I'm in a quandary regarding tonight's game between the Lions and Ottawa. The Lions have lost 3 in a row and the Offence has been decimated by injuries. The Offence is a shadow of its former self.
Ottawa destroyed Winnipeg last week and they are full of confidence. They will be gunning for the Lions.
Certainly I want to see the Lions beat Ottawa tonight to get back to their winning ways and to prove that they can win even with so many key players out of the game. However, I also want to see Ottawa salvage a dismal season.
Was Ottawa's win last week an anomaly or has the team finally put its act together? For almost 10 years CFL fans have been hoping Ottawa would return to the fold. It finally has but the opposition has not been kind to the RedBlacks.
2-11 is all Ottawa has to show for itself. That's demoralizing. I'm certainly hoping for a Lions win for obvious reasons but I also want to see Ottawa finish off with a string of victories. Burris has his work cut out for him as he faces one of the best Ds in the CFL. However, it seems the Lions' opposition doesn't need to score TDs to beat the Lions. It just needs a good FG kicker!
