Highlight Reel Owner Seth Wethor Makes a Bold Prediction

When you think of loudmouth owners the first name that comes to mind is Jerry Jones. From the conception of the EEFL it had appeared that Prime Time owner Andy Erickson would be to the EEFL what Jones is to the NFL. After recent comments made this morning by Highlight Reel owner Seth Wethor, there might be a new loudmouth in town.

Highlight Reel team captain Seth Wethor

In an email exchange with another owner this morning, Wethor declared and I quote “We (Highlight Reel) are gunna have the best D in the league. And prolly the best offense”. Many could take that quote as just a boost of confidence for his team, but Wethor later reiterated the statement making sure he got his point across. “I’m not being cocky, just telling the truth.”

One has to question the amount of confidence Wethor has in his team. By no means will this team be a basement dweller, but what many owners declare a downfall of his team, Wethor declares one of the strongest points. And that would be speed. Don’t get me wrong, they have some speed, but they may have the least amount in the league.

1st round draft pick Ben Erickson isn’t slow by any means, but every other team will have someone that is capable of covering him man-to-man. Jamon Harberts is more of a possession receiver that relies on finding holes in the coverage to get open rather than beating someone deep. Adrien Heiter and Austin Bunger pose no down the field threat whatsoever.

There will be trash-talking going back and forth between all teams in the league, but I have a feeling after Wethor’s latest comments, that the biggest rivalry may have just been spurred. “Your team (speaking of Prime Time) has no speed whatsoever. Kendall, and that’s it. Kyle is average. Ben on Kyle, Jamon on Kendall, Adrien and Bunger on Andy and Will. Me (Seth) playing safety. They won’t score 3 times. We will score 8.”

If those matchups are correct, any quarterback is going to drool over having Heiter and Bunger matched up on two of the biggest red-zone targets in the league in Andy and Will as they have an extreme height advantage over both. There will be many questions leading up to the league kickoff in 60 some days, but one thing that isn’t a question is that when these two teams meet feelings will be hurt, names will be called and blood will be shed. Prepare yourself; the rivalry begins in just 84 days.

    I love being an under-the-radar owner. I usually thrive on the trash talk, but this has taken the attention away from me. It could end up eating away at me.

    And his whole tirade started after I said that I am going to implement some defensive schemes based off of actual NFL schemes.

  5. berger987 February 3, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    To tell you the truth, there’s only so many schemes you can implement on defense. But there are enough that you can confuse offenses on a regular basis. However, in order to do that, your teams needs practice and commitment, 2 things that I can’t see an entire team having.

    If my team doesn’t perform up to expectations on the field so be it. But contrary to what other people have been saying, everyone on my team is all-in with what we are going to be doing. Yeah I do the rah-rah we are going undefeated stuff, but the bottom line is if I am a betting man I am not going to bet that my team goes undefeated or any other team does. I would bet that every team will have at least two losses at the end of the regular season though. The win-loss differential between teams is going to be a lot closer than expected.

    Oh I don’t doubt that. I think the records are going to be very even. There’s no way that teams are going to be able show up every week and take care of every team.

    Not liking the whole “pose no down field threat whatsoever” comment. Just wait for the season to start.

  9. berger987 February 3, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Andy, you are just giving people motivation, lol.

  10. ande22 February 3, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    Its just like Will and I, we don’t pose a down the field threat either. I’m not saying you are bad anywhere, unlike Seth said about my team.

    all i said was that you dont have that much speed either and ur bashing my team…we have more speed than you do.

  12. bwerickson February 3, 2011 at 4:37 pm
