Goddamned Birdville beat Boswell tonight. Beat em' pretty good, too in the second half. Fucking Boswell's offensive coordinator must be Jason Garrett's retarded, black brother. Our first series, we stick to short passes to the outside, drive the ball downfield, they hold us to a field goal, 3-0 us. We hold them, they punt. Next drive, we run the ball down their throats. Our RB who usually isn't that great is getting 6-7yards a carry, eventually he runs it in for a TD. We miss the extra point...9-0 us. I believe we stopped them again and here's where shit goes down. We completely abandon the run game except for sending the QB up the middle every once in a while. We throw nothing but short inside passes, and nothing. Birdville gets the ball...scores. We do the same damn thing. Birdville gets the ball again...scores. Half-time is 14-9 Birdville. Well...did we make any adjustments or go back to the winning strategy the second half? Nah. Same thing. I think we gave it to the running back once, and he got 5 yards, and then we never gave it to him again. Late in the 4th quarter, we do throw a long bomb down the sideline and the receiver makes a one armed catch. TD. However, by this time, birdville is killing us b/c our defense is on the field most of the game b/c our offensive coordinator is a fucking moron and won't stick with what was working.
Very frustrating game. Next two games should be a cakewalk into the play-off's though. Boswell should finish with a 7-3 record, being 5-2 in district 6-4A. I pretty much figured this would be their record at the beginning of the season, but if I could have picked one hard game for us to have won, it would've been this. The talent was there, but Birdville out-coached the fuck out of us.
