off I just want to thank all the fans of this site. I have been
promoting my books for sale primarily on this site. As a result, I
have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
Game Two: Part II.
and 10, the Pats had some actual starters in the game to start. Clayborn
will be battling it out to start across from Flowers with Wise. Likely,
both will be starting in different games for different schemes, and will
be playing starter minutes. However, some guy name Keionta Davis was
startingopposite Clayborn at
is going to start a lot of games this year. Malcolm Brown is being
inserted as a starter, because they want him to become the starter. Or
this is the last chance salon, and they are showcasing him for a trade.
Davis had an excellent game against Philly's starters. He is a VERY
interesting DL. They list him at 280, which is big for a 4-3 D-end. But it
is not big for a 3-4 D-end.
interesting part is that Shelton and Brown look and play more like Nose
Tackles than D-tackles. And the other (listed) starter was Derek Rivers
(but he didn't actually start). He was listed to start at OLB, as in a 3-4
OLB. They have been lining him up as a OLB in odd and even fronts.
Sometimes he puts his hands down, but he has played every down like a 3-4
OLB, which he played in college at Youngstown ST. With Patricia gone, it
sure looked to me like they are switching to a more 3-4 scheme.
today's NFL the Pats will play it as multiple as possible, with every kind
of multiple front imaginable. Last year they were a base 4-3 team, with
4-3 principles. More shoot the gap then two gap (but there will always be
two-gap responsibilities in a BB defense). So (in the two 1st Quarters we
have seen;) they have moved back to a more BB defense. That has odd
fronts, run first defense, and two gaps. That is what Shelton and Brown
especially do. They are stack and shed DTs, who were great the whole half
two gapping right in front of the QB.
this was an Even front with Davis in, instead of Rivers. They lined up in
their 4-3 Nickel (which just means 5-DBs instead of 4), with Chung in at
the Will (Weakside, QB's left, Linebacker). But Chung shifted into the
Slot as the Eagles went empty. The RB motioned way outside, and the WR
shifted inside. So Chung went into the slot to cover the WR. Bentley
stepped outside to take the RB outside the numbers.
had Bentley, whose main concern left is coverage, step all the way outside
and cover the RB one on one (it was beautiful to see;). The RB just took
off straight down the sideline. "We were pretty much in man-to-man
coverage," Bentley said. "[Foles] threw it deep, [I] played the
ball. Kind of how you draw it up. Just do my job on that play." He
had good man coverage going down the sideline.
had a nice Bullrush. He grabbed the Right Tackle's arm, as he got even
with the QB. He pulled the ORT aside and got a lane to hit Foles. Clayborn
however got to Foles as he threw. He bulled the OLT back, and jabbed let hand
in Foles face as he threw. Bentley stayed right on the RB's inside
shoulder. He was so tight on the RB that he had to push him off when he
saw the pass coming his way. But the pass was terrible. I would have liked
to seen Bentley make a play on the ball in the air, but the pass was
and 10, the Pats lined up in a 4-3. with both Clayborn and Davis standing
up. Chung was at the Will again, with Bentley as the Mike (Middle LB), and
Van Noy at the Sam (Strongside, QB's right, LB). They also had their
interesting 7th Round pick Keion Crossen starting at Corner. He played
very well in this game, almost great (for a rookie;). However, he
committed a large number of penalties (that I may or may not agree with;).
we saw on the other side a lot, the refs were practicing some of the new
calls they were going to have to make. I thought they did pick on the
rookie a little. However, he did get too grabby when he got nervous. He
has some suddenness when he has to turn and bail.
did show some great feet, quicks, and speed. "Keion did play quite a
bit. We had a couple corners that didn’t play tonight. So the guys that
we had played a lot," BB said. "Those guys got a lot of playing
time. We’ll build on the things with all players. We'll build on the
things they did well, and we'll try to correct the mistakes and
adjustments that they need to make. Hopefully, we can work on those this
week. And improve on them next week. He falls into that category. Really,
so does everybody else." He showed a lot of potential in the 1st Half
(if he can stop playing like a grabby rookie;).
looked like a practice Squad guy to me. He lined up across the line from
the outside WR in the Stack on the strongside. He read the Toss to his
side quicker than most rookies. He shot the outside gap, and the blockers
ignored the rookie Corner on the run play. He crashed into the RB, five
yard behind the line.
actually did well. He went low and tried to grab and wrap him up, but the
NFL RB was able to run through his near form tackle. Van Noy and Keionta
Davis swooped in to steal the rookies tackle. Bentley got there a little
bit later. But that TFL was still the property of the rookie.
and 16, the Pats lined up in a five-guys-on-the-line Dime, 2 up 3 down.
With Clung in as the Mike (Middle LB). Clayborn and Wise were the D-ends,
and Adam Butler was the NT. Van Noy and Rivers were the two LBs. Van Noy
stepped out a little, and showed he was dropping. Rivers started twitching
next to Butler on the QB's left, and showed he was rushing.
and Rivers twisted in the middle of the line. "We still got a little
ways to go, but we are what we put on Tape," Butler said, about how
awesome Tape is. "I think we did pretty good. But like I said we
still got to keep playing." Rivers and Butler occupied three
and Wise both hit the QB from opposite sides at about the same time, with
about the same technique, in about the same rush. It looked like Clayborn
hit the QB as he threw with a slap, and Wise got his hand up in his face.
They both crashed into him after he threw.
picked it off. "For me it just felt good because it is a blessing
every day to be able to play," Jason said. "For me to be able to
be a part of this organization and take the field with the guys in every
opportunity I have to play a national football game is such a tremendous
opportunity and blessing. I never take that for granted." But the
Refs ruled it hit the ground, to force the punt.
