It’s almost time for Game #2 this season, and it’s against our most hated rivals.
If Hamilton plays the way they did last week, I predict another loss.
If BLM plays the same way he did last week, he deserves to be banched for the game. The question is, will Stein have the stones to do so.
Our primary returner and DB is out with an undisclosed condition.
We are starting two raw rookies at CB - something ANY team will exploit.
Our placekicker has disappeared into the ether and is on the suspended list with no explanation.
We are dressing only 6 O-linemen. One would think that is a bad decision since we lost TWO of them last week to injury.
Frankly, with what we saw last week, I’m not too hopeful for a win, despite the turnover in personnel in Toronto.
Maybe one of these decades the team might actually start the season prepared to win football games…
The D-Line must put pressure on Chad Kelly and take away his time to look for the available plays. That did not happen last week.
BLM and the offence must put up a significant number of points. That can give us a shot at winning as our D has a big lack of experience in the backfield especially at the corners and leaves us vulnerable to the air attack. Again did not happen last week.
Penalties! Penalties! Penalties! Killed us last game. Must be drastically reduced.
The good news is that the Blew team isn’t nearly as deep as the Bummers. They have had significant turn over and a bunch of starters out too.
This game is a chance for the Cats to make a statement! The only question is - will it be a bold or bad one.
I personally expect a much better game from the Cats. More disciplined and focused. I expect to win this one.
Since they’re not playing my Bombers, I’ll be pulling hard for the Ticats tonight.
Still have my shirt from the game I attended about 7 years ago. I believe it was Hamilton over Toronto. The game was stopped temporarily due to lightning.
I do think that the team will play better - doubt that Kelly is going to be able to carve them up like Collaros did early in the game. They DID get better in the second half and have had some extra rest so the boatmen coming off their bye shouldn’t be a big factor.
Can’t say that I’m too confident in Legghio as a kicker - not going to be as good as Small but maybe we’ll be surprised. They DO have to be better at stopping the run - was surprised when I saw how many rushing yards they gave up to the BBs because they seemed to be containing Oliviera at least early in the game.
I do expect to see more discipline - something that definitely needs to be cleaned up.
