like PC45 said. the points we're off turnovers. you saw Goss turn two INTs into TD's right?
You saw Tisdale/Knowlton turn two INTs each right? you saw Tisdales nice TD right? You saw Patrick Sack Ray twice right?
so my question to you was... What game we're YOU watching.
I'll admit they didn't come through when needed. thats why I said "Minus the 2nd & 13 thing".
5 tackles? Led the team in tackles? All over the field. Sounds like a guy named Zeke Moreno. But according to some on this site no matter how well a Ticat linebacker plays it doesn't mean he's good. Afterall, he's playing on the worst defense in the league with no d-line so of course he's going to have a lot of tackles. Doesn't mean anything right?
Zeke leads the league in tackles and has a few sacks and interceptions and at least one touchdown as well, so Anthony didn't put the argument to rest tonight by any means. He played ok and I think he is a good linebacker. I've wanted him in the LB corps since they signed him because that's what he is, but not at the expense of the defensive leader. It's the one step forward two steps back syndrome we have here in Hamilton. God forbid that we have both of them out there. He could've taken the lamp post's, i mean, Mariuz's spot. Oh well, I digress.
Anthony played pretty well but I saw him get blocked right out of the play or come in late many times. The big run up the middle for a touchdown when Edmonton only needed a couple for the first down, they got about 15 for the touchdown - the running back is the middle linebacker's duty on that one. Yet, he was nowhere to be seen. He stumbled into the picture late. I also saw him get blocked out on the goal line. So, yeah he played not a bad game and I do like him. But it doesn't make up for trading your top tackler for nothing. It's not even about whether Anthony will be an adequate replacement...we traded the defensive captain, league tackle leader, for nothing.
Oh wait - we all know why he's the leading tackler, right? :roll: . So it comes back to the question - can we really consider anything Anthony does to be good, on the worst defense in the league? Some will say no. Welcome to the starter's world in Hamilton Anthony.
I really couldn't have said it better myself. Why on earth would we want to have Moreno AND Anthony?? :roll: I think Anthony did a good job at points and was a little rough at other points. I have nothing against Anthony, but I still don't like the Moreno give-away (can't even cal it a trade)
