“Hello, Edmonton. I’m Don Unamba, and I’m here to play football.” That’s basically how Unamba, 30, introduced himself to Eskimos fans with his body language on Sunday afternoon when he dove to make an interception on the first play of the first CFL pre-season game this year. “I couldn’t have written a better story for how that all played out,” said Unamba, one of three linebackers the Eskimos signed on the opening day of free agency on Feb. 12. “You come to a new team and to be able to make ...

The defence drew rave reviews during training camp, but it was the offence that gave a star performance in the Eskimos’ season-opener Friday at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. Quarterback Trevor Harris threw for 447 yards, and three touchdowns in his Eskimos’ debut as the Green and Gold entertained 25,263 spectators with 607 yards of net offence in a 32-25 CFL victory over the Montreal Alouettes. “The proof is in the pudding,” wide receiver Kenny Stafford said for anyone with ...

Now we know why quarterback Trevor Harris wanted Greg Ellingson to join him in Edmonton as a CFL free agent this past winter. The 30-year-old wide receiver caught nine passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns in Friday’s 39-23 CFL victory over the BC Lions in front of 24,016 spectators at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. “It means it’s official, right?” Ellingson said after the game. “I’m an Eskimo! “It feels that way, too, when you get in the end zone for the first time, and you ...

Sean Whyte kicked a club-record and career-high seven field goals Thursday night, but that was like bringing a knife to a gun fight. While Whyte was kicking three-pointers to account for all of the Eskimos’ scoring, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers put four touchdowns on the scoreboard to defeat Edmonton 28-21 in front of 25,336 witnesses at IG Field. “All this tells us is that we’re not going undefeated,” said Eskimos rookie Brian Walker (three defensive tackles, a quarterback sack and an ...

As he ran towards the end zone on the longest scoring play of his six-year CFL career, Natey Adjei started to worry that it was still too far away. “You don’t want to get caught, so you’re thinking, ‘I’m getting closer, I’m getting closer, just keeping running, keep running, feet don’t fail me,’ ” Adjei said on the 630 CHED post-game show after Thursday’s contest with the BC Lions. “It worked out,” he added. “Guys made some great blocks for me, and I was able to score, and there was no ...

Too many mistakes snapped the Eskimos’ 11-game winning streak against the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday afternoon. The Alouettes took advantage of the first two interceptions that Edmonton quarterback Trevor Harris surrendered this year, two missed field goals by Sean Whyte after a streak of 17 consecutive successful kicks, and five costly penalties to upset the Eskimos 20-10 at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium. “This is going to hurt, and this is going to sting for tonight,” Harris ...

A shutout is a rare feat in football, even when playing against a struggling team like the winless Toronto Argonauts, now 0-6. “I don’t think I’ve ever had (a shutout),” said third-year national safety Jordan Hoover, who caught his first career CFL interception in the third quarter. “Not in college, not in the pros, not that I can remember in high school. This is probably the first time.” But Thursday’s 26-0 victory in front of the season’s biggest crowd of 30,368 at The Brick Field at ...

No one could fault the Eskimos offence for a “never say die” effort at the end of Saturday’s CFL game at Calgary. A lightning-quick 65-yard drive from their own 28-yard line to the Stampeders 17 in only 32 seconds gave the Eskimos a chance to win a game in which they had only 78 yards of net offence in the first half and but one first down over six consecutive series. Rookie Tevaun Smith caught a 14-yard pass on third down while Kevin Elliott, stepped out of bounds after a 33-yard ...

When push came to shove Friday night, the Eskimos defence became defiant. The Ottawa RedBlacks may have marched down the field during the final 85 seconds at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium, but the Eskimos drew a line in the artificial turf at their own 11-yard line. After Ottawa’s Dominique Rhymes beat Anthony Orange (who was playing his first game since the season-opener on June 14) with an out-and-up play for a 33-yard gain with 59 seconds remaining, the veteran cornerback led ...

Quarterback Trevor Harris was “super frustrated” after last week’s victory over the Ottawa RedBlacks because he believes the Eskimos offence could be “scary good.” The Eskimos started tapping into that potential Friday night by revealing a killer instinct against the Toronto Argonauts. Harris passed for 420 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for two more himself as the Eskimos scored a season-high 41 points to sink the Argos 41-26 for a rare road victory in front of 16,490 spectators at ...

It took 118 minutes and 52 seconds for the Eskimos to finally score a touchdown against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers this year. “It put us back in the game,” international receiver DaVaris Daniels said about the glimmer of hope rookie receiver Tevaun Smith’s 75-yard pass-and-run TD provided the Esks with 68 seconds remaining in Friday’s rainy CFL game. “It gave us some life.” Unfortunately, Winnipeg’s Willie Jefferson crushed any thoughts of a miracle comeback by knocking Sean Whyte’s ensuing ...

The Labour Day Classic continues to play out like the 1993 movie, Groundhog Day, for the Eskimos. Just like actor Bill Murray, who was caught in a time loop and repeatedly re-lived the same day, the Eskimos experience a sense of déjà vu every Labour Day at McMahon Stadium. The Esks lost 25-9 to the Calgary Stampeders for the eighth year in a row on Labour Day Monday in front of 32,350 fans at McMahon Stadium. It represents the longest winning streak in the series by either team and the ...

Unfortunately, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats scored big-play touchdowns on three consecutive offensive plays in the first quarter and kicked a 34-yard field goal off the left upright on the final play of the game to defeat the Eskimos 30-27 and ruin another Ricky Ray appreciation night in front of 25,694 ...

Rookie receiver Tevaun Smith caught only one pass Saturday afternoon, but that’s all the Eskimos needed to snap a four-game losing streak. Smith made a difficult catch in double coverage at the back of the end zone to score his fourth touchdown of the season as the Eskimos defeated the Ottawa Redblacks 21-16 in a defensive battle played in front of 23,451 spectators at TD Place Stadium.

The Eskimos will have to wait to try to secure a CFL playoff berth. A 42-12 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in front of 23,411 spectators at Tim Hortons Field on Friday night put the Eskimos’ playoff hopes on hold for another week. Edmonton, 7-8, have to win just one of its final three regular-season games – or have the BC Lions (4-10), Toronto Argonauts (2-11) and Ottawa RedBlacks (3-11) all lose one more game – to qualify for the post-season.

Quarterback Logan Kilgore was a poster child for the way Head Coach Jason Maas wanted the Eskimos to play Saturday night. Maas asked his players to pay whatever price was required to make a play in order to win the CFL game against the BC Lions at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium. “Just make sure that you give it your all so we can punch our (playoff) ticket,” receiver Greg Ellingson said about the coach’s main message.

The final standings will show the Eskimos with their first losing record (8-10) since 2013, but it’s of little consequence to the Green and Gold right now. The Eskimos had been locked into a fourth-place finish in the West Division and a berth in the East Division Semifinal at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov, 10, against the Alouettes in Montreal for more than three weeks. Saturday’s regular-season finale was all about putting their best effort forward with a lineup that was missing starting ...

But all the Eskimos will get for the next week is a few restless nights, tossing and turning and wondering what might have been. An interception, lost fumble, and illegal punt helped the Hamilton Tiger-Cats score 13 unanswered points in the first quarter of Sunday’s East Division Final at Tim Horton Field. That’s all the ...
