The Eskimos are a confused team particularly on offense and Kavis Reed must accept full responsibility. This game may be the worst but the lack of clarity in player assignments makes one wonder if the Riders 13 man Grey Cup debackle is more explainable. For the Eskimos to come onto the field for a last second field goal with the wrong personnel was a head scratcher. Particularly after wasting their time out seconds before. Reed just doesn't understand clock management and frankly neither does Marcus Crandell. Then to top it all off, after the time out, to come onto the field with the wrong kicker and end up with a block and 6 the other way. This was a total gong show
Fast forward to the third quarter third down gamble. A Hamilton player was down with an injury, the Eskimos have a ton of time and then had to rush the play and turn the ball over on downs when everyone was again totally confused is inexcuseable. TSN commentators said that Hamilton had shut down Edmontons rushing game. That was totally false, Edmonton shut down Edmontons rushing game. After just 8 carries they abandoned any semblance of a rushing game.
Bottom line is Reed should be fired, he simply has not shown he is smart enough to make critical coaching decisions. Crandell has to be fired, the Eskimo offense does not know what players are supposed to be on the field and when they get the right personnel, they don't seem to understand what to do. The Crandell experiment needs to end and it needs to end now!
