Another loss, another nail in the Lions coffin. I think it is safe to say that the Lions’ chances of making the playoffs this year are slim to zilch. Once again the Lions found a way to implode by giving up a 25-6 lead against the Redblacks last night.
The SSK Roughriders are getting stronger and keep finding ways to come from behind or hold a lead. The same cannot be said for the Lions. Teams they should be beating they come up short against. While they have 4 games remaining, 2 of those games are against the Bombers, a team to be reckoned with. Edmonton has been on the skids but I can see them beating the Lions in their final meeting.
Out of their 4 remaining games the Lions may take a game but given their performance thus far I can’t see them winning enough games even to qualify for the cross-over. I cannot see the Lions beating out the Esks for that coveted position. Of the Esk’s 5 remaining games 2 of those games are against weaker opponents;aka Montreal and Toronto. One of the remaining games is against guess who? The Lions!
Okay… Here it is. A picture is worth a thousand words…
