Ms. Molina in my attempt to ask you about LB Mitchell King and league office the deal for Mr. Phelan I sent my offer for Mitchell King to the league office. I apologize and would be willing to add an extra 100k to the deal to fix my error and make it 1 year 350K for the year.

Sure thing.. but I'm sure the league office will be irritated you clogged their channels with your non-sense.

Great. I'll let you go so you can keep getting your clients work.

Ms. Watson, We did it. I want to thank you for your tireless effort in helping me fill these last ten spots with the budget we had. It wasn't easy and I hope my judgement was right with a lot of these guys but I believe if you give someone an opportunity where there wasn't any they can surprise you. Thank you. Now, with the remaining money, how much would cost to do a fan meet and greet. A small stadium party to have the fans come and meet and speak to our returning players and introduce them to our new team mates.

Ms. Watson, as you know we had some kicking issues last year. Would you be able to get me a list of all retired kickers who would be willing to come to training camp for 500K. If that list is to big would you be able to narrow it down to the top 5 available.

How are you today Mr Summerlin. I called you today because as you know we are almost ready to break camp. A lot of teams are bringing in specialist and retired players to work with rookies and second year players to help better their skill in training camp. I canít underestimate the importance of special teams and a great kicking game. Considering the year we had last year and how so many games came down to Field position and FGís I feel it of the upmost importance that I invest in our rookie kickers. We have some talent and I wanted to know if you were up to coming to camp with us to help these kickers work on their distance and accuracy. If so, I would like to offer you 500k to do so.

Thomas Mazza - Money makes everyone Happy -(250K)
TV Spot
Commercial shows an older gentlemen with a cane sitting on a bench in Atlantaís Centennial Olympic park. He is speaking to another gentleman in a Atlanta Warriors hood whose face we cannot see.  People are enjoying the cool sprinkler on a hot day.

Older Gentlemen: You young folks got it all wrong. These days itís all about snapface, and instabook. Everyone wants everything right now. Everyone wants to make a buck with their face apps and dance moves. They think money is the key to happiness. You know what the key to happiness is, Memories. No money in the world can take away the memories of when I went to see my very first HIFl game with my son 12 seasons ago. Not here obviously, If my memory serves me I believe Atlanta didnít have a team until the 6th season. Yeah, I remember I was able to take my son, he was only fifteen at the time. We sat way up in the upper deck, all I could afford you know. But we had the best time. Now heís grown. I get sad when I think about that I have never been back.
(The older gentleman looks on sadly)

Older gentlemen: Thatís life. Maybe one day Iíll be able to take my grandson, thatís if the upper deck is still affordable. Canít do much these days on an old police officers pension.

The man sitting down in the hood: How many grand kids you have?

Older gentlemen: Only 1, Little Thomas, 6 years old right now . Yeah, havenít seen them. Sonís always working you know. I tell him, Money canít buy you happiness.

(The man in the hood looks at the old man and pulls his hood down to reveal Thomas Mazza.)

Thomas Mazza: I CAN TRY.   

(Thomas Mazza hands the older gentlemen who is stunned 4 tickets) [/i]

The older gentlemen: Well, god darnit, Youíre Thomas Mazza, Qb for my Warriors.

Thomas Mazza:Just tommy sir, and I hope to see you there.

(The screen fades as the older gentlemen is still in awe as he looks at his tickets. The scene fades back and we see the older gentlemen walking out the tunnel with his son and grandson to the front row at the fifty yard line. The older man is extremely happy as he and his son and grandson sit. The older gentlemenís son asks him a question.)

Son: Wow, these seats are great dad, how did we get these seats again dad? You said Thomas Mazza just gave them to you?

Older Gentlemen: Son, that's Thomas ďMoneyĒ Mazza, or like he said. Just Tommy.

(The shot shows the Warriorís running out in the field as the tag line reads)

 They say Money canít make you happy, but heíll try.

Julio ReddĖ Untouchable-Practice hard, Play Great -(250K each)
[
TV Spot
(Opens up with Julio Redd on a football field with some coaches. He walks towards a mannequin wearing a Tommy Mazza Jersey.
Julio walks up to Mannequin and puts a piece of steak on the Mannequins helmet.)
Julio Redd: Donít worry Tommy. He wonít get to you. Youíre untouchable
He turns around and looks at the coaches
Julio Redd: Iím ready.
Julio tightens his gloves and looks on. He starts to grind his teeth making a mean face.
Julio Redd: You ainít gettingí nowhere near him.
Julio makes a meaner face and gets in a three point stance and roarís, are you ready
The scene shows a Grizzly bear walking to the line, heís growling and roars.
Julio Redd; You gonna need more than that.
Then two black bears walk near the Grizzly. Julioís face changes. He looks at the camera and breaks the fourth wall.
Julio Redd: Timeout.
The scene pauses
Julio Redd: See this might seem dangerous, but when you play O-line in the HIFL you have to train for everything. D-line come in all shapes and sizes. LB are no different and each one wants to run right through you to get to that guy back there. See, these bears, we know they arenít real but they were put here to signify how dangerous playing this position or any position in the HIFL can be if you do not prepare and train correctly. Now normally I would line up against D-linemen who all want to get to that guy behind me. But I would rather be going against actual bears sometimes; at least these bears donít talk trash. Anyway, no matter what you do, rather you play football or any other sport, make sure you prepare properly and practice hard so that you can be great. Now back to this ridiculous commercial. You ready bears?
Julio Redd Roars and both the bears and Julio run at each other as the scene pans towards the coaches. We see them flinch and grimace and turn away like they canít watch the carnage.

Coach 1: You OK Julio?
(Julio Redd walks into the scene near the mannequin wearing the Mazza jersey.  He spits out some grass and grabs the steak and takes a bite and chews before responding)

Julio Redd: Iím fine.

(Julio walks off the scene as the scene pans to all three bears running away whimpering.)
(Practice Hard and play Great. Be untouchable)

John Pitts/Erik Pitts-Atlanta Air Raid -(250k) each

Okay, so The Pitts brothers, James Fellows, and Eric Evans all had good PR campaigns and reactions, but the Bruiser Elliott and Julio Redd campaigns bombed hard.

Especially with Bruiser's agent, John Raymond not being happy that we were using a tag line from his other client Waylon Hagan for part of Bruiser's campaign.

Use three words to classify how your off-season went and explain.
Resourceful, Trustworthy and focused would be the three. Resourceful because we were able to acquire talented players like Bruiser Elliot and Dwight Bell without giving up our future. Trustworthy because I believe there was a lot of trust on both sides with a lot of returning talent coming back to finish what they started. Trusting that I can put together a team to get them to the promise land. Trusting the coaches to put them in the best possible position to win and trusting that I will continue to do my best to put together a winning team. Trust is key and I learned a lot from this team over the past two years. Last but not least, focused. A Gm who will go unnamed told me before I started this ride into the HIFL as a GM, get a plan, focus on making it happen and stick with it. When I got hired the one thing I promised my former employer was that I wanted to create a team with a stable QB, a stout running game and a defense that would shut down the air game as well as go after the QB. Hand raised to the mighty HIFL god of thunder himself those were my words and I stand here to today with a team I believe resembles my vision.


Coming out of training camp, where do you rank your team in the division, in the conference, and in the league?
There's two sides to everything. The GM in me thinks I have put together one hell of a talented team that just needs to perform to their potential and my expectations. We have a young team. Young but Hungry. Yes we did sign a group of hungry young men who are dying to make teams regret not drafting them or signing them which I hope plays in our favor. If these men cease their opportunity when their number is called we will be in a good place as a team. As far as talent goes, we have Solid starters on both sides of the ball and a coaching staff that is as brash and full of tenacity to carry us to top of the division, through to the playoffs and one of the top if not best teams in the league. Then there is the former journalist in me that takes a step back and can see if our players do not live up to their talent and our rookies get awe struck by the bright lights of the HIFL we might be looking up at four other teams in our division which pretty much means I will be looking up the number to an Uber. (smirks) Seriously, I think we are a very extreme team, either we are going to shock everyone or live up to the mediocrity in which we have been labeled. Last years inconsistencies will not be tolerated, it can't be or we will fail.   

Do you have any position battles planned for the preseason?  Which jobs are up for grabs and what do you hope to gain from the preseason games?
We are looking to see which players who have not been pegged as starters will rise to the occasion. We have a young Line-backing core that at the moment is being led by Van Buren, Brown and Hill but we also have veteran Mata, Rookie Hernandez and King and second year player Matu'u all looking to get on that field and make things happen. We need guys to punch in when their number is called rather that be for one play or ten plays. We are trying to see which Qb becomes our premiere back up to Mazza, will Michael Ryan step up in his second year or will rookie Jeremiah Kincaid grab the bull by the horns. We have a lot of talented players on our starting roster but that doesn't mean they can't be challenged by someone waiting to step in. Let me tell you, that is a good thing. I have heard that we were to young and that we signed to many unproven and undrafted rookies so we lack depth. Wrong, we signed young hungry players with chips on their shoulders who want to sit at the table and eat with the big boys. So I will be interested in all of it. These guys need to come out here and show, not me, not the coaches but that they have to sow that they have each others back on that field.

List one victory and one failure for you personally this off-season as the GM of this franchise.
It's funny to talk about avoiding cap related issues as a victory, but to me, being able to put this team together once rosters were expanded and not only avoid penalties and cap issues like some of these others team failed to do but to still have some change left and a full roster is a win. But seriously, Keeping our defensive line intact by bringing back Fellows and Shrader and then adding Bruiser, I feel good about that. Lastly let's not forget that we actually have a player who can kick the ball through the uprights now, to me that sounds like some success. Now, if I had to choose a failure it would be not getting this fan base excited by about the upcoming year. I'm human, I hear the talk radio, I read the Magazines and read the editorials and a ton of talking heads are really down on us this year and I find that hard to believe. The editorial that was just released has us damn near the bottom on both offense and defense. I hope this team is seeing that. I hope the Pitts brothers, Mazza, DC and McClure are seeing us ranked so low on offense. I hope Bruiser, Fellows, Shrader, Evans, Cavanaugh, Van Buren, Brown, I hope they are seeing that you guys think we are at the bottom of ranked defenses. I hope this team makes a lot of people eat crow. On top of it all I hear the fans very skeptical. No one is getting hyped for Atlanta football, the fans don't seem to be buzzing. (looks around the room) Maybe this is a good thing, maybe having no expectations will let some of these young guys play loose and free. Maybe being an afterthought is what we need to make the loudest noise. Maybe this wasn't a failure after all now that I say it out loud.

"A lot of insiders have noted that it appeared that Zambrano really struggled in camp, do you believe it is justified to label him as a bust?"

One thing I have come to learn is that no one knows these players better than the players themselves. To even speak the words bust on a second-year kid who had a pretty good rookie showing is ridiculous. But then again, these "Insiders" are paid to stir the pot. The same insiders said Zambrano was one of the most talented WR's coming out the draft if not for an injury and his personal issues off the field. Zambrano played every game and was a model citizen last season, so how inside are these insiders. It's one thing to stir the pot but to throw around words like bust for a kid who contributed like he did his first year is a bit unfair. Why? because you think he had a tough camp, not right. I'm not sure what these insiders or experts wanted him to do. He played on a team that had an outstanding WR in Pitts then we went and got his brother. With all that, he kept his nose clean, and his cleats on the ground and was asked to KR, PR, be the 1, the 2 and the slot and without ever making any noise he did everything that was asked and to add on to that! we also had a combo rushing attack that rushed for over a thousand yards and now he has to deal with some "insiders calling him a bust. Sorry, I won't entertain that nonsense. This kid is on the verge of big things and I hope he's hearing what these insiders are saying and uses it as motivation.

To say that about a second year guy already playing behind two talented players wouldnít be fair to them so Iím not taking the bait. I do think playing side by side of the Pitts brothers will definitely help shape this young man into one of the top guys in the league down the road. For now I will say he has the potential to quiet a lot of nay sayers this year.

Coach, all this talk about Zambrano having such a tough practices I have to ask was it that bad? The kid is super talented. Do you think  having him in slot is beneficial or is he a better two and we swap the Pitts boys in and out the slot the slot.

Shanny and I both agree that Zambrano is pretty much as good as he's going to get, so I don't know that calling him super talented is really accurate anymore. Super athletic, maybe. 

I don't know that he has the hands to be any better in the slot than anywhere else.

Ok, I think you guys can get the best from him. Now talking about the rest. We have a ton of young talent like you mentioned in your training recap. What do you think these items;

First, Sitting Mazza both games and having Kincaid and Ryan starting game 1 and 2 to see who emerges as our direct back up.

Second, I was thinking in the second game only starting our back ups to see who can really step up and give us a preview of what we might come to expect during the season so we know who our 1 and 2 back ups are and who our bright spots are.

Third, Now I know we have Linkous who we signed away from Alabama and gave a nice little contract too but we also have a talented rookie tackle in Roberts. We know Redd has locked down the left side so I guess our actual preseason battle can be Linkous and Roberts to start each game to see who we trot out there on the right side in week 1.

Finally, in your training camp evaluations are we are set as far as starters go or can there be another position battle away from the tackle spot we can get a glimpse at.

Considering we have two kickers, I'm gonna assume Kicker.  Outside of that, Roberts is trying to push Shrader for snaps but that's about it.

Coach, Considering our LB's will have a lot on their hands. Let's talk speed rush, strong side and coverage. When assessing our LB's. Which categories do you put them in?

Hmm, well, after thinking about it, none of them are speed rushers or coverage types, all of our LBs are run supporters.

Good to know. Coach I have been sitting with these stats throughout the off season and I'm baffled. I'm not a coach or will I pretend to to be one so i lean on you to help me understand how we can move forward and be successfull. I don't want to march out there with the same old game plan and produce the same old results. I think we are too good to be under .500 this season. So please help me with this

In season 10 we were together, all of us meaning yourself, Bowman and our core of Mazza, DC, and we acquired E.Pitts I believe third game of the season. Mazza threw for around 19 TD's and 20 interceptions. That was expected from a rookie qb without a number 2 or decent O-line. DC had over 1200 yards rushing and 10 TD's as a rookie and that was with missing 3 games. We averaged about 24 points per game but only won 4 games. Last season we had a better Mazza that went from 68% completion rate to 88%, with us throwing more. Mazza Threw for nearly 900 more yards and 14 less interceptions but 1 less TD as he threw for 18 td's. We had some talented players like Collier, West and eventually John Pitts. WE also had McClure and a talented TE Hanlon. DC and MCClure split to give us over 1500 yards rushing and over 20 td's even though we threw much more but we averaged about 18 points per game. Now I am scratching my head over because that stat gave us only 2 more wins even though we had a top 3 pass defense. So my questions are,

First, what are we under utilizing here? 

Second, I want to make DC the premiere back this season because I also want to balance the run/pass on a 50/50 rate. We need to focus on DC having a monster year to help Mazza light these teams up, having McClure benefits us when DC needs to rest as oppose to utilizing them both and wearing them down both. What's your take on that.

Third, two years with Mazza at the helm, what's your assessment of him. Do we have a potential gun slinger, a pin point dunk and dink qb or a game manager?.

  Well, we haven't averaged more than last years 21.8 points, so we're not scoring more than we're giving up, pretty easy recipe for losing. 19.8 ppg and 29.3 papg in S10.  21.8 ppg and 24.3 papg last year.  We need to flip those numbers.

I think Mazza can be whatever kind of quarterback he's asked to be.  He's not a game manager, but he can play the accuracy game or take it deep.  He's got the make up of a younger Caleb Smoak in my mind, and I see him as our guy.

I don't care about using more than one RB, so if we just use McClure when we feel like it, thats fine with me, but I'm sure he'll have something to say about it.
