We play the Bombers next which is safe to say the Gades are favored in that one (not saying it's a gimme)
Then a well deserved week off with a BYE which means Ottawa will have 2 weeks to get super healthy and prepare for one of their most important games (Montreal) and possibly a shot at a clinch on home turf for the playoffs.
Then BC at home - we played them tough in BC now we get to host them @ FCS. Should be a beaut of a game. Our sick D vs their hot O. Splitting with them would be a dream.
Then another home game vs Winnipeg again, then Calgary - These 2 games will help Ottawa hit it's stride on Offence.
Toronto (game 1) - finally a shot to show the CFL and the town that we are not 2nd fiddle - by then Allen will be injuered AGAIN and if not after playing Ottawa he will be!!
Hamilton (game 2)
Bye #2 (super good timing to get healthy for the last big push)
Hamilton (game 3 YEAH we play 3 games vs Hamilton = we make playoffs!!)
Montreal (game 3)
Toronto (game 2)
Conclusion: pretty good sched leading into the playoffs. The BC game will be a challenge. Also note the amount of games vs eastern division teams. By winning the Hamilton and Montreal series Ottawa will be in a good postion to host a game in the playoffs. The other thing too to take in consideration is the fact that Ottawa plays Tdot very late in the series. This could be a positive thing as Damon Allen is currently playing injured and at some point in time he may have to miss a game. If this happens the Argos are in trouble. All this to say, if the Gades can keep winning they came write their own destiny
