At the beginning of this season I predicted Montreal to finish 3rd in the east. I also predicted a Winnipeg/Calgary Grey Cup. I’am a straight shooter and I’ve probably been wrong more than right in my life.
I have to repeat something jm02 said earier in the season about rookie head coaches when people were knocking the hiring of Trestman compared to Austin last year. You were correct jm02!! I will now eat my words about my reluctance in giving the Alouettes the benefit of the doubt with a rookie head coach and an ageing starting QB. Saskatchewan have done extremely well this year but Montreal have put themselves into a position where they will very possibly play for the Grey Cup in their own backyard! I’am NOT an Als fan but credit where credit is due, the Als have and continue to earn full respect across this league and if they win the cup this year then all the power to the team and their fans!!! They will host the Eastern final and the Grey cup and I don’t believe it will matter who they meet in those games. Home field advantage will be “HUGE”! The words of many posters on our site say the Cup stays in the west this year but I wouldn’t be so confident about saying or thinking that any more! This well coached and talented Montreal team have and are about to prove many people wrong in their earlier season beliefs and I’am one of them. Hats off to you Montreal but I’ll still be hoping for a major Bomber upset!!! I can dream can’t I ??
Montreal/Calgary Grey Cup!!!
