well, I tell ya. It has been a long 3 months! there have been numerous times when I have so wanted to post a reply to someone that has seriously annoyed the hell out of me but I just had to resist. :rockin:
I for one am extremely troubled by the Roughriders and their extremely disappointing start to the 2011 season.
I just can't figure out how they allowed themselves to get to this point!
Durant has not been playing well, except for the Alouettes game and the Coaching staff has been sub-par.
they have made 2 very poor coaching decisions, the hand off with 46 seconds left vs the Alouettes. THEN allowing Durant to have the time count Violation penalty to occur!
which gave the Stamps 3 more points than they should have had in the first half.
I swear that Durant is showing us that he's not a very multi-dimensional player! He's managed to throw away 2 games all on his own!
Our defense desperately needs work! the rest of the league has found out that you can pass on us!
and now for the surprise! Eskimos at 5-0! ??
I truly did not think that they would be this far ahead... I figured it would take them at least 9 or 10 games to catch their stride but I must admit, even as someone who dislikes the Eskimos thoroughly I am impressed with the coaching job that Reed and his assistants have done and even more impressed with the level of Talent that Tillman has brought to this club.
Now the question is - how long does this last? I really do believe that the Esks winning streak will be coming to an end in Winnipeg, even with Pierce out of the game. (that guy, does he ever stay healthy???)
It's going to be a low scoring affair either way but I'm not saying absolutely the Bombers will win.
It's been a difficult season so far to enjoy. I wish the Best to Kornegay in B.C.... and I knew that Whitlock would be gone after the last game.
with his lack of discipline and his drops, you had to see it coming!, no?
But I'm happy the Bombers are first.. now if they can just maintain this with our without Pierce.
btw, I don't know who's going to win between Saskatchewan and B.C. it really depends on Berry and if he'll let Durant roll out more and run!
Btw, it is 2011 right? it's not 2001 again? because the Riders are looking like the Shivers/Barrett team.
