    GAME THREAD / Week 17 / Toronto @ Edmonton

    So... Edmonton ended their losing streak last week and our winning streak ended against Saskatchewan. Reboot!

    We recently put Evan Foster and Curtis Newton back on the PR, which tells me that a NAT or two will be coming off the IR this week. Coombs seems most likely, and thank goodness for that.

    That's not good. I expect Whittaker to have a fire up his &$#@ due to sitting on the sidelines. He should have a decent game.

    Agreed, but he doesn't have the big play ability of Wilder. Argos Offence is going to have to be on point this week.

    Still not 100% official, but definitely the most likely scenario.

    Hopefully other Western teams will help the Argos. Calgary should easily beat Hamilton providing it is not starting to coast to the playoffs. Motivation should not be a problem for the Riders but an Ottawa win and an Argo loss puts Ottawa in first place.

    Calgary has won 15 straight following their bye week. I am very optimistic this will not end this week.

    In spite of anything that can happen this week, the Argos would still control their own destiny after this week. I really hope that they can win at least 2 of their last 3 and finish .500.

    I am just glad Edmonton got the monkey off their back before we play them. Just like I didn't like it having to go into Hamilton on Labour Day when they were 0 - 8. IMO, to win this game we need solid, consistent and disciplined play in all three phases of the game. The play of the O-line is especially critical. Time for the "real" Argos to step up. It is getting too late in the season for the "we are a good football team that is not playing good football" mentality. I believe they can do it.

    Weather for game day is a high of 7 degrees and sunny. Perfect day for autumn football.

    Good news! My son and I are heading out tomorrow for the Saturday game. Maybe we'll win the 50/50 draw. We could us the $250,000! Haha
    Don't be upset for the results you didn't get for the work you never did."

    Even match I think, depends on if Reilly regains his form this game or not I suppose.

    Vidal Hazelton is off the IR and starting for Edmonton tomorrow. Hopefully AK and/or Darby will make sure that we never hear his name.
