Eskimos Shutout Argonauts

After losing two of their last three games, the Edmonton Eskimos were looking to get back in the ‘win column’ against the visiting Toronto Argonauts. Toronto stayed in Alberta after playing in Calgary last Thursday while the Eskimos flew home right after the Montreal game. It was a short week for the Eskimos and to...

Eskimo Offence Stumbles in Loss to Alouette’s

The Eskimos defeated the Montreal Alouette’s in the first week of the season 32-25. The offence put up 447 yards passing, 161 yards rushing and had the ball for over 34 minutes. That was then…and this is now! The Montreal Alouette’s are not the same team the Eskimos faced in week one and they were...

Ricky Ray to go on the Wall of Honour

When Ricky Ray arrived in Edmonton back in 2002, he was listed as the third string quarterback behind incumbent Jason Maas and Bart Hendricks. As I watched that training camp, there was one thing that was clear. Ricky Ray had a ‘touch’ that allowed him to put the ball where only his receiver could get...

Eskimos Crush Lions!

Coming off the bye week the Eskimos were looking to rebound after a tough loss against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. While the offence had more than 400 yards in that game, they failed to find the end zone and had to settle for seven field goals. The offence would have to be much better this...

Eskimos Lose to Bombers

The Edmonton Eskimos were in Winnipeg to take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to start week three in the CFL. The Bombers had last week off and when coming off the bye week, they are 5-0 the last couple of years. We witnessed yet another slow start by the Edmonton Eskimos while the Winnipeg Blue...

Eskimos Tame Lions

It was the game many Eskimo fans have been waiting for…the return of Mike Reilly to Edmonton to take on his former team. After spending six years as the starting quarterback of the Eskimos, Reilly signed with the B.C. Lions in the offseason.  He was not the only one to leave Edmonton and find a...

Eskimos Open Season with a Win

If there was one question I had during training camp, it was how long would it take for the Eskimo offense to get on track? A brand new quarterback and brand new receivers learning a new system often takes weeks for everyone to get on the same page.  I was pleasantly surprised to see Trevor...

Eskimo Make Final Cuts

With all of the personnel changes experienced in the offseason, fans were anxious to see what the final roster would look like once the final cuts were announced. Of course there were the big name ‘free agents’ like Trevor Harris, Greg Ellingson, Don Unamba and Larry Dean who were going to make the team, but...

Eskimos Lose 20-3 in Final Preseason Game

The one thing I expected from the Eskimo offense in the preseason was it would take time for the new personnel to learn a new offensive system. With the departure of Mike Reilly and the entire starting receiving corps, it meant almost half of last year’s offense would be different. In last week’s game against...

Training Camp – Day 3

The Edmonton Eskimos were the busiest team when ‘free agency’ started back in February. Already knowing Mike Reilly would be returning to the B.C. Lions, they went out and signed QB Trevor Harris, SB Greg Ellingson, WR DaVaris Daniels, OL SirVincent Rogers, LB Larry Dean, LB Don Unamba, LB Jovan Santos-Knox and CB Anthony Orange....
