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.
