They were doing so good in the first 45 minutes of the game and just completely fell apart in the last quarter, not to mention that Abou-Mechrek has no idea that the play starts when the Quarterback says so, not when he feels like moving. Penalties completely killed them.
NO GLENN KILLED THEM .... GLENN SUCKS and NOW IT IS PROVEN THAT HE CANNOT FINISH GAMES AND IS NOTHING MORE THAN A BACK UP QB, TIME FOR HIM TO BE RELEGATED TO 2ND OR 3RD STRING.
If it wasn't for the holding penalty on the one TD the game could have went a whole other way as well.
exactly..and the ref threw the flag after stegall had the ball...GAY
If i were Doug Berry, there wud be hell going on in that dressing room. Bombers could have easily won, but we have to take stupid penalties to give it to the alouettes.
Once the bombers lost the lead and gave up the run. The Als teed up that fat Oline and had a field day. Once they gave up the run. Roberts becomes a liability. Thats when a guy like Childs will become very useful.
I think KG did well. Berry was also letting him call his own plays at some point in the game, that will take a while to perfect. John Ryan is also sorely missed.
Glenn made the biggest mistake throwing on the second interception instead of running it, he had some room, and could have made a big play.
You know that Glen outplayed Calvillo right? Not a bad start. Cox is a hell of a DB. Kid is big time fast. Kid was one of the best 100m sprinter in the US, He can return kicks as well as anyone in the league. By the third or fourth game of the season. NO ONE is going to throw anywhere near that kid...
I think the Bombers did better then I think they would. Couple weak spots but overall much better then last year at this time.
Oh no question there that they improved vastly, but just the whole falling apart in the 4th thing.......
Glen's mistake of Berry's (we aren't sure who) Gave up running the ball allowed the Als to blitz on every play. It was painful to watch. Berry looked like a nervous wreck late in the game. He lost his bearings IMO.
If your going to dress a back like Roberts you better use him for 60 minutes cause he sure ain't going to pick up his man...
Second game adjustments.
1- HAVE to replace Abou-Mechreck
2- Get someone to return kicks.
3- Use a two back set as long as possible
4- 100.00/fine in a party jar...for every penalty
5-Send the entire Oline to line dancing classses.
6-No throwing anywhere near Chip Cox
I agree 100% that Abou-Mechreck has to go, or everytime he gets a procedure penalty everyone on the team gets to kick him in the butt after the game.
i disagree 100% about abou-mechrek becauuse he is an all star o lineman...u gotta understand that he got moved to right tackle for yesterdays game just a few days ago, and it aint even is normal spot..so u no that hell go back to where hes more comfortable
Don’t panic. It’s only game one in a season that has a very short training camp and pre-season.
It’s a huge learning experience for KG. It’ll only make him a better QB. He’ll only get better and he looks very good. Same goes for Berry and the O. They have to learn how to handle the blitz at the end of the game. That inability to handle the blitz was not KG’s fault. The coaches couldn’t come up with a way to handle it, but it was desperate times at that point.
Take a step back , and I think it was a somewhat impressive performance considering it was in Montreal, They even had the fns booing.
Bombers look good.
Wow, guys, I'm an Alouettes fan, and even I'm shocked by how harsh y'all are. Your team played a good game for the most part. Glenn is going to improve in time and I don't think you can just can him after one loss. Your D was very tough until the fourth quarter when penalties killed 'em. I must say that last night's game was much more competitive than I thought it would be, and that's a credit to Doug Berry. Give him time and he will build you a winner in Winnipeg.
...the Bombers are already a winner....compared to last yrs. fiasco..the ALS. were on the ropes....we will learn to deliver the knock-out ...this team as a unit is very new compared to the Als....and like i said all along ....when we gel...look-out
Guess you don't read the stats, Glenn did not outplay Calvillo!! 2 INTS against 1 INT and Calvillo had a better completion pct... why you defending Glenn i don't know? Not to mention Glenn blew the game in the 4th quarter and Calvillo came on and won the game for the Als. Damn am i tired of people defending this bum "Glenn".
Mate, time is something that the Bombers or Glenn don't have as a luxury.
I am not defending Glenn. I just think that for a guy's first game with a new coach and scheme he did all right. Calvillo didn't win that game. Chip Cox did, but that's just my opinion.
OMG, WYNN JUST SCORED A TD, HIS FRIST REGULAR SEASON START WITH TO!!!
WHY ON EARTH DID WE CUT HIM???
and why did we let Stokes go? two of our best players are showing their stuff in TO now. :thdn: shaking his head
