Take everything you hear about how lopsided the scorew were the last three times Hamilton visited and throw that out the window. Both teams are vastly different from then
Hamilton's offense is based on timing and quick throws. The Riders have to disrupt that timing to have a chance. Put a bunch of guys on on the line to confuse hte blockers, bring blitzes, get your hands up, jam receivers in the legal zone etc. If we play off receivers and don't disrupt Collaros he will hit those curls and slants all the way down the field
Don't expect a lot of running from Gable but he will be used in the passing game. When completions are made short of the first down marker, pursuit and tackling have to keep them short
I don't need to get into how scary it is going against Banks and how he must be contained.
Not a lot to say on offense. Let's see how Dan Clark handles himself against the big interior of the Tiger-Cats line. We need to see a push to create room for Messam and Allen. Looking forward to Ryan Smith and Demski back to add more weapons and variety to our offense. The variety comes from the different things Demski can do. Smith and Dressler inside can open up a lot of room for Getzlaf and Ricahrdson to move the chains.
Based on the start of this year, it's hard to be confident of any game at this point. Let's hope we see the team we had hoped going into the season and see a win today.
