Do you honestly believe that this score is not reflective of Nichols horrible play? Is that SERIOUSLY what you're saying?

Are you shoving glue in your eyes? Our d is completely imploding. Nichols and the offense aren't cutting the mustard either. They aren't mutually exclusive

That's literally exactly my point. The issue I have is that you're defending Nichols.

Nichols sucks. He can't make a play. Harris drags the team on his back and Nichols can't make an open throw, even when Harris is standing in the flat and not moving. Thus we go two or three plays then punt. This has happened several times. That's why our defense has cracked.

Nichols may not be playing great, but I put the blame more on Lapo.

He's calling garbage today.

This has and will always be the problem with Nichols. He's a game manager that needs a strong run game and defense behind him to win. It almost seems he dislikes being forced to throw the ball, he wants to nickle and dime on his own terms. If you get down a couple TD's its goodnight. The problem is the CFL isn't a game manager league.

I never used to mind the Stamps cause they're just a non-factor for me.. but that's so douchey. Now I really hope we come back and burn them

I know we would have kept the ball, but Harris has got to be smarter than to attempt that lateral as he's going down.  Mistakes will kill you in this kind of a game.

One guy wants to make plays and one guy wants to take a knee.

So first of all, the defence has been very bad. No doubt about that. In fairness to them, good QBs make good defences look bad sometimes but that’s no real excuse. 

With that in mind, Nichols has been horrendous. He relies very heavily on guys being wide open and his receivers making plays after catch. That’s not happening today and he cannot get anything done.

Bottom line.. We put up 2 fgs.. They put up TDs. Our O HAS 86 yards.. Lots of that is Harris

Exactly. We're at our 5 and everyone knows its going to Harris and he rumbles for 20. Nichols can't make a 10 yard completion. It's impossible to win with garbage QB play.

Yeah but the frustrating part is that our run game has been acceptable tonight, but he's not helping out Harris.
