Quarterback Trevor Harris injured in Ottawa. If he's out of the lineup for an extended period the RedBlacks are going to be in a world of hurt.

Drew Tate the back up is now the starter & he possibly will play well.
Redblacks & Als both lost in their recent games & they will face each other in Montreal.
Als are in 1st place even though they have a losing record  ;D
Honestly do not like Durant's QB style of play. Tate proved in the past that he can "Put it together".
He seems to get frustrated fast if the offence is stalled.
He starts yapping & shaking his head.
Als should win only because they have lost too many. They will put in the extra energy to get the monkey  ( & media/fans ) off their back. The teams in the east are not very good & honestly they all have QBs that are not that good. Too much back drop style & they have to rush their passes.
Hamilton QB change though is an improvement. He moves & scrambles well when he feels "heat"
CFL's games 90 % of them are quite dramatic & exciting nevertheless.

Horse vs Lion
Lion should win everytime.
Sadly Lions were declawed  & teeth pulled out.
Horrible horrible horrible one sided game.
Lions defeated themselves thus Stamps just kinda cruised along.
Lions only reply was dishing out some hard hits.
Jennings was back to his old ways.
How does a guy with a good arm & having good recievers only manage 10 pts ?
Put Lulay back in ( back leg & all )  :o
Or put Wally B in at QB.  :o
They lost but it was the way they lost.
Looked like a pre season game with 2nd stringers.
Even Wally looked totally out of it.
He just had a blank look & lip twitching.
Lions are in last place.

Didn't expect the Lions to win and they didn't. Defence played well but the offence couldn't muster any offence. Jennings was very hesitant, after throwing his first interception. (threw 3 picks for the night). He had "happy feet" and held onto the ball too long. Stamps sacked Jennings 4 times in the game, 3 in the first quarter alone.

Yep your right.
Offence was terrible.
Sacks & intercepts.
Jennings was rushed on most pass plays.
If plan A is not working go to plan B.
Quick hitters / short passes, screens, pass to the running back,scramble left or right immediately after the snap.  After a lot of short passes,draws,screens then surprise them with longer throws.

You would expect that to negate the pass rush but NO. Lions didn't throw a screen pass the entire game.  Have never been impressed with Khari Jones play calling. They had the running game established in the 1st quarter but inexplicably they went away from it. I'm a firm believer in Ron Lancaster's mantra that if something works, keep doing it until they show they can stop it.

Went into a sauna in Regina SK & who is in there...Ron Lancaster in the buff.
He had recently retired from being a SK Roughrider QB.
He even tried his hand at being a local Regina CBC newscaster.
If memory serves me correctly he was a coach for Edmonton & Hamilton. Did he coach the Sk Riders? Not sure but believe he did not.
Yes the Lions did not throw any screens & as mentioned why did they get away from the run game?
Gotta mix it up. Brutal game & I bet even the hometown Alberta fans wanted a bit more action or fight from the Lions thus to make the game more interesting.
Als QBs Durant again bombed. Thought they would do better & get a W to get the monkey off their back.
Now they have a gorilla on their behinds.
Ottawa wins with their 2nd & 3rd stringers at QB.
The 3rd stringer really looked poised. Moved the ball well.
TO wins over Esks. Challenge flags helped TO big time but failed the Esks.
Head hit on Esk QB & not called !!!!

Lancaster never coached the Riders.
