Coming Up Short

The B.C. Lions fell short to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the season opener last night to a score of 28-24. Turnovers were a big problem for both teams last night where they combined for 15 turnovers. The Lions tied a club record of 9 sacks allowed for the third time in team history.

I don’t know which was worse last night. The O-line and backs not blocking or Buck Pierce not getting the ball out of his hands fast enough. It seemed like he was standing in the pocket for almost the entire game without getting the ball out of his hands. I’m not sure that I agreed with Wally Buono’s decision to bring in Jarious Jackson for the last play of the game. Sure Jarious is known for his long bombs, but coming into the game cold without any playing time to get loose. He was less effective and the ball wobbled all the way into the Riders hands.

Last night was a night to forget that’s for sure.
