I guess bad Tino decided to show up tonight. not a first down until half way through the first quarter. I knew things were not looking good when they gambled on 3rd and less then a yard and they don't even get close to making it. I think some really hard decisions are going to have to made about our quarterback situation. The Eskimo defense had a field day in the backfield. Once again Tino looked totally lost and his backup looked no better. How many passes into double coverage and then to hang Taj out on a suicide pass when there was nothing to gain is not excusable. Its no secret that our offense is a joke. No passing game all year to speak of and now not even a run game. We get 2-3 yards on first downs the other teams are getting 8 -15.
Our defense is really looking very porous is the last couple of games. we cant stop the pass and now we can't stop the run. That is not going to cut it. White made our defense look brutal and embarrassed the whole defense numerous times. Two defenders against Stamps and he out fights both for a jump ball. Are you kidding me? I have seen the same thing play out before where our db's get out fought for a ball but when there is two in the same spot they should have a rule the inside guy takes the man and the outside guy go for the ball. both defenders going for the ball and still allowing the catch just should not happen.
Honestly I was feeling a bit better after the determination to fight back against Ottawa but tonight was a major step backwards in almost every aspect of the game. The only thing that actually looked good was our cover teams which was good to see but that isn't the only thing that will win games.
