From the Air
From a fans perspective, both quarterbacks Davis and Fajardo both played outstanding, completing the tough throws, running when the pass isn’t there, and being an overall leader. Dominique Davis, going into week 2 he had yet to throw a touchdown pass, but making up for it was his 3 touchdowns on the run, including the game winner against Calgary. Without a touchdown thrown for number 4, he goes into the game trying to get this season rolling by throwing a few touchdowns early in the game. Down 7-0 with a Cody Fajardo to Marcus Thigpen score, Dominique got the ball back, driving down with the drive ending in a Dominique Davis to Dominique Rhymes 20 yard touchdown, and a 2 point conversion catch by Caleb Holley gave us the lead 8-7. Fast forwarding farther into the game, Dominique Davis hit J.C Beaulieu and R.J Harris for touchdowns rallying up his stats to 30 completions, 354 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Dominique x Dominique
Both Dominique Davis and Dominique Rhymes connected 11 times gaining over 160 yards and a 20 yard touchdown completion. On the run, Davis was also able to carry the ball for 44 yards on 5 keeps.
Coming off a huge victory in Calgary, where Mossis Madu had ran for 100 plus yards, it was expected he’d do the same this week against Saskatchewan, although things changed, and he ran under half the amount he did last week, along with a 2 point conversion, he ran 14 times for 50 yards, while catching it 3 times for 8 yards. The offensive line was able to give him holes for most runs, but the problem for the run game may be that we just didn’t run him enough.
