As for the rest of your post on Reilly, within my question above about what is going on in general, I have that same question as I believe do others but of all I have read there are not many answers.
From what I can glean after watching the highlights from the second half, Reilly's arm would not have been alright even had the injection he took had worked.
He was throwing quackers all night. Shame on the Riders' secondary for allowing some of those completions.
When a QB throws a quacker, and this goes back to higher level high school ball, a solid defensive back will go right to ball not worry so much about the receiver because a good receiver is doing the same. It becomes more a game of jump-ball. I saw an awful lot of flat-footed staring at wounded ducks by those defensive backs of the Riders.
And so back to Reilly and what in the heck is going on with him?
