This was BLM’s first game off the IL, and he certainly looked like it.
OF COURSE he had to get injured on the second-last play of the game. Idiotic play-calling and execution, he could have simply fallen into the back of the line, or a quick kneel. Heck - giving up a Safety and punting the ball would probably have sealed the win.
FIVE interceptions, and three of them were completely his fault. Two were underthrows or floating balls, and the third was him being baited like a rookie.
Timmeh was responsible for the other two. The first he put forth zero effort, and the second wone hit him in the chest. He reminded me of Craig Yeast and his “alligator arms”.
The idiotic penalties are still a thing. I counted at least three Misconduct penalties, one of which extended a drive after we had stopped Ottawa. That one was on Edwards - a serial offender.
To me, the game balls go to Godwin, Duke, Kats, and Sayles.
We had eleven minutes of posession in the first quarter, and ended the game with a ten-minute deficit.
We had 12 rushes for a total of 24 yards. That’s embarassing.
We hae proven that we can beat Ottawa and Edmonton. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if that’s all we can beat, since BLM’s ankle injury looked BAD. It’s probably Powell’s team fom now on.
People seem to blame Condell for everything under the sun. The O-line was it’s usual incompetent self, with pure pylons at Tackle. Yes there have been injuries - to high-priced and underperforming Veterans (CVZ, Saxelid, Figs) who can’t seem to stay out of the trainer’s room. I can’t comprehend why this team can’t put together an Offensive Line to save it’s life. No depth, no ability to find replacements, no nothing.
As @Crash mentioned in the PBP thread, Condell utilized quick throws, slants, WELL EXECUTED bubble screens, everything you need to do with an O-line that cannot seem to block. Still, the Offence only scored one TD.
I think it’s time to wave the white surrender flag on this season.
