Yikes... I'm sorry for the awful news Hamilton fans, its not good for the league with star pivots go down. It just isn't good for the game, but this is football, not hockey, not soccer, not anything else... It's next man up because everyone else has injuries somewhere and their next man is contributing. As an Esks fan, we had to witness Matt Nichols bake cupcakes till we traded him. Look where we are... 8-4. (6-4 before Reilly's first start since Week 1). I have faith Hamilton will rally around Matthews now. Do I pick Hamilton as favorites to win it all? No. I would put them 3rd behind Edmonton and Calgary now. (Both teams are almost inseparable for my first choice, but if I had to choose, it would be Edmonton not because of bias, but because our team just looks better... and yeah, maybe a tiny bit of bias haha).
I have faith in Hamilton to make the East final (by bye week or through a 2nd or 3rd place finish) at the least. Looking forward to seeing Collaros back next season, he's top 3 for sure. :thup:
