 Chapdelaine says odds of Jonathon Mincy (concussion) playing on Wednesday night are "50/50" right now #Alouettes

With that quote from Chaps, why would the Als and or Mincy even take th risk of playing this Wednesday.
Sure it would be a big addition, but another week might be what the doctor orders.

Unless they are just playing "mind games" with the Coommunist-AfricanAmericans

STATS


-On offense, the Als are tied for 1st in yards per play (7.1) and yards per 1st down play (7.0).  Unfortunately, they also average the fewest number of plays per game.

-Team runs the most in the CFL (40%) and tops the league in rushing yards per game, attempts, yards per rush, and most 20+ yard rushes.

-Considering how often the team runs, it should be no surprise the Als are last in passing yards per game and pass attempts per game.

-On defense, the Als are last in plays per game, rushing attempts per game, and passing attempts per game, completions per game, and 1st downs per game.

-While the team is 1st in points allowed per game, they are close to a 3-way tie for offensive points allowed per game.

-In the CFL this year there have been zero offensive touchdowns when a sack happens during a drive.  That stat benefits the offense as they have given up the fewest sacks (2).  On the other hand, they are still last in sacks made (3).

-Als are the most penalized team averaging 11.  Those penalties have cost the team a league high 104 yards per game.

As per  the Als Position Chasrt, available on REDBLACKS site, some moves were made by the Als:

Int. DB Don Unamba is shown nowhere; has probably been released. This move confirms that Int. DB Jonathan Mincy will start.

Int. DT Ray Drew has been added to active roster from 1 game injured list. Will most probably be a healthy scratch tomorrow,unless it's Jalen Rodgers. The other healthy scratch will be Int. RB Tyrell Sutton.

Int. QB's Antonio Pipkin and Matthew Shiltz have been released/moved from 1 game injured list and added to practice roster.

On the 1 game injured list only Int. QB Drew Willy remains.

Herb confirming what Richard wrote about Unamba who I thought did a very good job. Obviously means Mincy will be dressing.

Herb Zurkowsky? @HerbZurkowsky1  51s51 seconds ago

 #AlsMTL have released CB Donald Unamba

 Herb Zurkowsky? @HerbZurkowsky1  47m47 minutes ago

It appears boundary CB Jonathon Mincy will return to the #AlsMTL starting roster vs. @REDBLACKS after missing two games with a concussion.
I`m not always right, I just think I am.

Other moves made:

Nat.WR Malcolm Carter removed from practice roster.
Nat. DT Fabion Foote transferred from 1 game injured list to practice roster.

Probably returning to school.

I`m looking forward to the day when we can go into an Als game feeling fully confident of a victory. These days it`s mainly wishing, hoping and praying.

The Redblacks have a potent offense that we will have to somewhat hold in check. However they have given up a lot of points defensively and we have to take advantage.

I just don`t want to see the Als defeat themselves with untimely penalties or interceptions. Let`s put up a good fight and let the chips fall where they may.

RichardVeilleux

I agree with you,Sheldon, no matter which team the Als play, we are never "fully confident" that they will win. It will be tough tonight. The Als will have to win the possession time, play almost error free and reduce their penalties. I foresee that we will be on the edge all night long.-reminds me of a song-

I know that it is a broken record from me, but the Als main weakness is the defensive line,particularly the Nat. DT's; if no pressure on Harris he will have fun all night and complete long passes.

Richard I`m kind of thinking you may get your wish with Drew. Why would they add him to the roster if they didn`t have some plan in mind? He could easily replace Rogers or McLennan on the game day roster, but the challenge is how to get him on the field and still have the required 3 Nationals on defense.

Perhaps by taking out on certain packages an International DB and replacing with Wright or Termansen.

idealsheldon

I guess I was wrong. Herb saying Drew has been scratched along with Sutton.

Before the decision I will say STUPID CHALLENGE

GHT120

This game is hopefully put-up or pack-up time for Rutley.
Although Sutton has been much more productive the last couple of years there ***might*** have been some doubt that the issue was that BR was more dependent on the O-Line because he is less of a power back.  Should be no issues tonight.  O-Line is better than the last couple of years, both teams are on a short week and it is stinking hot today in Ottawa (33 C Humidex at the moment) which should favour the O-lines as the game goes on.
