HINT: No one ever dumped a truckload of manure on Troy Westwood's lawn after the playoffs.
It's too bad that unlike hockey, you can't just dog it in the regular season and show up in the playoffs. The FG kicker needs to be consistent all year. 2007 was by far Troy's worst year in the regular season (60.6%). I hold Dave Berry responsible for part of that, as I hold Dave Berry personally responsible for every failure of the Bombers in his tenure, especially for losing the Grey Cup last year--I want him run out of town on a rail, tarred and feathered.
These are Troy's regular season stats. You can definitely see that he took his FG kicking to another level in the playoffs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troy_Westwood#Career_stats
Don't be surprised if he ends up with a team like the Argos and puts a dagger through the heart of some of your favorite CFL teams one more time. Say what you will about Troy in the regular season, but in the playoffs, he's a cold-blooded assassin that will strike your team dead if you give him the chance.
