Just wondering how people were thinking about the 2005 season and their predictions. Obviously there are alot of question marks but here goes nothing!
#1 - BC - Hard to deny a 1-2 Quarterbach punch like they have. As a Bomber fan I would love to be in that position. It doesn't matter if their "D" allows 40 pts. a game, they'll score 50!
#2 - Saskatchewan - As much as I don't want to admit it. The Riders almost have the same team now for the last couple of years. They know how to play together as a team and it will show. If Nealon can stay healthy, there is no reason why they shouldn't be a top contender.
#3 - Winnipeg / Edmonton - To close too call. We have an aging Eskimo offence against a completely new coaching staff with the Bombers. The Esks might pull out some veteran saavy, but then again, a fresh start with a new attitude may benefit a bunch of under achievers. If Maas can play more consistent and more importantly keep Khari off the field, they should be fine. If Kevin Glenn keeps his feet moving and the O-line gives a little better protection, we might see a deep throw this year! Better yet, we'll skunk the Riders again this year!
#4 - See Above
#5 - Calgary - Decent acquisitions. I think Copeland was a good pickup, but after that who do they give the ball to? Burris, in my opinion, is by far the most over rated QB in the league. You could have put Danny Barrett back in as QB with that Sask. offence and won. Also the newly found love for the Stamps makes me sick. Last year you didn't hear a word from a Stamp fan and for good reason. Now here we are 10 weeks away from the 2005 season and they are planning the parade route! Don't hurt your ankles when you jump off the wagon!
