A good story from Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette.
Trashes the Als but is very complimentry of the Cats.[url=http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Alouettes+worse+than+think/6973344/story.html]http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/A ... story.html[/url]
[b]Do you get the sense this is about to turn ugly for the Als? There are plenty of games remaining and, at 2-2, Montreal remains in a threeway tie atop the East Division standings. So there's parity, for now, but the cream will eventually rise. And it looks like the Als' refrigerator is stocked with too much sour milk following this 39-24 defeat.
The coverage is pathetic and the tackling too shoddy. Is Hamilton head coach George Cortez that much smarter than Marc Trestman, his Montreal counterpart? Has Henry Burris suddenly become perfect?
The Tiger-Cats' offence hummed like a well-oiled machine on Saturday, especially in the first half. Only once were they forced to punt. But it was more than that. Hamilton was imaginative and diversified on offence.
Burris? He completed 27 of 30 passes for 360 yards, exploiting the Als' defence with four touchdowns. Do the math. Burris completed 90 per cent of his throws, his quarterback efficiency rating was a mindboggling 156.3 - two points short of perfection.[/b]
