There’s definitely some plays we could’ve and should’ve called. But you could tell King doesn’t trust Allen (or any QB for that matter) against the wind. And to be fair, one of Allen’s passes literally went forward then ended up going completely side ways with the wind.

Still think we should’ve thrown in some screens or continued throwing to Hale some. Just get SOME relief off of Haynes and Kaden.

This is exactly what I am saying. You don’t have to go completely away from your identity and sling it around all game just enough to keep the defense honest and take some pressure off the run game.

I think Ryan gets the win. I seriously wonder how Carthage would Match up against both these teams? I know they’re smaller but damn Carthage was really good this year!

Not trying to post too much in your guys thread, I know I’m just a small school fan 😂😂😂. But I don’t have anybody to follow anymore now that Carthage is done. Not ready to be done with HSFB. So the Lo

You know what the wind was doing to passes, right?

Yeah I mean we all said it...

Hale was severely underutilized after that 1st quarter. I really didnt get it....they had no answer for him and even Bowman was getting burnt by Hale. A soph doing this to big time SR OU commit.

Man oh well, at least Hale now makes it over to a struggling basketball team that desperately needs him.

This too is what I am saying just as a fan watching today’s game. I also am of the opinion Hale is a better athlete than Bowman, straight up!

Yes, I did understand it was super windy in Mesquite today, and I can say it can kill a passing game like it did Carthage’s in 2018 against Liberty Hill. So, to your point, if you’re going to throw it they need to be shorter more manageable throws for the QB.

I think a few rollouts and throwing a medium depth pass to Hale running a crossing route going the same way as the rollout of the QB would’ve been good. Just some short out routes and slants would be a good change of pace to help the rushing attack. 
When it comes to the running game I’d like to have seen Meredith get some opportunities outside the tackles and then throw some screens to him and even just some passes to him coming out of the backfield. Just try to get him into space, let him make one cut evading that first defender and then see what he can do. 
I just think there are lots of things Longview can do even when you don’t have a Haynes King at QB.

Zero.

If he did....hed know that there isnt a team in ETX that runs the amount of formations and packages that Longview does.

He wants a sophomore QB who was on the freshmen B team last year to have the playbook opened for him similar to 2018 Longview. I mean my god, it was only the best QB in our programs' history running that offense.

I can't... 😂😂

plus hk was around the program since was a baby time got to hs he knew the system top to bottom

Why does Carthage have to be brought up in every thread on "what" some team should have done?

Hopefully it's considered trolling from now on. smh

No one said Carthage.

You "imply" on every thing you say in almost all threads that Surratt is your man hero. Now, prove me wrong?

Ha!! Surratt is definitely my man hero, but this afternoon and evening in all of my posts have I ever said anything about Carthage did X so Longview should’ve done the same. I have only said I would like to have seen Longview use the pass to keep the DR defense honest, that’s all.

Okay, go pay his house payments and leave the Longview people alone.

You’re wild, that man does not need me to pay his mortgage! 🤣
I have only supported the Lobos and stated I want for them to win lots of state championships. Many of the Longview guys have agreed with what I’ve said. I have not been demeaning and only posted opinions about how I think the offense could be tweaked for improvement.

Okay. Email John King with your thoughts. The team plus the fan base just took a loss. It's not very smart to be telling how a couch potato should run the O. JMO

Mine was more the 28 points (Diggs pick, not yours) and not having a chance at all.

Dropped interception by Longview that turned into points at the end of the half for Ryan completely changed the game, imo.

Lobos go into half winning instead of down 6, who knows. But ifs ands & buts don’t matter after that second half performance.

You’re right. Ryan is the better team. No doubt about it. 

That pick was a gift, I was in awww when he dropped it

I even congratulated them on their title.  Was glad to see another east Texas team bring one back.

I know, right?!  It was a lobo fan that brought Suratt into the conversation,

Technically I did but I come as cautionary outsider. I meant no disrespect and no not to condemn Longview folks at this difficult time. Fortunately , a recent championship eases the pain. They would tar a feather you if that didn’t happen.

Longview fans are cannibals by nature. Only approach with extreme caution. We need a disclaimer so no innocent bystanders aren’t hurt in the grueling process we call the playoffs. 

Pay HUGE attention. Lion has spoken.

You're wasting your breath, bud. That guy was one of the ones who said Longview would never win state under King. But unlike other doubters, he won't admit that he was wrong when Longview DID win state. It is actually really hilarious. 

Naw. That was me that said that regarding John King and I wholeheartedly own that. But, did we not have a loaded team in 2018?

Biggest Lobo hater on the board....why in the hell would any of us accept any type of congrats from the likes of you? 

Keep it movin'.
