Edmonton predictions

So we all know this is a huge game for us and Iam just asking for some of your thoughts.Can we win this game?
I think we can with Edmonton losing 5 in a row this is a huge opportunity to get ahead. :cowboy:

Probably not,

Every time this team was given us a glimmer of hope, Henry et. al. (except for Congi and Williams) find a way in the next game or two to come out completely flat and come out with a loss, we maybe have a 5% chance of winning this week.

Yes Edmonton has just swapped out their O coordinators and they're struggling, but everytime we have have hade "gimmes" in Winnipeg this year for instance, we have come out completely flat and/or fumbled away the game. Friday night, we will come out completely flat and lose the game, I'm just following our "being losers since 99" trend, thats all.

Oskie Wa Wa !!!!!

:D :rockin:

Can we? Yes.
Should we? Yes.
Will we? Probably not.

That’s the way things seem to work with this team.

It’s a big game. A win would pretty much secure a playoff spot. A win combined with a Toronto loss would mean we just have to match Toronto in the next 3 weeks and beat them by 9 or more in the last week of the season to get a home playoff game.

I predict a Tiger-Cat win.

Now that everyone has latched on to the up and down aspect of this team that routinely challenges our expectations for the next week, the expectations NOW are for a loss coming of a big home win against the Alouettes.

So then it stands to reason that since we expect a loss, that they will, instead, win.

Does that make sense?

The Eskimos are in a decline, with injuries, and continued offensive impotence resulting in new coaching adjustments.

Combine that with the Tiger-Cats' new, quiet and relaxed confidence that has replaced a frustrated, almost desperate search for answers.

I've a feeling that the team has finally begun to find its identity after all the off season changes and first half growing pains. The coaches and team have found niches for Cobourne and Stala once again.

Tiger-Cats 44
Eskimos 27

I know the team usually has a real let down of a game following a big one, but I can really see them hammering Edmonton by some ridiculous 44-7 score or something.

I see Walker and Cobourne having a big game together, especially if Sherritt is out.

As unlikely as it is, I’m at least hoping Montreal loses as we still have a chance to catch first. It’s not unheard of to see Montreal lose a ton of games and limp into the playoffs. Although if I remember right it was usually after getting out to a 10-2 start which isn’t the case.

I really hope they get all the receivers involved this game too. More Stala please.

Well… We should win this one…

So we’re going to lose badly.

I think we will definitely win, but not by the blowout score of two weeks ago. Possibly having Dyakowski and T Davis out, may make a difference on defense, but that could be offset by the offence haaving a great game.
Hamilton 24 - 27 Edmonton 17 - 21

Hey! You can't do that!

That's not a prediction!

Hamilton - 30
Edmonton - 19

I think that Edmonton has a better chance of winning with Kerry Joseph, the other 2 QBs just haven't shown anything.
But even though Joseph will put some points on the board with his scrambling, it won't be enough.

Oh alright then!! Hamilton 27 'mos 17

Better?? Musta bin drinkin' at the time.

Not sure if Hamilton of 2012 has learned to win on the road, yet.
What do we have - 1 win on the road all season? I think it was the one against SASK - not sure. But unless we learn to win on the road, expect another sad loss.... :cowboy: :cowboy: :cowboy:

:thup:
Musta bin drinkin' at the time.
"Musta bin"?

You can't remember?

You rock! :rockin:

Edmonton's backs are against the wall. They are a dangerous team. I dont see that intensity in the Tiger-Cats (havent seen it all season). The Cats also tend to fall flat after a big win such as last week. Edmonton by 12

I have been nearly incorrect in my Ticat predictions week in and week out this year. Right when it looks like they are on the verge of turning the corner and going on a streak, they stink the bed against a weak opponent. Edmonton is without their top defender in Sheritt, everything points to a Ticat win, maybe even a Ticat blow out. Because I picked Hamilton to win, they'll lose a close one :frowning:

I whole heartedly agree with that statement, Captain!
Thats exactly the way I thought.

It looks like we'll be missing Dyakowski and Torrey Davis. And we may be missing Rwabukamba and Beswick as well. But it has been confirmed that J.C. Sherritt will not play for the Esks, as you can see here: http://www.tsn.ca/cfl/story/?id=406673

I'm not too worried about Dyakowski being out, as I believe Baillargeon will do fine in taking Smart Guy's place. Davis would have been good to have against the Edmonton RBs. But I expect our RBs to have a good game against an Edmonton D that is missing Sherritt.

But this team can't seem to win away from 75 Balsam North, so I think EDM will win this one. Of course, I hope this Ticat team will prove me wrong. And as long as the Ticats lose by fewer than 43 points, then they'll win the season series.

Winning the season series doesn't matter when it comes to the crossover. If the two teams have the same record, the Cats will make the playoffs. For a team to cross over into the other division, they must have a better record than the third place team they will be replacing.

Hmm, it looks like you're right after reading what it said here: http://www.cfl.ca/page/game_rule_crossover

If the fourth-place team in division A [b]has more points, not tied[/b], than the third-place team in division B, the fourth-place team will crossover to division B, replace the third place team in division A, and compete against the second-place team of that division.
I find that interesting that the usual tiebreaking rules, [url=http://www.cfl.ca/page/game_rule_tiebreak]described here[/url] don't apply when it comes to the crossover. But those are the rules, apparently.

I think we can safely say that an Eastern team will not crossover to play in the West this year.
