It’s usually towards the end of the season when you have an idea of how a team has progressed or not, so the Riders did their fans a favor last week by imploding against the Montreal Alouettes 23-17 to put themselves in the drivers seat
As the CFl heads into Week 3 with three of the nine starting quarterbacks out with injury, what may save or hurt those teams is how well they have managed to fill the back-up position.
I think there is a boxing expression that everyone has plan in the ring until they get hit. The CFL is no different as Week 1 is in the books and the best laid plans of Marc Trestman. Jason Maas and all took a bit of a beating.
I’ve been thinking a bit about 1979 when Ron Lancaster took over as head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The last weekend of CFL football has already kicked off, and already there is a plot line that may have implications on the dogfight that is expected to be the Western Conference.
So the first game of the pre-season is in the books with Edmonton pinning the Saskatchewan Roughrider third stringers to the floor by a 35-12 mark.
