Brandon Stewart (dumb penalties - too slow to defend on the deep pass)
Mike Filer (poor blocking - a couple of sacks were on him)
Taylor Reed (takes too many dumb penalties - needs to apologize to Banks)
Disappointed that we came so close and fought so hard but we really got a bit too far behind in the first half. Zach did seem to be slow getting rid of the ball at times and that resulted in him being sacked. That last sack deep in our end, he couldn't see down field to open receivers when the pocket collapsed but that could have made the difference if he'd been able to get a good toss away then. I know by his reaction on the sidelines that Speedy B was crushed when his return was negated by that penalty.
Not unhappy for the Stamps who have played really well all season but I know it is a heartbreaking loss for our guys who have fought and worked so hard all season.
Apart from sharing in his disappointment on the return being called back, the rest of his actions are a head scratcher at the least for me and I am sure many fans. At least a puppy would get back to its owner when called back most of the time, but I digress.
There is no winner in this. Maybe he could have done something different, but why harp on it while the wound is fresh? You think those guys don't all feel like crap right now? But you still wanna rip on the guy from the comfort of your la-z-boy? When people suggest that Hamilton fans have no class, it's exactly that kind of passive-aggressive armchair crap they're referring to. "Is he a team player?" Would you walk into the lockerroom and say that to his face? (Hint: if you would, you're still a dick).
I thought that Banks was gassed after that return, and him being demoralized was another reason for that. It might have helped to have him.
The penalty will be talked about. But the team getting stopped short, making it easy for Medlock to get FGs (except on the one that got blocked) should also be mentioned. And Grigsby getting tackled for a loss on 2nd and goal from the 2? I see that that play call is already being criticized.
I wasn't sure if Cornish could be kept under control by this defence. They did quite well at that, but not so well against BLM who totally deserved to be named the MVP.
Well, congratulations again to the Stamps on the Grey Cup win. But credit goes to this Ticat team for staying in there and refusing to quit, even when it looked like they may get blown out by Calgary, just as Edmonton was last week.
It was a good year for this Ticat team, but just not quite good enough for the Grey Cup win.
If not for Banks would last weeks game be different, yes it could have been.
The guy got us back into the game today. If not for an unnecessary clip. He would have won this game for us today. The guy was devastated from the penalty with 30 seconds left, also very gassed. His loyalty should not even be questioned.
