Yes, Brady is back!!!
The world is perfect again. What a game by Brady, and he looked like he was still in his twenties. Its good to not have to think about who will play quarterback this season knowing that the greatest of all time. This game looked like it was all going to be about Tom Brady but the two tight end are something else. All I can say is that Bennett and Gonk are going to cause some problems in this league.
Let me start off by saying that I didn’t watch the last 5 minutes of the fourth quarter of Sundays game. It was too painful to watch. I was hoping for a closer game but I couldn’t bare watching a shutdown of the patriots at the Gillette stadium.
The performance of the team was totally unbearable to watch. Early on it was clear that the Bills had the edge in this game but a shutdown was not on my mind. from the beginning of the season most of us were not expecting the go 3 -0 by week three and a loss wasn’t unexpected knowing that we didn’t have Tom Brady due to the suspension.
It is not that we lost a game to the Bills at home but it was the manner in which we lost that was really disappointing. Like Bill Belichick said everything was bad. the The defense the offense and the coaching was all bad. We are 3 -1 and will have Brady back to face the Browns most of our troubles should be behind us but this type of loss shouldn’t happen again if the Patriots are thinking of making it to the Superbowl.
This is the first time the patriots have lost by a shutdown since 1993 and the first shutdown loss for the patriots under Bill Belichick at home.
Another week another weekly recap. I am a little late on this post so I will get to the point. I have listed a few interesting things I found during this week.
Funniest video I saw this week was from KingBach. I still laugh when I watch this funny version of “Damn Daniel”
This Remix of Mr. FijiWijis’s Yours Trueley is just gold. Still play it on repeat!!!
This week was an amazing one for Patriot fans. Even though we were underdogs we still won. We lost Tom Brady to a suspension, Jimmy Garoppolo to an injury so we were using our rookie third string quarterback Jacoby Brisett and we had a shutdown score over the Texans. It was an amazing game.
End of recap , have a lovely day.
I don’t know much about Jacoby just like most of you out there. Everyone is caught up in the Tom Bradys, Big Ben and Jameis Winston. But today in the game against the Dolphins Jimmy Garoppolo got injured when he was tackled by Kiko Alonso and the new name had to step up and take the position of the quarterback.
Here is a little history about Jacoby from Wikipedia.
Jacoby Brissett (born December 11, 1992) is an American footballquarterback for the New England Patriots of theNational Football League (NFL). He played college football at Florida and NC State. He was drafted in the third round with the 91st overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Well in his first professional game against the Dolphins he had a pretty bad showing. The offence went from adventurous and exciting to timid and conservative. Jacoby didn’t look confident when he threw the ball. He was quite slow in handing the ball over to the running backs when they had to run the ball. It wasn’t a really good fist game for Jacoby. We understand that he is rookie but we need to winning is really important. It seemed like he really didn’t have any strengths but he showed a lot of athleticism and that will be the key to using Jacoby.
Pay attention to how quick he is when he runs with the ball. I think if New England is going to make the most of Jacoby then they need to play to his strengths and give him the chance to run with the ball. Rushing the ball will be the winning strategy if we can get the O-line to create those kind of opportunities for him. Short passing and rushing the ball will be the best way to ensure that Jacoby manages the game well without any turn overs. He has a strong arm too so he will be good for those long deep balls with single coverage to the receiver. James White and LeGarrette Blount will have to take up a lot of responsibility when Jacoby is on the field but I am sure he has assets that can be used to our advantage. To be fair to Jacoby he got better as the game against the Dolphins went on and seemed to grow in confidence but he still has a long way to go before being able to pass like Jimmy or Tom Brady. At the moment I can say that his running game is good and we should let him run when he has the opportunity.
What an exciting game it was. Not better than out game against the Cardinals but it was a good one. The Patriots started really strong with Jimmy G in the first quarter and it looked like the scores were going to be embarrassing for Miami but then Jimmy G got hurt by Kiko Alonso. From then on Miami got into a rhythm of getting into the Red Zone and making touchdowns. They nearly had their way in the fourth quarter when Stephen Gostkowski missed a field goal, But luckily we had an interception in the final seconds.
It was a close game but it was obvious that the team was feeling down after loosing Jimmy G to an injury. For me that was a really sad moment in the game and the reaction of players makes it seem that he might be out for the next two games. We play the Texans next and with the current quarterback situation in New England, the Texans will fancy taking a win when they come to Fox Burrow. I just hope Jimmy G’s injury is not as serious as it looks and the team can get through the next two games till Tom Brady comes back.
The Quarterback Situation
Jacoby Brisett stepped in as quarterback after Jimmy G got injured and the difference was like day and night. It was obvious from the start that the team didn’t think he was ready to be put into the spotlight. His passes were not accurate, his hand over was slow. He took longer to throw the ball and didn’t look too confident. The offence was really weak with Jacoby. If Jacoby is supposed to be the quarterback against the texans then the offence coach has a lot of work to do in getting him ready. Our running game is not that strong although Blaunt showed in the second half of the game that he was ready to work extra hard in getting more yards per carry. We definitely need a strong passing game to win against the texans who seems to be coming into form with Brock Osweiler. If Jacoby is not ready then Julian Edelman will have to step in. He used to play quarterback before joining the patriots and is capable and confident enough to get he job done.
I think Bill Belichick will find a solution before Thursday night and will definitely find a strategy to get another win.
