Chamblee loses 14-10 to Columbia. That tough schedule of Chamblee is already paying off.

Monroe Area had mercy on Stephens County. The score was 26-0 at the end of the first quarter. Go Canes!!!!!

My ‘Canes are ON FIRE!!! Hurricanes led 47-0 at the half, and it could have been 54-0 after an intercepti9on at midfield with about 2 minutes left in the half. Monroe Area could have scored at will all night long if they were given the opportunity by the coaching staff.

This game was decided with about 3 minutes left last year on a breakaway TD run by Truitt. This year, it was decided about three minutes after the opening kickoff. I really expected Stephens to give us a game, especially at the Reservation.

GO MONROE!!!!!!!!!!

To yawner, I don’t recall anyone saying MA was unstoppable, they are just saying what happened in the game. The score was 26-0 at the end of the first quarter. Maybe MA will play SC again this year and who knows what will happen, maybe the same thing, but SC will do the same thing to about 95% of the teams in the state. Maybe it will be different in Monroe this year if, MA will play SC.

Why y’all hatin’ on Chamblee? I can tell softie has no balls and hasn’t played a down since he had girls on his team at Murphy Candler. Washout wasn’t at the game – because Chamblee actually played well…. A couple of bad coaches decisions short of a win.

@why yall I was at that game Chamblee fans were incredible but Chamblee is not ready for big boy football. Couldn’t move the ball all night. Get your weight up!!

@atthegame – stats prove you wrong. Chamblee moved the ball. The D held Columbia in check and Chamblee controlled both lines of scrimmage. Chamblee’s smallest lineman goes about 240. Get your weight up? Columbia was tired and ready to surrender, but clock management by the coaching staff was Chamblee’s undoing. Led to some very costly mistakes on the field. But I agree with you too. Chamblee is not ready for playoff football. Shoulda won this one though.

Not hating on anyone, especially not the kids. Bad scheduling every season, so the team is never ready for tough games. Silly fans bragging about Chamblee wins don’t recognize reality. Sound like Grady fans bragging about their wins over bad teams. Wins against weak competition to pad the record, but cannot win tough games. (And smallest lineman is under 240lbs, LOL!)

@ yawner – nobosy said anything sbout unstoppable – I said “ON FIRE”, which we are. Playoff time will seperate the men from the biys. We’ve lost to the Creek twice over the past 3 years or so, but that’s hardly a crime, considering the talent at SC. I’m lovin’ on my Hurricanes, and your holier-then-thou mouth ain’t gonna slow that down!!

Tons of resoect for SC and the tradition that has been established there. Tons MORE for my Hurricanes for the emergence of a AAAA powerhouse after years of mediocrity!!!

@Black1, we have no control over our region structure. Sandy Creek’s region isn’t exacty packed with top 10 teams, either: 5-AAAA/A, combined 7-17 record. 5-AAAA/B fares a little better at 16-8.

To the best of my knowledge region 5 is not subdivided. The top 2 ranked teams in the state makes region 5 more “packed” with top 10 teams than any other one,. Where did you get the idea that region 5 is divided?

Round 2 of the playoffs will settle the question. It will be Monroe Area vs Sandy creek or Carrollton. Does Monroe have the facilities to host a playoff game? Both teams bring a LOT of fans.

Softies, I have seen you on here two weeks in a row talking smack about Chamblee. I haven’t seen a single post from a Chamblee fan bragging about anything. I don’t get on here much, so it’s likely I am missing it, but no reason to waste your time worrying about the Chamblee team. If you’re not on here to say something positive about the kids why not just stay home and play by yourself. I happen to know the smallest starting lineman is 240 because he lives in my house. He may be 245, but he’s listed at 238…… You are simply classless, softies. Your parents must be proud to have raised such a sissy.

Hey daddie, I was reacting to the AJC story about the supposed stout Chamblee defense. Take care of your own house and save the lectures for someone who cares. The bottom line is that the Chamblee coaches schedule weak non-region teams and fail to prepare their young men for tough games. Happened last year; happening this year already.

Softies, Calm down. This is high school football. Have respect for someone because it’s clear that you have none for yourself. If you are such an expert on the coaching mishaps of the Chamblee staff, give them a call and offer your suggestions. I am sure the last team you coached was undefeated and went to the state championship and won by a record setting margin. Remember your manners next time you talk to someone’s father. Take your time and use your inside voice. No one likes a smarta** that doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Last but not least, coaches don’t get to make their own schedules. Also, you may want to check the regions, because Chamblee just like most DeKalb schools play a schedule that includes both non-region and region games.

If coaches do not have input on schedules where are they formed?Every team with 10 or less teams will play non-region teams-this is where the selection comes into play. You also have to realize that many schools do not have budgets to allow for much travel .

Monroe Area starting defense has allowed 21 points in 6 games.
Monroe Area starting offence has averaged 11.6 yds per carry, and is over 60% in completions.

Respect for their region counterparts, Monroe Area sends their B & JV team in every game at 1/2 time with a running clock.

No one thinks Monroe is un-stoppable. But some commits here peak the curiosity, what school has fans that would not get excited over numbers like this?

Coaches do not pick which region, or division a school plays in. GHSA controls this.

The less you respond to rude, argumentative, critical fools, the more peaceful your life will be.

I am not a parent who lectures, Softies. I believe the natural consequences of ones choices are the best way to learn. Apparently you haven’t had the same opportunities for success as my kids. Sorry ’bout your luck.

Chamblee’s schedule has been a joke — look at the Maxwell Ratings published earlier this week and Chamblee has one of the weakest schedules to date in Class 4A. Sounds like last year — 8-0 until the last two weeks, and then missed the playoffs. Chamblee needs to play better competition in the non-region schedule to be able to hang with better teams at the end of the year.

Compare Chamblee’s schedule to Marist — Marist has had one of the hardest schedules in Class 4A to date. That is how to prepare for the end of the season. Wish Chamblee staff would care more about the long-term than the short-term

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE CRAP MRS. SOFTIES LIKES TO POST ABOUT CHAMBLEE. Tell him to go away. Stupid is as stupid does. And stupid was

Before I go I have to suggest a change to your ajc moniker, Sofies. In order not to offend anyone you will need to rub all three of your brain cells together to get this one…… you should call yourself WiltedRichard……. I’m out. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the season and all your players stay safe. Play HARD and Play SMART y’all.
