Doesn't Know What he Doesn't Know.
Belichick took a big chance with Patterson. "I don’t know what you’ve been through in the past, but basically, we get the job done here," Patterson said. "We’re gonna make you the player that you should be." First he has to learn to run, not just NFL patterns, but Patriots patterns.
He doesn't know what he does know. "There’s going to be something each day that you don’t know and you thought you knew," Patterson said. "You wake up, and it’s something different. 'Oh, I didn’t know that.' You only know what you think you know." The question is can he be humble enough to not just get by on physical talent, but learn how to get more from his mental talent.
That has been his problem since he came into the League. "Just put me on the field. It will take care of itself," Patterson said he told McDaniels. "That’s something I’ve been doing my whole life, making plays, playmaker. I don’t like when somebody tries to label me as this or that. I just go out there, and do what I’m supposed to do. And have fun while I’m doing it." Yeah, that ain't gonna work.
That is not how it is done here, and it has not worked for him so far. He is All-Pro KR, not an All-Pro WR, and he sucked as a KR last season. Having Brady doing some individual work with patterns on Wednesday was exciting to see. Brady only throws to guys who run patterns the way he likes. He showed the breaks he expects when the Corner is in transition from his pedal, and where he wants Patterson to be. Paterson was smart enough to take note.
On Thursday he was running patterns outside. Both situations came up, the inside and the outside press coverage that he and Brady were practicing together on Wednesday. It wasn't perfect. He struggled a little with his hands shoving off on the break inside. However, Brady threw him the ball both times on the Comebacks, and he caught them. That is how you get Brady to throw you the ball. Make the adjustments the way he sees the game.
The most important thing I saw in
Thursday practice was Patterson seeing what Brady saw, and making the adjustments he showed him;
That where the way he saw the game. He did another little push off, a third time late in practice on a Comeback outside.
So why is that pattern so important? Because defenders have to respect Patterson outside speed. "I was excited," Patterson said about coming to the Pats. "Like you said, they make it to the Super Bowl almost every year. If they don’t, they win it." He was a Deep-threat/returner in Minny, and he wants to be more in New England.
Running patterns, and running patterns Brady's way, is the next adjustment he has to make to become a legit NFL WR. "I went up there the day after I got traded, and just talked to Josh about, 'what am I good at? And how can I help the
offense?'" Patterson said. "And I just basically told him, put me on the field. It’ll take care of itself. That’s something I’ve been doing my whole life: making plays, playmaker. I don’t like when somebody tries to label me as this and that. I just go out there and do what I’m supposed to do and have fun doing it." Corners are going to bail quicker on Patterson than other WRs, because he is know for his size speed ratio, and not his intricate pattern running.
So coming back will leave him wide open. But after three or four catches the CB has to make an adjustment. So after Brady hit him with three comebacks, the CBs adjusted. Then just at the end of team practices, Patterson took off down field, and Brady threw him a beauty. He ran by the CB, like he was watching butterflies in the outfield. Patterson pulled in the easy 70-yard TD pass to end Practice. And don't kid yourself, that play was set up by the work he and Brady did on Wednesday, and the great break-off Patterns
he ran earlier on Thursday.
He set them up by running patterns the way Brady sees it. "To have a guy like Cordarrelle, there’s nobody like that in the league," Slater said. "It’s exciting to think about the possibilities, but there are no guarantees. We have to lay the foundation, each and every day in practice. It’s not just going to happen." BB took a bet that Patterson could be as explosive in the offense as he was on Special Teams, and it paid off on
I'm not saying that I believe. But I'm saying' there's a chance...
A Citizen! Not a Subject!
is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the
cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.
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:
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:
is now committing open TREASON, and bragging about it to his political prisoners
at his Hitler-style loser rallies. Trump is now obviously attempting
to overthrow our Democracy. It is no longer a question is him refusing to
give up his Presidency! It is only a matter of how he thinks he can get
away with it.
you remember during the Campaign when Trump refused to say he would submit
to a peaceful transition of power. Well that was widely misunderstood. The
Peaceful Transition of Power is imperative from the LEAVING President, not
the INCOMING President elect. The question was never Obama transitioning
power to Trump. Who didn't understand that, and though they were talking
about him giving up his presidency if he was elected, and took a month to
finally say yes.
