This last half of the season is going to be do or die for the Riders, they have a tough second half of the season playing teams like Toronto, Montreal, BC, and Edmonton. The Riders are going to have to find a way to win these games or we can kiss the 2005 season goodbye.
The one thing that is sticking out like a sore thumb for the riders is Nealon. Nealon looked VERY promising the first two outings this year versus Winnipeg and Toronto but going on a 5 game losing skid and getting pulled out in 3 of those games is a pretty blatant sign that Nealon just isn't getting it done anymore.
This is proffesional football, if you can't get your job done there should be someone else brought in to do it for you. We've gave Nealon his chance, I supported him for a long time, in fact I supported him up until after our loss to BC Saturday night but now I am just fed up like almost every other Rider fan out there.
Our defence is starting to pick up there play they had a stellar game on Saturday against arguably the leagues most explosive offence. Our special teams is very consistant and sometimes can show flashes of brilliance. But our acchilles heel is our offence, you can bet your bottom dollar that every other team in the CFL knows that too and that weakness is keyed on.
So to summarize my entire rant in two words: [u]Start Crandell[/u]
