He hasn't practised all week and O'Shea says that they're still evaluating his injury (whatever that means). If he can't go Kongbo will probably take his place.

Just a few comments as I kept away from here since the Thursday game.

I was as furious as anyone after the Toronto loss.

2 week ago, we were 5-0 and on top of the world. Then we got to Hamilton and within a few minutes of kickoff Masoli marched into the endzone virtually unopposed and we were behind for the first time since half time of Week 1. Minutes later we were down 14-0 and despite Masoli being done and their offense doing little for 55 minutes, we manage to give that very winnable game away by turning over the ball like we didn't even want it and just looking completely inept.

That was a mulligan, a wake up call, and a call to arms against our weaknesses that need to be immediately addressed. While it was hard to see us snatch defeat from the jaws of victory (yeah, I know we were never ahead in that game, but the Bombers of weeks past would have won that game), I could live with it. We weren't going to go 18-0, as we kept saying even after the wins piled up.

Laying the beat down on Toronto wasn't even going to make me feel better about the direction of the team because they were hot garbage in every game they played. It was supposed to be a free space on the bingo card. I remember telling myself that I would be mad if the game was even close. I don't need to recap what happened, but the last half of football played by this team is just something that good teams don't let happen ever.

Mulligans and excuses are over now, and after a weekend of healing spiritually, I have decided that in my mind, those two losses (or at least the Toronto one in particular) can be buried with a convincing win against the Stamps. Before, after beating down TO I could live with losing a good game to the Stamps. Not this one though. They need to very clearly make up for it to get on track.

Completely agree with everything you've said here.

I was sure that was about Jeffcoat not Jefferson?

Only place I've seen anything about Jefferson is here. Might be a case of wrong J name.

If we were even remotely concerned both are out, at least one reinforcement would be brought in as we would then only have 2 healthy ends

That?s what I figure as well. I?ve heard nothing regarding Jefferson at all.

Sorry I got the wrong Jeff. Jeffcoat is probably out but I'm pretty sure Jefferson came back to the game after 3 plays so I think that he's okay.

Then we'll see Roh starting with Kongbo rotating in at times. We don't have another import DL available at the moment.

I sure hope Jeffcoat is not out too long...he is quietly becoming one of the best all-around DE?s in the league.

Our oline will be tested. That may be the key to the game. 

With a D like Calgary gimmick plays will not work.  It is all about the execution.  This is is a real test for all on offence.  Curious to see what happens.

Defenses have to defend against gimmick plays as well. All offensive plays involve out executing the defense so I wouldn't say those won't work.

In fact because we have some unusual plays on offenses that gives defenses more work to do preparing to play us.

Agreed....my thoughts precisely!
