Lulay, Lions want to solve grass-eating habits

Travis Lulay's not one to lay blame but if he wants to point fingers at the offensive line, he's not alone.

The Lions quarterback was pressured all game Saturday – or the three quarters plus he played in - and forced to scramble and take multiple shots by Calgary defenders in a 27-22 loss to the Stampeders at Empire Field.

Pair that with his own inadequacy and Lulay gave B.C. fans his best impression of Roberto Luongo by getting pulled in favour of Jarious Jackson.

There's no excuses, but there's always a reason.

Although the overall effort by B.C. quarterbacks this season is far from inspiring, turning things around is that much harder with a lack of time, space, and protection.

The O-Line allowed five sacks (four on Lulay and one on Jackson) and have yet to give coach Wally Buono a reason not to make a drastic change with the five-man unit.

The problem also includes missed blocks by fullback Jamall Lee and even trickles down to the running game, which mustered only 58 yards.

With the Lions facing a short week, changes might have to wait until after Thursday's game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

And barring a drastic improvement by the offensive line, the starting quarterback - whether it be Lulay, Jackson, or Casey Printers - will be walking into a nightmare.

As if trying to snap a five-game losing skid in Rider Nation wasn't tough enough.
