In week 4 we beat the Alouettes 39-24 at Ivor Wynne. I have read a lot of posts about how Montreal is going to roll over us next week but I have to ask what has changed personnel wise from that last win???
Only player missing on offence is Bakari Grant. Knowlton and Smith are injured. I admit losing Smith is a big hit to the secondary as he is probably the best DB on the team outside of Bucknor this season and losing Knowlton caused Creehan to put Thomas at LB which isnt going that well but still only 3 guys taken out of the lineup since the victory over the Als and people are ready to close up shop and call it a season already after two bad games.
I am not saying that the Ti-Cat's have played good as of late because they havent. But still this is the same team who ripped off three straight wins and had everyone in Tigertown drinking the kool-aid heading into the bye week. They had two bad games but these guys havent forgotten how to play football. I dont know why people dont think Burris and the boys can come out flying again and hang 40 on a suspect Als defence.
I am looking for a shootout in next week's game...but that's only if Cortez can get these get these guys back on track mentally. I think the team as a whole has to step back right now and re-assess the last two weeks and just forget about them and re-focus on the task at hand.
I am not saying we won't get embarrassed next week, but I am just saying there is just as good a possibility we will put 40 on the scoreboard and give the Als a game.
We are a true Jekyll and Hyde team. Isn't it fun!? :roll:
