Since coming out of his team’s week 11 bye Houston Texans Customized Jerseys , the New England Patriots’ quarterback has completed 71 of his 106 pass attempts (67.0%) for 952 yards, six touchdowns and only one interception. Over the last six games, he has again looked like the NFL’s best quarterback — all after “only” looking like one of the best through the first 10 games.The question if the Brady of 2018 is the same Brady as the one that dominated the league over the past few years — one that won two Super Bowls, two Super Bowl MVPs and one league MVP between 2014 and 2017 — has been a prominently discussed this season. The best of those discussions was published by Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne yesterday. Tyler spoke with an eight-man panel about the 41-year old’s performance this season.The remarks made by one man in particular are noteworthy: Tom House, Brady’s personal quarterback guru of the last seven years and one of only two men (the other being the late Tom Martinez) to work in this role with the future Hall of Famer. According to House, the 18-year veteran is still in peak physical condition — possibly even more so than when he started working with him in 2012.“I actually think he’s a better quarterback now than 10 years ago,”House told Tyler. “Because in his head, he has 10 years of experience and his body has maintained. He’s as good or better physically as he was 10 years ago. [...] This is my seventh year with him and I haven’t seen any skill diminishing anywhere. He’s the same guy with more experience, more knowledge, and basically he is kind of like a coach unto himself.”“He has all that experience, all that knowledge and the ability to go out and recall it in competition, and he’s kept his physical tools also,” House continued. Brady’s work ethic has long been documented and is a big reason for his maintained success a starting quarterback in the NFL — one that is still going strong and being motivated despite already having won everything there is to win.“His expectation level is pretty intense,” House told Tyler about his superstar pupil when speaking about Brady’s preparation and the driving forces behind him still trying to improve his craft. “He loves the game. His passion for football is like other elite athletes that play into their late 30s and early 40s Houston Texans T-Shirts , like Nolan Ryan coming to the ballpark. You just love the game. It’s part of their fabric.”Despite Brady putting in all the work, House knows that the aging process in unforgiving. However, he also noted that players — in this case Brady — can maintain their level of play deep into their 40s. “Research says there’s no reason you can’t do at 45 what you did at 25 if your process will support it,” House said. “What I’ve seen, and what we’re researching, is that strength usually isn’t the problem. They can maintain strength into their 50s.”“But flexibility and speed — the nervous system — they need to be addressed a little bit differently,” the mechanics coach continued before noting that he, Brady and the quarterback’s personal body guru, Alex Guerrero, break meticulously break down the five-time Super Bowl winner. Nerves, muscles and connective tissue get tracked in order to analyze Brady’s body movements and work on them.Make sure to check Tyler’s story about Brady out — it is worth your click. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Blake Bortles is no longer Jacksonville’s starting quarterback.Whether he regains the job in the next week is anybody’s guess.Bortles fumbled on the team’s third play of each half, leading to 10 points and his benching in a 20-7 loss to AFC South rival Houston on Sunday.Coach Doug Marrone yanked Bortles after the second turnover — his eighth in three games — and gave former Cleveland starter Cody Kessler a shot.Marrone gave no indication afterward if Bortles or Kessler would be under center when the reeling Jaguars (3-4) play a “home game” against Philadelphia (3-4) in London next week.“It’s open,” Marrone said. “Who’s the starter at right tackle? Who’s the starter at center? Who’s the starter at receiver? Who’s the starter? Everything is open. We’ve lost three straight games and we can’t stop shooting ourselves in the foot for lack of a better expression. … We’ve got to do something , but the first thing we’ve got to do is stop turning the damn ball over. Period. That would be the positive of how we can build.”Jacksonville’s third consecutive lopsided loss triggered quarterback indecision and heated commotion .When the locker room doors opened for media members, Calais Campbell could be seen holding back fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. It was carry-over from an emotional postgame that included screaming, shouting and finger pointing.“You all walk in here, you all see how it is in here, you all see how we vibe with each other, you all see how we vibe toward the coaches, you all see how it is,” cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. “It is no secret what’s going on here right now. Ain’t nobody going to say it because we can’t. But it ain’t no secret what’s going on and it ain’t right right now.”Ngakoue declined comment, as did safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback A.J. Bouye.Their silence spoke volumes for a team that appears to be in upheaval — a huge fall after starting the season with Super Bowl expectations.“I don’t speak on locker room business,” linebacker Telvin Smith said. “Don’t ask me locker room questions.”Not everyone ducked the obvious.“Be frustrated. Be frustrated all week. Change something,” defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “Change something you need to do. We need to look ourselves in the mirror and just fix it. I can’t sit here and tell you what we need to fix, what we need to do, what needs to be done. I don’t know. I just know that we need to be where we’re supposed to be and just . something needs to change.”The Texans (4-3) don’t need to change anything after a fourth consecutive victory gave them a one-game lead in the division.Deshaun Watson threw for a touchdown after making the 800-mile trip to Jacksonville on a private bus to avoid potential problems that flying and cabin pressure might pose to his bruised lung and injured ribs. Lamar Miller ran for 100 yards and a score . And the defense did the rest, forcing three turnovers and sacking Kessler four times.Houston hosts Miami (4-3) on Thursday night.“We were down and out and everybody was counting us out Houston Texans Hoodie ,” Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus said. “The thing is, we have guys on this team who understand that early on it doesn’t matter. We just put our heads down and kept working and now we have to continue to do the same thing.”Here are some other things we learned about the Texans and Jaguars:HAL STARTSTexans safety Andre Hal, who returned to practice this week following treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, was in the starting lineup. Hal was diagnosed with the disease in May and immediately began treatment. He received the news of his remission last month. The game was emotional because his father, Andre Hal Sr., died Tuesday, a few days suffering a heart attack.“This was good for my dad,” Hal said. “He wanted me back on the field and I know he was watching me there today. … People didn’t really think I’d come back, but I knew I would come back. It was cool seeing everyone kind of show some love to me.”ONE-HANDED CATCHDeAndre Hopkins won several one-on-one matchups against Ramsey. His best was a one-handed catch for 31 yards along the sideline in the first quarter.“That catch at the beginning of the game really got us going,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “He made some big plays for us. That’s Hop.”ANOTHER SHUTOUTThe Jaguars failed to score in the first half for the third straight week, the first time they’ve done that in franchise history. They have been outscored 57-0 in the opening two quarters in losses to Kansas City, Dallas and Houston.
