    Friday Night Football!

    Regular Season Week 4
    Edmonton @ BC

    Date: Friday July 20th
    Time: 7:00 local/8:00 Calgary
    TV/Radio: TSN / Edmonton Radio / BC Radio / ESPN3.com (US Coverage)

    Now to see who really is what. Both teams walk into the closed BC Place with 2-1 records and were expected to be at opposite ends of the standings by this point of the season. BC was the popular kid on the media block for a Grey Cup berth and Edmonton with the shipping of Ricky Ray for a box of deflated footballs were expected to be 0-3.

    Tonight we'll see how good the Eskimo defense is when facing a strong offense like what BC brings to the field. At the same time BC has a challenge (on paper) for their All Star defensive backfield that hasn't necessarily played at the level that was expected back in March against some quality receivers. The follow up question is which QB will be attempting to find those cracks in the defense? Jyles hasn't put up numbers and has been pulled several times already in favor of Kerry Joseph. We may even see Matt Nichols in there at some point.

    Can't see the Esks pulling this one out with the qbs they have. I expect that the BC defense will smother the Esks offense. On defense the Lions have too many weapons for the Esks to defend. Especially a tired Eskimos defense in the fourth quarter being on the field all night with all the two & outs their offense is going to give them. Tillspin completely ****** his team over trading Ray. He is an idiot.

    If a totally dinged up Winnipeg replete with screwed up coaching can put up a fight vs. a fairly health Toronto then anything is possible. The Esks need Jyles/Joseph to have an above average game while their defense forces Lulay to a below average game. If that scenario materialized, an Esk victory is possible. Geroid also has a finger problem.

    Finally heard the Friday Night Football song. Fun to hear Mike Richards voice on there but not a fan of the song itself. I know a few songwriters that could've created something more meaningful.

    Can't wait to see where the tone lies with this game. First couple of series will set things up for the rest of the night.

    What the hell is wrong with TSN?

    It's been down for 5 minutes.

    Crazy. Weird to think you guys in the home nation can't get the coverage!

    Another crazy stat is the 13 straight wins by the home team this year.

    Who runs a pitch out of a shotgun on 2nd and short? Charles was 10 yards behind the LOS when he got the ball. Stupid play call.

    That was a very well executed play. Andrew Harris took that and flew!

    Then the next play it reminded me of Jerome Messam last year bouncing off a big hit on a screen pass. Harris is making strides this year. Big strides.

    Calgary high school product Marco Iannuzzi scores the first TD of the game.

    Edmonton has worked on their passing game. Needs to put in the same number of hours into their 2nd and short game. Ugly play calls there.

    It's back on now. They had a technical problem.

    Jyles knocked out of the game....concussion testing on the sideline.

    Not checking yet but is that every single game that at least 2 QBs have played for Edmonton?
