Montreal at Hamilton, Aftermath

Montreal at Hamilton

I didn't comment right after the Ticats 27 to 6 loss, mainly because I was irritated at the Cats not getting it done against the Alouettes without Calvillo in the lineup. I'll give credit to Montreal's backup quarterback McPherson who did what he had to do to win. Certainly 21 for 37 passing for 238 yards with one TD and a pick is pretty mediocre, but 16 rushes for 121 yards is fantastic. McPherson constantly made the Ticat defensive line look stupid by making big runs up the middle. This possibly contributed to Hamilton signing Stevie Baggs this week.

Glenn, after a great game on Labour Day, plainly sucked last game. Going 11 for 27 for 159 yards with a pick, numbers that even Michael Bishop would laugh at. Amazing that Glenn could go from such a high completion rate one week to the depths the next. Cobb had four rushes for 59 yards, but a lot of those yards came right at the end.

Personally I thought the turning point was the failed fake punt. Getting that would have made a big difference in my mind. Hopefully the Cats will do better this week in BC.

A set of photos from the game is available here.
