7-Things For Houston: Part IV.

By TOM

6. I Don’t Know- It is tough to say what is going to happen in the first game of the season, because we don’t know. Heck, even BB doesn’t really know what this team is going to be. He makes more changes during the season than any other coach, because no coach knows what his team is now. Every team in the NFL is different now than they are going to be in December and the Playoff, if they make it.

So how is this humble (okay egotistical maniac;) pundit supposed to know? “And that's what we're all here for, no one knows what the outcomes are going to be,” Brady said. “You put everything you can into it. It comes down to a lot of players on the same page trying to make the right plays and throws, catches, blocks, tackles, all the fundamental stuff which we work pretty hard at. I mean, it's a long season, we're getting tested right off the bat and hopefully we can perform really well.” The Pats are the best team in the League at building their team and improving during the season.

They always use September as more of a barometer for change. They build and change and develop the young guys. JC Jackson is not going to be playing very much in September. But he will develop, and maybe there’s an injury, and he’s the Nickel or Dime in December. It’s the same at every position. Maybe my guy Jeremy Hill starts this week (he better;). But he ain’t starting straight games16 games. James White is going to get the most snaps, and Sony Michel might be the guy in December.

I mean, we really have no idea what the hell the receiving Corps are going to be. “I have confidence in them certainly. You know, Phillip [Dorsett] and Chris [Hogan] have obviously played a lot. I've played a lot with them last year,” Brady said. “And Cordarrelle's new. And he's done some good things, obviously, it's the reason why he's here.  He's a really good player and he's been productive in the league.” Can Patterson finally develop his vast athletic skills into receiving production, and not just on kicks.

Most of these guys are not the players they are going to be in December. “To be on this team, you've got to be a good football player. The guys that are out there, I have certainly a lot of confidence in. We're all going to be learning on the fly and you've got to build as the season goes,” Brady said. “We're in a certain place now, but this is not where we want to be as we get through the season. Every week we want to build on things. And there's no way to replicate what we're about to go up against. And that's why you got to through it. So we'll see where we're at.” They are in the fire now, and will be tempered in the hot coals during the season.

This is going to be an ugly game. Neither team is realty ready, especially on offense, where cohesion. rhythm, and repetition are so important. Both offensives have barely played their QBs in the Preseason. The defenses however, have been on the field for full quarters and halves. With Edelman out, White and Hogan will take a step up in the progression to 2nd and 3rd options.

Brady will be looking a ton at Gronk, because they have years of experience together. “I think that's part of the challenge of this particular position (WR) is there's a lot of moving parts from year-to-year,” Brady said. “You may be really good offensively in one area and through free agency. (And) through guys (for) whatever (reason like), competition, they don't make it. And you've got to morph the offense to what the guys do well. I've been in the same offense for a long time. So in a lot of ways, the system's morphed to what my skillsets have been and other people have to come in and really fill what that particular role is for them.” I mean, who knows what Brady is going to get from Dorsett and Patterson?

If he doesn’t know than how the hell can I. “It's a tough system to play in for a receiver. I definitely don't think it's easy,” Brady said. “And I know that because (I’m a pain in the ass;). [And] we've had a lot [WRs] come from a lot of different places: and lot of memorization, lot of being on the same page with the quarterback, and changing routes at the line of scrimmage, changing routes during the middle of play. And you got to be on the same page. So, we try to morph the offense to what we all do a good job at and those things change over the course of the season with different guys that come in and out. So, hopefully we can do a good job of that this week.” I got a lot of crap, from a lot of idiots, for daring to suggest that James White is their Number Two receiver.

Yet, we got three WRs on the active roster for this game, without a true Number Two, never mind a Number One: Hogan, Dorsett, and Patterson. I was very impressed with Dorsett in practice, but he didn’t bring it to the field in the games. But they might have been pulling the reins on him a little, so Houston couldn’t see his real tape. I was really impressed with Patterson working with Brady on patterns. He just has to hit him short, and let Patterson's elite ability to run in chaos after the catch take over.

They don’t have to throw the ball to him forty to fifty yards downfield, that’s for Dorsett. Throw it to Patterson short and let him run. A Jet-sweep to a guy with his size, return ability, and incredible speed, needs to happen. Are you telling me he can’t run a bubble screen? He is not an intricate route runner. He is a gimmick guy that coaches and QBs ruin by trying to get fancy.

The good news is that the Pats defense came together easier this preseason. I love-love-love their new D-line. It is not on Houston’s level, but it is pretty damn good. Rowe looked like a Number One Corner in the Preseason, and Gilmore is a Number One Corner. The LBs also looked great, and hopefully will be better with Hightower in fulltime. But the Pats defense always gets better as the season moves on.

The best news is we’ve got a Gronk. “Everything changes. I mean, preseason football: it's high-level football, but when it comes down to the regular season, it's even higher-level football,” the Gronk said. “Everything's just faster, quicker and you've just got to be thinking all the time. You've got to be on top of your game mentally and physically because it's bring-it time.” So Patriots Assemble! It’s time!

7. Pats Win- To me the biggest factor in this game, that we can see before the game, is the Pats are at Home. I’m not sure I’d pick the Pats if this game was in Houston.

But we’ve got Brady. While Deshaun Watson has played in seven games, Brady has played in eight Super Bowls.

The Pats pass rush was phenomenal this Preseason, and Flowers hasn’t even played a snap yet. He is their best rusher, and when you add in Clayborn, Rivers, Wise, and even Shelton and Guy, they are going to give Watson a lot of trouble. The Pats also have big Corners, which is important against Hopkins, who led the NFL with 13 TD catches last season.

Neither team is really ready for this game. But the Pats starting defense was spectacular this Preseason. Hightower was notably missing, but Van Noy brought his game to a new level. They have to let him continue to blitz, which is what he did best at BYU. Bentley was their best LB against the run. Chung was incredible. Butler, Brown, and Keionta Davis also added to the rush. Shelton, Guy, Bentley, and even Van Noy were spectacular against the run.

Now I know everything changes on defense during the Regular Season, when offenses actually scheme against them. But I think the defense and offense do just enough to win this game at Home. It doesn’t have to be pretty, but they have to win this game. These two teams are very likely to be meeting in the Playoffs, and the Pats want to play that one in the snow.

Pats 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!
