    [2022] Week 3 Review

    Won't lie, i've been watching them closely every game they played this season. they look good. im hoping i can sneak one past them at home though
  2. I feel like I’ve done relatively well containing Carolina the last handful of times we’ve played. But I have to agree that with the injuries, it might be hard. Skaggs should have a huge game if still can’t make it this week(pls). We’re really gonna have to rely on Heiden to pick apart that defense and for DNJ to set up the 2nd/3rd and easy. Maintaining possession will be the real key this week We should make a punting change this week. Rabid and I talked about it last week but it was too late to make a change then
  3. Hopefully we can turn things around..these injuries are killing me. Down to a boarderline practice squad DE(and if he goes down than we’ll only have 1 on the team), using a FS at corner if still can’t go, lost my ss early. If we are too turn things around, my offense has to become something it’s not..a high powered unit that milks the clock.

    [2022] Week #3 - TNF

    good game imposter A close rivalry game is always fun to see though i wish i had been on the winning side. I do believe we are all tied up 2-2 in the series now correct? I wish i could figure out why we only ran the ball 8 times.
  10. Historic Freshmen Young Pirates and Their Impact Liam Carver 164 of 284 for 1964 yards, 15 TDs, 7 Ints, 128.34 QBR. 58 attempts for 280 yards, 1 TD, 4.82ypc (2018) We spent sometime in a previous article discussing the impact of freshmen in ECU's loss to Northwestern. ECU will be playing a lot of freshmen and first time players this season leaving a lot of potential to set new records, and make a huge impact for this team. But this raised the question of former impactful freshmen and what standard they left behind for these young guys to beat. The Pirates began play in 2014, and we quickly discovered that for the most part, not too many freshman have ever started for ECU over the years. In fact, the 2022 season has already seen the pirates tie the 2016 season for freshman pirates making the stat sheet after 1 game. In 2016, a season where ECU went 2-10, the Pirates had 5 freshman make the statsheet. ECU could potentially break the record this year with more than those five taking starting positions. Obviously though, ECU hopes to finish with a much better record and keep their bowl streak, and continue building their record of being one of a handful of schools to have 7 or more wins in 6 or more seasons. Obviously, one of the biggest freshman in the schools history, as well as being one of the biggest record holders at the school, is quarterback Liam Carver. While his numbers are obviously nothing to be impressed with, and P5 schools might look at these numbers and scoff, it is important to note the ECU before Coach Weeze took over the program in 2019, ECU did not have a pass heavy offense. Before his 15 touchdowns in 2018, the most touchdown passes by an ECU QB was Kevin Moore's 12. In 2014. But even with his lack luster numbers, Carver helped lead his offense to the schools second Conference Championship appearance. His numbers, especially being under Coach Weeze's tutelage drastically improved the next three years where he had over 3000 yards in each season, as well as throwing for 17, 29 and 24 touchdowns respectively in each of those seasons. With Kyler Wilson being the only other QB in school history, he is already on pace to beat his former teammates freshman season. He fits the mold for who the headcoach wants at QB, expect big things from this man. Devin Scruggs 301 attempts for 1310 yards, 10 touchdowns, 4.35 YPC(2017) As we mentioned, before Coach Weeze arrival to ECU in 2019, the Pirates ran a dominate run game. Eli Tuitama is a well known figure at ECU. He did Well enough that the New York Jets even drafted him. But as a freshman in 2016, he played his recruited position as a Fullback. He was redshirted in 2017, and thanks to a weird injury to the starter, took reps at running back and won the job. The only freshman running back however in school history to have more than 20 attempts, is Devin Scruggs. Starting in only 10 games in 2017, he still managed to put up 1310 yards, and 10 touchdowns. The Pirates suffered only their second and last losing season that year, but he was a huge bright spot for the offense. The emergence of Tuitama in 2018, and the coaching change in 2019 really hurt Scruggs and saw his chance at starting slip away. He started in one game in 2018 where he left early, but did get a chance in 2020 to start. He started against UCF and USF as a result of the coaching staff trying to jump start a sluggish run game. He only managed 117 yards and 1 touchdown on 31 attempts however. Ironically, these two games probably prevented Tuitama from having 1000 yards or more every year as the starting rusher. Despite losing his chance at being a starter, he still managed to rush his way to third all time rushing leader. Multiyear starters James Hanes(2nd) and Eli Tuitama(1st) have the leading rusher honors. Had the Pirates Redshirted Scruggs in 2018 or 2019, he could have stayed till 2021, a season they desperately needed a runningback. Jared Talbert 59 Receptions for 919 yards, 12 TDs, 15.58 YPC(2021) In 2020, Leon Burris burst onto the scene, making an impact few expected. He was the first true freshman to ever start at the WR position for the school. He managed to fight his way into the lineup despite clearly not being ready to start at this level early on. He worked hard and was given the opportunity to make school history. With only 550 yards receiving, and 6 touchdowns, he improved drastically the following year being Carvers main target. But the records he set the year before were completely decimated by Jared Talbert. Liam Carver had one non freshman receiver during the 2021 season. A funny stat when you consider before 2020, no freshman had ever started at the position. Talbert was recruited out of alabama, and arrived a clear day one starter. Burris, who finished the season less than 20 yards from being the first in school history to have a 1000 yards, had true freshman Talbert riding his heels, braking his freshman records easily. Talbert finished the season with 59 receptions(ranks 3rd in single season), for 919 yards(3rd single season), 12 touchdowns(1st single season and only second ever in school history to reach 10 or more). He and burris became the first duo in school history to reach 900 each. His 15.58 YPC is also a school record for a single season. Talbert is under close observation this season as he currently, with this year included, only six touchdowns away from breaking the school career record. However he isn't the only one. His rival across the field is also a handful touchdowns away as well. Aiden Daniels 17 tackles, 3 TFL, 5.5 Sacks, 1 FF(2021) ECU has seen a few freshman on offense. Never on the offense of line, a couple at receiver, two at quarterback, and only 1 at running back. Defense however is another story. Over the years, they have seen a number of players start on defense. A lot started during the 16-17 seasons, which also corresponds with the 4-20 record they posted during those two years. However, few have ever posted eye popping numbers. Something this current team, if they are looking to leave a lasting statement, can really take advantage of. The post productive player has probably current DE, Aiden Daniels. As a true freshman, he was apart of probably one of the best pass rushes the school has ever seen. A big part of Coach Weeze plan for the team, was to build up a defense. A long standing problem the team has faced has been a lack of pass rushing from the front 7. More so from the line. They've had productive linebackers, but the line has always seemed to struggle when it comes to getting after the qb. Recruiting in this area has been excellent. one of these players include Aiden Daniels. Starting acorss from Isiah Townsend last season, Daniels managed to record 5.5 sacks last season. With Townsends 7.5 sacks, the duos 13 sacks is the most the school has ever gotten out of the two DE positions. With Aiden coming back, with more experience to his name, and Theo Guinn, the first 4* DE in school history, across from him, we should see a big improvement in this area. If last weeks game against Northwestern is any indication, we could see a very scary pass rush come from the Pirates. There hasn't been too many other players to make a huge impact on the team in their freshman season. OLB Fredrick MClaughlin in 2016 may be another name worth mentioning. His 39 tackles is the highest any freshman have ever recorded in a single season. Richard Jack and his 5 tackles is off to a good start to try and top this number. But its gonna take a lot. Especially if the offense can be as good as it looked last week all season. The Pirates have had some successful freshman over the years, but if they can pull everything together, they might see some of the best this season the school has ever seen. They have great play makers on defense who showed up big despite their loss. The Wide receiver corp has yet another freshman this season who came out big last week, almost becoming the first freshman receiver to get 100 yards receiving. The QB obviously had a great game with his 299 yards and 3 touchdowns. Its going to be a long season, and we can't wait to see what happens. Hopefully tomorrow, we will get a big time win against a big instate rival! Go Pirates!
  11. i think its interesting with the Falcons going up with a lost. i don't disagree, just think its interesting. they did play hell of a game to take it to overtime with a rookie coming in at some point.NFCS race is on and looking good already

    [2022] Week #2 - SNF

    That linebacker unit put in some work today. All three made the statsheet! Also nice to see Jacob come up with his first take away in his first regular season appearance. Thats how you do it.
  16. this is gonna be a very interesting game. Buffalo and that QB should have a hard time i think against Houston. They've played some very good defense. Both teams look to have a very solid run defense..quarterback duel?

  18. ECU Fails to Closeout Northwestern Young Pirates Make Big statement in Season Opener 5* QB (Fr) Kyler Wilson Makes his Debut. 24/39 299, 3 TD, 0 Int The 2022 season opened up for most teams last week, however East Carolina opened up with an early season bye. According to the headcoach, they did not take it easy last week. "We practiced as if we had a game on Saturday. We studied game tape of last season, and various practices from spring and fall camp. We want to come into this game with as little rust as possible. They will have some game time experience already and we can't be caught trying to play catch up if we expect to win." And for 3 quarters on Friday night, the Pirates seemed like they might come away with a huge win in Evanston. But alas, it was not to be as the pirates couldn't hold on and loss 45-31 against a tough Northwestern team. Despite the loss however, there are a lot of positive things that can be taken out of this game. Kyler Wilson might be legitimate starter we all believed him to be. Sometimes stats to a game can be inflated when you're playing catch up, but going into the 4th quarter, the game was tied at 24. The line coming into this game was going to be suspect for the Pirates. And it really showed. Yet the young quarterback stood tall in the pocket and delivered the ball to his receivers, racking up 299 yards. He also managed to find the endzone three times, and no turn overs. Even though it was a lost, for a young freshman quarterback, the start to his career could not have been much better. He was under pressure all night and still found ways to keep it close until the very end. The O-line being what it is, will make us all miss Liam Carver and his ability to use his legs. But if the coaching staff can find some protection, and continue to give him weapons, Wilson should become the greatest QB the school has ever seen. WR (Fr) Kenneth McCormick, 7 Receptions 94 yards, 1 TD Wilson wasn't the only Freshman that was impressive Friday night. In fact the pirates had a number of freshmen take starting roles at various positions. Kyler Wilsons performance was obviously very important, and highly anticipated. However, there was another big name on offense Friday night. A name that perhaps have been flying under the radar. Kenneth McCormick, a WR out of Goldsboro North Carolina, had the best debut of any freshmen receiver in school history. This includes Leon Burris(3 rec for 20yds), and Jared Talbert(4 for 30) who both have had amazing careers to this point. McCormick had 7 receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown. Burris when asked about McComicks performance, "Yeah man..he came out and did his thing. He is a big guy with a lot of speed. We've known for a while that he's dangerous. He has those long arms, he is gonna have a great year..but Jared and I..we are gonna make it hard for him to beat our records." The trio all found ways to record a touchdown against Northwestern. But the level of production seen out of the young man was not expected. With his size and speed, it would not be out of the question to say he might push for that number one spot. Es specially if he can keep up this level of production. (Fr) LOLB Richard Jack(5tkls,1FL,1Sack) and (Fr) LDE Theo Guinn(2 Tkls, 1 Sacks) But it isn't just the offense that has a lot of young faces. The defense has plenty of young guys starting out for the first time. In fact, 7 of the 11 starters on defense played their first game for the Pirates. You could say inside linebacker Logan Bird played for the pirates last season, but he was low on the depth chart, and didn't even play with special teams until half way through the last season due to some injuries. However, Richard Jack, Theo Guinn, and Logan Bird were all very impactful Friday night. All three recorded 1 sack, Jack had five tackles and Bird recorded 6. The defense held Northwestern to only 67 yards rushing, with the longest run on the ground only 10 yards. This is perhaps one of the most interesting statistic to come out of the game. Last season, the pirates were horrendous defending the run. They ranked bottom three last season in the conference, even with their defensive turn around half way through the season. The secondary during this game looked awful..however it was expected they were going to be challenged. Both Safeties are new, the second CB, Javier Landry, is a freshmen, as well as their dimeback Samuel Amos. That is a lot of inexperience in that backfield. At least last season, the guys had experience in the system and had some years on them. The players now, only two played football at all last season at the college level. And those two haven't exactly been productive. It was a big first test, and the secondary came out limping in the end. Next week they get an easier challenge against NC State, but that doesn't mean they won't be challenged. They've been exposed and teams will continue to challenge them until they can stop it. Overall, it was a good effort from a young team to go into enemy territory, and play them to the end. An entire offensive line unit who has never started a game, a new runningback, a new quarterback, a freshman receiver, 7 new starters on defense, 4 of those freshmen..a win would have been huge for this team. The future looks bright. "We went toe to toe with a much better team. I'm proud of my boys. I saw a lot we have to work on, but i saw a lot to be proud of. We are going to continue to grow, and continue to get better everyday. Next week we take on the wolfpack of NC State. A rivalry I enjoy, and a rivalry these kids enjoy and look forward to playing. It was close last year, but we are looking to setting the record straight." The Pirates are hoping to bounce back next week in a very important game. Not only would it be a big instate win, but it would also mean Coach Weeze is tied for the winningest coach in school history. We could think of no better opponent than Nc State for that to happen.

    [2022] Week #2 - FNF

    its funny that you say that. i was thinking the same thing. Almost 300 yards and a decent comp/attempt ratio and no interceptions while being attacked all game..a solid line might have flipped the score.

    [2022] Week #2 - FNF

    "A Live look at the ECU headcoach during the 4th quarter" Overall..i think im kind of pleased. NW has a decent team and we played them very well..against a weaker team i feel like this would have been a good win. Hell of a first showing for the Kyler Wilson era. It was a lost, but the offense looked good..almost 300 yards passing and a 4.7 YPC day on the ground(Something i did not have at all last season). Freshman receiver came out and played big. And the D line looks hungry. Good game @robcarlson77. Hoping to sneak a win, but it was a good game none the less.
