Grosse Ile @ Airport

Grosse Ile (3-2) is coming off of a 40-6 home loss to Milan while Airport (2-3) lost to SMCC 27-7. The Red Devils won last season's game 28-14 but are just 2-8 in the last ten games against the Jets.

Offensively Airport is averaging 20 ppg but has struggled to score against the better teams on the schedule. Defensively the Jets give up the same amount per game.

Grosse Ile's has struggled both offensively and defensively since the injury bug hit their depth challenged team in weeks three and four. McCarty and Judd need to step up big for the visitors.

Tough game to figure out. Can the Jets use the Islander injuries to keep their playoff hopes alive? Will Grosse Ile's other talented players step up and continue their run to the playoffs? Pick: Grosse Ile 14 Airport 13

That is a big word to call kids. I really can't think of anything worse. I won't allow that.

if stewart and pugh are out for the year i don't see GI making playoffs. They would have no D or O-line at all. or the depth to try and beat a team with 30 kids when they have around 18 healthy

I hope there is a way that you know who is saying what on this blog, Chris. I'd like some names, because if someone is calling kids "big words" as you say, I would like the names too. I would love to have a little chat with them. And by chat, I mean say it to my face and see what happens.
As far as I know, those who have checked out at GI were bound to do so. That is no reflection on the rest of the team as stated in the previous thread by some GI parents. Unless you are on the practice field, in the locker room or on the sidelines yourself, blind statements regarding the mind frame of these young men is irresponsible and childish. They don't want to lose, they need some continuity on the field so they know what is expected.

After watching last weeks demolishing of Grosse Ile, I have to take airport. Grosse Ile seemed deflated and really didn't do much at all defensively. The Milan run game smashed GI. I think with the size they have on the line they have the potential to dominate. Jets 20-7

Don't worry football fans, even if Airport wins that makes them 3-3. They won' t beat Milan, Tecumseh or Huron. Even if they go 5-4 I don't see them getting in. Streak over. GI welcome to reality.

I certainly don't agree with people using "big names" talking about any of the student athletes. However, your "meet them face to face and see what happens" is just as childish. Unfortunately in the last 2 weeks GI has went from contender to irrelevant. And with all of the talking GI fans did leading up to this, you are bound to have people say stupid things. Don't be one of them.

2 teams in bad need of a win. Airport 21 GI 13. Any chance Mitroka will be back by the end of the season? EM

Boy oh boy. This is an easy choice for me. Airport wins 21-14. The Red Devils are scrambling after being taken down hard by the Milan big reds. I thought GI would step up big on defense and beat Milan last week but boy was I wrong. GI defense was the worst its been all season. It was sickening to watch. Offensively, we all know how that is without Mitroka. Airport has a chance to win the game as long as they jump on GI early and break their will. Red Devils better figure something out or its gonna be a long game.

Airport won't run on anyone. They will have to rely on the pass.

Losing mitroka for the season was a huge blow on the field but it was also a huge emotional blow for EVERYONE involved with GI football. That team will in no way, shape or form be as good as it could have been no matter who steps up. Everyone there is dealing with it and it takes more than a week to get over. He was the leader and was made captain as a junior, he made the team go, period. GI was bound to take a huge step back for a week or 2, let's see how they line up this week.

Team now has unity and couldn't be happier.

Everyone's defense has looked bad when they played Milan.

Huron was the only semi-decent one and Milan had almost 400 yards of offense.

GI will be better this week in all phases, no doubt. They actually did ok passing the ball last week.
