The solution to stopping Arland Bruce III on Friday night might look pretty simple on paper.

In reality, though, it’s a lot more difficult.

Bruce leads the Canadian Football League with 744 receiving yards and has five touchdowns for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who will be at the Rogers Centre in four days for a game with the Argos that is being billed as Rivalry Night.

Argonauts cornerback Byron Parker never has played against Bruce, as they were teammates in Toronto until former Toronto head coach Bart Andrus made his biggest blunder of the 2009 season and decided Bruce was not a proper fit for the offence. (And as it turned out, Andrus was right.

Talented

Bruce was too talented for anything the Argos were trying to do). Bruce was traded to Hamilton that July.

“He is great after the catch,? Parker said.

“If you give him the ball at five yards, he is good at turning it into 10 yards, 15 yards, or a long run for a touchdown. We just have to wrap him up and get him to the ground and not let him get extra yards.?

Parker often had the job of covering Bruce in practice, so nothing Bruce is doing now is eye-opening.

“It’s Arland being Arland,? Parker said. “Is anybody surprised? Because I’m not. Since I have known him, he has always torn up the league.

“Making plays is something he does. I’ve just never had the chance to hit him before.?

I have Feeling the Argo will Doublle AB 3 all Night

Arland on the radio^.

I wouldn't mind if they doubled Bruce.
We have some great receivers and that just means one of them will always be open.

The Host wanted to talk more about US Stuff then the CFL :thdn:

It was still an ok interview.
He seemed excited to talk to Bruce and I liked that.

Really looking forward to this game I'm expected it will be a shootout, hopefully the tabbies can get a W and make the east a toss up, 4-4 going into the bye, then labour day! :thup:

Yeah, but I think by engaging him in matters close to home, it revealed alot about the interviewee. Brady did a good job in drawing him out and I learned something new about Bruce at the same time.

I hope the worrisome trend in this case, of the let down game heading into a bye-week does not continue. They're thinking about friends and family and anything but the game. Will be just as much a barometer of their mental togetherness as anything else.
