Ticats Victory!

Well that was enjoyable, especially after consuming three large mugs of 50 at the Prince Eddie before proceeding to the game. For me the TSN turning point was the fake punt for a first down by Wilbur. Sure the TD off the blocked punt just before the end of the half was important, but continuing drives, keeping the defence on the field is what wins are made of and that's what that fake punt did.

Excellent completion percentage for Glenn, going 27 for 33 for 313 yards with a TD and pick each. Once could make a decent argument for Glenn being the best quarterback half way through the season. Nice play by Stala picking up 90 yards on seven passes and continuing his march to 1000 yards on the season. I wasn't really sure what he was trying to do with his celebration after the TD, but the hacky sack is hard to top. Cobb only had 20 yards on ten carries, but sometimes the run sets up the pass.

Cleo "the Party" Lemon was actually decent statwise except for the three picks, passing for over 300 yards (although losing teams often pad their passing stats at the end).

A few worries on the injury front, especially after reading this in the National Post:

I'm hoping that Jimenez is ready to start next week, especially if offensive tackle Belton Johnson is out too.

The million dollar question next week is whether Calvillo will start for Montreal next Saturday. I hope the Cats get a good crowd whether Cavillo plays or not. Looks like we won't have to worry about the Alouettes leading special teams tackler next week, due to uh, a bar fight. Getting dummied unconscious outside a bar is never fun.

Toronto lucks out by playing BC next week, which could mean for a tight race for first in the East.
