7-Things For Jacksonville: Part II.

By TOM

4. We've Got A Gronk- The Pats offense is going to be critical this week. "Defensively, all of the numbers kind of speak for themselves. They pretty much led the league in every category last year. They're all back," BB said. "And they're all good and they have a lot of depth. They had another return for a touchdown last week against the Giants. It's a very disruptive group. We've got to do a good job of taking care of the ball and try to create some positive plays." They are playing the best and fastest defense in the NFL.

They also might have the best and biggest-mouthed Corner in the NFL. But Ramsey can back it up. Gronk is the Pats best receiver. Sooooo if you have the best CB in the NFL than you put him on the Gronk. I would be shocked if he wasn't covering the Gronk all game. If they don't shadow the Gronk with Ramsey, the Pats win.

The Pats problem is that the Jags also have the best rush in the game. The Pats O-line was great last week against one of the top D-lines in the NFL. They will have to be better this week. This is the best D-line in the NFL. They are a great blend of veterans.

I mean, who else are you going to put Ramsey on? McCarron? Nope, KP-list. Chad Hansen? No, he was cut. Edelman? No, he's home detoxing from PEDs. Patterson? No, he can't run patterns. I mean, are you going to put him on Hogan? LOL. 

I would pay money to see Gronk Vs Ramsey: The Grudge Match Part Deux. "Hey, like I said, I'm ready for all situations. Definitely not backing down in any situation, and I'm sure it's going to happen," Gronk said. "I'm sure he's gonna come inside, I'm gonna go outside. Whatever it is? It's going to happen. It makes it fun though." It sure does.

Gronk knows this is not the game to playing with new WRs. "They're impressive," the Gronk said about the best D in the NFL. "They're fast. They're strong. They're physical. So I've got to be prepared this week. That's all my worries are." Gronk V. Ramsey, I can't wait to see!

The Pats problem is that they also have the best rush in the game. The Pats O-line was great last week against on of the top D-lines in the NFL. They will have to be better this week. This is the best D-line in the NFL. Brown, Cannon, and Waddle have to be better this week. Though Brown was at an All-Pro level last week.

No team has had an answer to our Hulk. The Jags might actually have it! I mean, the Jags might put Ramsey on Mathew Slater, and give the Gronk a few thousand receiving in this game. But does that make any sense to even the worst HC anywhere. The Pats Wide Receiver Corps is so pathetic that BB, literally, just signed three WRs this week, and I think Ramsey could cover all three of them at once.

So not putting him on Gronk would be inconceivably stupid. "I’m gonna go out there and do whatever Coach asks me to do," Ramsey said about covering Gronk today. "To be honest, if it happens-it happens. If it doesn’t-it doesn’t. I’m very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball. Whoever goes against him, I’m very confident that they’ll hold it down, and I’ll do my job and I’ll hold it down where I’m at." There is only one legit Number One WR on this team.

We got a Gronk. "He's good. He’s good now. We ain’t gonna get it twisted. He's good," Ramsey said. "But like you saying this to me, is this supposed to bring fear to me or something? I don’t fear no man, period. So he's gonna have to come out there and line up on me." They've got a Ramsey. Let's rock 'n roll. 

5. Threes a Crowd- The Pats WR-corps has been so desperate that they keep picking up stragglers. They signed three WRs this week: Corey Coleman, Kenyon Barner, and Bennie Fowler. I liked all three in college. Coleman and Barner are small guys, but have the speed and elusiveness to have a chance in the NFL. Barner was also a great kick returner at Oregon.

Bennie Fowler (Michigan State? I think?) was a great story of working his way into an NFL prospect. The kid has moxie. He is bigger than the other two, and impressed me his senior year. But his hands were always a little shaky at MSU.

He is the most experienced NFL player of the three. He played four years for the Broncos. He garnered 698-yards on 56 catches with five TDs in three seasons on the field (he was placed on the practice squad as a rookie). He reminded me a little of David Givens at 6-1, 212, only Givens had bigger stronger hands. He is the size.

Kenyon Barner could be a special teams maven the Pats. He was as dynamic and quick as player as you could see in college. He was a do everything guy for Oregon. You could see him returning punts, end-around, or screens this week if he gets on the field. He is kind of a Cordarrelle-Lite.

He was a great returner, and he should be returning punts if he is activated for this game. He has the quicks to be a good slot guy, and the sizzle to be a special team nightmare for opponents. He is the quick.

Coleman was a speed demon at Baylor. He was the star college player of the three. In Baylor's wacky offense it seemed he caught a few 20-plus yard receptions every game. He doesn't have great size, but he can fly and catch any ball thrown to him. I've seen him make some of the most spectacular deep catches I've seen in college football.

He snagged 56 receptions for five TDs, and 718-yards for the (gulp;) Browns. That is not bad in a young WR's first two seasons in the NFL. He was the most productive, in only two seasons, of the three. He can make elite adjustments to the deep ball (which he'll have to do with Brady throwing deep;). He is the speed.

But the Homeys just ain't ready yet (sorry, I've been watching In Livin; Color reruns;). "Good. I mean, it's not a lot. But I mean (we're friggin' desperate;)," BB stumbled, trying to explain how it is okay to add three WRs on Week Two. "Barner has a lot of experience. He's a smart kid. He picks things up pretty quickly. Fowler, (the) same thing. Corey's been with three teams in a short amount of time, so with less experience. But Barner and Fowler have played a lot of football." This is not the friggin' week to be friggin' desperate at any position on offense.

The story of the early part of this season will be the terrible roster building of the Offense. "When players come in at the beginning, they're able to get a progression of installation: learn from the bottom-up, build a foundation, work their way up," BB said. "Now it's more of a game-plan situation. We don't have all of our plays in for this game. We would never do that. But the ones we're running this week, those are the ones that we'll focus on." The lack of NFL WRs, or having three new guys who can't possibly know the offense in this game, could likely cost them the game this week.

They are going to have three WRs, maybe on the field, who don't know the whole playbook. "We'll try to catch up on as much as we can but we have to prioritize what's going in for this game, what we need for this game, so we'll start with that first," BB said. "It's a little bit of a backwards way of doing it, but it's the best way to prepare for a short window. And try to catch up on all of the other things as much as we can: the terminology, all of the fundamental things, things that we're not going to be doing this week that are important. But we won't get to all of those this week." They will have see the field in specific instances, to run a specific play.

Obvious all three have not translated to the NFL as well as I expected. But the real story here is how much they are needed. The Pats were woefully unprepared to start the season at WR. Riley McCarron was not an NFL player. That was obvious in a few practices. It was just a matter of time before he was gone after he fumbled that Punt, and he was terrible on punt returns in the Preseason anyway.

I am as excited for this kickoff, as I am dreading it. I don't know if it will be good to see them on the field, but it will be interesting. I mean, they will have to be on the field. They are out of WRs! They have two starters (Patterson and Hogan), and that's it! Oh, and special teams maven Mathew Slater, yay.

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.

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!
