Cat Victory Aftermath

The Cats winning 40 to 3 was impressive, especially without having Bruce for a lot of the game, but really the game meant little to Montreal. Statwise Glenn had a great game going 22 for 31 for 371 yards and two TDs. Bruce only picked up one reception for 12 yards, leaving him at 1303 yards for the season, still good for the league lead, but a ways away from Tony Champion's Ticat record.

Stala caught four catches for 35 yards leaving him at 955 yards and still an excellent shot at 1000 yards. McDaniel caught 2 passes for 32 yards leaving him at 918 yards overall. 1000 is still easily possible.

Bauman had six catches for 147 yards and two TDs. Where did that come from? Oh yeah, he's a free agent at the end of this year. I say he signs in TO.

Cobb had nine rushes for 30 yards and a TD, which is pretty sucky average wise, but then he grabbed four passes for 73 yards so you can't really fault him. A yard is a yard.

Excellent effort overall. The Cats went for the jugular when they got ahead like good teams do. The Cats can wrap up a home playoff spot if they can beat Calgary on the road this week. One wonders if Bruce will be playing.

Nice article from the Montreal Gazette on Stevie Baggs. Over the Bob Young era, there's been some midseason NFL signings that didn't really go anywhere. Printers and Keith certainly come to mind. Baggs looks like the real deal. The $400,000 over the life of the deal is interesting. I'm guessing that's the rest of 2010, 2011 and 2012, for an average of $133,000 per year. The Cats probably had a chunk of salary cap room left for 2010 and used it for Baggs.

There's still a chance that Bauman can get signed by the Cats though. He's been on the bubble all year but if Glenn can connect with him regularly the way he connected on Friday, it would make sense for them to sign. Having two strong Canadian receivers, plus Bruce and Mann, would make our offence pretty solid next year.

Baggs is probably the best TiCats player on the field right now. It's not just the turnovers, but how highly dangerous he is on every single play. As midseason signings go, he's an absolute godsend.
