May 20th Weekend Review
Eagles 14-13 over Hawks
Eagles are the second best team in the WSFL, but can they close the gap on the Lions and play them well in the coming weeks? Can the Hawks rebound and be competitive against Lions as well. They could win home field if the beat Eagles buy more than 1 score in rematch!
Lions 14-0 over Raptors (called at half)
Lions got PLAYED!!! They were hosted in a mud pit with make believe refs. They put up 2 scores before the game and attitudes got out of hand. Not sure how many players will stay and not bolster WWFA teams before roster locks hit! Raptors are SAD. Mismatch helmets and jerseys, no real field nor fan base. Edmunds is doing himself more harm than good. Without money and talent, semi pro looks like a Raptors team, hope they can get one of the two soon!
Pitbulls 42-7 over Idaho Hawks
Good win for Pitbulls over a bunch of unknowns. Needed a good win and confidence builder going into match-up with Renegades for 2nd place in the PFL.
Mayhem 44-0 over Outlaws
WOW!!!! QB Espich you are the weakest LINK!!! J/k You got some playing time and that’s what matters! DB Jaeron Ayala had 3 INTs and a TD. He now has 5 in 2 games and doesn’t face a top 5 team…. Welcome to AYALA ISLAND FOLKS!!! Outlaws look to go win-less in 2017 if they cannot find any linemen! Mayhem are in lead for division with match up against win-less Vipers after the bye week!
Bengals 20-14 over Hurricanes
Hurricanes need some help! WR/DB Stout had 2 TDs , but needs to do MORE if they want to win! They also may be looking at a win-less campaign in 2017 without some athletes up front! Bengals just keep winning, but will finally play a team with a win in the Rage after the bye. need a win against the rage to keep momentum and prove they are more than just the BEST of the WORST!
Kings 54-10 over Rage
Rage are young and small, but they didn’t give up and they SCORED (which means some clippers should be warming up!) on a stingy defense. Moral victories are not enough and with MLB Cardenas for an undetermined amount of time, they need to take this loss in stride, find some humility and be ready to POUND the Bengals. No Waller, no Kruse, NO PROBLEM!!!! Special teams and defense still are dominant as ever. Huge special teams play and defensive dominance proved the difference in this game. QB Reilly played well enough to win, but is he the long term answer without Kruse?
Raven 43-22 over Storm
The Storm got the wake up call I expected. Yes, they beat the Bearcats, but i knew that could happen. When faced with an athletic opponent, they got WORKED!!! Good news is they play hurricanes next week, but the bad news is Kings, Rage and Bengals are still on the schedule! Ravens are getting it going and on a 3 game winning streak. they will need all the momentum and mojo they can get matching up with the Kings after the bye!
Wolfpack 14-3 over Rams
Rams couldn’t punch the ball in when in the redzone. Not sure the exact number, but they easily had 15 penalties for over 100 yards, which cost them yardage on a 52 yard FG attempt that hit the cross bar and plenty of offsides that kept the Wolfpack in manageable down and distances. They have some coming together to do, but may upset some teams in future. Wolfpack squeaked one out on the road. A win is a win, but lack of offensive production may be a worry long term!
Cobras 31-14 over Vipers
Vipers are looking like they may be trash. In what was basically a home game, they were dominated and frustrated by a inconsistent Cobras team. Can they find a way to score more than 2 TDs and be consistent against the Mayhem after the bye? Cobras won a must WIN game and look to play one of the toughest teams in the NW while everyone else has a bye! Not sure HC Pierre understands the physical punishment Raiders will bring the week before playing a huge game against a physical Bearcats team on road. Hoping them a good and competitive against Raiders!
Grizzlies 32-25 over Nighthawks
NIGHTHAWKS NEED TO MATURE AT ALL LEVELS!!! Their is no excuse for blowing a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter. Substitutions at QB, passing play calls by OC and lack of stops after turnovers on defense couple with poor calls and bickering among teammates equated to the biggest meltdown of 2017 so far. QB Wiley plays like Dilfer by managing the game and QB Phillips has playmaking ability but makes bad decisions hence the 3 TOs in 4th quarter. A decision needs to be made for the Nighthawks to get over the hump moving forward. Grizzlies won while missing 18 guys, but they were DOWN 17! Raiders are up on June 3rd and they wont blow a 17 point lead. Raines and Hansen get a week to heal up and they will be hosting Raiders so look for them to bolster their roster these coming 2 weeks!
