For Houston: Part III.
This Is The End, Beautiful Friend The End-
The Pats are thundering towards a precipice. BB is looks like he is
looking for a way out, and there is no way he is going to be working for Jonathon
when he becomes the Man (you can clearly see his distain). Kraft did not
look good the last time I saw him on TV. He looked like he quite know
where he was. And as a man who watched his father die from Alzheimer’s,
it scared the crap out me.
maybe Brady can play for four more years. The odds are not just against
him, it hasn’t been done before. When he goes, BB is gone, and the
Franchise will descend into chaos. Jonathon is the proverbial guy born on
3rd base, who thinks he was born on 1sr. He is a Patrick Sullivan waiting
those too young to know the inglorious Patriots past, it is not pretty.
And when BB and Brady are gone the losing (and revenge by all the other
NFL teams) will be ugly and relentless. The ownership is already
faltering. To what point I don’t know. But the Krafty-Kraft kids have
already sued Bob. I can smell the utter decay of the chaos to come.
will not be pretty in a year or two (Or four? Please!). When the five
B’s leave (BB, TB12, and BoB;) the Pats will be the worst Franchise in
the NFL again. It will be on a Mark Wilson level (the worst starting QB I
ever saw play in the NFL was his pathetic year here, where he started what
seemed like an endless series of tragedies).
Pats Dynasty is going to end in a Shakespearian Tragedy: endless cruelty,
incompetence, and tears (probably mine;). The greatest QB of all time will
be gone. The greatest HC of all time will be gone. The greatest TE of all
time will be gone. There might even be a murder or two, as the son seeks
to kill the ghost of his great father’s glory.
a piece of work is a man. How noble in reason. How infinite in faculty. In
form, in moving, how express and admirable. In action how like an angel.
In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world. The paragon of
animals!” Hamlet said. “And yet to me, what is this quintessence of
the genius sails off into the fate of the great Atlantic, and a great
storm ship wreaks him on an un-deserted island (Nantucket:), and
crossdressing, love, and hijinks ensue, and maybe even a ballad or two.
madam. And to comfort you with chance, assure yourself, after
our ship did split. When you and those poor number saved with you,
hung on our driving boat, I saw your brother, most provident in peril,
bind himself,” the Captain said to Viola. “Courage and hope both
teaching him the practice. To a strong mast that lived upon the sea.
Where, like Arion on the dolphin's back, I saw him hold acquaintance with
the waves. So long as I could see.”
we will watch the sad and inevitable conflict as mad King Lear’s legacy
is torn apart by his Trumpian children. As his brain descends into anarchy
the betrayals, incompetence, and lawsuits will send the glory of the old
Patriots into a dream of glories that once was:
no, no, no! Come, let's away to prison. We two alone will sing like birds
I' the cage. When thou dost ask me blessing, I'll kneel down, and ask of
thee forgiveness.” King Lear said. “So we'll live, and pray, and sing,
and tell old tales, and laugh at gilded butterflies. And
hear poor rogues talk of court news. And we'll talk with them too. Who
loses and who wins; who's in, who's out. And take upon's the mystery
of things. As if we were God's spies. And we'll wear out, jn a wall'd
prison, packs and sects of great ones that ebb and flow by the moon.”
the Patriot glory long gone, we will look to a Coach and a QB to bring us
back. But the magic that made BB and Brady will be long gone and
imprisoned in some ancient tome. And the dying dynasty will be looking for
a warrior to quarterback them back to glory. I don’t think it’s
he does remind me of Matt Cassel. Who played for a long time in the NFL.
and stepped in and replaced Brady when he injured his knee in 2008 and
threw for 21 TDs after a terrible start. He then led KC to an AFC West
title in 2010, and throw for 27 TDs that year. He made the Pro Bowl as
well. I think that's the best you can hope for from him.
So Today is the Day:
So today is the day to start looking at QBs to replace Brady, as we
already have Josh McDaniels, the likely replacement for Belichick. Josh is
going to need a QB, and fast. There are some interesting options out there
today. Though not all are ready for the Draft next year. Like Alabama’s
amazingly impressive QB Tua Tagovailoa. He was as impressive a Sophomore
I’ve seen in his first start last week. He reads and anticipates it as
well as any young QB I’ve seen in college.
of the most interesting aspect of Tua is that he was the Number One Dual
Threat QB coming out a couple years ago. He is a great runner. But in the
game last week against Louisville, he was clearly a throw first QB, and
not the other way around, like Jalen Hurts. He is as good a scrambler as
Hurts. But he reads it, anticipates it, and throws it so well that he
isn’t a one read and bail QB. He wants to win the game with his brains,
eyes, and arm. Instead of his feet.
is playing Arkansas State, which is not a must watch game by any stretch.
They will beat the living crap out of that team. Tua won’t be in the
2019 Draft, but in a year or two he will be entering the NFL. The Pats
need to take notice now, because Brady is 41 going on 45. The Pats could
have a top pick in two or three years:
State at Alabama 2:30 pm ESPN2:
from last week against Louisville:
* Anfernee Jennings, LB (Jr., 6-3, 262)-
Jennings continues to come out of the bottom of piles. Nice speed
around the ORT tight into the QB.
* Raekwon Davis, DL (Jr., 6-7, 308)-
They will line him up on the Nose in some nickel formations. He has
some interesting speed stunting outside around the corner. He can
shed the double team at the point, and jump on the RB.
just can't run to his side. He finds the RB at the point every time.
They will double him consistently in pass pro. Teams don't want him
near their QB.
*Christian Miller- LB Jr 6-4, 230-
Excellent quicks on the edge to redirect off the RB on the Option,
and slam the QB. He seems to have that knack for hitting the
quarterback. He will fake drop, and then charge into the QB as he
throws. He looks like he might have lost a little speed from all the
Terrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama-
He can leap through the line and panic the QB into a throw away.
Good size and speed. He can really move off the edge. I thought he
was smaller than his listed weight, because of the way he moves on
Mack Wilson- 6-2, 230, OLB,-
He is the leader and signal caller of the defense. Needs to get
bigger. He gets to the RB quick, but the RB can run right over him.
He can knock the WR flying back onto his back after the catch. He is
a great run blitzer off the edge.
Quinnen Williams-DL, 6-4, 289, Soph-
He has a nice burst right up the gut. Terrific inside rusher. He has
good timing to leap up and slap the ball down. He is a sophomore who
will be the next great one, once Davis leaves for the NFL. He had
two PBUs in the first half against Louisville.
Jonah Williams, OL (Jr., 6-5, 305)-
sometimes just doesn't block anybody. When he blocks down on the DT
he knocks him off his feet, and can then go and catch the ILB.
power blocking down on DT. Consistently hits the DT, and then hits
and seals the ILB. When he is balanced and focused, he can make pass
pro look easy.
Lester Cotton- SR- 6-4, 324-
He can take the big hit from the blitzer right in the facemask, and
get his head back down and stone him. He is a tough kid.
plays with some nasty. He is a big fat man. Explodes off the snap
with some great power. He moves big DTs back consistently. He can
move forward in pass pro, grab the DT, and just hold him in place.
Great strong hands and leverage.
Ross Pierschabacher- OC, 6-4, 303,-
Nice seal blocker right off the snap. He can grab the DT off the
snap on the play action, and the drive him back.
*Damien Harris- RB, Jr, 5-11, 216-
Great short yardage runner. He looks like he runs a foot off the
ground on short yardage. Knows how to follow blockers. He will run
into his blockers for a few more, when the defenders are all closing
in. Great receiver crossing on the second level, and then he can
really run after the catch.
receiver out of the backfield, and once he is outside he can hurt
DBs. He can really hit in pass pro. He can give a thundercrack block
in pass pro that you hear over everything. He will also lead block
for other RBs. He run great lateral burst and power.
6-1, 218, QB-
He was a force against Louisville last week. "What I saw there
is when that ball leaves Tua's hand, it looks like it’s rocket
propelled with an internal guidance system," ex-Patriots
OC Trevor Matich said-. "It is astonishing how that thing
flies out of his hand and then finds its way down into the exact
perfect spot over and over again. "I think this will be the
most fun season from an entertainment standpoint that we’ve seen
from Alabama in memory." But he is still young and needs some
Itis funny to remember that Louisville was Tua's first start.
"He needs to make sure he doesn’t take the big sack,"
Matich said. "He needs to make sure he doesn’t force the ball
into a place it shouldn’t go. He needs to not believe his own hype
because the laws of physics still apply to him. That football will
not disappear inside a defender’s chest and then materialize on
the opposite side into the hands of his receiver. So he’s got to
make sure he stays football humble." I could not have been more
impressed with him last week.
