Lions change it up

Meeting a team two weeks in a row can breed predictability, so the Lions will look to throw a few curves into its game plan against the Montreal Alouettes at McGill Stadium Sunday morning.

"You have to adjust a few things, but you can't get away from who you are, philosophically," said Lions' centre Angus Reid. "We do what we do and we keep doing it. We just have to give them a few different looks and change things a little bit."

Reid said the game plan going into Sunday's contest has more to do with being ready for what Montreal will bring than what the Lions offer.

"You have to start preparing for their possible answers and we start looking at things they could do and looking for ways to defeat us, so they don't surprise us," said Reid.

Both teams will be busy strategizing based on last Friday's 46-14 Lions victory.

"Each week you have to plan the game differently and expect different looks," said quarterback Jarious Jackson. "I'm sure they're watching last week's film, so we can't necessarily come back and do the exact same thing."

The key, said Jackson, is to get off to a good start and take the momentum away from Montreal.

"For the most part I'm going to come out and try to complete some balls early and get into an early rhythm and not wait until the second quarter," said Jackson. "Hopefully, we can get things accomplished and started early."
