As long as Durant stays healthy.


Agree on your point about Darian, Robair. We definitely need him to be healthy especially considering he seems to be firing on most cylinders right now. When the O-line is unable to give him the time he needs to throw, he is showing his running skills again and his slipperiness in getting away from attackers. He certainly has no lack of efficient receivers. Glad to see Rob back in great form.

As happy as I am with the offensive line, it is the defensive line which keeps impressing me. They seem to learn and adapt quickly to the different offences they face. Even Dwight Anderson seems to have taken Corey Chamberlain's unique style of punishment to heart and is playing like a human being - hope he keeps it up.

After Calgary was treated to a quick 2 and out on the opening series of the game, Montreal took to the field hoping to quell some of the muttering about the coaching. Their first possession of the game ate up 6+ minutes on the clock and resulted in a TD. It was a well-executed drive and gave hope that this time the home-team might make their fans proud. It was not to be. Things just went downhill with a few rises here and there but not enough to show that anything at all had been solved. Montreal was in no way aided by the fact that they gave up well over 60 yards in penalties - just in the 1rst Q.

Kevin Glenn looked great in and out of the pocket. Sinopoli had a big night - good on the kid from Peterborough who was once a back-up QB for his team. Charleston Hughes had a great night. Rene Paredes was five for five on the night and an unbeaten streak of 25 straight FGs. Rock on Rene. In fact both the Cal D and O did a good solid job.

Final score: 22 - 14 Calgary...........and even more questions will be raised about the floundering Montreal offense.

Both the Hamilton/Winterpeg game and the Lions/Eski's games were pretty entertaining. If Rosie didn't have to work Saturday, we were goiung to trek over to Edmonton to see the game. After watching the rain we was glad we didn't..... :lol:

Sprained.

I'm hoping they start Willy against the cats. Not one of the stronger teams right now, and Darian needs to mend.

Agreed. They're paying Willy to be able to manage and win games by doing that in these situations so now we'll get to see if he's our backup or, if the kid Sunseri is the answer.

Good thing we've got Cortez as the OC since he'll probably already have a game plan mapped out for Willy.

Just checked though and they haven't put Durant on the injured or 9 game list which leads me to be optimistic that he'll be back sooner than later maybe even by Sunday.

Scott Milanovich's squad sailed into Bomber territory and right by the hapless Winnipeg team who were left floundering, their leader on the sidelines and their fans swamped by an Argo juggernaut.

Before leaving the game in the 3rd Q with an lower limb injury, Rickie Ray had thrown 20 passes with 19 completions for a total of 286 yards - in short, he was outstanding leading his team downfield in series after series with little opposition from the porous Bomber D.

The Winnipeg offense was stymied all night by a rejuvenated Argo defense under the coaching of Marcus Brady. To be fair, the Bombers were missing three of their top receivers - Matthews, Watson and Edwards. Buck was 10 of 14 for 139 yards before he too was forced to leave the game with an abdominal injury. Winnipeg was held to 3 FGs and a conceded sinlge until the latter minutes of the 4th Q when Chad Simpson went over for the only Bomber major of the game.

TO tail-back, Chad Kackert was also injured in the game as was Bomber DB, Johnny Sears.

The Argos return to TO with a convincing 35 to 19 win over the Bombers.

Montreal owned the first quarter, scoring 24 unanswered points. Unfortunately for the Als they would not score another point until the 4th Q. Brandon Whittaker, SJ Green and Jerome Messam would put the only majors of the game on the board for Montreal. Sean White would add 3 points on a 42 yarder. The Montreal defense effectively shut down the Stamps offense in the first quarter.

Rene Paredes started the scoring for the Stamps with his 26th consecutive FG of the season - early in the 2nd Q. For most of the 2nd, it was a battle of the defenses until late in the Q when St Pierre ran the ball into the end zone for Cal's first TD of the game. They tried and failed on the 2pt convert so the score sat at 24 to 9. Rene Paredes would up his total to 27 adding 3 more points to the scoreboard. Not to be outdone Nik Lewis somehow managed to reel in a heck of a pass from Kevin Glenn. Once again they came up short on the 2pt attempt and the half would end with Montreal in the lead 24 to 19.

Montreal were called for a couple of nasty penalties in the first half but they really upped their total in the second, giving Cal over a half a football field of free yards. At least two of the penalties came when the Stamps were facing 2 and out situations and gave them an immediate 1rst D usually w/ extra yards tagged on due to the nature of the penalty.

Once again Rene Paredes would start the scoring for the Stamps putting one through from the 29 for his 28 and two away from tiein the CFL record. The Stamps had narrowed their gap to 2 pts and Montreal had no answer for them.

Rene Paredes would come w/in 1 pt of tieing the record but on his final attempt the kick was blocked. Kevin Glen was hurt on a beautiful 45 yard pass to McDaniel. He knew the hit was coming but stood in long enough to give his receiver time to finish his route. The pass was on the money and the Stamps were down to the 10. Jon Cornish would add 6 more points but the 2 pt attempt failed - again. None-the-less Calgary had the lead for the first time in the game and they never gave it back.

Final Score: 38 to 27 for Calgary.

He's still in the running, apparently the ruling is the ball didn't cross the line of scrimmage so it's not a missed attempt.

Edit: From the CFL....

Quote:
With just over a minute remaining in the game, Paredes was given a chance to tie McCallum's record, but saw his attempt blocked by Montreal's John Bowman.

However, the statistical rulebook states that for a legal kick to be made the ball must cross the line of scrimmage. In all cases of this kind the kicker is charged with a fumble and not a field goal attempt in the case where it is blocked and the ball is recovered behind the line of scrimmage.

As a result, Paredes' streak remains intact at 29.

Thanks for that, Hyack.......so glad to see the streak is still alive. One thing I like about TSN is the back-stories they feature on the players and Rene has quite the story.

In my previous post, I was remiss on not mentioning a game-changing play by Fred Bennett. Montreal's Devine was only a yard or two away from the goal line, returning a punt, when Bennett popped the ball loose and went onto recover it in the end zone. Calgary scored two plays later and once again Montreal was left in the dust. It was a super effort by Fred.

What more can he say? Really, this is the third game in a row when he will have to come up with some reason that the Montreal offense is floundering. This time, however he will have to also explain how the hell they could blow a 24 - zip lead!
