This game was closer than it should have been, IMO. If Joseph had actually completed a few passes to his receivers, they might have gotten a few more points.
Congrats go to Mike O'Shea who notched his 1.000th tackle in his career, which puts him at 3rd all-time. IMO, he is a future Hall of Famer, one of the most underrated guys in the CFL.
Danny Barrett should be drawn and quartered for leaving Joseph in the game. Its obvious that his injury is hampering his performance. If Crandell is ready to play, why not give him a chance to get into game shape? The last thing the Riders need is a cold QB to come into a playoff game because Joseph gets hurt, and the possibility of that happening is very real.
Kudos also should go to Kenton Keith, who has quietly put together a 1.000 yd rushing season. He has concentrated on football recently, and the results are showing in his play. I still think he will be gone before the next year, Bracey looks like he can take over for Keith and at a bargain as well.
I will say congrats to hellothere on the classy post as well. One last thing , the officials were not noticeable in this game, no controversial calls, no instant replays in the game either. Its the way every game should be officiated, but unfortunately they arent, but the officials deserve a big :thup: for one of their better efforts of the year.
One last thing, the Kick for a Million promotion was a huge bust. The guy did make a couple of field goals, but he had no chance on the longer field goals, no wonder he got picked to try the FGs. He did get $25 000 worth of stuff, but thats a lot cheaper than a one-time payout of a million dollars which the company probably did not want to dole out this time around.
