7-Things For Houston: Part I.

By TOM

The Pats finally cut down to their team, but there really weren’t any surprises. Just middling veterans who were replaced by younger guys. That is what happens every year. Marquis Flowers was not really a loss. He was a low level veteran who could help a team when injuries struck. Bentley essentially took his spot. Is there anyone in their right mind who wanted Flowers over Bentley. Bentley is not just a younger player, he is a better player.

Riley McCarron was too small, and very disappointing on punt returns in the Preseason games. Valentines was playing with the 3rd and 4th team. Gillislee was obviously behind Hill since early August. Cyrus Jones was my guy, but he couldn’t stay healthy. If you can’t stay on the field than you can’t help the team. Webb was a 2nd Half wonder, who dominated against third and forth stringers.

Plus, Webb, Valentine, and McCarron were resigned to the Practice Squad. They also resigned to the Practice Squad: Cole Croston, Danny Etling, James Ferentz, Trent Harris DL, and some guy named Jomal Wiltz CB. I’m not sure anyone even knows who the rest of the JAGs cut were. Etling showed he had an NFL arm, but he was still lost in the tall grass. He also played better last season when they rolled him out, and he threw on the move. He is not a straight up drop back QB, like Brady.

Much more interesting are the pickups of Amara Darboh and Chad Hansen. I loved both guys coming out in the Draft. I had them rated higher than most. Both guys have great hands, and were very productive in college. Darboh had excellent production at Michigan, where he played against top competition. However, Darboh failed his physical and was cut, which also explains why he has not succeeded in the NFL.

I hate to go PAWW on you (Pats Average White Wide-receivers;), but it is what it is. Hansen was a productive small school kid who transferred to Cal.  Hansen runs great routes. He has good size, and is desperately needed in the first four weeks. And of course he had an elite 3-Cone and Short Shuttle at the Combine. A 6.74 3-Cone and a 4.13 SS for a 6-2 guy were great numbers, and certainly something BB would take notice of at the Combine.

He bounced around a small school, and no man's land. Then ended up having two excellent seasons at Cal. He was elite his last season at Cal:

Earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors from the Associated Press, Athlon Sports, ESPN.com and Phil Steele, as well as a second-team selection of the league's coaches.

Ranked third in the country in per-game receptions (9.2) and fourth in receiving yards (124.9) in 2016, while he was also 12th nationally in receptions (92), 17th in receiving yards (1,249) and tied for 22nd in touchdown receptions (11) despite missing two contests due to injury and finishing with 10 games played and nine starts.

Led the Pac-12 in receiving yards per game, receptions per game, receptions and receiving yards while he was also fourth in the conference in touchdown catches.

Hansen is kind of a cross (hopefully) between Hogan and Edelman. Like Hogan, he had that knack for getting open deep in college. But like Edelman, he showed that knack for getting open in pattern in college. Which is a rarer trait than people think. Edelman gets open running patterns all over the field, while most WRs, including Hogan, don’t. Hansen had that knack at Cal.

Here is his profile from the 2016 Draft: Chad Hansen: Wacky Spread WR.

 

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.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:

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!
