SSK vs MTL was the best game of Week 8 so far. CGY vs BC was an okay game. The 96 yard kickof return by Brown was awesome, however. He sliced and diced the Stamps on that play.

The only downside of Week 8 up to now was my Bombers getting waxed again :(

Edmonton vs Toronto

Best display of aerial tactics in the CFL this year – over 900 offensive passing yards.

Mike Reilly: 35/46 – 511 yards and 3 TDs – 0 interceptions

Ricky Ray: 30/35 – 413 yards and 3 TDs – 0 interceptions and tied club record for most consecutive completions. He was hot.

The night was rift with hi-lit reel material for receptions and a couple of the weirdest plays.

The best, IMO, catch of the game came off a scrambling Mike Reilly Hail Mary pass that bounced off the helmet of one TO defender, through the hands of two others then dropped into the waiting hands of Kary Koch – flat on his back on the turf! A close second was a 31-yarder from Mike to Chambers in the end zone catching the ball despite being draped, literally by TO’s Carter. Chiles 31 yarder in the end zone deserves honorable mention.

In spite of his record tonight, Ricky was not w/o miscues – he dropped a snap that led to a fumble which he quickly recovered then threw downfield somehow finding Chilles for a big gain on the play. On another miscue, Ricky had one punched out but one of his linebackers recovered and got back over the line of scrimmage – a similar situation also a TO linebacker save Ricky’s bacon. The Argos could almost do no wrong tonight.

Toronto scored on their opening drive of the game driving 79 yards downfield on 5 plays to complete the drive with Robinson catching his first in the end zone.

Edmonton’s drive was equally impressive but the T.O. D held them to a field goal.

The Argos were 2 and out on their next drive but pinned the Esks at their 10 on Prefontaine’s kick.

Despite starting deep in their end zone, the Esks moved the ball down to the 20 before once again being forced to kick a FG. Shaw was good from the 38 and the Esks trailed by 1 at the end of the 1rst Q.

The Esks took the lead early in the 2nd on a Grant Shaw FG at 13:36. The Argos struck right back and helped by a 15-yard Esk penalty, Ricky found Barnes in the end zone and TO regained the lead.

Scoring drives were stalled until late in the Q when the Esks took possession on their own 5 and marched the ball downfield for a Kary Koch TD to trail by 2. The Argos replied with a drive of their own that saw Prefontaine add another 3 points to the Argos’ score giving them a 17 – 16 lead at the half.

The Argos extended their lead midway through the 3rd Q when Ricky found Chilles in the end zone with a 31-yarder after a 90-yard drive from the 20. The Esks went 2 and out their next possession but their D-line stepped up to force the same on the Argos.

The Esks struggled with poor field position often during the game and were forced to concede 2 pts when they couldn’t get the ball out of the red zone. On the next series the Argos got past the Esk’s D-line and Ray found Owens this time for the end zone TD to go ahead 33 to 16 which would stay that way to end the period.

TO was forced to a FG attempt on their next possession but Prefontaine hit the upright – dead ball, no point. Esks got lucky there. However, on their next possession which was highlighted the amazing Koch catch, they too were forced to a FG attempt and Shaw missed from the 28. That miss would loom large over the team after Mike Reilly with his best field position of the game took the team downfield and found Chambers in the end zone and they were down by 10. They would pull w/in 7 points when Shaw was once again called upon and came through with a 3 pointer from the 20.

With the score 33 to 26 for the home team and just over 2:10 left in the game, it looked as if the Esks just might have a chance to tie the game but that hope was dashed as the Argos put up another 3 points on a Prefontaine FG and again lead by 10.

In spite of that, Mike Reilly took his team downfield finding Stamps in the end zone with one second left on the time clock – it was a valiant drive in a losing effort.

I was very impressed with Mike tonight. He needs to work on his timing but that will come. His accuracy improves with every game and he and Stamps have a great thing going.

O’Dell Willis was the best defensive player for the Esks all night – he was 100%. Good to see him back to the good old ways.

It was penalties – AGAIN- that killed the Esks. It’s way past bench time, Kavis – those guys lost this game for the team.

TO on longest winning streak since 2007 with 4 straight wins – all over 30 pts. They sit way top of the Eastern Division 6 points ahead of Hamilton.

Wonder Boy Tanner Marsh against all probabilities and having thrown 4 interceptions in the game somehow found what he needed to take his team to victory over the BC Lions last night. A single point was the deciding one in a game that saw 3 kick/punt returns for TDs, an unholy number of penalties by both teams and a BC offense that struggled throughout the game.

It was a game of miscues, errors, outstanding plays and a comeback that will live long in Montreal's memory. The Lions never gave up the lead from the opening quarter always staying a couple of points ahead of the Als until the final minute of the 4th.

After being backed up to around their 6th yard line by holding penalty, Tanner Marsh found Jerome Messam for five yards, missed on his next throw, then facing 3rd and 5 threw a beaut to Deslauriers for a 1rst D with just over 21 seconds on the clock. Arland Bruce got Montreal to the 46 but Tanner's next pass didn't connect. On 2nd and 10 with 9 seconds showing on the time clock, Tanner stepped up into the pocket and released a 57 yard pass that sailed into the waiting hands of Deslauriers who beat the veteran Dante Marsh for the catch to the 15 yard line. Sean White came out on the field with a 1 second left and booted a 15 yard FG for the win.

Great win Montreal and thank you from a Rider fan. LOL!

Calgary at Toronto

Gotta give it to the Stamps, they deserved this one – for one thing they played a cleaner game and for another, the players filling in for the injured did a good job in their positions. Walter and Williams were solid on play after play. Charleston Hughes made an early impact on the TO offense when he sent Ricky Ray to the locker room after a hard clean hit to the turf. Ricky would not return to play but did come back to the sidelines later in the game in his civies.

Chris Jones has a lot of work to do with his young defensive line – they were great on some plays and absolutely dismal on others. This was seen most clearly when Bo Levi Mitchell found not a lane but highway to the end zone open up for him – probably the easiest TD he will ever score.

Zach Collaros was thrown into the game cold and though he managed to get a TD for the Argos and was effective running the ball himself on several plays, he was unable to overcome the Stamps D-line who pressured him all night.

There were no really spectacular plays in the game – no great run backs though Rob Maver limited any chance TO had by continually nailing big kicks deep in TO territory. His first two punts saw the Argos conceding a total of 4 pts to the Stamps.

The only cloud in the Stamps sky was Rene Paredes 39 consecutive FG record coming to an end on a 22 yard attempt. He would later boot one in from the 42 but the streak was over.

Kevin Glenn was also knocked out of the game early in the 4th Q, he would return to the sidelines but not to the game. Bo Levi Mitchell came in to replace him.

One of the funnier moments in the game came when the normally cool Dave Dickenson absolutely freaked out on the sidelines in an attempt to get the officials attention after hearing that the chains would not be used to measure the exact ball placement on a 3rd D. He was finally able to get a time-out called after having sent his punt team on the field only to call them back and send the offense back out. This also discombulated the Argos who were forced to call a time-out of their own to make personnel changes. In the end, Bo got the 1st D and the Stamps got a FG on what would otherwise have been a TO on downs.

Scott Milanovich would only say that the injury is to Ricky’s shoulder and they will be having it looked at. Hopefully it is nothing serious as Ricky missed 4 games last year with injuries and the way his season has been going he is on pace to set yet more records. Speedy recovery, Ricky.

I also hope that Kevin’s injury is not serious and that we see him back in the next game.

Final Score: 35 – 14 Calgary

And the QB merry-go-round continues in Winnipeg. Max Hall named the starter and taken out in the first Q....and who do the coaches put in ........Buckie. Now I have been a big supporter of Buck for years but I am beginning to think all those hits to the head have had an effect.........he looked....well lost out there yesterday. Maybe they should have put Justin Goltz in earlier.....but honestly, this team doesn't look like it is going anywhere positive this year.

The Ti-Cats continue to improve their game and most decidedly deserved the win - good to see Andy back and catching passes.

Was just a bit anxious about how my Riders would do against Mike Reilly yesterday - the guy is another Energizer Bunny.........lost count of the hits he took in a losing effort but give him huge creds for determination.....though he better stop leading with his head.

Glad to see they sat Jock out - injury or no injury, the guy needed some sideline time. Not at all happy with Diamond Ferri - this is two weeks in a row that he cost us yards - a total of 60 with yesterday's game - bench him till he cleans up his act, Corey. Lots of talk on CFL forums about Weldon Browns hit on Reilly. Watched every replay they showed but couldn't make a firm determination. However, if the league reviews the hit and determines it was to the head - then Weldon should be fined. Watched CC ream Dwight Anderson out after his obj cond penalty.........and here I thought DA had finally gotten the message.......here it is again, Dwight just STFU and play ball - nice interception BTW.

Kory Sheets is the first player in league history to hit the 1000 yard rushing mark in his first 8 games. He finished the day with 1058 total yards to his credit.

ROCK ON KORY - GO MAN GO!

Happy to see my guys win another one.

Really choked at the schedule this week - not for myself who will be watching the games from the comfort of my couch, but for the fans who traditionally look forward to the double-header LD matches that the league in their infinite wisdom have completely flubbed this year.

Here's the Sched:

Friday: Hamilton at BC - 7PM PST/10 PM/EST
Sunday: Winnipeg at Saskatchewan – 1PM PST/4 PM EST
Monday: Edmonton at Calgary – 2 PM PST/5 PM EST
Tuesday: Montreal at Toronto – 4:30 PM PST/ 7:30 EST

Not one single game on Sat - WTF! Then you look at the Mon vs TO game - TUESDAY??? - one has to wonder if the Argos are ever gonna get a break - they have trouble filling the stands now in spite of a good solid record then they are thrown a loop like this - is the CFL actively trying to work against the team?

Will be cheering hard for Hank the Cats in BC - tough game considering the Lions are at home but have faith that the Ti-Cats can bring what they need for the win. Hope to see CJ Gable get Hamilton's running game going leaving short yardage for Hank on 2nd and. Sam Giguere will not be playing in the game but Hank won't lack for capable receivers. Go Cats, Go!

A Ti-Cat win was not in the works last night as the BC Lions under Travis Lulay got off to an excellent start early in the 1rst Q and kept the pressure on Hamilton for most of the game. Travis answered his critics with his first +300 (26/36 for 359) yard game of the season, threw for 3 TDs and carried one over himself.

Smilin' Hank also had a +300 night completing 29 of his 36 for 352 and 2 TD passes.

The Lions defence proved to be much more resilient in this game - a definite improvement over last week's effort.

The Ti-Cats gave as well as they got for most of the game managing to keep the score within reach until the 4th Q when they pulled w/in 3. Hamilton decided to go with the on-side kick as the remaining seconds ticked off the clock but BC's Paris Jackson came up with the ball and it was all over the Ti-Cats. Final score: 29 to 26.

No games on the schedule today. Tomorrow the Bombers will play my Riders in the annual Labor Day Classic.

Every team has injuries to deal with this time of year. The Riders just happen to have them all piled up in one place.

Missing two big refrigerators from our O line, plus our running back. Without the running back, you encourage the blitz. They know we aren't running. A blitz our banged up O line can't stop.

Pretty hard for a pivot to put a game together when he's sacked every third snap.

Hope they figure something out, going to be tough slugging in BC...

Bit of a rough one in Toronto tonight. Only thing worth watching is Ricky Ray and his amazing completion percentage. I bet the Eski's are kicking themselves for that trade. I wonder what gas station the former GM from Edmonton that engineered that deal is working at now?
