- “The chemistry between the quarterbacks and receivers is on point!”

After a round of preseason games, Roughrider fans are buzzing with excitement. A whopping 38% believe the offensive passing game looks excellent. Another 30% feel that talent and team chemistry are already forming early this year.

PREPARING FOR THE REGULAR SEASON
The pre-season is officially over, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders are gearing up for the regular season. General Manager Jeremy O’Day emphasized the importance of the pre-season in building momentum and evaluating the roster.
With a perfect pre-season record, the Riders are rolling into Week 1 with confidence. However, O’Day knows that the real test lies ahead during the ups and downs of the 18-game season. The team underwent substantial changes during the off-season, including the departure of veteran quarterback Cody Fajardo. But the new starter, Trevor Harris, looked solid in the preseason, impressing fans with his performance.
While the pre-season success is a positive sign, O’Day acknowledges that there’s still much to come. The Riders are eager to improve their 6-12 record from last season and make their mark in the regular season. Their journey begins on the road against the Edmonton Elks, a team that struggled with a home losing streak. It’s time for the Roughriders to show their strength and start the season on the right foot.
Stay tuned, Rider fans, as we’ll be here every step of the way, tracking the fan insights and sharing the excitement of the 2023 season.
