Eskimos Face Big Challenge Against Argonauts Despite Record

Published

on

The Toronto Argonauts may be winless this season, but the Edmonton Eskimos won’t be taking them lightly when the two teams clash this Thursday at Commonwealth Stadium.

Edmonton, which enters the game with a 3-2 record, is looking to halt a two game losing streak, and although the Argos represent what would seem to be a perfect way to get back on track, they aren’t looking to fall victim to what many may consider to be a “trap game.”

“I don’t believe in trap games. I don’t,” Edmonton head coach Jason Maas said, according to TSM. “When you’re focused on the process like we’ve been this year and you just say it’s week-to-week, your record is 0-0. You don’t stack wins. You don’t stack losses. You’re just trying to go 1-0.”

“We’ve got to win this week. That’s all our focus is . . . it doesn’t matter what anybody’s record is. Whoever comes in this building has to leave with a loss. That’s our mentality,” Maas said.

“It’s just details and making sure we’re detailed no matter what,” Edmonton signal caller Trevor Harris said.

Harris has had his own string of impressive success against Toronto in the past.

“This is pro football,” Harris said. “There’s no gimmes in pro football. We know that they’re going to be hungry. Their backs are against the wall and they’re ready to fight. We have to be too.”
