well, in order to win 3 in a row in post season (likely away games), we may have to precipitate those with an additional 3 regular season wins just to qualify for the playoffs.
i.e. to win the Grey Cup, the Cats may have to win 6 of their 7 final games to do so.
sadly, the odds are stacked.
Technically, we can make the playoffs with only winning one more game...the final one against Winnipeg at Ivor Wynne.
IF Edmonton loses the rest of their schedule, and Winnpeg loses the rest of their schedule. That would place the cats tied with Edmonton (therefore they wouldn't get the crossover) and Two games ahead of WInnipeg. And given their schedules, and the way this season has gone, that is entirely possible.
However that is not the way I'd want it to happen and the cats wouldn't deserve to be in the playoffs....
Your delusion is refreshing but please. After we lose to BC on Friday, we head to Calgary to get stomped on. Then it's Winnipeg at home, and we have seen the stellar performances this year against Winnipeg. That game should make Joey Elliott look like the second coming of Anthony Cavillo and solidify him as Winnipegs starter next year. Finally end the season in the Skydome against a team that will be playing for home field advantage with Montreals slide. A the same time we have to hope that Winnipeg and Edmonton don't win one game.
The disturbing thing is with just a little strategy, just the odd half time adjustment, a coaching decision here and there that bordered on smart, ie. playing your new sack specialist in the most important game of the season (a game against a has been qb who didn't get hit all night) and this team could be in first place. But alas, we got dumb and dumber as our offensive and defensive coordinators and no playoff hope on the horizon. This season ended on Labour Day.
