Well, I think I'll keep my posts down to a precious few.
This has been the most aggravating season I can recall. I have been an Als fan for years and suffered with the losing seasons... But this edition of the Als takes the cake! One would think that with the all-time passer in football history, the league's leading receiver, leading rusher...we would fair better in the W-L column. Frankly, a couple of Ws this season could quite easily have gone the other way!
I realize that we have had major problems with the secondary, but the fact of the matter is that we just couldn't sustain drives, and AC (sigh!) was once again off his game, despite what the final stats may say. Jamel dropped a sure TD, although it was zipped, and we got beat deep - often! So, AC didn't lose the game all by himself. I am frankly befuddled why AC isn't yanked when he isn't producing, at least for a few series. Opposing DCs have figured out our O schemes by this point and things simply aren't getting better. Today's game was a clone of last week's.
In spite of this, we still have a shot, but it is a long shot at this point. Traditionally, we don't do well in BC, and Winnipeg still has to lose their final game against the Stamps. Frankly, I am not optimistic about our chances for a 3-peat any more! I would dearly love to be proved wrong on this one, but I just don't see the chemistry there any more.
Well, Mr. Trestman, you've been a great coach, but now you will definitely have to earn your salary. All's not well in Alsville and you're going to have to pull a few rabbits out of your hat!
