    Steinberg's MMQB: Impressive outings highlight Week 2
    Pat Steinberg,

    Week 2 was marked with some really strong individual performances on both sides of the football. On top of that, the league’s only unbeaten team looked as cohesive as you’re going to see; while an offence we’re used to watching soar had major issues.

    All in all, we’ve got a ton to get to.

    All guns blazing

    Last week we made sure to highlight the defensive effort of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in their impressive victory over Edmonton. The Riders defence continually set their playmakers up with outstanding field positioning, allowing Darian Durant et al to strike with solid efficiency.

    In Saskatchewan’s 36-21 win over Calgary in on Friday night, field position wasn’t much of an issue.

    The Riders were just fine defensively once again in their home opener, but this time it was the Saskatchewan attack that took centre stage. Against a very good Calgary defence, I sure did like how Durant moved the football and made sound decisions from start to finish.

    The Riders pivot was accurate and looked like the guy who was so strong to start and finish 2012. This is the Durant they’re going to need in Regina to get back to the Promised Land, and through two games, so far so good.
