Usually, preseason games are not high on strategy. Coaches keep their special plays for when it counts. (Jeremaine Copeland’s TD pass being an exception to that… but Higgins is known for using tricky plays in bizarre situations… ain’t I right Eskies fans? )
So I doubt anything will be representative.
Calvillo won’t complete the game tonight even if the score is thinght and Ottawa has victory at hand. The Don doesn’t care about preseason wins.
As well, for Montreal, Matthews needs to make a decision about our future kicker. So don’t expect us to go for it on 3rd and short, because we have to see as many punts and FG tries.
I believe Montreal should pull tonight’s victory, but I really don’t mind. I hope Gauthier has a second great outing and I hope Ted White fails again so he might drop in the depth chart.
Edmonton and BC should win the other two contests. Hugh Campbell will have high blood pressure if its team doesn’t beat Winnipeg twice in a row. In the other game, I have no reason to expect Calgary to fail, but I give the victory to BC because that team just seem to have no weaknesses.
