Steve, you guys gave them all you had
« on: December 04, 2015, 12:20:01 AM »
Found this on youtube. The DWing and the 46 kept you in a game against a bigger, faster and stronger team. You guy looked like ants next to more than a few of these other kids.  Either way congrats on making it to the quarter finals.

Yeah, they are loaded....their qb played on 3 different high school teams in his career so its obviously raised a question about recruiting there...Bloomfield has  a long string of state titles, we lost to them twice this year by a td each time...we defeated them last year (when they didn't have that qb).

our miscues cost us...missed blocks, dropped fourth down pass, terrible punt...but yeah, the kids played hard and never gave up.

Yeah I noticed. Must of been the part at the start of the video where they are jumping up and high fiving in the middle of the field.

Hey, how can you be above average on INT and Sacks and bellow on tackles?? I kind of expected the passing to be bellow the national average.

I do have a question for you. Given they had more speed I kind of expected more trap.  I also noticed the edge players angled in. It was a 5-2 with CB rolled up. No wing on??

Oh we used trap and we used wing on.

Ill have complete clips for that game, those were clips put together by the media.

We hurt them bad with trap in the first meeting with them. This game we hurt them with powers and sweeps....

we don't fake our tackle stats...they are legit stats. I mean our games typically have 130 snaps, so we can expect around 50 tackles in a game maybe because we are controlling most of those snaps.


What other teams do is LIE LIKE CRAZY on their tackling stats...kids with 200 plus tackles....that's bunk.


think about this, our falcon averaged around 9 tackles a game....x 11 games...I mean could a dback or lber really average 20 tackles a game???


as far as wing on, yes we used it...quite a bit.

Steve

Again congratulations on a great season.

We had a LB who played 6 years in the NFL. His senior season he was a tackling machine. He had 165 tackles for 12 games, a school record that no one has even come close to. 200 tackles is a unicorn!

Yeah, I agree...I don't appreciate those who lie and put out fake stats.

Our top kid, a 160 lb runningback/free safety had a monster year...

169 carries, 1240 rushing yards, 7 ypc,  21 rushing tds, 1 rec td, 1 kr td, 100 tackles, 6 picks.   

Those stats are pretty good.

I watched the video and thought your kids did a great job.  Their QB was a key and he hurt you at times.  Other times your 46 was making things difficult.  I dont think you were OVERUN by any means at all! 

With regards to tackles our HS Stats guys are pretty honest folk.  They give halves to the next guy in as opposed to the Solo because one kid put a finger or hand on him first.  Several years back our HS made it to the playoffs for the first time.  Round 1 our ISLB had 11 tackles. Round 2 he had 9.5 in a losing cause.  Season Total was 129 in 11 games.  Not quite 10 tackles per game average.  Yet there were kids with 150 in just 9 season games.  There are some "Tall Tales" for sure! 

Check the phone booths in the area for a suit, tie, and glasses!  LOL   

Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  :)
