Is there a point in which Coach Chamblin should stop calling the defense and focus on coaching the team?
If a coach is a hands-on type of guy, and is going to be stringent about how certain aspects of the team should operate, then it’s better for everyone if that coach handles the play-calling duties. It may make that coach the target when things go wrong, but any coach who wants to be in that position knows the direct ramifications. The only time a red-flag should be thrown, is if a coach wants to call 2 out of the 3 phases of the game. That is far too much for anyone to take on.
What’s the deal with Getzlaf this year?
Second week in a row with no pass rush. A good DB can only cover for so long, are different Dline stunts required?
Having said that, the likelihood of a “win” for a lineman skyrockets if a defense rushes at least four defenders, and even though it wasn’t a HUGE change in percentages, the Riders did start rushing 4 defensive linemen more against the BC Lions. If there was some success on film (while rushing 4) hopefully Coach Chamblin continues to let Mike Sinclair cuts his guys loose a little more often.
I thought I heard a Brenden Taman interview where he stated that he wanted Offensive PI to be reviewable play? Is that true? And what does he mean?
Does anybody blame guys on the Oline for taking 2 TDs off the board in the last 2 games? Those hurt.
What are your thoughts about not calling a Time Out on the BC field goal attempt in regulation time, and then taking a knee?
As for taking a knee at the end of the fourth, there’s a lot of “what-ifs” that go into that debate. What-if the Riders get a huge play (or two) through the air to set themselves up for a FG? OR
What-if Glenn throws a pick and it’s returned with enough time left for BC to kick another FG?
The Riders could have ended up in a number of scenario’s there, some AWESOME, and some BAD. There’s probably a mix of guys that wanted to play the final seconds, and probably some that are more focused on the fact that the team lost an 11pt lead. I actually don’t know what I would have done if I’m being completely honest with you. I do know that it’s really easy for people to jump on an opinion once the cards have been played.
Why was Bighill not called for a helmet to helmet hit on Brett Smith on the crucial 3rd and inches call?
Realistically, can fans influence the league to reassess the new rules?

Is there some dissention within the ranks of the team, and assuming that that’s happening, what’s the difference if the rocks that are being thrown from a distance are as valid as the questions within the locker room?
