The wife and I drove in from Toronto today for the game to cheer for the Cats (since I could never root for a Western team). I've been a Maas supporter all year but after today's pathetic effort, I have to really question his ability to play 1st string QB. Maybe he's just one of those guys who excels at coming off the bench. Nothing wrong with that actually, except he won't ever be a great starting QB. Sort of like the difference between a starting pitcher and a reliever. If he's over his injuries (and last week would indicate he is), his effort today was simply unacceptable. At no time today did I ever feel like he was going to put it all together and lead the team to a win. He looked lost out there.
He wasn't alone in his dismal effort. With their playoff lives on the line, no one came to play a full 60 minutes. Maybe a good play here or there but no sustained drives except for one and no great defensive play either. This team looked beaten before the end of the 1st quarter.
I know some of you guys will tell me to shove it because I'm an Argo fan, but I'll bet you'd be hard pressed to give me any positives from this game.
Today's highlight was the HOF ceremony at 1/2 time. The highlight packages of each guy were great and it was good to acknowledge such fine players. Incidentally, we saw Dunigan under the stands and the guy was absolutely great with the young fans. A HOFer in more ways than one.
