I'm defending on anything. I will not lose any sleep over one regular season game.

4) Option 1 or 2

5) SURPRISE!!!!!

Did you completely miss the blocked kick where Calgary brought the house and got 7 players in the backfield and with 4 coming clean?

If I'm Jones I'm real worried about punting it from the endzone and not confident in the slightest that we would get the ball away. If I'm Jones I'm also knowing at this point that the special teams coaching is the weak link on this football club.

So in fairness Jones hands are tied there and he knew that the Esks had no answer to the block stunt Calgary was able to pull. Had Calgary needed another I think they could've done it again quite easily.

A lot of people being negative but we were the better club in this one and lost the game on special teams.

WE scored 22 pts (should've been 29 with the STamps TD called back on a lame call)

To put that into perspective Calgary has given up only 30pts all year.

We put the ball in the endzone 3 times in 1 game (yeah I'm including the Stamps TD in that) and Calgary only gave up 1Td in their 3 previous games.

So yeah whats all the *****ing and moaning about?

What would have getting the first down accomplished? Nothing. At least punting puts Calgary far away, maybe even out of FG range. Not a single reason to try that stupid play and it cost them. Eerily similar to some Kavis Reed decisions of last year.

I don't care about how many points we put up, they put up more. End of story.

Absolutely ridiculous that people are calling for Jones head after 1 loss in a 4-1 season.

jebus, just stop.

Jones is the best thing that's happened to this club in a decade.

No, it was similar to Tom Higgins decision.

You gamble and succeed, you're a genius. You gamble and fail, you're a bum who should be run out of town.

Never change, Edmonton.

Nobody's calling for his head.

People ARE questioning an important decision in a game against their provincial rival, even worse that he STANDS BY THE CALL.

But maybe he just really wanted Mitchell to get the record and run our futility against our most hated rival even further.

There's no irony in this post whatsoever.

Who is saying to run him out of town? People are calling him out on a bad decision that cost his team the game.

The risk of getting the punt blocked isn't worth the gamble of running a fake 10 yards deep in your endzone in a tied game with 24 seconds left in the half.

Calgary would have gone for the block there by bringing the house and I'm quite sure they would have got it again. This remember was the same half of football and the Esks would still be wondering what happened on the first one. That Calgary got into the backfield so clean and with so many players would sure make me question punting the ball from the endzone.

If I'm coach I manage the clock better there and don't throw the long pass. Keep the ball on the ground and hope to churn out the clock. if not concede a safety.

Calgary had the block stunt and only had to use it once in the game. They would've used it again as the Esks had no answer to it at that point.

That is still called 'run him out of town' mentality.

If they rush and get by shaw just takes the safety....pretty simple stuff here.

So because it happened once, it's bound to happen again? That's not very good logic. You go with the safe play each and every time.

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?
