First of all, I hope that Matthew Shiltz is OK, but it certainly didn’t look good. My initial thought was torn quad or hamstring. I saw him sitting on the sidelines still dressed, but you never know.
All of a sudden we have a 2-game winning streak, and enough has been said aobut Edmonton’s woes.
This team had 18 net Offensive yards in the entire first quarter. That’s embarrasing.
McAllister looks to be a keeper.
Special Teams were not very good - too many stupid penalties.
George Jr, who is now known as Kenny G, had a pretty poor game, IMHO. Two dropped INTs and he got burned a few times.
Our Secondary simply cannot tackle. This just makes me shake my head.
The clock management - if you can even call it that - at the end of the first half was simply unprofessional. I know thay were originally playing to run-out the clock, but after that big run by Butler, there was no sense of urgency to make full use of the clock and have a good attempt at a TD. Instead, the team was rushed, and had to settle for a FG.
I would have benched Ternowski after the kickoff. A WR should have no problems fielding a kickoff, even if he “wasn’t ready” to do so. He’s on the frickin’ kickoff return team, and you have to be prepared for the football going anywhere. This was an inexcusable mistake from someone who is now a CFL veteran. I don’t care what his passport says, he’s a liability on this team, taking a roster position from someone who might actually be able to play football.
I’m not going to lie, my wife wanted Edmon to win for two reasons - to break their streak, and the hopes that El Presidente gets his arse kicked out the door sooner. She dislikes him even more than I do, and that’s saying something.
So now it looks as if we’re in the Powell Era. They’re going to have to find a QB with a pulse willing to play in the CFL, which could be difficult these days.
I DO want to give a shout-out to Kats - probably the easiest Pick-6 he will ever score… lol
