Posted this in the other thread but I would like to properly burn the witches with my post :cowboy:
I am frustrated right now so be aware some negatives are incoming.
-Special teams units has taken any fun out of a Speedy B return because they always seem to get called for a penalty of some sort, and although Maher was money on FGs, that onside kick was brutal you just can't do that, that is the one thing you can't do.
-The defensive backfield just seems soft, we get beat for jumps balls time and time again, plus I don't know how many times I saw Dean or Simoni cleaning up on missed tackles by our d-backs. Sermons has not impressed me at all, that first TD was bad he won't have fun watching that again in the film room
-Not that it ultimately mattered, but why in the world do you go for a two-pt convert when you're down by 11 with the clock running out, I am still trying to figure out the upside other than either hoping you end up winning by 1 instead of tying with a field goal, or trying to play for a single point for the tie with another converted touchdown ...I don't I am confused just typing this trying to figure it out.
-Penalties, penalties, penalties, just killed ourselves tonight over and over and over and over and over etc.
-We still need to establish an actual running attack, CJ ran the ball 4 times tonight ...doesn't help CJ also dropped three very catchable passes but I feel like Kent doesn't allow CJ to get into a rhythm early in a game.
Alright I think I am done with my super serious bullet points, in the grand scheme of things we competed with the best team in the league and Zach had a hell of a game aside from the ugly pick that thankfully got called back. This team is a very good team and the offence has potential to be lights out but just feel like the team is holding themselves back from being great with silly mistakes. The East has been playing bad football as of late and Cats could have established themselves heading into Labour Day and if we swept the Argos could have been sitting pretty at 7-4. Now we got to hope for a 6-5 record and the team starts to hit their stride heading into the playoffs, as we all know it's not about who starts the season hot.
Lots to clean up heading into LDC but I hope we go tear the Arblows a new in the next couple weeks and stake our claim for first in the East. Some huge games coming up down the stretch against Toronto and Ottawa, I can't wait.
