Saturday’s preseason game was going to be about Vince Young.
The 34-year old quarterback was to get a lot of work but a hamstring injury has stopped that.
However, there is a lot more to watch for Rider fans to get a sense of 2017 success.
Sticking with the quarterbacks, can Bryan Bennett turn a great camp into a solid game day performance? Brandon Bridge is described as a gamer. He may not practice well but turns it on in games. Is that the case? The Riders need to see they have a deep pool of three QBs with Kevin Glenn as number one.
The run game needs to be settled on a feature back.
The defensive secondary has been a wide open battle as the last line of defence in Saskatchewan is not at all settled.
Injuries to the linebacking corps in camp, as well as off-season departures, mean they need a player or two to standout.
While it isn’t the Vince Young show, Saturday’s game will leave Rider fans a lot to chew on. That is, if you don’t get distracted by walking around the new state of the art facility.
