Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Both teams prevailed in high scoring games tonight. What does MW need to do to maintain their undefeated record? And what does Franklin need to do to slow down MWs high scoring offense? Good luck.

Go Rams!!!

Montwood will win this one. However, the defense will have to step up. Go back to fundamentals. Go to 4-4 instead of 3-5 or whatever it is the DC is running. Defensive ends need to contain, instead of cheating in to make the sack and getting burned on the outside.

I haven't seen Franklin play this year. It will be interesting as all district games tend to be. My prediction - Montwood 56- franklin 21

Montwood was up 55-33 in the 3rd quarter before the 2’s and 3’s went in. Imagine if the ones stayed in it till the end, yes food for thought!!!

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Our second string will be ready if needed.They put in the work and get to play. I as a parent don't care if we win 52-0 or 52-51 a win is a win.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

None of that matters anyway. Franklin beat Midland worst than Desoto did this year that means Franklin and Desoto will be a great game. Lol no!

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Good luck Montwood whichever squad your coaches deside to play hope to see some great football Thursday night!

Agree ! We got to give credit to those kids on defend. They are coming up with some key stops and making plays.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Well I hope they play 3rd and 4th quarter on Thursday.

I think FHS needs to pound #21 and try and keep that MHS offense off of the field as much as possible.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

They need to keep Montwood off the field and score on every drive. Thats the key to beat Montwood.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

RB Seth Dominguez won't be enough to beat the Rams. And the Cougars need to play all-around defense and not just focus on one player.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

I do think we must make other guys beat us other than #1 and #4. Montwood will score regardless but put pressure on other guys to make the big plays.

Montwoods defense is doing good, you guys are just comparing it to the Offense caliber. Actually Montwoods Linebacker #35 is in the 1-6A top 3 Leader in Tackles.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Game Day bby!!!! Montwood ready to feast on some Cougar meat tonight! Good luck to both teams. Go Rams!!!

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Let's GOOOOOOOOOO Rams! Good luck to our coaches and players. Praying for a safe, injury free game for all.

What did you think? Great team effort tonight by the rams.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

The Rams escaped with a hard fought victory tonight against the Franklin Cougars. And without reservation, I take my hat off to the Cougars for making it a very competitive game and for not giving up. They literally fought it out to the very end. Overall, it was a great game between two very good teams.

Man I was pleased with the adversity they faced when Andrew went down and his little bro stepped up with 2 td’s of himself. I keep trying to give the defense credit and they do get it done when they need to, but the secondary is out weekest link. They can stop the run fairly well but the secondary makes to many mental errors and they need to really evaluate themselves. Overall Montwood did very well and a win is a win, on to Thunderbird Stadium next week. Good job boys!

Cats, Andrew didn't go down, his nursing a sore ankle from last week.
Defense is making their key stops, but remember, you cant expect a shutout. Secondary had 2 interceptions.

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

Congrats to our Rams but in no way are they ready for the playoffs with that defense. Good thing the playoffs are not tomorrow and there are more regular season games left to work on the defense.

Whats your suggestion MHS_Rams?

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

I wasn't going to mention the horrible calls that were made by the Refs last night. Hope they can fix it and start calling cleaner games for all teams. Also I have to take my hat off for the performance from Jason our back up QB great job and great win. Congratulations to the Montwood Rams they're 6-0. And great game by the Franklin Cougars who look very good on both sides of the ball.

Rams: The word ESCAPED is questionable? Other than Franklin scoring first, Montwood took command and tempo of the ENTIRE game .

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

I was at the game and Montwood did not take command of anything. Franklin had the momentum but their receiver I believe it was number #16 or #18 dropped a pass for easy TD. That was the turning point. Montwood did escape. Montwoods defense has alot and I mean alot of holes that they better fix or else they will be eliminated in the first round of the Texas State playoffs no matter who they play.

Dads of Montwood defensive players don't get so easily offended. Just look at all the points teams are putting up on Montwood.

There will come game where Montwoods offense will not score over 20 points and Montwoods defense will have to pull out the W because in the Texas state playoffs defense wins championships.

If any person is offended by this in any way as if I am targeting your team then you dont know squat about football and all you know is drama and how to argue nonsense. Football championships ate not won by hope, being optimistic, and other nonsense. Championships in the playoffs are won by defenses and Montwood has lots amd lots of holes or rather I say weak spots.

Has Montwood shutout any teams this season or atleast held a couple of teams under 2 touchdowns???

Rock,
What do you suggest the d coordinator change to fix these issues?

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

It was back and forth. Franklins offense had it going on, great passing game. Unfortunate for the QB that receivers dropped key passes that definitely would have had 2 TDs on the board and that one by TD #3 that got called back. Those 21 points could have left Rams w a loss. #8 for Franklin giving up another 4 points in 2 point conversions was painful and needed for Franklin. Montwood offense gave Franklin a hard time throughout. FHS, what happenedbto basic D fundamentals? True that refs calls were painful for Franklin and a few for Montwood...overall, it was a good fight and I see both teams bringing it for the remainder of season.

Your drop passes were cause by hard hits, your 2 point conversions were stopped by the Linebackers. The Ref's will always be Ref's, both sides on that one.

Another example of how our Defense can make the key Stops. Good job Ram D .

Re: Week 7: (2-3) Franklin Cougars Vs. (5-0) Montwood Rams

One more thing I wanted to say is how great our second string QB played yesterday first half.

I don't know what Spectstor will reply but as for me Montwood did all of that which you say and after all that great and superb Montwood defense that you speak of Franklin was still able to post 34 points. If you can't see the issue with Montwoods defense like everyone else is saying then you need to buy this book and many other books thereafter and then go to several clinics. Don't rely on Madden for your knowledge.

Yes he did awesome! I like watching him play when he gets a chance. Hopefully these next couple of games the defense can step it up and play some hard nose fundamental football. The Pebble Hills game will be their biggest test I think, I’ve watched them twice already and they’re fast, attack the ball and block well. Montwood will win this game, but the defense will be tested and we’ll see what they’re made of. But before that Coronado next on the plate! Go Rams!
