NFL Sunday: Flip it Around - The Patriots Defense vs the Jaguars Offense

Dec 23, 2012|

The boys take a look at how how the Pats D matches up with the Jags offense. With no MJD, Jacksonville has a revolving door at RB. The Pats need to focus on not letting up the big play and containing. They will be on the hunt for more turnovers of course. The guys say Henne is a very solid QB and don't be surprised if he ends up throwing for a decent amount of yards today because that may be exactly what the Pats intend to give up.

Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

You know what does this mean -- a lot of people might look at their record book. You just -- that Islam ultimately local middle school baby -- -- -- try to do things right. He's just too wanted to do things right there in Newton -- ball did anything they please. They have doesn't -- position -- that committees and the place they have a bunch of they have want to back that. Cared about this is so. Progress is -- -- charges for us so. We're not going in his thinking about in -- -- I'm just trying to put together a good game plan and that's Q where women. Hoping there is good enough force. Vince they got a bunch of guys who carry the ball because none of them are any good. -- Maurice Jones-Drew out who is good. Montell Owens Jordan Todd Whitman Rashad Jennings I'll watch Montell Owens of the last couple weeks he's specialties are one of the really best broke its ocean Hitler in the lead. What he now is carrying the ball reminds you -- little Sammy actually more slick guy it was team's first that really physical the ball that's very competitive the catch the ball back the pretty well. A pretty -- back averages like security carries as. He's a limited opportunities spent a couple you know couple weeks of work. What he's done a nice job so I think you look at it elect that -- definitely respect -- -- leader and I was -- -- name that jumps off the page you know from an offensive standpoint. -- has few guys in there it's been going back and forth since. Jones you've been around but this one of those things it is like to say he's there one is how. Running football teams like they say that it is gonna give the ball to the bag is nothing different in 1980s. Spectacular about their office we'll. Play the pretend game for a moment as we've been trying to figure out ways that as a patriots and you should be concerned. The last time Chad Henne played quarterback against the New England Patriots. He threw for a career best 416. Yards two touchdowns and an interception in 93 point six rating. In the in the patriot against the patriots course it was with Miami Dolphins at the time. He has 300 plus passing yards in three of his past four against New England. He's a decent not good not great but decent quarter. And exited quarterback I think you watch on film I I liked him better than blowing. Gabbert you know but the -- -- I'm watching him with one game without and I think child looks like accomplished guy back there when I don't think they have as a -- weapons. I think Justin Blackmon the wrong guy who's -- be really good he's really good run after catch ball real guy wants to get the ball -- hands. Roster -- off you know he he roams a little bit but once he gets the ball -- usually really good young player that's got aways to go bush dangers. You see him what is a run after catch she's one of the better guys have seen out there. And Cecil shorts is kind of -- him when we don't know that name -- which really need to research this guy he just he has certainly -- 75 yards for a thousand this year yet he sort of has a Steve Smith sort of Victor Cruz kind of thing mutual visa. It's a midsize smallish guy -- its aggressive and really good routes catches well. Again Solio we watched that Houston game I -- excuse me it was last week Miami would just. Run the slant takes away a musical brought to catch guy he's competitive and it is he's not a huge guy -- still throw -- from the -- which is interest in for the kind of body type but. I think he's their their profits were a little easier though to nail down we got to take away this guy that guy and that's probably what makes them a little easier to stop. Running game is a little more pedestrian you have Greg Jones back there that kind of thing. That's you know I used to be running back that now -- football fullback that'll get some carries in short yardage. They like the backs in the flat. Mercedes Lewis is basically the basketball player body type the to jump ball guys in the red zone and you you be more from there. But I I think you breed can't spend this too much there's there are a lot of places little girl so I think there's reasons by the way. Gotta take top and off my list that put him on IR this said he didn't. They were you -- -- one aspect away from their game. I want their best aspects in this run into bowl. Widowed Jones-Drew when he's available for you -- get away from you kind of crippled among the debate Cheney has a great court I mean I agree -- he's a good quarterback a good Smart quarterback. If you listen to him on being interviewed him earlier in the week and he spoke. About bill Belichick's defense he spoke about the last time he played against -- Bill Belichick he -- in he knew he knows that. Bill Belichick came came after him -- last time we played so he's expecting a little bit of that but -- not quite sure that he's gonna give it would it's one of those games I would just say. Gore very -- bonus wonderful book and. I think there really struggle in third in unmanageable talked about the -- Miami -- this year it's a million buffaloes that way their team has not built. A complete third and ten. So your point Kevin they really -- some positive yards on first or second now it's routines -- through that they're driven to tears at all. Basically in this town about her. They struggled that much more and that's -- though. I don't think the risky you know Crabtree blitz play is gonna happen this week I think if you see. -- and I don't think you should feel badly if we wake up Monday morning and Chad -- has 300 passing because it might be flossing all you know in my view it might -- the lawsuit -- and let -- try to be where American BO Malia and usually unnecessarily aggressive this week. We sound phenomenal defense he stops and regular secret -- -- -- -- -- place exactly so number one -- you don't need to risk Breen a fifth or sixth. And leave exposure especially -- -- talk about -- you know thousand diner is down were sealed shuffling in the back to that when his issue -- believe. And and Dmitri it's bunker and I think I don't know this ludicrous stock Chris prices chair -- -- resistor we think now yeah I don't know that I just know that. There was it wasn't like that season Africa and it was a Banco may be -- an effective and -- were -- for life he needs to be out this week and my being excluded and it goes the theory we've been talking all along we need as many guys that are program is run begins this loss also might have been through cut off for instance Broncos play this week -- party list of him -- they're Smart. One would now it in the way things lay out right now they're likely all not gonna have a bye week okay. So I'd probably want grant to get some snaps next week against the dolphins knock the rust off a little bit -- -- -- -- a -- -- -- from the -- -- -- this -- no -- I don't know I don't I don't wanna see in this week at all but next week I can see them wanting. Yet some snaps forum specially if you don't have a bye week you're gonna have to play the the following week. It makes sense to me that you plan against the dolphins next week it doesn't make any sense to me mr. drama there today. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Patriots defense will also get Jermaine Cunningham back at midnight tonight tomorrow beacon beaten him back in it was literally practicing and had a global and this guy and I'm being somewhat facetious here -- he is eligible to come off suspension tomorrow. In the facility hasn't been allowed to be in the facility for the four weeks. You know as is our look back on it probably Belichick and like anybody who gets their suspension Bolden got one already. Cunningham has got one my guess is he's probably more disappointed in Cunningham. Just in terms of guy's been around a little while should -- you know what's allowed what -- should know what what's right from wrong where may be a young kid could make a mistake. Veteran guy shouldn't be making them. You can see her go or you won't do it happens. On May not thinking as far as when you hear about a guy getting suspended specially as a coach and being around bill for so long it's long hosting you. You feel for the guy. -- the same time you think about your team and the next question is -- Who can I get the food is best -- You can't think about -- good idea because it ever to happen Jerry deviated. On this one postings OK next idea. You have to feel it is guys lord no matter what and it's happened twice this year for 31 most dangerous game analyst for near Kevin to try to funeral bills like and it's. That's not I don't wanna live in that world but I think that. -- blessing in disguise the way it worked out which party was more angry about it and I think. The idea that you got to see a little more -- on -- that was probably priests more pickup in the offseason he can help and pension he's done some things for. Justin Francis is actually got longer mentioned France and he's he's he's also a guy who I think earned himself vote on a few extra -- the course of game a little bit of rule and I think it's who would do know you have those guys because. Again knock on wood -- doesn't happen bullet. The may be an injury you know from now he'll be in this effort just never know all its -- do regardless he opened on the roster which were. I would expect now. If I thought there were any issues at all to worry about from Jacksonville would be on the offensive side of the ball as opposed to the defensive side of the ball. That's probably also included in the fact that the patriots defensively have had issues from time to time. But -- back to a point Kevin made earlier about unfortunately for the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday night. Fortunately for Jacksonville patriots had some issues on Sunday night if there was any chance any possibility. A lack of focus it all disappeared at about midnight Sunday night -- what's what's unusual in this is why you you talk about each -- union -- its own separate entity. If you matter about San Francisco you don't get a -- -- against Jacksonville because they do so many different things right any -- so you really don't get to sort of you know -- -- -- bad -- and just play different kind of challenge for -- college bullet. It's not you know we're not gonna -- to go back and see the same run schemes -- proof that we can stop American ago a move the pocket quarterback African. You know prove that we can keep its report you know you're not to -- see the bullets in the -- of the rush packages in the games from the front the -- percent to -- The pretty Vanilla to be for. Frank with with. Jacksonville's front for you know accuracy of the does or you're not going to work on what didn't work last week the brutality got to go back to your fundamental challenges internal. Is that this is internal. And as I said at about midnight. Sunday night of that challenge -- it became a lot less of a challenged him at all. Most definitely and I've -- good guys. No you know with a stake in understand it was really really -- -- this whole week it's special Leo Wednesday whenever they got the surprise of full pad practice out there and in the past few -- experience shows in helmets if. Yet I think I overlooked special edition do that this is a week the riddler challenges while for special teams penalties last week and returned. And in the kick off group which has been great all season. The 62 yarder exactly in in you go back to watch that play its ultimate government being coached up on myself from the teams were always with. You have to win wanna I wanna kickoff coverage and you always have to win 11 of the sizable. So if you try to go back door to make the play UG neutral in the fans other backdoor means you know fired up. Deal right in the -- -- the -- to the -- I wanted to restrict or on the marked the left some guys get stuck on blocks in a couple guys went back to work. Joyce have to wait to the place a couple guys did make that happen so you know with a gap it's basically. Kick return often is sort of vote elongated version of office of line with that kind of closes itself you're basically in profits of run play. So when you saw a breakdown there was a couple guys that -- the war in a couple of guys for a left side didn't get over the top of the right side you find -- gap. In the next Aaliyah one plate of on on a pressure in DC how much of an impact that it happens to big week for the specialty gases while I've referenced earlier the that the Carolina play that we -- years ago. We were much the same situation a couple of bad weeks. But a great weeks and -- who -- and challenge us. In that game you know return we -- really horrible to their group and -- brown sixty -- return that was huge for a proposal would go with -- of the field. And really a big boost for a school and especially remember. You know by the -- Brad Stevens was pushed -- -- and I had I -- just about an exaggerator if you'll remember this you know couple weeks -- were in Pittsburgh in the AFC championship game in the big return we have that we a lot of block for -- -- field -- we have a game a lot of them momentum that we -- -- -- -- was sort of -- ourselves and -- -- -- Carolina down there again we needed to get ourselves a contract.
