The Blues are struggling and the Pack seems to be rolling.  It has been a strange year, do the Blues have a chance to keep this close?  Will the Pack finally put together a complete game?

I’ve not been to every game like some have, but it seems to me the turnovers are the biggest issue.  The coaching staff is new, and it does seem that they do make adjustments throughout the games.  I’d like to see Ridgeview run more screens and short to intermediate passes.  Let the wide outs do the heavy lifting,  Beavers and Hill in open space will be a secondary’s nightmare.

For whatever reason beavers and hill always seem to be on the same side and on the short side of the field.  Seems a waste to me to bunch them up on the short side.  Give them space

The pack will most definitely win this game. Richlands struggles are far from over, even if Ridgeview comes out slow they will still name the score. I’m gonna take the pack by 21+

Staff doesn't fully understand spacing and how to best utilize their toys.  They actually make it easy, by formation, to align coverage.  You absolutely need to utilize motion and shifts to confuse the defense.  Don’t utilize Beavers in the slot or inside which limits his route options.  Hill is built for short and intermediate routes but can go get it deep.  Counts should win every single coverage situation he is in.   Against Lee, they lined up all three on the same side in a bunch and left #4 WR in single coverage.  Why?  Switch the #4 WR with Counts or Beavers and get that single coverage, or, better yet....motion someone out of the bunch and across the formation.

I’ll be interested to see if we see Brown move to QB and run the wildcat going forward. 

Is that an adjustment or are they bailing on their offensive scheme?  I understand he is their best weapon.  Can he throw or are they just giving up the passing attack?

You took the words out of my mouth.  I ask the same question week after week.  Why?

They went to it in the 4th against Bluefield and actually scored. Brown threw a couple passes in there, too. He used to be a QB until he got to varsity, so he’s not unfamiliar with what to do. 
 

Who knows. Maybe they go back to Simmons.

From what I seen against Bluefield there is little to no drop off in passing ability from Simmons to Brown. However I never really seen them throw a deep ball.

Might be an improvement?

Ridgeview has a "#4" receiver that can be just as talented and good with the ball in his hands. As an added bonus he will move from his stance and actually block on running plays or run a route when he knows he's not getting the ball. I've said it previously and I'll say it again, until Ridgeview coaching staff and players start doing a better job of spreading the ball around and quit trying to force it to one or two players they will never beat the top tier teams.

I initially agreed with your response but I went back and studied the film.  Ridgeview does spread it around and they don’t pass it like everyone thinks they do.  The debate is if they spread it around correctly.
Total touches to include pass targets:

Hill (14), Hartsock (11), Profit (11), O’Quin (8), Ratliff (6), Beavers (5), Honaker (3), Counts (3) and 1 attempt was undetermined who the target was.  Ridgeview ran the ball 44 times and passed 18.  What sticks out to me is Beavers, Counts and Honaker account for only 11 touches/ targets combined.

Beavers should be touching the ball a minimum of 15 times a game. Same for Hill.  The rest will depend on what defenses are doing each week.

After 4 games RV has a yardage breakdown of 51% Run 49% pass you cant get much more balanced than that.

2 most impressive stats behind that is a 66% complexation percentage on the year and a 13.2 yard Average per pass ATTEMPT (20.1 per completion)

In my opinion if RV can eliminate the turnovers they will be a tough out for anyone

I think Ridgeview comes away with the win regardless, but Richlands' ability to defend the pass will determine how close the final score is. I think Richlands will get a few yards on the ground this week too.

RV doesn't get the ball to Counts enough either, he is a mismatch against most defenders.   Beavers touches the ball 10% of the time....but RV has never really featured him.  Not sure why.  I think this year the run game is much better so they should run the ball more.  If they run into a defense that can shut that down they have a pretty good passing game to fall back on.  I'd like to see more intermediate passes mixed in but they do mix it up pretty well.
