Brendan McGuire Leaves News Talk Radio

This week, we're saying farewell to a member of the News Talk team, and we thought you should know the whole story.

Brendan McGuire is leaving News Talk Radio to pursue educational goals which reach far beyond the borders of radio.

Don't Worry, That's The Coaches Job

A 28 point loss on the eve of the playoffs should be of concern.....to the coaches, mostly Kent Austin. Don't panic Rider Nation!! Austin has Grey Cup rings, as a player and as an an offensive coordinator. He has seen first hand what it takes to win. Even though he is a rookie head coach, there is probably no better coach in this league to rally the troops after what he saw Saturday then Austin.

It's A Done Deal

What a Friday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Riders are in, and I wouldn't have it any other way.  

Good On The Riders

It's great to see Eric Tillman and Kent Austin hold the CFL accountable for some of the events from Sunday. To throw flags and eject players with very little explanation is not acceptable. George Black (head of CFL officiating) is one of the most honorable men I talk to on a semi-regular basis. He has always been the first to admit officials mistakes. This adversity that the officials face under the Rider watch will only make them better down the road.

Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Perhaps the most impressive part of Monday's Roughrider win, was the drive following the Marcus Howell touchdown return. To have D.J. Flick make a huge catch, and to have Kerry Joseph run one in, right after the Riders gave up a score on special teams was huge.

Stop Reynolds, Win Ball Game.

Let's look at some facts:

Calgary doesn't have their starting quarterback in, the Riders get veteran defensive back Eddie Davis back.

The Stampeders are losing, Saskatchewan has momentum after a win over Montreal.

The Stampeders have a new defensive co-ordinator running the show, the Riders have Andy Fantuz playing some terrific football.

B.C. Breakdown

There is plenty of blame to go around on the heels of Saturday's loss. There is no doubt that defensive back Tristian Clovis should not have allowed Geroy Simon to be that wide open in the final minute of a football game. However, this Rider team did have a 22-8 lead in the first half. 

Sean Lucas should have put this game away with an interception return for a touchdown in the second half.

On more than one occasion Kerry Joseph missed open receivers.

What was that?

How does that old Johnny Cash song go? "Well, I woke up Sunday morning with no way to hold my head that didn't hurt." That's how the Rider nation must be feeling after Saturday's 44-22 loss to the Calgary Stampeders.

The Morning After

Let's get the officials controversy out of the way first. Yes, the men in stripes screwed up on calls on throws to D.J. Flick and Andy Fantuz. The Riders still would not have won this football game.

All week long I said that Charles Roberts would be a threat. He was absent by Charles Roberts' standards on Labor Day, but really helped the Bombers set the tone in the first half.

Here is a visit Shack, Gregger, and I had with TSN's Danny McManus on the "Shack In The Morning" show. Danny is a great TSN teammate of mine. He never gives away too many secrets. Let's just say we had some fun on Labor Day.
