If they play anywhere near how they played Sunday in demolishing the Ticats they could easily finish 1st or 2nd in East. How the hay did this happen?
Montreal is a train wreck, Popp is a dead man walking coach, wild man Cato now their QB; still have a very good to great defense, totally undisciplined as a reflection of their head coach.
Hamilton is showing signs of a tire-fire. Still have their primary asset in Zach Collaros but their defense is an atrocity; Austin appears to be coaching scared to boot.
Ottawa looked pretty solid to finish 1st or 2nd in east . . . now I'm not so sure. Henry appears to finally run out of gas and starting to qualify himself as a TSN panelist; the book on defending Trev Harris is finally out there, if they lose their next game panic will no doubt set in for Coach Campbell
So there we've got Toronto. Bilko Barker must have read the riot act after Ray was crushed. Love their receivers set, ferocious defense (this week) and above average special teams. If Lafavour manages to conquer a depleted bomber squad this Saturday he'll remain the #1 QB - as Willy undergoes restoration. Can't see all 3 eastern contenders getting to 9 wins - obviously 2 of them will cuz they play each other enough. The third place team might get to 8
and that means Wpg. has to win 2 of their final 7 games to get to 9 wins - I actually think they'll slump a bit but still win minimum 2, perhaps even 3. Edmonton at 5-6 needs to win 5 of 7 to get to 10-8 - - - - with Reilly that's achievable - however, their defense is downtrodden; esks might only win 4 to get to 9-9......... then the west will have a tie for third and the best record between the two tied teams will be awarded 3rd in West - the other team headed east.
