Up Ponce returning kicks fans might see you two more value shall we got opportunities in game one of the pre season week one of the pre season returning punts. I gotta think that that's one of the toughest things to do a whole sport if you're trying to just deal the parts knowing that you're going to get hit. Where when you do immediate what what is it about fielding a politics that is it what makes it special is it that I appreciate it what's key. For you was a punt returner at this level. Oh well first of this is knowing you're gonna be here this as an out Mombasa in I mean but the first thing is is our own. You know been able to make good decisions you know it back there. You know as a kick returner punt return of the main the main goal is to come out with a bar in those cities have position of the bombing the good field position for the office so. The main thing is you know it's his ball security kiss and a bomb making a good decision. Whether it be fair kids are taken in the I mean it's a lot of factors that come into a bush uses passive be. You know he's have to have the feel and make good the seasons and I mean you know the vision and and run and you know behind the blocks this business support of you know being around him back with me Obama set up the plays this is do office.

I want to thank you had a return for a special with the saints correcting me that feeling had to been incredible do you know joining colleges and an amazing feeling destructive to do it the pro level. Don't you can do that's gonna give you certain sort of confidence that you that you can. Be that kind of special playmaker at this level. Leo. Three of my rookie year did army no idea if the kind of give you a confidence boost and I think he kind of gave you know our return team a confidence boost. And you know it is just allowed us to to know that we we are able to make the play. So every time we get the chance come out here we you know we need to focus been in try to make their players are so many teams play now intones what do you you're not on one of those he sounds so. How much practice goes into when it comes to wind condition did you just practice a lot. Outside as well literally I would have to think this has to be one of the pop for stops in the NFL when it comes to measuring the wind off the lake in and that sort of thing. Right I mean is definitely. You know learning experience for me. I'm but I was a muzzle our car plus you know outs. A homebody you know being in the NF this is is Selma different level you know the kickers upon as a lock you know there are a lot more better than Mallorca I was so. Just coming out every day. Pranks and hard you know taking rips it and just trying to get the most out of each rip. I think is helping me become a better retirement you know being outside kits implies is that from the overall improve my game misses have look at it. Marcus fans and players alike are learning new rules when it comes to kick off returns can you explain these new rules on the kick off. Does what you -- how you interpret it how it's meant to make the game older safer. I. But I think Martin take on it is day. They're trying to reduce you know a lot of the collisions and you nudges to shot making more say fan and that's what I like you know I mean. A rule you know the rules are you know kind of a headache when you have to learn a new rule from year to year but I think you know is promote safety in the game and that's the most this the most important for. Now as a running back that you Delorean helmet rule could get to a troubled mean how does that change your style as a running back gate you know I I've been kind of joking with other players asking. Is that is that dive it dead player is that still would be called is that still something you'd have to work on the and now getting to that pilot getting dirty with your head up their rather than going straight and. Yemen has some there's definitely some you have to work on you know Rome and between the chances I think is going to be hearts it's you know. Guy's gonna lower the live and visit some we have to work on and again as far as safety so. I mean it.
