Great article, I like the enthusiasm

There's a lot of confident quotes from players lately.
A large part of the credit should got to MB, Marshall and football ops. When players feel like they're being led properly , given a chance to succeed and feel a part of something strong it breeds confidence and thus quotes like this.

I heard these same predictions 2 years ago, it's nothing new, every team in the league thinks they're going to the Grey Cup right now.

No better time than the present to have a positive attitude going into the season.
CATS eat em raw!

The stuff some Hamilton players are saying is almost bulletin board material .Confident bordering on cocky. So rare in these parts. I ,for one , welcome it.

Could not agree more Zontar

I laughed when I read that, but it's a good point :thup: :thup:

Sure. But some have more confidence they can back it up. And that's where this team is at right now - it's a good thing.
