I have a strong gut feeling that the Ottawa Redblacks will have an inspired effort at home in Week 8. I decided to take them in my CFL Pick'em, they really need to stop this four game losing streak !
Tonight, the Ticats will be playing their 4th game in 16 days!
Funny this article doesn't mention the absence of Speedy Bee, seems to me to be a major factor for Hamilton.
Well he's been absent all year. Old news I guess.
He wasn't a major factor in the games before his injury.
True 'nuff, but his mere presence is always a concern for any secondary, you never know when he'll break out of his slump. Can't see his whole year being like the first few games.
Since 1950, Hamilton is 102-77 against Ottawa teams (45-42 for games in Ottawa).
Last season, Hamilton won both games vs Ottawa, outscoring them 54-19 combined.
None of this looks good for the home team tonight, but I'll be there under the North Side roof cheering them on in the rain.
The Redblacks QB Davis has a career 4-8 record. Hamilton's young Watford is 1-0.
Hamilton's turnover ratio this season is +2. Ottawa's is -9. Both teams have a negative sack differential, Hamilton at -12 and Ottawa at -9.
Enjoy your game tonight, I suspect Hamilton will win, but this is football....... expect the unexpected........now where did I hear that statement before?? Maybe I'll ask my Big Brother.
I am pulling for Ottawa against anyone except Toronto.
man does this team suck
I'm surprised even those 100 fans showed up.
New GM coming.
This didn’t age well..
Yiikes !!! Brutal!
Ticats again not impressive either.
The playing conditions for both teams were brutal - I'm surprised that more player didn't get hurt because of the rain. While a Cat fan, I was not impressed by their play - but it was their 4th game in 16 days so they really had to be tired. Regardless, they won - Oskee - wee - wee!
Congratulations to Hamilton in their victory tonight.
Rain doesn't hurt.
Watched this on PVR and I can't help but be discouraged for the future of our league when this is the kind of display we're putting on. I know it was raining but that was the farthest thing from entertaining as I can think of.
Can Dominique Davis throw a pass more than 5 yards that is not out of bounds.
This is a sure fire way to kill what was once a great team to follow and go to games to cheer for.
I actually thought they should abolish the punt after so many 2 and outs. I mean if there was a turnover on downs, the other team's offense wasn't going anywhere anyways.
Zero points for the offense, 2 hurt QB, oh boy. I actually feel sorry for LaPolice,
I am truly convinced after watching this lousy game in Week 8. The Ottawa Redblacks will not win another game this season 1-13 for the 2021 season. Although the Cats won 24-7, they were unimpressive in this rain soaked game in the nations capitol.
