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 lined up to start the 4th in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. Brady hit Lewis
sneaking out the backfield. He ran around an LB, and fell forward for a
few more. "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," McDaniels 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." 2nd and 3, Singleback.
The Pats quick snap it and Lewis ran a Smash, and flies over midfield for
and 10, the Pats got up to the line quickly again in a 3-Wide Singleback.
They ran a play action. But Andrews got beat. He was suppose to pull to
the backside, and blocked the backside DE. He could get over in time, and
the DE hit Brady. So Brady had to try to hook the ball over the DE, and it
fell well short.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. Brady handed it
underneath to Lewis, but he was caught by the SS Conte. He tried to fight
through but couldn't. He fell forward for a couple. 3rd and 8, Pats lined
up in a wacky 3-Wide Pistol shotgun, with two guys in the backfield with
Brady (I have no idea what to call that thing;). Brady hit Amendola wide
open over the middle.
blitzed the LB, and Amendola just ran behind him into the open space.
"Danny's a great teammate and he's a great team player,"
McDaniels said. "All I know is that he's ready to go each week. He
always does his role to the best of his ability, and he makes an impact
for us on offense. So, I know he's doing a great job for us. Obviously, we
love having him and it's a great part of our job to have an opportunity to
coach guys like that." That was a big 3rd down conversion for him.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. Brady handed it to
Lewis, but he is swarmed over by a host of Buccs led by Hargreaves. It was
about a ten yard loss, which essentially ended this drive. The Pats were
forced to punt, and Slater downed it up at the three.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 4-3.
Roberts blitzed right up the gut, and also most sacked Winston for a
safety. Winston was just able to throw it away, before Roberts crashed
into him like a freight train.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 3-3
Nickel, with Butler in Press and Gilmore back in Off. Winston had too much
time. He finally threw it underneath to his TE Brate. Gilmore zoomed in
and took him down.
and 2, Tampa lined up in a Bunch right Weak Shotgun. Pats matched up in a
3-4. The Pats were looking for a run. Winston hit Jackson on a Slant, he
ran for along time. McCourty finally took him down forty yards later.
and 10, Tampa in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun, with the TE standing up as well.
The Pats matched up in a 4-2 Nickel, with a Chung in the box. Winston
threw quickly to Evans underneath the zone, as Flowers and Wise got up
field fast. Gilmore helped him out of bounds (a little late;).
and 2, Tampa lined up in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. The Pats matched up in a
3-3 Nickel, looking like they are in Man, with Evans and Jackson on the
field. They double blitz the LBs inside, as Winston handed off to Sims. He
squirted outside, and Butler slammed him down just past the marker.
and 10, Tampa in a Trips-Left Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 3-3
Nickel, with six guys on the line. They sent four. Brown swarmed over the
ORG, and got to Winston as he dumped it off to Rogers on a Screen. He
danced around Chung and took off. McCourty and Butler finally shoved him
out of bounds.
and 10, Tampa lined up in an H-back Singleback (they like to line up their
TEs like H-Backs, crunched up a little off the line). Pats backed off like
they were in a Zone, as they matched up in a 3-3 Nickel. They ran play
action, and rolled Winston off to the right. He tried to go deep to
Jackson, but then dumped it off to Evans underneath the zone. Butler and
Chung took him down at the Ten.
and Goal from the 9, Empty. Pats matched up in a 3-3 Nickel with McCourty
up like a Will. McCourty sticks with the TE Brate as he ran into the
endzone. Winston tried to throw it to Brate.
McCourty leaped in front of him and knocked the ball out of his hands.
"We didn’t play perfect," McCourty said. "But that’s
the thing. We don’t have to play perfect all the time to get a win. Just
play smart, be on the same page and not have mental errors. I thought we
did a better job of doing that." That was a great play by McCourty.
and Goal from the 9, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Strong shotgun. The Pats
matched up 3-3 Nickel with five guys on the line. Flowers flushed Winston,
and Guy almost got him as he stepped up. So Winston had to take off for
the Endzone. Van Noy and Marsh brought him down hard.
and Goal from the 3, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun, with
Trips-Left. The Pats matched up in a 3-3 Nickel. Winston took off and
scored after a flag was unfurl. The Refs called hands to the face and sent
and Goal from the 13, 4-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 2-3
Dime with all five guys on the line. They send all five, and then Van Noy
followed the RB out of the backfield. Hightower stunted inside, and
flushed Winston. This led to an overthrow way out of the endzone, and
forced the field goal attempt. He missed the friggin' field goal again!
That is six misses over the last two weeks.
and 10, the Pats lined up in an I. They ran a Smash to Gillislee. He
angled forward for about five. 2nd and 5, Pat lined up in a 3-Wide Strong
shotgun. They ran a Bubble screen to Cooks. He powered over one DB, but
two DBs quickly flew into him.
and 7, the Pats lined up in a 4-Wide Strong Shotgun. The O-line gave Brady
plenty of time, but he couldn't find anyone. He finally had to take off,
and had his helmet hammered off well short to force the punt.
could have gone for the First here on 4th and a few, but BB decided to
punt. "I thought that the wind was a crosswind. It was blowing from
their bench to our bench. I don't think it was really favoring one
direction or the other. Maybe a little bit towards the pirate ship end,
but it seemed like mostly it was blowing across, but it was gusting,"
BB said about his decision to punt here. "It wasn't consistent. It
would at times die down and you wouldn't feel much and then other times it
would kick up and was much more noticeable. I think that's always the
toughest situation for a field goal kicker. And it’s tough for the
punters on the drop because you think the ball is going to drop flat but
it gusts and then it might not. Then you have a hard time hitting it
properly on your foot.
don't think it affected the passing game too much. Those balls are a lot
lower and are less affected by that type of wind. The kicking game for
sure. And then the way they had that field marking there too, kicking off
that flag where the field is dyed, same thing in the end zone, just a
little different surface than what it is on the grass part of it with the
paint or however that's done. It's just not quite as consistent of a
surface there all the way around. Yes, that played into that decision a
wind, the distance and the surface all combined. Look, Stephen's kicking
the ball great. So he probably would've made those, but if you were to
miss one there then you give them the ball at the 42, 43, 40-yard line,
and then compared to being able to have an opportunity to down the ball,
let's say around the five or so. You give up 35 yards of field position.
That's what the risk is for the three points. But when we gained that,
five or six yards, there on the last play to get it from the 35 or 36,
from a 53-yard field goal to a 45-yard field goal? So it would've been 53
to 47, right? That was a big five yards in the decision process." So
that was how he made the decision (I just though they wanted to pin
and 10, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Strong Shotgun. The Pats matched up in
a loose 3-2 Dime. They do not want anyone to get behind their DBs. Winston
threw to Humphries and Gilmore clobbered him. But he stayed on his feet,
and turned up field for the First.
was locked in on the communication. I was following Evans so that made it
a little easier. When I got my guy, I’m good. Early in the week they
told me. I was happy for it to get on a guy and follow him wherever he
goes. Studied just him. Pretty much knew every route. It was fun,"
Gilmore said. "I think I did play with confidence. I play with
confidence every night, but sometimes it don’t go your way. Just got to
keep getting better."
and 10, and Tampa stayed in the 4-Wide Strong Shotgun. The Pats stayed 3-2
Dime. They rushed four. Winston dumped it off to the RB. Van Noy took him
and 3, 4-Wide Strong shotgun. The Pats stayed in a the same 3-2 Dime. They
bring five, but Van Noy stopped to pick up the RB again. Winston had to
throw the ball away. “Everything isn’t always going to be all good and
gravy," Gilmore said. "You just got to bounce back and prove
yourself every week, I think I did that this week." That was good
coverage by the much maligned secondary.
and 4, 4-Wide Strong shotgun. The Pats stayed in the 3-2 Dime. They rushed
three. Hightower and Van Noy were jamming the TE and RB at the line.
Winston had to take off. He dumped it off to Sims, who turned up field for
and 10, 4-Wide Strong shotgun. Pats stayed in the 3-2 Dime. The Pats
brought four as Van Noy picked up the RB again. "You usually have to
play it out whatever position you end up in you have to defend it,"
Jones said. "I think we did a good job of defending the lead and
coming out with a victory." Winston took off do to coverage. Flowers
and Adam Butler took him down after a few.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a
the same 3-2 Dime. Winston fumbled the snap. Then got up, and Wise Sacked
him as he threw it. "It could've been, but we ended up giving the
yardage back. Yeah, I thought really that one was a pretty easy one
because we had timeouts, and there was only two-and-a-half minutes to go
in the game, or something like that," BB said. "I think that's
one of those that even if you think it's a little less than 50/50 you
still might throw it, try to throw it late so that it didn't give them any
extra time to try and get it out there before the ball is snapped. If you
get it, you get it. If you don't, I mean there's really not a lot of
didn't feel like the timeouts were that valuable at that point. You never
want to waste them but we had them to use. I thought he was down when I
saw it live but that's always hard. We had him around the leg. Yeah, I
didn't think that was a hard decision. As I said after the game, I thought
for example the fourth-and-three was a lot tougher for me than that one
was." His knee was clearly down. That was a Sack for Wise.
and 15, Tampa lined up in the same. Pats stayed in the 3-2 Dime, but with
only four guys on the line this time. Winston had a ton of time. But he
had take off to his right anyway. He lofted the ball over Jones, right
into Jackson's hands. Gilmore cracked up out of bounds.
and 10, with 2:22 to go. Same-Same. Pats lined up with all five guys on
the line in a Dime. Winston threw it to the TE on the numbers, and Chung
hit him hard enough to pop the ball out. "The same thing, man. Just
play better. Play for each other. It’s us out there on the field,"
Chung said. "Coaches coach, players play. They make the calls and we
have to go out there and execute the calls that they drew up for the week.
Kind of just playing together and being brothers. Going out there and
doing our thing."
and 10, Tampa lined up the same, as did the Pats. They sent five. Winston
finally hit Brate in the Endzone. He caught it. Pats-16. Tampa-14.
goes for the onside kick. Ebner leaped forward, and grabbed the ball
before it went ten yards. Plus, Tampa was off sides. So the Pats got the
ball at the Tampa 37.
and 10, in the Big Ugly I with Fleming in at TE. The Pats are going
to run the ball and kick the field goal. However, Tampa will get a second
stop of the clock at the 2-minute warning. 2nd and 8, Pats Empty Brady had
time, and threw it to White. He dropped it at the two-minute warning.
3rd and 8, the Pats lined up Empty. Brady hit Hogan
crossing, but he was tackled from behind instantly.
decide not to go for it. "That was a tough decision. It was really a
tough decision. First down ends the game and we don't have to play
anymore. It was a long kick, 45 yards or something like that. The wind was
challenging, it was a crosswind. Steve [Gostkowski] hit a great
ball," BB said. "I definitely thought about if we could pick up
4th and 3. the game would be over and that would be it. One play would
have ended it, but I felt like the percentage play was the field goal.
Steve came through and our defense came through.
one that really could have gone either way. Honestly, punting was an
option there too. If it had been a couple yards further out like earlier
in the quarter and try to put them down inside the 50-yard line. A field
goal would have won, but [Tampa was] out of timeouts. If we could have
executed it well, we could have put another 20-30 yards on the drive. That
was one of those that there was some options, and it was a tough
decision." It could have gone either way.
run the clock down to 1:14. "It was up to coach," Brady said.
"I think we made enough yards where Steve is so clutch, and he banged
it right through. So that was big, that was a big score, obviously. They
got right down to scoring range so I am glad that he came through, as he
always does, and defense came through for us at the end." Gostkowski
kicked the field goal. Pats-19. Tampa-14.
and 10, Winston got the ball back with 1:10 to go. They lined up in a
3-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats mulled about in a 2-2 Prevent with Richards
in as the third LB. They bring three with Richards covering the RB, and
Van Noy spying Winston. He hit Jackson at midfield.
and 10, Tampa lined up in a 4-Wide Strong shotgun. Pats stayed 2-2, and
bring all five guys up. The OLT jumped off sides. 1st and 15, 4-Wide
Strong shotgun. Pats stay in a 2-2 Prevent with Richards in as the third
LB. They rushed four. Richards covered the RB out of the backfield. Wise
flush Winston, and forced him to take off. Winston ran into Van Noy as he
and 15, with :26 left on the clock. Same-same. Pats rushed two, and the
other two spied Winston. Winston hit Humphries on the sideline. He got out
of Bounds to stop the clock.
and 10 at the 36 with :19 seconds left. 4-Wide Weak shotgun. Pats lined up
in a 1-3 Prevent with three guys on the line. Winston hit Brate over the
middle. Winston spiked it with 3-seconds left. But they are down five and
have to throw it into the Endzone.
and 10, Tampa Empty. Pats rushed three and have everyone else in the
Endzone. Winston threw at the crowd of players. Jonathon Jones leaped out
of the Endzone and knocked the ball down for Victory. "I
think we just have to look at it and see what we did wrong and look back
and continue to improve,"
think this is a step in the right direction. Next week, we’ll look at
the film and, like I said, continue to build and move forward."
It was a giant step forward for this defense. Pats-19. Tampa-14.
