It’s hard…just to practice what they put on their bodies just to sleep at night.just so we can be there for each other.everyone in that room I hope you feel the same way about this place. To be honest, as a leader, it pisses me off.

Adams shrugged when asked if players “got” McDaniels’ system.
“We don’t think, ‘What’s he saying?’ or ‘I’m against the grain,'” Adams said. “We just do it when the time comes.”
“It’s hard to know what some people are doing…just to practice.what they’re putting in their bodies just to sleep at night.just being there for each other.” As can be…same for this place.To be honest, as a leader, it pisses me off.”
