IT is not time to start nailing the panic button yet. The Riders have what, a whole 3 games under their belt this season, with a revamped offense in some key positions. Give them a little more time to gel before you start dooming the entire organization.
The defense put in a lackluster effort this past weekend and because of this fact the Riders got spanked by a team that just 1 week ago, barely got by Hamilton. There is no let them gel excuse for a defensive squad who has been playing together for at least 2 to 3 years. The defense played very poor football for which there is no excuse. My only hope is that Richie Hall lites a fire under their asses before this weekend.
Give it till week seven and if the Riders go 1 and 5 then good luck hitting the panic button because I will be there hitting it.
Note: Hamilton pulled the trigger on firing Greg Marshall. When was the last time you ever saw a Head Coach fired in Regina mid way through the season? I think it was mid 80's when it happened to Faragelli.
