The injured Edmonton Eskimos cannot return to the lineup fast enough. The performance by the Edmonton Eskimos tonight was an embarrassment and deserves a grade of an F, quite possibly even a F-.
The Eskimos could only muster one single point in a 36-1 loss to the British Columbia Lions Friday night. A 59 yard punt single by Damon Duval.
The good news is the Eskimos are 5-3. That’s the only good news at the present time. Fred Stamps, Jason Barnes, and Greg Peach and Adarius Bowman simply cannot come back soon enough.
The Lions (2-6) had a field day with the Eskimos at Commonwealth Stadium tonight, and it opened in the first quarter. Travis Lulay showed strong consistency throughout the entire 60 minutes, recording a touchdown pass in each stanza. He found Akeem Foster for a 56 yard touchdown in the first quarter, touchdown passes to Arland Bruce III in the second and third quarters and Geroy Simon in the fourth quarter.
The good news is the Eskimos have a bye week. Now this is where General Manager Eric Tillman needs to make his money so the Eskimos don’t lose back-to-back games to the Calgary Stampeders in early September.
