  4. Much better than last week's showing against Glastonbury. But bad turnovers in bad spots have cost them. Of course, obvious is 0 points.

  5. Do you think New Britain has a shot at winning?

  6. They did have a shot late, especially after the Southington penalty, but Larry Garcia threw a pick in final seconds to end it.

  8. It's nearly impossible to be 0-2 after allowing just 20 points in two games. But that is where New Britain is now. New Britain has scored 0 points this season.

  9. How dont think it's the coaching. I think its the players.

  10. It's too early to tell where the blame should be put. The defense has been great. The offense has not. The coaches have to put the right players in the right positions to succeed. And the players have to do their part as well. Something is obviously wrong on offense with zero points in two games this season. Probably a lot of blame to go around.

  11. If New Britain could have put points on the board (maybe just a touchdown) in both games, and limited turnovers, the Canes could easily be 2-0 right now.

  12. I have been to both games this year,two more then I attn. from last year. The D is playing lights out. The O is making way to many mistakes.And the special team not having 11 guys on the field making NB burn a timeout when you stop SHS on the first poss. Once NB can gets the O and special team going NB will be a scary team. And come on ppl this you team NB was going to go undefeated?
