Hondo: Talk about your adjustment, if you would please, to the NFL?Â Howâ€™s it going in your opinion? I know itâ€™s been a few practices.
Calvin: Yeah, itâ€™s going pretty good, you know, Iâ€™m still trying to learn the playbook, its pretty tough, you know, still trying to get all the basic things down, all the fundamentals and everything.Â
Hondo: Is it surprising to you, because in college you ran away from so many people? The speed thatâ€™s in the NFL?Â
Calvin: No, itâ€™s something that you expect. You know itâ€™s going to get fast, you know youâ€™re going against the best players, so its something you just have to expect.Â
Hondo: What's it like to play under coach Martz?Â
Calvin: Itâ€™s interesting. You have a lot of terms to learn so thatâ€™s what makes it kind of tough, but Iâ€™m getting it down.Â
Hondo: Howâ€™s your mastering of the playbook going and how far are you through it?Â Calvin: I donâ€™t know how big it is yet. I havenâ€™t gotten everything, but so far Iâ€™m coming along.
We apologize to the great Lions fans that canâ€™t watch this as a video which would be much better for the fans.Â The new recent stupid NFL rules prohibitÂ that.Â So even though you canâ€™t see it anywhere else since Hondo was the only reporter to do it, here is at least the transcript.Â Thanks Goodell.
