Congratulations to the Lions!
And especially congrats to the 13th man today.
You guys made life hell for our offence and were a big factor in the outcome.
Offence is all about timing and you completely disrupted us with the noise factor in that first half.
On the otherside of the ball, I picked the Lions for first place and to win the Grey Cup at the start of the year. And that was largely because of Dave Dickenson, who, when he is healthy is still the best QB in the league.
And he proved it today.
He was a machine out there in the first half, and even when we did get pressure, he somehow managed to ellude it and either get the ball away, or make something happen with his legs.
And the other reason I picked you, is because you have the best receiving corp in the league, and those guys definately stepped up today, with tremendous catches by Clermont and Jackson.
Clermont is the most physical receiver in the league and we just couldn't handle him today, and that catch in the back of the zone by Paris was as good as it gets--you just can't cover that.
Anyway, the BC Lions have been the best team all year and the only thing that will stop you winning the Cup now will be yourselves.
So enjoy the victory, but reload and off to Winnipeg, where I suspect the Rider faithful will by in large shift their support to the Lions.
I know I will be--guys like Dickenson and Clermont deserve a victory!
