    Well, this could make things interesting. A couple of key QB's going down out West. Saskatchewan seems to have found their solution. We'll see what Calgary can do.

    Mitchell is the product of a system. Arbuckle will be fine, though I do think the Riders will win this one.

    Agreed. He won't have the wild success of the end of the BC game, but I don't think there's going to be much of a drop between Bo and Arbuckle.

    Of course, the Stamps seem to have dropped as a team already this year (but it's early days yet).
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Very true - although I think having a legit physical running back in William Powell has helped Stephen McAdoo put together a decent offensive plan. Tonight will test everything for certain.

    Calgary's D hasn't looked that good either though. Winnipeg and Edmonton seem to be the top D's in the league so far.

    Calgary’s stats on D are quite interesting so far. They are only giving up 7.3 yards per pass (4th) and 3.9 per rush (1st). It’s the sheer volume that’s hurting them as they have faced an average of 72 plays from scrimmage which is crazy high. The next worst is Montreal at 62.5. Esks are tops at 42.7.

    That surprises me because my impression of watching them is that they look a little soft. Reminds me of our D under Bene.

    Lots of people indicating Ottawa is his new home. Good pickup for them if true.

    There'll be a big meltdown on RF if this is true.

    By my count, that puts him back on the Labour Day game (they have a bye the week before)...but I might be wrong.

    Of course, he might be out longer...or shorter.

    That actually may be a good thing. If it's his first game back there could be some rust and if our defense keeps improving (or at least reigns in unnecessary penalties) it could be an advantage to the Esks.

    We actually play them once in the 6 games he's supposed to be out. As they play in Sask (win), in Hamilton, home to Toronto, in Ottawa, home against us and in Winnipeg. The first game he's eligible to come back will be home against Montreal, if I'm reading it right.

    That being said we should be facing Arbuckle in his 5th start, so we should have all sorts of film on him.

    So how many games does Arbuckle need to win for them to have a QB controversy in Calgary?

    Looking at the quality of teams they play in that stretch, the record probably isn't as much the issue as his counting stats. 3-3 is actually quite reasonable with the opposition they face. If he goes 5-1 against that schedule, people will start to question whether BLM is worth the cap space.

    But even then BLMs career record is just absurd so I can't see it becoming a full on controversy unless he goes 6-0 scoring 15+ touchdowns and only having a few INTs.

    That said, I won't put a lot of stock into Saturday's win. Kudos to him by responding with a good game. However, Sask's defence hasn't been nearly as strong without Jones' playcalling. And with little game film Arbuckle's tendancies were basically unknown.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    I was at the Argos game on Saturday at BMO. It’s really unfortunate that the camera view on TV is towards the non-bench (east) side. As you all know, that side has nobody sitting in the upper level & not as many people in the lower level (though Saturday had a good crowd on that side - probably because it was their “Family Day” promotion).

    The west side, though, it was packed, top & bottom! The south end was full, too. That in itself would be great marketing for them - seeing a ton of people have fun sells itself. I thought it would be empty!
    Aside: their DJ is awesome & the crowd totally gets into the music & it’s mainly hip hop. They’re playing music to fit their market.

    ALSO
    Tigerdar — I met your hero, Rod Black, after the game. He was so nice. Of course the 1st thing I said to him was “I love you on figure skating!”....so he was like “c’mon, we gotta hug now”...and then Duane was like “hey, I’m Duane!” haha ��. The bromance is real!

    #Greenwithenvy. I've heard he's a pretty nice guy I just started doing the Rod Black schtick cause life is too short and it's fun to make people laugh and honestly he's not the greatest but he's not the worst announced TSN has. He genuinely seems to get into and enjoy the game itself.

    Plus now they do have tape on Fajardo and defences know how to handle him we'll see if Cody can take it to the next level or not.

    Your schtick has actually helped me grow to not mind him. He's not the best sportscaster but he is what he is and now I just accept his flaws as Rodisms which are kind of funny.

    I wasn’t being sarcastic at all. I meant it in a positive way.
    He is super nice & you can tell he genuinely loves what he does. Also, it takes skill & knowledge to be able to do play-by-play for multiple different sports, especially ones as different as CFL football, basketball & figure skating.

    I agree, his goofiness has become kind of endearing to me in a weird way lol.

    It's a bit of a throwback/lost art. We've always had specialists, synonymous with a particular sport, but growing up, we also had a lot of generalists - guys that were able to step in and work in different sports. There aren't a lot of those today. Cuthbert, obviously has some versatility, but Black works across a wider spectrum I'd suggest. He's not my favorite play-by-play guy by a longshot, but I do appreciate the skill set and it's always great to hear that these guys are good with the fans.

    Cuthbert calls a great game - no one like him; I fear as he is getting older, he is having a hard time seeing the game he is calling. Seeing lots of screw ups in the past few years when it comes to identifying players.
