While RedBlacks fans recover from Sunday’s Grey Cup win and Tuesday’s Grey Cup parade, Stampeder fans will second guess a fourth quarter, 2nd and goal call for a long time.
Why a coaching staff would allow a less experienced quarterback like Andrew Buckley to run a pass play in that situation will forever be a Grey Cup mystery.
Jerome Messam, who was averaging 4.4 yards per carry in the ball game and had a season average of 5.8 yards per carry in the regular season, was ready.
Stampeders receiver Marquay McDaniel had a different take on the Calgary loss: he couldn’t explain why the RedBlacks were faster and more physical in the Grey Cup game.
McDaniel was confused as to why his team didn’t leave it all out on the field. Lost in the fourth quarter dramatics is the fact that 8-9 and 1 Ottawa jumped out to a 27-7 lead over 15-2 and 1 Calgary in the ball game.
That wasn’t supposed to happen.
In many ways, McDaniel’s questions are more relevant than the one about a fourth quarter play call.
