I think the loss was a direct result of questionable play calling.
Too many predictable running plays to Colbourne. Not enough passing plays. This is the CFL man!
Why does Burris never roll out, just drop back into the pocket? Play to his strengths. When they were in the red zone, Colbourne was open coming out of the backfield, but instead Burris throws into tight coverage, if I recall correctly.
The defence didn't play badly, until the 4th quarter. We had decent pressure and sacked Buck at least 4 times. But, every other time we came close to a sack, he would dump it to his RB for a 1st down.
Burris is still near the top in QB stats in the league. We have arguably the best receiving corp.(please start Stala...how does Guigerre start over him), strong Linebacker, strong Running Backs and a strong Return game.
How do we have a losing record?
There's still hope if the players can believe in themselves...I thought last week was the beginning of that.
