    Discussion Esks @ Riders - Regular Season Finale GDT

    Fajardo is confirmed out of this game. Definitely adds an interesting wrinkle to the Western race.

    Re: Esks @ Riders - Regular Season Finale GDT

    Interesting... during the Mtl-Ott game last night, Chris Cuthbert was asserting that he was back in, after being declared out earlier in the day.

    Wonder what the issue is, and if it might be more serious than they're letting on.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Esks have a shot at taking this one, but it'll require the defense rising to the occasion and shutting down the Riders offense. Kilgore will have to manage the game well and outplay Harker. GO ESKS

    Re: Esks @ Riders - Regular Season Finale GDT

    Question is, do the Esks really care to throw everything in? With Harris, Ellingson and others sitting, and a global player starting at slot, they seem to be treating it as an extended scrimmage.

    I just don't see the remaining Esks rising to this occasion. They're looking ahead to next week.

    Hope I'm wrong about that... but I don't want any injuries either.

    The backups will play hard and try to make names for themselves. Hopefully...

    CC has been starting to lose it, age gets us all eventually (he and Forde also didn’t see the obvious contact to Harris’s shoulder making him down at the 1 last night).

    The Riders said a decision wouldn’t be made until today, CC was wrong.

    I’ve never liked Cuthbert.

    Big Al “the Fixer” is the ref, just in case the Esks get any funny ideas about wrecking the Riders 1st place finish.

    I hope we just run the ball down their throat. Especially with Moncrief out...

    I honestly hate the strategy of sitting everyone and yes I know injuries/fatigue but losing today we'll have 8 wins on the season that's not exactly going into the playoffs with momentum if we had at least gone out and won this game we'd have a small bit of momentum going into the playoffs this to me defines the esks over the last few years, doing the bare minimum

    For the Esks sake, hopefully today is Kilgores final playing time as an Esk.

    Re: Esks @ Riders - Regular Season Finale GDT

    Both Cooper and Kilgore trying to make something out of nothing. Cooper should have taken the hole that was created for him instead of dancing. Kilgore should not have thrown that ball (at least not the way he did).

    That wasn’t a horse collar tackle.

    Kilgore is crap, he is heading back to retirement next year.

    Maas won’t but it’s time to see what we have in Troy Williams.

    We don’t need 3 more quarters to prove how terrible Kilgore is.

    I wonder if sitting those guys has something to do with the salary cap, which we've supposedly been up against all season.

    I think it was a horrible decision to sit our starters. Football is a game about momentum.

    Santos Knox, wow!

    Now we can get a field goal as long as Kilgore doesn’t do anything stupid.

    Great job by the D to stuff them on consecutive short yardage plays.

    They even had to overcome a, shall we say, overly generous spot on the 2nd down play.

    Kilgore sucks, worst QB in Eskimo history.

    But wasn’t that a weak horse collar tackle?

    So much for that 3rd-and-1 stop.

    I guess it's been firmly demonstrated by now that we do not have a backup QB.

    I believe someone has to be pulled down by the horse collar for a horse collar penalty to be called...

    That was pretty weak when someone laying a hand on you can bring you down. Too early to call for Williams?
