CFL on TSN
Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. Ottawa Redblacks
Sun 3:30PM ET / 12:30PM PT on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5
When a team is 0-8, it is high time to change the losing recipe and find a way to win games. Especially when most of the games lost have been squeakers. Apart from cutting down on stupid, stupid penalties, the Riders need to control the ball more to help Brett Smith out more and keep the opponent's offense off the field. I am astounded how under-utilized Jerome Messam has been in the running game for the better part of a month. If Saskatchewan can get 15-20 carries from him, the chances of winning go way up. I think Ottawa has enough to capitalize on Rider mistakes and brain farts though, so it will be a case of what unfolds early determining the course of the game. Corey Chamblin has not succeeded in applying the brakes to this descent and it could become a free fall if 0-9 happens!
Oski Wee Wee,
P.S. SB Chris Getzlaf is out for Sunday's game with an apparent leg injury . The Riders go from bad to worse!
