"I just took my eyes off the ball." - Weston Dressler, July 20, 2012
He was speaking about himself, but he might as well have been speaking for the entire team. The Saskatchewan Roughriders took their eye off the ball in Week 4.
We're speaking about the Saskatchewan’s 41-38 overtime loss in Calgary last Thursday which sent the Riders to its first defeat of the season.
In a fabulous football game on an unmatched summer evening in one of the CFL's greatest cities, there were five lead changes in the first half before the Riders pulled away in the second half. However with half a quarter to go in the fourth, the Riders took their eye off the ball. Up 17 points, they seemed to put it into cruise control and allowed the proud Stampeders to crawl their way back into the game.
