9:15 am
very inefficient on 3rd down. so it is important to get going early they had another key 3rd down same drive again, boom getting down deep in st. louis range and again, another one, rex to santana moss, and again 3rd downs pretty big time. red zone, can't do that any better and moss professional, gets it down, that is the good rex we want to see more of that rex let's look at the bad rex. >> seems to happen alison we don't know why but second week in row just doesn't see a linebacker the linebacker slides underneath. >> how do you not see him. >> great question i am sure rex wants to know how come i don't see him. when you look at this replay itaccentuates the point, no pressure, great pocket in front of him all kinds of time to
9:16 am
make the proper read, and he doesn't. there is the linebacker sliding underneath, with two safeties coming in. forced throw he doesn't have to make. the good news, he still gets the win he can learn from those mistakes without having it cost you. >> if we can minimize bad rex and have like 85% good rex we don't want any. you are going to get some then we are in good shape. >> let's here from mike shanahan and good rex. we did some good things, we didn't finish, and the key is, to keep on getting better as a football team, play your best football in september, october we haven't done that hopefully we will get better each week. >> when you get a victory you have to appropriate the things you debt -- appreciate the things you debt togged those 17 points, no doubt we can improve and will improve but we are 3
