I'm officially pressing the panic button for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. They have not shown anything on either side of the ball whatsoever. Masoli has not been his pre-injury self, sitting at a measly 5.8 yards per attempt with 4 interceptions. The O-line is also not doing him or the replacement Dane Evans any favours, with the Hamilton QBs taking 7 sacks in 2 games. The saving grace for Hamilton could be their schedule, as there is a real chance that this run of Winnipeg, Saskatchewan and next week Montreal are the three best teams in the league.
Probably wrongly, I'm still somewhat optimistic on Edmonton. They have been able to move the ball in both of their games, but cannot seem to avoid hugely negative plays (pick 6s, punt return touchdowns) and continually settle for field goals. Trevor Harris has a great track record (not in the redzone though), but it has been rough for him to start, taking 7 sacks in 2 games along with 3 picks. It still seems like all of the talent is there, they just need a few bounces to get rolling.
As for Calgary, I'm not 100% sure what to make of them. I did feel as though I was low on them coming into the year, as my model has never been a big Bo Levi fan. With that said, it clearly seems as though Bo Levi is not completely healthy, but the defence has been as big of an issue, giving up 10 yards per pass attempt. Now, it looks as if Michael O'Connor will start, making the year even more of an uphill battle.
