Tino Sunseri is suddenly getting a bit of a push from below.
The second-year quarterback didn't exactly have the start he was looking for on Saturday against the RedBlacks completing just two of his four pass attempts for 16 yards in the first quarter.
"Whenever you step on to the field for the first time you obviously need to get back into the rhythm of things," said Sunseri.
While Sunseri looked average in his first start of his second season, the pivots below him caught some attention.
Darian Durant is learning on the fly this year.
With the on-going injury to Chris Getzlaf, the veteran pivot is dealing with three new starting receivers at his disposal with his eyes mostly on Ryan Smith, Eron Riley and Brett Swain so far.
When Durant made his way into the second quarter of Saturday's game, he made everything look easy; he was perfect on his first drive ending in a touchdown to Swain. However, a lot of work went into making it look so easy.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced their first round of cuts.

At the end of the day the outcome didn't really matter, but the 2014 Saskatchewan Roughriders season is off on the right foot.
At times it even felt like 2013 with the Riders starting slowly but ultimately finding their way in a 21-17 win over the Ottawa RedBlacks at Mosaic Stadium on Saturday.
The game was far more important for evaluating what the players can do. Coaching staff and fans learned a few things about new players and got to see an apparent battle brewing for kick returner.
The Dustin Boulet Memorial Slo-pitch Tournament is in full swing at W.A. Reid Park this weekend as friends and family remember the fallen Saskatoon man through his favourite sport.

Final preparations are being done to Mosaic Stadium in Regina to get it ready to host the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Ottawa RedBlacks pre-season game Saturday afternoon.
It’ll be the first Rider game at the stadium since the team’s monumental 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the 101st Grey Cup last November.
The last time the Saskatchewan Roughriders played at Mosaic Stadium they won the Grey Cup.
On Saturday the Green and White takes on the Ottawa RedBlacks but the first game of the pre-season won't make for a nice day.
Terri Lang with Environment Canada says, "to be prepared for showers and thundershowers."
A low-pressure system will be hovering over Regina in the afternoon right around kick-off time at 4:00 p.m.
As much as Rider fans wish for a nice day to watch the game, it likely won't stop them from coming out.
