Great story of our young receivers in Montreal and their impact on the game.[url=http://www.torontosun.com/2011/11/14/the-emergence-of-ticats-bakari-grant]http://www.torontosun.com/2011/11/14/th ... kari-grant[/url]
His second-quarter touchdown grab in double coverage when Kevin Glenn threw into the smallest of windows was textbook: Grant using his 6-foot-4 frame to create separation and finishing the sequence by showcasing hands any receiver of any vintage would appreciate.
At no time during the regular season was he able to post a 100-yard receiving game, which made Sunday’s performance in the East semifinal against Montreal all the more remarkable, which is saying a lot given how remarkable the game would become.
Just before regulation, it was a Grant reception that placed the Ticats in field goal range, only to be denied when lack of execution and lack of composure led to a time-count penalty and ultimately a missed Justin Medlock attempt that would force overtime.
In overtime, yet another Grant catch put the Ticats in the score zone, where they could capitalize on Quinton Porter’s second plunge on the afternoon.[/b]
All told, Grant would haul in a team-high seven receptions for 130 yards.
