There was a good point in that article. The the pressure is on the Riders, particularly Fajardo who has to live up the the hype placed on him last season. If Cody thinks he has a hard time with social media now, it will be way worse with another playoff loss.
A lot of times the difference comes down to 1.whos healthy 2.special teams 3.weather 4.momentum. Specifically for the west-semi both teams are healthy .both have 2 of the best kickers and equal for punting .Suppose to be 4c on Sunday which is beautiful for football in late November. I say it comes down to Calgarys momentum of playing good ball over the 2nd half of the season vs Sask home field advantage.
I'm looking forward to a couple of what should be great games. Will it be the Riders with home field advantage or the Stamps who seem to get the better of the Riders, at least recently more times than not. I'm going with Calgary in a close one.
In the East, I'd think Hamilton would have been the easy choice but they've been so inconsistent throughout the year and think this will give Montreal confidence going into Hamilton. Another close one but I'm going with the home team.
Let’s just say the west matchup is far more intriguing and close than the east matchup. While the als are the team that gives the ticats the most difficulties at Hamilton, they are also significantly weaker on defense than Hamilton. Offense imo mtl tho have a clear advantage. Qb is close but running back and receivers isn’t even close. Mtl got imo the two best receivers in the game while having the best running back as well. While also having arguably the best oline in the game. But defensively they are significantly worse than Hamilton like it isn’t even close on defense. If mtl don’t turn it over on the pass like they have done a lot this season they can win it
Stamps should win but if Bo is throwing picks we are screwed
Those 3 points the Bombers put up in the first half with their starting O was mighty impressive last week but if they think it’s a cake walk to the cup better wake up
Stumps??? Is that all you got. Bo has been a great qb whether you like it or not. The Calgary Stampeders have been easily the class of the league whether you like it or not until the bombers finally won a cup after 29 years. Let's see if those bombers can match the Stamps for the last 15 years
Well the guys over at 3DN have weighed in with their Semi-Final Predictions .
For what it's worth if their picks are correct for the most part it's looking like it's going to be a Ham vs Tor EF and Calg vs Wnp WF .
