8) The only highlight play I saw last night was that spectacular, over the head catch by Arlan Bruce of the Argos !!!! As far as the Cats are concerned, they have given us absolutely no highlites at all in the last 2 home games !!!!!
The "other" highlight play to me was when Pat Fleming nearly scored a TD when he chased that punt into the endzone. I sit at the other end of the stadium and I thought he had it! It was some great hustle anyway.
Yes, that was amazing catch by Brock Ralph in what was an otherwise uninspired and underprepared performance by the Ticats in the biggest game of the year.
However, the highlight play of the game was early in the game when the referee ruled that Damon Allen's fumble was an incomplete pass. That play created the first negative vibe in the stadium. With the subsequent inept performance of the Ticat offence, that negative vibe lingered and grew as the game wore on.
Yep!...that almost worked too!....the returner looked shocked... :lol:
Now that you mention the kicking game, how about that "almost miracle" field goal attempt?.....the replay showed that Eakin pretty much had to stand right up to field the ball, get back down and spot the ball while Jamie had to put the brakes on and then take a wild swipe at the ball way off balance.....it darn near went through too! (lucky the big return got called back)
I think the Brock Raplh catch is a suitable offensive highlight because of its value as a metaphor for the whole night. An outstanding, highlight reel effort gained us all of ... TWO YARDS. In other words, even if everything goes perfectly, the plays we choose still are not anywhere near close enough for a first down. It's hard to win when "Plan A" is two-and-out.
