World News – GB – 49ers look like Patriots’ dream scenario as Newton crumbles: (10 things we learned)


Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t perfect, but put the team in a position to win There is an exciting young tight end playing The team made some draft picks over wide receivers The defense has a few injuries, but adopts the ‘next man’ mentality But more than anything, they run the ball well behind a punishing full-back

This paragraph currently describes the San Francisco 49ers.This is the kind of description any number of fans would have liked to apply to the post-Tom Brady Patriots in New England

Meanwhile, any description of how the Patriots now look would likely involve a lot of yelling, swearing and half-drunk Dunkin iced coffees thrown at the wall

There’s really no getting around it The Patriots blew themselves up on Sunday at home by the 49ers In attack and defense, San Francisco has been consistent, dominant and fundamentally superior through every phase of the game.

This is the kind of beat we saw the Patriots put on the Bills and Jets many times in the Belichick-Brady era

But Brady doesn’t come through that door and Newton looked ghastly on the pitch Meanwhile, Belichick’s signature defense was battered by the Super Bowl LI scabbard (Kyle Shanahan), Brady’s former successor (Jimmy Garoppolo), the next generations Rob Gronkowski (George Kittle) and for good measure a fullback who went to Harvard (Kyle Juszczyk)

There was a point in the first few weeks of the season when it looked like the Patriots had clinched gold with the Newton deal They had some awesome running play Newton showed he could pitch it against the Seattle Seahawks Heck, we already wondered if it would be a good idea to sign him for an extension

Now, following Newton’s return from the Reserve / COVID-19 roster, the Patriots’ attack has been a quagmire There are plenty of reasons for this: mix of O lines, struggling receivers, disappointing tight ends

But there’s really no getting around the fact that Newton struggled – Sunday’s outing being the low point of his New England time

Newton was bad right out of the gate on Sunday By the time he missed a wide-open Damiere Byrd knocking him over several feet, it was obvious Newton didn’t have it

It wasn’t just the precision, it was an improper decision-making Newton made another late bonehead pass on a scrambling game, trying to return a ball to a catcher rather than running it Again, this resulted in a choice

Newton’s third interception of the match fell out of the hands of Julian Edelman (which we have already seen) But by then the damage was done and Jarrett Stidham was ready to enter

The decision that had the biggest negative impact for the Patriots Sunday was not one of Newton’s interceptions. It was on a game where the ball fell incomplete

The game in question was a third attempt in the first quarter where Newton targeted N’Keal Harry in the middle.Not only was Harry running out of sticks with no real chance of converting a first down, he also found himself in two 49ers defenders

The end result: Harry blew himself up, dropped the bullet, and ended up being sent into a concussion protocol

It’s no surprise some fans on social media are turning on a quarterback But when former Patriots quarterback and radio color commentator Scott Zolak jumps on the bandwagon before halftime, you know things are bad

From @ESPNStatsInfo: The 49ers totaled 301 yards in 1st half This is the most the Patriots have allowed at home in the 1st half under Bill Belichick (2000-present)

While most of the attention after this game will be on the Patriots’ struggles in attack, the defense should not be left out. They stank

The 49ers came to Gillette Stadium and took the kind of offense a lot of people thought the Patriots were going to run this year: a lot of running, a lot of movement, a lot of changes, getting the ball to the young pointers. game

With Garoppolo pulling the strings, the 49ers moved the ball methodically and physically Not so long ago this Patriots defense looked legitimate Now, not so much

If you want a stat to show how the 49ers dominated the clock and consistently moved the ball, let’s go

6 The 49ers really make the Patriots feel like the Harry’s choice

While there is still time for Harry to bounce back in his career, the 2019 first-round pick has had a rocky start to his career Meanwhile, there are two young receivers in San Francisco who look like the type of player the Patriots wish they had.

Deebo Samuel followed a rookie season with a strong sophomore campaign and a solid outing at Foxborough He was drafted No 36 overall in 2019 – four picks after Harry

Meanwhile, there’s rookie Brandon Aiyuk, who so far seems to be one step ahead of Harry at all times as a rookie – and is what Harry is doing now

Aiyuk played alongside Harry at Arizona State and left the board two picks after the Patriots’ initial place at No 23 overall

Several factors have slowed Harry’s development in the NFL But given what the 49ers have in their young receivers, it must be hard for Patriots fans not to be a little jealous

If you were watching the CBS show, you probably noticed that Jim Nantz and Tony Romo mentioned that it was « National Tight End’s Day », as George Kittle has dubbed it

It was a bit funny at first The joke got tired after the first five minutes of the match

Unfortunately for Patriots fans watching, Kittle started early and often, even beating Stephon Gilmore on the cover that day

At the end of the first quarter, we saw a glimpse of what the Patriots’ offense might look like with Newton at the helm The team moved on to a quick, loose approach that made a great use of Newton’s mobility The team faked away sweeps towards the running back with Newton guarding the ball and rushing down the middle

If the Patriots can block those plays and then execute a play-action pass, it’s a dangerous ploy to throw at teams

The Patriots took out Newton for their young alternate quarterback, but didn’t get much out of him.They also got another turnout, with Stidham throwing in a pick on his third attempt

The Patriots would have loved Stidham as a player, however, he really needs to start taking care of the ball if he is to be more on the pitch

A small detail of the game that stood out: Chase Winovich gets chewed by Belichick on the sidelines

Early on, when the Patriots were still in the game, the Patriots made the most of Garoppolo when Devin McCourty offered a deep interception

But after the game, the Patriots got hit for a personal foul on Winovich The crime? Block Garoppolo well away from the game

NFL officials monitor quarterback after interceptions to ensure defenders don’t throw low blows at them in the form of blocks away from play

Did Winovich take a cheap photo? Not really Garoppolo maybe collapsed a little while falling? It doesn’t matter Winovich gave at least one push and got the penalty
