Y Factors 2017: Patriots vs. Falcons

-by DNOMN8R314

The time for endless 28-3 jokes is over (ah, who are we kidding). The time for getting the defense on the right page… should have begun a while ago, but sure, “has begun.”

Juke box hero: The Falcons defense is built in the late 2010s style, thriving on speed in the secondary and linebacking corps. Perhaps as a direct countermeasure after Super Bowl LI, Bill Belichick added speed to the offense with the acquisitions of Brandin Cooks and Phillip Dorsett. However, more important to attacking Atlanta’s defense will be agility, as James White showed last February. Dion Lewis appears to be at full strength, and as New England’s most elusive running back and the current hot hand, he should receive quite a few touches. Furthermore, Rex Burkhead is healthy, and despite last week’s fumble, Mike Gillislee has begun breaking off some good runs, giving the Patriots a four-headed rushing attack. While speed at wide receiver may be a focal point, it is just as likely that the elusiveness at running back decides the game.

As of someone gently (w)rapping: Among the Patriots’ many issues on defense is their sudden inability to complete tackles, a problem against any team but particularly against the Falcons’ dual-RB attack of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, as good at breaking tackles for big gains as any backs in the league. The defense has not been as bad the last two weeks, limiting opponents to 31 total points in those games, but they are still giving up yards, especially on big plays. While the secondary has plenty of problems which are being written about and discussed ad nauseam, containing the running game is just as key to limiting an offense, particularly this potent Atlanta offense. That only means the Patriots have to stop Julio Jones….

Wash, rinse, repeat: This point is about playing better in the fourth quarter. Since the Patriots kept the (urgh) Jets alive, I am just going to copy and paste last week’s paragraph.
Through five weeks, Patriots opponents have scored nearly twice as many fourth-quarter points as New England has. This problem was particularly noticeable against Tampa Bay, as the Patriots’ pass defense suddenly began hemorrhaging yards, keeping the Buccaneers in the game until the final play. This, bluntly, is going to have to stop if New England wants to win. Pats fans are familiar with big leads disappearing in the fourth quarter (cough cough 28-3 cough), and no one following those in Foxboro – and definitely no one in Foxboro – wants to be on the other side of a game like that. I fully expect Bill Belichick and Matt Patricia, along with the defense’s leaders, to be aware of this problem and to emphasize playing a full 60-minute game. It may be a cliché – and I hate clichés as much as Hedley Lamarr – but it’s a cliché because it is true.

Per Rotoworld: The Boston Herald reports the Patriots want to extend contract-year CB Malcolm Butler.
Butler was shopped this offseason, but there’s mutual interest on him returning. With Stephon Gilmore making top corner money, it’s going to be difficult for the Patriots to sign him. It’s possible Butler will be franchised if Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t tagged.

BIlls dumped the Marcell Dareus contract on the Jags basically. I kind of like it for them. He’s a talented player but a bit overrated to me.
As for Jacksonville….. they’re a pretty finished roster right now. Obviously a defense teeming with talent but who’s going to play quarterback?

Not that you should choke anyone, but Mallet bit off more than he could chew.

I don’t have a definitive opinion on the Kiko hit on Flacco. Initially, it looked pretty dirty to me, but the more I see it, the more I see Flacco taking forever to slide and Kiko already in full speed mode.

Neil X
Member
Free agent
Neil X

Everything was OK until Alonso dipped his shoulder and elbow to maximize contact with Flacco’s head. He had to make that decision AFTER it was obvious Flacco was sliding. Totally deliberate, IMO. But yes, Flacco slid too late. My take is that it wasn’t a late hit on a sliding player, it was illegal contact to the head.

Free Boney or GTFO
Member
Free agent
Free Boney or GTFO

This is pretty much where my opinion sits. I think the collision was inevitable, but it doesn’t look like Kiko lets up once contact is made (like you said, the shoulder drop).

Kerthwap
Member
Free agent
Kerthwap

It’s a tough call at full speed. Had Flacco not slid, it would have been a textbook tackle. Had Kiko not been charging at him, Flacco would have kept running and got a first down. At slow motion it certainly looks awful, maybe we’ll get a “sports science” video that discusses the relative reaction times.
