Encinal-Kennedy thoughts

OK, I have to keep this short but sweet seeing how I’ve come down with some kind of major cold (I’m sure that weather at Encinal didn’t help).

Kennedy played horrible. Encinal came out and punched ‘em in the mouth and Kennedy had no answer. Fantastic job by QB Jonathan Brown. 204 yards passing, 5 TDs …. heck of an effort! Great job on defense holding down Walker and Dismuke.

Anyway, got my NyQuil and crashing out. I hope to feel well enough tomorrow to jump on the blog.

Congrats Encinal! Dominated from start to finish.

    i have no problem with trash talkin. let the players take care of it on the field between the whistle.

    guru-black MC and Novato are not perfect by any means. For MC you need to stop the run and make them put it in the air. The 27 points allowed last week was the most MC has allowed in the last 2 seasons. How did O dowd do it? Is Encinals O line as good or as big as BOD’s. One big factore is going to be the field. MC has played all but one of it’s games on turf, going to natural grass is very different.

    Novato is not perfect either. They are not real big ,but they bring a very balanced offence to the field. They are deep in the skill positions. The biggest advantage (THIS IS NOT A KNOCK ON ANY OTHER COACHING STAFF) is the coaching staff. They use each of there players strengths very well subbing players in and out better than anyother team I have seen. Short of just being overmatched physically to beat them the Jets will need to play a perfect game.

    Guru Black…sounds like i hit a nerve.

  • Jetflash

    Dizzy you have earned my R-E-S-P-E-C-T. And MC is going to be our toughest oppenent yet.With that said “22 against the world” are coming with game faces on. OH YEA

    Had an opportunity to watch and talk with players from the kennedy-fremont football team and asked why they gave the QB so much time to throw against Encinal when they were able to get after the QB the week before? The answer was holding and chop blocks. The D-linemen for kennedy-fremont apparently at one point in the 1st qtr asked to ref to watch the holding and the ref replied “well, try not to get held”.

    In the opening series for Encinal on one play the entire O-line was allowed to set (hands on the ground) raise up and set again with no penalty (I guess its on a video that may be sent to NCS about the officiating).

    When the refs were asked to watch the guards from Encinal for moving early (they say multiple times, again on the video…this is easy to see) each ref said “its not my call.” If the info seems unfounded watch the tape.

    On one play in the first half the whistle was blown immediatly after the snap and Encinal’s center had both hands on the nose guard’s shoulders filled with jersey, the players told the head ref to look and he replied “I don’t see anything.”

    The Jets are in the next round Congratulations to them they worked hard, they got it. Just try not to yell and jump around before the person singing the National Anthem sings “and the rockets red glare” I’m not sure you know but its kind of disrespectful.

    Good luck to both MC and Encinal tonite. Good luck to Novato and Miramonte tomorrow. Regardless of the trash talk, the game will be played on the field. Regardless of the poor sportsmanship and bad calls, the outcome will be determined on the field. This has been a great season for everyone involved and just remember, whether you believe or not, karma is a b*%&ch and it will rear its ugly head when it is least expected. BE SAFE and PLAY WITH HONOR!!!

    hsfootballfrezy,Holding is grabing and pulling or the hands and arms encircling the body. I will say it might happen a few times but not the way you say. All Honest Offensive linemen will admit to it from time to time as it is the nature of the game. The Line just blocked well and they also have a very mobile QB. Also I don’t believe that showing a respectful spirited response to the National Anthem is disrespectful at all and i am a Former Service member. Encinal was just the better football team that day. The score reflects that so please stop with the sourpuss moaning. One last thing,Cut blocking is just that. Cut blocking is permiting at all levels of football last time i checked. Jet Speed comes from Jet Power.

  • Old Meddling Former Coach

    One last thing. Encinal has tasted defeat before in the semi’s last year and this is the reason these guys are driven. Win or lose these guys will not quit until the last second is run off the clock. Keep in mind that most of the people (including me) are fans on this blog And don’t play. Stop hating on the Kids and let them have their fun. We’ve been on the losing end so what is wrong with them enjoying it now. With respect to the other teams of Course. I hated to see Kennedy Lose like that but it will make them stronger next year but someone wins and someone loses and as i said above,Encinal was the better team last week. As for Tonite,I feel Victory will be ours.

  • HAAL Fan

    The old guy’s got a point frenzy. Like it or not, bad officiating happens. As a defensive tackle I was taught techniques to get an offensive lineman off of me, not to get a referee’s attention. We were always taught to play against the team, the crowd, and the officials. Not saying it’s right, just saying it’s how it is.

  • Joey

    You Kennedy people need to just stop, YOU LOST! Just be happy you made it that far. Wait another 40+ years and try to win the 2nd round.

    One thing I will say some of you are pretty creative, blaming the halftime announcer, the field, refs and now the National Anthem. What’s next?

    Were the Encinal fans wearing bright colored clothing? That distracted the Titans from looking down field. Could explain why the RB’s would run to the sidelines. Well at least that sounds better than they just didn’t want to get hit…

  • Dizzy

    Joey,

    This issue was long dead as of last week. Quit taking shrooms and join the up to date conversation. We have conceded defeat to a good team. I for one had to say that after the JFK – Encincal game that I became a Jets fan. Ask anyone on here, Jets got props from me just like I said they would get if we got beat. Save your rethoric for MC.

  • Jetflash

    Dizzy you’ve grown so much this week. WOW what a turn around. Now about the game.The JETS are winners not whinners. Come with your game faces on. And to echo Old Meddling Former Coach” Jet Power and Jet Speed”. See ya at the BIG GAME ta all

  • Old Meddling Former Coach

    I’ll make it easy for people to understand why Encinal has done so well. Shakespeare Quote:This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember’d;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day. Any real Warriors will understand. Jet Pride!
