After the LDC debacle, it got me thinking as to what it takes to make a winning team and so I wrote down four things I thought are needed for a winning football team, and whether we show any of these. So I thought I might call upon other fans who have more savvy than me for their opinions. Just maybe someone in charge of running this team will read this post and learn something. So here goes:
1.Team chemistry is extremely important where players are playing for the good of the team and not for any personal reasons. I think you will find that we need a collective team effort to be a winner. It seems that some guys are doing all the work while others are just going through the motions.
Great teams make a habit of doing the fundamental things extremely well. Such things as winning turnover battles, keeeping penalties to a minimum, winning field position etc. Maybe we could use some improvement here?
Solid defense. (a good one) High powered offenses might make the crowds go nuts but a good defense will keep us in every single game even when the offense is not playing as it should. I think if a team doesn’t have a good defense, they will lose when it counts the most. Yeah, uh, that’s us.
Good quarterback. (makes sense) I think since the qb handles the ball the most he must be capable of making solid decisions with the football. Good decision making, looking over the entire field, …I don’t know??
If you look at other CFL teams that seem to win when it counts, I can see some of this stuff, I’m not sure where we fit in with the above but I have my own ideas.
I’ve heard it said that a team with a star player is a good team, but a team without one is a great team. Figure this one out!
Anyway that’s all I have to say.
