    Sweet backwards tumble over the boards by 91 coming off the field. Good thing he doesn’t have a neck of he might of broken it.

    I’ve been bad…I’m in the penalty box. Had a great view for that. Quite the tumble.

  3. trentondevilsfan Says:

    Fun half. finally figured the key to the kickoff is to squibb it, otherwise it”s going all the way back…

  4. Titans04 Says:

    I wonder what their kicker and our dbacks do for a living?

  5. trentondevilsfan Says:

    Lol! Amen……

  6. trentondevilsfan Says:

    Eventuallly they’ll get a stop………

  7. trentondevilsfan Says:

    There is something shiny at midfield…… right on the logo…

  8. Titans04 Says:

    Nice to see Rich take the coach to task right at the final whistle, the head coach wasn’t much classier. That shiny thing was Erie’s #9 9mm that had fallen out a few plays earlier.

  9. steelgameday Says:

    I asked Steel head coach Rod Miller about the gestures as well…check out the video.

  10. trentondevilsfan Says:

    i actually missed the gesture. Fun game, one stop along the way would’ve made the difference. Can’t wait to see the new turf.
