One of a kind: Patriot teammates say Trey Flowers is a rare talent
PFF. Ndamukong Suh (one pressure every 17 snaps), Leonard Williams (16) and Calais Campbell (15) -- all of whom do the majority of their pass-rushing from the interior -- are in a similar range.
Flowers isn't the full-time force those players are, yet the point remains: When he's out there, he's a problem."I think sometimes it takes stats for people that are just kind of watching to wake up to somebody's abilities," Long said. "Now he's got the production to kind of validate what's easy for guys to see that work with him everyday, which is his really unique skill set, great work ethic and really good production.
"To be rushing from the inside like that and have those numbers, I mean, look around the league. That's tough to come by."
'I SAID: THIS GUY'S GOT SOME TOOLS'
Flowers played in just one regular-season game as a rookie before going on season-ending IR with a shoulder injury. Until this season, he was mostly known for being the guy who admitted he fell in love with football by watching Adam Sandler's character in the movie Waterboy.
But Flowers' talent was evident to some well before he had an opportunity to contribute in regular-season action. It didn't take much.
In the first quarter of his first preseason game as a pro, Flowers worked off the right edge, slapped down the hands of Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari -- who was recently named a Second-Team All-Pro -- and smothered Aaron Rodgers for a sack.
The play still sticks out to veteran defensive end Rob Ninkovich.
"I think that when you've been around football for many, many years you can just see things that certain guys are able to do," Ninkovich said. "And you can kind of quickly analyze, 'Oh this guy's got some skills that are really going to help him.' . . .
"The first few days I was around him, I said, 'This guy's got some tools. He's going to be a good player.' On top of that, his work ethic and the way he comes into work everyday, that helps guys that have some skill set to let that continue to grow and get better and better."
Flowers didn't see a great deal of time on the interior in college, but the Patriots saw him rush from the inside in a win over Louisiana State in 2014 when he picked up a sack while lined up over the right guard.
Intrigued, at Patriots rookie minicamp last year the coaching staff tried him on the inside and he embraced it. He stayed late at practice. He tried to carry out every instruction he received from defensive line coach Brendan Daly.
"They put me in positions," Flowers said, "where I could get experience with that. Get the feel of the game. Try to understand it and create an arsenal of moves."
After more than a year of sharpening his skills, Flowers has had the opportunity to put his full repertoire of inside moves on display.
Against the Broncos in Week 15, Flowers lined up as a nose tackle on center Matt Paradis. On the snap, Flowers got his hands into Paradis' chest and ripped Paradis forward.
"We call him 'Technique' for a reason," Branch said.

A Dream World at the Kent Museum
Watercolors by Julia Zanes
The Kent Museum, a row of connected 1830s structures built by Abdiel Kent in Calais, is open to the public only about one month a year. The occasion is Art at the Kent, an annual show of Vermont artists' work curated by Allyson Evans, Nel Emlen and state curator David Schutz.
The current show, which opened last weekend, aims to make of the former stagecoach stop and country store a kind of dream world. Called "Parables," the exhibit features paintings and sculptures fashioned from gourds and other materials, plus marionettes and a folding stage, all made by the Brattleboro couple Julia Zanes and Donald Saaf.
Visitors who venture to the tiny unincorporated community will first see two giant bird's nests. Positioned on the lawn in front of and behind the buildings, they were built from tree branches and hay by schoolchildren under Zanes and Saaf's guidance. The project makes sense in light of the art inside, which, at the time of Seven Days' visit, Evans and Emlen were still hanging.

Beaulieu-sur-Mer: A Secret Hideaway on the Riviera
This is no coincidence. Ever since the 1880s, when the Calais-Mediterranean Express and luxurious Wagons-Lits connected Nice with Europe, Beaulieu became one of the most favoured destinations for European crowned heads and aristocrats. The most notorious was Leopold II, King of the Belgians, who bought up an enormous chunk of land in the wooded hills overlooking the bay of Villefranche – now known as the celebrated Villa Leopolda estate, whose colourful history includes a failed attempt by a Russian oligarch to acquire the villa for £392 million in 2008. Back in 1898, there were no fewer than 82 hotels in Beaulieu. Today, a handful of those elegant winter palaces – The Hôtel des Anglais and Le Bristol – are still standing and have since been divided into residential apartments.

In 1896, Beaulieu also became the winter home of Gustav Eiffel, who left his mark on the village. He designed both the seafront Casino – recently restored to its former glory – and the angel-adorned stucco wedding-cake Rotonde, now used for private receptions. When he wasn’t organising fencing or horseback-riding matches, the famed architectural engineer – who was also a meteorologist – conducted experiments on the climate in his villa, proving that Beaulieu’s winter temperatures were consistently seven degrees hi...May 3, 2016
Quadruple Dutch: Windmills, waterways, tulips and cheese
Dutch gin (40% proof).
Holland can be reached by either rail or air, but here is an alternative for avoiding possible disruption at Calais and Brussels or a total of six hours’ waiting, due to security, flying between London and Schiphol.
Virgin East Coast trains from London (King’s Cross) take about 2½ hours to Hull where a luxurious P&O car-ferry with 546 cabins, goes overnight to Europoort. The Pride of Hull and Pride of Rotterdam each has three bars and three restaurants as well as two cinemas and shops.
There are transfers into Rotterdam or northward to Amsterdam, and P&O even offers a £79 mini-cruise that allows a full day ashore, ample time to see Keukenhof or Schiedam. In fact, one could just about visit the latter as well as see the 19 windmills that drained the polder of Kinderdijk on the other side of Rotterdam.
For stays of at least three nights, choose one of Vakantiepark Koningshof’s three enclosed sites in Katwijk and Rijnsburg that include holiday chalets, caravan parking and camp-pitches. The facilities include launderettes, showers, swimming-baths and supermarkets (stocking cheese from nearby Gouda) as well as bars, takeaways, restaurants, TV, wifi, entertainment and excursions to Delft and Amsterdam.
Tennis and swimming, fishing and cycling are also available. The owner, Philip Kromhout, says that Australian back-packers also use the huts for four that cost 47.50 euros per night.

Anti-terrorism raids underway throughout France
RNN) – French media are reporting that anti-terrorism raids are taking place across France - including the cities of Paris, Calais, Jeumont, Grenoble and Toulouse - and extending into Belgium. CNN reports an international arrest warrant has been issued for 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, a Belgian-born French national who is one of three brothers suspected of being involved in the attacks. Abdeslam was questioned by French police a few hours after the attacks but was let go, CNN is reporting.
The AP reports that on Sunday France launched "massive" air strikes on the Islamic State group's de-facto capital in Syria Sunday night, destroying a jihadi training camp and a munitions dump in the city of Raqqa, where Iraqi intelligence officials say the attacks on Paris were planned.
French media identified one of the Paris attackers as 29-year-old Ismael Omar Mostefai, a French national from a southern suburb of Paris. He is one of three attackers authorities have identified as French citizens. Another suicide bomber was identified Sunday as Belgium citizen Bilal Hafdi. They are working with other countries to ID othe... (Hawaii News Now)
