Hey gang. Here's the second installment of the interview summaries. This one is kind of long and covers the thirteen interviews done on KJR between Tuesday (08/04) and Wednesday (08/05) last week. Like the first one, this one will give the date, name of the interviewer and person being interviewed and then provide a link to the interview so you can go listen to it yourself if you want. I've made a few observations myself as the interviews go along. You all know how opinionated I am so I can't help but interject a few pearls myself. Hope you enjoy.
If your browser only brings up a download panel when you access the link, you can either download the MP3 file and play it with any MP3 player (like Windows Media Player) or alternately go to the KJR site and under the pull down menu labeled "Audio", find the radio show host who did the interview and then access the appropriate Podcast and listen to it online. Windows XP should play the link without needing to download or go to the KJR site. Vista won't. Did I mention I hate Vista? Anyway onward.
08/04 Ian Interviews Rob Sims Link To Interview
Sims loves the left side. On every interview, he has made the point that he'll play wherever they want him to and do his best but he's most comfortable where he's always played at left guard. It just feels more natural to him.
Sims says that Walter Jones is ready to go and is just being careful. Jones wants to be there when it counts and if anyone can get themselves ready to play with a minimum of camp work, it's big Walt.
Rob says that the offensive linemen are very confortable with coach Solari and his teaching of the ZBS. He also noted that he personally has worked hard in the off-season and is in the best shape of his career.
Sims is excited about the running backs they have and thinks they will be a good squad and have a good season. All three can bring something different to the table yet all three can do whatever is asked of them.Speaking about Max Unger, Sims said that he is a smart player who came into camp much further ahead of where he did when he was a rookie. He feels that Unger will push all the linemen and make them better. He said that Unger is going to be a very good player and is already prepared to play in the NFL. He also said that Kyle Williams is going to surprise some people and has shown that he can play tackle or guard. He noted that Steve Vallos is also a solid player. He's known Vallos since high school. Na'Shan Goddard is also playing good ball right now according to Sims and is worthy of watching. Press Read more...below to continue reading.
