game slow down in the limited time you spent Sunday on the field?

A. A little bit. When I first went out there it was going 100 miles per hour because we were in a two-minute drill and I got rushed right into that. As the game went on you kind of start slowing down, running more run plays and going at a normal pace. One thing that has really helped me make the transition onto the field, every day on scout team for the past 10 weeks, I was going against the No. 1 defense in the league. Being able to get reps with them at their full speed every day just makes the transition that much easier.
I know it wasn't "amazing" or anything like that, but I think that is what gives us the most hope. He looked like he belonged & the game wasn't too big for him.

The Atlanta fans comments are even better than the article itself.

I honestly think this kid is going to SHOCK the football world and Dismantle the Falcon secondary on Sunday. He couldn’t be more lucky than to be playing against the most clueless NFL secondary in the history of the league.

Falcons 17

They sound alot like us lol. Well not so much about the defense this year but just their general comments.


I at least already like them more than nearly all of the Aints fans. Ugh they're close to being the worst fans in the NFL.
