Grows Into a Starter.
and 10 the Pats lined up in a 2-TE Singleback. The Cards matched up in a
3-4 with a safety in the box, like they were looking for the run. "We
had our moments," BB said. "There were times when we moved the
ball well and executed crisply. There were times when we didn't. We just
need to be more consistent on that. That's everybody. That's the entire
offense, the entire defense." But the Pats start falsely. 1st and 15,
4-Wide Weak shotgun. Garoppolo threw in rhythm to Edelman on an Out. He
got up field quickly off the snap. He rounded the cut a little. But
snapped his head back nicely, and came back a little as the ball was a
little under thrown.
O-line was terrific on this play. "The line did a great job cleaning
the pocket out for me," Garoppolo said. "It was pretty clean for
the most part. I took a couple of hits, but that’s football. They did a
great job cleaning it out for me and it makes my job a lot easier when
they’re playing like that." The D-line stunted on the left, and
Cannon and the one-handed Mason played it perfectly.
and 5 they ran a screen, but Garoppolo got pulverized by a blitzing
safety, Tony Jefferson, and Blount didn't even have to time look back for
the pass. Garoppolo squibbed it into the knee of another rusher as he was
knocked sideways by Jefferson. That was almost a sack or an INT.
and 5, Empty. Garoppolo has time. The O-line has played better than
expected. Garoppolo three stepped and dumped it off to Hogan heading him
to the sideline. He turned up field for a long 1st down.
and 10, the Pats lined up in an I. Garoppolo dropped and threw a back
shoulder fade to Mitchell, but it was too back shoulder and Mitchell can't
touch this. Fleming was terrific in pass pro against Rooney Gunter on this
play. Develin picked up Mr. Jones off the play action, and Blount flipped
over Buchanan who tried to jump over him once he saw Blount didn't have
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Weak Shotgun. Bennett went in
motion. They ran behind Cannon. Bennett had a nice block on Mr. Jones.
Thuney pulled and hit Buchanan in the hole, but he ducked down in front of
Blount, who tripped over him for a cloud of dust.
and 8, 4-Wide Weak shotgun. Marcus Golden sacked Garoppolo and punched the
ball out. The ball popped out right into Mr. Jones' happy hands. Golden
ran all the way around Cannon to hit Garoppolo from behind. Fleming stoned
Jones outside, but he saw Golden attacking from behind and saw the fumble
the whole way, and was able to jump on the ball. Mr. Jones and Swearinger
do a little dance and the refs call a ridiculously stupid penalty on them.
Let the men dance for goodness sake. Although the penalty did send them
from inside the 40 to the other side of midfield.
and 10, the Cards lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. The Pats matched up in
a 3-3 Nickel that looked like a 3-4 with one ILB. David ran to the line
and had nothing. He bounced it outside, and McClellin set the edge and had
him. But David shimmied and cut inside in such a flash that McClellin, who
had him dead to rights, missed him. He ran for five more yards. He has an
stunning burst up field. He literally stunned McClellin with his burst up field
on that play.
and 5, the Cards lined up in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in
a Nickel with six guys up on the line. They rushed three and dropped
Hightower, Collins, and McClellin picked up David sneaking out of the
backfield. Palmer threw it in rhythm to Floyd past the magic yellow line.
Collins and Butler took him down.
and 10 Singleback. The Cards rushed up to the line, but the Pats are set
in their 3-4 with two Safeties up in the Box. They were looking for the
run. The Cards ran David again. He cut back behind his blockers twice.
Collins finally found him on the second level, and Harmon helped get David
down. He fought for eight. That was a great run, because the Pats played
the run all the way.
and 2, the Cards lined up in a Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 3-4.
They motioned the H-back behind the ORT. Three guys stepped in front of
the ORT and the two TEs. David went outside, and two guys are out there.
Ryan danced with him at the line a little, and David juked him and ran
through his arm grab. Long jumped him from the side, and he carried Long
over the marker.
and 10, the Cards stayed Singleback. The Pats matched up in a 3-4. They
ran a dive to David. He ran about three yards, was swarmed over by Ryan,
Brown, Hightower, and McClellin.
and 7, the Cards lined up in a Singleback, but Fitzgerald lined up as the
H-back. The Pats stayed in the 3-4. The Pats brought five, but just
couldn't reach Carson. He finally flung it out to Fitzgerald, and Chung
dragged him down short.
and 1, the Cards lined up in a 2-TE Singleback. Pats matched up in a 3-4.
They ran a Dive and Chris (Johnson) hopped and dived forward for the 1st
down. This was the play Mathis got injured on. Valentine fell on the back
of his ankle as he dived at Chris.
and 10, the Cards lined up Empty. The Pats match up in a 3-2 Dime. Carson
hit Gresham over the middle and McClellin took him down at the six and a
half. Carson just had a perfect pocket and all the time in the world.
and 1 and a half, the Cards went Singleback. The Pats matched up in the
3-4. David tried to bounce it outside, but he got caught by Branch. They
ran a dive at Branch, and he held the new ORG off with his long hands.
David juked inside, and the hopped outside. But Branches pulled himself
past the ORG, and hit him high as Ryan ran around the corner and hit him
and a half, the Cards lined up in a huge 3-TE Singleback. Pats went real
big in a 4-4 with Chung in the Box. David slammed into the line for the
1st. Branch just missed him at the LOS. Then David fought for a few more.
Valentine, Collins, McCourty, and Chung brought him down.
and goal from the 2, the Cards lined up in a 3-Wide I-shotgun (with David
lined up behind Palmer). The Pats had to stay Big in a 3-4. Carson hit
Fitzgerald getting outside on a blatant pick play for a TD. If the Pats
had run that play Goodell would have called out the National Guard. Pats
Pats went three and out, but brought the clock down to the 2-minute
warning. They were forced to punt at the 26.
and 10, Cards lined up in a 4-wide Strong shotgun. The Pats matched up in
a 2-3 Dime. They rushed two DBs off the strongside edge, and forced Carson
to throw too early. Chung got to Palmer, but had to slow as the ball was
gone and couldn't knock him down. Carson overthrew John Brown do to the
pressure. But he was bracketed by Coleman and McCourty.
and 10, Cards lined up in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats crowd the line
with a 2-3 Dime again. They bring three. And Carson threw deep, while both
WRs stopped. That was a bad miscommunication pass.
and 10, 3-Wide Shotgun. They match up in 2-3 Dime. He hit John Brown on a
17-yard Out. Justin Coleman hit him as the ball arrived, and slapped the
ball out of his hands to force the punt. The Pats then ran the clock out
of the Half.
