  1. Funny that I just read 15 pages of this thread and none of those rider fans who were here chirping all week had nothing to say...
  2. Better question, why didn't Ottawa and Montreal play against each other?
  3. Not a chance. If he takes 2 or 3 steps, he's faster than the Flash... Watching the game on TSN Demand at 1:01:09 the ball is not snapped, at 1:01:10 Rempel is trucked. So according to you in 1 second Rempel snapped the ball lifted his head and took 2 or 3 steps? I think he actually snaps the ball at 1:01:10. Rempel actually seems to be in the motion of lifting his head when he gets hit. In my opinion, that's a vulnerable position.
  4. Put me in the group that thinks Lapo is overrated. The media gushes about him, that he is some type of mad scientist or genius. I just don't see it. I don't trust that he can create a game plan that plays to Streveler's strengths.
  5. What do you think Nichols is going to ask for in the offseason? $650k?
  6. They didn't take Nichols out because he sucks, they put Streveler in because he's a threat to run with the ball. EVERYBODY knew we were going to run the ball, the D has to respect Streveler's ability to run the ball and can't focus solely on Harris.
  7. The Ti-Cats were way more physical than we were tonight. The Ti-Cats D knows how to play against Lapo and Nichols. They played a solid game, so hats off to them. We all know Nichols had a bad game tonight, but I don't think the receivers really helped him out. There were a few times it looked like guys were running the same routes, maybe because of the injuries. We've got work to do. We got smacked in the mouth, let's see how we respond. We're on to the Argos.

  9. I was going to say now that the pre-practice squad is no longer around there should be plenty of rooms. Then I remembered that they would have been long gone before Grey Cup week anyways... 😂
  10. Is there a window where only Edmonton and BC are allowed to sign people?
  11. I fear he may not be ready yet. He could probably use some more time to learn the defenses. Maybe next year he takes another step forward, but I would be really hesitant to hand the keys over right away.
  12. Sadly we got beat by a better team today. The media gives Lapo WAY too much credit for a little bit of success, and never talks about how BAD his offense is when it is off. In my mind it's an offense that relies on the D to make mistakes. Calgary is way too disciplined to fall for that, which is why they shut us down today. Claybrooks just stole his lunch money. There is no way he is close to a head coaching job again in this league any time soon, no matter how much the media loves to toss his name out there. Also, I don't think inserting Streveler today would have won us the game. Sadly I think Nichols gave us the best chance to win, but man is he boring to watch.
  13. I believe September 30th, against Montreal, was the last time the Riders threw for a TD. I can't stand how salty they are over that loss. Everytime I'm on Twitter there is still so much whining by rider fans. In my opinion Bridge gave them a better chance to beat us than Collaros. They were a terrible team. I also don't think the Jeffcoat hit was that bad. I would love to see an angle from the other side of the field. I've only seen two angles, one being the ref cam, and both seem to have been blocked by someone. To me it looks like Jeffcoat leads with his shoulder and makes contact with Bridge's shoulder first, his head just stayed in motion. Tack on 15 yards and pretend Bridge wasn't hurt, he still would have to have completed a 50 yard hail mary pass. That's not the reason they lost.
  14. I believe the injury Nichols suffered at the beginning of the year is really impacting his play. I also believe he really only trusts Harris, Dressler, and Adams. As soon as Dressler got injured it seems like he's only going to Harris or Adams, and it becomes easy to defend. Same thing happened last year when Dressler went out, then Adams. Also, Nichols can't throw a deep ball, and never has been able to. Put Streveler in and watch him distribute the ball all around. Just look how much more Wolitarsky was involved in the games where Streveler started. I believe Wolitarsky is not being used enough. Nichols is not the same player he was last year, and I'm scared that waiting for him to regain his form is going to put us on the outside looking in come playoff time...
