Chris Jones has been in charge of the Saskatchewan Roughriders for 42 regular season football games, dating back to 2016.
In that time the team has lost 24 regular season contests.
On the heels of Saturday’s loss to Calgary, some members of Rider Nation are furious.
Offensive co-ordinator Stephen McAdoo seems to be the biggest target of criticism, along with Chris Jones.
It’s how fans here roll. It doesn’t matter if it’s a loss to the hapless Alouettes, or the undefeated Stampeders, fans hate losing.
I love the passion, but I would remind fans of this: in Ottawa’s march to the 2016 Grey Cup, the RedBlacks also had 24 regular season losses 42 games in to their existence.
Winning a division title and getting a first round bye come playoff time is a bonus.
Finishing second and hosting a semi-final game is a plus — and something the Riders could still do. However, the ultimate goal is getting to the Grey Cup, and there is still a lot of football left.
