ok so last week we played a game a that many of us thought and many experts thought we would win but sadley that was not the case at all. we played good but not good enough. chad henne,brian hartline,brandon marshall, and davon bess had monster games and jason allen had a game that evreyone including him would probably love to forget. but thats ok because week 3 of the 2010 season is over and were 2-1 in an early 3 team tie for first. week 4 for us comes monday night against the patriots in a game that is HUGE for us as well as them and there are 3 keys to victory i have in mind that in my opinion will get us the W and hopefully sole possession of first place in our division.......more after the jump
key #1-our passing offense vs there passing defense- ok this is a no brainer chad henne exploded last week against a decent jets secondary without "revis island" they had antonio cromartie and first round pick kyle wilson and there ok safety's and boy did we tear them up well the pats have a struggling secondary with 2nd year player darius butler,rookie devin mccourty and even there veteran safety brandon merriweather i honestly feel like we can rape this secondary next monday and give them a good whoopin. there probably gonna put butler on marshall wich is a monumental mismatch and maybe pick up some help from ss patrick chung for the casual double coverage but thats fine because that will leave fasano,bess, and hartline open to do some serious dammage so for chad am expecting at least 275 from the air anything below that would be a bit of a let down. we should have our way with them offensively.
key #2- putting pressure on brady!- in weeks 1 and 2 we did a good job getting to the qb but the jets did a good job blocking upfront well that can't happen again we have to get to tom brady and force him into making some bad throws or let him take the hit and loose yardage. putting good pressure on brady will result in turnovers in our favor our at least bad throws in his part but misi and wake have to get to the qb and hopefully oderick will be back and if he is he better get to the qb as well. so our guys upfront have to make an impact.
key #3- killing the passing game- stoping grownkowski and hernandez this team loves lining up with 2-3 te's at times and we cant let them tear us up. i dont think any of the 3 are nearly as good as keller and shiancoe but hey brady can make them look amazing and we cant let that happen we have to take those 2 weapons away and hope allen does at least a decent job on tate which i think should not be a problem and smith try to maintain welker and i fully expect vontae to hold up his own very well against moss. if we do this the pats will run the ball a bit more and that should be an easy task for our d to stop without a problem.
so there you go my 3 keys to victory destroy there secondary,and disrup there passing game as a whole with pressure on brady and good covearage on there receivers we have the secondary to do it so lets do it. i full expect us to go 3-1 into our bye week ill be back be fore our week 6 battle vs the packers to give you my 3 keys to victory against them. go phins!
