Vs Titans: Part I
off I just want to thank all the fans of this site. I have been
promoting my books for sale primarily on this site. As a result, I
have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
Pats were forced to receive by the Titans, and started out slow. They
went 3-Wide, and faked a couple runs. It turned into Amendola trying to
turn the corner. So on 2nd down, Brady went under center. Dion, danced,
dinged, and jiggled for a few. Then Brady hit Gronk heading outside for
the First. He almost reached midfield.
Pats lined up in a Weak formation. and ran a Dive. The O-line got some
nice push on the tough Titans D-line. They crossed midfield and went
Empty. But Brady had no one to throw too. Then Brady misfired to force the punt.
and 10, the Titans ran Henry. Brown, Harris, Chung, and Guy stood up to
him. So they went Singleback vs. 4-3 again. Mariota dropped and hit Davis
on an easy throw outside for the First.
and 10, Titans stayed Singleback. Pats stayed 4-3 with six guys on the
line. Flowers went low to trip up Henry on a Smash. 2nd and 7, Titans
lined up in an I. The Pats brought Harris in at OLB in a 4-3 with six
guys on the line, and a Chung in the Box at ILB. Harris Grabbed Henry
behind the line, and held on until he fell down.
and 7, Titans motioned into a timeout. Then motioned into a Bunch up
4-Wide shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 3-2 Dime, with both ILB inside
the DEs. They got great pressure. Flowers and Butler flushed Mariota.
swooped in and sacked him with help from Flowers again. "All week
we've been studying him, studying how he scrambles and studying the
offensive line" Wise said. "So we knew if we crushed the pocket,
he'll leak out and we can make plays." That was a great rush to force
Pats worked their way over midfield passing the ball. "The first two
drives we started a little slow, but then we picked it up after
that," Dion said. "We just had to settle into the game and have
everybody calm down. Once everybody settled in, we knew what we had to
do." The run was getting stuffed by the tough Titans defense.
the Titans D stuffed the offense. "We just stuck to the plan and kept
fighting and grinding. We knew it was going to be a long game and we had
to fight for four quarters," Amendola said. "Playoff games are
tough. And teams are playing tough. And we're happy we came out on
top." The Pats were forced the punt again because of two great
defensive plays, and a miss throw by Brady to Gronk.
got the Titan's offense rolling. "They were getting us with the run,
so we calmed down for a minute and had to realize what types of runs they
were hitting us with," Ricky Jean-Francios said. "Once we did
that we started knocking them around, and turned them one-dimensional. And
then they had to pass the ball." Then Flowers forced an early throw
that was defended.
ran to the 45 on 3rd down to keep the drive going. "Just keeping
[Mariota] in the pocket. Be responsible, don't try to get all wild and get
over the top or try to shoot up field," Francios said. "You got
to rush somebody like that responsibly because a guy like him can just
break and just go and run." They didn't keep Mariota in the pocket
and 10 at the 45, the Titans went into a 4-Wide Weak. The Pats matched up in a
3-3 Nickel. They ran toss. Chung made Henry go further outside than he
wanted. "To me, the focus was tackling him. I think up front, our
guys always do a good job of defeating blocks and making it tough inside
to run the ball," McCourty said "But we knew with Henry,
obviously he's a huge back but he does have the ability to bounce out and
a couple times he did bounce out." Butler and McCourty swooped in to
cut him down.
and 7, Empty. Pats went 4-1 Dime, with Chung in front of the Bunch on the
just stuck to the game plan," Wise said. "Coach always said to
do our jobs And we had to keep doing our job and do it better. And that's
what we did all game." They ran up the line, and Guy and
Harris took Henry down.
and 3, and the Titans lost their OLT Conklin. "When
somebody gets a group sack in our group, it's a group sack because
everybody has to do their job," Van Noy said. "It was fun
tonight. We kind of show our defense and the offense played off each
other. That's Patriot football. It wasn't perfect but it was good."
The Pats need to overload the Weakside.
matched up in a 3-3 Nickel. With all six guys on the line, and two guys
right on the OC, looking for a Dive left. They sent five. Marquise Flowers
dropped, and leaped up and almost defended the pass. But ex-Dolphin
Rishard Mathews caught it for he First. Flowers tripped up Mariota for a
little late pressure (or just a little late;).
and 10 at the 30, Empty. "First, it's playing well on 1st and 2nd
down to get to those 3rd-and-longers," McCourty said. "And then
we just try to make our coverages hard to get the 1st down to force them
to check it down. And then, like it's talked about earlier, relying on
rallying to the ball and tackling. If you can make them throw it short,
and make a guy try to break a tackle or two, that's when your tackling
shows up, and we did a good job of that tonight." The Pats stayed
with all the guys on the line in a 3-2 Dime.
sent three right up the middle to stop Mariota from bursting forward.
Mariota couldn't find anybody. As soon as he saw Guy slipping the ORT he
threw the ball away, which seemed very smart to me. 2nd and 10, the Titans
motioned into a 2-Wide Strong Shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 3-3
Nickel. They ran the option and Mariota kept it for the First.
went Singleback. The Pats D crowded the line at the 19, in a 3-4 with
Harris in at OLB. Henry burst through the line. "Shout outs to the
defensive line: Ricky, Lawrence [Guy] and Malcom for shutting down Henry
and shutting down the whole running game," Wise said. "When it
came to 3rd down, the pass rushers started doing their stuff. We just
crushed the pocket down and made plays." Guy hogtied him down.
and 6, Titans Bunch-Left Strong shotgun. Pats went 3-3 Nickel with five
guys on the line. Mariota threw a perfect pass to Davis. He held off
Butler with one hand, and pulled the ball in with the other.
Pats allowed the Titans to out physical them on that drive. "I
can't even really tell you, to be honest. I just know they were hitting us
with runs here and there,"
once we got a hold of it, it was controlled and we kept them
to, if I'm not mistaken, 65-yards
So that was a good day." That did not continue.
