What the hell are you talking about.. cant blame this on the D? regardless of the turnover (mmm cherry turnovers) its the Ds job to stop the other team... you know just like saskatchewans D did very effectively.

Then you don't get it. I can't teach you football 101 on the sandbox...

Seriously though, if Saskatchewan scrimmaged at their 30 yard line on average they'd have 80 yards to go to score. Yesterday Saskatchewan was scrimmaging in the Winnipeg half of the field almost all game (mostly because of those turnovers).

When the defence has to defend a team time and time that has only 15 yards to go to score a field goal or less than 55 yards to score a TD you are asking too much of them.

Our D was as solid as it could be when they get no rest between scores. Our special teams was pretty solid too. The blame is on the offense, without a doubt.

Defence, no matter how awesome, get tired if they are playing more than the offense.

then the problem is in the training. EVERY guy should be able to play 120 minutes non stop. never mind the breaks they get. We are talking professional atheletes here.

HELL I was at a track and field coaching clinic on Sunday and I was going hard for 3 hours straight. and I damn well better be more out of shape then anyone on that team.

I didn't watch the game, but I'm not going to blame the defense for this. You can't expect to rack points when you're always on guard.

ha ha ha seriously if these guys can not be on field for "2 solid hours" then they should not be playing professional. Considering how many time outs, commerical breaks, time in between plays there is.. 2 solid hours is a joke.

No offense Dean, but it's quite obvious you know absolutely nothing about football.

lets see... two seperate teams... or more.. each player.. "plays" for at most 1 minute with a minute rest.. and usually less then 5 minutes without a major rest well the other "team" of his team takes the field. Shite the only game where the "atheletes" play less is baseball.. maybe golf.

Everyone join the fire Mike Kelly face book group!

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=113878707469&ref=mf
Someone named Vicki is saying that we're all just a bunch of sore losers and that kelly is doing the best he can! LOL
This was my response to her.

Vicki the world isn't sunshine and lollypops. In the world of professional football if you don't produce results you get fired. Not only is Kelly a shitty coach but he is arrogant and unprofessional. And he is the mastermind behind the most ineffective and pathetic offense ever. There is some very basic and fundamental rules about running an offense that Kelly completely ignores, and look at the results. Pig headed also. Not to mention he also traded away or didn't sign half of are starters.

All this team needed was a few tweaks at the end of last year to be a competitive football team, instead Kelly dismantled the team and replaced it with this monstrosity.

MIKE KELLY SHOULD BE FIRED!

Clearly you kept going on about it to try to provoke other users into an emotional response. Which is the very definition of Internet Troll.

That is incorrect. I added more information as an explanation of my point because some people thought it was a troll comment. It is/was not. It is 100% truth, there is a serious problem if the position is that the defense allowed so many points because they were so tired. Funny... the oppositions offense was on the field just as long and they seemed to be doing damn fine.

It is ever so more difficult to defend simply due to not knowing what routes a receiver will run; or the path a running back will take.

Oh, and it is not 100% truth. It is 100% opinion...

"It is ever so more difficult to defend simply due to not knowing what routes a receiver will run; or the path a running back will take."

which is the job of defense to figure out. no matter how long you have been on the field or how tired you are.

100% TRUTH.
