Flat Rock @ Jefferson

Both teams are coming off of week four losses. Flat Rock (0-4) fell to Airport 56-21 while Jefferson (0-4) fell to Riverview 37-6.  The Bears won last season 48-13 while the Rams won the two meetings prior to that.

Flat Rock was able to put up some points last week against Airport and should most likely continue that trend this week. The defense has been porous all season, but may fair a little better against the Bears who throw the ball a little more than most.

Jefferson has struggled to score this season and has been shut out twice already. The defense has been better than last year, but has still struggled against quality opponents.

This game couldn't have come at a better time for either team. This should be a good game and some points will most likely be scored. The Rams have lost 13 games in a row and a win would help a team that is still mourning the death of their defensive coordinator Will Mulvaney. Prediction: Flat Rock 28 Jefferson 27

On paper the Bears should win, but the game isn't always played on paper!

The Bears have a new offensive coordinator. He was in the program already. He will lay down the law. Things should improve on offense.

Losing a coach is a tough thing.
Rams players and coaches are in our prayers. Bears still win though.

BEARS 35, RAMS 17

Well playing an emotional team is hard. We learned that last year With Bedford. I wish the Rams luck and if they do win I will be happy for them. But I also would like to see our boys get some Confidence!! I really think the Jefferson Offense will hit stride this week, Well I hope

After seeing both teams play this year, I think this will be a great game to watch. Both Jefferson Receivers are talented and fast. Sovey and Jefferson's defense could have some fun this week. Flat Rock's Dontrell Hampton is really quick and is very talented in the open field. Great prediction, could go either way.

The game is never played on paper.. It's played on the grid iron, where the tough team comes out Victorious! Which is gonna be Flat Rock this week!

New offensive coordinator at Jefferson? How can you put in a new offense mid season? Or is a new guy calling the plays? I can't see a new offense because I've seen them in spread and power I...they run everything as it is lol

Boy this is tough. I want to see both teams get a win. I am leaning towards Jefferson because they play better defense. Seems FR's offense is ok. They do say offense wins game and defense wins championships. Should be a goond one.

New OC is Gendron.

7:29.......best QB and receivers in the league based on what?

Anonymous said...

I was thinking same thing CoachTom. 27 points in 4 games with 2 shutouts? The forementioned best QB and WR's in the league should do better

Anonymous said...

D hasn't stoped anyone all year .given up average 30 pts per game.they can't get off the field.

Gendron moved from Head JV Coach to the Varsity staff this year. I like his attitude and his experience. Played on winning Jefferson teams in the early 00's. Played small college ball at Defiance. Seems like he's being groomed to take over the Head Coach role eventually. I don't see the current Varsity staff staying very much long-term. Gendron strikes me as a guy that can put it together.

The passing is fine in bear country. Qb receivers will only get better.look out Huron league

How can they stop a team when they are on the field 24/7 the defense in general looks good better than last years

Anonymous said...

I like the receivers at Jefferson. ...Quarterback makes bad decisions when pressured.

Just a new coordinator it's still the same offense

5:34 post you are a clown! Look out Huron League? Back to the beaches! It's looking like a 0-9 season!

Brandon Liparoto is the best player on Jefferson and one of the best in the league. He is a great receiver with good hands. Sad thing is football isn't even his best sport. He is going OFF tonight against the Rams and getting the Bears their first win. Watch for Bub to be a huge factor on defense too.

ummm lets compare Airport 56 FR 21...Jefferson 21 Airport 31...Bears should win this game by 4TD's

Brandon Liparoto > Everybody! Doesn't get enough credit for being a star athlete at a school that doesn't have any athletes. That school is out to get anybody with any ability in a sport. He has put up with bad teams his whole time at Jefferson and still chose to stay there for what reason? Give respect where it's deserved!! It would have been much easier for a 17 year old to take the easy way out and go to SMCC or Monroe but he stayed true to the blue. Watch for him to be a factor tonight and for him to make an attempt at all state for basketball!

Coaching you learn their is more that goes into offenses .blocking. receivers running right routes.Qb making the right decision. Jefferson offense had had to play from behind all year..makes defending easy
