James Patrick missed two open field tackles. He was out of position at corner? Maybe his coverage was good..........I didn't watch that closely? But he missed two tackles, one of which Hughey Charles danced in for TD. You need to wonder if butler is going to stay around at safety.
You have to wonder what we get in return for trading Charles for futures? Using the Greg Carr/Matt 'Odonnell trade as a comparator we should easily get a 3rd round pick...........but you could justify a 2nd. Hugh helped that team last fall and has been their #1 guy this season. I hope that trades reaps benefits in the 2013 draft?????? Mr. Taman what do we get back in return?
PI calls - someone else mentioned this................70-80 free yardage courtesy the stripes. Those were very nasty calls.
O-line - Poor. Heenan got beat clean on one sack and Patty Neufeld got beat on another. Dom Picard got owned by Sewell on a 2nd and 1 run? So overall they had a bad day. I did not hear much of anything about Labatte and Fulton so hopefully the left side of the line graded out better? Best back in for Heenan.
Joe L - Did the guy play? Did we play with 11 or was out MLB out there?
D'line - got owned. This likely caused problems for our linebackers. Odell was held twice and the refs got the calls right. He was there causing pressure.
Tristan - is doing his best to make it tough for coaches to keep him out there. Fumble. This is why we see Dressler back there on punts sometimes? Because he just secures the ball.
Taj Smith - played good and used his speed for YAK yards..............but he still dropped a pass and that just deflates momemtum.
Getz - Played well and he blconks hard on running plays.
Schedule was a problem. Hard fought road victory last week and you turn around and travel after 4 days? Any other CFL clubs get this into their schedule?
Joseph played really well. When we gor pressure he used his feet and bought some time. The secondary can;t cover for 4-5 seconds?
Let's just say the stars and moon were against us from the beginning. We've lost all the tiebreaks againts western teams? Even if we beat BC we can't catch them and we won't tie them.
The easy path to Grey Cup is throught the east. I wish we could crossover. Really, two teams with best records whould get buy weeks (BC and Calg). Rider would host a game as would Montreal. Why does Montreal earn a buy? This really should get tweaked because they should be playing the first week of playoffs..........not reqarded with a buy............and Toronto would travel someplace to play (either Montreal or Regina?). Look back histocially and this case can be made..........top two teams in the league are usually 1-2 from the west?
