And Reed/Tillman still refuse to put Matt Nichols in.

6 straight absolutely putrid quarters by the 39 year old wonder.

all I know is this could be the worst eskimo team I have ever watched. It ranks with the worst of the danny mac teams. the coaching is no better, either.

what tips the balance is how tillman screwed up so badly with the QB's and getting rid of ray, and the waste of a #1 draft pick on a player the esks didn't even use.

this game sums up the quality of the esks management, players, game plan and coaching.

basically a big steaming pile of turds.

I've avoided coming here, but couldn't resist one last venting of how horrible the esks are.
they've wasted my time and money. I don't know how anyone can ever wonder on the lack of fan interest and support from watching these clowns over that last 7 or 8 years, to the crap we see today. it's a miracle they can get 30,000 a game.

I'm turning the game off if Nichols doesn't start the 2nd half. I'm sick of the excuses with regards to Joseph. The rest of the team certainly hasn't been good but he is SO slow on his reads and that is one of the reason why he gets forced out of the pocket so much.

Yeah my thoughts exactly. Except Messam is averaging 1 yd/carry and Boyd hasn't come off the sideline. Is he dressed?

Anyone else find it mindblowing that players continue to go offside on goal line stands? All you have to do is put your hand on the line, but still there is always an idiot that decide to get 4 inches past and get penalized.
Yeah, I noted that too. Brutal. Even if we had stood there on the 3rd down the Als were going to get a fresh set of downs. But it was one of the replacements which is a large part of the story.
As per the telecast The Eskimos this year have had to rotate 84 different players into the lineup due to injuries. ftr this is two complete rosters. We're largely watching roster B on D. Which is tough in a game like this.

Messam is plain ****ing awful. From his first touch of the game I could see he wasn't into it. What a ****ing jackass. On two plays he's falling down before he's even touched. 4 ****ing runs for 4yds.

Joseph, yeah, horrible, everything pretty bad. D at least with a valiant attempt at keeping this a football game.

In fairness its overall ineptitude. The entire offensive scheme is ****ed again. Messam sleep walking out there. Zero intensity from anybody. Oline getting their ***** handed to them on every play. That is when they're not self destructing taking several penalties in a row. The lack of discipline on this club is astonishing.

So Joseph gets to decide if he's back next season? Tillman's love for him defies reason. Another "tough day". If Nichols isn't in to start the 3rd I am doing something else.

Yeah, Boyd is dressed.

I'm not sure why our coaches are so reluctant to use him. It's not like our running game could be worse.

Messam keeps mentioning he's not 100% to the TSN types, yet the Eskimos keep putting him in there. Marcus Henry looks to be keeping his 2-3 drops a game streak intact.

He apparently has contagious bubonic leprosy typhus plague...

I dunno. The coaching decisions on this club seem designed to make me drink.

Someone take a look at Messam out there. Sunday picnic waving to the crowd and figuring out what french football bunny he wants to score.

What a ****ing joke this player is. At least act like you're playing.

Just watch though he'll wake up by the 4th quarter and get 40yds on a few plays.

Boyd passes Messam's total yards in the first half with his first carry

That's Reed's decision. Tillman's been away.

I really hope Nichols plays this half.

According to the analysts, Messam is playing hurt. If that is truly the case, and we've just brought back Boyd and refuse to play him with Messam injured, I want Reed fired at the end of the year. Just a comedy of errors by this coaching staff.

Keep on trotting him out there. Eventually he may do something other than continue to crap the bed.

Jyles has clipboard cramps and braincramps and Nichols can't find his arm.

He's hurt because the Esks don't give him the ball 20 times a game just because.

Buono was dead right about this guy.

No, don't you get it? It will again be everyone else's fault. Our QB's have been blameless according to Eskies management.

Looks to be the same unimaginative Marcus Crandell calling the plays.
