Preseason Game Two: Part II.


1st 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 starting opposite Clayborn at D-end.

Shelton 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.

The 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.

In 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.

However, 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.

They 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.

Davis 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 uncatchable.

2nd 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;).

As 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.

He 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;).

Crossen 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.

He 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.

3rd 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.

Butler 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 blockers.

Clayborn 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. 

McCourty 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.


Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:


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. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:












When you have 


a Bone-Spurred Draft-Dodging Coward


For President?


And you see him attack an American Hero,


















"William H. McRaven, a retired Navy admiral, was commander of the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014. He oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.


"Dear Mr. President:

"Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.

"Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.
Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs.


"A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

"Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.

"If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be.


Hey Trump, go pee in a hole!
