The yardage is something like 150 yards to 0 yards for the Lions in the 3rd quarter. It's official: The Oilers are no longer the worst professional franchise in Edmonton.
Agreed on all points.

Don't forget though...according to Hervey the Eskimos are rebuilding.

Mat dunigan is perhaps the worst ever colorman tsn has ever had on cfl telecasts.

He doesn't listen to Rod Black?

It's pretty funny because all week I was reading that the Eskimos were "simplifying" their offensive playbook in preparation for this game. That's funny because I'm seeing the same tired, blasť offensive plays (all three of them) that I see every week.

Nice grandstanding, Lions.

Remember when the Stamps kept doing that and they kept losing in the playoffs?

Karma.

My buddy spent a couple years working with the esks on the video review staff and told me sams is a complete moron.

well, I watched almost the whole game, and that was pathetic.
There sure were consequences. I think the Esks looked even worse this week, since they couldn't use the weather as an excuse.

Reilly throws like Tim Tebow. he's awful.
speaking of awful, so was the offensive line, the defensive secondary, the hands of the esks receivers, and especially the coaching.

And people were guaranteeing the esks would win AT LEAST 10 games this year?

Guess I wasn't one of the negative nancys after all, who should shut up and support the team. I was a stone cold realist.

At least Crompton looked decent. No hesitation on his throws, strong arm.

Actually after Nichols went down I called the organization a joke.

I TRIED to be positive, but after that happened I knew we were going nowhere.

This organization has less direction than the Calgary Flames.

The coaching here has been a joke for so many years now that most Eskimo fans have forgotten what good coaching looks like.

*hyperventilate*..."there has to be consequences".....

Crompton needs to start next week. If he doesn't then I'm not giving this team a dime for the rest of the year.

I think you mean the Oilers...even the Flames have a ways to go before they match the futility of the Oilers franchise. Oiler fans have no ammunition to take shots at any other NHL franchise.

That aside perhaps football comparisons are a little more relevant.

if he started, he'd be the victim of bad coaches and receivers.
granted, he seems to have a far better arm than reilly with his tebow stylings, but Reilly is only one of the problems right now.

I've said it since I saw him play in the preseason. Crompton is the best QB on this team. Reilly hasn't done anything other than show up and be annointed the starter. He has been given 4 games now and has done next to nothing. Time to give Crompton some time. He will make some mistakes but he is big, has a cannon of an arm and gets the ball out quickly.

I've seen enough of Mr Happy Feet and his 2 yard runs up the middle.

Playing against a prevent defence is pretty meaningless in evaluating a QB.

Reilly is bad but the only thing that gives him a chance at improving is playing time.
