Re: Is it time to institute replay for helmet to helmet contact?

Good points, Guys.

Rugby tackling.

No helmets.

Leather helmets.

Consider methods to prevent concussions.

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

Not a fan of Singleton as he seems to be something of a showboat. But he can play. Calgary's defence fully exploits his speed, and his ability to read the play. His form tackling reminds me of Adam Bighill. Singleton and JJ24. (Not many highlights for us in the CFL clip.) 2017-09-20_0209.png

We blitz. Screen pass. Touchdown.

Ty Long prevents a TD on a punt return by Finch. Although Purifoy with his speed might have run him down.

STs. The punt would have been blocked by B.C.

But no backup. No one spying on the outside.

Maver takes off. From 3rd and 15 to 1st down.

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

A wider angle look. 5 receivers. 8 in coverage. No one has found a hole in the zone. Jennings tries to force it in. Calgary was sitting on the routes very well. "He was waiting and reading the throwing angle in the lane," says Suitor. His pass might have made it, but the underneath man slides over t...

8 men back, covering 5 receivers. Anybody open? Manny is surrounded. Picked off.

"Mitchell, a lot of steamboats," says Cuthbertson.

Very nice pass to McDaniel, who found a hole in the 9 man zone.

Jennings does not get those steamboats, IMO.

Ty Long :thup:

FGs 4/4

Punting Avg 54.4

We've seen him make tackles as well this year.

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

A question for those Lionbackers who like to break the game down after it's done and dusted (after a loss I tend to delete the game from my PVR without looking at it....my intestinal fortitude is not very strong these days). What did you think of Foucault at right tackle? I recall he distinctly whi...

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

The defence has "5 in the box," as they say. To me we should run against this formation all day, until they prove they can stop the run. I recall Barrin Simpson talking about not having enough defenders in the box against the run. This was at practice many years ago. Is it still possible to force th...

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

Thanks for the breakdowns, WCJ. I had intended to go through the PVR and try to get a sense of what type of pressure the Stamps were bringing and why Jennings was having trouble dealing with it, but I just haven't yet brought myself to watch the game again. A positive sign is that the Stamps had fo...
