When u only eush 3 linemen or sometimes 4 and there is NO pressure on their QB, sguess what? He has a whole lot of time to find a receiver! What the heck is our D coordinator thinking? Pressure is what makes QBs make mistakes. Pretty simple! Take note!
The Tiger Cats have been playing a man short all season. As a season ticket holder I feel unrewarded for my efforts to support this team. No adjustments … nothing to even show the fans that they the team wanted to win. Time to move on nothing to see here because nothing appears to change except the words.
They essentially fired Austin, resigned all of their free agents. Moved on from Collaros and found their future QB, brought in Breaux and now Sinkfield… And you’re saying they didn’t do anything to try and win?
It’s one thing to say they were outcoached/outmatched etc. But to suggest they didn’t even try?
Just home, into something warm and dry drinking something warming and relaxing.
I thought the defence was great against the run, but it just opened them up to the short dinker passes to Sinopoli and Ellingson. The advantage of tall, strong receivers. Give them 5 yards a pass and they will take it. Two fives makes a ten, and draws in the DBs for the long ball.
Another good game by Ottawa, full measure for the win. Well prepared, well executed, well deserved. Now we have a tune-up date with Montreal, a home game opportunity against BC, and I hope one more shot at beating these guys.
But got to say, that was one cold, wet night to suffer through a loss.
Daly has no business starting as he is way toi slow as seen on the long pass to Spencer. Something is wrong with the defence if Spencer is one on one with Daly for a long pass. WIth no pass rush , Harris throws for a td 9 out of 10 times in that situation. Leonard is also a liability game in game out. I blame our coachi g staff for the lack of pass rush all year and they rarely blitzed tonight which made things so much easier for Harris. If they hope to have any chance for a grey cup they need to get Daly out and Stephen in and Leonard and Johnson or freddie williams in
. If we are are going with two starting national receivers then I’d start two import DE’S in Howsare and Tracy and blitz a linebacker a bit more as they tend to always show blitz then backoff not fooling anyone.Ottawa’s offensive co-ordinator continues to outsmart Glanville. That 3rd and one pass for a td to Ellingson was unacceptable. Also, Daly should never be one on one with anyone especially not spencer
Maybe it is partially Glanville’s fault for not working hard enough to keep Daly from going one on one with a speedster like Spencer. You have to admit Daly is painfully slow though. I never seemed to see Hitch going one ob one with speedy receivers that might have been due to the defensive co-ordinator . I do know Hitch was great at helping a db in coverage and making big hits in the middle on passes and runs.
I know if we play Ottawa again in the playoffs they will continue to successfully pick in Daly and Leonard and stay away from Breaux and take advantage if our lack of pass rush. If wr dont make personnel changes in these areas then Harris will continue to pick us apart and beat us as our offence can’t be counted on with Banks and Saunders out .
Front 7 did well against run but are virtually useless at pass rushing. They couldn't flush a pheasant out of a bush, nevermind a QB like Harris out of his pocket. The DBs can only cover for so long if the QB has five steamboats.
