Something to throw round:
I got thinking about next year's schedule (of course with an assumption that the teams stay relatively the same) and therefore the number of wins and wondered if the following scenario is probable if not perhaps reasonable to consider.
If we play the Argos 4 times next year which I believe will be the case we should win three of those games. We are more than due to take at least one game from Saskatchewan and perhaps another against Edmonton. Beating B.C. in the regular season would be tough, Calgary as well may be a stretch, though we did do that last year.
We should win at least one from Winnipeg and one from Montreal. By my calculations that leaves us realistically 7-11. Of course I would love to sweep another Eastern division team which would make us 9-9. I realize for us beating a team twice has been a problem, three times very hard and four times is very very hard for any team. I really believe we are going to be much better than the Argos next year. (Labour Day should be huge next year!!)
I think anything better than this comes from a significant change to the defence but that's the debate of another couple of threads.
Any other thoughts?
