The Re-Match. Argos – Ticats Preview

Toronto – It wasn’t the best week in Argo Land. We started off with a tough loss in Hamilton, and then we found out that Ricky Ray was lost for up to 6 weeks with a fractured rib. Ironically that was the good news. Early reports indicated that it was a possible punctured lung, which would have put him out for the season.  Now the offense turns to Dan LeFevour.

The Argos have a LeFevour and there is only one cure…

Yes Cowbell will help but all LeFevour needs to do is manage the offence. Take what the Hamilton defense gives him and get the ball in the hands of the play makers. Spencer, Shaw, Gurley, Elliott, Durie, Coombs, Wylie, Hazelton and Whitaker. Everyone on that list can make a play on their own. They just need the ball in their hands. While Ray has one of the most accurate deep balls in the league, the key now is Yards After Catch.

We Never Really Liked Saved By the Bell Anyway

Zach Collaros is on tear since he returned from injury, averaging over 370 yards passing per game and 3 touchdowns per game. The Zach Attack must be stopped. We may be “Friends Forever” off the field, but between the white lines, they are enemy number one. Preppy must be stopped. In order to end the Saved By The Bell references the D has to do their job. Pressure Collaros so that he can’t go through his reads. Limit coverage mistakes because the ticats will make us pay. Make Zach look like Screech.

Back the Ice Cream Truck up to BMO Field

When your starting quarterback goes down, your teams best friend is your place kicker. Lirim Hajralahu is that guy. The likelihood of your backup QB lighting the world on fire is not something you bet on. Obviously, if that does happen, we will gladly accept it. But a game managing QB produces more Field Goals than TDs, which is why we need Lirim to kick for lots of Ice Cream.
