Landry’s 5 takeaways from Week 6

3 6 0

Hello, Montreal Alouettes. I’m impressed by your trickery. A reverse coupled with a throwback to the QB? Magnifique. To me, football is like a great cut of beef. It doesn’t need anything more than a spritz of salt and pepper on it and I can be completely satisfied. However; change things up with a little melted Gorgonzola on it once in awhile? Yes, please.

Here are this week’s takeaways.

So you thought Solomon Elimimian’s debut with the Roughriders was a little underwhelming?

I dunno, he did have five tackles against Calgary in Week 4. But maybe it wasn’t vintage Sol, sure.

After that first excursion of the season and a bye week of prep to get him feeling really comfy-cozy in the middle of the Saskatchewan defence, Elimimian looked like the guy we’ve grown accustomed to, all hellbent for leather (I like that phrase even though I admit I haven’t the faintest idea what it really means) and insistent that he have a say in almost every play.

Seven tackles, he had against the Lions (two of them for losses) and a quarterback sack too.

Elimimian may have had a little extra something to prove in that game, taking on his old team a few months after being released.

But I suspect it’s something more than that. I suspect that Solomon Elimimian has lots left in that gas tank of his.........
