Thread: Slippery Rock at New Haven

  1. #1

    Default Slippery Rock at New Haven

    Any thoughts?

    I know West Chester lost its starting QB in the loss to New Haven, but that had nothing to do with the Chargers scoring 35 points on a defense that had us completely flummoxed a week earlier. That's worrisome. Offensively, we've left a lot to be desired the last two weeks. The play calling has to improve if we want to win Saturday. With our athletes, we should be scoring more than 10 and 17 points a game. I don't think less than 20 will cut it this weekend.

    I know I really called into question whether Lutz was the right guy for this job after the Shippensburg loss, but he's done a great job of getting these guys refocused week in and week out. As bad as we looked against West Chester, he had the players ready to go in the playoffs. Kudos to him for that.

    Anybody from New Haven want to chime in about things those of us traveling should know (parking, seating, places to eat, etc)? Looking forward to a good game and hoping for a heat wave in New England. Go Rock!

    Play calling definitely needs to pick up.

    To me the play calling is to jus manage the game. My brother talks how during the season they would be up a lot and coach takes the starters out when they should maybe work on their passing game a lot more. Honestly I feel that our play calling is basic and not good enough to win. The thing is we have good players who are saving these play calls. If we really wanna win let’s open the bag of plays because my other brother is #6 Safety at Valdosta State and their offense is fire

    Agreed. The talent of our players has masked a lot of the coaching staff’s warts (ie: play-calling and decision-making)

    Actually I think the coaching staff won this game, I haven't been a big fan of the DC; but his gameplan was very good, blitzed a lot more and took advantage of Post's banged up OL. We give them (coaching staff) hell when they screw up; but when they deserve props, we should acknowledge that as well!

    well let's be honest, your brother has not played too well lately, manage the game is not a bad thing (means no turnovers). I think he is trying too hard and trying to do everything himself. ; in the middle of season he was just reacting and not thinking too much and letting his athletic ability take over.

    this week needs to be the same as middle of season, New Haven blitzes a lot, he is going to have limited time to go through his reads, and if it is not there take off

    I agree. I believe he’s trying to do a lot instead of jus reacting. He has to calm down and focus and understand he can live to fight another down.

    Absolutely! Our defense won that game Saturday. It was the best defensive performance I've seen from our guys in quite awhile. I gave Lutz props at the top of this thread for the outstanding job he did this year. I know a lot of SRU people were looking at next year as the year and expecting about a 7-4 record from this team. So the fact that we swept the West and are still playing on Thanksgiving weekend says a lot about both the players and coaches.

    But, the play calling these last two weeks has been suspect. Against West Chester, it was sheer panic. Last week was a little better, but we had a drive, up six with about six minutes left in the fourth quarter, where we threw two incomplete passes (one on first down) and went three-and-out. Post had the ball back in under a minute of game time. That's the part of the game where we need to just live or die with Hills. And that's no disrespect to Rivers, either. I have a lot of confidence in that kid. But I'm not throwing the ball in that situation if I have Tom Brady as my QB.

    Live and learn, get better and beat New Haven

    I'm not experiencing that. A few stoppages for a couple seconds each, that's it.
