Could Kevin Glenn be any more pathetic. Guy has deer in the headlights all day. Big chance and this is what he's doing.

inexcusable fumble in his own end, time count, looking terribly nervous.

Stamps turn the ball over on their own 40, Argos lose yds, but get saved on the mysterious major foul that I still haven't spotted and get a gift TD.

W T F else is new.

What a ****ing joke.

Cornish of course is completely useless in this game and Kachert ripping it up.

Is it just me or has it seemed that the Argos way is being paved with poor opponent performances.

No way is Calgary matching intensity right now. From that first Ray TD on the first play they had a big opportunity and looked flat as a pancake.


Screw the stamps to hell for taking out the Lions just to blow a tire in this game. **** this ****.

Yeah I agree the cfl can often be the more interesting game to watch similar to the WJC anything can happen but in the NFL usually the team that's supposed to win does and the NFL can be a slower and more boring game

Yeah, an absolute soiled his pants performance. What a useless bag of ****.

On what basis other than Glenn completely crapping his panties are the Argos up two TD's


Can't wait for the synopsis on RR being Joe Montana though. Ray hasn't even had to complete a forward pass and his club is up two TD's

This seems like its bought.

Haha, suck it Calgary. Hope they get their ass totally kicked now. The fact that they were basically an 8-10 team disguised as a 12-6 one is starting to show.

Pretty much ironically, like Toronto has been viewed for years.
Dont they deserve it after their inability to build a team around Ray for as long as they had him? This org needs changes from the top down, they need some accomplished football people running the show.

I was for the Ray trade at the time but it's pretty clear that it's possible to build a team around Ray. He's not playing any better for the Argos then he was in Edmonton he just has a better team around him with better coaching that's able to use his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. He had amazing years statistically here while we were missing the playoffs, obviously he had and still has talent that can be a champion. We stuck with Macioccia for so many years despite those failures and then went to Tillman who has obviously lost it and had nobody on the management side with the guts or football knowledge to question his questionable moves.

This org needs a major rebuild from the top down and even media people from the outside can see it. It was mentioned on TSN's the Reporters earlier today by a Toronto media guy, we need changes above the GM position. As much as I like Ed Hervey I hope they go outside for the next GM. Get some College Football who has a history of working in and building a complete Football deparment.

Go figure though, that when Ray was here, he wasn't giving it his all.

Grasping straws.

You should consider a career in comedy.

Second, btw. 2005 was all Jason Maas.

Ray won the 2005 Grey Cup. Maas helped out in the Western final.

And the West SF. Mass is far more responsibly for our GC in 2005 than Ray was.

Oh right. Doing nothing to get us anywhere. Ray is severely overrated. I'd take Calvillo over Ray every day of the week. Burris too.
I think most of us would take Calvillo over Ray.

...Burris though? No way.

RIiiiight the guy who was named game MVP had nothing to do with his team winning. THe backup who never saw the field should get all the credit.
