Game 10: Pre-Game Notes

6:05 PM — Inactives include DB’s Brandon Clarke and Chris Pollard. Newly signed DB Desmond Maul will play. Matt Leotti also out this week…Will Blanden nowhere to be found.

Also, I spoke to E.J. Nemeth before today’s game…here are his comments:

On not overlooking Harrisburg — “Me personally, I try to never look past anybody. It also helps that I have a lot of former teammates on Harrisburg, so whether they’re 0-10 or 10-0, they’re never going to get overlooked by me. Defensively, they’ve played pretty well against us, but offensively they’ve had their struggles. To me, it’s always just another game, another game to win. At the end of the day, I try to tell these guys, when I walk into work on Monday people don’t ask me about how I did, it’s ‘Did you win?’ Luckily, more often than not, I’ve been able to say yes. The main focus is just to go out there and win every game, and we’ve been doing well. Defensively, we struggled last week, but it’s one game and I know they’re going to come back and do good things this week.”

On Trenton being a streaky team, and how to avoid falling into another losing streak — “I think we all kind of went back and looked at the film and saw some breakdowns we might have had. Offensively, we had a touchdown called back and we got stopped on downs. So offensively, we need to look at doing our job. Their job is to score and put up points, but our job is to score and put up points too. We got stopped twice, and if we don’t get stopped twice, we win. It’s not what the defense did, it’s not what the special teams did, it’s about what offensively we should do and we can do. We’ve been able to do some good things this year. In practice this week, I think we fixed the problems and communication issues, and I expect big games out of all three phases today.”
