I don't know if Nichols is a top 10 QB in this league.

However I do know he is the best QB on this roster.

Matt ****ing Nichols.

Turning it up in the last 5 minutes. Again.

Oh, and JC Sherritt with 5 tackles. Now 6 short of breaking the record.

Solid half from what I seem anyway Nichols looks good and edm down by 3

Coach better be watching this and thinking long and hard about he should start next week it's a easy choice for most yet coach seems to like old man Joseph

I'm not sure how strong this Calgary D is that they're fielding, but in no universe is Kerry ****ing Joseph a better option than this kid.

Matt Nichols isn't perfect, nor has he shown enough to be anointed anything like a savior or anything. But what he is, is the best QB on this roster. Kerry ****ing Joseph would've kept us at 3 points. That much I'm sure of.

Let him play the whole game and get reps. No point playing Jyles. Let him practice bringing out water.

O-line is too inconsistent in blocking. I do like they are trying to run, but if they can call running plays at better times, than it may be more useful in my opinion.

D looks decent. Howard back makes a lot of difference. TL has been a terrific DT this whole season and it shows. An anchor on our D-line. Sherritt has been good. DB's need to tighten up a little but overall can't complain. If we took better angles on sacks, I think we would've had 2-3 more.

Overall can't complain. Not outstanding, but not terrible. All I know is with Joseph we would've been stuck at 3 points and Calgary is probably at 27-34 points. There is no ****ing way Joseph offers anything more than Nichols.

Probably time for Steven Jyles, the road trip to Toronto won't make itself.

I want long-term success.

Get Nichols feet wet, and get ready to get **** kicked @ Calgary next week and the Red Headed Problem to be given his walking papers.

Crossing over, maybe beating TO, and then being destroyed by Montreal doesn't help anything.

Expose things for what they are and get back on track to being the flagship, not the joke.

We'd be winning this game with adequate kicking

Carter is having a pretty bad night at receiver. He's pretty useless so far..

He was looking right at Nichols who threw him open... and didn't do anything about it.

He's been awful.

I'm not on the fire Kavis bandwagon, but that's a terrible decision to not kick a FG there. Give your kicker some confidence...

Good thing our GM only gave up a 1st round pick and a HOF QB to try and get some.

You hate Tillman we get it man. You want Danny Mac back? Would that be better?

Anyway, it's Jyles time.

Kavis Reed is such a horrible coach. Boyd looks great.

Boyd over Messam.

Boyd has barely carried the ball all season and he's a RB who gets better with more carries in a game. Messam has been bad since he has returned.

If Charles is out in PO start Boyd.

So this record is for Canadian running backs only not RB in general
Congrats I guess I'm not a big fan of the guy

Sherritt needs 2 tackles to break the record.

Fumble!
