Forgive my ignorance, I'm not a too smart on the X's and O's. I appreciate you guys clarifying things for me.

If I'm understanding correctly, we roll this week with:

Obaje/Seymore as OLB's
Steed/Hunter as ILB's
Galindo/Kennedy as DE's
Wray/Vega platooning at DT

Will that cover it?

1. What was your biggest takeaway from your team this weekend?

It's a bit bittersweet to beat the Ponies with both Smoak and Elliot riding the pine.  But it is a division win after all, and those are as valuable as gold in the HIFL. 

Regarding how we played, I was very excited about 2 aspects - first we got Chris Allen going, and secondly we changed a few things around on defense and were able to bring a lot more pressure because of it.  Once everyone completely gels in their new locations, watch out quarterbacks!  We're comin' for ya!


2. What do you make of the news of the league's expansion?

While it is exciting that we are expanding - GLOBALLY expanding at that - I am already annoyed at the prospect of a fantasy draft....I mean, expansion draft.  I absolutely hate it that we have spent time to scout, train, and coach up these men in the locker room, only for another GM to snatch them from our roster as though contracts aren't a thing.  It's bullshit, and I hate it. 


3. Talk about this weeks opponent, and what you expect from your team?

It's going to be all out war with DC, as the winner will be in sole possession of first place in the division.  I expect the Monsters to come out with all guns blazing, and show why we are THE dominant team in this division.  PERIOD.

Another win, and now DC is without Stevens.  That opens up a lot of lanes.

That guy is a tackling machine out there.  It is a shame when anyone gets injured, but I don't think anybody in this locker room is going to shed a tear about not having to face him on the field.

Coach, I don't know what suddenly clicked in the running game, but good freakin' job!  Allen was in beast mode out there!

It sure is. The changes to the defense paid dividends too. Great job all around.

Turning the page, how do we matchup against the Cobras?

They're top 10 in almost every defensive category, so we'll have to be ready for a fight. They're 5th in rushing, last in passing.. so stopping Mixon is key.

I know a one game sample isn't much, but with our new defensive alignment, do you think we have a good shot at doing just that?
