At the stats and you 41% of your career catches have come on third down. 46% of your career yards and you've averaged nearly fifteen yards per reception on third down. I as Damian Miller said if you guessed his average yards per reception on third down what would be and he said maybe six or seven. And it's twice that like that's a crazy number for average yards on third down reception what does that say about your game. Are under is. My career. When it. In the short break right. And dirt in it and a quarter picture. You know he equally as the quarterback and not the right term or third video you know keep you know. You know they're there or corporate or.
