So thank you Draft fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of my books and website worldwide.

Getting Ugly.


1st and 10, Packers Empty. Falcons lined up in a 4-2 Nickel with two ILB. Rogers hit the TE in the Flat. Hey, the camera just flashed to that dirty little coward Roger Goodell in Atlanta (and that folk song is going through my head, "he went and shot mister Howard, and laid poor Jesse in his grave!"), and he reminds me more and more of President Jerkballs every day.

2nd and 8, Green Bay in a 3-Wide Strong Formation. Rogers hit Cobb wide open over the middle, with Atlanta in a Zone that had the LB Jones underneath him trying to keep up, and the FS Allen over the top. He finally hit him.

1st and 10, Packers in a Trip-right Weak shotgun. Falcons matched up in a 4-2 Nickel. They do seem to like the 4-2 Nickel. They got some pressure up the middle, which forced Rogers out of the pocket. Rogers threw back across his body, and hit Cobb wide open underneath three DBs.

1st and 10, Packers lined up in a 3-Wide Pistol. The Falcons matched up in a 4-2 Nickel. With the outside DBs in Press, and the inside DBs in Off. They ran. The Falcons pushed back the blindside, and forced Montgomery to cut back to the right for a few.

2nd and 7, Packers lined up in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. Falcons matched up in a 4-2 Nickel. We are already seeing the disintegration of the Packer offense because they are in a hole. The edgerushers got up field fast again. They sent the ILB up the A-Gap on a delayed blitz. Rogers had to dump it off to the uncovered RB Michaels in the flat, as Montgomery had limped off the field. Which really was the end of the Packer offense.

2nd and 4, Packers 4-Wide Weak shotgun. Falcons matched up in a 3-3 Nickel, with two DLs just the left of the OC, and a DE and OLB lined up next to each other outside the OLT. They like to line up two rushers in front of one blocker. The other two LBs snuck up to the line. They brought all six. Upshaw started to drop, but Rogers threw quickly over the middle. The TE caught it in the Box, and the rookie FS Neal knocked him down.

They really do like to form a line and let the receivers get open underneath them. "I think the easiest way about that is to just be a smart football player. And with saying that I mean just overall knowing the philosophy and know what concepts they like to attack and, again, just kind of being a coach on the field," BB said. "Seeing things on the field. Maybe they hit a big play and you kind of realize what it is. Maybe they're attacking in-cuts or something or maybe they're doing something. Being able to adjust and get that and being able to relay it. Logan Ryan is great at that, seeing things and talking to us throughout the play. 'Be alert for this.' Dev [McCourty], Chung, I mean a lot of guys even in the front with the run game. That really helps us as far as adjustments and stuff. Being a smart football player definitely helps." They want the receivers to catch everything in front of them.

1st and 10 at the 23, the Packers lined up in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Falcons matched up in a 4-3, with the Will shaded over to the Twins in the Slot. They ran the FB up the gut, he powered inside the Ten. Then fumbled the ball. It was recovered in the endzone by the Falcons for a touchback. 

If the Falcon's defense gave up over 10-yards to that guy? "I mean, we have a very special team with great relationships, and LeGarrette? He's great," Patricia said. "He's absolutely great. He's one of the guys I look to everyday. He loves to play, he loves to work at the game and he does a great job for us. He's something that kind of, you can go to and he picks you up every single day. That's kind of all I've got to say about that." What is Blount going to do running up the middle of that defense?

1st and 10, the Falcons motioned into a 3-Wide I, Twins right. Ryan seemed to check the play, and then ran a Play action. Ryan hit Jones in perfect rhythm, as he was being hit by the FS.

1st an 10, they motioned into a 2-Wide Diamond formation, with three guys forming a triangle around Ryan in the shotgun. They ran a play action, and all three guys blocked. So only two guys went out in the pattern. The TE on the strongside who lined up next to Ryan, chipped and ran out into the Flat. No one covered Julio Friggin' Jones. He caught it heading fast to the sideline, and fell out of bounds tapping his toes in bounds. Ryan took a hit.

That was the worst secondary I saw play in a few years. I mean, Butler and Harmon are not going to let Julio get that wide open. "He's just continued to improve. He's continued to get better. He hasn't let that one play define him," Harmon's said. "When people talk about Malcolm Butler, the first thing they might say is that interception, but after that, they're going to say he's consistently gotten better. He's an All-Pro and he's a Pro Bowl player. It's exciting to see that he hasn't gotten stagnant in his career. He's continued to want more. He's continued to want to get better. The sky is really the limit for him, and I'm excited to see where he continues to grow to be as a player." The Packers' secondary was so banged up couldn't cover anyone; never mind Julio, even when only two receivers went out for a pass.

1st and 10 at the 43, the Falcons went Singleback. They ran a Toss left to Freeman. "Tremendous, both are very dangerous. They are both good, they have a little different style, but they are both very good," BB said about Freeman and Coleman. "They are fast, they catch the ball well, they are hard to tackle and they catch the ball down the field. They are certainly dangerous on catch-and-run plays, check downs, screens, things like that. They are great running backs.

"They can get outside, they can run inside and they do a great job of breaking tackles. They make people miss in space, they run over guys, they run through them, they dodge them and they don't fumble. They do a great job of gaining yards with good ball security and run with good toughness. They get tough yards around the goal line, short-yardage situations or digging out that extra yard or two for a first down." He got some good blocking.

Edelman is going to chew these guys up. "Here's a guy who didn't play a down of receiver until he got here, didn't really know how to get into a receiver stance, I give him a hard time about that," Slater said. "But here he is as an elite player in this league, not just an elite player on this team, but an elite player in this league. I think that really goes to show you Chad O'Shea, the time he spent with him, Nick Caserio, Josh McDaniels, even back to Billy O when he was here. That process has been a fun one to watch." He owns the Box against good defenses.

2nd and 5, the Falcons lined up in a Twin-TE Right Singleback, which turned into a Bunch on the right. "They're fast everywhere. Really, as a whole, offensively, they're unique in that they don't really have a weakness," Long said. "They've got two great receivers. Probably the best receiver in the game. A lot of fast guys that play roles, and then two running backs that are as good catching as running the football on an offensive line that's been one of the groups with the most continuity in the whole league. And obviously Matt." They pass.

Ryan hit Sanu on a Comeback by the numbers. "They are really, really good secondary," Sanu said about the Pats. "They work really well together and they're always at the right place at the right time. They feed off each other really well. You just have to be on your Ps and Qs when you go against them." The refs gave the Falcons another bad spot for a First.

1st and 10 at the 33, Singleback. They ran. They passed out of that formation in the 1st quarter, and have run out of it twice in the 2nd. They ran a Dive for nothing. Alex Mack got hurt on that play. He was taken out and replaced by Garland.

1st and 10, it looked like the Falcons like to go Singleback when they get up ten, as then motioned into a 3-Wide Singleback, Twins-left. Which they will run and throw out of. I thought they would run here, but Ryan dropped.

He threw through some pressure on both sides of him to Julio. "Matt and I have kind of been along the same football path, at least being in the ACC, same draft, and all that," Long said. "I've watch his game as it's elevated and it elevated. He was always a good player, but the older he gets the better he gets. I'm really just happy for him. This is a great thing that he deserves, to be here, and we've got a hell of a challenge." Hopefully they will on the same path in the backfield on Sunday.

He just dropped it. "Obviously this is a good team and obviously a great offense with Matt Ryan and Julio, and the way that they do things with Coleman and Freeman," Hightower said. "Kyle Shanahan does a great job of putting those guys in great opportunities. From the same aspect Matty P does a good job of putting us in good positions to defend those things that obviously other offenses want to do. It'll be a good matchup, and I'm surely looking forward to it." He has a history of dropping some easy ones going all the way back to Alabama.

2nd and 10, Mack is back. They motioned into Trips left Strong shotgun. Freeman stayed in to block. He went low on the blitzing OLB, and took his legs out. Ryan zipped the ball to Julio, completely uncovered, on a short In over the middle. He turned up field and ran for 15 more yards. That is just wretched coverage. He just cut in under the two WRs lined up inside of him. The CB couldn't stay within 10-yards of him on a simple In.

Jones went to the sideline on 1st and 10, and they lined up in a Stacked up Singleback. They have to run here. But with Julio out, they ran Play action. Ryan rolled out to the left, and threw a terrible pass out of bound somewhere near Aldrick Robins.

That was a wasted down. "I see the exact same guy," Hightower said about Julio. "He's a hard worker. He was productive then. He's productive now. He's been the same guy that I came in in ‘08 with. It's been a pleasure to watch him grow and be the No. 1 receiver in the league." Ryan just threw the ball away with Julio out.

2nd and 10 at the 14 with Julio still out, they motioned into a 3-Wide Strong shotgun, Twins-left. "We'll try to do the best of our ability to try to slow them down. I mean, this is a great offense. You've got to give all the credit to them," Patricia said. "They have a smart coordinator. He does a great job of scheming up the offense and putting his players in position to make plays. They have great skill players, a great quarterback. I think one of the things that's not talked about enough is their offensive line. They do a great job of the blocking schemes that they ask them to do.

"They're very athletic. They really do a good job of the pocket. They keep the guys off the quarterback. He's been able to hold the ball or get the ball out on time to his skill players. It's just a very complete offense. They have dangerous weapons at all the positions, a solid offensive line that's doing a great job, great quarterback, great coordinator. You've got to start there and that's where you've got to give all the credit and try to slow it down." With no one open in the Man coverage, Ryan took off and ran for a TD, and it is getting ugly fast.

Without Julio on the field, Matty Ice is afraid to throw. And you can't really blame him. So the question is do they try to take Julio out of the offense and make Matty Ice try and score with other WRs. Because Julio is that good. He can beat you by himself. He has elite size. He's as big as a bear at WR! But what make him so special is that he has elite speed and burst as well. I would try to take Matty Ice's little Juliobear away from him first. Falcons-17.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Jerkballs is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff. The true fight starts with the Supreme court thieves. The Democrats have to fight until the lying, cheating, and stealing stops. The cowardly lyin' Congress has already surrendered to President Jerkballs Bulling. They want to strip away all our Constitutional rights, and make money the only right left. Those who have can it can but all the rights who don't, and those who can can suck it. HE RULED AGAINST THE RIGHT FOR EMPLOYEES TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST UNSAFE WORKING CONDITIONS, AND AS HE ALWAYS DOES, AND WILL ALWAYS DO, HE SIDED WITH THE POWERFUL CORPORATIONS OVER CITIZENS!

Democrats cannot allow a justice to be confirmed until Garland is confirmed
