Whoever said the Cats, have nine lives…was right.
Going into September and fall football, for our Cats…I think our guys have a real shot, at a play-off spot in 2008.
Unless the West implodes, ( not very likely ) a cross-over to the East will happen. Second place, and a play-off spot for the Cats…will be the goal, going into the fall run.
The Argo’s…you think we have trouble in Steeltown ?
Just look down the QEW at Toronto, and I’ll take our problems in Hamilton…any day of the week.
The Blue Team…is imploding from the inside out, our Cats should be able to pass them in the standings, and stay ahead of them…I predict the Argo’s are in fact heading towards the basement, and will finish 4th in the East.
The Bombers…I believe this is the only team that our Cats, have to stay ahead of. And I believe, our Cats, can do just that. The real race in the East for a second place finish, and a play-off spot is against Winnipeg.
Montreal…They have blasted out of the gate, this year…however, should A/C get hurt, and miss several games in the latter part of the season…( it has happened, many times before ), it may not just be the runaway, that the fans in Montreal, think they have.
The Ti-Cats…Regardless of what has happened so far this season…the other teams in the East, with the exeption of Montreal, have not faired ‘well’ against the Cats. Winnipeg and Montreal both have beaten the Cats, but in the Bombers case…Hamilton beat themselves, with turn-overs.
In closing…injuries to starters and a whole lot of new faces, have added up to a slow start for our Cats in 2008. It’s been a learning curve…for not only the players, but also the coaching staff. I do believe however, that if our starting guys can stay healthy, and all the ‘new faces’ can keep the on field mistakes to a minumum…a play-off spot in 2008, will happen. It all starts on Labour Day. :thup:
