I hope for a W tonight.
I know that that doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement, but it's about the best I can say, given what I've witnessed this season. There is no doubt that the Als have all the tools on O, but those running the show have not been using them to their best ability and the execution has not been evident. Crompton is still very much on a learning curve, although there has been improvement, so we'll see.
I feel confident that Ottawa will be sending in some of their bench strength as they prepare for next season, but they desperately want to give their fans a W and to create some excitement for the team, especially in light of the tragic events that occurred two days ago.
The Als can't look beyond this game to the two remaining games against the Argos and Ticats. The D will still have to play lights out and the O has to execute. There has been some momentum and traction gained on O over the last 4 games; winning will do that. I don't want the RB fans to be disappointed, but this is pro ball and the final 3 games are tantamount to playoffs where the Als are concerned. Now we'll find out what our team is made of.
With apologies to the good people of Ottawa, I hope the Als come out with a W tonight!
