    Attention Esks vs Montreal, 08/18/18 - Game Thread

    https://twitter.com/EdmontonEsks/sta...69479556362240

    Lets Gooo Eskimos! Best depth chart of the season, in my opinion. I could argue that we need Behar starting instead of Adjei, but that's just pissing into the ocean.

    It's about time Bryant Mitchell gets an opportunity to start. We'll see if Hazelton is active and gets some reps.

    PS: If someone could teach me how to attach twitter links to actually show the depth chart instead of just posting the link, I'd be grateful. Most forums are simple and it's [tweet] link [/tweet] but this is an older forum and attaching the image wouldn't work for me.

    I'd love to see what Cooper can do.

    You'll get that opportunity Saturday. He's starting.

    One National (probably an O-lineman) and one International to sit. Hazelton?

    It still boggles my mind why the CFL insists on sitting two guys that are on the game day roster...they still get paid like everyone else and it doesn't make a difference in terms of the cap...to be forced to go in with one spare olineman just doesn't make any sense

    I suspect it will be Roy and perhaps Allen? I am confused though as I thought Allen was on the PR

    Have to say....I do not like seeing a single tailback on the roster. Especially when I look and see 8 (!!!) receivers on the roster. Don't like it one bit...

    thought so as well but I can't see them scratching him and going with only 2 ends, has to be a receiver.

    Maybe I'm mistaken, but isn't Cooper a tailback?

    CMC can move over in a pinch and one of his backups taking on FB.

    Montreal hasn't released its depth chart yet - I figure they're still trying to find 3 quarterbacks to put on the active roster.

    They may have to go that route. They only have two QB's under contract that are not on the 1 or 6 game IR.

    As someone who plays fantasy football and likes to exploit potential mismatches, I can tell you that the Als always take forever to release their depth chart. That organization is a complete **** show.

    I would figure whomever is playing against Montreal has their choice of mismatches.

    Let’s just say my roster is never locked in until I’ve seen the Als depth chart and their opponents that week.

    How’s the smoke in the city this morning? I’m a couple hours southwest in Alder Flats and she’s pretty thick here.

    All the weather reports about the smoke I'm looking at are awful. 10+ rating which is apparently as bad as it gets.

    Environment Canada calculates the air quality index and they do have an 18 hour forecast which currently says it will drop to 6 by 6pm and to 5 later in the night.

    The problem is that this isn’t like a weather forecast, it is extremely volatile. And at noon when the league is hoping to make a final decision, it will be at 10 plus.

    No idea how the league will handle this. Any old timers know of any precedence for a game being cancelled outright? If this game isn’t played at least by tomorrow, I don’t see when it can be played.
