We know your disappointed, mad, upset, and who knows what else.  It doesn't negate the fact we have had a top 2 CFL team for the past four years with some pretty impressive and entertaining games along with 4 consecutive Grey Cup appearances.  Get a good sleep tonight and hopefully you will feel better in the morning.

Congrats on the dumbest post of the year.

Three good teams in the entire league this year and none of them win the Grey Cup.

Just depressing.

There were four good teams, one of them went on a 8 game streak, beat the best in the east and west and won it all.

Good for Montreal for getting hot in the play-offs, but they were not on the same level as Winnipeg, Toronto, and BC over the course of the year.

the Als we're like the 2019 Bombers who went on a roll at the right time and then crushed Hamilton in the Grey Cup.....the Als didn't dominate as we did back then however they made just a few more plays than we did....enough to win the game

I LOSHT MY MEMBER IN AN UNFORTUNATE SHMELTING ACCSHIDENT!

Vikings - 4 superbowl appearances, zero wins.

Bombers - 4 consecutive GC appearances, 2 wins, 1 loss by 1, 1 loss by 4...

Pretty good start to a dynasty

Who cares by how many points you lose in a championship game? It's a loss all the same and we had to watch another team hoist the Grey Cup - again.

Dynasty denied for a second straight year. And the Bombers have nobody to blame but themselves for another mostly stinky performance on the biggest stage.

The Rider fans are sure happy with our loss, but just as we would be if they lost in the GC. Remember laughing when they had 13 players (known as a Rider dozen) on the field and Mtl missed the field goal only to be penalized and then Mtl makes the kick to win the GC.

My sentiments exactly. It's not that we lost, its how we lost, for the second year in a row. We didn't learn from our mistakes from the year before, we merely repeated them. Sad really. You'd think the sting of last year would have made sure we didn't commit turnovers in the red zone, nope, did it again. Don't give up the big offensive play in the dying moments to lose the game. Nope, let that happen again. So much for our coordinators for being genius's, they're insane--they're doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results.

It's not an excuse, but MTL was blessed by the Football Injury Gods.  A big contrast to half our R corps being injury-challenged.  I'm not sure MTL was down any key player, nor were any even nicked up badly.  Even Lemon made a miraculous recovery after looking like a non-contact season-ender.  And in-game we were dropping like flies (though returning) whilst MTL suffered not a single injury?

I have to believe we'd have been that 1% better had the main guys been 100%, and guys like Parker not having in-game issues.  And that 1% might have been enough.  Again, not an excuse, but guaranteed a contributing factor.  Funny that MTL was so lucky on that front compared to the "big 3" teams.

Part of it may be chalked up to MTL being significantly younger in nearly every regard.

Ya, in the hotel it probably took me 3 hours to fall asleep, and I was dead tired after the weekend.  Going over all the plays in my head.  If it was like that for me, I can only imagine what it was like for the team.  Probably never got to sleep.

In my haze I came to the conclusion there's no way we should have given them that low-percentage, medium-long-developing 3rd down 20Y pass.  That was the game right there.  No way that should have gotten off or succeeded.  Take a freakin' timeout there and get your DL plan in line.  Run and pass blitz.  It was one-on-one with that R anyhow, so force the throw slightly off.  That play was the Leggs blocked kick of this year.

You're right.  It was basically the same game for us as last year.  Developed the same way, allowed them to come back the same way, gave up a big 2nd&20 QB run at a critical time.  Went uber-conservative on the pass game in the 2nd H.  Absolutely no shots for circus catches, nothing to show we have the best receivers (which we do).  The lamest non-panic-time drive / 2'n'outs.  Trying to close out the game with Brady when everyone knew it was coming and thus it was guaranteed stuffed.

2 GC's with AH as the feature back.  2 wins.
2 GC's with BO as the feature back.  2 losses.  Just sayin'.  AH got those 5 yards even when the box was stuffed late in the game.

I was thinking that, even at the time. On 3rd down, why not stop the clock? It gives your team a chance to figure out what they want to do. If the defense holds, the timeout doesn't matter. If not, well, at least you gave yourself some time to think and it's not like MTL would have been affected (going forward) with a few extra seconds.
