That game last night was another winnable game, just like last week against Grey Cup champs BC. I have no idea what Maas’s problem is (not fully rehabbed, longing for the wife in Edmonton, new coaches, new playbook, new team mates…) nor do I care. What I do know is that the team is now 0-5 and he can take a huge amount of the blame for that. Last night was a prime example—no TDs. It’s hard to win without putting up any TDs in a game. Bad passes to open guys. After every bad play (many his own), he shows his frustration and disgust on his face, throwing his arms around, looking skyward, even stomping the ground. That can’t be much of a confidence builder for the guys around him. No cool, collected leader here.
So, if the Cats are going to lose I’d rather do it with a guy who has an upside and a future in Hamilton. Sure, they may still lose more than they win with Chang at QB but it’s like an investment. You figure there will be a payoff down the road----a young, 1st string QB with experience. Almost 1/3 of the season’s gone and the team is winless. If this was a hockey team, don’t you think the backup goalie would’ve gotten a chance by now to see if he could spark a win?
0-5!!! How bad does it have to get?
We have tickets for Aug 3 and I’m hoping like h*ll that I see Chang at QB.
