Winnipeg will want to make some defensive adjustments after that fiasco last week in Montreal. I expect them to come out aggressively after Dane. If our defence can keep the Streveler/Harris run game in check then we win a close low scoring game.
So far this running backs committee hasn't really hurt us. If after 18 games we add up all the yards of everybody that received a handoff this year and it totals over a 1000 yards, then I think we had a decent ground game.
Winnipeg gives up a league low 67 yards per game rushing. Probably not the best team to try and pound the ground against. Sutton will add to the pass block and hopefully keep Evans on his feet. Maybe we'll get some rush yards from our untraditional run plays. If Evans can stay on his feet we should be able to exploit their DBs.
I'm thinking yer wrong on this E-Pat . I'm counting 8 Cdn starters listed on the chart , so one over the minimum of seven required . Which means that Sutton can be substituted freely in and out without any effect on the ratio . The chart is also listing Coombs as an import for whatever reason instead of a Canadian . The reserve will most likely be barring any unforeseen circumstances in pregame warm-ups once again OT - Kevin Palmer .
Bombers blew big lead last week and will be pissed. Cats blew a lead but came back to win. We will have a let down; we have not been blown out all year. When’s last season we did not get blown out??
Plus O’Shea will want some revenge from the last game.
Bombers - 30
Cats - 23
(Based on the cats play this year, this is considered a blowout - hope I am wrong and we win)
That's my take on it too. Larks exploited their secondary in that comeback last week and we certainly have players with the wheels to do that too (Addison, Banks) Of course Adams Jr is more of a scrambler than Evans but there have been some recent games when Dane looked quite "Masoli-like" with his scrambling out of the pocket to make plays.
Looking for a nice birthday present (win) from the Ticats tomorrow night!
