It was 93 yards according to the play by play guys. This game was hopeless.
And they threw away Adams!

Just finished watching the game in its entirety, so here is my reaction.

-Game looked like game 2 of a 3-game playoff series where the home team wins game 1 and then almost concedes 2 because they are focusing on the game 3 at home.  Problem here is that game 3 in this series is in Toronto and is not close to being an automatic Als win.

-Sam Giguère got the start ahead of George Johnson and played every offensive down.  George Johnson was the 5th receiver and came in on passing situations while FB Oumar Touré sat.
 
-Starting DL was Jesse Joseph, Ray Drew, Don Oramasionwu, and John Bowman.

-DT Ray Drew played almost all of the game.  Jesse Joseph at DE the vast majority of the game.  The few times Drew came out, Gabriel Knapton moved to DT.  Joseph's backup was Jean-Samuel Blanc.  John Bowman played most series.  When Bowman rested, Knapton came in.  So, Knapton and Jabar Westerman (who were expected to be starters going into the season) are now just backups.
 
-Is Ray Drew (and to a lesser extent Jesse Joseph) that valuable that the Als play him on most every defensive down without much of a breather?

-You know the DL was not effective when Jean-Samuel Blanc was the only one to make a noticable play.

-Defensive rotation by Noel Thorpe looks nothing like what he did in the early part of the year.  Back then, Thorpe was rotating players on almost each play as well as switching between the 4-3 and 3-4.  On Saturday, the DL for the most part stayed the same for the entire series.  Thorpe also only used 4 linebackers a few times the whole game.

-Even with 4 DL, pressure on Ricky Ray was minimal.

-Saw Stefan Logan upset on a kickoff return.  Could be because when he started running, the 4 nearest players to him were Argos.  The one who tackled him was backup QB Dakota Prukop who was not being blocked.

-With Vernon Adams gone, is Darian Durant now the short yardage QB?  I thought it might be Drew Willy, but it looks like a NO so far.

-Argos must have run the fake handoff then fullback screen 10 times in the game.  Ricky Ray picked on Jean-Samuel Blanc because of his inexperience at the postion and also on John Bowman because the Argos think he lacks speed.

-Kyries Hebert looked slow when he could not reach SJ Green on an Argo TD pass.  He also missed a tackle on Martese Jackson even though Hebert had both arms around Jackson.

-Nicolas Boulay did not help his cause for playing on defense when Martese Jackson came directly toward him on a kick return and he missed the tackle.
  
-SJ Green is slow, but this is a year where QB's are throwing 50-50 balls hoping the bigger receivers come down with the ball.

-Saw on mixup on the OL where Luc Brodeur-Jourdain thought Jeremy Lewis was going to handle a rusher.  Lewis chose instead to block someone else instead.  Durant ended up getting hit.

-Worse single play on the OL was when Argo DT Dylan Wynn went through 3 Als (Luc Brodeur-Jourdain, Kristian Matte, and Jeremy Lewis) to tackle Durant.

-Drew Willy passed for almost 1/3 of Darian Durant's yardage on 1 play.  But then, that was in garbage time.  Plus, he was sacked on the next 2 plays.

Good summary.
Overall, UGLY would be the best way to describe it.
And while Green may be slow, he still had 128 receiving yards in the first half alone with two TD's.
Durant did not even throw for 100 yards the entire game!

I will still take Green's slowness.

Extremely disappointed how they came out after winning the previous week.
At least if they had been in the game and came away with a loss it might be a little easier to swallow.
But they did not show up from the first kick off.
I look at Chaps for not having his team prepared and for the lack of adjustment all game long.
I also look at the GM Reed for the players he has assembled.

One step forward, three steps back.

Almost halfway mark now and the RB are one point behind.

Gabe Knapton is a backup because Kavis messed up the ratio of this team. Trade him to Edmonton :)

I posted this previously, but there was a sack where DD fell at the feet of a receiver (Giguere?) who was for some reason still 10-12 yards behind the line of scrimmage several seconds into the play.
Anyone with any idea why?
