Title says it all. My man Greene is back so look out Montreal!!
Corey did well, as usual and our D (Perry) certainly had some bright moments but all in all this was not a great showing by the Riders. Nealon lived down to all of our expectations (I'm not sure his O-numbers make it into triple digits).
If we can pull it together, get Crandell back at the helm I think we may actually have a shot here. At least until we hook up with Edmonton in the Grey Cup.
OMG amazing, our defense played amazing!! cheers to robinson for that pick!! cheers to holmes for 3rd all time top all around yards!! WOWOWOWOWOWOOWOWOWW goooooo riders!:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Well he got the touchdown ..I'll give him that..he played a very typical Nealon Greene game....unspectacular at best.. I only wish he could learn to complete the long ball...
The Defense Basically won this game.... again NO touchdowns scored against us....Robinson looked solid as well as the D line...NATE IS BACK.
As for Montreal.. Crandell should be ready to go..IF he falters early I expect Barrett to put in Greene....EIther way this win was hugh for us..
Nealon did what he had to tonight. Nothing more and nothing less. I still, as always hate the playcalling. Everytime we ran the ball we were picking good yards, but we rarly ran it. Still no sign of Szarka this game. Travis Moore played like a true allstar, picking up the big catches.
Even French picked up his game finally..Yes Moore will be the Key..any Rumors on Domingueuz ? Man we need him badly..
I say keep Nealon in against Montreal, he got better as the game progressed and other than the deep throws threw the ball well. The major issue all season has been the playcalling, not who has been quarterbacking the team. Crandell is better at the deep ball, and about the same as Greene at the short and medium stuff, but he's only slightly more mobile than Danny Mac.
the recievers finally made catches when they had to ? ? ?
that is the key to the riders success not to many droped balls by the recievers ? ? ?
that is where Travis Moore shines because he doesnt drop catchable balls ? ? ?
so it doesnt mater who the QB is if the recievers are catching the balls and not playing dropsys ? ? ? ?
Greene completed a pass…to Jason French…I nearly crapped myself…
I don’t think Greene played anywhere close to an outstanding game, but I do think he looked more confident yesterday than he has since the beginning of the season. I’d still start Crandell next week in Montreal, and use Greene for second/third and short situations.
[quote="jm02"]Greene completed a pass.....to Jason French.....I nearly crapped myself.....
its more like Jason french finaly caught the ball and not drop it ? ? ?
Greene threw 20 yard passes to both Thurmon and Richardson dead on the money and 0 interceptions. Although give the receivers credit, it is very nice to see the receivers catching for once. That being said If Greene is not the starter against Montreal I will be very disappointed.
If Greene is the starter against Montreal. I will be very Disapointed. They got 13 points. We will not win against Mtl's high powered Ofeence with 13 points. Crandell did awesome against Montreal when they played.
Crandell is the only reason we made it to the play offs. He deserves to start against Montreal. Nealon played good against B.C. but Nealon has proved himself to be inconsistent. Crandell again is inconsist but even when he is off his game he gives us a chance to win.
I think Crandel should start, but I am more worried about French and the rest of the gain of butter fingers ability to catch the easy ones.
Congrads you guys on your win!
Where was Travis Moore all season? He was a reliable receiver for you guys. I think Morre held onto everything thrown to him!
I say Crandell will be better for you guys than Nealon.
WE HAVE A GREAT TEAM EXEPT OUR QBS.CRANDEL SUCKS BUT GREENE IS THE WORST QB IN THE CFL.I WOULD TAKE MCANUS BEFORE GREENE.IF GREENE STARTS IN MONTREAL THE RIDERS SEASON IS OVER.IF WE START CRANDELL AND GET AHEAD QUICK WE MIGHT WIN IF WE FALL BEHIND EARLY DONT COUNT ON CRANDELL TO MAKE A COME BACK.GREEN SHOULD BE 3RD STRING NEXT SEASON WE NEED TO GIVE UP ON HIM HE SUCKS WAKE UP WHAT HAS HE EVER DONE I DONT SEE A GREY CUP IN SASK.DOWN WITH GREENE HE SUCKS
.....but seriously, mike.....tell us how you really feel.....
im sorry that i hate greene but he has let the riders down too many times. defences know he cant throw.i thought a year off he would have done nothing but throw but his game (prev to bc)showed all he did in rehab was try to run. he is a let down.
