I haven't been on for long so two points.
It's about freaking time the CFL is on NFL network, and what a way to start. That Saskatchewan-Montreal game was one of the greatest games ever. Talk about lucky that it was exposed in the USA on NFL network.
The thing about Strasser is ... he's kind of mediocre.
I'm not bashing here, speaking as an Als fan who remembers his work when he was in Montreal. During our good years, he shared OC duties with Doug Berry. The year Strasser flew solo (2006), our offense was not anything to write home about. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. With a quarterback like Ray, a stable of excellent receivers, and (finally) a legit feature back in Whitlock, there is no excuse for putting up only 10 points against a revamped B.C. defense.
You don't have to tell me that. I haven't been a fan of him since he took over the offence. You're exactly right. The talent we have on offence, and we couldn't even put up more points than the Argos? :roll:
After the pre-season game, I figured the Lions would be in for a world of hurt. Ray looked like he was in classic form along with much of the Esks. However something changed in those two weeks and Ray spent a fair amount of time on the turf.
Preseason is for evaluating talent, I always laugh at the fans that lose it and jump off the wagon after the preseason if the team performs poorly. I'm not implying you're one of them by the way, just a general statement from reading some posts after bad preseason losses.
