[quote]The issue I have is that Stringer was lights on right then, had his stroke going and was our only offense really. Truth be told, he should have been 4 of 4 from 3 at that point. CJJ takes him out.
The score stays around 21-18, 21-20 for about 4 minutes afterwards. In the 2nd half, Stringe...

The team looked tired. You can't keep running and pressing with a 6 man rotation when the other team is throwing 10 guys against you.

[quote]As a former resident of B.C, I'm really happy that Jarrett signed with the Lions.
The CFL is a game of smaller guys, speed & bigger field, only three downs, much faster and to me a funner game. NFL is less about finesse, more about muscle and weight.
