During the team's pre-game warm up versus the Eskies I went down to the field and shouted out "Hey Delvin!", he turned his head to listen and I shouted out twice "this is your game tonight, not his!" (pointing to Bowman on the other side of midfield). Man he loved it! I got an enthusiastic thumbs up and a few hand claps.
This guy is THE shut down DB in the CFL. He is tough, physical and has great range. He always faces the opposition's best... I can't wait to see him take down The Fumblin' Hawiian! :thup:
Look at the film. I don't think any of us have a better short-side combo than Hamilton does with (Delvin) Breaux and (Brandon) Stewart. They are long and physical and tough for us to play against. You guys might not vote them all-stars, but a lot of offensive co-ordinators would"
Point well made. Consider though that, sometimes the “dropsies” are the result of a physical approach by the DBs and having to battle through tight, well played coverage. A receiver being in fear of a big hit or a late break on the ball may tighten up or lose focus just enough to misplay the pass. While I agree that all pro receivers should catch the type of passes that were dropped in those games, but I’m not ready to concede that the D has nothing to do with those drops.
Breaux, Stewart, Stevens and Butler should be ball hawks tonight against Toronto, Ray loves to pass and shutting down the passing game will be a key to victory against the Argo's plus a great rush from our front Defensive Lineman and LB's, Let's Rush the Heck out of Ray, put him on his butt, stop any rush game and pick off a few passes.
