The Colorado Mammoth lost last night in OT against the Vancouver Warriors who themselves have been struggling out the gate. Another 1 goal game loss. Up going into the second half and then decided the game was over and sat back and watched a hungry Warriors team take it to them in the second half. This has been a crazy start for Colorado. A short practice schedule, same as everyone else. However, a don't play the first game of the season on December 15, due to the strike, play the second week of the schedule (at 1 pm afternoon game), get a bye on the 3rd week of the schedule and play their 4th game another 1 pm start. An inconsistent way to practice and play. Biggest concern I see in the team is a lack of intensity, commitment to go hard on every shift and battle hard for an entire game. That is on the players and have read some posts on Colorado Mammoth who just don't understand it is the players choice to be fierce competitors. Hell, Coyle, Williams and McBride (coaches) among the most intense players I've ever seen play. They must be tearing their hair out watching the lack of commitment to compete hard on every shift. Never a shift off. Dhillion Ward one of the best in the league and was laughing at one poster on Twitter who pointed a finger at the cause of losses. D playing well and has basically for 4 or 5 games held the opposition to 10 goals and under. That should win you games in the NLL, which brings us to a huge concern, the offence. Even they can be better when games get tough. The O has 52 goals in 5 games. Last night again, 25 shots missed off goal. Week before 28 and week previous 30. Absolute poor performances. One player, Benesch with 12 goals, and the supporting cast of 6 have the other 40 goals. Poor decision making, refusal to go to the tough spots on floor, that would be the middle. They have no super star and as a group are not on the same page. Last night was watching and saw time after time poor outside shots and clock management. They need to, in a hurry, figure out how to put the ball in the net. Can't count on your D and goalie to bail you out game after game. Hope the players can look in the mirror and decide lacrosse is a 60 minute game where you win as a team with all players working with intensity and hard work. They have lost 1 game by 3 and 2 losses by 1 goal. Tighten up and they can turn it around. Lots of talent, young and losing Greer, Crawford and Holding was a loss of leadership and character.
