THIS GUY LOOKED GREAT ..HE IS OVERSIZED FOR A DE ..ANYNE AGREE THAT WE COUDL TRY HIM AT DT WHEN LONG COMES BACK ?
The Ticat win was definitely a team effort but a particular shout out to the defensive line. According to the game stats on the cfl.ca website, Justin Hickman had 7 tackles, Darrell Adams had 5 and Garrett McIntyre had 4. These numbers are way above average game tackle stats for defensive lineman. And, even though he has only recorded 1 tackle in the two games he has played, Demonte' Bolden has played well in the interior of the defensive line by plugging gaps and pushing the pocket. The eventual return of defensive end Khari Long from injury will give Marcel Bellefeuille and Greg Marshall some tough but good choices. Whomever they choose, deploying four import defensive linemen and adding outside linebacker Jamall Johnson, who had 6 tackles tonight for a total of 17 tackles in two games, has transformed the defence into a force to be reckoned with. Well done!
4 tackles is great for his first game. Hell.. even for a 10th game 4 is good. He almost had a sack on at least 2 occasions also.
It can't be said enough. This guy was a beast out there tonight.
While our entire DL looks great to this early point... McIntyre, Adams and Hickman are shining.
Shine on and on it early and lets hope they can step it up one more notch against Montreal.
