Fourth quarter collapse in epic proportions.....
Offense faltered, and defense got tired in fourth quarter. Not sure why the Riders didn't continue to run the ball more in the second half... Maybe coach didn't have faith in the new guys.
The Rider o-line had 3 more holding penalties that negated big plays at key times.. This lost momentum.
And can someone tell me what we gotta do on special teams to flip field position on kick returns?? Milo kicks it to 25 - 30, and Maver kicks it to the goal line.. The Riders are giving up 30 yards of field position every kickoff...
Rod Williams was beat all night, and Kerry Joseph needs more conditioning. He got tired as the game wound on, and the lack of oxygen in his brain caused problems in the fourth quarter (3 interceptions)
Bye week can't come soon enough IMO, I think even the fans in Rider Nation need a week off too.... Everyone come back for the Final week against Edmonton with a fresh attitude.
Positives for the game is that Getzlaf was involved again... He and Bagg both looked good. But in all honesty, the Riders will have to play mistake free football in the playoffs if they have any chance of getting back to the Grey Cup. The overall talent at some key positions is seriously affecting their ability to make mistakes, and still win the game
