biggest worry is the big RB Derrick Henry. "We’ve got to find a way to bring him down, but I always say you get in trouble when you’re supposed to play middle of the field and you’re worried about tackling Derrick Henry for 5
yards," McCourty said. "Like, if that’s happening, it’s going to look great on one play. Everyone’s going to get up.
You made a tackle for 5 yards or 3 yards. But, the very next play is going to be a play-action. They’re going to throw the ball over your head."
When Henry is killing it, the Offense becomes two dimensional with the Play
when Tannehill is the most effective. "So, I think when you play teams where they have the leading rusher, and they have a quarterback with the highest passer rating, and they have A.J. Brown, Corey Davis,
Sharpe?" McCourty said. "They’ve got a lot of guys, Jonnu Smith
(as well) making big plays. You’ve got to count on each other. We’ve got to trust each other out there on the field that if it’s a run play the guys up-front that are in position to play the run are going to play it, and then if it’s play-action they’ve got to trust that the guys in the back-end are going to be ready to play the pass. And we’ve got to do that for 60 minutes."
Henry was great this season.
the real worry is that in the last six games of the Season he was HOF
great. He led the NFL in rushing. This has to concern the Patriots
Defense. However, in the last six games he rushed for almost 900-yards
(896), and in the last seven games he almost eclipsed a 1,000.
Titans like to put three tight ends in the game, like Baltimore did to
them. "I think you have so many matchup issues when you go 13, and you have tight ends that are versatile that you have to be able to match them and play to however they’re using them, and you really won’t know that until the game gets
going," McCourty said. "You don’t know 13, especially for this team,
you run 13 and you still have Henry in the backfield. You can go 13, three tight ends,
and kind of run smash-mouth football and run the ball.
"But, you could also go 13, and spread it out and it’s 11. And now you’re throwing the ball downfield, you’re going hard play-action. So, they have a lot of variables, I would say, out of 13, and 12, and really 21 for that matter, too."
That is also when you see Jonnu Smith's versatility in the passing
have a big advantage in the cold rain on a New England night. However, a
lot of that will be lost if Henry pounds the defense to death, and then
they can play action, especially when they go 13, and beat the defense
deep over the top. The Patriots Defense has to get to Henry early before
he can get that motor running.

to receive special briefings and notifications, which are shared

put another way, we’re apparently moving away from the Gang of
Eight reporting process and toward a process in which the president
notifies an allied senator about national security decisions while
sharing a tee time.
this sounds at all familiar, Trump also kept the Gang of Eight in
the dark on the mission targeting Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder
and leader of ISIS, a few months ago. The presidentdid
alert Lindsey Graham– who is not a member
of the Gang of Eight and whose Senate responsibilities do not
require notifications like these.
isn’t how any of this is supposed to work in this country, though
clearly Trump doesn’t care. What’s less clear is what might
happen in the future – because the funny thing about norms,
institutions, and respect for the rule of law is that once they’re
broken, they’re awfully tough to piece back together.

as I wish that they could be" following the U.S. strike in Iraq on
Thursday that killed Iran's top military commander, Gen. Qassem
Brits, the French, the Germans all need to understand that what we did,
what the Americans did, saved lives in Europe as well," he added.
The top U.S. diplomat reiterated in the interview his assertion from earlier Friday that Soleimani, a powerful Iranian military figure and leader of the country's elite Quds Force, was planning an "imminent" attack before he was killed.
"There was an attack that was imminent that could have killed dozens or hundreds of Americans," he said, referencing Trump's remarks on the topic earlier in the day.
Pompeo said Soleimani was laying the groundwork for "what they were referring to as the 'big attack,'" saying it was "aiming to take down significant amounts of Americans" and would have "undoubtedly killed locals too."
"This was a good thing for the entire world, and we're urging everyone in the world to get behind what the United States is trying to do, to get the Islamic Republic of Iran to simply behave like a normal nation," Pompeo said.
A number of other global leaders voiced concern this week following the U.S. strike that killed Soleimani and others as their convoy left Baghdad International Airport.
“Peace in the Middle East and the Gulf region should be preserved,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. “We urge all parties concerned, especially the United States, to maintain calm and restraint and avoid further escalation of tensions.”
In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry said “such actions don’t help resolve complicated problems in the Middle East, but instead lead to a new round of escalating tensions.”
German government spokeswoman Ulrike Demme described the strike as "a reaction to a whole series of military provocations for which Iran bears responsibility" but urged caution moving forward.
“We are at a dangerous escalation point and what matters now is contributing with prudence and restraint to de-escalation,” she added.
Europeans are not going to help, because anyone with any commonsense
knows that Trump and Pompeo are lyin' sacks of shit. Trump already
explained how he/O'Bama was going to lie his way into War, to distract
the American People from his lies, crimes, and impeachment. Which is
exactly what Trump is doing right now.
