This was like a carbon copy of last year’s road win against Dartmouth. We clearly dominated for three quarters but a few bonehead plays and loss of intensity let both teams back in the game. In both cases it took a last minute sack to ice the game.

Yes precisely, that is what I meant by: a win is a win. As you said, it is worth noting that in our strong season last year, we had sloppy wins like Dartmouth. No telling what next week will bring, but I am happy with this victory and it is a cause to celebrate being 2-0. As Parcellls likes to say "you are as good as your record says you are."

Al rightfully was pretty unhappy about the lack of focus and intensity after we went up 23-0 and there were only 8 minutes to play. I think our guys had one foot on the bus door at that point. Al was also unhappy about settling for FGs in the first half when we could have turned it into a blow out early. But I also give a lot of credit to Georgetown. Coming off a bad game at Dartmouth they could have quit by the fourth quarter and did not do so. Negatives for me were two or three more starters going down, hopefully only for one week, mediocre pass blocking, loose pass defense, some passes that never should have been thrown, a rare mistake by Will Allen in choosing to run back a late kickoff instead of taking a knee, failure of the DBs to play the ball despite tight coverage. Positives were Alleyne’s kicking, Ronald Smith, the sacks by the DEs, and the tandem rushing effort by Rose and Miller. I also liked the incorporation of the TEs in the pass game.

I agree that there were sone passes that should not have been thrown by Davis, and that, overall, he could have had a better game. But when his passes worked they were very precise and were just where they needed to be for the receiver to make the play. So not bad for a first start for a sophomore. Does anyone know when Bean comes back from concussion?

With regards to Bean, I would say that it all depends on the physician making that decision. It clearly isn't the doctor that traveled with the team to Central Connecticut. Bean was knocked unconscious in that game yet was still allowed to return to play. Then, we find out on Sunday that he is in the concussion protocol. Whoever cleared him to go back in that night should be ashamed of themselves and most likely elongated the amount of time that he will miss.
