Fresh of a thight loss to the Stampeders, Don Matthews announced what's his plan to make the Als better this week, when they will be playing an hungry Edmonton squad in Edmonton. It is a thorough plan in three steps that will indubitably make the Alouettes invincible. This plan is so perfect that not even the finest football expert could point any flaw in it:
Marc Megna, known as the ignition key of the Alouettes' defence, will not be dressed. The starting RE will be Mawuko Tugbenyoh, who has yet to succesfully tackle someone this year, or to understand what to do when facing a run-play. The goal of this tactic is to confuse the Eskimos, who should spend at least 45 minutes wondering where is Megna. Of course, the Don could have kept Megna as a back-up, but he figured out the Eskimos would be even more confused to see Megna in the stands.
John Nix, the recently discovered powerhouse DT, will join Megna in the stands. The Don decided it was more important to use Nix's good vision to try to steal the Eskimos signals, than to use his ability to push back two o-linemen at once. Smart move. He will be replaced on the field by the ex-Stampeders garbage-player Clay Robertson.
The Don "fixed" the only unit well-working (the offence), by ousting an experienced WR to let Robert Edwards' young brother have a shot at the CFL. As everybody knows, rookies do very well when facing the Eskimos. And who cares if the young lad is inexperienced. He's got a winning name.
But anyways, I couldn't care less, because... GO ARRRRRGOS !!!
