I speculative show live down here at Gillette Stadium it is indeed patriots Monday time for our weekly interview with the coach of the New England Patriots. -- coach Bill Belichick brought you by Verizon Wireless America's largest the most reliable. Wireless network afternoon coach -- on them pretty good excellence the be friends and he does not reduce it by heritage as. So are there he's doing there Fred stock the -- too much that's been going through dozens and -- medicine gruesome through wannabes who for why. Do you take -- take something like that obviously. Defense played well again your offense seemed to play better yet you leave a lot of points out here in the field how you take something like that is just a work in progress. Well I think every week. Thanks to work on and things that you do -- -- want to reinforce and those things that you -- -- as -- you need to improve on. -- -- sister but a lot of positives in the game and the only things that -- -- Work on do better -- coach better execute better all those things so we've. The two films and now circuit rated for the ravens and sure some of those things will apply and some of them will be some new things Paramount home runs was that it in the game planner -- all the way. Let's say it evolved that way you know we we always don't of the game trying to be balanced and sometimes or. More balanced than than others but it was as good yesterday we get some production early in the game running the ball -- couple shortly urges. So I think gave everybody good feeling about the running game and open up play action passes was -- the running game so with. It was good complementary game force offensively. Go to -- for a second it goes -- -- on the field cruises fourth down one point four line obviously. Does the thought process of people want us through what was going four year old -- for an -- -- -- that's correct well it. I think the most important thing when you may make a decision like those who want feel confident about the play and no it felt good about the play. Than give it about field position but but felt good about the play and and the job that we've been -- offensively and and we just. That in -- in wanna give on the ball back. I mean ever do but. -- felt like we could. We could make that yard you know I think -- if you go for that situation you gotta feel like. You're gonna you're gonna score 975. Yards away that's not the first thought in -- this foreign. Duffy thank you you're not gonna make the first -- possible and plummet but if you feel like you can move on score. And I did feel that way that's that's while -- do so would you wanna get the ball back to. Now Ryan and company and we just needed few inches and in the room with a bit about the play so current. We're talking about as the play was unfolding because you've always said that the number one thing. When your priorities list in that situation is really like -- play but in this situation. Wasn't it riskier than that no you must love that plus. It was a pretty confident that play it was gonna work for. Yeah I'd I'd I felt like we're gonna pick it up and and Mosul closer really not -- going to be you know metal -- there in -- got a good block on linebacker. I'm not sure why it while -- gain a little more than we did really Kazaa Phillip we are -- good. Habits on the defense with you know hard runner runner in in San remorse a guy always falls forward and and gets you know gets the next three or so. That was closer we thought would be -- Online as Leo. Psychologically we don't want you restart your part to -- them with the ball. The balance of the game it's not slipping away from refuses to. Have -- superiority but. When stuff like that happens it's such a big lift for the please call guys away we'll goal for a defensive if you're gonna stop what it brings team. Those who works at a button. And what it doesn't. But should this not too often divisive as this is -- situations were not not all that gets on you wanna do every week it's just. This we need very much and -- we can get it so when -- -- -- -- it seriously. So your vodka the signals Jumbo size of people don't all the time and they never go for it. No -- -- you'll be happy with the -- situations here as opposed to the week before wasn't too. You have -- -- was second we gonna Hirono -- the penalties we have -- -- penalties one on the punt team. And one on the motion penalty there on. Yes. So that you know I was real good you know any time you can. Play pretty -- free. That that that is you know keeps you moving in the right direction offensively and and doesn't get the in the second chances. It's a defense in the tickets I was that was very there was surrogate. They supplies we have blitzer puts the few times a couple corner blitzes -- primarily and -- blitzing team. I think they did about what they normally do that they give -- little bit of pressure and they like to bring to a aside and the habitable zone. An and indexed it and there are lined a good job picking up onslaught and a couple times got protection changed to handle Oden and some of those will this -- in the running game. So it's not quite as obvious but but they did pressure on couple runs and you know but we where and we handled those fairly well on the we did a good job of front prominent and the backs did their job on -- backup -- their. And -- Those very -- on the running game offers a one was it real good movement on the dollar -- push him into the you know the -- so linebacker so there was -- slips and drive them back. They're nice ways to run. They did it backs for most part got a chance to run downhill they were -- -- the dodge guys in the backfield and and all that -- build some momentum again in the line scrimmage and and you know Fred Lawrence. And Kevin it's and all of them in a ram with -- power and and and where to get the -- down in the mix here -- them for content so it was good. We so -- a lot on Gonzales but he was getting help we -- changing things up constantly was Gonzales seeing different looks and that help. We we Dolan. You know a decent amount of the time. There were times we -- them double there are constantly zone coverage and and we it is played zone who ever came to McCain to but there are times socially and some critical situations in the red area on third down where we wanna make sure that we we got good coverage on so we we -- Obama than it usually rent was involved -- that. And quarterback buying coming in underneath rating quarterback rating. Come to a conclusion. But he he wasn't getting clean looks cut down field would seem like he you know first look was taken away and he was frustrated after they -- had a good game plan. What was a game plan for -- and how do you know what to take away from initial staff. Well I think when you play -- falcons three things -- have the most concerned about is is the running game with turner. The and then passing game with Gonzales and and Roddy White and they run different passes there and trumpet as is thereon. A lot of boots but the main those two guys there are a big focal point of the passing game and -- he's got do their job on them. And for the most are we didn't you know Jenkins is good receiver and in the and -- content and they you know the controllable guys that. Those those two guests that done a lot of damage in the first couple weeks of the season Roddy White that a lot of damage last year and and also the case. In pre season when. -- white and it's also were in there they were kind of go to guys in the passing and so we -- Turn it it to the joke on them. On the bench yesterday that as animated as ever receive -- Tom Brady publicly after which of course mr. -- miscommunication where everyone -- it was all the quarterback receiver not think. Would you what did you say when you really went over to a mission and to view of invention. Who's -- do you know to control him he was very Florio there. The structure and well I yeah I think when you. -- any time you get down in the red area and and don't score a touchdown Caro is sold disappointing offensively you know competitively it's coach's player you -- it audience on the so -- Try to talk about the things that we felt like would. Help skated in the next time we got them. Will it sort of was a surprise scratch on Sunday morning personal issues or. You related -- the -- tool. Mishap on Sunday morning and then. And it was. Not. It probably accurate that is correct yes but it was here yesterday right it is. In this moment ago about -- there's a story out now and obviously as agent wants to keep the the story private. But as far as you're concerned right now he's back and everything is satisfied. I think what people question was their disciplinary action taken was announced and now but note -- -- that was -- disciplinary that he he physically. This wasn't it. No coach or the defensive backs now seem to be playing. On the same page looks like there's more -- closing on the ball pursuit of police of this coming as it progresses. Most residents is back on -- -- I think it tickets you know you're you're excuses should get better on a weekly basis doesn't mean. You know you you necessarily play better as a team all timer you whole team the less points that's you know the other teams are proven -- I think were proven our communication I think we're proven general overall execution are. Marines -- techniques or our use of lever region and you know the help that we haven't pass coverage. And we need to keep working on it's -- on and in the did a good job. You know outside and and then -- parents -- in the game and some or. Subs the fences and some -- inside you know those those and brand and those guys in they held up well but. -- increasing improvements with food you're getting. This particular -- is not a good job force here really has the authority played well last year when he and the opportunity plan fortunately missed. The last couple games and and and then this year you know he's he's that it could camp could pre season and that he's played it well you know is meant a lot of places handles the signal on some of the charts. In -- front seven their line of scrimmage and its market Iran's oil is that tackler. -- pretty good field passed the fence and and pass rush. He is on a feel for every play in -- released on good job. The -- like there was a lot of turning around and talking communicating between the DBs and linebackers. Sometimes it can be confusion sometimes you just be communication wasn't so which of most of the history. Well there were some situations where they'll buy their formations when -- -- bunch people up -- closely together particularly on third down. -- a lot of times they had the taller receivers within maybe three or into the offensive tackle our. And three on one side than motion two by two on the other side that so we're just trying to get. Here communications straightened out on that list you know who was two and an even though Gonzales is a -- and he's he's really receiver and try to make sure that we. Everybody is on the same page that wasn't really. They have any communication issues on the fence in this game and it was a hard game because they use a lot of different personnel and and they moved around you know this couple times that it. You know we we weren't. You know he's part of the you know that the signal call you know. That I was involved in on sideline. Or you know something like that was too much that they put a lot of pressure on it was in the team like buffalo that. You know basically came -- and line up pretty much in the same formation most of the time mrs. This is off her surprise or go to pick bull sharks don't feel. Well I think they were they they had a couple teed up down there in Meriweather did a good job of of -- over the top special of Roddy White but you know they have opportunity get downfield. -- -- Jenkins they hit that one on the sideline noses with terrific throw by Iran apparently had great coverage compliment. And I Jenkins this. You know made a one handed catch on the outside right on the silence -- play. You know -- caught that touchdown there that you know fortunately it was called back on the offensive interference but. You know I I think that when they who -- FL experiencing coverage outsider we -- pressure and they they tried them -- Quick two part question Joey Galloway are concerned about are you about him and -- part of that is. Going Greg Lewis what exactly was about him to give draft -- -- but what about him that what did he bring to the table. That -- you believe it could help this team. Why I think there -- a lot of players that. Aren't on this team that could help this team -- you know I think that we had to release several players at the end of the year or traded a couple of intimate that the final cuts -- right around that time that. That if we were allowed to keep sixty players they would be on the team and they probably be contributed. Unfortunately have to you know go with what the roster -- -- than. And have to make your game to decisions based on that so you know. Given the whole situation. Everything a receiver manners really lot of moving parts and and are also is the whole. You know. You have to think about the entire you know team at just the receivers but how that affects other positions and where you can have other -- You know in the end all those decisions are just based on it will we fields that's for the team. Certainly -- trade a player like Seymour. He could help -- issues no doubt about that but you know you you have to make decisions based on. You know with what he feels the best for the team and and not just this year but also you know to a certain degree you know. Not the word in -- -- program here but you know if you can keep your -- on what's on the road to -- so. Was a tough decision part of the. -- -- Play like Gallo are coming to completely different system really it was meant different routes and do different things we've. World the last few years would have had to get acclimated to this type of offense. Seems that he seems to be have been a little bit of difficulty we don't we don't -- -- normal play but it seems like she's not running used as. Quickly the route so dropped -- passes and not been replaced is that how to throw guys from establishing a certain systems -- wanted to come to this and get adjusted. Oh yeah I think anytime a player comes to a new team and you know it. Speaking specifically of the patriots that. There's there's always an adjustment period and sometime this longer than others and and others don't think there's anywhere religion no. What that's going to be you know Ramos came here and say that the pretty quickly in other players of common not it -- -- -- that quickly or in some cases no. So they you know not not really walled -- at all so. You know it it's really it's hard to tell it's how that's gonna go but but you know the thing that I would say is that. The most important thing is that. You know -- -- working together trying to improve it. Not just new players but -- players. Players that have been here and players that the and we just have to. Collectively as as a team just do better job than our overall. Design of the poison and execution of the places and and just be a little bit more efficient and that we saw a little bit more of that on third -- this week. And we we need to do better job and in the red area and -- -- -- downfield throws a couple of shots down field this that Weaver. Really close on that in big plays and we just couldn't quite connect on and so we've you know work harder trying to make those happen if we get another opportunity -- Talk about Randy Moss did you detect that he was having any issues at all with -- back yesterday seemed to have a terrific game though there are some observations apparently the equivalent. Quite a few well I didn't see that maybe use our sidelines. What are Randy had a root began out but he did in anomaly perceive in also. You know made some big plays force on third down that a good job blocking. Like on Kevin strong play their two minute warning you know Kaman and minimize all your Peterson. We in them in about 1213 yards on right. A two minute warning there are so but he did a good job. You know caller on two passes blocked. And he. Stiff and sore today luxurious like on other players so. Don't know that anybody can in the played in the something. But it could job forces -- -- -- phase of the game news -- that you know we we gave gamble to an accuser that. In bonus and it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Because people were talking about it -- here. Was it just dealership in slowing down and routes out there that he was giving up but certain routes and you were kind of explaining to us. That in many cases it's a change of speed there are certain things that he's designed to do out there. And you were talking about how great he was in how he presented other opportunities -- you on the field because of what he. Did you explain that again because this seems that it is criticism it's elevated. The game ball went to Randy Moss and there are people apparently. Critical claiming that the guy was a no show yesterday in this case I don't you know -- what they were observed. Can you explain that what you say what you said lactic -- you obviously know what he's supposed to do we go. Wanna we've got -- yesterday. We we had a lot of players play well. But you know we've. Sometimes selective view guys that really stand Alan you know. -- have them sent them game balls and yesterday offensively it was for it and entering Indianapolis. Well in any case. You know there. There are times where. I mean to you know first or just the way Randy plays his his -- style. You know he he's a long. He's long in his long legs and and he doesn't turn him over real fast like. Wes Welker Troy Brown or somebody who's who's currently the -- Takes 45 steps in and Randy takes maybe two steps and they -- same -- distance of provisional and Randy in just don't think -- -- As fast as the shorter guys whose turn over quicker but then when you watch that I run with them. You know -- can't keep up -- so. He's got a deceptive gate and I think that that is change of pace is hard for for defense of factory it's hard as a coach sometimes to read. You know when we played against them and and try to you know coach -- defensive backs dole. You know how he's run on routes and how we set them up and all that it's. It's if he's deceptive and I think that's one is that strikes -- that he uses the recipients of this guy up and -- -- -- -- -- like yesterday for the snow slowed up. -- that course up and he just took off. Yeah he is very good that it is very good at it downfield plays of you know going. As seed and being able to accelerate and run past the guy and and you know who's behind the fence to three times yesterday. And it's it was dismissed on couples -- place so. You know that's that's kind -- his file and but I don't. I think he plays with good effort at the close of the toughness he blocks well for receiver. Coachella receivers and the -- well. -- -- affect our receivers overall no hostile can be pretty in the running game and he does the job. So the trained. Of this report the pro government employee. And said that Randy was talking on -- have -- place could probably be mistaken. On already played well this -- -- played -- and then he -- -- -- time after time -- time you know include -- last play of the -- on fourth and one -- And Ian in comic connected on little route adjustment their corner was off and what is your notes -- at that out tomb and there was an easy first down on fourth and one so. You know those those are plays it to them. It's smart being aware known situation and and being on the same -- -- quarterback. And the -- opportunity. Does sometimes make hard plays look easy in and take advantage opportunities and a rainy today just anything Condit constant. Who's -- going to be three weeks or six weeks four of -- wolf forks. Oh plus all of the injured. Overtook resources -- -- for free. Or you just give -- And you'll see you know -- in practice that -- practice tomorrow soul -- but he is on Wednesday and as assess the current players in his game with some bumps and bruises and we got to practice on Wednesday cool -- -- out there and see who can do what. -- on the practice report and go from there. When your vehicle that big display in Tobago -- -- moment what if what. If Joe the back of came into play pretty well good quickness and ordered ever got some place from you know -- -- and then and unlike Wright played in their monthly -- plays insiders -- Thought overall defensive line you know that -- You know we we rotate some people and there haven't -- responsible the but they -- -- pretty good against it's a rootkit running game in partisan very very physical and interns that. It's nice to break welcome back we'll look at this week's opponent the -- on the Baltimore Ravens come up next with coach. -- accurate depiction is a patriots when he relies on here jets Gillette Stadium with the coach Bill Belichick in the course this week. What do you say to. -- go to was produced -- -- jets registrant we wanna do just. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But. It's interesting -- with with rice McGahee in Washington on the home apparently there's well Baltimore. They're scoring a lot of points right now that on the top story teams. In the league is Joe Flacco that much of an influence does he change in this this entire office around right now. But think he's final lot of confidence this year it's. It could be if you know he's a very similar Matt Ryan accurate. Makes good decisions lot of poise in the pocket for young player. He's got some good receivers Todd -- and of course Clayton. And there's some masons so Kelli than good job Foreman is a good backs so. You know they they move the ball around a similar to Atlanta they were a lot of different personal groups lot of different looks lot of different formations. You know. So flawed theory for their -- he does a good job he can manage all that he's probably a little more athletic than that -- you know runs runs fairly well. And he you know pocket and not these look Enron that he can Mr. Big difference from master's office this whose office -- to see a more willing to. I think they were. Less willing last year to open it up to the period they have this year but that -- necessity to -- -- -- hasn't been style. -- it was Paula. You know I'm in I'm not sure about that I think they're confident their offense they're confident with. Football flakus -- and doing different things and and he delivered forms and surely gonna keep them. These -- a lot they throw the ball to and in the use McGee in the red zone. That pretty much other work -- yeah you know they they mix those guys and a little bit and -- -- -- -- are very China he plays on all downs and Andy's. Good on third down and she drew -- in that you know he's like five so game -- a.'s -- like that. But I think he's a better receiver and and he's a better. He's been in the passing game than than Jones-Drew and Jones tremendous little bit stronger but low but lower body strength but. You know crisis is -- Quite the Kevin falcon a passing game but maybe Kevin all fish you know that that type of player. Very good runner good vision good instincts good hands good receiver. So doesn't have the straight line speed. You know maybe some backs but -- slope enemies does nada. He's not for four kind of back. Maybe a little quicker than he has -- very good vision good balance. Can do to a lot things -- -- personal weather and in on the hazel bigger. Probably has maybe a little bit more straight line speed and but the McGahee can't plan third down prices. McGrady accessible illustrated he's not -- Rice is nifty we're very neutral face Roger looks really cool draster -- -- now it'll -- to move and Panama Canal. And you can -- McGee's final hole and then it -- -- follow through it. I mean that -- crisis summit and quickness like cabinets that ability is making as miserable in the short space -- offensive line. Pick it up big offensive line. In analogue a high picks there you know -- and -- tackles and Chester and and grows their garden and of course that the paper it's senator. It was very experienced player inside there and there there. And they're operating very athletic and and they can they can run and pass block ericsson's first thing updates on the line. The go to new mood the fourth quarter of two whose whose first year with the team through and I think -- Madison. And when they were in the same defense. Pretty much in the workforce and fellow similar at that they've toned it down a little bit from some the blitz packages a little looks at Ryan ran but the let's say that it's it's similar but not not quite -- Exotic as some of the stuff that Ryan -- list last week -- -- that that's the personal inquiry it's tough to change you if you wanna change all know once. You have a personal it was set to is Ryan's mind set to that -- significant. -- they did this seem like their little. You know -- less inclined to run from the exotic blitzes that -- but they you know a lot of the same. Cast the characters there you know they can they're very good up front you know -- -- comprise sudden Kellie Reagan. On the edge there with Johnson and silences. In great pass rusher. Portrait loose in the middle. Entries. The big factor on everything. -- -- watch -- for him at the part of the field -- agency you know -- Fabian Washington car comes in on on the nickel situations. And do their job there were three box or -- if you don't. Well he's he's -- brings that he. He sees excellent. That he can do so many things forming screen a -- part of the field deployment coverage. These explosive with the ball in the sands and seems like he ends up with a fair amount of time. You to think he sings well extremely well and as fast and very fluid. As tough kid can tackle and it's simple it's got great instincts great feel for the game back there he's. He sees a guy you have to know as a quarterback they -- or he is on every snap -- I don't know where he has does you know pay attention you know. Of the -- but that doesn't. Hopefully wide receivers over his reading guys even like Polamalu is a special safeties. What's additional pressures on those receivers that they have to be aware where he has at all times because there's so special quick. I think it's one quarterback and the receivers that the receivers run their routes based on the coverage for you know the the look that they get and if there's an adjustment they have to make and they they make it. It quarterbacks and be careful because of that doesn't matter what the coverage is that if Reid knows where the ball's gone he'll jump and he'll leave his responsibility and and analysts say guesses -- -- -- anticipates and but he usually right. You know some guys guess and and and most of the time they're wrong these are guys that that anticipates and he's almost always right so. He is very interest that he's a -- guys -- impact Fuller who still have. Politics. Looks like that -- elections -- -- -- we made it looks like he was just for regional and for one that yeah off on fourth down. Right but he committees you never comes off the field either mean he's out there for all all down and distance personnel groups and all that. Very instinctive again similar to read very instinctive seems that no no with the players -- times for the ball snapped that's great. Nose and anticipation for the ball and and course great leadership out there and that are aggressive and and passionate playing style and think though all the fans know feeds off that as they -- and you know -- national -- how does that help. That you played the jets two -- your little personals different and you said they're not quite as exotic as what Ryan -- out there. The fact that you've seen it two weeks ago so you know little primer on it plus you're playing at home. So you're not dealing with the noise factor as well on the communication issues. Well but let's say the big difference between the jets and in the ravens is just the personnel upfront. In the ravens' front sevens. Spybot as good as it's gonna get you know with. The players they have up there they're they're big they're physical they run well. They're very harder on against they can rush the passer. They bullets they're they're tough matchups. So. I think that's really you know with separates them from probably most of it before instantly in. You know -- in the back end there you know with -- that. That that -- -- lot of other problems in the passing game -- the -- the ball and it's you know a lot of time thrown against these guys. I don't know if they need to bullets while. Not not that they helpless they do bullets but it isn't like they need to blitz to get pressure they get pressure with. A price in the -- in and so senator Johnson. Barnes and all those guys they think it'll offer for. That was my next question if you don't have the bullets and you can -- -- the front four or five. You save your ability to to -- real flood zones of extra dvds. And eight and they they get quite that pressure with the forest there ever is gonna freedoms we expect. Regardless turn to -- -- from one injured problem. He is -- force is that he's an enormous man and he started moving area flavors size in the eighties to look I would think that we've watched them. One around -- yeah so what he has off the ball change direction he's very powerful and and Korea but it. He mentioned it you sign up rebels Syrians we just looked them up the the Internet he doesn't fit my screen -- sandstorm and -- it is a man out is again not a mystery this guy's -- 67. What's what's the way. I don't it's. If he fears it would come what are you wearing a Monica just 300 not producers like up to 300. I was surprised coverages drawn at -- To go stances and great list is something we've been working on for a few days here since -- and the end of the week we worked amount spent some time with salmon and where it will work out something last night. -- So you know we'll put a minute -- at the one group and NC goes. And you know again if he's -- these big player. Got a lot of power. As in open with the Oakland Eden and Korea -- guy -- -- and soul -- parents. There's you know opportunity for him here. Particularly for for the states who would you prefer is a perfect you're spokesperson for I don't think it's a -- Spoke -- -- there's not enough fat -- rezone is a big guys in his eleven point oh god coach that size and thanks Orlando brown. And then you know that kind of epic. -- at the -- an epic. Gus was like in a while ago. -- pretty enormous. No generally if if you're enormous interest in the useless with enormous secure movements much different story is an almost gets dropped down pretty easily. By defensively offensive -- but here jot it already has always like those giant guys you're away about one big giant Alves can move -- well. Which is still not block the -- out of -- couldn't see anything. Most of those guys that that can't move aren't in the league wants and that that are in the league. And I heard this thing my. Second year in the league and a and I think it's true the bigger there are the hardest hit. He's originally from which other self earlier -- three games -- 043 games so it's a small sampling. You guys have a 77. More place. Out here on the field which is amazing because evidently a lot of turnovers. Ignited by -- defects which would probably count for for -- number. Is that. A positive but -- also a negative and that you look at that and you see that you're not getting into the and so you're leaving too many points out there and feel that the red zone really right now. Is preventing you from taking that next big leap. That's a lot places three games over the seven. Yeah well that's again that that the number one thing offensively is this points and score and so. It's not time possessions and the guards its atomic -- Hammond and so. You know if we can score from further out. That'd be great you know it's not about run a lot of -- it's -- finally -- on the ends and so. You know some kind of combination between in big plays that's in the running game more downfield passes or whatever it is and and and then we do get down there if if they kind of bleed and you know let us then and there were able to move the ball down field that we can close that long ago. You'll find a way to -- -- those less -- -- get it in and so you know -- you know though the number of plays is a little bit misleading but. It is that and I'm not deny and it it's just don't think it's necessarily a function of but good offense than it's just a function of some circumstances I'm not sure what they're really. As. I wasn't sure that it was a good thing because you'd you'd think you. You know you'd be scored a lot more points if you get that many opportunities pursuant the defense as a force that many turnovers in the first three games that's an average.
