Patriots Won This Game in the 2nd: Part I.

By TOM

I thought they won this game in the 2nd Quarter. It was where they got the spread they were able to hold onto. Even though the 4th quarter turned wacky and wild, and Houston tried valiantly to comeback.  "It's always good to get off to a good start here in the opener. I thought our guys played really competitively. We did a lot of good things. Obviously, some things we need to improve on, clean up on," BB said. "But that's the way it always is in a game like this. Houston's tough. We expected it to go all 60 minutes, like it did, and come down to the final play. That's pretty much what we've got. It's good to get the first one. We've got a long way to go. We've got a lot of work to do. And we'll just keep grinding it out here and see if we can get better each day. Get better each week."

The Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun on 3rd and 6 to start the Second. The O-line gave Brady a solid pocket, both Tackles shoved the OLB/pass-rushers past Brady. Which gave him plenty of room to throw. He threw too low to Burkhead out on the Seam.

4th and an inch, the Pats lined up in a Goal line-I. Brady sneaked it before the defense was ready for an easy looking First. All three interior OLs drove their DLs past the marker. Great surge by the O-line!

"They (the O-line) did a great job. I think we protected well all day and guys really slugged it out. I think we knew going up against this defense, this front, they’re very interchangeable," Brady said. "They have good players, they rush, they play the run well, they play runs away, they got their hand on the ball, caused the interception. They do a lot of things well. But our guys were up for the challenge. It wasn’t perfect, but it was good enough to get a win."

1st and 10 at the 23, the Pats put a Bunch on the right in a 4-Wide Singleback. Brady handed it to Burkhead and faked the end around to Patterson. However, the Houston D-line won inside this time, and the run was stuffed.

2nd and 9 at the 22, the Pats lined up quick in pretty much the same formation, only Patterson was on the other side. "He's come in and done everything we've asked him to do," BB said about Patterson. "He has different skills than some players that have played his position or the position that he's played. Some of those things are the same. Some of them are different. We'll see how it goes." He went in motion for pretty much the Jet-Sweep I demand in my 7-Things.

Brady gave it to him this time. He followed Gronk and Allen outside with the eyes of a veteran Kick returner. He beat a defender cutting behind Gronk. And as the Gronk blocked one defender, he got in the way of another. Allen took out the DB on the second level. Patterson followed both blockers perfectly, with two great cuts behind them, for the First.

1st and 10 at the 12, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide weak shogun. The O-line dominated again. Brady didn’t have to move as he spotted White sneaking out of the backfield. He hit him on the wrong shoulder. "I just kind of saw the flat open and Tom ended up finding me," White said. "It was just a one-on-one situation. Coaches always talk about just trying to win those, and get the ball in the end zone. That's just what I've tried to do." White pirouetted as he caught it, and cut back into the endzone for a touchdown that they made look easy with great execution. Pats-14. Houston-3.

Houston lined up on 1st down in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 4-3 Nickel, with Chung faking up like a Will. Houston wanted to run right, but the D-line slanted to that side. The RB tried to cut back, but Roberts slashed into the hole. Shelton shed the blocker, and grabbed him as well.

2nd and 7, Houston lined up in a Trips Right Strong shotgun. The Pats stayed 4-2 Nickel with Flowers and Davis in at D-end. The Houston O-line won this round. Watson threw a beauty to Ryan Griffin on the 3rd level.

1at and 10, Houston lined up in a Singleback. The Pats matched up in their 4-3 Nickel, with Chung moving all around to match up on the tight end. They ran play action. Flowers wasn’t fooled. He got a little pressure on Watkins, who threw deep again to Hopkins. But Gilmore hit him as the ball arrived and it popped out as they fell to the ground. 

You could see Gilmore made a great play punching the ball, as he flew at Watkins. "It’s difficult. He pushes off a lot, but they’re not going to call it," Gilmore said about Watkins. "He’s got a great catch radius. Coaches put me in the position to make plays. And sometimes that helps and sometimes it didn’t. I was able to make some plays on him. And I’m just happy with the win." McCourty also pushed Gilmore into Watkins to help pop the ball out.

2nd and 10, Pats stayed 4-3 Nickel, as the Texans went Empty. Davis had a lane to Watson again, but he threw fast on a Bubble screen. "It’s still the first game," Gilmore said. "We come out and tried to play good as a defense, trust each other, and rely on the coaches to put us in the position to make plays." Watkins cut inside, and Gilmore tripped him up again.

3rd and 1, Houston lined up in a 3-TE Singleback The Pats stacked the line with 7-guys. Shelton got a little penetration, but Alfred Blue slashed past him for a huge First. They ran quickly again on First down. But Guy ran down the line and tackled Blue from the side, as Hightower slashed in and hit him as well.

2nd and 10 at the 15, Houston stayed Singleback, while the Pats moseyed around a little. They finally formed into a 4-3 with four guys on the line. Van Noy got up field fast to distract Watson. And Wise thundered up field, and lightning around the OLT, with an arm grab, and dipped his way behind Watson. 

Then he dived into Watson's feet for a Sack. "It’s a combination between rush and coverage," Wise said. "Coach always says we have to have the rush and coverage marry so that big plays happen. If the receivers are covered and we create pressure on the quarterback, something’s going to happen." That was a great rush.

Wise got in on one of Flowers' Sacks, so he had a sack and a half as well. "Like coach always told us, just keep the pressure on the quarterback and plays will happen," Wise said. And that’s what we did. We may make it look easy. But it’s not easy. It takes a lot of hard work, discipline, and patience." Wise and Flowers were great in this game.

3rd and 13 at the 18, Houston went 3-Wide weak shotgun. The Pats crowded the line with six guys in what looked like a Nickel. The rush was slowed by a couple of stunts. But Flowers and a stunting Davis finally broke free on Watson’s right. They both touched him after he threw, but didn’t foul him. The pass bounced wretchedly to the Tight End Griffin.

The pressure by Davis and Flowers forced the FG. "We understood what type of game that it was going to be;" Flowers said. "As far as being able to get back there, we just had to continue to keep pressuring him. All of our guys all around the board did a great job just getting after him. And having him pressured in the pocket." Pats-14. Houston-6.

1st and 10 at the 18, the Pats motioned into a Singleback, with Hollister in the Slot. Brady ran play action and looked deep. He went to his third option, and threw deep to McCarron. But he was tackled the Aaron Colvin before the ball arrived. No call.

2nd and 10, The Pats motioned in a Patriots Formation (Empty, with Brady under center;). Then they motion into a 3-Wide Singleback. Brady took one step back, and Zipped it to White in the Slot. He charged forward for about five.

3rd and 5, the Pats lined up Empty again. Brady three stepped, and threw in rhythm to Gronk crossing. He turned up field and powered through two defenders past the magic yellow line.

1st and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. Brady ran play action and looked deep again. He fired a rocket into Hogan’s hands, but Johnathan Joseph jumped in front of him as the ball arrived. Another incompletion made it 3rd and 10. The Pats went Empty. Brady wanted to go deep again. But Hogan was covered by three guys. Brady hit Zack Cunningham in the back of the helmet.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:

TRUMP is not the disease. 

 

He is a symptom of the complete corruption 

 

of the Republican Party! 

 

When a political party commits a coup in the 

 

Congress and Senate, 

 

and refuses to play by the Rules and Laws?

 

 

The only thing left is utter Corruption!

 

A disease of hate, insecurity, 

 

and ABDICATION OF LAWS PREVAILS

 

IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

 

Garland was chosen for two reasons: pure corruption and to protect

 

OUR MENTALLY UNSTABLE PRESIDENT.

 

Senator Jeff Merkley was right about the problem with any nomination Donald Trump was going to make for the Supreme Court at this low point in the president’s troubled tenure. “A President under investigation should never be allowed to appoint a Justice to the Supreme Court," the Oregon Democrat argued before Trump announced on Monday night that he had selected federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.


Merkley’s objection was generally appropriate, in light of the ongoing inquiry by special counsel Robert Mueller into wrongdoing by the president’s associates—and, potentially, Trump himself. But it is especially appropriate with regard to Kavanaugh.


A former staff secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh now serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He is a rigid right-wing ideologue who, if confirmed, would move the court far to the right. “The president pulled Judge Kavanaugh’s name from a pre-approved list concocted by radical, far-right special interests that are committed to undermining a woman’s right to choose, health care protections, safeguards for workers and seniors, LGBTQ rights, and a host of other critical public protections that touch the lives of every New Mexican and every American," explains Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). “These extreme groups put Judge Kavanaugh’s name on their list for a reason."


But believers in the rule of law should be concerned that something else about this nominee appealed to Donald Trump. Kavanaugh has been an open advocate for precisely the sort of imperial presidency that the founders of the American experiment feared—and that Donald Trump relishes.


There is open speculation that Trump’s grip on the presidency is threatened by the special counsel’s investigation. But the high court could avert that threat. And Trump has every reason to believe that his nominee could tip the balance of a closely divided court in his favor. As Bloomberg News has noted, “Kavanaugh addressed some of the constitutional issues that could emerge from an investigation like Mueller’s in a 2009 Minnesota Law Review article." What Kavanaugh wrote three years after he assumed his current position on the DC Circuit ought to trouble everyone who believes that the president is a servant of the people, rather than “a king for four years."


“I believe it vital that the President be able to focus on his never-ending tasks with as few distractions as possible. The country wants the President to be ‘one of us’ who bears the same responsibilities of citizenship that all share. But I believe that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office," argued Kavanaugh in the law-review article. He then asserted that “the indictment and trial of a sitting President, moreover, would cripple the federal government, rendering it unable to function with credibility in either the international or domestic arenas. Such an outcome would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis."

 

THE REASON Garland WAS CHOSEN IS BECAUSE HE TREASONOUSLY PRETENDS TO BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS 

 

 

ABOVE THE LAW,

 

 

WHEN HE IS A REPUBLICAN!

 

 

Democratic Senators Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Cory Booker of New Jersey said Trump shouldn’t be allowed to fill the court seat until the conclusion of the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

 

"A President under investigation should never be allowed to appoint a Justice to the Supreme Court,” Merkley tweeted Thursday.

 

But WHEN IT WAS A DEMOCRAT- PRESIDENT, CLINTON?

 

HE ARGUED THAT HE IS OPEN TO FULL PROSECUTION

 

OF THE LAW.

 

HE IS THE EXACT PURE-PARTISAN HACK 

 

 

THAT MUST 

 

 

NEVER SIT ON SUPREME COURT.

 

 

HE WILL RULE STRAIGHT DOWN

 

 

REPUBLICAN LINES,

 

 

NOT DOWN AMERICAN LINES.

 

 

Hey Trump, go pee in a hole!

 

BEWARE AMERICA! OUR DEMOCRACY IS DYING!

 

WE ARE NOW IN A 

 

"WORST CASE SCENARIO" SITUATION!
