I'm wondering if maybe switching offensive coordinators was a mistake.
At first I thought Strasser was going to improve this offence (though I didn't think it needed to improve that much). He had them playing well in the LD re-match, and Edmonton had a chance of winning if the D could've gotten a stop or two. Then in the first half of the game against Saskatchewan the following week, the offence was unstoppable. Ray completed 16 of 16. But since then this offence has looked like crap. Ricky Ray looks like he's a little off with some of his throws. The receivers are blowing routes and dropping balls on a regular basis.
I just don't understand how an offence can take such a drastic turn out of nowhere. I'm wondering if maybe some of the players are a little unhappy with the switch... I mean, before the switch, Fred Stamps was becoming the go-to guy, making big catch after big catch. Now he can't hang on to anything.
I don't know... it just seems odd that the offence is falling apart all of a sudden, and switching coordinators is the only thing I can think of.
