Another horrible outing for the Riders. That's two in a row. Enough, we are better than this.

Brandon Bridge is not a starter, we now know this. Watford as a converted receiver is showing as much poise as BB, who's in his 4th year as a CFL QB.

Any who is the person who decided we should keep Messam sidelined all night? This was the exact type of game where a guy like Messam turns the tables. Were we outcoached? Seems so.

How typical of the Riders. The year Hamilton was stinking up the CFL, the Riders ruined the Tabbies' otherwise perfect record and gave them their one win that season. The Alouettes are this year's Ti-Cats, and who gift-wraps a notch in the W column for them? You're welcome, Larks.

I want to see more Canadian qb's in the league as much as the next guy, but Bridge's performance tonight did nothing to help the cause.

Defensive MVP for the Alouettes goes to the goalpost for deflecting what should have been a momentum-shifting, lead taking touchdown for the Riders.
Or Thigpen holding onto the first pass of the game.  

The Rider D looked really good...you know...other than that one guy at Corner.

There is one positional coach that needs to go...have said it since the day he was hired.  I said it to certain people today in a fashion I may not be welcome around em for a while lol

So lets face it, The Riders are in big trouble this season and the way its looking so far, we were better this time last season......sure we were loosing but at least we were putting up points/ OFFENSE!!!!!
Every other team in the west including Winnipeg, Ottawa and Hamiliton have improved significantly but not The Riders.
This revovling door and not knowing who's on the field next PLUS imo we are no closer to a FRANCHISE QB then we were when conversations started while DD was still playing (years ago!!!)
Man I'm pissed, come on loosing to the broken Montreal machine in our home stadium. >:(

No we didn't play pretty good in any phase, get real. And who the hell is judging talent on this team when so many players aren't sticking??

For real....not sure how you can say the D did not look good Carter aside.  They smothered the run and of the 287 yards given up probably 180 were on Carter.  Rest of the team I agree.  Step one needs to be a new OL coach....100%.  I have not liked a couple of the moves this team has made...I was hopeful on Collaros but not through the moon on it...that said he is not a writeoff yet.  Management of the OL has been horrific though and is what is going to kill this team.  I thought it was going to be in okay condition until Bond was released....I would say that is when a lot of my opinion on this season went into question...Harrison was plain brutal.  LaBatte needs to go to C.  Pick up Peter D for LG.  Keep Bladek at RG and let him learn...he is making mistakes, but he is going to be good.  That helps a lot of the woes on O.  Not a fan of McAdoo....I have never hidden that...but probably ride him out for the season.

Owens was a decision basically made when he got hurt with a couple of days left in camp.  Bagg was well past his prime...Muamba they Fd up the contract....they should never have made his 220 for this year...guess they needed to to sign him but that was stupid and he had to go.  Honestly...the drop off at LB for 2 of 3 games is probably worth the 100k they are saving.  I can't really argue those moves.  The biggest thing from camp...Bond aside......was that their were a couple of DBs that were more than adequate and they sent them packing.  I think that in time Carter could be sensational at CB...but how many games do you lose because of him to get there.

The talent is there with this team...the 2 gaps are 1 CB and 1 OL.  This loss is on Carter at CB and, horrid OL coaching and a bad OC.  For hahas one should count how many times Rider receivers were in the same area or that they had a receiver in the passing lane underneath another....those are plays that should not be in an offense's playbook....that is just unacceptable.  messups happen and things get crossed, but it was clearly just horrible plays at times yesterday

I understand Depop and agree with your opinion on OC and play calling . What really transpired with JJ leaving??
I realize you have what I assume is a more up front detailed perception of the The Rider Team, I on the other hand only go by what I see in every game played and although the Defense is good, with the big names, IMO the defense should be "great" . Great defenses don't play the way I saw against Montreal. Penalties are a serious concern.
Well either way, You can bet the next 2 games with a mercy week in between will put the situation into perspective.

Nothing...he had the opportunity for advancement.


I don't think one can ask a whole pile more of the D than they did last night...Carter aside.  They played well everywhere else.

Depop could not agree more on macadodo . My brother and I talked about this on the trip home last night. Why has Bond and I forget his name at the min, he went back to Calgary, had bad seasons here and return to there old teams and become good players again. Why has our O-line sucked so bad, we agreed it has to be coaching. Macadoo is so predictable I know what's coming almost every play, They fail to make yards on the run, he stops using it. I remember a time when if we ran less than 20 times , we lost more we won. We need a new Coaches in 2 spots the ones you said. Carter needs be return to the offence and Jones needs to stop with his crazy lame experiments. I remember the same bull with Francis at safety. I see he does not play there now!! gee wonder why. When will Jones get off his ego high horse and do the smart thing. I still do not like this guy, and never will.

As for the game, it was a cluster F**# from start to finish. Bridge play like crap, and if he wants to be a starter he better start earning it, and I like the kid. O-line needs fixing, need to use the run a lot more, Carter on O only, Messim was the guy that should of seen some time, simply because he is a bull moose in a china shop. We need a plow out there last night. This game is just not on the players but on our over paid coaching staff. If we do not land in the bottom of Titan rankings this week, something is wrong, this team looked worse last night than the year Cory got fired. And Reynolds step in be a boss and stop the Carter Db experiment!

It was a disgrace last night. oh and time to do something about all the stupid bad penalties.  Nuff said
