CFL on TSN analyst Dave Naylor takes a look at three keys to success for each team heading into the 2012 regular season.
1. Defensive ends
A year ago it was Stevie Baggs and Justin Hickman on the ends for Hamilton. With Baggs released and Hickman in the NFL, Hamilton has to hope that former Eskimo Greg Peach and a host of newcomers can get the job done.
2. The kicking game
It's hard to say exactly how many games Justin Medlock won for Hamilton last season with his kicking and punting. He's now in the NFL, leaving the Tiger-Cats counting on Luca Congi, the former Saskatchewan kicker who is coming off an injury, and Australian Josh Bartel, who has never played this kind of football before.
3. What does Henry have left?
Henry Burris is just two years removed from a 2010 season in which he was the league's Most Outstanding Player. But after losing his job to Drew Tate in Calgary last season, the 37-year-old has much to prove.
