You can say whatever you want. That is not the way a team wants to come out of the gate. After claiming they are the team to beat in the CFL...It may blow over or it may leave scarres. We shall see. Getting Edmonton next is a good thing.
I am not saying they should be taken lightly but a team with 70 percent new personnel, a rookie coach and a brand new 3-4 defense is probably as good as your gonna get and playing on the road will alleviate some of that pressure I think.
That could be it as well. He seemed to walk with a bit of a limp for parts of the game. That would also explain why he didn't scramble on the opportunity to gain large amounts of yardage came up, particularly immediately before his final interception throw.
A few random thoughts and extra tidbits from last night's debacle, er, Ticat game.
this is the third straight opening game under head coach Marcel Bellefeuille where the team has come out and laid an egg against a team they were supposed to beat. In 09, they lost at home to the Bart Andrus Argos (who finished 3-15). Last year, they lost on the road to the Bombers (who finished 4-14.)
I asked Bellefeuille about their slow starts this week and his response, essentially, was different year, different team.
I think they never should of pulled him in the first place, he did throw three interceptions but we were a score behind. Glenn has been there before and I would of feel more confident in the stands with Glenn at the helm. This will provide distractions that our locker room doesn't need. It was week one and the defenses are always ahead of the game. Only one team surpassed 29 points so far. If Calvillo threw 3 picks are you taking him out of the game, we have to have faith in our quarterback.
