a 2-4 record on the season, with just two touchdowns and 40 points total in their last four games, as well as a league-worst 106 points
Hogtown's offensive lineman Rob Murphy probably summed it up best after the game.
"To get shut out in the CFL is virtually unheard of," Murphy said. "It's embarrassing, especially the way the defence played. It's a shame."
funny, I thought it was the offence who was supposed to the points on the board. Wow, was it not the O-line and Murphy in particular, getting burned and manhandled all game, almost at the expense of their QB? This is from TSN.ca story about the Argos today. I beleive this is the only quote from Murphy in it though. So I guess it's possible I could be looking at it the wrong way.
I put down the bag long enough to reread the quote from you're point of view, and you're right! But then I picked back up that bag and remembered I also said:
"I beleive this is the only quote from Murphy in it though. So I guess it's possible I could be looking at it the wrong way."
I liked Kerry Joseph's quote from that article more: "It's frustrating," Joseph said afterwards. "We have too much talent to be getting beat like we are." Seriously? What talent? They've downgraded big time on special teams, they don't have a receiver worth mentioning. Where is this talent? Rob Murphy? Watch out now!
That’s his way of saying he’s ready to keep going to war with his teammates. Chad Lucas , Robertson, P.K Sam, Rob Murphy, Dom Picard these are all talented guys. They just aren’t playing well and I don’t think the scheme suits them particularly well.
Dorsey will likely be back as well. Their Defense is top 3 in the league so far, their new kicker is awesome. They need guys like Lucas, Robertson, Payton, Mcneil and Sam to step up and make plays.
The Oline needs to a new coach. like today…they have proven talent there and they are not playing well so something has to change.
It's not just this year that Murphy has been an obvious stiff, I noticed him last year in BC. He was getting beat on a regular basis.
He was done then, obviously the Argos again did not do their homework by failing to study the film.
Wally didn't let him go, it was obvious from the outset of free agency that Murphy wanted out of Vancouver and to be out East to be closer to his home and family. Wally had no choice about Murphy, Logan, and Wake, he let go of Clermont and Tyrone Williams.
Murphy is looking like the free agent bust of the season, although Clermont and Williams aren't doing much for their respective new teams either.
Offensive linesman can be a tough adaptation I would give him another six games at least. Tyrone has been cut ans is retired. Clairmont looks almost ready for retirement of course none are making close to 190k.
