Reed's ego is almost as big as Tillman's...refusing to put in Nichols just to prove a point is a fireable offense

he should be gone after today's game

Even Glen Suiter is questioning why they stopped using Charles in the first half.

I trust my eyes, the stats, and everyone in the CFL other than Tillman sorry.

He won't be. The Eskimos are cultivating a poisonous old boys club to rival the Oilers.

Every call was helpign the Argos when we had the momentum.
I'm the biggest homer there is and I don't think any of those were even moderately questionable. The refs have had zero impact on this game - the Eskimos are terrible.

you don't think being put in down 24 points is a bad position? then we'll have to disagree. it is a bad posiiton to be put in.

It's obvious to everyone except apparently the coaching staff.

Stamps came out and said as much during the week. But why listen to your best offensive weapon?

I really hope Reed is fired for this mess. Pathetic.

4 broken tackles. This defense is ridiculous.

How is it a bad position? No one think the Esks have a chance, and really they don't. He has basically 0 pressure, just has to go out there and try his best.

We badly need a turnover. We need to be blitzing 7, and hopefully Ray will fumble under pressure.

I'm sure that Nichols wants to win but he's not responsible for this hole. The game is out of reach. It's audition time for him and he has the opportunity to show the Eskimos that they made a poor, ill-informed decision.

All of these botched tackles just illustrate the fact that J.C. Sherritt is the Eskimos' MVP and the most outstanding defensive player in the CFL.

good point. although before the game 95% of us thought starting joesph was a poor, ill-informed decision.

The only one in need of convincing is Reed, who if there is any justice at all, will be unemployed in about 2 hours.

The Edmonton sports media are all over the Eskimos on Twitter.

@heavyoilcountry Since when did "reasonable" enter the conversation? #Eskimos decision making questionable from the very top on down
Hopefully, they ask some really tough questions following the game and tomorrow.
