"Oh and two doesnt mean anything about today or about tomorrow," he said Friday as they face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on TSN, today at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt.  "The only thing that matters is have we learned from those two games and have we learned to get better as a football team from those two games." After losing their season-opener 39-34 to the Toronto Argonauts in a game that came down to the last few plays, the Ticats found themselves down 16-0 in the first quarter last week against the Edmonton Eskimos. They ended up losing 30-20 as the game was marred by torrential rain at Guelphs Alumni Stadium, the teams temporary home this season while their new stadium is being built. Winnipeg (1-1), meanwhile, split its first two games against Montreal, losing the home opener 38-33 but bouncing back in the re-match with a 19-11 victory on the road. Austin said he addressed the 0-2 record at Fridays practice. "Its good to continue to reinforce the things that matter and to make sure they understand not to focus on the stuff that doesnt matter," he said. One thing that matters quite a lot to the teams new coach is the number of mental mistakes his players have made, particularly the number of penalties. The Hamilton offence currently has the second-highest number of yards penalized in the league (199) and has the second-worst giveaway-takeaway ratio (minus-3.) Winnipeg is the worst in this category at minus-6. When Austin was asked what worried him about the Bombers, he pretty much rhymed off everything from the teams imposing defence to quarterback Buck Pierce. Jets Womens Jerseys. "Watching him play, he has the ability to make plays under pressure," said Austin. The Ticats will need to "limit his playmaking ability," Austin added. As for the Blue Bombers defence, it currently leads the league in sacks (11) and fewest touchdowns allowed (3) and is second in points allowed (49). Meanwhile, Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris leads the league with 595 passing yards and is his teams leading rusher right now with 66 yards on 11 carries. He knows the Winnipeg defence will be gunning for him. "Those guys have done a great job of making it hard on the running game, making it hard on the quarterbacks to make quick decisions and get rid of the ball," he said. Burris is also turning a blind eye to his teams record. "Everybody has a point during the season where they have to iron out some things and for us its been here, early on," Burris said. The Ticats will be without injured running back C.J. Gable, who shares the league lead with three touchdowns. Chevon Walker, a stand-out for Hamilton last season before injury, will fill in for Gable. Wide receiver Andy Fantuz will be out for his second straight game with a lower-body injury after posting 155 yards against Toronto. Veteran linebacker Jamall Johnson recognizes his defence has something to prove. "Weve got to go out and show that we can compete with any offence in the league," he said. "Winnipeg has a good offence. Theyve got a good running back. Theyve got some good receivers and a tough quarterback who wants to compete. Weve got to go out and prove that were a fierce defence. "Were trying to bring that Ticat tradition back here. This is the next challenge for us."
