Stat Analysis, Stamps at Cats

Just a quick look at the stats for last game. Porter was 19 for 32 for 246 yards with a TD and a pick. Fairly pedestrian, however he also ran seven times for 63 yards which is pretty sweet. Cobb had a decent game, rushing for 85 yards on 17 carries as well as gaining 51 yards on five receptions for well over 100 yards of total offense. Bruce of course had 105 yards on six catches including 2 TDs. McDaniel also had 61 yards on four catches (who needs Chris Davis?). Curiously Corey Grant had two receptions for 18 yards, but fellow non-imports Stala and Bauman had none. Glenn passes to Stala, Porter, not so much. Maybe against Montreal, Stala's old team, it will be different.

Bolden and surprise, Sandy Beveridge led the Cats with four tackles each. Otis Floyd had three tackles and two sacks.

For Calgary, Burris was 10 for 25 for a truly anemic 114 yards. No picks at least. Copeland had four catches for 70 yards and Reynolds had 127 yards on 13 rushes and that was pretty much it for the Calgary offense. Hughes had seven tackles and two sacks to lead the Calgary defence.

Cats lost the turnover battle, but still won. All in all, the Cats are a far better team than in previous years and are especially powerful at home.
