Pulpit was nice enough to answer 5 questions about the New England Patriots for us:1. Give us injury updates on Gronk and Sony Michel. How likely are we to see those guys on Sunday?Few teams in the NFL play their cards as close to the vest as the Patriots Marcus Mariota Jersey , especially when it comes to injuries. However, judged by the latest injury reports it appears as if both are realistic options to suit up on Sunday: Gronkowski (ankle/back) and Michel (knee) were both at practice to open the week which is a good sign when it comes to their availability. In my opinion, Michel has a better chance to play considering that New England always try to be as cautious as possible when it comes to Gronkowski [UPDATE: Gronk is likely out]– and with the bye week coming up, they might opt to give him an extra week of rest. The biggest concern, as things stand right now, are two starting offensive linemen: right guard Shaq Mason and left tackle Trent Brown are both on the injury report, and against a defense as good as Tennessee’s would be big losses.2. Is Josh Gordon fully acclimated to the offense at this point? What impact have you seen on the offense as a whole having him out there?I think he’s as acclimated as you can expect him to be after joining the team while the season was already in full swing. Whether that can be classified as “fully” or not needs to be judged by others, but I think the Patriots can certainly be happy with his development so far. His impact certainly can be felt after all: Gordon gives the team a serious talent at the wideout position which a) forces teams to respect the deep and jump ball, b) frees things up elsewhere when it comes to coverage, and c) allows Chris Hogan to play his more natural role as a number three. Furthermore, Gordon gives the team a physical presence against tight man coverage – something it has lacked before.3. What is one weakness the Patriots have on defense that the Titans can attack?Does “not having 11 Trey Flowers and Stephon Gilmores on the field” count? Seriously, though, with the exception of the aforementioned Trey Flowers and Stephon Gilmore, the Patriots’ biggest problem so far this season has been consistency – and the best example of this is when it comes to pressuring the quarterback (even though it worked very well against the Packers on Sunday) Ryan Tannehill Jersey , covering crossing patterns, and the linebackers being isolated in one-on-one matchups. Attacking the middle of the field with players like Dion Lewis and [looks at injury report] oh... well, attacking the middle of the field with quick crossers against the linebacker corps is one way teams found success against New England this season.4. Tom Brady has to decline eventually, right? Have you seen any signs of that this season?Well... in theory Brady has to decline at one point, but we cannot rule him being a demigod out just yet either. So I’ll play it safe and pass on the first question. The second one, however, I can answer. Despite being 41 years old, Brady has not shown any troubling signs of decline this year. Yes, his statistics are down when compared to his ridiculous three-year stretch from 2015 to 2017 but this mostly stems from early season chemistry issues (and a wide receiver group consisting of Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett) and a few head-scratching decisions. The former appears to be very much fixed right now with Julian Edelman returning and Josh Gordon fitting well into the offense (also: with James White being immensely productive), while the latter appears to be getting better as well. Overall, Brady still looks very good from both a physical and mental perspective. 5. Write the headline in Sunday’s Tennessean.Home Schooled: Mike Vrabel loses battle against his former coach. (sorry but that’s just the way I predict it) (also, feel free to use it if in fact my prediction turns out to be true, hehehe) Mike Vrabel addressed the media today after a let down loss in Buffalo. Some of the main themes of his message were consistency Delanie Walker Jersey , effort, and focus. As usual, the coach refused to point the blame at any individual players, saying that the only two guys that the Titans didn’t need more from against the Bills were Ryan Succop and Brett Kern. It sounded like Vrabel was disappointed in the effort from the defense on the Josh Allen touchdown run. There appeared to be a lack of intensity from some players in pursuit of the Bills quarterback on that play and that’s unacceptable. As Vrabel said, “they can beat us, but they can’t outwork us.” Vrabel was quick to take responsibility for the delay of game penalty that pushed a 3rd and 3 to a 3rd and 8 during a Titans drive on the edge of field goal range. He said that he thought they were going to get it off and didn’t want to use a timeout if he didn’t have to. The big injury question coming out of the Bills game was with regards to Taylor Lewan who left early with a foot injury. He is having an MRI today to see what exactly is going on with the injured foot. It’s something that Lewan said he’s dealt with in the past. Dennis Kelly has a chance to be available this week according to Vrabel. He said that they worked him out before the game on Sunday and the biggest hurdle remaining is Kelly feeling comfortable that he’s ready to play. If Lewan’s injury is going to keep him out for any length of time, Kelly’s availability will be critical for the offense.Vrabel was asked about his feelings about the wide receiver depth and simply responded that he and Jon Robinson will continue to evaluate the roster at all positions, including receiver. I know the clamoring for Dez Bryant is going to ramp back up after Nick Williams let a potential win slip right through his arms in Buffalo, but do we really think adding the receiver who led the NFL in drops in 2017 to this roster is going to fix the drop issue? Vrabel praised Jonnu Smith’s work in pass protection, saying that it was much better this week than it was against the Eagles. Regarding his lack of targets, he said that he needs to continue to build trust with Marcus Mariota.The Titans coach had a conversation with Rashaan Evans about the tweet regarding inside linebacker not being his primary position. Vrabel said that Evans can’t have it both ways with regards to social media and has to be consistent with his approach regardless of whether the team wins or loses. Regarding his play in the game, he said that he thought Evans had some good moments, but also a couple missed tackles that he would like to have back. Specifically one where he tried to crush LeSean McCoy instead of just squaring him up and making the tackle. One thing that really struck me from the press conference was Vrabel’s willingness to admit that he doesn’t know everything regarding quarterback and running back play specifically. He admits that he’s never played those positions and therefore he can only make suggestions and lean on others who have. It’s refreshing to hear a coach admit to not being an all-knowing expert on all things football.
