I know, I know....NS should come in and wipe the floor with WB. Maybe we can take a few pointers from our brothers down the road on how to beat them. LOL! Your thoughts? WB just might be there, at the end, claiming one of those playoff spots.

If NS shows up to party empty handed like they've been doing this season, WB should win this game. Something is going on at NS that is effecting the team negatively, just don't know what it is. Despite what folks are saying, NS isn't dying, it's just one of those years. Looking forward to seeing the stadium though, I've only passed by and it looks amazing.

Is NS not pounding up the middle at all any more?

They are, but like I've said, the O-line hasn't been what we've seen in past couple of years. It also doesn't help when you run the same play over and over, teams will pick it up eventually. NS suprisingly has some success running to the outside against PA. Didn't think they would considering PAM's speed.

Wow. That's surprising to me also (outside runs). I thought speed would be--at best--a draw. The other question was simply because I thought I remembered some Katy posters mentioning BWB may be soft in the middle. Of course, they were running behind the Katy OL.

Zone read takes about 2-3 secs to decide and go, all that's doing is giving the D-line extra time to get away from the O-Line. I like the zone read, but most of the time a QB can read the Defense from the pocket.

barring penalties,north shore should win this one. bwb running game is almost do not exist(expect for against tyler lee:rolleyes:). the passing game is highly suspect. stump throws to one guy and that's malone,#16 and he's a little wr. 28-10 north shore.

I'd be interested what "my other brother 82" has to say. I haven't seen BWB in person yet. I do know they're at home and maybe feeling disrespected.

Formations and play design does not allow for a strong up the middle running style. Unless a team is just particularly horrible at both the DT and MLB they wont have sustained success with this approach.

Would require major formation changes and OL blocking schemes.

WB's running game is coming along quite nicely. With the exception of a few SR's, this is a very young team. Percy Johnson has been hitting the running lanes, and if he gets into open space, he can burn you. QB Stump's play has definitely improved in recent weeks. He seems to be less apt to run, immediately, and has been staying in the pocket longer and completing more passes. Yes, #16 Jalen Malone is a great WR, but he's not the only one. Robert Redd has been getting some catches, and has made an impact since he joined the team. NS wont be able to cover both WR's successfully. Our weak point has to be the inexperience on the D-line, or defense as a whole. Our secondary is better than its been in years past, but the run defense is not as good. Still, they seem to be showing signs of improvement every week. WB may, or may not beat NS, but I think we'll be laying claim to one of those playoff spots when its all over with. Dont overlook WB. This team is not that bad, and is getting better.

I think this one could turn into a good game. Two good defenses.

No hype at all though.

As Mr. Rod said if all depends which North Shore offense shows up this week. If its the offense that has taken the field the past couple of weeks then its going to be another long night. But if we can find our grove and get somethings going then it could turn into a good game. Haven't seen Brook this year but I expect them to come ready to defend their home turf as they always do when we come to town.

I've seen NS (twice) and BWB this year. BWB's defense is not what it was last year, and the offense is not as good without a consistent running threat at QB. Also, BWB lacks the change of pace back they found to compliment Percy Johnson last year.

I think NS will be fine if they'll just keep the ball on the ground and make sure milton is heavily involved. I think NS needs more plays designed directly for the RBs and that they don't have to call reads every down. If mcduffey isn't involved in the passing game, hand him the rock.

I'll go with NS by 21+.

Very very easy to run a wild-cat formation with the NS type of offense. If your zone-read is taking longer than 2 seconds to execute your in trouble with a good defense.

NS should be able to win this.

NS - 42
BWB - 10

I think Shore has good players up front, but I don't think they are the right fit for this offense necessarily. Stony Point had much smaller OLs than what North Shore has. I think this offense almost requires a Wing T type line because of all the movement required. I'd want a line averaging between 220-260 pounds for the offense NS is trying to run.

Against pam, the most successful runs I noticed for Shore were the ones when the OL was able to put its hands on people and move the furniture. On other plays, they were feeling for blocks as opposed to attacking for them.

Make no mistake, Stump can run! In fact, I'd say thats his best asset at QB because his accuracy when throwing the ball has been questionable, at best. I think WB will be fine. Coach Stump may not play it so conservative, and open up the play book a bit.;) As another poster said, NS's run defense is pretty good, which is why I think we'll try to go to the air to move the ball. Hoping to get off work in enough time to go see this game!

I totally agree with you on this all season they have routinely sent McDuffey and Deleon in motion yet they have only handed them the ball less than a handful of times. As I told someone last week we've done that so much that I don't think most teams even pay attention do it. And with a Qb that is obviously not adept at making quick and precise reads why not do all that you can to help the offense become productive.

That was plenty vague enough, so no I don't see a problem with what you wrote. Problems arise when people get into specifics and stating things as absolute truth.

From what I've seen, it would take multiple turnovers deep in their own territory for NS to allow 24 points against WB. If they do however, they could be in trouble. The NS offense has some issues, but I think they'll have enough to beat the Bruins.

How much of a factor will play into NS's QB being out with an injury. Who else do they have, since Thomas is out? Wasn't he the backup, anyway? Just wondering how much this changes things for the game?

NS has it's fans like most schools do. Bandwagoners. For the Ike and KW game we had a great turnout, but with NS not playing as well as they have, there won't be as big as a crowd as usual. Ask any professional team. I was glad to see PAM bring a lot of fans. But lets not pretend that they have sold out at every away game. A third of them showed up to Aldine and I recall a playoff game at GPISD with a disappointing showing. NS could have a fan base almost as big as Katy's. Neither Teams or school organizations embrace their fanbase.

to be honest we thought he was that bad of a passer. his numbers before PAM was not that impressive at all. he was completing less than half of his passes. so we just thought the over thrown and one hop passes was bad mechanics. still i while he was handling the ball he showed no signs of injury. tough kid i guess...

According to TSRN they didn't know. Everyone just thought he was having a bad game.

Anywho Newsome fit right into the slot and took the reigns! Well done Stangs! Now if only they can keep the momentum from the second half going for the rest of the season.

Tough loss tonight, thought we had the Mustangs where we wanted them at the half. They made adjustments though. So #10 Thomas didn't play, but Newsom was out there. I though Newsome was injured as well though at the start of the season? Did he just heal up but didn't get the starting job back? He was very elusive tonight.

Newsome? Yes he started tonight but I though he was injured along with Thomas. I honestly had no idea what to make of the NS QB situation tonight, but WB def. couldn't stop whoever was back there anyway when it counted.

Newsome played tonight with a torn acl, will prolly start til playoffs, Thomas played against pam with a bad wrist. Newsome is shorter, but faster, and so far much more accurate.

Ns will make the playoffs regardless. And more than likely wins out from here. Newsome took one half to get back into the speed of the game, then wrecked from there on out. He is very athletic and had he been a little further in the healing process likely would have played against Pam. During the Pam game Thomas had to play considering we didn't have a healthy back up. That's why in the 4th you saw us completely ditch the passing game

Torn ACL?!? Thats unreal. Probably wasn't too severe or must've healed enough to allow him to play tonight. Very nice performance from Newsome tonight, made the plays when it really counted for NS. :notworthy

Yes he tore his ACL last year in the scrimmage and missed the season, then he tore his ACL AGAIN in the Katy game this year. now he's back, and he was making things happen, despite the bad snaps, which probably came from the center being used to Micah Thomas who is 4 or 5 inches taller. so that should work itself put. came as a shock to me to see he was out there... from what I gathered Tim Chenier was supposed to start tonight(could be wrong) and Newsome was a last second kinda thing. Personally I'm very glad to see hin out there. He's missed two seasons in which he was a projected starter. And now he is toughing out a torn ACL to make his dreams of being a great mustang quarterback come true. Gotta give that guy props.

Seriously, if he is playing with a torn ACL he is making a dumb move. I hope he stops thinking about here and now and starts thinking about if he would like to be able to walk without a cane in the future.

This injury talk should end right here unless you have an article documenting this conjecture.

Just my opinion.

North Shore pulled it together. Next week will be a ugly game at this point. Two stout defenses and two bad offenses.

I think its pretty common knowledge that Newsome has a problem with his ACL all the media outlets have reported it, otherwise I wouldn't open my mouth on the subject. And I know our coaching staff wouldn't let him play if the felt there was too much risk...
