October 28th, find beconase aq 2012 at 12:43 pm
Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, find beconase aq 7-7, find beconase aq going into the second quarter.
The Patriots’ defensive starters were Vince Wilfork, find beconase aq Kyle Love, find beconase aq Chandler Jones, find beconase aq Rob Ninkovich, find beconase aq Jerod Mayo, find beconase aq Brandon Spikes and Dont’a Hightower in a 4-3 base with Kyle Arrington (right) and Alfonzo Dennard (left) at corner and Devin McCourty and Tavon Wilson at safety.
Cornerback Sterling Moore subbed for Spikes in the nickel on the first drive of the game.
Hightower was lined up in the slot in man coverage on a receiver at one point.
Chris Givens beat Wilson on the touchdown because Wilson was too stiff and flat-footed while Givens ran full speed in his direction. Find beconase aq Poor technique on Wilson’s part to surrender the deep ball so easiy. Find beconase aq It looked like trouble when Givens was still 10 yards in front of him.
Givens has 11 catches this season, find beconase aq and that’s his sixth 50-plus yarder, find beconase aq including his second touchdown. Find beconase aq Givens set a record with five straight games with a 50-yard reception. Find beconase aq The Patriots knew that would be coming.
The Patriots’ starting offensive line, find beconase aq from left to right, find beconase aq was Nate Solder, find beconase aq Donald Thomas, find beconase aq Ryan Wendell, find beconase aq Dan Connolly and Sebastian Vollmer.
Brandon Lloyd broke free from an aggressive look from cornerback Janoris Jenkins and scored an easy 19-yard touchdown on the Patriots’ third third-and-short conversion on the drive, find beconase aq including a penalty. Find beconase aq But Lloyd was asked this week if the Pats could use the Rams’ defensive aggressiveness against them, find beconase aq and he simply smiled and nodded. Find beconase aq He knew.
The Patriots used a big set on second-and-1 before the touchdown, find beconase aq with Michael Hoomanawanui at fullback and Marcus Cannon as a second left tackle. Find beconase aq And surprise, find beconase aq Stevan Ridley got stuffed for no gain by the hardest, find beconase aq cleanest hit of the game at that point. Find beconase aq Not only did the Patriots lose that battle, find beconase aq but they got smoked. Find beconase aq I’ve thought all along that the Patriot should run when it’s given, find beconase aq or at least stay out of the packages that force them to run. Find beconase aq They’re at their best when they can take the matchup to the defense, find beconase aq whether it’s called with personnel or audibled at the line, find beconase aq and these jumbo run sets take that opportunity away.
Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, find beconase aq and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. Find beconase aq Wes Welker busted his tail to get across the field to try to make the block that would have sprung him down the sideline, find beconase aq but he was a split second too late.
Arrington was replaced by Moore on the second drive. Find beconase aq He has a head injury and is questionable to return, find beconase aq but he was standing on the sideline without a helmet, find beconase aq which isn’t a good sign.
Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, find beconase aq so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Find beconase aq He couldn’t do it last week in his return from the ailment.
Great catch by Rob Gronkowski toward the end of the quarter. Find beconase aq That was thrown directly over his head, find beconase aq and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. Find beconase aq Not an easy one to haul in, find beconase aq especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.
Ridley has caught some criticism for negative plays, find beconase aq but so many, find beconase aq including the one-yard loss on the goal line, find beconase aq are the result of the line or blockers losing the push up front. Find beconase aq That’s been the biggest issue in those big sets.
