Well the Cats are wrong with the Cats. Nobody wants to step up and take responsibility. Marshall is being consistently outcoached in the CFL. Negative or not, it's the way I see it. He's in way over his head.
The coaches are the guiltiest bunch in my opinion. They just lay it at the feet of the players. Coach Marshall said today that it's the players fault. I respectfully disagree. The buck must stop somewhere and it must stop with first line of defence - the coaching staff. How we can be last in the league in so many offensive categories, suggests alittle more is wrong than Marshall's assessment. You can look at the special teams and their abysmal performance. How can it not be the result of poor coaching? There are so many missed tackles on the not so special teams, and contain men still getting beat to the outside for huge gains against them. It's highschool stuff really and the Ticats look like a sloppy highschool team.
On the offence we have an offensive coordinator that has no business in football. Baressi's lack of imagination has made us the most predictable team. Marshall disputes this, and challenges any fans who think so, to foretell the play to him.
The half time adjustments alone, Marshall says we have to start making adjustments. Its game 7 for crying out loud. If you knew how to do it, it would have been done by now. The coaches quite simply cannot do it and I defy them to prove otherwise against BC. They wont make adjustments at half time. I just don't believe they are capable of it.
Oh well, I guess we'll have to snore through Bob Young's "five-year plan". Well Bobby, five'll getcha ten and ten'll gettcha twenty. If we don't overhaul this huge ugly mistake on Balsam Ave immediately, we're going to be losers for longer than you have imagined in your wildest dreams.
