It was a great win for BC if nothing else there is no way that with this team we should ever lose or even be in a close game with MR. HENRY BURRIS at the quarterback controls. From my other post, making BURRIS into a drop back passer is virtually a sure win vs CALGARY--
I stated that I believed that HENRY BURRIS is the worst professional quarterback playing today, as he has accuracy issues and cannot read a defense at all..
Case in point ANTHONY PARKER was wide open in the middle of the field, when I mean wide open, there was no one within a 35 yard DIAMETER of him. I would estimate that out of 1000 Qb's that likely all 1000 qbs could make that throw to PARKER who was so wide open. BURRIS overthrew him by 15 yards, and it was game over after that overthrow.
I must give the LIONS credit they are addressing every problem on the team and making the adjustments--
FOSTER is being used more, this guy is the RANDY MOSS of the CFL- he is so fast, a long strider with good hands, he is a HANDS CATCHER--
GORE is being used on the short routes now because GORE cannot judge a deep ball and does not seem to judge the ball well deep- However GORE is very good on the short crossers and hooks--
BRUCE and SIMON solid as always--
HARRIS is a speedster, get ready for some 40 plus yard runs from this guy who might be the fastest running back in the CFL by a longshot--
LULAY's deep balls are on TARGET- Better footwork, more fluid release, better follow through, more confidence and his deep balls are on target now-- There is no reason why we should not attempt at least 3 to 4 deep shots per game with this crew--
Defense- MITCHELL is an animal- He is so big and smashes the pocket, SMITH is a long lean athlete also--
ONLY concern is Philips was beaten a few times, he looked like he was asleep, but other than that the secondary was solid--
LAROSE is quietly becoming one of the best safeties in this league- He takes good angles and goes in hard and uses his helmet to nail guys also--
NICK MOORE IMO is a dissapointment, he hasnt showed much , wait till KIERRE JOHNSON comes back, this crew will be almost impossible to stop with the former Houston cougar speedster in the lineup-- There is no secondary in this league that can cover the Lions receivers-- Even Montreal who had good receivers is not even in our league anymore in receiver depth.
Reddick is a perfect linebacker also as he can cover and is big and will hit you hard--
O LINE is getting better, give LULAY TIME and the receivers will get open every single play--
I like what I see from the team, we are young, fast, and we have the right mix now of young players and veterans also-
Next weeks game vs SASK will be a huge test, if we can win that game, we will be looking good for a home playoff game-
