    The score is about what I expected. Congratulations to Russell for their first district win.

    Congrats to Russell on the win. Looks like it is business as usual in McGloneville.

    Devils D needs to find toughness up the middle other than Jones ... Devils are always very good running to football but Belfry will bring it between the tackles .. We have to be able to shut down Belfry fullback. This was key to winning in 2005,2006 and the loss in 2004. Jones is in the middle for this toughness but needs help ... What are Wills or Timberlake doing ? Still young group they are improving and for sure can do it ..
    Devils O backfield starting to settle in ... Line still needs work but is improving ... Again have to be able to knock Belfry off the ball - wing t will not trick Belfry ...

    Intensity - Devils expect to win , but never come out in first series on D with real intensity. Not alot of hitting in practice but without a doubt the old coach has proven he knows what he is doing and it always works .. So first series problems are not a worry ...
    Belfry is not even on the schedule. Ashland is next and that is all that the players should be focussed on.

    That should include all tackles.

    As for the first series not being a worry. What about the time that they get scored on in that first series and are not able to come back. Do you realize that Russell has played from behind in every game so far this year. They keep doing that and will run up against someone that will use that first drive to their advantage.

    Never settle for mediocre! Which is what Russell is doing most of the first quarter in every game so far.

    Wills is going to play football at Georgetown. As far as I know Timberlake is doing absolutely nothing with football.
    Russell is 3-0 and have won like 32 in a row at home.
    Why is everyone up in arms for giving up a TD in the first quarter?
    Get their act together? Play Russell football?
    Over 300 yards on the ground, a long TD pass, and a solid defensive effort IS Russell football.

    Because if they keep thinking this way and giving up TD's in the first quarter it can eventually come back and bite them. They lack intensity when the game starts and if they do not pick up the intensity then a Mason Co or a Simon Kenton or some other team will come in and put up a couple of quick scores and stop them. They should never be OK with giving up any TD's. They should play with all their intensity from the opening kick off till the end a not be happy giving up any TD's.

    I dont think they will have any trouble getting up for SK, Mason, Ashland, or Racelands of the world.
    Everything is fine in Devil Nation.

    Not saying that they will. I would just like to see a bit more fire early in the game. Put them away early and fast. Don't settle for having to come from behind.

    In 04, 05 and 06 how many times did Russell have to come from behind. It just concerns me a bit that they are playing from behind every game.

    I'm very concerned about the same thing. Morris will correct it. You can take that one to the bank.

    Many kids played very well last night. All of Our backs looked very good. The line play was verymuch improved. They seem to be jelling together.

    Next week will be a real test. I know Ashland has not won a game and that is what bothers me. They will be hungry. Who better to beat that your cross town rival in getting ready for the games that really count.

    I'm not up in arms. This is a very talented group but they need to come out and play early in the games. What I'm talking about is the walking around not looking very enthusiastic at the start of game. Come out with a chip on your shoulder. Like I said the talent is there. The coaching is there. I would just like to see the intensity to match it.

    The 2-7 is just a breakdown of the tackles. The stat program gives whoever the stat person types in first a solo tackle (the first number) and whoever he types in last an assist (the last number). Both count as tackles for the player (unless they do 1/2 tackle credit for assists). Most teams do not because on many plays, it is difficult to see who made the initial contact and who helped bring him down.

    I agree with you here FBALL. I watched as the devils came out to the middle of the field during the "here come the devils" and the only person seemingly fired up, banging helmets, whooping it up was A Foster. I watched him during that 1st TD drive walking around the d-line trying to pump some life into them. I watched him last week at Boyd, pacing the sidelines back and forth during the opening kickoff, then as soon as the ball was spotted running out to the defensive huddle banging his head with his helmet before he put it on.

    He seems to play with a chip on his shoulder on defense and offense. I know that he can't stand it when the backs miss their running lane on a pull play.

    Maybe between his fire and Tyler's intense hitting we can create us a "two-headed" monster combination to light the teams fire from play 1. I did notice that he was back on kickoffs tonight so he wasn't pacing the sideline like last week.

    But, I do believe the opponent has something to do with the other guys maybe coming out a little flat. That's why next weeks opponent Ashland should not be a let down game, (unless the guys read our posts about scores and an 0-3 record)
