Anyone else think we tried our best to throw that game?

    Okay, I'm not saying that we did or did not try to throw it, but there were a few pretty obvious plays where I don't think we were.....umm...."trying our hardest to win".

    The 20 yard kickoff?
    The West fumble at the end of the 4th quarter?
    The missed Peredes field goal from 38 (or whatever it was) where he's been 99% this year.....

    These are just what I remember off-hand. There were several other....interesting.....plays throughout the game.

    and knowing that Paredes was going to shank it Reed called a timeout in the nick of time to ensure that calgary's plot would fail. :p

    No, I think you are seeing an effect of sitting key players, and giving Tate some reps when he perhaps is not ready for it. The West fumble was overruled, the Parades miss was taken away by the timeout.

    Of course, on a game that doesn't matter, anything can happen. Personally, I think that Edmonton should want to go east. They beat toronto both times they went down there. Calgary has tough games against Sask. Edmonton got beat everytime they played calgary. I think they stand a better chance at grey cup glory by going east.

    The 20 yard kickoff was weird, I will give you that. Trying out short kick strategies? but no stamps were even close. Explain

    Ok, and further to the short kick strategy, we saw BC execute a perfect short kick strategy against calgary last week. So this one just seems like a mistake that was glossed over by the commentators. May be I am reading too much into it....

    I think they hoped to catch the Esks napping after stunning them with the long score.

    Almost caught themselves napping, however, with a poorly executed play...:p

    OK, I can buy that. It was hard to follow, as I think it surprised the TSN play by play guys, and they didn't seem to make much of it, so it was hard to analyze.

    After going up 17 points they went into cruise control. Hopefully complacency has not set in.

    I think it surprised almost all of us, glaqua, which I think was the point.

    Sadly, it didn't apparently surprise the intended victims on the play...or at least not enough of them...;)

    You know what was weird? Listening to Rod Black go on & on about how Nichols should start the Eastern Final. I'm thinking the man is so dumb he wouldn't know a tree from a cactus.

    Okay, another play I remembered from last night.

    When Glenn fumbled that ball in the 4th quarter, he just pretty much stood there and looked at it roll around. It was like he didn't even want it back, and it was right there at his feet.

    I'd start Nichols as well.

    Why not? Do you really think that Joseph is a much better option?

    Sure, he has "experience" - experience at starting games that he eventually LOST. He's really good at that, so I guess if that's what you're looking for, you could go that way.

    Nichols proved that he can play last night. He engineered that comeback last night, which as a non-Eskimos fan, I thought was pretty decent.

    I say why not?

    Funny did you not just say the Stamps laid down for the Eskies to win and yet now you feel Nichols was creating a come back? Hmmm! You should be standing next to Black!
