Our defence is still awesome and our special teams are outstanding - We have more than half a dozen legit starters on injured reserve who will be with the team down the stretch. Defence wins championships and will be the difference in an icy Winnipeg in November. With first team reps over the next two weeks (good time for a bye week) I think Mathews will be OK. He may be a little Brett Favreish by nature and we may see some bad interceptions but with some tweaks I think he'll be fine.
We came very close to beating the Esks without Collaros last night - arguably the best team in the West right now.
