Re: Metamora Hoops News?

Re: Chicago Bears 2019

Despite what we sometimes think, the coaching in the league is pretty darn good. The opposition has a year + of game film on Nagy play calling. It's also pretty obvious that Nagy has stressed the importance of MT staying in the pocket and the result he has taken away the very thing that MT did well....

Re: 2019 Pairings Night Thread

Pekin gets Thorton Harvey in first round. Whoever wins that one will go home in second round after meeting up with Nazareth from La Grange. I know a little about Nazareth - they have an incredible QB who is JJ McCarthy. He's going to Michigan next year - some incredible video of him I believe McCar...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2019

I don't know what to think of the game against KC. While they have some dynamite play-makers, the Chiefs have some key players either out, or significantly hobbled. This is the type of game McCarthy led teams typically dirtied their pants. On the road, slight favorite. Past history it has been a rec...

Umps zone is flavor of the month. Super inconsistent
Somewhat agree but many of the bullpen walks were, walks. Can't do that. 2 to 1 game took 4hours. Brutal. Just brutal

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

Boy Redbird, I don't know. Eli is not that much of an upgrade (a little I agree) and plus he would have to learn a whole new system...interesting thought but if the Bears did something like that, in my opinion the QB would have to be a better QB than Eli at this stage... I agree it is tricky. My th...

Re: Week 2 Large School Discussion Thread

I wasn't able to attend the Washington-Belleville (West) game the other night. Sounds like quite the game/finish. Can someone who was at game, fill me/us in how a team who could not score a point in 6 quarters(shutout against Sycamore game 1), somehow score 30+ in next 2? What the heck did they do d...

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

Well one QB today who did worse than Trubisky was Jameis Winston - 46 QB rating, 1 TD and 3 INT....Baker Mayfield wasn't so hot either - 64 QB rating, also 1 TD and 3 INT, which is funny because Mayfield had ripped Trubisky a few weeks ago for not being a good QB.... I may have been sleeping but I ...

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

The big unknown for all of us(the general fan who doesn't understand it) is salary cap. Trubisky is in 3rd year of rookie contract and will be looking to get "paid" after this year, if he even has a marginally good year. Can you hear what Dak Prescott is talking number wise?. Having said that, Mitch...

Panthers have a senior class that lost only one game in frosh-soph seasons (that game was against a JV squad that had sr.’s playing for the other team). More talent there than what some remember. Lost a couple kids due to injury and relocation. They just had a ton of talent in the class above them ...

Re: Metamora Hoops News?

I realize the injury to the big kid had a negative effect, but it's a head :scratch scratcher as to the so-so season with so many returnees. I guess that's high school basketball. Not the 1st time it happened, nor will it be the last.
