After last weeks outing, how do you think we will show on Thursday?
I think that we will play much better, and that we might be able to pull out a win. Casey will play well again, and Lumsden will get the amount of carries that he deserves! Woodcock and Mitchell will both play well, as well as Miles will play very well against his old team! I hope our defence play better, hopefully Moreno will look like he did last season.
All in all should be a good game! I hope we stick it to the Argos!!
You have to be optimistic but I don't see how the Cats could beat the Argos. Your -Cats fans- 2008 season will be awful. For the goods of the Team and League I hope to be wrong.
The main weakness of your Cats is in Canadian talent; they basically have nobody amongst their last 3 drafts. So weak,that they don't have too much flexibility with regards to ratio. Moreno will not be the same without Armour. During exhibition games they could play Caully or Smith but not anymore,unless they play with 1 less import DB.
Well the Argos offense was not very good last week but they were playing the East division champs. Winnipeg has a great defense. I expect it to be a challenge for our young defense.
This offense will have their hands full with the Argos defense as well. Can the receivers get open? I hope so. Jesse must be involved early and often, and he has to be effective all game long or they have no chance.
Without great pass blocking and a solid running game Casey won’t be able to do much by the end of the first half. Any offensive momentum they were developing in the second quarter was shut down by the middle of the third quarter because it was all shoe string plays being created by Printers on broken plays. The offense that they did show was not the result of superior scheming or team execution and that kind of stuff just can’t last.
Toronto is a difficult team to prepare against this season because you don't know who is going to start for them at QB. Each presents a different set of problems. But if I am the Ticats. You probably want to take away the run. Their deep treat is Johnson so make sure the FS knows where he is at all time.
On offense make the old dudes on the argo defense run like crazy. Smashmouth football and play to the strenthts of that oline. Keep it simple...Have Printers throw on the run. Everything that takes longer then 2 seconds to develop tear it out of the playbook.
I can't remember the last time the Cats beat the Argos in Toronto. In fact, I think the Cats are 0-10 on the road going back to 2007. On that basis, you might say they don't have much chance. On the other hand, you might say they're due.
