I agree with Chris Jones.
A short turn around time is a good thing for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
While trying to learn from a disheartening loss, it’s important for the team to look ahead even though the fans won’t.
Discipline issues (mainly with Duron Carter), a 45% completion percentage, 60 yards in rushing and a poor defensive showing led to this Rider team giving Montreal its first win in nearly a year.
To make matters worse it was a home field loss to an eastern opponent.
Brandon Bridge will start Thursday as the Riders host Hamilton. The leash may be short now that David Watford has a little CFL time under his belt. It should be.
Watford didn’t look that out of place, and it’s important for Chris Jones to empower Bridge while doing everything he can to get a win against the Tiger-Cats in two days time. It was ugly at Mosaic Stadium on Saturday.
The CFL’s most intense fans are still seething. The best strategy for the team in dealing with Saturday’s loss to Montreal is to have a short memory.
