The shovel pass is one play that needs work if the Esks use it; to be executed properly has to come from Ray on his reads as the game moves along. Once the running game gets going; only Ricky can call it at the right time. The said play didn’t work against Sask. in the last game from what I remember. On D; Tate will be tested more so with Stublers 3/4 schemes - this was evident against Winnipeg’s Linebackers (* see note) = thus creating hurry up throws that could lead to interceptions.
*note; not sure that Winnipeg runs a 3/4 = but confusion was evident. Thoughts anybody?
