Boy, does Herb ever tear Higgins anew one about the Als inability to notice that three times an onside Hamilton player had the opportunity to recover a punt, demonstrating a complete lack of awareness by the Als; especially after Swayze waters recovering one last week:
[i]The Als also made another special teams mistake in the quarter. During a punt, the ball hit the shoulder of Hamilton’s Ed Gainey and was recovered by Craig Butler, who was onside. That marked the second consecutive week during which the opposition recovered a short punt on Montreal.
Head coach Tom Higgins, coincidentally, is the Als’ special teams coordinator.[/i]
Wow, I hope Tom can sit down after that. :roll:
