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

By TOM

1st and 10, Houston lined up in a wacky Weak formation Shotgun. Watson handed it to the RB.  He slipped through the line. Bentley popped him, as McCourty grabbed his legs.

"We just talked about all week just playing from ahead. We knew it wasn’t (gonna) finish the game right away. We all talked all through the week this game was going to come down to the last play and it did, but we thought it was very important to get out there and play from ahead," McCourty said. "By doing that our offense went out there [and] I thought they played really well and I thought we just had to keep giving them chances to score against another really good defense. We just have to continue to do those things."

2nd and too little, Houston went Trips right Strong shotgun. Pats crowded the line with five guys in a 3-3 Nickel. They ran play action. Watson hit Hopkins underneath Gilmore for barely a First.

1st and 10, Houston lined up in a 3-Wide Weak. The Pats matched up in a 2-4 Nickel with Davis standing up as a 290-pound OLB. They ran under Davis. Miller slashed past him, until Bentley took him down. 

"It’s the first game and he did a lot of good things out there," BB said about Bentley. "There are some things that we talked about during the game, some things he’ll improve in. So we just need to keep working as a team and individually, collectively, to try to get better in every area."

2nd and 3, Houston went Singleback. The Pats went bigger with eight guys in the box, 4 by 4. They ran play action. Watson had time until Guy broke free, and slammed into Watson as he threw. Watson put it up for grabs. 

Rowe and Gilmore fought over the ball. "Everything goes hand in hand. The defensive line gets the pressure and makes the quarterback throw it quicker, or maybe make a bad decision," Rowe said. "At the same time we have to cover. So he holds the ball and the defensive line can get there. It all just works hand in hand. And when things like that are clicking, it’s pretty hard to get past us." Gilmore finally dragged it in for the great INT.

The Pats lined up in a Singleback on 1st and 10, they ran a Dive to Hill, but it was stuffed. So he hopped to his right, and then upfield for a gain when there was nothing. 2nd and 8, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Singleback. Brady kept it. He eyed down Gronk as he dragging over the middle, and finally hit him short.

3rd and 4, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide Winged shotgun. Brady never looked away from Gronk again. He fired it at him as hard as he could, but a rookie DB knocked it down to force the punt.

1st and 10, Houston lined up in a Strong Formation Shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 3-4. Lamar Miller followed his blockers well for six. Van Noy got there first and Chung, Guy, and McCourty helped bring him down.

2nd and 4, Houston lined up in a Bunch Left Strong shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 3-3 Nickel. Bentley, Van Noy, and Flowers brought him down.

"It’s definitely a challenge. Anytime you have a guy that can make plays with his legs and is able to break the pocket to extend plays, you always have to stay conscious," Flowers said. "You don’t want to be too timid and not have any rush at all, so we wanted to be aggressive, but also aware of the rushing on us."

3rd and 3, Houston lined up in a Bunch Right Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 4-2 Nickel. They got pressure on Watson. Wise grabbed him from behind as he took off, but Watson was able to break the tackle. Some guy named Nicholas Grigsby tackled him at the line, but he fell forward for the First. 

"We practice that a lot throughout training camp and getting ready for this game," McCourty said about playing a scrambling QB. "I thought everyone executed well. We knew he was going to buy some time back there. But it was all about just trying to get to him, and not let him be able to launch it."

1st and 10, Houston went Weak formation Shotgun again, and the Pats matched up in a 3-3 Nickel, and looked like they were coming. Houston ran it. There were a lot of collisions at the LOS. Bentley, Shelton, and McCourty got the RB short.

2nd and 8, Houston lined up at the two-minute warning struck, and they started falsely. 2nd and 13, Houston lined up in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Pats matched up in a 3-3 Nickel again. Bentley and Hightower dropped as they ran a WR-Screen.

Gilmore snagged Sammie Coated by the leg and didn’t let go until he fell down. "He’s a great quarterback," Gilmore said. "He’s elusive in the pocket and we knew that coming in. So it wasn’t pretty the whole time. But we were able to contain him." The refs called a block in the back.

2nd and 23, Houston went 4-Wide Weak shotgun, while the Pats stayed 3-3 Nickel. But they spread it out this time. They ran a draw. "I think we are playing better as a football team. We had good drops in our zone, it was a good mix o f the [defensive alignment]," Harmon said. "The front seven and the secondary all playing off each other and when we do that we are a pretty good football team. I think over all we played solid but we did not play great. Tomorrow we will dissect the plays and see what we need to do better." McCourty tackled the RB after a few.

3rd and 19, Houston lined up in a 2-Wide Weak shotgun. The Pats matched up in a 4-1 Dime, with an umbrella waiting to happen in the secondary. Bentley dropped out. Flowers hit Watson as he throw. The RB ran for a while, but was well short. 

Wise and McCourty took him down short of midfield to force the punt. "Deatrich’s done a really good job of that. He’s adjusted his pass-rush techniques and awareness, and so forth over the last year, year-and-a-half. He’s done a real good job of that," BB said. "There’s a fine line between just going all-out for an elusive player, whether it’s a quarterback or any player. And then him juking you and you missing in space. And then it’s even more trouble for everybody else. " My guy, Jeremy Hill blocked the punt, but it still bounced down field for 39-yards (such a damn shame about his leg).

The Pats lined up in a I, and gave it to Hill as a reward. He slashed right up the middle for a nice 8. They lined up quick on 2nd and 2 back in the I. Brady gave it to Hill, and he cut outside, and ran past the Pats Forty, and out of bounds to stop the clock. This has been the Hill trifecta (the Pats are going to seriously miss him).

The Pats can take a breath as they lined up in a 3-Wide Winged shotgun. Brady had time and looked to his forth option. "We have a lot of versatile guys, a lot of guys that can catch the football," White said. "Tom does a great job of spreading it out, finding the open guy. Like I said, guys are trying to make a play when they have the opportunity and I think guys tried to do that today." He hit Gronk in the hands between two defenders.

The ball dropped just over the head of two defenders sandwiching Gronk, and the ball somehow fell perfectly into his big mitts, incredible. "When I was running up the seam I had two guys on me and when I saw the ball in the air I literally thought first thing, 'What is Tom thinking?'" Gronk said. "When that ball was in the air I had a guy grabbing me. And I was just like, 'I've just got to go for it. I can't let them make a play on it.' So just went up for it, made the catch.

"I did make the catch. I don't know how. When I went to the ground I had it stable in my hand, so it was definitely a catch, but Tom went up to the line really quick just to make sure. We got the play off, which was nice." Gronk held on, and I don't know how he caught it either.

The Pats Quickly ran up and snapped the ball, as the reception to Gronk was in question. Brady handed it to the immaculate Burkhead. He weaved around the LOS for about seven yards. But the Safety put his helmet on the ball, and popped it out. 

"We'll learn some things today. We'll learn a lot over the next few games here. We play different types of defenses and different types of players. We'll see how it all comes together," BB said. "As I said, we did some good things today and there were some things we did that weren’t so good that we need to improve on or figure out something else to do. And that's true in all three phases of the game. We need to do a good job of coaching, do a better job of coaching, try to put the players in good position and get higher execution levels."

However, it went right to Hogan who dropped on it quickly. The refs don’t call a timeout to look at the play for some reason. The Pats are forced to call a timeout as the clock wound down from 39-second to 30.

2nd and 9, the Pats lined up in a mystery formation as the Announcers were still whining about the Gronk catch. But Brady threw a beautiful pass to Dorsett. Who literally had to fall out of bounds after the catch to stop the clock, in order to catch it. He rolled out of bounds at the 18.

"I've known that guy since high school. He works extremely hard. He got here last year after training camp, so a lot was kind of thrown at him fast. I think he got better as the year went on," White said about Dorsett. "I think he took the challenge this offseason to learn the offense as best he can and just be in the right spots and win in man. I think he went out there and showed it today. That he can be a good player for us."

1st and 10 with 27-seconds left, the Pats lined up Empty. Brady has time, and threw back shoulder to White. But he couldn't hang on. 2nd and 10, the Pats lined up in a 3-Wide shotgun. He hit Dorsett at the Five, and got out of bounds at the Four. 

"Phillip did a great job, got some opportunity and then came up with the plays, came up with the catches," Brady said. "It’s kind of what he’s been doing all camp, all spring and it was good to see it show up today. So, we needed it. We need everybody who’s out there to make plays. We’re not out there to punt, but we’ve got to string more good plays together in order to score more points."

1at and Goal with 19-seconds on the clock. The Pats motioned into a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Brady hit Dorsett in the back of the Endzone for an Elite two-minute drill touchdown. That is as great as it gets folks.

"We got off to a good start in the drive with a couple of runs from Jeremy [Hill] and he got out of bounds on the second one, so that got us up close to midfield or so. We only had one timeout left. We used two timeouts on defense," BB said. "We had no choice but to go to the ball quickly and certainly in a situation like that we'd want to go anyway. We wouldn’t want a play stoppage if we didn't have to have one.

"It was a good heads-up play, but that's what we practice and we executed it pretty well. It was a great drive after we had had several series offensively that weren’t all that productive. To get the ball in that situation and be able to take it down there in, whatever it was, a minute and 40 or something like that. Josh, the offensive staff, the players did a great job."

Pats 21. Houston-6. Whew that was a long Quarter. It is going to take a miracle for Houston to comeback in this game.

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!
