Jiminez Injury

I've neglected to comment on the Jason Jiminez injury. The import tackle will miss the season opener, making a difficult question as to who should start there. Second year non-import Simeon Rottier is a possibility (altering the ratio equation) or relative newcomer import Matt Spanos.

So veteran offensive tackle and new signee is injured going into game one. I'm going to go ahead and give Jiminez the Tigercatatonia stamp of brittleness, just to get ahead of game. More games will be missed and this will become a problem.

One other prediction, if the Cats do start Spanos, watch out for a raft of illegal procedure calls.

In Bomber news, the starting quarterback this week will be Buck "the human concussion" Pierce. What's the over under number for the games Pierce starts before getting injured. I say three and that's probably being charitable.
