I just feel like reinforcing this point. Before I do, though, I will fully admit that Chad Owens had a spectacular night against us in our game, and I take no shame in this defeat. The Argos played like a winning team should.
However, one stellar performance by Chad Owens shouldn't be having us look back at the trade as some sort of terrible mistake. Like discipline said, our receiving corps is one we take pride in, and there isn't much room to be adding in new players. Richardson, Bratton, Watkins, Cahoon, Cobourne, and now Green this year have all shown and proven themselves why they're worth their spot on the team. Simply because the Argos have used him well, this doesn't mean he would have met the same success with the Als. Trestman could well have been hesitant to use him, especially knowing the success Green has had, which has only solidified his position on our team.
I'm glad that Chad Owens is with the Argonauts, because he's doing well with them, and he's realizing his potential, which I would hope for out of any player in the CFL. But we have a solid team, and we've shown it numerous times before. One loss isn't going to sway me from thinking that. As all teams do, we occasionally fail to execute. When it happens, you simply need to put it behind you, and think about the next one. And that's exactly what the Argos set out to do. They didn't want revenge. They wanted a win.
But we'll get 'em back. We've got two more games with our Eastern rivals. We'll show 'em who the real Beasts of the East are.
