If that's why they wrote him off, they put too much emphasis on those things.

You're supposed to say "on average, we got him". But even that's a ridiculous misrepresentation/misunderstanding.

If a player shoots a foot wide of the net on the right, then a foot wide on the left, we don't say that on average, he scored a goal. On average, he got bupkis. And he might need to work on his shooting.
