We can blame Jones, Masoli, D, Refs, ST for tonite and our overall record...but until we get this figured out, any other changes will be useless:
Hamilton Drive Starts Tonite: H35 (yard line), H26, H29, W55, H35, H6, H10, H19 - average starting point, our own 25 yard line, and 3 times inside our 20 (all during that second quarter where we did nothing)
Winnipeg Drive Starts Tonite: W28, H50, H26, W39, W45, W46, W35, H48 - average starting point, is their own 50 yard line, and three times on our side of midfield.
Right off the bat, their field is 25 yards shorter than ours...and as we know, and the coaches on here can confirm, your offense that you run from inside your own 20 is different from the one you run from your own 50.
I know a lot of things contribute to this - ST, TO's, play calling, PENALTIES...but until we start to even this out, this is what we are going to get
The stat of the game 13 penalties for 134 yards, 3 15 yarders from Westerman, O-line in crucial last series of the game 2 procedures and lack of ability to stop even a fairy. there are many more bad stats from a poorly coached team.
Anyone expecting miracles from Chris Williams may not have noticed that since his spectacular 2012 season with 5 punt return TDs (and a 14.3 yard average!), he has scored exactly zero, with a long of 22. Not that it's his fault - others haven't had much more luck for us this year.
You are kidding , right? "elite QB & fabulous supporting team"...you must be dreaming of a "perfect scenario" which just isn't possible. Football is full of variables at all positions. We have a top notch QB and a good defense...a little work on the O-line and special teams we will be very good.
Westerman is garbage. He's got nothing between the ears. His reputation for taking skull crushing penalties hasn't taken much of a beating in Hamilton. Worst trade the Cats have made this year. I'm sorry the Cats brough his problem ass in here.
We moved the ball on the first drive 76 yards for a TD. I'm not sure anyone can do that every drive. Our punter never flips the field nor do returners. We give up generous returns due to bad punt coverage and poor punt placement.
