There isn't really a way a bomber fan could blame this loss on the refs. The refs sucked completely...for both teams. There were missed and bogus interference calls on both the de and O. Their were lots of bad calls. At least from my vantage point in the stands.
Other then that. I would like to say that Dentor summed up the game fairly well.
Their were a few things that I would like to add. Marcel finally used some different formations. We went into both some singleback tight end sets (with szarka playing tight end and Kenton alone in the back field and Crandel behind center). Also some I formation sets. We passed and ran out of both of these sets, and we did very well with them. FINALLY. I was getting a little sick of seeing shotgun draws.
Crandel played ok. he threw quite a few BAD balls, but luckily they were overthrows out of bounds and such, instead of into a bombers hands.
Another thing is the bombers should thank #37 on the Riders secondary. I forget his name, he is new. BUt he dropped 2 interceptions, one tough, the other easy as hell. The bombers got a TD and a FG right after these missed picks. thats 10 points that should not have gone up on the scoreboard. But other then that our new Defenders di look very good. #46 Jones, played very well expecially.
I don't see E. Davis having any problem keeping his Job though Dentor, especially after last night. He played Awesome.
It was good to see Kenton getting the Yardage we knew he could.
Also great to see Corey getting some good touches and that great return.
Getting Szrka into the game. was also quite huge, and a definite crowd plaser. Anyone else notice that everytime he got on the field the crowd was louder, and more electric.
Thinks aren't all roses and butter cups though, we still have a long road to climb, and a very hard schedule. We made strides to being a better team yesterday, but we are still not the best we can be.
We need some injury help too.
But all in all a good game. For us at least. I was very lucky to even get to the game. My stupid Car stalled in Regina about 15 muinutes from the field 40 minutes before game times. Luckily I got some kid in a minivan to drive us to the game, after we had walked a km and realised that there was no way we would make it by the start of the game, or even the 2nd qrtr.
So thanks to that kid.
Oh and advice. Try not to have your car break down on a sunday of a long weekend. Service options are very limited, and parts are non existent.
Needless to say my Car is sitting in Regina right now, and I took my Dad's gas gussling V8 truck home to s'toon.
Stupid car, prevented me from watching the 2 games today too.
