After Edmonton was blown out by Montreal and then B.C., I asked if maybe their season was over. Things weren't looking good for the Eskimos. They'd given up 90 points in both of those games, and they had to go into Regina the following week, a place where they'd gone 1-9 in their last 10 games, and then they had the rematch against Montreal. A 1-4 start was looking like a real possibility.
Here we are two weeks later, and the Eskimos upset the Riders in Regina, and they're 39 seconds away from handing Montreal their first loss of the season. I guess the answer to my question is an emphatic NO!
It looks like this team is finally coming together. The defence is getting stops, and the offence is finally putting up more than 16 points. It's funny, when the O-Line actually gives Ricky Ray time, like they're supposed to, our receiving corps doesn't look half bad. Dont get me wrong, losing Tucker and Campbell hurt, but I think tonight proved we still have a pretty good group. The O-Line just needs to do its job.
How they've played for the last week and a half is exactly how I expected them to play at the start of the season.
