This is the kind of boneheaded management you prefer to see in your opponent.

Individual accolade should never take precedent over team benefit. But in this case it did.

This is of course a big loss to overcome. Yikes.

Well I'm still hoping. We need Howard to be Howard today and play the full minutes. Not sure if he's ready for that. But what silliness to play Sherrit a whole game when he's been struggling and limping and favoring a knee.

I said this as well, at the time. Guys should have been rested instead of the individual stuff. And you could tell they were all over it, as the Stampeder RB went 10 yards into field goal range before Sherritt could finally bring him down with his record breaking tackle. And they all went crazy with glee, as Calgary trotted out the field goal team and promptly kicked the winner. Something is wrong there.

Congrats to Sherritt on the record. Now you can sit and rest your injured parts while the rest of the team soldiers on, handicapped by your absence in the biggest game of the year.
