Only one thing left can save this season, a Grey Cup. Even though I feel that it's pretty chincy that an 8-10 team could win a title (I know that it's happened twice before) but that's the way it is in this league, it's the only way that this season could be called a success. They are hardly the best team in the league, they're not a bad team but they do have a more than a couple shortcomings.
An 8-10 record is about the absolute worst damn result for this season, because it guarantees that Taman will keep his job and ensure that this team will be between 6 and 9 wins for several years to come. It will be said, "things are going in the right direction, look at the improvement over last year". How the hell do you NOT improve over last year? A 3-legged dachshund with in-grown toenails could make a couple moves and improve on 5-13. The only hope for salvation is a perfect storm for a mediocre Rider team to get hot, catch an opponent or two on a bad day and snag a championship that everyone else will call fluke.
If they don't win it all this year, then the season could not have gone worse for this franchise.
Taman apologists may now flame away.
