I know it's a little early for this one, but I thought I might just as well get in under way.
The Als have showed us some character over the last 4 games so I will allow myself some optimism. To be a great team, you have to beat the best. Arguably, the Lions enjoyed that title going back to their amazing finish last season. They will no doubt be preparing for us next Saturday, as we will for them. I'm not sure whether Geroy Simon will be back or not.
I hope that Jamel will be back, or, even better, both J Rich and London. I must say that the 2nd-stringers racheted up their game, as they had to. Deslauriers had some key grabs as well. All I ask of the D is to get that one extra stop, which they indeed got last game.
The next game may be more of the same. I say that AC has to go to some of the same guys to allow SJ (and J Rich, I hope!) to manoeuvre into space. Whitaker has to have a great game as well.
On D, the key to the W, IMO, was that they kept Lulay running all game. While hurried throws don't always make for interesting statistics, they are vital to gaining Ws. We have to do that again on Saturday!
We still have half a season to go, and anything can happen in the CFL, so I won't speculate on how we finish, the EF, or the GC. First things first - let's get a W on Saturday! What Duke Snider used to say about baseball is also true of football. The ones you win in April, you don't have to worry about in September. So, a let's get a W on Saturday!
Go Als go!
