I was at the game and living here in Calgary I have been to just about every Lions game since I moved her in 2000 and this is the first one I have left early (in the 4th).Home field advantage on the line and nothing from the D.They had a couple of junior teams playing at half time and I would have taken their D over ours.
If I was Wally I would move Wake from the left to right side back and fourth during the game and teams would not be able to make the adjustment quick enough to double cover him.Any other player and I would say no but I think Wake could adjust easily.It would completely screw up the other teams offense and I think Wake would cream the QB and free up 1 or 2 of the other D line at times as well.
Here is what I really want to discuss as I believe it to be the reason why BC can not advance in the playoffs.I have a serious case of De ja vu with our QB situation.
Bucks ankle is still hampering him.He cannot throw the deep ball.I watched him miss bigtime yesterday with guys behing coverage.If a team cannot stretch the other teams D then it is over as evidensed by yesterdays game where 90% of the plays were 15 yards and under.Most of you probably don't realize that up until midway thru the second quarter Peirce only had 9(thats right)9 yards passing.
Wally I think blew it again(here is my De Ja Vu)by not starting Jackson in the second half.Peirce can't run the ball with his bad shoulder and can't plant with a bad ankle and throw accurately way down field and Wally didn't hedge his bet with Jarious.Anyone seeing a vicious cycle in BC with QB injury issues?
