Marquay McDaniel just threw his teammate under the Grey Cup bus.
In the moments after their devastating loss to the Toronto Argonauts in Sunday’s championship game, the veteran Calgary receiver blamed the loss on teammate Kamar Jorden’s fumble.
Leading by eight with just over five minutes to play and already on the Toronto seven yard line, quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell completed a short pass to Jorden who was promptly stripped by Argo defender Jermaine Gabriel. Cassius Vaughn scooped it up and returned 109 yards for a touchdown
A two-point conversion by Declan Cross tied the game and the Stamps lost after a Toronto field goal with under a minute to go and a Mitchell interception in the end zone.
But McDaniel teed off on Jorden’s miscue.
“It’s a stupid play to be real. I mean shit, we were inside the 15 up eight with a chance to at least get a field goal. What are you doing? We talked all game about putting two hands on the ball. What are you doing? It’s a stupid play,” McDaniel said. “You can talk all you want about doing this, doing that,. It’s a dumb play. Stupid football loses games.”
It will be interesting to see how his teammates react to his comments, particularly after watching film of Vaughn’s return. It shows McDaniel seeming to give up on the play as Vaughn crosses the 20-yard line on his way to the end zone.
