The trends don’t look promising for Shock fans.
Everett scored the final 20 points of the first half. The Hawks had three scoring plays of more than 30 yards. Against a team that has yielded an average of almost 60 points a game, Spokane has managed to gain 70 total yards.
Two things probably need to happen for the Shock to rally in the second half: The defense has to quit giving up the big play and the offensive line has to stop allowing Everett to pressure right up the middle.
Maybe it is time to switch to Justin Rummell at quarterback. He’s a little more mobile than Andrico Hines, which is needed against the Everett pressure.
Whether Shock coach Adam Shackleford would be willing to make that change remains to be seen. My guess is he won’t.
