Well that was nice game to watch. :thup: Antolin and Jackson were sensational! Even Gore, who is prone to dropping easy catches was on the money for most of the night. You gotta love the Lions' D. They have held the opposition to zero TDs now for 12 consecutive quarters of football.
I was really thinking that the way Ottawa took it to Winnipeg last week, the Lions would have a tough go of it. They surprised me. Gosh if these guys who took up the slack on Offence continue playing like this the coaches are going to have to make some pretty tough decisions when the starters return as in who to sit out for the next game.
I know tonight's game was not a litmus test but Ottawa is not a farm team. They have some very good players.
It will be exciting to see what the Lions do in their last 3 games. Winnipeg is still in the hunt for a cross over position so that game against the Lions will be very important. Edmonton is hoping to have home field advantage for the semi-final so they will not sit back against the Lions. Calgary may take it easy in its last game. It will be against the Lions but by then I think Calgary will have 1st place wrapped up.
Now, that the Lions have this win in the bag, the cross over is looking pretty darn good. More importantly, if the Offence plays its remaining 3 games like it did tonight the Lions may have a crack at 2nd place in the west. Who knows? I was not expecting the Lions to play as well as they did tonight. I'm holding my breath that the Lions did not dominate the game tonight only because they were playing Ottawa. :roll:
