I'm not sure I understand this point. I would say Calgary owned that play if we tried to punt it. Calgary already demonstrated what was going to happen if they decided to bring the stunt block out. Esks had no answer for it. It would be easy 6 and then people are questioning that.

People should remember this was still the first half. Calgary had already executed a perfect stunt block scheme that entirely undressed the Esks coverage. Being that its the same half Calgary would just do it again.

Blame the special teams coaching. It was the one side of the ball that wasn't prepared to play tonight and cost us all game and had us coming from behind all game.

I'll say this too. Miles was flat out pathetic in this game and should be seeing his walking papers by tomorrow. Single handedly cost us the game. Anybody explain how you let that ball drop without even touching it to give Calgary the early TD? Not even in the sun. Just plain tentative and scared to touch the ball. Tbh I wouldn't have faith in that guy playing another down for this club. He was beyond useless allnight on returns anyway.
