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.
had a feeling when I was previewing the game Thursday night. The Pats were
a complete mystery to me this Preseason. Something just seemed off. I have
never seen fewer starters play in a Preseason before. Ii seemed like BB
showed a distain for the month of August, like he was too cool for school.
Which happens with the Pats' Mad Scientist sometimes. He outsmarts
seemed he kept the top-secret information from the players as well as the
fans, media, and Chiefs. "We didn't really do much of anything well
enough tonight to deserve to win. We gave up 42 points, stopped on four
short-yardage plays," BB said. "We've got to coach better, got
to practice better, got to play better. We've got a lot of work to do. I
mean, that's obvious. We'll have to get back to work and see if we can
improve pretty much everything. It's just not good enough. Andy [and]
Kansas City, they did a good job. Give them credit. We just really weren't
competitive enough, especially on offense and defense. We made too many
mistakes and didn't play well on top of that. The fundamentals weren't
good enough. Really nothing was good enough so we've all got to do a
better job. That's going to be pretty much the answer to every question
because that what it was." It looked sometimes like even the playbook
was top secret in the Preseason. That lack of fundamental continuity
showed up at the wrong times Thursday Night.
whole Preseason seemed like an exercise in espionage. "I just think
we need to have more urgency and go out there and perform a lot
better," Brady said. "That is a winning attitude and a
championship attitude that you need to bring every day. We had it handed
to us on our own field. It's a terrible feeling, and the only people that
can do something about it are in that locker room. We've got to dig a lot
deeper than we did tonight because we didn't dig very deep tonight."
I didn't see all eleven starters, on both sides of the ball, on the field
in the four Preseason games for one play.
have to have all eleven guys on the field working in concert, or it is
going to look like the Trump White House. "I don't know. It was 17-7
with two minutes to go in the half and we give up a 90-yard touchdown
drive. I mean, look, there was problems all over the place," BB said.
"I don't know. I mean, you go in there and, like I said, there's a
lot of things we need to work on. We need to get to work. We need to
improve them. It's a pretty lengthy list. That's what we'll do."
First! They have to get all eleven starters, on both sides of the ball, on
the field working and coordinating together in concert for as many plays
as possible over the next 7 days.
was like BB was on a secret spy mission to trick Andy Reid. "Andy’s
a great coach, been with one and now two organizations," BB said.
"I respect the way he coaches his team. I respect the way they play.
They’re always tough. We’ve always had great battles with them. I
don’t think anybody’s – I can think of too many teams that have
handled us better than the way they handled us in 2014. That was one game
but there have been a lot of great competitive games going back to the
‘07 game here when he was in Philadelphia. I know Andy’s family. I
have a lot of respect for him, his family, him personally and
professionally. He’s one of the great coaches in this league." Only
he seemed to trick his players instead.
players still need to coordinate. "I don't know," BB said.
"I mean the season just started. Everybody is playing with what
they're playing with right now." That sounds like even he is not in
synch with his players. They have to be in sync like it is a ballet, or
the prima ballerina is going to get dropped on her ass when the dude
ballerina tries to catch her. The offensive players clearly didn't play
enough together this Preseason. It was an experiment that failed. I get
the Super Bowl hangover, and the double seasons they played. But that was
too much rest.
thought the almost exclusion of Cooks and Brady in the Preseason working
together to gather some kind of chemistry was terrifying. "We didn't
have it the way we needed it tonight," Brady said. "It's got to
be at a much higher level next week and the rest of the year. That's going
to be a big point of emphasis for all of us." I don’t know if Brady
dropped Cooks on his ass or visa versa, but they were more strangers than
teammates this Preseason. Then Boom! Their dancing on the high wire together
with no net Thursday Night.
BB was probably counting on an Edelman buffer, but he is gone.
"Cookie made a lot of plays," Brady said. "[Cooks] drew I
think four or five pass interference penalties, along with his receptions.
Wish I'd have hit him on that post there, the second-to-last drive. So,
I've got to figure out what I've got to do better." Edelman isn't the
best WR in the NFL. Cooks had better Fantasy stats then he did the past
three seasons. But Edelman was the best 3rd-down WR in the NFL. He didn't
make you money on DraftKings, but he kept those drives alive.
a normal-Gronk (which is an oxymoron;) and a healthy Edelman, Brady was
left on stage dancing in the dark. "We have to focus on doing the
little things better and doing our job." Cooks said. "We'll have
to go back to the drawing board and figure it out." Then Amendola,
who was playing the part of Edelman to perfection, got knocked out with an
Cooks, Hogan, and the newest prima ballerina Phillip Dorsett, have to
dance together with Brady. "I think Phillip knew what to do,"
Brady said. "We just have to execute better. I mean, different guys
are called on at different times. He went in there, and I wasn't worried
about him. We've just all got to do a better job, everyone." Like I
wrote before the game, Dorsett will be getting another mini minicamp this
long weekend and next week.
all know Brady can be a prima donna when it comes to his WRs sometimes,
but the lack of anything going on between Brady and Cooks was very evident
in the Preseason. They have to find a way to get that chemistry going, or
it is going to be another bad deal in a long line a failed WRs who
couldn't work with Brady. Though they did look like they had actually met
before in the 2nd Half.
those two can't find as close a chemistry as Brady had with Amendola and
Edelman, they will be 0 and 2. "It's a tough loss in general,"
Cooks said. "Especially with the year we're coming off of, even
though I wasn't there for it, and it being the season opener makes it even
tougher." They need to throw a thousand passes to each other over
this long week.
the sky is not falling. "I mean, we definitely have to play
better," Brady said. "It's a long year, so we've got 15 games.
We're going to have to do a better job, and he's not coming back. So, the
guys that are in there are going to have to do a good job. Every position
that we have is going to have to do a better job than we did tonight.
There was nothing really positive about anything that was done, so we've
got to get back to work. We've got nine days before the next game, and
hopefully we play a lot better than tonight." Even as the second
Preseason begins, there is hope in Spy-town.
