Montreal Alouettes defensive back Tommie Campbell made a sorry excuse for an attempt to tackle Bombers’ star running back Andrew Harris.

Campbell grabs Harris’ jersey with one hand, spins him around and lets go. Winnipeg’s ball carrier broke free of the weak effort, resulting in a 74-yard catch and run play that led to a Bombers touchdown.

That drew quite reaction from CFL followers:

The leader of the Als defence, John Bowman was vocal about Harris’ positive drug test and subsequent suspension entering the matchup on Saturday afternoon. Harris wanted to make Montreal eat their words about him and the Canadian did so with one play.

Campbell is known as an elite cover man, but the tackling and effort has to be better from a player of his calibre.
