That's a common injury on Tillman led teams. It was the same sham in Saskatchewan with everyone being "injured."

There certainly have been real injuries, but there's also been a whole slew of guys who have been put on the IR while being told to work on their limps in front of media.

Yup, of course, when you're trying to deflect away from the RR trade..

Yeah. Tons of potential, but he's at least a year away from being a legitimate starter.

Truly I didn't deserve that from Nichols as I've been on his case but man that was something.

I don't know if its been nerves before but I've never seen him throwing the ball with that kind of authority.

Nice relief pitching Nichols. That was stupendous bullpen performance, almost a magical one for the ages type ending.

Koch was held up in the endzone. That call could've happened on the 2 pt convert.

Man, lets hope these two clubs are playing in Mcgill again 3 weeks from now.

As for Joseph, hurt, multiple injuries as I stated and shouldn't have been playing.

At least we have some hope going forward.

But yeah, I think the org HAS to start Nichols next week. Its the right thing to do afer this and Joseph is really banged up and looking like he would be on the injured list if these games weren't so critical.
And that is why Nichols should have been starting since LD.

We simply didn't know how good he is. Had not seen nearly enough snaps.

Instead we've had Kerry Joseph lead us to a whopping 2-7 record over that time.

That said, as much as Kavis is getting **** on here (and he's made a ton of mistakes), how many coaches would look good in must win games after their GM gives away his #1 QB for nothing and leaves him no suitable replacements?

Nichols looked good, but it's worth mentioning that practice reps have assuredly helped him out a ton along the way as well.

Reed (and Crandell) were given a spoon to head into a knife fight.
