Title: Heat Check, where is everyone's head right now...
Post by: 66 Chevelle on July 27, 2019, 03:47:55 PM
thought I'd do a 'heat check' to see where everyone's head is at after last nights performance...

There is no such thing as a perfect season. I'm glad that this happened now. The team will be fine.

One loss, not a big deal, move onto Toronto.

Don't you mean heart check? Never heard of a "heat" check! Lol!
The Blie have played very well all year.  Two weird mistakes in the first Quarter did them in.
Don't do that! Lol!

After 11 beers and a massive Ribeye, I am a little hot, I think it is a hangover coupled with the meat sweats. On a side note lake of woods blueberry ale is a really nice change of pace beer.

As to my day after reaction, I am glad we lost now, winning is always good but sometimes being humbled is better in the long run. With TO up next we have real good opportunity to get our mojo back. I said it before and I really do believe that our following game at home against Cal. Will be the best test for us.

We lost to the only team that can beat us right now...OURSELVES. The team obviously lacked focus last night.

So true. I knew after Hamilton's TD drive and the botched toss to Lucky that it just wasn't our night. On to Toronto.

Lets not fool ourselves, we came up against a very good Hamilton D. maybe the best in the CFL right now,  their rush was very good and when Matt tried to escape to the outside...he was cut off at the pass.  Not many teams can do that to us.  It will be a different story in TO.

Exactly. Let's give the Hamilton defence some credit. They get paid to play too.

True but we still win if we don't turn over the ball 5 times in our own end. Football is an incredibly hard game to play your best every week. This is a one off imo.

Hamilton has their priorities right, both lines are good.

We weren't used to the stink in Ham town so the guys couldn't breath... lol.. no but seriously I think the guys had too many easy games the past few weeks and didnt prepare hard enough for Hamilton... hope it doesnt happen again.. the guys need to know that every game is important and they need to prepare no matter what team they face whether it's a good team or bad one.

A little from B, but mostly A.

But man was I ever pissed off while I was watching the game...

Agreed. There were too many mistakes by many players. Al that considered we were beat in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Even without the mistakes we may have still not won.

Impossible to contemplate how things would have looked if Masoli played the entire game. The score flattered the Bombers IMO.

Disappointed certainly. Not concerned yet at the moment but the problems were not the surprise some are thinking.

Our OL is a work in progress with new starters. Not horrible and has upside but a very good DL is  going to give them issues.

I was as concerned how invisible our LB's were for most of the game. Bighill showed some rust. Gaitor got injured. Wilson while not playing badly is not playing to the level I hoped for. Even the Ticat back up WIL ( Shorthill ) was all over the field making playing.

I can understand giving up run yardage when you prevent the QB from passing success but I would have thought we could do both. The 1st Ticat series was a concern.
