Agreed - this game felt so long! I did notice that Lulay was starting for BC this week though. Any chance they'll do like Toronto did and start Lulay over Jennings in the playoffs?
Masoli definitely looked much improved from last year. I was one of the few who thought he had potential, but he had a tendency to over-play and try to do too much. I was a little disappointed when he was put on the PR and then both Mathews and Harris got the start ahead of him. He looked more accurate tonight than he did last year, too. Most of his incompletions were throws that, though maybe not always directly on target, could have been caught. The bad hand-offs weren't really his fault, probably due to not enough reps or experience and miscommunication. On the fumble, OL Lewis let Lemon right by him and he got Masoli from behind. I've seen many QBs drop the ball in that situation.
Anyway, despite losing... I feel okay with our chances in the playoffs. Even though I can't help but pick Hamilton to win every game, I knew our chances weren't good for this game starting a 3rd or 4th string QB on the road against a pretty good (and more importantly healthy!) Ottawa team. I think we showed enough today that we can still be a threat post-season.
And... we lost by more than 6, so the bad calls last game wouldn't have mattered anyway, which makes me less upset about them. Although, the reffing wasn't fantastic this game either... looking at you, "OPI" (need to make this challengable next year).
