CONTRIBUTIONS FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS

Of all the stories ending Week 14, what the Toronto Argonauts have accomplished is the best. To win four road games all in dramatic second-half efforts says a lot about the players and the organization. To study quarterback Zack Collaros is interesting. He really does not have dominant physical skills but an internal level of self-confidence that is evident and responds to pressure as well as any 10-year established quarterback. In the last four games, Collaros is 33-38 (86 per cent) with four touchdowns, a quarterback rating of 142.5 with four straight game-winning drives. He has gone from an unknown to a respected performer and serious consideration for employment in Ottawa next season. Football players are always judged by performance with tangible qualities and intangibles; those you can see and are visual and those that are more the make-up of the person that you only notice when the pressure is on. Collaros has some very good intangible qualities as a football player. Yes, the Argos still have issues with first-half execution, but four wins without Chad Owens is an excellent accomplishment. Are they peaking too soon? No, they have many ways to improve and with that coaching staff, they will. Of all the stories ending Week 14, the most painful to watch was the absence of energy and detail with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. I dont mean this in a derogatory way although I know it will be perceived as so but when your first pass is an interception to begin a game and your first pass in the second half is also an interception, thats comical. In my present occupation, I sometimes get the impression that people perhaps think we enjoy watching the self-destructive train wreck that the Bombers are. We dont. In our perfect world, all eight teams play excellent football all the time and every game is won in overtime by the home team. Not going to happen. Watching the Bombers struggle is also watching revenue lost in an exceptional stadium and the significance of that is genuine. I could go through all the positions of need and evaluate but that would be repetitive. Basically, you start from the ground up and make a plan that you put your heart and soul into. That is happening now with five games to go and, as silly as it sounds, is an excellent opportunity to establish a new beginning. For the players on the present roster, dont lose your intensity or commitment. Everyone is watching all the time. In Hamilton, the next two games are make-or-break for the season as they are home-and-away against the Argonauts. If they were to win both, everything in terms of confidence would change. There will be a lot of discussion about Henry Burris and his three interceptions but after looking at the video in detail, one was his fault, one was not and one the receiver could have made a better play on the ball. With the Alouettes, they broke the cycle of losing, but for the Riders, the cycle moved through game #4 and is now getting serious as September moves into October. As for the Eskimos, they do not respond well to adversity or prosperity. They should have beaten Toronto and quarterback Mike Reilly should have been taken off the field immediately. Torontos Clevon Laing will be fined for the helmet-to-helmet hit but what good does that do now? That damage is done. Thomas DeMarco looked good in B.C. and John Hufnagel of the Stampeders has the inside track for CFL Coach of the Year. Two critical questions this week: Can Hamilton get back to 7-7 with a win in Toronto? A 10-win season is respectable and still a possibility. And can the Riders beat the Lions in B.C? They are only one game behind with five to go and need a home playoff game to make a home Grey Cup game a possibility. Adidas NMD Womens Sale . They showered him with "MVP! MVP!" chants.

And my friends in the media are already asking That Question. But Graham DeLaet isnt ready to look beyond his first tee shot on Saturday. After equaling the course record on Friday, you can forgive everyone for getting a little excited about the possibilities. You know, the chance that this damn 60-year drought can come to an end. It would be a great moment for Canadian golf, a great moment for DeLaet and, selfishly, a great moment for the keyboard tappers and microphone holders who would no longer have to ask That Question any longer. But lets back up just a bit here. Its not Sunday, yet. DeLaet ignited everyones imagination of just what the coronation might look like by posting a smooth 63. For the first time in a while, his putter behaved as he used his flat stick just 25 times when on the green. That, he said, was the result of some work he did earlier in the week with short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. The two of them came up with one small change that, as it often does with something as confounding as putting, made a big difference. "My putting coach was here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said DeLaet. "We put in some good work and changed a little bit of how I was seeing lines. I was picking spots in front of the ball instead of picking spots at the hole. Just something a little bit different and it was nice to see some putts rolling in." To a certain extent, DeLaet will always live and die with his putting. Its his Achilles heel in an otherwise bulletproof golf game. Just look at the stats for this year hes second in greens in regulation, 11th in driving distance, fifth in total driving and wait for it 137th in strokes gained, putting, the key indicator of how a player performs on the greens. But on this day, he was pure. He drained a 30-footer on 14 for a birdie, another one from 21 feet on the first hole and sunk a 20-footer to save a bogey on the 18th hole. That last one might be the most vital of the mmany that found the bottom of the cup.dddddddddddd Playing his ninth hole of the day and already four under for the round, DeLaet drove his ball into the water, took a drop then hit his next shot up the fairway. From there he lofted a wedge onto the green. "I was kind of counting a double when I was walking up to the 18th green," he said, "so to hole that putt was a nice bonus." Its been a while since DeLaet has enjoyed such a good day with his putter, but he wasnt alone in getting the balls to drop. "It was definitely fun to see some putts roll in," he said. "All of us were kind of making putts all day." All of us would be his group of Matt Kuchar and Jim Furyk; the trio combined for 22 birdies. Furyk also tied the course record, held by Scott Verplank and David Morland IV. "There was just so much momentum," he stated. "The crowd was getting behind us. Even Matt and Jim, the crowd was starting to get behind them. They were just seeing such good golf all day. You definitely start feeding off each other and you almost expect to hole putts just to keep up." While DeLaet loved the emotion displayed by the fans at Royal Montreal the vast majority on the property seemed to be following his group and the way he played, he was careful not to start thinking about buying any silver polish just yet. The player who has yet to win a tournament on the PGA Tour is savvy enough to realize that it might take two more course records to get his name on the trophy. "I know theres going to be a little bit of added pressure because Im in good position heading into the weekend," said DeLaet. "But at the same time were only half way through this thing and if I can put something together like this [Saturday] then maybe we can start talking about that." Maybe for him. But in the brasseries and bistros and the dix-neuf holes, theyre already chatting. As they have been for oh, about 60 years. ' ' '
