At the very least give them the two points. That play was downright idiotic at a critical time for the Eskimos. Hufnagel took Jones behind the shed in this game and it was painful to watch.
I don't really care if Calgary blocked a punt earlier in the game. There's nothing that says it would've happened again. And it's sure a hell of a lot more likely that the ball gets punted properly than running the play they did.
Besides, as a coach, isn't it Jones' job to make adjustments as necessary?
What adjustment? Obviously the Esks didn't have one as its still the first half and they had no confidence punting that ball away from the endzone.
This wasn't a standard block with one guy coming free. This was 4 guys clear and 7that got by the line. Which is obviously going to elicit major concern over several blown blocks on that play. Not one mistake in otherwords to weed out but several.
What do you think the chances are that Calgary blocks it in the endzone if they bring the stunt block again. I'd say next to automatic and especially with Shaw back there.
