Over the past eleven seasons in the CFL, the first place team in the East scored 526 points on average. I think the Toronto Argonauts should try doing that. Just saying. My Roughriders hung 43 points on the Tiger-Cats last night in Hamilton. First place in the west requires 546 points. After ONE game, my Roughriders are projected to finish the season with a phenominal 774 points.
The Argos’ mission to finish first in the East shows great promise. Ricky Ray arrived at Commonweath Stadium in Edmonton today with receiver Jason Barnes at his side. They talked about that cracker commercial that keeps showing up on TSN, the philosophical musings of Lau Tzu, and how it might nifty if they hooked up for some big plays later that evening. Corey Boyd needs to touch the ball 15-20 times, and Chad Owens moving inside to slot needs to… errr, be Chad Owens. All of this will be doable, given that Head Coach Scott Milanovich, an offensive guru, is calling the plays.
Kickoff happened 67 seconds ago in Edmonton. Let’s see how things unfold.
