They we're slow, lethargic, and did there own thing.

--How fast do you need them to be?  What's "their thing" and how does that differ from "your thing?"

Backs were running to wrong spots.

--That happens when they have no confidence in their o-line and are just running to daylight, or they don't know the importance of running to their hole.  For most, they won't run to a hole that isn't there.  We teach them to do that anyway, as there isn't supposed to be a hole in our offensive line.

After our first 2 series, they were walking from huddle to the line. We were not firing off on the snap. They were no longer wedge blocking, they just stood straight up. On trap they were blocking like blast. Blast was actually blocked decent, but the backs kept trying run outside their blocks. This team was giving us off tackle and middle all game. Nothing changed but what we were executing.

Were they tired?  Was it hot?  Did something happen that may have caused some sort of letdown?  Coach yelling or something?  Is this the first time something like this has happened?  If not, what are the common denominators in these occurrences?

It was a nice day, low 80's and cloudy. They have had a lot of quit in them, from our first game. This quit is not just while on the field, but even before they go on to the field. Honestly it looks like they get bored and just play haphazardly. We go over these issues in practice. They know who to block and where to block, but don't seem to stay with it. We do the chaser drill on our backs and they run to there spots quickly. We have 22 players and never go on air. We call play out loud, have kids point to whom they are blocking and where the ball is being ran. The defense tries and overload the play, since we call it out loud, but the backs stay on track and make great yardage. In games something happens to everybody's brain. I can understand if the teams were changing what they did and who was doing it, but they aren't. I am not the play caller, I am watching the D and helping the play caller. HC is watching the OL, play caller is watching backfield, 2 other coaches are watching 1 left idea and 1 right side, last coach is working with kids who have been pulled out for mistakes and assess and fix what is going wrong ( also does substitutions ). None of us has a bad attitude towards the players, but do occasionally chew some ass.

3 players getting fired and 3 players getting promoted today. LTE, LT, and wing back are main culprits for the line failures. Also have 7 players that can play in the backfield. 4 are clearly better backs, but need motivation. Losing a spot can be a great motivator.

That's a winner. After giving up an opening series TD and onside kick, we buckled down and played some tough football. Tough, but not smart. We had 8 false starts and 3 holding penalties. Trap and wedge work well, which opened up our jet for 2 scores. End score 13-6. Setting at 4-4 with one game left.

I can't figure out these last couple of teams we played and/or going to play. The scores are all over the place, as well as the wins. One team loses to a bad team, beats a decent team, and hangs with a very good team. This is our last 3 opponents. We have beat two of them and are playing another this week. We have to win this game and have not done any scouting. We have one video of us and it is so poor, I can see five players, only. We are just going to stick with what we do and play it by ear. All I can say is the middle of the road teams, including us, are inconsistent. I really hate going into games blind.

5 Fairview 5-3
6 Troy 4-4

This week's games: Alton(us) vs Jerseyville ; Troy vs Cahokia ; Fairview vs JJK ; Knights vs Mascoutah ; Highland vs Devil's
We could have a 3 or 4 way tie at 5-4. So looking at it, we are in, but don't know the seeding.

The team we are playing have lost most of their games by 7 or less. They were blown out 1 time. Not a sure thing for us, but like our chances.

We won 32-7 and we lost because we only had 2 refs at the beginning of the game. Both teams allowed one TD each for some extremely small players. Although I don't like players to allow anything, it was pretty cool. Our team carried our guy off the field chanting his name. The smile on the young man was priceless. The head coaches decided to do this because it was a forfeit and if the game was out of hand with 2 minutes left in the game. 26-0 with 2 minutes left in the game, so we allowed each team to score. We didn't instruct them to dive and flop, but the did and played it off well. It took our guy 12 seconds to run 50 yards. Into the playoffs we go.

Playoff game this Sunday. We play a team that beat us 31-13. That was in week 2 this season. 2nd half we collapsed, kids were quitting and pulling themselves out of the game because of the heat. We have 4 different starters on our offensive line. We have 2 new players in the backfield and all 4 are in different positions. Also we did not have wedge or trap. I'm not ready to end this season.

Our season is officially over. We lost to this team 31 to 13 in the second week of the season. Most of the game was a stalemate. We allowed one pass for a touchdown, it bounced off our cornerbacks helmet going for an interception to their receiver. And that's the score for you six to nothing. We out rush them 240 yards - 40 yards. We just couldn't punch the ball in. We had the ball inside the 10-yard line three times.
