The team that I want the Leos to beat, each year, are the Eskimos even more than the Stampeders. I know we played Edmonton tough last year but this year they have Ricky Ray back and that makes the Edmonton game more intriguing.
I remember the first game Ricky Ray played against our Leos. Matt Dunigan was setting up the game and said "raw rookie Ricky Ray" will be in tough against the future Hall of Famer Damon Allan. Well, Allan played lousy and "raw rookie Ricky Ray" kicked our butts.
However Ricky Ray will be playing a different Leos team that the one that he played against in his previous stint with Edmonton. The Leos have more weapons on offence and a much improved defence. But that doesn't mean Edmonton won't be tough. Ray has an excellent recieving corps and their punt returner leads the league at present. The Eskimos also upgraded this year with the signings of Kelly Wiltshire, Joe Monford, Scott, and Davis Sanchez (who is dealing with a pulled hamstring at present)
The Leos offence finally has the variety of plays (running game-misdirection, counters, sweeps, off tackle traps) and passing game(screens, dumps, hitch screens, short, intermediate, and long throws) to keep Edmonton's defence off balance.
Looking for your thoughts on the game!!
