With a veteran coaching staff, loads of talent on each side of the ball and a potentially soft schedule (Hamilton twice, Edmonton twice and Saskatchewan), the Argos could make a legitimate run at first in the East.
lol... How often has two games against the Eskimos been refered to a "soft schedule"? I love this season!
With a stunning eight interceptions in the first 10 games, Miles is on pace for 14 this year. The single-season CFL record is 15 - Al Brenner, Hamilton, 1972.
I sure hope he makes it. That would teach the Don a lesson. He was the one who wanted Miles out of Montreal. Miles must be my favourite non-Alouettes CFLer.
The most outstanding defensive player in the league last year, Grace was benched for Calgary's last game and is clearly in a dogfight for his job. Hard to imagine - but it's reality with the Stampeders.
It's weird, but the same thing happened to Anwar Stewart after he was named Defensive player of the year in 2004. Last year, he was sometimes benched and his job was on the line.
Now same thing happens to ever efficient Grace. This prompts the question: Are we expecting too much from guys coming out of a stellar season?
I'm with you on that KK, but I'm not writting the Esks out of anything until they are mathematically done. Over the decades, I've seen them pull so many games out of the fire and make some interesting (And heart breaking) come backs.
Well Kanga, today the Eskimos got a new sponser! Hoover Vacum’s they were looking for a team that worked like their product! I too will not count out the Eskies that have talent but their they have not put it all together yet!
The streak dies.
Calgary beats Sask in semi, loses to BC in final… Toronto beats the peg, loses to Montreal… BC wins cup. Rioting ensues, Vancouver burns to the ground.
Following year Lions play out of makeshift field behind farmer’s field in Fort Nelson, Grey Cup is switched from Toronto to Fort Nelson to reward the BC fan’s perserverence, and the 2007 Grey Cup is won by Calgary (having dominated the season after the return of Marc Boerigter to the tune of a 16-2 record, both losses coming inexplicably at the hands of the expansion Ottawa Rough Riders) over Winnipeg in a game which will forever be known as “The Mud Bowl” due to rainy conditions and the fact they’re playing in a farmer’s field.
The epic battle features astounding rushing performances by both Charles Roberts and Joffrey Reynolds, and ultimately comes down to a last second field goal by “Automatic” DeAngelis - a 53 yarder that bounces off the crossbar and in. Yeah. That’s all I can forsee right now.
