  Jaguars | Make roster moves    Tue May 14, 04:50 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars claimed DL Brandon Deaderick (Patriots) off waivers from New England Patriots and waived WR Cole McKenzie Tuesday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Deaderick is your classic run stuffer but provides little as a pass rusher. He gives the Jaguars more veteran depth (and versatility) as they continue to re-shuffle their front seven on defense.

  Patriots | Made change to defense    Tue Dec 20, 03:12 PM

The New England Patriots, head coach Bill Belichick and assistant coach Matt Patricia changed their 3-4 defense around a bit during the Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos. 'I think you can get into a lot of technical aspects of defense and strategy and all that, but we played plenty of four-man line, we played plenty of three-man line,' Belichick said. 'We used them both at different times for different reasons. In the end, it comes back to the players - beating blocks, making tackles, hitting the quarterback, covering the receivers. I think there's a lot more to that than there is to odd or even.' The Pats set the edge with bigger players like DLs Vince Wilfork and Brandon Deaderick.

Footballguys view: The Pats also went blindly after Tebow and it payed off. Most teams when playing the read/option will have the edge defender wait and not bite on either the quarterback or the pitch man. The Patriots just went straight for Tebow and caused the young QB to cough up one fumble because of it. Their pass rush was relentless all day. Then in the fourth quarter (Tebow time) they did not back off. They stayed aggressive the entire day and it payed off.
