Jax: Abbreviated Break Down
4/5/2006 Note by Pats1: Don't mind this thread, I'm just getting some stuff from 2005 online.
First Offensive series - JaxO1
Kickoff: Hobbs at the 10, 18 yd return, good blocking - no one got past the 28, but Jax kept any lanes from opening.
1st and 10 NE 28: 4 wide, Play Action Pass to Faulk underneath 6 yds, double-teams on RDE and LDT. Neal was thrown down by Stroud, Neal grabbed his ankle to trip him and keep Tommy from getting creamed. Jax came out in a 4-2 nickel. 10 yd penalty holding.
1st and 20 NE 18: Shotgun, Faulk in motion to make it 5 wide, Stroud came across causing Neal to jump - Neal needs to settle down, that could have been called on him too. 5 yd penalty encroachment.
1st and 15 NE 23: Shotgun, Faulk in motion to make it 5 wide, Tommy beaned the Umpire trying to hit Watson on a square-in - he had a step on the LB. Hochstein had a nice pancake on Stroud when he tried to slip by him.
2nd and 15 NE 23: No-Huddle, 3 wide TE left, Faulk offset right. Tommy may have thrown this away since the coverage was closing down, the pass was high - aimed at Watson in the cover-2 seam (like the pass to Givens on the first Tampa drive). Neal had a nice pancake on Stroud. Mankins and Hochstein doubled Henderson.
3rd and 15 NE 23: 4 wide. Tommy stepped up in the pocket to avoid the DE pincer then scrambled with an open field in front of him - he missed seeing Watson wide open on the right side line, 7 yds.
4th and 8 NE 30: Miller 46 yd punt, Jax 9 yd return, Paxton slammed returner down.
Analysis: NE spread the field and Jax countered with the nickel package. Good coverage, Tommy only found underneath routes open. Nerves affected Neal and Jaxâ€™s Stroud.
First Defensive series - JaxD2
1st and 10 Jax 33: 2 wide left TE right I formation - slot (Wilford) in motion to line up behind LG facing left. Run Taylor 1 yd right side. Beisel took on the RG in the hole and ate up the FB who double-teamed him to try and open the hole; Wilfork was double-teamed by the C/LG - Vrabel helped Vince split the double-team to hit the RB head on; Colvin 'goosed' Wilford and sent him on his face when he bent sideways in front of him - presumably to cut block, but it looked like he was picking dandelions - hilarious.
2nd and 9 Jax 34: 2 wide TE right I formation, 1 step drop-quick pass to left WR. Hobbs had dropped back 8 yds before the snap, but read it and was quickly up to make the tackle for no gain.
3rd and 9 Jax 34: Shotgun, 4 wide, 3 right, RB offset left. Pass incomplete on crossing pattern underneath - Asante had good coverage aand Leftwich threw it a step too far. NE 4-2 nickel, tight coverage at line - no jamming. Willie did a nice job of driving the RT into the RB who was trying to duck across the pocket to release into the right flat .
4th and 9 jax 34: 44 yd bouncing punt, Dwight picked it up and stepped out of bounds to save a couple yards.
1st and 10 NE 22: 3 wide 2 right TE right. Play-action pass to Faulk 12 yds. Watson stayed in to double RDE and keep him from getting downfield so there was a clear throwing lane to the right flat. Mankins did a sweet job, first double-teaming Henderson with Hochstein, then releasing him to Russ to help Kaczur who was getting beaten inside by the LDE.
1st and 10 NE 34: No-huddle, 3 wide 2 left TE left. Faulk stretch play left 19 yds. Beautiful blocking - Watson road the LDE laterally left freeing Kaczur to take out the SS; Mankins handled Henderson; Neal cut the RLB coming on a run blitz; Hochstein sealed the LLB who slid too far right; Troy blocked the nickelback and Givens the LCB.
1st and 10 Jax 47: No-huddle, 3 wide 2 right TE flanked left. Watson, screen left, loss of 3 yds. Henderson read the screen and Neal was unable to get an angle to block him cleanly.
2nd and 13 @ 50: No-huddle, 3 wide 2 right TE right, P.Pass offset left. Henderson walked Mankins back and batted down the pass - Tommy had time, just didnâ€™t get a clear throwing lane to hit Patrick underneath - looked like he might have forgotten how tall a 6-7â€ť DT could make himself.
3rd and 13 @ 50: Shotgun, 3 wide 2 right TE left, pass Branch 20 yds. Deion found a gap in the zone in the middle of the field. Great pocket.
1st and 10 Jax 30: No-huddle, 4 wide, 3 right. Brady rolled to his left to avoid the rush and missed high to Deion on a sideline comeback. Kaczur took the LDE inside and across the pocket, Mankins again came off a double-team to help when Nick was beaten after he got the man to the right side of the pocket, Logan was able to cut him as he turned to pursue Tommyâ€™s rollout. Penalty, Illegal contact, 5 yds, auto 1st down.
1st and 10 Jax 25: 3 wide 2 right TE left. Run, Faulk right side 1 yd. Good blocking opened a hole, Neal got upfield to get a piece of the MLB - who threw him off but would have been too late for the tackle; The FS made a good read and came up fast to make the tackle.
2nd and 9 Jax 24: No-huddle, Shotgun, 4 wide 3 left, Faulk in motion right for 5 wide. Gorin was beaten inside by the RDE who knocked Neal off the RDT and flushed Tommy outside, the RDT ran him down for the sack, loss of 4 yds. Mankins was very naughty and tried to push Henderson to make him trip over Hochstein who had fallen down when Neal was knocked off their double-team, Henderson could be seen trying to get the Umpire to call a chop-block. Jax was in a 4-1 dime, they had stayed in the nickel up to then.
3rd and 13 Jax 28: No-huddle, 3 wide 2 left TE left - Jax calls TO.
3rd and 13 Jax 28: Shotgun, 3 wide 2 left TE right - Jax 3-3 nickel, blitz look RLB/Nickelback, rushed 3 - Watson dropped the pass inside the 5 - Tommy was high but it was catchable; nearly intercepted, Deion made a nice play tackling the DB at the 6.
4th and 13 Jax 28: FG formation - Vinatieri pooch punt 24 yds, Paxton made a nice direct snap and then raced down to tip the ball before it went into the end zone - downed by Graham. (Mruczkiowski led a horde of big men in a Keystone Cops pileup trying to down the ball and nearly knocking it into the end zone before Graham swooped in with the good hands.) Ball downed on the Jax 4.
More to follow.
I'm in the process of quickly converting this to the regular format and putting it in the .htm file. I'm adding series headers and all that jazz.
The 3rd quarter is almost done on my end.
I didn't feel like writing up each player unless they stood out in some fashion, folks pretty much have a handle on what the guys are doing from our earlier work.
I, for one, really appreciate these reads. Great stuff.
1st and 10 Jax 4: 3 wide 2 left TE right. Jones right side, bounced it outside for 4 yds. Warren shoved the RT into the RB, then was taken down with a judo throw to keep him from making the tackle for no gain - the Umpire was probably screened from the play, the Ref must have been checking his horoscope. Beisel pursued well for the tackle with Rosie coming on backside pursuit to pile on for fun.
2nd and 6 Jax 8: 2 wide, I formation, TE right-motion to behind LG. Taylor left side 3 yds. Wilfork was pushed back by the C, but kept this feet and kept pushing to clog things up. Beisel was stood up briefly by the TE, then threw him down and helped clog things for Sey to make the tackle. Everybody on the front seven was minding their gaps and clogging the middle.
3rd and 3 Jax 11: Shotgun, 4 wide trips left. Pass to Taylor on a swing route, 2 yds. D in a 4-1 dime with Vrabes at MLB - he read Leftwichâ€™s eyes and hustled out to cover, got juked, but made the one handed ankle tackle to keep him from the first down.
4th and 1 Jax 13: 30 yd punt out at the Jax 43.
Mike, you want to grab them here or should I e-mail them to you?
1st and 10 Jax 43: 3 wide 2 right TE left. Run Dillon up the middle 5 yds. Mankins slowed up Henderson for Kaczur to get inside him, then got the LLB and screened out the MLB whom Cory faked into playing too far left before cutting back behind Mankinsâ€™ block. Good push up the middle against those two DTs. Jax 4-2 nickel.
2nd and 5 Jax 38: 3 wide, 2 right TE left. Pitch left to Dillon, no gain. Watson came in motion from wide right to wham block the RDE, pancaking him and freeing Gorin to lead the sweep. Givens was in the slot and got confused when Mathis came inside following Watson - D-Giv hit Mathis, then released him to block the RLB (presumably his original target), he got a good block on the LB, but Mathis was able to stretch the play out allowing the LB to fight off D-Givâ€™s block and make the tackle. If David had held his block on Mathis and left the RLB for Gorin, Cory should have been able to get the corner and make positive yards if not a first down. Jax 4-3.
3rd and 5 Jax 38: Shotgun, 3 wide 2 left TE right. Pass Watson, square out, 8 yds. Tommy had a great pocket. Watson was covered by a LB and did a nice job of fighting though the jam and screening the defender with his body to give Tommy a target. Jax 4-2 nickel.
1st and 10 Jax 30: 3 wide 2 left TE right. Run Dillon right side 1 yd. Mankins tripped over Hochsteinâ€™s feet while pulling to lead Dillon, this closed Coryâ€™s hole and threw the timing all off, Jax was able to close everything down. Jax 4-3.
2nd and 9 Jax 29: 3 wide 2 left TE right RB offset left. Tommy was forced up in the pocket by the LDE (whom Kaczur rode past him and out of the play), he got nervous and scrambled for two yds sliding down - he had time and protection unless he saw something downfield the camera didn't show. Jax 4-2 nickel.
3rd and 7 Jax 27: Shotgun, 4 wide 3 right RB offset left. Tommy scrambled and was sacked at the sideline, 3 yd loss. The pocket held for a 5 Mississippi count before the blitzing LLB fought through Faulkâ€™s block all the way around behind the pocket and got a hand on Tommy while he was falling (Kevin had his jersey and slung him down, the Ref was checking his horoscope for NE this time) - Tommy 'c'ocked his arm twice and pulled it back down during that count. Great coverage downfield. Tommy missed Faulk slide out to the left to give him a dump off target and scrambled out to the right instead, looking downfield and running for the sideline. Really good blocking by the line during the scramble. Jax 4-2 nickel.
4th and 10 Jax 30: Shotgun, 3 wide 2 left TE right RB offset left. NE TO.
4th and 10 Jax 30: Shotgun, 3 wide 2 left TE flanked left RB offset right. Tommy wasnâ€™t ready for the snap - miscommunication between him and Hochstein. He picked up the ball and scrambled left, his arm was hit as he tried to throw. Jax 4-2 nickel - both LBs showed blitz and came, the movement up front may have affected the communication and timing between Tommy and Russ. Still good protection for Tommy to recover the ball and look downfield, he had a 4 Mississippi count before he started to the left and was hit at the 5 count.
Ball over on downs to Jax at Jax 30.
Analysis: Cory Dillon is forcing the Jags to switch back and forth on running and passing downs from the 4-3 base defense to a nickel package. Judging from what they were doing, it looks like they game-planned for Dillon, and were thrown off by Faulk starting the game.
