Re: Metamora@Dunlap

I was watching Morton QB Nolan's highlights against Pekin. Yes, the kid is good and fast but that was some of the WORSE defense tackling, angles and positioning I have seen! It's like Pekin defenders have not been coached at all. I honestly don't know if Pekin can beat Canton, I think they can but w...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Someone on one of the espn football shows said that Trubiskey was the next Blake Bortles! I hope not, especially for a number two pick of the draft. But so far, Mahomes and Watson are way better than Trubiskey. You know I can see Nagy's offensive schemes have a chance to do well if they are run well...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

After three quarters, Bears with 241 yards and Seattle with just 81, yet Bears lead just 10-3.... :shock:

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

I thought the offense would go downfield more often under Nagy - longest pass tonight (completion) is just 18 yards. Maybe it's that Trubiskey at this point is not very good with mid-range/deep balls. If the Bears can get a TD on this drive, I think the game will be over. At this point I can't see H...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Still didn't like Fox! Trubiskey seems to have what Dan McNeil calls the YIPS - happy feet, looking nervous in the pocket.

Re: Metamora@Dunlap

I wouldn't worry about Pekin too much, their defense will not stop Metamora's offense, they will allow big plays. I think Metamora can put 47-54 points on Pekin easily - Metamora 49 Pekin 21...Dunlap-Metamora will be a good game but Metamora will win this one. This game will kind of show where the B...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Nagy could have killed the clock yet his hurry up and play calling allowed Seattle to get that three points. Inexcusable. Am I the only one thinking this ends just like last week regardless of how bad the opponent is? We all agree they are garbage yet here the Bears are at home up only seven points...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Trubisky has been awful. Horrible clock management by Nagy leaving Seattle time. Shocked by how horrible Seattle is. Wilson has to feel like Archie Manning did on those old Saints teams. Time management was bad. Got cute running that 2nd down hurry up play. Like said last week, Nagy trying to prove...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Another great first drive by the Bears. Words can't describe how amazing it is to have a competent offense. I don't see any competent offense - one drive doesn't make a game. Longest pass is 17 yards thus far. Tribiskey looks terrible - he has some bad misses. I would rather have Mahomes or Watson ...

Re: Dunlap@Washington

I've been saying since the season began that Morton is the third best team in the MI. Dunlap has not impressed at all, two wins over very weak teams and a win over a mediocre team Pekin that could have easily been a lost. The Eagles lost too many players from last year. They're still a decent team b...

Re: Week FOUR - Post Your Scores!

Well, there is where I say good night to all! Morton got second half kick, scored on first play from scrimmage! Honestly the Potters five TDS total 270 yards! Think about that - Pekin isn't even trying to play defense at this point! Now Pekin fumbles on their FIRST play of second half, Morton recove...

Re: Week FOUR - Post Your Scores!

No, but Morton will win this. Pekin has long, plodding drive, Morton then scores on 2-3 play drive. Example, Pekin scored to make it 21-21 with 2:45 left in first half. You think, well maybe the teams will go in locker room tied or at least it will take Morton the rest of half to score. NO - Morton ...

Re: Week FOUR - Post Your Scores!

Morton now has three long TD runs - Pekin had 14-7 now losing 21-14. THIS is where the dam breaks - at least Pekin held it off for a quarter but now Morton will run free and wild....good bye playoffs for Pekin!

Well that's a first - Pekin actually stopped Morton and then scored, Dragons up 14-7. Hopefully this can be a game - might be a shootout like last year...still think Morton's got too much offense, but nice to see Dragons get some O tonight.

Yeah, Morton adjusts, stops Pekin, Potters ball on their own 20 and now will come a HUGE run! We know this script well...another long night for Dragon fans. So I will put my interest in the Washington-Dunlap game although I think the Panthers will win that one easily...

Yup, Nolan 55 yard run - Morton ties game with just a few plays- Pekin can't STOP the Potter - this will be a repeat of last year - Morton will score 50+ points tonight - really wish Dragons coaches could figure out defense and at least SLOW down Potters - Pekin will now turn ball over or go out on ...

Gosh, Morton's freshman must be pretty good - smacking Pekin 46-6 tonight. Pekin beat Dunlap last week 30-0. So wow! Last week Morton fresh beat Canton 34-0 or something like that. Potters building a good program!

SOPH/JV Thoughts

How is the new Soph/JV setup going so far in the Mid Illini. I know Pekin's Soph/JV beat Dunlap last week 12-0 but don't know much about the game. How many juniors are playing in these games - anyone have a guess? Any complaints so far? Does Limestone have enough players to form SOPH/JV team?

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

I didn't watch game, so I don't know all the details but what I know is this, 10th inning, bases loaded and one out, Madden has Strop hit instead of pinch hitter. Strop hits in double play and gets injured. So why didn't Madden pinch hit? Was there a reason? On the surface, I am thinking get a pinch...
