Wednesday night Kerry Joseph was a Cat killer, as he threw three touchdown passes in the Argonauts 30-17 win over the Tiger Cats. Joseph also went threw for 227 yards while completing 14 of his 29 passes. He was back in the MVP form that he had in Saskatchewan. The Argos quarterback received some support from running back Jamal Robertson as he ran for 125 yards and a touchdown.
The good news for Ticats fans is that as they game progressed their team got better. The first quarter was when the Agros did most of the damage in the scoreboard with three touchdowns from Kerry Joseph's passes.
Quinton Porter had trouble getting the ball off and did not mirror the Agros quarterback success. It does appear that Porter and Ticat back up quarterback Kevin Glenn have a good working relationship, as they were seen on the sidelines going over strategy together numerous times.Also, wide receiver Prechae Rodriguez and Quinton Porter do show the potential of a Calvillo and Cahoon connection, but only time will tell if this is the case in Hamilton.
For the most part the special teams played very well for the Tiger Cats. Kicker Nick Setta had one errant kick in the 3rd quarter, but aside from that he was his usual steady self. I hope to see Setta in a Ticat uniform for many years to come.
I know it may be difficult for the long suffering fans in Hamilton, but give this team one or two more games to come together as a team. They did show glimpses of playing some very good football in the near future. Hope may have been a dangerous thing years past in Hamilton, but this season this team may finally fulfill that hope.
