We beat ourselves through stupid penalties.
Although our offence moved the ball, almost every passing play was underneath. I thought we had upgraded our receivers this year? Shouldn't those upgraded receivers have been able to get open deep? Jason took too much time to throw the ball sometimes (due to the receivers not getting open?). The only pass that was more than 10 yards downfield, that I remember, was the bomb to Ralph in the first quarter. We were fortunate to complete it.
Defensively we seemed to get weaker as the game wore on. Not sure of the stats, but I think the time of possession was really in the blue team's favour in the second half. The D just seemed to run out of gas. Our DB's have not been upgraded over last year. The blue team receivers seemed to get open way too often. We are fortunate that a couple of overthrown long balls kept a couple of TD's off of the scoreboard.
Special teams we seemed to cover fairly well, however early in the game it looked like we tried pooching kicks to help with the cover game. Not sure how that's supposed to work, though. We took the option of taking the ball on the 35 after successful field goals by the blue team. Why is this when we have the CFL's special teams player of 2005 (Corey Holmes) on the team. Why is Craig Yeast still returning kicks? Although a great receiver, he doesn't look too good in this role.
Sorry for the length of the post. I found it to be very therapeutic.
