This is a huge game for the Eskimos. I know some people don’t like the expression “must win game,” but this is definitely a must win for the Eskimos. A loss would pretty much end their season.
With the way this team is playing right now, I can see them finishing 8-10 with losses in Toronto, in Calgary, and in B.C. If they lose tonight, that record changes to 7-11. Game over.
Their only chance of making the playoffs would be if Winnipeg completely falls apart, but seeing as how Winnipeg has been playing decent football the last two weeks, I just don’t see that happening. So tonight’s game is a definite must win.
The offence needs to get it together. Strasser needs to get the QB and the receivers on the same page. The running game appears to be fine. It’s all on the passing game… which just sounds incredibly weird to say.
The defence is playing OK. The D-Line will need to step up and knock Buck Pierce around.
It should be an interesting game. Ordinarily, I’d feel fairly confident with the game being at home, but seeing as the Eskimos aren’t protecting the home field this season… I have a bottle of rum nearby just in case things go south. :lol:
