What basis do you have that the Lions are gonna win? Look, these teams are pretty evenly matched. But the one thing I'm gonna stick to is that we have the incentive.
It turns my stomach to think that the Eskis have a chance to represent the West at the Grey Cup in OUR locker room. Do you think that is on their minds?
Yes, yes, it happened in the 80's the Eskis came in and beat the Lions and went on to win the cup here. But you know what? Wally Buono wasn't coaching at that game, man! He is the consumate pro and mindgame master. He always says that players do not need any incentive other than the desire to excel and execute well on any given gameday, but don't you think he planted the incentive in Lions heads?
So who really would this affect? Who has the hottest heads and most emotional turmoil? The O-line and the D.
These guys did not get the respect they deserved the whole season.
