An odd night from the veteran. He ended up throwing for less than 200 yards but he had a terrific 71 passing percentage. He did what was needed to secure a win but not enough to threaten for startling quarterback.
DJ Foster had to go it alone tonight with White out and he held up admirably. He was steady as the lone back, churning out yards on the ground. As hoped, he was an absolute weapon catching out of the backfield and he had the offensive turning point of the game with a long TD catch and run.
It was another spin of wheel of fortune with the starting WR group. Still no consistent unit starting but they showed off depth once again with Jeanpiere catching a deep touchdown and Collins Jr was an effective target. Effective night from the crew, nothing explosive but enough.
A good night from the unit. Only two sacks given up although Campbell was beaten pretty cleanly. They opened some lanes for Foster and were able to control the line of scrimmage all game. Not dominant but enough.
The line did a great job of keeping Evans in check as a runner. The CN Power continued to look like a CFL All Star with steady play in the middle and a sack. Drake Nevis was a terrific addition off the injured list to really solidify the middle and he will let Oakman go hunting more. Feeney has been a nice discovery and he is earning more playing time each week.
Same good vibes go this unit, with the run game never taking off. McCoil had a great pick six and Hoyte had a really nice game in place of Judge. Coach Jones seems to like him more than Cassar at this point but we'll see what Monday brings.
Somehow, Ottawa threw for over 330 yards but it did not feel like it from where I sit. Evans racked up some garbage time numbers, but the DB squad came through with a pick six from Edwards and a terrific game from Crezdon Butler. Shaq and Edwards got into it with the bench and were both jawing on the field but I don’t mind, if you want the flame blue, that’s what you get sometimes.
All over the map here. A terrific punt block by Pellerin led to a score by Brissett but once again the Argos gave up a blocked punt for a score. It absolutely needs to get fixed. Excellent work keeping Dedmon in check, which was a major key for the game. Worthy didn’t build on earlier excitement as a returner and coughed up a fumble at the world’s worst time. It didn’t matter, but it will.
Defensively, the team looked more aggressive and hungrier for turnovers. It was a terrific sign of a team ready to take a step. The team took care of business against a lesser opponent and once again showed home dominance. No real arguments with the vanilla offense before a big Hamilton game.
