MONTREAL - The Alouettes could be pushed past their breaking point if Montreal ends up on the wrong side of another lopsided loss. Montreal lost to the BC on July 19 and the Toronto Argonauts last week by a combined score of 72-10 — their lowest two-game point tally in almost three decades — and will have a hard time against the high-scoring Edmonton Eskimos on Friday. Catch the game on TSN starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. "Theres always a breaking point," said head coach Tom Higgins, whose Alouettes have lost three games in a row and have not scored a touchdown in their last two. "Right now, — and Im not threatening anybody — we havent gotten to the breaking point, but it could be Friday. And I dont want it to be Friday. I would like for it to be smooth sailing, but there are still things that have to be tweaked here and there." Higgins said it wasnt time to sit quarterback Troy Smith, whos started all five games this season for Montreal (1-4), but the Alouettes coach wants his QB to start coming out of the gate firing. That hasnt happened much this season. Montreal has trailed at the half four times this year, has scored a league-low six touchdowns, and Smith has the worst pass rating amongst starting quarterbacks. Against the Lions, the 30-year-old Smith threw a measly 45 passing yards in three quarters of play before he was taken out in the fourth. B.C. took an early lead and never looked back, pounding Montreal 41-5. Against Toronto, the Als conceded four consecutive touchdowns en route to a 31-5 loss. But Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly, who has yet to beat Montreal in two career starts, doesnt think hell pick apart the Als defence when Edmonton (4-1) rolls into town on Friday. "I dont look at how many points theyve given up; I look at their personnel," said Reilly, who will make his 26th career start on Friday. "Theyre a very good defence. They have a lot of good athletes out there. We really have to be on our A game to go in and play against these guys. "The way their season has gone so far, you know theyre that much hungrier for a win. Theyre a dangerous football team to play against. Its going to be a hard-fought football game." The numbers, however, tilt heavily in Reillys favour. The Eskimos are unbeaten on the road so far this season (2-0), and theyre playing some of their best defence in years. Chris Joness men have given up the fewest yards in the Canadian Football League, have given up the fewest first downs, and have the leagues best pass defence. Edmonton has only allowed 84 points in five games this season — what the Alouettes have given up in their last nine quarters. "Dont think for a moment its a rollover game, that Edmonton will just come in here and take two points from us," said Higgins. "Id be very disappointed if the team had that kind of mindset. They dont." Off the field, Montreal has been doing what it can to shake things up. On Monday, the Alouettes added former NFL and CFL quarterback Jeff Garcia to their coaching staff. A week earlier, the Als brought on their former coach and CFL Hall of Famer Don Matthews as a consultant. But the additions behind the bench wont intimidate Reilly and the Eskimos offence. Edmonton is second in the league with nine passing TDs, and second with 35 rushing first downs. Wide receiver Adarius Bowman leads the league with 359 receiving yards. "Everybody on our offence can play," said Reilly. "Were not building around a single guy, a superstar. We go and execute based on what the defence is doing. Other guys in our offence have stepped up. We go into every game expecting to win, and knowing that we should win." The Eskimos also make a point of holding onto the ball for long drives, ensuring their opponents defence stays on the field. The team keeps possession of the ball, on average, for a league-best 32 minutes per game. Montreal, on the other hand, is dead last in that category. "Theyre going to pin their ears back," said Higgins, conjuring the image of an attack dog, ready to pounce. "Edmontons coming in and theyre licking their chops. Theyre thinking: Good, this is what were going to do. Were going to shut them out, and were going to score 50 points. And its our job to not let us be shutout, and not let them score 50 points." Over the last two games, Montreal has converted just 22 of 59 pass plays, and has not visited the red zone in its last 37 possessions. "You have to show up on game day with an understanding of what youre going to execute: be nasty, be tenacious, be a dog," said Smith. "Understand that were in a slump. We dont want to be here, so something has to change. Become a different player, so to speak, mentally, and hopefully you get a different outcome." Notes: Als slotback S.J. Green (ribs) and offensive tackle Josh Bourke (knee) will be game-time decisions on Friday. … In 1985, the Alouettes scored a total eight points in two consecutive matches. … Montreal has yet to win a game when trailing after the first quarter. … The West has won 13 of 15 inter-divisional matches this season. … The Eskimos are coming off their only loss of the season, after falling 26-22 to the Calgary Stampeders.

How we doing? Jackson said.OK, so how are the Knicks going to be?We believe were going to be a playoff team, Jackson said Friday, and then we dont know how far well be able to go, but were hoping for the best.It was an optimistic and possibly realistic view of the Knicks, who went 37-45 last season and missed the playoffs. Jackson was hired as team president late in the season, re-signed All-Star Carmelo Anthony, hired Derek Fisher as coach, and engineered a number of roster moves to make the team younger, deeper and quicker.He also hopes that makes them better, but the 11-time champion as a coach with the Bulls and Lakers realizes theres a process to building contending teams that the Knicks havent been following.Usually teams come into the playoffs and learn from being in the playoffs, and gradually assume the capabilities of carrying out the championship, Jackson said. I was fortunate to have a situation in L.A. where a team had gone into the playoffs. They had been swept a couple of times in the playoff run, but they had been in the midst of the playoffs and were able to win the very first year that I coached that team there, which was a ready-made team basically with tremendous talent. Very similar situation in Chicago.This team does not got a personality. Its got over 35 per cent of this team has changed, so we still have to kind of come together in a bonding way that creates trust, teamwork, identity, some things like that.But at least they have stability. The chaos of the Knicks 2013-14 season began just before training camp, when Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan shook up the franchise by firing general manager Glen Grunwald and hiring Steve Mills after the Knicks won 54 games and the Atlantic Divvision title.dddddddddddd Grunwald was a longtime friend of coach Mike Woodson, who lost his strongest supporter in the organization and had nobody to publicly back him when the team sputtered at the start.I think it feels much, much better now, Mills said. I think the addition of Phil to the team I think adds a different look in terms of creating a culture. I think that was important to Carmelo and I think its important as how we move forward as a unit. So I think theres a lot more stability, I see the sort of rhythm to how we need to build the team.Besides retaining Anthony, Jacksons biggest move was a trade that sent starters Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to Dallas that brought the Knicks veterans Jose Calderon and Samuel Dalembert. But Jackson and Fisher both expect the Eastern Conference to be tougher than the one that allowed Atlanta to make the post-season with a 38-44 record last season, so those moves may not be good enough for the Knicks.Fisher said Anthony is the only certain starter at the moment. He will begin figuring out the rest Tuesday at West Point, when he opens his first training camp as a coach.Jackson said it usually takes a team a month to six weeks from there to jell, which would mean he should have an idea of what the Knicks have by the time he returns to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving. But he cautions that things can change.Last year the Knicks had an injury right away to Tyson Chandler. Everything was kind of upset. J.R. Smith was suspended to start the season. All kinds of things hindered their progress and it affected their season, Jackson said. So we cant control that. We try to control what we can control, and the fact that we have pretty good supporting cast and we have some young players, we think that we can really get them playing hard and playing together, and thats what well try to do.
