Anthony Calvillo will be the starting QB for the Alouettes this afternoon. The Als were 1- 1 during his absence. Ron MacPherson had a great game last week against the Ticats. He was more successful then Santos was against the Lions 2 weeks ago.
Q1 15:00– Rod Black again? I miss Cuthbert and Miller
Q1 14:38– AC completes his 1st pass
Q1 11:00 —Trestman rolls dice on 3rd down and succeeds…..AC looking good so far
Q1 9:37 – Calvillo 5/8 on the opening drive
Q1 5:57– Great start for the Als in this game. Diamond Ferri a great job replacing Maypray on that kickoff
Q1 1:01– The Alouettes are 2 for 2 on 3rd down conversions. Why did he take a shot to Cobourne ???
Q2 13:31— What a great pass by Calvillo to Watkins. AC looks like he is 100%
Q2 10:25—Nothing working for the Eskimos
Q2 6:16– Even though Calvillo has completed less then 50% of his pass attemps, he still looks good
Q2 5:54— They must challenge that play. I’m confused…incomplete pass was the call on the field?
Q2 3:43— Now the streak goes to 138 for Cahoon
Q2 0:46— Another pass interference call against the Als
Q2 0:24– That definitely was not a TD
Q2 0:05– This one was close…Eskimos challenging the call…If it goes in the Als favour, this will kill the Eskimos.
The first half was dominated by the Alouettes. Calvillo 14/27 for a total of 233 yards. Diamond Ferri has had a great first half with 1 TD, 1 INT, and 1 sack. Nothing working for the Eskimos on offence or defence. They scored their only points at the end of the first half on a questionnable call made by the replay booth.
Q3 13:45— The Eskimos started the half great but a very bad throw by Maas ends their drive.
Q3 6:45— Not much action in this quarter
Q3 4:00— AC throws his first INT of the game. Nothing to worry about.
Q3 0:00– I don’t know why players get dumb penalties like that sometimes. No points scored by either team in the 3rd quarter. Hopefully some more action in the 4th.
Q4 12:24 — Have the Eskimos done anything right in this game?
Q4 9:38— Will the Eskimos make this game exciting if they score?
Q4 8:17—I guess we will never find out
Q4 4:49— I can’t imagine what must be going through Eric Tillman’s mind right now.
Post game thoughts
The Alouettes completely dominated the first half of this game. Anthony Calvillo looked great in his return after missing the last 2 games to injury. Diamond Ferri had a great game with 1 TD, 1 INT, and 1 sack. The Eskimos scored a questionnable TD at the end of the first half and their second TD was scored at the end of the 4th quarter. The Als face the Bluebombers in Winnipeg on Friday night.
