- Marshall (I know they were iffy on if he would play or not. Pulling him off the 6 with only 1 game left seems to indicate good cap shape, especially as Zach got pulled as well)
- Francis (will be nice to have him back on ST)
- Awachie (guessing he sits)
- JSJ (finally)
- Messam (yeah)
- Doughlin (onto the 6)
- Gardner (c'mon JSJ)
- Holley. IMO he may be at risk. I think one of he or Evans had to sit with Carter flipping to O, and both of them have had a case of poor routes and/or drops the past couple of weeks.
Collaros listed as started , for what it is worth.
Marshall at corner, Carter at SB and leaving Evans outside.
Well it'll be like watching a 'new team'.
I would hope to see a more diverse, unpredictable offense this game!!!!!!!!!!

There are actually a few new sets that Macadoo has been building on for a few games that I find rather interesting. They also tucked some stuff away from early in the season that we will see again some time. Also...having JSJ allows for some whole new formation looks with TEs 0
Yes I'm thinking we'll see a very different looking Rider Team; as will the Esks,,
Could prove to be a very exciting win on the road.
IF ZC can stay for the full game and not get side-swiped. :-X
Found a depth chart in the link above.
They are also listed here:
Yes, I understand that but it isn't up/or posted as yet. Why I wonder?
Weird.. .I pulled it up yesterday.
Other than now having no Messam or MonCrief...nice looking roster. Even that said...SAM was not a concern last week
Secondary needs to step up in this one huge. Will be the best group they likely face all year
Well that was sad…on so many levels ?. Let another one slip away.
Brutal. It was a high quality game by both teams. In my opinion, there should have been an 9 point swing in that game. Seven (got 2 back with the safety) were taken off the board by a questionable overturn, and four were added for Edmonton in the first quarter when their back's forward motion is clearly stopped at the five but he's given the two or three yard line and a first down.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda. Hopefully they can start winning again.
The morning after:
After sleeping on it, it was a pretty good game. O definitely had a more positive feel with ZC in despite some of the play calls (although some executed better), D was stellar again, despite a couple brain pharts.
Online still a little porous, too many inopportune penalties, amateur officiating (can’t control that). Oh yeah, and the roster card screwup ?
Agreed last nights game was pretty good. The offense was definitely looking better and ZC played well (given). I do think ZC needs to stop "telegraphing" his throw direction so much.
So there's definite improvement but not enough to beat a Western Division Foe.
And after the "By week" it doesn't get easier.
Long way to go boys :-\
I thought it was a great game.
Reilly is so impressive. He had heat on him all night...took as many sacks in 1 game as all season. Riders eventually had to spy him because he was simply fine with it...didnt phase him. Honestly...Zach was cool with pressure to. Took it in stride and never panicked.
Sewell was a beast for them in short yardage. He is a game changer there and dictates the O has to go right. Huge. Put a fricken fullback and a TE though and drive 250lb at the line. Hell...direct snap it.
I know lots won't like the O...i did. I don't mind underneath stuff as long as they go deep some to keep the d honest. When they started that things opened up. That is encouraging moving forward IMO
Shot themselves in the foot some.....but honestly...imo this was a situation where the better team simply didn't win. It happens.
I don't want to harp on refs. They are human. It goes both ways. However.. that spot on the first drive was unacceptable. Eye in the sky 100% needs to catch that
I agree to a certain extent. May be they miss a holding call or choose not to throw the flag on a close pi. However there was a 9 point swing in that game because of questionable officiating... 4 on Edmontons first drive and 5 on the called back td on the very questionable camera angle from the end zone on the qb sneak.
Not sure it's good for the league to have the outcome of the game, especially a divisional game, decided by blatant missed calls
I agreed with the td being reversed. I felt he looked well short...
There were a few things in this one though...like a superflex and a throst slash and a fee spots and some pushoffs and bad holds not called
The worst team on the field was the officials...and I mean both ways. They had a poor night
I agree, now that the defence seems solids,maybe it’s time to put more attention to the offence.
To be a "Top Team" in the CFL you don't "almost win the game" you Win It!

I'm sure Collaros had some rust.
This team will only get better if they stay healthy.
Messam is a huge loss tho.
