bump in the road that could be trouble is this odd Bye week that the NFL gave
the Pats. Why did they schedule this Bye week with a Thursday Night Game
followed by a Monday Night Game? It is very odd. This is the first time I have
ever seen that.
But I find
more good than bad in it. They could get a little rusty, like a normal Bye
week. "Yeah, you get into a routine, ready to play every seven days,"
BB said. "But we play them when they schedule them. So that’s all we can do."
But the timing could not have been more perfect for the Patriots if BB
had planned it himself.
it is a massive advantage for the Pats to have essentially two Bye Weeks
handed to them for no apparent reason. And it certainly came at the most opportune
time for too many reasons to count. Like N'Keal Harry being
given an extra week of training camp and attending the Brady School of

likely benefited more than any other player from this odd Bye week. "He’s coming along. Yeah, he’s coming
along," BB said in a compilation about N'Keal. "He’s getting back into the practice routine. We have other guys taking reps for game plan
stuff. So most of it’s scout team. Just take extra time to do it. Practice time’s really allocated to getting the team ready for the
Jets. But there’s other times we can work on it." He will be much
more prepared when next he steps into the fray.
gave a massively important mini-camp to the two new TEs: Tomlinson and
old man Watson. It gave Jakobi Meyers a ton of extra practice time, after he
proved to Brady against the Giants that he is worthy. But hopefully most impactfully,
it gave Gordon and Dorsett chances to heal a little more and now they are active for

yeah, adding a lot of team members, players and other staff," BB said
"He’s getting there (Eric). I mean, it’s obviously a lot of ground to make
up. But he’s working hard at it. Nick Caley has spent a lot of time with him, so we’ll see."
And it couldn't have come at a better time, with Izzo likely out for the
game on Monday Night.
important, because while the Jets Offense has been a joke, their defense
is not. They are going to need to run the ball, and having a two-TE set
with Watson and Tomlinson will be a lot of extra blocking. I'm not sure
how much they want to use Watson in the run game, with their receiving
Corps so deplete. He was signed to be a veteran catcher, not a blocker. But

"New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez said it's no coincidence that Russia continues getting foreign policy victories over the Trump administration.
Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told ABC News' This Week Sunday that President Donald Trump's troop withdrawal in Syria and accusations he "extorted" Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky left one clear winner: Russia.
He warned that the Kurdish people are under grave threat of "ethnic cleansing" in the wake of Trump's Syria pullout and he proposed sanctions on both Turkey and Russia. The senator said Trump "betrayed" America's Kurd allies and said the administration's purpose becomes clear when one analyzes why the Russians keep "winning."
"[Pulling out of Syria] is a betrayal of our foreign policy to the Russians, who are the big winners in this, and that's part of the problem here," Menendez said Sunday. "All roads lead to Russia with the president. And every time that there is an issue or a conflict, it seems that Russia ends up winning."
