    What does "QK" mean? I know NKL = Nickelback and NT = Nose Tackle.

    No Marcel Young but at least Peters is still there for Reilly to pick on

    If we can keep Rainey in check, there is no reason to not expect a W.

    Elmimian being out for the Lions is a huge loss.
    Remember winning is not enough according to Len Rhodes, President of a professional sports team.

    I don't disagree, he's good at rushing the ball. I was just thinking of him trying to pick up the extra pass rusher and getting burnt.

    For sure, but Herdman has really stepped up. Playing outstanding , especially for a second year national.

    Re: GDT - Eskimos vs. Lions; 08/09/18

    Herdman has looked quite good against the run but a little lost in coverage since taking over for Solly. Hope we attack the inside of the Lions secondary as Peters has had a rough go and the usually reliable TJ Lee has struggled. Will be interesting to see if the Lions Dline has cause some havoc but will be great to have Sorensen back with Beard back to RG. The C/RG spot last week was where the Riders were getting a lot of their pressure and collapsing the pocket.

    Defensively, Lulay always scares me. Guy is a straight up baller. I hope Bazzie playing against his former team will show a bit more than he has thus far. I am excited to see how our secondary looks with Woodman, Hightower and Maston back there.

    Lulay is pretty one dimensional nowadays, so pressure is paramount. Need to be on his ass constantly. Having only Van and Rainey back there for blocking, could be a big boost to our D-Line.

    I'm not worried about it, our passing attack is tops in the league and Calvin is more than capable to fill in.

    Yeah that is a good point as I still sometimes think of Lulay as someone who can scramble but he is pretty stationary these days. IIRC, Van is a pretty good blocking back in his own right.

    I don’t see a big drop off from McCarty to our back ups anyway.
    The thin LB corps is more worrying to me given our recent history.

    I suppose. Blocking he will be - swing passes yes! Straight up running well thats a different story. that all being said he's a tough to dislike !

    I remember him doing it last year and looking pretty good at it.

    I love the looks of this roster.

    Neil King out, thank goodness.
    Money Hunter out, replaced with Hightower? Thank goodness.
    Get Moore back in without losing Mackie, Ceresna? Huge win.

    I wish we could get Bryant Mitchell more work. I thought he'd be more heavily involved. Credit Kenny Stafford's strong play for keeping him off the field.

    It's such a treat to visit another teams message board and be presented with such well-written thought out posts. I don't agree with everything they're saying about the Esks (I think we're doing just fine at NI receiver and our DLine hasn't suffered as much as they seem to think with the loss of Willis, Howard, Chick, etc.), but I'm assuming it's because they don't follow us as closely as their own team.

    I guess they don't get a lot of fans out to their games these days, but I now have a lot of respect for their online community.

    Thou art trying too hard and should take the lead of the more subtle posters in this forum and be more laid back, as the commoners would say.

    Is Elimimian being out the reason why they always give up 2nd and long? .....or that their D is whatever is more vanilla than vanilla. Yup, even I can tell...

    Who will be at the game tonight?

    They were giving it up even when Eliminiam is in there. They tend to go with a soft zone. Often leaving the far side wideout open if he sits down there or if a slotback moves out that way. I suspect tonight is the kind of game where Stafford or one of the national receivers like Behar could wind up with big numbers if the Oline gives enough time for Reilly to make that read and get the ball there...

    My wife and her sister returned Sunday from a week in Ireland. One of the bed and breakfasts they stayed at was close to a castle shown in the Game of Thrones . They sit down for breakfast , ready to start the day and across from them was a Sask. fan wearing his Rider jersey and Rider baseball cap. They asked the kind lady that was their host if there was anyone that could perform an exorcism to remove him, but alas , "no" was the answer. At least there was no watermelon for breakfast.
