This game was tied in the 4th quarter. And we're going to lose by 3 TD's. To a team missing its three best players. This is the definition of humiliating. I wish Joseph and Crandell had missed the plane. Just when this team actually shows a pulse they come out with this kind of effort. Total no-show against a team ripe for the picking.

Oh there's Messam with 40 yards on two touches. Good thing we benched him for most of the game. Still two minutes left...can Nicholls achieve more completions than Joseph? ....No, he'll just fumble it instead.

Yeah, don't worry though, Joseph threw the ball really hard on every pass.

You know what, Joseph played good last game, utter crap this game.

I would strongly suggest starting nichols this game.

Hah, I've never heard such overblown praise for a QBing performance in my life. Suitor and Cuthbert are completely out to lunch; this Reilly kid didn't do anything special tonight. BC's defense dominated and Joseph was beyond bad after playing over his head for two weeks.

And yet he's still a better option than anything we have currently.

But I thought we needed to tray Ray to create room for a QB of the future who would be more exciting and dynamic?!

The problems with this team start the very top... cut out the cancer and see what happens to the rest of it.

So lets review here:

Eskimos record when handing off 16 or more times: 6-0

Eskimos record when handing off 15 or fewer times: 1-9

Is it really this simple? Yes, it is. Crandell is just that stupid.

Ray fumbled the ball on his own 15yd line with lots of time to get the winning pts on his final drive. But instead fails to get it done against the worst club in the league.

We were playing the Leos D, a formidable group averaging 18pts against this year, and we were playing them in their barn.

Joseph was flat out useless in this one but really Ray would've had a lot of trouble too and the last time Ray played the Leos in regular season we lost 36-1.

You mean when our top 4 receivers were injured (an excuse you seem to have no issue using for Joseph)?

Also interesting you were cherry pick that game opposed to a playoff game.

So I'll ask this. At what point was it immediately evident that Joseph was looking uncomfortable tonight. I would say before the kickoff when they panned in on him this wasn't going to be a confident game. He was looking worried before the game started.

I would imagine Joseph for some reason psyched himself out in this one. Trying to do much forcing the ball down the field instead of establishing a ground game. We had to grind it out against the Leos and didn't. We even had a recipe for beating BC earlier in the season.

This was back to stupid schemes and playcalling, virtually no stunts, no play action, no fakes. BC could tell all night exactly what we were going to do.

Disappointing game from Marcus Henry, Carter and Coehoorn were invisible, Stamps wasn't getting open much.

Koch with the one bright spot and has hands but really the guy didn't get open much on the night and even on that play he wasn't open.

Joseph was horrible but there wasn't a lot of targets tonight. BC was cheating for the pressure, covering man on man, and we had nothing going downfield.

Well I was at the game and completely disgusted. Worst QB performance at Commonwealth I've ever experienced from an esks QB in my life. Been to a lot of games. I'll never forget it. Ray was good as gone here soon as that game happened and I said as much.

Ray didn't get it done in the playoff game against the Leos either. What should I credit him for? Doing jack**** since 2005 and even Jason Maas had to save his sorry ass that year.

lol that the Ray and the Argos lost again tonight. Against a deplorable D and a bomber club that seldom brings it on the road.

Ray at this stage of his career just can't get it done. Nothing new here.

The playoff game where Ray also looked like crap? That 36-1 game Replacement speaks of wasn't the last time Ray played the Lions, he played them twice in October last year, losing both as well to blow 1st place.

But I've said it before, it doesn't matter who's in at QB. The stats I posted above are plain as day. When we run 16 times, we win the game without exception. When we don't, we lose 90% of the time. Any person in this forum is capable of winning as the OC with this knowledge. Crandell is probably aware as well, but would rather lose than allow a non-QB to be the reason for the win.
