Last week Climie said this on TSN. Riders might go 9 and 9. To many injuries. Riders are 6 and 1 and have 11 games left. 9 and 9 would be Riders going 3 and 8 starting with Edmonton game. Even with injuries I think Riders can win 5 or 6 of 11 to play. Win 11 or 12 games in regular season.
How many do you think Riders will win this year? Will 12 wins be enough for Riders to finish 1st?
I think 12 wins will be enough this year. But at 6-1, we could be anywhere from 10-8 to 14-4. It remains true that the first 9 games are a cakewalk compared to the last 9, so I called for us to go 7-2 so we could finish at least 10-8. Last year, we went 7-2, then 5-4. We have a shot at 8-1, and if we get there, I'll call us at 12-6-14-4. I don't see us going 3-8. But 3-6 down the stretch could happen.
I expect us to beat Edmonton and Winnipeg, so I expect 8-1. that should give us enough momentum to be 12-6+.
Climie hates the Riders. Loves the Stamps. He never says good things about Riders. Last year I thought it was because of Coach Austin. Some problem with them. But its the same with Coach Miller this year. Tired of him. Very tired of Climie.
