For those of you that didn't watch Friday night's CFL affair between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes, you might have missed the block of the year in professional football.
After Hamilton's Henry Burris threw an interception to Montreal defensive back Jerald Brown, Tiger Cats wide receiver Onrea Jones attempted to make the tackle.
Onrea didn't have a chance to make the play after getting flattened by Montreal's Kyries Hebert:

What gets BC excited about the Canadian Football League? Not much. It is funny, however, to look at CFL rosters, where they list guys as “Imports” or “Non-Imports.” Anyway, let’s get to this huge hit in the Week 9 game featuring Montreal vs. Hamilton. QB Henry Burris, still a legend up north, launches a pass that is picked off.
That’s bad news for his teammate, Onrea...
Any hopes of DE Jonathan Fanene being able to contribute this season looked to have been dashed when he injured his knee early in training camp, and hadn't been able to recover from it. It's a tough break for the player and the team because he's a tough SOB that would've fit quite well in the Patriots rotation.
"Just didn't work out," head coach...
Rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick may not make his pro debut this week after all.
The Cincinnati Bengals' top draft pick had to sit out practice on Monday because his left knee was sore. He hurt the knee while working out over the summer and had to miss much of training camp and the first three preseason games.
Kirkpatrick was cleared to fully practice last week. Coach Marvin...
Sure it doesn’t have the glitz, glamor or popularity of the NFL, but the CFL does feature some pretty good players capable of pulling off some pretty terrific plays, as evidenced by this mammoth, decleater of a block delivered by Alouettes safety Kyries Hebert on Tiger-Cats receiver Onrea Jones following a Henry Burris pick.
Jones’ focus is squarely on the Als’ Jerald Brown...
Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick sat out of Monday's practice with a sore left knee. Kirkpatrick was first cleared to practice last week after fracturing a bone in his left knee in July, days before the start of training camp. The 17th overall pick in the 2012 draft out of Alabama was pushing to see his first preseason action in Thursday's preseason finale at Indianapolis...
The Bengals offense hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far in the preseason, and that’s never a good sign, as teams who struggle on offense in the preseason tend to struggle as much, if not more during the regular season. Of course Pro Bowl TE Jermaine Gresham is out, but the team did fine while he was injured during the regular season last year.
The team has also been missing...
Check out this huge block laid in a recent CFL game between the Montreal Alouettes vs. the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Hamilton wide receiver Onrea Jones gets absolutely blown up on a Kyries Hebert blindside block during an interception return. Have fun eating your meals through a straw for the next few weeks, Onrea.
