Recap of the Army-Navy Game

Posted: December 11, 2011 in ArmyNavy, Uncategorized

Navy’s 21-27 victory of Army had the Midshipmen chanting and waving flags the read, “decade of dominance.”

Army-Navy had their 112th meeting for the first time in the vicinity of our nations capitol presented by USAA. With all the traditions and pageantry present by nature it is an unbelievable game. If president Obama came to FedEx field you know it wasn’t for a Washington Redskins game.

For eight seasons the Midshipman came into this game with a successful past; eight straight winning seasons with a bowl game ahead. However, they have neither there 112th meeting against the Black Knights. Navy’s record of 4-7 is frustrating due to losing five games by three points or less. However, their season has ended on a positive not with a victory for the 10th consecutive game against Army (3-9).

The Midshipmen rushed for their most yards against Army since 2008, Navy finished with 296 rushing yards and attempted only three passes. Their passing yardage total was their lowest since 2007.

Although the scoreboard may have read 21-27 Navy, the Blacks Knights also came out winning with moral victory in Saturday’s game. They were able to hold the Midshipmen to a six-point victory. This “decade of dominance” now stands, which is the longest stretch of supremacy by both teams maybe next year Army can snap Navy’s winning streak.

At the end of the day this is more than just football for these men. They aren’t out here for pro football try outs, they are here to just simply play the game they love. It really is the purest form of competition and fight as it gets in sports.

Washington Redskins High School Coach of the Week honors Head football Coach Patrick Kane from Hermitage High School. Coach Kane from Henrico, VA has been coaching for 11 years and has an overall record of 93-19 at Hermitage.

Coach Kane has been coaching for 20 years and accomplished much within his football coaching career. He has been named Colonial District Coach of the Year five times, Central Region Coach of the Year two times, Richmond Times Dispatch Metro Coach of the Year five times, and has also served as an NFL Summit Representative in 2002.

Hermitage Athletic director Chris Rollison says, “ Coach Kane leads by example. He works extremely hard to make sure his student-athletes are doing the right things on and off the field. He cares about his student-athletes during the season. He follows up with his student-athletes to make ensure that are taking the proper classes and staying on track with classes that will prepare them for college and post-secondary life.”

Congratulations Coach Kane!

There are a number of things that the Washington Redskins need to make sure to apply and execute in their game today to leave with a victory.

1. Pay attention to Quarterback Kevin Kolb and Larry Fitzgerald making plays. It will be difficult for the Redskins to completely close out the NFL’s best receiver, Fitzgerald but if the Redskins can limit him on catches than winning this game should be a lot easier.Not allowing him to run free is key to today’s game. Last season Kolb demonstrated that he could break through the Redskins defense when he played for Philly. However, now Kolb is able to get several looks by having Fitzgerald stay open and running the ball. DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson will both have snaps against Fitzgerald.

2. Run the ball. Today is an emotional game day for running back Tim Hightower as he competes for a win against his former team, Arizona Cardinals. Hightower has to get going. He has to improve his 2.9-yards per carry in order to overpower the Cardinals. Last gamne Hightower had little to no yardage and in some instances lost some. The offensive has to prove their strengths they polished up during the preseason.

3. The Redskins offense needs to find stability. Last week against the New York Giants quarterback Rex Grossman threw 305 passing yards. Grossman was consistent with his decision making, limited himself on forced passed and move the ball around targeting a total of six different recievers. “Sexy-Rexy” has has a past reputation of turning over the ball, fumbling and being sacked. If Grossman can remain confident and calm in the pocket than this could be a successful game for him.

Fun fact:

If Rex Grossman throws three TD passes he will reach 45 for his career.
