7-Things For Houston: Part II.

By TOM

2. Not A Rookie Anymore- This is not your old Texans. This is the new building Texans. The rookie QB is now a 2nd year veteran. "Offensively, when they had things rolling last year with Watson averaging 40 points a game," BB said. "We obviously saw the explosiveness in our game last year. So we have a lot to get ready for [him]." He has spent more than a year, and two training camps, in the system. 

With all due apologies to Hoyer, Watson was at a completely different level than Hoyer was last year when he was a rookie. "I think that every year's different and I think he realizes that. I think that obviously whatever happened last year, it was basically a six-game window into what he can do and that's what obviously teams have been studying a lot of relative to us this year," Houston HC O’Brien. "I think Deshaun works very hard. He is just not a guy that rests on any kind of laurels. He's a guy that really works hard to get better every day. He talks about that a lot. He wants to try to get one percent, two percent better at something every single day.

"It's a different year and there's always going to be adversity that you're going to have to deal with. Especially in this league, like I just said in the previous answer, there's a lot of tough games, lot of tough opponents and we'll deal with it as it comes." He was my top QB in the 2017 Draft.

In seven games with six starts, he led the Texan offense to 39-PPG. And he is now out of the tall grass! He threw 19-TDs, and rushed for two. He only threw for 8 INTs (which could have been a more rookie-like 20-24 if he stayed healthy). He completed 62% of his passes.

He is one of the smartest QBs I ever saw in college, and a stone cold winner. "He's a very talented player," BB said. "It's team defense. It's not one guy that can stop him. We're going to have to do a good job as a team. That's the way it always is when you play a good quarterback." He stepped in as a rookie, and took control of the Offense from Day One.

He only threw 15 passes in the Preseason, with 1 TD, and 1 INT. The problem is that Houston has a better defense than the Pats. So the Pats have to out score them. If Watson can lead this team to 40 points, the Pats are going to have trouble scoring that many points against this defense.

He showed he was a winner at Clemson. "It does, it does. He started back in OTAs, he participated in much of what we did during the offseason program," O'Brien said. "He was basically full-go during the offseason program. And like I've said before, he has been through it before.

"Unfortunately, he has been through it before at Clemson so he had a really good idea, good grasp of how the rehab process would go. He's a very mature guy, he's a very hard-working guy and he's been with us since we started back on April 18." Last season he was a winner against young QBs, but lost all three games against Veteran Winning QBs, including Brady.

That is a good sign for the Pats. "Deshaun is in that regard, very passionate about football. Loves to watch tape, loves to talk about the game, come in early, stay late," O’Brien said. "Always has good suggestions, ideas on game plans or certain things that maybe our defense was doing in training camp, how can we take advantage of that, this, that and the other whether it was a preseason game or against our own defense. So he really loves the game and it shows every day." But he is not a rookie anymore.

His next test is showing that he can win against NFL Veterans, and not just the flotsam and jetsam of NFL QBs. "We'll just watch Houston," BB said oddly. "I mean, if Watson's not in there, we'll watch Webb. I mean, it's not just one guy. They have other guys that can do it. So, you can watch two quarterbacks do it in their offense. That's probably as good of a look as you're going to get." I’ll take Joe Webb starting over Watson against the Pats any day, and I’m sure Belichick would as well. 

Watson is one of the most unique QBs since Steve Young. "It's hard. There's not many guys like that in the league. We had the same thing a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about Cam Newton," BB said. "The same thing: guys that are big, fast, athletic, can throw the ball all over the field. There's only a couple of them in the league and so to have them on your team would be unusual. You just do the best you can on that and try to give the defense the best look as you can at what they do. Sometimes that might be putting a receiver or somebody like that at quarterback, or we've used offensive linemen at running back against big backs to simulate that type of an athlete carrying the ball. If " I like that Cam comparison as well.

He is a true double threat, but he has more speed (like Young) than size and power (like Cam). "You've got guys that are unique players that have special skills then you can't replicate them. Neither can anybody else except for the team that has that guy," BB said. "You just try to do the best you can and take what you have and try to simulate it. Maybe it's two or three guys. Maybe one guy simulates the speed, maybe another guy simulates his passing skill, maybe it's not the same guy." But, if he continues to run too much, he will continue to get injured too much.

3. 3rd Place For Offensive MVP- The Offense is changing again this year. But more so than last year? With four of their top dudes from the past two seasons gone: Dion, Amendola, Mitchell, and Cooks. And with Edelman out for September, they are going to have to come up with new ways and new ideas for how to use personnel. This is going to be McDaniel’s most important season as an OC. The top two targets for Brady are mot going to be WRs.

We know Gronk is the man. But with Edelman out, James White become the next best option in the passing game. "We have a lot of good leaders on our team. I think it's a very deep group," BB said. "So I think the leadership extends far beyond the guys that were elected for that. James has done a great job for us. He's given us tremendous on and off-the-field leadership," Like I foretold before the second Preseason game, White has taken a big step up this past off-season.

It was so obvious in just a few days of practice. "That was a big jump for him," BB said. "Obviously, he had a good player playing ahead of him his rookie season. I think he was only active for two games. As we've seen from a lot of players, there's great development and jump from Year One to Year Two. It's pretty common." He was named a Team Captain for this season.

He is great chipping on rushers on the edge, top five in the NFL. "Again, he's done a great job for us both on and off the field. He's one of our most dependable players," BB said. "Everybody has a lot of confidence in him because he's earned it. He's earned that confidence and trust from his teammates and his coaches by doing it on a consistent basis. There's no real magic to that. It's just going out there and being consistent and dependable. He's done a great job of it." His ability to chip, and then get open in the flat, is a great weapon they have not taken advantage of yet.

He also looked like he took a step up in the run game. "It depends on what the player is asked to do, where he's coming from. James carried the ball a lot at Wisconsin," BB said. "He was involved some in the passing game. His development in the passing game has grown as he's had more experience and more opportunities in it here. I think when you look at it in that context, that's the explanation. Not that he couldn't do it, he just has more experience and more opportunity to do it." You have Brady and Gronk, but third on the Pats offensive MVP list in White.

Don’t forget, White just signed a big three-year extension. So he is going to be looking to justify that signing. White’s abilities to run, catch, and block for Brady in pass pro make him, maybe even, the third best offensive player when Edelman comes back. He should garner over a 1,000-yards rushing and receiving this season.

The Pats are going to need every bit of his talent this week. Especially chipping on Mercilus and Watt. He made some great blocks in the 2nd Preseason game. We saw him balance that out as a great weapon out of the backfield. He also lined up in the Slot, and looked comfortable running patterns. When you add that in with yards rushing, the Pats are going to need over a 100-yards from him rushing and receiving for them to win.

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!
