Our recievers our not as good as everyone thinks. Lawler average,  Demski good but injured, Bailey shouldn't be on the team, McKnight should take Bailey's spot.  Woli is under used  Adam's is our best. We need taller recievers.

- Adams and Lawler both had very uncharacteristic drops/misses. Inexcusable but this can be cleaned up- they weren?t on today
- Demski?s versatility, speed and break-away capabilities are very valuable and noticed when absent
- Love Bailey as a person but I agree he isn?t good enough. Sorry bud.
- McKnight is is ok as a backup/fill in I guess. Haven?t seen enough
- Woli plays field side which isn?t supposed to get thrown to often. He?s very good in a limited role but you?re not going to see him get 10+ targets again. Great role player though.

Bottom line, get Demski back healthy, Adams gets the first game jitters over with, and Lawler gives his head a shake, and this core is very capable. Need to support them with a run game, too, btw.

It isn't a tallness thing - they had a bad game, it was Darvins first game since the Grey Cup.  Lawler has been very good. I thought we had a practice roster guy who was really good but injured. 

Toronto is a good team

We can win with this bunch - Demski back along with Harris...

The offensive game plan was an issue as well some really bad drops.  Darvin hangs on to the catch at the one and it may be a different game

Why would Mcknight be on the team. That group need something else

Where's the guy that played for BC last yr they played.  Carter?
We do need help at receiver....

Was Jefferson injured?

Ardarius Stewart. I was so excited to see him play. Unfortunate about the injury. Same with Cam Merideth (injured since like day 1 of TC and released earlier this week)

Lets face it, having Demski and Harris out is like taking 70% of your offense away. The guys we have playing clearly aren?t capable of picking up the slack, especially in demski?s place, the dude is under appreciated. Olivera had a good first week but has been silent since then.

One bad game and our receivers suck.  Right.

We have a good group and decent depth.

But yes they struggled today and agree we miss Demski and Harris.

Our recievers our not as good as everyone thinks. Lawler average,  Demski good but injured, Bailey shouldn't be on the team, McKnight should take Bailey's spot.  Woli is under used  Adam's is our best. We need taller recievers.
Bailey is fine.  Lawler shows signs he could be very good. Huge over simplifying asking for taller receivers. 
Why would Mcknight be on the team. That group need something else

Mcknight playing because of injury, can't write him off this early.  Looks ok for backup, let him learn before crap on him.  Carter, terrible idea,.

70%, nope way overstated.  Yes they both key parts but they don't get 70% of plays, not even close.  Last season everyone contributed, expect same this year.  Demski and Harris are almost impossible to replace as they are both exceptional vets with specific skills and special gifts.

Nah, we have good group that will continue to grow and develop.  Good mix of Canadians, Americans, vets and prospects.

Big early season setbacks

And yes give Toronto credit, they out played and out coached us and are a good club.

Bailey isn't great, but he's fine.  He made a clutch 2nd down grab before garbage time.  2 drops make him look worse than he is, but even Adams had more drops than that.

Don't forget, Bailey had a TD, beauty where he called his own play to Zach when he knew he beat coverage.  2 TDs in 2 weeks... that's not a garbage receiver.

McKnight actually looked very good in his limited action.  Breaking tackles and getting YAC on every touch.  But silent later, probably means couldn't get open; rookies never get the slick routes right away.

Adams is fine.  He's not Rogers, he doesn't climb the ladder to 11 feet like Rogers.  No way he makes that catch anytime in his career.  That's fine though, he's great at what he does.  He's awesome at beating the one defender after catch to go get the TD.

Lawler had a bad day.  He'll fix that.  I guarantee it.

Hey, what's the common aspect here: Zach.  He was pressed all night and later on he was really zipping those balls!  He was also not on target sometimes, especially in H1.  Quite a few were just behind rather than just in front of crossers.  Those were dropped.

That said, Zach stayed composed and almost pulled off a comeback in garbage time.  But the D was too gassed.  Should have onside kicked even though it's against the book.  That D wasn't going to stop a JV team late in the 4th.

Agree with all buy onside kick.  We sent the house and could have caused a turn over, it didn't work and we got beat bad, happens.

I agree, I couldn't see MOS putting up with his crap. NFL cutting down to 80 players on August 24, 53 players on August 31.
