Better played game. Still a

Better played game. Still a little concern about the defensive line, until #64 came to the party. Great game young man, and he is only a sophmore. Just keep attacking the ball. It is a concern when #51 is out of the game that the defense gives up touchdowns against opponents that should not score. He is a senior guys, stepup now or next year will be very hard. It is tererible to watch #24, who cannot run in traffic. He needs to be used as a receiver to get his speed in the open field. But only throwing 7 passes will make him ineffective as well. Balance attack or find someone who brings that balance. What can I say about #30, running downhill and pray you do not have to tackle this kid. #30 and a fullback would be a great combo, both running and passing for additional protection of #6. When #6 has protection he has shown signs of very good passing ability. The seconday will have a very tough time with a team that can pass and run. Wake up guys and use your arms to tackle, the flying shoulder is not effective or what you have been taught. Your all better than the level at which you have been playing, it is time to hit on all cylinders. It is crunch time, you have to win all of your games from here on out, regardless.
