Next year's team will be run heavy. The QB position will be interesting to see. Will Kinnard get the nod? If so will he be throwing much? Though small, he is a tough, smart kid and knows the offense. I think it would be interesting to see a little wildcat action as well. Backs are second to none. Line will do nothing but get bigger, stronger and better. Defense, just like always will be our meal ticket. Lawless, Jack and Joseph will be hard to move. We have size and speed in the linebacking corps. Parrish is a beast in the middle. Willhoite and Watson are fast and aggressive. Sid and Will are going to need to step in and start or give a lot of mins. They are ready I believe due to lots of playing time this year. We have to solve Sully's departure. The secondary will be a work in progress with the question being at free safety There are rising juniors who can step up and get quality playing time. This number 9 I think will find his way onto the field. Ive seen him play at LB and I wonder if he could step into Slater's free safety role. This should be a great year. There are players hurting and some surgery on the way, but there is time to heal. Go get that gold ball Eagles!!! Sitting at home watching it almost made me sick!
I thought I was the only one that felt that way watching it from my couch! Worst feeling I have ever had watching a football game.
I am really liking the idea of Kinard getting the nod at QB. I hear the players respect him and as you know that goes along way. Hope we find a way to use both backs on the field at the same time. Will put a lot of pressure on the opposing DC to account for both 11 and 26.
Losing 27 and 28 on defense is really going to hurt. Interesting idea to put 9 at FS. Could 9 go to SS and keep 26 at FS. Like we had in the WC game. Just a thought. I also wonder if Parish could slide to OLB and have 20 and 11 as MLB? Not sure how Parish would do there.
I have heard nothing about 2. Losing him at CB may be the hardest to replace of them all. Does anyone one know if he is playing or will be allowed to play? Our chances to win the title next year is not as good without him especially if we play Davidson Academy. Their Coach does a great job with the air attack
