why is everyone saying the defense is so good when the opposing teams constantly put up a ton of yards?
last night against the argos, the bombers had alot of stupid penalties on defense that extended argo drives, some bad calls by the refs aswell(the dorian smith roughing the passer) that i think may have lead to my thinking here but i mean, if our defense is so good, i wonder how many 2 and outs ?? not many, most argo drives were long drives, interceptions/fumbles... all well and good but how many of them happened when the argos were near or closer to our 20 yard line on every drive they had. Thank god for turnovers tho... 35 minutes for the argos on offense. some of that falls on our defense. perhaps if our d could maybe stop the other teams without them first gaining 60-80 yards, maybe our offense would have a better chance.
with that being said tho, our defense does turn the ball over.. and we did win the game. Just pointing out something i think is vastly over rated according to the stats but i suppose, sometimes the stats dont matter.
Fact is argos d is ranked #2
we arent ranked #1. but maybe in a way we should be but at the same time, i do think improvement is needed on defense.
our offense needs time to come together and hopefully they do because eventually when u give up like 400 yards a game on defense, your gonna get your butt handed to you one time, one time those 7 turnovers wont be there, then it might be ugly. I hope the D can keep it up tho, id like to see more 2 and outs.. but overall i think the bombers, if all goes well, if the offense can get rolling, if the d can keep it up... even get better... if our special teams can be steady all year.... we might be quite the contender. Lets hope the fans of the team allow our team to grow.
