OK, that's a good start.
Burris definitely had to be included as he went 28/38 for 355 yards, 4 TD passes, no INTs. If Rider fans were trying to get him off his game by taunting him, it didn't work. And as Burris was sacked only once, the O line perhaps should also get some credit.
It was another good game by the Williamses. Chris catches 9 passes for 100+ rec. yards, and Rey recovered that fumble as Boudreaux took him down. Boudreaux's numbers sure look good with two sacks and a forced fumble.
Jones caught seven passes for 65 yards, and had two TDs, including that one on the 3rd and goal gamble which was a very interesting play call. He did show why I was not too worried about Grant sitting this one out.
It's interesting that you also mention Bartel, but I won't disagree with you there. His punts seem to keep looking better.
Smith seems to have been getting the job done, and it was good to see him get that pick.
It was also good to see Stala get that first TD.
I did like what I saw from Walker, except for when he allowed himself to get pushed out of bounds to stop the clock when time had to be killed. But as his blocking improves, will it soon be time to send Cobourne back to his insurance sales job?
Wasn't there all this talk earlier this year about the Riders not turning the ball over? Well, the Riders turned it over three times. We turned it over zero times.
With this win, the Ticats can definitely put that loss in week one behind them. And they showed that they can win away from IWS, and in a stadium where no team got a win before this year, and a stadium where the Ticats have not won since 2000. It was a great night for an exorcism.
