Okay, I like those responses. But for sake of argument the seed that was planted let's call it: (post Nov07 gc loss). I would say paints a pretty large measuring point for this team. You know how it goes: what really measures a team? I argue, through changes (Armstead, Serna, Moreno, Smith, Reid) are the crucial elements. These guys are helping a fairly egotistical-arrogant-childish brand of football, completely overcome (again for the sake of argument) Nov07.
Think about it.
It's not because of Bauer, or Taman, or Berry. These players are so critical to the success of a team that can easily be 2-10 (1=win/Glenn 1=win/Widdie) instead of 4-8 = much more promising.
Without these guys stated above, I'd say, a team with Glenn returning to form due to a running game resulted in calling his own plays much more effectively. Terrance Edwards was almost non-existent for the first 8 games of the season, and Armstrong dropping catchable balls. Now it's entirely the opposite.
Also, part of this all boils down to the main argument which becomes how negligent the entire team's philosophy (Doug Berry - especially Doug Berry included) lost sight of over-coming that gc loss in 07. When Sask. came in here and we lost to Bishop - of all qb's - that our defense shut down in Toronto's 07' east.final?? I couldn't believe how far we had to go, that this team couldn't lay a beat down on Sask. for stealing what was ours. I was dumbfounded by the players lack of effort/desire was embarassing.
Then Roberts is traded.
Sask. beats us at home, with Glenn's lousy 4th qrt leadership. 2-out's was what sealed our fate that Sunday @ Canada Inns.
Now here we are, with a team that has begun to believe in playing football again, but it has to be for the right reason. That reason I suggest, is because the players forgot to feel what losing that gc in 07' was about.
If my theory proves correct, this team can go into Mtl come Nov., and clean up at Molson Stadium.
