You mean Sean Millington was impressive. Doug Nussmeir (sp?) scrambled
around a lot and played with some enthusiasm, but his passes were very
poorly thrown. There was one intended for Don Blair down the seam that
was at least six feet over his head. What happened at the end of the game
was that the Calgary defense played soft (for good reason) allowing
Millington to make some runs off screen passes. Earlier in the game,
these same plays were going nowhere. Also, B.C. managed a touchdown off a
fumble by Marvin Coleman. This game was men against boys Marc, and the
events of the last nine minutes should not be the cause of any false
optimism by the Lions, or their fans.
