Well Rusty, as you no doubt know I'm a Montreal fan first, Hamilton 1A. So I'm glad my team won. But..............
From the Ticats perspective Taaffe is really giving me concerns; it's the options that scare me more however.
For Taaffe, at times last year and last night he looked totally lost. Penalties such as illegal formation, which the team took way too many of last year and did it again last night, to me, speak to a coach who has no control of his bench. If the FG team doesn't know who they are and where to line up..........what the heck have they been practising??
But if you sack Taaffe, who comes in? Obie himself? At his age, I doubt he'd want to come back to the bench again. Next you'd look to the 2 coordinators, but that's scary.
Creehan? He ran one of the worst defences last season in Calgary and got canned because of it. That makes him HC material? Not in my books.
Bellefeuille? He was hated by the Saskatchewan fans because he ran a boring, dull, predictable offence there; then in Montreal last year all of us Als' fans hated him for the same darn reason. From what I saw of the Cats' offensive package last night, it's more of the same; the man's continued employment in the CFL is a mystery to me.
Let's face it, if the team goes 0-3 Obie won't have a choice but to tie the can to Charlie, but then the big question is who do you bring in?
I'll wait by my phone, but I don't really expect a call..............
