Vs Buccs: 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.
1st Half was an incredible success. When you think of baby steps in the
beginning of the season, their defense was great in the 1st Half. If I had
told you this iteration of the Pats Defense was going to hold Tampa to one
TD? You would have said I was a Homer idiot (which I am;). But I would
have been right.
Defense was dominate in the 1st Half. "I'm
just really proud of our football team tonight. Coming off a tough game on
Sunday and going on the road Thursday night, I thought they really
responded with a great effort this week in preparation and getting ready
for the game," BB said. "Obviously, I thought both teams played
hard and I was proud of the way our guys played. I thought defensively, we
responded to a good offensive unit with a lot of good skill players, a
good offensive team, I thought we played really competitively. Certainly
there's a lot of things in all three areas of the game that we can do
better and need to do better, but good to come down here and win. I
thought our team really gave a great effort on a short week, so I'm really
proud of them for that." That Defensive game plan will not go down in
the Hall Of Fame.
it will go down as the changing point in this season. "We're trying
to improve every week. I would say this week on a short week I thought
there were some really good things that came through," Patricia said.
"I think there were some situational things that were good. There's
certainly a lot to keep pushing and keep improving on and that's really
the main focus that we've got to handle. I would say for the most part I
thought on the field the guys were really focused into what Tampa Bay
does, the players that they go to, the quarterback, how they run their
thought the preparation from that standpoint was really good. I think from
a general standpoint of playing aggressive I think was good. I think the
guys put themselves in position getting lined up when you have a week
where you may not necessarily get a live practice in that week because of
the time crunch. Sometimes the alignments or the adjustments or anything
like that it's hard unless you see it live in practice first. I thought
they did a real good job of that and just being ready to go. We've
certainly got a lot to improve on. There's all areas of the game from last
night that we've got to get cleaned up which we'll start that today."
This was the first time they played real NFL Defense this season.
had to bend a little, but they stood up together and held the Tampa Bay
offense to 7-points in the 1st Half. "Pretty much everything. They
had 100 yards that first half, but they moved the ball some," BB
said. "We made some plays and they made some plays, but there were a
lot fewer points. You got a chance to win giving up 14 points when we
couldn't score much. It was one of those games where you got to do what
you got to do to win and we did enough to do that." It is still a
little hard to believe that the Pats Defense won this game.
was the first sign that had a chance to defend the Super Bowl this year.
"They played a great game, they really kept us in it all night,"
Brady said about the D. "I wish we could've scored more points,
offensively, but defense really held their own. You know, we battled, just
couldn't get enough done to ultimately get the ball in the end zone but
I'm glad we won." They stood up after a week of abuse, and showed the
pride it takes to get to the Super Bowl.
is not going to go down in history as the smartest DB who ever played.
"I think that's when you get the best out of me," Gilmore said.
"When I'm following a guy, and studying that guy. I was out to prove
something." He is an elite athlete.
can play straight up man at high level, when he doesn't have to think,
just play. "Yeah, that's what it was. He was on [Mike] Evans, and
Malcom was on [DeSean] Jackson most of the day," BB said about
Gilmore. "I thought he responded good. I'll look at the film and see
how it goes. I mean Evans caught a couple of outs. We were in three deep
zone. I thought Stephon competed well. I thought our whole defense did.
McCourty was involved in a lot of plays, and Chung was involved in a lot
of plays. Those guys did a good job. That's a good group of skill players:
receivers, tight ends, quarterbacks. Those guys are pretty good."
Gilmore was terrific for the first time in a Patriots uniform.
ugly win is when the defense wins the game, and not the pretty offense.
"I mean there is such thing as an ugly win," White said. "I
mean, a win is a win. That’s a good football team that we beat in a
tough environment. I mean there’s a lot of things to correct, but it’s
a lot better when you have a win." On the short week, it is all
mental preparation, because the physical preparation is all rest and
defense played smart and alert all game. "They played great,"
White said about the D. "We tried to play complimentary football as
an offense. We could've helped them out a little bit more and put more
points up on the board. Today they played a lights out job and like I
said, we just have to be better as an offense to help them out." What
would you have said if I told you that the offense would be the compliment
the Defense in this game?
would have said I'm crazy (which I am;). "Those guys played
great," white said. "I mean, we have a good group of guys. We
stick together no matter what. They just wanted to come out today and play
a good football game and that’s what we did." The Defense certainly
did, especially in the first half.
