What is there to say? They unloaded on an under-manned Elks team. I doubt it would have mattered but the Champs remain the clear favourite.
Back in the 2 spot after 2 losses to the Champs they beat a quality Argos team at home. Fajardo was his normal efficient self, keeping with his 10 yard or so completion average, and with some key injuries they continued their home success.
It was hard to give them too much credit for 2 straight Ottawa wins, but this win looked much better. On the road travelling across the country. It has to count for something right? BC is showing they are in the West mix with Saskatchewan for a home playoff game.
The D has started to play like the D us Ticats fans were expecting coming out of camp. This game reminded me of the post Collaros injury games when Austin, Steinauer, Condell and Reinbold had to figure out ways to manufacture wins. This game was won with a patient offense, waiting for Calgary to make mistakes (which they did) and capitalizing with points when it mattered. The Cats also got a much needed boost in the kicking department. Instead of an expected downward spiral, the Cats find themselves mathematically in 1st in the East. If the D continues to play like this, the return of both QBs and key receivers could be enough to give the Cats home field for the East final. They're not ranked here because of the win - they're ranked here because to win a game like that you must be a good team.
Never really in the game in Sask, Toronto gave up 122 rushing yards to William Powell. The Argos have big play ability and Nick Arbuckle is far and away their best QB, but right now they are firmly planted in the middle of the inconsistent teams.
Somehow they had the lead in the 3rd quarter, but personally I never felt like they would win. Edmonton is high on Tyler Cornelius but if they're going to rely on him for the next 5 games he'll have to cut down on the INTs but all in all he didn't look too bad for his first CFL action playing that Winnipeg D.
You can't lose that game at home. Vernon Adams continues to be inconsistent with turnovers of the worst kind. They've been a disappointment after some late success in 2019. Im not sure the absence of Coach Jones hurt them that much, I just don't think they're as good as Hamilton and Toronto.
Possibly the worst game on record for the Huff/Dickenson/Bo Levi era. They looked horrible. Bo looked slow and tentative. Hamilton's D shut them down but going into the game without any sort of proven kick/punt returner really hurt them. You can't simply ignore special teams in this league and expect to win a road game. I got this team wrong, they're young and making young mistakes.
This was their best performance in a while.
