This is about as correct as it gets, a perfect microcosm of Reed's tenure here. Third season as head coach and seventeen games into the season the players have no clue what the hell he wants them to do. As terrible as he is as a coach, he is an even worse communicator. A lot of people initially thought he was a stand up guy for taking the heat for the players over that "13th man" thing in the Grey Cup game but after watching him here for 3 years and seeing exactly how confused and flustered he gets in pressure situations I'm sure he was directly responsible. Either way, he certainly isn't head coach material.
If he is back next season the Eskimos don't deserve to sell a single ticket.
