Jefferson @ Grosse Ile

Both teams are coming off of week one losses. Jefferson fell to Ida 33-7 while Grosse Ile lost to Parma Western 27-21. Gross Ile won last season's game 49-7 and have won four in a row in the series which Jefferson leads 25-23 overall.

A young Red Devil team played well against a Parma Western team that is considered to be the schools best in 30 years. Junior Justin Moores showed he is another good Grosse Ile QB in the making while RB Andrew Vollmerhausen is as rugged as they come. Josh Moskall and Time Beach lead an active defense that is sure to get better as the season progresses.

Jefferson was disappointing in the opener against Ida. The Bears have gone back to a running based offense, but the passing game appeared a bit more potent in the opener.  Expect the Bears to try and establish the run and out physical the younger Islanders.

A win here for either team is needed at this point and could possibly launch someone to a solid season. A loss for either could mean a long season with wins getting harder to come by. Pick: Grosse Ile 27 Jefferson 14

Agreed passing was more potent.. If they can run enough to keep grossille from rushing hard might help line block..but that defense is bad need much work up front linebackers .need to fill holes ..

Jeffersons play calling is very predicable. Which makes it really hard when they pass because it's very clear when they are going to throw the ball. Plus the pass blocking is horrible and the defense is having a hard time stopping anything. I think if Jefferson went to a pass 1st offense they could be more effective at moving the ball, that is where their talent is, QB & WRs.

We will see how good Ida is Thursday when playing G.I. Ida was just much bigger at R.B. For the most part we are over matched by size. I'm starting to believe that is our Biggest Problem. You can have all the heart in the world, but when your giving up 40-50 pounds in some case Something has to give. I myself learned that the hard way as a parent. Hope we bus out with a Victory!!

Lots of things to work on at Jefferson. Hopefully it was an excruciating week of practice. Should be a better showing against GI. Still a little short though.

GI 28, Jefferson 24

Blow out by Devils. Comments about being to small are getting old. There was another team on here last year that was told every week they were to small and all they did was win a state championship. I'll take heart over weight any day. Don't back down Bears!

my comment about small was said about the Running back Position if looked at. when a back gets in the open field and is @ those lineman weights and you have 140-150 pound D.B's it makes it a tall task. get tired of it all you want its just a fact. All those D.B's have heart just a lot to ask was my point

You need time to grow can't just throw in a brand new offense one year and expect perfection, if it was their second year running it they would be better.

Size has nothing to do with it speed kills. Gross ile is going to roll through the Bears. This game won't be close.
