Coach Talk
Layne Ducks
Identifying mismatches is a huge component to winning in football. With great performances by Derrick Henry and Todd Gurley II, our team made that a point of emphasis this past week. We nearly tripled The Mad Scientist at running back (40.2 points to 14.4). Henry had 109 total yards and two TDs, while Gurley II logged 113 yards.
The Mad Scientist
With only five catches this past week, the starting running backs for The Mad Scientist should remind their quarterbacks to get them more involved (and dial up a screen play or two).
