Saskatchewan Roughriders: Regina, Sask.
I wasn't at the game and in some ways I'm glad I wasn't. I would have no voice today from being horse from the game. I could have been OK until the last 5 minutes of the game when yelling and screaming and cheering would have been mandatory for all. With only 3 seconds on the clock I'm afraid I really would have went horse yelling at Coach Miller: "NO, don't do it!". The big question in Saskatchewan today and last night for those driving home last night would have been "What was he thinking?"
My bet is he was thinking if Congi misses the 35 yd field goal (unlikely) we will lose when they run it back for a touchdown. This is more likely since we aren't great at stopping those runbacks. Johnson of course was kicking great all night, had the wind at his back, so he should be able to do the the 55 yards. What else ould he be thinking? What he should have thinking though was how great Congi is. He is quickly earning the nickname Robokicker II. How many games have we won based on a field goal in the last three seconds. More than I care to remember.
I can't help but wonder though if it was Daley who suggested this insane approach to a win. His offensive play calling has been suspect lately.
Then there is the O-line who was practically flawless last night. What happened? I can only guess it was playing with intensity, at home. What we saw Durant and the receivers do last night is what happens when the O-line is playing as it should. Now the next worry - the D-line.
