Jason Maas’ inexplicable decision costs Esks Grey Cup chance


As in-game decisions go, this was a head scratcher.

With under two minutes remaining, trailing by seven and facing third-and-four at the Calgary 13-yard line with, Edmonton Eskimos head coach Jason Mass elected to kick a 20-yard field goal instead of going for it on third down.

The kick was good and cut the Calgary lead to 32-28 but the Eskimos still needed a touchdown to win the game.

Calgary registered one first down, then kicked it back to Edmonton with less than 20 seconds remaining on the clock. The Eskimos fumbled the ball away and quarterback Mike Reilly never saw the field again.

Maas’ decision was quickly savaged on Twitter.
