Understood.  Thanks for your time coach.

Ms. Dossey let's go ahead and lock in.

Lock in

Got it...any idea why our running game is struggling?

Right.  I appreciate your commitment.

Ms. Dossey, can I speak with Coach Rhodes please.

Coach, would you be able to tell me the percentage of run plays that come from the shotgun?

I appreciate your efforts to help the team.  With that being said...would you want to decrease your usage on either side of the ball or do you feel you can handle a full load on both sides?

Let me talk to Alfred and think on it a little bit.  I will get back to you with my decisions, thanks for your time coach.

Ms. Dossey, Alfred Glass please.

Alfred, first of all, a fantastic performance last week.  You stepped up big time and lead us to victory.  With that being said, I know your brushed off the media chatter about being fatigued, but I want to know how you really feel?  Asking you to play both ways is a lot and I want to make sure you are protected and do not want you to feel like your overworked or anything like that.

Understood. So keep him both ways but reduce his offensive workload?

I might be going to the extreme here....but do you think we'd be fine against Jersey going with Molina and Schuster and playing Alfred strictly on offense?

It was indeed a good win.  Let's go ahead and address the elephant in the room, is it too much for him to play both ways?

Alfred showed his abilities this past week and they helped us to victory.  Myself and the coaches will make decisions that put our team in the best possible situation to win.  With that being said, I will not do it at the expense of a player's health.  Therefore I will consult with the coaches and with Alfred about our plans going forward.

1. What was your biggest takeaway from your game this week?

We were able to grind the entire game and get the victory.  We started off fast, then let them back, but we managed to continue to play our game.  I think that's a testament to the fight our team has in it.  I was very proud of our effort.

2. Talk about your news this week and at least two news stories you found interesting.

Alfred did it all this past week.  He stepped up big and helped out his team when they needed it.  J-Reb getting fired in the middle of the season sucks, but so has his performance to its not a shock.  Luck E. Charms is selling the Tulsa Celtics....not sure why he started a team in Tulsa anyways.

3. With 6 games to play, how do you feel about your job security?

I feel good.  That guy TJ left this organization in bad shape, but we have managed to collectively come together as an organization and right the ship.  We made the playoffs last year in my first season and we are on track to do so again this season.  We still have a lot of work to do, but I love the guys that bust their ass every week out on the field, I love this organization, and I love this city.

4. Talk about your opponent this week, what do you expect them to do and how do you win this game?

GM Stark has put together a solid team over there in New Jersey have GM Kirk shit on them.  They are a tough squad and we are going to have to bring our A game this week.
 We have to just continue to play our game the we way have been and execute and we will win.

Makes sense, I know he doesn't usually play that much so it was a little confusing.

Charlotte is hit or miss so far this season.  You think our defense will be able to keep them in check?

I will not argue with that idea. Let's make it happen.  Also, any particular reason Coates was our leading receiver this past week?

1. What was your biggest takeaway from your game this week?

That we can win a game without scoring an offensive touchdown. It's not ideal, but we proved that we can win games in different ways if need be.

2. Are you concerned with the XFL/AAF merger and the rumor of bigger market cities investing in teams to rival the HIFL?

No.  I've always said that competition is a great thing and I maintain that stance.

3. What is the biggest shocker from the trade deadline week?

How cheap GM Jon got Back for.

4. In order to win this week, which player needs to have a big day?

We need a big day from John Carr.  It's no secret that our offensive has struggled pretty much all season, but John has been to three straight conference championships so I think his veteran leadership and experience will takeover and help us make progress on offense.  We will need it because we won't be able to win every game without scoring on offense.

No problem, go ahead and get to practice because we need you to get acclimated as quickly as possible.

Ms. Dossey, please hold all calls.

GM Justin closes the door to his office.  He walks back to his desk, sits down and bows his head

"Jesus, I come to you in prayer in hopes that you can help our team...specifically our wide receivers.  I know that I am not a perfect person and have sinned in the past, but I am hoping that you can bless the team on this one.  Our receivers are having the hardest time catching and holding onto the football, they can dropping the dang thing.  Jesus, I need you to be our guiding light, be the glue on the hands our guys need to catch the ball.  In your name I pray, Amen."

I appreciate the honesty coach, that's exactly what I expect from the coaching staff.  I will let you get back to practice.

Ms. Dossey, can you get me in touch with Michael Griswold....

Michael, welcome to Oakland.  I'm looking for you to bring some consistency to our receiving group and am going to give you your shot as the #1 receiver.

Ok.  I spoke with Coach Hall about this a couple of weeks ago, but want to get your input.  Do you think we should stay with Carr or make the move to Hudgins?

Thanks coach.  I will get back to you when we lock in.

Ms. Dossey, can you get me Coach Rhodes please.

Coach, wasn't able to address our receiver problem like I wanted to, but with the addition of Griswold, is he our new #1 receiver?

General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM : OAKLAND SILVERBACKS
« on: March 27, 2019, 08:13:03 AM »




Well coach, I had a deal in place for a top receiver, but their GM pulled out of the deal. With that being said, we've added Griswold, which I'm hoping will at least bring some type of consistency.  I'm thinking our game against St. Louis will be a defensive battle, which I feel good about it.  Do you have any major concerns with this game?

Yes, sir absolutely!

Ms. Dossey, I am working on a couple of things and before I make anything final can I please receive the financial check-in to make sure everything aligns?  I think the way the league credits retained salary might be different from my accounting method so I want to be sure we match the league.

1. What was your biggest takeaway from your game this week?

That we have to figure out something on offense....and do it fast.

2. With your record at mid-season, how would you grade the first half of Season 11 for your franchise based on your pre-season expectations?


I think we are underperforming at the moment.  We started of hot, but have lost three in a row.  Our defense has played great, but lately with our offense sputtering they have had to be on the field too long.  If we are going to get back to the playoffs and win the division like I think we should, we are going to have to get our shit together fast.

3. At mid-season, which of your players would you consider an underrated performer who deserves more recognition?

I believe Alan Molina has really stepped up his level of play this year, which is evident in his number of PDs.  He has done a good job of limiting the big plays, which gave up a few last year as a rookie.  I think he has gotten comfortable with the game and it's slowing down for him and it is showing in his level of play.

4. Three weeks before the All-Star game, who do you believe is a lock from your team to be selected for the game?

I believe De la Rosa and Chandler are locks.  Roy Roberts, Molina, and Milliken should get consideration.  Barbour should be considered and Britt and Ortiz should be locks.

5. With the trade deadline upon us, do you see your team as a buyer, a seller, or neutral?  ...and what is it you are looking for on the trade market?

We have to get our offense on track, so if that means deals have to be made, then so be it.

You're absolutely right.  Just wanted to check in on you.  I will let you get back to practice to get ready for Seattle.

George, checking in on you and the offensive line.  How are you and the guys doing?

Ok, before we make a decision on that, I have another question. Can Glass play both ways? Could he play receiver and catch the ball?
