Montréal was due for a whoopin'.
They can beat the Western teams, there's no question. The west is just as beatable to Toronto, Winnipeg and even Hamilton.
Simple, Montreal played a great game against Toronto last Sunday, and before they know it, they were in Calgary. It was just one of those nights where nothing was going right, and nothing could work. Every team has one of those games. I'm glad it happened now, at this point in the season, where this can only do good for the team, then bad, as they still have a 9 point lead over the Argos in the standings.
Jason Tucker was proclaimed as the Als killer, I have to say Henry Burris get's that name now. You never know if good Henry or bad Henry shows up, but for some reason, whenever it's Montréal, it's always good Henry.
It's really sad how this Defence can't recognize a screen. Every time a screen play is called against us, they pick up minimum 20 yards. And the scheme last night was disgusting. Against a mobile QB like Burris, you need run stop support. Plenty of times, they played with NO middle linebackers. All Burris had to do is run behind his centre and get's an easy first down.
107 yards for a TD on 5 plays! Wow. You can't blame this Defence though. Dropped passes, Calvillo throwing 3 INTs, Larry Taylor fumbling at the 1. These are uncharacteristic of this team. That's why I know, "it was just one of those nights."
Basically, this was the 07' Als that played last night. This isn't the same squad that played this season. It's definately not the end of the world, and I think they will bounce back and have their way with the Esks next Sunday.
