STE vs the Argos:
12 runs for 109 yards, longest 52!
3 catches for 56 yards, longest 37!
After 2 weeks he ranks 2nd in the league in rushing with 177 yards, behind CJ Gable (265) and ahead of Mossis Madu (162). (Yes, all three came into the league with HAM - and STE looks like he’s been watching CJ highlights circa 2013.)
Q1: Best 8th round draft choice of the decade? A: Maybe, I don’t track these things.
Q2: Best off-season decision to make him the preferred starter? A: Perhaps - we’ll have to see how some of the free agent signings play out. It was probably Orlondo’s call, since we know JJ liked Green.
Q3: Should he have started some games last year after the early standout performance against WPG (92 yards rushing)? A: Not sure there is really a point in trying to second-guess that decision. We were generally in good shape at RB with Green and White (that sounds funny) and STE got to contribute as a backup receiver.
Q4: Bona fide starting RB in this league regardless of passport? A: Sure looks that way.
Q5: Equally good at all three phases (running, catching, blocking)? A: Great hands - haven’t really paid enough attention to his blocking, TBH.
Q6: Is he glad he didn’t sign with his home-town Alouettes this past off-season? A: I’m gonna say, oui.
Q7: The next Andrew Harris? A: Way, WAY too early to make that comparison. Why would someone even ask that?
