I know all the talk is how our offense sucks compared to BC and how we haven't played that new-look BC team.. but..
- The second win against BC was between 24-11 and 36-1 BC wins. Does that mean we have played the new Lions team? Not necessarily, but it's some evidence that they were already on the right track when we beat them.
- Even though BC was off to just a 2-5 start, Travis Lulay was averaging ~290 passing yards per game in the five games against teams other than the Bombers. Against Winnipeg, he threw for 298 yards in two games. We already know how our defense was able to stop Geroy and Bruce. Ironically.. I wonder - if Suber didn't completely shut down Bruce in Week 1, would he have found his game in Hamilton and not be in BC right now? It's funny how things work.
- BC's offense averaged ~369 yards per game during the regular season. Our offense, in the seven games with Chris Garrett at RB, is averaging ~377 yards per game.
Our offense isn't build to rack up points, it's built to rack up time of possession. Though it sure isn't dominant, when our offense plays well, the other team doesn't see the ball often, and that allows our defense to be well rested when it does have to get out there. The Hamilton game was a perfect example of that. Yeah, we only scored 19 points, but we had the ball for 39 minutes. It may have been 19 points, but it looked pretty dominant while watching it. Garrett has been such a huge revelation for us.
Gonna be a long week.. let's send Doug Brown and Canad Inns Stadium out the right way!
