    I know they had one near the end of the game.

          Nope. He looked better as a freshman. Only player I’ve ever seen get worse with more experience, and I spent all of 2019 season trying to defend him.

            Was it just me or was he totally staring down the go to receiver etc. Pretty generic performance by QB, DB's and receiver's. D-Line did what they normally do and the LB's played a good game as well. Other than that, this was lackluster at best for both teams. I am sure that the 600+ days of not playing had something to do with that, but also the play calling and play selection for NW was marginal.

              Unfortunately, same story different day. The running game could be really dynamic if we can keep a defense honest with the passing game. I’m hopeful getting back into real football will knock the rust off. Hays did a good job of attacking our LBs in coverage but they were pretty one dimensional the 2nd half. I wish we could have blitzed more b/c their QB was willing to throw it up for grabs.

                That was the only one to my knowledge. I thought the FH line held up very well. He was hurried a few times, but he didn’t get hit very much.

                The NW line performed well in too. Had some push in the run game which was nice to see. Overall, I was happy with the play calling outside trying to get cute with the wildcat. When the line is opening holes and McKellar is running well, I don’t see the need to waste downs doing that sh*t.

                BW looked like he always has. I think he could pull it a little more often on the RPO and do the thing he is good at. Running.

                  The pass game…let’s just say, not pretty. There were a lot of drops, but let’s be honest… BW doesn’t throw a super catchable ball. It’s a bullet and heavy. Huge difference between his ball and Sunshine’s on the other side even though his statistics weren’t great either.

                  Some concern with the defensive secondary. Either we can’t cover or there were several assignment miscues on the backend.

                  Two really solid teams, and as a NW fan, I’m happy with the win. As a football fan, I feel a little cheated that this game had to be in week 1.

                    I’m not going to bash BW after his first start in the new offense, was he good? No. But he made plays late when we needed them. I do hope he improves this year because there is a lot of talent at WR that I don’t want to see wasted. Donadelle needs to become a priority.

                      Ever thought it might have something to do with the people, coaches, school, players, and the program????

                        I guess according to Hookem if Hays is an average team so is NW....


                        That was one heck of a ball game especially for week 1. Hays missed two field goals which impacted a lot towards the end of the game. Average starting field position for Hays was probably inside the 15, I believe they started 3 or 4 drives inside the 2 yard line! Heck of a job for NW to pin them that deep.

                        Thanks NW fans for making the trip!!

                          That was the first one of the game per radio broadcast.

                            The 2 yard line drive was due to a fumble on 4th down by NW. Less of a pin deep. :-) The 1st qtr punt was pretty nice that led to the safety though.

                              I believe they had 3 punts downed at the 1 or 2… two by Hohensee and one by Wright.. Hohensee had another inside the 15 too. Punt game was great, minus the 1 shank. That said, hopefully, we’ll see less of said punt team going forward.

                                The positives:

                                A win. Sure as heck beats the alternative. Thank god for a defense. That almost has to be perfect.
                                The D again looks salty per the M.O. since football was invented in 1994. Interesting playing a lot of coverage v. the top returning QB in the league. FH passed at a similar rate as the last meeting. It is a fool's errand to attempt to run the ball much v. NW when you are going to avg. 2 ypc. A few mistakes in coverage but fixable and FH was giving difficult looks.
                                Al is legit elite. A HR threat every time he touches the ball. If he stays healthy he is going to have a special season.
                                OL looked good.
                                Team competed their butts off. Both teams.
                                Hohensee is a weapon in the punting department

                                Now the negatives:
                                You had roughly 21 months to get rid of the cracker jack passing offense and in relation discover a QB that can complete the forward pass v. real competition.
                                There was nothing last night that made one think there has been any improvment made in either department.
                                QB1 56.5% and 4.2 ypa. 3.8 ypa as a team. At no level of football is that even remotely acceptable or playable. 3rd game with under 100yds passing in 3 years. I can only find 2 such instances prior to that back to 2004 - both blowout wins. And then only 2 designed runs for QB1? No adlib making plays running down the field on a broken passing play? Something feels off.
                                Receivers dropping passes. Same thing, different year.

                                AD leaving after 2016 has left the QB play and passing game in shambles ever since.

                                How in the heck can NW not get a WR that looks like the ones FH runs out there? 1 catch for 9 yds for Donadelle.

                                Glad NW FB is back. Looked like a carbon copy of 2019 though. Same ceiling. Ferris is giggling.
