Let's start with the head coach. Two games blown without using a winning challenge. Enough said.
Now Burris. Simply put, the most unprofessional quarterback I have ever seen.
Earlier in the year, he had a passed blocked. Was caught by a offensive lineman, who fumbled after the whistle to Burris. He proceeded to advance to a defensive lineman and do a little dance with him and then smile and pat him on the head. Did I mention that we were trailing by over 2 touchdowns at the time, and were late in the last quarter. He epitomizes what make the CFL look bushleague.
Last week he single handedly handed the other team the game.
Tonight against Montreal, he did nothing. Oh, sorry. I forgot the turtle moves especially when the goaline is in sight. Someone needs to tell him, he is not one of the elite quarterbacks in this league, and needs to put his head down and get every inch he can. If he get hurt, no problem, we will send in a another who will probably be a lot better. At the start of the year, based on the preseason, I would have released Porter, who has had enough chances, and started the third string quarterback who showed well, and use Burris as a backup. Burris seems to blame everyone else except himself for his misplays, based on his smile and attitude. I would love to see him actually get mad at himself when he makes obvious mistakes.
With him as quarterback, we will be lucky to make the playoffs let alone get to the GreyCup. Just another dissapointing year. Our owner and fans deserve a lot better.
While I'm ranting, lets mention that until last weeks game, with all the talented speed in receivers we have we very rarely threw down the field. Last week however in rainy conditions we throw downfield twice real early. Both failed. Playcalling is just not there. If we need ten yards, we throw for two, and get three. So depressing. I am almost ready after fifty plus years, to become an Argo (did I really say that) fan. At least they are exciting. If it wasn't for Chris Williams, we would not be in any game.
Thanks for listening. I will feel better until the next game. Please comment, I would love to hear them.
