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.
The Pats want this game more than any other game so far this year, for
obvious reasons. "Yeah, I think it's more so what we do when the game
kicks off as opposed to what happens before the game or during the
week," TB12 said. "You get into a bunch of trash talk and you
know us, we've never got into that stuff because in the end, it's just a
big waste of energy. You focus on the things you need to do to help the
team win and that's to play well and execute and spend your time on what's
going to happen from the point when the game kicks off to when it ends.
That's where our focus is, that's where it always will be. We'll go in
there, we'll be focused, we'll be ready to go, and we'll go out there and
try to play a lot better than the last time we played them." The Pats
won't say it, but the bullying of two rookies minding their own business
on the sideline, really pissed them off.
if you watched the Tape of it, Jacoby and Mitchell were just walking down
the sideline in a personal conversation. They weren't sticking their chest
out, or yelling, or looking for trouble. They weren’t even looking the
Bills way. When the Bills DB (and your can read that both ways) came over
to cheap shot Jacoby, you can see it startled him, because you could see
the two rookies were so intent on their conversation that they had no Idea
that he was even there. Never mind that he was rushing over to cheap shot
them from behind.
the Pats players are always about maintaining discipline. "That's
always key," McCourty said. "I think we're a team that does a
good job of turning the page. What happened last game really doesn't
matter. All that matters is going out there and playing well and trying to
get a win. Discipline is something that we always talk about. That's how
you create winning football plays and you don't hurt yourself. We try to
pride ourselves on being a disciplined football team and it'll definitely
show up Sunday like it does every week." They won't start the talk
until the whistle blows.
are masters of saying the right thing. "No. That was that game. It's
got no bearing on this game," Slater said. "We're just going to
focus on going out and playing football. They came in here and did what
they needed to do the first game and we didn't have an answer for them, so
hopefully we can keep that from happening again." But don't think for
a second that they won't take some matters into their own hands on the
Bills keep pretending that it was no big deal to ambush two rookies who
had no idea what was going on. No
I mean with us, just go out and warm up," Rexy said. "That's
what you do but any of the extracurricular things, you know, there's
absolutely zero focus on that, and shouldn't be any focus on that. It's
just about playing games. I mean, if people want to show how tough they
are, put the boxing gloves on and get in the ring or something. That might
be more impressive. I don't want Gronk by the way. But I definitely don't
want to see that happen and our focus is 100 percent on the game and doing
the very best we possibly can." They were the ones who put on the
boxing gloves, and then attack two rookies from behind.
Bills are also missing their best Patriot's killer, Shady McCoy. "LeSean
being in the backfield is definitely a big part of our offense,"
Tyrod Taylor said. "Him creating plays with us in the passing game
and the running game is definitely big for us. The type of player he is,
he's one of the best running backs in the league, definitely top five.
Having him back will definitely mean a lot and will definitely mean
explosive plays." He is the one guy the Pats have that takes
defensive attention off of Taylor
they have some guy named Gillislee starting. "I'm very confident in
the backs that we have back there," Tyrod Taylor said. "Mike
Gillislee, Jonathan [Williams] as well as Reggie [Bush]. All of those guys
have played well this season. When given the opportunity, they go out
there and they play. If we don't have Shady, I'm definitely confident in
the guys that we have back there to go out there and make plays."
Without Shady, I don't think they win the first game against the Pats,
when everything that could go wrong went wrong.
Pats will keep their composure. "I mean, we've always got to be able
to keep our composure out there," Slater said. "Football is a
game of high emotions, as we've discussed several times, but you've got to
be able to control those emotions. Ultimately the only thing that matters
is how you execute between the white [lines]. Last time they came out here
and out-executed us regardless of what went on before the game. They beat
us. So hopefully like I said, we can do enough to prevent that from
happening again." This will turn into a relatively easy cruise
through the 2nd half, where maybe we don't win by enough after what they
did in Week Four (100-points), but it is comfortable enough to never be in
We're On To Buffalo-
This is one of those game were everything is on the Pats side. "Yeah,
I don't think really anyone cares about the eye test," Sexy Rexy
said. "I mean, they're like fourth in the league in points allowed.
So that's the most important stat there is. They play great team defense.
They're very multiple in what they do, and you're not surprised by that
with a Bill Belichick team." The defense has looked ugly a lot this
year, but they just don't give up TDs.
Shady the Pats can put a ton more focus on containing Taylor in the
pocket. " We've got to get on the receivers," McCourty said.
"It's not just with the initial drop back. We're going to try to do a
good job containing him and still pressure him but the guy excels at it.
He excels at moving around the pocket, escaping. So we're going to go into
this game and say 'He doesn't make any plays with his legs moving around
and buying time.'
the secondary we understand that it's covering guys throughout the whole
play, understanding that once he starts moving around we've got to get on
guys. No matter if it's zone, man-to-man, eventually we have to match on a
guy once he starts moving around back there. We know he does that well and
we know the receivers know that. It's a little different but we saw that
last time we played them and we've had that challenge a couple times this
season with quarterbacks that have that ability and just trying to match
on guys and cover them up." If they can contain Taylor this game is a
Bills are missing their most impactful player on offense, and aren't
facing a rookie QB with a bum thumb. "I think he does a really good
job of playing to the strengths of his players," Brady said. "I
think that's what he does really well as a coach. I think there's an
element of what you prepare for, you may not get many of those things.
We've played him sometimes when he's been blitzing a lot, and he doesn't
blitz as much at all. Then he hasn't been blitzing much at all and then he
blitzes us at all.
think you just have to be prepared for everything, which is a bit of a
challenge because there's only so much time in the week that you have to
prepare. You've got to try to nail down what you think you're going to
get, then practice it and be able to adjust if need be when you get out
there. But I think [Rex Ryan] does a good job of getting his guys, the
guys he feel confident in the positions, that they need in order to make
the plays that they've been making, because they've been making a lot of
plays on defense." Brady has seen all his tricks and treats.
is just not scared of all the monster mashes the Bills defense can use to
scare a Rookie QB. "Yeah, I think the players do a good job
disguising their looks and giving you some different looks. I think they
do a very good job with those things. It all factors into good
defense," TB12 said. "[Sexy Rexy] has always had good defenses
when he's played us. He's had very good players. Like I said, they have a
good scheme, and that's what makes it challenging. Last time we played
them, we didn't score points [with a rookie with a bum thumb at QB, and a
90-yard TD taken away for a holding call]. We didn't play particularly
well. They played really well. We're going to need to play well in all
three phases, a real complementary game, because that's how they want to
want to control the tempo, they want to control the clock, they want to
possess the ball. They've been good at turning the ball over. I think
they're one of the top [leaders in] the league in turnover margin; very
good in the red area defense. So they're limiting points, keeping the
other offense off the field, they're running the ball great. They do a
good job and I think that's a great formula for winning in the league, so
we've got to figure out a way of how to stop that." Brady is not
going to get ah-scared of vandals on defense smashing pumpkins and rookie
and did I mention FrankenGronk. We have a Gronk. Who is coming Home to
play in Buffalo. "Definitely," Gronk said. "Whenever you're
going back to your hometown to play the game you love just growing up it's
an honor to go back and play in front of your friends, family, your
teachers that you grew up with that taught you. Definitely an honor and
it's always fun." He kills it in his Hometown.
is going to be looking to do some damage on Sunday. "Obviously that's
a crucial part about winning a football game," Gronk said. "You
want to make plays. You want to drive the football. You want to have big
chunk plays, not just five-yard runs, [or] five-yard passes every play.
You want some downfield plays to get the offense going, get the offense
rolling. When you get into the red zone it's huge. It's the difference of
four points from kicking a field goal or getting a touchdown which could
be a focal point in the game. So finishing drives off, getting chunk plays
in drives is always key." The Bills are just cooked this week, and
they deserve it.
The Trick or Treat Draft-
One of the reasons for the deplorable problems at QB for too many teams in
NFL is that they no longer develop QBs anymore. In order to save a roster
spot, teams are only keeping two QBs on the roster. NFL HC's have to win
now to keep their job. So keeping some young piece of QB candy that may or
may not develop into a sweet player four years down the road is about as
bottom a priority as there is in the NFL.
simple solution that won't benefit Garth Goodell, so it will never happen,
is to have a roster exemption that a team can use on a rookie QB, for the
entire length of his rookie contract. That gives every NFL team the
opportunity to groom a QB for a Halloween or two, three, or four without
ever taking up a roster spot, like Garoppolo (two seasons on the bench),
Taylor (who spent four years being groomed in Baltimore), or Kirk Cousins
(who was developed for three years in Washington). Unless he is needed to
give out candy to his WRs, like Jacoby was this year for two starts.
QB is the most mentally complicated position in all of professional
sports, by far. As college football teams go further and further in the
opposite direction: Spread offenses, Option offenses, and the intelligence
killing "Air Raid" offense, it is only getting worse. Like
smelling my feet, gets worse every year on Halloween.
I look at QBs like Mason Rudolph, Mitch Trubisky, or Shone Kizer (Falk,
Kaaya, and Mahomes need to stay in school), they all need three or four
years of intelligence development off the grid. They need to be put on the
QB Development List and exempted from the roster for the length of their
rookie contracts, or until they are smarter than whatever veteran Jabba
the QB that is currently losing their coaches job.
the Bears how happy they would be if they had taken a QB three or four
years ago and stashed on the QB Development List for the past three or
four seasons, like Green Bay did with Aaron Rogers, and developed him
mentally and physically into an NFL player.
Aaron Rogers! The best player in the NFL over the past three seasons has
easily been a healthy Brady. How easy is it to forget that he spent a year
on the QB Development List, and was kept off the grid for his whole
Padawan season. I'm sure that most Pats Fans don't know that he was the
4th-string QB on the 2000 Patriots. Not the 3rd! But the 4th-string QB.
John Friesz was Bledsoe's backup, and Michael "Treat or Treat"
Bishop was the 3rd string QB. Can you imagine an NFL team keeping four QBs
on the roster now?
NFL has a QBing crisis going on, and this years Draft is not going to
help. Deshaun Watson is the only 1st Round talent, and he did not take a
giant step forward after his great Playoff performances last year. Now
they are trying to piece together QBs like Frankenstein, from a group of
college kids who don't stand a chance in this NFL system. Some are now
piecing together Trubisky as a top ten pick. And Kiser, who desperately
needs to stay in school, is being wrapped up as a 1st Round pick, like a
I'm an NFL coach staking what is maybe my one chance at being an NFL coach
on those two kids, I'm as terrified watching their film as I'd be watching
Dracula rising out of a coffin, live. But, if I could stick Mason Rudolph,
Mitch Trubisky, or Shone Kizer on the QB Development List for a minimum of
two years without consequence to the roster, I would take a stab with that
stake at trick or treating for one of those guys in the 2nd, and feel
tasty Draft treat for Pats fans:
*Jamal Adams- FS, 1st-
Nice job jamming the bigger WR trying to block him, and then running
around him like he wasn't there. Doesn't always take good angles. He
can come up fast on the WR on the screen, and take him down after a
yard. He helped shut down Engram. He knocked a pass down on the goal
line that was meant for Engram. He dived over his shoulder on the
Out, and slapped the ball down. He blocks on punt returns, and is a
great blocker. He wiped out two cover guys on a great block against
Tre'Davious White- CB 5-11, 190, 2nd-
He will come off the slot WR and lined up like a Will. Then charge
into the backfield like a SS and get to the RB on a Toss. He can
play some safety. He is so aggressive getting into the backfield and
getting to the ball carrier. Very nice job covering the tight end
out of the slot. He is an excellent returner. He also has a 24-yard
return in the 4th.
Kendell Beckwith- ILB, 6-2, 252 3rd-
He can get outside and get to the RB on the screen pass and tackle
him behind the line of scrimmage as he catches the ball. Did a nice
job in coverage on Engram when they asked him. Such nice speed to
the outside. He sees to get to the RB on toss outside, behind the
LOS, consistently. He has the size and smarts, so it is all about
NFL speed for him.
*Davon Godchaux- DT/5-T, 6-4, 293, 2nd-
Ole Miss started doubling him early. Nice power moving outside,
while dragging the OLT with him down the line. He will come off the
snap a tick late sometimes, but can still push the ORG back almost
into the QB. Nice job stacking and shedding the ORG, and going and
getting the RB. He showed some speed, getting from 5-Tech, through
the OLT, and into the flat to destroy the quick scatback. He can
turn and get the QB scrambling up field and take him down from
behind. He had the great pressure and hit on Kelly that helped cause
the INT at the end of the 3rd.
Arden Key- EDGE 6-2, 264, Soph-
He is so good that I have to concentrate on not watching him,
because he is not eligible. Elite passrusher. He might be the best
edgerusher in the FBS right now. I'm not sure, with Garrett and
Smoot on the field. But I do know he is the most likely going to be
the best edgerusher next year, and in the 2018 Draft.
*Leonard Fournette- RB 6-1, 230-
He ran a Dive from the shadows of the endzone. Everyone knew it was
coming, and he burst straight up the middle at full speed for 25. He
also had a 78-yard TD run in the 3rd. He didn't have a free run this
time. He used his elite strength to straight arm the Safety to the
ground and ran the final 59-yards untouched. That’s a 59, 76, and
then 78-yard TD runs against Miss. He's the best I've seen since
Peterson. Then he lined up at FB again, and caught the ball curling
out to the flat.
Travin Dural- WR, 6-2, 203, 3rd-
Nice job changing speeds in patterns. He break off the route so
quick on Digs that he can leave DBs in the dust. Always seems to
reach and snag the ball with his hands. He knows how to get open
over the middle on the 2nd and 3rd levels. Runs a nice deep in. And
again, he always gets those hands up and catch it away from his
Ethan Pocic OL 6-7, 309 2nd-
He can shotgun snap and pull outside. Not a lot of speed to the
outside. He always seems to struggle, just a little, when I watch
him. He does do a great job double the NT in pass pro. He clamps on
and helps hold the NT in place. Nice job getting into the NT, and
sealing him inside on the outside run. He seems to play better as
the game wears on. He started to have some suddenness in his
shoulders on an outside zone block.
Malachi Dupre- WR 6'3" 190 JR*-
Where in the world is Malachi Dupre? I saw him trying to make a
block in the 2nd Quarter. He dived onto the ground to grab a pass
that was knocked down in front of him.
Chad Kelly- QB 6-2, 224, URFA-
When he is in rhythm he can throw as quick as anyone. Catch the
snap, one step, and throw. But when the pressure came he threw a
terrible under thrown INT. Threw a second terrible pass right into
the two safeties against LSU, it would have been intercepted, but
the two Safeties knocked each other down trying to catch it. He got
hit on that play, then completed the next two pass. They tied the
game at Halftime, with a giant defensive play against LSU, and by
running the ball. Then he couldn't lead the offense to a point in
the 3rd as LSU went up 10. He threw another INT to end the 3rd. He
is just not an NFL QB. They had to run him out of the backfield
because they could no longer trust him to throw. He couldn't lead
Miss to a 2nd Half point. I'm done.
guy is not an NFL QB. He is simply too mentally erratic to be an NFL
QB. The only QB I can compare him too is Manziel. And while Manziel
is addicted to drugs (and yes alcohol is a drug) Kelly is addicted
to stupid. Imagine, getting himself involved in another off field
random act of stupidity, (at a high school game!) in the year he is
trying to smarten up enough to play in the NFL. If he wasn't such a
self-centred jerk it would be a tragedy. An NFL team simply cannot
have its QB getting in fistfights on college or high school football
fields. He falters late in games, and always seems at his best in
the 1st quarter. Then teams adjust and he falls apart.
Evan Engram- TE 6-3, 227 SR 2nd-
Nice job getting out to the flat and chopping the Safety coming
downhill on the toss. The SEC leading receiver. I told everyone he
was a 1st Round pick, and you all mocked me (get it mocked me). In
the first 7 games, he has garnered 40 catches for 605 yards. Which
could put him on pace for 80 catches and 1,200 yards. He had a huge
drop on 3rd and goal in the 2nd against LSU. Engram can catch the
short pass, and break the tackle of the DE to get a few more yards.
Then LSU started tripling him. They took him out of the game.
*Damore'ea Stringfellow- WR, RS-Jr, 6-2, 211, 3rd-
Terrific job using his long arms to reach up and away from his body
to snag the ball with his great hands. Knows how to use his body to
draw the foul. Great quick hands to reach up for the fast ball high
and outside, behind two DBs, and snag it and pull it in, on the
Slant. Very nice hands catcher.
Quincy Adeboyejo- WR, 6-3, 195, 5th-
Great blocker on the edge. He can leap up over the CB and catch the
ball off the CB's helmet. He is a body catcher.
*Marquis Haynes- OLB, Jr, 6-2, 222, 1st-
He is getting better and better against the run. He can defeat the
TE block at the point, and then hop around the FB and tackle the RB.
He is so explosive to the QB, but he can't be a true NFL edgerusher
at that weight. It is amazing how he can shift, and push the tight
end aside, and take down a big RB like Fournette at the point. He
plays much stronger than his weight.
he reminds me of Van Noy, who the Pats just traded for. Nay Noy has
struggled ever since he started pumping himself up over 225. Haynes
has to prove he can play over 225 and still be as stunningly
explosive and cat-quick.
Tony Bridges- CB, 6', 185, 6th-
He gets into the backfield fast on run defense.
Tony Conner- S 6', 225, SR 4th-
He will lined up right on the end of the line and blitz the
QB with some nice speed. When the QB tries to throw in the flat
behind him, he can lift off and knock the pass down. He has
transitioned from CB to SS because of injury, and he has become a
great college safety.
D.J. Jones- DT, Sr, 6', 321 4th-
Short and explosive NT. He is a one burst guy. When he reads it
right off the snap, and burst into the play, he can look great. But
when he reads it wrong he can get stuck on blocks, and have trouble
changing direction. The reason he has a chance in the NFL is that he
is a super weight room freak, who can squat a ton. He can jam the
ORG back right off the snap with his leg drive, to get a little
space, then use his hands and burst past his outside shoulder, and
burst to the QB. Nice quick second burst and hands.
He will get kicked back as he reads the play, but he is young and
that will speed up. Then he can swim over the OG and get in front of
the RB on a toss outside.
is another treat, the only way to watch the Georgia @ FLA game:
*Jalen Tabor CB 6' 191-.
*Quincy Wilson- CB 6-1, 199 Jr-
Jared Davis-LB 6-1, 236, 2nd-
Marcus Maye- FS 6', 209 2nd-
Celib Brantley- DT 6-2, 200, 2nd-
Bryan Cox- EDGE 6-3. 268, 2nd-
Ales Anzalone- DT 6-3, 241-
Joey Ivie- DT 6-3, 295-
Taven Bryan- SO, DT, 6-5, 293-
He reminds me of Garcia. He can be a backup QB in the NFL. Smooth
feet running and throwing against the grain. He has been in college
for 6 spring practices (1 as a high schooler), and it really shows.
Nice job with trickeration. Throws accurately, off balance, and
under pressure to RB swinging out to the other side. He throws a
nice soft deep ball down the sideline.
*Cameron Dillard- OL 6-4, 308, RS-Jr-
*David Sharpe- OL 6-6, 347 RS-Jr-
*DeAndre Goolsby- TE, 6-4, 244-
*Cameron Dillard- OL 6'4" 308, RS Jr-
Big OC. He can hit the NT, and turn him and seal him with
some power. Everything starts with the OC, and he looks like a guy
who could make a team very happy in the 2nd round. He can stick a
hand in the chest of the DT slant to the right, and hit the blitzer
filling his whole, and then grab the big DT and wash him out of the
play. Excellent hands, feet, and balance in pass pro.
*Jalen Tabor- CB 6' 191-
He really shied away from the rough stuff in 2015. But he has been
in on, or trying to get in, on tackles all over the field. He is
really playing mad in 2016. When he plays off, he will watch the QB.
And when he throws over the middle, he can get from the sideline to
seam to knock the TE down before he can secure the ball. Excellent
display of eyes, smarts, and toughness, Because the big TE flipped
him over when he hit him, but he knocked the ball out.
*Quincy Wilson- CB 6-1, 199-
Excellent quick feet in press. He likes to hop a little side to side
to slow release. Like to charge the WR when he lines up way off in
Off. They like to challenge the short routes, and disguise that by
lining up way off, and bursting to the line Sounds nuts, but he
makes it work.
Jared Davis-LB 6-1, 236, 2nd- Great hitter. He has top
character. He can chase down the RB on the edge. Nice delay blitzer.
When he sees the RB has stayed in to block, he can cut around his DL
and go and get the QB. He goes low and is an excellent wrap up
tackler. Doesn't always take on blocks well. Ore speed and burst
Marcus Maye- FS 6', 209 2nd-
He can get outside the numbers and meet the RB at the line, and take
him down. Very nice speed outside. He comes up fast when the QB
takes off. I live the way this guy moves on the field. He is fast
Celib Brantley- DT 6-2, 200, 2nd-
He had 6.5 sack, 10.5 TFL, and 29 tackles in 2015. Nice burst inside
on the ORG, and can turn to the left and hit the RB on the other
side of the OC. Nice swim move inside. He is the guy that the O-line
doubles to open things up for his teammates.
Bryan Cox- EDGE 6’3” 268 rSR, 2nd-
He had a sack against Tennessee to start the game.
Ales Anzalone- DT 6-3, 241-
Great speed blitzing off the outside edge. But will get knocked past
QB by RB a little too easily. He gets in on a lot of plays. Great
blitzer straight up the gut. He can really move in a straight line.
Marcus Maye- FS 6', 209 2nd-
stepped up at SS. He has turned into a legit run defender.

Nice toughness on the edge. He can hold up the RB, and then rip the
ball out. He finds the QB outside when he takes off.
Must Win Game-
Not only are the Pats looking forward to the sweet taste of revenge, but
they are down in the Division to Buffalo. "Division games are huge,
especially division games on the road, [are] an even bigger game. They're
crucial," Gronk said. "They're in your division. You always want
to go out and play your division tough. The Bills, they're always ready,
they're always prepared every single time we play them. It's a four
quarter game every single time. It always goes down to the last few
minutes or the last play every single time we play them. Definitely one of
the biggest games of the year so far going on the road versus a division
team. The atmosphere is going to be loud and they already beat us too
here. So it's going to be a big game." Nothing is adding up for
Buffalo in this game.
hard to say this is the biggest game of the season, because of: Garth
Goodell's' exile of TB12 on Tatooine for four games, starting a rookie for
two games, and we all forget how scary that first game in Arizona was when
Garoppolo was still the Phantom Menace we knew nothing about at QB.
the Pats can't afford to go down 2-zip to a Divisional opponent.
know the Bills season is in the middle of being blown up by the schedule.
They have to play the Pats sandwiched between three road games against
three winning teams (yes I know Miami is not a winning team, but they beat
the Bills at Home last week).
Bills season is about to be over, and they know it. "Yeah I mean the
only thing you're paying attention to is what's right in front of you, New
England, so whatever's past that, I haven't even looked at," Rexy
B-Ss. "So we know when our bye week is because you give the players
and coaches some time off but other than that, you don't know anything. So
like I don't. You know, you brought it up, and I promise you, I haven't
even thought about it one bit and everything we're pouring into this game.
That's it." They have to go on the road to Seattle and then Cincinati
the next two weeks.
they are staring at four straight loses right in the face. "I
definitely think that we've felt we're stronger than last year,"
Taylor said. "We have some things that we can clean up. The 0-2 start
definitely wasn't the way that what we wanted to start. To win four in a
row was definitely a big plus as far as confidence goes in the locker
room, but it's keeping everybody together as well. Losing the game last
week, definitely tough on the road, but we got past that mentally and
we're ready to attack the challenge that we have this week. It's a big
challenge and we're looking forward to it." But you still don't want
get down 2-Zip to any Division rival.
goods news is that Brady is back and he's looking for some trouble.
"He's too good," Rexy said. "If he could just sit back and
without challenging him, you know, it's tough enough when you present
something he hadn't seen, but it's damn near impossible when he hadn't
seen it. " The Bills are in big trouble, and I for one will enjoy
watching their season unravel the next few weeks.
