First off i still say that Toronto puts on a really good show for their fans and theres no reason not to go to an Argo game if you live in Toronto.
Having said that there was just over 21k as the announced attendance. They were quite loud when Ricky Williams came in.
Im sure you'll see on the highlights that Wayne Shaw and Renard Cox did well to string him out to the wide field and out of bounds, it looked like Ricky was trying to use his speed on the wide field to his advantage, didnt work tonight. Cheatwood and Belli took care of his other two carries.
We havfe some tough decisions to make on this team. 4 quality QB's tonight... im sure those in attendance would agree that Maas did indeed look good in his time in the game, looked in control and knew what he was doing. Eakin looked great aswell, he looks for that longball alot but sometimes that helps, Maas looks more for the underneath game.
PLAYS of the night...
Bobby Brooks INT of a screen pass early on.
Craig Yeast in double coverage taking a hit and making a nice catch.
Terry Vaughn's TD was simply awesome. The
guy bounced off of 3 Argos to score and made a nice catch in traffic to start the play.
Fake FG was nice, Boreham made a nice block and Fleming got hammered by Stokes.
Mike Morreale's TD at the end was with 3 defenders ALL OVER HIM and the pass interfearance called, it was a jump ball and MM went up and got it. Simply a great play.
PLAYERS that stood out
- Talmon Gardner
- Corey Holmes
- Willie Quinnie
- Ray Mariuz
- Renard Cox
- Pat Fleming
Thats basically it. Theres guys that could probably be called out but what fun is that after a win like this one?
There were still some balls dropped, some blocks missed, and a couple wide kicks that would be seen as fairly routine.
The team played well but im sure the coaches will say that theres work to be done. Its a great start to the preseason and shows that perhaps the hard work at camp could pay off for this team and its coaches.
