AREA GRADE
COMMENTS
PASSING OFFENSE
D
Seven yards total passing is not very good, however, at least Kaipo didn't throw a costly interception.
RUSHING OFFENSE
B
Navy rushed for 287 yards on the day, most teams would love to have this stat. No Mid had over 60 yards rushing but the Navy rushing machine gets the job done again.
PASSING DEFENSE
B
Nice job by the Navy's often struggling passing defense. Irv Spencer and Matt Wimsatt each had a pair of pass breakups. Army's Carson Williams completed over half his passes but finished with just 117 total yards and no completions for over 22 yards.
RUSHING DEFENSE
A-
Navy defenders limited Army to just 100 yards rushing and made the plays in the red zone to prevent the Cadets from gaining any kind of momentum. The two fumble recoveries by Spencer and Ross Pospisil had game changing implications.
SPECIAL TEAMS
A+
Wow, what a performance. A long field goal by Joey Bullen, a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Reggie Campbell, a blocked punt and the list goes on and on.
COACHING
A+
This game showed what a good coaching staff could do against a poorly coached football team. What you saw on the football field on Saturday is precisely why several BCS schools are knocking on Paul Johnson's door.
OVERALL GRADE
A
Another Navy domination of Army. Look for the Mids to make it 7 straight next year as the Army team will be depleted by graduation and Navy will return multiple play makers on offense and defense.
