The 2019

Patriots Season. 


7 Things For Sunday: Part II.

Pats Vs Titans:

The Last Thing We Need Is Another Ryan Part I.


Ryan Tannehill is not a rookie QB who is going to fold under pressure. And while the Pats D destroyed the too young QBs in the first half of the season, veterans QBs like Ryan Fitzpatrick kicked their asses. Rookie QBs were sent home crying. Young veterans were turned into the not ready for primetime players. But veteran QBs who had a ton of experiences against Cover Zero gave them a spanking, like some has-been named Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

This weeks' Ryan was named AFC Offensive player of the month for December. "I’m not a QB guru. He’s playing really good football, he’s doing a good job: draw back, 3rd down, finding an open guy. He’s doing a great job in the play-action," McCourty said. "And then I think he does a really good job [moving in the pocket]. He never looks like he really wants to run, but the dude is fast so when he does run. He’s able to make big plays like you see on some of those boots. They run a boot and no one’s contained and so he just acts like he’s going to throw it and there’s like no one in front of him for 20 yards, so he just runs." He causes a lot of problems with his feet. 

But his improvement has really been mental, with his eyes seeing it faster and his arm getting the ball into the right spot. "I think he’s doing a really good job of just running the offense, finding these guys when they’re open, doing a really good job of understanding [his reads]. It looks like he knows what defenses are in, and he’s just getting the ball to the open guy," McCourty said. "He’s always had a very, very good arm throwing the ball down the field, pretty accurate at throwing throws, deep balls, intermediate routes. We’ve seen him for years, we’ve been a part of some of his best games in Miami, so we know what he’s capable of and we’ve watched how he’s leading that team." Only three QBs have completed 70% of their passes and averaged 9-yards per attempt

The scary part is that he is a veteran journeyman who failed, but kept getting better each season behind the scenes where he finally put it all together mentally, like last weeks' Ryan. Ouch, that still hurts. He is 6-1 as a starter in Tennessee this season. He is a one year wonder, and has only had about 250 snaps this season. But the Pats can't underestimate him like they underestimated Fitzpatrick. 

The last thing the Pats need is another QB named Ryan marching into Foxboro to kick their unprepared asses. They better be ready to see a QB who can read a D and throw like Ryan did last week. Gilmore needs to be a shutdown CB this week. The vaunted D-line and LBs need to successfully hit the damn QB this week. 

I don't remember a Ryan hitting the ground once last week. "As we talked about on the conference call yesterday, Tennessee’s obviously a really good football team, doing a lot of things well. Very explosive offensively. Probably as explosive as anybody we’ve seen in a while (or since last week), BB said. "Sound on defense, as you would expect with Mike [Vrabel] and Dean [Pees] and the good players they have there. So, it’ll be a big challenge for us here. It’s a great opportunity here to advance. This is what we work for all year, so I think we’re ready to go." Patriots Defense better be more ready to go than they were against the last Ryan we faced, and knock this Ryan onto the turf repeatedly. 

Tannehill did a pretty good Fitzpatrick imitation in the second half of the season. "We’ll be ready to go. We’re not ready yet, but we’ll be ready to go," BB said. "I think our team has a good attitude this morning, and we’ll have a good week of practice and be ready to let it go Saturday night. But, these guys are tough. They’re really a well-balanced team. They’ve had a lot of success in the last two-thirds of the season. You can see why." This game is all on the Pats-D. 

The good news is that the Patriots players appear to be ready to climb this Mount Olympus like challenge in the Playoffs. "We came to work Monday. We have guys in that locker room who have never had the experience playing that last game on Sunday and your season will be over and we have guys who have," McCourty said. "Those guys always give great perspective of what it means to play in the playoffs, of that last game and already knowing where you’re going on vacation. We had guys talk about that, and I think the realization was after how bad Sunday was, we came in the next day and we had to work. We had stuff that we wanted to accomplish and we got the opportunity to do it." The Titans pose a lot of problems that have really hurt the Pats D this season. 

They have a great run game that takes pressure off their no longer has-been QB. "So because of how we played in the regular season, we get a chance to play in the postseason," McCourty said. "It didn’t end the way we wanted it to. But I think it would really be bad to let one loss disappoint the whole rest of the season because we stayed and stuck on that. We’ve got a veteran group. We’ve got guys that understand that, and we’re excited about this opportunity. We’re going to work our butts off to be able to be prepared and go out there and play a tough game Saturday night." Do or die time baby. 

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:


As President Stupid just committed an act of War on Iran sovereign soil against one of the cunning and powerful foe in the Middle East, just as Nostradamus predicted, he is pretending their are no consequences. It must be nice to be so rich that you can live a life without consequences., 

But the consequences of having the stupidest President in US History is about to come raining down in us. And even scarier is that President Stupid's only strategy is that he has a tiny penis, and his strategy is to prove to everyone else that it is, as President little dick would say, 

a HUGE deal. 

Assassinating the Number Two guy in any Country is wrong, 

and unconstitutional without permission from Congress. 

This was a step too far, again.

The Report’ Director Scott Z. Burns Responds To Mike Pompeo: “I Am Interested In Knowing What Part He Finds To Be Fiction

Director Scott Z. Burns is challenging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to explain what parts of The Report are “fiction,” after Pompeo slammed the film on Twitter.

The Amazon Studios drama centers on the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation or torture.

On Friday Pompeo tweeted: “I watched The Report. Fiction. To be clear: the bad guys are not our intelligence warriors. The bad guys are the terrorists. To my former colleagues and all of the patriots at @CIA who have kept us safe since 9/11: America supports you, defends you and has your back. So do I.”

Burns took issue with the way Pompeo defended the CIA’s work as patriotic, and called the secretary of state’s comments “misguided.”

The movie chronicles the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence investigation that led to the 2014 release of a report on the CIA’s use of torture in the war on terror. It follows Daniel Jones (Adam Driver), who was lead investigator for the committee, then chaired by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), played by Annette Bening.


'The Report': Read Scott Z Burns' Screenplay For Amazon's 

Real-Life Drama

In his statement, Burns said, “I am grateful to Secretary of State Pompeo for taking the time to watch The Report movie on Amazon Prime. I hope he will go back and read the [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence] report as well.  I am interested in knowing what part he finds to be fiction and I ask him to join me in calling for the release of the Panetta Review which the CIA conducted into the [enhanced interrogation technique] program so that this dispute can be resolved. I agree with him that terrorists are bad guys— as are the people who conducted barbaric and ineffective acts of torture in the name of Mr. Pompeo’s misguided notion of ‘Patriotism’ and then misled Congress and the American people.”

The Panetta review is an internal report that was led by then-CIA director Leon Panetta of the use of torture during the administration of President George W. Bush.

The controversy over The Report has echoes to that over Zero Dark Thirty in 2012.

Back then, Feinstein, the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) were vocal in their criticisms of the movie because they believed it gave the impression that the CIA’s use of torture was beneficial in finding Osama Bin Laden.

As the movie was being released, the senators fired off a letter to then Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, calling the film “inaccurate.” Their concern was that the movie was “misleading in its suggestion that torture resulted in information that led to the location of Osama bin Laden.” They cited the Intelligence Committee investigation into the use of torture. 

Director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal defended the film and said in a statement at the time that it “shows that no single method was necessarily responsible for solving the manhunt, nor can any single scene taken in isolation fairly capture the totality of efforts the film dramatizes.”

Michael Morell, who was acting CIA director at the time, also weighed in, but was more measured in his response.

He called the movie a “dramatization, not a realistic portrayal of the facts.” He refuted the idea that enhanced interrogation was the “key to finding Bin Laden,” but also did not entirely dismiss whether torture yielded information. He said in a statement that “enhanced interrogation techniques were the only timely and effective way to obtain information from those detainees, as the film suggests, is a matter of debate that cannot and never will be definitively resolved.”
