I can't even begin to explain how frustrated I am right now... :roll:
Offence: We looked a little better on offence tonight. I liked some of the aggressiveness. Going for it on 3rd down when we were at the goal line was a smart decision. However, trying a pass play when it was 2nd and inches was dumb. It was a wreckless gamble. Either Ricky Ray or Whitlock should've rushed for the first down. I'm confident either one of them would've gotten it. Instead, they passed, and Ray was picked off. We sort of fell apart in the second half. Special teams helped us out a bunch.
Defence: Would anyone honestly disagree with me if I said they cost us the game? I sure as hell hope not. The D-Line played a little better, getting two sacks, but they still didn't get much pressure on Burris. He was pretty much allowed to hang around in the pocket and pick us off. This led to what cost us the game... long pass after long ******* pass. Burris picked us apart. This defence is disgusting. I don't even care about the three picks (and let's be honest, Kelly Malveaux only got his pick because he was in the right place at the right time, that's it!). Calgary's game-winning drive was a perfect example of how incompetent this defence is. Picked apart...
I don't know who to blame more... Daley for calling an incompetent defence, or Richie Hall for letting him do whatever, even though he MUST know our defence is a joke. Something needs to happen... Starting with Malveaux's release. After that, either Daley gets a harsh talking to, or he gets his walking papers. I don't care which. I'm sick of having the league's worst defence. We've been a joke on defence for years. Enough is enough already. WAKE THE **** UP HALL!!!
Special Teams: Some good returns from Tristan Jackson tonight. Shame he might be injured, but Rector gave us a couple decent returns. Noel Prefontaine punted the ball better... though there was one punt in the fourth that was pretty pathetic. If it hadn't bounced by the returner, the Stamps probably would've started at their own 40 or 50. Great fumble recovery for a TD by Ellis.
