    *Hopefully

    Should be a hardcore game!

    Just a note for any Eskimos fans heading down - the weather in Cowtown is only supposed to get up to 11, so be sure to dress warm. You know how chilly the benches at McMahon can get!

    Thanks for the well wishes!

    Seriously, I think today's game is a shocker in our favor. Just a feeling...

    Re: GDT: Battle of Alberta v1.0

    If we play like we did in the first quarter last week, it should be one hell of a game.

    If we play like we did in the second quarter last week, we might squeak it out if we get a couple bounces in our favor.

    If we play like we did in the second half last week, we'll get annihilated.

    Time for the real Eskimos to show up.

    Yup, if he establishes a solid run game, Bo Levi is going to have a field day finding open receivers. Shut Messam down - hit him hard. When you wear him down, he's usually running to the sidelines for on second down instead of staying on the field.

    In McMahon. GREAT seats! Thank you to CHED for making this possible.

    Sunny skies, but rather windy.

    Gets lots of time to grow based on the four holds.

    Good to see that the refs are not calling holding.

    We'd be doing better if we had a safety.

    Maybe that's how we get both Bell and White on the roster

    Stuffed him twice, we should have had the fumble.

    No one in the CFL is having success with the run, I am surprised Cowgary tried to run the ball twice.

    King was playing a bit shallow on that long throw. Watkins funnelled the receiver inside to what he thought was his help but King's shallow alignment gave the receiver a seam to run thru

    They will, on us. The first throw by Bozo Levi there was at least four holds.

    Messam takes a few yards to build up a head of steam which was the opposite of what Cornish was able to do. Doubt Messam will do much today

    99.99999999% of QB would not have recovered that ball.
