You have to split them with -- what you got out of the running game especially. Between the offensive line in what we've heard about the running game through all the pre season the -- to line that killed that was probably one of the -- beyond the turnovers the biggest -- the -- We're ready pursuing company. They get their hats handed to him. But the bigger -- this running game. They've had big plays it's crazy you know Ridley had the sixty yarder blunt had the fifty yard or even Bolden had a twenty something yarder. But if you take those singular plays out they -- and all that good you know last night I think -- had six yards on nine carries. One was you know -- yards a carry there hasn't been that consistency and that's been one of their focuses. And Logan Mankins has talked about it we wanna be more consistent in the running game we know we have the numbers last year but there were times where we couldn't do what we wanted to they wanna be able to consistently this year. That was not a performance -- makes you thinking field. Quick follow up so that lack of consistency amongst guys does that lead you believe that somebody's gonna get. Acts out of those five or that make you believe someone else is gonna stay because they happen people like consistency well. Everybody is kind of assumed -- blunt and -- kind of battling for a job I would throw Washington in there because he has done nothing on offense. And -- kick returns and all that impressed he's Bosnia boost there is that nothing is pre season. And then Bolden last night not only fumbles looked like yet nicked up he was in street clothes in the second half health is always an issue. For all these guys I mean you got Vereen yet you gonna count on him he's been banged up a lot so that running back position is interesting because. On in theory looks like a lot of talent there a lot of options but. Beyond Wrigley none at all that group.
