Game Back Syndrome.
Pats came out and scored on a nice drive to start the game. As I told
everyone before this game, 2nd game back syndrome is the most frustrating
feeling in sports. Brady threw two passes into the turf in this drive,
even though his O-line was spectacular in the first drive. He also jogged
out of bound looking down field, once, like he had never seen coverage
before. They had one great run by Blount, and one great throw by Brady to
Gronk to get them in field goal range. And hopefully Gostkowski ended the
slump with a great kick right the down the middle.
game went just the way I said. Brady started out in disarray. He clearly
had trouble making decisions. The entire 1st Half was a dogfight. Now some
pundits looked at the final score and say it was an easy win, and Brady
never struggled. That is ridiculous. He didn't just struggle, it was ugly.
He kept dancing around the pocket like a bear on a unicycle, and couldn't
throw it, because 2nd game back syndrome had separated his brain from his
Pats lined up on the 25 in a 3-Wide Singleback to start the game. Which is
also why this offense is indefensible (as in defense, not as in Trump
bragging about reaching up ladies skirts to "grab
her by the pussy").
when I say they line up in a 4-Wide Shotgun, half the time two of those
Wides are 270-pound tight ends. "He's a great player to have on the
team," Gronk said about Bennett. "A super unselfish guy and this
is his ninth year so he's been in the league actually two years longer
than me. [He] knows more. Knows a little bit more: ins-and-outs, tricks,
been on a few teams, been seeing it all, and it's just great having him
interchange. Sometimes he's out there in the sub packages. Then the next
play, next series I'm out there in the sub packages, which help each other
out big time. Keep our bodies fresh and it's just great working with him
overall. His blocking skills, just overall he's such a complete tight end
and he can do it all and it's just great going out there and learning from
each other and helping each other out because both of our goals are the
same. It's to get the team win and do whatever we can for the team so it's
awesome having him there." They don't just have the two best tight
ends in the NFL, they have the two most versatile tight ends in the NFL.
can lined up out wide like WRs, and then on the next play they can line up
and run block like two O-tackles on the next play. "We were just
playing football, man," Bennett said. "It gets like that
sometimes. We've got guys who don't back down from anyone and play hard
throughout the whole game. That's just the way it is. We don't back down.
We're not looking for trouble, but we don't walk away from trouble
either." They hurt guys running deep down the field, and then knock
them on their butts in the run game.
barked out orders under center, as Bennett motioned all the way outside
the numbers on the Blindside. They had two WRs lined up in the slot, and
two 270-pounds tight ends are lined up as the Split End and Flanker
outside. I mean, how the hell are you going to defend that (it's like
trying to defend Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women by
by the pussy")?
know! If you're a Dad with a daughter than you cannot vote for Darth
Trump. Minimally, as a Dad, you must be worthy of your daughter. Voting
for Darth Trump makes you unworthy of your daughter.
alert: If you are so sensitive
about your feelings that you will cry if someone tells you the truth about
Darth Trump (you pussy), than you might want to: close your eyes, cover
your ears, pinch you nose, and not read this part:
heard one indefensible Farther (hopefully daughterless) claiming that he
had heard such sexual assaulting talk in every locker room he had ever
been in, which is such a ridiculous lie that it makes him sound like a
boob (being sexually assaulted by Darth Trump). If you have to lie
to yourself, and others, that badly to convince yourself it is okay to
vote for that scumbag, than you might be a scumbag as well. I have never
heard a scumbag bragging about sexually assaulting women, by grabbing
"her by the
pussy", in any locker room I have ever been in, period. And it is
unacceptable that you would pretend that it is commonplace or
acceptable in any way shape or form.
are not talking about voting for Romney here, a man I would spend a lifetime
fighting against his trickle-down Bush-onomics.
But it was not a moral issue to vote for Romney. It is a moral
issue to vote for a serial sexual assaulter! A scumbag who brags about
sexually assaulting women in the most shocking of ways, and then tries to
call himself a victim after women agreed with him, by saying he did what
he said he likes to do to woman, to them. How disingenuous do you
have to be to believe those woman are fake?
cannot have it both ways, though (R)'s are certainly trying. When you brag
about sexually assaulting women, you then cannot complain when your
horribly soul-scarred victims finally come out of the closet, and say
"YES! He sexually assaulted me in the exact manner that he was
is a moral issue to vote for Darth Trump, and it is so some much
more disgusting if you are a Dad. If you are a Father with a daughter than
you cannot vote for Darth Trump. Minimally as a Father, you must be worthy
of your daughter. Voting for Darth Trump makes you unworthy of your
daughter. It makes you unworthy of all your children. Your sons need to
learn that is it not okay to sexually assault someone else's daughter as
now back to our regularly scheduled program:
mean, Bennett took it to a whole new level last week, and Gronk took it to
a whole level this week. "I mean, he's only gotten better as he's
gotten older, and understood more about the game and what he needs to do
to prepare himself," TB12 said about Gronk. "He just makes so
many great plays. He's a big target and he makes any quarterback look
good. If he's uncovered, you know he's going to get it, and there were
plenty of times where he was uncovered today, but all the other guys were
making plays, too. That's what makes a good offense. I said that on
Wednesday. It's finding guys that are running free in the defense and we
do a lot of different things to try to create that. Gronk [Rob Gronkowski]
is in a lot of different places, but when his number is called, he makes
the plays." In-De-Fence-A-Bull!
Brady shifted backwards into a 4-Wide Weak shotgun, next to James White.
"James is a very consistent and dependable player for us," BB
said. "Every day he walks into the building, that's what you get. You
get a player who's well-prepared, who's alert, who's on his job, who's
dependable, tough, consistent, and he's like that all the time. It doesn't
matter what phase of the game it's on. It could be special teams, offense,
scout team, or what day of the week it is, he's very dependable, knows his
job; tries to do it the best he can. If he makes a mistake, he works hard
to improve on it. He definitely has skill as a runner, receiver; an
ability to break tackles and make people miss in the open field, so he's
been a productive player for us. His role hasn't been being there on every
single down all the time, but when he has been in there, he's been highly
productive and he made some big plays for us yesterday." I predicted
before the game that Brady, dealing with 2nd game back syndrome, was going
to need to dump the ball off to White a lot, and he did.
Brady still had to survey the formation as though he is still not quite
certain. The snap was high, and Brady had to leap up for it like it was a
rebound. Then he handed the ball off underneath to White. The Bengals were
fooled with both tight ends lined up like WRs outside. Cannon and Solder
were able to just push the D-ends past them, as they ran towards
and Thuney doubled Peko at the point, and that was the key block. Blount
literally had a 10-yard wide hole on the left side of the O-line to run
through. He was at the second level by the
time Andrews had slipped off of Peko and hit Burfict. Hogan and Bennett
both got blocks on the DBs outside. Blount read it perfectly and cut
straight outside, and then straight up field behind Bennett to get the 1st
and 10, the Pats lined up both TEs inside this time and both WRs outside.
They ran play action to Blount. Brady whipped the ball into the dirt at
Edelman, like his mind could read the play, but his instincts couldn't get
him the ball. "I think I know how to get to that place where I need
to be," Brady said. "You only have so much energy, and at some
point you've got to cut it loose when the moment is right. It's certainly
an emotional environment for football. There were a lot of people there
when we ran out and they were there all game, so it was great. And it was
great to win. That's what we want to do. Our job is to come out here and
to be focused on what we need to do and then make a bunch of good plays
and then try to beat the opponent, and we figured out a way to do
that." While dealing with 2nd game back syndrome.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 4-Wide strong shotgun, with Trips on the
right. They faked a screen to Edelman on the right. Then Brady turned and
hit White on a screen on the left. But Cincy read it right, and Peko
tackled him almost as he caught the ball.
and 9, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun, with Amendola dancing
from side to side, as though trying to decide which side to line up on.
"Well they're pretty [good]," Brady said. "They're an
exceptional group, there's no doubt about it. It's been fun to work with
them. We're still building. We're only six games into the year, so there's
still a lot more work to do, there's a long way to go. We'll be challenged
different weeks with different things, but it was good to kind of spread
the ball around a bit today. A lot of guys ended up making plays, and
that's a good way to play." Gronk lined up on the blindside. Amendola
finally stopped between Edelman and Hogan.
caught the shotgun snap, and 3-stepped back. He was looking over the
middle, and snapped his arm back like he was going to throw, and didn't.
Dunlap rushed at him, as he had dipped under Cannon and got up field.
Brady had to step up. He looked to his right, and couldn't make a
decision. Then he tip-toed up field a little, and got under all the
rushers and looked to his left. He started to throw, but pulled it back
again, as though his brain was overriding his instincts. Then he saw Gronk
breaking free down the sideline. That was the first throw where Brady just
threw without thinking. It was a perfect throw. He looked outside at White
being followed by the LB. Then snapped his head down field, and saw Gronk
running down the sideline. He instantly threw without thinking, and placed
it perfectly between two defenders.
ran an Out, and saw Brady scrambling. So he took off downfield to break
open, and made a great catch. "Just being able to practice and being
healthy and having two wheels under me and going out there and seeing all
the guys work throughout the practices when I wasn't there," Gronk
said. "It makes me want to get out there, it makes me want to work
hard in my rehab, which I was. I was doing everything possible to get back
to where I needed to get back to. When you see the guys, when you're down
and out and you're not playing and you see the guys working hard non-stop,
it makes you want to work hard in rehab and get back out on the field, and
then when you get back on to the field, to get back into the shape I was
in at the beginning of camp. Just seeing my teammates go hard, it makes me
want to go, and it makes me want to go just for myself, too. Just for the
love of the game." He bumbled down over two defenders: past midfield,
inside the 35, and into field goal range.
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback, with three actual wide
receivers lined up outside. Brady turned and handed the ball to White on
an off tackle run. Solder was fighting with Michael Johnson in front of
him, and knocked him down. Thuney outfight Dansby. But Andrews just
couldn't keep Peko inside. He burst past him and got outside and tackled
White. That was a tough block for Andrews to execute, as Peko was lined up
on left and the run was to that side.
and 8 from the 30, the Pats lined up Empty. This play was all on Brady's
2nd game back brain, which was just not good. Brady had time in the
pocket, as both D-ends ran past him. Solder knocked Johnson down as he
tried to stop and get back, while Cannon was hand fighting with Dunlap to
Brady's right. But the three inside guys had shoved the two DTs way off to
Brady's left. He stepped up into the pocket, as Dunlap broke back inside.
His head twitched side to side twice, like the 2nd game back syndrome was
slapping him in the face back and forth. He had to retreat: while looking
at Amendola open on a short Out to his left, Solder now laying on top of
the DE, and Cannon shoving Dunlap into Andrews and Thuney.
regained his balance back at the original spot he 3-stepped into off the
snap. Then he jogged casually outside to the right while looking back to
the left, like he was out picking daises with his kids. Then his feet
clamored to a stop, and all four rushers got over to that side of the
field. Cannon was now fighting Dunlap right in front of Brady. He started
to retreat, saw Johnson finally beat Solder. He panicked outside with a
sudden twitch/hop to his right, like a frog on a lily pad who just heard a
hawk screech, and hopped into the pond.
ran diagonally outside as three of the D-linemen quit, because the play
was now in its' second day. The only one still running was Johnson. Brady
turned past the 30, and pump faked, sort of, as he turned outside. Dansby
was now charging him, so he finally skipped out of bounds, like someone's
daughter jumping rope in their front yard. That play took 12 seconds off
the clock, and was his clearest example of 2nd game back syndrome I have
ever seen. Brady just couldn't coordinate his instincts and brain into a
and 6, the Pats lined up in a 4-Wide Strong Shotgun, with Gronk on the
right and trip-WRs on the left. Cincy called timeout. The Pats came back
out Empty. Brady got spooked out of the pocket again, by Johnson flying
behind him on a speed rush. He tried to step up, but the DTs had held
inside. He dumped his second pass horribly into the dirt well short of
anything or anyone. Gostkowski came out and actually hit a field goal. The
Pats went up 3-Zip, and that little field goal was really the difference
for most of the 1st Half. The Pats D was spectacularly bending but not
breaking in the 1st Half, and really kept them in the game. As Brady's 2nd
game back syndrome killed the Pats offense in the 1st half.
