Differently if anything for Jacksonville as compared to how you prepared for a percent Cisco. -- -- beyond what you on Oakmont anywhere you know let's just in the other and might as you can't that we actually. You know we dollar settlement each and every game -- think that since I changed the pace of success that after the law currently have. After they went to -- offense so. Now that put a lot of focus in on Jacksonville and that's where it used to be. How stunned were you initially when the team was down by you know Blake early in the third quarter. You know you're down you're down 31 to three you look at the scoreboard I -- -- most of -- oh my goodness does not used to seeing the patriots trailing at home.

What they need to do to get better last that they need to play a little bit better up the middle to help -- the second or more. Our allotment that -- that are now would try to focus our. The first law communication and -- on the same page Iraqi says being able to hit it out from across the middle. We'll would discourage some of the close enough to help -- out.
