I've been looking through a copy of the 1985 Canadian Football Guide, here what it said about the Tiger-Cats.
Doing things the hard way,1984 finish 6-9-1in East,fifth overall,Grey Cup finalist.
Strengths:Decent linebacking strong kicking adequate running game
Weaknesses: two inexperienced back-up QBs porous offensive line no speed at receiver position holes in defensive secondary
1985 consensus Fourth in East, Ninth overall.
Seems I remember we went to the Grey CUP!
We went into that season with Jeff Tedford and Pete Gales as our top 2 QBs.
Then everyone learned who Ken Hobart was.
1986 Hamilton Tiger-Cats under Al Bruno; Big time sipped from Lord Grey's mug winning 39-15 over Edmonton in Van.
1985 Tiger-Cats were first in the east I believe.
Didn't read the thread properly; Hamilton did go to the Cup in 85 and the Lions won 37-24. I've had a few cold ones. :?
Indeed. The Cats were 8-8 and first in the East.
