First, lets start off with the negative and work our way into the positives. I'm gonna lay it on the line here for all to chew on. The Tiger Cats have looked terrible in the first two games of the season. And as a long time fan, it seriously turns my stomach to see things unfold the way they have. Admit it, we've all had gigantic expectations of the 'new look' Tiger Cats this season. Hell, I wanted to go running through a sprinkler when Ranek, Maas, and Holmes hopped on board. (to name a few good players)
Fact is, the CATS stink right now. They have faced to division rivals and have proven that they cannot compete at that level....YET. I watched as our terrible DB's got shanghai'd all night long. I watched as our lacklustre Defensive line couldn't hit the water if they fell out of a boat. I watched as our boys earned penalty after penalty instead of point after point.
Blame who you want to blame...but the fact is...this team needs to get their act in gear and in a hurry! Now for the positive part.
I still believe 100% that the TiCats CAN compete if not dominate the east. It's still early to reach for the panic button. Face it, did you really expect them to reach the Grey Cup this year? Come on now! It's a work in progress as Mr. Young said. I like the new offense and the different looks I saw last night. I think this could be a very potent offense, once THEY START CLICKING!
In conclusion, it's okay to feel disgusted right now. In fact, it's warranted. But don't go throwing any towels in just yet, because I can guarantee you, this team is going to be showing us some fantastic things. Hopefully in the very near future!
