that was a must win in my books for the esks with the rest of the west catching up, the stamps were only 2 points behind so this combined with a stamps loss widens the gap. Great game Jason Tucker and my man AJ GASS kicks butt as usual! Bravo Hayden! way to hit those field goals! cudos to the eskies D too! really shut things down, turn overs and costly penalties hurt us, but i was overall impressed tonight and we seen flickers of a esky run game! cant wait to see what jenkins can do. Bravo Eskys!
I was pulling for the Als but it wasnt meant to be....Edm just has too many weapons...imagine what they could do with a real running back.. I dont think Jenkins is the answer but thats my opinion.... He is Injury prone and doesnt have the offensive line to open the holes, but no harm in trying him out cant be any worse than McClenon
Will be interesting to see what happens in Montreal now they are losing, they are not a bad team just poorly coached... the Dons arrogance once again cost them.. (2) 3rd down gambles botched by ridiculous play calling and they throw a guy who hasnt played a down of professional football to the Wolves (Tucker).
Ah yes the Don and his arogance again.
You guys just love to blame him dont you? I still stand by him. He is not the winningest coach in the CFL for nothing. As for the so called bad play calls, he doesn't call them A.C. does. Its amazing how everyone forget the good calls and lingers on the bad ones. The Als are having a bad year for the first time is almost a decade. SO-what did anyone expect them to finsh first from now untill the end of time.
The reg-season may be a bust this year but the playoff are yet to come.
Well that show you know what you are talking about.
Montreal in 3rd has the same record as Calgary in 3rd and they both have a better record than your team that if was in the east would be IN LAST PLACE :lol:
Props to all of the 44,000 fans who went to the game. I was there and man what an atmosphere that many people makes. Highest attendance for Edmonton and the CFL so far this year. Two weekends from now when Clagary comes there should be 55,000 + . If only football was as popular in other Canadian cities this league would be flourishing!
I have to agree with most that you say........but the season is far from over and you never know..........ALLEN , could go down , OTTAWA could have a major losing streak...........I think that MONTREAL will beat OTTAWA....next week.
That is the beauty of the CFL...........just make it to the CFL 's second season and who knows.?
BUT, I have to question the DON on those........2 ..........3rd down gambles early in the game.........now, if they had made those he would be a genius , but because Montreal didn't make them..........those failed attempts were momentum killers for ,MONTREAL.
Having played foot ball myself for many years..............those 3rd down stops give the other team a huge lift.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Don't count Montreal out yet. Last 3 years they started the season 8-1 who is to say they cant finish this season 8-1?
They would finish with a12-6 record and possibly first place. I know it wont happen but anything can and usually does
