People seem to be forgetting we were playing the BC LIONS.
Let's be honest here, Ray was getting as much if not more pressure against him yesterday from Edmonton. Hamiltons Oline didnt look that good either. We'll see how calgary and montreal looks later.
I honestly Dont know what people expected,
When Steve Morley is the most experienced guy on the Oline and after that, its Greaves, who was starting his 4th or 5th game.. I dunno.
Did Pierce look good? NOPE. were receivers getting open? i dunno.
Did Dorzon help out at all? Not really. Saw him blow a block several times, several.
When you go into week 1 with Taormina,Swiston and Kowalczuk all starting their first ever cfl games, 2 being tackles.. this is what happens.
No team would have the depth on the oline if 2 of their tackles went down.
That was BC we played. People need to remember and recognize that.. BC LIONS.
Instead of harping on the negatives.. why not look at the positives
Demond Washington,Bryant Turner and the entire Defense and Special Teams all looked great.
The O struggled yes but 3rd string running back and 3 rookie Olineman, 2 filling in for injured guys... man, I'll bet if thats Toronto,Hamilton,Edmonton,Calgary,Montreal,Sask...Bet the same thing happens.
Takes time for the Oline to gel, if people expected them to go out there and dominate, i dunno, Expectations were way too high.
Biggest bomber fan around but even i expected that one to get ugly when i heard january was out, Funny thing happened tho, Crappy oline,no Running game, yet.. we hung in there with the BC LIONS for 3 3.5 quarters.
Heres the crazy part, Washington returns that ball to the bc 20, refs dont make the weak call on the hold, even tsn said it was weak,who knows what happens. They were in it for 3 3.5 quarters. That to me, with a rookie oline, 3rd string rb.. man, what more can you expect?
