With Powell starting, I really didn’t expect much.
He played fairly well in the first half, with Condell calling high-efficiency plays and making liberal use of Butler both running and receiving.
Godwin was having a good game, until his injury.
Powell doesn’t seem to have any “touch” on his deep passes. He missed every single one.
The Defence didn’t allow a TD until the 4th quarter, but looked completely gassed by then.
It’s a sad state of affairs when you are regularily using your backup QB as a completely useless WR. The guy can’t catch a cold, and they continue to throw to him.
Timmeh might as well have been invisible again. The guy hasn’t shown up at all the past three games.
I counted at least four Procedure penalties, as well as Locksley going offside on a pass pattern. There was also a “No End” formation penalty on ST. These penalties are inexcusable, especially at home.
With Diallo getting injured in the 1st. Of course, TSN thought it would be a better idea to show BLM in the stands than the injury on the field - not even a replay.
Stanbeck had over 100-yards rushing.
We are now firmly entrenched in third place, and hae lost the season series (and therefore tie-breaker) to Montreal. I highly doubt we will win the series against Toronto too. This means that in order to make the playoffs, we have to win enough games to avoid yet another crossover, and I don’t see that happening with these players and, especially, this coaching staff and Front Office.
Here’s a question:
Were there any pass plays in the 7-12-yard range attempted tonight? My my recollection, most were checkdown passes, WR screens, etc. When Powell was “allowed” to air it out, he missed pretty badly.
Was there nothing open in that range? Were players open, but not seen?
