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