Where to begin. Just an all around great game. But I have to start in a place where I have been very critical all season.
Kevin Glenn once again had a very efficient afternoon. He was hitting Receivers left and right, and looked very comfortable in the pocket. This is becoming so commonplace that I feel no need to point it out, but Glenn deserves all the kudos passed his way. It's nice to have a real QB behind Centre for the Cats.
Arland Bruce gets held in check? No problem, Dave Stala and Marquay McDaniel step up. Teams can take away Bruce, and someone else will kill them. The talent at WR is out of this world.
The Defensive Front Seven continue to do everything asked of them. Garrett McIntyre is quickly starting to become one of the best D-Linemen in the entire CFL. He has a motor that doesn't stop, and he just has a knack for getting to the QB.
Sadly, even in victory, this wasn't a flawless game. Once again, DeAndra' Cobb showed he is not the same player this year as he was last year. He just doesn't get the job done. He has spurts, but it looks like he is very much mired in a sophomore slump.
What more can I say? This Classic was classic. It was just an awesome afternoon. I'm hoarse after cheering from the time I got to the game until I walked in my house after the traditional Victory Slurpee.
The Tiger-Cats are now riding a four-game winning streak, have jumped the Argos for second place (and now own the tiebreaker over them as well), and the game this Saturday against Montreal is now the biggest regular-season game for the Cats in I don't know how long. On Saturday, the Cats will be playing for first place in the East Division. I can't tell you the last time the Cats were atop the East. Heck, I can't tell you the last time they were even close. Today, even though it was the Labour Day Classic, is just the appetizer for next week's main course.
BRING ON THE ALS!
Oh yeah, and.....
