7-Things For Detroit: Part III.

By TOM

3. Josh Gordon Is The Best WR Who You Don’t Want On Your Team: Part II– The mystery man has finally arrived in Foxboro with the hubbub of a treasonous President revealing dangerous top secret information for political reason (and to help Putin find spies in his dictatorship). Josh Gordon has arrived at the Last Chance Salon, and is probably too high to know it.

So now we have an instant talent, who also been instant trouble. “I hate to make projections and expectations. That’s not fair. I’ve never met Josh, personally. Just like I hadn’t met some of the guys who have come in the last couple of weeks,” Brady said. “We’ll see how it goes this week. Hopefully, he can work hard, put the team first, and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team.” The problem is that he has been the least reliable guy in the NFL for the past five or six years or so.

The Patriots have added a baker’s dozen at WR since September has started, and we still don’t know who they are. Each is limited in their own way, and all are limited in their lack of understanding the Patriots Way and system. It is not a run drunk and wild system. It is a read and react system. Read the coverage, and make the adjustments to the route that Brady wants.

So now Gordon has to go against his nature, and become the adult he has never been able to mature into. “I hate to make projections and expectations. I’ve never met Josh, personally, just like I hadn’t met some of the guys who have come in the last couple of weeks,” Brady said. “We’ll see how it goes this week. Hopefully, he can work hard, put the team first, and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team.” He has to not just run high and wild in routes.

He has to run smart with his eyes open, and reading Brady’s mind (go west young man). “Any time you get someone in the middle of the season, there’s obviously a lot of things that have happened that have got the team to a certain point that they weren’t a part of,” Brady said soberly. “So not sure how many of those things matter. But you’d like to try to get up to speed as quickly as possible. And it’s really up to the individuals. All these things need to play themselves out.” It’s not a good sign if it's up to the individual.

That has not been a good thing for Josh. When all the marbles are in his court, it has been a mess. He is not going to mature overnight. If you put him on the field he will run patterns the way he always have, by the seat of his bong.

He has to run the patterns the way Brady sees it. “Whatever receiver is out there you tell them to run a certain route, and they run it the way that you talked about it,” Brady said. “The ball is thrown. It’s caught. It’s a positive play. And then you do it again. If it’s a flip of the coin and 50-50 (ball), sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong, I mean nobody can really depend on that.” This offense relies on the QB and WRs seeing it the same.

Thinking has always been Gordon’s Achilles heel. “I’m not going to project anything,” Brady said. “I’m just going to be the positive, enthusiastic leader that I am and try to be a great quarterback and try to embrace whoever is on the team. We’ve all got to play a lot better than yesterday (Jags), that’s really where our focus should be.” But he can do it?

He is as physically talented a WR as there is in the NFL, or at least he was. We really don’t even know that anymore. We don’t even know if he is committed to this season. It seemed that is why the Browns finally ditched him. I mean, he could get high at halftime against the Lions, pull a Vontae Davis, or he could be the player everyone thinks he can be if he smashed his bong. 

4. Josh Gordon Is The Best WR Who You Don’t Want On Your Team: Part III– He is the most physically talented WR the Pats have had since Randy Moss. The comparison is perfect, except for maybe Cordarrelle Patterson. But while Patterson is as physically talented as the two, he does not get it mentally in the passing game. He does not have great instincts in the passing game.

While Moss had a screw loose, he got it on the field. He had an elite mental understanding of the game on the field. Gordon has that. Mentally he gets it on the field. However, if Moss had a screw loose, Josh has three or four screws particularly maladjusted. He is a car crash waiting to happen.

If he gets on the field, he will be playing on pure instinct. “Since the last time we met, we officially added Josh, and Cyrus to the roster,” BB said. “So it's good to get them here. I'd say really in both cases, those two guys have done about as much as they can do in the few days that they've been here, or been back in Cyrus' case. We'll see how it goes. I think Josh is a smart kid. He's worked hard. He's picked up a lot.” He will be on the field in Detroit.

He is veteran (or at least a semi-veteran;) enough to have a dozen or so plays he can run. "Well, it's taking a segment of whatever the total is, and taking the things that are most important, and building on that day-by-day as time goes on," BB said.

He can get open deep, and go up and get the ball better than anyone else on the roster. Gordon tore up the Patriots in 2013. "Well," BB said. "it was a chance to see him firsthand. Yeah!" The WR position is a complete mess for this team.

But if two outta three ain’t bad, than maybe a couple guys can develop into players. We don’t need them as much now. As always, the Pats aren’t building for the all-important Detroit game in September. The Pats are always average in September. They are building to be undefeated in December, January and (God help me;) February. They were 2 and 2 in September last season (and 0 and God damn 1 in February!).

September is an extension of Training Game for Belichick. It always has been. He knows that everything changes once the bullets start flying. That Preseason games are great practice, but still just practice. Once teams start scheming for the Pats, they will show BB what the Pats weaknesses are. Just like he will be trying to exploit their weaknesses, and thus revealing them to Patricia this week. The Pats are never really the Pats until December.

So the question BB is trying to figure out is who are Cyrus Jones, Cordarrelle Patterson, Josh Gordon, and Corey Coleman going to be in December? That is what this is all about. It will cost them games in September. It cost me sleep in September. But if we are undefeated in February than who could possible give a sssshhh… crap.

5. This Is The End, Beautiful Friend The End- The Pats have released 10 friggin’ WRs so far this season. “We've released a lot of players since the start of training camp,” BB said. “As has every other team in the league. We'll just keep working through our process and take it day-by-day, week-by-week and we'll see how it goes.” The Pats still have Corey Coleman hiding on the back of the roster, and brought my guy Cyrus Jones back (he is a game changer in the punting game, unlike no hands Riley;).

Jones is also a slot Corner the Pats can use, if he can stay healthy. “Cyrus was coming along, certainly making progress through camp. As you said, his window was smaller than. It was what it was,” BB said about cutting my guy! “It wasn't a full opportunity to evaluate him but we had to make a decision. So we made the decision that we made. Things have changed. And we're in a different place than we were in August.” Just put him on the damn field and watch him go!

Though I don’t think he is a one or two CB anymore, but I don’t see him as a Safety either. “Yeah, I don't know,” BB said (agreeing with me;). “He's an athletic player. He's done a lot of different things for us.” But for those who forgot about the damn Super Bowl! We still need a quick little Corner in the damn slot for 3rd and friggin’ 4th downs!

Plus, Cyrus played WR in high school, and even a little slot at Alabama (maybe they took him back to play a little WR as well;). "It would be impossible to teach somebody everything in a couple of days when other players have had months to learn it,” BB said. “That would be impossible." Which brings us back to Gordon and Coleman, and the deadly smell of desperation still wafting off the Pats WR-Corps as we head into Detroit. 

Corey Coleman is another interesting talent. He was great at Baylor, truly great. But he struggled to run NFL patterns. Cleveland released him because he couldn’t run patterns the way they wanted. But he can get open deep. And he is great at adjusting to the deep ball, and going up and getting it, like Gordon.

But he has to learn to run the right patterns. “Well, it was a different system,” BB said. “So we've gotten to know him a lot better. We know a lot more now than we did then. But again, he's a talented player.” He was an All-American at Baylor, and was one of the best college WRs ever.

But he struggled with it mentally in Cleveland. “He's a player we want to work with,” BB said. “We'll see how it goes. We haven't had him a long time but he's done a good job with the opportunities that he's had. We want to keep working with him. We'll see how it goes.” He was traded to the Bills this Preseason.

Then the Bills released him a couple weeks later, as he struggle to pick up their system. “I think we all know the draft is a pretty unscientific process,” BB said about Coleman being a 1st. “That's pretty well-documented with every team in the league every year at every position. You do the best you can but it's certainly far from perfection in that process.” Coleman was worthy of a 1st Round pick based on his tape at Baylor.

But that is one of the mysteries of the NFL Draft. Why do wingnuts like Moss and Gordon struggle off the field mentally, but on the field they are things of beauty. While Patterson and Coleman, who are just as physically gifted (though Coleman is a smaller guy) and are more mentally stable off the field (so far:), can’t seem to get it mentally on the field in the NFL? It is truly a mystery.

But this looks like the end for all four guys. Their last chance to prove they can stay and play in the NFL. The Pats desperately need all four guys to become productive members of Patriots' society. All four guys can impact the game in unique and explosive ways, if their minds are right. But this it. It is do or die time. This is the end.

 

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.

All's I want for Christmas is a

 

 

 

rapist supreme court judge, 

 

 

 

who lives to take away the right of Women! 

 

 

yay.

 

 

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!
