    Discussion GDT - Esks @ Lions

    To call tonightís game massive would be a huge understatement.

    If the Esks win, they control their fate and the game against the Bombers will matter. Lose, and we need help next week or could be eliminated before our next game.

    If the Lions win, they clinch a spot. Lose, and they too will not control their fate and need help on the out of town scoreboard the next couple weeks.

    Lions are 6-1 at home, Esks are 2-6 on the road. That scares me.

    The changes to the Oline last week allowed Reilly time to be himself, letís hope they can handle BCs ferocious Dline. On the flip side, we need to keep Lulay uncomfortable and maybe get some clean hits on him as I donít think he is 100%.

    I am some kinda nervous right now!

    Run the football successfully, no turnovers, no big plays given up by a still suspect STs and secondary. That, plus execution of the offensive game plan should take care of business.
    GO ESKS GO!

    Been a while since I have been this nervous for a game as I am for this.

    Hope we see a balanced offense again tonight. Need to win the LOS battle and for the love of god....hold onto the damn ball!

    Off to the game now. So excited...where I live and with my travels, I don't get to see the Esks that often.

    I hope they reward my efforts
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Have a great time, Glen!!!
    Wish I was there too.

    The rest of us will be sitting in front of the tube. We'll be " … all in our places, with sunshiny faces….".

    Esks 50% on the season, 8 and 8. In theory, tonight anything can happen. Feeling a bit resigned to it all, still I am hoping for some magic.

    That it is, I went for my workout at Commonwealth yesterday morning and saw the boys doing their walk-through, they looked pretty dialed in from what I could tell.

    Reilly needs to pull that, probably had a first down if he did.

    Esks very lucky there, dumb penalty takes a pretty easy td off the board. Shaky start.

    Glad they called that...always iffy whether they do or not.

    Maybe it’s one of those games the bounces can go our way..

    Re: GDT - Esks @ Lions

    I had huge concerns about this roster coming into the game.

    The decision to leave Mercy Matson in but take off Colquhoun made absolutely no sense to me. Jason Maas has been better with his roster management in the second half of the year but if this gamble turns out to not be successful, it’ll probably be the nail in the coffin for him.

    Offence is picking up where they left off last time they were in BC Place.

    Also, the decision to go with 2 Canadian receivers was also questionable. Whenever that’s been the lineup, we’ve lacked explosiveness. It was the right decision to bench Hazelton, however I would have went with Schuler.
