C'mon guys, don't give up already!
Winnipeg has the same record, and their fans are so positive, and proud. We lose a couple of games, and all we can talk about is how our team is "mediocore" and I can't even believe the thought of re-location of the team has came up!
Yes, the Als aren't the 12-4 team that we are used to having. Why? Because our great Montreal media, and the know it all Football fans in this city, drove Don Matthews out of town, because he lost a few games. The reason to our great success, in this new millenium.
There is no winning with the fans in this city. This year, is Calvillo's fault. People say he can't throw and can't run anymore.
Well, I don't know about you all, but I watched the Als' every game this season.
1- Yes, Anthony was sacked a lot. But why doesn't anyone bring up the times when Calvillo eludes the pressure, bouncing out of the pressure, rolling out and getting 3 yards in stead of losing 7. When Calvillo get's sacked, within 1 second of receiving the snap, he's too old and isn't mobile. When Calvillo get's sacked, everyone says "throw it away". But when Calvillo throws it away, people say "He can't throw anymore".
2- Calvillo can't throw. Anthony Calvillo is 2nd in passing yards in the CFL. 1st in pass completion %.
I agree, sometimes Calvillo is real out of it. Nothing happening, and I do agree, Calvillo needs to be pulled sometime. But to say Calvillo is one of the reasons to why we are having a so-so season, is ridiculous.
The game in the trenches is the most important part of football. Whether it's NFL, CFL, AFL, CIS, NCAA... The Defense all starts at the D-Line. The Offense starts at the 0-Line. Put AC on the a team that actually has a 0-Line that can block for 3 seconds, he WILL put up the numbers he use too.
I know I can get on the Defense, but you know what, frankly I am sick of all this Calvillo is done crap. He isn't. People in Montreal, just give up too easy.
