I love Dunigan and don't get the dislike. He's very knowledgeable. I always learn something from the guy. It helps that he was a QB as he sees the game from the point of view of a QB. He may be the best colour man in years.
Wonderful. Just what we need, an injury to Watkins.
If this team would have come out to play in the second half we could have avoided this by resting our starters. Really annoying the conservative mindset this franchise always has because they're afraid to be accused of "running up the score".
The Eskimos just dominate this whole game, their prize? Defensive starter suffers a significant injury. Geez. I hope he's ok.
They've been dominated the entire second half because they went into a prevent mode at halftime on both sides of the ball. The stats in the second half are dominant in Montreal's favor. If they had a competent QB, they'd be winning this game with the way we've played the last 25 minutes of actual game time.
If we hadn't stepped off the gas pedal in the third quarter and put this game out of reach we would have been able to rest starters and prevent Samuels getting injured.
No, they have not. The Esks clearly taken their foot off the gas, but the Als have never been in any contention of winning this game at any point.
The Esks made this game much closer than it needed to be. The Als may not have had a shot of winning the game, but it doesn't matter. The Esks lack a killer instinct and let teams hang around too often.

Just frustrating. I'd rather not waste my time watching 30 minutes of low quality lackadaisical play. This team should have put up 50 points on a horrible Montreal team. Look at all the injuries we sustained due to keeping our starters in. Watkins and Samuels could have been prevented if we'd ended this midway through the third. At least Watkins seems okay.
