Familiar issues, but no panic for Patriots after 1-2 start

(AP Photo/Paul Sancya)BOSTON — Two weeks, two head-shaking losses by the New England Patriots.In Week 2, the Patriots’ defense was deficient in a 31-20 loss to Jacksonville in which the Patriots were victimized on third down.ADVERTISEMENT There were problems all over the field in Sunday’s stunning 26-10 loss at Detroit, though it was Tom Brady and the Patriots offense that struggled the most against a defense coached by former Patriots defensive coordinator and new Lions head coach Matt Patricia.It’s left New England at 1-2 for the first time since 2012.

He also had a costly interception midway through the fourth quarter that helped the Lions seal the victory.The 133 passing yards for Brady were his fewest in a game since he went 8 of 16 for 80 yards against Buffalo on Dec. 28, 2014.What’s more troubling, though, is an offense that over the past two weeks has gone 6 of 21 on third down.“We’re not scoring enough points. We’re not executing well enough on a down-by-down basis. Certainly, at a high level, we should have our expectations set in,” Brady said.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READ Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “The process has been the same, there’s been a lot of talk about it in practice, and we’re going through it and watching the film and correcting stuff, it’s just not getting done on the field. And we have to get it corrected soon.”One common theme in the way the Jaguars and Lions succeeded in limiting the Patriots offensively, was keying on tight end Rob Gronkowski. One of Brady’s favorite options, Gronk has just 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown this season.He hasn’t scored in either of the two losses, hauling in only six total receptions.But Gronkowski said no one inside the Patriots’ locker room is panicking about starting 1-2.“I mean, it’s early, it’s football and it’s the NFL,” he said. “Some crazy things happen every single week and we’ve just got to bounce back. We can’t put our heads down, we have to keep them up. We’ve got to keep on fighting and there’s another week next week.”“We’ve got a big division game next week versus Miami.

Region 2 RDC to investigate sale of ‘unserviceable’ items

first_imgBy Indrawattie NatramThe Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) Regional Democratic Council (RDC) will be launching an investigation into the sale of serviceable items that are being resold as unserviceable. The matter was discussed in detail at the recent statutory meeting in which Councillors – particularly from the Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) – spoke out about the corruption and malpractices that are currently ongoing in relation to the sale of “useless” items from the regional administration.The discussion arose after the Regional Vice Chairwoman Nandranie Coonjah told the RDC that two canter loads of material were removed from the compound without her knowledge. Coonjah said upon inquiring, she was presented with a letter which showed that the materials were being sold at a minimum cost of $4500. She went on to say that she was very surprised at such a discovery, as the materials are worth over $400,000.According to her, the letter was signed by the Regional Executive Officer (REO) Rupert Hopkinson. Coonjah said on another instance,Region Two Chairman Devanand Ramdatt and REO Rupert Hopkinsonrollers that were in good working condition were resold as unserviceable. She then questioned what measure was being used to prove that the items are indeed unserviceable.Coonjah also alleged that the sale of the items is only to a particular group of persons.Government Councillor Naithram, during the discussion also noted that several used tyres were resold at a cheap cost and upon inspection; the tyres could have been used for another six months.Head of the RDC, Region Two Chairman Devanand Ramdatt, said the practices were illegal and the RDC will take appropriate action. He said once an application is made from the public for the purchase of the items, then the stock verifier needs to examine the items properly, as well as the quantum. Ramdatt said the present RDC will not condone any corruption or malpractices, and as such, will investigate the matter.In response, the region’s REO Rupert Hopkinson said once the stock verifier says the items are unserviceable, he just signs off. He also said that he does not have the time to inspect everything that leaves the RDC compound, as he is busy with his own job and there are people paid in the system to do it. Hopkinson also said if the RDC needs to investigate corruption, then the Police should be called upon to lend their expertise as it relates to crime fighting investigations.He further explained that the stock verifier would often recommend a price that the items should be resold at, and once that is confirmed, he just applies his signature.At that point, Regional Chairman Ramdatt told the REO that he is the accounting officer for the region, and as such, he should be accountable. Ramdatt also asked Hopkinson to write the stock verifier requesting an explanation in relation to the low price attached to the materials that were sold and based on the response, the RDC will take corrective measures.Ramdatt also told the REO that as the accounting officer for the region, his work should not only be limited to office and the field, but he should have adequate knowledge about everything he affixes his signature to.The Regional Chairman also stated that the stock verifier has no authority to approve, adding that that responsibility lies with the REO. Therefore, the REO should be more responsible when signing for the sale of items from the Region Two administration.last_img read more

Assault charges recommended for Broomes’ son, girlfriend

first_img…Police deny ministerial interferenceRanks investigating reports of assault involving a Government Minister’s son and his girlfriend were advised to file charges against the two.Last Saturday, Hector Broomes and his girlfriend, Gilibeth Rodriguez, got into an altercation during which they allegedly assaulted each other.According to Guyana Police Force Public Relations Officer, Senior Superintendent Jairam Ramlakhan, following “thorough” investigations against both parties after the matter was reported, legal advice was obtained.It was recommended that both parties be charged under the Summary JurisdictionHector Broomes(Offences) Act Chapter 8:02.Broomes was slapped with one count of assault causing actual bodily harm, while Rodriguez will face two counts: one for assault and the other for throwing missiles. The Police said that they would appear in court at the “soonest” time possible.Meanwhile, the Force also took the opportunity to further “vehemently” deny reports that of F Division (Interior Locations) Commander Kevin Adonis was ordered by Minister Simona Broomes to release her son after he was arrested.A local online news entity reported on Monday that the Minister had threatened the Commander to have him fired if he did not keep the matter quiet. However, Adonis dismissed the report when the Guyana Times contacted him on Tuesday last.“Nothing of the sort [happened], it is contrary to what happened,” the Commander told this publication.last_img read more

Blackburn 0-0 Nottingham Forest: Alan Shearer unable to inspire goals at Ewood Park

first_img1 Paul Lambert The presence of Alan Shearer could not inspire Blackburn and Nottingham Forest as they played out a goalless draw at Ewood Park.Shearer was back in east Lancashire to officially unveil ‘Alan Shearer Way’ near the ground on Monday as the club remembered the striker whose 34 league goals delivered the Premiership title to their trophy cabinet 20 years ago.In the following campaign he scored a hat-trick against Forest as Blackburn won 7-0 in the first game to be played at the rebuilt Ewood Park, yet it was a dull stalemate that marked this anniversary and Shearer’s return to his old stomping ground.Bengali-Fode Koita headed a second-half opportunity that Shearer would surely have stuck away straight at goalkeeper Dorus De Vries, while Matt Mills’ stoppage-time try at the other end was pushed on to the woodwork by Jason Steele. Shearer had addressed the home crowd on the pitch before kick-off and told them that he hoped it would not be long before they were back in the top flight, and a win over Forest, without an away win since September, would have taken them to within one point of the play-off places.That was due to the fine start Paul Lambert had made in the dugout having taken 10 points from his first four games in charge since arriving last month as Gary Bowyer’s successor.He saw his team dominate territorially in the first period, yet a flurry of early headers were the best they had to show for their efforts as Shane Duffy nodded straight at De Vries and Jordan Rhodes glanced wide at the near post from Craig Conway’s right-wing cross.A foray down the other side almost brought the opener as Markus Olsson ploughed on and the ball found its way to Ben Marshall, whose half-volley looped off Mills’ leg and hit the underside of the crossbar behind De Vries.The hosts failed to build on their control of the game and in the second period both Henri Lansbury and Jamie Ward fired in shots that Blackburn keeper Steele had to save down low.However, it was Koita who really should have made the breakthrough with 18 minutes remaining.Substitute Corry Evans twisted and turned on the right-hand side and delivered a fine ball to the six-yard box where an unmarked Koita glanced straight into De Vries’ gloves.That miss almost proved even more costly in the eight minutes of stoppage time when Mills’ header was superbly tipped on to the post by Steele as Lambert’s unbeaten start as boss was preserved.last_img read more

SINN FEIN SPOKESMAN ON JOBS, ENTERPRISE AND INNOVATION TO VISIT DONEGAL

first_imgSinn Féin Spokesperson on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Peadar Toibin, TD will be in Donegal this Monday 19th November for a series of meetings across the county.Deputy Toibin is to hear at first hand the challenges local businesses and the unemployed face and to discuss Sinn Féin’s recently-launched Jobs Plan.He will also witness at first hand some positive examples of enterprise and innovation in the county that gives hope in these difficult times. Speaking ahead of the visit, Deputy Toibin said “In the last four years Ireland has shed more jobs than any other western state per capita since the Great Depression”.“Sinn Féin has identified €13billion which can be used to create jobs, increase productivity and improve competiveness. This money would be sourced from the European Investment Bank, incentivised investment from the private pension sector and the National Pension Reserve Fund.“Investment on this scale would retain 15,000 jobs and create about 156,000 jobs.“In Donegal we would create jobs by proceeding with the A5 Dublin-Derry dual carriageway which would greatly improve the Northwest’s appeal to foreign investors. We would also invest in new schools and primary care centres. “Donegal would also benefit from a new emphasis on agri-food and seafood sectors as well as sustainable tourism.“As an opposition party we will be pushing the government to adopt these proposals to reverse the spiraling unemployment and emigration that has plagued this county for years.”SINN FEIN SPOKESMAN ON JOBS, ENTERPRISE AND INNOVATION TO VISIT DONEGAL was last modified: November 16th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal visitPeadar ToibinSinn Feinlast_img read more

South El Monte rallies for win

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Junior running back Daniel Bernal was the top gun for the Wildcats, scoring three touchdowns, as they jumped to a 28-14 lead at the end of the first half. Bernal scored on rushing, pass receiving and on a 90-yard kickoff return following the Eagles first touchdown. He rushed for 121 yards on 18 carries and caught three passes from quarterback Israel Suasto for 93 yards in the first half. He left the game in the third quarter after being injured at the end of a run to the Eagles 3-yard line. The Wildcats, leading 21-0, drove to the Eagles 13 and were ready to kick a field goal to extend their lead. Senior Lee Aguirre blocked the attempt and Daniel Romero scooped up the loose ball and took it 80 yards for the score. The Eagles took their only lead of the game with 1:54 left when Jose Talavara blasted into the end zone on a 3-yard run. The two high scoring teams were each averaging more than 36 points a game entering the contest. HACIENDA HEIGHTS — Fans wanting to see a shootout between the Wilson High School and South El Monte High School football teams got more than they bargained for Friday night. South El Monte fell behind 21-0 at the end of the first quarter but outscored the Wildcats 34-14 in the second half to pull out a 48-42 win in the final nonleague game before starting league play next week. center_img The Eagles seemed to settle down after Bernal’s long kickoff return and took advantage of a huge pass interference penalty to move the ball into Wildcats territory. Aguirre scrambled for a 25-yard touchdown and the Eagles were back in the game, 28-14, at the half. “He’s (Aguirre) really not a quarterback,’ Eagles coach Erick Escamilla said. “He’s a quarterback with a linebacker mentality.’ The Eagles looked flat the first half, but a kickoff return by Tommy Cogburn to start the second half seemed to spark his teammates. “That got us going,’ Escamilla said. “Our offense was flat and we didn’t do our job on defense and our special teams gave up plays.’ Aguirre ran 26 yards for a score and passed for another. Only a blocked extra point kept the Eagles from tying the score at 28. “They have a fabulous offense,’ Wildcats coach Robert Oviedo said. “With that kind of speed on the other side of the ball you want your best players out there. I take full responsibility for not putting our players in position to win.’ The Wildcats widened their lead to 42-27 after Keith Gonzales picked up a fumble and raced 60 yards for the touchdown. Aguirre passed for two touchdowns before Talavara punched in the winning score. Aguirre led the Eagles with 175 yards rushing and he passed for 191 more. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Man who boasted he lost Gardai at 179kph is jailed for 20 months

first_imgA man who drove at speeds of up to 179kph and then boasted to Garda that they could not catch him has been jailed for 20 months and banned from driving for 10 years.Shane Gibson appeared before Letterkenny District Court yesterday charged with more than 30 offences over a two year period.When arrested by Gardai in September last, there were more than 20 bench warrants out for Gibson’s arrest. Gibson, 29, a father of two of Carra Bay, Culdaff with a previous address in Creeslough, faced charges including dangerous driving, no insurance, no tax, no driving license and no NCT certificate.The court heard how Gibson had tried to escape from Gardai during several pursuits on different dates.On a number of occasions he overtook cars on continuous white lines, went the wrong way around roundabouts and drove erratically around blind bends.Garda Marcus O’Dowd gave evidence of one pursuit in which Gibson was spotted driving dangerously on six different occasions during a pursuit from Letterkenny and across the border into Derry on September 15th last. The court was told how Gibson drove his black Vauxhall Astra car at horrific speeds out of sight of Gardai as they tried to keep up with him.Garda O’Dowd said that when Gibson was arrested a week later, he bragged about how he was able to get away from Gardai.Evidence of other serious pursuits were also given to the court.Gibson’s solicitor Donagh Cleary told the court that the death of a baby two years ago had undoubtedly been a catalyst for his client’s behaviour.He said Gibson admitted to having a problem with alcohol and his behaviour was almost designed to get himself caught. Gibson, who had 12 previous convictions for a range of offences including burglary, theft, trespassing, no insurance and public order, had inherited a farm of 40 acres from his late grandfather.Judge Paul Kelly went through all the charges and took some into consideration and dismissed others.He sentenced Gibson to a total of 20 months and backdated to September 26th last, the date in which he went into custody.He also banned him from driving for ten years.
