6. No Time For AB-
The Patriots Achilles heel before Saturday night was the WR position.
“He's different than Brown,” BB said about Juju. “They move all of
the receivers around. So they did it before Brown. They did it with Brown.
And now they're doing it after Brown. They just move them around.” But
the Pats couldn’t sign Brown before the deadline.
So, he cannot play in this Game. “I’m more
than just a football player man. I’m a real person,” Brown said. “It
ain’t about the football. I know I can do that. I show you guys that on
the daily. This is my life. Ain’t no more games.” So, the Pats will
still be shorthanded at WR tonight.
The WR position was the fatal flaw on the
Patriots that looked like could derail the season. You cannot tell me that
Gordon and/or Thomas are going to survive the season. Harry has had
trouble staying healthy and is still learning the system. They wanted to
rush him back as soon as possible, now they don’t have to. Dorsett seems
to have forgotten how to use his speed. He was picked in the 1st, because
he had 4.3 speed. But now, he plays like he has 5.3 speed. And of course,
Edelman was unable to give his thumps up all preseason.
The good news is that Edelman is healthy and
ready to start. “We did have a good amount of practice reps and you also
take mental reps,” Edelman said. “Nothing comes easy. Any time you go
out there and you have to perform, you definitely have to had prepared
well and I think that’s what we’re trying to do.” His little thumb
is good enough to go.
They will also be relying on Demaryius Thomas
who looked too old last season, and looked like he had a broken wing in
the Preseason. “I think it’s awesome having a guy like Demaryius in
there. He’s a veteran-type guy. He’s made a lot of big plays in this
league. He’s had a lot of production in this league. He’s played in a
lot of big games in this league,” Edelman said. “Any time you have
someone like that in your room, it’s awesome. Especially for the younger
guys, they get to see how he prepares and how a professional is supposed
to look. Having Josh back is unbelievable. It’s great. He’s a really
good football player.” They will need a few catches out of him tonight
to say the least.
They don’t have Gronk to bail out the WRs
this season, or in this game. They are on their own. The Pats have to
score some points in the passing game. The run game will give them a great
advantage against the Steelers' defense. Play action is likely to win this
game. I don’t see the Steelers stopping the run game, without giving up
too much to Brady. Even though Brady is throwing to his misfit band of
So that’s why the offense will succeed. We
got Brady throwing, and when worst comes to worse he can still throw to James
White. Even Damien Harris can catch and hurt some DBs outside. They will
score just enough to help the Pats’ Defense win this game. Short
passing, running the ball, and defense wins this game.
7. Pats Win-
The reason the Pats win is because of defense. They have been playing,
flirting, and hiding the defense all preseason. But haven’t really put
all the starters in and unleashed them. Yet they have dominated. Shelton
has been great this Preseason. They also barely played Bennett. They can
rush the passer from every angle. They can cover with any D in the League
The Odd front will help them in this game with
Hightower, Van Noy, and Jamie Collins blitzing from every angle. They will
also move Bennett around to attack Roethlisberger. With all the veterans
on the field, the Pats Defense is going to cause a lot of trouble for the
Steelers. They will attack, cover, and fight with any offense in the NFL
While the Steelers will also be recovering
from the loss of Antonio Brown. They have Smith-Schuster and a lot of
question. The Pats will put Gilmore on JuJu. If he shuts him down, or
comes close, the Steelers are in big trouble. The Steelers will have a
very nice power run game with James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. But they
will have trouble getting past Shelton and Guy. And Wise was better
against the run than the rush in the Preseason.
as the Pats wait for AB to reinforce the passing game and help turn it
elite. The Pats will win in the old school fashion with defense and the
run game. Then next week Antonio Brown, the best WR at getting open in
pattern in the NFL, joins the team. Harry can study everything he does and
Gordon as well, as Jakobi learns his trade in the slot behind Edelman. By
October the passing game is going to be something to see.
