Maas gave the Als 9 points( a self-inflicted safety and an intercept in the endzone). We lost by 9 points. The math tells me that if Chang starts at least we're even against BC. Maas' passes are poorly placed with few exceptions.
First...let's clarify something. The safety given up by Maas was an awful snap (as Bob Uecker would say, "just a bit outside"...and low. To get us in that positiion...Duvall boomed a 75 yard punt. The play prior to the punt, two (yes two) of our boys had a chance at an INT and neither could bring the ball down...inside Montreal territory. We missed one other INT that would have given us excellent field position as well. Montreal then took the ball after the safety and marched down the field for 7 more.
Soooo...the missed INT lead to 9 points.
Maas throwing an INT in the endzone (their endzone) did not give Montreal 7 points!!! That lead to no points...zero...nada...none.
Chang starting leaves us even with B.C.?? Well, before the opening kick-off I suppose. Maas' passes were all on target. His completion percentage was good and only jaded by the 5 drops of easy throws that we didn't haul in. A couple in first down yardage areas.
Chang's missles on the other hand, on Staurday night, looked more like grenades, exploding all over the turf of IWS. (6 incompletions in a row).
