been a week of paranoia for me. I keep looking at how the Buffalo Bills can win
this game. Even with over-confidences and lack of respect for the Bills, I
just don't see how. The only thing I can point to is... well...
overconfidence and lack of respect for the Bills. But I guarantee you the
Pats players remember last year's ugly game in Buffalo.
know McDermott has some voodoo on the Pats in Buffalo. "It's definitely tough. The fans are into it. They’re tailgating so when you pull up to the stadium they're yelling at the bus, all things of that
nature," White said. "It's NFL football. It's exciting,. It's everything you can ask for. It'll be a great challenge for us though to see what we're made of, another road game, another challenge. We've got to go out there and execute for four quarters."
The Bills also don't have a rookie QB.
someone scores a touchdown on the Pats defense it is impossible to conceive of
how they lose. "Practice. It all comes down to what we do in practice each week of preparing and getting ready to go. And, with all due respect, we don’t care what anybody writes or says about us because we know as good as it can be, I bet if we pull up some clippings from last year, you guys were probably saying some of the worst things about our
defense," Devin McCourty said. "So it all comes and goes, and I think the biggest thing is kind of playing for each other and then preparing each week. From Wednesday throughout,
and really starting Tuesday, starting watching the film on our own. But coming in here on the practice field Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and then tying everything together Saturday, I think it’s what’s given us confidence the first three weeks."
Now it will happen. The NFL season is a season of attrition.
offense will get hot. A defender or three will make a mistake. The
coaches will make mistakes. There will be injuries, bumps and bruises, and
even ego driven mistakes. The Patriots defense was constructed of humans by
humans for the humans. So they are not perfect. But they have been perfect so far.
just don't see how this is the week. This should be the week when the
offense is the most vulnerable. Which is not good going into a crazy environment
on the road against a very good defense. They have the Edelman concerns. They
have the Josh Gordon finger concerns. And those two guys have to be great in
this game. They desperately need them to get open quick to help protect
O-line is still a puzzle that is not quite completely put together yet.
"It's a great challenge. Every time we play these guys they give us a great game. They're a physical
defense," White said. "They're smart guys. They disguise well. They're good at the defensive line, linebackers, at the safety position, corners. They have everything they need. They play sound football, smart football. It's going to be a great challenge for us, a tough environment. We've got to see what we're made of."
We don't even know if they have a tight end or a fullback on this team
Izzo did play some FB at FLA ST. "It's tough, man. He's a great teammate, great football player and a great
person," White said about Develin. "You hate to see a guy like that go down. He's a focal point of our offense. Not many teams use a fullback but he's a guy who changed the game for us, so it's tough to see him go down."
But Izzo outgrew the position, and is it hard to be a blocking back at
Edelman is playing. "Jules is crazy, though. He’s one of the toughest guys I’ve ever played
with. So you never count him out. I mean, he was saying that Sunday. He was saying he’s going to get as good as he can and do whatever he has to
do. So I’m not surprised by anything he does," Devin McCourty said.
"Since I’ve gotten here in 2010, he’s always been a tough guy. Even the years he’s been on I.R. and you knew he wasn’t coming back, if you see him in the locker room or working out, you would swear he was coming back for the playoffs or something. So, he’s always been a tough guy."
So I think I'm saying it's okay to relax a little.
holes in the offense the Bills defense can take advantage of. But... you
know... Brady is Brady. Maybe he stinks for three quarters and scores more
points in the 4th than in the first three quarters combined. When the only
real concern in this game is that Brady might be the weak link? Than I
think it might be time to relax a little.
