Yeah.. Kid's not happy, but I like his fire. He wants to be great, he isn't going to settle for a lesser role, so that means he's going to push and push. Gotta respect that.

Oh yes indeed!  Got off to a great win today ladies and gentlemen of the news media. Starting the season off right with a win feels good.  But I know you guys have some questions so let's get to them.

Talk us through this week's game. What did you like, what do you want to see improved?

I loved the score! Hanging a 40 burger on any team in this league isn't easy to do because these men are all professionals. Offensively we clicked and defensively despite the yardage that was given up it wasn't until the end of the game that we gave up a TD.  I don't think any GM could say 99 yards of passing offense is something that can be sustained over the season but we had lots of short yardage situations and with the defense scoring we really didn't have possession of the ball for too long so I'm not too concerned.

What did you make of your teams performance, despite the final outcome of the game?

We executed well both offensive and defensively.  I couldn't be happier with the performance for the first game of the season.

Are there any major changes you see yourself making this week?

After a decisive week one victory? No.

Talk about at least two news stories from this week.

I could see from the GM box the coaches going back and forth with another in the game. I don't know what the intention Coach Munoz had but I was suprised to see them going for it on 4th down over and over.  I definitely let out a nice hmmm when they went for the two point conversation. But I'm not concerned with how other teams play simply how our team responds and I thought Coach Rudino was professional and exemplified Alabama football with his reaction.

I found it hilarious that a Coach had to tell anybody to relax after a week one loss.  I hope people go back and look at who made the playoffs based of a week one win or loss.

Talk to us about your match up this week.  Where do you see your opponent having an advantage? What is the key to victory?

We go on the road to face a tough division opponent in Miami.  They have a solid coaching staff and players to execute their gameplan.  Their defense is underrated as they held a Christian Sullivan offense to practically nothing but FG's.  There running attack certainly looks impressive with the inclusion of Haas which means our defense is going to have to prepare to stop the run.  If we can stop the run and force Duke to pass the ball we take them out of their comfort zone and maybe take advantage of it. 

Any other questions?

Guess Coach Munoz wanted to send a message to both his team and us.  Heard loud and clear.  But you did the right thing.  It's Atlanta and its week one. We've got bigger goals than that. I have to say the defense impressed me.  I was concerned about our CB and LB but they played well and Kroos balled out!

Wow wow wow wow. What a game. Coming back down 14 after getting hammered all day by their run game that is a great accomplishment for this team. Letís quickly get to some questions because Iím amped up.


Talk us through this week's game. What did you like, what do you want to see improved?

Well I said last week we needed to get keep their run game in check and they just hammered us over and over for huge chunks at a time. McClure had himself a game against us and they rushed for over 227 yards! But I loved that my team stayed in the game they didnít quit and when the opportunity came up they got stops when they needed to and converted on those turnovers. We may have given up the ball once but we took it from them three more times.

Through two games this season, who's surprising you for the better, and for the worst?

Lukas Kroos has really stepped up for us at LB. Through two games heís leading the team in Tackles and has two sacks and a PD to go with it. Iíd also like to praise our rookie George Vu. We had a lot of big names here at CB in the past couple of seasons and with his 6 PD and INT along with 9 tackles the rookie is showing he belongs in the league. Iím a little suprised with Jamie Ortega completion percentage but we have had more than a few drops and with the changes in the coaching department are all learning new lingo new routes and a new scheme. With that massive amount of change comes growing pains.

Which one-part of your team do you believe is only going to get better going forward?

Our passing attack will only continue to get better as we get more familiar and of course get more healthy. Weíre all wishing Oliver Giles a speedy but complete recovery.

Talk about your news story this week.

I really wouldnít call it a story and I also wouldnít call it true. That OT win was huge and couldnít be ďovershadowedĒ by a ďblowupĒ. Our coaches are passionate and Jamie Ortega can match their passion step for step. What you saw was a discussion about the game. A game WE WON. Iíd rather them blow up on each other than not care about the result of the game.

Talk about at least two other news stories this week.

I wonder how many people that went after Berry and made him look like a criminal will do the same for the Miami coaching staff for putting a concussed player back on the field.

Berry feels betrayed and he should. Now I donít know what conversations they had but I do know GM Gates didnít appeal which I found odd. He also didnít respond to numerous GMs who called out Berry. I donít know Berry so I canít defend or accost him but GM Gates went a message loud and clear - those GMs were right.

As for Duke I hope he wasnít concussed and still playing the game. I hope itís just him trying to find an excuse for his performance but if he was concussed then he had no business being on that field. Football is dangerous enough. You need all your faculties to perform at the highest level and his coaching staff did him a disservice by putting him on the field handicapped.

Talk to us about your match up this week, how do you build on last weeks success?

The Kings are struggling right now to find an identity. We need to hone ours because as we just saw with Portland and Rapid City there is no such thing as a gimme in the HIFL. We need to continue to execute and practice our schemes till it almost becomes like muscle memory. If we can do that against Music City that will only benefit us later in the season.

Agreed on all fronts Coach but in the end win is a win. Coach not that I want to make a big deal out of what happened on the sidelines but I do want to get some context around it. Where in the moment did it happen and in your eyes is it something that could carry over or was it left there?

Hey man, you know me.  I am a fiery guy.  When I see my quarterback struggling and he comes pouting off of the field in a tie game in the 4th quarter, I'm not going to sit there and let it slide.  I told him to get his ass back on the field.. 4th and 10, tie game at the Miami 34... We're freaking goin' for it.. just to prove a point.

After we didn't get the first down and gave the ball back, Redd heard him saying something as he came off the field and had a word with him.. he wasn't ready to drop it, so they had it out right there.

Was it a good look? No, but the guy needs to know this isn't the soft, push-over Henry Munoz regime, we have a higher standard.

Thanks for letting me know that Coach Rudino. I appreciate the insight. Let me talk with both Coach McAvoy and Jamie to get the full picture just for my benefit.

óóóó

Blue letís talk to Coach McAvoy.

Coach McAvoy tough game we had but we managed to get the win. I just wanted some context to the heated debate that took place on the sidelines. Just wanting to get the full picture.

  Aye Aye, Sir.   Late in the game Coach told me he wanted to go for it on 4th and long... said he needed to send a message to the team that we weren't going to settle for mediocre play or poor attitudes. 

After we turned the ball over on downs, I saw coaching say something to Ortega, after which I heard Ortega venting his frustration with some "choice words" for the Coach after he had walked away.  I confronted him, reminding him that he was to respect the senior coaching staff at all times, particularly during the course of the game. 

He said some things back to me, telling me to stay out of it, to which I reminded him that I was his offensive coordinator and he owed me the same respect.  I told him I would not tolerate insubordination behavior and we had a heated conversation about it.

Afterwards we went back to work and handled our business.

Thanks Coach McAvoy. I appreciate you giving your whole story. If you donít mind Iíll soeak with Jamie now.

óó

Blue can we call Jamie Ortega into the office?

óó

Jamie first of all hell of a comeback. We didnít want to be down in the first place but we responded and responded off the strength of your arm. Now I know the media would rather focus on the drama on the sidelines than an actual victory but I want to gain some context to what happened out there from your perspective.

I understand Jamie. So for you it wasnít a game plan thing but it was a respect issue. What I want to say is I appreciate you and I appreciate the coaching staff for putting that aside and getting the victory anyways.

I understand with so much change happening in the off season especially with the coaching staff that their will be growing pains. A feeling out process so to say. People need to figure out each otherís boundaries. Heíll its not just xís and oís but how to communicate as well.

I know I can speak to my personal life and speak with my friends in manners most people would consider both appealing and sometimes would lead to fights. But because we had that trust we always could settle everything down and still have a beer.

So while Coach Rudino and Coach McAvoy May be new I hope I have enough trust built with you over the three years Iíve been here that I can say the coaches just want whatís best for us to win. But if it ever goes beyond coaching and you feel itís getting personal. Talk to me.

Another victory for us here in Alabama.  This is the third week in a row we score at least 30 points in a game.  Now let's get to specifics though

Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

Dominated in almost every way. First Downs. 3rd Down Efficiency. Rushing Yards and attempts. Time of Possession and of course limited to one penalty.  What went wrong is an untimely injury at CB made us very vulnerable to their passing attack.  They didn't get many passing attempts off but when they did they went for big yardage gains.  It's only week 3 of the season though and our secondary was playing a man down.

How do you feel about the emergence of the Alliance of American Football and the XFL?

Competition is always a good thing. It forces us to do our best. A monopoly renders people complacent and satisfied with mediocrity and Alabama is never satisfied with complacency or mediocrity. We've already been through something like this with the APL.

Talk about something going on around the league this season that has interested you in one way or another.

This is certainly a great time to be alive but I'm looking at the situation in Las Vegas and I'm showing a growing concern.  You've got former employees speaking on current players and current players getting involved with the law.  I hear a lot of ticking and that is never a good sign in our business.  I'm definitely keeping my eye on that.

Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

Charlotte is a very tough team to play.  Christian Sullivan still is the same talented QB that lead DC to back to back championships.  Luigi Lewis was a very talented receiver for me in Long Beach and here in Alabama. John Spurgeon is a serious threat in the backfield.  On the defensive side they have Diego Brown and any Alabama fan can tell you what he is capable of. The key to victory will be keeping this offense at the same pace it has been scoring in bunches and the defense will have to keep all those offensive weapons in check. These expansion teams are no pushovers and we have to prepare for a very competitive game.

Luckily for us, Spurgeon is out for 2 weeks in Charlotte... Although DeAngelo Neuman looks like he's found the fountain of youth so far this year.

Not that I cherish in the pain of others but Spurgeon being out does please me. I certainly didnít want to raise any eyebrows in the media but the defense does somewhat concern me. We seem to have adopted a bend but donít break approach but that was a hell of a lot of bending we did against Music City.

Also George possibly being out or impaired at minimum has me thinking we need to make a move in the secondary. First, whatís the plan if worst case George is out and how comfortable are you with that plan?

If Vu is out, we're pushing Lambert into a starting role, Cheatham takes the nickle, and we pray we don't lose another corner....

Hopefully they are up to the task. Looks like Ortega responded well after that sideline incident he balled out against Music City. Good to see him and Robles go off at the same time.

So so close and yet came up just that short. A blowout can feel like a sharp sting but a close game like feels like a stomach punch. Makes it that much harder to swallow defeat.


Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

It was a close game at the end but it didnít start that way. I want to give credit to the coaching staff and the players because we were down 21 to 10 at the half and on the road. The right adjustments got made and we took the lead in the 4th. Just a shame things ended up where we couldnít keep it. As for what went wrong I donít like seeing our defense giving up big plays. That was the 3rd 60+ yard TD our defense has allowed over the past two games. 

Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most so far this season?

Considering they are our next opponent and they sit as one of two undefeated teams I am pleasantly surprised by the Orlando Stampede. When I say Iím pleasantly suprised I mean that the talent that has always been there is now thriving. Thats good for us because playing tough competition will get us ready for tough competition. My goal for this team is to compete at the highest level. The more often we see that competition the better prepared we are for it.

With where you sit in the standings, do you feel it is a true reflection of your team? Where do you feel you should stand, and who on your team is most responsible for your current standing?

The standings are what they are because of how we perform on the field. We play to win the game. If we donít win we didnít play it well. Simple as that. No excuses. Right now we are a game out from the best record in the east and our division. For now that will have to do. As for the player most responsible Iíll give the credit to Luis Gustafson and his leg. Heís the one who kicked it through the uprights.


What has been the biggest challenge for your team so far this season, and who would you say was your teams' most improved?

The biggest challenge has been adjusting to the off season changes especially the coaching staff. It isnít easy to implement a whole new system. Get guys to commit to that system. Then be able to execute that system week after week. It was a big ask from me to the team but so far they have risen to the challenge and are improving every week at a high level. As far as whose the most improved on the team - coming out of camp we thought Timothy Cobbs had an extra step and this season he has shown so far the he is the top dog out of ĎCerberusí.

Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

We are not at full strength in our secondary and we are about to face a brilliant mind in Merv Patton. Keeping him in check is always a tough ask but itís gotten tougher. Our defense plays well but we have to keep Orlando from breaking off a big one and not allow them to build momentum of the big gain plays. Weíve gotten into to big a habit of making a second half comeback. Iíd like to trounce on most teams from beginning to end you know what Iím saying?

Sorry I'm late, my tattoo removal took longer than expected..  I couldn't go around with "Property of DeAngelo Neuman" tattooed on my ass forever, hopefully the rest of the team did the same with their off-day...  Jesus Christ, man.

I left mine on hoping it would send notice to other teams not to do the same to us! Offensively we seem to be clicking and progressing but defensively despite still being decent in ppg is just giving up big plays far too often. Is it a tackling issue a health issue or a talent issue?

Tackling is a talent, so I'd say it's both of those man.. Going from Kirk and Botts to Vu, Lambert, and McClintock is just a real tough sell.

Yeah I hear you Coach Rudino. I'm working the phones seeing what's out their and at what price. For now we just have to try and deal with what we have.

Still for the first quarter of the season we do have a lot to be happy about. I mean this is the first week we haven't had an Alabama player named as player of the week.

The offense is gaining yards and putting up points and we're still not at full strength.

Sorry about that coach I was thinking out loud.  Didn't mean to take up more of your time. Thank you Coach Rudino.

Blue can we get Raul Darnell in our office

Raul! Thanks for coming by. I wanted to say I appreciate your leadership on the OL. You've held that group together and collectively you guys have only given up two sacks.  In addition to that you and Lloyd are having remarkable individual seasons, I mean your leading the team with 27 pancakes through 4 games!  Is it fair to assume that in this option driven offense you guys are getting to move a lot more and put people on their butts?

Yeah man, we're getting to build some momentum on these tosses and options and it's resulting in some big hits.

Thatís good to hear Raul.

óóóó

Coach Rudino looks like the buses are warming up. At this point an improvement canít be made so we have to make due for now. Hopefully those injured will be able to play.
