So they want us to party after this hmm

@sunterryjones: Attendance 35,869. Biggest crowd of CFL opening weekend.
@sunterryjones: But normal Saskatchewan game here draws over 40,000. So no smiles from Eskimos with that either.

It's not a very impressive number but I am surprised its the biggest of opening weekend
35,869 is stupid low for a game between the Eskimos and the Riders on a season opener. It just shows how far this franchise has fallen. There are probably far more melon heads in attendance as well.

Oh lord, Mike Reilly is having a meltdown

I don't care what anybody says, WE'RE BETTER THAN WINNIPEG!

That's my guy, don't give up Kavis.

as usual the Esky coach/management talk a lot bigger than they walk.

I'm sure Reed will find the silver lining in this steaming pile of hot garbage.

Reilly has been hit 18 times today including 3 sacks. Absolutely absurd.

O-line or not, he's been terrible, but it's just one game, you could tell he absolutely blew a gasket, the guy was running on fumes today. Lets see a larger sample size from him.

edit:wow Chambers worst game of his life

I don't blame Reilly for his play today. He got hit at least 20 times and was labouring after every hit. We're going to be down to Joseph and Crompton before too long.

Man the coaching was bad today. Just terrible gameplanning and playcalling by both offensive and defensive coordinators. Marshall's a CFL coaching vet - he should know better than this. Cortez and Hall outcoached Marshall and Sams badly today.

I do not like Chambers.

Offensive line is terrible once again.

That is all.

Seems like a reoccurring theme from last season imo. Team didn't seem prepared and the playcalling was sub par.

Coaching needs to be under the spot light imo.

Well that was a crap show.

Who called that last play before the half? I surely hope it wasn't anyone on the Esk's payroll. There is no excuse for that type of stupid play. We were lucky to be only down by 14 going into the half. I thought, not bad, could be worse. Boy was I wrong!

Stupid penalties and why is it that every other damn team in this league has some legitimate plays and we have nothing.

Our O Line? Jesus, Reilly was running for his life most of the game.

We sucked in all facets of the game today and for the first time, I wanted to smack Kavis Reed upside the head. It was just a disaster.

Well I guess the good thing is that this is game one and it wouldn't take much to improve on that inept display.

Rant over.

It was funny seeing Burnett catch the ball and look down to see five Riders coming at him with no blockers in sight.

I'm a STH and just got home, and finally had a chance to post.
haven't yet read any other posts since noon.

to all of you who mocked the cynical/realistic people like me because we're "not supporting the team", this is why.

the esks were bent over today, and were a PATHETIC team, especially on offense.

the best example of what team you'll see this year was illustrated with the last play of the first half. which never should have happened.

ladies and gentlemen, lead by Kavis Reed, your Edmonton Eskimos.
what we saw today was a joke, and get used to it. again.

perect weather. esks. riders. and only 35,000.
goes to show how the team has been run into the ground as it should have easily been 45,000.

and todays game reminds people why they stay away. there were a lot of people around me at the beginning of the game hoping it would be closer than 14-0 after the 1st. that was their best case senario.

I don't blame the fans. I blame the esks management and coaching over the last 6-7 years.

Honestly, as much slack as Hervey will get simply because he's not Tillman, he made some pretty questionable moves himself this offseason.

Letting Brown and Williams go on the corners and replacing them with basically a Hamilton castoff and unproven rookies, trading a good Canadian O-lineman and cutting the biggest part of the return (Rockhill), not recruiting good talent at receiver, etc.

Who started this fall to disgrace? What is it with our teams? Between the Oilers and the Esks, I seriously wonder how such great franchises could have been butchered to the point of being laughing stocks.

At the least the Oilers are somewhat exciting. The display put on in a season opener is just horrific.

The Oilers are about as exciting as watching paint dry outside of Hall and Yakupov and Schultz.
