Mathematically, the Lions hold destiny in their own hands. The Eskies will be coming into town next Friday. A Lions win and top spot in the West will be officially wrapped up. The Lions will have 24 points. Though Calgary mathematically can still end up with 24 points and be tied with the Lions by season's end, the Lions won their series against Calgary.
Edmonton played well and beat Saskatchewan in convincing fashion today but Joseph and company will be no match for a D that has dominated the CFL all season. I also believe that Lulay and the Offence is finally starting to gel. Back to back wins in their last two games without several of their key starters in the lineup speaks volumes about the Lions' depth. Though they have sustained some injuries the Lions remain a relatively healthy team. Their last two games demonstrate this.
Edmonton will play next week like there is no tomorrow so I'm sure the Lions will not waltz into BC Place as it the outcome is a given. The Esks have some real threats: Stamps, Charles. However, I do not think Joseph is the guy to get the job done. If it had been Mr. Slippery himself Ricky Ray I would have been nervous. He always made me nervous when he came to BC Place. I think the Lions will roll over the Edmonton Eskies next Friday in convincing fashion.
I'm sure Mr. Backer@OldClarke has something to say about that. 8)
