Masoli is no longer a starting-calibre quarterback.
The man simply cannot throw an accurate pass. Watford should be our guy until Dane is healthy, because Masoli is simply a liability at this point.
Turning the ball over in OT is inexcusable. ST-E should be benched next week for that.
Our Defense was gassed at the end of the game, but the idea of only rushing 3 D-linemen while MTL has TWO backups and a DT playing G on 2nd-and-20 should be a firing offence. That decision is on Washington, and should be his last.
Okafor went down with injury, and there wsa no drop in play by the backups. Tells you something about our O-line - our Co-GMs continue to poop their bed on this file.
I have crapped on Bertolet, but he pulled off a clutch kick to send us into OT. Too bad our Offence is so craptacular that his effort was wasted.
Things masoli can no longer accomplish:
- Throw an accurate pass to the flats;
- Throw an accurate screen pass;
- Throw an accurate pass more than 6-yards downfield;
- Accurately hand the ball off;
- Be mobile in the pocket;
- Recognize defences (he hasn't recognized a blitz in 8 years);
- Look off defenders;
- Get rid of the ball instead of taking a sack (double-edged sword, as he's prone to INTs doing that); and
- Running. The. Ball.
2019 was the best Masoli will ever be. It seems as if he has no confidence in his repaired knee - I have the same problem.
Without a half-capable Offensive Line, NO QB will be effective. The team's Front Office has pi$$ed away our best chance of playing in the Grey Cup. This is pure incompetence.
Things that went well in this game: Addison had a great game; the Defence played well enough to win, if only the Offence did their jobs; Dunbar had a nice catch (on a bad pass, no less); and our STs were blocking better on returns.
Things that went poorly: O-Line, Masoli, turnovers, poor play calling, the sheer inability of a downfield pass, Speedy being invisible, Frankie and Okafor getting hurt, etc.
While we may make the playoffs by the skin of our teeth, I have no hopes for a playoff win. There are three teams in the West that would simply embarrass us in the GC of we make it that far...
