Someone mentioned yesterday that Banks' game rates among the greatest all-time individual performances by a Tiger-Cat in the playoffs. (I would have replied in that thread, but I can't find where I read it anymore.) No doubt that's true, with 226 return yards for two TDs plus another 68 yards rushing and receiving. Spitting distance from 300 yards of offence.
Any other contenders for this list? A couple came to mind:
1984: Felix Wright's four interceptions against the Argos in the EDF to send us to the Grey Cup.
1985: Ken Hobart's five TD passes against Montreal in the EDF to send us to the Grey Cup again. (This after a year in which he was accused of being a one-trick pony as a rushing QB)
My brain stopped storing football stats at some point, and I don't have anything for the late 1990s. Never mind the time before I was born.
