Hawgs back on top – but still have a ways to go

Montgomery MartyThe mighty Hawgs are back on top this week and Captain Kirk Cousins’ late touchdown pass gave this Buckin’ Bronco some hope for the season.
But the ‘Skins still need a better defensive scheme - some of that Packers “Nitro” might be good. We definitely got the personnel for it.
Meanwhile, two tough games are coming up for Hawgs fans. We win one of these two and watch out, NFL.
In high school action this week the High n’ Mighty thinks something mighty strange is going on.
Only three games were competitive - and only one was settled by one point. Blow outs ruled last week with Quince Orchard beating Clarksburg like a red-headed stepchild. The clock was spinning more than running.
A couple of teams have byes this week, so it’s going to be a light week - which might be good. Maybe a week of rest will help out.
For the rest of the teams out there, quit playing “Madden” and start playing some real football. At least learn how to stop the off-tackle run.
There’s a few good games this week so keep your fingers crossed:

The Mighty Hawgs will rule – with Captain Kirk at the helm

Montgomery MartyThe Big Dog likes to eat, and this week he did okay - going 14-3 in the first week of the high school football season.
But that ain’t what’s got Mighty Marty beatin’ his chest with pride.
The ‘Skins are about to start their latest season with high hopes and as sure as Marty loves a good stogie and a Jimmie cone, he knows with Captain Kirk firing missiles for the Hawgs, the sky is the limit this season.
Now the High n’ Mighty cannot figure out for the life of him what Dan the computer salesman is thinking when he doesn’t offer the kid a decent contract. But that’s what happens when computer nerds own NFL franchises.
Marty’s distaste for Dan Snyder aside, he can’t wait to kick back and enjoy another season of NFL football.
And this week he cannot escape the fun that will happen on Friday night with his favorite Damascus team.
Take a look:

Marty cries in his beer over the Terps and loves Damascus

Montgomery MartyThe Basso Profundo is back with a good cigar and Jimmie Cone ready to tackle the high school football season.
He and his new Labrador named “Covfefe” is thinking this might be one of the most exciting seasons of football in recent memory.
Nothing is more Bigly than high school football, so let’s get going with this week’s fun and frolics.
But before he does Marty wants to take the Redskins to task for dissing Captain Kirk Cousins. The Redskins ain’t never gonna be nuthin’ if they don’t start treating this young man like he’s something.
The Hawgs have one of the best quarterbacks in the league and they treat him like he’s playing semi-pro ball in Pittsburgh.
That stuff has to stop folks. Big Dan Snyder needs to grow up and invest in the future of his football team or the future will forget he ever existed.
The Big Dog wants to howl:

Former Washington Redskins All-Pro offensive tackle Chris Samuels is joining the football program at Churchill High School.

Samuels, who served a two-year stint as the head coach at Osbourn High School in Northern Virginia, has been named the offensive coordinator at Churchill.

In January, Churchill promoted former defensive coordinator Willie Williams to head coach after Albert Song resigned following two seasons at the helm of the program.

Williams, a 13-year NFL veteran who played with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks, said Samuels is a good fit for the program.

“He had other opportunities,” said Williams. “I’m just so glad he chose Churchill.”

The High and Mighty heads into the home stretch on h.s. picks

Montgomery Marty

Marty has but one question: How do you have a quarterback throw for more than 400 yards in a game and you don’t win?
That’s like Cleveland and Chicago being in the World Series at the same time.
That’s like Bob Dylan getting a Nobel Prize for literature.
That’s like the Hawgs not knowing when they have a quality quarterback.
That’s like Tom Brady getting butt-slurped for doing nothing.
Well, whatever.
Marty is still bemoaning a lack of defense in local football and as he wraps up this last week of the regular season, he’s hoping somebody besides Avalon will surprise him:

Mighty Marty’s getting seriously p.o’d at other sports reporters
Montgomery Marty

Marty has had it. Dunkin Donut, black coffee and cigarette finished with some of his sports brethren.
Sitting with some of his sports-writing compadres this week Marty had to listen to a whole lot of garbage-ola about Captain Kirk Cousins because one of his lineman ran into him on a play.
It was a pleasure watching Captain Kirk matching Matthew Stafford play for play. These are two of the best quarterbacks playing the game today.
Tom Brady is over the hill and was always overrated and still is. He’s the frat boy nobody likes.
Aaron Rodgers is better off doing commercials - it’s the one thing he does better than Brett Favre.
But the real quarterbacking is being done by Captain Kirk and when he wins his first MVP remember Marty said it here first - he’s the best!
There’s no “best” meanwhile in local high school football when it comes to defense.
Other than a handful of tough teams that are very well coached, high school football this year has seen some pathetic defense.
You could use the running clock as a fan in Marty’s office while he sips on a good Scotch and smokes a stoogie.
Here we go:

Montgomery Marty predicts the ‘Skins for Super Bowl Sunday

Montgomery Marty

 

Marty is ready to burst. The Big ‘Hawg fan has had enough of dissin’ the Hawgs.
Marty also wants to know what happened to the Packers last week. Aaron Rodgers looked like RGIII on the field and that ain’t a good thing.
The Green and Gold was supposed to whoop up on the Cow Pokes so the Hawgs could cruise.
Never mind, after winning four-straight The Sound and the Fury is waiting for Captain Kirk to cut loose with another “How you Like THAT!”
He’s earned it. And he earned Marty’s respect giving up his body rushing for a first down on a drive that led to a touchdown last week.
From Marty’s sideline seat, one could see Captain Kirk is the heart of this Redskin football team and Marty predicts a bunch of seasons ahead of this young man - eventually leading the Hawgs back to the Lombardi Trophy.
You heard it here first folks. Write it down and make book on it. The Big Cigar is never wrong. Speaking of which ole Marty was real close on a bunch of games last week and went 14-3. So let’s look ahead.
