Football, the ULTIMATE team sport ... the reason why I will NEVER vote for the Rogers PLAYER of the game, or EVER SUPPORT the notion of SINGLING out a player in victory.
The DEFENSE as a UNIT played well tonight ... even Shaw played decently. I'm stll (as are the opposing offenses) UNDERWHELMED by their pass rush, but the secondary is making them feel pretty good about themselves.
The OFFENSE, with the LINE playing MUCH IMPROVED - played pretty efficiently. Through black and gold colored glasses, one COULD argue Maas looked half decent, however, I'll wait for the band wagon to come around again before I jump on. Jesse was more than GAME last night. He ran with AUTHORITY and moved the chains when asked. Peterson, even with is Jekyl and Hyde impersonation, played pretty well. Twas nice to see DJ get some yards tonight.
Overall, a GREAT WIN on the ROAD in Commonwealth, and one of the more COMPLETE efforts, to date. As such, I won't rain on the PARADE, EXCEPT to say that Edmonton was a little RIPE for the PICKING.
Hopefully some of this recent SUCCESS will bouy the boys with a litte self confidence. They will NEED it ALL next week against the Senior Cats.
