Riders are missing three starters on their defence: A DT, a DE, and a linebacker. One player they'll rely on is former Ticat Montez Murphy.

So it is quite possible we could see Cobb pick where he left off last week and get us some big gains again. It would be good to get some long drives and to get some rushing yards, and to see how good this offence can be. AB3 had over 250 rec. yards the last time these teams played, it would be great if he could at least come close to getting that many.
So yes, the Riders do look beatable.
When the Riders have the ball, I look forward to seeing McIntyre back on the D and to see Baggs join it. But hopefully the D will do a better job containing the QB than they did when Printers was at QB. But to force turnovers would be great. I liked the quote from Tisdale in this article: http://ticats.ca/article/smith-makes-ti ... tiger-cats
“I told Stevie that I’m going to want to see some floaters coming my way tomorrow,? said Tisdale.
The Riders may have a 7-5 record. But their record is 1-4 when they are not playing at Taylor Field. Maybe there is some truth to what was claimed in this video: http://ticats.ca/video/index/id/14327
