So we've hit the midpoint of the season. We're at 6-3. We're on pace to surpass last years offensive output by 100 points and cut 150 points from last years against totals. Count me as happily surprised with the turnaround as I guessed 6-7 wins on the season.
Heading into the 2nd half we have only 2 eastern division games - in Ottawa and Hamilton at home. Obviously we have the Riders twice coming up, we also have 2 against each of the Lions and Stamps, and one vs Edm, plus 2 bye weeks. Even a bad second half of the season with only 3 wins puts us at 9-9 on the year which would have been fantastic before the year started, but might be disappointing to fans now. Incredible.
vs. BC - split
vs. Stamps - win at home, lose in Calgary. Been forever since we've won in Calgary not feeling it this year.
vs. Riders - split
vs Edm, Ham, Ott - we take 2/3 of these games
That would give us a 5-4 record in the second half, 11-7 overall, should be enough to get us into the playoffs I think.
How's everyone thinking the second half of the season shakes out? Any holes (-cough Oline cough ) that we need to fix to get us over the hump?
