Calgary is just too inconsistent to be laying this many points, especially offensively. Every once in a while some guys have a really outstanding game that makes everyone think this is an explosive offense but that's not really the case. Since Kevin Glenn took over in Week 2 here are his yards (and TD's) in each game: 172(2), 267(0), 385(4), 245(0), and 141(1). He's had one off the charts game and a whole lot of ho hum play in his other 4 games. Now look at the run game over that same span that had done nothing (and I repeat NOTHING before last week), here are the Stamps total team rush yards: 29, 72, 89, 57, and 233. Now which of those numbers does not resemble the others? So did they really turn the run game around last week like everyone thinks or was it simply because the faced an absolutely disgraceful TiCats defense? The same TiCats defense that just gave up over 500 yards to Winnipeg! and the same one that is allowing 6.5 yards per carry
. For an inconsistent offense I'm not really expecting a breakout game against a Toronto defense that ranks 2nd in the league.
On the other side the Argos are more consistent offensively. You usually know what you're going to get out of Ray and that is steady but unspectacular play which is something I want with a dog. Ray has had 4 very good games this year and two stinkers. Off his other stinker he bounced back with 325 yards and 3 TD. Last week he played one of the worst games of his career and I expect a veteran that is usually pretty consistent to bounce back, he has earned that respect. I don't care that Boyd is gone it is most likely a big positive anyway. By all accounts he was a cancer in the room and not well liked. Kackert filled in for Boyd last season and had the exact same yards per carry average as Boyd. Plus, Kackert is a much better blocker which is something Boyd was terrible at.
