Anyone who follows the Cats has got to admit it. They are improving so much. Do you remember week one in Calgary? It was some of the worst football I've seen. Compare that to Friday night. They went toe to toe with a team sporting the top offense in the league. Don't let it bother you that the Bombers pulled away in the 4th. Think of the momentum. The fan noise was incredible. It was the loudest that stadium has ever been - a sellout with every fan going wild after Stegall broke the record. The Bombers responded and played up - they played their best football and only won in the closing minutes.
On the positive, the Ticats found their goto reciever. Chris Bauman stepped in and stepped up. The rest of the recieving core stepped up as well. Also, starting Canadians like Bauman and Lumsden will allow the head office to continue to look for some high octane imports.
I thought Maas played a good game. He seemed to be a great leader out there. My only concern is his range. It is pretty clear he doesn't pose a deep threat and that is a problem because I'm sure every defence in the league has figured this out. Soon they'll find a way to stop the dump passes. Either Maas's arm needs to continue to heal (which I think is still happening) or the Cats need to consider putting in Chang or Williams (In my opinion Williams looked better than Chang for the brief few minutes he was in)
