A couple of things stand out for me on these- 1. on the trick punt by the Riders, impressive hussle by Gauthier to come across the field and make the tackle!!!, 2. on the direct snap to Adams and TD pass to Harris, that was a great play, but lost in that is Strev is down at the goal line ready to lay a block for him, now there's hussle and a team mater for ya!! How can you not love this guy!!!

Yep the Medlock kick and touch was a thing of beauty and a thing of stupidity by the RB.

Gauthier tackle was amazing as well.

yep the fact that Medlock hustled his butt downfield and knocked the ball out of bounds was a BIG play that changed the complexion of that game!   The pass Adams threw to Harris was a perfect strike!   That Rider fake punt was well executed and fooled everyone....then Gauthier comes out of nowhere for a TD saving tackle.

The WF trick punt return fake-out was the most embarrassing moment from all of MOS's tenure.  We got out-MOS'd by SSK.  In a playoff.

I knew it the very instant he caught it that we were hoisted by our own petard from our own use of that exact play vs that exact same team.  It was one of my all-time favorite MOS plays.  It's forever ruined and tainted by allowing SSK to pull it off on us.

Well, at least you know our ST for at least 3 years won't be fooled by it again.

Congrats to SSK for pulling it off and making us look silly.  Well played Dickerson The Lesser, well played.

And thanks to all our STers like Gauthier, Miller, Miles, Briggs, Exume, et al, who all made big contributions this year, and most had critical big plays in the playoffs.

Every team gets toasted by a trick play on occasion. It sucks it was Sask doing it to us but at least the end result of it was nothing.

All well and fine.  But it was our trick play!  I've only seen that play in the CFL twice in 10 years: when MOS did it to SSK, and when Dickerson The Lesser did it to WPG.  The look on MOS as his guys come off the field after getting burned by it says it all.  Hoisted by his own petard.  I bet the greenie fans, at least the ones who remembered it, were lapping it up and almost made up for the loss.

Embarrassing.
