Just got back in the door from the game in TO.
A few observations from tonights match;
-Casey is a gamer. His intensity was obvious to all way up in the stands. He was fighting hard to keep the offense rolling and put in a big effort. A couple of overthrown balls resulted in two less touchdowns.
-Our receivers look good. It took them a little while to find some open space but once they did they battled for every ball. Taller and stronger bunch with good hands. A few dropped balls but most of them were a bit off target. Overall, very encouraging.
-Moreno is a stud. Period. Great interception over the middle. Acted like a true defensive captain both on the field and on the sidelines.
-Setta's kicks into the corners inside the 10 yard lines were beautifully placed. This guy has to be locked up long term. Too good to let go.
-Tre Smith showed some good bursts of speed. Huge return and some solid runs from the backfield. I think he will stick.
-Richie Williams may have played himself off of the team. Lots of scrambling with no pocket presence. Threw a couple of bad balls and one tip was intercepted. No real composure at all. He was given a few sets and did nothing with them. Nice guy, but I believe he will be released.
-Quinton Porter showed good composure and made some really nice throws. He didn't rush himself and had good mobility scrambling for a TD. I think he will be our new number three.
-No reps for Chang. Is he in as one of our three QB's?
Defence only allowed 7 points after the first quarter was done. The DB's played hard to the ball. Five turnovers taken from the Argos.
-Bishop looked awful. Lots of overthrows and off target balls. D-line had him running.
Overall, it was a slow start but a great finish as the TiCats got stronger as the game went along. Personally, I am very encouraged by what I saw tonight and I believe anyone else who was at the game would be too.
Thanks to Frugal for posting the link for the free tickets. I took advantage and brought a friend to his first CFL game. A fun night out.
We look good folks!
