Why didn’t he play more?
“Simple,” Reed said, without hesitation. “Because we’re getting paid to win football games now.”
As for rotating tailbacks Hugh Charles and Cory Boyd on Sunday, not staying with the hot hand, which was Charles, at least early in that game, Reed said: “We went with what we felt was best for the football team.”
The Eskimos coaches developed a plan based on film work and other due diligence and stuck to their plan, in other words."
"Paid to win football games now? Kavis, you went 2-9 in your last 11 games. If that's how you feel, you should return most of your paychecks.
More proof that the man has no in game sense. He studied film, made his decision, and stayed there despite what was happening in the game, refusing to adapt. And people want him back as a HC why??
Honestly he can feel that way and say what he wants the fact remains the Argos were a team we could've beat. This wasn't a game that we were going in a huge underdog. If Kavis thought he gave his best efforts then whoever becomes his boss next year really needs to evaluate if those were the best results possible given the personnel we had.
