When the New England Patriots faced Miami Dolphins last week, there were experts, Dolphin fans and how even on my Twitter feed some Patriot fans who thought in 19 and 1/2 points spread was disrespectful.
I can only imagine how they feel right now after the latest spread came out today and they have the Patriots at 8 23 and 1/2 point favorite.
I'm sure that some people believe this is disrespectful to the Jets, but they're really not a good place right now.
The Jets are dealing with a lot of injuries.
They're on their third backup quarter there on the third quarterback in three weeks.
And all the nonsense about the Jets testing the Patriots Rain and the A F C East is long gone.
The Patriots are hot right now in the New York Jets of all teams won't be slowing them down.
To quote an unfriendly friend of the show, Patrick or ah of the Patriots.
No way, no how so.
It's just about time for Patriot and to sit back, relax, get ready for another patriotsvictory in.
Tonight, I'll talk about why the New York Jets will be nothing but another preseason game for our New England Patriots.
Dear Pats Nature.
What's going on? It's your boy Ray in Welcome to my little show here on DP and Ladies and Gentlemen, Apache Nation.
It is Thursday, September 19th.
Thank you for all of you who are tuning in Live to this sportscaster stream and thank everybody.
Who's watching the replays on YouTube? This is my last night on sportscaster Till I'm back from my play by play on Sunday.

That's at DP an underscore Ray.
And before I get into things, I want to say that I saw some big news today come across discord and the king is back and it seems like we're just around the corner from getting videos from our boy kissed the rings, so I hope you guys will go check out that out.
Actually leave a link to his channel in my description below, because he is the number one trash talker in Pats Nation.
And ladies and gentlemen, let's start talking about our New England Patriots, because here in D p n, we like football.
We like football season and everything that goes with it.
So look, even if and this is a big if the Jets were actual contenders in the A F C East right now, if they actually had the roster in the team to compete with the Patriots, which they didn't.
But right now the Jets are so beat up, they really don't stand a single chance on Sunday.
Sam Darnold, Sam Darnold.
Who? Some of the non educated football people out there fans, analysts, Jets, media said he was gonna be the best quarterback in the A F C East won't even have a chance to prove himself against the best quarterback to ever play the game of football.
He's at home right now, treating himself with mono, the kissing disease.
The Jets thought maybe Trevor Simeon could give them a chance to get through this period But he got injured last month or this Monday when he took on the Browns.
That just left everything on the shoulders of poor Luke Falk.
Now, I already said in a stream earlier this week that the only team the folk could have had a chance of succeeding within the NFL was the New England Patriots.
Adam Gays had Broad Falk over from Miami.
You know, Bilbo check this week, was trying to pump his tires, talking about how he's the only quarterback who really understands the jet system, and familiar is because of his familiarity with Adam.
Case from one atom.
Gates was in Miami with them.
Trust me, Fox gonna look no better than Ryan Fitzpatrick did last week.
Sir Patrick is getting benched for Josh Rosen.
So I don't know what they think they're gonna do with Luke Falk leading the way.
But they're not just beat up at the quarterback position.
They're missing a lot of their players.
Chris turned into tight, and he's suspended for this game.
Wide receiver to Marius Thomas.
Demand that wasn't good enough to stand.
The Patriots was traded to the Jets.
He won't play Quincy a new was on the I R.
Defensively, they got a ton of guys banged up Quinton Williams or defense.
Lyman is didn't participate in practice today.
CJ Mosley didn't participate in practice today.
Jordan Jenkins didn't participate.
That's practice today.
Those are three guys that can rush the passer for the Jets, and even if they can play on Sunday, they're obviously not gonna be 100%.
They're not gonna be at the top of their game, which helps the Patriots offensive line.
This is where the patron Gavin advantage.
It helps the Patriots offensive line.
Who's still figuring itself out early in the season as they're going through changes in injuries and all that kind of stuff.
Yeah, Adam Jase, who seems to have clashed with almost everybody since he's moved to New York, clash with the GM clashes with players and how he's currently clashing with their cornerback, Jermaine Johnson.
You know, Adam Case come out saying things like Johnson doesn't love football.
I'm wondering if maybe Johnson just doesn't love playing for Adam Gates and the Jets.
We don't know if Johnson's gonna play on the weekend.
He was benched against the Browns on Monday so I don't know if he's gonna play against the Patriots Sunday.
What do you got? A team that has unrest and coaches clashing with players, Just music.
Tom Brady's years fascination.
The Jets are a mess.
It really shouldn't surprise us, though.
I mean, the first mistake that the New York Jets made was hiring Adam Gates.
We all found that hilarious when they thought hiring the guy that left the Miami Dolphins an absolute mess was the guy to bring in.
They thought bringing in the coach who had a pretty decent Miami team and all he was able to do was underachieve with some pretty good players.
They thought he was the rights part for the Jets.
Oh, Mr Adam Gays.
Adam thinks he's gonna have the same success that he had when he's with the Dolphins.
This isn't the Patriots going down to Miami and playing in 110 degree weather in September.
Adam, it ain't gonna happen.
The New York Jets haven't beat the Patriots since the 2010 season, eh? Gillette Stadium.
And you'd be absolutely crazy if you think it would be any different this time.
If you know last week, he history did not repeat itself in Miami.
There was Patriot fans who were worried about going to Miami.
Crazy things happen in Miami, but I told you all the Patriots were too talented.
Miami was too awful, and it proved to be true, and the pages were down there.
They had their way with the Miami Dolphins.
History will repeat Sunday.
Gillette Stadium with a subpar team and face off against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon.
Julian Edelman and Sony.
Michelle Dont'a Hightower.
Stefan Gilmore, Kyle Vanoy, Makor Ity.
The list goes on and on and on.
You can't show up in the sub par team and expect to win.
You know, the last time they won, they won with Rex Ryan, and Rex Ryan is a better coach than Adam gazes, even though Gay seems to have a melted Bigas Rex Ryan.
You don't have a great history against the Patriots in New England, and we can expect those exact, similar results on Sunday because at the end of the day in this game, the Patriots defense has one job.
It stopped Levy on Belle.
You take away lady on Belle.
You have taken away the entire New York Jets offense, and I don't think anybody is stressing about it because the Patriots have the personnel and they have the talent to do it.
The Patriots past rushes to do is perceived that they're getting pressure to Falk and he'll crumble under pressure.
It'll be more than enough to throw him off.
Just perceived that there's a little bit of pressure collapsed the pocket a little bit.
Make him feel it coming from the outsides.
This game plan is gonna be pretty simple and pretty basic.
There's not gonna be scheming.
There's gonna be a lot of Just do your job, Stay in your positions, stay in your lanes, get a little bit of pressure and stop Levy on Belle Brady over his career, has had his way with the Jets.
He had his way with the Jets last season and demolish them each time that they played.
And that's exactly the same thing that's gonna happen this season.
I don't care who the quarterback is, who the coaches, who the quarterback is.
It doesn't matter.
It really be nice if we could see the Patriots running game really get going.
Get that offensive line some confidence as they roll on getting some big yards in the run game.
We all know what happens when Sony Michelle gets rolling.
I expect the New England Patriots to open up the playbook a little more this week.
Last week, they really they treated it exactly like a pre season game.
When I took on the Dolphins, I'm expected to see Antonio Brown keep progressing.
I'm expecting a settlement and do it. Edelman does.
I think we're going to see Maura Flash Josh Gordon this weekend.
This is gonna be another stress free game for the Patriots.
Like I literally have zero concern for this game this weekend.
All this is gonna be is another building block for the Patriots to get better.
And we've talked about. This is September.
The Patriots are still growing as a team.
They're still getting better.
There's still working towards perfection.
They're still working towards being that well oiled machine that we're so used to, and this could be one of those building blocks this weekend.
Pages facing another a f C East team, and it's another a F C East team that's just gonna fall to the hands of the Patriots, and I talked about that big spread at the beginning of my little intro there before I got into the stream and I believe big and cover the strength.
They can cover the spread.
I don't see how it's going. I don't see how they can.
The Jets defense's of shamble.
The Jets offenses and shamble there, coaching staffs and shambles.
The front office is in shambles.
The organization that was supposed to be the closest two competing with the New England Patriots, dethroning the page.
It's whatever you wanna call it, though. That crap.
Who would just enjoy the game this weekend? We're looking at other NFL news, something that was sort of notable.
Notable today was another A F C East team making a move.
The Miami Dolphins.
The low, the bottom, the dwellers of the F C East.
They claim Taco Charlton off of waivers.
Coincidentally enough, the Dolphins will be facing off against the Cowboys this weekend.
But considering that today's only Thursday, I assume that Charlton won't be ready to go and won't know anything about the Dolphins defense.
He won't be playing Brian floors is obviously trying to mimic his mentor.
He's trying to pull a Bill Bill Belichick, and find a damaged goods player in tournament of something useful finding tournament to a contributor for a team after he didn't succeed somewhere else.
Let's be honest.
Taco can't hurt Miami.
He can't make them any worse than they already are.
Although the Dolphins, what they've done is in battle, check is done This.
They brought on another draft.
Blessed back in 2017 the Cowboys used a 28th overall pick on this guy to record four sacks.
The Cowboys lost so much faith in him he was inactive for the 1st 2 games of the season, and then they were trying to find a trade partner.
But who's gonna want to trade for a guy who couldn't play the 1st 2 games of the season? So the Cowboys were forced to release him, and well, as he struggles to build an NFL career, he's not gonna go to probably the worst team in the NFL.
But the Dolphins needed to do something to help their defense.
They had to get some sort of spark.
They had to try something.
Dolphins defense giving up 102 points in two games.
I mean, it's not like their offense has done any better.
I think they've been.
I think they're offered to score like 10 points.
I think they've been outscored 100 and 2 to 10 like that's just it's pathetic to call yourself a professional football team when you're being outscored by that bad.
And basically, Miami Dolphins need to approve everything needed for their offense for special teams of defense.
I think they got the coaching to do it.
Like I said, bring in Charlton can't make things worse, very low.
No risk for the Dolphins.
It doesn't work. Then just move on.
Use their three million draft picks this year to try to get better.
Anyways, I just thought, You know, every day I try to talk about some piece of noticeable news in the NFL, and that was a notable news today.
All right, guys.
So it's that time of the day where I answer your questions that you gave me.
Thank everybody who submitted questions today.
Um, if you want to smell your questions so I can talk about it on this stream, you can send it over on Twitter or Instagram? Ah, just at me on Twitter or messaged me on Twitter on Instagram.
I put in my stories with a little question box.
You could send it to me there.
I may not answer all of your questions directly because some of them are duplicates or I've covered some of them in the I always make sure I touched upon all the subject matter that gets asked.
So I nearly down to five questions today again.
Like I said, there was.
There was some repeats of some stuff.
One of the ones was, and I probably shouldn't and just kind of talked about it.
But when the question was, why did the Cowboys cut Taco? Basically, because he's just under performed with the daily draft.
Him four sacks in two years is not could for 1/20 overall draft pick.
When you draft somebody 28th overall, you expect them to play right away.
You expect him to contribute the way we expect Sony.
Michelle Isaiah win when they kill Harry, comes back.
When you bring somebody in in the first round, you expect them to perform.
And he didn't perform for the Cowboys and the Cowboys aren't in a position where they can wait for a guy to develop.
The Cowboys were the best team in the NFC East, but they got a tough.
They got a tough team coming right behind them of the Philadelphia Eagles.
They got to make sure that they're operating at their best.
And talk with Charlton was not the best for the patriarch for the for the Cowboys.
Thanks for your question.
Where would you rank Gillette Stadium amongst the toughest places to play? I mean, it's gotta be right up there at the top, right? I know they're not sounding.
They're not setting sound records like they are in Seattle or an arrowhead.
But when you look at the Patriots record that don't have in front of me, but it's ridiculous, especially when you get into like, the December months.
It's really a fortress for the Patriots.
There's been some off years, and there's been some blips here and there.
But essentially, teams don't win at Gillette when it's a home game, I think is Patriot fans were pretty much certain that is going to be a victory, so it's got to be up there in the top three or four, right? I mean, you can have the record like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have in Gillette Stadium, and it not be at the top of that list.
Who's the biggest threat in the A F.
C? I mean, I guess to be fair, if we're gonna talk about who's the biggest threat, I mean, I think that the Patriots can beat everybody native, see? But I guess I have to say the Chiefs, they got a great offense, even score a lot of points.
The problem is when they, when they match up against the Patriots of Patriot of the defense, that can slow down the Chiefs.
I don't think you can stop the Kansas City Chiefs, but you can slow them down.
Unfortunate Chiefs, Even if they trade for Jalen Ramsey, the Chiefs don't have enough on defense to stop the Patriots.
That's the problem.
That's the problem for the Chiefs.
Baltimore's not there yet.
Baltimore's of Brink Team Baltimore's.
You think that's gonna make the playoffs? That might make a run in the playoffs or not a Super Bowl team.
Yet they're not a threat yet.
If they ever become one, they're a good team, what I wouldn't put them is the threat of the A F C.
The threat of the A F.
C, in my opinion at least, is that Ken City Chiefs if you want to ask for a threat.
But I think that the Patriots line up with almost everybody that they could line up against.
What's your favorite Patriots Jets game during the Brady Belichick era? Huh? So that was a good one.
That's a good one because it's tough to really pinpoint down a game, I guess.
I think it was in 2012 the 2012 season in 2011 season.
I can remember divisional round by the by the Jets at Gillette Stadium.
So was the next season.
Ah, and Rex Ryan was on his high horse.
They've gone to the F C championship.
He was still talking crap in the media.
He was still being Rex Ryan, and I think the Patriots beat the 49 to 10 or 49 to 17 or something like that.
That's what they beat, 49 to 19.
And, um, that was probably my favorite game.
That was the game Brady was pointing that was pointing at at Rex Ryan on the sidelines, and they were just running up the score.
And now that's probably my favorite game.
Is that Is that the Butt fumble game? I don't know if that's the body formal game, but I just remember it was just an absolute annihilation.
And that was my favorite.
Last question is, Do you think that Rex Burkhead starts over Sony Michelle because of the fumble? I do not.
I don't think that Bill Belichick.
I mean, if Rex Burkhead starts this week, it won't be because of the fumble number one.
The Patriots are always going to use their running backs in specific ways, right? They're never, you know, the running backs are never like a This is our featured back forever.
This is our other feature back forever.
They're always featured in different ways, and I don't think that just because Michelle fumbled, I mean fumbled last year, didn't lose a starting spot.
So I think that if Rex Burkhead starts, one doesn't connect with the other.
It's basically just, you know, Burke heads to featured back, probably for that quarter, because that seems to be how the Patriots do things.
I don't think that he's gonna be punished over one fumble.
I think he was benched after the fumble in Miami.
That's the way Belichick does it.
He deals with it then and then you move on, you learn from the fumble and you move on.
No, I don't s Oh, yeah.
For everybody who sent questions today again sent him to me on Twitter and Instagram.
And I will get to your questions on the stream again.
I always everybody subject matter.
I try to answer every question that I can s Oh, yes.
Oh, thank you very much for that.
And I appreciate all you guys doing that.
And I guess that we're down to our final piece of business for today.
Stream going fast tonight.
We're already at the 20 minute mark.
Ah, look as Patriot fans, we've always said that everybody wants to play for New England, right? We always like you wanna win a ring, take a pay cut, come to New England.
It turns out that we weren't that wrong.
Turns out that we're not being super arrogant.
At the very least, their agents want them to end up in New England.
Yes, we do it all the time.
We believed that team players will take pay cuts just to join the Patriots, and we've seen it happen.
The most current example is Antonio Brown.
Remember back Chris Long approached the Patriots for the 2016 season.
He approached the Patriots.
He offered to take the veteran's minimum because Chris Long knew that going to the Patriots was his best place in his best chance to win a Super Bowl.
Pay people players come to the Patriots toe win toe win rings, and then they win their ring and then they jump ship for more money.
Darrelle Revis, Tramp Brown, Brandon Browner, Martellus Bennett.
I've accepted as a Patriot fan.
That's what's gonna happen as long as they contribute to the team. Other here.
That's all that look.
Martellus Bennett said it perfect after Super Bowl, 31 teams overpaid for Super Bowl champions except Bill Bocek.
Bill Belichick does not ever pay for Super Bowl champions, but every other team does and obviously agency it, too.
So the athletic, which is becoming one of my more preferred publications lately Ah pulled agents asking them what was the most desirable team for your client to sign with, and the Patriots ranked number one as the most desired teams.
Now the survey was actually specifically about college players going to the NFL, but I'm sure it's exactly offering a more money.
But he wanted to work with Dante Scarnecchia.
He wanted to play for befell, attacking the Patriots.
Improving himself was a player.
His best chance of winning a championship was in New England, you know, And there's the reason is that the agents want ER, their HQ wants to sign with the painters.
They differ once said that, you know Kid will win a Super Bowl.
The it seems like the obvious, you know, Um, but you know, rings don't guarantee.
If you come with a ring with the pages, go sign somewhere else.
You could look awful.
Danny Mandala, another agent, said that they want young players to go because of the established culture.
Teach young players how to be a pro, regardless of why, regardless of the decision, it's tough to see no to the Patriots.
That's why I think his fans were shocked when we hear players actually chose not to sign for the Patriots, especially when the same money was being offered.
Like Adam Humphreys in the off season, Humphries chose to go play for the Tennessee Titans of the New England Patriots.
Now what if his first reason came out? It made sense to me.
I thought he was a good kid.
He'd already committed to the Titans by the time the pages came in with more money that I remain my commitment. I didn't want to jump.
Good. You're not fine.
But then he starts giving these insane reasons like he wanted to play for Marcus Mariota over Tom Brady.
Now I think he was trying to say it was about age and whatever.
Who the hell who in their right mind would want to play with Marriott over Tom Brady? I wish the Patriots were playing the Titans this year so Mr Humphries could see what he's missing because the Titans bandwagon after last Sunday, just the wheel collapsed.
You know, he's just a kid.
He doesn't get it, whatever again.
Besides a few cases like that, New England is probably the most desirable place to play.
And despite the stupid rumors going around that this is the no fun zone in New England.
I don't know the ring ceremonies that Robert Kraft puts on.
It seems, you know, annually.
They seem pretty fun.
Riel competitors, riel, professional football players like Michael Bennett.
They respect the New England pages.
They respect and relished the opportunity to play in New England.
And, really, who wouldn't want to play with two goats? You got the greatest of all time playing quarterback and Tom Brady.
You got the greatest of all time coaching and Bill Belichick.
And really, you could consider the Patriots having four goats when you add.
Josh McDaniels is probably the greatest offensive coordinator and Dante Scarnecchia as the greatest offensive line coach.
Here's a great quote from an agent, he says.
Good place to start a kid's career off.
They've established the culture and they teach you how to be a pro.
How to practice.
They give you enough room to be yourself, but the culture creates certain helpful boundaries.
No one holds their players more accountable.
So despite Lane Johnson and his ridiculous take on a locker room that he's never been near and never invited into and one where he'll probably never be welcome.
Smart people who actually understand the advantage of plane for Bill Belichick.
Well, I always say things differently, and it's I'm not saying it's easy to be a New England patriot.
That's a high tower gets quoted in the media all the time, especially coming from Alabama.
That guy's had to play for Nick Saban and Bill Belichick.
Those are two coaches that grind their players, those Air two coaches that expect perfection out of their team and you can try to bash their culture.
You can say they're no fun.
You can say that. Their dictators.
You can say whatever you want about Alabama and the Patriots culture, but end results don't lie.
When you play for Nick Saban or you play for Bill Belichick, your opportunity to win a championship increases dramatically, and it it has to to be a New England patriot, you have to perform as a football player.
Hey, they're the best team in football, but they run a tight ship, a tough ship.
You have to do what's going on at times getting inside in the contracts and is challenging.
But you also have to contribute immediately or you get on the bad side of Bill Belichick.
End quote his balance.
Check expecting his players to perform as balance.
Check expecting his players to perform immediately.
A bad thing because we expected his fans.
I never hear Patriot fans saying Let him develop.
Let him develop.
Let him develop No Patriot fans want guys to perform immediately.
So why wouldn't the coach? This isn't Pop Warner football.
This isn't high school football.
No, this isn't some recreational league where there's fairplay time.
This is professional football, and when you play or you coach and you're a professional being a professional, your end goal is to win a championship.
So, yeah, it's tough.
Expects you to act like a champion in this dynasty.
Does end, and we don't know what that's gonna be.
We don't know if that's going to next season.
10 years from now, we don't know when this is going to be over, but when this dynasty ends, no team will ever replicate what the Patriots have done over the last 20 years, and there's only now a select few players who will have the honor to say they were there when the Patriots were historical guys like Lane Johnson, who I want a player like him.
Anyways, Bill Belichick has no time.
It is not gonna accept complacency from anybody.
If you're a player and you're drafted or you sign as a free agent with the New England Patriots, you have to prepare to work.
And you also have to prepare to win.
