I watched the Paly game and it was a good effort by Paly. The real disappointment was in the defense. Poor tackling and a weak secondary will make for a long season for Paly. Most disturbing was the defense got burned on the same play multiple times. Paly has to play smarter football if they want to compete this year. All the teams that play against Paly will attack that weak secondary.
