Who is going to kick a Field goal for Albemarle?The PA was knocked out last night during the storm there is a new one being installed Wednesday.
In regards to Emery. He is a good kid that has been through a lot over the summer. I believe this is the first time he has been in trouble. I was watching him during the game and his attitude is right. Was out there cheering on his team etc. He knows he messed up. Absolutely he would have made a huge difference tonight.
Offensively wow that is all I can say. Defensively I thought we did a great job for the most part especially being out there as long as they were.
In regards to Bird I think he started trying to do to much tonight but he was the MVP.
My question is this. We were driving I believe we were at the 15 or 20 yd line and it was a tight game. We got stood up twice in a row why not attempt the FG? I understand he has missed but our offense was not moving the ball really well. 3-0 in this type of game is huge especially when your D is playing that well. Hats off to the D tonight they really played well.
Buddy you are right about our defensive backs playing too far off the ball but what surprised me was West would put three receivers to one side and we tried to cover them with two backs. Why West didn't continue to throw in that set amazed me.I agree dogs9. The overall lack of numbers and not much team speed is very noticeable. I think Bird is doing his part and then some. Not that it would make much difference but I still don't understand why coach Smith is coaching from uptop. Someone said because he can see the field better. Maybe so but it doesn't seem to be helping. Still not sure if Smith and the team are on the same page. The DW seems to be his offense of choice so guess he will stick with it. I still believe the lack of experience on the coaching staff is very evident. I think we miss Jacobi, Bennett and Isaiah more than people think. When you are short on talent to start with these guys can't be replaced.
Couple of things I noticed last night. The kid receiving punts needs more instruction on how to play the ball. Also our DB's were playing way to far off the WS receivers. On a positive note Jackson did not hurt us like I thought he would. Hats off to the coaches for the defensive changes. Now all we have to do is get the offense back in gear and we might win a few games. This team needs a win in the worse way so EM will be a big challenge this coming fri night. Still SMH. With this big offensive line and big backs we still can't get positive yds. Guess we just have to be patient. Don't know what else to do.
