    Very little room for error by Salem. Missing two offensive linemen and quarterback. Northside loading box. Northside pretty good. Salem has soooo many limitations

    I predicted 7-3 and people said I was crazy. I said Salem had very few playmakers and some said I was crazy. Well turns out I'm not crazy. Ok .maybe a little. But it turns what I said about this team was accurate. Salem is a 7-3 or 6-4 football team. Too young, not explosive. Wish I had been wrong

    Have a feeling next weeks game against Blacksburg is going to be a repeat of their first meeting last year. I would say 6-4 at best. Even if their starting QB is back, don't think that will be enough. Salem is in dire need of a mobile QB to take pressure off R-backs and Receivers.

    A 2-3 Salem will be a joy to my eyes if it happens

    If Salem gets healthy, I expect they will mature. Indicative of Salem program. I am curious where the other losses will come from if they are going to be 6-4? Pulaski, LB or WB?

    They only play Pulaski of those teams. They could do it and Blacksburg too. I could also see PH causing some issues

    What was the score of the scrimmage? Doesn’t mean a lot, but just curious

    I wish you would just STOP! Your negativity drives me crazy. No playmakers? #20, #17, #3 look pretty good to me. I recall last year hearing this same crap after the Blacksburg game. Northside had a good plan. Salem did not execute. I think #32 needs to play more defense. Defense needs to tighten up and play disciplined. They will improve.

    Don't you worry. Salem will be back. If not this year next. And you will still be a Byrd fan---a historically irrelevant program on the state level

    Blacksburg scored once on a long pass , blown coverage .Northside has a good oline, and qb, and a couple good wr. They looked good on D too, but was the first scrimmage , means nothing .

    For you, when Salem is 2-3, you weep.

    For us, when Byrd is 2-3, it's just Tuesday.

    Not negative. Realist. They will get better. But unfortunately my analysis has been proven accurate. Your evaluation is inflated to say the least. #20 is doing a great job and shows a lot of promise. However, there has been little or no help coming from the receivers. 80# shows promise.

    Salem will be back by playoff time. This is just a hiccup probably from a rough game last week both mentally and physically. They were not ready for Northside but Northside was ready for them so congrats to Northside.

    3,6,9,11,80. I think we can find some play makers in the passing game

    Inflated?? You have no idea. I'm a realist, but I know the team's potential. I've watched these kids grow up and play and I know what they are capable of doing. You can't reach your full potential with sloppy play and poor execution. The potential is there. Perhaps they need someone to believe in them instead of pegging them with 3 or four losses before the season even started.

    I feel like Northside is legitimately a better team all-around regardless of injuries or last weeks game. Salem is still a quality team and they are going to get better but Northside just has more things they can do at a high level.

    None of the receivers are getting separation. 80 by far shows most promise. 20 is almost carrying the entire load offensively. Salem right now is one dimensional. Defense has been inconsistent. Leadersvneed to step up. Important play tonight , Salem driving and after long run by 20, 17 picks up personal foul. Big change in momentum. Probably got caught retaliating, but that was a big big turnaround

    Don't disagree with you about the personal foul. Pass protection needs to improve. Defense needs to improve. Please stop saying you know they're going to lose. It irritates me.

    Have not said "I know theyre going to lose" I have realistically pointed out their weaknesses. I believe after four games it's been obvious that those weaknesses have cost us two ball games. I said before the season that those weaknesses would probably cost us three. Now im hoping it wont be four. We will get better, but we have limitations this year. They will be tough to overcome. As to irritating you---dont care

    Saying a team will be 7-3 or 6-4 is the same as saying you know they will lose. I'm sure there are others annoyed by your pessimism.

    Three really good teams. I feel like WB matches up a lot better with LB than Northside but we'll see how it all plays out.

    You act like these are back and forth. Our past 4 years have been 6-4, 10-2, 9-2, and 4-0 so far. I’m not trying to compare to Salem. I’d be a fool to do that. All I was saying earlier is that it is good to see a shakeup in the Area. I respect the crap out of Salem and what they do. A lot more than other teams in the area.

    Soph #80 might be one of the best players on the field for Salem. He’s not alone though for the underclassmen. Lots to look forward to this season and the next to come!

    Ky'Juan is a really good DE. He will probably be pulled up to Varsity by the end of the year.

    They have a lot of youth and inexperience at spots, injury bug has bitten them a little bit, and they have played 2 really good teams the last 2 weeks. They have a lot of potential and hopefully by the end of the year they'll put all the pieces of the puzzle together and play to their capability.
