Well, I've had almost a day to calm down after we gave that win to the Argos! there are some striking similarities to what we experienced last year with that game! I was there...that game we should have won by 10 points!
a lot of people have commented in other threads about some of the things that really pissed me off but 1 stands out that i can't find....
What in the heck were they thinking calling a shovel-pass in the late 2ndQ with 17 sec. on the clock and deep in our own end. Oh sure it had worked earlier...but we were down by a few points and needed to take some momentum into the lockerroom. they gained a few yards...big deal...they should have gone long and to the sidelines to stop the clock and give our receivers a chance. AND...this is the BIG ONE!!!! WHY...WITH 8 SEC. ON THE CLOCK, YOU TAKE A KNEE????? Nothing like giving up!!!!! Where did we see that before...and the same results at the end of the game????
Penalties...dicipline(or lack of it)...the blow-up on the sideline...SHOWBOATING...missed field goals...missed tackles...And the next biggest faux-pax...The first interception thrown ....that was the game-breaker there...THAT WAS IT! 2 steps to the sidelines and everybody is good...BUT NO....I'll throw an interception....Sorry people...that was a rookie mistake AND "KEVIN EAKIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE BALL" on the next series! Maas didn't deserve it. Go ahead...jump on me for saying it...but I said I would give credit where credit was due...AND our O-Line was pretty darn good...but our QB did not do a good job and as such did not deserve to finish the game!
I don't want to see SAME OLD...been there done that..didn't work in the past...won't work NOW! The coaches have some decisions to make...MAKE THEM! This year you have the weapons....USE THEM PROPERLY...don't shoot yourself in the foot! MY GAWD...taking a knee with 8 sec.s on the clock!!!! :roll:
Oh...one other thing...the TO FANS were much better behaved this year at Rogers Centre and I quite enjoyed the pre-game tailgate and the friendly rivalry and kidding around...that's what the game is about...having fun! :thup: :thup:
