So long as Chungh heals before the first playoff game the team is OK. If he's out the season - and who knows with bombers crazy non-disclosure information system - they're sunk. Couture is simply not strong or experienced enough to carry the mail.
And where they finish is up in the air - unless they take matters into their own hands and kill the redblacks back to back. That guarantees 2nd in west and a home game for Wad to sell tix for.
A split vs. Ottawa guarantees not having to cross-over - but 50/50 abdicating their home game opportunity . . . . and then their opponent becomes either Edmonton or BC.
Losing both to Ottawa almost certifies the bombers for cross-over duties. Who knows who they'll play although by virtue of crossing over the bombers will either face Ottawa in the semi; more likely the east final. They'd still have to get thru the Als or more likely the Ticats in the east final.
