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.
got the ball to start the 2nd Half. They lined up in a Twins-right
Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 4-3 with Van Noy lined up on the
inside WR and Gilmore on the outside WR. Butler stayed on the opposite
side. They ran towards Butler's side, as Hightower and Roberts attacked
the line. Roberts got to him first, but only tripped him a little. He
dived into Hightower, and Hightower took down.
and 7, Tampa lined up in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pars matched up with a
Nickel, with Butler and Gilmore outside. "We do what we do,"
Butler said. "We do what we’ve been doing and that’s playing
man-to-man, just hustling out there. Whatever the cause is, whatever it
is, go out there and just handling business." Chung was in the slot,
with six guys crowding the line. Tampa ran a Slam left.
took the RB down in traffic by himself again. "Dont'a's a very
versatile player. He’s played a lot of different positions for us: on
the line, off the line, linebacker, coverage, rushing inside, rushing
outside. But I think last night he probably played as many plays as he’s
played all year," BB said. "He was in for more plays and he had
an opportunity to do more things and be used in different groupings and
roles, and so forth. I think that’s, honestly, about what I would expect
out of him or really any other player like that. If they don’t play very
many plays then they’re probably going to play those plays in a more
specific role. As the volume picks up and they’re in on more groupings
and in on more situations, then a versatile player like that would be used
in multiple ways." He made the first two tackles of the Half.
and 3, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Weak, with a TE inside the slot standing
up. The Pats put Harmon four yards deep in front of him. Then matched up
in the same Nickel, with Chung as the Slot Corner. Only they went with an
Odd front with Hightower and Van Noy on the line. Winston had time and
threw over the top of the press coverage. He just missed Jackson 40-yards
downfield. And if he caught it, he was gone. Tampa punts and traps the
Pats at the 6.
lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. The O-line cut the Tampa D-line, and
Brady snapped it outside instantly to Cookie. Cooks made the CB miss at
the line and took off. "I think it was just more about playing our
game and stop letting the little things bite us in the foot," Cooks
said. "[Just] play detailed football. So, I think that’s what the
second half ended up being about." He finally got shoved out of
bounds after 17-yards.
and 10, the Pats lined back up in a 3-Wide Singleback. They showed an
end-around, and Brady double faked to the RB and WR. Then he turned back
to the Defense with Cannon shoving a passrusher past him. The rest of the
O-line stoned the rest of the D-line. Brady lofted a beauty to Cookie
27-yard downfield, and over midfield. He snagged it and ran for about five
and 10, they stayed 3-Wide Singleback. They ran Dion off tackle to the
right. "Dion's always been a productive player for us. He makes plays when he has
the ball in his hands, and he's a guy that has played for us in the
passing game and the running game and made the most of his
opportunities," McDaniel said. "I mean, any productive player
you want to give him opportunities. He's one of a few guys in our
backfield. Certainly, all our guys have done good things with the ball
this year, and we want to continue to get them all involved. So, we'll try
to continue to do that as much as we can." He danced into the
line. Found a lane, and blasted off between Allen, Shaq, and Cannon. He
was met at the marker by three defenders, and couldn't shake 'em.
and 10, Pats stayed Singleback with a Bunch on the right. They ran the
same double fake end around play, only Brady gave the ball to Hogan. But
three defenders were waiting for Hogan on the other side. Cookie also got
called for Holding. 1st and 20, Empty. The O-line formed a perfect pocket.
Brady stepped up and hit Hogan crossing the slot.
and 15, Empty again. The O-line is perfect again. They allowed Brady to
slide up in the pocket where he has Amendola over the middle, but he
misfired badly. A flag hit Amendola. The refs called Beckwith for a cheap
PI. Amendola didn't even know what they were talking about. But it put the
Pats on the 33.
and 10, Pats lined up in a Twins-Right I. They ran a Dive to the right.
Gillislee cutback to the left, and skipped forward
for about 7. "I thought all of our backs gave us production.
Dion and Mike [Gillislee] ran hard," BB said. "James had a few
carries and had a couple of big catches, a catch on the wheel route down
the sideline was a big play. We have confidence in all of those guys and
whichever one of them is in the game they're usually productive for us. I
thought he did a good job. I thought all three of them did." That was
another nice slashing run.
and 4, the Pats lined up in a 2-TE I. They ran play action. Solder got
beat outside. But Brady threw quickly to Develin who turned back too late.
The FS Evans should have intercepted it, but dropped it. 3rd
and 4, the Pats lined up in a 4-Wide Trips-Right Weak shotgun. The O-line
did a good job, Andrews and Shaq doubled McCoy at the line. So he leaped
up and slapped the ball down. Gostkowski hit his 11th straight field goal
this year. Pats-19.
and 10, Buccs lined up in a Singleback Twin-TE left. Pats matched up in a
4-2 Nickel in Off coverage that looked like a Zone. They are in a
completely different scheme from the last drive. Hightower moved up, and
lined up at OLB on the line.
and Gilmore had switched sides as well. "Yes sir, I do. They played a
lot better," Butler said about the defense. "I think it helped
us focus more because we knew that we didn't have much time to prepare, so
you know, it was a sense of urgency." Winston threw to Jackson.
Butler dived in front of him, and almost intercepted it. Great Off-Man
coverage by Butler.
and 10, Twins-Left Singleback. Gilmore and Butler switched sides again.
"I thought he responded good. I'll look at the film and see how it
goes," BB said about the much maligned Gilmore (not that he didn't
deserve it;). "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
Pats matched up in the Nickel with Chung in the slot and Hightower back as
the Weakside OLB. Hightower hopped around the TE, and chased the RB down
the line. Butler got a hand on him first and Brown took down with help
from Van Noy and Hightower.
was terrific in the slot all game. "Just played better. It’s as
simple as that," Chung said. "I mean, [we] tackled better,
communicated better, just really doing the things we practiced and
bringing it to the game instead of just coming into the game like we
haven’t practiced. We played a little better, we still have a lot of
things to take care of, but [in] the end, it’s good." He was
covering TEs and WRs inside all game.
and 6, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a
2-3 Dime with all five guys on the line. They sent four, and Van Noy
dropped. Hightower twisted inside and just got to Winston a second after
he threw, but smartly didn't take him down a little late.
thought that High and McCourty really gave us some great leadership
defensively, and our preparation, and having the right attitude to go down
and play in the game and what we needed to do. It was a short week,"
BB said. "I thought they really stepped up from a leadership
standpoint in that group and did a great job for us. It’s always good to
see. I just wanted to recognize it because I think sometimes you just see
it play out on the field. Obviously, they’re very, very important but
there’s a lot of things that go into how it all comes together and I
thought those two players defensively did a real good job for us this
had to throw short to Sims, but McCourty was right on him and wrapped him
right up. McCourty took him down short to force the punt. But then Bolden
twitched off side for no apparent reason.
and 10 again, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Singleback. The Pats matched up
in a 3-3 Nickel with five guys on the line. Chung was still owning the
Nickel. The Pats zoned it up. Winston hit Humphrey's on a rope. Roberts
was there but couldn't pop the ball out. But he put a hurt on Humphries.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. The Pats matched up in a
4-2 Nickel with Hightower and Roberts inside. Tampa ran the ball. The
O-line won, but the D-line slowed Humphries down. He had to dance for a
while in the backfield. Then finally cut straight up field into Brown,
Roberts, and Flowers.
and 5, Tampa goes Empty. The Pats matched up in a 3-2 Dime with Hightower
looking to blitz. The backfield looked soft like they are in a Zone.
Gilmore and Butler eyed each other from across the field. "It’s a
lot better. We’re communicating better," Butler said. "We went
out there and played with good confidence. As a group, we just had a good
week of practice. It was short, so we just went out there and got it
done." Hightower and Butler back off just before the snap. The Pats
rushed three, but the Pats where behind every one in a very soft zone.
Winston riffled it through the hands of Martin, who would have had the
and 6, 3-Wide shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 2-3 Dime with all five
guys crowding the line with Chung. Jonathan Jones followed the motioning
slot WR to show the Pats are in Man. "I think we were able to hold it
together, play together and come out with the win," Jonathon said.
"I think most importantly tonight, we wanted to limit the yardage,
get back to playing our defense, get back to playing our game and I think
we were able to do that." The Pats brought four. Wise beat the ORT
outside, but Winston just threw before he could hit him. He hit the TE
Brate in the hands.
Chung, who was in straight up Man on him on the seam, knocked the ball out
with a great play. "There's a great example of a guy who really tried
to go out and play a role that we asked him to play in a position. I think
he competed extremely hard. Pat plays really hard for us. He has to play a
couple different positions in the defense and he really attacks
those," Patricia said. "There's a lot of studying involved with
that. There's a lot of position alignments and adjustments that he has to
handle. He had some really good plays in some critical situations on third
down. He some good pass breakups and things like that in the intermediate
did a real good job with the adjustments and the motions [and]
communication. It was good. It was good just to have him be able to be out
there and play in a couple different positions and help us out. I think he
really worked hard to get that done for us. But like I said, Pat is a good
player for us. [He] does a lot of different things and thought he really
tried to step up to the challenge this week."
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 4-Wide Strong Shotgun. Brady had to dump it
off to White sneaking out of the backfield. "I mean, we knew it was
going to be tough battle playing a good football team, on offense and
defense and special teams," White said. "We knew it was going to
be a tough battle. It was going to be a four-quarter game and it came down
to the last play. That’s kind of what we expected." White has
continued his sensational play from he Super Bowl.
and 7, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Amendola beat the LB
on a nice inside out move. Brady touched a great pass over his outside
shoulder. Amendola leaped up with one hand, and dragged the touch pass in.
But they called it another cheap PI for some inexplicable reason.
and 17, Brady said screw you, as the Pats went Empty. "Well,
basically the same thing we've seen from him all year and for many
years," McDaniels said about Amendola. "He's a great football
player and he does a lot of things well: he's tough, he always makes an
impact when he's in there, he blocks hard, he gets open in the passing
game, he catches the ball, he's hard to tackle, he returns punts, makes
big plays in the kicking game, he's a great teammate. There's nothing I
don't love about Danny Amendola. Every time he's out there, you feel good
about what may happen if the ball is headed towards him, and he always
comes up big in the biggest moments or biggest games. Danny's having a
very good beginning to the season, and we want to continue to try to do
that." Brady hit Amendola curling over the middle for the First.
and 10, Empty again. Brady had another nice pocket. "It’s a great
feeling to come in on a short week, play a good game as far as team,"
Cooks said. "It was huge for us to show that mentality, that
character and now we get a few days to rest and get back at it." He
threw it too far outside for Cookie to catch.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a Twin-WR Left I. They ran play action, and
the O-line is perfect. Brady had time to let Hogan run a Wheel route. He
hit Hogan on the sideline at the marker.
and 10, Pats lined up in a 3-Wide I. They ran Gillislee off tackle. But
the refs call an Illegal Shift. 1st and 15, Pats lined up in the same
formation, with the same motion into the 3-Wide-I. They ran play action to
Gillislee that looked like the exact same play. But Brady turned and hit
Hogan, going back against the grain. He caught it clumsily, and almost
fell down with no DBs near him. Then he turned and took off up field. He
was finally straight-armed out of bounds after he crossed midfield.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. The ran Gillislee in the
same off tackle play. He turned the corner and flew into two LBs with some
nice speed. He fell forward for about seven.
and 4, the Pats lined up in 3-Wide I. They ran play action, But no one
blocked the LB Glanton. He rammed into Brady and knocked the ball out.
Will Clarke jumped right on the ball for a gross turnover just past
and 10, Tampa lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. The Pats matched up in a
3-3 Nickel, with Butler on the left in front of no one. They are going
zone. "Playing with confidence," Butler said was the key.
"Going back to the basics. And just playing good football,
complimentary football." Tampa motioned a WR over to his side, so
Winston knew they are in a Zone as well.
ran a pitch. Flowers does a nice job driving the ORT in front of Martin,
but he is finally able to hop around him. Brown sliced in from the side
and took him down later than I though, after Flowers slowed Martin down as
and 6, Tampa motioned into a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. Pats show Zone in their
4-2 Nickel with Chung up like a Sam. Tampa ran a screen. McCourty ran in
so fast that he was able to run past the two OLs, and take Jackson down at
and 5, 3-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats match up with two guys down, and four
LBs and Chung crowding the line. They showed Zone again. Then Chung ran
over late to grab the motion man late So Winston knew they were in Man.
Pats send five, with two Twists. Winston threw a nice pass to the TE
crossing. He fell forward for the First.
and 10, 4-Wide Singleback. Pats matched up in a 3-4, but there might be
some safeties involved in the front seven. The Pats were looking for a
run, and Winston dropped. The Pats brought three, And Winston hit Martin
in the slot. Van Noy and Chung knocked him three yards back. But he curled
back up field and got a few more. Flowers finally took him down.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a Singleback, They sent the TE in motion. Pats
showed man as McCourty followed him across the field. They matched up in a
4-3. McCourty shot the gap as soon as Winston handed him the ball. "I
think High and Dev right from the start just kind of said, 'Okay right
after the game [we gotta] step right into preparation for Tampa Bay and
meetings, film, walk through,'" Patricia said "They really just
kind of took it and said, 'We've got to cram this entire week of
preparation here into just a couple days so let's start right now.' So
that was the start of the week with them." Brown helped bring him
down short to end the 3rd Quarter.
and 2, Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 4-3 with Chung in as a Will.
Hightower and Van Noy at opposite sides of the line. They played run all
the way. Van Noy curled around the TE, dived, and got a hand on the RB's
foot, Then Adam Butler, Brown, and Flowers helped take him down.
then brought in their Junior High School kicker out, and he shanked it
wide right. "I think as a coach, any player you put out on the field,
you have confidence in and you think that they're going to be able to do
the job that you ask them to do, otherwise you don't put them out there.
If at some point you don't feel that way, then you probably need to put
somebody else out there," BB said. "That's really true of every
position [not just Kicker]. I wouldn't single out anyone. If I don't feel
confident in putting the guy out there then I should have somebody else do
that, at any position. That's the way I feel about it. If I put them out
there, then I have confidence that they will do their job.
think Dirk [Koetter] does a great job. He's done a great job with this
team and I certainly would not in any way second guess or criticize or
comment on any of the decisions that he makes; I'm having enough trouble
coaching my own team. We got enough things that we need to work on and
there's a lot of things that we can do better. I'm certainly in no
position to critique anybody else's team. That's not the answer that I was
giving. I was speaking for myself." That kicker cannot be on their
team next week.
