Gordon is a much better Cornerback than people are giving him credit for. He had a bad game but still held his own is some ways. You could see from watching the game on TV that he had Watkins respect out there. I saw them give each other props a few times.
After watching the video, it seems that if Gordon could have kept his feet on that TD play, he may have had a pick. It was a poorly under-thrown ball and, until he tripped, Gordon was in perfect position. We may have been having a different discussion about him if he had picked that ball.
I think the criticism of the defense is over blown. The defense was on field all night. If you take away 20% of the Argos time of possesion you likely take away 20% of thier points. 30 -20% equals hmmm 24.. Thats not too terrible. If we can't score more than 10 it won't matter anyway.
Mariuz would be a worse player with more weight. He is only 3 inches taller than Armour was and is 5 pounds heavier. He is only 1 pound lighter than Lumsden and only 1 inch taller. How can you possibly think he is too small? He is the perfect size for a WILL LB.
