Y-Not Factors 2017

-by DNOMN8R314

After posting a few bold predictions in the comments, one of you (I can’t remember who it was, but thank you for the inspiration) suggested I post my baseless predictions as an article and call them the “Y Not Factors.” I like it.

For now, these are going to cover the entire season. They may pop back once or twice over the year if more inspiration strikes, but at the moment, these are my three 2017 bold predictions. These are the Y-Not Factors.

Nate Solder catches a touchdown pass: Against Kansas City, Solder lined up as the eligible tackle in goal line sets, with LaAdrian Waddle taking his normal place on the line. Solder is one of only two Patriots with a touchdown catch from Brady in the postseason but not in the regular season [SURPRISE TRIVIA QUESTION: who is the other? Answer below], and if Mike Gillislee continues to perform well on the goal line, that could set up a tackle-eligible pass against a team who sells out to stop the run.

Dion Lewis gets traded: [EDIT: D.J. Foster has been signed off the Patriots’ practice squad by the Cardinals, TEN MINUTES after I wrote this, rendering a large chunk of this paragraph irrelevant.] This is the topic I’m seeing all over Twitter today with the news of David Johnson’s wrist injury. The Patriots do have a strong running back depth chart with Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, James White, and Lewis, and D.J. Foster (who has had two strong preseasons) is on the practice squad. While Lewis’ elusiveness is a fantastic trait to have on the field and New England has not been actively shopping him, I do see three points that suggest to me a potential trade. First, Lewis only saw five offensive snaps Week 1, and while there are lots of points of criticism against Josh McDaniels’ plan for the offense, this stat does suggest Lewis may no longer be seen as a main focus of the offense. Second, if injuries continue (which unfortunately seems likely), the possibility of a team upping the price to get Lewis increases. Bill Belichick and Nick Caserio wore the Seahawks down over the summer to acquire Cassius Marsh; it’s entirely possible someone will be persistent enough to get Lewis. The third point is Foster, for whom New England has tried to make a roster spot each of the past two seasons. Last year they were able to, while this year the running back is on the practice squad, and the easiest way to open a spot would be to trade Lewis.

Cody Hollister scores a touchdown before Jacob Hollister: [SURPRISE TRIVIA ANSWER: James Develin, in the same game. I think he gets one this year too.] Jacob may be the third tight end on the roster, but as he is a receiving specialist and not primarily a blocker, I think New England will generally keep him as a healthy scratch for most of the season, should injuries not get in the way. The Patriots did the same thing with A.J. Derby last year, keeping the preseason standout on the inactive list, before trading him to Denver. While Cody’s signing was mainly met with reactions of “awesome, twins!” and “special teams,” the receiver flashed in the later preseason games (yes, against backups, I know). Should injuries continue to wallop New England’s WR corps and special teams units, Cody could find himself not only on the roster but on the field in both areas. (Of course, now that I made this prediction, watch Jacob be active next week and score three TDs.)

Man, the only thing worse then seeing pats get crushed at home in that fashion is the anticipation of the rebound game. Ok, it’s actually not worse, that Thursday night game was far more worse. I just hope Danny gets cleared, this O needs him badly. Brady was 105-0 when leading in the 4th at home until last week!Report

Ayers was a great pickup in 2014. But, I’m hoping Wise and Marsh will solidify at DE, so HT can return to form at LB, and Van Noy, Harris can really step up. I’m betting we see more Roberts this week, and I hope Langi gets healthy. He looked like the real deal in preseason.Report

I don’t think the Patriots defense is as bad as people have been making it out to be. Like I said, we’ve seen this movie before. Every season, Bill tinkers and experiments with stuff defensively until he finds what every player is good at and then everything gels. Look at the stuff that works so far: 3rd down pass rush and secondary (in general). Right now the middle of the defense (Linebackers) is the problem, but that automatically upgrades when you move Hightower back to proper position.

We’ll see an entirely different defense by game 4-5.Report

M.Fan
Member
Free agent

But these issues are linked: if you move back HT to his proper position, you automatically make the linebackers more stable, but also automatically lose some of the threat and punch that he gave on third down pass rushes. I guess that issue is more that some no-name players will need to upgrade their playing level than some star players playing at another position. And we have no guarantee that no-name linebackers will be able to improve…Report

Simms has been terrible for years, but when he started with Nantz in the late 90’s he was quite good and a breath of fresh air. I think the closer the player is to their playing days, the sharper they are in the booth. Then the game seems to pass them by, or they don’t care to put in the effort to prepare and study like they used to, and their sharp analysis is replaced with confusing platitudes about grit and determination. Or you’re John Gruden and you just go straight for the grit.Report

Saints always stink away from home. They will play better (on offense) in their dome. Pats will have to put up 30+.Report

With Drew Brees at the helm , I am always going to respect the Saints. After last week for the Patriots I am going to respect all teams.Report

well, Atlanta didn’t get wrecked too badly. It’s a mess out there though. About half the city without power still, and probably for a few more days. Trees and limbs down everywhere. But all things considered, it could have been a lot worse.Report

My neighborhood has some fallen trees. I had a fallen tree in my front yard. Thankfully the giant tree in the backyard was okay. My brother has been without power since 3pm yesterday.Report

Maybe double him with Van Noy so they can both run 5 yards behind him.Report

Well, it’s not like they are facing a real defense this week.

He certainly wouldn’t be able to run away from Harris.Report

The Saints are preparing for Harris’ speed by putting their grandmothers on defense.Report

I don’t get why ESPN has the Steelers as #1 in the power rankings. They were anything but impressive and needed a Kenny Britt drop to secure a win against the Browns. Chiefs, Packers, Cowboys all more impressive imo.Report

I’m not sure BB would have drafted Jaylon Smith in the 1st round. Cowboys took a huge risk drafting him when they did as he didn’t just have torn ligaments but he also had nerve damage.Report

Or Myles Jack, he was back to his old self with 14 tackles vs HOU. He was killing my USC boys when he was at UCLA.Report

Yea losing that pick hurt a little, because im quite sure we were going to draft a LB with collins and then hightower contract coming up at the timeReport

https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-the-top-rookie-of-the-year-candidates-after-week-1 1. Kareem Hunt, RB, Kansas City Chiefs (Overall grade: 85.9; season snap count: 39) With the exception of a fumble on his very first carry, Hunt’s professional debut was simply spectacular. Hunt was our highest-graded rookie in Week 1 and he was also our highest-graded running back, period. The rookie out of Toledo put up an absurd 145.5 elusive rating (ER boils down a runner’s success beyond the point of being helped by his blockers) after he forced eight total missed tackles on 22 total touches while averaging 4.0 yards after contact per attempt, a rate which led all… Read more »
