Absolutely. If you don't go to two. You couldn't be playing too. Different levels of of opponents of old feud between last week Kim and this week. How old you know. Prepare. 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. Or any other wrote that mad about that many points. -- you know obviously I shot a little bit -- you know it and I looked around. I'm sure -- -- -- and the guys you know it won't go out and -- and we do not plan on special also. The gas continue to fire -- the woman that -- not so. Black assailant would turn the page now -- -- -- And when you when you look at Jacksonville loses their. Anything at all there that you can point to visit that gives cause for concern.

If the plant which now that -- got -- -- -- -- there will be on again and got people got out thanks short there is governor gray uniform. Taken short short passes a long ways such an eleven -- to applaud also get a -- and he's athletic ability to think they can do it removed the last. He met a lot of throws on the -- -- outside inside the so there's a lot of good things. When asked about the linebacker unit as as a whole. 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.

They -- -- really hurt them much around the locker remains and I fed assault by Jack tremendous potential that -- And as the leader of this team. How do you get the young guys all on board to -- the same way how the body get them to buy into this one game at a time thing the guy has done so well. As a mom how that conflict. It just continues the stretch that you know. Any given time that you remove it and you know no matter what their record that we ultimately cast will say they'll have a direct result of -- record on the candidates played the task. You know that is now of course again and professional manner and put a lot into it not Internet and. I saw this wanna go back in and focus on certainly we see not just the period is paid to have blown out -- before and the jets in 2010 and then. You know what happened in the in in the playoffs real on the west participated happens all the time. Is it frustrating -- sometimes to two. Answer certain questions or you hear it would you listen to the radio he reached up and newspaper whenever. Sometimes the the over reaction of fans and some media alike. Try to compare.
