Re: Official 2012 CFL Thread

I was listening to it partly but turned it off when it was 27-0.

WPG fans must be choked,no hockey team and a terrible football team.

Going to be a long winter.

After 5 consecutive CFL Offensive Player of the Week awards given to Ti-Cat opponents, I guess the defense decided they needed to rough up somebody. Easiest team to rough up would the Eskimos. Maybe that is why there were 51 unanswered points scored by the Ti-Cats.

Hard hitting seemed to be the theme in game 2 as well. Both quarterbacks were constantly being pressured. Difference though was that Lulay was still able to move the ball relatively easily. Even so, the Argos had a chance to win it and the end but as usual could not finish off a drive with a major.

That was closer than it should have been...........bloody refs always need to try and ruin the game.

There have been some major blowouts this year instead of the usually close games.

That was definitely closer than it needed to be. BC (uncharacteristically) had a few bad turnovers. Otherwise the gap would of been bigger.

That last touchdown pass that Ricky Ray tossed was pretty sweet though.

Als score 2 touchdowns in their 1st 2 possessions but did almost nothing on offense after that. From then on, the Rider's defensive line for the most part shutdown the Als.

Even with all those penalties and the inexperience of Willy, the Riders still could have made a comeback. Als barely converted (by an inch or so) on a 3rd and 1 which then sealed the outcome of the game.

Heard from the Roughriders bench to the Roughriders defence towards the end of the Als' second TD drive: "Be the ball".

Really? That's the precious advice the defence coaches have for their players? Can you get any more cliché? You may want to save a bit on salary and replace all of Saskatchewan's coaches with DVDs of Any Given Sunday, The Replacements, Remember the Titans, The Express, The Longest Yard and Leatherheads. Could hardly be any worse...

Bombers finally got scored an offensive touchdown after being shut out for about a month. They even acted like they won something big as they gave Burke the Gatorade shower. Bombers are now just one game behind the Ti-Cats in the standings which means they can at least portray themselves as fighting for a playoff spot. Will it happen? Probably not unless they can find a way to win at least one game on the road this year.

Eskimos played almost perfectly on offense in the 1st half. Second half, the Lions defense kicked their ass. That meant the Lions offense was on the field for most of the second half and eventually wore down the Eskimo defense.

Oddity of the game was after a fumble recovery, both coaches challenged the play. Benevides lost his no fumble contention. Then Reed won his claim that his player who recovered the fumble was not down by contact until after he ran 25 yards.

While surfing various NCAA football games, I came upon a sideline interview with J. C. Watts. Apparently, his son plays for Tulsa. Interviewer did a poor job in my opinion. She only asked him about Oklahoma, his son, and politics. Uh, who cares about that? She did not even mention his time as QB with Ottawa!!!

Ya not a bad game....McCallum is missing a few too many kicks this year though.

The Lions came from behind in the fourth quarter to defeat Edmonton 19-18.

Paul McCallum kicked a 46-yard-field goal to win the game late, after missing his previous two attempts in the second half.

Geroy Simon caught his one hundredth career TD pass

In game 1, the Als get another gift. Last week Durant was injured in the previous game, so he did not play at all against the Als. Today Ray gets rolled on by his own center. Jarious Jackson comes in and completes his first passes of the year. Although the Al's defense made him look decent at times, Jackson could not get the Argos anywhere near the end zone.

@rr.com

Finally got to watch game 2. Got to give credit to Chamblin for motivating his defense into stopping Cornish. It could have backfired on him, but it did not. Of course there is a better chance of success with the Riders playing at home and with Durant back in the lineup.

In game 1, the Als found out that they cannot luck out every week. Even though amost every week the offensive player of the week goes to a Ti-Cat opponent, it was the Als defense that was worse tonight. Ti-Cats moved the ball at will in the 1st half. They did not even have to punt and scored enough points there to put the game out of reach.

Instead, it was the Stamps in game 2 who were the fortunate ones playing an Eskimo team with line injuries and a quarterback making his first start. At least the Eskimo's defense stopped the Stamps a few times. However as in game 1, the winning team scored all the needed points in the 1st half.

It is just that Ticats have better athletes than the Als.

Anyway in game 1, the Toronto Grey Cup conspiracy theories can start up again. Without Ray, the Argos got every break in the 1st quarter and took a big lead early. Okay, it was only against the Bombers whose quarterback situation is in question yet again because Pierce got knocked out. This would be the 3rd game this weekend where one team scored enough in the 1st half to decide the outcome.

With 3 games already decided before the 2nd half began, it looked like that would happen again in the final game. Lulay is usually not bothered by pressure. However today he was as there were numerous big hits in the game by both sides. Lions defense in the 2nd half did shutdown the Riders so their offense could get back into the game. Lions even had a chance at the end with a recovered onside kick, but was never close to the endzone on their final drive.

Lions didn't deserve to even be that close.

I've no idea what Lulay was thinking but all he did the whole game was try the long bomb?

With a minute left in the game he tries 3 long passes instead of 10 yarders,and they probably would have scored...........terrible game calling either by him or Chapdelaine.

I know Lulay can scramble and is willing to hold the ball the extra second to better time his passes to the receivers. But at some point you have to notice how often the guy gets hit and wonder if adjustments need to be made in protection or play-calling. I would think the Lions are concerned about keeping him healthy.

I've never been a fan of keeping a QB playing no matter how poor a
game he is having.

You want to see "an arm" take a look at the Lion's backup QB,
Reilly!!! The guy throws 60 passes damn near a flat trajectory!

@rr.com

To me, Lulay was fine. It was just that the Riders' defense at times can shutdown offenses. They got to Lulay maybe a step or so sooner than other teams. So the Lions just had trouble doing much on offense until the 4th quarter. In addition, Simon and Bruce were knocked out so they had fewer receiver options.

Ti-Cats self destruct once again. Burris himself had 4 turnovers. Whole team had trouble handling the ball. Defense also gave up 300 yards passing + a win to Joseph who previously lost his last 9 starts. Eskimos had lost their last 5. Early candidate for player of the week is Stamps who had 200 yards receiving.

Lions were able to get net yardage on almost play, while their defense stopped for Stamps offense for most of the game. Yet, the Stamps still had an outside chance at the end.

Except for the close score the Lions dominated the game. Harris outran Calgary's , Jon Cornish, and Lulay outplayed Calgary quarterback Kevin Glenn. B.C.'s defence was outstanding, as total yardage after three quarters was 355-153 for the Lions.
It looks like this year's Grey Cup will be a yawner. If the Lion's can get out of the West there is no Eastern Team to be reckoned with. There is no parity in the CFL.

Didn't I just say a couple a days ago that the Ti-Cats self destucted? Well in game 1 on Thanksgiving day, the Als matched that. Lots of turnovers with the team having trouble holding on to the ball. Bad defense giving up 300 yards to Elliott and losing to a team who did not have a road win this year before today. No need to single out an individual for offensive player of the week as the Bombers as a team probably put up over 400 yards.

The conspiracy theorist in me feels like the Als are well dialed into the supposed plan to have the Argos appear in the 100th Grey Cup game.

What a fucking farce that game was.

Okay, I just watched game 2 . Argos did not look so good. But then again, the teams they have to beat to get to the Grey Cup are not playing that well either.

Anyway, this game was pretty much over after the first possession. Their weak offense (especially with Jackson) was simply no match against the Riders defense. Plus there was a mismatch on special teams as the Argos were forced to use a backup punter and with the Riders reducing Owens to being almost a non-factor. Argo's defense did what it could but it seemed like they were never off the field for more than a minute.

Who cares about the number of flags if there are infractions?

The BC game had close to 15 flags in a row for phantom calls by the blind refs..............they seem to think people pay to watch them.

They're the worse refs of any league I've seen.
