Well at first surprised the Riders won but after watching the replay of the game it is easy to see why they won. The Stamps handed it to them in possibly the Stamps worst performance in 5 years. Burris played horrible and the only guy who played well was Reynolds. Missing Rambo is killing the Stamps.
For all of you that are loving Durant after the win, here is the good news; "He probably played the best game of his CFL career"; now heres the bad news "It's still not good enough to be a starting quarterback in the CFL". Take away the last past to Getzlaf and the first drive of the game and Durant did absolutely nothing. I think Jyles looked better (going into a very strong wind). Take that and the fact that Calgary gave the Riders the game and we are still very shaky at QB.
Other thoughts on the game:
Rider defensive line - Did they take the night off?
Rider Offensive line - Much improved
Clermont - showed up but we need to get him the ball more
Walker - Fast and quick with lots of moves but sometimes runs out of from under his feet
Cates - Great first half but looks like he has lost a step
Dressler - I wish every Rider played with his intensity
Donovan Alexander - This kid can play, Rookie of the Year material.
