It was a great win last night.
The defense was awesome, the push up the middle from Dunbrack and Wayne was forcing Ray out of the pocket on nearly every play. Ray was rattled and missed open receivers several times.
The DBs played much better this week. The Esks receivers were tackled quickly and effectively whenever they caught the ball.
Special teams won the game for us, Devon Fowlkes was incredible, where have they been hiding that guy all year? Ticats downfield coverage on kick returns was superb.
What happened to the Edmonton coverage on the punt run back? When Fowlkes caught the ball, there was nothing but fresh air between him and the end zone.
DJ Flick showed us what a great reciever he is. The 44 yd catch was one of the best I've ever seen, he had to make a terrific adjustment to get to that ball.
Which brings me to the subject of Jason Maas. I don't want to take away from his win last night. The play selection was vastly improved, and finally we saw him finding and hitting his recievers on the short and medium length routes. I still have serious doubts about his arm strength and his ability to throw the long pass.
Flick had to turn and come back for the TD pass. On the 44 yarder he was in front of the DB and had to turn and adjust to make the catch, same for the almost catch by Peterson. All of Maas's other attempts at long throws were uncatchable.
It was great win, a very exciting finish and a superb effort by the whole team, but 179 yds of passing and zero pts in the second half won't get us in the W column too often. Maas has a long way to go to convince me that he should be our starting QB
