I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the great game played by Wayne Smith. He filled in for Jiminez at right tackle in the first quarter. His run and pass blocking was great. Normally when a starter goes down with an injury, the replacement is of lesser ability. Not so with Smith! Depending on how long Jimenez is out, Smith can be our guy at right tackle. This would give Marcel some flexibility with the ratio. Or he just might plug Simmons in there and allow Smith to return to his valuable backup duties. I love this team's depth!
Always have been a fan of Wayne's, Pat bad luck with injuries but was very disappointed when they traded him to Sask, is one of the the best blockers in the league. I sure hope he stays healthy. :thup:
8) Pat, I would go with Wayne Smith if Jimenez is not able to play this Friday.
Definitely not Simmons. He was taken to school by the DLineman in the Edmonton game, and was less than stellar.
That is the reason that Marcel put in Belton Johnson for the Sask. game. As was hoped for, Belton did an admirable job.
