Matthew Shiltz, best known as a game manager quarterbacks get calls Friday night when the Tiger-Cats take on the visiting Argonauts.

Dane Evans has shoulder problems , the Tikats put the franchise QB on the injured list for one game.

As Toronto head coach Ryan Dinwiddie can attest, Silz is well equipped to lead his team to victory.
In 2021, Dinwiddie's first season as head coach, the Argos headed to Montreal on his third straight win. When Vernon Adams Jr. was sidelined due to injury, Alz turned to Silz. Silz was economical and efficient, protecting the football to complete 12 of 18 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns.

The Als won his 37-16 victory, but his 203-yard rushing, a career-best, was Williams, his stun back, who did the most damage for his yards. was.

Hamilton doesn't have a roster like Stanback, but the blueprint Tubbys should adopt came from Als last season.

Silz is not a quarterback who wins games alone. What he can't do is make a mistake and lose the game.

Als' defense forced McLeod his Bethel his Thompson his 4 interceptions and his 0 touchdowns. Toronto finished the night with a minus five turnover percentage.

Therefore, Tikatz must scrimmage to win his line, force turnovers, and play clean football.

Silz's track record speaks for the backup quarterback to have his moment, but he hasn't been able to sustain a high level of play. not.

"I told his men today (Thursday), don't take the situation lightly," the coach said. "We did it last year in Montreal and he put in a great performance against us."

For some strange reason, Hamilton rolled out an awkward QB rotation, We've seen Silz come into the game for Evans, who has a bigger arm and is a good passer.

Behind Silz on Hamilton's depth chart for Friday night's game at the Hammers are Jamie Newman and Jalen Morton. If you've never heard of either, you're not alone. He combined the two to achieve zero pass attempts.

Silz came to Hamilton in free agency after he spent three of his seasons in Montreal. Argos had some interest, but when concrete things were on the table, talks didn't go far enough.

The Friday night rematch is his second of his four of the two rivals. His fourth and final regular season meeting will be held on Labor Day.

Whether it's Silz getting the start for Tikatz or Brandon Banks returning to Hamilton for the first time, as usual, these he stories are rich when the two teams connect.

Hamilton made seven changes to his roster last week in his 34-20 loss to Boatman at BMO Field.

In addition to Evans, another notable loss for him in the Ticats' offense was Dynamic his receiver Bralon Addison. He announced on social media this week that he has suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.

Before joining the Tikats in 2018, Addison played for Argos, but training he was cut during camp.
Argos could get DeJon his Allen back at right tackle after playing in his line for the All-Canada offensive last weekend.

Toronto gave up three sacks in the first half, but he gave up none in the second half.

I think he could probably go," said Allen's Dinwiddie. "We'll have to see how he reacts (on Friday)."

Max Latour will make his debut of the season after standing in for Reinhardt last season, as veteran long snapper Jake Reinhardt moved into his sixth game with an elbow injury.

Eric Rodgers (quads) is back on the six-game injury list after returning for the first time this season last week.

Wind He Game

No one knows his field better than Tim Hortons Banks.

He has seen how capricious the wind is and how a gust of wind changes the game. "I spoke with Speedy the other day about how to deal with the wind. The wind can be blowing in one direction before the game and in another direction at the start of the game.

"Most of the time it comes out of the lake. I'd like to get some wind in the second and fourth quarters if possible."

Boris Bede scored a 51-yard walk-off field goal for a 24–23 victory.

"You must go with the flow, whatever the wind blows," said Bede. His pre-match routine includes kicking both sides of the field.

Bede recalls the wind blowing in the opposite direction before last year's game winner.

"Once I got out on the field, I started to calm down," he said, Bede. "Towards the corner, things have calmed down."

The rivalry defines the game between Argos and Tikatz. Last year, Bede felt it and enjoyed every moment.

"It's going to be a tough game. We've had tough games, but that's what you live for," he added. "They (Tikats) are gaining momentum through the stadium, so they try to keep the crowd down as quickly as possible."
